KMG Provides Preliminary Fourth Quarter And Fiscal 2013 Financial Results And Reschedules Fiscal Fourth Quarter Earnings Release And Conference Call

Stocks in this article: KMG

KMG Chemicals, Inc. (NYSE:KMG), a global provider of specialty chemicals in select markets, today announced that it will delay the full release of its fiscal fourth quarter and fiscal year 2013 financial results, and delay the conference call originally scheduled for Monday, October 14, due to a need for additional time to fully and accurately address the complexities and accounting requirements arising from the acquisition of OM Group’s Ultra Pure Chemicals (UPC) business. The earnings announcement and call are now scheduled to take place on Thursday, October 24 at 10:00 a.m. ET.

At this time, however, KMG is providing the investment community with the following preliminary unaudited financial information for the fourth quarter and full year ended July 31, 2013:

  • Fourth quarter net sales are expected to be $81.1 million, up 19.9% from the comparable quarter in fiscal 2012. Fourth quarter sales include two months of contribution from the acquisition of the UPC business.
  • Fourth quarter operating income is expected to be approximately $2.5 million vs. $6.7 million in the same period a year ago. Fourth quarter operating income includes $660,000 of UPC acquisition expenses, $577,000 of integration expenses and $1.5 million of CEO transition expenses. Excluding these expenses, fourth quarter operating income would be approximately $5.3 million.
  • Fourth quarter GAAP diluted earnings per share is expected to be $0.06 vs. $0.33 per share reported in last year’s fiscal fourth quarter.
  • Adjusted (non-GAAP) fourth quarter diluted earnings per share, which excludes UPC acquisition, integration and CEO transition expenses, is expected to be $0.28. In addition to the items previously identified, fourth quarter earnings is also anticipated to be adversely impacted by an increase to tax expense of $682,000 associated with the requirement to capitalize for tax purposes all of the previously incurred transaction expenses associated with the UPC acquisition.
  • Fiscal 2013 net sales are expected to be $263 million, a 3.4% decrease from $273 million in fiscal 2012. Despite an increase in net sales from the UPC acquisition, net sales are down in the aggregate because of weak demand in electronic chemicals in North America beginning in the second quarter of the fiscal year, and because of reduced sales of creosote.
  • Fiscal 2013 operating income is expected to be approximately $17.2 million vs. $25.4 million in fiscal 2012. Fiscal 2013 operating income is impacted by $2.1 million of acquisition expense, $577,000 of integration expense, and $1.5 million of CEO transition expenses. Excluding these expenses, operating income would be $21.3 million.
  • Fiscal 2013 GAAP diluted earnings per share is expected to be $0.81 vs. $1.20 reported in fiscal 2012.
  • Fiscal 2013 adjusted (non-GAAP) diluted earnings per share, which exclude acquisition, integration and CEO transition expenses, is expected to be $1.11.

Due to the recent close of the company’s UPC acquisition, and the complex accounting requirements arising from the transaction, KMG requires additional time to complete and file its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2013. Given these circumstances, KMG will file a notice on Form 12b-25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission to report the delayed filing of its Form 10-K for the fiscal year 2013. KMG will file its Form 10-K within the 15-day extension allowed by Form 12b-25. KMG is not aware of any disagreements with its auditors regarding the company’s fiscal 2013 financial statements, and KMG has not discovered any material errors or omissions that would require restatement of prior financial information.
