Consolidated Second Quarter Results

Second quarter 2018 net sales were $880 million on a consolidated basis, compared to $811 million in the second quarter of 2017. Operating profit decreased to $75 million from $95 million, while adjusted operating profit decreased to $96 million from $109 million in the second quarter of 2018 compared to the second quarter of 2017. The lower operating profit in the second quarter of 2018 was driven primarily by higher planned SG&A costs to support USG’s Customer-First strategy and rising costs, including higher transportation costs.

USG recorded $58 million in net income, or $0.41 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2018, compared to net income of $36 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2017. On an adjusted basis, net income of $70 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2018 increased from $64 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2017. A full reconciliation of GAAP to adjusted metrics is provided in the attached schedule.

The Company remains on track with Advanced Manufacturing, which delivered $6 million of incremental EBITDA this quarter. The program is expected to deliver $25 million of incremental EBITDA in 2018. In addition, the 2018 adjusted SG&A target of $355 million has not changed.
