TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 4, 2019-- Versum Materials, Inc. (NYSE: VSM), a leading specialty materials and equipment supplier to the semiconductor industry, today reported results for the fiscal first quarter ended December 31, 2018.

Sales were $339.5 million, up 3% versus prior year quarter, driven by growth from both the Materials and Delivery Systems & Services ("DS&S") segments. Net income was $61.1 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, up 227% versus prior year quarter, primarily due to the impact of the US Tax Act. Adjusted Net Income was $60.2 million, up 2% versus prior year quarter, or $0.55 per diluted share, also up 2%. Adjusted EBITDA was $110.4 million, up 7% versus prior year quarter, primarily due to the volume growth in Materials.

Guillermo Novo, Versum Materials' President and Chief Executive Officer said, "We delivered another solid quarter, with revenue rising three percent and adjusted EBITDA increasing seven percent. Both segments continued to deliver volume and sales growth and our Advanced Materials business sustained its innovation momentum and increased revenues again by double-digits."

Fiscal Year 2019 Outlook

For fiscal year 2019, Versum Materials currently estimates sales of $1,380 to $1,430 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $465 to $485 million.

Regarding the fiscal 2019 outlook, Mr. Novo added, “While the industry outlook for the first half of the calendar year has weakened, we continue to support our Process of Record (POR) ramps, execute our Delivery Systems projects and advance our unique growth accelerators. We believe that we will deliver another solid performance this year.”

Business Segment Results

Materials

Sales were $221.7 million, up 3% from the prior year quarter due to double-digit volume growth in Advanced Materials and modest volume growth in Process Materials, partially offset by negative price/mix in Process Materials. Stronger sales in both memory and logic offset weaker foundry activity in the quarter.

Operating income was $67.6 million, up 2% from the prior year quarter. Segment Adjusted EBITDA was $80.2 million, up 4% from the prior year quarter driven by volumes.

Delivery Systems & Services (DS&S)

Sales were $117.2 million, up 2% from the prior year quarter, driven by continued strong activity in equipment and installations.

Operating income was $34.7 million, up 4% from the prior year quarter. Segment Adjusted EBITDA was $35.4 million, up 5% from the prior year quarter, driven by equipment and installation growth and favorable product mix.

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.

(A) - The fiscal first quarter ended December 31, 2017 amounts have been recast to reflect the retrospective application of the company ’s election to change its inventory valuation method of accounting for its U.S. inventories from the LIFO method to the FIFO method. This resulted in an increase in operating income for the materials segment by $0.2 million for the fiscal first quarter ended December 31, 2017 and the year ended September 30, 2018.
 
(B) - The fiscal full year ended September 30, 2018 amounts have been recast to reflect the retrospective application of the company’s change in classification of the non-service components of net periodic pension cost. This resulted in an increase in operating income of $0.5 million, $0.1 million and $0.1 million for the Materials, DS&S and Corporate segments, respectively, for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018. All quarters have been updated to reflect this change.
 
(C) Segment Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing Segment Adjusted EBITDA by sales.
