Allegheny Technologies Announces Second Quarter 2012 Results

“Demand remained strong from the medical market for our premium products for both surgical implants and MRI superconducting magnets.

Strategy and Outlook

“We remain focused on long-term value creation for our stockholders while delivering superior value for our customers. Our industry-leading specialty metals technologies, diversified alloy systems and product forms, global and diversified market focus, unsurpassed manufacturing capabilities, and integrated capabilities from alloy development, to raw materials (titanium sponge), to melting and hot-working, to finished value-added components and parts are unique in the world. This strategy has ATI well-positioned to achieve significant revenue and earnings growth over the next three to five years. We expect strong secular growth in our key global markets of aerospace, oil and gas/chemical process industry, electrical energy, and medical. We have identified and targeted nearly $2 billion in potential new annual revenue growth within the next five years from our new manufacturing capabilities and innovative new products. ATI’s diversification and focus on high-value global markets with strong secular growth gives us continued expectation of long-term revenue growth and improved profitability.

“As we look at the second half of 2012, slower than expected economic growth in the U.S. and China, fiscal and economic uncertainties in Europe, fiscal and regulatory uncertainties in the U.S., and falling raw material costs create near-term headwinds for demand growth. Businesses and consumers are being cautious and inventories are being managed aggressively. In addition, we expect third quarter 2012 revenue and volume to be impacted by normal seasonal summer slowdowns in many supply chains. As a result, we expect sales and earnings to trough in the third quarter 2012.

“While there is caution in the aerospace supply chain, the fundamentals of the build rate ramp and the need for energy- and cost-efficient airplanes remain in place. We expect our backlog of infrastructure project work to begin to grow again through third quarter orders for our titanium, nickel-based alloy, and specialty alloy flat-rolled products. We are well positioned to benefit from a number of large projects expected from the oil and gas market and chemical process industry, including desalination, with shipments beginning in the fourth quarter 2012.
