Ferro Reports 2012 Third-Quarter Results

Ferro Corporation (NYSE: FOE, the “Company”) today announced net sales of $415 million for the three-month period ended September 30, 2012, compared with net sales of $546 million in the third quarter of 2011. The Company recorded a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $316 million, or $3.66 per diluted share, in the 2012 third quarter, compared with net income attributable to common shareholders of $19.3 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, in the prior-year quarter. The adjusted net loss attributable to common shareholders, excluding special charges, was $1.9 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared with net income attributable to common shareholders of $20.9 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2011.

Restructuring and impairment charges of $199 million were recorded during the third quarter. The charges included a $147 million impairment of goodwill associated with the Electronic Materials segment and a $41 million impairment of certain property, plant and equipment primarily related to a reduced outlook in the Company’s solar pastes business in the Electronic Materials segment. An impairment charge of $11 million was also recorded to reduce the value of properties and buildings related to manufacturing sites that were closed as part of restructuring initiatives executed in prior years. In addition, special charges of $5.8 million were included in cost of goods sold primarily related to write-downs of solar pastes inventories and residual costs at closed manufacturing sites involved in earlier restructuring initiatives. Special charges of $3.2 million were included in selling, general and administrative expenses primarily related to an increased reserve for other tax assets and residual expenses at sites closed as part of earlier restructuring initiatives. In addition, third-quarter results were impacted by an increased reserve on deferred tax assets that increased income tax expense by approximately $112 million. A reconciliation of reported to adjusted results excluding special charges is available in the supplementary financial data included in this press release.
