NEW YORK, Feb. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Minerals Technologies Inc. (NYSE: MTX) (“MTI” or “the Company”) today reported diluted earnings per share of $1.25, excluding special items, for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2021, compared with $1.08 in the prior year. Reported diluted earnings per share were $1.23 compared with $0.91 in the prior year.

For the full year 2021, the Company reported earnings per share of $5.02, excluding special items, compared with $3.99 in the prior year. Reported earnings per share were $4.86 compared with $3.29 for the full year 2020.

“The global MTI team performed very well on all fronts in 2021 and overcame significant external challenges to deliver record sales and earnings for the full year,” said Douglas T. Dietrich, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We significantly advanced our key growth initiatives, strengthened our consumer-oriented portfolio with the acquisition of Normerica, and made substantial progress against our sustainability goals.”

Mr. Dietrich added, “This progress has transformed the company’s ability to generate more balanced and stable growth. While we faced significant logistics and inflationary challenges, the actions we have taken and have in place, along with robust demand across our product lines, set us up for a year of strong profitable growth in 2022.”

Fourth Quarter 2021

Worldwide net sales were $476.9 million, up 1 percent sequentially and 10 percent above the prior year. Reported operating income was $52.6 million. Operating income excluding special items was $54.7 million and represented 11.5 percent of sales. Operating income in the fourth quarter was impacted by approximately $5 million of unexpected logistics, labor, and operational challenges, including higher energy costs, which the Company expects to recover in the first quarter of 2022.

Cash flow from operations was $69.3 million and free cash flow was $46.3 million. The Company repaid $20 million of debt and repurchased $12 million of shares in the quarter.

Segment Information

Performance Materials segment sales were $256.2 million in the fourth quarter, up 2 percent sequentially and 17 percent above the prior year.

Household, Personal Care & Specialty Products sales increased 4 percent sequentially and 24 percent versus the prior year, driven by the acquisition of Normerica and continued strong demand for consumer-oriented products. Metalcasting sales increased 16 percent sequentially and 9 percent versus the prior year as foundry demand remained strong in North America and Asia. Environmental Products and Building Materials sales grew 13 percent and 21 percent versus the prior year, respectively, on higher levels of project activity. Sales in these product lines were lower sequentially due to typical seasonality.

Segment operating income excluding special items was $29.1 million and operating margin was 11.4 percent of sales. Operating margin was impacted by logistics challenges, the timing of price increases relative to continued inflationary cost increases, as well as seasonally higher mining and operating costs.

The Performance Materials segment provides a wide range of bentonite-based and synthetic materials for consumer-oriented and industrial markets and for non-residential construction, environmental remediation, and infrastructure projects worldwide.

Specialty Minerals segment sales, which consist of Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) Products and Processed Minerals Products, were $141.5 million in the fourth quarter, 4 percent lower sequentially and 2 percent above the prior year.

PCC sales were 3 percent lower sequentially and 2 percent above the prior year on stable demand for paper, packaging, and specialty PCC applications. PCC is used in paper and packaging, automotive and construction sealants, and the food and pharmaceutical industries.

Processed Minerals sales were 6 percent lower sequentially and 2 percent above the prior year, as continued strong demand mostly offset typical construction market seasonality. Processed Minerals products are used in the building materials, polymers, ceramics, consumer products, paints and coatings, glass, and other manufacturing industries.

Segment operating income was $14.5 million and represented 10.2 percent of sales. Operating margin was impacted by the timing of contractual and negotiated price increases relative to continued inflationary cost increases, including higher energy costs – particularly in Europe. In addition, logistics and labor challenges impacted both sales and operating performance.

Refractories segment sales were $79.2 million in the fourth quarter, up 4 percent sequentially and 7 percent higher than the prior year on new business volumes and continued strong steel market conditions in North America and Europe.

Segment operating income was $12.4 million and represented 15.7 percent of sales. The Refractories segment provides products and services primarily to the worldwide steel industry.

Full Year 2021

Worldwide net sales were $1,858.3 million, 17 percent above the prior year. Foreign exchange favorably impacted sales by $27 million, or 2 percentage points. Reported operating income was $235.7 million. Operating income excluding special items was $240.7 million and represented 13.0 percent of sales.

Cash flow from operations was $232.4 million. Capital expenditures were $86.0 million as the Company invested in high-return growth, productivity, and sustaining projects. Free cash flow was $146.4 million. The Company used a portion of free cash flow to repurchase $75 million of shares, completing the prior year share repurchase authorization and beginning the new $75 million 1-year share repurchase program that the Board of Directors authorized on October 20, 2021.

Segment Information

Performance Materials segment sales were $976.0 million, 18 percent above the prior year.

Household, Personal Care & Specialty Products sales increased 21 percent. The acquisition of Normerica contributed 13 percent growth versus the prior year and organic sales contributed an additional 8 percent, as demand for consumer-oriented products remained strong. Metalcasting sales grew 24 percent on strength across a diverse set of foundry customer end markets and continued penetration in Asia. Environmental Products and Building Materials sales grew 4 percent and 7 percent, respectively, on higher levels of project activity.

Segment operating income excluding special items was $126.2 million, up 16 percent versus the prior year, and operating margin was 12.9 percent of sales.

Specialty Minerals segment sales were $578.9 million, 13 percent above the prior year.

PCC sales increased 13 percent on the ramp-up of new paper and packaging volumes and strong demand for specialty PCC in construction, automotive, and consumer markets.

Processed Minerals sales increased 14 percent, driven by strength in residential construction and automotive markets.

Segment operating income excluding special items was $74.0 million, 2 percent lower than the prior year. Operating margin was 12.8 percent of sales and was impacted by the timing of contractual and negotiated price increases relative to inflationary cost increases. In addition, logistics and labor challenges impacted both sales and operating performance.

Refractories segment sales were $303.4 million, 18 percent higher than the prior year.

Segment operating income was a record at $49.3 million and represented 16.2 percent of sales. Sales and operating income benefited from improved steel market conditions, strong operating performance, and new business development.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED STATEMENTS OF INCOME

1) For comparative purposes, the quarterly periods ended December 31, 2021, October 3, 2021, December 31, 2020 each consisted of 89 days, 91 days and 95 days, respectively. The twelve month periods ended December 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020 consisted of 365 days and 366 days, respectively.

2) On a regular basis, the Company reviews its segments and the approach used by the chief decision maker to assess performance and allocate resources. Accordingly, in Q1 2021, in order to support MTI's key growth initiatives and more closely align complementary technologies, processes and capabilities, the Company reorganized the management structure for its Energy Services and Performance Materials operating segments to better reflect the way performance is evaluated and resources are allocated. As a result, Energy Services was combined into Environmental Products under the Performance Materials operating segment. Presented below are the restated financial results, by product line, for each of the quarters and full year 2020 of this operating segment to conform to the current management structure.

4) To supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the following is a presentation of the Company's non-GAAP earnings per share, excluding special items, for the quarterly periods ended December 31, 2021, October 3, 2021 and December 31, 2020, and the twelve month periods ended December 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020 and a reconciliation to reported earnings per share for such periods. The Company's management believes these non-GAAP measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance as inclusion of such special items are not indicative of the ongoing operating results and thereby affect the comparability of results between periods. The Company believes inclusion of these non-GAAP measures also provides consistency in its financial reporting and facilitates investors' understanding of historic operating trends.

5) Free cash flow is defined as cash flow from operations less capital expenditures. The following is a presentation of the Company's non-GAAP free cash flow for the quarterly periods ended December 31, 2021, October 3, 2021 and December 31, 2020 and the twelve month periods ended December 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020 and a reconciliation to cash flow from operations for such periods. The Company's management believes this non-GAAP measure provides meaningful supplemental information as management uses this measure to evaluate the Company's ability to maintain capital assets, satisfy current and future obligations, repurchase stock, pay dividends and fund future business opportunities. Free cash flow is not a measure of cash available for discretionary expenditures since the Company has certain non-discretionary obligations such as debt service that are not deducted from the measure. The Company's definition of free cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

To supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the following is a presentation of the Company's non-GAAP operating income, excluding special items for the quarterly periods ended December 31, 2021, October 3, 2021 and December 31, 2020, and the twelve month periods ended December 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020 constituting a reconciliation to GAAP operating income set forth above. The Company's management believe these non-GAAP measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance as inclusion of such special items are not indicative of ongoing operating results and thereby affect the comparability of results between periods. The Company believes inclusion of these non-GAAP measures also provides consistency in its financial reporting and facilitates investors' understanding of historic operating trends.
