NORTH ANDOVER, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Watts Water Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: WTS) today announced third quarter 2021 results.

Chief Executive Officer Robert J. Pagano Jr. commented, “As expected, challenges from market demand and supply chain disruptions continued into the third quarter, but our supply chain and operations teams continued to support our customers’ needs. I want to again thank them, and our entire team, for keeping a customer focus under continuing challenging circumstances. Their efforts resulted in another record quarter, with both consolidated sales and operating margin higher than we had anticipated. We also generated incremental free cash flow that, along with an already strong balance sheet, provides us flexibility to execute on our strategic priorities. We have increased our full year 2021 organic sales growth outlook to be 14% to 17% and are maintaining our previous expectations for adjusted operating margin expansion.”

Third Quarter Financial Highlights

Third quarter 2021 performance relative to third quarter 2020

  • Sales of $455 million increased 18% on a reported basis and 17% on an organic basis, driven by double digit growth in all regions.
  • Operating margin increased 170 basis points on a reported basis and 60 basis points on an adjusted basis, benefiting from price, volume, productivity and cost savings, which more than offset inflation, incremental investments, incentives and business normalization costs. GAAP operating margin was also positively impacted by lower restructuring charges year-over-year.

Regional Performance:

Americas

  • Sales of $309 million increased 18% on a reported basis and 17% on an organic basis, which included widespread growth in all major product lines.
  • Operating margin was flat on a GAAP basis and decreased 30 basis points on an adjusted basis, as benefits from price, volume, cost reduction actions and productivity initiatives were offset by inflation, incremental investments, incentives and business normalization costs. GAAP operating margin was positively impacted by lower restructuring charges year-over-year.

Europe

  • Sales of $124 million increased 16% on a reported basis, including a 14% organic increase, with growth in all platforms, and a 2% positive foreign exchange impact.
  • Operating margin increased 490 basis points on a GAAP basis and increased 420 basis points on an adjusted basis. Both measures were positively affected by price, volume and productivity initiatives that more than offset inflation, incremental investments and business normalization costs. GAAP operating margin was positively impacted by lower restructuring charges year-over-year.

APMEA

  • Sales of $22 million increased 39% on a reported basis, including 6% from positive foreign currency impact. Organically, sales increased 33% from growth in China, Australia and the Middle East.
  • Operating margin increased 1,970 basis points on a GAAP basis and 400 basis points on an adjusted basis, both benefiting from volume, productivity initiatives, restructuring savings as well as higher affiliate volume, which were partially offset by inflation, incentives and business normalization costs. GAAP operating margin was positively impacted by lower restructuring charges year-over-year.

Cash Flow and Capital Allocation

  • For the first nine months of 2021, operating cash flow was approximately $135 million, net capital expenditures were approximately $15 million and free cash flow was approximately $120 million. In the comparable period last year, operating cash flow was approximately $127 million, net capital expenditures were approximately $32 million and free cash flow was approximately $95 million. The free cash flow increase was primarily driven by higher net income and lower net capital expenditures. We expect continued improvement in free cash flow through the fourth quarter of 2021, due to normal seasonality.
  • We repurchased approximately 25,000 shares of Class A common stock at an investment of approximately $4 million during the third quarter. For the first nine months of 2021, we repurchased approximately 87,000 shares at an investment of approximately $12 million, primarily to offset dilution.

For a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP items and a statement regarding the usefulness of these measures to investors and management in evaluating our operating performance, please see the tables attached to this press release.

Key Performance Indicators and Non-GAAP Measures

In this press release, we refer to non-GAAP financial measures (including adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margins, adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per share, organic sales, free cash flow, cash conversion rate of free cash flow to net income and net debt to capitalization ratio) and provide a reconciliation of those non-GAAP financial measures to the corresponding financial measures contained in our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. We believe that these financial measures enhance the overall understanding of our historical financial performance and give insight into our future prospects. Adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margins, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share eliminate certain expenses incurred and benefits recognized in the periods presented that relate primarily to our global restructuring programs, footprint optimization costs, other long-lived asset impairment charges and the related income tax impacts on these items. Management then utilizes these adjusted financial measures to assess the run-rate of the Company’s operations against those of comparable periods. Organic sales growth is a non-GAAP measure of sales growth excluding the impacts of foreign exchange, acquisitions and divestitures from period-over-period comparisons. Management believes reporting organic sales growth provides useful information to investors, potential investors and others, and allows for a more complete understanding of underlying sales trends by providing sales growth on a consistent basis. Free cash flow, cash conversion rate of free cash flow to net income, and the net debt to capitalization ratio, are adjusted to exclude certain cash inflows and outlays, and include only certain balance sheet accounts from the comparable GAAP measures, are an indication of our performance in cash flow generation and also provide an indication of the Company's relative balance sheet leverage to other industrial manufacturing companies. These non-GAAP financial measures are among the primary indicators management uses as a basis for evaluating our cash flow generation and our capitalization structure. In addition, free cash flow is used as a criterion to measure and pay certain compensation-based incentives. For these reasons, management believes these non-GAAP financial measures can be useful to investors, potential investors and others. The Company’s non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
