Momentive Announces Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2016 Results

March 07, 2017

Fourth Quarter Highlights

  • Net sales of  $544 million and net loss of $118 million 
  • Segment EBITDA of $65 million, an increase of 59% year-over-year
  • Recently completed the strategic acquisition of Sea Lion Technology, Inc. 

Fiscal Year 2016 Highlights

  • Net sales of $2.2 billion and net loss of $163 million
  • Segment EBITDA of $238 million, an increase of 23% year-over-year  
  • Operating cash flow of $142 million compared with $128 million in 2015


WATERFORD, N.Y. (March 7, 2017) - MPM Holdings Inc. (“Momentive” or the “Company”) (OTCQX: MPMQ) today announced results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2016.

 

“We are pleased to report strong fourth quarter and fiscal year 2016 results reflecting ongoing progress on our transformation initiatives,” said Jack Boss, Chief Executive Officer and President.  “In 2016, our results reflected meaningful product mix improvement.  While overall volume was lower due to intentional declines in our basics business, specialty volume was up 5 percent year-over-year, as we achieved gains in key portions of the specialty silicones portfolio driving EBITDA margin accretion.”   

 

Mr. Boss added:  “In the fourth quarter, we ceased siloxane production at our Leverkusen, Germany facility and have commenced sourcing related intermediates under long-term third-party contracts and from other Momentive global sites.  We view this as an important first step in transforming Momentive’s global siloxane footprint and expect this initiative will provide $10 million of run-rate savings.  We are also accelerating investments in our differentiated technologies and are on track to complete our flagship $30 million NXT* capacity expansion at Leverkusen later this year.  This investment, along with the recent acquisition of the operating assets of Sea Lion Technology, reinforces our strategy to expand our NXT silane availability to serve our global customers.  We enter 2017 with solid momentum and strong potential stemming from our growth initiatives, investments in operational reliability and our global restructuring program.” 


Fourth Quarter 2016 Results

Net Sales.  Net sales for the three months ended December 31, 2016 were $544 million, a decrease of 1% compared with $549 million in the prior-year period.  The decrease in net sales reflected lower volumes of siloxane derivative products partially offset by improved product mix in specialty and value added products and higher quartz business sales.

 

Segment EBITDA.  Segment EBITDA for the three months ended December 31, 2016 was $65 million, an increase of 59% compared with $41 million in the prior year period.  The increase in Segment EBITDA was driven primarily by improved demand in automotive and electronics markets, production efficiencies, and raw material deflation in the silicones segment.  In addition, the quartz business improved by $6 million due to cost controls and substantially improved manufacturing efficiencies as the Company experienced production disruption in the prior year period that did not reoccur.

 

Fiscal Year 2016 Results

Net Sales.  Net sales for the twelve months ended December 31, 2016 were $2.23 billion, a decrease of 2% compared with $2.29 billion in the prior-year period.  The decrease in net sales reflected lower volumes in line with the Company’s intentional efforts to reduce underperforming siloxane derivative products and increase sales in higher margin specialty portions of our portfolio. 

 

Segment EBITDA.  Segment EBITDA for the twelve months ended December 31, 2016 was $238 million, an increase of 23% compared with $194 million in the prior year period.  The increase in Segment EBITDA was driven primarily by the same factors that influenced fourth quarter 2016 Segment EBITDA performance.

 

Segment Results

Following are net sales and Segment EBITDA by reportable segment for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2016 and 2015.  See “Non-U.S. GAAP Measures” and Schedule 4 to this release for further information regarding Segment EBITDA for a reconciliation of net (loss) income to Segment EBITDA.

Global Restructuring Program and Siloxane Production Transformation  

As previously announced, Momentive‘s global restructuring programs and siloxane production transformation are expected to generate $45 million in annual savings.  Through December 31, 2016, Momentive achieved $29 million of savings under this program.  The Company expects to complete the global restructuring program and deliver approximately $16 million of savings in 2017.  Momentive has accrued approximately $17 million of related restructuring expenses, of which approximately $13 million has been incurred to date.   

 
 

Liquidity and Balance Sheet

At December 31, 2016, Momentive had net debt, which is total debt less cash and cash equivalents, of approximately $1.0 billion.  In addition, at December 31, 2016, Momentive had approximately $439 million in liquidity, including $224 million of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents and $215 million of availability under its senior secured asset-based revolving loan facility.  Momentive expects to have adequate liquidity to fund its operations for the foreseeable future from cash on its balance sheet, cash flows provided by operating activities and amounts available for borrowings under the ABL Facility.

Non-U.S. GAAP Measures

Segment EBITDA is defined as EBITDA (earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization) adjusted for certain non-cash and certain other income and expenses.  Segment EBITDA is an important measure used by the Company's senior management and board of directors to evaluate operating results and allocate capital resources among segments.  Segment EBITDA should not be considered a substitute for net (loss) income or other results reported in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”).  Segment EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.  See Schedule 4 to this release for a reconciliation of Segment EBITDA to net (loss) income.

 

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted for certain non-cash and certain non-recurring items and other adjustments calculated on a pro-forma basis, including the expected future cost savings from business optimization or other programs and the expected future impact of acquisitions, in each case as determined under the governing debt instrument.  As the Company is highly leveraged, the Company believes that including the supplemental adjustments that are made to calculate Adjusted EBITDA provides additional information to investors about the Company’s ability to comply with its financial covenants and to obtain additional debt in the future.  Adjusted EBITDA is not a defined term under GAAP.  Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial condition, liquidity or profitability, and should not be considered as an alternative to net (loss) income determined in accordance with GAAP or operating cash flows determined in accordance with GAAP.  Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for management's discretionary use, as it does not take into account certain items such as interest and principal payments on the Company’s indebtedness, depreciation and amortization expense (because the Company uses capital assets, depreciation and amortization expense is a necessary element of the Company’s costs and ability to generate revenue), working capital needs, tax payments (because the payment of taxes is part of the Company’s operations, it is a necessary element of the Company’s costs and ability to operate), non-recurring expenses and capital expenditures.  Fixed Charges under the indentures should not be considered as an alternative to interest expense.  See Schedule 5 to this release for a reconciliation of net (loss) income to Adjusted EBITDA and the calculation of the Adjusted EBITDA to Fixed Charges ratio.


Forward-Looking and Cautionary Statements

Certain statements in this press release are forward-looking statements within the meaning of and made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including statements related to our transformation and restructuring activities, growth and productivity initiatives, anticipated cost savings, growth, and market recovery, the impact of work stoppage and other incidents on our operations and competitiveness.  In addition, our management may from time to time make oral forward-looking statements.  All statements, other than statements of historical facts, are forward-looking statements.  Forward-looking statements may be identified by the words “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “project,” “plan,” “estimate,” “may,” “will,” “could,” “should,” “seek” or “intend” and similar expressions.  Forward-looking statements reflect our current expectations and assumptions regarding our business, the economy and other future events and conditions and are based on currently available financial, economic and competitive data and our current business plans.  Actual results could vary materially depending on risks and uncertainties that may affect our operations, markets, services, prices and other factors as discussed in the Risk Factors section of our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and our other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).  While we believe our assumptions are reasonable, we caution you against relying on any forward-looking statements as it is very difficult to predict the impact of known factors, and it is impossible for us to anticipate all factors that could affect our actual results.  Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to: a weakening of global economic and financial conditions, interruptions in the supply of or increased cost of raw materials, the impact of work stoppage and other incidents on our operations, changes in governmental regulations or interpretations thereof and related compliance and litigation costs, adverse rulings in litigation, difficulties with the realization of cost savings in connection with our global restructuring, transformation and strategic initiatives, including transactions with our affiliate, Hexion Inc., pricing actions by our competitors that could affect our operating margins, our ability to obtain additional financing,  and the other factors listed in the Risk Factors section of our SEC filings.  All forward-looking statements are expressly qualified in their entirety by this cautionary notice.  The forward-looking statements made by us speak only as of the date on which they are made.  Factors or events that could cause our actual results to differ may emerge from time to time.  We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as otherwise required by law.
