Item 8.01 Other Events.
As previously announced on 4 November 2021, the Company reorganized its industrial gas segments effective 1 October 2021 and will report results under the following five reporting segments beginning in the first quarter of fiscal year 2022:
Industrial Gases – Americas;
Industrial Gases – Asia;
Industrial Gases – Europe;
Industrial Gases – Middle East; and
Corporate and other

The reorganization reflects the separation of our former Industrial Gases – EMEA segment into two separate reporting segments: Industrial Gases – Europe; and Industrial Gases – Middle East. In connection with this reorganization, the results of an affiliate formerly reflected in the Industrial Gases – Asia segment will now be reported in the Industrial Gases – Middle East segment. In addition, the results of our former Industrial Gases – Global reporting segment will be reflected in the Corporate and other segment. Except for the Corporate and other segment, each reporting segment will meet the definition of an operating segment and will not include the aggregation of multiple operating segments. Our Corporate and other segment will include the aggregation of three operating segments that meet the aggregation criteria under GAAP. These changes in the segment structure affect the manner in which the results of our operating segments are reported and will have no impact on our previously reported consolidated financial statements or results of operations.

Beginning with our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the first quarter of fiscal year 2022, segment results will be presented on a retrospective basis to reflect the reorganization.

The Company is issuing this Current Report on Form 8-K to provide historical financial information to investors that is comparable to the format in which results will be presented beginning in the first quarter of fiscal year 2022. Such segment reorganization and unaudited historical financial information is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. This information is also being made available on our Investor Relations website at https://investors.airproducts.com/earnings.

The information provided is presented on a continuing operations basis. Certain financial measures provided are presented on an "adjusted," or "non-GAAP," basis to reflect supplemental financial information our management uses internally to evaluate the operating performance of our businesses. On a segment basis, these measures include adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin.
