U.S. Silica Holdings, Inc. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2015 ; Provides Capital Expenditure Guidance for the Year 2015

U.S. Silica Holdings, Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for second quarter ended June 30, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported sales of $147,511,000, operating income of $10,041,000, income before income taxes of $3,611,000, net income of $9,953,000 or $0.18 per diluted share, adjusted EBITDA of $23,443,000 compared to the sales of $205,801,000, operating income of $43,776,000, income before income taxes of $39,984,000, net income of $28,654,000 or $0.53 per diluted share, adjusted EBITDA of $59,785,000 for the same quarter a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities during the quarter totaled $18.7 million, which exceeded capital expenditures of $13.8 million in the second quarter of 2015. The bulk of second quarter CapEx spend was largely associated with the company's investment in a new frac sand mine and plant located near Fairchild, Wisconsin, and various other growth, cost savings and maintenance capital projects. Due to the current lack of visibility in its Oil and Gas business, the Company will continue to refrain from providing guidance for Adjusted EBITDA until such time when it can gain more clarity around its customers' business activity levels and the associated demand for its products. Based on current market conditions, the Company anticipates that its capital expenditures for 2015 will be in a range of $60 million to $70 million.
