LB Foster Co. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2014

LB Foster Co. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014. Net sales were $111,414,000 against $129,321,000 a year ago. Income from continuing operations before income taxes was $5,321,000 against $7,444,000 year ago. Income from continuing operations was $3,649,000 or $0.35 diluted per share against $4,951,000 or $0.48 diluted per share a year ago. Net income was $3,649,000 or $0.35 diluted per share against $4,927,000 or $0.48 diluted per share a year ago. The sales decline was due to a 25.6% decrease in Construction segment sales, a 9.7% reduction in Rail segment sales, and a 5.2% drop in Tubular sales. The Construction segment sales reduction was due to a decrease in sales of Piling Products and, to a lesser extent, the concrete buildings, partially offset by an increase in fabricated bridge products. The Rail segment sales decline was due principally to a reduction in rail distribution sales, as well as Transit Products sales and, to a lesser extent, a reduction in concrete tie sales, partially offset by increased sales trend in by rail technologies division. The Tubular segment sales decrease was due principally to the volume-related declines in Coated Products division and, to a lesser extent, price reductions. Like so many other transportation and construction companies, the company experienced weather-related project and supply chain delays. Cash generated by continuing operating activities in the first quarter was $32.1 million compared to a $17.2 million use of cash in the prior-year quarter. First quarter 2014 capital expenditures were $3.5 million compared to $1 million last year. The company anticipated that overall market conditions will be favorable across all three of business segments in 2014 and expects to see continually increasing investment in transportation and energy infrastructure. During 2014, the company expects to see most businesses grow and will continue to work off the Honolulu project related backlog in Transit business. The favorable order patterns seen in the latter part of 2013 and the first quarter of 2014 for Piling and Coated Products are expected to continue as the construction and gas pipeline markets grow. The net result should be a positive year for sales growth. The company expects 2014 sales to be in the range of $620 million to $630 million. Pretax income is expected to range between $43 million and $47 million and anticipates diluted EPS to be between $2.80 and $3.00. As previously mentioned, the company is planning to increase capital spending in 2014 to a range of $18.0 million to $22.0 million. This is a substantial increase over the normal rate of annual spending as a result of several growth programs that are launching simultaneously. This does not represent a new level of ongoing annual spending. The company anticipates the increased capital spending in 2014 will be offset by improved cash flow from operating activities as demonstrated by first quarter success derived from programs focused on working capital improvement.
