Axiall Corporation Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Fourth Quarter and Year Ended December 31, 2014; Provides Asset Impairment Charges for the Fourth Quarter of 2014; Provides Tax Rate Guidance for the Year of 2015

Axiall Corporation reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported net sales of $1,068.7 million against $1,134.5 million for the same period in the last year. Operating income was $1.9 million against $96.9 million for the same period in the last year. Loss before income taxes was $17.4 million against profit before tax of $80.1 million for the same period in the last year. Net loss attributable to the company was $13.8 million or $0.20 per basic and diluted share against net income attributable to the company of $57 million or $0.81 per basic and diluted share for the same period in the last year. Adjusted EBITDA was $101.4 million against $165.7 million for the same period in the last year. Adjusted net income was $13.6 million against $62.3 million for the same period in the last year.

Capital expenditures were $63.1 million against $87.6 million for the same period in the last year. As compared to the prior year, fourth quarter results were negatively impacted by several items, including, first, ECU values that are falling considerably on a year-over-year basis. This decline was particularly steep on the cost of component of the ECU. The falling oil prices also led to declining raw material costs in Aromatics. This resulted in a large loss for this segment. Additionally, natural gas costs were higher in the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to the same period last year. These impacts were partially offset by insurance recoveries related to the unplanned PHH outage in the first half of the year and higher vinyl margins. The total negative FIFO impact was about $36 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to a positive $10 million for the fourth quarter of 2013. For the year, the company reported net sales of $4,568.7 million against $4,666.0 million for the same period in the last year. Operating income was $134.1 million against $370.8 million for the same period in the last year. Income before income taxes was $57.7 million against $241.6 million for the same period in the last year. Net income attributable to the company was $46.3 million or $0.65 per diluted share against $165.3 million or $2.44 per diluted share for the same period in the last year. Adjusted EBITDA was $436.3 million against $672.0 million for the same period in the last year. Adjusted net income was $93.4 million against $266.1 million for the same period in the last year. Net cash provided by operating activities was $291.1 million against $325.7 million for the same period in the last year. Capital expenditures were $210.5 million against $196.1 million for the same period in the last year. For full year 2014, effective tax rate was 13%. For 2015, the company expects effective tax rate before onetime items to be in the range of 25% to 30%. During the fourth quarter of 2014, the company reported long-lived asset impairment charges, net of $16.6 million compared to $7.5 million a year ago.
