CLEVELAND, OHIO, October 25, 2018 - The Sherwin-Williams Company (NYSE: SHW) announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018. Compared to the same period in 2017, consolidated net sales increased $224.5 million, or 5.0%, to $4.73 billion in the quarter and increased $2.47 billion, or 22.4%, to $13.47 billion in nine months. The increase in the quarter was due primarily to higher paint sales volume in The Americas and Consumer Brands Groups and selling price increases.

The new revenue standard reduced consolidated net sales approximately .8% in the quarter and first nine months.

Diluted net income per share in the quarter increased to $3.72 per share from $3.33 per share in 2017. Third quarter 2018 diluted net income per share included charges of $1.09 and $.87 per share from the California litigation and acquisition-related costs, respectively. The pre-tax charge for the California litigation of $136.3 million is one-third of the amount of the abatement fund, as recalculated by the trial court. Currency translation rate changes decreased diluted net income per share in the quarter by $.09 per share.
