OCTOBER 28, 1955 Dial PA-2-4600 for « WANT AD T«i«» Plate Glass Sales Higher , Than In 1954 Increase Of 39 Per ; Ceiil Reported For First Nine Months Sales for Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company and consolidated subsidiaries for the first nine months of 1955 were $428,949,993, an increase of 39 per cent over sales of 5309,278.171 for the same period of 1954. For the third quarter of 1955, the company had sales amounting to $140,414,174 as compared with $107,046,066 for the third quarter of the preceding year, according to Harry B.'ltiggins, president; The figures for 1955 include Canadian Pittsburgh Industries, Ltd., a wholly-owned Canadian subsidiary. Net earnings for the nine-month period ended September 30 were $45.377,010, equivalent to $4.87 per share, after the provision of $52,510,972 for income-taxes; During the same period of 1954, net in come was 527,530,062 or $2.99 per share after tax provisions amounting to $26,958,106. '• • • • For the third quarter, net earnings were $12,814,498, or $1.37 per share, after the provision of $15,320,731 for income taxes. This compares with net income of $10,621,890, or $1.14 per share, after income tax provisions of $9,815,200 for the third quarter of 1954. Although sales and earnings ' thus far in 1955 are substantially ahead of those for the previous year, Mr. Higgins pointed out that the decline in earnings from the second quarter of 1955 was due principally to a 75-day strike which ended September 12 at Columbia - Southern Chemical Corporation's largest manufactur 1 ing plant. Columbia-Southern is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pittsburg Plate. All of the firm's major chemical plants are operating under two to five-year contracts. Mr. Higgins also staled that during the last quarter the labor contract covering about 32,500 glass division production employes was extended for a three-year period without, provision for reopening. In addition, two of the largest plants • in the company's paint division recently agreed to three-year contracts. During the past month, the firm purchased an 80-acre site for a multi-million dollar window or heavy sheet glass plant at Decatur, III. Current schedules indicate that, the new window glass plant will be in production by late 1956 or early 1957. v Soulh's Largest Lake Okeechohee, in Florida, Is the largest lake in the southern states.
