Webco Industries, Inc. Reports Fiscal 2013 Fourth Quarter Results

SAND SPRINGS, Okla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Webco Industries, Inc. (OTC: WEBC) today reported results for its fiscal 2013 fourth quarter and year ended July 31, 2013.

For its fiscal 2013 fourth quarter, the Company reported net income of $1.7 million, or $2.15 per diluted share, compared to net income of $3.2 million, or $4.09 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter in fiscal 2012. Net sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 were $100.4 million, a 25.9 percent decrease from the $135.5 million of sales in last year's fourth quarter. The current quarter results include a $2.0 million non-cash gain related to the Company's interest swap contract, whereas the prior year fourth quarter includes a $1.6 million non-cash loss related to the interest swap contract.


For fiscal year 2013, the Company generated net income of $5.8 million, or $7.28 per diluted share, compared to net income of $14.6 million, or $18.67 per diluted share, for fiscal year 2012. Net sales for the current fiscal year amounted to $413.7 million, a 21.4 percent reduction from the $526.8 million in sales for fiscal year 2012. Results for the current year include a $1.6 million non-cash gain related to the interest swap contract, whereas the prior fiscal year contained a $5.4 million non-cash loss on the contract.

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 was $6.9 million, or 6.9 percent of net sales, compared to $13.3 million, or 9.8 percent of net sales, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. Gross profit for fiscal year 2013 was $33.3 million, or 8.1 percent of net sales, compared to $55.1 million, or 10.5 percent of net sales, in fiscal year 2012.

Dana S. Weber, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The greatest factors affecting both the quarterly and year comparisons are lower volume, less favorable product mix and weak spot pricing. We are having success adding incremental business, but the industrial economy in general is challenging and competitive. We hope for the return of more favorable business conditions into calendar year 2014. We continue to invest in a platform for long-term organic growth that is consistent with our niche strategy."

Selling, general and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 decreased to $5.2 million from $6.0 million in the fourth quarter of the prior year. SG&A costs in fiscal year 2013 were $22.1 million, down slightly from $23.1 million reported for fiscal year 2012.

Interest expense was $1.0 million in fiscal 2013's fourth quarter and $0.7 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. For fiscal year 2013 and 2012, respectively, interest expense amounted to $3.9 million and $3.6 million. The Company is party to an arrangement that swaps the variable interest rate for $75 million of the Company's debt to a fixed rate through December 2017. The Company records the interest swap contract at fair value and non-cash changes in value are reported in Gains or Losses on Interest Contracts. Monthly swap settlements, if any, are included in interest expense.

Capital expenditures incurred amounted to $0.8 million and $8.0 million, respectively, for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended July 31, 2013. Capital spending for fiscal year 2014 is expected to be in the range of $7 to $8 million.
