CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Quaker Chemical Corporation ("the Company", also known as Quaker Houghton) (NYSE: KWR) today announced second quarter results and provided an update regarding the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company. Second quarter of 2020 net sales were $286.0 million, an increase of 39% compared to the second quarter of 2019. The increase was driven by additional net sales due to the Company's August 1, 2019 combination with Houghton International, Inc. ("Houghton"), which we refer to as "the Combination", as well as its October 1, 2019 acquisition of the operating divisions of Norman Hay plc ("Norman Hay"). Current quarter net sales declined approximately 27% compared to the prior year second quarter pro forma net sales of $390 million, which are adjusted to include the results of Houghton as well as certain other pro forma adjustments including the elimination of results associated with divested product lines. This quarter-over-quarter decline from pro forma net sales was primarily attributed to lower volumes reflecting the impact from COVID-19 on global industrial production and the negative impact from foreign currency translation which was partially offset by additional net sales from Norman Hay.
