PARIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Regulatory News:

Technip Energies (Paris:TE) (ISIN:NL0014559478) (the “Company”), a leading Engineering & Technology company for the Energy Transition, today announces its first half unaudited 2021 financial results.

Arnaud Pieton, CEO of Technip Energies, on H1 2021 results and FY 2021 outlook:

We are committed to delivering consistent and predictable operational and financial performance. Buoyed by double digit year-over-year growth in the second quarter, our first half revenue performance reinforces our revenue outlook for the full-year. Operational execution across our portfolio of projects continues to be strong and we have made good progress in reducing indirect costs. This is evidenced by first half margins exceeding the top-end of the guided range for 2021 – as a result, we are raising full year margin guidance.”

Year to date Order Intake of €7.9 billion has largely consisted of Energy Transition related work, including LNG. This has driven a substantial improvement in backlog and provides us with excellent, multi-year visibility. The new projects pipeline continues to be strong, giving us potential for selective additions to our backlog in the coming quarters. We see continued book-to-bill momentum in Technology, Products & Services – consistent with our strategy to deliver growth from this segment.”

We are shaping our future across the Energy Transition – both Decarbonization and Carbon-free solutions. We launched Blue H2 by T.EN™, a leading suite of cost-efficient, low-carbon hydrogen solutions – with strong customer interest. In addition, we secured promising work in the related areas of blue ammonia and green hydrogen. We strengthened our offshore wind positioning with Inocean floater technology and the creation of a dedicated business unit. Finally, in Sustainable Chemistry, we received notable technology and services awards in the growing domain of sustainable aviation fuel.”

ESG enthusiasm is resonating throughout the Company with significant engagement with our people and external stakeholders to frame our priorities. This represents a key milestone in our sustainability roadmap, to be delivered early 2022”.

Operational and financial review

Backlog, Order Intake and Backlog Scheduling

Adjusted Order Intake for H1 2021 of €7,863.4million (Q2 2021: €1,392.7 million), equating to a book-to-bill of 2.4, was mostly driven by a large petrochemical contract by Indian Oil Corporation and two contracts for Neste for development of its Rotterdam Renewables Production Platform in the second quarter, as well as the major award for the Qatar North Field Expansion in the first quarter. Also, in the second quarter, the Company benefited from additional opportunities materializing on existing projects. Trailing 12-months book-to-bill was 1.8.

Adjusted backlog increased 32% year-on-year to €17,473.4 million, equivalent to 2.9x 2020 Adjusted Revenue.

H1 2021 Adjusted Revenue increased year-on-year by 7% to €2.6 billion. The continued ramp-up of Arctic LNG 2, combined with progress on FLNG work and the initial contributions from recently awarded LNG projects, was partially offset by a reduction in North American and Middle East downstream projects.

H1 2021 Adjusted Recurring EBIT decreased year-on-year by 8% to €167.5 million. Adjusted Recurring EBIT margin declined by 100 basis points to 6.4% largely due to project mix and early project phasing, as well as corporate costs that have been more fully allocated to the operating segment, while the prior year period benefited from projects in the completion phase. A reduction in indirect cost partially offset the decline in margins.

Corporate and Other items

Corporate costs in the first half, excluding non-recurring items, were €17.6 million, benefiting from a fuller allocation to the operating segments. This compares to €61.6 million in the prior year period. H1 2020 combined statement of income was also impacted by foreign exchange impact allocated to Technip Energies. Foreign exchange for H1 2021 was a negative impact of €1.3 million.

Net financial expense was €12 million, impacted by the mark-to-market valuation of investments in traded securities and, to a lesser extent, higher interest expense associated with the bridge facility, partially offset by interest income from cash on deposit.

Effective tax rate for the first half was 33.7%.

Non-recurring expenses in the first half amounted to €30.6 million, primarily relating to separation costs, which were largely incurred in the first quarter. H1 2020 had a positive contribution from non-recurring items mainly resulting from a favourable €102.9 million litigation settlement, partially offset by direct COVID-19 related expenses of €26 million.

Depreciation and amortization expense was €56.1 million, of which €40.3 million is related to IFRS16.

Adjusted net cash at June 30, 2021 was €2.5 billion. This compares to Adjusted net cash at December 31, 2020, after the impact of the Separation and Distribution Agreement, of €2.2 billion.

Total invested equity at June 30, 2021 was €1.3 billion in Adjusted IFRS. This compares to total invested equity at December 31, 2020 of €1.2 billion, after giving effect to the provisions of the Separation and Distribution Agreement. The Separation and Distribution Agreement was detailed in section 3, Balance Sheet information, of Technip Energies “Update on FY 2020 Financial Results” released on February 26, 2021.

Adjusted Operating cash flow for the first half reached of €354.6 million, benefiting from a strong operational performance and working capital inflows associated with new project advances and milestone payments.

With limited capital expenditure of €15.4 million, free cash flow generation was €339.2 million in the first half.

Liquidity and credit rating information

Total liquidity of €3.8 billion at June 30, 2021 comprised of €3.2 billion of cash and €750 million of liquidity provided by the Company’s undrawn revolving credit facility, which is available for general use and serves as a backstop for the Company’s commercial paper program, offset by €80 million of outstanding commercial paper.

On May 20, 2021, the Company announced the successful pricing of its inaugural offering of €600,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 1.125% senior unsecured notes due 2028 (the “Notes”). The offering was more than 3x oversubscribed among a large European investor base.
