EVANSVILLE, Ind. – March 3, 2015 – Accuride Corporation (NYSE: ACW) – a leading supplier of components to the North American commercial vehicle industry – today reported strong financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2014.  The results demonstrate the power of Accuride's "Fix & Grow" investments to deliver world-class operating metrics, reduce fixed costs and support ongoing margin improvement.

Fourth Quarter 2014 Results
Fourth quarter 2014 net sales from continuing operations were $172.8 million, compared with $144.7 million in the same period in 2013, an increase of 19.4 percent, primarily reflecting the impact of stronger industry conditions in the Company's Wheels and Brillion segments during the quarter.  Accuride's operating income was $3.7 million for the quarter, as compared to an operating loss of $1.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2013.  The Company reported a net loss of $5.1 million, or $0.10 per share, during the quarter, compared to net income of $1.9 million, or $0.04 per share, in 2013.  Fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA increased by 59.2 percent year-over-year to $15.6 million, or 9.1 percent of net sales, compared to $9.8 million, or 6.8 percent of net sales, in the same quarter of 2013.  As of December 31, 2014, Accuride had $29.8 million of cash plus $40.5 million in availability under its ABL Credit Facility for total liquidity of $70.3 million.

Fiscal Year 2014 Results
Net sales from continuing operations for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014 were $705.2 million, compared with $642.9 million in the prior year, an increase of 9.7 percent.  The net sales increase was primarily due to higher vehicle production by North American commercial vehicle manufacturers and strengthening in certain industrial end-markets Brillion serves.  Accuride reported a loss per share of $0.04 for the year ended December 31, 2014.  Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for fiscal-year 2014 was $78.0 million, or 11.1 percent of net sales, compared to $47.0 million, or 7.3 percent of net sales, in the prior year.

Industry Conditions
In the fourth quarter, North American truck and trailer production continued to increase at a double-digit pace, as expected.  Class 8, Class 5-7 and trailer production grew by 27 percent, 13 percent and 25 percent, respectively, compared to 2013.  Class 8 net orders remained strong as lower fuel prices and higher profitability enabled fleets to replace aging equipment and expand their operations.  Class 8 net orders were up 66 percent for all of 2014.  This order strength is expected to translate into increased OEM production levels over the next several quarters, with full-year Class 8 production
