Management Commentary

“Second quarter same store tons sold increased 3.7% compared to the prior quarter, due in part to an extra shipping day in the second quarter along with slight improvement in overall demand levels. However, the weak pricing environment continued, leading to a 2.7% reduction in our same store average price per ton sold, relative to the first quarter,” said David H. Hannah, Chairman and CEO of Reliance. “In general for the 2013 second quarter, both demand and pricing were a bit weaker than we anticipated at the end of the previous quarter. We remain highly focused on managing all aspects of the business that are within our control, which continues to mitigate much of the impact from these challenging market conditions. Inventory turns improved somewhat compared to the prior quarter and gross margins declined slightly but were solid in light of the weak pricing we experienced—each indicative of the strong operational performance of our managers in the field.”
