H.B. Fuller reports first quarter fiscal 2022 results

 Friday, April 1, 2022

H.B. Fuller Company reported financial results for its first quarter. Significant revenue and earnings growth versus the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was driven by outstanding operational execution, strong volume growth and pricing gains.

Summary of First Quarter 2022 Results:

Net revenue of $857 million increased 18% compared with the first quarter of 2021. Foreign currency exchange rates unfavorably impacted revenue by 3.7%. Acquisitions favorably impacted revenue by 0.9%. Organic revenue increased 20.8% versus last year with 6.1% from volume growth and 14.7% from pricing. All three GBUs delivered mid-teens percentage or higher organic revenue growth compared with the prior year.

“H.B. Fuller had a strong start to fiscal 2022, with 21% growth in organic revenues and adjusted EPS. We also delivered adjusted EBITDA growth of 12% which exceeded our guidance for the quarter,” said Jim Owens, H.B. Fuller president and chief executive officer. “Our momentum was driven by volume growth and strong pricing performance in all three of our global business units. Our remarkable first-quarter results are a direct result of executing our multi-year strategy to strengthen our operational agility and grow our portfolio of highly specialized solutions to solve customers’ toughest adhesion problems.

Owens continued, “The unexpected and tragic events in Ukraine have all of us focused on the safety of people in the region. From an H.B. Fuller business perspective, Russia and Ukraine make up less than one percent of our annual revenue, however, these events have dramatically increased the level of supply chain uncertainty and accelerated inflationary pressures in an already fragile environment. We have moved quickly to take additional actions to secure global supply and to strategically price our products aligned with the value we deliver. H.B. Fuller’s solutions are critical for our customers to meet high demand for durable goods, electronics, packaged products, transportation, solar panels, hygiene and medical products, building construction and maintenance, and we remain confident in our ability to deliver strong results in this turbulent environment. We have increased our outlook for fiscal 2022 to reflect the contributions from our recent acquisitions of Apollo and Fourny and our strong performance in the first quarter. As we continue to execute our strategy, we are well-positioned to drive sustainable shareholder value in 2022 and in the years ahead.”
