According to a Bloomberg report dated May 13, 2015, Industrial Services of America, Inc. (ISA) has announced the warm idle of the Company's auto shredder. The action is largely attributable to current market conditions majorly related to ferrous price volatility and lower ferrous volumes. This move will enable ISA to focus on its fundamental ferrous business, operations generating positive cash flows and future growth opportunities.

The Company's revenues from continuing operations were $12.9 million, a dip of 29% compared to $18.0 million on a year-on-year basis, largely driven by a declining trend in bullion and scrap sales and a slow sale of DGSE's product line.
