Hexion Inc. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Provides Capital Expenditure Guidance for the Year 2015

Hexion Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported net sales of USD 1,079 million against USD 1,293 million a year ago. Operating income was USD 63 million against USD 58 million a year ago. Loss before income tax and earnings from unconsolidated entities was USD 11 million against USD 16 million a year ago. Net loss was USD 34 million against USD 18 million a year ago. Net cash from operating activities was USD 35 million against net cash used in operating activities of USD 102 million a year ago. Capital expenditures were USD 40 million against USD 34 million a year ago. The decline in net revenues were primarily driven by the strengthening of the U.S. dollar against most other currencies and lower selling prices from the decline in oil prices globally, which more than offset gains in specialty epoxy business. Total EBITDA was USD 127 million against USD 120 million a year ago. The company continued to expect 2015 capital expenditures to be lower than capital spending in 2014.
