08:34 EDTKMGKMG Chemicals now sees FY15 revenue $315M-$325M, one estimate $349.6M
The projected decline in fiscal 2015 sales reflects decreased sales in the Wood Treating Chemicals segment primarily due to the divestiture of the creosote business, partially offset by growth in the Electronic Chemicals segment. The Company continues to forecast that fiscal 2015 adjusted EBITDA will be $32-35 million. Adjusted EBITDA excludes the anticipated gain on the sale of the creosote business as well as restructuring and realignment charges previously disclosed.
