16:58 EDTKMGKMG Chemicals files to delay 10-K
The company said, "The principal reason that we cannot file our annual report on Form 10-K within the prescribed period without unreasonable effort is that we have not yet completed managementís assessment of the effectiveness of our internal controls over financial reporting. The process was more time-consuming than anticipated, because of a reliance on many manual processes and the significant effort to document and test internal controls across the subsidiaries in Europe and Asia that were part of our ultra pure chemicals acquisition in May 2013. We expect that we will be able to complete the work necessary to file our Form10-K for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2013 within the fifteen day extension period provided by Rule 12b-25."

10:25 EDTRPMRPM says Q1 results was 'on track' with its earnings plan
RPM said it expected a flat performance in Q1 after experiencing "extraordinary performance' due to results in Synta and Kirker subsidiaries. The company did not expect the performance to continue this year. The comparisons will continue to be negative in Q2 and be fairly flat for 2H15. The company also said there was $5.6M in unplanned costs due to the SEC investigation, the proposed SPHC settlement, and a voluntary self-disclosure agreement with the state of Delaware for unclaimed property. RPM expects costs for these three categories to continue in Q2 and Q3. When accounting for these facts, RPM says it is right on track with its earnings plan and says its consumer segment is continuing to perform well with mid-EBIT growth. The company also said more normal winter weather should help Q3. RPM expressed concern about the weak Euro, and says its outlook for the European economy remains mixed. Comments taken from Q1 earnings conference call.

07:59 EDTRPMRPM comments on SPHC plan of reorganization
On September 26, 2014, SPHC filed its plan of reorganization in Delaware Bankruptcy Court. The plan memorializes the settlement in principle reached with representatives of current and future asbestos claimants. As previously reported, a trust will be established to resolve all current and future Bondex asbestos claims, an injunction will be issued by the court that will permanently protect SPHC, RPM International Inc., their affiliates, and other parties from current and future asbestos claims, and SPHC will emerge from bankruptcy and will be reconsolidated with RPM. RPM currently anticipates that the plan's effective date and the reconsolidation of SPHC's financial results will occur in RPM's fiscal 2015 third quarter, but the actual timeline could change based on a variety of factors beyond the control of SPHC and RPM. The impact of the completion of this transaction on RPM's 2015 fiscal year will be dependent on specific timing and related transaction costs. On an annualized basis, SPHC has revenues of approximately $400M. CEO Frank Sullivan said, "We look forward to plan confirmation for SPHC and its emergence from bankruptcy. While the amounts required to fund a 524g trust are substantial from a financial perspective, this transaction will be good for RPM shareholders, both in terms of our ongoing operations and as a process which will bring finality to the Bondex asbestos liability."
