Share

COMPANY ANNOUNCEMENT NO. 9-2022

Highlights in Q1 2022

  • Strong order intake driven by both Mining and Cement
  • Strong revenue growth driven by a high order backlog
  • Group EBITA increased by 59%
  • Negative cash flow, as expected, due to increase in net working capital
  • Regulatory clearances received for the thyssenkrupp Mining business acquisition in several important mining markets

Group order intake increased 35% organically, driven by both Mining and Cement. Capital orders increased by 59% and service orders increased 26%. Mining order intake increased 38% organically, including four large product orders with a combined value of around DKK 1.4bn. Cement order intake increased 28% organically.

FLSmidth Group CEO, Mikko Keto, commented: “The first quarter of 2022 saw a strong momentum in order intake driven by both Mining and Cement. Despite the tragic war in Ukraine, activity and sentiment in the mining industry remains positive. Integration planning of the thyssenkrupp Mining business acquisition is progressing according to plan and important regulatory clearances have been received during the quarter. Our Cement business has continued its positive development on improving profitability. We saw strong organic Group revenue growth of 23%, mainly driven by Mining. Group EBITA increased by 59% compared to first quarter in 2021 despite increased inflationary pressure, supply chain challenges and negative impact from the war in Ukraine. Our key priority in this challenging time of war has been on the safety and well-being of our employees. We closely follow this tragic situation to ensure we take the right responsible decisions from a humanitarian, legal, and financial point of view”


Financial performance
Mining revenue grew 30% organically, driven by the higher backlog and improved market conditions compared to Q1 2021, partly offset by negative impact from the war. Mining EBITA increased by 17% to DKK 249m in Q1 2022, while the corresponding EBITA margin decreased to 7.7% from 8.8% in Q1 2021. Mining EBITA was impacted by costs related to the acquisition of thyssenkrupp’s Mining business of DKK 37m. Adjusted for these costs, the Mining EBITA margin was 8.8% in Q1 2022.

Cement revenue grew 10% organically. Cement EBITA continued the positive trend seen in Q4 2021, driven by higher revenue in the quarter and improvements from the executed reshaping activities in 2021. Cement EBITA amounted to DKK 53m in Q1 2022 and the corresponding EBITA margin increased to 3.6% compared to -1.7% in Q1 2021. Adjusted for a gain of DKK 23m from a sale of a property, the Cement EBITA margin was 2.0%.

Organic Group revenue increased 23% in Q1 2022, mainly driven Mining. Including currency effects, Group revenue increased by 27% to DKK 4,706m, driven primarily by 56% increase in capital revenue. Service revenue accounted for 56% of the total revenue during the quarter, compared to 65% in Q1 2021. Group EBITA increased by 59% to DKK 302m, as a result of the higher revenue. The corresponding Group EBITA margin increased to 6.4% from 5.1%.


The net working capital ratio increased from 6.0% in Q4 2021 to 7.3% in Q1 2022. The increase related primarily to an expected increase in inventories to mitigate the supply chain challenges and an increase in net work in progress driven by the increase in execution of capital orders. Cash flow from operating activities (CFFO) declined in line with expectations in Q1 2022, as a result of the net working capital outflow.


Financial guidance 2022 maintained
FLSmidth maintains its financial guidance for 2022. Due to the war in Ukraine, the Mining EBITA margin is expected to be in the low end of the guidance range.

Guidance 2022Revenue (DKKbn)EBITA margin
Mining12.0-13.08.5-9.5%
Cement5.5-6.01-2%
Group17.5-19.06-7%

Guidance for 2022 is subject to increased uncertainty due to the pandemic, global supply chain situation and geopolitical turmoil.
