Feb '14
Owens Corning reported consolidated net sales of $5.3 billion in 2013, up from net sales of $5.2 billion in 2012.
Full-year 2013 adjusted earnings were $221 million, or $1.86 per diluted share compared to adjusted earnings of $131 million, or $1.10 per diluted share, in 2012. Net earnings in 2013 were $204 million, or $1.71 per share, compared to net loss of $19 million, or $0.16 per diluted share last year.
Fourth-quarter 2013 adjusted earnings were $52 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, compared with $13 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, during the same period one year ago.  The company reported net earnings of $82 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared with a net loss of $56 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, in 2012. 
"In 2013, our insulation business returned to profitability. This was an important achievement for our company," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Mike Thaman. "We are pleased to establish a quarterly dividend as an additional mechanism to return value to our shareholders.
"All three businesses improved in 2013, benefitting from a stable and growing global economy and a recovering U.S. housing market," Thaman added.  "We expect similar growth in 2014 and we are working to maintain the momentum we established last year."
The decision to declare a dividend conveys the confidence of the Board of Directors in the company's long-term financial outlook and cash flow generation. 
The company will make an initial quarterly payment of 16 cents per common share on April 3, 2014, to shareholders of record as of March 14, 2014.

Adjusted earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) in the fourth quarter of 2013 were $96 million, compared with $52 million in 2012.  EBIT for the fourth quarter was $104 million, compared with $16 million during the same period in 2012.
