Net sales for the quarter rose 7.4%, or $64.4 million, to $933.1 million from $868.7 million in the comparable quarter a year ago. Organic sales growth was 6.6%.
Net income from continuing operations for the quarter rose 29.6% to $201.8 million, or $3.63 per share, compared to $155.7 million, or $2.78 per share, in the comparable quarter a year ago. The current quarter was positively impacted by a lower effective tax rate due to the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (tax reform) of 18.3% compared to 27.7% in the second quarter of 2017. The balance of the increase in net income primarily reflects the increase in net sales described above and improvements to our operating margin resulting from the strength of our proprietary products and continued productivity efforts. This growth in net income was partially offset by higher interest expense.
Net loss from discontinued operations in the quarter was $5.6 million, or $0.10 loss per share attributable to the sale of Schroth.
Adjusted net income for the quarter rose 24.5% to $210.8 million, or $3.79 per share, from $169.3 million, or $3.03 per share, in the comparable quarter a year ago. Adjusted earnings per share in the current fiscal year includes $0.41 of favorable impact from the enactment of tax reform. Excluding this favorable tax impact, current earnings per share of $3.38 increased 11.6% over the prior year.
EBITDA for the quarter increased 10.5% to $439.4 million from $397.7 million for the comparable quarter a year ago.
