Ecolab Inc. Reports Earnings Results for the Second Quarter of 2015 ; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Third Quarter Ending September 2015 and Full Year of 2015

Ecolab Inc. reported earnings results for the second quarter of 2015. The company reported that second-quarter earnings were down 3% to $302 million, or $1 per share. The company posted revenue of $3.39 billion in the period. On an adjusted basis, excluding special gains and charges and discrete tax items from both years, second quarter 2015 adjusted earnings per share increased 5% to a record $1.08 despite a $0.09 headwind from currencies and pension. The adjusted earnings per share growth was driven by fixed-currency sales gains, delivered product and other cost savings, lower variable compensation, synergies, new products and the lower tax rate and share count. Operating income decreased 15% to $438 million. Excluding special gains and charges and discrete tax items, second-quarter 2015 adjusted net income attributable to Ecolab increased 3% to $324 million. Excluding special gains and charges, second-quarter adjusted operating was up 1% year over year to $514 million. For the third quarter ending in September 2015, the company expected adjusted earnings to increase 2% to 8% to the $1.24 to $1.31 range as the unfavorable currency and pension impact increases to approximately $0.11 per share in the quarter. The company expects third quarter 2015 results to show further solid fixed-currency sales growth and margin improvement from its Global Institutional, Industrial and Other segments as they more than offset lower Energy segment results and a tough comparison for Energy. The company maintained its full-year 2015 forecast for earnings per share in the range of $4.45 to $4.60, representing 6% to 10% growth as further fixed-currency sales growth, appropriate pricing, lower variable compensation, innovation and synergies more than offset 2015's challenges.
