LP Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results

Louisiana-Pacific Corporation (LP) (NYSE: LPX) reported today results for the second quarter of 2013, which included the following:

  • Total sales for the second quarter of $573 million were higher by 34 percent compared to the year ago quarter.
  • Income from continuing operations was $94 million ($0.65 per diluted share).
  • Non-GAAP adjusted income from continuing operations was $59 million ($0.41 per diluted share).
