DMC Global Inc. (Nasdaq: BOOM) today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

First quarter sales were $55.7 million, down 3% sequentially versus last year’s fourth quarter, and down 24% versus the first quarter of 2020. This year’s first quarter sales were negatively affected by continued weak energy demand associated with the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as a severe winter storm in Texas, both of which reduced sales at DynaEnergetics, DMC’s energy products business. Sales at NobelClad, DMC’s composite metals business, were negatively affected by $1.7 million in shipment delays resulting from widespread logistical bottlenecks in Europe and later-than-expected clad-plate inspections by a customer in the United States.

First quarter gross margin was 23% versus 21% in the 2020 fourth quarter and 33% in last year’s first quarter. Gross margin was impacted by a more favorable project mix at NobelClad, which partially was offset by one-time costs associated with a weather-related production shutdown at DynaEnergetics’ Blum, Texas facility.

First quarter operating loss was $710,000 versus operating income of $6.3 million in last year's first quarter. Net income was $432,000, or $0.03 per diluted share, versus net income of $4.2 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, in last year’s first quarter. Adjusted net income was $559,000, or $0.04 per diluted share.

First quarter adjusted EBITDA was $4.0 million versus $3.6 million in the 2020 fourth quarter, and $11.3 million in the 2020 first quarter.

In February, DMC repaid in full the outstanding $11.8 million balance on its term loan, and ended the first quarter with cash and marketable securities of $66.8 million, up from net cash* of $42.6 million at December 31, 2020. During the quarter, the Company raised net proceeds of $25.3 million through its at-the-market equity program.

DynaEnergetics First quarter sales at DynaEnergetics were $38.2 million, up 8% sequentially and down 28% from the 2020 first quarter. Gross margin was 22%, down from 24% in the fourth quarter of 2020 and 37% in last year’s first quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was $3.5 million versus $11.3 million in last year’s first quarter.

NobelClad First quarter sales at NobelClad were $17.5 million, down 20% sequentially and down 14% versus the 2020 first quarter. Gross margin was 26%, up from 18% in the 2020 fourth quarter and 25% in last year's first quarter. The gross margin improvement reflects a more favorable project mix. Adjusted EBITDA was $2.7 million, up from $2.4 million in last year’s first quarter.

NobelClad’s trailing 12-month book-to-bill ratio at the end of the first quarter was 1.01, and its rolling 12-month bookings were $81 million. Order backlog was $43.2 million versus $39.9 million at the end of the fourth quarter.

Management Commentary “The financial and operational strength of DMC continued to improve during the first quarter,” said Kevin Longe, president and CEO. “We closed the quarter with approximately $67 million in cash and marketable securities, zero long-term debt and the strongest financial position in Company history.

“Solid execution by the team at DynaEnergetics led to sales that were within our forecasted range, despite a nearly two-week weather-related sales disruption across our largest regional market. There is growing demand for our family of DS Factory-Assembled, Performance-Assured™ perforating systems; and as well-completion activity accelerates and the pricing environment continues to improve, we believe DynaEnergetics is well positioned to achieve meaningful sales growth and margin improvement beginning in the second quarter.

“DMC continues to foster an environment of creativity and innovation. At DynaEnergetics, our substantial investments in new technologies have resulted in a robust product portfolio that has improved the safety, efficiency and effectiveness of our customers’ operations; and has led to increased productivity, profitability and job creation in our industry. The significance of our investments is reflected in the 76 patents we have been granted and the more than 400 patent applications we have filed. Our patent strategy is designed to protect our investments and provide transparency so others can innovate without violating our intellectual property. Despite this, a number of competitors have commercialized products that we believe infringe on DynaEnergetics’ patents. During the first quarter, we took legal action against several of these companies, spending approximately $1 million on patent litigation. We intend to continue these expenditures until the issues are resolved. Our commitment of resources to this process reflects our belief that if intellectual property is not protected, the incentive to innovate is lost and the sustainability of the industry is threatened.”

Longe continued, “NobelClad closed the quarter with a $43 million order backlog, and the business is making significant progress on a variety of application and product-development initiatives. Despite recent shipping delays, we remain encouraged by the medium to long-term growth prospects at NobelClad.”   

“I am pleased with the continued progress of our businesses and by the improving outlook within our end markets,” Longe added. “DMC’s strong prospects for long-term growth are made possible by the skill and determination of our employees, and I’m extremely appreciative of their continued efforts and commitment to the Company.”

GuidanceMichael Kuta, CFO, said second quarter 2021 sales are expected to be in a range of $67 million to $72 million versus the $55.7 million reported in the 2021 first quarter. At the business level, DynaEnergetics is expected to report sales in a range of $44 million to $47 million versus the $38.2 million reported in the 2021 first quarter, while NobelClad’s sales are expected in a range of $23 million to $25 million versus the $17.5 million reported in the 2021 first quarter.

Consolidated gross margin is expected in a range of 25% to 26% versus 23% in the 2021 first quarter. Second quarter selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expense is expected to be in a range of $14 million to $15 million versus the $13.2 million reported in the 2021 first quarter, and reflects an anticipated $1.5 million in litigation expense at DynaEnergetics, continued investments in digital transformation, the resumption of business-related travel, and the restoration of variable compensation. Amortization expense is expected to be approximately $300,000, and interest expense is expected to be approximately $90,000.

Adjusted EBITDA is expected in a range of $6 million to $8 million versus the $4.0 million in the first quarter of 2021.

Second quarter capital expenditures are expected in a range of $2 million to $4 million.

*Use of Non-GAAP Financial MeasuresAdjusted EBITDA, adjusted operating income (loss), adjusted net income (loss), and net cash are non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) financial measures used by management to measure operating performance and liquidity. Non-GAAP results are presented only as a supplement to the financial statements based on U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The non-GAAP financial information is provided to enhance the reader’s understanding of DMC’s financial performance, but no non-GAAP measure should be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of the most directly comparable GAAP measures to non-GAAP measures are provided within the schedules attached to this release.

EBITDA is defined as net income plus or minus net interest plus taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA excludes from EBITDA stock-based compensation, restructuring and impairment charges and, when appropriate, other items that management does not utilize in assessing DMC’s operating performance (as further described in the attached financial schedules). Adjusted operating income (loss) is defined as operating income (loss) plus restructuring and impairment charges and, when appropriate, other items that management does not utilize in assessing DMC’s operating performance. Adjusted net income (loss) is defined as net income plus restructuring and impairment charges and, when appropriate, other items that management does not utilize in assessing DMC’s operating performance. Net cash is defined as cash and cash equivalents less total debt. None of these non-GAAP financial measures are recognized terms under GAAP and do not purport to be an alternative to net income as an indicator of operating performance or any other GAAP measure.

Management uses adjusted EBITDA in its operational and financial decision-making, believing that it is useful to eliminate certain items in order to focus on what it deems to be a more reliable indicator of ongoing operating performance. As a result, internal management reports used during monthly operating reviews feature adjusted EBITDA measures. Management believes that investors may find this non-GAAP financial measure useful for similar reasons, although investors are cautioned that non-GAAP financial measures are not a substitute for GAAP disclosures. In addition, management incentive awards are based, in part, on the amount of adjusted EBITDA achieved during relevant periods. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are also used by research analysts, investment bankers and lenders to assess operating performance. For example, a measure similar to adjusted EBITDA is required by the lenders under DMC’s credit facility.

Net cash is used by management to supplement GAAP financial information and evaluate DMC’s performance, and management believes this information may be similarly useful to investors. Adjusted operating income (loss) and adjusted net income (loss) are presented because management believes these measures are useful to understand the effects of restructuring and impairment charges on DMC’s operating income (loss) and net income (loss), respectively.

Because not all companies use identical calculations, DMC’s presentation of non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. However, these measures can still be useful in evaluating the company’s performance against its peer companies because management believes the measures provide users with valuable insight into key components of GAAP financial disclosures. For example, a company with greater GAAP net income may not be as appealing to investors if its net income is more heavily comprised of gains on asset sales. Likewise, eliminating the effects of interest income and expense moderates the impact of a company’s capital structure on its performance.

All of the items included in the reconciliation from net income to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are either (i) non-cash items (e.g., depreciation, amortization of purchased intangibles and stock-based compensation) or (ii) items that management does not consider to be useful in assessing DMC’s operating performance (e.g., income taxes, restructuring and impairment charges). In the case of the non-cash items, management believes that investors can better assess the company’s operating performance if the measures are presented without such items because, unlike cash expenses, these adjustments do not affect DMC’s ability to generate free cash flow or invest in its business. For example, by adjusting for depreciation and amortization in computing EBITDA, users can compare operating performance without regard to different accounting determinations such as useful life. In the case of the other items, management believes that investors can better assess operating performance if the measures are presented without these items because their financial impact does not reflect ongoing operating performance.
