Kronos Worldwide, Inc. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2014

Kronos Worldwide, Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014. The company reported net income for the first quarter of 2015 of $18.4 million, or $0.16 per basic and diluted share, compared to $14.3 million, or $0.12 per basic and diluted, in the first quarter of 2014.

Net sales of $365.1 million in the first quarter of 2015 were $55 million, or 13% lower than in the first quarter of 2014 primarily due to lower average TiO2 selling prices, partially offset by higher sales volumes. Income from operations was $26 million compared to $32.2 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was $27.8 million compared to $22.2 million a year ago.
