Reliance Steel & Aluminum Co. Reports 2012 Fourth Quarter And Full Year Financial Results

Mr. Hannah continued, “In February 2013, we announced our agreement to acquire Metals USA for approximately $1.2 billion in an all cash transaction. Metals USA will be our largest acquisition to date and nicely complements Reliance’s existing customer base, product mix and geographic footprint. We expect to close the transaction in the 2013 second quarter and it is expected to be immediately accretive upon closing. Metals USA has demonstrated consistent performance with solid returns and we believe that the combined company will be well positioned to continue to outperform the broader metals service center industry.”
