Stepan Company Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for 2015; Declares Dividend for the First Quarter Ended March 31, Payable on June 12, 2015

Stepan Company reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, net sales were $460.451 million against $477.442 million a year ago. Operating income was $35.178 million against $22.523 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was $30.536 million against $18.089 million a year ago. Net income attributable to the company was $21.270 million or $0.93 per diluted share against $13.018 million or $0.57 per diluted share a year ago. Adjusted net income was $20.432 million or $0.90 per diluted share against $12.767 million or $0.56 per diluted share a year ago. Capital spending was $28.3 million for the quarter versus $20.5 million in the prior year quarter. The decrease in quarterly Net Sales were primarily due to the negative impact of foreign currency translations due to the strengthening of the U.S. dollar. This decrease was partially offset by volume growth in both the Surfactant and Polymer segments. In 2015, the company expects continued profit gains from improved operations, increased geographic presence particularly in the functional markets for Surfactants and higher rigid polyol volumes for the insulation market. The company continue to expect effective tax rate to be between 20% to 28% and 32% for all of 2015. The Board of Directors of Stepan Company declared a quarterly cash dividend on its common stock of $0.18 per share.
