For the quarter, the company reported net sales of $1,241.6 million against $1,297.1 million a year ago. Operating income was $115.8 million against $90.3 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was $100.3 million against $80.5 million a year ago. Net income was $65.8 million against $53.1 million a year ago. Diluted earnings per share were $0.65 against $0.51 a year ago. Diluted earnings per share, as adjusted were $0.61 against $0.54 a year ago. Capital expenditures were about $34 million. Cash flow from operating activities totaled $57.9 million. This reflects the cash payments associated with the closure of the Pressure Sensitive Materials plant in Stow, Ohio and generally higher working capital levels in the second quarter. For the six months, the company reported net sales of $2,479.4 million against $2,552.1 million a year ago. Operating income was $195.0 million against $182.4 million a year ago.

Additions to property and equipment were $69.3 million against $54.5 million a year ago. The company expected adjusted diluted earnings per share for the third quarter of 2014 to be in the range of $0.65 to $0.70 reflecting continued improvement in operating performance and sales mix. The company raised the lower end of total year 2014 earnings guidance from the range of $2.40 to $2.55 per share to the range of $2.45 to $2.55 per share. This includes an anticipated effective income tax rate for 2014 of approximately 34.5%. Management expects cash flow from operations for 2014 to be approximately $450 million. This revised expectation reflects cash expenses associated with the May 2014 closure of a manufacturing plant in Stow, Ohio and tax payments related to the gain on the sale of the Paper Packaging division. The company expects capital expenditures to be approximately $175 million. This year's increased capital spending reflects investments to meet the growing liquid market needs, to enhance its health care packaging capabilities and to expand the company’s sealant and protective film extrusion platform.
