Operator

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the DMC Global Third Quarter Earnings Call. [Operator Instructions] It is now my pleasure to turn the floor over to host, Geoff High, VP of Investor Relations. Sir, the floor is yours.

Geoff High -- Vice President of Investor Relations and Corporate Communications

Hello, and welcome to DMC's Third Quarter Conference Call. Presenting today are President and CEO, Kevin Longe and CFO, Mike Kuta. I'd like to remind everyone that matters discussed during this call may include forward-looking statements that are based on our estimates, projections and assumptions as of today's date, and are subject to risks and uncertainties that are disclosed in our filings with the SEC. Our business is subject to certain risks that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated in our forward-looking statements. DMC assumes no obligation to update forward-looking statements that become untrue because of subsequent events. A webcast replay of today's call will be available at dmcglobal.com after the call. In addition, a telephone replay will be available approximately two hours after the call. Details for listening to the replay are available in today's news release.

And with that I will now turn the call over to Kevin Longe. Kevin?

Kevin T. Longe -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Thank you, Geoff, and good afternoon everyone. Activity in DMC's primary end markets continued to improve during the third quarter. However, the recovery was accompanied by various short-term challenges that negatively affected our operational and financial performance. Supply chain bottlenecks and travel restrictions impacted international sales at DynaEnergetics, our energy products business, while delayed deliveries of metal plates slowed manufacturing activity at NobelClad, our composite metals business. These factors led to consolidated third quarter sales that were 4% or $2.8 million below the low end of our forecasted range.

An important development during the quarter was the improved demand DynaEnergetics experienced in its U.S. onshore oil and gas market. Third quarter unit sales of DynaEnergetics fully integrated factory assembled DS perforating systems, increased 19% versus the second quarter. This was well above the increase in unconventional well completions, which were up 6% sequentially according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. As unconventional completion activity accelerates, the superior safety, efficiency, and reliability of our DS systems becomes increasingly important to our customers. This is especially true in a tight labor market. Since DS systems are delivered just in time to the well site, our customers can streamline the supply chain, eliminate assembly operations and reduce the number of people on location.

While well completion activity improved during the quarter, pricing pressure remained a significant challenge. Rising labor and raw material costs have only intensified the pressure on margins. Crude prices have increased approximately 75% since the start of the year and have significantly improved the health of the exploration and production industry. Operators are now increasing their capital spending budgets in anticipation of the coming year, and we believe this should help improve the health and profitability of the industry that supports these E&P companies.

On Tuesday, DynaEnergetics announced a 5% global price increase that will take effect on November 22. The increase is intended to offset higher labor and input costs, as well as the anticipated wind-down of the CARES Act. DynaEnergetics' substantial investments in new technologies have resulted in a robust product portfolio that has improved the safety efficiency and effectiveness of our customers' operations and has led to increased productivity, profitability, and job creation in our industry. The significance of these investments is reflected in the approximately 80 patents we have been granted in the more than 400 patent applications we have filed. Our patent strategy is designed to protect our investments and provide transparency, so others can innovate without violating our intellectual property. Despite this, a number of competitors are selling products that we believe infringe on DynaEnergetics patents. During the third quarter, we intensified our legal action against several of these companies spending $2.3 million on patent litigation. We intend to continue these expenditures until the issues are resolved. Our commitment of resources to this process reflects our belief that if intellectual property is not protected, the incentive to innovate is lost and the sustainability of the industry is threatened.

The outlook in DynaEnergetics' international markets is improving. DynaEnergetics recently entered into a global supply agreement with a large international service company, and also was awarded two Middle Eastern projects that will be shipped over the next few quarters. Based on current activity, all indications are that 2022 will be a strong year for DynaEnergetics' international business. At NobelClad interest continues to grow from the new data pipe product offering, and we anticipate initial orders by early next year. In addition, pricing continues to strengthen for various clotting metals, and NobelClad has improved its commercial organization and strengthened its sales team and market specialists. We are encouraged by the strengthening economy and improving demand in our key markets. We have maintained a strong financial position and operate 2 highly innovative businesses that continue to lead their industries.

With that, I'll turn the call over to Mike for a review of our third-quarter financial results and a look at fourth-quarter guidance, Mike?

Michael Kuta -- Chief Financial Officer

Thanks, Kevin. Third quarter sales were $67.2 million, up 3% sequentially and up 22% versus last year's third quarter. DynaEnergetics reported third quarter sales of $44.2 million, up 5% sequentially and 29% versus the same quarter last year. North America sales increased 14% sequentially, while international sales decreased 38% sequentially. Sales at NobelClad were $22.9 million, down 1% sequentially and up 9% versus last year's third quarter. Consolidated gross margin in the third quarter was 25%, down from 26% in the second quarter of 2021 and flat compared to last year's third quarter. Third quarter gross margin benefited from improved project mix at NobelClad which was offset by a decline in international sales and higher material costs at DynaEnergetics. DynaEnergetics reported third quarter gross margin of 22% versus 25% in the 2021 second quarter and 24% in last year's third quarter.

Gross margin in all 2021 quarters includes the effects of the employee retention credits related to the CARES Act, while last year's third quarter benefited from higher margin international sales that were approximately $4.6 million greater than this year's third quarter. NobelClad reported third quarter gross margin of 30% versus 28% in the second quarter, and 26% in the year ago third third quarter primarily due to improved project mix. The CARES Act credits also contributed to higher gross margin versus last year.

Looking at our third quarter expenses. Consolidated SG&A of $15.3 million increased 9% versus the second quarter and 32% versus the year ago third quarter. The sequential increase primarily relates to step up in patent litigation expense at DynaEnergetics. We reported consolidated operating income of $1.1 million. Third quarter net income was $403,000 or $0.02 per diluted share, versus adjusted net income of $1.2 million or $0.08 per diluted share in last year's third quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was $5.8 million versus $6 million in last year's third quarter. DynaEnergetics reported third quarter adjusted EBITDA of $3.6 million while NobelClad reported adjusted EBITDA of $4.6 million. We ended the third quarter with cash and marketable securities of $182 million after raising $123.5 million in the equity offering in May. Our total outstanding share count is now 18.7 million.

Looking at guidance. Fourth quarter sales are expected to be in a range of $68 million to $74 million versus the $67.2 million reported in the 2021 third quarter. At the business level, DynaEnergetics is expected to report fourth quarter sales in a range of $46 million to $50 million versus the $44.2 million reported in the third quarter. We anticipate that international sales will bounce back in the fourth quarter.

NobelClad sales are expected in a range of $22 million to $24 million versus the $22.9 million reported in the 2021 third quarter. NobelClad's fourth quarter sales forecast includes $8.8 million related to a previously announced order from the chemical industry. Receipt of the raw materials required to produce the order have been delayed due to supply chain bottlenecks. While NobelClad still expects to receive the materials and ship the order during the fourth quarter, there remains a risk that some or all of the shipment will occur after year-end.

Consolidated gross margin is expected in a range of 23% to 24% versus 25% in the third quarter. Fourth quarter selling, general and administrative expense is expected to be approximately $15 million to $16 million versus the $15.3 million reported last quarter. Amortization expense is expected to be approximately $200,000. Adjusted EBITDA is expected in a range of $5 million to $6 million versus the $5.8 million in the third quarter of 2021. The fourth quarter adjusted EBITDA forecast includes litigation expense of $2 million. It seems the previously enacted CARES Act legislation remains in effect through year-end. Fourth quarter capital expenditures are expected in a range of $2 million to $4 million. DMC's full year tax rate is expected in a range of 31% to 33%.

With that, we're ready to take any questions. Operator?

Questions and Answers:

Operator

Ladies and gentlemen, the floor is now open for questions. [Operator Instructions] Your first question is coming from Tommy Moll. Your line is live.

Tommy Moll -- Stephens, Inc. -- Analyst

Good afternoon and thanks for taking my questions.

Kevin T. Longe -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yeah, so, good afternoon, Tommy.

Tommy Moll -- Stephens, Inc. -- Analyst

Kevin, I wanted to start on the price increase you recently announced for DynaEnergetics. Specifically, if you could give us an update on the industry and competitive environment there. What gave you the confidence to go ahead and move forward again with implementing the increase? And then in terms of the timing I noted, looks like it's set to become effective late November. So not a whole lot of volumes there in the rest of the year, should we think of this strategically is as a message for the customer base to really start sinking toward their 2022 outlooks, because that -- just given that's right around when there will be a big budget planning season for next year on a -- presumably a much higher crude deck than currently in place?

Kevin T. Longe -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yes, Tom -- Tommy., I think you've read that well, it is messaging. Prices need to go up in our industry. The price increase that we announced in the first quarter did take effect in the second quarter. Actually we did not get support from the industry on that price increase, and so we ended up rolling that back, which impacted our -- initially impacted our volume in the second -- in the beginning of the third quarter. We rolled it back and you can see what happened to our North American land-based business in the third quarter. And so, the price increase is sorely needed. Prices are down significantly from where they were previously, and where it is healthy for our industry. We are seeing labor and material cost increases, supply chain cost increases, and and there is a CARES Act that in -- and for some companies will fall off in in the beginning of the year. And so, this will be the first of what will probably be two or three price increases over the next 12 to 18 months.

Tommy Moll -- Stephens, Inc. -- Analyst

That's helpful. Kevin, thank you. Also, I was hoping we could get an update on your M&A pipeline. Any way you could characterize it for us in terms of number of deals you've looked at, potential timing, any update on priority end markets, anything you could offer would be helpful.

Kevin T. Longe -- President and Chief Executive Officer

I think the only thing that we can say there Tommy, is that we're active and we've looked at some interesting things, it's less quantity than it is quality and strategic fit with our company, and -- but we don't have anything that we can talk about at this time.

Tommy Moll -- Stephens, Inc. -- Analyst

Fair enough. And if I could slip one more in, this is probably for Mike. Mike, just looking at your full year guidance on the tax rate. If I'm doing my math correctly, I've got to assume a pretty high rate in Q4. And I just want to understand if maybe I've missed something there or if there is something squirrely about the fourth quarter that you could clarify just as it will impact everyone's EPS assumption for the next quarter.

Michael Kuta -- Chief Financial Officer

Yeah. Our -- Tommy our tax rate is back -end loaded because we have discrete items in the first half of the year that drive the rate down. So therefore getting back to a 31% to 33% rate requires a higher back-end raise, so, you're reading that right.

Tommy Moll -- Stephens, Inc. -- Analyst

That's very helpful. Thanks for the time, and I'll turn it back.

Kevin T. Longe -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Thank you, Tom.

Operator

Your next question is coming from Stephen Gengaro. Your line is live.

Stephen Gengaro -- Stifel -- Analyst

Thanks, good afternoon, everybody.

Michael Kuta -- Chief Financial Officer

Good afternoon, Stephen.

Stephen Gengaro -- Stifel -- Analyst

So a couple of things and wanted to just follow up on Tommy's first question. With the price increase you announced earlier this week or the push to get it through November, are you seeing a change in behavior from your peers yet? What's -- is it higher activity expectations? What's giving you the confidence that a, you can get this through and then b, your subsequent comment you expect a couple of more in the next 12 months?

Kevin T. Longe -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yep. We have seen our hearing both through earnings calls and some activities in the marketplace of a couple of our major competitors who also feel that they need to increase prices to return margins to where they should be. So, I think that we're going to see, generally more support from a market standpoint, and the ultimate end used markets for our E&P customers are strong. I think the lack of being able to push through a price increase to date has more than driven by our customer market the wireline service companies has been oversupplied and relatively fragmented. There has been a lot of competition among our customers on price and so we've seen a lot of buying on price from the general market. And there is a number of service companies who have not fully adopted, adjusting time delivered to the well site model where they've maintained the vertical integration in building perforating guns. And so, the industry is, I guess reverted to a component industry in a low price market. We haven't seen as much system sales from the major companies. And we've seen a lot of these -- the smaller machine shops that are making partially assembled carriers in carrying the litigation risk if you will, by violating our IP, be a larger part of the market. And we think that, that part of the market is going to be challenged not just by our legal actions, but also by their own lack of profitability and rising material costs.

And so we feel we're in a pretty good position. It's taken longer for some of the attrition and consolidation that we think is necessary in our market to take place. But at the end of the day, our systems are lower in costs for our service company customers. Even though the initial price may be higher, we do get a premium over other systems, but we are supporting our customers right now who are competing against other wireline service companies that are with the more commodity-like component mentality at this time.

Stephen Gengaro -- Stifel -- Analyst

Okay. And then as we -- that's helpful. And as we think about -- the 4Q guide you mentioned -- I think Mike mentioned international recovering a bit, which which kind of sounds like that means U.S. dime is pretty flat. And that's a little surprising given what's probably activity growth? What we're seeing as far as -- is that year-end seasonality concerns? Or is there something else in there that I should be thinking about?

Kevin T. Longe -- President and Chief Executive Officer

There's a little bit of seasonality in North America, but we're actually -- the underlying volume of corporating systems that we're making are pretty healthy. What we need to see is the price increase starting to take hold. And we also expect the number of completions to accelerate going into 2022. There has somewhat been a slowdown in completions with the docks of the drilled, but not completed inventory declining dramatically over the last couple of quarters and CapEx moving more toward drilling and -- but that's just bodes well for completions in the New Year. And so we're very excited about the hand that we have going into the new year.

Michael Kuta -- Chief Financial Officer

And Steve -- Stephen, just quickly, this is Mike on the international front, I mean, we see that in the 6 and the -- $6 million to $6.5 million range in the fourth quarter off a $4.6 million in Q3. So I still show the North America growing at the bottom end of what we're thinking North America is going to do for DynaEnergetics.And we still think that's going to be on the bottom end flat to slightly up and with some upside to that.

Stephen Gengaro -- Stifel -- Analyst

Okay. Okay. That's helpful and then just one more from me. You -- when you think about--we think about your history -- and you sort of looking ahead at 22, I believe, and I got to check the number exactly, but your incremental margins your incremental operating margins on the Dyn --I guess on both businesses really, but I'm thinking Dynamic specifically. They've been really healthy right? They've been kind of -- I think Kevin, you've sort of referenced like a 40% mark when things are normalized. Should we expect that type of incremental next year as we go through, given pricing expectations off of weak pricing plus activity growth? Or am I missing something?

Kevin T. Longe -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yeah I think -- so you'll definitely see the incremental margin improving as the year goes on. We're walking into -- walking through our price increases, staging those throughout the year, and at the same time that the volumes picking up. I will say too we require significantly fewer people at the well site and in our service company customers operations. And in a tight labor market that volume is picking up. If it plays into our integrated system delivered to the well site both, we should see an improvement in share and an improvement in margin as we get the price increases implemented. We -- so, we should see that unfolding as the year continues. We probably won't get to that 40% by the end of the year, but we should be fairly strong. Mike, do you want to?

Michael Kuta -- Chief Financial Officer

Yeah. And just as a reminder, NobelClad is usually in that 40% to 45% range and historically on the contribution margin level and DynaEnergetics is also been in that 40%, 45% range. And so I think, as we enter 2022 and as we get price increases we're going to be in the low 30s on the contribution margin. As we get a couple of price increases across, I think we're going to start to approach that 40% contribution level as we exit and get in the back half of 2022 and exit 2022.

Stephen Gengaro -- Stifel -- Analyst

Okay, great. No, that's helpful. I'll get back in line. Thank you.

[Operator Instructions] Your next question is coming from Taylor Zurcher. Your line is live.

Taylor Zurcher -- Tudor, Pickering Holt -- Analyst

Hey Kevin, Mike. Thanks for taking my question. My first one is on Dyna. I'm just -- hopefully you guys could just give us a bit more color on the walk down in margins at least at the adjusted EBITDA line at Dyna, Q3 versus Q2. You talked about some of the issues going on internationally, there was less favorable mix, which is pretty clear. But in total. I suspect that the volumes were up. They certainly were in North America, sequentially. So, could you maybe talk to what the margin differential is between international and North America and whether the margins in North America, might have actually tick lower sequentially if some of these inflationary items ramped up more dramatically than you might have thought previously?

Michael Kuta -- Chief Financial Officer

Yeah, so, hi Taylor. I think that when you look at DynaEnergetics, 25% gross margin in June quarter versus September quarter of 22%, the largest driver there, was really the lower international mix which does carry higher margins than what we have here in the U.S. We also had the supply chain issues, we had some raw material inflation driving that as well, but the largest factor was a mix, driving us from 25% to 22%.

Taylor Zurcher -- Tudor, Pickering Holt -- Analyst

Okay. And as we think about a 5% price increase for November and beyond, does that just keep margins flat on a unit economic basis or is there some net momentum embedded in that 5% increase?

Kevin T. Longe -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Excluding the CARES Act, there is a fair amount of debt momentum in that Taylor. We're in a fortunate position where we feel that we're managing our supply chain and our operations very well from a cost standpoint. And a lot of the inflation that we've seen is already embedded in the margins, and we're happy with our volume picking up. We have one challenge, one challenge only, and that's to continue to walk the industry through the merits of switching from a component-driven business to a systems business, particularly a systems business that is strong and intellectual property, and restoring some of the pricing that our customers are supportive of, but they're competing against other service companies who are less price-focused and margin focused. And so we're in a strong position and we also have the capital in place, not only for the existing demand but for the demand that we see over the next 18 to 24 months.

Taylor Zurcher -- Tudor, Pickering Holt -- Analyst

Okay. And last question for me is on International at Dyna. You talked about a -- I think you said a supply agreement with a large international service company and the a few -- a couple of awards in the Middle East. As we think about the next 12 months, or maybe just through 2022 feels, like international as a bunch of at least activity tailwinds working in its favor for 2022. I was hoping you could maybe just frame some realistic expectations for growth internationally in 2022. Do you think 2022 could get back to where you were in 2020 from an international sales perspective or is it still a little bit of a longer-term story there?

Kevin T. Longe -- President and Chief Executive Officer

We actually feel that 2022 will exceed where we were in 2020 internationally. The -- this quarter was a tough quarter, internationally, but with the projects or the large tenders that we were recently awarded, and most importantly the service agreement that we have with one of the leading customers is -- international companies, is really going to strengthen our international sales and we think exceeded quite a bit.

Taylor Zurcher -- Tudor, Pickering Holt -- Analyst

Got it. Thanks for the answers..

Kevin T. Longe -- President and Chief Executive Officer

And in fact, when I say quite a bit, we should be up 20% to 30% over where we were in 2020.

Taylor Zurcher -- Tudor, Pickering Holt -- Analyst

Makes sense. All right, thank you.

Your next question is coming from Gerry Sweeney. Your line is live.

Gerry Sweeney -- ROTH -- Analyst

Good afternoon, guys. Thanks for taking my call.

Kevin T. Longe -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yeah, good afternoon. Gerry.

Gerry Sweeney -- ROTH -- Analyst

Wanted to just -- one real question on NobelClad. Most of the stuff DynaEnergetics has been picked over. But obviously, some inflationary pressures metals, et cetera, if we look in back to NobelClad, I don't know, the last metal cycles, we saw, it turned out to be pretty positive. I think part of your customers, either you do the purchasing of metals and pass through the costs and there is even a markup on that. Is there an opportunity to see some improvement in NobelClad just from metals pricing if this trend continues?

Kevin T. Longe -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yes. And while we're not in the given guidance for the next year yet, NobelClad is a very -- has a differentiated product in service if you will, that -- and they have a very strong history and process for pricing by project in generating a 43% on average contribution margin that's based on the costs of the materials that are incorporated into the project at that time. They -- when they quote a project, the project is dependent -- the price is dependent on the price of metals at time of order, and then we place orders locked into those metals and it's reflected in a constant margin for that business. Most of their projects are out several months and we're starting to see higher metal pricing flowing through the quoting process and at the orders that are being placed, and it goes right into driving the revenues north if you will. So we feel that there is good momentum going into the new year for Dy -- for NobelClad in terms of metals pricing.

Gerry Sweeney -- ROTH -- Analyst

So constant margins -- so, margins are the same, but let's say gross profit dollars up just because the price -- the size of the project costs are up as well, right?

Kevin T. Longe -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Quite a bit. Yeah.

Gerry Sweeney -- ROTH -- Analyst

Yeah. Got it. Okay, that's it for me. I appreciate it. Thank you.

Operator

Your next question is coming from Stephen Gengaro. Your line's live.

Stephen Gengaro -- Stifel -- Analyst

Thanks. Two other quick ones, Kevin. Maybe the first ones not so quick, actually, but when you think about the Dyna business and you look at where you were a few years ago and the products started to gain immense traction in the market, right, and you guys obviously had a huge, huge run both driven by activity, but also an acceleration in the adoption of your technology. And then you sit here today and you look out to '22 and '23, which look like they're going to be pretty strong years based on E&P spending budgets and where commodity prices are, et cetera. What's different? Is there something that's different, whether it's the competitive landscape, whether it's the way the customers are taking in your techno -- is there anything that's changing? Or is it just a matter of activity growth and then the ability to realize the value you bring to the well site?

Kevin T. Longe -- President and Chief Executive Officer

One of the things that's changed is, we have a handful of these machine shops that are making the partially assembled carriers, which are approximately half the cost of the perforating gun, to our perforating system and violating our -- what we believe is violating our intellectual property and enabling them to assemble components that they buy externally into a perforating system that has some of the features that our systems have. You know it's not -- these companies are vertically integrated in the Energetics primarily. The systems are mismatched components that don't have the same operating safety and performance features as ours. And significantly, they violate our IP and we're actively going after these companies to stop them from using our IP on how they assemble these carriers. And we feel that we've had solid progress on all fronts, on the legal side of it. A lot of the stuff that we've been involved with legally has been jurisdictional or procedural jockeying around, but it hasn't been substantive. And we expect to positively impact our competitive landscape on our intellectual property over the next year, that will enable our business to continue the same dynamics that we had in 2017 and '18, '19, '20. We've maintained our position in the market, it's just been a really unsettled market over the last couple of years and we expect it to be more normalized, going forward.

Stephen Gengaro -- Stifel -- Analyst

Right. No, that's helpful. Thank you. And I guess, one quick one. The -- I think you referenced 19% sales growth -- unit growth in the U.S. market in the quarter. When we look at activity growth in 2022, would you expect your -- I mean, obviously, we'll see what happens with price, but would you expect your volume growth to outpace underlying facts stage growth?

Kevin T. Longe -- President and Chief Executive Officer

We would, and we expect to continue to gain share in this marketplace. And so we see unit volumes going up hope -- greater been 10%, probably in the 10% to 20% range, and we expect pricing to go up another 10% in the coming year. But we're not in the point of getting -- giving guidance yet for 2022, but we see share volume and pricing all benefiting DynaEnergetics in the coming year.

Stephen Gengaro -- Stifel -- Analyst

Right. Thank you for your help.

Your next question is coming from Tommy Moll. Your line is live.

Tommy Moll -- Stephens, Inc. -- Analyst

Thanks, Kevin. I just wanted to make sure I understood correctly, a couple of minutes ago, you referenced the contract award for Dyna on the international side should drive some pretty substantial growth internationally next year. I think I heard that correctly and did I hear you give a range somewhere in the 20% to 30% range? And just any other context, you could give us around that would help.

Kevin T. Longe -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yeah, I think we should see 20% to 30% with three things. There's two large tenders that business has been successful securing and a contract with a large service company.

Tommy Moll -- Stephens, Inc. -- Analyst

Great. Thank you for that clarification. I appreciate it. I'll turn it back.

Operator

There are no further questions from the lines at this time. I would now like to turn the floor back to Kevin Longe for closing remarks.

Kevin T. Longe -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Thank you everyone for joining our call today. While this was a difficult quarter, we believe the fundamentals are improving for our businesses. The recent price increase at DynaEnergetics is an important first step toward improving our margins, and we are encouraged by the strong increase in demand we are seeing for DynaEnergetics' product offering in North America, and by the strength that was mentioned earlier on our international business. We also are -- feel quite strong of the pricing dynamics are that NobelClad will have for the metals that goes into their products in the coming year as well as the new applications for data pipe. We remain very confident in the strength of DMC and we look forward to speaking with you again when we report our fourth quarter results. Thank you.

This article represents the opinion of the writer, who may disagree with the “official” recommendation position of a Motley Fool premium advisory service. We’re motley! Questioning an investing thesis -- even one of our own -- helps us all think critically about investing and make decisions that help us become smarter, happier, and richer.
