ENTEGRIS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
1. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Nature of Operations Entegris, Inc. (Entegris or the Company) is a leading provider of yield-enhancing materials and solutions for advanced manufacturing processes in the semiconductor and other high-technology industries.
Principles of Consolidation The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its majority-owned subsidiaries. Intercompany profits, transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.
Use of Estimates The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, particularly receivables, inventories, property, plant and equipment, goodwill, intangibles, accrued expenses, and income taxes and related accounts, and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Basis of Presentation The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and contain all adjustments considered necessary, and are of a normal recurring nature, to present fairly the financial position as of June 27, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the results of operations and comprehensive income (loss) for the three and six months ended June 27, 2015 and June 28, 2014, and the equity and cash flows for the six months ended June 27, 2015 and June 28, 2014.
The condensed consolidated financial statements and notes are presented as permitted by Form 10-Q and do not contain certain information included in the Company’s annual consolidated financial statements and notes. The information included in this Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with Management’s Discussion and Analysis and consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014. The results of operations for the three and six months ended June 27, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.
Fair Value of Financial Instruments The carrying value of cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued payroll and related benefits, and other accrued liabilities approximates fair value due to the short maturity of those items. The fair value of long-term debt, including current maturities, based upon models utilizing market observable (Level 2) inputs and credit risk, was $704.2 million at June 27, 2015 compared to the carrying amount of long-term debt, including current maturities, of $692.0 million.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements In May 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)(ASU 2014-09). ASU 2014-09 outlines a new, single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers and supersedes most current revenue recognition guidance, including industry-specific guidance. This new revenue recognition model provides a five-step analysis in determining when and how revenue is recognized. The new model will require revenue recognition to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration a company expects to receive in exchange for those goods or services. ASU 2014-09 is effective beginning January 1, 2018. The Company is currently assessing the impact that adopting this new accounting guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements and disclosures.

On April 7, 2015, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2015-03, Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs (ASU No. 2015-03) which requires an entity to present debt issuance costs as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of the related debt liability on the balance sheet. The update requires retrospective application and represents a change in accounting principle. The update becomes effective January 1, 2016. Based on the balances as of June 27, 2015, the adoption of ASU No. 2015-03 will require the Company to reclassify $13.7 million of unamortized debt issuance costs from other current assets and other noncurrent assets to long-term debt.
2. ACQUISITIONS

ATMI
On April 30, 2014, the Company acquired ATMI, Inc. (the Merger), a Delaware corporation (ATMI), for approximately $1.1 billion in cash pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the Merger Agreement), dated as of February 4, 2014.

Total purchase price, net of cash acquired
$
809,390


The fair value of acquired property, plant and equipment of $124.0 million is valued at its value-in-use, unless there was a known plan to dispose of an asset.
 
The fair value of acquired identifiable intangible assets was determined using the “income approach” on an individual project basis. In performing these valuations, the key underlying probability-adjusted assumptions of the discounted cash flows were projected revenues, gross margin expectations and operating cost estimates. The valuations were based on the information that was available as of the acquisition date and the expectations and assumptions that have been deemed reasonable by the Company’s management. There are inherent uncertainties and management judgment required in these determinations. The fair value measurements of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed were based on valuations involving significant unobservable inputs, or Level 3 in the fair value hierarchy.

The purchase price of ATMI exceeded the net of the acquisition-date amounts of the identifiable assets acquired and the liabilities assumed by $337.8 million. Cash flows used to determine the purchase price included strategic and synergistic benefits (investment value) specific to the Company, which resulted in a purchase price in excess of the fair value of identifiable net assets. The purchase price also included the fair values of other assets that were not identifiable, not separately recognizable under accounting rules (e.g., assembled workforce) or of immaterial value in addition to a going-concern element that represents the Company's ability to earn a higher rate of return on the group of assets than would be expected on the separate assets as determined during the valuation process. This additional investment value resulted in goodwill. No amount of goodwill is expected to be deductible for income tax purposes.

The final valuation of assets acquired and liabilities assumed was completed in the second quarter of 2015.

The Company’s year-to-date effective tax rate was 21.7% in 2015, compared to an effective tax rate of 98.3% in 2014. This variance reflects a greater concentration in the Company's geographic composition of income toward jurisdictions with lower tax rates, nondeductibility of certain acquisition-related expenditures incurred in connection with the ATMI acquisition and the benefit of a foreign dividend in 2014 when compared to 2015.

In the first quarter of 2015, the Company recorded an other-than-temporary impairment of $0.5 million related to an available-for-sale common stock investment classified in short-term investments in its condensed consolidated balance sheet. The Company determined that it was an other-than-temporary impairment due to the significant decline in the fair value compared to the acquisition cost for an extended period of time and the financial condition of the issuer.
9. SEGMENT REPORTING

The Company reports its financial performance based on two reportable segments: Critical Materials Handling (CMH) and Electronic Materials (EM). The manager of CMH and EM is accountable for results at the segment profit level and reports directly to the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, who is responsible for evaluating companywide performance and resource allocation decisions between the product groups. The Company's two reportable segments are business divisions that provide unique products and services.
CMH: provides a broad range of products that filter, handle, dispense, and protect critical materials used in the semiconductor manufacturing process and in other high-technology manufacturing. CMH’s products and subsystems include high-purity materials packaging, fluid handling and dispensing systems and liquid filters as well as microenvironment products that protect critical substrates such as wafers during shipping and manufacturing. CMH also provides specialized graphite components and specialty coatings for high-temperature applications.
EM: provides high performance materials, materials packaging and materials delivery systems that enable high yield, cost effective semiconductor manufacturing. EM’s products consist of specialized chemistries and performance materials, gas microcontamination control systems and components, and sub-atmospheric pressure gas delivery systems for the safe and efficient handling of hazardous gases to semiconductor process equipment.
Inter-segment sales are not significant. Segment profit is defined as net sales less direct segment operating expenses, excluding certain unallocated expenses, consisting mainly of general and administrative costs for the Company’s human resources, finance and information technology functions as well as interest expense, amortization of intangible assets, charges for the fair value write-up of acquired inventory sold and contingent consideration fair value adjustments.

Summarized financial information for the Company’s reportable segments is shown in the following tables.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
The following discussion and analysis of the Company’s condensed consolidated financial condition and results of operations should be read along with the condensed consolidated financial statements and the accompanying notes to the condensed consolidated financial statements included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Some of the information contained in this discussion and analysis or set forth elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q includes forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. You should review the section entitled “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 as well as in our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K for a discussion of important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results described in or implied by the forward-looking statements contained in the following discussion and analysis.

Overview
This overview is not a complete discussion of the Company’s financial condition, changes in financial condition and results of operations; it is intended merely to facilitate an understanding of the most salient aspects of its financial condition and operating performance and to provide a context for the detailed discussion and analysis that follows and must be read in its entirety in order to fully understand the Company’s financial condition and results of operations.

Entegris is a worldwide developer, manufacturer and supplier of yield-enhancing materials and solutions for advanced manufacturing processes in the semiconductor and other high-technology industries. Our products and materials are used to manufacture semiconductors, micro-electromechanical systems or MEMS, flat panel displays, light emitting diodes or “LEDs”, high-purity chemicals, such as photoresists, solar cells, gas lasers, optical and magnetic storage devices, and critical components for aerospace, glass manufacturing and biomedical applications. We sell our products worldwide through a direct sales force and through selected distributors.

We offer a diverse product portfolio that includes approximately 19,000 standard and customized products which include both unit driven and capital expense driven products. As a result of the acquisition of ATMI on April 30, 2014, unit-driven products now comprise approximately 80% of our combined sales, with the balance being capital driven products. Our unit-driven products are consumed or exhausted during the customer’s manufacturing process and rely on the level of semiconductor and other manufacturing activity to drive growth. Our unit-driven product class includes membrane-based liquid filters, resin-based gas purifiers, wafer shippers, disk-shipping containers and test assembly and packaging products, implant gas storage and delivery systems, copper electroplating materials, advanced precursor materials for thin film deposition and photoresist strip and post chemical mechanical planarization (CMP) or CMP cleaning materials and consumable graphite and silicon carbide components. Capital expense driven products, which generally have a lifetime of 18 months or more, rely on the expansion of manufacturing capacity to drive growth and include our fluid management components, systems and subsystems that transfer, monitor, and control process liquids used in the semiconductor manufacturing processes, gas filtration and purification components, systems and subsystems that remove contaminants at equipment and factory level for manufacturing, our process carriers that protect the integrity of in-process wafers and graphite, silicon carbide and specialty coated components for manufacturing equipment.
The Company’s fiscal year is the calendar period ending each December 31. The Company’s fiscal quarters consist of 13-week or 14-week periods that end on Saturday. The Company’s fiscal quarters in 2015 end March 28, 2015, June 27, 2015, September 26, 2015 and December 31, 2015. Unaudited information for the three and six months ended June 27, 2015 and June 28, 2014 and the financial position as of June 27, 2015 and December 31, 2014 are included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
Forward-Looking Statements
The information in this Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, except for the historical information, contains forward-looking statements. These statements are subject to risks and uncertainties and to the cautionary statement set forth above. These forward-looking statements could differ materially from actual results. The Company assumes no obligation to publicly release the results of any revision or updates to these forward-looking statements to reflect future events or unanticipated occurrences. This discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the condensed consolidated financial statements and the related notes thereto, which are included elsewhere in this report.
Key operating factors Key factors, which management believes have the largest impact on the overall results of operations of Entegris, Inc., include:
Level of sales Since a significant portion of the Company’s product costs (except for raw materials, purchased components and direct labor) are largely fixed in the short-to-medium term, an increase or decrease in sales affects gross profits and overall profitability significantly. Also, increases or decreases in sales and operating profitability

15


affect certain costs such as incentive compensation and commissions, which are highly variable in nature. The Company’s sales are subject to the effects of industry cyclicality, technological change, substantial competition, pricing pressures and foreign currency fluctuation.
Variable margin on sales The Company’s variable margin on sales is determined by selling prices and the costs of manufacturing and raw materials. This is affected by a number of factors, which include the Company’s sales mix, purchase prices of raw material (especially polymers, membranes, stainless steel and purchased components), competition, both domestic and international, direct labor costs, and the efficiency of the Company’s production operations, among others.
Fixed cost structure. The Company’s operations include a number of large fixed or semi-fixed cost components, which include salaries, indirect labor and benefits, facility costs, lease expense, and depreciation and amortization. It is not possible to vary these costs easily in the short-term as volumes fluctuate. Accordingly, increases or decreases in sales volume can have a large effect on the usage and productivity of these cost components, resulting in a large impact on the Company’s profitability.
Overall Summary of Financial Results for the Three and Six Months Ended June 27, 2015

For the three months ended June 27, 2015, net sales increased by $29.1 million, or 12%, to $280.7 million, compared to $251.6 million for the three months ended June 28, 2014. The Company's sales increased mainly due to the inclusion of incremental sales of $33.0 million from ATMI, Inc. (ATMI), which was acquired April 30, 2014, reflecting a full quarter's sales compared to two months' sales in the year-ago quarter. Exclusive of the effect of the incremental month of ATMI sales and unfavorable foreign currency translation effects of $9.8 million, the Company's sales increased 2%, reflecting flat demand from the Company's semiconductor industry customers compared to the year-ago period, and an increase in sales of specialty materials products.

Along with the net sales increase, the Company's gross profit rose by $39.4 million for the three months ended June 27, 2015, to $128.1 million, up from $88.7 million for the three months ended June 28, 2014. The Company experienced a 45.6% gross margin rate for the three months ended June 27, 2015 compared to 35.2% in the comparable year-ago period. The gross profit and gross margin improvements were primarily associated with the $24.3 million charge for fair value write-up of acquired ATMI inventory sold during the second quarter of 2014. Excluding that charge, the Company's gross margin for the year-ago quarter was 44.9%. The Company's gross profit also improved due to the incremental ATMI sales noted above.

The Company's selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses decreased by $32.1 million for the three months ended June 27, 2015 compared to the year-ago quarter, mainly due to the absence of significant merger-related expenses related to the April 30, 2014 ATMI acquisition. In addition, the cost of integration activities was lower for the three months ended June 27, 2015 compared to a year earlier, offset in part by the inclusion of SG&A expenses for ATMI's operations for a full quarter compared to two months a year ago.

The Company incurred interest expense of $9.8 million for the quarter ended June 27, 2015 compared to $12.5 million in the three-month period ended June 28, 2014. The decrease reflects the absence of bridge financing costs of $4.0 million incurred in the second quarter of 2014 in connection with the ATMI acquisition. This amount was offset in part by an additional month's interest expense on outstanding borrowings.

As a result, the Company reported net income of $24.4 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 27, 2015 compared to a net loss $14.7 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, a year ago.
Net sales for the six months ended June 27, 2015 were $544.1 million, up 30% from $417.4 million in the comparable year-ago period, principally driven by the inclusion of incremental ATMI sales of $120.3 million. Exclusive of the ATMI sales, the Company's sales grew 6%, reflecting the slightly better demand from the Company's semiconductor industry customers noted above. Gross profit, operating expenses, interest and tax expense for the six months ended June 28, 2014 were also affected by the ATMI-related items noted above. As a result, the Company reported net income of $39.3 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, for the six months ended June 27, 2015 compared to net loss of $0.4 million, or $0.00 per diluted share, in the comparable year-ago period.
Sales were up 7% on a sequential basis over the first quarter of 2015. Exclusive of a nominal favorable foreign currency translation effect, the Company's sales increased 6%. Sequentially, overall demand from the Company's semiconductor industry customers improved, reflecting higher industry fab utilization rates and higher industry capital spending.
The Company’s reportable segments' net sales and operating results for the three-month and six-month periods are described in detail below.

During the six-month period ended June 27, 2015, the Company’s operating activities used cash flow of $36.1 million. Cash used for capital expenditures was $34.2 million and the Company made debt payments of $75.0 million for the period. Cash and cash equivalents were $313.7 million at June 27, 2015 compared with cash and cash equivalents of $389.7 million at December 31, 2014. The Company had outstanding long-term debt of $692.0 million at June 27, 2015 and $766.8 million at December 31, 2014, respectively.

Critical Accounting Policies
Management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations are based upon the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these condensed consolidated financial statements requires the Company to make estimates, assumptions and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

The critical accounting policies affected most significantly by estimates, assumptions and judgments used in the preparation of the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements are described in Item 7 of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. On an ongoing basis, the Company evaluates the critical accounting policies used to prepare its condensed consolidated financial statements, including, but not limited to, those related to inventory valuation, impairment of long-lived assets, goodwill, income taxes and business acquisitions. There have been no material changes in these aforementioned critical accounting policies.

$
280,709


The inclusion of incremental ATMI sales is the key factor underlying the increase. Partly offsetting this is an unfavorable foreign currency translation effects of $9.8 million related to the year-over-year weakening of most currencies versus the U.S. dollar, most notably the Japanese yen, Korean won and Euro. Exclusive of the effect of the ATMI sales and unfavorable foreign currency translation effects, the Company's sales increased 2% in 2015 when compared to 2014, reflecting flat demand from the Company's semiconductor industry customers compared to the year-ago period, and an increase in sales of specialty materials products.

On a geographic basis, total sales in the second quarter of 2015 to North America were 25%, Asia (excluding Japan) 54%, Europe 9% and Japan 12% compared to prior year second quarter sales to North America of 25%, Asia (excluding Japan) 52%, Europe 12% and

18


Japan 12%. Sales in Asia, North America, Japan and Europe increased 17%, 12%, 16%, and (13)%, respectively in the second quarter of 2015 compared to last year's second quarter, mainly due to the addition of sales from ATMI.
Net sales for the six months ended June 27, 2015 were $544.1 million, up 30% from $417.4 million in the comparable year-ago period. An analysis of the factors underlying the increase in net sales is presented in the following table:

The inclusion of incremental ATMI sales is the key factor underlying the increase. Partly offsetting this is an unfavorable foreign currency translation effects of $18.0 million related to the year-over-year weakening of most currencies versus the U.S. dollar, most notably the Japanese yen and Euro. Exclusive of those factors, the Company's sales grew 6%, reflecting the strong demand from device makers and improved wafer starts noted above.

Sales were up 7% on a sequential basis over the first quarter of 2015. Exclusive of a nominal favorable foreign currency translation effect, the Company's sales increased 6%. Sequentially, overall demand from the Company's semiconductor industry customers improved, reflecting higher industry fab utilization rates and higher industry capital spending.

Gross profit Gross profit for the three months ended June 27, 2015 increased to $128.1 million, up from $88.7 million for the three months ended June 28, 2014. An analysis of the factors underlying the increase in gross profit is presented in the following table:

The Company experienced a 45.6% gross margin rate for the three months ended June 27, 2015 compared to 35.2% in the comparable year-ago period. The gross profit and gross margin improvements primarily reflect the inclusion of one additional month of sales from ATMI and the absence of the incremental cost of sales charges of $24.3 million recorded in the second quarter of 2014 associated with the sale of inventory acquired in the acquisition with ATMI. Excluding the latter item, the Company's gross margin for the year-ago quarter was 44.9%.

Gross profit for the six months ended June 27, 2015 increased to $244.6 million, up from $160.0 million for the six months ended June 28, 2014. An analysis of the factors underlying the increase in gross profit is presented in the following table:

The Company experienced a 45.0% gross margin rate for the six months ended June 27, 2015 compared to 38.3% in the comparable year-ago period. The gross profit and gross margin improvements primarily reflect the inclusion of four additional months of sales from ATMI and the absence of the incremental cost of sales charges of $24.3 million recorded in the second quarter of 2014 associated with the sale of inventory acquired in the acquisition with ATMI. Excluding the latter item, the Company's gross margin for the year-ago quarter was 44.2%.

19


On a sequential basis, gross profit decreased by $11.6 million to $128.1 million, up from $116.5 million in the first quarter of 2015. The gross margin rate of 45.6% for the second quarter of 2015 compared to 44.2% in the first quarter of 2015. The gross profit increase relates primarily to the Company's improvement in net sales and favorable sales mix.
Selling, general and administrative expenses Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $50.3 million for the three months ended June 27, 2015, down $32.1 million, or 39%, from the comparable three-month period a year earlier. An analysis of the factors underlying the decrease in SG&A is presented in the following table:

On a sequential basis, SG&A expenses decreased by $0.6 million in the second quarter of 2015. The Company expects overall SG&A costs will reach normalized levels beginning in the third quarter of 2015 as savings associated with integration efforts, primarily resulting from the combination of corporate staff functions, are expected to be realized.

Engineering, research and development expenses Engineering, research and development (ER&D) expenses related to the support of current product lines and the development of new products and manufacturing technologies were $26.5 million in the three months ended June 27, 2015 compared to $21.6 million in the year-ago period, a $5.0 million increase.

Incremental ER&D expenses recorded by ATMI, reflecting a full quarter's expenses compared to two months' in the year-ago quarter, included in the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements amounted to $3.5 million, accounting for approximately 70% of the increase. The remainder of the increase for the three months ended June 27, 2015 reflects higher ER&D activity levels, primarily made up of increased legacy Entegris employee costs of $1.0 million. On a sequential basis, ER&D expenses decreased nominally in the second quarter of 2015.

ER&D expenses increased 40% to $52.3 million in the first six months of 2015 compared to $37.3 million in the year ago period, primarily due to the addition of $12.7 million incremental ER&D expenses from ATMI, accounting for approximately 84% of the increase. The remainder of the increase for the six months ended June 27, 2015 reflects higher ER&D activity levels.

The Company’s overall ER&D efforts will continue to focus on the support or extension of current product lines, and the development of new products and manufacturing technologies.
Interest expense Interest expense includes interest associated with debt outstanding issued to help fund the acquisition of ATMI in 2014, the amortization of debt issuance costs associated with such borrowings, and bridge financing costs of $4.0 million, which were recorded in the second quarter of 2014.
Interest expense was $9.8 million in the three months ended June 27, 2015 compared to $12.5 million in the three-month period ended June 28, 2014. The decrease reflects the absence of bridge financing costs of $4.0 million incurred in the second quarter of 2014 in

20


connection with the ATMI acquisition. This amount was offset in part by an additional month's interest expense on outstanding borrowings.

The Company incurred interest expense of $19.6 million for the six-month period ended June 27, 2015 compared to $12.6 million in the six-month period ended June 28, 2014. The increase reflects six months' interest in 2015 compared to two months' interest in 2014, offset in part by the absence of the aforementioned second quarter 2014 bridge financing costs
Other (income) expense, net Other income, net was $1.1 million and $2.8 million in the three and six months ended June 27, 2015, respectively. Other income, net included foreign currency transaction gains of $1.0 million and $3.4 million for the three-month and six-month periods, respectively. Partly offsetting the the six-month figure was a $0.6 million loss related to the impairment and sale of an equity investment.
Other expense, net was $1.4 million and $1.5 million in the three-month and six-month periods ended June 28, 2014, respectively, which was mainly due to foreign currency transaction losses.

Income tax expense (benefit) The Company recorded income tax expense of $6.2 million and $10.9 million, respectively, in the three and six months ended June 27, 2015 compared to income tax benefit of $22.4 million and $18.2 million, respectively, in the three and six months ended June 28, 2014. The Company’s year-to-date effective tax rate was 21.7% in 2015, compared to 98.3% in 2014. The tax rate in 2014 reflects the Company's geographic composition of income toward jurisdictions with lower tax rates, the nondeductibility of certain acquisition-related expenditures and the benefit of a foreign dividend.

Net income Due to the factors noted above, the Company recorded net income of $24.4 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, in the three-month period ended June 27, 2015 compared to a net loss of $14.7 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the three-month period ended June 28, 2014. In the six-month period ended June 27, 2015, the Company recorded net income of $39.3 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $0.4 million, or $0.00 per diluted share, in the three-month period ended June 28, 2014.

The net losses and diluted losses per share for the 2014 three-month and six-month periods mainly reflect the effect of the significant costs associated with the ATMI acquisition described in greater detail above.

Non-GAAP Measures The Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP). The Company also utilizes certain non-GAAP financial measures as a complement to financial measures provided in accordance with GAAP in order to better assess and reflect trends affecting the Company’s business and results of operations. See Non-GAAP Information included below in this section for additional detail, including the definition of non-GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of GAAP measures to the Company’s non-GAAP measures.

The Company’s non-GAAP financial measures are Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Operating Income, together with related measures thereof, and non-GAAP Earnings Per Share.

Adjusted EBITDA increased 15% to $67.1 million in the three-month period ended June 27, 2015, compared to $58.2 million in the three-month period ended June 28, 2014. Adjusted EBITDA, as a percent of net sales, increased to 23.9% from 23.1% in the year-ago period. Adjusted Operating Income increased 14% to $53.7 million in the three-month period ended June 27, 2015, compared to $47.2 million in the three-month period ended June 28, 2014. Adjusted Operating Income, as a percent of net sales, increased to 19.1% from 18.8% in the year-ago period. Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share increased 20% to $0.24 in the three-month period ended June 27, 2015, compared to $0.20 in the three-month period ended June 28, 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA increased 39% to $122.9 million in the six-month period ended June 27, 2015, compared to $88.2 million in the six-month period ended June 28, 2014. Adjusted EBITDA, as a percent of net sales, increased to 22.6% from 21.1% in the year-ago period. Adjusted Operating Income increased 39% to $96.1 million in the six-month period ended June 27, 2015, compared to $69.3 million in the six-month period ended June 28, 2014. Adjusted Operating Income, as a percent of net sales, increased to 17.7% from 16.6% in the year-ago period. Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share increased 31% to $0.42 in the six-month period ended June 27, 2015, compared to $0.32 in the six-month period ended June 28, 2014.

Critical Materials Handling (CMH)
For the second quarter of 2015, CMH net sales decreased 1% to $174.3 million, from $176.8 million in the comparable period last year. The inclusion of incremental sales of $3.5 million from ATMI and an increase in sales of specialty materials products nearly offset reductions in the sales of fluid management, liquid microcontamination control and 300mm transport module products, and unfavorable foreign currency translation effects. Despite the slightly lower sales, CMH reported a segment profit of $43.7 million in the second quarter of 2015, up 6% from $41.1 million in the year-ago period due to a favorable sales mix.

For the six months ended June 27, 2015, CMH net sales increased 6% to $341.7 million, from $322.4 million in the comparable period last year. This increase reflects the inclusion of incremental sales of $15.1 million from ATMI and an increase in sales of specialty materials products. These factors were partly offset by reductions in the sales of fluid management and liquid microcontamination control, and unfavorable foreign currency translation effects. CMH reported a segment profit of $85.1 million in the six months ended June 27, 2015, up 19% from $71.6 million in the year-ago period also due to higher sales and a slightly favorable sales mix, partly offset by a 6% increase in operating expenses.
Electronic Materials (EM)
For the second quarter of 2015, EM net sales increased 42% to $106.5 million, from $74.8 million in the comparable period last year. The sales increase essentially reflects the inclusion of incremental sales of $29.5 million from ATMI. EM reported a segment profit of $28.6 million in the second quarter of 2015 compared to a $22.7 million segment profit in the year-ago period. The increase in segment profit is primarily associated with higher sales levels reflecting the sales of ATMI products and an improved margin related to a more favorable sales mix, offset partly by costs associated with the ATMI infrastructure.

For the six months ended June 27, 2015, EM net sales increased 113% to $202.4 million, up from $95.0 million in the comparable period last year. The sales increase primarily reflects the inclusion of incremental sales of $105.3 million from ATMI, while the remainder reflected slightly improved sales of gas microcontamination control systems products. EM reported a segment profit of $48.8 million in the six months ended June 27, 2015 compared to a $26.4 million segment profit in the year-ago period. The increase in the EM's profit for the six months ended June 27, 2015 reflects the same factors noted for the improvement of the second quarter segment profit.
Unallocated general and administrative expenses
Unallocated general and administrative expenses totaled $21.0 million in the second quarter of 2015 compared to $54.7 million in the second quarter of 2014. The $33.7 million decline includes the absence of transaction-related costs of $26.8 million and deal costs of $7.8 million, as well as lower integration expenses of $1.1 million. These items were offset by incremental ATMI infrastructure expenses of $1.6 million.

Unallocated general and administrative expenses for the six months ended June 27, 2015 totaled $42.7 million, down from $68.1 million in the six months ended June 28, 2014. The $25.4 million decline includes the absence of transaction-related costs of $26.8 million and deal costs of $9.1 million, offset by incremental ATMI infrastructure expenses of $6.4 million and increased integration expense of $1.5 million.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
Operating activities Cash flows used in operating activities totaled $36.1 million in the six months ended June 27, 2015. Operating cash flows reflecting net income adjusted for non-cash expenses (such as depreciation, amortization and share-based compensation) was offset by changes in operating assets and liabilities of $67.8 million, mainly reflecting increases in accounts receivable and inventories, as well as a decrease in accounts payable and accrued liabilities.
Accounts receivable increased by $23.6 million during the six months ended June 27, 2015, or $28.6 million after accounting for foreign currency translation, mainly reflecting an increase in the Company’s days sales outstanding (DSO). The Company’s DSO was 58 days at June 27, 2015 compared to 52 days at the beginning of the year. The increase was primarily due to the Company's quarter closing date occurring several days prior to the end of the calendar month, the period during which receivable collections are typically heavy, particularly for the Company's Asia operations.
Inventories increased by $21.6 million during the three months ended June 27, 2015, but increased by $28.5 million after accounting for foreign currency translation and the provision for excess and obsolete inventory. The net increase reflects higher levels of all inventory categories due to increased business activity.

Accounts payable and accrued liabilities decreased $18.6 million during the six months ended June 27, 2015, but were $9.1 million lower after accounting for foreign currency translation and payments for capital expenditures. The decrease, reflecting the payment of 2014 incentive compensation during the first quarter of 2015, was partly offset by a $2.7 million increase in accrued interest payable related to the long-term debt.

Working capital at June 27, 2015 was $558.7 million, compared to $503.1 million as of December 31, 2014, and included $313.7 million in cash and cash equivalents, compared to cash and cash equivalents of $389.7 million as of December 31, 2014.

Investing activities Cash flows used in investing activities totaled $32.3 million in the six-month period ended June 27, 2015.
Acquisition of property and equipment totaled $34.2 million, which primarily reflected investments in equipment and tooling. The Company's 2015 capital expenditure plans generally reflect more normalized capital spending levels. As of June 27, 2015, the Company had outstanding capital purchase obligations of $17.0 million for the construction or purchase of plant and equipment not yet recorded in the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements as the Company had not yet received the related goods or property. As of June 27, 2015, the Company expects its capital expenditures in 2015 to be approximately $65 million.
Financing activities Cash flows used in financing activities totaled $76.1 million during the six-month period ended June 27, 2015. This primarily reflects the Company's payments of $75 million on the senior secured term loan facility.

The Company has a senior secured asset-based revolving credit facility maturing April 30, 2019 that provides financing of $75 million, subject to a borrowing base.  The senior secured asset-based revolving credit facility bears interest at a rate per annum equal to the sum of 2% plus the applicable LIBOR rate then in effect. As of June 27, 2015, the Company had no outstanding borrowings and $0.2 million undrawn on outstanding letters of credit under the senior secured asset-based revolving credit facility.
Through June 27, 2015, the Company was in compliance with all applicable financial covenants included in the terms of its senior unsecured notes, senior secured term loan facility and senior secured asset-based revolving credit facility.
The Company also has lines of credit with two banks that provide for borrowings of Japanese yen for the Company’s Japanese subsidiary, equivalent to an aggregate of approximately $9.7 million. There were no outstanding borrowings under these lines of credit at June 27, 2015.
The Company believes that its cash and cash equivalents, funds available under its senior secured asset-based revolving credit facility and international credit facilities and cash flow generated from operations will be sufficient to meet its working capital and investment requirements for at least the next twelve months. If available liquidity is not sufficient to meet the Company’s operating and debt service obligations as they come due, management would need to pursue alternative arrangements through additional equity or debt financing in order to meet the Company’s cash requirements. There can be no assurance that any such financing would be available on commercially acceptable terms.

At June 27, 2015, the Company’s shareholders’ equity was $777.6 million, up nominally from $748.4 million at the beginning of the year. The increase mainly reflected net income of $39.3 million, additional paid-in capital of $5.1 million associated with the Company’s share-based compensation expense. Among other factors, these increases were partly offset by the taxes paid related to the issuance and net settlement of equity awards of $1.4 million and foreign currency translation effects of $15.0 million, the latter factor of which is mainly associated with the strengthening of the U.S. dollar versus other currencies, primarily the Malaysian ringgit, Japanese yen and Euro.
As of June 27, 2015, the Company’s sources of available funds were its cash and cash equivalents of $313.7 million, funds available under its $75 million senior secured asset-based revolving credit facility and international credit facilities, and cash flow generated from operations. As of June 27, 2015, the amount of cash and cash equivalents associated with indefinitely reinvested foreign earnings was $232.2 million. These amounts held by foreign subsidiaries are generally subject to U.S. income taxation on repatriation to the United States. The Company does not anticipate the need to repatriate funds to the United States to satisfy domestic liquidity needs arising in the ordinary course of business and believes its existing balances of domestic cash and cash equivalents and operating cash flows will be sufficient to meet the Company’s domestic cash needs arising in the ordinary course of business for the next twelve months.
New Accounting Pronouncements
Recently adopted accounting pronouncements There were no recently issued accounting pronouncement adopted during the six months ended June 27, 2015.
Recently issued accounting pronouncements Refer to Note 1 to the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements for a discussion of accounting pronouncements recently issued by not yet adopted.

Non-GAAP Information The Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP).

The Company also provides certain non-GAAP financial measures as a complement to financial measures provided in accordance with GAAP in order to better assess and reflect trends affecting the Company’s business and results of operations. Regulation G, “Conditions for Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” and other regulations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, define and prescribe the conditions for use of certain non-GAAP financial information. The Company provides non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Operating Income together with related measures thereof, and non-GAAP Earnings Per Share (EPS).

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP term, is defined by the Company as net income (loss) before (1) equity in net loss of affiliates, (2) income tax expense (benefit), (3) interest expense (4) interest income (5) other (income) expense, net, (6) charge for the fair value write-up of acquired inventory sold, (7) transaction-related costs, (8) deal costs, (9) integration costs, (10) contingent consideration fair value adjustment, (11) amortization of intangible assets and (12) depreciation. Adjusted Operating Income, another non-GAAP term, is defined by the Company as Adjusted EBITDA exclusive of the depreciation addback noted above. The Company also utilizes non-GAAP measures whereby Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Operating Income are each divided by the Company’s net sales to derive Adjusted EBITDA Margin and Adjusted Operating Margin, respectively.

Non-GAAP EPS, a non-GAAP term, is defined by the Company as net (loss) income before (1) charge for fair value write-up of acquired inventory sold, (2) transaction-related costs, (3) deal costs, (4) integration costs, (5) (gain) loss on impairment and sale of equity investment, (6) contingent consideration fair value adjustment, (7) amortization of intangible assets and (8) the tax effect of those adjustments to net income (loss).

The charge for fair value write-up of acquired inventory sold, transaction-related costs, deal costs and integration costs adjustments underlying Adjusted EBITDA and Non-GAAP EPS relate specifically to the ATMI acquisition.
The Company provides supplemental non-GAAP financial measures to better understand and manage its business and believes these measures provide investors and analysts additional and meaningful information for the assessment of the Company’s ongoing results. Management also uses these non-GAAP measures to assist in the evaluation of the performance of its business segments and to make operating decisions.
Management believes the Company’s non-GAAP measures help indicate the Company’s baseline performance before certain gains, losses or other charges that may not be indicative of the Company’s business or future outlook and offer a useful view of business performance in that the measures provide a more consistent means of comparing performance. The Company believes the non-GAAP measures aid investors’ overall understanding of the Company’s results by providing a higher degree of transparency for such items and providing a level of disclosure that will help investors understand how management plans, measures and evaluates the Company’s business performance. Management believes that the inclusion of non-GAAP measures provides consistency in its financial reporting and facilitates investors’ understanding of the Company’s historical operating trends by providing an additional basis for comparisons to prior periods.

24


Management uses Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Operating Income to assist it in evaluations of the Company’s operating performance by excluding items that management does not consider as relevant in the results of its ongoing operations. Internally, these non-GAAP measures are used by management for planning and forecasting purposes, including the preparation of internal budgets; for allocating resources to enhance financial performance; for evaluating the effectiveness of operational strategies; and for evaluating the Company’s capacity to fund capital expenditures, secure financing and expand its business.
In addition, and as a consequence of the importance of these non-GAAP financial measures in managing its business, the Company’s Board of Directors uses non-GAAP financial measures in the evaluation process to determine management compensation.
The Company believes that certain analysts and investors use Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Operating Income and non-GAAP EPS as supplemental measures to evaluate the overall operating performance of firms in the Company’s industry. Additionally, lenders or potential lenders use Adjusted EBITDA measures to evaluate the Company’s creditworthiness.
The presentation of non-GAAP financial measures is not meant to be considered in isolation, as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures or information provided in accordance with GAAP. Management strongly encourages investors to review the Company’s consolidated financial statements in their entirety and to not rely on any single financial measure.
Management notes that the use of non-GAAP measures has limitations:
First, non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized. Accordingly, the methodology used to produce the Company’s non-GAAP financial measures is not computed under GAAP and may differ notably from the methodology used by other companies. For example, the Company’s non-GAAP measure of Adjusted EBITDA may not be directly comparable to EBITDA or an adjusted EBITDA measure reported by other companies.
Second, the Company’s non-GAAP financial measures exclude items such as amortization and depreciation that are recurring. Amortization of intangibles and depreciation have been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense with an impact upon the Company’s results of operations, notwithstanding the lack of immediate impact upon cash flows.
Third, there is no assurance the Company will not have future restructuring activities, translation-related costs, gains or losses on sale of equity investments, or similar items and, therefore, may need to record additional charges (or credits) associated with such items, including the tax effects thereon. The exclusion of these items from the Company’s non-GAAP measures should not be construed as an implication that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.

25


Management considers these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures and evaluating these non-GAAP financial measures together with their most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The calculations of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Operating Income, and non-GAAP EPS, and reconciliations between these financial measures and their most directly comparable GAAP equivalents are presented below in the accompanying tables.
