Second Quarter 2013 Management Discussion

“We are pleased to announce increased sales and backlog over the first quarter of 2013,” said Dan O’Leary, Chairman and Chief Executive officer. “Elevated quotation activity and recent project bookings at the close of the second quarter reinforce our optimism about future opportunities for Edgen Group, particularly into 2014. Pricing pressure and project delays still had an impact in the second quarter, however we remained focused on improving the mix of products that we sold, providing exceptional service to our customers with active drilling programs, and adding new customers, especially in areas that we expect will gain traction when market conditions improve.”
