Ferro Reports 2011 Fourth-Quarter And Full-Year Results

Adjusted earnings per share are expected to be in the range of $0.40 to $0.65 per diluted share in 2012. The expected reduction of 2012 adjusted earnings compared with the prior-year adjusted earnings is driven by lower income expectations in the Electronic Materials segment. The size of the range is driven primarily by uncertainties related to demand for electronic materials products.

While the Company expects lower segment income from the Electronic Materials segment, total income from all other segments is expected to grow by 10 to 15 percent in 2012.

Non-GAAP Measures

Adjusted earnings per share is equal to income (loss) before taxes, plus restructuring and impairment charges, charges related to debt refinancing and other special charges, adjusted for a normalized tax rate that is consistent with the Company’s expected future effective tax rate excluding discrete items, and divided by the average number of common shares outstanding. The Company’s expected future effective tax rate is lower than the U.S. statutory rate because of expected earnings in foreign jurisdictions with lower tax rates. We believe this data provides investors with additional useful information on the underlying operations of the business and enables period-to-period comparability of financial performance.
