Fiscal Second Quarter 2019 Financial Highlights

  • Sales of $326 million, Net Income of $50 million, or diluted EPS of $0.46
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $110 million, or Adjusted EBITDA Margin of 34%
  • Adjusted Net Income of $62 million, or diluted EPS of $0.57
  • Entered definitive merger agreement with Merck KGaA

The results in this press release include Non-GAAP financial measures. Refer to the section entitled “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 7, 2019-- Versum Materials, Inc. (NYSE: VSM), a leading specialty materials and equipment supplier to the semiconductor industry, today reported results for the fiscal second quarter ended March 31, 2019.

Sales were $326.2 million, compared to $340.7 million in the prior year quarter. Net income was $50.4 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, compared to $0.56 per diluted share in the prior year, primarily due to softer revenue, transaction related expenses and higher taxes. Adjusted Net Income was $62.4 million, or $0.57 per diluted share, compared to $0.59 in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA was $110.1 million, flat versus prior year, with favorable costs offsetting the revenue softness.

Guillermo Novo, Versum Materials' President and Chief Executive Officer said, "I am extremely proud of our team for delivering solid adjusted EBITDA results in a moderating demand and investment environment. Our results demonstrate the resiliency of our business portfolio and our commitment to operating discipline. During the quarter, we continued to advance our technology positions for new nodes and executed on our capital projects, both which we believe will accelerate our growth in Fiscal 2020."

On April 12, 2019, Versum Materials announced entry into a definitive merger agreement with Merck KGaA. The business combination is expected to create a leading electronic materials player focused on the semiconductor and display industries. The combined companies and their customers and employees will benefit from increased scale, product portfolio, innovation and services depth, globally.

Mr. Novo added, “We are all very excited about joining Merck KGaA, a company with a long history of commitment to technology and innovation. Like all of us at Versum, they share our belief in the exciting future of the semiconductor industry. We look forward to combining our technology and infrastructure capabilities to offer a greater depth and breadth of materials technologies to our customers. We expect to play an even more critical role in our industry.”

No Fiscal Year 2019 Outlook or Earnings Conference Call

In light of the announced transaction with Merck KGaA, Versum Materials will not provide or update annual financial guidance and will not hold a conference call to review quarterly earnings results. The parties continue to work toward closing in the second half of 2019 and the transaction is subject to the approval of Versum stockholders at a Versum special meeting, regulatory clearances and the satisfaction of other customary closing conditions.

Business Segment Results

Materials

Sales were $216.5 million, compared to $218.9 million in the prior year as volume growth in the Materials segment was offset by negative price/mix and currency impacts. Overall performance for the quarter was impacted by softer demand in foundry and inventory management by memory customers. We made further progress on the introduction of new technologies for both new and legacy nodes, including ION‐X dopant gas customer qualifications and strategic Process of Record (POR) wins in aminosilane and cobalt precursors. We continued to advance our capital projects, including starting slurry production in Korea and advancing the qualification of new Hometown NF3 production.

Operating income was $65.4 million, compared to $71.7 million in the prior year. Segment Adjusted EBITDA was $78.2 million, compared to $83.3 million in the prior year due primarily to negative price/mix and increased manufacturing costs related to the start-up of capital investments.

Delivery Systems & Services (DS&S)

Delivery Systems posted another strong quarter with sales of $109.1 million, driven by the diversity of equipment, installation projects and services portfolio. This compared to $121.1 million in the prior year, impacted by softer demand and project timing.

Operating income was $34.9 million, compared to $32.9 million in the prior year. Segment Adjusted EBITDA was $35.6 million, compared to $33.3 million in the prior year, as favorable product mix, installation project completions and disciplined cost management more than offset softer equipment demand.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This earnings press release includes “non-GAAP financial measures,” including Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income Margin, Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share, Adjusted EBITDA, Segment Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, and Segment Adjusted EBITDA margin. Adjusted Net Income is net income excluding certain disclosed items which we do not believe to be indicative of underlying business trends, including business separation, restructuring and cost reduction actions, net of tax, the write-off of financing costs, net of tax, and the impact of the Tax Act. Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share uses Adjusted Net Income but otherwise uses the same calculation used in arriving at diluted earnings per share, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA is net income excluding certain disclosed items which we do not believe to be indicative of underlying business trends, including interest expense, the write-off of financing costs, non-service components of net periodic pension cost, income tax provision, depreciation and amortization expense, non-controlling interests, and business separation, restructuring and cost reduction actions. Segment Adjusted EBITDA is segment operating income excluding segment depreciation and amortization expense. Adjusted Net Income Margin, Adjusted EBITDA margin and Segment Adjusted EBITDA margin are calculated by dividing Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA and Segment Adjusted EBITDA, respectively, by sales. In the accompanying tables, Versum Materials has provided reconciliations of net income to Adjusted EBITDA (see Appendix Table A-1), net income to Adjusted Net Income (see Appendix Table A-2), diluted EPS to Adjusted Diluted EPS (see Appendix A-3) and of segment operating income (loss) to Segment Adjusted EBITDA by Quarter (see Appendix Table A-5), in each case the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. We encourage investors to read these reconciliations.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is intended to enhance the usefulness of financial information by providing measures which management uses internally to evaluate our operating performance. We use non-GAAP measures to assess our operating performance by excluding certain disclosed items that we believe are not representative of our underlying business. Management may use these non-GAAP measures to evaluate our performance period over period and relative to competitors in our industry, to analyze underlying trends in our business and to establish operational budgets and forecasts or for incentive compensation purposes. We use Adjusted EBITDA to calculate performance-based cash bonuses. We use Segment Adjusted EBITDA as the primary measure to evaluate the ongoing performance of our business segments.

We believe non-GAAP financial measures provide security analysts, investors and other interested parties with meaningful information to understand our underlying operating results and to analyze financial and business trends; enables better comparison to peer companies; and allows us to provide a long-term strategic view of the business going forward. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be viewed in isolation, are not a substitute for GAAP measures, and have limitations which include but are not limited to the following: (a) Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA exclude expenses related to business separation, restructuring and cost reduction actions and the write-off of financing costs, each of which we do not consider to be representative of our underlying business operations, however, these disclosed items represent costs to Versum Materials; (b) Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of cash available for management’s discretionary use, as it does not consider certain cash requirements such as interest payments, tax payments and debt service requirements; (c) though not business operating costs, interest expense and income tax provision represent ongoing costs of Versum Materials; (d) depreciation and amortization charges represent the wear and tear or reduction in value of the plant, equipment, and intangible assets which permit us to manufacture and market our products; and (e) other companies may define non-GAAP measures differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. A reader may find any one or all of these items important in evaluating our performance. Management compensates for the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures by using them only to supplement our GAAP results to provide a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting our business. In evaluating these non-GAAP financial measures, the reader should be aware that we may incur expenses similar to those eliminated in this presentation in the future.

A reconciliation of net income to Adjusted EBITDA as forecasted for 2019 is not provided. Versum Materials does not forecast net income as it cannot, without unreasonable effort, estimate or predict with certainty various components of net income. These components include restructuring and other income or charges to be incurred in 2019 as well as the related tax impacts of these items. Additionally, discrete tax items could drive variability in our forecasted effective tax rate. All of these components could significantly impact net income. Further, in the future, other items with similar characteristics to those currently included in Adjusted EBITDA that have a similar impact on comparability of periods, and which are not known at this time, may exist and impact Adjusted EBITDA.
