"We delivered another year of strong performance in 2021 through our unwavering focus on our purpose-driven strategy and despite unprecedented inflationary and supply chain challenges," said Dave Regnery, chair and CEO of Trane Technologies. "Our global teams delivered record bookings, revenue, operating margins and earnings per share. Our strong free cash flow enabled ongoing investment in business innovation, decarbonization and expanded plant capacity, while returning $1.7 billion to shareholders. We are entering 2022 with record backlog of $5.4 billion, up 88 percent from the prior year.

"We continue to aggressively manage global inflationary and supply chain challenges. With healthy end markets, record customer demand for sustainable solutions and historic levels of backlog, we are well positioned to deliver another strong year of financial performance in 2022 and differentiated profitable growth and shareholder returns over the long term.”

Highlights from Fourth-Quarter 2021 (all comparisons against fourth-quarter 2020 unless otherwise noted)

  • Robust demand drove record fourth-quarter revenue, strong operating income and EPS growth.
  • Enterprise reported bookings and revenues were up 28 percent and 12 percent, respectively. Organic bookings and revenues were up 27 percent and 11 percent, respectively, driven by growth in all segments.
  • Enterprise reported revenue growth included approximately 2 percentage points from acquisitions offset by approximately 1 percentage point of foreign exchange impact.
  • GAAP operating margin was flat, adjusted operating margin was up 10 basis points, and adjusted EBITDA margin was up 30 basis points. Volume growth and positive price versus cost was offset by negative impacts on productivity versus other inflation, arising from supply chain, freight and logistics challenges.

*Q4 Non-GAAP measures definitions

Organic revenue is defined as GAAP net revenues adjusted for the impact of currency and acquisitions. Organic bookings is defined as reported orders in the current period adjusted for the impact of currency and acquisitions.

Adjusted operating income in 2021 and 2020 is defined as GAAP operating income plus restructuring costs and transformation costs. Please refer to the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures on tables 2, 3 and 4 of the news release.

Adjusted operating margin is defined as the ratio of adjusted operating income divided by net revenues.

Operating leverage is defined as the ratio of the change in adjusted operating income for the current period (e.g. Q4 2021) less the prior period (e.g. Q4 2020), divided by the change in net revenues for the current period less the prior period.

Adjusted earnings from continuing operations attributable to Trane Technologies plc (Adjusted net earnings) in 2021 is defined as GAAP earnings from continuing operations attributable to Trane Technologies plc plus restructuring costs and transformation costs less the gain on release of a pension indemnification liability, net of tax impacts. Adjusted net earnings in 2020 is defined as GAAP earnings from continuing operations attributable to Trane Technologies plc plus restructuring costs and transformation costs less the gain on M&A transaction, net of tax impacts plus separation-related tax costs. Please refer to the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures on tables 2 and 3 of the news release.

Adjusted continuing EPS in 2021 is defined as GAAP continuing EPS plus restructuring costs and transformation costs less the gain on release of a pension indemnification liability, net of tax impacts. Adjusted continuing EPS in 2020 is defined as GAAP continuing EPS plus restructuring costs and transformation costs less the gain on M&A transaction, net of tax impacts plus separation-related tax costs. Please refer to the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures on tables 2 and 3 of the news release.

Adjusted EBITDA in 2021 is defined as adjusted operating income plus depreciation and amortization expense plus or minus other income / (expense), net less the gain on release of a pension indemnification liability. Adjusted EBITDA in 2020 is defined as adjusted operating income plus depreciation and amortization expense plus or minus other income / (expense), net less the gain on M&A transaction. Please refer to the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures on table 4 of the news release.

Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as the ratio of adjusted EBITDA divided by net revenues.

Free cash flow in 2021 and 2020 is defined as net cash provided by (used in) continuing operating activities, less capital expenditures, plus cash payments for restructuring costs and transformation costs. Please refer to the free cash flow reconciliation on table 10 of the news release.

Working capital measures a firm’s operating liquidity position and its overall effectiveness in managing the enterprise's current accounts.

  • Working capital is calculated by adding net accounts and notes receivables and inventories and subtracting total current liabilities that exclude short-term debt, dividend payables and income tax payables.
  • Working capital as a percent of revenue is calculated by dividing the working capital balance (e.g. as of December 31) by the annualized revenue for the period (e.g. reported revenues for the three months ended December 31 multiplied by 4 to annualize for a full year).

Adjusted effective tax rate for 2021 is defined as the ratio of income tax provision less the net tax effect of adjustments for restructuring costs, transformation costs and the gain on release of a pension indemnification liability divided by earnings from continuing operations before income taxes plus restructuring costs and transformation costs less the gain on release of a pension indemnification liability. Adjusted effective tax rate for 2020 is defined as the ratio of income tax provision less the net tax effect of adjustments for restructuring costs, transformation costs and the gain on M&A transaction less separation-related tax costs divided by earnings from continuing operations before income taxes plus restructuring costs and transformation costs less the gain on M&A transaction. This measure allows for a direct comparison of the effective tax rate between periods.

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP). The following schedules provide non-GAAP financial information and a quantitative reconciliation of the difference between the non-GAAP financial measures and the financial measures calculated and reported in accordance with GAAP.

The non-GAAP financial measures should be considered supplemental to, not a substitute for or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. They have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operations of our businesses as determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these measures may not be comparable to non-GAAP financial measures reported by other companies.

We believe the non-GAAP financial information provides important supplemental information to both management and investors regarding financial and business trends used in assessing our financial condition and results of operations.

Non-GAAP financial measures assist investors with analyzing our business results as well as with predicting future performance. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are also reviewed by management in order to evaluate the financial performance of each segment. Presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures helps investors and management to assess the operating performance of the Company.

As a result, one should not consider these measures in isolation or as a substitute for our results reported under GAAP. We compensate for these limitations by analyzing results on a GAAP basis as well as a non-GAAP basis, prominently disclosing GAAP results and providing reconciliations from GAAP results to non-GAAP results.

(a) Other income/(expense), net within 2020 Americas excludes $2.4M gain on M&A transaction and within 2021 Corporate includes the gain on release of a pension indemnification liability of $12.8M

(b) Other within Corporate includes Transformation costs of $3.9M in 2021 and Transformation costs of $1.5M in 2020

Management measures operating performance based on net earnings excluding interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, restructuring, unallocated corporate expenses and discontinued operations (Segment Adjusted EBITDA). Segment Adjusted EBITDA is not defined under GAAP and may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures used by other companies and should not be considered a substitute for net earnings or other results reported in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes Segment Adjusted EBITDA provides the most relevant measure of profitability as well as earnings power and the ability to generate cash. This measure is a useful financial metric to assess the Company's operating performance from period to period by excluding certain items that it believes are not representative of its core business and the Company uses this measure for business planning purposes.
