Rohm and Haas Company Announces Preliminary First Quarter 2006 Results

Published on 2006-04-11. Author : SpecialChem

PHILADELPHIA, PA -- Rohm and Haas Company (NYSE: ROH) announced that it expects to report strong first quarter earnings performance in the range of $0.90 to $0.93 per share compared to $0.70 last year. Key drivers for this performance include:

Exceptionally strong Electronic Materials sales and earnings, particularly in the advanced technology products supporting the semi-conductor market.

Improved earnings in some of its largest chemical businesses, driven by higher demand, favorable product mix, and tight expense control as well as higher selling prices compared to a year ago.

Lower salt sales and earnings due to the warm winter weather driving slower sales for ice-control salt.

Rohm and Haas Company will release First Quarter 2006 earnings before the New York Stock Exchange opens on Monday, April 24, 2006 and will host a teleconference to review these results at 11:00 AM EDT.
