BOULDER, Colo., Feb. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DMC Global Inc. (Nasdaq: BOOM) today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2018.

Fourth quarter sales were a record $90.3 million, up 3% sequentially versus the 2018 third quarter, and a 66% increase versus the 2017 fourth quarter. The results, which exceeded management’s forecasted range of $82 million to $85 million, were principally driven by the accelerated production and delivery of a large chemical-industry order at NobelClad, DMC’s composite metals business.  NobelClad also reported stronger-than-expected book-and-ship activity.

Gross margin was 35% versus 34% in the third quarter and 33% in the year-ago fourth quarter. The results were above a forecasted range of 33% to 34% primarily due to a more profitable project mix at NobelClad and improved factory productivity at DynaEnergetics.

Fourth quarter operating income was $13.1 million versus $513,000 in last year’s fourth quarter. Net income was $15.3 million, or $1.02 per diluted share, versus a net loss of $2.0 million, or a loss of $0.13 per diluted share, in the prior-year fourth quarter.

Adjusted operating income*, which excludes $561,000 in restructuring charges related to the final phase of NobelClad’s European consolidation program, was $13.6 million. Adjusted net income*, which excludes the restructuring charges and the impact of non-cash tax valuation allowances, was $7.0 million, or $0.46 per diluted share.

Fourth quarter adjusted EBITDA, which includes $2.5 million in litigation expenses, was $16.9 million versus $17.2 million in the 2018 third quarter and $7.7 million in last year’s fourth quarter.

Total debt at December 31, 2018, was $41.4 million and the Company’s debt-to-adjusted EBITDA leverage ratio was 0.70. Net debt* (total debt less cash and cash equivalents) was $28.0 million versus $30.4 million at the end of the 2018 third quarter and $9.0 million at December 31, 2017.

Management Commentary
“The exceptional effort and execution by our teams at DynaEnergetics and NobelClad enabled DMC to deliver record financial results for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year,” said Kevin Longe, president and CEO.  “It was an encouraging finish to a year that included a number of important strategic and operational accomplishments.

“During the fourth quarter alone, DynaEnergetics completed its new manufacturing, assembly and administrative facility in Blum, Texas; added several new customers; successfully defended itself in a third consecutive patent-infringement case and resolved two related patent litigation claims; and concluded a prolonged anti-dumping case.  Concurrently, NobelClad completed a multi-year consolidation of its European manufacturing operations, shipped the third of three large orders executed in 2018, and commenced a strategic distribution partnership that expands its opportunities in the composite-metals market.”

Longe continued, “Despite continued soft crude-oil prices, customer demand for DynaEnergetics’ Factory-assembled, Performance-assured™ DynaStage™ perforating system remained strong.  DynaStage is a unique system when compared to other pre-loaded perforating guns that recently have entered the market. A primary point of differentiation is our intrinsically safe initiating system, which combines a detonator, microelectronics and an addressable switch, all in a compact, wireless unit that can be installed in seconds. Customers have reported significant improvements in well-site efficiency due to the simplicity of the arming and gun-string assembly process. In addition, because the system is intrinsically safe, customers can surface test the entire gun string, including all switches and detonators, before deploying the string down hole.  This has enabled an industry-leading reliability rate that exceeds 99.9%.

“DynaEnergetics recently completed successful field trials on its new DS Trinity™ system – a key addition to the DynaStage family.  The three shaped charges in DS Trinity are aligned on a single plane, and at 8-inches in length, the system is up to 3.5 times shorter than conventional perforating guns.  DynaEnergetics intends to release a 4-inch diameter version of DS Trinity in this year’s second quarter, and a 3 ½-inch diameter version shortly thereafter.

“Our accomplishments during 2018 have enabled us to shift our focus to our primary business objectives: develop differentiated products and applications that improve our customers’ operational and financial performance; and continue to expand the presence of our businesses in their respective markets. We have entered 2019 a stronger company than at any point in our history, and I am encouraged by our prospects for continued growth and positive returns for our stakeholders.”

Guidance
Michael Kuta, CFO, said first quarter 2019 sales are expected to be in a range of $82 million to $85 million versus the $67.3 million reported in the 2018 first quarter. At the business level, DynaEnergetics is expected to report sales in a range of $64 million to $67 million versus the $49.1 million reported in last year’s first quarter, while NobelClad’s sales are expected to be approximately $18 million versus the $18.2 million reported in last year’s first quarter. Gross margin is expected to be approximately 34% versus 34% in last year’s first quarter.

First quarter selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expense is expected to be approximately $16.5 million versus the $13.4 million reported in the 2018 first quarter, while amortization expense is expected to be approximately $400,000.

Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in a range of $14 million to $15 million versus $11.6 million in last year’s first quarter.

For fiscal 2019, consolidated sales are expected in a range of $350 million to $370 million versus the $326.4 million reported in 2018. Sales at DynaEnergetics are expected in a range of $270 million to $285 million versus the $237.4 million reported in 2018, while NobelClad’s sales are expected in a range of $80 million to $85 million versus the $89.0 million in 2018. Full-year gross margin is expected in a range of 34% to 35% versus the 34% reported in 2018.

Kuta said full-year SG&A should be $60 million to $64 million versus the $61.2 million reported in 2018. The increase relates to an expected step-up in spending on sales and marketing programs at both DynaEnergetics and NobelClad.  Full-year amortization expense is expected to be approximately $1.6 million versus the $2.9 million reported in 2018. The decline reflects the full amortization of a portion of DynaEnergetics’ intangible asset balance. 

Interest expense in 2019 is expected to be in a range of $2.0 million to $2.25 million. The effective tax rate for 2019 is expected to be approximately 30%.

Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in a range of $73 million to $78 million, up from 2018 adjusted EBITDA of $59.6 million. Full-year adjusted net income per share is expected in a range of $2.50 to $2.70 versus the $2.07 reported in fiscal 2018.

Capital expenditures in 2019 are expected to be in the range of $25 million to $30 million.

*Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted operating income (loss), adjusted net income (loss), adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share, and net debt are non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) financial measures used by management to measure operating performance and liquidity. Non-GAAP results are presented only as a supplement to the financial statements based on U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The non-GAAP financial information is provided to enhance the reader's understanding of DMC’s financial performance, but no non-GAAP measure should be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of the most directly comparable GAAP measures to non-GAAP measures are provided within the schedules attached to this release.

EBITDA is defined as net income plus or minus net interest plus taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA excludes from EBITDA stock-based compensation, restructuring and impairment charges and, when appropriate, other items that management does not utilize in assessing DMC’s operating performance (as further described in the attached financial schedules). Adjusted operating income (loss) is defined as operating income (loss) plus restructuring and impairment charges and, when appropriate, other items that management does not utilize in assessing DMC’s operating performance. Adjusted net income (loss) is defined as net income (loss) plus restructuring and impairment charges and, when appropriate, other items that management does not utilize in assessing DMC’s operating performance. Adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share is defined as diluted earnings (loss) per share plus restructuring and impairment charges and, when appropriate, other items that management does not utilize in assessing DMC’s operating performance. Net debt is defined as lines of credit less cash and cash equivalents. None of these non-GAAP financial measures are recognized terms under GAAP and do not purport to be an alternative to net income as an indicator of operating performance or any other GAAP measure.

Management uses adjusted EBITDA in its operational and financial decision-making, believing that it is useful to eliminate certain items in order to focus on what it deems to be a more reliable indicator of ongoing operating performance. As a result, internal management reports used during monthly operating reviews feature adjusted EBITDA measures. Management believes that investors may find this non-GAAP financial measure useful for similar reasons, although investors are cautioned that non-GAAP financial measures are not a substitute for GAAP disclosures. In addition, management incentive awards are based, in part, on the amount of adjusted EBITDA achieved during relevant periods. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are also used by research analysts, investment bankers and lenders to assess operating performance. For example, a measure similar to adjusted EBITDA is required by the lenders under DMC’s credit facility.

Net debt is used by management to supplement GAAP financial information and evaluate DMC’s performance, and management believes this information may be similarly useful to investors. Adjusted operating income (loss), adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share are presented because management believes these measures are useful to understand the effects of restructuring and impairment charges on DMC’s operating income (loss), net income (loss) and diluted earnings (loss) per share, respectively.

Because not all companies use identical calculations, DMC’s presentation of non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. However, these measures can still be useful in evaluating the company’s performance against its peer companies because management believes the measures provide users with valuable insight into key components of GAAP financial disclosures. For example, a company with greater GAAP net income may not be as appealing to investors if its net income is more heavily comprised of gains on asset sales. Likewise, eliminating the effects of interest income and expense moderates the impact of a company's capital structure on its performance.

All of the items included in the reconciliation from net income to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are either (i) non-cash items (e.g., depreciation, amortization of purchased intangible assets and stock-based compensation) or (ii) items that management does not consider to be useful in assessing DMC’s operating performance (e.g., income taxes, restructuring and impairment charges). In the case of the non-cash items, management believes that investors can better assess the company’s operating performance if the measures are presented without such items because, unlike cash expenses, these adjustments do not affect DMC's ability to generate free cash flow or invest in its business. For example, by adjusting for depreciation and amortization in computing EBITDA, users can compare operating performance without regard to different accounting determinations such as useful life. In the case of the other items, management believes that investors can better assess operating performance if the measures are presented without these items because their financial impact does not reflect ongoing operating performance.
