|99.1||Press release dated April 21, 2010|
DANBURY, Conn., April 21, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ATMI, Inc. (Nasdaq:ATMI) today reported revenues of $85.3 million for the first quarter of 2010, which represents significant growth compared to $37.4 million in the first quarter of 2009. Revenue growth across all product lines was driven by higher consumer electronics demand, resulting in increased wafer starts and fab utilization during the first quarter versus the reduced demand associated with the global economic downturn in 2009. Net income was $8.7 million, compared to a net loss of $18.4 million a year ago that included unusual non-cash pretax charges of $11.2 million. Earnings per diluted share was $0.27, including $0.02 of one-time benefit associated with an investment gain and a tax adjustment, compared with a loss per diluted share of $0.59 in the first quarter of 2009 that included $0.23 from unusual charges.
"Customer and end-use device demand was stronger than expected this quarter," said Doug Neugold, ATMI Chief Executive Officer and President. "There are encouraging signs that support a sustained rebound in the semiconductor industry, and we have confidence that our lower cost infrastructure established during the downturn provides more efficient capacity to handle the increased demand. We are enthusiastic about the near term prospects for our traditional products as well as those for the many products we are developing for leading edge processes."
"We believe our revenues during the quarter grew at a rate greater than the overall market, due to strength in our life sciences products and evidence of some localized SDS® inventory stocking," said Tim Carlson, Chief Financial Officer. "Volume, favorable product mix and continued cost control resulted in an increase in gross margin to 48.9%. We generated $19.5 million in cash from operations. Our business model and strong balance sheet provide us financial and strategic flexibility to take advantage of opportunities in the marketplace. As previously announced, increased research and development investment related to our high productivity development platform will cause quarterly R&D spending to increase by approximately $3 million for the remaining quarters of 2010."
