Adjusted EPS $ 0.66 $ 0.63

Commenting on the results, Patrick Prevost, Cabot’s President and CEO, said, “Our businesses yielded an improvement in year over year adjusted earnings per share despite the challenging macroeconomic environment. We made significant progress on several strategic initiatives during the quarter. We received royalties and another planned milestone payment from our Elastomer Composites technology licensing agreement with Michelin. It is a significant event as we have entered the next phase of our exclusive agreement for use of our technology in tire applications. The agreement and the associated royalties will extend through 2022. We also experienced a 25% increase in year over year Fumed Metal Oxides volumes through the launch of new products and the utilization of our new capacity. However, we experienced a substantially lower level of activity in our Specialty Fluids Business and a weak economic environment negatively affected our volumes and utilization levels in our Reinforcement Materials and Performance Materials Segments.”
