(NYSE: UNVR) ("Univar Solutions" or "the Company"), a global chemical and ingredient distributor and provider of value-added services, announced today its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.

  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $146.4 million compared to $158.8 million in the prior year fourth quarter. Adjusted EBITDA margin(1) of 7.2 percent compared to 7.4 percent in the prior year fourth quarter.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities decreased to $145.3 million from $329.7 million in the prior year fourth quarter. 
  • Liquidity as of December 31, 2020 was $855.0 million inclusive of $386.6 million of cash-on-hand and additional availability under committed, asset-based credit facilities.

Full Year 2020 Financial, Operating and Strategic Highlights

  • Net income (loss) of $52.9 million compared to $(100.2) million in the prior year; Adjusted net income(1) of $211.9 million compared to $231.6 million in the prior year.
  • Earnings (loss) per diluted share of $0.31, compared to $(0.61) per diluted share in the prior year. Adjusted earnings per diluted share(1) of $1.25 compared to $1.40 in the prior year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) decreased 9.7 percent to $635.8 million, and Adjusted EBITDA margin(1) expanded 10 basis points to 7.7 percent from the prior year.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities decreased to $226.9 million from $363.9 million in the prior year.

"I am pleased with the progress the team has made against our strategic objectives, meeting the challenges of remote working, variable supply and demand, as well as macroeconomic uncertainties. Our financial results reflect the hard work of our dedicated team members, the strength of our supplier and customer relationships, and the benefit of our investment in keeping digital at our core. I am pleased we have made good progress against our Streamline 2022 (S22) goals by executing on non-core divestitures, expanding our supplier network, and moving closer to completing our business systems migration and Nexeo integration," said David Jukes, president and chief executive officer.

"Looking to 2021, although the exact timing of the economic recovery is uncertain, our expected full-year Adjusted EBITDA guidance range of $630 million to $650 million reflects underlying performance in our on-going businesses above expected general industrial growth levels in each of our regions to offset the expected softer essential end markets performance. We are committed to realizing strong net free cash flow, while still driving towards our S22 goals of de-leveraging and improving Adjusted EBITDA(1) margins to 9% by the end of 2022. Univar Solutions is very well positioned in our markets to serve our supplier and customer needs and we expect to execute on new opportunities and grow shareholder value."

Consolidated Results

Univar Solutions reported net sales of $2.0 billion, a decrease of 5.5 percent on a reported basis and 6.1 percent on a constant currency basis(1) compared to the prior year fourth quarter. Lower sales were driven by a reduction in sales due to the Environmental Sciences divestiture, lower demand in the global industrial end markets, and price deflation affecting certain products, partially offset by higher demand for products in certain essential end markets(2).

Gross profit (exclusive of depreciation) of $484.5 million decreased 7.2 percent on a reported basis and 7.7 percent on a constant currency basis(1) driven primarily by the Environmental Sciences divestiture, price deflation affecting certain products, and lower demand in the global industrial end markets, partially offset by higher demand for products in certain essential end markets(2). Gross margin decreased by 40 basis points to 23.8 percent compared to the prior year fourth quarter, driven primarily by the inclusion of Brazil VAT recovery benefit in the prior year and an unfavorable mix resulting from the Canadian Agriculture wholesale distribution exit.

Univar Solutions reported net loss of $33.7 million, or $(0.20) per diluted share, compared to net loss of $55.1 million, or $(0.33) per diluted share, in the prior year fourth quarter. The decrease in net loss was primarily due to lower taxes partially offset by the loss on the sale of the Canadian Agricultural services business.

Adjusted earnings per diluted share(1) of $0.27 in the quarter decreased from $0.29 in the prior year fourth quarter driven primarily by lower Adjusted EBITDA, partially offset by lower interest expense.

Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $146.4 million decreased $12.4 million, or 7.8 percent, compared to the prior year fourth quarter, or a decrease of 7.5 percent on a constant currency basis(1). The decrease was primarily due to price deflation affecting certain product margins, lower demand in the global industrial end markets, and the Environmental Sciences divestiture, partially offset by the realization of Nexeo net synergies, favorable product mix, and cost reduction measures.

Net cash provided by operating activities decreased to $145.3 million from $329.7 million in the prior year fourth quarter, reflecting a more normalized level of net working capital in the 2020 fourth quarter.

The Company's leverage ratio(1) at December 31, 2020 was 3.5x compared to 3.8x at September 30, 2020.

Segment Results

USA:

  • USA external sales declined 9.5 percent during the quarter, primarily due to the Environmental Sciences divestiture, energy headwinds, price deflation affecting certain products, and lower industrial end market demand, partially offset by higher demand for products in certain essential end markets(2).
  • Gross profit (exclusive of depreciation) was lower by 8.5 percent. Gross margin increased 30 basis points to 24.7 percent, reflecting favorable product mix, including higher demand from essential end markets(2).
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) decreased 11.0 percent to $91.1 million due to lower industrial end market demand, energy headwinds, and the Environmental Sciences divestiture, partially offset by Nexeo net synergies, higher demand for products in certain essential end markets(2) and cost reduction measures. Adjusted EBITDA margin(1) decreased by 20 basis points to 7.4 percent primarily due to higher gross margins being more than offset by warehousing, selling and administrative expenses (WS&A).

EMEA:

  • EMEA external sales increased 2.1 percent, or decreased 3.0 percent on a constant currency basis(1). The decrease was primarily due to lower industrial end market demand, partially offset by higher demand for products in certain essential end markets(2).
  • Gross profit (exclusive of depreciation) increased 4.5 percent, or decreased 1.6 percent on a constant currency basis(1), and gross margin increased 60 basis points to 24.5 percent driven by favorable product mix, including higher demand from essential end markets(2) and beneficial Brexit impact.
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) decreased 5.5 percent to $29.4 million on a reported basis, or 10.3 percent on a constant currency basis(1), compared to the prior year quarter. This was primarily due to declines in pharmaceutical finished goods as anticipated and lower industrial end market demand, partially offset by higher demand from products in certain essential end markets(2) and beneficial Brexit impact. Adjusted EBITDA margin(1) decreased 50 basis points to 6.9 percent primarily due to higher WS&A.

CANADA:

  • Canada external sales increased by 0.9 percent, or decreased 0.6 percent on a constant currency basis(1). The decrease was primarily due to lower energy demand and price deflation affecting certain products, and the Environmental Sciences divestiture, partially offset by sales from the Canadian Agriculture wholesale distribution and industrial chemicals sales.
  • Gross profit (exclusive of depreciation) decreased by 9.7 percent, or 10.9 percent on a constant currency basis(1), and gross margin decreased 230 basis points to 19.5 percent, primarily related to unfavorable product mix resulting from the Canadian Agriculture wholesale distribution exit.
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) decreased 8.4 percent to $20.6 million on a reported basis, or 9.8 percent on a constant currency basis(1) compared to the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA(1) decreased primarily due to the unfavorable product mix resulting from the Canadian Agriculture wholesale distribution exit and lower demand in energy markets, partially offset by more favorable product mix in industrial chemicals. Adjusted EBITDA margin(1) decreased by 80 basis points to 8.0 percent, primarily due to lower gross margins partially offset by lower WS&A.

LATAM:

  • LATAM external sales decreased by 1.4 percent, or increased 9.1 percent on a constant currency basis(1). The increase was primarily due to higher demand for products in industrial solutions partially offset by the inclusion of Brazil VAT recovery benefit in the prior year.
  • Gross profit (exclusive of depreciation) decreased by 24.1 percent, or 12.3 percent on a constant currency basis(1), and gross margin decreased 650 basis points to 21.8 percent due to the inclusion of Brazil VAT recovery benefit in the prior year partially offset by higher demand for products in industrial solutions.
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) decreased 1.9 percent to $10.6 million on a reported basis, or increased 18.5 percent on a constant currency basis(1). The increase in Adjusted EBITDA(1) on a constant currency basis(1) was primarily due to the higher demand for products in industrial solutions, partially offset by the inclusion of Brazil VAT recovery benefit in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA margin(1) was 8.5 percent, lower by 10 basis points.

Cost Reductions, Nexeo integration & Streamline 2022 Update

In response to the ongoing uncertain economic environment, the Company continues to actively manage its expense base and realize cost reductions in an effort to maintain Univar Solutions' financial strength while continuing to serve its suppliers and customers' needs. During 2020, these savings represented in aggregate over $20 million in cost reductions on a year over year basis, which are incremental to the net synergies realized from the Nexeo acquisition of $46 million. The Company continues to expect to achieve the targeted $120 million in annual Nexeo net synergies by early 2022.

The Company made significant progress in the fourth quarter of 2020 on its previously announced S22 program which is designed to improve operational agility, drive faster sales growth, particularly in North America, maximize net free cash flow conversion, reduce leverage to below 3.0x by the end of 2021 and improve EBITDA margins to 9% by the end of 2022. Recent actions to advance the S22 program and these goals include:

  • Named new president of North America Chemical Distribution
  • Exited our Canadian Agriculture wholesale distribution business
  • Sold our Canadian Agriculture services business
  • Acquired a business from Zhuhai Tech Chem Silicone Industry Corporation; and
  • Reached agreement on sale of our Distrupol business

The Company is expected to realize net proceeds from divestitures in excess of the targeted $200 million.

Outlook & Liquidity

Taking into account the announced divestitures, the Company expects Adjusted EBITDA(1) to be between $150 million and $160 million for the first quarter of 2021 as compared to $161.6 million for the first quarter of 2020. For full-year 2021 Adjusted EBITDA(1) is expected to be within a range of $630 million to $650 million, as compared to $635.8 million for full year 2020. Our forecast versus prior year reflects the effect of divestitures and a more normalized level of essential end market product margins. 

The Company is forecasting 2021 year-end liquidity to be within a range of $800 million to $900 million (consisting of cash and available lines of credit) and expects to reduce leverage to less than 3.0x, also by year end. The Company has no significant debt maturities until 2024 and is in full compliance with the covenants under its credit agreements.

Univar Solutions to Host Webcast on February 25, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. ET

The Company will host a webcast with investors to discuss 2020 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Financial Results at 9:00 a.m. ET on February 25, 2021, which can be accessed on the Investor Relations section of its website at http://investors.univarsolutions.com. After the live webcast, a replay of the webcast will be available on the same website.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

In this press release, the Company's financial results are provided both in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP) and using certain non-GAAP financial measures. In particular, the Company presents the non-GAAP financial measures of gross profit (exclusive of depreciation), adjusted gross profit (exclusive of depreciation), gross margin defined as gross profit (exclusive of depreciation) divided by net sales on a consolidated level and by external sales on a segment level), Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by net sales on a consolidated level and by external sales on a segment level, Adjusted net income, Adjusted earnings per diluted share, leverage ratio and results on a constant currency basis. The non-GAAP financial measures are included as a complement to results provided in accordance with GAAP because management believes these non-GAAP financial measures help investors' ability to analyze underlying trends in the Company's business, evaluate its performance relative to other companies in its industry and provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of the Company's core operating results. Additionally, the Company uses Adjusted EBITDA in setting performance incentive targets to align management compensation with operational performance.

The Company evaluates its results of operations on both an as reported and a constant currency basis. The constant currency presentation is a non-GAAP financial measure, which excludes the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. The Company believes providing information on a constant currency basis provides valuable supplemental information regarding its results of operations, consistent with how it evaluates its performance. The Company calculates constant currency percentages and other information by converting its financial results in local currency for a period using the average exchange rate for the prior period to which it is comparing.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, gross profit (exclusive of depreciation), adjusted gross profit (exclusive of depreciation), gross margin, Adjusted net income, Adjusted earnings per diluted share, leverage ratio and constant currency are not measures calculated in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for net income or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP. Additionally, other companies may calculate Adjusted EBITDA and other such metrics differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. For further information related to the Company's use of non-GAAP financial measures, and the reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP measures, see the schedules attached hereto.

(1)

Diluted and adjusted diluted earnings per share is calculated using net (loss) income or adjusted net income available to common shareholders divided by diluted and adjusted diluted weighted average shares outstanding during each period, respectively. Diluted earnings per share considers the impact of potential dilutive securities except in periods in which there is a loss because the inclusion of the potential common shares would have an anti-dilutive effect. Adjusted earnings per diluted share is based on the GAAP dilutive share count, except where adjustments to GAAP net loss result in an adjusted net income position.

(2)

The quarter-to-date period is calculated so the sum of quarterly amounts equals the year-to-date period. Immaterial differences may exist due to rounding.

(3)

As a result of changes in the number of shares outstanding during the year and rounding, the sum of the quarters' earnings per share may not equal the earnings per share for any year-to-date period.

(4)

Reconciling items represent items disclosed on Schedule E included in this document, excluding stock-based compensation and non-operating retirement benefits.

(5)

Tax on reconciling items is calculated as the difference between the tax provisions on US GAAP pre-tax earnings and Adjusted pre-tax earnings utilizing the appropriate tax rates and laws of each jurisdiction.

(1)

Represents charges or gains recorded for both the defined benefit pension and other postretirement benefit plans ("The Plans"). The Plans' mark to market loss is measured and recognized in its entirety within the statement of operations annually on December 31 and results from changes in actuarial assumptions and plan experience between the prior and current measurement dates, as well as the difference between the expected return on plan assets and the actual return on plan assets. For 2020, the pension mark to market loss of $52.8 million reflects a measurement loss of $139.7 million resulting from changes since the prior measurement date in actuarial assumptions and plan experience, offset by the difference between the expected and actual return on plan assets of $86.9 million attributable to the performance of plan assets during 2020.

(1)

Adjusted EBITDA excludes from forecasted net income the impact of gains and losses of foreign currency and on divestitures, refinancing costs, potential impairments, discrete tax items and other unusual or nonrecurring items that might materially impact GAAP net income. We have not provided a further reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net income as such reconciliation is not available without unreasonable efforts because the additional components in deriving Adjusted EBITDA are evaluated on an ongoing basis, can be highly variable and cannot reasonably be predicted. In addition, forecasted net income presented within this reconciliation is provided for informational purposes only and should not be viewed as guidance, as reported GAAP net income may differ materially from forecasted net income due to the impact of the items of the type identified above.
