Ampco-Pittsburgh Corporation Announces Results

PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ampco-Pittsburgh Corporation (NYS: AP) announces sales for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012 of $77,154,000 and $292,905,000, respectively, compared to sales of $86,514,000 and $344,816,000 for the same periods of 2011. Income from operations for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 was $5,500,000 and $6,994,000, respectively, and for the twelve months then ended was $16,293,000 and $36,474,000, respectively. For 2012, net income was $3,319,000 or $0.32 per common share for the fourth quarter and $8,355,000 or $0.81 per common share for the year. For 2011, net income was $1,754,000 or $0.17 per common share for the fourth quarter and $21,309,000 or $2.07 per common share for the year.

For the Forged and Cast Rolls segment, sales and operating income for the quarter and year were less than the same periods of the prior year and were adversely affected by weak global demand, competitive pricing pressures and lower production volumes. Sales for the Air and Liquid Processing segment for the quarter and year improved slightly against 2011; however, operating income was adversely affected by changes in product mix.

The matters discussed herein may contain forward-looking statements that are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from expectations. Some of these risks are set forth in the Corporation's Annual Report on Form 10-K as well as the Corporation's other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
