(NYSE: B), an international aerospace and industrial manufacturer and service provider, today reported financial results for the first quarter of 2013. Net sales from continuing operations increased 18% to $263.5 million from $222.8 million in the first quarter of 2012, driven by the sales contribution of the Synventive business. Income from continuing operations for the first quarter was down 12% to $15.4 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, from $17.6 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, a year ago. Income from continuing operations in the current quarter included $10.5 million pre-tax, or $0.12 per diluted share, of non-recurring CEO transition costs associated with the modification of outstanding equity awards granted to the Company’s former President & CEO. Excluding this item, adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations was $0.40 for the first quarter of 2013, up 25% from last year. A table reconciling the non-GAAP adjusted results presented in this release to our GAAP results is included at the end of this press release. “Barnes Group delivered a solid first quarter of performance to begin the year,” said Patrick J. Dempsey, President and Chief Executive Officer of Barnes Group Inc. “We’ve continued to drive margin expansion through the successful execution of our corporate strategy to deliver sustainable profitable growth.” Dempsey continued, “As we realign into two business segments, we are excited about the intensified focus on our manufacturing and engineering capabilities and the opportunity to accelerate our pipeline of growth initiatives and new product introductions.

An increase in aerospace original equipment manufacturing (“OEM”) sales was largely offset by declines in aftermarket repair and overhaul and spare parts sales. *Operating profit of $10.3 million for the first quarter of 2013 was down 18% from the prior year period of $12.7 million. The decrease was driven by non-recurring CEO transition costs of $3.9 million allocated to the segment. The profit benefit of higher sales in the OEM business was partially offset by the profit detriment of lower sales in the aftermarket repair and overhaul and spare parts businesses. Excluding the CEO transition costs, adjusted operating margin in the quarter was 14.5%, up 150 bps. Industrial *First quarter 2013 sales were $165.5 million, up 32% from $125.5 million in the same period last year. The increase was driven by Synventive’s sales contribution in the current quarter. Organic sales, which benefited from favorable pricing, increased by 1%. Foreign exchange was an unfavorable 1%. *Operating profit of $14.6 million for the first quarter of 2013 increased $2.6 million from last year driven by the profit contribution of the Synventive business, productivity improvements, and favorable pricing. These benefits were partially offset by non-recurring CEO transition costs of $6.6 million allocated to the segment. Excluding the CEO transition costs, adjusted operating margin in the quarter was 12.8%, up 330 bps. Additional Information *Interest expense increased $2.0 million from 2012, to $4.4 million, primarily as a result of higher borrowings which were used to fund the acquisition of Synventive. *The Company’s effective tax rate from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2013 was 21.4% compared with 17.8% in the first quarter of 2012 and 13.5% for full year 2012. The increase in the first quarter 2013 effective tax rate versus the full year 2012 rate was mainly due to several discrete foreign tax related items in 2012, an increase in the Company’s effective tax rate in Sweden, and a projected mix of earnings attributable to higher-taxing jurisdictions. Updated 2013 Outlook Barnes Group now expects 2013 revenue from continuing operations to grow 17% to 20% from 2012. GAAP Earnings per diluted share from continuing operations are anticipated to be in the range of $1.71 to $1.86. This guidance includes the impacts from the sale of Barnes Distribution North America which closed on April 22, 2013, and the Company’s previously announced CEOtransition. Excluding $10.5 million pre-tax, or $0.12 per share, in non-recurring costs associated with the Company’s CEO transition, adjusted operating margins are expected to be approximately 14%. Adjusted earnings per diluted share are anticipated to be in the range of $1.83 to $1.98, up 20% to 30% from 2012’s adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $1.52. On April 16, 2013, the U.S. Tax Court rendered an unfavorable decision against the Company, rejecting the Company’s objections to a $16.5 million tax adjustment arising out of an IRS audit for the tax years 2000 through 2002 and imposing penalties. The Company is currently evaluating its options, including appealing the decision. The Company’s guidance does not include any impact on expected earnings or cash flows as a result of the court’s decision. The Company expects cash flows to be negatively impacted by approximately $13 million in the third quarter of 2013 as a result of the decision. In addition, in the second quarter of 2013, following the Company’s evaluation, the Company could record an income tax charge of up to approximately $20 million and a reduction in its deferred tax assets to reflect the utilization of a portion of the Company’s net operating loss carryforwards.

Management believes that these adjustments provide the Company and its investors with an indication of our baseline performance excluding items that are not considered to be reflective of our ongoing results. Management does not intend results excluding the adjustments to represent results as defined by GAAP, and the reader should not consider it as an alternative measurement calculated in accordance with GAAP, or as an indicator of the Company's performance. Accordingly, the measurements have limitations depending on their use. Contact: Barnes Group Inc. William Pitts Director, Investor Relations 860-583-7070
