Bertrand Loy, President and Chief Executive Officer, said: "In the third quarter, we delivered solid results that showcased the resilience of our unit-driven business model and the strong execution of our teams. While end markets continue to be uneven, we experienced accelerated demand for our advanced solutions in new technology nodes. Another highlight of the quarter was our acquisition of Hangzhou Anow, which broadens our filtration offerings and provides us with manufacturing capabilities in China."

Mr. Loy added: "Going forward, greater materials intensity and greater materials purity will continue to be the two defining factors of the next generation of semiconductor performance. Entegris has never been better positioned and more relevant for our customers, to help them achieve the targeted levels of chip performance, yields and reliability. We feel confident in our positive business momentum going into the fourth quarter and we expect 2019 to be a record year for Entegris."

Segment Results

The Company reports its results in the following segments:

Specialty Chemicals and Engineered Materials (SCEM): SCEM provides high-performance and high-purity process chemistries, gases and materials, as well as safe and efficient delivery systems to support semiconductor and other advanced manufacturing processes.

Microcontamination Control (MC): MC solutions purify critical liquid chemistries and gases used in semiconductor manufacturing processes and other high-technology industries.

Advanced Materials Handling (AMH): AMH develops solutions to monitor, protect, transport, and deliver critical liquid chemistries, wafers, and substrates for a broad set of applications in the semiconductor industry and other high-technology industries.

Change in Inter-Segment Reporting

In the first quarter of 2019, the Company changed its definition of segment profit to include inter-segment sales. The Company updated its recognition of inter-segment sales to recognize the revenue and profit associated with products and components produced in one segment and supplied to another, before being sold to the ultimate end customer. The Company accounts for inter-segment sales and transfers as if the sales or transfers were to third parties, that is, at approximate market prices. Prior quarter information has been recast to reflect the change in the Company's definition of segment profit.

Non-GAAP Information

The Company's condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP). Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Gross Profit, Adjusted Segment Profit, and Adjusted Operating Income, together with related measures thereof, and non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS, are considered "Non-GAAP financial measures" under the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision-making, as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons, as well as comparisons to the Company's competitors' operating results. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's performance and liquidity by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of the Company's recurring business operating results, such as amortization, depreciation and discrete cash charges that may vary significantly from period to period. The Company believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing and understanding the Company's results and performance and when planning, forecasting, and analyzing future periods. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors both because (1) they allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision-making and (2) they are used by the Company's institutional investors and the analyst community to help them analyze the Company's business. The reconciliations of GAAP Net Income to Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted EBITDA, GAAP Net Income and Earnings per Share to Non-GAAP Net Income and Earnings per Share, GAAP Gross Profit to Adjusted Gross Profit and GAAP Segment Profit to Adjusted Operating Income are included elsewhere in this release.
