Press Release

Portec Rail Products, Inc. Reports 2010 Third Quarter and Nine Month Operating Results (unaudited)

Pittsburgh, PA, - November 4, 2010 - Portec Rail Products, Inc. (NASDAQ Global Market -“PRPX”) today announced unaudited net income of $1,241,000 or $0.13 per share for the three months ended September 30, 2010, and $2,562,000 or $0.27 per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2010.  Results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010 include charges of $0.09 and $0.43 per share for expenses related to the proposed merger with L.B. Foster Company, which was announced on February 17, 2010. These amounts compare to unaudited net income of $2,023,000 or $0.21 per share, and $5,362,000 or $0.56 per share, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, respectively.  Net sales for the three months ended September 30, 2010 increased 14.9% to $27.9 million compared to $24.3 million for the same period in 2009.  Net sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 increased 14.6% to $83.7 million compared to $73.0 million for the same period in 2009. Average basic and diluted shares outstanding were 9.6 million for all periods presented.

Richard J. Jarosinski, President and Chief Executive Officer said, “Excluding merger-related costs incurred this year, our financial results reflect solid performances from nearly all of our product groups.  Our track component, load securement and non-rail United Kingdom material handling product groups have made significant contributions this year while our friction management and wayside data management product groups continue to have solid performances.”

Mr. Jarosinski concluded, “While the global railway industry conditions in 2010 are not yet what they were prior to the beginning of the economic downturn that began in late 2008, certain market sectors continue to show positive signs for increased railcar loadings and infrastructure investment. Our financial performance this year combined with our record backlog at the end of the third quarter, are signs of continued investment in the rail transportation industry, which we believe will be able to support a rebounding economy over time.”
