  • Operating margin expansion of 460 bps; adjusted operating margin expansion of 440 bps

SHELTON, CT. (October 31, 2023) – Hubbell Incorporated (NYSE: HUBB) today reported operating results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2023.

“Hubbell delivered strong earnings growth for shareholders in the third quarter,” said Gerben Bakker, Chairman, President and CEO. “We continued to drive significant margin expansion in the quarter through effective execution on price, cost and productivity, while also accelerating investment levels in capacity, productivity and innovation.”

Mr. Bakker continued, “Our leading quality and service levels supported strong price realization in the third quarter. In Utility Solutions, improved lead times drove further channel inventory normalization in utility distribution markets as anticipated, though end customer demand was solid. Transmission markets remained robust, and improved supply chain dynamics enabled accelerated sequential growth in utility communications and controls. Telcom markets were softer in the quarter. In Electrical Solutions, industrial end markets were solid, with strength in renewables and datacenter verticals. Channel inventory management continued to impact commercial facing markets as anticipated, and residential markets remained soft."

Mr. Bakker concluded, “Our third quarter performance reflects continued execution off of a strong first half in 2023. As grid modernization and electrification drive investment in critical infrastructure, Hubbell is uniquely positioned to serve the evolving needs of our utility and electrical customers. We expect to deliver attractive profitable growth for shareholders in 2024 and beyond."

Certain terms used in this release, including "net debt", "free cash flow", "organic net sales", "organic net sales growth", "restructuring-related costs", "Adjusted EBITDA", and certain other "adjusted" measures, are defined under the section entitled "Non-GAAP Definitions." See page 8 for more information.

THIRD QUARTER FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

The comments and year-over-year comparisons in this segment review are based on third quarter results in 2023 and 2022.

Utility Solutions segment net sales in the third quarter of 2023 increased 8% to $838 million compared to $775 million reported in the third quarter of 2022. Organic net sales increased 7% in the quarter while acquisitions added 1%. Total Utility T&D Components net sales increased approximately 3% and Utility Communications and Controls net sales increased approximately 28%. Operating income was $187 million, or 22.3% of net sales, in the third quarter of 2023 as compared to $130 million, or 16.8% of net sales in the same period of 2022. Adjusted operating income was $201 million, or 24.0% of net sales, in the third quarter of 2023 as compared to $144 million, or 18.6% of net sales in the same period of the prior year. Increases in operating income and operating margin were primarily due to price realization, lower raw material costs, and improved productivity, partially offset by non-material cost inflation and increased investment.

Electrical Solutions segment net sales in the third quarter of 2023 decreased 1% to $538 million compared to $542 million reported in the third quarter of 2022. Organic net sales decreased 1% in the quarter. Operating income was $90 million, or 16.6% of net sales, compared to $74 million, or 13.6% of net sales in the same period of 2022. Adjusted operating income was $94 million, or 17.5% of net sales, in the third quarter of 2023 as compared to $80 million, or 14.8% of net sales in the same period of the prior year. Increases in operating income and operating margin were driven primarily by price realization, lower raw material costs and improved productivity, partially offset by lower volume, non-material cost inflation and SKU optimization efforts.

Adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations in the third quarter 2023 excludes $0.25 of amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets. Adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations in the third quarter 2022 results exclude $0.28 of amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets and $0.02 due to a pension settlement charge.

Net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations was $194 million in the third quarter of 2023 versus net cash provided by operating activities of $220 million in the comparable period of 2022. Free cash flow was $159 million in the third quarter of 2023 versus $194 million in the comparable period of 2022.

SUMMARY & OUTLOOK

For the full year 2023, Hubbell anticipates diluted earnings per share from continuing operations in the range of $14.00-$14.25 and anticipates adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations ("Adjusted EPS") in the range of $15.00-$15.25. Adjusted EPS excludes amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, which the Company expects to be approximately $1.00 for the full year. The Company believes Adjusted EPS is a useful measure of underlying performance in light of our acquisition strategy.

Hubbell anticipates full year 2023 total sales growth of approximately 8% and organic net sales growth of approximately 7%, as compared to full year 2022. The Company anticipates net M&A contributing +1% to full year sales growth.

The diluted EPS and Adjusted EPS ranges are based on an adjusted tax rate of 22.5% to 23% and include approximately $0.20 of anticipated restructuring and related investment. The Company continues to expect full year 2023 free cash flow to be greater than $700 million.

NON-GAAP DEFINITIONS

References to "adjusted" operating measures exclude the impact of certain costs, gains or losses. Management believes these adjusted operating measures provide useful information regarding our underlying performance from period to period and an understanding of our results of operations without regard to items we do not consider a component of our core operating performance. Adjusted operating measures are non-GAAP measures, and include adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, adjusted net income from continuing operations attributed to Hubbell Incorporated, adjusted net income from continuing operations available to common shareholders, adjusted earnings per diluted share from continuing operations, and Adjusted EBITDA. These non-GAAP measures exclude, where applicable:

  • Amortization of all intangible assets associated with our business acquisitions, including inventory step-up amortization associated with those acquisitions. The intangible assets associated with our business acquisitions arise from the allocation of the purchase price using the acquisition method of accounting in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification 805, “Business Combinations.” These assets consist primarily of customer relationships, developed technology, trademarks and tradenames, and patents, as reported in Note 7—Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets, under the heading “Total Definite-Lived Intangibles,” within the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements set forth in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for Fiscal Year Ended December 31, 2022. The Company excludes these non-cash expenses because we believe it (i) enhances management’s and investors’ ability to analyze underlying business performance, (ii) facilitates comparisons of our financial results over multiple periods, and (iii) provides more relevant comparisons of our results with the results of other companies as the amortization expense associated with these assets may fluctuate significantly from period to period based on the timing, size, nature, and number of acquisitions. Although we exclude amortization of these acquired intangible assets and inventory step-up from our non-GAAP results, we believe that it is important for investors to understand that revenue generated, in part, from such intangibles is included within revenue in determining adjusted net income attributable to Hubbell Incorporated.
  • Pension charges including settlement charges in the nine months ended September 30, 2022.
  • Income tax effects of the above adjustments which are calculated using the statutory tax rate, taking into consideration the nature of the item and the relevant taxing jurisdiction, unless otherwise noted.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that excludes the items noted above and also excludes the Other income (expense), net, Interest expense, net, and Provision for income taxes captions of the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Income, as well as depreciation and amortization expense.

Net debt (defined as total debt less cash and investments) to total capital is a non-GAAP measure that we believe is a useful measure for evaluating the Company's financial leverage and the ability to meet its funding needs.

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP measure that we believe provides useful information regarding the Company's ability to generate cash without reliance on external financing. In addition, management uses free cash flow to evaluate the resources available for investments in the business, strategic acquisitions and further strengthening the balance sheet.

In connection with our restructuring and related actions, we have incurred restructuring costs as defined by U.S. GAAP, which are primarily severance and employee benefits, asset impairments, accelerated depreciation, as well as facility closure, contract termination and certain pension costs that are directly related to restructuring actions. We also incur restructuring-related costs, which are costs associated with our business transformation initiatives, including the consolidation of back-office functions and streamlining our processes, and certain other costs and gains associated with restructuring actions. We refer to these costs on a combined basis as "restructuring and related costs", which is a non-GAAP measure.

Organic net sales, a non-GAAP measure, represents net sales according to U.S. GAAP, less net sales from acquisitions and divestitures during the first twelve months of ownership or divestiture, respectively, less the effect of fluctuations in net sales from foreign currency exchange. The period-over-period effect of fluctuations in net sales from foreign currency exchange is calculated as the difference between local currency net sales of the prior period translated at the current period exchange rate as compared to the same local currency net sales translated at the prior period exchange rate. We believe this measure provides management and investors with a more complete understanding of underlying operating results and trends of established, ongoing operations by excluding the effect of acquisitions, dispositions and foreign currency, as these activities can obscure underlying trends. When comparing net sales growth between periods excluding the effects of acquisitions, business dispositions and currency exchange rates, those effects are different when comparing results for different periods. For example, because net sales from acquisitions are considered inorganic from the date we complete an acquisition through the end of the first year following the acquisition, net sales from such acquisition are reflected as organic net sales thereafter.

There are limitations to the use of non-GAAP measures. Non-GAAP measures do not present complete financial results. We compensate for this limitation by providing a reconciliation between our non-GAAP financial measures and the respective most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies’ non-GAAP financial measures having the same or similar names. These financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, as substitutes for, or alternative measures of, reported GAAP financial results, and should be viewed in conjunction with the most comparable GAAP financial measures and the provided reconciliations thereto. We believe, however, that these non-GAAP financial measures, when viewed together with our GAAP results and related reconciliations, provide a more complete understanding of our business. We strongly encourage investors to review our consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety and not rely on any single financial measure.

Reconciliations of each of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure can be found in the tables below. When we provide our expectations for organic net sales, adjusted effective tax rate, adjusted diluted EPS and free cash flow on a forward-looking basis, a reconciliation of the differences between the non-GAAP expectations and the corresponding GAAP measures (expected net sales, effective tax rate, diluted EPS and net cash flows provided by operating activities) generally is not available without unreasonable effort due to potentially high variability, complexity and low visibility as to the items that would be excluded from the GAAP measure in the relevant future period, such as unusual gains and losses, fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, the impact and timing of potential acquisitions and divestitures, certain financing costs, and other structural changes or their probable significance. The variability of the excluded items may have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on our future GAAP results.
