  • CEO QUOTE

    Jim Fitterling, chairman and chief executive officer, commented on the quarter:

    “Team Dow once again delivered net sales growth both year-over-year and sequentially with price increases across all operating segments and regions. Our competitive advantages and relentless focus on disciplined execution enabled us to navigate the impacts of pandemic-related lockdowns in China, continued logistics constraints, and higher energy and raw material costs. As a result, we increased our cash flow and our share buybacks sequentially.

    “We continued to progress our strategy to grow our underlying earnings over the economic cycle by investing in higher-return, faster-payback projects while capitalizing on long-term growth opportunities. As part of these efforts, today we announced a series of circularity projects that will enable us to achieve approximately two thirds of our 2030 ‘Stop the Waste’ target as we capture growth for the sustainable and circular solutions our customers are increasingly demanding.”

    Packaging & Specialty Plastics segment net sales in the quarter were $8.2 billion, up 16% versus the year-ago period.

On a sequential basis, the segment delivered an 8% net sales increase, driven primarily by local price gains in both businesses and in all regions.

    Equity earnings were $138 million, up $8 million compared to the year-ago period primarily due to the Sadara joint venture. On a sequential basis, equity earnings increased by $28 million on gains at Sadara and the Kuwait joint ventures.

EBIT was up $202 million and Op. EBIT margins increased by 120 basis points due to improved product mix and integrated margins which offset higher raw material and energy costs, primarily in the U.S. & Canada.

Prices increased across all key product chains, led by gains in functional polymers and volumes increased on strong demand growth in packaging end-markets and materials for renewable energy applications. Sequentially, the business increased revenue on price gains in all regions, primarily in industrial, consumer, and food packaging applications.

    Hydrocarbons & Energy business delivered a net sales increase compared to the year-ago period, driven primarily by higher local prices for olefins and aromatics. Sequentially, sales increased due to higher olefin prices with gains in Europe and the U.S. & Canada.

Currency decreased net sales by 4%. Volume was down 6% year-over-year, as declines in Polyurethanes & Construction Chemicals were partly offset by gains in Industrial Solutions. On a sequential basis, the segment recorded a net sales decline of 3%, as lower volumes due to planned maintenance turnaround activity and third-party outages were partly offset by price gains in both businesses.

    Equity earnings for the segment were $57 million, a decrease of $87 million compared to the year-ago period, driven by the impact of pandemic-related lockdowns in China. On a sequential basis, equity earnings decreased by $5 million due to lower MEG margins at the Kuwait joint ventures.

    Operating EBIT was $426 million, compared to $648 million in the year-ago period and $661 million in the prior quarter, as increased planned maintenance turnaround activity along with raw material and energy costs were partly offset by higher pricing.

EBIT margins expanded by 960 basis points primarily due to pricing gains for both silicones and coatings applications. Sequentially, Op.

    Non-GAAP Financial Measures

    This earnings release includes information that does not conform to U.S. GAAP and are considered non-GAAP measures. Management uses these measures internally for planning, forecasting and evaluating the performance of the Company’s segments, including allocating resources. Dow’s management believes that these non-GAAP measures best reflect the ongoing performance of the Company during the periods presented and provide more relevant and meaningful information to investors as they provide insight with respect to ongoing operating results of the Company and a more useful comparison of year-over-year results. These non-GAAP measures supplement the Company’s U.S. GAAP disclosures and should not be viewed as alternatives to U.S. GAAP measures of performance. Furthermore, such non-GAAP measures may not be consistent with similar measures provided or used by other companies. Non-GAAP measures included in this release are defined below. Reconciliations for these non-GAAP measures to U.S. GAAP are provided in the Selected Financial Information and Non-GAAP Measures section starting on page 11. Dow does not provide forward-looking U.S. GAAP financial measures or a reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis because the Company is unable to predict with reasonable certainty the ultimate outcome of pending litigation, unusual gains and losses, foreign currency exchange gains or losses and potential future asset impairments, as well as discrete taxable events, without unreasonable effort. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and could have a material impact on U.S. GAAP results for the guidance period.

    Operating Earnings Per Share is defined as “Earnings per common share – diluted” excluding the after-tax impact of significant items.

    Operating EBIT is defined as earnings (i.e., “Income before income taxes”) before interest, excluding the impact of significant items.

    Operating EBIT margin is defined as Operating EBIT as a percentage of net sales.

    Operating EBITDA is defined as earnings (i.e., “Income before income taxes”) before interest, depreciation and amortization, excluding the impact of significant items.

    Free Cash Flow is defined as “Cash provided by operating activities – continuing operations,” less capital expenditures. Under this definition, Free Cash Flow represents the cash generated by the Company from operations after investing in its asset base. Free Cash Flow, combined with cash balances and other sources of liquidity, represent the cash available to fund obligations and provide returns to shareholders. Free Cash Flow is an integral financial measure used in the Company’s financial planning process.

    Cash Flow Conversion is defined as “Cash provided by operating activities – continuing operations,” divided by Operating EBITDA. Management believes Cash Flow Conversion is an important financial metric as it helps the Company determine how efficiently it is converting its earnings into cash flow.

    Operating Return on Capital (ROC) is defined as net operating profit after tax, excluding the impact of significant items, divided by total average capital, also referred to as ROIC.
