Adjusted Operating Income Increases 8 Percent

Cost Savings plus Strong Industrial and Rail Segment Results Offset Soft End Markets in Metals and Commercial Construction and Currency Translation Headwinds

CAMP HILL, Pa., Nov. 1, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Diversified global industrial company Harsco Corporation (NYSE:HSC) today reported third quarter 2012 U.S. GAAP ("GAAP") diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $0.32, compared with $0.40 in the third quarter of 2011. Excluding special items, adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $0.39 in the third quarter of 2012. There were no special items in the prior-year quarter. (See Table 1 for a description of the special items and a reconciliation of GAAP and adjusted results).

CEO Comment

"Our aggressive cost actions during the past year enabled us to increase operating profit in the quarter and deliver results that exceeded our guidance," said Harsco President and CEO Patrick Decker. "Our team has taken meaningful steps to demonstrate our ability to manage through difficult circumstances and deliver on our commitments.

"As we move forward, we remain focused on our core initiatives to drive greater and sustainable value creation. We will maintain a rigorous focus on cost management and operational efficiency."

Consolidated Third Quarter Operating Results

Total revenues were $757 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared with $856 million the prior-year quarter. During the past year the Company has taken several actions to increase returns and invest capital more effectively. Two of these include exiting unattractive contracts in Metals & Minerals and ceasing operations in certain countries in Infrastructure, which together accounted for $32 million of the year-over-year revenue decline. Foreign currency translation negatively impacted revenues by $41 million in the quarter. The revenue performance also reflects lower volume due to soft end markets in metals and commercial construction. That lower volume was partially offset by mid-single digit growth in the Rail and the Industrial businesses.

GAAP operating income from continuing operations was $50 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared with $51 million in the prior-year quarter. Foreign currency translation negatively impacted operating income by $2 million in the quarter. Excluding special items, adjusted operating income from continuing operations increased 8 percent to $55 million. Adjusted operating income margin increased 130 basis points to 7.2 percent in the quarter. This performance primarily reflects successful execution of the Company's cost reduction strategies and strong results in Industrial and Rail.

Net interest expense declined 12 percent to $10 million in the third quarter of 2012 from $12 million in the prior-year quarter. This decrease was primarily due to foreign currency translation, as well as lower carrying costs on the Company's revolving credit facility.

Income tax expense increased to $14 million in the third quarter of 2012 from $7 million in the third quarter of 2011. The prior-year tax expense was unusually low and was primarily due to one-time benefits.

Consolidated Nine Month Results

GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $0.13 in the first nine months of 2012, compared with $1.02 in the first nine months of 2011. Excluding special items, adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $0.89 in the first nine months of 2012, compared with $0.95 in the prior-year period, as noted above in Table 1.

Total revenues were $2.3 billion in the first nine months of 2012, compared with $2.5 billion in the prior-year period. The Company's actions to increase returns and invest capital more effectively by exiting unattractive contracts in Metals & Minerals and ceasing operations in certain countries in Infrastructure accounted for $53 million and $46 million, respectively, of the year-over-year revenue decline. Foreign currency translation negatively impacted revenues by $115 million in the first nine months of 2012. The revenue performance also reflects lower volumes due to soft end markets in metals and commercial construction. That lower volume was partially offset by 20 percent growth in Industrial and 5 percent growth in Rail.

GAAP operating income from continuing operations was $72 million in the first nine months of 2012, compared with $144 million in the prior-year period. Foreign currency translation negatively impacted operating income by $8 million in the first nine months of 2012. Excluding special items, adjusted operating income from continuing operations was $137 million in the first nine months of 2012, compared with $136 million in the prior-year period. Adjusted operating income margin increased 60 basis points to 6.0 percent in the first nine months of 2012. This performance primarily reflects the Company's successful execution of its cost reduction strategies and strong results in the Industrial group.

Net interest expense decreased to $33 million in the first nine months of 2012 from $35 million in the comparable period of 2011, primarily due to foreign currency translation as well as lower carrying costs on the Company's revolving credit facility.

Income tax expense increased to $28 million in the first nine months of 2012 from $25 million in the first nine months of 2011, primarily due to losses from operations in certain jurisdictions where tax benefits could not be recognized.

Third Quarter Business Review

Harsco Metals & Minerals

Revenues were $345 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared with $400 million in the prior-year quarter. Management's decision to exit certain unattractive contracts accounted for $16 million of the year-over-year revenue decline. Foreign currency translation negatively impacted revenues by $27 million in the quarter. The revenue performance also reflects lower volumes due to the softness in the global metals industry. Overall customer steel production declined approximately 3 percent in the quarter compared with the prior-year quarter.

Excluding $0.7 million in restructuring charges related to the Company's previously announced actions, Metals & Minerals' adjusted operating income was $27 million in the third quarter of 2012. Operating income was $31 million in the prior-year quarter. Adjusted operating margin increased 20 basis points to 7.9 percent in the quarter. This performance reflects the Company's successful execution of its cost reduction strategies, which more than offset the negative impact of foreign currency translation and lower steel production.

Harsco Infrastructure

Revenues were $229 million in the third quarter of 2012 compared with $282 million in the prior-year quarter. As part of the previously announced restructuring plan, the Company's decision to cease operations in certain countries reduced revenues by $16 million in the quarter. Foreign currency translation negatively impacted sales by $14 million in the quarter. The sales performance also reflects softness in the global commercial construction markets and lower industrial maintenance services activity in North America and Europe.

Excluding $8 million in restructuring charges related to the Company's previously announced actions and a $4 million pre-tax non-cash gain associated with the closure of certain operations in Europe, Infrastructure's adjusted operating loss was $2.5 million in the third quarter, compared with an operating loss of $3.3 million in the prior-year quarter. This performance reflects the Company's successful execution of its cost reduction strategies, which partially offset the revenue decline and negative impact of foreign currency translation.

Harsco Rail

Revenues grew 5 percent to $91 million in the third quarter of 2012 from $87 million in the prior-year quarter. Operating income increased 20 percent to $14 million in the quarter from $12 million in the prior-year quarter. Operating margin increased 190 basis points to 15.2 percent in the quarter.

Rail's performance was primarily due to the timing and mix of equipment deliveries, particularly in China as part of its large order with the Ministry of Railways.

Harsco Industrial

Revenues increased 7 percent to $91 million in the third quarter of 2012 from $86 million in the prior-year quarter. Operating income increased 22 percent to $17 million from $14 million in the prior-year quarter. Operating margin increased 220 basis points to 18.3 percent in the quarter.

Industrial's third quarter performance primarily reflects a favorable mix for air-cooled heat exchangers and strong demand in the grating business, partially offset by softer demand for industrial boilers.

Fourth Quarter Outlook

Metals & Minerals revenues and earnings in the fourth quarter of 2012 are expected to be lower relative to the fourth quarter of 2011 and the third quarter of 2012. The Company anticipates further reduction of steel production at certain customers driven by slower global economic activity.

Infrastructure results are expected to reflect the continued impact from soft end markets mitigated by the cost saving benefits from the Company's prior restructuring actions. This is expected to result in fourth quarter results that will be similar to the third quarter of 2012 excluding restructuring charges.

The Rail business has a large number of equipment deliveries scheduled for customer acceptance late in the quarter. This is expected to result in a strong fourth quarter performance compared with the prior-year quarter.

The Industrial business expects results in the fourth quarter of 2012 to be lower than the fourth quarter of 2011 and the third quarter of 2012. This outlook reflects softness in the order trends over the past few months for industrial boilers, as well as caution on the part of customers in the North America natural gas market.

The Company expects its tax rate to approximate 29 percent in the fourth quarter, excluding special items.

Based on these aforementioned factors, the Company expects diluted earnings per share from continuing operations to range from $0.28 to $0.33 in the fourth quarter, excluding special items.

Liquidity, Capital Resources and Other Matters

Net cash provided by operating activities in the first nine months of 2012 was $111 million, compared with $190 million in the prior-year period. Cash from operations included $69 million and $17 million, respectively, of cash payments for restructuring actions in the first nine months of 2012 and 2011. Excluding restructuring payments, cash from operations was $181 million and $207 million, respectively, in the first nine months of 2012 and 2011. Capital expenditures in the first nine months of 2012 were $173 million, compared with $241 million for the same period in 2011.

At September 30, 2012, the Company's total debt was $969 million, compared with $909 million at December 31, 2011. The debt-to-capital ratio at September 30, 2012 was 44.7 percent, compared with 42.7 percent at December 31, 2011. The net debt-to-capital ratio at September 30, 2012 was 41.6 percent, up from 39.2 percent at December 31, 2011.

(a) The Company's management believes operating income excluding special items is useful to investors because it provides an overall understanding of the Company's historical financial performance and future prospects. Exclusion of special items permits evaluation and comparison of results for the Company's core business operations, and it is on this basis that management internally assesses the Company's performance.
(b) Country exit gains (or losses) are non-cash items recognized when the Company has substantially liquidated its investment in a foreign entity. As part of the 2011/2012 Restructuring Program, Harsco Infrastructure exited several countries and recognized gains.
(c) Reduction of estimated costs relates to the first phase of Harsco Rail's large order in China with the Ministry of Railways.
