BRSS is in very prosaic business, copper and brass products. It’s the product of a leveraged buyout where the private equity owner has stripped as much cash as possible from the balance sheet by borrowing and paying dividends. Sales for the March 2013 quarter were $ 445 million and BRSS earned $ 11 million, or 2.6% of revenue. However, earnings for all of 2012 were only $ 13 million on sales of $ 1.65 billion.
