Quaker Chemical Corporation Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2014

Quaker Chemical Corporation reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014. Net sales for the first quarter of 2014 of $181.7 million increased approximately 3% from net sales of $176.2 million for the first quarter of 2013, including a decrease of approximately $2.7 million, or 2%, due to foreign exchange rate translation. The increase in net sales from the first quarter of 2013 was primarily driven by 6% higher product volumes, including increases across most regions. Foreign exchange rate translation negatively impacted net sales by 2%. Operating income increased 11% to $19.4 million in the first quarter of 2014 from $17.4 million in the first quarter of 2013. Similarly, the company's adjusted EBITDA increased 11% to $23.7 million in the first quarter of 2014 from $21.4 million in the first quarter of 2013. The company's earnings per diluted share for the first quarter of 2014 were $0.96 compared to $1.04 for the first quarter of 2013 and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share for the first quarter of 2014 were $0.95 compared to $0.96 for the first quarter of 2013. Despite strong operating results, the company's higher effective tax rate was the primary reason its earnings were down compared to the first quarter of 2013. The company had net cash used in operating activities of $1.8 million for the first quarter of 2014 against net cash provided by operating activities of $11.306 million a year ago. The net cash outflow relates to an increase in cash invested in the company's working capital during the current quarter, which was primarily the result of increased sales at the end of the first quarter of 2014, reestablishing inventory safety stock levels that were low at year end 2013 and higher annual incentive compensation payouts related to an improvement in the company's prior year performance. Net income attributable to the company was $12.730 million against $13.619 million a year ago. Income before taxes and equity in net income of associated companies was $18.828 million against $17.182 million a year ago. Investments in property, plant and equipment was $3.057 million against $2.723 million a year ago. Overall, the company continue to remain confident in future and expect 2014 to be another good year for the company as the company strive to increase revenue and earnings for the fifth consecutive year.
