Webco Industries, Inc. Reports Fiscal 2013 First Quarter Results

Interest expense was $1.0 million in the current year first quarter and $1.3 million in the prior year first quarter. The Company is party to an arrangement that swaps the variable interest rate for $75 million of the Company’s debt to a fixed rate from January 2013 through December 2017. The Company records the interest swap contract at fair value and non-cash changes in value are reported in Gains or Losses on Interest Contracts. Monthly swap settlements, if any, are included in interest expense. The reduction in interest expense in the current quarter is because the swap arrangement that existed in the comparable quarter in 2012 was modified to allow for a variable interest rate until January 2013.

Capital expenditures incurred amounted to $3.9 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. Capital spending for the full fiscal year 2013 is expected to be in the range of $10 to $14 million.
