Segment Results and Outlook
FMC Minerals
Second-quarter segment revenue for FMC Minerals was $249.6 million, an increase of 2 percent from the prior-year quarter. Second-quarter segment earnings of $42.8 million were up 21 percent versus the prior-year quarter. Second-quarter revenue in Alkali Chemicals was flat compared to the prior-year quarter as higher pricing was offset by lower sales volume, driven by shipment timing, and lower freight costs due to a different geographic sales mix. 
 
Higher energy costs were offset by continued progress in manufacturing cost improvements. Export soda ash pricing increased in the second quarter compared to the first quarter of this year. Lithium continued to benefit from higher production rates versus 2013 resulting in higher sales and improved profitability.
 
Full-year segment earnings in 2014 are expected to be high-teens percent higher than the previous year, primarily driven by improved Lithium operations, soda ash volume increases and more favorable soda ash pricing versus 2013. For Alkali Chemicals, the company has assumed pricing to remain stable for the remainder of the year, and expects the next long-wall move to take place in the fourth quarter.
