Sypris Reports Third Quarter Results

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, the Company reported revenue of $274.1 million compared to $252.0 million for the prior year period and income from continuing operations of $11.1 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, as compared to $7.0 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, for the prior year period.

Income from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 included a foreign currency translation loss of $0.9 million, a gain of $2.6 million on the sale of idle assets and a gain of $1.9 million in connection with the sale of marketable securities, while income from continuing operations for the prior year period included gains of $3.0 million in connection with a customer settlement, $4.2 million from the disposition of idle assets and a foreign currency translation gain of $2.1 million.

The Company’s net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $4.0 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, and included one-time expenses of $7.1 million in discontinued operations related to the resolution of the arbitration case mentioned earlier. Net income for the prior year period was $6.6 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, and included a loss of $0.5 million associated with the arbitration case and the positive impact of the gains mentioned previously.

“Our Industrial Group responded well to the unexpected reduction in the production of commercial vehicles, which resulted in a 21.3% sequential decline in quarterly revenue,” said Jeffrey T. Gill, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We now expect the production of commercial vehicles to remain soft in the short-term as OEMs work to rebalance inventory with demand.”

“However, with an estimated 70% of the vehicles on the road today being of an age that is in excess of eight years, the eventual replacement cycle is expected to be robust for an extended period of time. In the interim, we believe that our improved cost profile and strong operational performance, which resulted in a 60 basis point increase in gross margin during the most recent quarter when compared to the same period last year, will enable us to sustain the profitability of this business.”
