Glatfelter Reports First Quarter 2020 Results

Composite Fibers’ net sales increased $4.0 million or 3.1%, compared to the year-ago first quarter, driven by robust shipments in all categories, which was partially offset by unfavorable foreign currency translation of $3.1 million.

Composite Fibers’ first quarter 2020 operating income of $15.1 million was $3.8 million or 33% higher than first quarter 2019. Higher shipping volumes across all product categories favorably impacted results by $1.2 million. O

Airlaid Materials’ net sales decreased $1.6 million in the year-over-year comparison. Strong shipments of table top, home care and wipes products increased volume by 5.6%, while lower selling prices of $4.8 million for contractual pass-through arrangements and a $1.7 million impact from currency translation exceeded the benefits of favorable volume.

Airlaid Materials’ first quarter 2020 operating income of $12.0 million was $2.0 million or 20% higher when compared to the first quarter of 2019. Higher shipping volumes contributed $1.0 million of additional earnings while price declines due to raw material pass-through provisions were more than offset by lower raw material and energy prices, adding net $0.5 million of profit.
