EPS is $0.60 on Sales of $51.9 Million Cash Flow From Operations in 3Q10 is $8.8 Million Backlog is up 27% to $59 Million From End of 2Q10

BRIDGEVILLE, Pa., Oct. 27, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Universal Stainless & Alloy Products, Inc. (Nasdaq:USAP) reported today that sales for the third quarter of 2010 were $51.9 million compared with $25.3 million in the third quarter of 2009 and $51.3 million in the 2010 second quarter.

Net income for the third quarter of 2010 was $4.1 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, compared with $0.3 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2009, and $4.2 million, or $0.61 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2010.

The Company recorded positive cash flow from operations of $8.8 million in the third quarter of 2010 compared with $10.5 million in the third quarter of 2009. Cash flow from operations in 2010 totaled $4.9 million year to date. Capital expenditures for the 2010 third quarter were $1.7 million. At September 30, 2010, the Company had cash of $41.2 million and total debt of $11.5 million.

The Company noted that total shipment volume for the third quarter of 2010 remained level sequentially, while it was double the volume of the same quarter a year ago.   Compared with the second quarter of 2010, volume shipped to the aerospace market increased 24%, while petrochemical volume was level, and volumes shipped to the power generation and service center plate markets were down 6% and 12%, respectively.

President and CEO Dennis Oates commented: "Third quarter results were consistent with our expectation, with sales very modestly ahead of the strong second quarter. Our consolidated operating margin remained strong at 12.2% of sales, despite the rise in nickel prices. The operational improvements achieved are continuing to drive lower operating costs, higher yields and improved inventory turns.
