Ichor Holdings, Ltd. Announces Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2019 Financial Results


Ichor Holdings, Ltd. (NASDAQ: ICHR), a leader in the design, engineering, and manufacturing of critical fluid delivery subsystems for semiconductor capital equipment, today announced fourth quarter and fiscal year 2019 financial results.

Highlights for the fourth quarter of 2019:

Highlights for fiscal year 2019:

"We are very pleased to report a strong finish to 2019, with fourth quarter revenues at the upper end of our expectations and up 23% sequentially," commented Jeff Andreson, chief executive officer of Ichor. "While the overall wafer fab equipment spending environment weakened in 2019 compared to a record 2018, our second-half momentum in terms of both revenue and earnings growth demonstrates our expanding share within our served markets and the resiliency and leverage of our variable operating model. Our sales in the second half of 2019 were up 24% from the first half, driven by a combination of our market share gains, an increase in shipments for EUV lithography, and by the beginning of an upturn in industry spending. Over the same period, earnings per share increased over 60%, demonstrating the strong operating leverage we can deliver as industry conditions rebound. We are encouraged by the continued strength of investments in the foundry and logic sectors, and the beginning of a recovery in memory capital spending ? both driving an expected very strong first quarter for Ichor and optimism for significant growth in revenue and earnings in 2020."

U.S. GAAP Financial Results Overview

For the fourth quarter of 2019, revenue was $189.4 million, net income was $8.0 million, and net income per diluted share ("diluted EPS") was $0.35. This compares to revenue of $154.5 million and $141.4 million, net income of $0.9 million and $3.5 million, and diluted EPS of $0.04 and $0.15, for the third quarter of 2019 and fourth quarter of 2018, respectively.

For fiscal year 2019, revenue was $620.8 million, net income was $10.7 million, and diluted EPS was $0.47. This compares to revenue of $823.6 million, net income of $57.9 million, and diluted EPS of $2.30 for fiscal year 2018.

Non-GAAP Financial Results Overview

For the fourth quarter of 2019, non-GAAP adjusted net income was $10.9 million and non-GAAP adjusted diluted EPS was $0.48. This compares to non-GAAP adjusted net income of $6.7 million and $7.3 million, and non-GAAP adjusted diluted EPS of $0.30 and $0.32, for the third quarter of 2019 and fourth quarter of 2018, respectively.

For the fiscal year 2019, non-GAAP adjusted net income was $28.3 million and non-GAAP adjusted diluted EPS was $1.25. This compares to non-GAAP adjusted net income of $75.1 million and non-GAAP adjusted diluted EPS of $2.99 for fiscal year 2018.

First Quarter 2020 Financial Outlook

For the first quarter of 2020, we expect revenue to be in the range of $220 to $235 million. We expect GAAP diluted EPS to be in the range of $0.41 to $0.51 and non-GAAP adjusted diluted EPS to be in the range of $0.64 to $0.74.

This outlook for non-GAAP adjusted diluted EPS excludes known charges related to amortization of intangible assets, share-based compensation expense, tax adjustments related to these non-GAAP adjustments, and non-recurring charges known at the time of providing this outlook. This outlook for non-GAAP adjusted diluted EPS excludes any items that are unknown at this time, such as non-recurring tax-related items or other unusual items which we are not able to predict without unreasonable efforts due to their inherent uncertainty.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Results

We ended the fourth quarter of 2019 with cash of $60.6 million, an increase of $30.4 million from the prior quarter and an increase of $16.8 million from December 28, 2018. The increase from the prior quarter was primarily due to operating cash flows of $32.1 million. The increase from December 28, 2018 was primarily due to operating cash flows of $57.2 million and net proceeds from the issuance of ordinary shares under our share-based compensation plans of $5.5 million, partially offset by net payments on long-term debt of $23.8 million, capital expenditures of $12.3 million, and cash paid for intangible assets of $8.1 million.

Our cash generated from operations of $57.2 million during 2019 consists of net income of $10.7 million, net non-cash charges of $24.2 million, and a decrease in our net operating assets and liabilities of $22.2 million. Non-cash charges of $24.2 million primarily consist of depreciation and amortization of $21.9 million and share-based compensation of $8.5 million, partially offset by an increase in our net deferred tax assets of $7.1 million. The decrease in our net operating assets and liabilities was primarily due to an increase in accounts payable of $68.0 million, partially offset by an increase in accounts receivable of $44.6 million.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Results

In addition to U.S. GAAP results, this press release also contains non-GAAP financial results, including non-GAAP gross profit, non?GAAP operating income, non-GAAP adjusted net income, and non-GAAP adjusted diluted EPS. These non-GAAP metrics exclude amortization of intangible assets, share-based compensation expense, non-recurring expenses including adjustments to the cost of goods sold, tax adjustments related to those non-GAAP adjustments, and non-recurring discrete tax items including tax impacts from releasing a valuation allowance related to foreign tax credits, to the extent they are present in gross profit, operating income, and net income. Tables showing these metrics on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis, with reconciliation footnotes thereto, is included at the end of this press release. Non-GAAP adjusted diluted EPS is defined as non-GAAP adjusted net income divided by weighted average diluted ordinary shares outstanding during the period.

Management uses non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP adjusted net income, and non-GAAP adjusted diluted EPS to evaluate our operating and financial results. We believe the presentation of non-GAAP results is useful to investors for analyzing business trends and comparing performance to prior periods, along with enhancing investors' ability to view our results from management's perspective.

Words such as "guidance," "expects," "intends," "projects," "plans," "believes," "estimates," "targets," "anticipates," "look forward," and similar expressions are used to identify these forward-looking statements.

Examples of forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding financial results for the fiscal fourth quarter of 2019, which are subject to adjustment in connection with the year-end audit and preparation of our annual report on Form 10?K, expected sales for the first quarter of 2020, as well as any other statement that does not directly relate to any historical or current fact. Forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and assumptions, which may not prove to be accurate. These statements are not guarantees and are subject to risks, uncertainties and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict. Many factors could cause actual results to differ materially and adversely from these forward-looking statements, including: (1) dependence on expenditures by manufacturers and cyclical downturns in the semiconductor capital equipment industry, (2) reliance on a very small number of original equipment manufacturers for a significant portion of sales, (3) negotiating leverage held by our customers, (4) competitiveness and rapid evolution of the industries in which we participate, (5) risks associated with weakness in the global economy and geopolitical instability, (6) keeping pace with developments in the industries we serve and with technological innovation generally, (7) designing, developing and introducing new products that are accepted by original equipment manufacturers in order to retain our existing customers and obtain new customers, (8) managing our manufacturing and procurement process effectively, (9) defects in our products that could damage our reputation, decrease market acceptance and result in potentially costly litigation, and (10) dependence on a limited number of suppliers. Additional information concerning these and other factors can be found in Ichor's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), including other risks, relevant factors and uncertainties identified in the "Risk Factors" section of Ichor's Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 8, 2019, and subsequent filings with the SEC.

All forward-looking statements in this press release are based upon information available to us as of the date hereof, and qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement.
