Metalico to Delay Filing 10-K

CRANFORD, NJ--(Marketwired - Mar 27, 2015) - Metalico, Inc. (NYSE MKT: MEA), a scrap metal recycler, has announced plans to delay filing its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 for up to fifteen days from the current target date of March 31.

The Company has filed a Notification of Late Filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for the Annual Report, allowing the Company to file its 2014 10-K by April 15. Metalico intends to release its results for 2014 and the fourth quarter and host an earnings call by that date.

Metalico stated that it is in talks with its senior secured lenders about future compliance with terms of its debt as a result of further downturns in the scrap industry and their impact on the Company's financial statements. These factors may affect the presentation of certain items in the 2014 Annual Report and, accordingly, the Company will not be able to file the report by March 31, 2015.

Metalico continues to meet all its obligations to its various constituencies and is focused on maintaining a sustainable capital structure pending improvement in its business.
