OMNOVA Solutions Inc. reported net income of  $5.1 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, for the second quarter, which ended May 31, 2009, compared to a net loss of $3.1 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2008.  Included in the second quarter of 2009 were restructuring and severance charges of $0.8 million and a net pension plan curtailment gain of $0.7 million resulting from the suspension of the accrual of future service benefits for all salary and non-union hourly employees and certain union hourly employees.

"Our improved second quarter performance reflects the impact from a number of positive actions by the company, including broad-based cost reductions, structurally improved pricing and the introduction of innovative new products, as well as lower raw material costs," said Kevin McMullen, OMNOVA Solutions' chairman and CEO.

Selling, general expenses, and administrative expenses in the second quarter of 2009 fell to $25.7 million, compared to $27.5 million in the second quarter of 2008.  Second quarter 2009 interest expenses were $2.0 million, a decrease of $1.5 million as compared to the second quarter of 2008; this was due to lower average interest rates and debt.  The weighted average cost of borrowing during the second quarter of 2009 was 4.4%, an improvement from 6.6% in the second quarter of 2008.
