PPG Industries: Bringing innovation to the surface

Investor Center

“We continued to deliver strong financial results, including 20 percent adjusted earnings-per-share growth. Contributing to our record performance were the benefits from our recent strategic actions and cash deployment. These included incremental acquisition-related earnings along with a 2 percent reduction in our share count as compared to the prior year.

Both of our coatings segments delivered all-time-record first quarter earnings, and the glass segment delivered its highest first quarter earnings in more than 10 years. Our ongoing cost and productivity initiatives, continued PPG volume growth in certain end-use markets and an accelerating company growth rate in emerging regions aided our segment results. “

Charles E. Bunch, Chairman and CEO, PPG Industries
