Dow reports third quarter 2021 results
FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS
•GAAP earnings per share (EPS) was $2.23; Operating EPS1 was $2.75, compared to $0.50 in the year-ago period. Operating EPS excludes certain items in the quarter, totaling $0.52 per share, primarily related to an early extinguishment of debt.
•Net sales were $14.8 billion, up 53% versus the year-ago period and 7% sequentially, with gains in all operating segments and regions.
•Local price increased 50% versus the year-ago period and 5% sequentially, reflecting gains in all operating segments, businesses and regions, driven by tight supply and demand dynamics across key value chains.
•Volume increased 2% versus the year-ago period, driven by gains in Packaging & Specialty Plastics and Performance Materials & Coatings. Sequentially, volume was also up 2%, reflecting ongoing economic recovery and continued underlying end-market demand strength, partly offset by supply and global logistics constraints.
•Equity earnings were $249 million, up $189 million from the year-ago period, primarily driven by margin expansion at Sadara and the Kuwait joint ventures. Equity earnings were down $29 million from the prior quarter as Sadara gains were more than offset primarily by a planned maintenance turnaround at a Kuwait joint venture.
•GAAP Net Income was $1.7 billion. Operating EBIT1 was $2.9 billion, up more than $2.1 billion from the year-ago period. Gains were posted across all operating segments and businesses, reflecting margin expansion and increased equity earnings. Sequentially, operating EBIT increased 2%, on gains in Industrial Intermediates & Infrastructure and Performance Materials and Coatings.
•Cash provided by operating activities - continuing operations was $2.7 billion, up $958 million year-over-year and an increase of $698 million compared to the prior quarter. Free cash flow1 was $2.3 billion.
•Gross debt was reduced by more than $1.1 billion in the quarter. Proactive liability management actions to tender existing notes have resulted in no substantive long-term debt maturities due until 2026 and reduced annual interest expense by more than $60 million.
•Returns to shareholders totaled $918 million in the quarter, comprised of $518 million in dividends and $400 million in share repurchases.

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

"The Dow team delivered another quarter of sequential and year-over-year top- and bottom-line growth. Despite higher energy costs and industry-wide value chain disruptions from hurricanes on the U.S. Gulf Coast, our proactive storm preparations enabled us to maintain the safety of our team and operations, and recover quickly. Coupled with our global footprint, feedstock flexibility and structural cost advantages, we continued to capture robust end-market demand and price momentum. As a result, we generated higher cash flow from operations and achieved sales growth across all segments and geographies.

Additionally, earlier this month at our 2021 Investor Day we outlined a strategic plan to increase underlying EBITDA by more than $3 billion across the cycle through the implementation of a phased and disciplined approach to decarbonize our footprint and grow earnings. Our strategy enables us to capture demand growth for circular and low- to zero-carbon emissions products; progress our productivity actions; and continue to deliver our financial priorities."

Packaging & Specialty Plastics segment net sales were $7.7 billion, up 69% versus the year-ago period. Local price increased 63% year-over-year due to tight supply and demand dynamics, with gains in both businesses and across all regions. Volume increased 5% year-over-year, as gains in energy and olefins were partly offset by lower polyethylene volumes due to weather-related supply constraints. Currency increased net sales by 1%. On a sequential basis, the segment recorded a 9% net sales improvement, primarily driven by continued local price gains in the U.S. & Canada.

Equity earnings for the segment were $124 million, up $53 million compared to the year-ago period due to higher integrated polyethylene margins at the principle joint ventures. On a sequential basis, equity earnings decreased by $6 million as earnings improvement at Sadara was more than offset by rising energy costs at the Kuwait and Thai joint ventures.

Operating EBIT was $2 billion, compared to $647 million in the year-ago period, reflecting Op. EBIT margin improvement in the core business, which was up 1,110 basis points. Sequentially, Op. EBIT was down $60 million, and Op. EBIT margins declined by 300 basis points on higher raw material and energy costs.

Packaging and Specialty Plastics business reported a net sales increase versus the year-ago period, led by local price gains in industrial & consumer packaging, and flexible food & beverage packaging applications. Volumes declined year-over-year due to lower polyethylene supply from planned maintenance turnarounds and weather-related outages. Compared to the prior quarter, the business delivered increased volume and price gains on strong demand in industrial & consumer packaging applications that were partly offset by additional weather-related outages.

Industrial Intermediates & Infrastructure segment net sales were $4.5 billion, up 47% versus the year-ago period. Local price improved 49% year-over-year with gains in both businesses and in all regions on tight supply and demand dynamics. Currency increased net sales by 2%. Despite strong demand, volumes declined 4% year-over-year due to a planned transition of a low-margin coproducer contract, weather-related outages and third-party supply constraints. On a sequential basis, the segment recorded a net sales increase of 6%, driven by volume and price gains in both businesses due to strong demand and improved supply availability.

Equity earnings for the segment were $122 million, an increase of $135 million compared to the year-ago period, driven by margin expansion at the Sadara and Kuwait joint ventures. On a sequential basis, equity earnings decreased by $22 million as the Kuwait joint ventures' margin improvement was more than offset by planned maintenance turnaround activity, as well as reduced margins at the Thai joint ventures.

Operating EBIT was $713 million, an increase of $609 million compared to the year-ago period, primarily due to continued tight supply and demand dynamics in both businesses. Op. EBIT margins were up 1,250 basis points year-over-year. Sequentially, Op. EBIT was up $65 million, and Op. EBIT margins expanded by 50 basis points on volume and price gains in both businesses.

Polyurethanes & Construction Chemicals business increased net sales compared to the year-ago period with price gains in all regions on tight supply and demand dynamics in key value chains. Volume declines year-over-year were primarily driven by a planned transition of a low-margin coproducer contract, weather-related outages and third-party supply constraints. Sequentially, the business delivered sales growth due to higher local price and volume increases from additional supply availability to meet resilient demand.

Industrial Solutions business net sales increased from the year-ago period with local price gains in all regions.

Currency increased net sales by 1% year-over-year. On a sequential basis, the segment recorded a 2% increase in sales with price gains in both businesses and in all regions. Volume declined 5% sequentially as continued consumer and industrial demand strength was more than offset by third-party supply and global logistics constraints.

Operating EBIT was $284 million, compared to $75 million in the year-ago period, as Op. EBIT margins increased 750 basis points due to strong price momentum and robust demand recovery for silicones and industrial coatings offerings. Sequentially, Op.

Sequentially, sales were down as price increases in all regions were more than offset by volume declines from planned maintenance and third-party supply and logistics constraints.

Coatings & Performance Monomers business achieved increased net sales year-over-year as higher raw material costs and tight supply and demand dynamics led to local price gains in all regions. Volumes were down versus the year-ago period as demand recovery for industrial coatings was more than offset by supply availability challenges due to weather-related outages and third-party supply and logistics constraints. Sequentially, the business delivered local price gains in all regions. Volume increased sequentially due to continued strong demand for acrylic monomers and architectural coatings and increased supply.

OUTLOOK

"We continue to see robust end-market demand that is expected to extend into 2022, coupled with near-term logistics constraints and low inventory levels across our value chains," said Fitterling. "Looking ahead, Dow is well-positioned to increase earnings, cash flow and returns as we decarbonize our footprint and achieve our 2030 and 2050 carbon emissions reduction targets. We will continue to build on our competitive advantage with growth from higher-margin, sustainability-driven, downstream solutions, and value-accretive investments to replace end-of-life assets with carbon-efficient and higher-ROIC production. Dow expects to deliver significant long-term value for shareholders as we continue to apply our balanced capital allocation approach to grow earnings while maintaining our strong operational and financial discipline."

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 (loss) per common share - diluted" excluding the after-tax impact of significant items.

Operating EBIT is defined as earnings (i.e., "Income (loss) 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 (loss) 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.
