Dear Mr. Bram:
On behalf of the Board of Directors of Universal Stainless & Alloy Products, Inc. (the Company), I am writing in response to the unsolicited letter from you, dated October 14, 2019 (the Interest Letter), on behalf of the Board of Directors of Synalloy Corporation (Synalloy), expressing the interest of Synalloy in exploring a potential business combination between Synalloy and the Company.
The Companys Board of Directors carefully and thoroughly reviewed the contents of the Interest Letter, with the benefit of advice from the Companys independent financial and legal advisors. While appreciative of Synalloys indication of interest in the Company, our Board of Directors unanimously concluded that the pursuit of a potential business combination with Synalloy is not in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders. Our Board of Directors strongly believes that it would be more beneficial to our stockholders for the Company to continue to execute its current business strategies rather than combine with Synalloy.
/s/ Dennis M. Oates
