VANCOUVER, BC – November 30, 2010 – IBC Advanced Alloys Corp. (TSX.V:IB) (“IBC” or the “Company”) today reported its financial results for the three-month period ending September 30, 2010. All currency amounts are expressed in US dollars. For the three-month period ended September 30, 2010, the Company reported revenues of $5.66 million, up 119% from the same period in 2009. The net loss for the period was $673,000, down 16% from the first quarter loss in the comparative period. The loss before income taxes and amortization (“EBITDA”) for the quarter was $92,000 compared to a loss of $340,000 in 2009.
The increase in revenues and improved financial performance demonstrate a strong sustained recovery in demand for the Company’s advanced alloy products. The Company continues to invest in growth through the expansion of its manufacturing operations and several business development initiatives. Ongoing investments in customer priorities, market development and production efficiencies helped IBC achieve its fourth consecutive quarter of revenue growth.
During the previous fiscal year the Company stepped up its reorganization and consolidation efforts to establish the copper alloys division and the beryllium-aluminum alloys division. The Company has also focused on centralizing key functions which has strengthened and streamlined its manufacturing and distribution capabilities. These initiatives underpin IBC’s core strategy of building a global vertically integrated advanced alloys Company to better serve the growing worldwide market and to take advantage of complementary opportunities in the increasingly important advanced alloys and rare metals market.
“IBC is off to a strong start in fiscal 2011, turning in its best first quarter so far, with record first-quarter revenue, and other positive improvements, with all key performance indicators,” said Anthony Dutton, President & CEO of IBC Advanced Alloys Corp. “This quarter IBC saw increasing confidence from its customer base as general economic conditions improved and the Company is focused on continued investments in growth, both domestically and internationally.”
