2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Business Description

Industry: Industrial Products » Metal Fabrication
Compare:RS, STBWY, AZZ, MLI, WOR » details
Traded in other countries:MT5.Germany
Metalico, Inc., a Delaware corporation was organized in 1997. The Company operates in three distinct business segments: ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal recycling ('Scrap Metal Recycling'), platinum group and minor metals recycling ('PGM and Minor Metals Recycling'), and metal product fabricating. The Company's operating facilities as of December 31, 2012 include twenty four scrap metal recycling facilities, including a combined aluminum de-oxidizing plant, five PGM and Minor Metal Recycling facilities and four product manufacturing and fabricating plants. Scrap Metal Recycling: Its operations primarily involve the collection and processing of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. It collects industrial and obsolete scrap metal, process it into reusable forms and supply the recycled metals to its ultimate consumers, including electric arc furnace mills, integrated steel mills, foundries, secondary smelters, aluminum recyclers and metal brokers. It acquires unprocessed scrap metals primarily in its local and regional markets and sells to consumers nationally and in Canada as well as to exporters and international brokers. It is also able to supply quantities of scrap aluminum to its aluminum recycling facility, catalytic converters to its PGM recycling subsidiaries and scrap to its fabricating subsidiaries. PGM and Minor Metals Recycling: It recycles the platinum group metals ('PGMs'), platinum, palladium, and rhodium, from the substrate material retrieved from catalytic converters. The scrap catalytic device collection market is highly fragmented and characterized by a large number of suppliers dealing with a wide range of volumes. Converters for recycling are obtained from networks of auto dismantlers, scrap yards, parts dealers and manufacturers. Minor Metals recycling includes such metals as molybdenum, tungsten, tantalum, niobium, rhenium and chrome. Specialized uses for these elements combined with a lack of abundance relative to traditional base metals results in higher pricing for these recyclable materials. Fabricating: Through four physical operations located in three states, it consumes approximately 40 to 45 million pounds of metal per year that are utilized in more than one hundred different base products. Its products are sold nationally into diverse industries such as roofing, plumbing, radiation shielding for pharmaceutical and power generation, electronic solders, ammunition, automotive, Department of Defense contractors, and others. The nature of its business and previous operations by others at facilities owned or operated by the company are subject to government regulation, including stringent environmental laws and regulations.
