MKS Instruments Reports Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results

  • Record quarterly revenue of $954 million
  • Non-GAAP net earnings per diluted share of $2.74 and GAAP net income per diluted share of $0.09
  • Successfully completed acquisition of Atotech Limited, adding critical chemistry solutions for advanced electronics and specialty industrial markets to MKS’ portfolio

ANDOVER, Mass., Nov. 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MKS Instruments, Inc. (NASDAQ: MKSI), a global provider of technologies that enable advanced processes and improve productivity, today reported third quarter 2022 financial results.

“We delivered a strong third quarter driven by robust demand for our vacuum and photonics solutions,” said John T.C. Lee, President and Chief Executive Officer. “While end market demand in our Semiconductor and Advanced Electronics markets is expected to soften in the fourth quarter and into 2023, we believe our market leadership in critical technologies for advanced device manufacturing, our operational track record, and our significant base of consumables and services revenue position MKS to emerge from this changing market landscape even stronger than when we entered into it.”

Mr. Lee added, “The third quarter also marked a major advancement in MKS’ long-term strategy, as we completed the acquisition of Atotech Limited. Atotech broadens MKS’ capabilities by adding leadership in critical chemistry solutions for advanced electronics and specialty industrial applications. We are thrilled to welcome the talented global team of over 4,000 new employees to the MKS family.”

“We delivered revenues above the midpoint of our guidance range, and are especially pleased with the 100 basis point sequential improvement in Non-GAAP operating margin,” said Seth H. Bagshaw, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. “This performance is a testament to our track record of prudent cost management.”

Mr. Bagshaw added, “We exited the third quarter with a net leverage ratio of 3.3. We have a well-established history of rapidly paying down debt following each major acquisition, and will be focused on doing so again in the coming quarters.”

Fourth Quarter 2022 Outlook

Based on current business levels, regulatory environment, and certain supply chain constraints, the Company expects revenue in the fourth quarter of 2022 of $1.00 billion, plus or minus $50 million. At these volumes, the Company expects Non-GAAP net earnings per diluted share of $1.34, plus or minus $0.27.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Results

This press release includes financial measures that are not in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“Non-GAAP financial measures”). These Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as a substitute for, MKS’ reported results under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), and may be different from Non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. In addition, these Non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. MKS management believes the presentation of these Non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors for comparing prior periods and analyzing ongoing business trends and operating results.

MKS is not providing a quantitative reconciliation of forward-looking Non-GAAP gross margin, operating expenses, interest expense, net, income tax rate, net earnings, net earnings per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures because it is unable to estimate with reasonable certainty the ultimate timing or amount of certain significant items without unreasonable efforts. These items include, but are not limited to, acquisition and integration costs, acquisition inventory step-up, amortization of intangible assets, restructuring and other expense, asset impairment, and the income tax effect of these items. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, including, but not limited to, our recent acquisition of Atotech and could have a material impact on GAAP reported results for the relevant period.

For further information regarding these Non-GAAP financial measures, please refer to the tables presenting reconciliations of our Non-GAAP results to our GAAP results and the “Notes on Our Non-GAAP Financial Information” at the end of this press release.

Notes on Our Non-GAAP Financial Information

Non-GAAP financial measures adjust GAAP financial measures for the items listed below. These Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as a substitute for, MKS’ reported GAAP results, and may be different from Non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. In addition, these Non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. MKS management believes the presentation of these Non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors for comparing prior periods and analyzing ongoing business trends and operating results. Totals presented may not sum due to rounding.

Note 1: Acquisition and integration costs during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and the three months ended June 30, 2022 primarily related to the Atotech Acquisition. Acquisition and integration costs during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 primarily related to our acquisition of Photon Control and the Atotech Acquisition. Acquisition and integration costs during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 also included costs related to a proposed acquisition that was not consummated.

Note 2: Costs of revenues during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 include the amortization from the step-up of inventory to fair value as a result of the Atotech Acquisition.

Note 3: Restructuring and other costs during the three months ended September 30, 2022 primarily related to executive payments made related to the Atotech Acquisition. Restructuring and other costs during the three months ended June 30, 2022 primarily related to severance costs due to a global cost-saving initiative and the closure of two facilities in Europe. Restructuring and other costs during the nine months ended September 30, 2022 primarily related to executive payments made related to the Atotech Acquisition and severance costs due to a global cost-saving initiative and the closure of two facilities in Europe. Restructuring and other costs during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 primarily related to duplicate facility costs attributed to entering into new facility leases, severance costs due to a global cost saving initiative, costs related to the closure of two facilities in Europe and movement of certain products to low-cost regions.

Note 4: We recorded additional interest expense related to the amortization of debt issuance costs associated with our new and prior term loan facilities.

Note 5: We recorded a gain on the sale of a minority interest investment in a private company.

Note 6: We realized a gain in the nine months ended September 30, 2022 from a euro currency contract used to hedge our financing in connection with the acquisition of Atotech. The contract expired on January 31, 2022. We recorded a fair-value loss in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 from Canadian dollar contracts used to hedge the funding of our acquisition of Photon Control.

Note 7: We no longer intend to indefinitely reinvest earnings of our foreign subsidiaries after the Atotech Acquisition. Additional income tax expense was recorded to reflect an estimate of withholding taxes that would be due on repatriation of prior period earnings.

Note 8: We recorded windfall tax benefits on the vesting of stock-based compensation.

Note 9: We recorded additional withholding taxes on intercompany undistributed earnings following the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union.

Note 10: Non-GAAP adjustments are tax effected at applicable statutory rates resulting in a difference between the GAAP and Non-GAAP tax rates.
