David R. Little, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer remarked, “We are pleased to report a strong fourth quarter and a rewarding 2011. Our expert workforce ("DXPeople") continue to do an amazing job. All three segments grew revenues and profits with Innovative Pumping Solutions leading the way with 33% and 64% revenue and profit growth, respectively. DXP Service Centers was second with an excellent 24% and 28% revenue and profit growth, respectively. DXP Supply Chain Services finished with 14% and 19% revenue and profit growth, respectively. We are excited about our two acquisitions, Kenneth Crosby and C.W. Rod, which will now make a fifth product division called Metal Workings Products. Note that the other four product divisions; Rotating Equipment, Bearings & Power Transmissions, Safety Services and Industrial Supply all had excellent revenue growth in 2011. We grew EBITDA margins from 7.1% in 2010 to 8.1% and we still feel good about our 10% EBITDA margin goal by 2013. Our after tax return on invested capital is one of the highest returns in our Industry at 30 plus percent. DXPeople increased from approximately 1,800 to 2,100. Our DXP Service Center Segment added six new SuperCenters for a total of 28. We built a new Atlantic ballistic distribution center to improve customer service in the South Atlantic area.

Our total number of DXP Service Centers increased from 112 to 123. I added two new members to our senior executive team for growth. Our balance sheet is strong as we continue to manage working capital and our debt structure. Our bank increased our line of credit from $150 million to $200 million. DXPeople certainly had many accomplishments in 2011 and I feel that this will position us to have an even stronger 2012."

Mac McConnell, Senior Vice President and CFO, added, “We are excited about our fourth quarter and annual financial results which reflect our continued focus on customers and growth in the market. The revenue growth, combined with our operating discipline, helped us improve margins quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year, while growing EBITDA. I was also very pleased that DXP was able to generate over $21.7 million in free cash flow which was primarily used to complete two significant acquisitions. As of December 31, 2011, $78.2 million was available to be borrowed under our credit facility. Our balance sheet is strong and our pipeline of future acquisitions is full."
