Recycling Volumes – 2 nd Quarter Summary
  • Stainless volumes decreased 62.0% from the second quarter of 2010
  • Ferrous volumes increased 21.8% from the second quarter of 2010
  • Non-Ferrous volumes increased 38.8% from the second quarter of 2010

Brian Donaghy, President and Chief Operating Officer of ISA stated, "We saw a dramatic change in stainless market conditions during the second quarter of 2011. Virtually every stainless scrap provider, including ISA, saw demand dwindle as a result of the world-wide decrease in demand for stainless steel and other nickel-based scrap. We believe that consumers have worked down their inventory levels, and we are optimistic that demand will soon rebound.

“We took advantage of continued strong ferrous and non-ferrous scrap market conditions during the quarter and substantially increased our shipments in these commodities. This helped offset the downturn in our stainless business. However, like many other scrap companies, we experienced some pressure on margins as we had to pay higher prices to fill customer orders.

“We also used the seasonally soft summer to refine operations. We undertook a thorough review of all of our personnel, streamlining, hiring and reallocating certain employees to areas where they can make the most impact. This included bolstering our Alloys division with industry veterans who have extensive supplier relationships and who can help develop our Alloys team. We feel very good about the team we have in place today, just in time for the return of more favorable market conditions.”

Harry Kletter, Chairman of the Board of ISA, stated, “After spending over 60 years in the industry I can tell you that the scrap business is in the early stages of growth but there will be continued consolidation. I envision a hand full of major companies that will partner up with mills which will dominate the industry, which ISA plans to be involved with. The company will continue to look for strategic relationships and other alternatives during the next few years to enhance stockholder value.

“As the economy improves, the scrap industry will continue to grow and we will continue to expand our presence. The recent investment we made in the stainless and alloys operations have given us the ability to further grow and diversify. As the world demand for scrap continues to increase, we plan to take advantage of the many opportunities ahead. During the past two years we have had tremendous growth and now our current focus is to become a much more efficient operation with increased margins.”

(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.
