Fourth-quarter 2020 net revenues increased 12% to $217 million, compared with $193 million in the fourth-quarter a year ago. Net loss attributable to Sotera Health (“net loss”) was $44 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $28 million, or $0.12 per diluted share in the fourth-quarter 2019. Fourth-quarter 2020 net loss included a $44 million charge related to the previously announced paydown of $1,111 million of debt with proceeds from the Company’s initial public offering, and fourth-quarter 2019 net loss included a $30 million charge related to the refinancing of debt. Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth-quarter 2020 increased by 20% to $113 million over the prior-year quarter. Fourth-quarter 2020 Adjusted earnings per diluted share (“Adjusted EPS”) was $0.09, an increase of $0.04 per diluted share, compared to the fourth-quarter 2019. Please refer to the section “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” provided later in this release.

For full-year 2020, net revenues increased 5% to $818 million, compared with $778 million for 2019. Full-year 2020 net loss was $39 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $21 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, for 2019. Full-year 2020 and 2019 net losses included the $44 million and $30 million charges referenced above. Full-year 2020 Adjusted EBITDA increased nearly 11% to $420 million, compared to 2019. Adjusted EPS was $0.42 in 2020, a decrease of 2% over 2019 as interest expense increased by approximately $58M for full-year 2020. Please refer to the section “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” provided later in this release.

“Our fourth-quarter and full-year 2020 results demonstrate the resilience of our business model and ability of our company to perform in a rapidly shifting environment,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Michael B. Petras, Jr. “Our three businesses – Sterigenics, Nordion and Nelson Labs – successfully navigated a global pandemic, pivoting to meet increased demand for products and services critical to protecting against the coronavirus, while ensuring continuity and quality of service for our broad-spectrum of healthcare customers. Our focus has been, and continues to be, supporting our Sotera Health global team members, providing a healthy and safe work environment and additional support and flexibility as needed.”

Petras continued, “Despite the external challenges, we delivered double-digit Adjusted EBITDA growth, expanded margins, continued to make necessary infrastructure enhancements, completed the acquisition of Iotron and executed a highly successful IPO. I am tremendously proud of, and grateful to, the entire Sotera Health team for their dedication and professionalism during this important time for the company. We look forward to building on our momentum as 2021 proceeds.”

Fourth-Quarter and Full-Year 2020 Review by Business Segment

Sterigenics

For fourth-quarter 2020, net revenues from Sterigenics were $135 million, an increase of 11% compared to the fourth-quarter a year ago. Segment income was $74 million, an increase of more than 14%.

For full-year 2020, Sterigenics net revenues were $499 million, an increase of 6% compared to 2019. Segment income increased 9% to $267 million.

Revenue and segment income growth for both the fourth-quarter and full-year 2020 were driven by enhanced utilization of existing capacity, favorable pricing, and the acquisition of Iotron.

Nordion

For fourth-quarter 2020, net revenues from Nordion were $29 million, an increase of 18%, compared to the fourth-quarter a year ago. Segment income increased nearly 30% to $16 million. The increases in both revenue and segment income were driven by favorable pricing and harvest schedules for industrial-use Co-60, which often vary quarter to quarter. Segment income also benefited from favorable pricing and Co-60 mix.

For full-year 2020, net revenues from Nordion were $115 million, a decline of 1% compared to 2019. The slight decline in sales for the year was driven by lower volumes of medical-use Co-60 impacted by COVID-19. Segment income increased by more than 7% to $67 million, driven by favorable pricing and Co-60 mix.

Nelson Labs

For fourth-quarter 2020, net revenues from Nelson Labs were $53 million, an increase of more than 11% compared to the fourth-quarter a year ago. Segment income increased more than 30% to $23 million.

For full-year 2020, net revenues from Nelson Labs were $205 million, an increase of more than 7% compared to 2019. Segment income increased 19% to $86 million.

Revenue and segment income growth for both the fourth-quarter and full-year 2020 were driven by increased demand for testing related to personal protective equipment, partially offset by a reduction in other lab testing volumes.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of December 31, 2020, Sotera Health had $1,861 million in total debt, and $102 million in cash and cash equivalents, compared to $2,848 million in total debt and $63 million in cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2019. No material debt balances currently outstanding mature until 2026. Sotera Health’s net leverage ratio as of December 31, 2020 was 4.3x, compared to 7.5x at December 31, 2019. Please refer to the section “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” provided later in this release.

Full-Year 2021 Outlook

Today, Sotera Health is providing its full-year 2021 outlook:

  • Net revenues in the range of $890 million to $920 million, representing growth of approximately 9% to 12%, compared to the prior year,
  • Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $465 million to $485 million, representing growth of approximately 11% to 16%, compared to the prior year,
  • Tax rate applicable to Adjusted Net Income of approximately 28%,
  • Adjusted EPS in the range of $0.78 to $0.86,
  • A fully diluted share count in the range of 281 million to 283 million shares on a weighted-average basis,
  • Capital expenditures in the range of $100 million to $110 million, and
  • Net leverage reduction of approximately ¾ of a turn.

The guidance provided above contains a number of assumptions, including, among others, the company’s current expectations regarding the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic including the rate of recoveries of elective procedures and new product development testing, and that exchange rates remain constant for the full year 2021.

The company does not provide a reconciliation of the forward-looking Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted EPS guidance to the most directly comparable GAAP measure, as this cannot be done without unreasonable effort due to the variability and low visibility with respect to certain items, including, among others, uncertainties caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic, changes to the regulatory landscape, restructuring items and certain fair value measurements, all of which are potential adjustments for future earnings. The variability of these items could have a potentially unpredictable, and a potentially significant, impact on our future GAAP results.

The guidance provided above is based on current plans and expectations and is subject to a number of known and unknown certainties and risks, including those set forth below under “Forward-Looking Statements.”

Recent Accomplishments

  • Closing of initial public offering in November 2020.
  • Paydown of $1,111 million of debt and expansion of Revolving Credit Facility in November and December 2020, respectively.
  • Successful repricing of First Lien Term Loan facility in January 2021.

Forward-Looking Statements

This release contains forward-looking statements that reflect management’s expectations about future events and the Company’s operating plans and performance and speak only as of the date hereof. You can identify these forward-looking statements by the use of forward-looking words such as “will,” “may,” “plan,” “estimate,” “project,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “expect,” “intend,” “should,” “would,” “could,” “target,” “goal,” “continue to,” “positioned to,” “are confident” or the negative version of those words or other comparable words. Any forward-looking statements contained in this release are based upon our historical performance and on our current plans, estimates and expectations in light of information currently available to us. The inclusion of this forward-looking information should not be regarded as a representation by us that the future plans, estimates or expectations contemplated by us will be achieved. These forward-looking statements are subject to various risks, uncertainties and assumptions relating to our operations, financial results, financial condition, business, prospects, growth strategy and liquidity. These risks and uncertainties include, without limitation, any disruption in the availability or supply of ethylene oxide (EO) or Cobalt-60; changes in industry trends, environmental, health and safety regulations or preferences; the impact of current and future legal proceedings and liability claims, including litigation related to purported exposure to emissions of EO from our facilities in Illinois, Georgia and New Mexico and the possibility that other claims will be made in the future relating to these or other facilities; our ability to increase capacity at existing facilities, renew leases for our facilities and build new facilities in a timely and cost-effective manner; the risks of doing business internationally; and any inability to pursue strategic transactions or find suitable acquisition targets. For additional discussion of these risks and uncertainties, please refer to Company’s filings with the SEC, such as its annual and quarterly reports. We do not undertake any obligation to publicly update or revise these forward-looking statements, except as otherwise required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, we consider Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EPS, Net Debt and Net Leverage Ratio, financial measures that are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP.

We define Adjusted Net Income as net income (loss) before amortization and certain other adjustments that we do not consider in our evaluation of our ongoing operating performance from period to period.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as Adjusted Net Income before interest expense, depreciation (including depreciation of Co-60 used in our operations) and income tax provision applicable to Adjusted Net Income. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is equal to Adjusted EBITDA divided by net revenues.

We define Adjusted EPS as Adjusted Net Income divided by the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding.

Our Net Debt is equal to our total debt, plus unamortized debt issuance costs and debt discounts, less cash and cash equivalents.

Our Net Leverage Ratio is equal to Net Debt divided by Adjusted EBITDA.

We use these non-GAAP financial measures as the principal measures of our operating performance. Management believes these are useful because they allow management to more effectively evaluate our operating performance and compare the results of our operations from period to period without the impact of certain non-cash items and non-routine items that we do not expect to continue at the same level in the future and other items that are not core to our operations. We believe that these measures are useful to our investors because they provide a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting our business than could be obtained absent this disclosure. In addition, we believe these measures will assist investors in making comparisons to our historical operating results and analyzing the underlying performance of our operations for the periods presented. Our management also uses these measurements in their financial analysis and operational decision-making and Adjusted EBITDA serves as the metric for attainment of our primary annual incentive program. These measures may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, a similarly titled measure used by other companies.
