OM Group Announces 2006 Fourth-Quarter and Full-Year Results
Monday March 5, 7:06 am ET

CLEVELAND, March 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- OM Group, Inc. (NYSE: OMG - News) today announced strong financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2006. (Note: On March 1, 2007, the company announced that it had completed the sale of its Nickel business to Norilsk Nickel for $408 million in cash, on a debt-free/cash-free basis, plus a net working capital adjustment. Therefore, the company's results for 2006 and 2005 reflect the Nickel business as a discontinued operation. The company's continuing operations include its Specialties business, ongoing corporate expenses and other income/expenses of the company's continuing operations. On February 5, 2007, the company announced that it had called for redemption all $400 million of its outstanding 9.25% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2011. The Notes will be redeemed on March 7, 2007. Interest expense related to the Notes is classified in continuing operations.)

Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2006 were $172.1 million, compared to $151.5 million reported in the corresponding three-month period of 2005. Gross profit increased to $46.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2006 versus $25.0 million in the fourth quarter a year ago. Loss from continuing operations before accounting changes was $17.0 million, or $0.58 per diluted share in 2006, compared to a loss of $0.1 million in 2005.

Income from discontinued operations, including the results of the Nickel business, was $73.8 million in the 2006 fourth quarter compared to $9.5 million a year ago. Net sales of the Nickel business were $278.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2006 compared to $124.9 million a year ago, reflecting dramatically higher nickel prices.

Net income in the 2006 period was $56.8 million, or $1.93 per diluted share, compared to $11.6 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, in the 2005 period.

Selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) in the fourth quarter of 2006 were $35.0 million, or 20 percent of net sales, compared with $10.5 million, or 7 percent of net sales in 2005, primarily due to insurance proceeds of $19.0 million related to the shareholder litigation that was settled in 2005 which were a credit to SG&A. Also included in SG&A in 2006 is a $3.2 million charge related to settlement of litigation with our former CEO related to his termination in 2005. Corporate expenses for the fourth quarter of 2006 were $12.6 million, compared with income of $10.7 million a year ago, due primarily to the insurance proceeds in 2005 and the charge related to the former CEO noted above.

Income tax expense in the 2006 period includes $14.1 million for additional U.S. income taxes on undistributed foreign earnings, which the company plans to repatriate in 2007 in connection with the redemption of the Notes. Previously, such earnings were permanently reinvested overseas and therefore no U.S. income taxes were applicable.

In the fourth quarter of 2006, the average price of cobalt was $18.66 per pound compared with $12.51 per pound in the fourth quarter of 2005. The fourth quarter 2006 average price was significantly impacted by a 40 percent increase in December. The average price of nickel for the fourth quarter of 2006 was $15.00 per pound versus $5.73 per pound in the fourth quarter of 2005.


Net sales in 2006 were $660.1 million, versus $617.5 million in 2005. Gross profit increased to $184.7 million in 2006, compared with $101.0 million in 2005. Income from continuing operations before accounting changes was $23.6 million in 2006 compared to a loss of $12.4 million in 2005. Net income was $216.1 million, or $7.31 per diluted share, in 2006, compared to net income of $38.9 million, or $1.36 per diluted share, a year ago.

Income from discontinued operations, including the results of the Nickel business, was $192.2 million in 2006 compared to $49.0 million a year ago. Net sales of the Nickel business were $790.9 million in 2006 compared to $632.1 million a year ago.

The factors impacting the company's full-year results include the benefit of rising cobalt prices during 2006, higher by-product sales, a favorable shift in product mix and a gain on the sale of an investment in equity securities of $12.2 million. 2005 results were negatively impacted by the planned maintenance shut-down of the company's joint venture smelter located in the Democratic Republic of Congo during the first four months of 2005. SG&A increased by $33.6 million in 2006 versus 2005, and corporate expenses increased $29.1 million over the same period, both increases due primarily to income in 2005 of $27.5 million from insurance proceeds related to shareholder litigation.

Operating activities of continuing operations provided cash of $95.0 million during 2006, versus negative cash flow from operations of $7.3 million in 2005. The increase was primarily due to higher income in 2006 and a $74.0 million payment in 2005 to settle the shareholder litigation. The cash balance at December 31, 2006 was $282.3 million

OM Group Reports Results for 2012 First Quarter

- Strong revenue and adjusted EBITDA growth driven by acquisition -

Press Release: OM Group, Inc. – 9 hours ago.. .

.OM Group Inc.




CLEVELAND, May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- OM Group, Inc. (OMG) today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012.

First quarter consolidated net sales increased 41 percent compared with last year's comparable quarter, increasing to $466.2 million primarily as a result of the August 2011 acquisition of VAC and growth in its Battery Technologies business, partly offset by lower volumes and prices in its Advanced Materials business and lower volumes in its Specialty Chemicals business. Income from continuing operations was $12.1 million, or $0.38 per diluted share. Excluding non-cash charges related to the VAC inventory purchase accounting step-up, adjusted income from continuing operations was $23.0 million, or $0.72 per diluted share, compared with $30.9 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, during the first quarter of 2011. Adjusted EBITDA was $72.3 million in the 2012 period compared to $51.1 million in the 2011 period.

"Our first quarter results reflect significant contributions from our two newest business platforms, Magnetic Technologies and Battery Technologies," said Joe Scaminace, Chairman and CEO of OM Group, Inc. "By executing our diversification strategy, we have created a portfolio of businesses capable of delivering solid financial results in a quarter with difficult cobalt market fundamentals. Most of the Company's profitability is now derived from our non-cobalt businesses."

The Company commented that cobalt market fundamentals improved slightly toward the end of the quarter but compared unfavorably with the prior year first quarter, negatively impacting its Advanced Materials business. The Specialty Chemicals business continued to be affected by customer disruptions caused by Thailand flooding and European economic pressures. Operating activities consumed $14 million of cash in the first quarter of 2012 due to higher working capital levels. The Company finished the first quarter with $270 million of cash and $678 million of debt.

Looking into the second quarter, the Company commented that operating cash flow is expected to improve from first quarter levels as inventory becomes better aligned with customer demand, and profits are expected to decline due to European and certain end market weaknesses, the scheduled annual maintenance shut-down at its Kokkola refinery, and lower rare-earth pricing benefits.

"We have created a diversified materials company exposed to end markets with healthy long-term growth drivers," said Mr. Scaminace. "We have several attractive strategic platforms that we can build-out, further enhancing growth and returns. And we have the financial strength and flexibility to support our strategic transformation and create long-term shareholder value."

The Company is including certain non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted operating profit, adjusted income from continuing operations and adjusted EBITDA, in this press release and the corresponding presentation materials.

The non-GAAP financial measures are defined and reconciled to applicable U.S. GAAP measures in this release.
