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 unaudited financial results for the first nine months of 2022.

Arnaud Pieton, Chief Executive Officer of Technip Energies, commented:

“The world requires an energy system that balances affordability, availability, and sustainability. Recent events have underlined the urgent need for increased investment and accelerated project development, with a particular emphasis on natural gas, LNG, and low-to-zero carbon solutions.”

“For our company, this market reality is first evidenced by strong TPS order intake driving a 60% step change in segment backlog year-over-year, with notable awards in renewable fuels and ethylene markets – this reinforces the revenue growth trajectory of our highest margin segment. Furthermore, the commercial pipeline for Project Delivery is also growing with substantial early engagement in energy transition and traditional prospects. As such, we expect a significant improvement in order intake trends over the next 12-18 months. This also confirms that the combination of longer cycle Project Delivery with value accretive TPS provides an ideal blend for T.EN to be successful across energy cycles.”

“In the third quarter, our teams continued to demonstrate robust business execution and our revenues excluding Arctic LNG 2 increased as planned. The strength in margins, which are in line with our medium-term trajectory, demonstrates the quality of our underlying portfolio, an improving mix, and world-class project delivery.”

“Our orderly exit from Arctic LNG 2 is progressing and all operational personnel have been demobilized from the project. We have signed an Exit Framework Agreement with our customer, which we are currently implementing, and anticipate completing this process within the first half of 2023. The improved visibility on Arctic LNG 2 combined with nine months of achieved financials has enabled us to return to full company guidance for 2022.”

“T.EN’s business strategy is fully aligned with an improving energy market outlook. Supported by our strong balance sheet and commitment to further investment in our technology portfolio, we are well positioned to enable solutions for affordable, available, and sustainable energy. We remain resolutely focused on generating value for our shareholders through effective capital allocation and sustained excellence in execution.”

The FEED contract covers engineering for the floater, mooring, and inter-array cable (IAC) in collaboration with a wind turbine supplier. The design of the floating foundation will include Technip Energies’ in-house floater technology INO15™. With a capacity of 15 megawatts, INO15™ technology is a three columns semi-submersible floater which is well suited for large series production. Gray Whale 3, aiming to develop a 504 MW floating offshore wind farm located around 60 to 70 kilometers from Onsan Port in Ulsan, is one of three offshore wind projects with a total installed capacity of 1.5 gigawatts that Corio Generation and TotalEnergies are promoting off the coast of Ulsan.

License of first Blue H₂ by T.EN™ plant to LG Chem (South Korea)

  • Technip Energies announces that LG Chem selected our proprietary blue hydrogen technology to supply its Daesan complex in South Korea. The Blue H2 by T.EN™ hydrogen plant will capture a significant amount of carbon dioxide, and reduce carbon emissions from the petrochemical complex. LG Chem intends to utilize the captured CO2. The 56,000 Nm3/h capacity hydrogen plant will utilize Technip Energies’ proprietary steam reforming technology to convert methane-rich offgas from the naphtha cracking process into hydrogen. The hydrogen plant will include a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) unit for control of NOx emissions. The new hydrogen unit will be integrated with LG Chem’s naphtha cracking complex (NCC) to allow LG Chem to convert the petrochemical pyrolysis complex to a more sustainable low-carbon process.

Acquisition of Biosuccinium® technology for bio-sourced and fully biodegradable polymers production

  • This acquisition from DSM adds a technology solution to T.EN’s growing sustainable chemicals portfolio. This technology synergizes with recently developed proprietary bio-polymer technologies and provides a commercially referenced production of bio-based succinic acid (bio-SAc) that serves as feedstock for the production of polybutylene succinate (PBS). PBS itself is fully biodegradable and, if based on bio-SAc, is an ideal bio-based sustainable packaging material for food contact applications. It addresses consumers and governments concerns for better materials with lower carbon footprints and environmental impacts. Biosuccinium® technology will be the only technology for production of bio-based succinic acid to be licensed on the market.

Collaboration with deepC Store and Mitsui O.S.K. Lines for a floating carbon capture & storage hub development

  • Technip Energies, deepC Store Limited and Mitsui O.S.K. Lines executed a LOI regarding the EPC and operations for the CO2 floating storage and injection (“FSI”) hub facility scope for the CStore1 Project. CStore1 will be the first large-scale offshore multi-user hub and has a planned CO2 injection capacity of between 1.5 and 7.5 million tonnes per annum. It supports industry and community goals towards decarbonization and transitioning to a sustainable future. The three parties have agreed on the intent for Technip Energies to exclusively provide FEED and EPC services for the FSI hub using Technip Energies’ Offshore C-Hub™ technology, and for MOL to provide the Pre-FEED service for CO2 shipping scope and closely work with dCS and T.EN in relation to the FSI hub facility scope.

Advance technology collaboration with Agilyx with the launch of TruStyrenyx™ for chemical recycling of polystyrene

  • TruStyrenyx™ brand is the only all-in-one solution for the chemical recycling of polystyrene. TruStyrenyx™ combines Agilyx’s pyrolysis process and Technip Energies purification technology, yielding a recycled styrene monomer with exceptional high purity. Styrene monomer is used to make numerous plastics and other polymers. It is one of the three primary components of ABS (acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene), can make the pure polymer polystyrene, and is an ingredient in various synthetic rubbers. This launch follows successful results from pilot plant testing conducted on difficult to recycle waste polystyrene, including flame retardant laden waste polystyrene.

Cooperation agreement with APChemi for advanced plastic Waste-to-Olefins technology

  • Cooperation agreement aims to commercialize APChemi’s advanced plastic waste to high quality pyrolysis oil technology, in conjunction with Technip Energies’ pyrolysis oil upgradation and steam cracking technology. APChemi’s patented “Pyromax™” pyrolysis technology for recycling plastic waste closes the gap in the plastic supply chain by taking dirty and mixed plastic waste, including municipal solid waste segregated plastics and multilayer packaging, and breaking it down to produce high quality pyrolysis oil which can be chemically recycled into circular plastics. The process has a lower carbon footprint, as it displaces the need for crude-oil-based feedstocks for plastics manufacturing, while reducing the need for intensive plastic waste sorting. Technip Energies is closing the circular loop from pyrolysis oil to polyolefins building blocks by bringing its ethylene furnace and steam cracker design expertise, along with the preparation and purification technologies. The Pure.rOil by T.EN™ purification technology ensures safe, reliable and optimized integration with crackers.

Corporate and other items

Corporate costs, excluding non-recurring items, were €32.2 million for the first nine months of 2022. This included a positive foreign exchange impact of €2.1 million. This compare with corporate costs of €26.0 million in the prior year period.

Non-recurring expense amounted to €2.8 million mainly related to impairment on leased offices and restructuring charges.

Net financial expense was €7.2 million, impacted by the mark-to-market valuation of investments in traded securities and, to a lesser extent, interest expenses associated with the senior unsecured notes, partially offset by interest income from cash on deposit which is progressively benefiting from higher rates of interest.

Effective tax rate on an adjusted IFRS basis was 29.9% for the first nine months 2022, in line with full company guidance for 2022.

Depreciation and amortization expense was €80.0 million, of which €53.0 million is related to IFRS 16.

Adjusted net cash at September 30, 2022 was €3.3 billion, which compares to Adjusted net cash at December 31, 2021 of €3.1 billion.

Adjusted free cash flow was €122.1 million for the first nine months of 2022. Free cash flow, excluding the working capital variance of €152.6 million, was €274.7 million benefiting from strong operational performance and consistently high conversion from adjusted recurring EBIT. Free cash flow is stated after capital expenditures, net, of €36.5 million. Adjusted operating cash flow was €158.6 million.
