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

Corporate Developments

On February 6, 2013, Reliance announced a definitive merger agreement whereby Reliance will acquire all outstanding shares of Metals USA Holdings Corp. (“Metals USA”) for $20.65 per share in cash, which, along with the assumption of Metals USA’s debt represents an enterprise value of approximately $1.2 billion. The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2013, subject to certain regulatory approvals. Metals USA’s unaudited assets and sales as of December 31, 2012 and for the year then ended were approximately $1.0 billion and $2.0 billion, respectively.

On February 19, 2013, the Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.30 per share of common stock, an increase of 20%. The dividend is payable on March 22, 2013 to shareholders of record March 1, 2013. The Company has increased its dividend 19 times since its initial public offering in 1994 and has paid regular quarterly dividends for 53 consecutive years.

Business Outlook

The Company expects that global economic and political uncertainty will continue to negatively impact the industry in the 2013 first quarter, pressuring both demand and pricing. However, the Company’s January tons sold improved modestly from the 2012 fourth quarter and pricing has been generally stable so far. As a result, for the first quarter ending March 31, 2013, management currently expects earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $1.05 to $1.15.
