OM Group Announces Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results And Share Repurchases

CLEVELAND, Aug. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- OM Group, Inc. (NYSE: OMG) today announced financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2014. For the quarter, the Company reported adjusted pro forma EBITDA of $31 million, excluding the results of its divested Advanced Materials cobalt business and charges of $0.4 million related to cost-reduction actions. The Company also reported second quarter 2014 income from continuing operations of $0.16 per diluted share, or $0.28 per diluted share on an adjusted pro forma basis, and operating cash flows of $24 million. At June 30, 2014, the Company had $114 million of cash and no debt. Reconciliations of the Company's adjusted pro forma results to corresponding U.S. GAAP results are included in this press release.

During the quarter, the Company repurchased $10 million of its common shares. In 2013, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a share repurchase program of up to $50 million. Including $14 million of share repurchases in 2013, the Company has now returned a total of $24 million to shareholders under this program; at June 30, 2014, $26 million of availability remained under the authorization.

"In the second quarter we delivered impressive cash flow from operations, which supported recent share repurchases and the quarterly dividend we initiated this year," said Joe Scaminace, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of OM Group, Inc. "Sales and EBITDA increased over last year's second quarter and were higher sequentially from this year's first quarter.  However, business conditions are not developing as we expected."

Second quarter net sales were $298 million, or $254 million on a pro forma basis excluding the divested Advanced Materials business. Excluding Advanced Materials, sales were up slightly compared to the second quarter of 2013. Sales were higher in Magnetic Technologies due primarily to a stronger Euro versus the US Dollar and increased sales volumes, offset by lower rare earth price pass-throughs to customers. Battery Technologies net sales increased compared to the second quarter of 2013 due to increased sales volumes in medical applications. Sales in Specialty Chemicals were down compared to the second quarter of 2013 due to lower sales volumes, partly resulting from the Company's initiatives to focus on more-profitable products.

"We remain confident in the potential of our portfolio of businesses," said Mr. Scaminace. "However, it is clear that we need to take action to stay ahead of the pace of change in our key end markets.  European business conditions are not developing as expected, our growth initiatives are taking longer than expected to contribute to our results, and global electronics markets have been slower to recover than planned. As a result, we are reducing our near-term forecasts and taking actions to strengthen our operating capabilities and improve business performance."

The Company recently implemented leadership changes in its Magnetic Technologies business, as well as in its Electronic Chemicals and Advanced Organics product lines. Concurrently, the Company also began developing initiatives to improve business results across the enterprise. The immediate phase of these actions is expected to cost approximately $5-6 million and contribute savings of $3-4 million annually beginning in 2015.

In light of the factors noted above, the Company is now expecting approximately $120 million of adjusted pro forma EBITDA in 2014. This forecast excludes the results of the divested Advanced Materials business, costs related to business improvement initiatives and M&A.

Mr. Scaminace concluded, "Our long-term strategy to create shareholder value remains intact. Our operating capabilities, supported by our strengthened business leadership, continue to improve, our acquisition pipeline of complementary transactions is active, and we have ample financial resources to execute our strategy."

(a) For the six months ended June 30, 2013, because the reported loss from continuing operations is income on an adjusted
basis, we used diluted shares to calculate EPS.


In order to assist readers of our financial statements in understanding the operating results that the Company's management uses to evaluate the business, we are providing adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to OM Group, Inc. common stockholders and adjusted earnings per common share attributable to OM Group, Inc. common stockholders - assuming dilution, both of which are non-U.S. GAAP financial measures. We are also providing the amounts as pro forma adjusted to exclude the results of the divested Advanced Materials business.  The Company's management believes that these are important metrics in evaluating the performance of the Company's business, providing a baseline for evaluating and comparing our operating results and isolating the impact of certain items on our results. The table above presents a reconciliation of the Company's U.S. GAAP income from continuing operations attributable to OM Group, Inc. common stockholders - as reported to adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to OM Group, Inc. common stockholders and earnings per common share attributable to OM Group, Inc. common stockholders - assuming dilution, adjusted for both special items as identified in the table and to exclude the results of the divested Advanced Materials business. The non-U.S. GAAP financial information set forth in the table above should not be construed as an alternative to reported results determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
