Quanex Sets Timing for Announcing Future Quarterly and Annual Results

HOUSTON, Nov. 29, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quanex Building Products Corporation (NYSE:NX) today announced that its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2011 results will be released on Monday, December 12, 2011, before the market opens. On the same day, the company will host a conference call at 10:00 a.m. (CT) to discuss the financial results. A live web broadcast of the event will be available on the Quanex.com Investor Relations section of the website.

"Beginning with this quarter's earnings release and going forward, our objective will be to minimize the amount of time between issuing results and filing the required SEC quarterly or annual report. The goal is to file the related SEC report on the same day or within one week of releasing earnings," said Brent Korb, Quanex's senior vice president and chief financial officer. "In this way, we can continue to provide timely and accurate information to our shareholders, while also reducing the exposure to potential significant subsequent events."
