DOW CORNING REPORTS SALES AND PROFITS FOR FIRST QUARTER OF 2012 - By Dow Corning


Midland, Mich.
Dow Corning Corp. today announced its financial performance for the first quarter of 2012.  Dow Corning recorded sales of $1.52 billion and net income $70.5 million.  Both sales and net income were lower than the first quarter of 2011.  Additional information about Dow Corning’s financial results:

First Quarter Results

  • Sales were $1.52 billion, 4 percent lower than last year’s first quarter.
  • While demand improved slightly over last year, prices were depressed globally.
  • Price pressure coupled with high raw material costs resulted in a decline in product margins.
  • Net income was $70.5 million, 61 percent lower than last year’s first quarter.

Comments from Dow Corning’s Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer J. Donald Sheets:

  • “As expected, this was a difficult quarter due to oversupply in both the silicone and polycrystalline silicon industries combined with rising raw materials and energy costs.” 
  • “While global demand continues to grow for our silicone-based materials, significant pricing pressure is impacting our performance.”
  • “Our Hemlock Semiconductor Group joint ventures will continue to be challenged by the oversupplied polycrystalline silicon industry throughout 2012.” 
  •  “As a cost-competitive manufacturer in both the silicone and polycrystalline silicon segments, we are well positioned to compete during this period of oversupply.”
  • “Protecting our competitive cost position at both Dow Corning and Hemlock Semiconductor remains essential to our long-term success, and we are aggressively pursuing opportunities to increase efficiency and reduce costs in our operations.”
  •  “Dow Corning continues to pioneer new technologies with a robust innovation portfolio that will drive margin growth in the future.”
