Olin Winchester Reports Unaudited Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 30, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Third Quarter of 2015

Olin Winchester reported unaudited earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported sales of $194.2 million against $181.0 million a year ago. Income from continuing operations before income taxes was $33.9 million against $33.1 million a year ago. The increase in sales compared to the second quarter of 2014 reflects increased shipments to commercial, law enforcement and military customers. The increase in earnings reflects the impact of lower commodity and material costs and lower manufacturing and other costs, partially offset by a less favorable product mix. For the six months, the company reported sales of $372.9 million against $381.6 million a year ago. Income from continuing operations before income taxes was $63.7 million against $71.4 million a year ago. For the third quarter of 2015, the company’s earnings are expected to be comparable to third quarter 2014 levels.
