CMC Materials Reports Record Revenue for the Third Quarter of Fiscal 2021

08/04/2021
  • Record Total Company Revenue of $309.5 Million, 12.7% Higher than Last Year and 6.5% Higher Sequentially
  • Electronic Materials Segment Revenue of $251.1 Million, 13.9% Higher than Last Year and 3.5% Higher Sequentially
  • Expecting Total Company Revenue for Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2021 to be Approximately Flat Sequentially
  • Full Year Adjusted EBITDA Guidance Range Revised to Between $355 Million and $365 Million

AURORA, Ill., Aug. 04, 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 third quarter of fiscal 2021, which ended June 30, 2021.

“Our CMC Materials team delivered another quarter of solid results, posting record revenue. Within Electronic Materials, we are particularly proud of the execution from our CMP pads and electronic chemicals businesses. We are also encouraged by the improvement in our pipeline and industrial materials (PIM) business,” said David Li, President and CEO of CMC Materials.

“Looking ahead, we have revised our expectation for full year Adjusted EBITDA reflecting industry-wide inflationary pressures and lower than expected CMP slurries revenue in the short-term, driven by variability in order patterns from certain Chinese customers. As we actively address these challenges, we remain confident that our technological differentiation, deep customer collaboration and extensive global footprint should enable us to build upon our industry-leading positions,” said Li.

Key Highlights for the Third Quarter

The company’s record quarterly revenue of $309.5 million, an increase of 12.7% compared to the same quarter last year, 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, the PIM business showed solid improvement sequentially, yet continues to be adversely impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic (“Pandemic”). In the quarter, the company recorded a $3.1 million impairment charge for the wood treatment business related to the previously announced strategic decision to exit this business. Net income was $33.6 million compared to $34.5 million in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA1 was $96.0 million, compared to $92.0 million in the prior year. Year to date, the company generated $179.8 million in cash flow from operations, and $263.0 million in the last twelve months.

Key Financial Information for the Third Quarter

  • Revenue was $309.5 million, 12.7% higher than the same quarter last year due to growth in both the company’s segments. Revenue was up 6.5% sequentially.

  • Net income was $33.6 million compared to $34.5 million in the same quarter last year. Adjusted net income1 was $55.2 million, 3.9% higher compared to the prior year, as higher revenue and lower interest expense was partially offset by higher costs.

  • Diluted EPS was $1.13. Adjusted diluted EPS1 was $1.86, 3.3% higher compared to the same quarter last year.

  • Adjusted EBITDA1 was $96.0 million, up 4.3% compared to the same quarter last year. Adjusted EBITDA margin1 for the quarter was 31.0%, compared to adjusted EBITDA margin of 33.5% in the same quarter last year.

Electronic Materials – Revenue was $251.1 million, 13.9% higher than revenue in the same quarter last year due to continued strength across all businesses, and the addition of International Test Solutions (ITS), which is reported as materials technologies. Revenue was 3.5% higher sequentially. Adjusted EBITDA was $82.5 million, or 32.9% of revenue.

Performance Materials Revenue was $58.4 million for the quarter, 7.5% higher than revenue in the same quarter last year, driven primarily by improved demand for the company’s PIM products. Revenue was 21.8% higher sequentially. Adjusted EBITDA was $25.5 million, or 43.6% of revenue.

Current Financial Guidance

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

The company revised the full fiscal year 2021 expectation for its Adjusted EBITDA range to between $355 million to $365 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.
