EBITDA represents earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization.

Mr. John G. Reid, President and CEO, commented, “The global pandemic created a new working environment causing us to adapt our operations as an essential industry and develop new health and safety protocols for our employees and other stakeholders. I want to commend the teams in our service center and distribution operations for their tremendous efforts in successfully navigating 2020 as we emerged a stronger company. Our metals service centers and distribution operations experienced improving demand and multiple price increases in the fourth quarter which provides a springboard going into 2021.”

Mr. Reid continued, “Oil prices and rig counts continued to modestly improve in the 2020 fourth quarter. Steel price increases have recently been reflected in rising energy product prices as the supply chain continues to rebalance. During the fourth quarter we continued our strategy to redeploy capital from our OCTG and line pipe energy operations and 2021 offers further opportunities to advance this initiative.”
