CAMP HILL, PA (August 2, 2018) - Harsco Corporation (NYSE: HSC) today reported second quarter 2018 results. On a U.S. GAAP ("GAAP") basis, second quarter of 2018 diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $0.48, which included Altek Group acquisition costs, a non-cash deferred tax asset valuation allowance adjustment, expenses incurred to amend and reprice the Company's credit facilities and a Metals & Minerals expense accrual reversal. Excluding these items, diluted earnings per share from continuing operations in the second quarter of 2018 were $0.36. These figures compare with second quarter of 2017 GAAP and adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $0.22.

GAAP operating income from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2018 was $54 million. Excluding the above unusual items, operating income for the second quarter of 2018 was $52 million, which exceeded the guidance range of $45 million to $50 million previously provided by the Company.

"The second quarter included a number of achievements and milestones for Harsco,” said President and CEO Nick Grasberger. “The company reached its highest level of quarterly profitability in a number of years and each segment delivered double-digit margins. In addition, the momentum across our businesses continued to strengthen, as evidenced by strong backlog growth within Rail and Industrial. The added market visibility and continued internal execution has enabled us to once again raise our guidance for the year.”

“We also continue to pursue a pipeline of growth opportunities across Harsco. During the quarter, we completed our first acquisition in Metals & Minerals in over a decade. Altek fits perfectly with our environmental solutions strategy and provides us a breakthrough innovation that expands Harsco’s capabilities in managing industrial waste into the aluminum industry. We are confident that our continued execution against our strategic priorities will enable Harsco to achieve its financial goals and create additional value for shareholders.”
