(NASDAQ: IDSA), a company that buys, processes and markets ferrous and non-ferrous metals and other recyclable commodities for domestic users and export markets, and offers programs and equipment to help businesses manage wastes, today reported financial results for the first quarter ending March 31, 2011.

For the three months ending March 31, 2011:
  • Total revenue was $106.2 million in the first quarter of 2011, compared with $74.2 million in the first quarter of 2010.
  • Net income was $2,166,782 (basic and diluted earnings of $0.31 per share) in the first quarter of 2011, compared with $1,763,264 (basic and diluted earnings of $0.27 per share) in the first quarter of 2010. Basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding were 6,885,170 and 6,928,448 respectively in the first quarter of 2011 and were 6,449,522 and 6,487,650 respectively (split-adjusted) for basic and diluted shares in the first quarter of 2010.
  • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) for the first quarter of 2011 was $5,229,971 compared with EBITDA of $4,132,001 for the first quarter of 2010. (See attached reconciliation.)

Key Highlights for the First Quarter Ending March 31, 2011
  • Revenue up 43% year-over-year
  • Net Income up 23% year-over-year
  • Diluted EPS up 15% year-over-year, despite a 7% increase in diluted shares outstanding
  • EBITDA up 27% year-over-year

Chairman of the Board Harry Kletter commented, “ISA had another record quarter, with revenue up 43% over last year’s first quarter. Even though some of this increase was from higher commodity prices, our unit volume was up 37% over the first quarter of 2010. Our earnings also posted strong growth, increasing 23% over the first quarter of 2010. These results are particularly impressive when you consider that they surpass the record results we posted in the first quarter of last year.”

Mr. Kletter continued, “We remain focused on improving margins in 2011, and we will work hard to improve margins to that we can increase earnings growth even without substantial growth on the top-line. Our Chief Operating Officer is implementing a number of process improvements and other operating efficiencies designed to expand margins.

“Our balance sheet also continued to strengthen during the first quarter, with our current ratio improving to 3.8x and our leverage ratios decreasing. We expect these trends to continue throughout the remainder of the year.”

ISA also reports that Terry Hancock resigned from the Company last month. Brian Donaghy, ISA’s President & Chief Operating Officer, is overseeing the operation of ISA Alloys, along with the other 30 members of the Alloys team.

(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.
