Eaton Reports Record Second Quarter 2021 Results, Raises 2021 Outlook

Power management company Eaton Corporation plc (NYSE:ETN) today announced that earnings per share were $1.26 for the second quarter of 2021. Excluding charges of $0.25 per share related to intangible amortization, $0.18 per share related to acquisitions and divestitures, and $0.03 per share related to a multi-year restructuring program, adjusted earnings per share were a second quarter record of $1.72, up 98% over the second quarter of 2020 and up 19% over the first quarter of 2021.

Sales in the second quarter of 2021 were $5.2 billion, up 35% from the second quarter of 2020. The sales increase consisted of 27% growth in organic sales, 5% growth from acquisitions, and 3% from positive currency translation.

Craig Arnold, Eaton chairman and chief executive officer, said, “Building on the momentum from the first quarter, we achieved strong performance in the second quarter. We delivered record second quarter adjusted earnings per share and segment margins, and organic sales were slightly above the midpoint of our guidance range despite supply chain constraints impacting many of our businesses. We are pleased with how well our businesses are executing in this environment.”

Second quarter segment margins were 18.6% and up 390 basis points over the second quarter of 2020. This result was above the high end of our guidance range, and a second quarter record. These strong segment margins were driven by effectively managing supply chain constraints, increased productivity and continued benefits from the multi-year restructuring program announced in the second quarter of 2020.

Operating cash flow in the second quarter of 2021 was stronger than expected at $637 million and free cash flow was $484 million.

During the quarter, we continued to improve our portfolio of businesses. The company closed the acquisition of Cobham Mission Systems, and the acquisition of a 50% stake in Jiangsu YiNeng Electric’s busway business in China, adding new products and growth opportunities for the Aerospace and Electrical Global segments. The Hydraulics sale to Danfoss closed August 2.

“Driven by strong second quarter performance and anticipated higher organic sales for the remainder of the year, we now expect 2021 adjusted earnings per share to be between $6.58 and $6.88, up 37% at the midpoint over 2020,” said Arnold. “Additionally, we expect 2021 full year adjusted operating cash flow to be between $2.6 billion and $2.8 billion, up $200 million at the midpoint over our previous guidance. Finally, for the third quarter of 2021, we anticipate adjusted earnings per share to be between $1.72 and $1.82.”

EATON CORPORATION plc

NOTES TO THE SECOND QUARTER 2021 EARNINGS RELEASE

Amounts are in millions of dollars unless indicated otherwise (per share data assume dilution).

Note 1. NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

This earnings release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures. These financial measures include adjusted earnings, adjusted earnings per ordinary share, adjusted operating cash flow, and free cash flow, each of which differs from the most directly comparable measure calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). A reconciliation of each of these financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure is included in this earnings release. During the first quarter of 2021, the Company revised its definition of adjusted earnings to exclude intangible asset amortization expense and prior periods have been retrospectively adjusted to apply this change. Management believes that these financial measures are useful to investors because they exclude certain transactions, allowing investors to more easily compare Eaton Corporation plc’s (Eaton or the Company) financial performance period to period. Management uses this information in monitoring and evaluating the on-going performance of Eaton and each business segment.

The Company’s third quarter and full year adjusted earnings results for 2020, first quarter adjusted earnings results for 2021, and guidance for 2021, excluding the impact of the gain from the sale of the Hydraulics business, follows:
