  • Diluted EPS up 24% year-over-year, despite a 6% increase in diluted shares outstanding

Chairman of the Board Harry Kletter commented, “2010 was another great year. Our sales have grown at a compound annual rate of 85% per year for each of the last two years, increasing from $100 million in 2008 to $181 million in 2009 to $343 million in 2010. This has occurred during one of the most difficult economic times since the 1930’s. We ended 2010 with a strong balance sheet, including a current ratio of 3.6-to-1 and low leverage.

“In 2011 we will focus on increasing our profit margins. We are in a position for continued growth in 2011 and will be looking forward to the new equipment that we invested in during the year to help us become more profitable and efficient.”

In addition to investing in profit-enhancing equipment, management also continues to scrutinize operating costs. Both initiatives should help ISA expand its profit margins in 2011 and beyond.

We also increased our credit facility during 2010, enabling us to continue our rapid pace of growth. We anticipate increasing our credit facility commensurate with the growth in our equity base and profits. More availability under the credit facility, combined with our continued focus on efficiently turning our inventory, should allow us to generate incremental sales and profitability.

Operational Highlights:
  • Increased scrap shipments 56% over 2009 levels
  • Upgraded the non-ferrous separation system at our shredding operation
  • Moved the Alloys division into a 150,000-square foot building that we own but had previously rented to an independent third party.

(1) EBITDA is calculated by the Company as net income before interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization. The Company uses EBITDA as a key performance measure of results of operations for purposes of evaluating performance internally. This non-GAAP measurement is not intended to replace the presentation of our financial results in accordance with GAAP. Rather, we believe the EBITDA calculation provides additional information to investors and debt holders due to the fact that tax credits, tax rates and other tax related items vary by company. Additionally, years of service for fixed assets and amortizable assets are based on company judgment. Finally, companies have several ways of raising capital which can affect interest expense. We believe the presentation of EBITDA provides a meaningful measure of performance exclusive of these unique items.
