HOUSTON, Dec. 21, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quanex Building Products Corporation (NYSE:NX), a leading manufacturer of engineered materials, components and systems serving domestic and international window and door OEMs through its Engineered Products and Aluminum Sheet Products Groups, today released fiscal 2012 fourth quarter and year-end results for the period ending October 31, 2012.

Consolidated fourth quarter 2012 net sales were $235.0 million, compared to $233.0 million a year ago. Fourth quarter 2012 diluted income from continuing operations was $0.03 per share compared to diluted income of $0.17 per share in the year ago quarter.

Consolidated net sales for 2012 were $829.0 million, compared to $848.3 million last year. The decrease in consolidated net sales was primarily attributable to a $78.2 million decline in net sales at Nichols Aluminum. 2012 diluted loss from continuing operations was $0.45 per share, compared to $0.24 of diluted income per share last year. The 2012 operating loss was due primarily to the strike-related cost at Nichols, insulating glass (IG) facility consolidation costs, and on-going ERP implementation costs.
