CLEVELAND, August 4, 2022 -- Parker Hannifin Corporation (NYSE: PH), the global leader in motion and control technologies, today reported results for the fiscal 2022 fourth quarter ended June 30, 2022. Fiscal 2022 fourth quarter sales were a record at $4.19 billion, an increase of 6%, compared with $3.96 billion in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021. Net income was $128.8 million compared with $504.8 million in the prior year quarter. Fiscal 2022 fourth quarter adjusted net income was $671.5 million, an increase of 16%, compared with $576.7 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021. Adjustments include a non-cash, pre-tax loss of $619.1 million in the fiscal 2022 fourth quarter on the deal contingent forward contracts related to the previously announced acquisition of Meggitt plc. Earnings per share were $0.99 compared with $3.84 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021. Adjusted earnings per share increased 18% to a record of $5.16 compared with $4.38 in the prior year quarter.
For the full year, fiscal 2022 sales were a record at $15.86 billion, an increase of 11%, compared with $14.35 billion in fiscal 2021. Fiscal 2022 net income was $1.32 billion compared with $1.75 billion in fiscal 2021. Fiscal 2022 adjusted net income was $2.44 billion compared with $1.97 billion in the prior year.

"Our results in the fourth quarter demonstrate the consistency with which Parker is executing and delivering record levels of performance," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Tom Williams. "The actions we have taken as part of The Win Strategy™ and the ongoing transformation of our portfolio have built a much more resilient and longer cycle business capable of weathering the challenges we have faced. For the full year, Parker achieved records across many financial measures including sales, adjusted segment operating margins, and adjusted earnings per share, and we also delivered strong cash generation. These are extraordinary achievements and my thanks to our global team for their resolve and contributions.”

The transaction remains subject to the U.S. Department of Justice approval and, where applicable, waiver of the conditions set out in the scheme circular published on August 16, 2021, including regulatory clearance and the sanction of the scheme of arrangement by the High Court of Justice in England and Wales pursuant to the UK Companies Act 2006.

Note on Orders
Orders provide near-term perspective on the company's outlook, particularly when viewed in the context of prior and future quarterly order rates. However, orders are not in themselves an indication of future performance. All comparisons are at constant currency exchange rates, with the prior year restated to the current-year rates. All exclude acquisitions until they can be reflected in both the numerator and denominator. Aerospace comparisons are rolling 12-month average computations. The total Parker orders number is derived from a weighted average of the year-over-year quarterly % change in orders for Diversified Industrial North America and Diversified Industrial International, and the year-over-year 12-month rolling average of orders for the Aerospace Systems Segment.
Note on Net Income
Net income referenced in this press release is equal to net income attributable to common shareholders.
