WHIRLPOOL CORPORATION REPORTS RESILIENT SECOND-QUARTER 2020 RESULTS, DESPITE IMPACT OF COVID-19 CRISIS
Delivered positive GAAP and ongoing (non-GAAP) earnings per diluted share(1) of $0.55 and $2.15, respectively, despite significant COVID-19 related disruptions.
Very strong North America performance, expanding EBIT margins(3) 20 basis points to 12.6%.
Significant demand recovery across all regions in June, resulting in year-over-year global margin expansion in the month on a GAAP and ongoing basis.
COVID-19 response plan to protect margins and enhance liquidity in 2020 is on track, resulting in cost takeout (including raw material savings) of approximately $100M in Q2 and a cash balance of $2.5B as of June 30, 2020.
Cash used in operating activities and free cash flow(4) improvement of $76M and $124M, respectively, driven by disciplined working capital management.
BENTON HARBOR, Mich., July 22, 2020 - Whirlpool Corporation (NYSE: WHR) today reported financial results for the second-quarter of 2020.
 
 
“Delivering a solid Q2 performance despite the far reaching impact of COVID-19 on our business is the result of the decisive actions we took throughout the quarter and ultimately demonstrates the resilience of our business model,” said Marc Bitzer, chairman and chief executive officer of Whirlpool Corporation. “While we recognize the uncertainty and volatility which lies ahead of us, we are proud of the way in which we managed through the most difficult quarter of this global crisis.”

QUARTERLY HIGHLIGHTS
Q2 GAAP net earnings margin was 0.9 percent, compared to 1.3 percent in the same prior-year period. Prior-year results were unfavorably impacted by a $79 million loss primarily related to the sale of our South Africa business, partially offset by a $53 million gain related to a Brazil indirect tax credit and certain favorable tax items.
Ongoing EBIT margin(2) was 5.2 percent, compared to 7.0 percent in the same prior-year period as COVID-19 related disruptions of nearly 300 basis points were mitigated by significant and decisive cost actions.
Strong liquidity position with a cash balance of $2.5 billion as of June 30, 2020 and approximately $2.5 billion available under committed credit facilities.
 
 
"Our strong second-quarter results are a testament to our operational strength and the perseverance of our global team,” said Jim Peters, chief financial officer of Whirlpool Corporation. “In the quarter, we delivered solid cost takeout globally and strong cash flow improvement through disciplined working capital management. The actions we took earlier this year to sustain our margins and protect our liquidity strengthened our ability to succeed through the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and have prepared us to withstand current economic uncertainty.”

2020 PERSPECTIVE
While the full impact of COVID-19 on future business results remains uncertain, the Company is updating its perspective on 2020:
Expects full-year 2020 net sales decline of approximately 10 percent to 15 percent (previously 13 percent to 18 percent) and organic net sales(5) decline of 7 percent to 12 percent (previously 10 percent to 15 percent)
Our COVID-19 response plan is on track to deliver over $500 million in cost takeout (including raw materials savings) in 2020 through the following actions:
Capturing raw material deflation opportunities
Significantly reducing structural and discretionary costs
Continue to effectively and efficiently manage working capital
Adjust supply chain and labor levels to match demand environment

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION - CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
(Millions of dollars except per share data)
(Unaudited)

We supplement the reporting of our financial information determined under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) with certain non-GAAP financial measures, some of which we refer to as "ongoing" measures, including earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT), EBIT margin, ongoing EBIT, ongoing EBIT margin, ongoing earnings per diluted share, organic net sales, adjusted effective tax rate, sales excluding currency and free cash flow. Ongoing measures exclude items that may not be indicative of, or are unrelated to, results from our ongoing operations and provide a better baseline for analyzing trends in our underlying businesses. Sales excluding foreign currency is calculated by translating the current period net sales, in functional currency, to U.S. dollars using the prior-year period’s exchange rate compared to the prior-year period net sales. Management believes that sales excluding foreign currency provides stockholders with a clearer basis to assess our results over time, excluding the impact of exchange rate fluctuations. Management believes that organic net sales provides stockholders with a clearer basis to assess our results over time, excluding the impact of exchange rate fluctuations and the Embraco divestiture. Management believes that adjusted tax rate provides investors with a meaningful, consistent comparison of the Company's effective tax rate, excluding the pre-tax income and tax effect of certain unique items. Management believes that free cash flow provides investors and stockholders with a relevant measure of liquidity and a useful basis for assessing the company's ability to fund its activities and obligations.The Company provides free cash flow related metrics, such as free cash flow as a percentage of net sales, as long-term management goals, not an element of its annual financial guidance, and as such does not provide a reconciliation of free cash flow to cash provided by (used in) operating activities, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, for these long-term goal metrics. Whirlpool does not provide a Non-GAAP reconciliation for its other forward-looking long-term value creation and other goals, such as organic net sales, EBIT, and gross debt/EBITDA, as such reconciliation would rely on market factors and certain other conditions and assumptions that are outside of the company’s control. We believe that these non-GAAP measures provide meaningful information to assist investors and stockholders in understanding our financial results and assessing our prospects for future performance, and reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of our operations that, when viewed with our GAAP financial measures, provide a more complete understanding of our business. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies’ non-GAAP financial measures having the same or similar names. These ongoing financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for reported net earnings available to Whirlpool per diluted share, net earnings, net earnings available to Whirlpool, net earnings margin, net sales, effective tax rate and cash provided by (used in) operating activities, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. We also disclose segment EBIT and ongoing segment EBIT as important financial metrics used by the Company's Chief Operating Decision Maker to evaluate performance and allocate resources in accordance with ASC 280 - Segment Reporting. GAAP net earnings available to Whirlpool per diluted share and ongoing earnings per diluted share are presented net of tax, while individual adjustments in each reconciliation are presented on a pre-tax basis; the income tax impact line item aggregates the tax impact for these adjustments. The tax impact of individual line item adjustments may not foot precisely to the aggregate income tax impact amount, as each line item adjustment may include non-taxable components. Historical quarterly earnings per share amounts are presented based on a normalized tax rate adjustment to reconcile quarterly tax rates to full-year tax rate expectations. We strongly encourage investors and stockholders to review our financial statements and publicly-filed reports in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure.

Second-Quarter 2020 Ongoing Earnings Before Interest and Taxes and Ongoing Earnings per Diluted Share

The reconciliation provided below reconciles the non-GAAP financial measures ongoing earnings before interest and taxes and ongoing earnings per diluted share, with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, net earnings available to Whirlpool and net earnings per diluted share available to Whirlpool, for the three months ended June 30, 2020. Net earnings margin is calculated by dividing net earnings available to Whirlpool by net sales. Ongoing EBIT margin is calculated by dividing ongoing EBIT by net sales. EBIT margin is calculated by dividing EBIT by net sales. The earnings per diluted share GAAP measure and ongoing measure are presented net of tax, while each adjustment is presented on a pre-tax basis. Our second-quarter GAAP tax rate was 41.9%. The aggregate income tax impact of the taxable components of each adjustment is presented in the income tax impact line item at our second-quarter adjusted tax rate (non-GAAP) of 22.5%.

Net earnings margin is calculated by dividing net earnings available to Whirlpool by net sales. Ongoing EBIT margin is calculated by dividing ongoing EBIT by net sales. EBIT margin is calculated by dividing EBIT by net sales. The earnings per diluted share GAAP measure and ongoing measure are presented net of tax, while each adjustment is presented on a pre-tax basis. Our second-quarter GAAP tax rate was 64.5%.

Footnotes:
a.
RESTRUCTURING COSTS - In 2019, these costs are primarily related to actions that right-size our EMEA business and certain other unique restructuring events, including restructuring of the Naples, Italy manufacturing plant. In 2020, these costs are primarily related to actions that right-size and reduce the fixed cost structure of our North America business and other centralized functions, attributable primarily to the current macroeconomic uncertainties caused by COVID-19.
b.
NORMALIZED TAX RATE ADJUSTMENT - During the second quarter of 2020, the Company calculated ongoing earnings per share using an adjusted tax rate of 22.5%, to reconcile to our anticipated full-year effective tax rate between 20% and 25%. During the second quarter of 2019, the Company calculated ongoing earnings per share using an adjusted tax rate of 17.5%, to reconcile to our anticipated full-year 2019 effective tax rate between 15% and 20%, which excludes the gain on sales of the Embraco compressor business, the Brazil indirect tax credit, and the sale and disposal of businesses.
c.
BRAZIL INDIRECT TAX CREDIT - During the first half of 2019, the Company received favorable, non-appealable decisions related to the recovery of certain taxes previously paid over gross sales. As a result, the Company recorded a gain in interest and sundry (income) expense during the first and second quarter of 2019 in the amount of $127 million and $53 million, respectively, in connection with these decisions.
d.
DIVESTITURE RELATED TRANSITION COSTS - During the first and second quarter of 2019, the Company recognized transition costs of approximately $6 million and $11 million, respectively, associated with the sale of its Embraco compressor business.
e.
LOSS ON DISPOSAL OF BUSINESSES - During the second quarter of 2019, the Company entered into an agreement to sell its South Africa operations. As a result, the Company recorded a charge of $35 million for the write-down of the assets of the disposal group to fair value and $33 million of cumulative foreign currency translation adjustments included in the carrying amount of the disposal group to calculate the impairment. The Company also incurred charges of approximately $11 million, primarily inventory liquidation costs, related to the exit of our domestic sales operations in Turkey. Total charges recorded in the second quarter of 2019 were approximately $79 million.
f.
PRODUCT WARRANTY AND LIABILITY EXPENSE - In September 2015, the Company recorded a liability related to a corrective action affecting certain legacy Indesit products. During the second quarter of 2019, the Company incurred approximately $12 million of additional product warranty expense related to our previously disclosed legacy Indesit dryer corrective action campaign in the UK.
