“Our team delivered another quarter of strong operating performance with both sections achieving higher volumes while navigating a volatile price environment.

Looking forward, we remain focused on the continued implementation of our productivity initiatives, volume growth and capital investment strategy to support our objectives of increasing our efficiency and operating leverage, expanding our products and broadening our consumer reach.”
Operating income was $29M in the third quarter, $7M, or 34%, higher sequentially. Operating income per ferrous ton of $31 was $6 higher sequentially.

Operating income in the previous year third quarter was $55M or $56 per ferrous ton. The year-over-year margin compression resulted primarily from the decline in average net selling prices for nonferrous and ferrous products and lower ferrous sales volumes, partially offset by the benefits from productivity initiatives.
