With our more balanced portfolio and the momentum we are generating with our growth initiatives, we have meaningfully changed the growth trajectory of our company heading into 2022.”

Third Quarter 2021

Worldwide net sales were $473.2 million, 22 percent higher than the prior year and 4 percent higher sequentially. The acquisition of Normerica, completed on July 26, 2021, contributed sales of $20.0 million, or 5 percent growth versus the prior year and 4 percent growth sequentially. Organic growth for the company was 17 percent versus the prior year and flat sequentially. Foreign exchange had a favorable impact on sales of approximately $6 million, or 2 percent versus the prior year.

Operating income was $60.6 million, or $63.2 million excluding special items. Operating income excluding special items grew 23 percent versus the prior year and was relatively flat versus the second quarter. Operating margin was 12.8 percent, or 13.4 percent excluding special items.

Cash flow from operations was $163.1 million year-to-date compared with $148.4 million in the prior year, a 10 percent improvement. Capital expenditures were $63.0 million year-to-date versus $45.8 million in the prior year, as the company continued to invest in high-return growth opportunities. The company used a portion of free cash flow to repurchase $63 million of shares year-to-date, and completed the share repurchase authorization from the prior year. The Board of Directors authorized a new $75 million 1-year share repurchase program on October 20, 2021.

Segment Information

Performance Materials segment sales were $250.4 million in the third quarter, 23 percent higher than the prior year and 5 percent higher sequentially.

Household, Personal Care & Specialty Products sales were 30 percent above the prior year. The acquisition of Normerica contributed 21 percent growth versus the prior year and organic sales contributed an additional 9 percent, as demand for this product line’s consumer-oriented portfolio remained strong. Sales were 19 percent higher sequentially, primarily driven by the acquisition.

Metalcasting sales were 10 percent higher than the prior year, driven by stronger demand globally and continued penetration of greensand bond technologies in Asia. Sales were 9 percent lower sequentially as foundry customers took typical seasonal outages, and in some cases, foundry demand was impacted by supply chain challenges.

Environmental Products sales grew 32 percent versus the prior year on improved demand for environmental lining systems, remediation, and wastewater treatment. Building Materials sales grew 18 percent versus the prior year and 3 percent sequentially on higher levels of project activity.

Operating income for the segment was $32.0 million, or $32.6 million excluding special items. Operating margin excluding special items was 13.0 percent of sales. Margin was temporarily impacted by unfavorable product mix, the timing of pricing actions relative to cost increases, as well as the incremental sales from Normerica. The company has stated that the Normerica acquisition will be income accretive beginning in the fourth quarter 2021 as integration activities continue.

The Performance Materials segment provides a wide range of bentonite-based and synthetic materials for industrial and consumer-oriented 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 $146.9 million in the third quarter, 17 percent higher than the prior year and 3 percent higher sequentially.

PCC sales grew 17 percent versus the prior year and 3 percent sequentially on recovering Paper PCC demand, the continued ramp-up of three new satellite plants, and higher SPCC demand from automotive, construction, and consumer end markets. PCC is used in paper and packaging, automotive and construction sealants, and the food and pharmaceutical industries.

Processed Minerals sales grew 18 percent versus the prior year and 2 percent sequentially on continued strength in residential construction and consumer end markets. 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 $17.3 million, or $18.4 million excluding special items. Operating margin excluding special items was 12.5 percent of sales and was impacted by the timing of contractual and negotiated price increases relative to cost increases.

Refractories segment sales were $75.9 million in the third quarter, 28 percent higher than the prior year and 2 percent higher sequentially as demand remained strong for Refractory and Metallurgical Products.

Segment operating income was $13.2 million, 81 percent higher than the prior year and 13 percent higher sequentially. Operating margin was strong at 17.4 percent of sales. The Refractories segment provides products and services primarily to the worldwide steel industry.

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.

5 ) Free cash flow is defined as cash flow from continuing operations less capital expenditures. The following is a presentation of the Company's non-GAAP free cash flow for the quarterly periods ended October 3, 2021, July 4, 2021 and September 27, 2020 and the nine month periods ended October 3, 2021 and September 27, 2020 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 October 3, 2021, July 4, 2021 and September 27, 2020, and the nine month periods ended October 3, 2021 and September 27, 2020 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.
