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

On April 16, 2015, PPG’s Board of Directors approved a two-for-one split of the Company’s common stock payable on June 12, 2015. This means that for every share of the Company’s common stock you own on June 12, 2015, you will receive one additional share. Shares of the Company’s common stock will begin trading on June 15, 2015 at half of the closing price on June 12, 2015. Thereafter, the price of the shares will be based on market conditions.

The goal of the split is to expand the Company’s shareholder base and increase liquidity in trading of the shares. The split will make the price of shares of the Company’s common stock more affordable and potentially more attractive to new investors.
