Second Quarter 2016 Results
Net earnings for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 increased to $7.2 million, or $0.38 per share from $2.5 million, or $0.14 per share in the same period a year ago. The second quarter results for the prior year include a net gain from insurance proceeds and restructuring charges, which, in the aggregate, increased pre-tax earnings by $1.3 million and net earnings per share by $0.04.

Insteel's second-quarter results were favorably impacted by widening spreads between selling prices and raw material costs together with higher shipments and lower conversion costs relative to the prior year quarter.

Net sales increased 5.5% to $107.4 million from $101.8 million in the prior year quarter benefiting from the milder winter weather in many regions of the country. Shipments increased 20.1% from the prior year quarter while average selling prices decreased 12.1%. On a sequential basis, shipments increased 23.1% from the first quarter of fiscal 2016 while average selling prices decreased 5.6%.

Operating activities provided $11.4 million of cash compared with $7.7 million in the prior year quarter primarily due to the increase in earnings. Net working capital provided $0.4 million of cash compared with $2.7 million in the prior year quarter. Capital expenditures increased to $3.4 million from $1.1 million in the prior year quarter.

Six Month 2016 Results
Net earnings for the first six months of fiscal 2016 increased to $13.9 million, or $0.73 per diluted share from $6.7 million, or $0.36 per share in the same period a year ago. The six-month results for the prior year include a net gain from insurance proceeds and restructuring charges, which, in the aggregate, increased pre-tax earnings by $1.3 million and net earnings per share by $0.04.

Net sales decreased 5.9% to $199.8 million from $212.4 million in the prior year period, reflecting a 5.1% increase in shipments offset by a 10.5% decrease in average selling prices.

Operating activities provided $23.7 million of cash while using $1.8 million in the prior year period primarily due to the relative changes in net working capital and the increase in earnings. Net working capital provided $1.1 million of cash while using $15.3 million in the prior year period. Capital expenditures were $4.3 million compared with $4.6 million in the prior year period and are expected to increase to approximately $20.0 million for fiscal 2016 largely due to outlays related to the expansion of the Houston prestressed concrete strand ("PC strand") facility. Insteel paid a special cash dividend during the quarter totaling $18.6 million, or $1.00 per share.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity
Insteel ended the quarter debt-free with $36.4 million of cash and cash equivalents, and no borrowings outstanding on its $100.0 million revolving credit facility.

Outlook
"Looking ahead to the second half of the fiscal year, we should benefit from the continuation of the favorable trends in our nonresidential construction end-markets together with the usual seasonal upturn in demand," commented H.O. Woltz III, Insteel's president and CEO. "As we move further into the year, we also expect the federal funding provided for under the recently passed FAST Act will begin to have a more pronounced impact on the infrastructure-related portion of our business.

"We are pleased with the considerable progress that was made during the quarter on the upgrading and expansion of our Houston PC strand facility. The first phase of the project remains on track to be completed by the end of the first fiscal quarter of 2017 and is expected to reduce our annual operating costs by approximately $5 million. We are also moving forward on the addition of a third production line at the facility that is anticipated to start up during fiscal 2017 following the successful completion of the first phase of the project."  

Conference Call
Insteel will hold a conference call at 10:00 a.m. ET today to discuss its second quarter financial results. A live webcast of this call can be accessed on Insteel's website at http://investor.insteel.com/events.cfm and will be archived for replay until the next quarterly conference call.
