  • Full Year Adjusted EBITDA Guidance Range Increased to Between $370 Million and $390 Million

AURORA, Ill., May 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CMC Materials, Inc. (Nasdaq: CCMP), a leading global supplier of consumable materials primarily to semiconductor manufacturers, today reported financial results for its second quarter of fiscal 2021, which ended March 31, 2021.

“We are pleased to announce another quarter of record revenue driven by our continued technology leadership and execution, particularly in our Electronic Materials segment. We have completed the acquisition of International Test Solutions which we believe is a great addition to our Electronic Materials portfolio that expands our growth opportunities in critical consumables and services used in the semiconductor packaging and test areas,” said David Li, President and CEO of CMC Materials. “Looking ahead to our third fiscal quarter, we expect to again deliver sequential growth above this record quarter, across both segments.”

Key Highlights for the Second Quarter

The company’s revenue of $290.5 million, an increase of 2.2% compared to the same quarter last year, and another quarter of record revenue, was driven by continued robust demand in the company’s Electronic Materials segment, which represents more than 80% of the company’s revenue. In the company’s Performance Materials segment, pipeline and industrial materials (PIM) products showed continued stability sequentially, yet continues to be adversely impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic (“Pandemic”). The ongoing impact of the Pandemic on the PIM business has resulted in the company recording a non-cash, pre-tax goodwill impairment charge of $201.5 million. In addition, the company recorded a $6.7 million charge for the wood treatment business related to the previously announced strategic decision to exit this business by approximately the end of calendar year 2021. These charges resulted in a quarterly net loss of $149.8 million compared to net income of $32.9 million in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA1 was $84.8 million, compared to $85.9 million in the prior year. Year to date, the company generated $123.5 million in cash flow from operations, and $298.5 million in the last twelve months.

Key Financial Information for the Second Quarter

  • Revenue was $290.5 million, 2.2% higher than the same quarter last year. Revenue was up 0.9% sequentially primarily due to higher revenue in CMP slurries and CMP pads.

  • Net loss was $149.8 million compared to net income of $32.9 million last year. Adjusted net income1 was $50.7 million, 2.7% lower compared to the prior year, as higher revenue and lower interest expense was offset by higher costs.

  • Loss per diluted share was $5.13. Adjusted diluted EPS1 was $1.71, 2.3% lower compared to the same quarter last year.

  • Adjusted EBITDA1 was $84.8 million, down 1.3% compared to last year. Adjusted EBITDA margin1 for the quarter was 29.2%, compared to adjusted EBITDA margin of 30.2% in the same quarter last year.

1 Refer to financial tables and “Use of Certain GAAP, non-GAAP Adjusted Financial Information” below for information about these non-GAAP financial measures and reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to their most comparable GAAP measure.

Electronic Materials – Revenue was $242.5 million for the quarter, 10.8% higher than revenue in the same quarter last year due to continued strength across all business units. Revenue was 2.4% higher sequentially. Adjusted EBITDA was $81.3 million, or 33.5% of revenue.

Performance Materials Revenue was $48.0 million for the quarter, 26.5% lower than revenue in the same quarter last year, driven primarily by the impact of the pandemic on demand for PIM products. Revenue was 6.0% lower sequentially, mainly due to timing of sales in the QED and wood treatment businesses, while PIM demand remained stable. Adjusted EBITDA was $18.8 million, or 39.1% of revenue.

Current Financial Guidance

Sequentially, the company currently expects revenue in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 to be up mid to high single digits compared to revenue in the second quarter. Electronic Materials revenue is expected to be up mid single digits and Performance Materials revenue is expected to be up high single digits for the third fiscal quarter.

The company increased the full fiscal year 2021 expectation for its Adjusted EBITDA range to between $370 million and $390 million.

With respect to this guidance, and additional current expectations provided in the company’s related slide presentation and prepared commentary, the company notes the continued uncertainty as to the ongoing macroeconomic environment and the impact of the pandemic on the industries in which the company participates.

USE OF CERTAIN GAAP AND NON-GAAP ADJUSTED FINANCIAL INFORMATION

The company’s financial results are provided in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP) and using certain non-GAAP financial measures. In particular, the Company presents the following non-GAAP financial measures: adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, free cash flow, and net debt. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and excludes certain items that affect comparability from period to period. Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue.

The non-GAAP financial measures provided in this press release are a supplement to, and not a substitute for, the company’s financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance the investor's understanding about the company's ongoing operations. Specifically, the company believes the impact of the adjustments related to impairment charges, acquisitions, such as expenses incurred to complete an acquisition and related integration and acquisition-related amortization expenses, costs of restructuring related to the wood treatment business, costs incurred related to the COVID-19 pandemic (“Pandemic”) net of grants received, costs related to the KMG-Bernuth warehouse fire net of insurance recoveries and the effects of Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in December 2017 in the United States (“Tax Act”) and the issued final regulations related to the Tax Act, are not indicative of its core operating results and thus presents these certain measures excluding these effects. The presentation of non-GAAP financial measures is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to their most comparable GAAP measures are included in the financial statements portion of this press release.

Adjusted EBITDA for the Electronic Materials and Performance Materials segments is presented in conformity with Accounting Standards Codification Topic 280, Segment Reporting. This measure is reported to the chief operating decision maker for purposes of making decisions about allocating resources to the segments and assessing their performance. For these reasons, this measure is excluded from the definition of non-GAAP financial measures under the SEC Regulation G and Item 10(e) of Regulation S-K.
