The company announced first-quarter non-GAAP income of $9.7 million, or 47 cents a share, vs. $9.7 million, or 38 cents a share, a year ago.

The company also guided for EPS growth of 5% to 15% for 2008. The forecast includes a 1-cent to 2-cent positive per-share impact from an additional week in this fiscal year.

Franklin Park, Ill.'s A.M. Castle (CAS), a distributor of specialty metals and plastics, saw shares climb 12% to $30.62. The company posted first-quarter income of $13.8 million, or 62 cents a share, compared with $15.6 million, or 81 cents a share, in the year-ago quarter.
