Northwest Pipe Announces the Sale of Its OCTG Business to Centric Pipe, LLC

VANCOUVER, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/31/14 -- Northwest Pipe Company (NASDAQ: NWPX) today announced it has sold substantially all of its oil country tubular goods ("OCTG") assets to Centric Pipe, LLC, an affiliate of Dallas-based OCTG supplier SB International, Inc., for a purchase price of $42.7 million. The Company will retain ownership of, and lease to Centric Pipe its Houston, Texas real property. Centric Pipe will have the option to purchase the Houston real property at a later date.

"After reviewing a full range of alternatives for our OCTG business, we determined that a sale to Centric Pipe provided the best outcome for the Company, our shareholders, and our employees," said Scott Montross, Northwest Pipe President and CEO. "This divestiture will enable us to increase our focus on growing our core Water Transmission business, while placing these assets in the hands of an experienced OCTG company with global relationships. This announcement in no way affects the Company's commitment to and continued investment in our Atchison, Kansas line pipe facility which is on schedule to complete a major expansion project."

Raymond James & Associates, Inc. served as exclusive financial advisor to Northwest Pipe in connection with this transaction and assisted in the review of strategic alternatives for the OCTG business.
