NewMarket Corporation (NYSE:NEU) President and Chief Executive Officer, Thomas E. Gottwald, released the following earnings report of the Company’s operations for the fourth quarter and full year 2013.

We are very pleased to report that we recorded record fourth quarter net income of $54.0 million and earnings per share of $4.08. These results reflect record operating performance by our Petroleum additives segment. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $53.1 million and earnings per share were $3.94. We also had solid operating performance for the full year. Net income for 2013 increased to $264.7 million, or $19.90 per share, compared to net income of $239.6 million, or $17.85 per share for the year 2012.

In 2013, we sold the assets of our Foundry Park I real estate development segment and recorded the gain in discontinued operations. As a result of the sale, we reclassified the results of operations of the segment in current and prior year periods to discontinued operations. The effects on net income of these and certain other special items are presented in the Summary of Earnings table below.
