Momentive Announces Second Quarter 2017 Results

08/08/17

Second Quarter Highlights:

  • Net sales of $594 million
  • Net income of $19 million, an increase of $29 million year-over-year
  • Segment EBITDA of $74 million, an increase of 12% year-over-year

WATERFORD, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 8, 2017-- MPM Holdings Inc. (“Momentive” or the “Company”) (OTCQX:MPMQ) today announced results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017.

“We are pleased to report strong results that reflect continued solid performance in our diversified specialty product portfolio and the benefits from our focus of making strategic investments to improve our operations and cost structure, transform our siloxane-based product lines, and support the growth of our specialty applications,” said Jack Boss, Chief Executive Officer and President. “During the second quarter of 2017 we saw year-over-year Segment EBITDA growth of 12% and a 4% increase in specialty volumes.”

Mr. Boss added: “Our integration of the Sea Lion Technology acquisition is completed and our NXT* capacity expansion underway at Leverkusen, Germany reinforces our focus on expanding our NXT* silane availability to serve our global automotive customers. As we look out into the balance of 2017, we see continued solid growth and positive fundamentals in the markets in which we operate.”

Second Quarter 2017 Results

Net Sales. Net sales for the three months ended June 30, 2017 were $594 million, an increase of 1% compared with $586 million in the prior-year period. The increase in net sales reflected improved product mix in specialty silicone products and higher quartz segment sales partially offset by intentionally lower volumes of siloxane derivative products primarily as a result of ceasing siloxane production at the Leverkusen facility.

Net income (loss). Net income for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $19 million compared to a net loss of $10 million in the prior year period.

Segment EBITDA. Segment EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $74 million, an increase of 12% compared with $66 million in the prior year period. The increase in Segment EBITDA was driven primarily by improved demand in automotive, consumer products, and electronics markets as well as production efficiencies, and raw material deflation in the silicones segment. In addition, the quartz business segment improved by $4 million due to improved sales, cost controls and substantially improved manufacturing efficiencies.

Segment Results

Following are net sales and Segment EBITDA by reportable segment for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017 and 2016. See “Non-U.S. GAAP Measures” and Schedule 4 to this release for further information regarding Segment EBITDA for a reconciliation of net (loss) income to Segment EBITDA.

Global Restructuring Program and Siloxane Production Transformation

As previously announced, Momentive’s global restructuring programs and siloxane production transformation are expected to generate approximately $48 million in annual savings. Cumulatively through June 30, 2017, Momentive has achieved $38 million of savings under this program.

Liquidity and Balance Sheet

At June 30, 2017, Momentive had net debt, which is total debt less cash and cash equivalents, of approximately $1.2 billion. In addition, at June 30, 2017, Momentive had approximately $342 million in liquidity, including $128 million of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents, and $214 million of availability under its senior secured asset-based revolving loan (“ABL”) facility. Momentive expects to have adequate liquidity to fund its operations for the foreseeable future from cash on its balance sheet, cash flows provided by operating activities and amounts available for borrowings under the ABL facility.

Non-U.S. GAAP Measures

Segment EBITDA is defined as EBITDA (earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization) adjusted for certain non-cash and certain other income and expenses. Segment EBITDA is an important measure used by the Company's senior management and board of directors to evaluate operating results and allocate capital resources among segments. Segment EBITDA should not be considered a substitute for net (loss) income or other results reported in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). Segment EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. See Schedule 4 to this release for a reconciliation of net income (loss) to Segment EBITDA.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted for certain non-cash and certain non-recurring items and other adjustments calculated on a pro-forma basis, including the expected future cost savings from business optimization or other programs and the expected future impact of acquisitions, in each case as determined under the governing debt instrument. As the Company is highly leveraged, the Company believes that including the supplemental adjustments that are made to calculate Adjusted EBITDA provides additional information to investors about the Company’s ability to comply with its financial covenants and to obtain additional debt in the future. Adjusted EBITDA is not a defined term under GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial condition, liquidity or profitability, and should not be considered as an alternative to net (loss) income determined in accordance with GAAP or operating cash flows determined in accordance with GAAP. Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for management's discretionary use, as it does not take into account certain items such as interest and principal payments on the Company’s indebtedness, depreciation and amortization expense (because the Company uses capital assets, depreciation and amortization expense is a necessary element of the Company’s costs and ability to generate revenue), working capital needs, tax payments (because the payment of taxes is part of the Company’s operations, it is a necessary element of the Company’s costs and ability to operate), non-recurring expenses and capital expenditures. Fixed Charges under the indentures should not be considered as an alternative to interest expense. See Schedule 5 to this release for a reconciliation of net (loss) income to Adjusted EBITDA and the calculation of the Adjusted EBITDA to Fixed Charges ratio.

Forward-Looking and Cautionary Statements

Certain statements in this press release are forward-looking statements within the meaning of and made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including statements related to our transformation and restructuring activities, growth and productivity initiatives, anticipated cost savings, growth, and market recovery, the impact of work stoppage and other incidents on our operations and competitiveness. In addition, our management may from time to time make oral forward-looking statements. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements may be identified by the words “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “project,” “plan,” “estimate,” “may,” “will,” “could,” “should,” “seek” or “intend” and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements reflect our current expectations and assumptions regarding our business, the economy and other future events and conditions and are based on currently available financial, economic and competitive data and our current business plans.

While we believe our assumptions are reasonable, we caution you against relying on any forward-looking statements as it is very difficult to predict the impact of known factors, and it is impossible for us to anticipate all factors that could affect our actual results.

All forward-looking statements are expressly qualified in their entirety by this cautionary notice. The forward-looking statements made by us speak only as of the date on which they are made.
