PITTSBURGH, PA, NOVEMBER 19, 2020 - Matthews International Corporation (NASDAQ GSM: MATW) today announced financial results for its fiscal 2020 fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2020.

In discussing the Company’s results for the quarter, Joseph C. Bartolacci, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: “We had a strong finish to fiscal 2020 and we believe the Company performed very well on a consolidated basis in this difficult environment. For the current quarter, the Company reported growth in consolidated sales, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted earnings per share compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020, we generated record operating cash flow for the Company, despite the challenges of the pandemic, which allowed us to repay over $100 million of debt in fiscal 2020.

“Sales and adjusted EBITDA for the Memorialization segment were higher during the fiscal 2020 fourth quarter compared to a year ago driven by strong sales of caskets, cemetery memorial products and cremation equipment. An increase in deaths, primarily resulting from the impact of COVID-19, was the principal factor in the year-over-year sales growth. Sales for the Industrial Technologies segment were lower than a year ago, primarily reflecting lower warehouse automation sales. However, order rates for these solutions remained strong and, while COVID-19 unfavorably impacted access to customer sites to deliver these solutions during the current quarter, we are beginning fiscal 2021 with a record backlog level.
