Second quarter 2017:

  • Net sales increased 1.1% and Net Sales, Constant Currency* increased 4.7% primarily due to growth in cement additives and sales associated with our acquisitions of Halex and Stirling Lloyd
  • Gross margin of 40.1% decreased 160 basis points due to increases in raw material costs and an inventory fair value adjustment relating to the acquisition of Stirling Lloyd, partially offset by higher pricing
  • Adjusted EBIT* of $42.0 million declined 5.2% due to higher operating expenses and lower Adjusted Gross Profit
  • Net income from continuing operations was $1.3 million compared to $18.6 million in the prior year period. The decrease was primarily due to increased restructuring expenses, acquisition-related costs and lower gross profit.
