Dynamic Materials Reports Second Quarter and Six-Month Financial Results

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwired - Jul 29, 2014) - Dynamic Materials Corporation (DMC) (NASDAQ: BOOM) today reported financial results for the second quarter and six-month period ended June 30, 2014.

Second quarter sales were $53.6 million, down 7% from sales of $57.9 million in the same quarter last year, and a 12% sequential improvement versus this year's first quarter. Second quarter gross margin was 30%, consistent with last year's second quarter. 

Operating income was $4.0 million versus $6.0 million in the second quarter of 2013. Net income was $2.9 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, versus $3.4 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, in the same period a year ago. Second quarter adjusted EBITDA was $8.6 million versus $9.7 million in the second quarter last year. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) financial measure used by management to measure operating performance. See additional information about adjusted EBITDA at the end of this news release, as well as a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to GAAP measures. 

Oilfield Products
Oilfield Products reported second quarter sales of $27.4 million, up 8% from $25.5 million in the second quarter last year, and a quarterly record. Operating income increased to $3.4 million from $2.6 million in last year's second quarter, while adjusted EBITDA was $5.3 million versus $4.1 million in the comparable prior-year quarter. 

NobelClad
NobelClad reported sales of $26.2 million, down 19% from $32.4 million in the second quarter last year. Operating income was $3.1 million versus $5.2 million in the comparable year-ago quarter, while adjusted EBITDA was $4.8 million versus $6.7 million in last year's second quarter. NobelClad ended the quarter with an order backlog of $40.1 million, up 12% from $35.9 million at the end of this year's first quarter.

Six-Month Results
Consolidated sales for the six-month period were $101.7 million, down 2% from sales of $104.1 million in the same period last year. Gross margin improved to 30% from 29% for the comparable six-month period a year ago. Operating income improved to $6.8 million from $5.0 million during last year's six-month period. The 2013 six-month period included $3.0 million of non-recurring expenses associated with management retirements. 

Six-month net income improved to $4.5 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, from net income of $3.7 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, in the comparable year-ago period. Net income in the 2013 six-month period reflected a tax benefit of $1.2 million.

The Oilfield Products business reported sales of $50.9 million, up 12% from $45.6 million in last year's six-month period. Operating income was $7.0 million versus $4.0 million in the comparable year-ago period. Adjusted EBITDA was $10.7 million, up from $7.1 million in last year's six-month period.

NobelClad reported six-month sales of $50.8 million, down 13% from $58.6 million at the six-month mark last year. Operating income was $4.5 million, down from $7.7 million, and adjusted EBITDA was $7.9 million versus $10.6 million in last year's six-month period. 

Management Commentary
Kevin Longe, president and CEO, said, "Our second quarter top-line results were an improvement over the first quarter, and reflect the continued strong performance of DynaEnergetics. Demand for DynaEnergetics' DynaSelect switch detonator remains strong, particularly in North America, and helped elevate Oilfield Products sales to a quarterly record." 

During the second quarter, DynaEnergetics made another major product introduction: the DynaStage gun system. DynaStage, which incorporates the DynaSelect detonator technology, is a customizable perforating gun that is delivered to the well site pre-assembled and pre-wired, thereby significantly enhancing the efficiency and safety of the perforating process. "Customers responded very favorably to this product when we introduced it in May at the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston," Longe said. "We are actively educating our customer base on the DynaStage system, and expect to launch commercial production later this year. Both DynaSelect and DynaStage illustrate the strength of DynaEnergetics' research and development team, which has established us as a global leader in well perforating technology."

Longe said NobelClad's roster of prospective orders has expanded during the past quarter, and includes an increasing number of projects in the global oil and gas and chemical sectors. "The breadth of projects NobelClad is tracking suggests capital spending within its two largest end markets may be picking up. This represents an encouraging development; and while order activity could remain somewhat variable during the near term, we are optimistic the longer-range trend will be much improved."

Longe noted the Company's free cash flow during the first half of the year was below management's performance objectives. "Cash flow was negatively affected by a variety of non-recurring items, including investments in DynaSelect detonator inventory and cladding materials with long lead times. We expect much stronger results going forward and are managing the Company and its businesses accordingly. Our sharpened focus on cash generation should become evident during the balance of this year." 

Guidance
Michael Kuta, chief financial officer, said management has maintained its prior 2014 financial guidance of revenue that is expected to be flat to up 4% versus the $209.6 million reported in 2013. Gross margin is now expected to be in the range of 29% to 30% versus the prior forecast of 29% to 31% and 28% reported in 2013. The Company's blended effective tax rate for fiscal 2014 is expected to range from 29% to 30% based on projected pre-tax income. 

For the third quarter, management anticipates sales will be up 1% to 3% from the $54.3 million reported in last year's third quarter. Third quarter gross margin is expected to be in a range of 27% to 29% versus the 31% reported in last year's third quarter. The expected gross margin decline reflects the anticipated third quarter results of NobelClad, which is forecasting a dip in sales and less favorable product mix, both of which are expected to improve in the fourth quarter.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Non-GAAP results are presented only as a supplement to the financial statements based on U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The non-GAAP financial information is provided to enhance the reader's understanding of DMC's financial performance, but no non-GAAP measure should be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of the most directly comparable GAAP measures to non-GAAP measures are provided within the schedules attached to this release.

EBITDA is defined as net income plus or minus net interest plus taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA excludes from EBITDA stock-based compensation and, when appropriate, other items that management does not utilize in assessing DMC's operating performance (as further described in the attached financial schedules). None of these non-GAAP financial measures are recognized terms under GAAP and do not purport to be an alternative to net income as an indicator of operating performance or any other GAAP measure.

Management uses these non-GAAP measures in its operational and financial decision-making, believing that it is useful to eliminate certain items in order to focus on what it deems to be a more reliable indicator of ongoing operating performance. As a result, internal management reports used during monthly operating reviews feature the adjusted EBITDA. In addition, during 2014 DMC management incentive awards will be based, in part, on the amount of EBITDA achieved during the year. Management also believes that investors may find non-GAAP financial measures useful for the same reasons, although investors are cautioned that non-GAAP financial measures are not a substitute for GAAP disclosures. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are also used by research analysts, investment bankers and lenders to assess operating performance. For example, a measure similar to EBITDA is required by the lenders under DMC's credit facility.

Because not all companies use identical calculations, DMC's presentation of non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. However, these measures can still be useful in evaluating the company's performance against its peer companies because management believes the measures provide users with valuable insight into key components of GAAP financial disclosures. For example, a company with greater GAAP net income may not be as appealing to investors if its net income is more heavily comprised of gains on asset sales. Likewise, eliminating the effects of interest income and expense moderates the impact of a company's capital structure on its performance.

All of the items included in the reconciliation from net income to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are either (i) non-cash items (e.g., depreciation, amortization of purchased intangibles and stock-based compensation) or (ii) items that management does not consider to be useful in assessing DMC's operating performance (e.g., income taxes and gain on sale of assets). In the case of the non-cash items, management believes that investors can better assess the company's operating performance if the measures are presented without such items because, unlike cash expenses, these adjustments do not affect DMC's ability to generate free cash flow or invest in its business. For example, by adjusting for depreciation and amortization in computing EBITDA, users can compare operating performance without regard to different accounting determinations such as useful life. In the case of the other items, management believes that investors can better assess operating performance if the measures are presented without these items because their financial impact does not reflect ongoing operating performance.
