Compelling Strategic and Financial Benefits
• Highly Complementary Combined CMP Portfolio Significantly Expands Served Markets and Provides
Customers with Comprehensive and Innovative Offering: Entegris will offer a compelling value proposition to
customers in the industry through a broader portfolio of solutions and enhanced operating capabilities, in the
fab environment and across the supply chain. The addition of CMC Materials’ leading CMP slurries and pads
will provide Entegris with a full end-to-end suite of CMP solutions, also including liquid filters (POU and bulk),
post-CMP cleaning chemistries and brushes, CMP pad conditioners, particle monitors and chemical packaging
products, enabling shorter development times for these solutions. The expanded portfolio will increase
Entegris’ growing served markets in semiconductor applications to approximately $12 billion as well as its
content per wafer opportunity, and it will increase Entegris’ unit-driven revenue from 70% to approximately
• Accelerates Innovation Capabilities through Greater R&D Scale and Expanded IP Portfolio: As customers
transition to more complex device architectures, there will be increased demand for higher-quality, higher performing technologies, delivered to market faster. Entegris will have greater capability to innovate and meet
evolving customer demand through the deployment of proven, industry-leading commercial, operational and
R&D capabilities. In addition, Entegris’ deep expertise in purification, contamination control and advanced
materials will enhance CMC Materials’ long-term technology advancement.
• Meaningful Revenue Growth and EPS Accretion: The transaction is expected to be significantly accretive to
non-GAAP EPS within the first year post-closing. Entegris expects to realize $75 million in run-rate cost
synergies and $40 million in CapEx synergies within 12 to 18 months from the closing of the transaction. In
addition, Entegris expects to drive meaningful revenue synergies through co-optimized solutions, cross-selling
opportunities and stronger customer response and collaboration.
• Strong Cash Flow Generation Enables Investments in Growth and Disciplined Deleveraging: Entegris is
targeting pro forma adjusted gross leverage of approximately 4.0x at closing. With approximately $1.1 billion
in adjusted EBITDA on a pro forma LTM basis including synergies, Entegris will be well positioned to rapidly
reduce its leverage to less than 3.0x, while investing in growth opportunities and continuing its dividend policy
for the benefit of Entegris and CMC Materials shareholders. Entegris plans to suspend share repurchases until
