 Ultra Clean Announces Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2016 Financial Results
   Wednesday, February 22, 2017 4:05:00 PM ET

Ultra Clean Holdings, Inc. (UCTT ), a leading developer and supplier of critical systems and subsystems for the semiconductor capital equipment, flat panel, medical, energy and research industries, today reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 30, 2016.

"2016 was a year of extraordinary growth for UCT. Total revenue and semiconductor revenue reached record highs and together with continued focus on operational excellence resulted in a significantly improved bottom line," said Jim Scholhamer, President and CEO. "By expanding our capabilities beyond gas panels and keeping pace with exceptional market demand, we are creating an even stronger link with our customers and have been able to capitalize on new opportunities. We are well positioned to reach our longer-term revenue and profitability goals."

GAAP Financial Results Total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $174.5 million, an increase of 19.4% over the third quarter of 2016 and 68.8% from the same period a year ago. Semiconductor revenue increased 20.6% from the third quarter of 2016 and 60.7% from the same period a year ago. Total revenue from outside the U.S. rose 23.8% sequentially and 126.2% over the same period a year ago. Gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2016 was 17.0% compared with 16.1% for the prior quarter and 12.9% for the same period a year ago. Net income for the fourth quarter was $10.0 million, or $0.30 per share (basic and diluted), compared with net income of $2.6 million, or $0.08 per share (basic and diluted) in the previous quarter, and a net loss of $15.8 million, or $0.49 per share (basic and diluted) for the same period a year ago.

Net cash for the fourth quarter 2016 increased $6.7 million compared to the third quarter of 2016. Cash and cash equivalents were $52.5 million, an increase of $5.2 million compared with the third quarter of 2016. Outstanding debt was $67.8 million, a decrease of $1.5 million compared with the third quarter of 2016.

Total revenue for fiscal 2016 was $562.8 million, an increase of 20.0% from fiscal 2015. Semiconductor revenue increased 17.3% over 2015. Revenue outside the U.S. was 48.0% of total revenue in 2016 compared with 34.5% in 2015. Gross margin for 2016 was 15.4% compared with 15.1% for 2015. Net income for 2016 was $10.1 million, or $0.31 per basic share and $0.30 per diluted share compared with a net loss of $10.7 million, or $0.34 per share (basic and diluted) in 2015.

Non-GAAP Financial Results Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $12.0 million and non-GAAP net income per diluted share was $0.36. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share exclude pre-tax charges for intangible asset amortization, costs related to the closure of one of the Company’s U.S. facilities, impairment charges for obsolete equipment held for sale, as well as costs incurred to terminate a contractual obligation related to our 3D printing business in Singapore, offset by the corresponding increase in tax expense from these items. This compares to third quarter non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share of $5.7 million and $0.17, respectively, and non-GAAP net loss of $0.3 million and non-GAAP net loss per diluted share of $0.01 for the fourth quarter of 2015.

Non-GAAP net income for fiscal year 2016 was $21.4 million and non-GAAP net income per diluted share was $0.65. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share exclude: (i) pre-tax charges for intangible assets amortization, costs related to our executive transition, costs related to the closure of one of the Company’s U.S. facilities, impairment charges for obsolete equipment held for sale, as well as costs incurred to terminate a contractual obligation related to our 3D printing business in Singapore, offset by the corresponding increase in tax expense from these items and (ii) income tax expense related to the tax valuation allowances. This compares to prior fiscal year non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share of $10.2 million and $0.32, respectively.

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

First Quarter 2017 Outlook The Company expects revenue to be between $190.0 million to $197.0 million and GAAP net income per diluted share to be in the range of $0.37 to $0.42. The Company expects non-GAAP net income per diluted share to be in the range of $0.40 to $0.45.

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 first quarter of fiscal year 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.

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 achieving our longer-term revenue and profitability goals and with respect to our first 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 25, 2015 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and subsequently filed quarterly reports on Form 10-Q. Additional information will also be set forth in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 30, 2016.
