Calgon Carbon Announces Third Quarter Results

Selling, administrative and research expenses for the third quarter of 2012 were $25.8 million, as compared to $24.0 million for the third quarter of 2011. The increase included a $1.7 million pension charge and $1.7 million related to an agreement reached with the company’s former chief executive officer in July 2012.

Calgon Carbon’s board of directors did not declare a quarterly dividend.

Net sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 were $420.5 million, a 4.3% increase over the comparable period of 2011. For the nine months ended 2012, currency translation had a $6.5 million negative effect on sales due to the stronger dollar.

Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, was $14.2 million versus $34.3 million for the comparable period of 2011.

Fully diluted net income per common share for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, was $0.25 as compared to $0.60 for the comparable period of 2011.

Commenting on the results, Randy Dearth, Calgon Carbon’s president and chief executive officer, said, “The results for the quarter clearly confirm the need to reduce Calgon Carbon’s cost structure and improve operating efficiencies. We are implementing additional initiatives to address those issues, and that will be our primary focus for the remainder of the year.”

Calgon Carbon Corporation, headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is a global leader in services and solutions for making water and air safer and cleaner.
