Entegris Reports Third-Quarter Results

BILLERICA, Mass., Oct. 26, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Entegris, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENTG), a leader in specialty chemicals and advanced materials solutions for the microelectronics industry, today reported its financial results for the Company's third quarter ended October 1, 2016.

The Company reported third-quarter sales of $296.7 million.  Third-quarter net income was $21.9 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, which included amortization of intangible assets of $11.0 million, asset impairment charges of $5.8 million related to certain production equipment and $2.4 million of severance expenses related to an organizational realignment.  Non-GAAP net income was $34.6 million, or $0.24 per diluted share.  In the third quarter, the Company generated cash from operations less capital expenditures, or free cash flow, of $59 million.

For the first nine months of fiscal 2016, sales of $866.8 million increased 6 percent from the same period a year ago.  Net income for the first nine months of fiscal 2016 was $71.0 million, or $0.50 per share, which included amortization of intangible assets of $33.3 million, asset impairment charges of $5.8 million related to certain production equipment and $2.4 million of severance expenses related to an organizational realignment.  In the comparable period a year ago, net income was $62.7 million, or $0.44 per share, which included amortization of intangible assets of $35.9 million and acquisition integration expense of $7.1 million.  Non-GAAP net income for the first nine months of fiscal 2016 was $98.6 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, which increased from $91.8 million, or $0.65 per diluted share, in the prior year.

Bertrand Loy, president and chief executive officer, said: "We are on track to achieve our multiyear objective to outpace our markets and to deliver both record sales and profits in 2016.  Our strong quarter reflected record sales of liquid filtration products and solid performance across most of our businesses, as well as the favorable impact of the stronger yen."

Mr. Loy added:  "In the third quarter, we generated record free cash flow of $59 million and repaid an additional $25 million of long-term debt.  Looking ahead, we are excited about our growth prospects given the increasing opportunities for Entegris to leverage its unique breadth of capabilities to address the electronics industry's continual pursuit of higher performance and cleaner materials."
