Showa Denko Announces Consolidated Earnings Results for Six Months Ended June 30, 2014; Revises Earnings Guidance for the Full Year Ending December 31, 2014; Provides End of Term Dividend Guidance for the Year 2014

Showa Denko announced consolidated earnings results for the six months ended June 30, 2014. For the period, the company reported net sales of JPY 413,606 million, operating income of JPY 10,542 million, ordinary income of JPY 7,210 million and net loss of JPY 3,433 million or JPY 2.29 per share compared to net sales of JPY 401,409 million, operating income of JPY 6,723 million, ordinary income of JPY 5,387 million and net income of JPY 2,158 million or JPY 2.29 per share a year ago. Net sales increased due mainly to higher-than-expected sales in the Petrochemicals segment, in which selling prices increased following the rise in naphtha prices. Operating income increased from the earlier forecast due to the improvement in the HD media business (Electronics segment) and steady demand for olefins (Petrochemicals segment), notwithstanding less-than-expected operating income in the Chemicals and Aluminum segments due mainly to the influence of higher raw material costs. Ordinary income increased, reflecting higher operating income. However, the net income figure fell below the earlier forecast, reflecting the recording of loss on valuation of investment securities and the increase in tax expenses. Income before income taxes and minority interests was JPY 2,524 million compared to JPY 4,099 million a year ago. Net cash from operating activities was JPY 11,298 million, compared to JPY 17,076 million for the last year. Purchase of property, plant and equipment was JPY 26,365 million, compared to JPY 22,523 million for the last year. Free cash flow was negative JPY 19.3 billion, with a decrease of JPY 9 billion year-on-year. Capex increased JPY 5.1 billion, due to the shutdown maintenance of every 4 years in Petrochemicals. The company revised earnings forecast for the full year ending December 31, 2014. The company now expects net sales of JPY 895,000 million, operating income of JPY 32,000 million, ordinary income of JPY 26,000 million, net income of JPY 7,000 million or JPY 4.68 per share compared to net sales of JPY 890,000 million, operating income of JPY 32,000 million, ordinary income of JPY 25,000 million, net income of JPY 12,000 million or JPY 8.02 per share previously estimated. As for the full-year performance forecast, net sales will increase slightly due mainly to higher sales in the Petrochemicals segment recorded in the first half of the year. Although operating income in the first half was actually higher than the earlier forecast, the company will maintain the operating income forecast for full year at the initial level. This is mainly because operating income from the Aluminum segment in the second half of the year is expected to fall below the initial forecast due to the influence of the soaring aluminum metal price. Ordinary income is expected to increase slightly. Nevertheless, in the second half of the year, the company will not be able to fully offset the fall in net income recorded in the first half. As a result, the company has revised downward net income forecast for the full year. Capex is revised up from the initial forecast by JPY 5.7 billion, due to the phasing of capacity expansion booking. It includes expenses of facilities for a aluminum laminated film and high purity aluminum foil for capacitors. Depreciation will be slightly down from the initial forecast, JPY 40.4 billion. The company expects end of term dividend per share of JPY 3.00, compared to JPY 3.00 for the last year.
