Ampco-Pittsburgh Announces Third Quarter Earnings

Stocks in this article: AP

Ampco-Pittsburgh Corporation (NYSE: AP) announces sales for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 of $72,190,000 and $215,751,000, respectively, in comparison to $74,263,000 and $258,303,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011. Net income approximated $1,528,000 or $0.15 per share and $5,037,000 or $0.49 per share for the quarter and year-to-date 2012, respectively. Net income for the same periods of 2011 was $2,756,000 or $0.27 per share and $19,555,000 or $1.90 per share. Income from operations equaled $3,748,000 and $10,793,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, respectively, compared to $3,835,000 and $29,479,000 for the same periods in 2011.

While sales and operating income for the three months ended September 30, 2012 approximated the comparable prior year period, sales and operating income for the nine months ended declined against the prior year principally due to weaker results for the Forged and Cast Rolls segment. Lower production and excess roll inventories of our global steel and aluminum customers continued to adversely affect demand for rolling mill rolls. Operating income was further impacted by margin erosion attributable to worldwide competition for business. In addition to the above, net income for the current year periods was impacted by higher income taxes (due to a lower proportion of net income before income taxes anticipated to be generated by the U.K. operation which is taxed at a lower statutory rate combined with the prior year benefiting from reversal of unrecognized tax benefits) and an increase in losses from our Chinese joint venture.

The matters discussed herein may contain forward-looking statements that are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from expectations. Certain of these risks are set forth in the Corporation's Annual Report on Form 10-K as well as the Corporation's other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
