Net cash provided by operating activities was $144.8 million against net cash used by operating activities of $29.3 million a year ago. Payments for property, plant and equipment was $54.4 million against $30.6 million a year ago. Total adjusted EBITDA was $68.2 million against $55.1 million a year ago.
For the nine months, the company reported revenues of $2,280.8 million against $2,149.3 million a year ago. Operating income was $0.1 million against operating income of $26.4 million a year ago. Loss from continuing operations before income taxes was $69.5 million against $40.9 million a year ago. Loss from continuing operations was $53.5 million against $38.2 million a year ago.

The company estimates fourth quarter 2015 segment income and adjusted EBITDA will be lower than the third quarter of 2015, due to normal seasonality, and in line with the fourth quarter of 2014 after excluding $4 million of one time benefits associated with electricity tax and carbon monoxide emissions credits that impacted the prior year. Factors influencing anticipated fourth quarter 2015 performance include: Global automotive and aerospace volumes expected to exceed prior year; Aerospace margins expected to benefit from a stronger U.S. dollar; European regional order patterns trending favorably; Continued year-over-year improvement in North America rolling margins; Anticipated de-stocking of inventory levels across North America customer base as customers reduce metal exposure and position for 2016; Weaker North America scrap spreads due to declining aluminum prices; and Aleris Operating System expected to drive favorable productivity. Capital expenditures during the fourth quarter of 2015 are expected to be significantly higher than the fourth quarter of 2014 and higher than third quarter of 2015 as work continues on upgrading and expanding capabilities in Lewisport, Kentucky.
The company expects capital spending of approximately $275 million to $300 million in 2015, including the amounts spent in the first three quarters of the year.
