KOKOMO, Ind., Nov. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Haynes International, Inc. (Nasdaq:HAYN), a leading developer, manufacturer and marketer of technologically advanced high-performance alloys (the "Company"), reported today that, based on currently available information, revenue for the Company's fourth fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2013 is expected to be approximately $115 million and earnings for that period are expected to be in the range of $0.30 to $0.32 per share. The Company expects that its cash balance at September 30, 2013 will increase from the end of its third fiscal quarter to approximately $68 million as the Company adjusts its inventory levels and production schedules to current market conditions. "Market conditions remain challenging as major customers continue to clear out the supply chain," said Mark Comerford, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are managing through this difficult period by controlling costs, adjusting our production schedules and reducing inventory. We continue to believe in the long-term growth potential of the aerospace, land-based gas turbine and chemical processing markets, and we are continuing to implement our capital spending projects in line with our plans to meet the long-term growth requirements of those target markets. In the short term, we do not expect an increase in demand in the first quarter of fiscal 2014, and we expect to take advantage of this period of lower demand to perform maintenance at our manufacturing facilities over the holidays. As a result, we expect the first quarter of fiscal 2014's results to be below results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013."
