Eastman Chemical Company announced earnings, excluding Solutia acquisition-related costs and charges in both periods, of $1.62 per diluted share for first quarter 2013 versus $1.22 per diluted share for first quarter 2012. Reported earnings were $1.57 per diluted share in first quarter 2013 versus $1.13 per diluted share in first quarter 2012.

“Our portfolio of specialty businesses continued to deliver strong earnings in the first quarter despite uncertain global economic conditions,” said Jim Rogers, Chairman and CEO. “For full year 2013, we remain on track to achieve a fourth consecutive year of double-digit earnings growth while also generating strong cash flow.”

Sales revenue for first quarter 2013 was $2.3 billion, a 27 percent increase compared with first quarter 2012. First quarter 2013 included sales revenue from the acquired Solutia businesses. Pro forma combined sales revenue declined 1 percent.

Operating earnings in first quarter 2013 were $393 million compared with $264 million in first quarter 2012. Excluding Solutia acquisition-related costs and charges in both periods, operating earnings were $403 million in first quarter 2013 and $273 million in first quarter 2012.

First quarter 2013 included operating earnings from the acquired Solutia businesses. Pro forma combined operating earnings, excluding Solutia acquisition-related costs and charges, were $403 million in first quarter 2013 compared with $363 million in first quarter 2012. Pro forma combined operating earnings increased primarily due to lower raw material and energy costs partially offset by lower selling prices.
