ICL Reports Outstanding Second Quarter 2021 Results

Record results in Industrial Products, Phosphate Solutions and Innovative Ag Solutions, aided by continued focus on specialties

TEL AVIV, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ICL (NYSE: ICL) (TASE: ICL), a leading global specialty minerals company, today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021. Consolidated sales of $1,617 million were up 34% year-over-year. Operating income of $243 million was up versus an operating loss of $169 million, while adjusted operating income of $236 million was up 84% versus $128 million. Net income of $140 million was up versus a net loss of $168 million, while adjusted net income of $135 million was up nearly 90% versus $72 million. Adjusted EBITDA of $351 million was up 43% over $246 million.

ICL reported another quarter of record-breaking results, driven by its specialties businesses and augmented by commodity price upside. The strong performance across all divisions was supported by increased demand and higher prices in most markets. In addition, just after the quarter ended, the company completed its acquisition of the Compass Minerals South American Plant Nutrition business, making ICL the leading specialty plant nutrition company in Brazil – one of the world’s fastest growing agriculture markets.

“During the quarter, our Industrial Products, Phosphate Solutions and Innovative Ag Solutions businesses all delivered high double-digit growth in segment profit and EBITDA. We saw continued end-market recovery in Industrial Products, with record sales for bromine compounds and phosphorous- and magnesia-based products. Phosphate Solutions delivered record results in both specialties and commodities, as did our YPH joint venture in China. For Innovative Ag Solutions, all product lines showed sales growth, with improvement across both existing and new markets. We also continued with our focused innovation approach for new product development and operational excellence across all divisions,” said Raviv Zoller, president and CEO of ICL.

Due to another quarter of strong results and improved market conditions, ICL is raising its expectations for full year adjusted EBITDA to a range of $1,315 million to $1,375 million. (1a)

Industrial Products

Second quarter 2021

  • Record sales of $410 million were up $125 million or 44%.
  • Record segment profit of $114 million was up $44 million or 63%.
  • Record EBITDA of $128 million was up $40 million or 45%.
  • While the company was able to offset higher freight rates and raw material prices, which continued to increase during the quarter, raw material constraints limited production quantities.

Highlights

  • Elemental bromine: Sales were up on higher prices, as market prices in China continued to increase, due to higher demand for flame retardants and limited local supply.
  • Bromine-based flame retardants: Sales were up, with continued demand for consumer electronics, strength in automotive end-markets, and as the strategic shift to long-term contracts continued.
  • Clear brine fluids: Sales were up, as some regions saw improved demand, due to the rising price of oil. Overall demand trends remained under pressure and have not returned to pre-COVID levels, as oil and gas drilling activities in the Gulf of Mexico and the Mediterranean have not recovered.
  • Phosphorus-based flame retardants: Sales were up, with strong demand from the construction industry, especially in Europe and North America.
  • Specialty minerals: Results were driven by record magnesia-based sales, higher prices, and strong demand from the supplements and pharmaceuticals end markets.

Potash

Second quarter 2021

  • Sales of $412 million were up $72 million or 21%.
  • Segment profit of $43 million was up $5 million or 13%.
  • EBITDA of $85 million was up $5 million or 6%.
  • Grain Price Index increased year-over-year, with corn up 100.9%, soybeans up 53.8% and wheat up 42.5%, due to strong global demand, which supported higher potash prices.
  • Average potash realized price per ton of $281 was up approximately 25% year-over-year, with recent price increases expected to have a significant impact in the second half of the year.
  • Business at capacity, due to continued good environment, with tight supply.

Highlights

  • ICL Dead Sea
    • As expected, production declined year-over-year, following the successful annual one-week maintenance shutdown completed in early April.
  • ICL Iberia
    • Production was down year-over-year, due to the shutdown for the commissioning of the ramp connecting the Cabanasses mine and the Suria plant, which began in late March and continued through April. The project is expected to increase the mine’s capacity, with the annual run rate projected to reach approximately 1 million tons by the beginning of 2022.
  • ICL Boulby
    • Polysulphate production was up 5% year-over-year to ~193,000 tons, while sales volume was up 40% year-over-year to ~183,000 tons.

    • Phosphate commodities: Record sales of $295 million, up $129 million or 78%.

    • Phosphate specialties: Record EBITDA of $50 million, up $6 million or 14%.
    • Phosphate commodities: Record EBITDA of $84 million, up $68 million or 425%.
  • The YPH joint venture delivered year-over-year improvement in results, due to increased volumes, higher commodity prices, and continued efficiency improvements.
  • Commodity market price improvement continued in the second quarter, along with increased prices for raw materials, mainly sulfur, as well as higher freight costs and supply chain challenges.

Highlights

  • Phosphate salts: Sales were up significantly, with higher sales of both food grade phosphates and industrial salts.
    • Food phosphates: Strong volume momentum in North America, combined with higher global prices, drove year-over-year improvement. Food service began to recover, and retail demand remained strong, while product innovation and integrated solutions also contributed.
    • Industrial salts: Sales were up, due to higher demand in most regions and industries, and as the institutional cleaning end-market started to show signs of improvement.
  • White phosphoric acid: Sales were up appreciably, driven by increased volumes in all regions, especially South America, and higher prices in all regions.
  • Dairy protein: Sales were up, despite slower growth in Asia Pacific, due to a continued focus on maintaining the company’s global leadership position in the organic cow and goat ingredients market.
  • Phosphate fertilizers: Sales were up, driven by higher volumes and as prices continued to surge – especially in the U.S. and Brazil – while raw material prices and freight costs also increased.

Innovative Ag Solutions

Second quarter 2021

  • Sales of $237 million were up $41 million or 21%.
  • Record segment profit of $20 million was up $5 million or 33%, even with higher raw material prices and freight rates.

Highlights

  • Specialty agriculture: Solid sales growth – due to higher volumes of straights, liquid and controlled-release fertilizers – mainly in Europe, China, and North and South America.
  • Turf and ornamental: Record results, with all geographies showing growth – especially new markets. Higher volumes and selling prices translated into higher profit, despite raw material price pressure.
  • On July 1, the company announced it had completed the acquisition of the South American Plant Nutrition business from Compass Minerals for approximately US$420 million. The acquisition is expected to position ICL as the leading specialty plant nutrition company in Brazil and to provide further seasonal balance between the Northern and Southern hemispheres.

Financial Items

Financing Expenses

Net financing expenses for the second quarter of 2021 were $30 million, similar to the $31 million in the same quarter of last year.

Tax Expenses

Tax expenses in the second quarter of 2021 were $64 million, reflecting an effective tax rate of 30%, versus tax income of $33 million the prior year. The higher than usual effective tax rate was mainly due to the strengthening of the Israeli Shekel during the quarter, changes in deferred tax balances due to higher profitability, and, to a lesser degree, provisions for taxes in Brazil, which has a tax rate higher than the corporate average.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

ICL has long-term credit facilities of $1,100 million, of which $273 million were utilized as of June 30, 2021.

Outstanding Net Debt

As of June 30, 2021, ICL’s net financial liabilities amounted to $2,432 million, an increase of $14 million compared to December 31, 2020.

Dividend Distribution

In connection with ICL’s second quarter 2021 results, the Board of Directors declared a dividend of 5.26 cents per share, or approximately $68 million, which will be payable on September 1, 2021, to shareholders of record as of August 18, 2021.

Guidance

(1a) The company only provides guidance on a non-GAAP basis. The company does not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) to GAAP net income (loss), due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliation, in particular because special items such as restructuring, litigation and other matters, used to calculate projected net income (loss) vary dramatically based on actual events, the company is not able to forecast on a GAAP basis with reasonable certainty all deductions needed in order to provide a GAAP calculation of projected net income (loss) at this time. The amount of these deductions may be material and, therefore, could result in projected GAAP net income (loss) being materially less than projected adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP). The guidance speaks only as of the date hereof. We undertake no obligation to update any of these forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this news release or to reflect actual outcomes, unless required by law.

Non-GAAP Statement

The company discloses in this quarterly announcement non-IFRS financial measures titled adjusted operating income, adjusted net income attributable to the company’s shareholders, diluted adjusted earnings per share and adjusted EBITDA. The management uses adjusted operating income, adjusted net income attributable to the company’s shareholders, diluted adjusted earnings per share and adjusted EBITDA to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period. The company calculates adjusted operating income by adjusting operating income to add certain items, as set forth in the reconciliation table under adjustments to reported operating and net income (non-GAAP). Certain of these items may recur. The company calculates adjusted net income attributable to the company’s shareholders by adjusting net income attributable to the company’s shareholders to add certain items, as set forth in the reconciliation table under adjustments to reported operating and net income (non-GAAP), excluding the total tax impact of such adjustments. The company calculates diluted adjusted earnings per share by dividing adjusted net income by the weighted-average number of diluted ordinary shares outstanding. The company calculates adjusted EBITDA by adding back to the net income attributable to the company’s shareholders the depreciation and amortization, financing expenses, net, taxes on income and the items presented in the reconciliation table under consolidated adjusted EBITDA and diluted adjusted earnings per share for the periods of activity (non-GAAP), which were adjusted for in calculating the adjusted operating income and adjusted net income attributable to the company’s shareholders. Other companies may calculate similarly titled non‑IFRS financial measures differently than the company.

You should not view adjusted operating income, adjusted net income attributable to the company’s shareholders, diluted adjusted earnings per share or adjusted EBITDA as a substitute for operating income or net income attributable to the company’s shareholders determined in accordance with IFRS, and you should note that the definitions of adjusted operating income, adjusted net income attributable to the company’s shareholders, diluted adjusted earnings per share and adjusted EBITDA may differ from those used by other companies. Additionally, other companies may use other measures to evaluate their performance, which may reduce the usefulness of ICL’s non-IFRS financial measures as tools for comparison. However, the company believes adjusted operating income, adjusted net income attributable to the company’s shareholders, diluted adjusted earnings per share and adjusted EBITDA provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain items management believes are not indicative of ongoing operations. Management uses these non-IFRS measures to evaluate the company's business strategies and management's performance. The company believes these non‑IFRS measures provide useful information to investors because they improve the comparability of financial results between periods and provide for greater transparency of key measures used to evaluate performance.

The company presents a discussion in the period-to-period comparisons of the primary drivers of changes in the results of operations. This discussion is based in part on management’s best estimates of the impact of the main trends on its businesses. The company has based the following discussion on its financial statements. You should read such discussion together with the financial statements.

(1)

For 2021, reflects a disposal of an initial investment that will not materialize in Spain and an increase in restoration costs related to Rotem Amfert Israel, which was offset by a reversal of impairment in Rotem Amfert Israel due to the strengthening of phosphate prices. For 2020, reflects an impairment and write-off of certain assets in Rotem Amfert Israel, following low phosphate prices and the discontinuation of the unprofitable production and sale of phosphate rock activity, which also led to an increase in the provision for asset retirement obligation (ARO) and in facilities restoration costs. Also, reflects an impairment of assets and an increase in closure costs, as a result of the closure of the Sallent site (Vilafruns) in Spain.

(2)

For 2021, reflects a reversal of VAT provision following a court ruling in Brazil, less reimbursement of arbitration costs pursuant to the tribunal's decision in Europe regarding the investment in the Ethiopian potash project.

(3)

For 2020, this reflects an increase in the provision following implementation of an efficiency plan, primarily through an early retirement plan, at Israeli production facilities (Rotem Amfert Israel, Bromine Compounds and Dead Sea Magnesium).
