LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Pentair plc (NYSE: PNR) today announced first quarter 2022 sales of $1.0 billion. Sales were up 15 percent compared to sales for the same period last year. Excluding currency translation, acquisitions and divestitures, core sales grew 12 percent in the first quarter. First quarter 2022 earnings per diluted share from continuing operations (“EPS”) were $0.71 compared to $0.78 in the first quarter of 2021. On an adjusted basis, the company reported EPS of $0.85 compared to $0.81 in the first quarter of 2021. Segment income, adjusted net income, free cash flow and adjusted EPS are described in the attached schedules.

John L. Stauch, Pentair’s President and Chief Executive Officer commented: “I remain grateful for the agility and contributions of Pentair employees as they work through challenges caused by the global supply chain and higher inflation to solve our customers’ needs. Our price actions are accelerating as we previously communicated and we were able to offset inflation for the first time in almost a year. Our residential businesses continued to see increasing demand and we saw order and revenue growth in both our commercial and industrial businesses.”

“We announced in March our intent to acquire Manitowoc Ice and we look forward to closing the transaction and expanding our commercial water solutions offerings. We believe that the addition of Manitowoc Ice to the portfolio will allow us the opportunity to bring to our customers a total water management solution that optimizes complementary portfolios through a large installed customer base in foodservice. We expect it will provide an additional growth engine for Pentair that augments our current innovative offerings, ultimately positioning us well for long-term value creation for our stakeholders.”

First quarter 2022 operating income was $146 million, down 7 percent compared to operating income for the first quarter of 2021, and return on sales (“ROS”) was 14.6 percent, a decrease of 350 basis points when compared to the first quarter of 2021. On an adjusted basis, the company reported segment income of $172 million for the first quarter of 2022, up 5 percent compared to segment income for the first quarter of 2021, and ROS was 17.2 percent, a decrease of 180 basis points when compared to the first quarter of 2021.

Consumer Solutions sales were up 23 percent compared to sales for the same period last year. Excluding currency translation, acquisitions and divestitures, core sales grew 17 percent in the first quarter. Segment income of $139 million was up 6 percent compared to the first quarter of 2021, and ROS was 21.6 percent, a decrease of 350 basis points when compared to the first quarter of 2021. First quarter ROS was negatively impacted by the lower margin contribution from recent acquisitions, increased inflation, and ongoing supply chain inefficiencies.

Industrial & Flow Technologies sales were up 4 percent compared to sales for the same period last year. Excluding currency translation, acquisitions and divestitures, core sales grew 6 percent in the first quarter. Segment income of $52 million was up 4 percent compared to the first quarter of 2021, and ROS was 14.6 percent, an increase of 10 basis points when compared to the first quarter of 2021.

Net cash used for operating activities of continuing operations was $132 million compared to $19 million in the first quarter of 2021 and free cash flow used for continuing operations for the quarter was $149 million compared to $29 million in the first quarter of 2021.

Pentair paid a regular cash dividend of $0.21 per share in the first quarter of 2022. Pentair previously announced on February 21, 2022 that it will pay a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.21 per share on May 6, 2022 to shareholders of record at the close of business on April 22, 2022. This year marks the 46th consecutive year that Pentair has increased its dividend.

OUTLOOK

The company updates its estimated 2022 GAAP EPS from continuing operations to approximately $3.40 to $3.50 and on an adjusted EPS basis to approximately $3.70 to $3.80. The company updates full year 2022 sales guidance to be up approximately 9 to 11 percent on a reported basis. The company’s outlook for 2022 does not include Manitowoc Ice. The company expects full year free cash flow to approximate 100 percent of net income.

In addition, the company introduces second quarter 2022 GAAP EPS from continuing operations guidance of approximately $0.91 to $0.94 and on an adjusted EPS basis of approximately $0.98 to $1.01. The company expects second quarter sales to be up approximately 11 to 13 percent on a reported basis compared to the second quarter of 2021.
