Entegris Reports Fourth-Quarter and Full-Year Results; $100 Million Share Repurchase Authorization Announced

  • Quarterly revenue of $266.8 million
  • GAAP net income of $17.6 million, or $0.12 per diluted share; Non-GAAP net income of $28.8 million, or $0.20 per diluted share
  • Generated $52.2 million in Cash from Operations


BILLERICA, Mass., Feb. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Entegris, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENTG), a leading provider of yield-enhancing materials and solutions for advanced manufacturing processes, today reported its financial results for the Company’s fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2015.

The Company recorded fourth-quarter sales of $266.8 million. Fourth-quarter net income of $17.6 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, included amortization of intangible assets of $11.4 million and aggregated acquisition and integration-related costs of $ 5.6 million associated with the April 30, 2014 acquisition of ATMI, Inc. Non-GAAP net income was $ 28.8 million, or $0.20 per diluted share.

Fiscal 2015 sales were $1.1 billion and compared to sales of $962.1 million in fiscal 2014. Net income for fiscal 2015 was $80.3 million which included amortization of intangible assets of $47.3 million and aggregated acquisition and integration-related costs of $12.7 million associated with the acquisition of ATMI, Inc. Net income of $0.57 per diluted share compared to net income of $0.06 per diluted share a year earlier. On a non-GAAP basis, net income per diluted share in fiscal 2015 was $0.85 compared with net income per diluted share of $0.69 for the year earlier.

Bertrand Loy, president and chief executive officer, said: “The fourth quarter was a strong finish to a transformational year for Entegris. We are pleased with our fourth-quarter sales of $266.8 million, particularly in light of softening trends in the semiconductor industry. Non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.20 reflected a lower gross margin which was offset by a favorable tax rate. Gross margin was primarily impacted by lower manufacturing volumes as we aggressively drove a reduction of our inventory levels, as well as accelerated customer qualification activity related to the i2M ramp. The 8 percent reduction of inventories helped us generate near record cash from operations in the quarter.”

Mr. Loy added: “For the year, we grew our top line on a constant currency basis in excess of our markets, in spite of a difficult industry environment. We generated $121 million of cash from operations, and grew our Non-GAAP earnings per share by 23 percent to a record high. We are particularly pleased with these results in a year in which we completed an effective integration of ATMI, accelerated our new product development activity, and repaid $100 million of our debt.”

Non-GAAP Information
The Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP). Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Operating Income together with related measures thereof, and non-GAAP EPS, are considered “Non-GAAP financial measures” under the rules and regulations of the SEC. These financial measures are provided as a complement to financial measures provided in accordance with GAAP. We provide non-GAAP financial measures in order to better assess and measure operating performance. Management believes the non-GAAP measures better portray our baseline performance before certain gains, losses or other charges that may not be indicative of our business or future outlook. We believe these non-GAAP measures will aid investors’ overall understanding of our results by providing a higher degree of transparency for certain expenses and providing a level of disclosure that will help investors understand how we plan and measure our business. The reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP Statements of Operations, GAAP to Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted EBITDA, and GAAP to Non-GAAP Earnings per Share are included elsewhere in this release.

In addition we have included pro forma segment net sales and segment profit for the Critical Materials Handling and Electronic Materials business segments for the twelve months ended December 31, 2014. Our pro forma presentation includes transactions (i) recorded by ATMI, Inc. prior to its merger with the Company and (ii) as if those business segments were configured during those prior periods to include the businesses included in those segments during the twelve months ended December 31, 2014. We have provided this non-GAAP pro forma information to provide investors with comparative historical context for the performance of these business segments during the twelve months ended December 31, 2014. Footnotes to the Historical Non-GAAP Pro Forma Segment Information table provided elsewhere in this release reconcile this information to the corresponding GAAP information.
