Sales decreased 8.8% to $664.7 million in the second quarter 2015 versus $728.5 million in the comparable 2014 period primarily due to lower volumes and unfavorable foreign currency translation.

The company spent approximately 1/3 less on capital expenditures versus prior year at $17 million in the quarter.
