Basis of Presentation

On May 2, 2012, we completed an initial public offering (“IPO”) of common stock and were party to a series of transactions (the “Reorganization”). As a result of the IPO and the Reorganization, we are the parent holding company of Edgen Murray Corporation (“EMC”) and Bourland & Leverich Supply Co. (“B&L”) and have consolidated the results of these businesses with our own. EMC and B&L comprise the historical businesses of Edgen Murray II, L.P. (“EM II LP”) and Bourland & Leverich Holdings LLC (“B&L Holdings”), respectively, which comprise 100% of our E&I and OCTG segments, respectively. The Reorganization has been accounted for as a transaction between entities under common control, as we, EM II LP, EMC, B&L and B&L Holdings have been since July 2010, and continue to be, under the collective common control of affiliates of Jefferies Capital Partners (“JCP”).
