Houston Wire & Cable Reports Earnings Results for the Second Quarter of 2015; Reports Impairment Charges for the Second Quarter of 2015

Houston Wire & Cable reported earnings results for the Second Quarter of 2015. For the quarter, the company's operations generate $12.2 million in cash. Total debt has now fallen by $13.5 million or 25%, since the $53.8 million level at December 31, 2014. Year-over-year sales decline of approximately 25% resulted from a combination of reduced demand in oil and gas and industrial markets, deflation in the price of metals and the decline in purchases on the company's large and ongoing infrastructure project. For the second quarter of 2015, the company reported impairment charge of $3 million.
