Rogers Corporation Reports Second Quarter 2022 Results

CHANDLER, Ariz., August 03, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rogers Corporation (NYSE:ROG) today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2022.

"Rogers continued to deliver solid revenue growth in the second quarter led by sales in the EV/HEV, defense and portable electronics markets," stated Bruce D. Hoechner, Rogers' President and CEO. "Supply challenges and COVID-related demand disruptions in China tempered further sales growth and impacted gross margins. Inflationary pressures continued in Q2, but our commercial actions are mitigating rising raw material input costs. Longer-term, we continue to be very encouraged by the outlook for our growth markets, especially in the EV/HEV space, where demand remains robust and our investments to capitalize on the long-term growth opportunity are on track. We continue to look forward to the combination with DuPont and the many benefits this will provide to our employees, customers and other stakeholders."

Q2 2022 Summary of Results
Net sales of $252.0 million increased 1.5% versus the prior quarter resulting from commercial actions and higher demand in the EV/HEV, portable electronics and defense markets. Further sales growth continued to be tempered by lower demand from the downstream impacts of COVID restrictions in China, component shortages and availability of certain raw materials. AES net sales increased by 6.0% from growth in the EV/HEV and defense markets, partially offset by lower industrial market revenues. EMS net sales decreased by 4.7% resulting from lower industrial and EV/HEV revenues, partially offset by higher portable electronics market demand. Currency exchange rates unfavorably impacted total company net sales in the second quarter of 2022 by $4.0 million compared to prior quarter net sales.

Gross margin was 34.3%, compared to 34.4% in the prior quarter. The slight decrease in gross margin was primarily driven by lower throughput, resulting from raw material supply constraints. The decline in gross margin was partially offset by higher volume and commercial actions.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses decreased by $1.6 million from the prior quarter to $56.1 million. SG&A expenses declined due to lower costs associated with DuPont's proposed acquisition of Rogers and a decline in employee-related costs, partially offset by increased professional service fees.

GAAP operating margin of 9.3% increased by 130 basis points from the prior quarter, primarily due to lower SG&A expenses and an increase in other operating income. Adjusted operating margin of 12.1% decreased by 240 basis points versus the prior quarter.

GAAP earnings per diluted share were $0.94, compared to earnings per diluted share of $0.87 in the previous quarter. The increase in GAAP earnings was due to higher operating income, partially offset by an increase in tax expense. On an adjusted basis, earnings were $1.22 per diluted share compared to adjusted earnings of $1.53 per diluted share in the prior quarter.

Ending cash and cash equivalents were $225.3 million, an increase of $43.2 million versus the prior quarter. In the second quarter, proceeds from borrowings under the Company's revolving credit facility were $70.0 million, capital expenditures were $25.0 million and net cash provided by operating activities was $2.0 million. Working capital increased in the second quarter due to additional inventory for new production facilities and replenishing safety stock.

Transaction with DuPont
As previously announced on November 2, 2021, Rogers has entered into a definitive merger agreement to be acquired by DuPont for $277.00 per share in cash. As a result of the pending acquisition, Rogers will not hold an earnings call or provide forward-looking guidance. Rogers' shareholders approved the merger agreement at a special shareholder meeting held on January 25, 2022. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2022, subject to the satisfaction of other customary closing conditions, including receipt of certain regulatory approvals.

Reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP measures

Non-GAAP financial measures:

This earnings release includes the following financial measures that are not presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("GAAP"):

(1) Adjusted operating margin, which the Company defines as operating margin excluding acquisition-related amortization of intangible assets and discrete items, which are acquisition and related integration costs, gains or losses on the sale or disposal of property, plant and equipment, restructuring, severance, impairment and other related costs, UTIS fire and recovery charges, costs associated with the proposed DuPont acquisition, and the related income tax effect on these items (collectively, "discrete items");

(2) Adjusted net income, which the Company defines as net income excluding amortization of acquisition intangible assets and discrete items;

(3) Adjusted earnings per diluted share, which the Company defines as earnings per diluted share excluding amortization of acquisition intangible assets, and discrete items divided by adjusted weighted average shares outstanding - diluted;

(4) Adjusted EBITDA, which the Company defines as net income excluding interest expense, net, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, and discrete items;

(5) Adjusted EBITDA Margin, which the Company defines as the percentage that results from dividing Adjusted EBITDA by total net sales;

(6) Free cash flow, which the Company defines as net cash provided by operating activities less non-acquisition capital expenditures.

Management believes adjusted operating margin, adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per diluted share, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are useful to investors because they allow for comparison to the Company’s performance in prior periods without the effect of items that, by their nature, tend to obscure the Company’s core operating results due to potential variability across periods based on the timing, frequency and magnitude of such items. As a result, management believes that these measures enhance the ability of investors to analyze trends in the Company’s business and evaluate the Company’s performance relative to peer companies. Management also believes free cash flow is useful to investors as an additional way of viewing the Company's liquidity and provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting the Company's cash flows. However, non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation from, or as alternatives to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from, and should not be compared to, similarly named measures used by other companies. Reconciliations of the differences between these non-GAAP financial measures and their most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP are set forth below.
