Glatfelter Q2 net income skyrockets 477% to $4.7mn
Jul '14
Glatfelter reported second quarter 2014 net income of $4.7 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, and adjusted earnings of $3.8 million, or $0.09 per diluted share. For the second quarter of 2013, net income was $0.9 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, and adjusted earnings were $5.1 million or $0.12 per diluted share. 
Consolidated net sales totaled $445.3 million in the second quarter of 2014, a 4.5 percent increase compared with $426.0 million in the second quarter of 2013 primarily driven by the Dresden acquisition and foreign currency translation. 
“Our second quarter results reflect the continued progress of our growth businesses as Composite Fibers and Advanced Airlaid Materials reported operating income increases of 5 percent and 17 percent, respectively,” said Dante C. Parrini, chairman and chief executive officer. “Specialty Papers’ revenue increased slightly reflecting the realization of announced price increases and we successfully completed the expanded annual maintenance outages in May and June in-line with expectations.” 
Mr. Parrini continued, “As we move into the second half of the year, we look forward to sustaining improved operating performance in Specialty Papers and returning earnings to a more normalized level. In our Advanced Airlaid Materials business, demand has been strong all year and we expect it to continue. In Composite Fibers, certain product segments are experiencing challenging market conditions.
"However, the steps we have taken to improve productivity and reduce costs are expected to allow us to continue generating solid profitability. While pockets of market uncertainty exist, I believe our leadership positions in key growth markets and focus on operating execution and cost control will lead to improved operating results throughout the balance of the year.”
