Adams Resources Announces First Quarter 2012 Earnings

HOUSTON, May 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Adams Resources & Energy, Inc., (NYSE Amex - AE), announced first quarter 2012 unaudited net earnings of $6,575,000 or $1.56 per common share on revenues of $877,489,000. This compares to unaudited first quarter 2011 net earnings of $5,583,000 or $1.32 per common share. Net cash provided by operating activities totaled $9,211,000 for the three-month period ended March 31, 2012.

K. S. Adams, Jr., Chairman, commented that demand within the Company's marketing and transportation segments remained strong during the first quarter of 2012 leading to the favorable results. Both comparative periods benefited from gains on property sales with the 2012 quarter reflecting $2.9 million in pre-tax gains from the sale of used truck-tractors and from equipment sales associated with the Company's discontinued refined products marketing business. Comparatively, the first quarter 2011 benefited from a $2.8 million pre-tax gain on the sale of certain oil and gas property interests.

    A summary of operating results follows:
