Algoma Central Corporation announced distribution of $0.07 per share, payable on March 2, 2015. Record date is February 16, 2015.

Algoma Central Corp. Reports Earnings Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014; Reports Impairment on Parts and Spares for the Third Quarter of 2014

Algoma Central Corp. reported earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported revenues of $163,950,000 compared to $146,947,000 for the same period in 2013. Most of the increase in revenue was from the Domestic Dry-Bulk segment as a result of strong customer demand and high fleet utilization. The other three segments reported revenues that were similar in both periods. Segment earnings after income taxes were $25,879,000 compared to $29,831,000 for the third quarter in 2013. The decrease was due to an impairment recorded in the quarter relating to a decline in value of major vessel parts and spares and to costs associated with two incidents in the quarter in the Domestic Dry-Bulk segment. Combined, these factors resulted in a $6,433,000 reduction in the Domestic Dry-Bulk segment earnings. Net earnings and basic earnings per share were $24,367,000 and $0.63, respectively, compared to $28,328,000 and $0.73, respectively, for the same period last year. For the nine months, Revenue was $354,021,000 compared to $342,634,000 for the first nine months of 2013. The increase was driven primarily by the Domestic Dry- Bulk segment due to strong customer demand and high fleet utilization. Segment earnings after income taxes were $22,209,000 for the 2014 nine month period compared to $24,573,000 for the first nine months of 2013, reflecting the second quarter results that were below expectations resulting primarily from the poor operating conditions in April and early May and to the third quarter factors mentioned above. These items were partially offset by stronger first quarter results related to lower spending on winter maintenance. The net earnings and basic earnings per share were $17,448,000 and $0.45, respectively, compared to $19,074,000 and $0.49, respectively, for the same period last year. The net earnings for 2014 include a lower net gain on foreign currency translation of $913,000 compared to $2,344,000 for the same period in 2013. The company reported impairment on parts and spares of $2,940,000 for the third quarter ended September 30, 2014.
