Hallwood Group Reports Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2011

DALLAS, Nov. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hallwood Group Incorporated (NYSE Amex-HWG) today reported results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2011. For the 2011 third quarter, the Company had net income of $350,000, or $0.23 per share, compared to net income of $407,000, or $0.27 per share, in 2010 on revenue of $37.6 million and $36.8 million, respectively. For the nine months ended September 30, 2011, the net loss was $4.2 million, or $(2.74) per share, compared to net income of $10.5 million, or $6.85 per share, in 2010 on revenue of $101.1 million and $131.8 million, respectively.

Following is a comparison of results for the 2011 and 2010 periods:

Operating Income (Loss). The operating income for the 2011 and 2010 third quarters was $652,000 and $956,000, respectively. For the 2011 and 2010 nine month periods ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, operating income (loss) was $(6.2) million and $16.7 million, respectively.

While revenue increased 2% in the 2011 third quarter, the decrease in revenue of 23% in the 2011 nine month period was principally due to a decrease in sales of specialty fabric to U.S. military contractors as a result of decreases in orders from the military to Brookwood's customers, partially offset by increased sales in its other market segments. Sales of specialty fabric to U.S. military contractors of $21.8 million and $52.2 million in the 2011 third quarter and nine month periods, respectively, decreased from the 2010 sales of $23.3 million and $93.2 million, respectively. The military sales represented 57.9% and 51.6% of total sales for the 2011 third quarter and nine month periods, compared to 63.4% and 70.7% for the 2010 periods, respectively. Military sales have historically been cyclical in nature.

The results for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 include the earlier reported noncash accrual reserve of $7.5 million in the second quarter of 2011 for the Hallwood Energy litigation, in addition to the $3.2 million that was previously recorded in connection with the Equity Support Agreement, for a total reserve of $10.7 million at September 30, 2011. 

Other Income (Loss). Other income (loss) consists of interest expense and interest and other income. For the 2011 and 2010 third quarters, other income (loss) was $(20,000) and $(87,000), respectively. For the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, other income (loss) was $(39,000) and $(199,000), respectively.

Income Tax Expense (Benefit). For the 2011 third quarter, the income tax expense was $282,000, which included a current federal tax expense of $208,000, a noncash deferred federal tax benefit of $13,000, and a state tax expense of $87,000. For the 2010 third quarter, the income tax expense was $462,000, which included a noncash deferred federal tax expense of $174,000, a current federal tax expense of $152,000 and a state tax expense of $136,000.
