MSA Announces Second Quarter Results
Date:7/28/2009

PITTSBURGH, July 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MSA (NYSE: MSA) today announced that net sales for the second quarter of 2009 were $227.2 million compared with $293.2 million for the second quarter of 2008, a decrease of $66.0 million, or 22 percent. Net income for the second quarter of 2009 was $12.5 million, or 35 cents per basic share, a decrease of $7.5 million, or 38 percent, compared with $20.0 million, or 56 cents per basic share, for the same quarter last year.
