Ferro Corporation Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Revises Earnings Guidance for Fiscal 2015

Ferro Corporation reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. First quarter income from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders was $0.17 per diluted share compared with $0.12 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2014. On an adjusted basis, earnings per diluted share were $0.23 compared with earnings of $0.14 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2014. The results in both years include a number of charges relating to, among other items, restructuring activities, and the impact of currency devaluations in Venezuela. First quarter 2015 net sales were $263 million, while value-added sales, which exclude precious metal sales, were $253 million. In the same period last year, net sales and value-added sales were $281 million and $267 million, respectively. Income from continuing operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2015, was $13 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, compared with $10 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2014. Adjusted income attributable to common shareholders was $20 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, compared with $12 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, in the prior-year quarter. Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization were $35 million, compared with $32 million in the same period last year. Income before income taxes was $15,430,000 against $12,630,000 a year ago. Net cash used in operating activities was $10,269,000 against $22,240,000 a year ago. Capital expenditures for property, plant and equipment and other long lived assets was $14,879,000 against $12,163,000 a year ago. At March 31, 2015, net debt was $203 million, an increase of approximately $32 million since year end. The company anticipates stronger global economic growth for the remainder of 2015. Economic growth is expected to increase in the U.S. and Europe, though conditions in certain developing economies, including Indonesia, China, Russia and Ukraine, are expected to remain weak. The net impact is expected to provide a catalyst for increased sales growth over the remainder of the year relative to the 7% constant currency value-added sales growth experienced in the first quarter. The company expects full-year constant currency value-added sales growth, excluding the impact of Nubiola, in line with prior guidance of approximately 10% - 11%, offset by an unfavorable impact of currency translation estimated at 13%. The effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2015 was 16% due to the company’s ability to recognize certain tax assets previously fully reserved. For the full year, the company expects the effective tax rate to be in the range of 24% - 25%. Given these expectations, and assuming closing of the Nubiola transaction within the next 60 days, the company is increasing its adjusted earnings per share guidance to $0.89 - $0.96 compared with prior guidance of $0.85 - $0.90 per diluted share.
