“We are off to a great start and I am very pleased with our first quarter performance. We returned to growth and had strong execution in all segments. Our results exceeded the guidance we provided in February. Margins expanded in each segment and we managed price/cost well," said Beth Wozniak, nVent’s chief executive officer.

"We delivered strong cash flow well ahead of the prior year. Our teams have performed well to meet the increase in customer demand and ensure supply chain resiliency despite external challenges. We are excited about our recent acquisition of Vynckier, which further expands our Enclosures portfolio for Infrastructure growth. I am confident we are well positioned with improving demand trends and the electrification of everything to grow globally with new customers, new products, strategic channel relationships and with our digital investments.”

First quarter sales of $549 million were up 5 percent relative to the first quarter 2020 and increased 2 percent organically, which excludes the impact from currency fluctuations and acquisitions. First quarter 2021 earnings per diluted share (“EPS”) were $0.39, up 255 percent, while on an adjusted basis, the company had EPS of $0.43, up 26 percent. Segment income, adjusted net income, free cash flow and adjusted EPS are described in the attached schedules.

First quarter 2021 operating income was $80 million compared to $60 million in the first quarter of 2020. On an adjusted basis, segment income was $97 million versus $82 million in the first quarter of 2020.
