This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210128006138/en/ Net cash provided by operating activities 0.19 1,072 5.48 Adjusted earnings per diluted share* Earnings per diluted share 1,504 6.15 FY19 *For non-core and unusual items excluded from adjusted earnings and for adjusted provision for income taxes, calculation of free cash flow, segment adjusted EBIT margins, and net debt, and reconciliations to reported company and segment earnings and to cash provided by operating activities and total borrowings for all periods presented in this release, see Tables 3A, 3B, 4, 5A, 5B, and 6. “Despite unprecedented challenges related to COVID-19, our financial performance in the fourth quarter and for the full year demonstrates the resilience of our people and our portfolio,” said Mark Costa, Board Chair and CEO. “We delivered record fourth-quarter adjusted EPS and resilient full-year EPS, reflecting the value of serving a diverse set of end markets, the benefit of our innovation-driven growth model, and our continued aggressive management of costs. We did an outstanding job of protecting our employees and maintaining the operational integrity of our facilities around the world during the global pandemic. In addition, given the uncertainties through the year, we took aggressive actions to prioritize cash flow and liquidity that resulted in greater than $1 billion of free cash flow for the fourth consecutive year. I’m incredibly proud and appreciative of all that our employees did to deliver these excellent results.” Segment Results 4Q 2020 versus 4Q 2019 Additives & Functional Products – Sales revenue increased 1 percent driven by 2 percent volume / mix growth. Lower pricing of 3 percent was mostly offset by a favorable currency impact of 2 percent. Double-digit growth in coatings additives was due to improving demand in the transportation end market and continued solid demand in building and construction. Care chemicals also had double-digit growth due to continued strength in the personal care end market. These gains were partially offset by continued weakness in the aviation end market, which has minimally recovered from the impact of COVID-19. The decline in price was mostly due to lower raw material prices and competitive pressure in product lines constituting about one-third of AFP segment revenues (including adhesives and tire additives) that are under strategic review. Adjusted EBIT increased due to cost reduction actions, partially offset by higher inventory costs resulting from lower capacity utilization earlier in the year and modest spread compression for products in the one-third of the AFP segment. The adjusted EBIT margin increased by 100 basis points. Advanced Materials – Sales revenue increased 6 percent driven by 6 percent volume / mix growth. Lower pricing of 2 percent was offset by a favorable currency impact of 2 percent. All businesses delivered revenue growth in the fourth quarter, led by performance films, which delivered mid-teens growth, continuing what has been a resilient year due to our innovation and market development efforts. Specialty plastics had a record fourth quarter for both revenue and earnings driven by continued strength across its end markets, including consumer durables and packaging. The decline in price was due to lower raw material prices, particularly for paraxylene. Reported and adjusted EBIT increased to record fourth-quarter levels due to volume / mix growth and cost reduction actions. The adjusted EBIT margin increased by 290 basis points. Chemical Intermediates – Sales revenue declined 8 percent driven by a 6 percent volume / mix decline. Lower selling prices of 3 percent were partially offset by a 1 percent favorable currency impact. Demand across many products lines strengthened during the fourth quarter. The 6 percent volume decline was mostly due to site maintenance shutdowns and the discontinuation of certain product lines at our Singapore facility. The discontinuation of these products is expected to negatively impact CI sales volume / mix approximately 5 percent in 2021 but have a favorable impact on EBIT. Lower pricing was due to lower raw material and energy prices. Reported and adjusted EBIT increased due to lower maintenance shutdown costs and cost reduction actions, partially offset by modest spread compression. Fibers – Sales revenue declined 8 percent due to a 6 percent decline in volume / mix and a 2 percent decline in price. Product mix was negatively impacted by the discontinuation of a tobacco specialty product and volume declined due to continued weakness in the textiles end market as a result of COVID-19. Acetate tow volume was stable. Price declined due to previously negotiated multi-year contracts for acetate tow. EBIT decreased due to less favorable product mix and lower prices. Corporate Results 2020 versus 2019 Sales revenue decreased 9 percent, mostly attributed to the negative impact of COVID-19 on global economic growth and on demand for certain products. Volume / mix was lower by 5 percent, which was resilient given the challenging market conditions. The slowdown in the global economy impacted all segments, particularly product lines used in transportation, building and construction, consumer durables, and textiles end markets. Pricing declined 4 percent with the largest impact in Chemical Intermediates. The drop in prices in 2020 was primarily driven by lower raw material and energy prices. Currency exchange impact was neutral for all segments. In response to the global pandemic, Eastman took several actions to improve results, further bolster our strong financial position, and ensure the integrity of our operations. Cost savings, both temporary and structural, totaled approximately $150 million for the year. These savings were more than offset by approximately $200 million of higher costs resulting from lower capacity utilization in response to weakened demand for certain products as a result of COVID-19 including approximately $100 million of costs related to inventory reduction as part of the prioritization of cash generation in 2020. Adjusted EBIT decreased due to lower capacity utilization and lower volume / mix, partially offset by cost reduction actions. Spreads were flat. Segment Results 2020 versus 2019 Additives & Functional Products – Sales revenue declined 8 percent due to 4 percent lower pricing and 4 percent lower volume / mix. The decline in price was mostly due to lower raw material prices and competitive pressure in the one-third of the AFP segment. Product lines serving end markets most impacted by COVID-19 had the largest decline in revenue, particularly aviation fluids and tire additives. Care chemicals had 5 percent volume / mix growth due to strengthened demand in more resilient end markets, particularly personal care. Adjusted EBIT decreased due to lower volume / mix and lower capacity utilization, partially offset by cost reduction actions. Advanced Materials – Sales revenue declined 6 percent due to a 4 percent decline in volume / mix and a 2 percent decline in price. An advanced interlayers volume decline more than offset specialty plastics volume growth. COVID-19 had a significant impact on advanced interlayers results, mostly due to lower auto builds. Specialty plastics had a record year for both revenue and earnings as end-market diversification proved valuable as demand remained solid for durables and packaging applications due to the pandemic. Performance films leveraged recent innovation and market development investments and significantly outpaced global auto sales in 2020. The decline in price was due to lower raw material prices, particularly for paraxylene. The strong recovery in the second half of the year helped to mitigate the impact of higher costs resulting from aggressive inventory management in the second quarter. Reported and adjusted EBIT decreased due to lower capacity utilization and lower volume / mix, partially offset by cost reduction actions and lower raw material costs. Chemical Intermediates – Sales revenue declined 14 percent due to 7 percent declines for both volume / mix and price. The segment revenue declines were mostly due to reduced demand and lower raw material prices due to COVID-19 for olefins, acetyls, and plasticizers products. Revenue for the functional amines product line, sold mostly into agriculture end markets, was stable. Reported and adjusted EBIT decreased due to lower capacity utilization, lower volume, and lower spreads, and partially offset by cost reduction actions and technology licensing earnings. Fibers – Sales revenue declined 4 percent due to 2 percent declines for both volume / mix and price. The volume decline was primarily due to the negative impact on demand from COVID-19 on the global textiles market. Volume was also negatively impacted by the discontinuation of a tobacco specialty product. Price declined due to previously negotiated multi-year contracts for acetate tow. EBIT decreased due to lower capacity utilization and less favorable product mix, partially offset by cost reduction actions. Cash Flow In 2020, cash from operating activities was $1.5 billion and free cash flow (cash from operating activities less net capital expenditures) was $1.1 billion and flat to 2019, despite headwinds from lower cash earnings. See Tables 5A and 5B. In 2020, the company returned $418 million to stockholders through dividends and share repurchases and reduced net debt (total borrowings less cash and cash equivalents) by $656 million excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rates. See Table 6. Priorities for uses of available cash for 2021 include payment of the quarterly dividend, the reduction of net debt, bolt-on acquisitions, and share repurchases. 2021 Outlook Commenting on the outlook for full-year 2021, Costa said: “We enter 2021 having delivered record fourth-quarter 2020 adjusted earnings per share (EPS) and strong free cash flow, as the global economy continues to recover. However, we still face uncertainty due to COVID-19 as we move forward into 2021. In this uncertainty, I am incredibly proud of how our team is focused on what we can control, starting with growing new business revenue by leveraging our innovation-driven growth model, which is enabling us to perform better than our recovering end markets, particularly for many of our specialty products. We also continue to aggressively manage costs and remain focused on disciplined capital allocation. Building on our strong recovery in the fourth quarter, we expect 2021 adjusted EPS to be 20 to 30% higher than 2020 adjusted EPS. And with our continued emphasis on cash generation, we expect our free cash flow to be greater than $1 billion for the fifth consecutive year.” The full-year 2021 projected earnings exclude any non-core, unusual or nonrecurring items. Our financial results forecasts do not include non-core items (such as mark-to-market pension and other postretirement benefit gain or loss and asset impairments and restructuring charges) or any unusual or non-recurring items, and we accordingly are unable to reconcile projected earnings excluding non-core and any unusual or non-recurring items to reported GAAP earnings without unreasonable efforts. Forward-Looking Statements This news release includes forward-looking statements concerning current expectations and assumptions for future global economic conditions and the impact of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic on demand in key end markets; competitive position and acceptance of specialty products in key markets; mix of products sold; capacity utilization, manufacturing costs, and cost reductions; and revenue, earnings, cash flow, cash and cash equivalents, and debt repayment for first quarter and full-year 2021.

CAPITAL DREAMS: Max Copeland represents Alabama in D.C.


first_img By Jaine Treadwell Skip Published 4:00 am Wednesday, August 1, 2018 Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Email the author Max thanked SAEC for giving him the opportunity to be a part of the Alabama Montgomery Youth Tour, which was the beginning of an amazing learning experience that included the National Youth Tour and the YLC Conference, both in Washington D.C.“I would not trade those three weeks for anything in the world,” Max said. “I now have a better idea of what I would like my future to be.”For Max, the decision to apply for acceptance into the Montgomery Youth Tour in March was the beginning of what would be stepping-stones to his future. Book Nook to reopen Latest Stories SAEC selects 12 high school juniors as delegates to the Montgomery Youth Tour through an interview and essay process.About 150 leaders from across the state spent two and half days in the state’s capital city learning about different aspects of state government and visiting places of historical significance and honing their social and leadership skills.For Max, the opportunity to visit Dexter Avenue Baptist Church where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was pastor, was a moving experience.“To be there and stand where Dr. King stood was an experience that I’ll never forget,” Max said. “When the leader asked if someone would like to pray and said I would. It gave me chill bumps to pray over everybody in that historic church.” Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson CAPITAL DREAMS: Max Copeland represents Alabama in D.C. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Daycenter_img Sponsored Content Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Print Article By The Penny Hoarder The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Pike Liberal Arts School senior Max Copeland represented the State of Alabama at the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s Youth Leadership Council (YLC) Conference in the nation’s capital in July. Max will represent his home state at the NREAC Annual Meeting, March 7-14, 2019, in Orlando Florida.“This was a tremendous honor for Max,” said Andy Kimbro, SAEC manager of member services. “We are very proud of Max and congratulate him on this great honor.”This is the first time an SAEC representative has been selected to represent the State of Alabama on the national level. You Might Like From the Montgomery Youth Tour, Max and Natalie Kennedy from Brantley High School were selected as members of a group of 45 high school juniors to represent Alabama at the National Youth Tour in Washington D.C. in June. More than 1,500 representatives from across the country spent a week learning about national government, visiting the houses of government and places of importance in the nation’s history.“In Washington, we learned more about cooperatives and the role they played in the development of our country,” Max said. “We also got to visit many different historic sites around Washington. I loved the city. Something was going on all the time. It was exciting.”The Alabama contingent chose Max as Alabama’s representative on the Youth Leadership Council and he flew back to Washington in July for the YLC Conference.At the conference, the representatives from across the United States became more familiar with the historical and political environment of the nation’s capital city through visits to monuments, government buildings and cooperative organizations. The students also visited elected officials to increase their knowledge of how the federal government works.Max said the YLC Conference was also an opportunity to build leadership and public speaking skills and life-long friendships with students from all across the country.“Getting to meet and to know so many young people from all across the country and talk to them face-to-face was a great experience,” he said. “It’s different from talking on iPhones and texting. It’s a lot more personal.”Max’s roommate was from California and he was interested to know what he knew about Alabama.“Football, food and church,” Max said. “That’s what Alabama means to him. I thought that was very interesting.”For Max, everything about the tours was interesting, so much so that he is considering majoring in political science, possibly at a university in the Washington D.C. area.“I would like to have the opportunity to participate in the NRECA’s summer internship program for college students in Washington D.C. and one day wind up on Capitol Hill,” Max said with a smile.Max is a member of the PLAS Class of 2019. At PLAS, he is a member of the Honor Society, the varsity football, basketball and baseball teams, SGA, Philosophy Club and Scholarship Bowl. He was president of his junior class.

Police: Four shot on college campus in Atlanta during block party


first_imgTheaDesign/iStock(ATLANTA) — At least four people were wounded Tuesday night when a shooting broke out at a back-to-school block party on a college campus in Atlanta, police said. An unidentified shooter opened fire into a crowd of about 200 people at the block party in front of the Robert W. Woodruff Library at Clark Atlanta University, a historically black private university located in Georgia’s capital. An initial investigation seems to indicate that the gunshots erupted around 10:30 p.m. local time after an argument between two groups at the party, according to a statement from the Atlanta Police Department.Campus police rendered aid to three women at the scene who had been shot. They were then transported to a local hospital for treatment, police said. A fourth woman who had been shot later showed up at the hospital to receive treatment. All four victims were listed in stable condition, according to police.Two of the women, ages 18 and 19, are said to be students at Clark Atlanta University while the other two, ages 17 and 18, are reportedly enrolled at Spelman College, a black liberal arts college for women in Atlanta. Both schools are part of the Atlanta University Center, the world’s largest and oldest academic consortium of black colleges and universities. Investigators do not believe the women were the intended targets of the shooting, police said. No arrests have been made as of Wednesday morning. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Man threatened to shoot Jewish camp while reporting social distancing violation: Police


first_imgNassau County Police DepartmentBy AARON KATERSKY and MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A New York man allegedly threatened to start a shooting while making a social distancing complaint about a Jewish day camp, officials said.Nicola Pelle, 58, of Inwood, Long Island, was charged with making terroristic threats after allegedly saying he was going to shoot people at the Yeshiva Ketana of Long Island’s children’s camp, the Nassau County Police Department said Tuesday.According to police, Pelle reported a COVID-19 social distancing violation at the yeshiva’s camp on Monday. He allegedly complained that “approximately 500 students were wearing no masks,” police said. While officers were en route to the camp, Pelle called again, officials said, this time allegedly threatening to “get a gun and shoot” if the police didn’t get there.“If I gotta go out there with a friggin’ machine gun and shoot all these people, I will,” Pelle allegedly said on the call, Nassau County Police Department Commissioner Patrick Ryder said at a press briefing Tuesday.Pelle made both complaints to the county health department, ABC New York station WABC reported.During the police investigation, Pelle identified himself as the caller, officials said. Nassau County police arrested Pelle, who lives next door to the yeshiva, on Monday.Following the arrest, police seized 14 weapons as evidence, including five handguns, rifles, shotguns and two assault weapons, officials said.“Our officers did an outstanding job by questioning the subject, getting him to admit that he did make that complaint and did make the threat to shoot the school up, and then going in and recovering the weapons,” Ryder said.All the weapons were legal, save for a Bushmaster .223 rifle, which is illegal under the New York State Safety Act because it has a pistol grip and a detachable clip, Ryder said.Pelle has a valid Nassau County Pistol Permit, police said.Pelle was arraigned on Tuesday and charged with making a terroristic threat and four counts of criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a firearm — all felonies. He is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday. Court records did not list an attorney for Pelle.Ryder said at the briefing Tuesday that the department takes threats to camps and schools seriously.“Last year alone, there were 570 incidents here in Nassau County,” he said, adding that 76 students were arrested.The yeshiva’s principal, Rabbi Tzvi Krigsman Menahel, told WABC he was “very thankful” for the police response.“They’ve been extremely informative, transparent, and we are very thankful to them, and we feel secure and we’re confident in the safety of our children and staff,” he told the station.Officers responding to the incident on Monday found about 30 children with their parents at the camp, police said.Confrontations over masks and social distancing have erupted during the coronavirus pandemic.Following news of the arrest on Tuesday, neighbors defended Pelle as a decent man.“He didn’t mean it,” one told WABC.After posting bail, Pelle was taken from his home by ambulance, WABC reported. His condition was not known at the time.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
