Third Quarter Business Segment Overview

Advanced Engineered Materials

Advanced Engineered Materials' third quarter segment income margin decreased sequentially to 23.4 percent, on segment income of $81 million. The 100 basis point decrease in segment income margin was primarily due to the impact of turnaround activity at the company's Middle East affiliate, which resulted in approximately $15 million of lower affiliate earnings, on a sequential basis.

Operating profit, which excludes affiliate earnings, increased to $48 million from $39 million in the prior quarter demonstrating the continued success of the company's engineered materials business in penetrating the automotive space with its highly engineered polymers.

Volumes were down 2 percent in the quarter, despite lower sequential auto builds in Europe and the United States of 13 percent and 9 percent, respectively. An improved mix of higher-value medical applications, lower raw material costs and focused spending initiatives contributed to the increase in operating profit this quarter.
