First Quarter 2014 Highlights

-Severe winter weather negatively impacted customer demand and resulted in over $1.5 million of unanticipated expenses in the quarter, primarily for energy, logistics and maintenance.
 
-Gross profit was $49.1 million with margins increasing to 21.7% in the first quarter of 2014 as compared to $49.0 million, or 19.5%, a year ago. The margin improvement was due to favorable product mix.
 
-The Company's segment operating profit was $15.5 million in the first quarter of 2014, compared to $15.0 million for the first quarter of 2013.
 
"Our financial results in the first quarter of 2014 improved as compared to last year, driven by significantly higher earnings in Engineered Surfaces, improved results in several specialty chemical product lines and lower interest expense.  Better results were achieved despite extreme winter weather disruptions which negatively affected customer demand and also resulted in over $1.5 million of higher operating costs during the quarter for energy, raw materials, transportation and maintenance," said Kevin McMullen, OMNOVA Solutions' Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
