Hexcel Corporation Invests USD 250 Million in New Carbon Fibre Plant in Roussillon, France

Hexcel Corporation announced on that it launched its site in Roussillon where it will invest USD 250 million to construct a carbon fibre plant. Its new carbon fibre facility will occupy a 37-acre site at the Osiris Chemicals Industry Platform in Roussillon and will be comprised of both polymerisation and carbonisation lines. Reportedly, this plant is part of Hexcel's ongoing worldwide investment to create a diversified and robust supply chain to support aerospace customers' growing demand for carbon fibre composites. Carbon fibre from the new plant will be supplied to Hexcel customers including Airbus for the A350 XWB and Safran for the CFM LEAP engine. It is expected that construction of the new plant will begin by September 2015, providing employment to 120 people when fully operational in early 2018. In addition, Hexcel announced further investments totaling USD 22 million at its existing weaving and prepreg manufacturing facilities near Lyon. These additional investments are expected to create 100 more jobs by 2018.

Adjusted net income was $56.5 million compared to $50.1 million for the same period a year ago. Adjusted diluted net income per share was $0.58 compared to $0.50 for the same period a year ago. Net cash used in operating activities was $14.6 million compared to net cash provided by operating activities $33.4 million for the same period a year ago.

EBITDA was $112.9 million compared to $100.5 million for the same period a year ago.

The company revised 2015 earnings outlook. The company expects sales of $1.86 billion to $1.94 billion. The decrease is due to the impact of the strengthening dollar on Euro and British pound denominated sales, as constant currency view of 2015 sales is unchanged. The strong operational performance combined with expected 2015 constant currency sales and an estimated four-cent benefit from the strengthening dollar for the year, leads the company to expect adjusted diluted earnings per share to be in the range of $2.33 to $2.43, previously it was $2.26 to $2.38. The company also expects free cash flow to be in the range of $10 million to $60 million, unchanged from the previous estimate.
