NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Louisiana-Pacific Corporation (LP) (NYS: LPX) reported today results for the second quarter of 2013, which included the following:

  • Total sales for the second quarter of $573 million were higher by 34 percent compared to the year ago quarter.
  • Income from continuing operations was $94 million ($0.65 per diluted share).
  • Non-GAAP adjusted income from continuing operations was $59 million ($0.41 per diluted share).
  • Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the second quarter was $122 million compared to $37 million in the second quarter of 2012.

"This was another good quarter for LP as the U.S. housing market continues to recover," said Curt Stevens, CEO. "While OSB prices moderated during the second quarter, this segment showed good earnings. Strong demand in Siding and South America also added to our results."


For the second quarter of 2013, LP reported income from continuing operations of $94 million, or $0.65 per diluted share, as compared to a loss from continuing operations of $37 million, or $0.27 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2012.

COMPANY OUTLOOK

"Housing starts appear to have been constrained by weather, labor and financing issues in the second quarter. We will continue to be agile in our operations as the weather improves and builders address these issues. The consensus projection for housing starts for this year is a 25 percent increase over 2012, with starts projected to increase at least another 25 percent in 2014. We will be ready to respond," concluded Stevens.
