Universal Stainless Reports 2010 Fourth Quarter Results

EPS is $0.52 on Sales of $51.6 Million

Backlog of $69 Million is Highest in Two Years and Up 18% from End of 3Q10

BRIDGEVILLE, Pa., Jan. 26, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Universal Stainless & Alloy Products, Inc. (Nasdaq:USAP) reported today that sales for the fourth quarter of 2010 were $51.6 million compared with $26.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2009 and $51.9 million in the 2010 third quarter.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $3.6 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, compared with $1.0 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2009, and $4.1 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2010.

The Company recorded negative cash flow from operations of $3.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2010 due to its investment in managed working capital to support increased sales activity and backlog. This compares with positive cash flow from operations of $2.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. For full year 2010, cash flow from operations was $1.3 million. Capital expenditures for the 2010 fourth quarter were $2.3 million. At December 31, 2010, the Company had cash of $34.9 million and total debt of $10.8 million.  

The Company noted that total shipment volume for the fourth quarter of 2010 was 3% lower than the third quarter of 2010, but 84% higher than the fourth quarter a year ago. Compared with the third quarter of 2010, volume shipped to the power generation market increased 22% and petrochemical volume rose 7%, while volumes shipped to the aerospace and service center plate markets were lower by 6% and 54%, respectively.

Chairman, President and CEO Dennis Oates commented: "Our fourth quarter sales were in line with the third quarter as expected and more heavily weighted towards lower margin semi-finished products. Some customers elected to delay December shipments until January as a part of their year-end inventory planning. Order entry from all markets continued to build positive momentum and backlog at the end of the year rose to a two-year high of $69 million."
