Eastman Chemical Company Reports Earnings Results for the First Quarter of 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

Eastman Chemical Company reported earnings results for the first quarter of 2015. For the quarter, the company reported earnings, excluding non-core or non-recurring items, of $1.84 per diluted share versus $1.61 per diluted share for first quarter 2014. Reported earnings were $1.14 per diluted share versus $1.52 per diluted share for first quarter 2014. Sales revenue was $2.4 billion, a 6% increase compared with $2.3 billion in first quarter 2014, primarily due to sales revenue from the Taminco Corporation, Commonwealth Laminating & Coating Inc., and aviation turbine oil businesses acquired in 2014 partially offset by lower selling prices primarily due to lower raw material and energy costs. Operating earnings were $435 million compared with $383 million for first quarter 2014. The increase was primarily due to both improved spread, as lower raw material and energy costs exceeded lower selling prices, and earnings from acquired businesses. These were partially offset by lower earnings in the Fibers segment, an unfavorable shift in foreign currency exchange rates, and the negative impact of propane hedges. Reported operating earnings were $311 million compared with $361 million for first quarter 2014. Net cash provided by operating activities was $91 million against net cash used in operating activities of $30 million a year ago. Free cash flow was negative $34 million for the quarter. Capital expenditures totaled $125 million. The company effective tax rate for the quarter was 27%. For the full year of 2015, the company expects capital expenditures of between $700 million and $725 million, tax rate will be between 26% and 27%, reflecting the continued benefits of improved business operations. The company continue to do what company can to be at the lower end of that range.
