Strong backlog and increased manufacturing throughput contributed to EP&S revenue growth, offset by declines in the Mobile Solutions segment.Gross profit for the three months ended December 31, 2012 was $11.3 million, a decrease of $0.3 million from the comparative quarter in 2011. A slight decline in EP&S gross profit percentage results from lower productivity in the month of December as customer demand began to moderate. Mobile Solutions realized a 3% decrease in the gross profit percentage from the comparative quarter in 2011; however, the gross profit percentage increased by 4% in comparison to the three months ended September 30, 2012 as the Company realized the impact of certain cost cutting measures.EBITDA for the three months ended December 31, 2012 was $6.1 million, an increase of $0.7 million from the comparative quarter in 2011. EP&S EBITDA increased by $2.2 million which was offset by a $1.2 million decline in Mobile Solutions and an increase in Corporate costs of $0.3 million from the comparative quarter.Selected Quarterly Information($000 except per share amounts and percentages)20122011% ChangeRevenue44,32144,2510Gross profit11,27011,523(2) Energy Products and Services9,2538,00416 Mobile Solutions2,0173,519(43)Gross profit as % of revenue25%26%(1) Energy Products and Services31%33%(2) Mobile Solutions14%17%(3)Net earnings3,2553,809(15)Net earnings per common share - basic0.120.14(14)Net earnings per common share -diluted0.120.14(14)EBITDAS16,2745,59812EBITDAS1 per common share - basic0.240.2114EBITDAS1 per common share - diluted0.230.2110Total assets117,683107,44110Non-current liabilities11,0677,36350Total liabilities40,18737,07281EBITDAS is as an additional GAAP measurement. EBITDAS is defined as "earnings from continuing operations before impairment losses, interest, taxes, amortization and share-based compensation." EBITDAS is not considered an alternative to net earnings in measuring McCoy's performance. EBITDAS does not have a standardized meaning and is therefore not likely to be comparable with similar measures used by other issuers. However, McCoy calculates EBITDAS consistently from period to period.Annual Financial Highlights Record revenue for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $179.4 million, an increase of $25.6 million, or 17%, from 2011. Revenue growth continues to be driven by strong backlog and customer demand in the EP&S segment.Gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $47.5 million, an increase of $5.2 million, or 12%, from 2011. The increase in gross profit is a result of increased EP&S segment revenue, offset by a decline in revenue and gross margin in the Mobile Solutions segment. Mobile Solutions continues to experience a decline in profitability from lower market fundamentals, including a shift towards lower margin products.  However, backlog levels appear to have ended their decline and there are positive market indicators suggesting a recovery in the custom chassis market during the latter part of 2013.Net earnings for the year were $11.8 million ($0.44 per basic share), a 1% decrease when compared with 2011.Record EBITDAS1 for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $22.9 million, an increase of $1.3 million, or 6%, from $21.6 million in 2011.Strong results in the EP&S segment were offset by declining profitability in the Mobile Solutions segment and an increase in corporate costs. McCoy continues to invest in infrastructure, new product development, strategic hires and sales and marketing to support its long-term growth initiatives. The most significant of these investments are being made in the EP&S segment, where efforts were undertaken to increase manufacturing capacity, improve manufacturing processes and realize efficiencies to improve throughput and customer responsiveness. McCoy expects the full impact of increasing manufacturing capacity will be realized in 2013.As the Company executes on its growth strategy to expand and market its products internationally, sales and marketing and general and administrative expenses are expected to increase in the near term. Once a global management team and international infrastructure are put into place, McCoy anticipates these costs will stabilize and, as a percentage of revenue, decline to historic levels.Selected Annual Information($000 except per share amounts and percentages)20122011% ChangeTotal revenue179,372153,79717Gross profit47,45442,27712 Energy Products and Services39,87028,96238 Mobile Solutions7,58413,315(43)Gross profit as % of revenue26%27%(1) Energy Products and Services34%34%- Mobile Solutions12%19%(7)Net earnings11,77211,924(1)Net earnings per common share - basic0.440.45(2)Net earnings per common share -diluted0.440.44-EBITDAS122,86821,5756EBITDAS1 per common share - basic0.860.816EBITDAS1 per common share - diluted0.850.806Conference Call InformationMcCoy will host a conference call and webcast at 9:00 a.m. Mountain Time (11:00 a.m. Eastern Time) on March 15, 2013.
