Albany International Corp. (NYSE:AIN) completed the sale of its global Albany Door Systems (“ADS”) business to ASSA ABLOY AB on January 11, 2012, for $130 million, subject to customary post-closing adjustments. The operating results and financial position of ADS are therefore reported as discontinued operations. Although the gain from the ADS sale will be reflected in Q1 2012 results, the transaction resulted in a discrete tax charge that reduced Q4 2011 results from continuing operations by $22.1 million.
Total Company fourth-quarter 2011 net loss was $7.2 million ($0.23 per share), including income from discontinued operations of $1.2 million ($0.04 per share), restructuring charges of $4.9 million ($0.10 per share), foreign currency revaluation gains of $3.6 million ($0.08 per share), and unfavorable income tax adjustments of $15.5 million ($0.50 per share). For the fourth quarter of 2010, the Company reported net income of $20.5 million ($0.66 per share), including a gain on the sale of a building of $7.0 million ($0.15 per share), income from discontinued operations of $2.9 million ($0.09 per share), restructuring charges of $1.0 million ($0.02 per share), foreign currency revaluation gains of $3.2 million ($0.07 per share), and favorable income tax adjustments of $2.8 million ($0.09 per share).
