ESAB Corporation Announces First Quarter 2022 Results

Reported $0.96 EPS from continuing operations and achieved $1.17 of adjusted EPS
Grew sales 14%, including organic growth of 18%, to a record $648 million
Achieved adjusted EBITDA of $109 million, up 16% versus prior year
First quarter results in-line with expectations and reaffirmed 2022 full year guidance
Successfully completed separation from Enovis Corporation on April 4, 2022

North Bethesda, MD, May 10, 2022 -- ESAB Corporation (“ESAB” or the “Company”) (NYSE: ESAB), a world leader in fabrication and specialty gas control technology, announced today its financial results for the first quarter of 2022. ESAB operated as part of Enovis Corporation (formerly Colfax Corporation) for the entire first quarter of 2022, and the historical financial measures presented in this release were derived from Enovis’ accounting records and are presented on a carve-out basis.

The Company reported record sales of $647.9 million, an increase of 14% on a reported basis, or 18% organically before currency translation impacts. Adjusted EBITDA during the first quarter of $109.3 million rose 16% compared to $94.3 million in the prior year quarter, and adjusted EBITDA margin expanded 30 basis points to 16.9%. ESAB also reported Net income from continuing operations of $58.4 million, $0.96 per share and adjusted net income of $1.17 per share. The Company generated operating cash flow of $16.1 million and free cash flow of $22.3 million, excluding outflows related to the Company’s separation from Enovis Corporation, formerly known as Colfax Corporation (the “Separation”).

“Our strong momentum from 2021 continued into the first quarter of 2022,” said Shyam P. Kambeyanda, President and Chief Executive Officer of ESAB Corporation. “Our revenue grew substantially with strong demand for our innovative equipment, gas control and consumable solutions as well as strong price realization that offset continued inflationary pressures. We have now successfully completed the transition to an independent public company. We are focused on creating long-term shareholder value by leveraging our ESAB business system (EBX) to drive growth, margin expansion and strong free cash flow.”

The Company reported strong first quarter results, and reiterated its full year 2022 guidance, which excludes Russia for the remainder of the year. We continue to expect $2.45-$2.50 billion of sales with organic growth of 4%-7% and total reported sales growth of 2%-4%, full year adjusted EBITDA of $400-$420 million, adjusted EPS of $3.85-$4.05 and free cash flow of greater than $210 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Adjustments

ESAB has provided in this press release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“non-GAAP”). These non-GAAP financial measures may
1


include one or more of the following: adjusted net income from continuing operations, adjusted EBITA (earnings before interest, taxes and amortization), adjusted EBITDA (adjusted EBITA plus depreciation and other amortization), organic sales growth, free cash flow, and ratios based on the foregoing measures. ESAB also provides adjusted EBITA/EBITDA and adjusted EBITA/EBITDA margin on a segment basis.

Adjusted net income from continuing operations represents Net income from continuing operations excluding Restructuring and other related charges, acquisition-related intangible asset amortization, and separation costs. Adjusted net income includes the tax effect of non-GAAP adjusting items at applicable tax rates. ESAB also presents adjusted net income margin from continuing operations, which is subject to the same adjustments as adjusted net income from continuing operations. Adjusted net income per diluted share from continuing operations is a calculation of adjusted net income from continuing operations over the weighted-average diluted shares outstanding.

Adjusted EBITA excludes from Net income from continuing operations the effect of Restructuring and other related charges, acquisition-related intangible asset amortization, separation costs, Income tax expense and interest income, net. Adjusted EBITDA further excludes depreciation and other amortization from the adjusted EBITA calculation. ESAB presents adjusted EBITA and adjusted EBITDA margins, which are subject to the same adjustments as adjusted EBITA and adjusted EBITDA, respectively. Further, ESAB presents these non-GAAP performance measures on a segment basis, which excludes the impact of Restructuring and other related charges, acquisition-related intangible asset amortization, separation costs from segment operating income for adjusted EBITA and further exclude depreciation and other amortization for adjusted EBITDA.

Organic sales growth excludes the impact of acquisitions and foreign exchange rate fluctuations.

Organic sales-per-day growth represents organic sales growth adjusted for additional or fewer selling days calculated based on the global average selling days particular to each segment.

Free cash flow represents Cash flows from operating activities excluding cash outflows related to the Company’s separation from Enovis Corporation and discontinued operations, less Purchases of property, plant and equipment net proceeds from sale of certain properties.

These non-GAAP financial measures assist ESAB management in comparing its operating performance over time because certain items may obscure underlying business trends and make comparisons of long-term performance difficult, as they are of a nature and/or size that occur with inconsistent frequency or relate to discrete restructuring plans that are fundamentally different from the ongoing productivity improvements of the Company. ESAB management also believes that presenting these measures allows investors to view its performance using the same measures that the Company uses in evaluating its financial and business performance and trends.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information calculated in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures presented above to GAAP results has been provided in the financial tables included in this press release.
