Sales for the third quarter increased 69% to $42.1 million from $24.9 million in the third quarter last year. Gross margin increased to 34% from 33% in the third quarter a year ago. Income from operations increased 72% to $10.6 million from $6.1 million in the comparable year-ago quarter. Net income increased 93% to $7.1 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, from $3.7 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, in the third quarter last year.

Explosive Metalworking

The Company's Explosive Metalworking segment reported third quarter sales of $40.3 million, up 72% from $23.5 million in the third quarter last year. Operating income increased 83% to $10.6 million from $5.8 million in the 2006 third quarter. Order backlog at the end of this year's third quarter was $77.1 million versus $68.8 million at December 31, 2006, and an all-time high $84.7 million at the end of the prior quarter.

AMK Welding

Third quarter sales at the Company's AMK Welding segment increased 32% to $1.8 million versus $1.3 million in the third quarter last year. Operating income was $325,000 versus $391,000 reported in the comparable year-ago quarter.

Management Commentary

"Strong demand from an array of end markets fueled another quarter of robust sales and earnings growth," said Yvon Cariou, president and chief executive officer. "The widespread push for new industrial processing capacity continues to drive significant investments in capital equipment, and based on the broad spectrum of domestic and international projects we are tracking, it appears this activity could continue for the foreseeable future. We are optimistic that many of these projects will incorporate DMC's explosion welded plates."

Cariou said the chemical processing, energy refining and aluminum smelting industries have been sectors from which there has been particularly strong order volume in recent months. "The new production capacity we have brought on line at our Mt. Braddock facility and the upgrades we are making at our European operations have enhanced our ability to effectively process the considerable order volume we continue to experience. In spite of continued tension in the supply chain for high-grade carbon steel, we are very encouraged by the volume of work our production teams are moving through our three explosion welding production centers."

Cariou added that activity at the Company's AMK Welding segment could increase significantly in the coming quarters, as one of the business' largest customers is expected to expand production of its ground-based turbine systems, on which AMK provides specialized welding services. "We believe our capacity expansion efforts at AMK have positioned us to effectively manage this anticipated increase in workload."

Rick Santa, chief financial officer, said DMC ended the third quarter with a strong balance sheet that included a cash position of $22.0 million, up from $10.4 million at the end of this year's second quarter. At the end of fiscal 2006, DMC had cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash of $20.9 million. DMC completed the third quarter with total current assets of $78.9 million, total assets of $106.4 million and working capital of $50.3 million.

Santa said management expects sales and earnings results for the 2007 fourth quarter will likely approximate those of the third quarter.

Nine-Month Results

Through nine months, sales increased 41% to $110.0 million compared with $77.8 million in the nine-month period of 2006. Gross margin was 34% versus 35% in the same period a year ago. Income from operations increased 32% to $26.9 million compared with $20.4 million in the comparable 2006 period. Net income through nine months was $17.7 million, or $1.44 per diluted share, versus net income of $14.2 million, or $1.16 per diluted share, in the same period last year. Net income in the 2006 nine-month period included a gain from discontinued operations of $1.4 million, or $0.11 per share, net of tax, attributable to the sale of a real estate purchase option.

The Explosive Metalworking segment reported nine-month sales of $105.3 million, an improvement of 42% versus sales of $74.3 million in the comparable period of 2006. Operating income increased 35% to $27.2 million compared with $20.2 million in the prior year's nine-month period.

Sales at AMK Welding for the nine-month period increased 37% to $4.7 million compared with sales of $3.4 million in the comparable year-ago period. Operating income was $606,000 compared with $621,000 in the prior-year period.
