Viskase Companies Inc. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 30, 2013

Viskase Companies Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2013. For the quarter, the company reported net sales of $92,993,000 against $85,978,000 a year ago. Operating loss was $11,796,000 against operating income of $8,846,000 a year ago. Loss before income taxes was $18,435,000 against income before income taxes of $2,679,000 a year ago. Net loss was $16,266,000 against net income of $2,015,000 a year ago. Net sales increased by $2,400,000 due to price and product mix and $5,500,000 due to volume, partially offset by a decrease of $900,000 due to foreign currency translation. The decrease in operating loss was a direct result of the tax amnesty settlement charge taken in the second quarter of 2013.

Operational EBITDA, excluding pension expenses, one time charges and restructure costs, for the second quarter 2013 increased 21.6 %, or $3,100,000, from the second quarter 2012. The increase in the operational EBITDA resulted primarily from the increase in volume and improved plant efficiencies.

Net sales increased $10,600,000 due to volume and $3,300,000 due to price and product mix, partially offset by a decrease of $1.8 million due to foreign currency translation. The decrease in operating loss was a direct result of the tax amnesty settlement charge taken in the second quarter of 2013. Operating income without the charge would have been $21,400,000 or an increase of $5,600,000 compared to the first six months of 2012.
