Armstrong World Industries, Inc. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Revises Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

Armstrong World Industries, Inc. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported net sales of $551.4 million compared to $590 million a year ago. Operating income was $35.8 million compared to $53.8 million a year ago. Net income was $3.8 million or $0.07 per diluted share compared to $18.1 million or $0.33 per diluted share a year ago. Excluding the unfavorable impact from foreign exchange of $20 million, net sales decreased 3.3% compared to the prior year period driven by lower volumes across all businesses which more than offset the impact from favorable price and mix. The decline in operating income and net income compared to the prior year period was impacted by higher non-cash U.S. Pension expense and separation costs related to the previously announced spin-off of the Flooring business. The declines in operating income and net income were also driven by the margin impact of lower volumes, increased SG&A expense and lower earnings from WAVE, which were only partially offset by favorable price and mix. The decline in net income was also impacted by state net operating loss write-offs as a result of a change in ownership under section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code in conjunction with the sale of stock by the Asbestos Trust in the first quarter of 2015. Adjusted EBITDA was $75 million compared to $83 million a year ago. Earnings before taxes, adjusted was $34 million compared to $39 million a year ago. Net earnings, adjusted were $21 million or $0.37 per share compared to $24 million or $0.43 per share a year ago. Free cash flow for the quarter was a use of $42 million, improved from last year by $14 million. Net debt was down $74 million driven by debt repayments. For the year 2105, EPS guidance is lowered by $0.05 as a result of the $3 million IRC Section 382 expense. The ranges for sales and EBITDA for the full year are unchanged from the initial guidance issued.
