Fourth Quarter 2022 Consolidated Results

Net sales increased 4.3% versus prior year or 15.4% when adjusting for currency, showing positive momentum exiting the year. Each segment continues to win new customers while passing through pricing to combat high cost inflation.

Loss before taxes of $79.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2022 included Special Items (as defined below) impact of $103.3 million and compared to loss before taxes of $17.4 million in fourth quarter 2021 including Special Items impact of $59.0 million. Adjusted net income in fourth quarter 2022 was $26.6 million compared to $51.2 million in the fourth quarter 2021 and $28.6
1



million in fourth quarter 2020 with Adjusted EPS of $0.09 in fourth quarter 2022 compared to $0.16 in fourth quarter 2021 and $0.12 in fourth quarter 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA for fourth quarter 2022 was $93.4 million, representing a decline of 14.7% versus the period in 2021 as reported or a decline of 5.8% when adjusting for currency. Adjusted EBITDA margin declined 300 basis points compared to the same period 2021. In the fourth quarter, pricing accounted for more than 14% revenue growth. However, accelerating pricing and volume was more than offset by higher costs and foreign exchange pressures in the period.

Segment Review

Net sales$490.3$486.90.7 %

Reported net sales in the Institutional segment of $490.3 million were 0.7% above Q4 2021 or 11.1% when adjusting for currency. Growth in the quarter reflects a combination of new client wins, innovation, pricing, and continued expansion with our existing customers. Adjusted EBITDA of $68.5 million declined 20.6% compared to Q4 2021 or 11.8% when adjusting for currency. Adjusted EBITDA margin declined 360 basis points vs Q4 2021 due to cost pressures, but has grown 280 basis points sequentially from Q1 2022 as pricing has gained traction. Acquisitions contributed $10.0 million to sales growth and $0.7 million to Adjusted EBITDA.

Net sales of $211.3 million in the Food & Beverage segment were 13.9% above Q4 2021 or 26.7% when adjusting for currency. This was driven by pricing, win rates and success with the new water treatment offering. Adjusted EBITDA of $24.0 million declined 25.9% and margin declined 610 basis points compared to Q4 2021. Adjusted EBITDA declined 17.3% when adjusting for currency. Acquisitions contributed $6.5 million to sales growth and $0.4 million to Adjusted EBITDA.

Transaction with Solenis

As announced on March 8, 2023, Diversey has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Solenis in an all-cash transaction valued at an enterprise value of approximately $4.6 billion. If the merger is consummated, Diversey’s ordinary shares will be delisted from the Nasdaq Global Select Market and the company will cease to be a reporting company. Diversey expects the merger to be completed in the second half of 2023, subject to a number of closing conditions, including, among others, approval from our shareholders, receipt of certain regulatory approvals, and other customary closing conditions. In light of this transaction, as is customary during the pendency of an acquisition, Diversey will not be hosting an earnings conference call or live webcast to discuss its Q4 2022 or 2022 full year financial results and Diversey will not be providing guidance for the first quarter or full fiscal year 2023. For further details and discussion of our financial performance please refer to our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022.

Cautionary Statements Regarding Forward-Looking Information

This communication contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, which include all statements that do not relate solely to historical or current facts, such as statements regarding the Company’s expectations, intentions or strategies regarding the future, including strategies or plans as they relate to the proposed transaction. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by the following words: “may,” “will,” “could,” “would,” “should,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “predict,” “project,” “aim,” “potential,” “continue,” “ongoing,” “goal,” “can,” “seek,” “target” or the negative of these terms or other similar expressions, although not all forward-looking statements contain these words. These forward-looking statements are based on management’s beliefs, as well as assumptions made by, and information currently available to, the Company. Because such statements are based on expectations as to future financial and operating results and are not statements of fact, actual results may differ materially from those projected and are subject to a number of known and unknown risks and uncertainties, including: (i) uncertainties as to the timing of the proposed transaction; (ii) the risk that the merger may not be completed in a timely manner or at all, which may adversely affect the Company’s business and the price of the Shares; (iii) the possibility that competing offers or acquisition proposals for the Company will be made; (iv) the failure to satisfy any of the conditions to the consummation of the proposed transaction, including the adoption of the merger agreement by the Company’s shareholders and the receipt of certain regulatory approvals; (v) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance or condition that could give rise to the termination of the merger agreement, including in certain circumstances requiring the Company to pay a termination fee; (vi) the effect of the announcement or pendency of the proposed transaction on the Company’s stock price, business relationships, operating results and business generally; (vii) risks that the proposed transaction may disrupt the Company’s current business plans and operations; (viii) the Company’s ability to retain and hire key personnel in light of the proposed transaction; (ix) risks related to diverting management’s attention from the Company’s ongoing business operations; (x) unexpected costs, charges or expenses resulting from the proposed transaction; (xi) the ability of the buyer to obtain the necessary financing arrangements set forth in the commitment letters received in connection with the merger; (xii) potential litigation relating to the merger that could be instituted against parties to the merger agreement or other transaction agreements or their respective directors, managers or officers, including the effects of any outcomes of such litigation; (xiii) certain restrictions during the pendency of the merger that may impact the Company’s ability to pursue certain business opportunities or strategic transactions; (xiv) uncertain global economic conditions which have had and could continue to have an adverse effect on our consolidated financial condition and results of operations; (xv) the continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic may cause disruptions to the Company’s operations, customer demand, and its suppliers’ ability to support the Company; (xvi) the risks associated with the global nature of the Company’s operations; (xvii) fluctuations between non-U.S. currencies and the U.S. dollar; (xviii) political and economic instability and risk of government actions affecting the Company’s business and its customers or suppliers; (xix) increases in the pricing of raw materials, availability and allocation by suppliers as well as increases in energy-related costs; (xx) the Company’s ability to develop new and innovative products and the acceptance of such products by the Company’s customers; (xxi) cyber risks and the failure to maintain the integrity of the Company’s operational or security systems or infrastructure; (xxii) the introduction of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s Base Erosion and Profit Shifting; (xxiii) the consolidation of the Company’s customers; (xxiv) competition in the markets for the Company’s products and services and in the geographic areas in which it operates; (xxv) instability and uncertainty in the credit and financial markets and the availability of credit that the Company and its customers need to operate the Company’s business; (xxvi) new and stricter regulations applicable to our business; (xxvii) continued availability of capital and financing and rating agency actions; and (xxviii) other risks described in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022, as may be updated or supplemented by any subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q or other filings with the SEC. All such factors are difficult to predict and are beyond the Company’s control. While the list of risks and uncertainties presented here is, and the discussion of risks and uncertainties to be presented in the proxy statement will be, considered representative, no such list or discussion should be considered a complete statement of all potential risks and uncertainties. Unlisted factors may present significant additional obstacles to the realization of forward-looking statements. Consequences of material differences in results as compared with those anticipated in the forward-looking statements could include, among other things, business disruption, operational problems, financial loss, and legal liability to third parties and similar risks, any of which could have a material adverse effect on the completion of the merger and/or the Company’s consolidated financial condition, results of operations, credit rating or liquidity. In light of the significant uncertainties in these forward-looking statements, the Company cannot assure you that the forward-looking statements in this press release will prove to be accurate, and you should not regard these statements as a representation or warranty by the Company, its directors, officers or employees or any other person that the Company will achieve its objectives and plans in any specified time frame, or at all.

The forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made. The Company undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by applicable law. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

We present financial information that conforms to generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“U.S. GAAP"). We also present financial information that does not conform to U.S. GAAP ("Non-GAAP"), as our management believes it is useful to investors.

The Non-GAAP financial metrics exclude items that we consider to be certain specified items (“Special Items”), such as restructuring charges, transition and transformation costs, certain transaction and other charges related to acquisitions and divestitures, gains and losses related to acquisitions and divestitures, and certain other items. We evaluate unusual or Special Items on an individual basis. Our evaluation of whether to exclude an unusual or Special Item for purposes of determining our Non-GAAP financial measures considers both the quantitative and qualitative aspects of the item, including among other things (i) its nature, (ii) whether or not it relates to our ongoing business operations, and (iii) whether or not we expect it to occur as part of our normal business on a regular basis.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are supplemental measures that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, U.S. GAAP. We define EBITDA as income (loss) before income tax provisions (benefit), interest expense, and depreciation and amortization, and Adjusted EBITDA, as EBITDA adjusted for other items to (i) eliminate certain non-operating income or expense items, (ii) eliminate the impact of certain non-cash and other items that are included in net income (loss) that we do not consider indicative of our ongoing operating performance, and (iii) eliminate certain unusual and non-recurring items impacting results in a particular period.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of our financial performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to revenues, net income (loss), income (loss) before income tax provision or any other performance measures derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP, nor should they be considered as alternatives to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, our method of calculating EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may vary from the methods used by other companies.

Our management considers EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to be key indicators of our financial performance. Additionally, we believe EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. We also believe that investors, analysts and rating agencies consider EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA useful means of measuring our ability to meet our debt service obligations and evaluating our financial performance, and management uses these measures for one or more of these purposes. Our presentation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or nonrecurring items. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have important limitations as analytical tools and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under U.S. GAAP. The use of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA instead of net income has limitations as an analytical tool.

Adjusted Net Income

Adjusted Net Income (as defined below) and Adjusted Earnings (Loss) Per Share (“Adjusted EPS”) are Non-GAAP financial measures. We define Adjusted Net Income as net income (loss) adjusted to (i) eliminate certain non-operating income or expense items, (ii) eliminate the impact of certain non-cash and other items that are included in net income that we do not consider indicative of our ongoing operating performance, (iii) eliminate certain unusual and non-recurring items impacting results in a particular period, and (iv) reflect the tax effect of items (i) through (iii) and other tax special items.

We believe that in addition to our results determined in accordance with GAAP, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS are useful in evaluating our business, results of operations and financial condition. We believe that Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS may be helpful to investors because they provide consistency and comparability with past financial performance and facilitate period to period comparisons of our operations and financial results, as they eliminate the effects of certain variables from period to period for reasons that we do not believe reflect our underlying operating performance or are unusual or infrequent in nature. However, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS are presented for supplemental informational purposes only and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute or alternative for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS have limitations as analytical tools.
