Koppers Holdings Inc. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 30, 2015; Reaffirms Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

Koppers Holdings Inc. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015. For the quarter, net sales were $431.6 million against $356.8 million a year ago. The increase was driven by $117.1 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 translation due to the stronger U.S. dollar. Operating profit was $26.0 million against $13.3 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was $13.3 million against $6.4 million a year ago. Income from continuing operations was $7.9 million against $0.8 million a year ago. Net income attributable to the company was $9.0 million or $0.44 per diluted share against $1.6 million or $0.08 per diluted share a year ago. Adjusted net income was $14.0 million or $0.68 per share against $8.1 million or $0.39 per share a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA with non-controlling interests was $46.0 million compared to $27.3 million a year ago. For the six months, net sales were $829.4 million against $688.2 million a year ago. Operating profit was $34.0 million against $13.8 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was $8.5 million against $0.3 million a year ago. Income from continuing operations was $3.7 million against $0.7 million a year ago. Net income attributable to the company was $5.6 million or $0.27 per diluted share against $3.8 million or $0.19 per diluted share a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $78.1 million against net cash used in operating activities of $8.7 million a year ago. Capital expenditures was $17.3 million against $35.6 million a year ago. Adjusted net income was $14.6 million or $0.71 per share against $14.7 million or $0.71 per share a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA with non-controlling interests was $72.9 million compared to $52.7 million a year ago. This large positive increase in cash provided by operations was due mainly to the continued focus on the working capital plan and increase in accounts payable as well as the $30 million cash payment from Nippon that Leroy mentioned earlier, which was received on the last day of the quarter. Capital expenditures were unusually high last year due to construction expenses for the new joint venture in China. The company reaffirmed its earnings guidance for the year 2015. For the year, the company expects sales of $1.7 billion, adjusted EBITDA in the range of $165 to $175 million, and adjusted earnings per share between $1.60 and $1.90. The company's normalized tax rate for the year is estimated to between -- to be between 30% and 35% as it continue to realize the benefits of the tax restructuring project that became effective at the beginning of this year. Excluding discrete items, effective tax rate on pretax ordinary income was approximately 30%.
