In addition, as discussed below, it is not possible, without unreasonable efforts, to identify the timing or occurrence of future events, transactions, and/or investment activity that could have a significant effect on the Company's future GAAP EPS or cash flow used for investing activities if any of these events were to occur.

Fiscal 2024 First Quarter Consolidated Results

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., Feb. 5, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Products (NYSE:APD) today reported first quarter fiscal 2024 results, including GAAP EPS from continuing operations of $2.73, up six percent from prior year. GAAP net income of $622 million was up six percent over the prior year due to higher equity affiliates' income, higher pricing, and higher volumes, partially offset by higher costs. GAAP net income margin of 20.7 percent increased 230 basis points over the prior year, which included a positive impact of about 200 basis points from lower energy cost pass-through. Air Products' GAAP results include costs for the non-service related components of the Company's defined benefit pension plans, which are reflected as adjustments to the non-GAAP measures discussed below.

For the quarter, on a non-GAAP basis, adjusted EPS from continuing operations of $2.82 increased seven percent over the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA of $1.2 billion was up eight percent over the prior year, due to higher equity affiliates' income, higher volumes, and higher pricing, partially offset by higher costs. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 39.2 percent increased 510 basis points over the prior year, which included a positive impact of about 400 basis points from lower energy cost pass-through.

First quarter sales of $3.0 billion decreased six percent from the prior year, as three percent higher volumes, one percent higher pricing, and one percent favorable currency were more than offset by 11 percent lower energy cost pass-through, which negatively affected sales but had no impact on net income.

Commenting on the results, Air Products' Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Seifi Ghasemi said, "Despite significant geopolitical and economic headwinds, the team at Air Products performed well, increasing our adjusted EPS by seven percent over last year. Our reported results were lower than our expectations, mainly due to a slowdown in manufacturing in Asia, particularly in China; lower helium demand; cost headwinds from a sale of equipment project; and currency devaluation in Argentina. We are moving forward to successfully implement our ambitious, long-term growth strategy through our core industrial gases business and as a leader in low-carbon intensity hydrogen to generate a cleaner future for the world."

Fiscal 2024 First Quarter Results by Business Segment

Americas sales of $1.3 billion were down 10 percent versus the prior year, as three percent higher volumes driven by strong hydrogen demand and two percent higher pricing were more than offset by 15 percent lower energy cost pass-through. Operating income of $354 million increased three percent and adjusted EBITDA of $561 million increased nine percent, in each case primarily due to higher pricing and volumes, partially offset by higher costs. Adjusted EBITDA also benefited from higher equity affiliates' income. Operating margin of 28.3 percent increased 350 basis points and adjusted EBITDA margin of 44.8 percent increased 760 basis points. The operating margin and adjusted EBITDA margin improvements included positive impacts from lower energy cost pass-through of approximately 400 basis points and 600 basis points, respectively.
Asia sales of $794 million increased two percent over the prior year, as two percent higher energy cost pass-through and one percent higher pricing were partially offset by one percent unfavorable currency. Volumes were flat, as higher on-site volumes were offset by weak economic growth in China and lower activity in helium. Operating income of $211 million decreased 10 percent and adjusted EBITDA of $327 million decreased five percent, in each case primarily due to unfavorable volume mix and higher costs. Operating margin of 26.6 percent decreased 370 basis points and adjusted EBITDA margin of 41.2 percent decreased 320 basis points.
Europe sales of $731 million decreased eight percent from the prior year, as nine percent favorable volumes driven by our on-site business and five percent favorable currency were more than offset by 20 percent lower energy cost pass-through and two percent lower pricing. Operating income of $198 million increased 36 percent and adjusted EBITDA of $267 million increased 28 percent, as higher volumes, lower power costs, and favorable currency more than offset inflation and higher maintenance costs. Operating margin of 27.0 percent increased 860 basis points and adjusted EBITDA margin of 36.4 percent increased 1,020 basis points. The operating margin and adjusted EBITDA margin improvements included positive impacts from lower energy cost pass-through of approximately 350 basis points and 550 basis points, respectively.
Middle East and India equity affiliates income of $93 million increased 45 percent compared to the prior year, primarily due to the completion of the second phase of the Jazan project in January 2023.
Corporate and other sales of $185 million increased three percent compared to the prior year and reflected higher LNG sale of equipment activity.
Outlook
Air Products now expects full-year fiscal 2024 adjusted EPS guidance* of $12.20 to $12.50, up six to nine percent over prior year adjusted EPS. For the second quarter of fiscal 2024, Air Products' adjusted EPS guidance* is $2.60 to $2.75.

Air Products continues to expect capital expenditures* of $5.0 billion to $5.5 billion for full-year fiscal 2024.


*Management is unable to reconcile, without unreasonable effort, the Company's forecasted range of adjusted EPS
or capital expenditures to a comparable GAAP range. Air Products provides adjusted EPS guidance on a continuing
operations basis, excluding the impact of certain items that management believes are not representative of the
Company's underlying business performance, such as the incurrence of costs for cost reduction actions and
impairment charges, or the recognition of gains or losses on certain disclosed items. It is not possible, without
unreasonable efforts, to predict the timing or occurrence of these events or the potential for other transactions that
may impact future GAAP EPS. Similarly, it is not possible, without unreasonable efforts, to reconcile forecasted
capital expenditures to future cash used for investing activities because management is not able to identify the
timing or occurrence of future investment activity, which is driven by management's assessment of competing
opportunities at the time the Company enters into transactions. Furthermore, it is not possible to identify the
potential significance of these events in advance, but any of these events, if they were to occur, could have a
significant effect on the Company's future GAAP results

*Certain results in this release, including in the highlights above, include references to non-GAAP financial measures on a consolidated, continuing operations basis and a segment basis. Additional information regarding these measures and reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP historical results can be found below. In addition, as discussed below, it is not possible, without unreasonable efforts, to identify the timing or occurrence of future events, transactions, and/or investment activity that could have a significant effect on the Company's future GAAP EPS or cash flow used for investing activities if any of these events were to occur.

Air Products (NYSE: APD) today reported second quarter fiscal 2023 results, including GAAP EPS from continuing operations of $1.97, down 17 percent from prior year. This includes an unfavorable $0.77 per share impact, primarily from business and asset actions related to the Company's withdrawal from projects in Indonesia and Ukraine. GAAP net income of $450 million was down 16 percent and GAAP net income margin of 14.1 percent decreased 410 basis points from the prior year as higher costs, including the charge for business and asset actions, were only partially offset by higher pricing and higher volumes, as well as higher equity affiliates' income from the Jazan project.

For the quarter, on a non-GAAP basis, adjusted EPS from continuing operations of $2.74 increased 17 percent over the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA of $1,151 million was up 13 percent and adjusted EBITDA margin of 36.0 percent increased 140 basis points over the prior year, as higher pricing, higher volumes, and higher equity affiliates' income more than offset higher costs.

Second quarter sales of $3.2 billion increased nine percent over the prior year on eight percent higher pricing and six percent higher volumes, partially offset by four percent unfavorable currency and one percent lower energy cost pass-through. Higher pricing across the regions and higher on-site volumes drove the results.

Commenting on the results, Air Products' Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Seifi Ghasemi said, "Our team successfully drove pricing and volumes in our base business, delivering critical productivity, efficiency and sustainability benefits for our customers. The team also continued to advance our first-mover clean hydrogen mega projects that will decarbonize heavy transportation and industrial sectors globally. I am proud of the continued achievements of our team who delivered outstanding results despite the ongoing economic and geopolitical challenges in the world."

Fiscal 2023 Second Quarter Results by Business Segment

Americas sales of $1,373 million were up 16 percent over the prior year on nine percent higher volumes and eight percent higher pricing, partially offset by one percent unfavorable currency. Operating income of $324 million increased 18 percent and adjusted EBITDA of $514 million increased 14 percent, in each case due to higher pricing and higher volumes, partially offset by higher costs. Operating margin of 23.6 percent increased 40 basis points primarily due to higher pricing, while adjusted EBITDA margin of 37.4 percent decreased 50 basis points.

Asia sales of $814 million increased eight percent over the prior year, as seven percent higher volumes, five percent higher pricing and three percent higher energy cost pass-through more than offset seven percent unfavorable currency. Operating income of $233 million increased 14 percent and adjusted EBITDA of $350 million increased nine percent, in each case due to the favorable volumes and pricing, partially offset by higher costs and unfavorable currency. Operating margin of 28.6 percent increased 150 basis points and adjusted EBITDA margin of 43.0 percent increased 20 basis points.

Europe sales of $753 million increased two percent over the prior year, driven by 11 percent higher pricing and three percent higher volumes, partially offset by six percent lower energy cost pass-through and six percent unfavorable currency.

Operating margin of 23.0 percent increased 720 basis points and adjusted EBITDA margin of 33.3 percent increased 760 basis points.

Middle East and India equity affiliates' income of $99 million increased 39 percent compared to the prior year, primarily due to the completion of the second phase of the Jazan project.

Corporate and other sales of $215 million decreased 10 percent compared to the prior year, driven by lower sale of equipment activity.
Outlook

Air Products provides adjusted EPS guidance on a continuing operations basis, excluding the impact of certain items that management believes are not representative of the Company's underlying business performance, such as the incurrence of costs for cost reduction actions and impairment charges, or the recognition of gains or losses on disclosed items. It is not possible, without unreasonable efforts, to predict the timing or occurrence of these events or the potential for other transactions that may impact future GAAP EPS. Similarly, it is not possible, without unreasonable efforts, to reconcile the forecasted capital expenditures to future cash used for investing activities because management is not able to identify the timing or occurrence of future investment activity, which is driven by management's assessment of competing opportunities at the time the Company enters into transactions. Furthermore, it is not possible to identify the potential significance of these events in advance, but any of these events, if they were to occur, could have a significant effect on the Company's future GAAP results. Management therefore is unable to reconcile, without unreasonable effort, the Company's forecasted range of adjusted EPS or the capital expenditures to a comparable GAAP range.

Air Products expects full-year fiscal 2023 adjusted EPS guidance of $11.30 to $11.50, up 10 to 12 percent over prior year adjusted EPS. For the fiscal 2023 third quarter, Air Products' adjusted EPS guidance is $2.85 to $2.95, up 10 to 14 percent over fiscal 2022 third quarter adjusted EPS.

Effective beginning in the first quarter of fiscal year 2023, management reviews adjusted EPS excluding the impact of non-service related components of the net periodic benefit/cost for the Company's defined benefit pension plans. The projected percentage increase in adjusted EPS for full year fiscal 2023 and fiscal 2023 third quarter is calculated using fiscal 2022 results recast on a consistent basis. Refer to the reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP historical results below for additional information.

Air Products continues to expect capital expenditures of $5.0 - $5.5 billion for full-year fiscal 2023.

Air Products to close Pennsylvania plant, idling 75 workers

Air Products & Chemicals (APD +0.1%) says it is closing its Hanover Township, Pa. plant after more than 60 years, citing a decline in global orders.

The plant's 75 workers, who will lose their jobs effective Aug. 1, build heat exchangers, which are tanks up to 180 ft. long that cool natural gas as it comes out of the ground so it can be liquefied and shipped abroad.

APD still has a plant in Port Manatee, Fla., which is closer to the seaport needed to ship the exchangers overseas.

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., Oct. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Fourth Quarter Highlights

โ€ข Sales of $2.6 billion up 11%
โ€ข EPS of $1.51 up 12% [non-GAAP]
โ€ข Awarded significant Tonnage contracts in the U.S. Gulf Coast and China
โ€ข Agreement with new equity affiliate partner in Saudi Arabia

Full Year Highlights

โ€ข Sales of $10.1 billion up 12%
โ€ข EPS of $5.73 up 14% [non-GAAP]
โ€ข Capital spending of $1.6 billion up 22%*
โ€ข $649 million in share repurchases completed and new $1 billion authorization
โ€ข Dividend increased for 29th consecutive year

Air Products (NYSE:APD) today reported net income of $325 million, or diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $1.51, for its fiscal 2011 fourth quarter versus $294 million* and $1.35*, respectively, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010.

The discussion of fourth quarter and full year results and guidance in this release is based on non-GAAP comparisons. A reconciliation can be found at the end of this release.*

Fourth quarter revenues of $2,611 million increased 11 percent versus prior year and one percent sequentially. Underlying revenues were up six percent and two percent, respectively. Operating income of $425 million rose six percent versus prior year and two percent sequentially on improved volumes.

For fiscal 2011, sales of $10,082 million increased 12 percent, primarily driven by a nine percent volume increase. Operating income of $1,671 million was up 13 percent and diluted EPS of $5.73 increased 14 percent from the prior year.

Commenting on the results, John McGlade, chairman, president and CEO said, "This quarter's improvements were driven by growth in emerging markets and strong performance in our Tonnage Gases business. Overall economic activity for this quarter continued at the slower underlying growth rate we saw last quarter."

Reflecting on the year, McGlade said, "We achieved another solid year of key project wins, double digit sales and earnings growth despite a slowing global economy in the second half of 2011. More importantly, we saw strong gains in operating cash flow, and we improved our most important measure, return on capital, by 80 basis points to 13.3% for the year."

Fourth Quarter Segment Performance

โ€ข Merchant Gases sales of $1,045 million increased 10 percent from the prior year on higher volumes in Asia and U.S./Canada. Sequentially, sales increased two percent, on three percent volume growth. Operating income of $192 million improved four percent from the prior year on better volumes and positive pricing in Asia and U.S./Canada. This was partially offset by higher costs and lower Healthcare pricing in Europe.

โ€ข Tonnage Gases sales of $883 million were up 17 percent from the prior year on 11 percent volume growth, primarily driven by new projects. Sales were up two percent sequentially. Operating income of $152 million was up 30 percent from the prior year, based on higher volumes, lower costs and gains related to contract modifications.

โ€ข Electronics and Performance Materials sales of $587 million increased 12 percent from the prior year, primarily on higher Electronics volumes and Performance Materials pricing. Sequentially, sales decreased three percent on lower Performance Materials volumes due to slowdowns in key markets including housing, construction and autos. Operating income of $92 million was up nine percent on higher Electronics volumes and improved pricing in Performance Materials.

โ€ข Equipment and Energy sales of $96 million and operating income of $12 million were down 25 percent and 43 percent, respectively, versus the prior year due to lower LNG and air separation unit activity. Sequential sales were up 21 percent on higher air separation unit activity. The sales backlog versus prior year is up 22 percent based on several new large orders.

Outlook

Looking ahead, McGlade said, "While the near-term economic outlook is for continued slow growth and is clouded by global economic and policy uncertainties, we are well positioned with a large backlog of projects backed by signed customer contracts. We are confident that the prospects for industrial gases and Air Products, in particular, remain bright, and we remain committed to achieving our 2015 goals for growth, margin and, most importantly, return on capital."

The company today announced initial guidance for fiscal year 2012 EPS in the range of $5.90 to $6.30 per share, representing year-over-year earnings growth of three to 10 percent. For the first quarter of fiscal 2012 ending December 31, 2011, EPS is expected to be between $1.31 and $1.39 per share.

The company also announced that it expects capital spending in fiscal 2012 to be between $1.9 and $2.2 billion.

Best Chemicals Stocks in Uncertain Times
Credit Suisse likes Air Products & Chemicals, Cytec and FMC.
http://online.barrons.com/article/SB50001424052702304133804576561051067921600.html?mod=BOL_hpp_oe

The recent moves in chemicals stocks tied to concerns about the macro have resulted in a number of opportunities for investors depending on their risk appetite. In general, we think it's too late to simply "sell beta and cyclicals" given the huge stock corrections we have seen in the space.

That said, while some names may have as much as a double ahead when the economic data turns up, it doesn't mean you can't be fired for being invested in them if we see a deep recession in the near term. As a result, we have attempted to frame the downside risk for the stocks in both a deep recession and a modest recession as well as the potential upside reward if the group enjoys modest growth in 2012.

We aren't sure what is going on in the macro. The macro environment appears to be in complete disarray owing to a host of financial/political drivers. This has led to various potential outcomes in 2012 ranging from a second credit crunch (and deep recession) to a moderate recession to simply more moderate growth compared to the past two-plus years (while the consensus and our published estimates may point to the "growth scenario," the buy-side expectations are clearly lower).

Following conversations with each of our companies as well as Credit Suisse's economists, we don't believe a deep recession/credit crunch is coming but to help frame the downside, we have included that as a possibility.

In our report we have worked to determine the potential earnings per share in 2012 in the aforementioned scenarios. In a 2008/2009 environment (unlikely but not impossible) the group should see earnings down about 29.5% in 2012 versus 2011 -- not as bad as what was reported in 2009 owing to cost cuts and balance-sheet changes but still solidly down. In a modest recession we believe the group would see earnings down roughly 8%. Finally, in a growth environment we could see earnings growth in 2012 of roughly 18%.

Largely, we believe the multiples seen in 2008/2009 are the most conservative/reasonable in determining a "worst case" scenario (with some adjustments for those debt-laden names thrown into the abyss that have since restructured their balance sheets). Meanwhile, historical multiple averages should be reasonable in determining upside in a modest recession or modest growth scenario.

With the above in mind looking at the overall risk/reward profiles, 10 of our 20 names under coverage have at least two times the potential upside (in the growth scenario) as they do downside (in the deep-recession scenario). In that group, only two have limited downside in a deep recession (less than 10%) and may have upper-teens-plus upside in the "modest recession" scenario -- Air Products & Chemicals (ticker: APD), Cytec Industries (CYT), although FMC (FMC) is not far off from these hurdles.

Names for investors with a greater ability to stomach risk would include: Dow Chemical (DOW), Ferro (FOE), Ashland (ASH) and Rockwood Holdings (ROC) -- offering 50%-plus upside in a growth environment and upside in a modest recession, but having solid downside in a deep recession.

In addition, for RPM International (RPM) we think the year-to-date stock weakness, the relative resilience of their earnings, and a high-dividend yield offer a decent risk/reward profile, so we are upgrading our rating to Neutral [from Underperform].

For Nalco Holding (NLC), with no upside in a growth environment (given the Ecolab (ECL) bid) and solid downside in the off chance the Ecolab merger falls through, we are downgrading our rating to Underperform [from Neutral].

Air Products Signs Gases Supply Deal with PV Manufacturer
Hunan Gongchuang Plans 40MW Facility
http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Air-Products-Signs-Gases-prnews-3533598890.html

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., Sept. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Products (NYSE:APD - News) today announced it has signed a contract with Hunan Gongchuang Photovoltaic Science & Technology Co., Ltd for the supply of bulk and specialty gases at its news silicon thin-film photovoltaic (PV) manufacturing facility in Hengyang City, Hunan Province, China.

The contract includes the supply of hydrogen and nitrogen, as well as silane, nitrogen trifluoride, dopant mixtures and other products.

Hunan Gongchuang is building a 40MW manufacturing facility utilizing Oerlikon Solar's Micromorph® turnkey production line, known as the FAB 1200. The new facility is expected to begin production by the end of this year.

"Air Products is pleased to be the primary gas supplier for Hunan Gongchuang's new thin-film PV facility," said Wayne Mitchell, vice president and general manager, Electronics, for Air Products. "We remain focused on helping our customers drive down their cost-per-watt through innovative materials and product delivery solutions."

Hunan Gongchuang's silicon thin-film PV modules, which convert sunlight directly into electricity, will be manufactured in much the same way as thin-film transistor liquid crystal displays (TFT-LCD). As one of the leading suppliers to the TFT-LCD industry, Air Products is ideally suited to supply the new facility.

Air Products recently dedicated a 2MW solar farm at its Corporate Headquarters in Allentown, Pa., that is comprised of more than 11,000 silicon thin-film panels supplied by two of its customers. The farm is capable of supplying enough energy to power more than half of the company's administration buildings and will lower its carbon dioxide (CO2) footprint by approximately 2,000 tons per year.

Air Products selected silicon thin-film panels to demonstrate its belief in the promising new technology and because the silicon thin-film panels provide the lowest cost of energy for the project parameters. Their advantageous performance in diffuse light ? the light most typical in the U.S. Northeast ? and their cost-effective installation for large area projects were drivers in the sourcing selection.

With the demand for renewable energy and improved efficiency on the rise, Air Products is well positioned to support these developing markets with its expertise and project experience in areas including large-scale hydrogen supply for cleaner transportation fuels, developmental work on the hydrogen economy, hydrogen vehicle fuelling and infrastructure, leading natural gas liquefaction technology, and now the growing supply of gases and services for the PV industry.

Air Products Announces North America Price Increase for Liquid and Bulk Helium Gases
http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/air-products-announces-north-america-price-increase-for-liquid-and-bulk-helium-gases-127737258.html

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., Aug. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Effective September 1, 2011, or as contracts permit, Air Products (NYSE: APD) will be implementing a price increase of 15 percent for liquid and bulk helium gases in North America.

The pricing adjustment is the result of several factors including the continued strong demand over the past year for helium and significant reductions in supply. The helium market has been tight across the globe with product allocations implemented by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and with many other global helium sources producing below capacity. Additionally, new helium sources located primarily outside of the U.S. are extremely expensive, wholesale prices for crude and processed liquid helium have increased, and costs have escalated for power and diesel.

Air Products' worldwide helium team is managing this difficult situation on a daily basis so that it can continue to bring uninterruptible supply to customers. It is expected that demand will exceed supply for the next two to three years, thus creating ongoing shortages in the market.

APD Shares Fall on Tepid FY4Q11 Forecast:

#msg-65492582

The 4% selloff following this earnings release provides a good entry point, IMO, insofar as the companyโ€™s 2015 forecast in #msg-64095618 remains unchanged. APD actually raised the lower bound of its FY2011 EPS guidance from $5.65 to $.70; however, the market treated this as a negative because APD left the upper bound of the range unchanged at $5.75. More important, APD maintained its 2015 outlook presented in #msg-64095618.

Morgan Stanley is reiterating its Overweight rating and is raising its price target from $105 to $115 on Air Products and Chemicals Inc. (NYSE: APD) following the company's Investor Day, held last week.

In the report, Morgan Stanley writes, โ€œLast week, Air Products hosted its 2011 investor day in New York. Management gave new long-term goals of $15 billion in revenue and 20% EBIT margin by 2015, and, perhaps most important, targeted a 150 bps improvement in return on capital. The company also announced a new contract to supply an additional 200mn cubic ft/day of hydrogen to a large US refiner. This will increase the company's sales to this market by 9% in 2013, or ~$160-170 million.โ€
