Management Discussion

Tom Ferguson, President and Chief Executive Officer of AZZ, commented, “Throughout fiscal year 2021, the COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted our operations and financial results. Despite the extraordinary circumstances, the safety and well-being of our employees and continued support of our customers remained top priorities. We were able to generate sales of $838.9 million and net income of $39.6 million, or $1.52 per diluted share, on a reported basis, and achieve our 34th consecutive year of profitability. Our consolidated bookings for the year decreased 19.3% to $785.3 million while our backlog decreased 23.7% to $186.1 million, primarily due to both the pandemic as well as the successful completion of multiple large multi-year international electrical projects for which revenue was recognized in fiscal year 2021. We continued our long history of strong cash flows by generating net cash provided by operating activities of $92.0 million, a decrease of 35.3% compared to prior year. Reported EPS of $1.52 includes pre-tax charges of $20.0 million for impairment and restructuring and the loss on the disposal of the Galvabar and SMS businesses during the year. Excluding these charges, adjusted net income was $55.0 million, down 22.8% compared to prior year adjusted net income of $71.2 million. Adjusted EPS was $2.11, down 22.1% compared to $2.71 as adjusted for the prior year, on a diluted basis.
