Caterpillar Inc. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 30, 2015; Reaffirms Earnings Guidance for 2015

Caterpillar Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015.

The decrease was primarily due to lower sales volume and the unfavorable impact of currency, resulting mostly from the weakening of the euro, the Japanese yen and the Brazilian real. Price realization was slightly favorable. Operating profit for the second quarter of 2015 was $1.130 billion, a decline of $345 million from the second quarter of 2014 of $1.475 billion. The decrease was primarily the result of lower sales volume and a decline in Financial Products' operating profit, partially offset by improved price realization and the favorable impact of currency. Consolidated profit before taxes was $992 million against $1,420 million a year ago. Profit for the period was $710 million or $1.16 per diluted share against $999 million or $1.57 per diluted share a year ago.
