DXP Enterprises, Inc. today announced net loss of $50.5 million for the fourth quarter ending December 31, 2009 with diluted loss per share ("EPS") of $3.84 compared to net income of $7.0 million and EPS of $0.51 for the fourth quarter of 2008.
The current quarter reported EPS included an impairment of goodwill and other intangibles of $53.0 million, a $13.8 million reduction in value of inventory acquired from Precision and $5.6 million of restructuring and other special fourth quarter charges, amounting to $72.4 million of charges. Absent these charges, adjusted EPS for the current quarter would have been $0.19 compared with the prior year quarter EPS of $0.51. Adjusted EPS for the current quarter would have been flat sequentially from the quarter ending September 30, 2009.
For the year ended December 31, 2009, DXP reported a net loss of $42.4 million, with diluted loss per share of $3.24 compared to net income of $25.9 million, with diluted earnings per share of $1.87 for 2008.
David R. Little, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer remarked, "In connection with the severe economic recession, we incurred an impairment of goodwill and other intangibles. In converting Precision to our IT system we discovered old and slow moving inventory. In addition to these non-cash events, we incurred restructuring and other one-time charges. With these one-time events behind us, the good news is we have amended our credit facility to give us more flexibility for growth. We believe our markets are improving and we are excited about the opportunity to acquire Quadna. Quadna is one of the leading suppliers of fluid handling systems in the U.S. and is recognized globally for its system application expertise. The Phoenix, Arizona-based company has nine branches in six states and Mexico and principally serves the mining, oil and gas, municipal power, food and beverage, semiconductor and chemical/pharmaceutical markets. Quadna is the third or fourth largest Goulds distributor and Goulds is DXP's largest vendor. We feel good about our future and we are excited about our new potential acquisition. Our growth strategies enable us to grow market share and our operational excellence program continues to reduce our cost to serve our customers."
Mac McConnell, Senior Vice President and CFO, added, "I am very pleased that DXP was able to reduce total long-term debt by $53.0 million during 2009. DXP also amended its credit facility to relax fixed charge coverage ratio and leverage ratio requirements and provide greater flexibility to complete acquisitions. As of December 31, 2009, $37.3 million was available to be borrowed under our credit facility."
