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

The fabrication backlog continues to decline but management is seeing recent stabilization. The current backlog remains satisfactory for scheduling and production control.  Approximately 45% of fabrication's current backlog comes from paper and wastewater treatment projects and 44% is for chemical projects. Total fabrication backlog was $19,254,000 at December 29, 2012 and $22,743,000 at December 31, 2011.

Specialty Chemicals Segment's sales and profit improvement should continue in 2013 as the additional defoamer business has been completely implemented in production and the Specialty Chemicals Segment will reflect a full year of higher production in its 2013 results. Management is also pursuing additional sales opportunities for non-defoamer products. Operating margins should remain at current levels as management believes they can be successful in passing raw material price increases to the customer.

Statements included in this earnings release include non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) measures and should be read along with the accompanying tables which provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures. Adjusted EPS is a non-GAAP measure and excludes the after-tax effect of acquisition costs, inventory losses and tax rate changes. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide additional useful information to allow readers to compare the financial results between periods. Non-GAAP measures should not be considered as an alternative to any measure of performance or financial condition as promulgated under GAAP, and investors should consider the company's performance and financial condition as reported under GAAP and all other relevant information when assessing the performance or financial condition of the company. Non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical tools, and investors should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the company's results or financial condition as reported under GAAP.
