Koppers Holdings Inc. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Reaffirms Earnings Guidance for 2015; Approves the Amendment to its Articles

Koppers Holdings Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported net sales of $397.8 million against $331.4 million a year ago. Operating profit was $8.0 million against $0.5 million a year ago. Loss before income taxes was $4.8 million against $6.1 million a year ago. Net loss attributable to the company was $3.4 million or $0.16 basic and diluted per share against net income attributable to the company of $2.2 million or $0.11 basic and diluted per share a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $19.7 million against net cash used in operating activities of $13.7 million a year ago. Capital expenditures were $7.0 million against $14.8 million a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA was $26.9 million against $25.4 million a year ago. Adjusted net income was $0.6 million or $0.03 per share against $6.6 million or $0.32 per share a year ago. The increase in sales was driven by approximately $95.0 million in sales from the Osmose acquisition and a record sales quarter for Railroad and Utility Products and Services (RUPS). These increases were partially offset by lower sales for Carbon Materials and Chemicals (CMC) and the negative impact from foreign currency. CapEx expenditures was high due to the construction expenditures for the KJCC joint venture in China in early 2014. The company reaffirmed earnings guidance for the year 2015. The company provides for sales of approximately $1.7 billion, adjusted EBITDA in the range of $165 million to $175 million, and adjusted EPS in the range of $1.60 to $1.90. The company announced that effective tax rate was 12% and normalized tax rate for the year is estimated to be around 35%. The company approved the amendment to the articles to increase authorized common stock in the annual meeting of shareholders held on May 7, 2015.
