NOVA Chemicals Corporation announced consolidated unaudited earnings results for third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported revenue of $1,427 million, operating profit $370 million, profit before income taxes of $348 million, profit for the period of $259 million, cash provided by operating activities of $423 million compared to the revenue of $1,263 million, operating profit of $207 million, profit before income taxes of $162 million, profit for the period of $120 million, cash provided by operating activities of $221 million for the same quarter a year ago. The quarter-over-quarter increase in net income was primarily due to higher margins in all business segments and lower finance costs, partially offset by higher income tax expense. For the year to date, the company reported revenue of $4,096 million, operating profit of $951 million, profit before income taxes of $901 million, profit for the period of $671 million, cash provided by operating activities of $789 million compared to the revenue of $3,884 million, operating profit of $784 million, profit before income taxes of $665 million, profit for the period of $506 million, cash provided by operating activities of $638 million for the same period a year ago. The increase in net income was primarily due to higher margins in the Polyethylene segment and lower finance costs, partially offset by lower margins in the Joffre Olefins and Corunna Olefins segments and higher income tax expense. During the third quarter and the first nine months of 2014, the capital expenditures continue to increase primarily due to continued spending on the NOVA 2020 growth projects. The company expects full year 2014 capital expenditures to be approximately $700 million. Capital expenditures for 2015 are now expected to be around $850 million.
