Sales were up 21.4 percent versus $229.5 million in the prior years fourth quarter and net income was down 12.3 percent versus $48.0 million last year due to greater tax benefits from U.S. tax reform, representing 20.9 percent of sales.

Diluted adjusted earnings per share were $1.07 excluding certain items of $0.08 per share which are primarily costs related to the acquisition of the CapaTM caprolactone business from Perstorp Holding AB, net of an additional benefit associated with U.S. tax reform. This compares to adjusted earnings per share of $0.45 in the prior year quarter. Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) of $73.3 million were up 39.4 percent versus fourth quarter 2017 adjusted EBITDA of $52.6 million. Ingevitys fourth quarter adjusted EBITDA margin of 26.3 percent was up 340 basis points from the prior years fourth quarter adjusted EBITDA margin of 22.9 percent.

For the full year, net sales were $1.13 billion and net income was $181.8 million, representing 16.0 percent of sales. Sales were up 16.6 percent versus $972.4 million in the prior year and net income increased 25.2 percent versus $145.2 million last year, representing 14.9 percent of sales.

Ingevitys 2018 adjusted EBITDA margin of 28.3 percent was up 330 basis points from the prior years adjusted EBITDA margin of 25.0 percent.

We delivered an outstanding quarter that exceeded our expectations and capped off another very strong year for Ingevity, said Michael Wilson, president and CEO, Ingevity. In what is seasonally a slower quarter, we realized higher volumes and improved price and mix. Our profitability was additionally aided by lower raw materials costs. These positives were partially offset by higher freight and distribution costs, higher spending related to plant outages and increased legal expenses.

Looking at the full year 2018, Wilson said that the company executed its business plans well and delivered excellent financial results. Whats more, we made significant progress on each of the elements of our strategy thereby keeping us on track to reach our long-term Target 2022 objectives, he said. Were running our business efficiently, creating value for our customers, continuing to improve our productivity, broadening our geographic reach and accelerating our organic and inorganic growth.

Truly, our employees put forth a great effort this year, said Wilson. Because of them, the company is performing well, realizing our potential and continuing to reward our shareholders.

Reportable Segment Financial Results

Performance Chemicals: Segment sales in the fourth quarter 2018 were $166.1 million, up $27.6 million, or 19.9 percent, versus prior year quarter. Segment operating profit was $21.0 million, up $10.9 million, or 108 percent, versus the prior year quarter segment operating profit. This translates to segment operating margin of 12.6 percent compared to the prior year quarter of 7.3 percent. Segment EBITDA were $30.4 million, up $15.2 million, or 100 percent, versus the prior year quarter segment EBITDA. Segment EBITDA margin rose 730 basis points to 18.3 percent.

The sharp increase in segment revenues reflects the additive benefit of the Georgia-Pacific pine chemicals acquisition to sales to oilfield and industrial specialties customers, said Wilson. Growth in the oilfield application was also augmented by strength in U.S. drilling, despite some softening later in the quarter as customers reacted to uncertainty in the market. In industrial specialties, we achieved strong growth in adhesives; continued to drive sales in niche applications such as agricultural and lubricants; and benefitted from higher selling prices for tall oil fatty acid (TOFA). Wilson said that revenues in pavement technologies, while seasonally slow in North America, were supplemented by continued penetration in international markets such as Peru and China.

We are concertedly moving toward higher margin applications sometimes at the expense of volumes in lower margin businesses, such as printing inks, said Wilson. The net impact of these price and mix benefits was a substantial improvement in segment margins.

For the full year 2018, segment sales were $733.2 million, up $110.1 million, or 17.7 percent, versus 2017. Segment operating profit was $116.3 million, up $36.0 million, or 44.8 percent, versus the prior year segment operating profit. This translates to segment operating margin of 15.9 percent compared to prior year quarter of 12.9 percent. Segment EBITDA were $151.1 million, up $50.2 million, or 49.8 percent, versus the prior year segment EBITDA. Segment EBITDA margins increased 440 basis points to 20.6 percent.

Performance Materials: Segment sales in the fourth quarter 2018 were $112.5 million, up $21.5 million, or 23.7 percent, versus prior year quarter. Segment operating profit was $37.4 million, up $4.9 million, or 15.1 percent, versus the prior year quarter segment operating profit. This translates to segment operating margin of 33.2 percent compared to prior year quarter of 35.7 percent. Segment EBITDA were $42.9 million, up $5.5 million, or 14.7 percent, versus the prior year segment EBITDA. Segment EBITDA margin decreased 300 basis points to 38.1 percent.

Volumes, particularly in sales of ˜honeycomb products to meet U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier 3 and California LEV III automotive gasoline emission standards, drove increases in revenues and earnings, Wilson said. In addition, we also saw strong revenue growth in pellet products in the quarter signaling the beginning of regulatory adoption in China and, to a lesser degree, Europe of new, more stringent standards. Regulatory drivers were complemented by a 2.2 percent increase in North American light vehicle production. Wilson also noted that the company successfully replaced an activation kiln at its Covington, Virginia, facility in October. This planned outage “ along with higher legal expenses “ impacted segment margins.

For the full year 2018, segment sales were $400.4 million, up $51.1 million, or 14.6 percent, versus 2017. Segment operating profit was $147.2 million, up $25.2 million, or 20.7 percent, versus the prior year segment operating profit. This translates to segment operating margin of 36.8 percent compared to prior year quarter of 34.9 percent. Segment EBITDA were $169.4 million, up $27.6 million, or 19.5 percent, versus the prior year segment EBITDA. Segment EBITDA margins increased 170 basis points to 42.3 percent.

Outlook

Ingevity announced its fiscal year 2019 guidance for sales between $1.30 billion and $1.36 billion and adjusted EBITDA between $390 million and $410 million.

Including our acquisition of the Capa caprolactone business, at the mid-point of our guidance, we expect to increase revenues about 18 percent and earnings by almost 25 percent versus 2018, Wilson said. Our strategy is sound, and our people are ready and motivated to execute and turn in another strong year for Ingevity.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures Ingevity has presented certain financial measures which have not been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Definitions of our non-GAAP financial measures and a reconciliation to the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP are included in the financial schedules accompanying this news release, under the section entitled Non-GAAP Financial Measures.

A reconciliation of net income to adjusted EBITDA as projected for 2019 is not provided. Ingevity does not forecast net income as it cannot, without unreasonable effort, estimate or predict with certainty various components of net income. These components, net of tax, include additional separation costs associated with the separation from WestRock; further restructuring and other income (charges), net; additional acquisition and other related costs in connection with the acquisition of Georgia-Pacifics pine chemical business and Perstorp Holding ABs Capa caprolactone business; additional pension and postretirement settlement and curtailment (income) charges; and revisions due to future guidance and assessment of U.S. tax reform. Additionally, discrete tax items could drive variability in our projected effective tax rate. All of these components could significantly impact such financial measures. Further, in the future, other items with similar characteristics to those currently included in adjusted EBITDA, that have a similar impact on comparability of periods, and which are not known at this time, may exist and impact adjusted EBITDA.

Ingevity Corporation

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Ingevity has presented certain financial measures, defined below, which have not been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and has provided a reconciliation to the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP. These financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP.

We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide management as well as investors, potential investors, securities analysts and others with useful information to evaluate the performance of the business, because such measures, when viewed together with our financial results computed in accordance with GAAP, provide a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting our historical financial performance and projected future results.

Ingevity uses the following non-GAAP measures:

Adjusted earnings (loss) is defined as net income (loss) attributable to Ingevity stockholders plus restructuring and other (income) charges, separation costs, acquisition and other related costs, pension and postretirement settlement and curtailment (income) charges and the income tax expense (benefit) on those items, less the benefit from U.S. Tax Reform.

Diluted adjusted earnings (loss) per share is defined as diluted earnings (loss) per common share attributable to Ingevity stockholders plus restructuring and other (income) charges, net per share, separation costs per share, acquisition and other related costs per share, pension and postretirement settlement and curtailment (income) charges per share and the income tax expense (benefit) per share on those items, less the per share tax benefit from U.S. Tax Reform.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) plus provision for income taxes, interest expense, net, depreciation and amortization, restructuring and other (income) charges, separation costs and acquisition and other related costs, pension and postretirement settlement and curtailment (income) charges.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by Net Sales.

Segment EBITDA is defined as segment operating profit plus depreciation and amortization.

Segment EBITDA Margin is defined as Segment EBITDA divided by Net Segment Sales.

The Company also uses the above financial measures as the primary measures of profitability used by managers of the business and its segments. In addition, the Company believes Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Segment EBITDA and Segment EBITDA Margin are useful measures because they exclude the effects of financing and investment activities as well as non-operating activities. These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to replace the presentation of financial results in accordance with GAAP and investors should consider the limitations associated with these non-GAAP measures, including the potential lack of comparability of these measures from one company to another. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures are set forth within the following pages.

A reconciliation of net income to adjusted EBITDA as projected for 2019 is not provided. Ingevity does not forecast net income as it cannot, without unreasonable effort, estimate or predict with certainty various components of net income. These components, net of tax, include additional separation costs associated with the separation from WestRock; further restructuring and other income (charges), net; additional acquisition and other related costs in connection with the acquisition of Georgia-Pacifics pine chemical business and Perstorp Holding ABs Capa caprolactone business; additional pension and postretirement settlement and curtailment (income) charges; and revisions due to future guidance and assessment of U.S. tax reform. Additionally, discrete tax items could drive variability in our projected effective tax rate. All of these components could significantly impact such financial measures. Further, in the future, other items with similar characteristics to those currently included in adjusted EBITDA, that have a similar impact on comparability of periods, and which are not known at this time, may exist and impact adjusted EBITDA.
