The Sherwin-Williams Company Announces Unaudited Consolidated Financial Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Second Quarter and Full Year of 2014

The Sherwin-Williams Company announced unaudited consolidated financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014. Diluted net income per common share in the quarter increased to $1.14 per share from $1.11 per share in 2013, including a $0.12 per share loss from acquisitions. The increase in first quarter diluted net income per common share was due primarily to improved operating results of the Paint Stores and Global Finishes Groups. Net sales were $2,366,556,000, compared to $2,167,168,000 for the last year. Income before income taxes was $166,077,000, compared to $168,384,000 for the last year. Net income was $115,457,000, compared to $116,185,000 for the last year. The company spent $29.4 million on capital expenditure. Operating cash in the quarter was improved by approximately $8 million, compared to its first quarter cash performance last year. For the second quarter, the company anticipates consolidated net sales will increase 8 to 14% compared to last year's second quarter. At that anticipated sales level, the company estimates diluted net income per common share in the second quarter of 2014 to be in the range of $2.80 to $3.00 per share compared to $2.46 per share earned in the second quarter of 2013. This guidance includes expectation that the Comex acquisition will increase net sales $125 million to $135 million and reduce diluted net income per common share by approximately $0.10 per share in the second quarter. For the full year 2014, the company expects consolidated net sales to increase 8 to 13% compared to full year 2013. With annual sales at that level, the company is reaffirming its guidance that diluted net income per common share for 2014 is expected to be in the range of $8.12 to $8.32 per share compared to $7.26 per share earned in 2013. This annual guidance includes expectation that the Comex acquisition will increase net sales by a low single digit percentage in the year and negatively impact diluted net income per common share $0.45 to $0.55 per share in 2014. For the year, the company expects its effective tax rate will be in the low-30% range, compared to last year's rate of 30.7%.
