HAYWARD, Calif., July 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ultra Clean Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: UCTT), today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 28, 2019.

(PRNewsfoto/Ultra Clean Holdings, Inc.)

"UCT delivered a strong second quarter, surpassing the top-end of our guided range for revenue, and reflecting solid execution despite ongoing market uncertainty," said Jim Scholhamer, CEO. "In light of these market dynamics, we will continue to optimize for cash generation through operational efficiencies and work to align our cost structure with the prevailing business environment."

Second Quarter 2019 GAAP Financial Results

Consolidated revenue was $265.4 million, an increase of 2.0% compared to the prior quarter and a decrease of 8.6% over the same period a year ago. SPS contributed $210.4 million and SSB added $55.0 million. Total gross margin was 18.2% compared to 17.2% last quarter and 15.9% for the same period a year ago.

Net loss was $0.2 million or $0.01 per basic and diluted share. This compares to net income of $0.6 million or $0.02 per basic and diluted share in the previous quarter, and net income of $19.0 million or $0.49 and $0.48 per basic and diluted share for the same period last year.

Second Quarter 2019 Non-GAAP Financial Results

Non-GAAP net income was $8.2 million or $0.21 per diluted share. This compares to $8.1 million, or $0.21 per diluted share in the previous quarter and $21.5 million or $0.55 for the prior year. 

Non-GAAP operating margin was 6.2% compared to 6.1% in the previous quarter and 8.7% in the same period a year ago.

The Company has provided a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures in the financial statement tables included in this press release.

Third Quarter 2019 Outlook

The Company expects revenue in the range of $235.0 million to $255.0 million and GAAP diluted net income per share to be between $0.00 and $0.10.  The Company expects non-GAAP diluted net income per share to be between $0.11 and $0.21.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

Management uses non-GAAP net income and net income per diluted share to evaluate the Company's operating and financial results. We believe the presentation of non-GAAP results is useful to investors for analyzing our core business and business trends and comparing performance to prior periods, along with enhancing investors' ability to view the Company's results from management's perspective. The presentation of this additional information should not be considered a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Tables presenting reconciliations of non-GAAP results to U.S. GAAP results are included at the end of this press release. A reconciliation of our guidance for non-GAAP net income per diluted share for the following quarter is not available due to fluctuations in the geographic mix of our earnings from quarter to quarter, which impacts our tax rate and cannot be reasonably predicted or determined. As a result, such reconciliation is not available without unreasonable efforts and we are unable to determine the probable significance of the unavailable information.

Safe Harbor Statement

The foregoing information contains, or may be deemed to contain, "forward-looking statements" (as defined in the US Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995) which reflect our current views with respect to future events and financial performance. We use words such as "anticipates," "projection," "outlook," "forecast," "believes," "plan," "expect," "future," "intends," "may," "will," "estimates," "see," "predicts," and similar expressions to identify these forward-looking statements. Forward looking statements included in this press release include our expectations about the semiconductor capital equipment market and outlook. All forward-looking statements address matters that involve risks and uncertainties. Accordingly, the Company's actual results may differ materially from the results predicted or implied by these forward-looking statements. These risks, uncertainties and other factors also include, among others, those identified in "Risk Factors," "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations'' and elsewhere in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 28, 2018 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and subsequently filed quarterly reports on Form 10-Q. Ultra Clean Holdings, Inc. undertakes no obligation to publicly update or review any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise unless required by law.
