The plant is also expected to complement the products and technical service offered by the company's manufacturing facilities in China, the Philippines, Malaysia and Australia. The company anticipates production of hot melt and water-based adhesives products to begin in the second quarter of 2016. From this new site, HB Fuller would provide adhesive solutions to customers in the hygiene, packaging, woodworking, filter, product assembly, container labeling and other durable assembly industries.

HB Fuller Co. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for Second Quarter and Six Months Ended May 31, 2015; Revises Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

HB Fuller Co. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for second quarter and six months ended May 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported net revenue of $540,762,000, income before income taxes and income from equity method investments of $40,561,000, net income attributable to company of $24,615,000 or $0.48 per diluted share, EBITDA of $67,175,000 compared to the net revenue of $544,034,000, income before income taxes and income from equity method investments of $27,781,000, net income attributable to company of $20,537,000 or $0.40 per diluted share, EBITDA of $62,510,000 for the same quarter a year ago. Adjusted diluted earnings per share in the second quarter of 2015 were $0.631, down versus the prior year's adjusted result of $0.781. The negative impacts of a stronger US dollar and a higher core tax rate were key drivers of the year-over-year decline in adjusted diluted EPS. Net debt reduced by $34 million in the quarter. Cash flow from operations was $50 million. Capital expenditures were $11 million in the second quarter. For the year to date, the company reported net revenue of $1,011,423,000, income before income taxes and income from equity method investments of $53,834,000, net income attributable to company of $34,325,000 or $0.67 per diluted share, EBITDA of $106,275,000 compared to net revenue of $1,030,015,000, income before income taxes and income from equity method investments of $47,117,000, net income attributable to company of $35,108,000 or $0.69 per diluted share, EBITDA of $113,695,000 for the same period a year ago. Adjusted total diluted earnings per share in the first half of 2015 were $0.921, down versus the prior year's result of $1.271. Negative impacts of a stronger US dollar and a higher core tax rate were key drivers of the year-over-year decline in adjusted diluted EPS. Cash flow from operations was $116 million. Capital expenditures were $39 million The company updated its earnings guidance for the 2015 fiscal year primarily to reflect an expected increase in its core tax rate. The strong earnings performance in its Americas Adhesives and Construction Products operating segments, combined with the delay in earnings improvement in its EIMEA operating segment, is shifting the mix of its consolidated pre-tax earnings to the United States where its effective tax rate is relatively high. The company now expects its full-year core tax rate to be about 34%, up 300 basis points from its previous estimate, reducing its expected adjusted diluted earnings per share by about $0.10. The company updated guidance also anticipates higher operating margins for the full year offset by lower revenue. The company's current target for full-year adjusted EBITDA is about $275 million, largely in line with the company's original guidance, with a full-year EBITDA margin of about 13% and second half EBITDA margin above 15%. The company revised and updated adjusted earnings per diluted share estimate for fiscal year 2015 is $2.45 with revenue of $2.1 billion.
