Continued growth and underlying Mining EBITA margin of 10.5%
FLSmidth & Co. Group Interim Report for Q2 2022
COMPANY ANNOUNCEMENT NO. 14-2022
Highlights in Q2 2022
- Good order intake and revenue growth driven by both Mining and Cement
- Underlying Mining EBITA margin of 10.5%* with reported Mining EBITA margin of 7.8%
- Cement continued its positive trajectory on improving profitability
- Negative cash flow, as expected, due to increase in net working capital
- Completion of TK Mining acquisition closing on 31 August 2022
- Russian wind-down well progressed
- Financial guidance raised for Mining revenue, Group revenue and Cement EBITA margin
Mining order intake increased 26% organically in Q2 2022, as a result of improved service activity compared to Q2 2021. The quarter included one large product order, valued at around DKK 270m. Cement order intake increased 8% organically, as a result of improved underlying performance and improved market conditions. The quarter included one large product order, valued at more than DKK 400m. Consolidated Group order intake increased 20% organically with currency tailwinds supporting order intake in the quarter by 8%.
Group CEO, Mikko Keto, commented: “Following a solid start to the year, the second quarter of 2022 saw continued growth in order intake and financial performance. Revenue and EBITA increased by 23% and 56%, respectively, driven by a solid Mining performance with an underlying EBITA margin of 10.5% when adjusting for costs related to the acquisition of thyssenkrupp’s Mining business and the winding down of our Russian activities. In addition, Cement continued its positive trajectory on improving profitability. The increased revenue and EBITA was despite inflationary pressure, supply chain challenges and costs related to our ongoing wind-down of Russian activities.”
Financial performance Q2 2022
Mining revenue increased organically by 19%, driven by both service and capital. The quarter includes revenue of DKK 257m from contracts with non-sanctioned Russian and Belarusian customers. Mining EBITA increased by 19%. The EBITA margin of 7.8% includes costs related to the acquisition of thyssenkrupp’s Mining business of DKK 45m and costs of DKK 50m to the wind-down of our Russian activities. Adjusted for these costs, the Mining EBITA margin was 10.5%.
Cement revenue increased 12% organically, driven mainly by the increase in service revenue. Cement EBITA continued the positive trend and increased to DKK 31m in Q2 2022 compared to DKK -34m in Q2 2021. Cement EBITA margin was positive at 2.1%, compared to -2.7% in Q2 2021, driven by higher revenue in the quarter and improvements from the successfully executed reshaping activities in 2021.
Consolidated organic revenue increased 17% driven primarily by Mining. Gross profit increased by 22%, with the corresponding gross margin decreasing slightly from 25.0% to 24.7%. EBITA increased by 56% and the corresponding EBITA margin increased to 6.1% from 4.8% in Q2 2021. Adjusted for the costs related to the wind-down of our Russian activities and to the acquisition of thyssenkrupp’s Mining business, the EBITA margin was 8.0% in Q2 2022.
The net working capital ratio increased from 7.3% in Q1 2022 to 9.2% in Q2 2022. The primary driver of the increase in the quarter was trade receivables that increased as a result of increased activity. Inventories increased in line with expectations to mitigate the supply chain challenges. Cash flow from operating activities (CFFO) declined in line with expectations in Q2 2022, as a result of the net working capital outflow.
A significant milestone achieved - TK Mining acquisition closing on 31 August 2022
As announced on 11 August 2022 (refer Company Announcement No. 13-2022), all conditions and requirements for the acquisition of thyssenkrupp’s Mining business have been met. All regulatory clearances have been obtained without imposition of any competition related remedies. Accordingly, the transaction will close on 31 August 2022. We are very excited to soon welcome our ~2,000 new colleagues and TK Mining’s customers to FLSmidth. Our combined company will offer customers a stronger, complementary value proposition, while creating significant aftermarket opportunities, driving value creation through compelling synergies and further strengthening our sustainability and digitalisation agenda.
New members in Group Executive Management
To drive faster decision-making, improved profitability and an ambitious sustainability agenda, and to prepare for the integration of thyssenkrupp’s Mining business, we have adjusted our organisation. Our three Mining Business Lines (Service, Products and Systems) have been elevated to Group Executive Management and Cement is operating on a clearer standalone basis. To this end, Joshua Meyer has been appointed President, Mining Service, Chris Reinbold has been appointed President, Mining Products and Axel Baumeister, President Mining Systems. In addition to his role as Chief Operating Officer, Asger Lauritsen has been appointed President for Cement.
Financial guidance 2022 is updated
Guidance for Mining revenue, consolidated Group revenue and Cement EBITA margin is raised. The Mining EBITA margin is, as previously communicated, expected to remain in the lower end of the guidance range due to the impact from our Russian business.
|Guidance 2022||Revenue (DKKbn)||EBITA margin|
|Mining||13.0-14.0 (12.0-13.0)||8.5-9.5% (unchanged)|
|Cement||5.5-6.0 (unchanged)||2-3% (1-2%)|
|Group||18.5-20.0 (17.5-19.0)||6-7% (unchanged)|
The financial guidance for 2022 is for the FLSmidth Group standalone and excludes the impact from the combination with thyssenkrupp’s Mining business. Guidance includes around DKK 110m in integration costs until closing of the thyssenkrupp Mining business transaction. The transaction will close on 31 August 2022. We will publish a new financial guidance no later than in connection with our 9M 2022 financial release.
A presentation of the results will take place on 19 August 2022 at 10:00 CET. Mr. Mikko Keto (Group CEO) and Mr. Roland M. Andersen (Group CFO) will comment on the report and developments in the Group. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A-session.
