wr grace & co (GRA) Key Developments

W. R. Grace & Co. Introduced ProVance Pre-Packed Columns

W. R. Grace & Co. has introduced ProVance pre-packed columns, a portfolio of products for cost-effective purification of biologic drugs, specifically monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). Monoclonal antibodies are key therapeutic agents used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, cancer and other diseases. Currently in the U.S., mAbs constitute the single large biologics product category in the clinical development pipeline. Purification of these agents is a critical step in drug development. The ProVance portfolio of disposable columns come pre-packed with a new silica resin that has a higher capacity and lower cost than the alternative technology used for mAb purification. Biopharmaceutical customers have confirmed 40% to 60% total operational cost reduction with ProVance columns by eliminating time-consuming cleaning and packing steps and achieving more efficient purification. The pre-packed disposable columns further improve biopharmaceutical productivity by lowering the risk of contamination and accelerating time to market.

W.R. Grace & Co. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Fourth Quarter and Year Ended December 31, 2013; Provides Earnings Guidance for Fiscal 2014

W.R. Grace & Co. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2013. The fourth quarter net income of $29.7 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, compared with a net loss for the prior-year quarter of $184.3 million, or $2.44 per diluted share. Both quarters included charges related to the company's asbestos-related liability and bankruptcy proceedings. Adjusted EPS for the 2013 fourth quarter was $1.09 per diluted share compared with $1.21 per diluted share for the prior-year quarter. Fourth quarter sales of $776.7 million declined 2.6% compared with the prior-year quarter as acquisition growth (+1.3%) and improved base pricing (+0.4%) were offset by lower sales volumes (-2.5%), lower rare earth surcharges (-1.7%) and unfavorable currency translation (-0.1%). Adjusted EBIT of $138.6 million decreased 3.7% compared with $143.9 million in the prior-year quarter. Income before income taxes was $15.7 million against loss before income taxes of $357.9 million a year ago. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2013, was $256.1 million, or $3.30 per diluted share, compared with $40.0 million, or $0.52 per diluted share for the prior year. Adjusted EPS for the year was $4.39 per diluted share compared with $4.53 per diluted share for the prior year. Sales for the full year ended December 31, 2013, decreased 3.0% to $3.06 billion as lower rare earth surcharges (-3.1%), lower sales volumes (-0.9%) and unfavorable currency translation (-0.8%) partially were offset by acquisition growth (+1.1%) and higher base pricing (+0.7%). Adjusted EBIT was $550.8 million, a decrease of 1.3% compared with the prior year. The decline in Adjusted EBIT largely was due to lower sales in Catalysts Technologies and unfavorable currency translation. Net cash provided by operating activities for the year ended December 31, 2013, was $515.9 million compared with $453.6 million in the prior year. The increased cash flow primarily was due to improved working capital performance and lower pension contributions. Income before income taxes was $360.6 million against loss before income taxes of $20.6 million a year ago. Capital expenditure was $156.2 million against $138.5 million a year ago. The company expects 2014 Adjusted EBIT to be in the range of $620 million to $660 million, an increase of 13 to 20 % compared with 2013 Adjusted EBIT of $550.8 million. The company expects 2014 Adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $765 million to $805 million. The following assumptions are components of Grace's 2014 outlook: Consolidated sales in the range of $3.3-$3.4 billion with organic growth of 5%-8%. A book effective tax rate of approximately 35% and a cash tax rate of approximately 10%; Adjusted Free Cash Flow greater than $400 million; and Capital expenditures in the range of $160-$180 million.
