During the past four years the Company purchased a stainless steel recycling operation, invested approximately $15 million in a shredder and extensive downstream non-ferrous recovery system, acquired property for expansion and established a self-service auto parts division, which now has over 1,200 cars in inventory on 15 acres of land. These assets, along with all of ISA's other long-term assets, currently secure approximately $7 million of outstanding debt.

Commenting on the Company's quarterly operating performance, Brian Donaghy, President and Chief Operating Officer of ISA, stated, "Once again our industry has faced a challenging quarter, yet we continue to reduce our debt and expand for the future. During the quarter we identified and implemented additional cost savings that are now in excess of $1 million annually. We will continue to look for more efficiencies. We feel optimistic that our continued cost cuts and disciplined approach to purchasing will position us well as better markets emerge."

Harry Kletter, founder and Chairman of ISA, stated, "I am very proud of the Company during these very competitive and volatile times in the industry. The management team has adjusted to the current environment and has become much more lean which will allow us to return to our growth once the industry gets back to a more normal mode. We have accumulated 55 acres of land, an alloys operation, three satellite locations, a retail self-service auto parts center and a fleet of trucks in our in-house logistics operation. I look forward to a bright future for ISA."

(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.
