SPARTANBURG, S.C., Sept. 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synalloy Corporation (Nasdaq:SYNL) today announced that it has upsized its previously announced underwritten public offering from 1,500,000 to 2,000,000 shares of its common stock and priced the offering at a price of $15.75 per share. The underwriters have a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 300,000 shares of common stock from Synalloy at the public offering price (less the underwriting discount) to cover over-allotments, if any. Net proceeds to Synalloy from the sale of 2,000,000 shares, after underwriting discounts and estimated expenses, are expected to be approximately $29.5 million. We intend to use the net proceeds from the offering to invest approximately $3.5 million in new equipment for our CRI Tolling facility, to invest approximately $2.0 million in new equipment for our fabrication facilities, and to pay down the senior indebtedness outstanding under a line of credit that we have through a loan agreement. The offering is expected to close on September 30, 2013, subject to customary closing conditions. Sterne, Agee & Leach, Inc. and BB&T Capital Markets are acting as joint book-running managers for the offering.
