Management Comments

"We ended a record year of performance with solid results in the fourth quarter," said Carl Christenson, Altra President and CEO. "For the year, we grew revenues 8.5% to $732 million, and reported $1.52 in non-GAAP earnings per share, a record for the Company. For the quarter, revenues grew 3.2% to $177.2 million and we reported non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.36. We improved gross profit during the year, ending with a 30.4% gross margin for the fourth quarter and 29.9% for 2012. During the fourth quarter we refinanced our 8.125% Senior Secured Notes for a significant cost savings going forward, substantially completed the European restructuring actions we had previously announced, made progress on our strategy to penetrate emerging countries, and continued to take actions to enhance productivity and operational efficiency."
