Aleris Corporation announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016. For the quarter, the company reported revenues of $662.5 million compared to $746.2 million a year ago. Operating income was $23.0 million compared to loss of $17.5 million a year ago. Income from continuing operations before income taxes was $2.4 million compared to loss of $27.9 million a year ago. Loss from continuing operations was $6.3 million compared to $25.6 million a year ago. Net loss was $6.3 million compared to income of $105.5 million a year ago. Net loss attributable to the company was $6.3 million compared to income of $105.4 million a year ago. Total adjusted EBITDA was $44.5 million compared to $55.0 million a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $11.2 million compared to net cash used by operating activities of $120.3 million a year ago. Payments for property, plant and equipment were $122.0 million compared to $65.2 million a year ago. EBITDA was $46.8 million compared to $35.2 million a year ago. In the first quarter of 2016, capital expenditures were $122 million, the majority of which was spent on North America autobody sheet project at Lewisport, Kentucky facility and related spending to upgrade critical equipment and capabilities at the facility. The company provided earnings guidance for the second quarter and CapEx guidance for the full year of 2016. The company estimates second quarter 2016 segment income and adjusted EBITDA will be higher than both the first quarter of 2016 and the second quarter of 2015. Factors influencing anticipated second quarter 2016 performance include: global automotive and aerospace volumes expected to exceed prior year; improved North America building and construction and distribution volumes expected to more than offset lower truck trailer volumes; order patterns for regionally-based Europe plate and sheet products will continue to outpace prior year; unfavorable metal spreads, tight scrap supply and a weaker U.S. dollar will continue to impact results; and the company’s operating system expected to drive favorable productivity and improved operating performance to capitalize on strong demand. Capital expenditures during the second quarter of 2016 are expected to be higher than the second quarter of 2015. The company expects capital spending of approximately $350 million to $375 million in 2016, including the amounts spent in the first quarter of the year.
