kmg chemicals inc (KMG) Key Developments

KMG Chemicals, Inc. Updated Financial Guidance for Fiscal 2015

KMG Chemicals Inc. updated its financial guidance for fiscal 2015, to reflect the sale of its creosote distribution business. The company forecasts that fiscal 2015 consolidated net sales will be $315-$325 million compared with consolidated net sales of $353 million in fiscal 2014. The projected decline in fiscal 2015 sales reflects decreased sales in the Wood Treating Chemicals segment primarily due to the divestiture of the creosote business, partially offset by growth in the Electronic Chemicals segment. The company continues to forecast that fiscal 2015 adjusted EBITDA will be $32-35 million. Adjusted EBITDA excludes the anticipated gain on the sale of the creosote business as well as restructuring and realignment charges.

EBITDA was $8,810,000 compared to $6,204,000 a year ago. For fiscal 2015, Electronic Chemicals segment sales to increase compared to the level reported in fiscal 2014, but lower creosote sales in the Wood Treating Chemicals segment are likely to cause fiscal 2015 consolidated net sales to decline from last year.

Fiscal 2015 depreciation and amortization expense is forecast at approximately $16 million, excluding restructuring and realignment charges.
