David R. Little, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, remarked, “We are pleased to report a strong third quarter as our sales strategies, operational excellence program and our expert DXPeople continue to take market share. Most of our customers and the markets we serve continue to show improvement, especially oil and gas. DXP continues to expand organically and pursue promising acquisition opportunities. We are very pleased to welcome our newest acquisition, Kenneth Crosby, to our DXP family. They have great people and are an excellent strategic fit, complementing both our existing DXP Supply Chain Service and Service Center businesses. KC accelerates our growth in the Northeast U.S. and provides strong free cash flow and will be accretive to earnings immediately. Our outlook for the remainder of 2011 and 2012 remains positive."

Mac McConnell, Senior Vice President and CFO, added, “As of September 30, 2011 our bank leverage ratio was down to 1.67 and approximately $51.6 million was available to be borrowed under our credit facility. Our bank has approved a $50 million increase in our credit facility, from $150 million to $200 million. DXP's Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to 200,000 shares of DXP's common stock. Under the authorization, the Company from time to time, over the next 24 months, would repurchase shares in the open market or through privately negotiated transactions depending on market conditions and other relevant factors. The primary purpose of the share repurchase plan is to offset potential dilution from shares issued under DXP's Restricted Stock Plan."
