BOULDER, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 06/07/10 -- Dynamic Materials Corporation (DMC) (NASDAQ: BOOM), the world's leading provider of explosion-welded clad metal plates and a growing provider of specialized oilfield products to the international oil and gas industry, today reported it has completed its previously announced acquisition of Austin Explosives Company. DMC paid approximately $3.7 million in cash and issued 222,445 shares of DMC common stock in a transaction that was structured as an asset purchase.

Texas-based Austin Explosives, which employs a staff of approximately 25, previously served as the exclusive U.S. distributor for DMC's Oilfield Products segment. Austin Explosives recorded 2009 sales of approximately $10.7 million.

DMC also has purchased the outstanding interest in two Russian joint ventures that were previously majority-owned by the Company's Oilfield Products business. DMC paid a combined US$2.0 million for the respective 45% and 36% outstanding stakes in the Siberia- and Moscow-based businesses, which collectively perform both manufacturing and distribution services. The combined businesses recorded total sales of approximately US$6.5 million during fiscal 2009.

"These transactions come on the heels of our recent acquisition of Alberta-based LRI Oil Tools, and together they illustrate our commitment to the expansion of our Oilfield Products business," said Yvon Cariou, DMC's president and CEO. "Our growing international network of manufacturing and distribution facilities provides us with an important competitive advantage, and positions our Oilfield Products segment to capitalize on what we believe will be increasing long-term demand from the oil and gas industry."
