SL Industries Announces 2012 Third Quarter Results

MT. LAUREL, N.J., Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SL INDUSTRIES, INC. (NYSE AMEX: SLI); ("SLI" or the "Company")  operating results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012 are summarized in the following paragraphs. Please read the Company's Form 10-Q, which can be found at www.slindustries.com, for a full discussion of the operating results.

Net sales from continuing operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, were $50.9 million, down 2% compared with net sales from continuing operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 of $52.1 million.

Income from continuing operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 was $2.9 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, compared to income from continuing operations of $2.5 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. Included in income from continuing operations during the third quarter of 2012 was $0.9 million of restructuring costs, which was partially offset by a $0.3 million non-cash unrealized gain on foreign exchange contracts. Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 was $2.4 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, compared to net income of $2.3 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 included a net loss from discontinued operations of $0.5 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared to a net loss from discontinued operations of $0.3 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the third quarter 2011. The net losses from discontinued operations for the third quarter of 2012 and 2011 primarily related to after tax charges for environmental remediation and legal expenses related to environmental remediation.

The Company generated Adjusted EBITDA of $5.3 million for the third quarter of 2012, as compared to $4.5 million for the same period in 2011, an increase of $0.8 million, or 18%.  See "Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measurements" below for the definition of Adjusted EBITDA.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, net sales from continuing operations were $149.1 million, down 7% compared with net sales from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 of $161.0 million.

For the first nine months of 2012, net income from continuing operations was $5.7 million, or $1.30 per diluted share, compared to net income from continuing operations of $9.8 million, or $2.14 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

Net income for the first nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $4.8 million, or $1.10 per diluted share, compared to net income of $9.9 million, or $2.17 per diluted share, for the first nine months ended September 30, 2011.  Net income for the first nine months ended September 30, 2012 included a net loss from discontinued operations of $0.9 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared to net income from discontinued operations of $0.1 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the first nine months ended September 30, 2011. The net loss from discontinued operations for the first nine months of 2012 primarily related to after tax charges for environmental remediation and legal expenses. Net income from discontinued operations for the first nine months ended September 30, 2011 was generated by a $0.8 million non-cash gain from a tax settlement associated with the company's German subsidiary, which was sold in January 2003, partially off-set by losses related to environmental remediation, net of tax.

The Company generated Adjusted EBITDA of $13.3 million for the nine months ended 2012, as compared to $16.8 million for the same period in 2011, a decrease of $3.5 million, or 21%.  See "Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measurements" below for the definition of Adjusted EBITDA.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measurements

The financial data contained in this press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), including "EBITDA" and "Adjusted EBITDA".  The Company is presenting EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA because it believes that it provides useful information to investors about SLI, its business and its financial condition. The Company defines EBITDA as net income from continuing operations before the effects of interest income, interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and the amortization of deferred financing costs. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA before the effects of certain items, including China investigation costs, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, direct acquisition costs, unrealized loss on foreign exchange contracts, and fire related gains. The Company believes EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are useful to investors because they are key measures used by the Company's Board of Directors and management to evaluate its business, including internal management reporting, budgeting and forecasting processes, in comparing operating results across the business, as an internal profitability measure, as a component in evaluating the ability and the desirability of making capital expenditures and significant acquisitions, and as an element in determining executive compensation.

However, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("GAAP"), and the items excluded from EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance. Therefore, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a substitute for net income (loss) or cash flows from operating, investing, or financing activities. Because EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are calculated before recurring cash items, including interest income, interest expense, and income taxes, and is not adjusted for capital expenditures or other recurring cash requirements of the business, it should not be considered as a measure of discretionary cash available to invest in the growth of the business. There are a number of material limitations to the use of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as an analytical tool, including the following:

  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the Company's interest income and interest expense;
  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the Company's income tax expense or the cash requirements to pay its income taxes;
  • Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash expenses in the period recorded, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the cash requirements for such replacement; and
  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not include discontinued operations.

The Company compensates for these limitations by relying primarily on its GAAP financial measures and by using EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA only as supplemental information. The Company believes that consideration of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, together with a careful review of its GAAP financial measures, is the most informed method of analyzing SLI.

The Company reconciles EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net income from continuing operations, and that reconciliation is set forth below.  Because EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not a measurement determined in accordance with GAAP and is susceptible to varying calculations, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, as presented, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Revenues and expenses are measured in accordance with the policies and procedures described in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.
