Revenue for 2012 was $194.2 million compared with $277.2 million in 2011. Net loss for 2012 was $(6.6) million, or $(0.95) per diluted share, which included a non-cash impairment charge to goodwill of $3.9 million, net of income tax, compared with net loss of $(3.9) million, or $(0.56) per diluted share for 2011.

The company continues to manage its way through a challenging market environment.

  • ISA's shredder has benefitted from higher quality product inflow as a result of scrap flows from the Pick.Pull.Save operation, which is adjacent to the shredder.
  • The company has used excess cash to reduce its term debt ahead of schedule.

ISA was recently recognized by the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries ("ISRI"), the scrap industry's leading trade group, as a leader in the safe and efficient operation of its fleet of equipment.

(1) Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by the Company as net income before interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization and impairment charges. The Company uses Adjusted 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 Adjusted 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 Adjusted EBITDA provides a meaningful measure of performance exclusive of these unique items.
