    DENTSPLY Q2 Earnings Beat, Sales Lag; Outlook Raised - Analyst Blog

    Zacks
    By Zacks Equity Research
    July 30, 2015 1:10 PM

    DENTSPLY International Inc. XRAY reported adjusted earnings of 73 cents per share (EPS) in the second quarter of 2015, beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 68 cents and up 5.8% on a year-over-year basis.

    On a reported basis, including one-time items, quarterly earnings came in at 31 cents, down from 62 cents earned in the year-ago quarter.


    Quarter Details

    Net sales declined 8.8% on a year-over-year basis to $698 million and fell reasonably short of the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $719 million. Excluding precious metals content, sales decreased 7.7% from the year-ago quarter to $674.7 million. DENTSPLY’s top line continues to suffer due to foreign currency headwinds, which had an unfavorable effect of nearly 11% in the reported quarter.

    Gross margin expanded 180 basis points (bps) year over year to 57.3% on the back of a 12.4% decline in cost of products sold.

    Selling, general & administrative expenses (SG&A), as a percentage of net sales, increased 70 bps to 39.4%.

    Operating margin – excluding one-time items – expanded 180 bps year over year to 21.1% owing to a higher gross margin base.

    Financial Details

    DENTSPLY had cash and cash equivalents of $96.5 million as of Jun 30, 2015, lower than $100.6 million as of Mar 31, 2015. Total long-term debt stood at approximately $1.08 billion as of June 30, 2015, unchanged from the preceding quarter.

    NEW YORK, Aug. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- TheStreet, Inc. (TST), a leading digital financial media company, today reported financial results for the second quarter 2015. The Company reported revenue of $17.1 million, net loss of ($671) thousand and Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $1.1 million.

Subscription Services revenue in the second quarter was $14.0 million, an increase of 21% compared to the prior year period primarily due to revenue from BoardEx which was acquired on October 31, 2014.

We are however very pleased with our progress in executing on our strategic plan, focusing on growth opportunities in business-to-business subscription revenues," said Elisabeth DeMarse, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer.

    "As we continue to transform TheStreet, Inc., following our successful acquisition of BoardEx, we remain committed to look for new market opportunities that expand our revenue as well as customer base," concluded DeMarse.

    Operating expenses for second quarter were $17.5 million, an increase of 14% compared to the prior year period primarily due to including BoardEx specific operating expenses.

    Schnitzer Steel Industries, Inc.
    June 30, 2015 8:30 AM

    PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

    Schnitzer Steel Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: SCHN) today reported financial results for its fiscal 2015 third quarter ended May 31, 2015.

    Our third quarter results reflected benefits from the cost reduction and productivity initiatives we announced in early April which led to improved sequential operating performance in all of our businesses. In Metals Recycling, ferrous volumes increased 29% and nonferrous sales volumes increased 21% versus the second quarter. Due to the rapid decline in ferrous selling prices in February, which impacted shipments in the third quarter, average inventory costs did not decline as quickly as selling prices, which led to an estimated $14 per ton, or $13 million, adverse impact of average inventory accounting which approximated the adverse impact in the second quarter. In our Auto Parts Business, higher seasonal retail activity and early benefits achieved from productivity improvements led to significantly improved profitability. Our Steel Manufacturing Business generated higher sales volumes and increased operating income due to steadily improving demand in West Coast construction markets.

    Consolidated Financial Performance

    The Company announced break-even adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations for the third quarter, which compares to second quarter adjusted loss per share of $0.30 and prior year third quarter adjusted earnings per share of $0.19. Adjustments included charges for restructuring and exit-related costs and asset impairments. Third quarter adjusted results included an adverse impact from average inventory accounting of approximately $0.40 per share
