Adjusted EBITDA (as defined and calculated in the attached table), a non-GAAP financial measure used by Edgen Group and its lenders to evaluate the performance of the business, was $34.1 million for the second quarter 2012 compared to $34.3 million for the second quarter 2011. Adjusted EBITDA increased $11.9 million, or 20%, to $70.5 million for the first six months of 2012 compared to $58.6 million for the first six months of 2011. As of June 30, 2012, the Company’s trailing twelve month Adjusted EBITDA was $136.5 million.Dan O’Leary, the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer stated, “We are extremely pleased with the sales growth in 2012 in both our E&I and OCTG segments. Within our E&I segment, we captured higher sales volumes in the U.S. Midstream energy market and saw increased sales in the Asia/Pacific region. Project activity slowed in Europe, but our MRO sales in that region remain steady.” Mr. O’Leary continued, “Our OCTG segment sales were positively impacted by market share gains, improved sales product mix, and a higher average rig count from rigs operating primarily in U.S. liquid-rich shale formations which require specialized alloy products.”
