The company generated Adjusted EBITDA of $203.8 million, as compared to $208.1 million in the same period of 2014. On a Pro forma Adjusted EBITDA basis, the company would have generated $210.3 million as compared to a Pro forma Adjusted EBITDA of $282.1 million in the same period in 2014. The decrease in the Pro forma Adjusted EBITDA is attributable to lower finished product prices and the impact of foreign exchange rates as a function of the strengthening U.S. dollar as compared mainly to the euro and Canadian dollar, which were partially offset by an increase in raw material volumes.
The company expects to incur additional CapEx between $110 million and $130 million for the remainder of 2015, which includes planned investments in the 5 new processing plants and normal CapEx. The company expects its effective tax rate to decrease significantly to approximately 25% for the year 2015.
