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.

Other Income (Loss). Other income (loss) consists of an equity loss from its Hallwood Energy investment in 2008, as well as interest expense, and interest and other income.

For the fourth quarter, other income (loss) was a loss of $78,000, compared to a loss of $49,000 in 2008.

For the year, other income (loss) was a loss of $216,000, compared to a loss of $12.7 million in 2008, due to the aforementioned equity loss from Hallwood Energy.
