COMMERCIAL SOLUTIONS INC. ("Commercial" or "Company") (TSX:CSA) a leading Canadian distributor of bearings, power transmission equipment, oilfield, industrial, and safety products today announced its financial results for the three-month period ended December 31, 2012. A complete copy of the Company's report will be available on the Internet at www.sedar.com.

Financial highlights from first quarter of fiscal 2013 are as follows:

Commercial reported revenues of $27.4 million, a $2.1 million decline from the same period in the prior year. EBITDA for the quarter was $0.4 million in comparison to $1.3 million in the same period last year, representing a $0.9 million decline. The Company reported net loss of $0.2 million for the quarter compared to net earnings of $0.4 million during the same quarter of fiscal 2012 representing a $0.6 million decline.

The decrease in earnings was primarily due to lower revenues, lower gross margin rates and higher operating expenses. After normalizing for the one-time legal expenses directly related to the potential sale of the Company, operating expenses were consistent with the prior year. Lower gross margin rates were directly related to sales mix as a higher proportion of sales related to high dollar value capital equipment sold for rig building in comparison to the prior year. There were several reasons that contributed to the reduced revenues:


1.  Christmas holiday timing reduced the number of business days and drove
    dramatic shifts in sales activity in December. Total of October and
    November revenues were consistent with the revenues reported in the same
    period of the prior year. For December 2012, sales were lower than prior
    year primarily due to number of billing days in the month. Normalized
    for this effect, first quarter sales were approximately 1.6% ($476,450)
    lower than the same period in the prior year. 
2.  Reduction in drilling activity in Western Canada. The Canadian
    Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors rig utilization data in the
    first quarter of fiscal 2013 was 43.5% compared to 60.7% in the same
    period of the prior year. 
3.  United States "fiscal cliff" concerns contracted expected December
    customer spending. 

With respect to the recent announcement of the purchase offer withdrawn by Industrial Distribution Group ("IDG"), Jim Barker, President and CEO of Commercial noted, "We are disappointed in IDG's decision to withdraw its offer to purchase Commercial Solutions. While no detailed reasons were forthcoming, we will continue to run our business to enhance profitability by maintaining a strong balance sheet and a cost structure that helps withstand the ongoing volatility in our key markets. We have built an enterprise with a fundamentally sound business model with high quality people and excellent relationships with our senior lender, key vendors, and customers. We believe that we are well positioned to continue to support ongoing operations in our business driving organic growth as well as opportunistically pursue selective acquisitions. Due to recent events, our Board of Directors and Officers of the Company will be reviewing strategic alternatives with a serious examination of options that would provide additional value to all shareholders. The review of these alternatives will start immediately and is expected to be ongoing over the next two quarters. Updates will be provided as appropriate."
