LB Foster Mulls Acquisitions

LB Foster Co. (NasdaqGS:FSTR) is looking for acquisitions. Robert Bauer, President and Chief Executive Officer of LB Foster Co. said, "We have a significant credit facility in the Company, which we think could easily fund a number of acquisitions that would be much more sizable than the ones we have been doing. I would say it doesn't have to be accretive. Like everybody, we certainly like them that way, but if we find something that is not, but it really makes a great deal of sense and it's the right kind of business to add to our portfolio, we would certainly consider that."
