Ultra Clean Reports Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results

Delivers another quarter of strong top and bottom line performance

HAYWARD, Calif., July 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Ultra Clean Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: UCTT), a leading developer and supplier of critical systems and subsystems for the semiconductor capital equipment and flat panel industries, today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017.

"With elevated WFE spending challenging the supply chain, UCT once again delivered another exceptional quarter, exceeding both our top and bottom line expectations," said Jim Scholhamer, President and CEO. "Our focus on successfully fulfilling our customers' increasing demand resulted in opportunities to meet their increased manufacturing capacity needs. The flexibility of our operations and our ability to deliver in the current environment is providing high value to our customers worldwide and demonstrating the leverage of our operating model."  

GAAP Financial Results
Total revenue for the second quarter of 2017 was $228.3 million, an increase of 11.6% compared to the first quarter of 2017 and 75.8% compared to the same period a year ago. Semiconductor revenue increased 10.1% sequentially and 79.6% compared to a year ago. Total revenue from outside the U.S. rose 12.0% quarter over quarter and 102.5% year over year. Gross margin for the second quarter of 2017 was 19.0% compared to 18.3% for the prior quarter and 14.7% in the same period a year ago. Net income for the second quarter was $20.2 million, or $0.60 and $0.59 per basic and diluted share compared to net income of $14.3 million, or $0.43 and $0.42 per basic and diluted share in the previous quarter, and net income of $0.7 million, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share in the same period a year ago.

Net cash for the second quarter of 2017 increased $7.9 million compared to the previous quarter. Cash and cash equivalents were $59.5 million, an increase of $4.5 million compared to the first quarter. Outstanding debt was $60.8 million, a sequential decrease of $3.4 million

Non-GAAP Financial Results
Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2017 was $21.3 million, or $0.62 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share exclude pre-tax charges of $1.2 million for intangible assets amortization, offset by the corresponding increase in tax expense from these items of approximately $0.2 million. This compares to first quarter of 2017 non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share of $15.9 million and $0.47 respectively, and non-GAAP net income of $3.2 million and non-GAAP net income per share of $0.10 in the second quarter of 2016.

The Company has provided a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures in the financial statement tables included in this press release.

Third Quarter 2017 Outlook
The Company expects revenue to be between $235.0 million to $245.0 million and GAAP diluted net income per share to be in the range of $0.59 to $0.65. The Company expects non-GAAP net income per diluted share to be in the range of $0.62 to $0.68.

CEO to take Medical Leave of Absence
UCT also announced today that President and CEO, Jim Scholhamer, will be taking a leave of absence starting July 31 for approximately 2 months to address a treatable medical condition. During his absence, UCT SVP and CFO, Sheri Brumm will serve as acting CEO. Mr. Scholhamer will remain a member of the board of directors during his leave.

"It is important that I take this time to focus on my health and I am extremely confident that Sheri and our strong executive team will ensure the ongoing success of UCT while I am away," said Jim Scholhamer, President and CEO.

"The board has confidence in the strong leadership team that Jim has put in place. Sheri and the team are well positioned to continue to implement UCT's strategy and run day-to-day operations," commented Clarence Granger, Chairman of the Board of Directors.

Ms. Brumm joined UCT in April 2009 and has served as SVP and CFO since July 2016. She is responsible for all aspects of the Company's financial management in addition to managing the Company's IT and export compliance functions.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures
Management uses non-GAAP net income and net income per diluted share to evaluate the Company's operating and financial results. We believe the presentation of non-GAAP results is useful to investors for analyzing our core business and business trends and comparing performance to prior periods, along with enhancing investors' ability to view the Company's results from management's perspective. The presentation of this additional information should not be considered a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Tables presenting reconciliations of non-GAAP results to U.S. GAAP results are included at the end of this press release. A reconciliation of our guidance for non-GAAP net income per diluted share for the third quarter of 2017 is not available due to fluctuations in the geographic mix of our earnings from quarter to quarter, which impacts our tax rate and cannot be reasonably predicted or determined. As a result, such reconciliation is not available without unreasonable efforts and we are unable to determine the probable significance of the unavailable information.

Safe Harbor Statement
The foregoing information contains, or may be deemed to contain, "forward-looking statements" (as defined in the US Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995) which reflect our current views with respect to future events and financial performance. We use words such as "anticipates,", "projection", "outlook", "forecast", "believes," "plan," "expect," "future,"' "intends," "may," "will," "estimates," "predicts," and similar expressions to identify these forward-looking statements. Forward looking statements included in this press release include our expectations about the semiconductor capital equipment market and with respect to our third quarter 2017 outlook. All forward-looking statements address matters that involve risks and uncertainties. Accordingly, the Company's actual results may differ materially from the results predicted or implied by these forward-looking statements. These risks, uncertainties and other factors also include, among others, those identified in "Risk Factors", "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations'' and elsewhere in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 30, 2016 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and subsequently filed quarterly reports on Form 10-Q. Ultra Clean Holdings, Inc. undertakes no obligation to publicly update or review any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise unless required by law.
