Minerals Technologies Reports Third Quarter 2020 Earnings of $0.83 Per Share, or $0.92 Per Share, Excluding Special Items

October 29, 2020

Highlights:

  • Sales of $388 Million, a 9 Percent Increase Sequentially
  • Improving Demand Across Majority of End Markets
  • Continued Strength in Consumer-Oriented Products
  • Operating Margins Improved Sequentially and Versus Prior Year
  • Strong Cash Flow from Operations of $54 Million
  • Improved Financial Flexibility by Extending Debt Maturities and Increasing Liquidity

NEW YORK, Oct. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Minerals Technologies Inc. (NYSE: MTX) (“MTI” or “the Company”) today reported diluted earnings per share of $0.92, excluding special items, for the third quarter ended September 27, 2020, compared with $1.06 in the prior year. Reported diluted earnings per share were $0.83.

Worldwide net sales were $388.3 million, up 9 percent sequentially on improvement across several key end markets and 14 percent lower than the prior year. Foreign exchange had an unfavorable impact on sales of approximately $3 million or 1 percentage point. Reported operating income was $48.5 million and represented 12.5 percent of sales. Operating income excluding special items was $51.5 million and represented 13.3 percent of sales compared to 11.8 percent sequentially and 13.2 percent in the prior year. Cash from operations was $54.3 million.

"During the third quarter, we saw a noticeable improvement in demand across several of our key end markets, along with continued strength in our consumer-oriented products,” said Douglas T. Dietrich, Chief Executive Officer. “The actions we have taken over the last several quarters related to cost control, pricing, and productivity, combined with our pipeline of new products, helped drive higher sequential and year-over-year operating margins despite the challenging market environment. Meanwhile, we continued to generate sustained strong cash flow, and our financial position remains solid.”

Mr. Dietrich added, “We have an engaged global MTI team, and through their focus on operating safely and efficiently, as well as their disciplined execution, we are well-positioned to drive improved operational and financial performance as our markets recover."

The Company incurred special charges of $3.2 million after-tax in the third quarter, or $0.09 per share. The charges included a non-cash impairment of assets for a Paper PCC satellite facility at a U.S. paper mill, litigation expenses, and a non-cash pension settlement charge.

On June 30, 2020, the Company completed a $400 million private offering of 5.00 percent senior notes due 2028 at par. The Company used the net proceeds to repay $148 million of fixed rate term loans, $100 million of borrowings under its revolving credit facility, and the remainder for general corporate purposes. The private offering improved the Company’s financial flexibility by extending debt maturities and increasing liquidity.

Segment Information

Performance Materials and Specialty Minerals
Sales in the Minerals businesses, which include the Performance Materials and Specialty Minerals segments, were $315.7 million in the third quarter, up 11 percent sequentially and 10 percent lower than the prior year. Operating income for the Minerals businesses was $44.8 million and represented 14.2 percent of sales. Operating income, excluding special items, was $46.2 million and represented 14.6 percent of sales compared to 12.8 percent in the second quarter and 13.9 percent in the prior year.

Performance Materials segment sales were $190.6 million in the third quarter, up 10 percent sequentially and 8 percent lower than the prior year.

Metalcasting sales increased 26 percent sequentially and were 4 percent lower than the prior year as foundry production improved in North America and demand remained strong in China, where sales grew 11 percent sequentially and 20 percent versus the prior year. Household, Personal Care & Specialty Products sales remained resilient, up 7 percent sequentially and flat with the prior year on continued strong demand for consumer-oriented products. Environmental Products and Building Materials continued to experience COVID-19 related project delays, and sales remained below prior year levels.

Operating income for the segment was $28.2 million, up 34 percent sequentially and up 5 percent versus the prior year. Operating margin was 14.8 percent of sales versus 12.1 percent in the second quarter and 13.0 percent in the prior year. Continued pricing actions, strong cost control and expense reductions more than offset the operating income impact of lower sales versus the prior year.

The Performance Materials segment provides a wide range of bentonite-based and synthetic materials for industrial and consumer markets and for non-residential construction, environmental remediation, and infrastructure projects worldwide.

Specialty Minerals segment sales, which consist of the Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) and Processed Minerals product lines, were $125.1 million in the third quarter, up 14 percent sequentially and 13 percent lower than the prior year.

Worldwide sales of PCC, which is used in paper and packaging, automotive and construction sealants, and the food and pharmaceutical industries, increased 14 percent sequentially as paper mill capacity came back online in the U.S. and India following temporary COVID-19 related shutdowns. Paper PCC sales in China grew 11 percent sequentially and 18 percent over the prior year on continued penetration and strong customer demand. Specialty PCC sales increased 16 percent sequentially as automotive and construction demand improved through the quarter and consumer-oriented products remained strong.

Processed Minerals sales increased 13 percent sequentially as end markets steadily improved through the quarter. Processed Minerals products are used in the building materials, polymers, ceramics, consumer products, paints and coatings, glass, and other manufacturing industries.

Segment operating income was $16.6 million and represented 13.3 percent of sales. Operating income excluding special items was $18.0 million, up 18 percent sequentially and 17 percent below the prior year, and represented 14.4 percent of sales compared to 13.9 percent in the second quarter and 15.2 percent in the prior year. The impact from lower volume versus the prior year was partially offset by continued pricing actions and cost control.

Refractories and Energy Services
Sales in the Service businesses, which include the Refractories and Energy Services segments, were $72.6 million in the third quarter, 1 percent lower sequentially and 27 percent below the prior year. Operating income for the Service businesses was $7.3 million and represented 10.1 percent of sales.

Refractories segment sales were $59.3 million in the third quarter, up 6 percent sequentially as steel mill utilization rates gradually improved from second quarter levels in North America and Europe.

Segment operating income was $7.3 million and represented 12.3 percent of sales. The Refractories segment provides products and services primarily to the worldwide steel industry.

Energy Services segment sales were $13.3 million in the third quarter, down sequentially and versus the prior year due to customer project delays related to COVID-19 as well as significant weather-related shutdowns in the Gulf of Mexico. As a result, segment operating income was break-even for the third quarter. Energy Services offers a range of patented technologies, products and services for off-shore filtration and well testing to the worldwide oil and gas industry.

3 ) To supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the following is a presentation of the Company's non-GAAP earnings per share, excluding special items, for the quarterly periods ended September 27, 2020, June 28, 2020 and September 29, 2019, and the nine month periods ended September 27, 2020 and September 29, 2019 and a reconciliation to reported earnings per share for such periods. The Company's management believes these non-GAAP measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance as inclusion of such special items are not indicative of the ongoing operating results and thereby affect the comparability of results between periods. The Company believes inclusion of these non-GAAP measures also provides consistency in its financial reporting and facilitates investors' understanding of historic operating trends.

4 ) Free cash flow is defined as cash flow from operations less capital expenditures. The following is a presentation of the Company's non-GAAP free cash flow for the quarterly periods ended September 27, 2020, June 28, 2020 and September 29, 2019 and the nine month periods ended September 27, 2020 and September 29, 2019 and a reconciliation to cash flow from operations for such periods. The Company's management believes this non-GAAP measure provides meaningful supplemental information as management uses this measure to evaluate the Company's ability to maintain capital assets, satisfy current and future obligations, repurchase stock, pay dividends and fund future business opportunities. Free cash flow is not a measure of cash available for discretionary expenditures since the Company has certain non-discretionary obligations such as debt service that are not deducted from the measure. The Company's definition of free cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

To supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the following is a presentation of the Company's non-GAAP operating income, excluding special items for the quarterly periods ended September 27, 2020, June 28, 2020 and September 29, 2019, and the nine month periods ended September 27, 2020 and September 29, 2019 constituting a reconciliation to GAAP operating income set forth above. The Company's management believe these non-GAAP measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance as inclusion of such special items are not indicative of ongoing operating results and thereby affect the comparability of results between periods. The Company believes inclusion of these non-GAAP measures also provides consistency in its financial reporting and facilitates investors' understanding of historic operating trends.
