Luxfer Holdings PLC reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported revenue of $123.4 million against $116.0 million a year ago. Operating profit was $8.2 million against $13.2 million a year ago. Profit on operations before taxation was $12.2 million against $10.5 million a year ago. Net income for the period was $11.8 million against $8.8 million a year ago.

Adjusted EBITDA was $15.8 million against $19.8 million a year ago. The fall was mainly in relation to reduced profits in the Gas Cylinders Division. Adjusted earnings were $8.6 million against $11.1 million a year ago. Adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.32 against $0.40 a year ago. Unadjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.43 against $0.31 a year ago. For the full year, the company reported revenue of $489.5 million against $481.3 million a year ago. Operating profit was $44.8 million against $56.5 million a year ago. Profit on operations before taxation was $36.3 million against $46.7 million a year ago. Net income for the period was $29.2 million against $34.1 million a year ago. Net income attributable to equity shareholders was $29.2 million against $34.1 million a year ago. Adjusted net income was $39.8 million against $30.9 million a year ago. Net cash flows from continuing operating activities was $23.0 million against $37.1 million a year ago. Purchases of property, plant and equipment was $20.4 million against $24.2 million a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA was $64.8 million against $76.6 million a year ago. The fall was all a result of the weaker profit performance in the Gas Cylinders Division, with Elektron Division adjusted EBITDA slightly ahead of 2013. Adjusted earnings were $30.9 million against $39.8 million a year ago. Adjusted diluted earnings per share were $1.11 against $1.42 a year ago. Unadjusted diluted earnings per share were $1.05 against $1.22 a year ago. As on December 31, 2014, net debt was $106.8 million from $35.4 million as at December 31, 2013. Net debt was up mainly due to funding the acquisitions through debt. The company provided earnings guidance for the first quarter and full year 2015. The company plan to improve cash flow generation in 2015 by reducing inventories across the Group, continuing the progress made in the latter part of 2014. Consequently, the company trimmed capital investment plans, and the company now expects 2015 expenditure to be in the range of $21 million to $24 million. Based on improvements achieved in 2014 and the company anticipates mix of profits across the globe, the company expects effective tax rate to be approximately 27% in 2015. Because of the lag on cost-saving initiatives in Gas Cylinders and weather-related production disruptions at several Elektron facilities, the company expects first quarter of 2015 to be the weakest quarter in 2015.
