Rockwood Holdings, Inc. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014; Reaffirms Earnings Guidance for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year of 2014

Rockwood Holdings, Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported net sales of $356.3 million against $345.8 million a year ago. Operating income was $52.4 million against $67.3 million a year ago. Income from continuing operations before taxes was $93.8 million against loss from continuing operations before taxes of $0.6 million a year ago. Income from continuing operations was $54.4 million or $0.75 per diluted share against $8.4 million or $0.11 per diluted share a year ago. Net income attributable to the company stockholders was $85.9 million or $1.19 per diluted share against $1,111.2 million or $14.64 per diluted share a year ago. Total Adjusted EBITDA was $53.9 million against $57.8 million a year ago. Sales were up versus last year primarily due to higher volumes and selling prices in most Surface Treatment markets as well as the lithium battery applications, partially offset by the lower sales of butyllithium. Adjusted net income was $45.3 million, or $0.63 per share, compared to last year's $29.9 million, or $0.39 per share. The results benefited from strong performance in surface treatment and battery applications and potash in lithium, the Talison Lithium joint venture, and lower interest expense. For the nine months, the company reported net sales of $1,073.1 million against $1,030.8 million a year ago. Operating income was $155.3 million against $166.5 million a year ago. Income from continuing operations before taxes was $174.7 million against $41.4 million a year ago.
