The Hallwood Group Incorporated reported results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2009.

For the fourth quarter, Hallwood reported net income of $6.5 million, or $4.24 per share, compared to a net loss of $93,000, or $0.06 per share, in 2008.

For the year, Hallwood reported net income of $17.1 million, or $11.18 per share, compared to net income of $1.4 million, or $0.92 per share, in 2008.

The 2008 results included an equity loss from the Company's former affiliate, Hallwood Energy, L.P. of $12.1 million.

Following is a comparison of results for the 2009 and 2008 periods:

Operating Income. For the 2009 and 2008 fourth quarters, operating income was $8.8 million and $38,000, on revenues of $51.4 million and $35.6 million, respectively.

For the 2009 and 2008 years, operating income was $25.6 million and $15.8 million, on revenues of $179.6 million and $162.2 million, respectively. The increases in 2009 revenue and operating income were primarily due to higher sales of specialty fabric to U.S. military contractors, which were $37.3 million and $130.1 million for the fourth quarter and year in 2009, compared to $20.7 million and $101.8 million for the fourth quarter and year in 2008, respectively.

The gross profit margin improved to 28.3% for 2009, compared to 23.7% for 2008. The higher gross profit margin is attributable to higher sales volumes, changes in product mix, energy savings and manufacturing efficiencies such as a reduction in working loss.
