Compx International Inc : COMPX REPORTS FOURTH QUARTER 2012 RESULTS DALLAS, TEXAS ... March 6, 2013 ... CompX International Inc. (NYSE MKT: CIX) announced today sales relating to continuing operations of $19.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $18.7 million in the same period of 2011. Operating income relating to continuing operations was nil in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $1.4 million in the same period in 2011. Income from continuing operations after tax was $600,000 for each of the fourth quarters of 2012 and 2011, or $0.05 per diluted share. Net sales relating to continuing operations for the year ended December 31, 2012 were $83.2 million compared to $79.8 million in the previous year. Operating income relating to continuing operations was $5.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to $6.4 million for 2011. Income from continuing operations after tax was $3.5 million each of the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, or $0.28 per diluted share. Net sales relating to continuing operations increased for both the fourth quarter and full year of 2012 primarily due to general growth in customer demand across most of our markets. Operating income decreased for the fourth quarter of 2012 primarily due to the net effects of: *A loss on the disposal of assets held for sale in 2012 of approximately $757,000; *Higher self-insured medical costs for the quarter of approximately $302,000; *An increase in administrative support costs related to the higher sales and higher carrying costs associated with the assets held for sale; and *The positive impact of an increase in 2012 sales noted above. The decrease in operating income for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to the same period in 2011 is primarily due to the net effects of: *Higher self-insured medical costs for the year of approximately $925,000; *An increase in administrative support costs related to the higher sales and higher carrying costs associated with the assets held for sale; and *The positive impact of an increase in 2012 sales noted above. On December 28, 2012, we completed the sale of our Furniture Components segment for proceeds (net of expenses) of approximately $58.0 million in cash. We recognized a pre-tax gain of approximately $29.6 million on the disposal of these operations ($27.6 million, or $2.23 per diluted share, net of income taxes of approximately $1.9 million). Discontinued operations also include net-of-tax income from the operations of the disposed unit of $500,000 and $400,000 for 2012 and 2011 fourth quarters, respectively, and $3.8 million and $4.2 million for the full year 2012 and 2011, respectively. We have reclassified our Summary Consolidated Statements of Income to reflect the disposed business as discontinued operations for all periods presented. "We are pleased with our overall sales growth of 4% for the full year, as we continue to achieve a growth rate above the overall improvement in the U.S. economy. At the operating income level, the comparison of our full year results to the prior year was impacted by $925,000 in higher self-insured medical costs, which is a function of 2011 being exceptionally low with 2012 being more in line with our historical average," commented David A. Bowers, President & CEO. "A significant accomplishment this year was completing the sale of our Furniture Components segment. We believe the disposal of our Furniture Components segment will enable us to focus more effort on continuing to develop our Security Products and Marine businesses where we believe there is greater opportunity for higher returns with less income volatility, especially volatility relating to commodity raw materials. Looking forward to 2013, we do not expect a significant change in the overall economic environment, but we expect to continue to grow our top and bottom lines through introduction of new product features as well as expansion into additional markets as we vigilantly manage our costs." CompX is a leading manufacturer of security products and recreational marine components. It operates from four locations in the U.S. and employs approximately 500 people.
