Entegris Reports First-Quarter Results

BILLERICA, Mass., April 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Entegris, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENTG) today reported its financial results for the Company's first quarter ended March 29, 2014.

The Company recorded first-quarter sales of $165.8 million, which compared to $186.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 and $165.1 million in the first quarter a year ago. First-quarter operating margin was 11.2 percent, with adjusted operating margin of 13.4 percent, excluding amortization of intangible assets of $2.3 million and transaction-related cost associated with the acquisition of ATMI of $1.3 million. Net income for the first quarter was $14.3 million, or $0.10 per diluted share. Non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.12 in the first quarter of 2014 compared to $0.16 in the fourth quarter of 2013 and $0.13 in the first quarter of 2013. A reconciliation table of GAAP to non-GAAP earnings per share and operating margin is contained in this press release.

Bertrand Loy, president and chief executive officer, said: "As expected, our first-quarter sales declined from the strong fourth quarter reflecting seasonally slower trends and a mixed industry environment. On an operating basis, we performed well, achieving our target operating model and generating cash flow from operations in line with our plans. We remain very pleased with the quality and extent of our intensified partnerships and collaborations with the key technology leaders in the industry, which position us well as these leaders ramp their next-generation manufacturing process technologies."

Mr. Loy added: "We were pleased to note that ATMI shareholders voted overwhelmingly in favor of our acquisition of ATMI, and we expect to receive the remaining regulatory approval sometime around the end of April. We are excited about the prospects of the combination of Entegris and ATMI for our shareholders, customers, and employees."

Before any impact or transaction-related costs of the anticipated acquisition of ATMI, for the fiscal second quarter ending June 28, 2014 the Company expects sales of $165 million to $175 million, net income of $13 million to $18 million, and EPS between $0.09 to $0.13 per share. On a non-GAAP basis, EPS is expected to range from $0.10 to $0.14 per share, which reflects net income on a non-GAAP basis in the range of $14 million to $19 million, which is adjusted for expected amortization expense of $2.3 million or $0.01 per share.
