Universal Stainless Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

- Sales are $62.3 Million; EPS is $0.45

- Quarter-end Backlog Totals $68.3 Million

BRIDGEVILLE, Pa., Oct. 24, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Universal Stainless & Alloy Products, Inc. (Nasdaq:USAP) reported today that sales for the third quarter of 2012 were $62.3 million, which was 7% below the third quarter of 2011. The Company previously reported that lower order entry would impact 2012 third quarter sales.

Operating income for the third quarter of 2012 was $5.5 million, or 8.8% of sales, including $0.6 million of ramp-up expense for the Company's North Jackson operation due primarily to a production outage necessary to make modifications to its vacuum induction melting furnace ("VIM"). This compares with operating income of $7.2 million, or 10.7% of sales in the third quarter of 2011, which included $1.7 million of expense for the acquisition and start-up of North Jackson acquired by the Company in August 2011. Excluding the effect of North Jackson in both periods, operating income was 10.1% of sales in the third quarter of 2012 and 13.2% of sales in the third quarter of 2011.

Net income for the third quarter of 2012 was $3.3 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, including $0.06 per diluted share of North Jackson ramp-up expense. In the third quarter of 2011, net income was $3.9 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, including $0.14 per diluted share of after-tax acquisition and start-up expense related to North Jackson.

For the first nine months of 2012, sales increased 8% to $204.8 million from the same period of 2011. Net income for the first nine months of 2012 was $14.1 million, or $1.93 per diluted share, compared with $13.9 million, or $1.97 per diluted share, reported for the prior year period. Net income for the first nine months of 2012 included after-tax operating expense for the North Jackson ramp-up of $0.07 per diluted share compared to $0.22 per diluted share of North Jackson-related expense in the first nine months of 2011.
