    Mistras Group, Inc. Delivers Strong Revenue and Earnings Growth as FY 2011 Revenue Increases 24%, Adjusted EBITDA Up 33%

    Fourth Quarter Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA* Increases 28%; Provides Guidance of Continuing Double Digit Growth for FY 2012



    Mistras Group, Inc. (NYSE:MG), a leading "one source" global provider of technology-enabled asset protection solutions, reported record financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended May 31, 2011. Revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 was $102.1 million, an increase of 28%, over the $79.8 million reported in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010.

    Adjusted EBITDA increased 28% to $17.5 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 versus $13.7 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010. Net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 grew by 27% to $6.7 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, versus $5.3 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010. For the year, net income was $16.4 million, or $0.61 per diluted share, versus $10.4 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, in fiscal 2010.

    Fiscal 2011 net income includes a fourth quarter pre-tax provision of $0.7 million for slow-moving inventory. Earnings per share would have been $0.26 and $0.63 per diluted share for the 2011 fourth quarter and fiscal year, respectively, without this inventory charge.

    Consistent with prior quarters, organic growth was a significant driver behind the overall revenue increase, contributing growth rates of 14% and 16% for the 2011 fourth quarter and fiscal year, respectively. During the fourth quarter, the Company achieved broad based revenue growth across all of its business segments and surpassed $100 million in quarterly revenue for the first time.

    Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Sotirios J. Vahaviolos stated that, "Once again, we are very pleased by the consistent financial results produced by the Mistras model. In both the fourth quarter and fiscal year, the Company generated record revenues, gross profit, operating income, net income, earnings per share and adjusted EBITDA. Our unique approach which provides 'One Source Asset Protection Solutions' to our customers, has once again produced significant amounts of organic and acquisition revenue growth. The growth fundamentals of our business are strong and we believe this growth is a testament as to how our technology based solutions are being received and implemented by our customers."
