Brookfield Business Partners Reports First Quarter 2022 Results

BBU, T.BBUC

BROOKFIELD, NEWS, May 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brookfield Business Partners (NYSE: BBUC, BBU; TSX: BBUC, BBU.UN) announced today financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022.

“We had a successful start to the year, generating strong financial performance and committing approximately $1.6 billion of equity across seven new investments,” said Cyrus Madon, CEO of Brookfield Business Partners. “We also completed the creation of our paired corporate entity, BBUC, which should support growth of our ownership base. Our focus is on closing our announced acquisitions, progressing the monetization of our interest in Westinghouse and accelerating initiatives to surface meaningful value for our business.”

Three Months Ended
March 31,
US$ millions (except per unit amounts), unaudited 2022 2021
Net income (loss) attributable to unitholders1 $ 28 $ 530
Net income (loss) per limited partnership unit2 $ 0.18 $ 3.57
Adjusted EBITDA3 $ 506 $ 387

Net income attributable to unitholders for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was $28 million ($0.18 per limited partnership unit) compared to $530 million ($3.57 per limited partnership unit) in the prior period. Prior period results included gains related to the partial sale of our graphite electrode operations.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was $506 million compared to $387 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, reflecting increased contributions from our Industrials, Infrastructure Services and Business Services segments.

Operational Update

The following table presents Adjusted EBITDA by segment:

Three Months Ended
March 31,
US$ millions, unaudited 2022 2021
Industrials $ 217 $ 172
Infrastructure Services 208 136
Business Services 114 104
Corporate and Other (33 ) (25 )
Adjusted EBITDA3 $ 506 $ 387

Our Industrials segment generated Adjusted EBITDA of $217 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to $172 million during the same period in 2021. Results benefited from the contributions of new acquisitions, partially offset by reduced contribution from our advanced energy storage operations due to overall lower battery sales volumes and our reduced ownership in graphite electrode operations. Current period results included contributions from our solar power solutions provider and engineered components manufacturer which we acquired in August 2021 and October 2021, respectively.

Our Infrastructure Services segment generated Adjusted EBITDA of $208 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to $136 million in the same period in 2021. Results benefited from higher volumes and increased activity levels in nuclear technology services and improved contribution from offshore oil services. Current period results included contribution from our modular building leasing services operations which we acquired in December 2021.

Our Business Services segment generated Adjusted EBITDA of $114 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to $104 million for the same period in 2021. Results benefited from increased contribution from our residential mortgage insurance operations and strong performance at our construction operations, partially offset by reduced contribution from our Indian non-bank financial services operation due to additional provisions recorded against its loan portfolio and from our healthcare services operation as a result of government mandated restrictions on elective surgeries in Australia.

The following table presents Adjusted EFO4 by segment:

Three Months Ended
March 31,
US$ millions, unaudited 2022 2021
Industrials $ 122 $ 421
Infrastructure Services 139 73
Business Services 80 70
Corporate and Other (31 ) (19 )

Adjusted EFO for the three months ended March 31, 2022 reflected increased contributions from our Infrastructure Services and Business Services segments, offset by reduced contribution from our Industrials segment. Corporate and Other reflects an increase in our management fee compared to prior period. Prior period results in our Industrials segment included after-tax gains of $328 million recognized on the partial sale of our investments in graphite electrode operations and public securities.

Strategic Initiatives

  • Lottery Services
    In April 2022 we completed the acquisition of Scientific Games, a global leading technology and services provider to government-sponsored lottery programs, for $5.7 billion. We funded approximately $820 million of the $2.4 billion equity investment for a 35% ownership interest, with the balance from institutional partners. A portion of our investment may be syndicated to other institutional partners.
  • Dealer Software and Technology Services
    In April 2022 we signed an agreement to acquire CDK Global Inc. ("CDK Global") for approximately $8.3 billion. CDK Global is a leading provider of mission-critical technology services and software solutions that help automotive dealers run their businesses more efficiently. The transaction will be funded with $3.5 billion of equity, of which we intend to fund approximately $500 million, with the balance funded from institutional partners.
  • Audience Measurement Services
    In March 2022 we entered into a partnership to acquire Nielsen Holdings plc ("Nielsen"), a global leader in third-party audience measurement, data and analytics across all forms of media and content. Together with institutional partners, we will invest approximately $2.65 billion by way of preferred equity, convertible into 45% of Nielsen’s common equity. Our share of the preferred equity investment is approximately $600 million. A portion of our investment may be syndicated to other institutional partners.
  • Australian Residential Mortgage Lending Services
    In March 2022 we signed an agreement to acquire La Trobe Financial ("La Trobe") for approximately $1.1 billion including a contingent payment tied to the business achieving certain performance milestones. La Trobe is a leading Australian non-bank lender and asset manager, providing an essential service to the Australian residential real estate lending market. The transaction will be funded with $765 million of equity, of which we intend to fund approximately $250 million, with the balance funded from institutional partners. A portion of our investment may be syndicated to other institutional partners.
  • Payment Processing Services
    In February 2022 we signed an agreement to acquire 60% of Magnati, a technology-enabled payment services provider in the Middle East. The transaction will be funded with $190 million of initial equity, of which we intend to invest approximately $65 million for a 20% ownership interest, with the balance funded from institutional partners.
  • Non-control Investments
    In March 2022 we agreed to subscribe for $267 million of convertible preferred shares of JPFL Films Private Limited, an India-based market-leading manufacturer of flexible plastic films. Our share of the investment is approximately $45 million, with the balance funded from institutional partners. We also provided $374 million of financing through non-convertible preferred shares, common shares and warrants to Chorus Aviation, a Canadian regional aviation and aircraft leasing services provider, to fund its growth initiatives. Our share of the investment was approximately $55 million, with the balance funded from institutional partners.
  • Brookfield Business Corporation
    On March 15, 2022, we completed the previously announced creation of Brookfield Business Corporation ("BBUC"), our paired corporate entity, through a special distribution of shares of the newly created corporation. Existing holders of Brookfield Business Partners’ limited partnership units received one class A exchangeable subordinate voting share of BBUC for every two units held. From an economic and accounting perspective, the special distribution was analogous to a unit split as it did not result in any underlying change to aggregate cash flows or net asset value except for the adjustment for the aggregate number of units/shares outstanding.
  • Unit Repurchase Program
    For the three months ended March 31, 2022 we repurchased 1,118,136 of Brookfield Business Partners L.P. units under our normal course issuer bid (NCIB).

Liquidity

We ended the quarter with approximately $3.0 billion of liquidity at the corporate level including $590 million of cash and liquid securities, $1.4 billion of availability on our credit facilities and a commitment from Brookfield Asset Management to subscribe for up to $1.0 billion of perpetual preferred equity securities.

Subsequent to quarter end, Brookfield Asset Management agreed to subscribe for an additional $500 million of Brookfield Business Partners’ 6% perpetual preferred equity securities, for a total commitment of $1.5 billion. Upon issuance, these preferred securities are redeemable at par, at the option of Brookfield Asset Management, to the extent Brookfield Business Partners completes asset sales, financings or equity issuances.

Distribution

The Board of Directors has declared a quarterly distribution in the amount of $0.0625 per unit, payable on June 30, 2022 to unitholders of record as at the close of business on May 31, 2022.

Additional Information

The Board has reviewed and approved this news release, including the summarized unaudited consolidated financial statements contained herein.

Brookfield Business Partners’ Letter to Unitholders and the Supplemental Information are available on our website https://bbu.brookfield.com under Reports & Filings.

Notes:

  1. Attributable to limited partnership unitholders, general partnership unitholders, redemption-exchange unitholders, special limited partnership unitholders and BBUC exchangeable shareholders.
  2. Net income (loss) per limited partnership unit calculated as net income (loss) attributable to limited partners divided by the average number of limited partnership units outstanding which was 76.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 (March 31, 2021: 78.8 million).
  3. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-IFRS measure of operating performance presented as net income and equity accounted income at the Partnership’s economic ownership interest in consolidated subsidiaries and equity accounted investments, respectively, excluding the impact of interest income (expense), net, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, gains (losses) on acquisition/disposition, net, transaction costs, restructuring charges, revaluation gains or losses, impairment expense, and other income (expense), net. The Partnership’s economic ownership interest in consolidated subsidiaries and equity accounted investments excludes amounts attributable to non-controlling interests consistent with how the Partnership determines net income attributable to non-controlling interests in its IFRS consolidated statement of operating results. The Partnership believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides a comprehensive understanding of the ability of its businesses to generate recurring earnings which allows users to better understand and evaluate the underlying financial performance of the Partnership’s operations and excludes items that the Partnership believes do not directly relate to revenue earning activities and are not normal, recurring items necessary for business operations. Please refer to the reconciliation of net income to Adjusted EBITDA included elsewhere in this release.
  4. Adjusted EFO is the Partnership’s segment measure of profit or loss and is presented as net income and equity accounted income at the Partnership’s economic ownership interest in consolidated subsidiaries and equity accounted investments, respectively, excluding the impact of depreciation and amortization, deferred income taxes, transaction costs, restructuring charges, revaluation gains or losses, impairment expense, and other income or expense items. The Partnership’s economic ownership interest in consolidated subsidiaries and equity accounted investments excludes amounts attributable to non-controlling interests consistent with how the Partnership determines net income attributable to non-controlling interests in its IFRS consolidated statement of operating results. In order to provide additional insight regarding the Partnership’s operating performance over the lifecycle of an investment, Adjusted EFO includes realized disposition gains or losses, recorded in net income, other comprehensive income, or directly in equity, such as ownership changes. Adjusted EFO allows the Partnership to evaluate its segments on the basis of return on invested capital generated by its operations and allows the Partnership to evaluate the performance of its segments on a levered basis.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-looking Statements and Information

Note: This news release contains “forward-looking information” within the meaning of Canadian provincial securities laws and “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of applicable Canadian and U.S. securities laws. Forward-looking statements include statements that are predictive in nature, depend upon or refer to future events or conditions, include statements regarding the operations, business, financial condition, expected financial results, performance, prospects, opportunities, priorities, targets, goals, ongoing objectives, strategies and outlook of Brookfield Business Partners, as well as the outlook for North American and international economies for the current fiscal year and subsequent periods, and include words such as “expects,” “anticipates,” “plans,” “believes,” “estimates,” “seeks,” “intends,” “targets,” “projects,” “forecasts” or negative versions thereof and other similar expressions, or future or conditional verbs such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “would” and “could.”

Although we believe that our anticipated future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements and information are based upon reasonable assumptions and expectations, the reader should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements and information because they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which are beyond our control, which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of Brookfield Business Partners to differ materially from anticipated future results, performance or achievement expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements and information.

Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated or implied by forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to: the impact or unanticipated impact of general economic, political and market factors in the countries in which we do business; including as a result of the ongoing novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic, including any SARS-CoV-2 variants (collectively, “COVID-19”); the behavior of financial markets, including fluctuations in interest and foreign exchange rates; global equity and capital markets and the availability of equity and debt financing and refinancing within these markets; strategic actions including dispositions; the ability to complete and effectively integrate acquisitions into existing operations and the ability to attain expected benefits; changes in accounting policies and methods used to report financial condition (including uncertainties associated with critical accounting assumptions and estimates); the ability to appropriately manage human capital; the effect of applying future accounting changes; business competition; operational and reputational risks; technological change; changes in government regulation and legislation within the countries in which we operate; governmental investigations; litigation; changes in tax laws; ability to collect amounts owed; catastrophic events, such as earthquakes; hurricanes and pandemics/epidemics; the possible impact of international conflicts, wars and related developments including Russia’s military operation in Ukraine, terrorist acts and cyber terrorism; and other risks and factors detailed from time to time in our documents filed with the securities regulators in Canada and the United States including in the “Risks Factors” section included in our Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in our Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2021 (“2021 Annual Report”).

In addition, our future results may be impacted by various government mandated economic restrictions resulting from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the related global reduction in commerce and travel and substantial volatility in stock markets worldwide, which may negatively impact our revenues, affect our ability to identify and complete future transactions, impact our liquidity position and result in a decrease of cash flows and impairment losses and/or revaluations on our investments and assets, and therefore we may be unable to achieve our expected returns. See “Risks Associated with the COVID-19 Pandemic” in the “Risks Factors” section included in our 2021 Annual Report.

We caution that the foregoing list of important factors that may affect future results is not exhaustive. When relying on our forward-looking statements and information, investors and others should carefully consider the foregoing factors and other uncertainties and potential events. Except as required by law, Brookfield Business Partners undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements or information, whether written or oral, that may be as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Cautionary Statement Regarding the Use of Non-IFRS Measures

This news release contains references to Non-IFRS Measures. Adjusted EBITDA is not a generally accepted accounting measure under IFRS and therefore may differ from definitions used by other entities. We believe this measure is a useful supplemental measure that may assist investors in assessing the financial performance of Brookfield Business Partners and its subsidiaries. However, Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, analysis of our financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS.

References to Brookfield Business Partners are to Brookfield Business Partners L.P. together with its subsidiaries, controlled affiliates and operating entities. Brookfield Business Partners’ results include publicly held limited partnership units, redemption-exchange units, general partnership units, BBUC exchangeable shares and special limited partnership units. More detailed information on certain references made in this news release will be available in our Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in our interim report for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022 furnished on Form 6-K.
