PITTSBURGH, (February 4, 2019) – Kennametal Inc.

“In the second quarter of fiscal 2019 we delivered strong earnings per share results, margin improvement year-over-year and the eighth consecutive quarter of sales growth,” said President and Chief Executive Officer, Chris Rossi. “These results reflect our continued transformation of Kennametal and the ongoing monetization of our growth and simplification/modernization initiatives. As we look ahead to the second half of our fiscal year and the continued execution of those initiatives, we are reaffirming our previous outlook for the year,” said Rossi.
