Materion Corporation Reports Record Quarterly Results and
Raises Full Year 2022 Outlook
MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio – April 28, 2022 - Materion Corporation (NYSE: MTRN) today reported first quarter financial results, provided updated 2022 earnings guidance, and shared an update on key strategic initiatives.
First Quarter 2022 Highlights
Net sales were $449.0 million; value-added sales increased year over year to a record $266.8 million, up 34%
Operating profit was $19.6 million; adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, depletion and amortization (EBITDA) was a record at $44.6 million, an increase of 49% and 160-basis point margin expansion year over year
Net income of $0.68 per share, diluted; record adjusted earnings per share (EPS) of $1.20, up 38% year over year; adjusted EPS with acquisition amortization of $1.08, up 32% versus prior year
Awarded significant expansion of precision clad strip business with approximately $40 million up-front customer investment
“I’m extremely proud of our talented team for continuing the momentum with a strong start to 2022, delivering another record quarter, meeting strong end market demand and realizing the benefits of organic outgrowth initiatives and strategic acquisitions,” Jugal Vijayvargiya, Materion President & Chief Executive Officer said. “With our sharp focus on operational excellence and pricing, we were able to deliver record sales and earnings, despite the inflationary environment and other challenges persisting in recent months.”
“We are accelerating our transformation into a leading provider of advanced materials solutions with the first full quarter of sales from the HCS-Electronic Materials acquisition delivering exceptional growth in the fast-growing semiconductor market,” Vijayvargiya continued. “Our broad organic initiatives continue to ramp meaningfully, also contributing strong growth in the quarter, and building solid demand for the future. Our customer-funded precision clad strip plant is nearly complete and on track to contribute meaningfully to our second half results. With the substantial progress so far and exceptional support our team has provided, the customer has made the decision to significantly expand capacity with us and further invest approximately $40 million in our new facility. This award underscores the confidence our customers have in us to support their continued growth and affirms our role as a critical partner in the development of innovative solutions for their most important technical challenges.”

Net sales for the first quarter of 2022 were $449.0 million, compared to $354.4 million in the prior year first quarter. Value-added sales of $266.8 million were a quarterly record, up 34% from the prior year. In addition to the benefit of the HCS-Electronic Materials acquisition, value-added sales were up 13% organically, driven by strong performance across several major end markets including semiconductor, energy, aerospace and industrial.
Operating profit for the first quarter was $19.6 million and net income was $14.0 million, or $0.68 per diluted share, compared to an operating profit of $19.7 million and net income of $16.8 million, or $0.81 per diluted share in the prior year period. Excluding acquisition and restructuring related costs as detailed in the attached tables, adjusted EBITDA was $44.6 million in the first quarter, another quarterly record and an increase of 49% versus the prior year period.
Adjusted net income was $24.9 million excluding acquisition amortization, or $1.20 per diluted share, an increase of 38% compared to $0.87 per share in the prior year period.
With continued strong end market demand, organic outgrowth resulting from our customer initiatives, and the full year impact of the HCS-Electronic Materials acquisition, we are raising the 2022 adjusted earnings per share guidance to the range of $5.50 to $5.90.
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. 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 earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, depletion and amortization (EBITDA), net income, and earnings per share, on a non-GAAP basis. As detailed in the above reconciliation and Attachment 6, we have adjusted the results for certain special items such as restructuring and cost reductions and merger and acquisition costs. 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.
