U.S. Silica Holdings, Inc. Provides Earnings Guidance for the Full Year of 2014

U.S. Silica Holdings, Inc. provided earnings guidance for the full year of 2014. The company announced that it is increasing its guidance for full year 2014, adjusted EBITDA from a range of $215 million to $225 million to a range of $230 million to $240 million, based on the strength of the markets for both of its operating segments. Additionally, the company is reiterating its full year 2014 guidance for capital expenditures in the range of $95 million to $105 million and an effective tax rate of approximately 27%.

U.S. Silica Announces Two New Oil and Gas Capacity Expansions

U.S. Silica Holdings, Inc. announced plans to add approximately 3.8 million tons of new capacity in response to the surging demand for northern white frac sand. The Company is planning an 800,000 ton-per-year expansion at its Pacific, MO. plant. The decision to expand the Pacific plant was driven primarily by the oil and gas market's increased use of fine grade products. The $33 million project also includes a new transload to support the additional volume. The Pacific plant has exceptional logistics, with access to both the Union Pacific and BNSF railroads as well as barge. It is also closer to the Eagle Ford and Permian shale basins, which results in lower freight costs. The project is expected to come online in the third quarter of 2015. Additionally, the Company has begun development of a new 3 million ton-per-year frac sand mine and plant in Wisconsin and associated in-basin transloads. The project will require a capital investment of approximately $150 million. The facility will be located on a highly-desirable Class 1 railroad and is expected to come online by the middle of 2016.
