Entegris Reports Financial Results for Third Quarter of Fiscal 2013

BILLERICA, Mass., Oct. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Entegris, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENTG) today reported its financial results for the Company's third quarter ended September 28, 2013.

The Company recorded third-quarter sales of $164.6 million, a decline of 7 percent sequentially, and an 11 percent decline from the prior year third quarter. Third-quarter operating margin was 14.5 percent, with an adjusted operating margin of 14.8 percent, excluding amortization of intangible assets of $2.3 million and a contingent consideration fair value adjustment of $1.8 million. Net income for the third quarter was $17.8 million, or $0.13 per share. Non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.14 in the third quarter of 2013 compared to $0.15 in the second quarter of 2013 and $0.16 in the third quarter of 2012. A reconciliation table of GAAP to non-GAAP earnings per share and operating margin is contained in this press release.

For the first nine months of fiscal 2013, sales were $507.2 million, down 7 percent from the first nine months of 2012. Net income for the first nine months of 2013 was $54.0 million, or $0.39 per share, compared to $57.6 million, or $0.42 per share, for the same period a year ago. Non-GAAP earnings per share for the first nine months of 2013 were $0.42 per share versus $0.46 per share a year ago.

Bertrand Loy, president and chief executive officer, said: "After a strong second quarter, our third quarter sales declined as we expected. The results reflect a mixed industry picture, as pockets of intensified technology spending by some semi makers were in contrast with slowing industry production rates for some high-end devices. Even so, order trends for our products were favorable through the end of the quarter and point to higher revenues in the fourth quarter."

"Despite the low revenue levels for the third quarter, I was pleased with the operating results. We reduced our operating expenses even as we increased our investment in R&D as planned to further the development of a variety of contamination control solutions for customers' advanced processes. Cash flow was strong as we generated $32 million of cash from operations," said Loy.

For the fiscal fourth quarter ending December 31, 2013, the Company expects sales to be approximately $165 million to $175 million, and EPS to range between $0.10 and $0.12 per share. On a non-GAAP basis, EPS is expected to range from $0.11 to $0.13 per share, which reflects net income on a non-GAAP basis in the range of $15 million to $18 million, which is adjusted for expected amortization expense of $2.3 million or $0.01 per share.
