"We are pleased with our second quarter results. We substantially completed the integration of Seroyal, and the new North American management structure implemented a few months ago is beginning to provide tangible benefits to support our next growth phase," said Pierre Fitzgibbon, President and Chief Executive Officer.
"We experienced strong revenue growth from acquisitions, as well as solid global organic growth for a second consecutive quarter from our branded products. Moreover, we increased our EBITDA margin compared to the first quarter of 2011, and we should expect further improvements going forward with the various initiatives underway in our global supply chain management program".
"We are confident in our ability to out-perform the industry since we have started several new organic growth initiatives," concluded Mr. Fitzgibbon.
For the quarter ended June 30, 2011, Atrium recorded revenues of $105.2 million representing an increase of 23.5% compared to revenues of $85.2 million in 2010. This increase is mainly attributable to the acquisitions of Seroyal and Minami as well as to organic growth of the Company's branded business.
EBITDA increased by 17.2% to $23.8 million or 22.6% of revenues compared to $20.3 million or 23.8% of revenues for the same period in 2010. The acquisitions of Seroyal and Minami and organic growth contributed to the increase in EBITDA.
Net earnings attributable to shareholders were $14.4 million in 2011 compared to $12.4 million in 2010, representing an increase of 16.1%. Net earnings per share ("EPS") on a diluted basis rose to $0.44 per share, as compared to $0.37 per share for the same period in 2010.

Subsequent to quarter-end, the Company announced yesterday the closing of a convertible debenture public offering of CAN$75 million and a concurrent private placement of CAN$25 million. The net proceeds will be used to reduce the Company's outstanding indebtedness.
"Cash flow before working capital of $18.9 million during the quarter increased 24.3% over the same period last year confirming our ability to generate strong cash flows," said Mario Paradis, Chief Financial Officer of the Company. "Since the beginning of 2011, we acquired over 200,000 shares under our normal course issuer bid program and we will continue to act on our program depending on the circumstances. We also are pleased with our recently completed $100 million convertible debenture deal. It represents an important milestone to manage our capital structure and further support our growth strategy," concluded Mr. Paradis.
