 DARLING INTERNATIONAL INC. ANNOUNCES
RESULTS FOR FOURTH QUARTER AND FISCAL 2011


February 29, 2012 - IRVING, TEXAS -
Darling International Inc. (NYSE: DAR) today reported fourth quarter net income of $29.5 million, or $0.25 per share, and net income of $169.4 million, or $1.47 per share, for its fiscal year ended December 31, 2011. Sales and results of operations for the fourth quarter and fiscal year as compared to the same periods of the prior year are as follows:
Fourth Quarter 2011
For the fourth quarter of 2011, the company reported net sales of $430.9 million as compared to $227.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2010. The $203.7 million increase in sales is primarily attributable to the acquisition of Griffin Industries on December 17, 2010 as well as higher selling prices for the company's finished products as compared to 2010.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2011 increased to $29.5 million, or $0.25 per share, as compared to net income of $10.0 million, or $0.12 per share, for the 2010 comparable period. The $19.5 million increase in net income for the fourth quarter resulted primarily from the acquisition of Griffin Industries as well as higher selling prices for the company's finished products. Net income in the fourth quarter of 2011 as compared to the third quarter of 2011 was negatively impacted by the decrease in both fat and protein meal finished product prices, which impacted margins in our non-formula based business.
Fiscal 2011
Darling International Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Randall Stuewe, said “Fiscal 2011 was a record setting year for the company. Earnings performance was attributable to strong finished product markets driven by an improving global economy and continued implementation of global bio-diesel mandates. Additionally, a full year of integration efforts reflecting the late 2010 acquisition of Griffin Industries supported the company's performance. During fiscal 2011, the company watched values for the global feed grains, the oilseeds complex and used cooking oil escalate throughout the first half of the year, only to be tempered in the
