Carpenter Technology Reports Fourth Quarter Results

** Carpenter issued 8.1 million shares of common stock as part of the Latrobe acquisition. The weighted average impact was 8.1 million and 2.7 million shares for the three months and year ended June 30, 2012, respectively.

Carpenter Technology Corporation (NYSE:CRS) today reported net income attributable to Carpenter of $40.8 million or $0.77 per share for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. Legacy Carpenter earnings, before Latrobe-related income and share dilution, would have been $0.80 per share. The net accretion from Latrobe’s operating results before inventory fair value cost adjustments, offset by a higher share count, contributed $0.08 per share – resulting in adjusted earnings per share before Latrobe inventory fair value cost adjustments of $0.88. During the quarter, the Company had $0.11 per share of Latrobe inventory fair value cost adjustments, resulting in reported earnings of $0.77 per share. Further detail on the Latrobe impacts to earnings is provided in the attached Non-GAAP Financial Schedules.

“We had a very strong finish to an excellent year,” said William A. Wulfsohn, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We exceeded our financial goals. These results were driven by solid execution of our strategies to grow premium product output while improving productivity, mix and pricing. For the year, the legacy Carpenter business saw a 68 percent increase in operating income, excluding pension EID. SAO average profit per pound improved by $0.44 over the course of the year, and we reduced our manufacturing cost per ton for the third straight year. We also shipped 4,500 additional premium tons this year and expect to ship about 4,000 additional premium tons over each of the next two years.

“A highlight of the year was our acquisition of Latrobe Specialty Metals. The integration process is going extremely well, and we are even more excited about the strategic value and synergies from this transaction. As we expected, the acquisition has been immediately accretive to earnings per share, excluding acquisition related costs. We remain confident that we will achieve at least $25 million of net pre-tax synergies by year three.
