For the fourth quarter, the company's net sales were $161,149,000 compared with $156,548,000 a year ago. The improvement in Tubular sales was due to coatings business while the Rail sales increase was principally driven by Rail Technologies, Rail Distribution and Concrete Ties, partially offset by a decline in Transit sales.
