ATLANTA, July 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chart Industries, Inc. (NYSE: GTLS) today reported results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021. Further details can be found in the supplemental presentation included with this release.   All figures in this release and supplemental presentation represent our continuing operations in our external reportable segments of Cryogenic Tank Solutions (“CTS”), Heat Transfer Systems (“HTS”), Specialty Products (“Specialty”) and Repair, Service & Leasing (“RSL”). Highlights include:

  • Third consecutive quarter of record orders ($447.9 million), contributing to record backlog of $1,083.9 million and including orders with 133 new customers and 16 first-of-a-kind (“FOAK”) applications
  • Sales of $322.0 million were an increase of 11.6% over the first quarter 2021 and an increase of 11.2% compared to the second quarter of 2020; excluding Venture Global Calcasieu Pass Big LNG, sales increased 15.6% compared to the first quarter 2021 and 19.2% compared to the second quarter of 2020
  • Reported diluted earnings per share (“EPS”) of $0.16 and adjusted non-diluted EPS of $0.80 (excluding mark-to-market for strategic equity investments)
  • Repair, Service & Leasing and Specialty Products comprised 50.0% of our total net sales, the highest quarter in our history (and compared to 41.1% in the first quarter of 2021 and 34.1% for the full year 2020)
  • Completed acquisition of L.A. Turbine (specialty turboexpanders on July 1, 2021) and investments in Earthly Labs (small-scale carbon capture) and Cryomotive (compressed cold hydrogen)
  • Increase to full year 2021 guidance of revenue of $1.38 billion to $1.43 billion (increase from prior outlook of $1.36 billion to $1.41 billion) and associated non-diluted adjusted EPS of $3.80 to $4.25 (increase from the prior 2021 outlook of $3.65 to $4.15)
  • Given record backlog with visibility to 2022, releasing 2022 revenue outlook of $1.60 billion to $1.70 billion
  • Sharing 2030 Total Addressable Market (“TAM”) for Specialty Products of $36.5 billion

Three consecutive quarters of record orders set the stage for significant growth ahead both in the second half of 2021 and full year 2022.
Second quarter 2021 orders of $447.9 million was the highest in our history, and the third quarter in a row that we have set a new historical order record. Orders increased sequentially 7.4% when compared to the first quarter of 2021 (our prior historical record high) and 83.2% compared to the second quarter of 2020. Demand for Chart products and technologies continues to be broad based and is flowing through to sales and earnings, as evidenced by records in the following categories:

Record orders resulted in our third consecutive record backlog quarter ($1,083.9 million), and this is a record with or without Big LNG. Second quarter 2021 ending backlog does not include any additional or new Big LNG as our final Venture Global Calcasieu Pass shipments were completed in June 2021 on-time and in budget. Backlog includes the following significant and meaningful orders and activities in the second quarter 2021 (just to name a few, as the list goes on!):

  • Hydrogen ($81.9 million) including one helium liquefaction plant for a company in Russia as well as 22 liquid hydrogen trailers.  
  • Booked 16 first-of-a-kind orders, including the first LNG road tankers to be operated in South Africa and a SDOX water treatment system for a brewery for odor control.
  • 133 new customers placed orders, 63% of whom are outside of North America.
  • 60 orders booked that individually were greater than $1 million.
  • Strong industrial gas orders which is an indicator of our customers’ confidence in 2022.
  • Booked more trailer orders in the first half of 2021 than in the full year of 2020.
  • Record order and sales activity in EMEA and India.
  • China continued its streak of records, including record orders as well as shipping the largest bulk tank in our Chart China history.
  • Record water treatment orders of $7.3 million, with 70% of these orders having both Chart and BlueInGreen content.
  • Record HLNG vehicle tank orders including the largest LNG bus order in our history.
  • And while we have not seen significant order pickup in the Heat Transfer segment, we received full notice to proceed on the New Fortress Energy FastLNG project. Additionally, we have seen a considerable change from midstream and upstream inquiry levels. Specifically, inquiry levels for midstream and upstream equipment increased 30% from April 2021 to June 2021. More meaningful is that our conversion rate from inquiry to firm fixed order has changed to a 70% conversion rate in June and July 2021 compared to ~30% six months ago.

“We expect this broad-based demand for our molecule agnostic products and solutions to continue with both public and private sector funding and decision making moving toward practical and cleaner energy activities,” stated Jill Evanko, Chart’s CEO and President. “The progress has continued this past week, with the Department of Energy’s “Long Duration Storage Shot”, the European Commissions’ “Fit for 55” package and associated Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism all contributing significant momentum toward the nexus of clean energy, clean water, clean food and clean industrials that we expect to explode (pun intended) this decade.”

As the result of the exponentially growing specialty markets, we are providing a 2030 total addressable market estimate for our Specialty Products of $36.5 billion, based on market information, our existing product and technology portfolio, and bottoms up estimates from our commercial team and our customers’ outlooks.

Continuing to leverage our strategic inorganic and organic investments for growth and productivity.
In the second quarter 2021, we continued to add to our full solution offering through inorganic investments and acquisitions, completing minority investments in the following companies, all of which add further growth potential to our specialty markets:

  • Cryomotive, a leading green-tech mobility startup in Germany developing a disruptive clean hydrogen storage and refueling technology platform focused on compressed cold hydrogen and cryogenic high-pressure storage. Cryomotive’s proprietary CcH2 CRYOGAS technology aims to decarbonize long-haul commercial vehicles while keeping the range and fueling times similar to diesel powered vehicles and reaching parity in costs of ownership before 2030.
  • Earthly Labs is the leading provider of small-scale carbon capture systems offering an affordable, small footprint technology platform called “CiCi ®” to capture, recycle, reuse, track and sell CO2. Earthly Labs' solution is unique in the carbon capture space, offering quick installation, fast payback, and a cloud-based software solution enabling real-time CO2 capture insights. Earthly Labs uses Chart cryogenic CO2 storage tanks, vaporizers and regulators as a standard part of its offering to customers which will be further expanded in conjunction with the commercial MOU signed by the parties in connection with Chart’s investment.

In addition to these investments, on July 1, 2021, we closed on the $80 million acquisition of L.A. Turbine, a global leader in turboexpander design, engineering, manufacturing, assembly and testing process for new and aftermarket equipment, with significant in-house engineering expertise. LAT’s capabilities are a natural fit and deliver a competitive point of differentiation for Chart. There is a very unique expander required for hydrogen and helium liquefaction which is difficult to obtain in the market due to a limited number of companies like LAT that are capable of designing and producing it. Within the first 24 hours of owning L.A. Turbine, we had already received numerous customer reach outs to connect on providing these expanders, and in the first weeks have booked approximately $2 million in new orders.

Also, we officially opened our repair, service & leasing site in strategically located Richburg, SC, a location that our industrial gas customers have been requesting. We have already received numerous customer tanks onsite, another step to our over target of 20% of Chart revenue being in the repair, service & leasing segment within the next two years. RSL was 17% of our total revenue in the second quarter of 2021 driven in part by an increase in leasing revenue (263% increase versus Q1 2021) and in part by the fact that we now have 80 customers with repair & service agreements globally, including 40 outside of North America.

Our organic R&D activities are already paying off, as we sold our first liquid hydrogen ISO container recently (July 2021 order) to a customer in Turkey. Additionally, we now have our Liquid Hydrogen Onboard Vehicle Tank (“HLH2 onboard tank”) commercially available and we are excited to partner with Hyzon Motors with whom we will offer an ultra-heavy-duty truck with a range of 1,000 miles, powered by liquid hydrogen. The start to our third quarter 2021 hydrogen order activity has continued to be strong, and we are excited to be at the point of completion of another one of our differentiators – regional certifications, including having the Chinese group code for liquid hydrogen storage tanks (which is by invitation only and takes approximately 18 months to receive from the governing authorities).

Strong orders are resulting in increasing sales, and actions have been taken to address material cost and supply headwinds.
Sales of $322.0 million were an increase of 11.6% over the first quarter 2021 and 11.2% when compared to the second quarter of 2020. The second quarter of 2021 had $5.4 million of Venture Global (“VG”) Calcasieu Pass revenue whereas the first quarter of 2021 had $14.7 million and second quarter of 2020 had $23.8 million of associated VG revenue. We expect total sales of each subsequent quarter in the second half of 2021 to be sequentially higher than the prior quarter.

Reported gross margin as a percent of sales of 25.8% reflected one-time restructuring and start-up costs. These one-time costs were primarily related to start-up activities in our manufacturing locations where we are adding capacity (Teddy Trailer & Tanks in Alabama, USA and air coolers in Beasley, Texas, USA), opening greenfield facilities (Richburg, South Carolina, USA) or creating flexible manufacturing (Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA). When normalized for those, gross margin as a percent of sales was 29.0%, and we expect that sequentially between now and year-end, gross margin as a percent of sales will increase. RSL had a sequential negative swing in gross margin as a percent of sales, driven by less quick turn field service projects and specific product mix. Specialty, CTS and HTS gross margin as a percent of sales were in line with expectations and CTS will receive second half benefit from price increases put into effect on July 1, 2021.

Frequently discussed topics are the increase in material and labor costs across all industries. We were not immune to the material cost increases. We have taken many steps to ensure that going forward, we have enough inventory on hand to meet our customers’ lead-times and delivery schedules while protecting margins. The actions taken include the following:

  • Effective July 1, 2021, we implemented a broad price increase for most of our products, ranging between 8% and 12%. Therefore, we expect our margins will be better in the second half of 2021 than the second quarter of 2021.
  • In our global long-term agreements as well as with our customers in EMEA and India, this material cost escalation is passed through to our customers in the form of a material surcharge. This standard surcharge formula in our LTAs are typically three months delayed from the impact of the material cost change itself.
  • During the second quarter of 2021, we made the conscious decision to add inventory for the remainder of the 2021 year to ensure we could meet delivery schedules given the material shortages and supply chain issues globally. We have also contracted our key materials through the end of 2021, mitigating potential concerns of lack of supply availability, especially as mills globally are seeing unprecedented demand and head into the summer season which is typically their maintenance time of year. This strategic decision resulted in negative net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations of $37 million and a corresponding negative free cash flow (“FCF”) of $31 million for the quarter (adjusted for a tax payment associated with the divestiture of our cryobiological business), driven by our $29 million investment in inventory ($65 million investment in inventory year-to-date 2021) to meet demand amidst challenging market supply conditions. We expect inventory levels to decline in the second half of 2021 in connection with anticipated high product demand, as well as generating FCF from the receipt of key milestone payments related to backlog projects of the Russian helium liquefier, two 15 ton per day hydrogen liquefaction projects and New Fortress Energy’s FastLNG. As of June 30, 2021, we had $198 million of cash on hand and a net leverage ratio of 2.41 which included second quarter 2021 tax payments of $41.9 million.
  • Over 95% of our supply base has more than one (in many cases, multiple) vendor sources, which has allowed us to continue to be on-time with our deliveries.

Even considering the material cost headwinds we faced, our adjusted non-diluted earnings per share was $0.80 for the second quarter 2021 (excluding the negative impact of our mark-to-market on our minority investments and adjusted for the one-time start-up costs described above and transaction related costs for our inorganic deal activity (L.A. Turbine, Cryomotive and Earthly Labs)). On a year-to-date basis, through the first half of 2021, our adjusted non-diluted EPS increased 88% when compared to the first half of 2020, and adjusted diluted EPS increased 76% compared to that same period.

Don’t forget about LNG.
LNG infrastructure activity is very active. When we think of our LNG business, we think of it in three categories; (1) Big LNG export projects, (2) small-scale and utility-scale LNG and (3) LNG infrastructure. First, while Big LNG is not included in our 2021 guidance or 2022 outlook, considerable second quarter 2021 activity on FERC approved mid-scale projects including Venture Global Plaquemines, Cheniere CCL Stage Three and Tellurian’s Driftwood Phase 1 provide additional confidence to these moving forward to Final Investment Decision (“FID”) in the first half of 2022. Second, numerous additional small-scale LNG project have entered our commercial pipeline in the second quarter 2021, and we expect that 2022 to 2025 will be record setting for multiple of these projects to move ahead globally, driven in part by more market and government acceptance of LNG. New Fortress Energy’s FastLNG project progressed to full notice to proceed within the second quarter of 2021. Finally, widespread & strong demand for LNG vehicle tanks, fueling stations and trailers has continued throughout the first half of 2021. There were record orders in the second quarter of 2021 for HLNG vehicle tanks including the largest LNG bus order in our history.

Increasing full year 2021 guidance, including reiterating that each quarter in 2021 is expected to be better than the prior quarter.
Full year 2021 sales are expected to be approximately $1.380 billion to $1.430 billion, inclusive of $21 million of Venture Global’s Calcasieu Pass revenue (none remaining to ship) as well as expected 2021 revenue from the 2021 acquisitions of Cryo Technologies and L.A. Turbine and actual order activity resulting from our inorganic minority investments. This is an increase over the prior full year 2021 sales guidance of $1.36 billion to $1.41 billion, resulting from the strong first half 2021 order book, including specific hydrogen and helium liquefaction projects. There is no additional Big LNG revenue included in our outlook although we strongly believe that there is the opportunity for up to four Big LNG projects with our equipment and/or IPSMR® to move to Final Investment Decision (“FID”) in the first half of 2022. As we have indicated previously, there are many moving pieces that contribute to a range, and we have provided two different analyses on our revenue range in the supplemental presentation on slides 22 and 23 (the prior walk is included in the appendix of the presentation on slide 29). This year, we expect the second half of 2021 to be considerably higher than the first half of 2021 based on the lead-time of our backlog, in particular associated 2021 revenue related to projects such as the two 15 ton per day hydrogen liquefaction plants, the Russian helium liquefiers and New Fortress Energy’s FastLNG project. More specifically, we expect each quarter to sequentially increase over the prior quarter this year, as you have seen in the first half. Additionally, we have conservatively built our second half 2021 forecast for HTS, although we believe there will be continued heightened replacement activity with plants running at higher capacity factors with changing capture and rejection modes which could result in drop-in projects that are at or above $10 million in size and scope.

We anticipate full year non-diluted adjusted earnings per share to be approximately $3.80 to $4.25 on 35.5 million weighted average shares outstanding, up from our previous estimate of $3.65 to $4.15 per share. Our assumed effective tax rate is 18% for the full year 2021. Our expected capital expenditure outlook is unchanged from our prior guidance is unchanged and expected to be in the $40 million to $50 million range, driven by organic investments in our high growth areas inclusive of expanding product capabilities in our Teddy Trailer and Tank facility, completion of our repair and service facility in South Carolina, USA, new product development for hydrogen and continued targeted lease fleet expansion.

2022 is Set to Be a Record Year. Our First Look.
Given our record backlog as of June 30, 2021, as well as visibility to anticipated broad-based demand, we are sharing our first look for revenue for 2022. Our 2022 sales outlook is expected to be in the range of $1.60 billion to $1.70 billion, and does not include any additional or new Big LNG projects, although we bullishly expect between one and four of these Big LNG projects that already have FERC approval to move to FID in the first half of 2022. Details on our 2022 sales outlook can be found in the supplemental presentation on slide 25.

(1)   Restructuring, transaction-related and other costs were as follows:

  • $6.2 in relocation and facility start-up costs attributable to relocation of our air cooled heat exchangers product lines from our Tulsa, Oklahoma facility to our Beasley, Texas facility and product line start up costs in our existing Tulsa, Oklahoma facility and $0.8 in integration and start up costs for our Alabama Trailers facility for the three months ended June 30, 2021.
  • $0.8 in transaction-related costs related to the acquisitions of Cryogenic Gas Technologies, Inc., Sustainable Energy Solutions, Inc., BlueInGreen, LLC and Alabama Trailers and the July 1, 2021 acquisition of L.A. Turbine for the three months ended June 30, 2021.
  • $1.3 in income taxes and interest expense related to previous divestitures for the three months ended June 30, 2021.
  • $1.2 in acquisition-related contingent consideration charges to net income for the three months ended June 30, 2021.
  • $0.5 in other various non-restructuring costs for the three months ended June 30, 2021.
  • $0.3 for the three months ended June 30, 2021 in restructuring costs, primarily related to headcount reductions. Restructuring costs incurred in the three months ended June 30, 2020 of $5.6 were primarily related to headcount reductions, in order to manage through a downturn in our Heat Transfer Systems segment and smaller reductions in our other segments and corporate in order to reduce redundant work.
  • For the three months ended June 30, 2019, we recorded $4.4 of restructuring costs primarily related to the closure of a facility in our Cryo Tank Solutions segment, as well as departmental restructuring including headcount reductions. We also incurred $2.4 in transaction-related and other one-time costs during the three months ended June 30, 2019.

(2)   Includes a $2.6 gain on sale of a facility in China in our Cryo Tank Solutions segment for the three months ended June 30, 2020.

(3)   Other one-time costs include commercial and legal settlements, and Covid-19 related costs, which include freight, sourcing and safety costs directly related to manufacture and fulfillment of critical care products.

(4)   Includes mark-to-market fair value adjustments of our investments in equity securities related to Stabilis and McPhy for the three months ended June 30, 2021 and mark-to-market fair value adjustments of our investment in equity securities related to Stabilis for the three months ended June 30, 2020.

(5)   Includes an additional 4.89 shares related to the convertible notes due 2024 and associated warrants in our diluted earnings per share calculation for the three months ended June 30, 2021. The associated hedge, which helps offset this dilution, cannot be taken into account under U.S. GAAP. If the hedge could have been considered, it would have reduced the additional shares by 2.64 for the three months ended June 30, 2021.

(6)   Includes an additional 1.81 shares related to the convertible notes due 2024 and associated warrants in our diluted earnings per share calculation for the three months ended June 30, 2019. The associated hedge, which helps offset this dilution, cannot be taken into account under U.S. GAAP. If the hedge could have been considered, it would have reduced the additional shares by 1.25 for the three months ended June 30, 2019.

Adjusted earnings per diluted and non-diluted share are not measures of financial performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to earnings per share in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Management believes that adjusted earnings per share facilitates useful period-to-period comparisons of our financial results and this information is used by us in evaluating internal performance. Our calculation of these non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to the calculations of similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
