Management Commentary

“We are pleased with our strong start to 2022 led by broad-based growth across our entire portfolio,” said IFF CEO Frank Clyburn. “Our pricing actions, in combination with our diligent focus on cost discipline, have helped offset the inflationary pressures felt across the global economy. Given our performance to date and reflecting additional inflation throughout the year, we have increased our sales expectation to include incremental pricing actions to fully recover our cost exposure as we remain committed to delivering our full year profit objective. At the same time, we are also sharpening our execution rigor, enhancing our focus on productivity, and investing to strengthen our business as we position the company to deliver sustainable, profitable growth for our shareholders.”

First Quarter 2022 Consolidated Financial Results

  • Reported net sales for the first quarter were $3.23 billion, an increase of 31% compared to the prior year period, driven primarily by the incremental sales related to the merger with Nutrition & Biosciences ("N&B"). On a comparable basis [2] , currency neutral sales increased 13%, led by double-digit growth in Nourish, Health & Biosciences and Pharma Solutions. In the first quarter, pricing increased approximately 8% and volume grew approximately 5%.

  • Income before taxes on a reported basis for the first quarter was $285 million. Adjusted operating EBITDA for the first quarter was $702 million, an increase of 23% from $569 million in the prior year period principally driven by the incremental profit related to the merger with N&B. On a comparable basis [2] , currency neutral adjusted operating EBITDA increased 9%, driven by pricing actions, volume growth and productivity gains.

  • Reported earnings per share (EPS) for the first quarter was $0.96. Adjusted EPS excluding amortization was $1.69 per diluted share.

Financial Guidance

The Company expects full year 2022 sales to be approximately $12.6 billion to $13.0 billion (versus previous guidance of $12.3 billion to $12.7 billion), with an expected full year 2022 adjusted operating EBITDA of approximately $2.5 billion to $2.6 billion (no change). The Company's updated full year guidance reflects the expected Microbial Control divestiture, which is anticipated to be complete on July 1, 2022 (versus June 1, 2022 previously), as well as the addition of the Health Wright Products acquisition, which closed on April 1, 2022.

The Company expects to deliver comparable currency neutral sales growth of approximately 9% to 12% (versus 6 to 9% previously) for the full year 2022. The Company continues to expect comparable currency neutral adjusted operating EBITDA growth for 2022 to be approximately 4% to 8% (no change).

Based on current market foreign exchange rates, the Company expects that foreign exchange will negatively impact sales growth in 2022 by approximately 4 percentage points (versus 2 previously) and adjusted operating EBITDA growth by approximately 5 percentage points (versus 4 previously).

The foregoing list of important factors does not include all such factors, nor necessarily present them in order of importance. In addition, you should consult other disclosures made by the Company (such as in our other filings with the SEC or in company press releases) for other factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from those projected by the Company. Please refer to Part I. Item 1A., Risk Factors, of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on February 28, 2022 for additional information regarding factors that could affect our results of operations, financial condition and liquidity.

We intend our forward-looking statements to speak only as of the time of such statements and do not undertake or plan to update or revise them as more information becomes available or to reflect changes in expectations, assumptions or results. We can give no assurance that such expectations or forward-looking statements will prove to be correct. An occurrence of, or any material adverse change in, one or more of the risk factors or risks and uncertainties referred to in this press release or included in our other periodic reports filed with the SEC could materially and adversely impact our operations and our future financial results. Any public statements or disclosures made by us following this press release that modify or impact any of the forward-looking statements contained in or accompanying this press release will be deemed to modify or supersede such outlook or other forward-looking statements in or accompanying this press release.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We provide in this press release non-GAAP financial measures, including: (i) comparable currency neutral sales; (ii) adjusted operating EBITDA and comparable currency neutral adjusted operating EBITDA; (iii) adjusted EBITDA margin; (iv) adjusted EPS ex amortization; (v) free cash flow; and (vi) net debt to credit adjusted EBITDA.

Our non-GAAP financial measures are defined below.

Currency Neutral metrics eliminate the effects that result from translating non-U.S. currencies to U.S. dollars. We calculate currency neutral numbers by translating current year invoiced sale amounts at the exchange rates used for the corresponding prior year period. We use currency neutral results in our analysis of subsidiary or segment performance. We also use currency neutral numbers when analyzing our performance against our competitors.

Adjusted operating EBITDA and adjusted operating EBITDA margin exclude depreciation and amortization expense, interest expense, other income (expense), net, restructuring and other charges and certain non-recurring items such as gains (losses) on sale of assets, shareholder activism related costs, business divestiture costs, employee separation costs, Frutarom acquisition related costs, N&B inventory step-up costs, N&B transaction related costs, integration related costs and the impact of the merger with N&B.

Adjusted EPS ex Amortization excludes the impact of non-operational items including restructuring and other charges, gains (losses) on sale of assets, shareholder activism related costs, business divestiture costs, employee separation costs, Frutarom acquisition related costs, N&B inventory step-up costs, N&B transaction related costs, integration related costs, redemption value adjustment to EPS, the impact of the merger with N&B and non-cash items including the amortization of acquisition related intangible assets.

Free Cash Flow is operating cash flow (i.e. cash flow from operations) less capital expenditures.

Net debt to credit adjusted EBITDA is the leverage ratio used in our credit agreement and defined as Net debt (which is long-term debt less cash and cash equivalents) divided by the trailing 12-month credit adjusted EBITDA. Credit adjusted EBITDA is defined as income (loss) before income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, interest expense, specified items and non-cash items.

Comparable results for the first quarter is defined as 3 months (January, February and March) of legacy IFF and N&B results in the 2021 period and for the full company in the current 2022 period, and exclude the impact of divestitures in the prior year period and acquisitions in the current year period.

These non-GAAP measures are intended to provide additional information regarding our underlying operating results and comparable year-over-year performance. Such information is supplemental to information presented in accordance with GAAP and is not intended to represent a presentation in accordance with GAAP. In discussing our historical and expected future results and financial condition, we believe it is meaningful for investors to be made aware of and to be assisted in a better understanding of, on a period-to-period comparable basis, financial amounts both including and excluding these identified items, as well as the impact of exchange rate fluctuations. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of the Company’s results under GAAP and may not be comparable to other companies’ calculation of such metrics.

The Company cannot reconcile its expected Adjusted Operating EBITDA and expected annual effective tax rate under "Financial Guidance" without unreasonable effort because certain items that impact net income and other reconciling metrics are out of the Company's control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted at this time. These items include but are not limited to gains (losses) on sale of assets, shareholder activism related costs, business divestiture costs, employee separation costs, N&B inventory step-up costs, N&B transaction related costs, integration related costs and the impact of the merger with N&B.
