Kronos Worldwide, Inc. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 30, 2015

Kronos Worldwide, Inc. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015. The company reported a net loss of $159.8 million, or $1.38 per basic and diluted share, in the second quarter of 2015 compared to net income of $33.1 million, or $0.29 per basic and diluted share, in the second quarter of 2014. Net sales of $360.2 million in the second quarter of 2015 were $83.3 million, or 19%, lower than in the second quarter of 2014. Income from operations was $44.3 million compared to loss from operations of $10.4 million a year ago.

For the first six months of 2015, the company reported a net loss of $141.4 million, or $1.22 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $47.4 million, or $0.41 per basic and diluted share in the first six months of 2014. The company reported a net loss in the 2015 periods due primarily to the recognition of a non-cash deferred income tax asset valuation allowance related to German and Belgian operations and a charge associated with the implementation of certain workforce reductions, both of which were recognized in the second quarter of 2015. Net sales of $725.3 million in the first six months of 2015 were $138.3 million, or 16%, lower than in the first six months of 2014. Net sales decreased in 2015 primarily due to lower average TiO selling prices, partially offset by higher sales volumes. Income from operations was $70.3 million compared to $21.8 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was $62.1 million compared to $13.1 million a year ago.
