Share:

BILLERICA, Mass., Oct. 24, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Entegris, Inc. (Nasdaq: ENTG) today reported its financial results for the Company's third quarter ended September 29, 2012 and announced a CEO succession.

The Company recorded third-quarter sales of $184.4 million, a decline of 2 percent sequentially, and a 7 percent increase from the prior year third quarter. The third-quarter operating margin was 14.7 percent. Excluding amortization of intangible assets of $2.4 million and a one-time pre-tax charge of $3.9 million, or $0.02 per share, triggered by the CEO transition, the third-quarter adjusted operating margin was 18.1 percent. Net income for the third quarter was $18.0 million, or $0.13 per share. Non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.16 in the third quarter of 2012 compared to $0.16 in the second quarter of 2012 and $0.17 in the third quarter of 2011. 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 2012, sales were $548.1 million, down 6.4 percent from the first nine months of 2011. Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share for the first nine months of 2012 were $0.46 per share versus $0.64 per share for the same period a year ago.

The Company generated $33.3 million and $76.8 million in cash from operations in the third quarter and first nine months of 2012, respectively, and ended the third quarter with $315.8 million in cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments on the balance sheet and no debt.

Gideon Argov, president and chief executive officer, said: "We are pleased with our third-quarter performance. Although trends in the semiconductor industry softened in the quarter as expected, there was strong demand for our advanced filtration and wafer handling solutions as we continue to benefit from the industry's ramp of 28 nanometer and next-generation semiconductor fab processes. We also achieved our target operating model and generated strong cash flow during the quarter."

Entegris also announced that Bertrand Loy, currently chief operating officer will succeed Gideon Argov as president and CEO as part of a management succession and transition plan. Effective November 1, 2012, Bertrand Loy will be promoted to president and elected to the Entegris Board of Directors. Gideon Argov will continue to serve as chief executive officer and director of Entegris until November 27, 2012 when Mr. Loy will assume the position of chief executive officer.

Paul Olson, Entegris' chairman of the board, said, "The board has been developing a robust succession process with Gideon and Bertrand over the past two years. Bertrand is the perfect choice to lead Entegris going forward. He brings a keen intellect, excellent financial and operating skills, a global mindset, industry recognition, and a proven track record over the course of his 17-year career serving in senior financial and operating executive roles for Entegris and its predecessor company, Mykrolis. On behalf of the board, I want to thank Gideon for his eight years of insightful leadership and for creating an excellent foundation on which to build for Entegris."

Mr. Argov said, "Entegris is an exceptional company and it has been an honor and privilege to lead it through a period of transformation change. With the company on a solid financial footing and performing well, the time is right to make this transition. I leave the Company in good hands to continue to grow and extend its market leadership."

Mr. Loy said, "I am excited to be named as the next chief executive officer of Entegris. Together with Gideon and the global Entegris teams, we have built a highly successful platform focused on helping leading technology companies improve their yields and advance their process technologies. I look forward to leading Entegris into a very promising future."

Fourth-Quarter Outlook

For the fiscal fourth quarter ending December 31, 2012, the Company expects revenue of $160 to $170 million and EPS to range between $0.09 and $0.11. On a non-GAAP basis, EPS is expected to range from $0.10 to $0.12, which reflects net income adjusted for expected amortization expense of $2.3 million or $0.01 per share.
