MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio – August 3, 2021 - Materion Corporation (NYSE: MTRN), a world leader in high performing advanced materials, today reported strong second quarter financial results and raised its 2021 outlook.

Second Quarter 2021 Highlights

Net sales were $371.0 million compared to $271.5 million in the prior year period; value-added sales increased 31% year on year to a record $207.9 million for the quarter

Operating profit of $20.7 million; adjusted earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) was $22.1 million, or 10.6% of value-added sales, a 260 basis point margin expansion year-over-year

Net income of $0.87 per share, diluted; adjusted earnings of $0.86 per share, an increase of 91% compared to $0.45 in the prior year period

Construction of new leading-edge manufacturing facility for customer funded engineered precision clad strip project nears completion; continuing to ship product from existing facility

Full Year 2021 Outlook

Full year outlook raised to $3.25 – $3.45, an increase of 65% versus prior year at the midpoint

“We posted exceptional results in the second quarter, with above market revenue growth, meaningful margin expansion and strong earnings,” said Jugal Vijayvargiya, President and Chief Executive Officer. “I am very proud of our team’s focus and dedication to serving our customers’ strong demand while continuing to execute on our key strategic initiatives. Based on our first half performance, continued market strength and a robust organic pipeline, we are increasing our outlook for the remainder of the year.”

Net sales for the second quarter were $371.0 million, compared to $271.5 million in the prior year period. Value-added sales of $207.9 million were a record for any quarter, up 31% from the prior year quarter. Strong performance across several key end markets, including semiconductor, automotive, industrial, and consumer electronics drove the value-added sales


Operating profit for the second quarter was $20.7 million, and net income was $17.9 million, or $0.87 per diluted share, compared to an operating profit of $7.6 million and net income of $5.8 million in the prior year period. Excluding special items, detailed in the attached tables, adjusted EBIT was $22.1 million in the second quarter, an increase of 73% versus the prior-year period. Strong commercial execution, favorable mix, and improved operating performance drove the increase.

Adjusted net income was $17.8 million, or $0.86 per diluted share, an increase of 91% compared to $0.45 per share in the prior year period.


We continue to see strength in our organic pipeline and good underlying demand across our end markets. Based on our first half performance and improved outlook, we expect adjusted earnings per diluted share in the third quarter to be in the range of $0.80 to $0.84 per share, an increase of 64% from the third quarter of 2020 at the midpoint. We are raising full-year 2021 adjusted earnings to $3.25 to $3.45 per diluted share. The midpoint of the revised guidance represents a 65% increase from the prior year.


It is not possible for the Company to identify the amount or significance of future adjustments associated with potential insurance and litigation claims, legacy environmental costs, acquisition and integration costs, certain income tax items, or other non-routine costs that the Company adjusts in the presentation of adjusted earnings guidance. These items are dependent on future events that are not reasonably estimable at this time. Accordingly, the Company is unable to reconcile without unreasonable effort the forecasted range of adjusted earnings guidance for the full year to a comparable GAAP range. However, items excluded from the Company's adjusted earnings guidance include the historical adjustments noted in Attachments 4 and 5 to this press release.

The cost of gold, silver, platinum, palladium, copper, ruthenium, iridium, rhodium, rhenium, and osmium is passed through to customers and, therefore, the trends and comparisons of net sales are affected by movements in the market price of these metals. Internally, management also reviews net sales on a value-added basis. Value-added sales is a non-GAAP financial measure that deducts the value of the pass-through metals sold from net sales. Value-added sales allows management to assess the impact of differences in net sales between periods or segments and analyze the resulting margins and profitability without the distortion of the movements in pass-through metal prices. The dollar amount of gross margin and operating profit is not affected by the value-added sales calculation. During the first half of 2021, the Company added ruthenium, iridium, rhodium, rhenium, and osmium to its definition of value-added sales as the costs of these materials are treated as pass-through. Prior period value-added sales amounts have been recast to reflect this change. The Company sells other metals and materials that are not considered direct pass throughs, and these costs are not deducted from net sales to calculate value-added sales.

The Company’s pricing policy is to pass the cost of these metals on to customers in order to mitigate the impact of price volatility on the Company’s results from operations. Value-added information is being presented since changes in metal prices may not directly impact profitability. It is the Company’s intent to allow users of the financial statements to review sales with and without the impact of the pass-through metals.

In addition to presenting financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this earnings release contains financial measures, including operating profit, segment operating profit, earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT), net income, and earnings per share, on a non-GAAP basis. As detailed in the above reconciliation and Attachment 4, we have adjusted the results for certain special items such as non-cash impairment charges, non-cash inventory adjustments, cost reduction initiatives (i.e., severance), COVID-19 related costs, merger and acquisition costs, certain foreign currency hedge gains, and certain discrete income tax items from the applicable GAAP financial measure. Internally, management reviews the results of operations without the impact of these costs in order to assess the profitability from ongoing activities. We are providing this information because we believe it will assist investors in analyzing our financial results and, when viewed in conjunction with the GAAP results, provide a more comprehensive understanding of the factors and trends affecting our operations.
