Edgen Group Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results

Stocks in this article: EDG

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.”

Outlook

The Company is focused on executing its organic sales growth strategy for the remainder of 2012 and maintains its annual guidance based on current market conditions and customer business levels. The monitoring of market drivers including oil and natural gas prices, global rig count, and expected customer energy and infrastructure spending will continue. The Company is exploring alternatives for refinancing its Senior Secured Notes, focusing on strengthening its balance sheet, and investing in its future.
