Synalloy's Fourth Quarter Earnings Per Share Increase By 45% Excluding Palmer Acquisition Costs

SPARTANBURG, S.C., Feb. 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synalloy Corporation (Nasdaq:SYNL), a producer of stainless steel pipe, fiberglass ("FRP") and steel storage tanks, specialty chemicals and a fabricator of stainless and carbon steel piping systems announces that the fourth quarter of 2012 produced net sales of $53,138,000, up 32% compared to net sales of $40,241,000 for the fourth quarter of 2011. Net earnings for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $965,000 or $0.15 per share. This compares to net earnings of $1,017,000, or $0.16 per share for 2011's fourth quarter. Sales for the entire year of 2012 were $197,659,000, up 16% compared to net sales of $170,575,000 for 2011. Net earnings were $4,235,000 or $0.66 per share for 2012 compared to $5,797,000 or $0.91 per share for 2011. Inventory losses arising from fluctuations in nickel prices in our Metals Segment had a larger negative impact on the Company's reported earnings for 2012 compared to the prior year. The approximate effect of inventory losses on 2012's total year results was a reduction of reported earnings by $0.48 per share while reducing reported earnings per share for 2011 by $0.17 per share. In addition, the Company recorded $252,000 and $881,000 of acquisition costs associated with the acquisition of Palmer of Texas ("Palmer") in the fourth quarter and total year of 2012, respectively. Also included in the fourth quarter and entire year of 2012 was $540,000 of intangible asset amortization expense associated with the Palmer acquisition. Both of these cost categories associated with the acquisition reduced earnings per share for the fourth quarter and total year of 2012 by $0.08 and $0.15 per share, respectively. Finally, the fourth quarter of 2011 reflected a lower effective tax rate of 20.7% compared to 34.5% used for the fourth quarter of 2012. During the prior year, the Company had a large favorable tax adjustment resulting in the 20.7% rate. If the 2012 fourth quarter effective tax rate was used in the prior year, earnings per share for the fourth quarter 2011 would have been $0.03 lower.
