OMNOVA Solutions Inc. announced income from continuing operations of $1.2 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter ended November 30, 2012.  Net income for the fourth quarter was $0.7 million, or $0.01 per diluted share. 

Adjusted Income from Continuing Operations for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $3.2 million or $0.07 per diluted share, as compared to $5.9 million, or $0.13 per diluted share last year. 

Results in the quarter were negatively impacted by LIFO expense of $1.8 million (net of tax), or $0.04 per diluted share, primarily related to the inventory build for the transition of coated fabrics manufacturing to other, more efficient OMNOVA plants due to the wind-down of manufacturing operations in Columbus, Mississippi.
