AAON Reports First Quarter Results

TULSA, OK--(Marketwire - May 6, 2010) - AAON, Inc. (NASDAQ: AAON) today announced its operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2010 compared to March 31, 2009. Sales decreased 23% to $49.3 million from $64.0 million and net income declined 24% to $5.1 million from $6.7 million. Earnings per diluted share were $0.30, down 23% from $0.39, based upon 17.3 million diluted shares outstanding both years.

Norman H. Asbjornson, President and CEO, stated, "The decreases in sales and earnings were attributable to current economic conditions."

Mr. Asbjornson added that, "Our outlook is for lower sales and earnings compared to 2009 based upon a continuation of reduced U.S. nonresidential construction spending in the foreseeable future. However, on the positive side, all of our new products are being very well received and our market share is growing."

The Company will host a conference call today at 4:15 P.M. EDT to discuss the first quarter results. To participate, call 1-877-737-1699 (Code: VA22404).
