Ball Corporation Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 30, 2015; Provides Free Cash Flow Guidance for the Year 2015

Ball Corporation reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported net sales of $2,172.3 million against $2,291.9 million a year ago. Earnings before interest and taxes were $273.8 million against $255.9 million a year ago. Earnings before taxes were $237.8 million against $215.3 million a year ago. Net earnings attributable to the company were $160.4 million or $1.13 diluted per share against $153.1 million or $1.07 diluted per share a year ago. For the six months, the company reported net sales of $4,095.4 million against $4,298.7 million a year ago. Earnings before interest and taxes were $399.7 million against $473.3 million a year ago. Earnings before taxes were $265.3 million against $359.4 million a year ago.

Cash provided by operating activities was $211.7 million against $210.0 million a year ago. Capital expenditures were $227.7 million against $135.3 million a year ago. The company continues to expect 2015 free cash flow to be in the range of $600 million, excluding cash costs for the proposed Rexam acquisition, and the company has executed additional currency and interest rate hedges to mitigate risk related to the proposed acquisition and to lock in the transaction's purchase price economics. CapEx will likely be in the range of $450 million, up $50 million from previous estimate given year-to-date's project dollar spent. Interest expense will be roughly $150 million, excluding debt refinancing and other costs. The effective tax rate is now expected to be closer to 28%, due primarily to the geography of earnings.
