Calgon Carbon's CEO Discusses Q2 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Statements looking forward in time including statements regarding future growth and profitability, price increases, cost saving, broader product lines, enhanced competitive posture and acquisitions are included in the company's most recent annual report pursuant to the Safe Harbor provision of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. They involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties that may cause the company’s actual results in future periods to be materially different from any future performance suggested in the presentation or during the Q&A.

Further, the company operates in an industry sector where securities values may be volatile and may be influenced by economic and other factors beyond the company’s control. Some of the factors that could affect future performance are high energy and raw material costs, costs of imports and related tariffs, labor relations, availability of capital and environmental requirements as they relate both to the operation and to our customers.

In the context of the forward-looking information provided in this webcast, please refer to the discussions of risk factors and other information detailed in, as well as the other information contained in the company’s most recent Annual Report and 10-K. Steve?

Thanks Gail. Good morning everyone. Total sales for the second quarter of 2012 were $148.4 million versus $135.3 million in the second quarter of 2011, an increase of $13.1 million or 9.7%. Sales in each of our three segments increased in the second quarter of 2012 as compared to 2011. Currency translation had a negative impact of $3 million on sales for the second quarter of 2012 due to the stronger dollar.

Regarding our segments. Sales in the Activated Carbon and Service segment increased $4.8 million or 4% for the second quarter of 2012 compared to 2011's second quarter. Contributing to this quarter over quarter increase was a higher demand in the potable water market and the higher pricing the metals recovery market.
