Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

Management of Worthington Industries, Inc. (the "Registrant") conducted a conference call on June 27, 2013 beginning at approximately 1:30 p.m., Eastern Daylight Time, to discuss the Registrant's unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 (the fiscal quarter ended May 31, 2013). Additionally, the Registrant's management addressed certain issues related to the outlook for the Registrant and its subsidiaries and their markets for the coming months. A copy of the transcript of the conference call is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

The information contained in this Item 2.02 and Exhibit 99.1 furnished with this Current Report on Form 8-K, is being furnished pursuant to Item 2.02 and shall not be deemed to be "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section, unless the Registrant specifically states that the information is to be considered "filed" under the Exchange Act or incorporates the information by reference into a filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), or the Exchange Act.

In the conference call, management referred to earnings per share excluding restructuring and impairment charges. This represents a non-GAAP financial measure and is used by management as a measure of operating performance. Earnings per share excluding restructuring and impairment charges is calculated by adding the after tax impact of impairment of long-lived assets, restructuring and other expense, joint venture transactions and non-recurring charges within equity in net income of unconsolidated affiliates (equity income) to net earnings attributable to controlling interest, and dividing the result by the average diluted common shares for the period. The difference between the GAAP-based measure of earnings per share (EPS) attributable to controlling interest of $1.91 and the earnings per share excluding restructuring and impairment charges financial measure of $2.08 for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2013, as mentioned in the conference call, is outlined below.

Diluted EPS attributable to controlling interest                             $    1.91
Impairment of long-lived assets                                                   0.06
Restructuring and other expense                                                   0.03
Joint venture transactions                                                       (0.01 )
Non-recurring charges in equity in net income of unconsolidated affiliates        0.08
Adjusted diluted EPS attributable to controlling interest 2                  $    2.08

The Compensation and Stock Option Committee (the "Compensation Committee") of
the Board of Directors (the "Board") of the Registrant approved, effective June
28, 2013, the following base salaries and short-term incentive compensation
awards for the twelve-month performance period ending May 31, 2014, for the
named executive officers identified below.

                                   Short-Term Incentive Compensation
                                   Awards for the Period ending May
                                             31, 2014(i):

(i) The last three columns show the potential payouts which can be earned under short-term incentive compensation awards based on achievement of specified levels of performance for the twelve-month period ending May 31, 2014. Payouts of these awards for corporate executives are generally tied to achieving specified levels (threshold, target and maximum) of corporate economic value added and adjusted earnings per share for the twelve-month performance period with each performance measure carrying a 50% weighting. For Mr. Billman, a business unit executive, the corporate earnings per share measure carries a 20% weighting, the Pressure Cylinders business unit operating income carries a 30% weighting and the Pressure Cylinders business unit economic value added carries a 50% weighting. If the performance level falls between threshold and target or between target and maximum, the award is to be prorated. If threshold levels are not achieved for any performance measure, no payout will be made.

(ii) These base salaries become effective September 2013. George P. Stoe, the other named executive officer of the Registrant for purposes of this Item 5.02, retired as President and Chief Operating Officer of the Registrant effective August 1, 2012, but remained employed as non-executive chairman of the Specialty Cabs business unit. He retired from that position effective May 31, 2013, but remains employed by the Registrant as an advisor. He will receive a base salary during fiscal 2014 of $5,000 per month, but will not receive a short-term cash incentive compensation award for the fiscal year ending May 31, 2014.

    Performance Share Awards for the Three-Year Period Ending May 31, 2016:

                    No. of Common Shares

Virgil L. Winland   1,000   2,000   4,000
Andrew J. Billman   1,500   3,000   6,000

Pay-outs of performance awards are generally tied to achieving specified levels (threshold, target and maximum) of cumulative corporate economic value added for the three-year performance period and earnings per share growth over the performance period, with each performance measure carrying a 50% weighting. For Mr. Billman, a business unit executive, the corporate earnings per share measure carries a 25% weighting, the corporate economic value added carries a 25% weighting, and the Pressure Cylinders business unit operating income carries a 50% weighting. If the performance level falls between threshold and target or between target and maximum, the award is prorated. Performance award pay-outs would generally be made no later than three months following the end of the applicable performance period. Cash performance awards may be paid in cash, common shares of the Registrant, other property, or any combination thereof, at the sole discretion of the Compensation Committee at the time of payment. Performance share awards will be paid in common shares of the Registrant. In general, termination of employment results in termination of awards. However, if termination is due to death, disability or retirement, a pro rata payout will be made if the performance period will end 24 months or less after termination of employment based on the number of months of employment completed by the named executive officer during the performance period before the effective date of termination, provided that the applicable performance goals are achieved. No payout will be made if the performance period will end more than 24 months after termination of employment. Unless the Board specifically provides otherwise, in the event of a change in control of the Registrant, performance awards will be considered to be earned, payable in full, and immediately settled or distributed, if the change in control is followed by specified types of termination of employment within two years of the change in control.


For further information about the 1997 Long-Term Incentive Plan, and the performance awards which may be made to executive officers of the Registrant, please refer to the 1997 Long-Term Incentive Plan (which was filed as Exhibit 10.8 to the Registrant's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended November 30, 2008 (SEC File No. 1-8399)) and the form of letter evidencing performance awards granted under the 1997 Long-Term Incentive Plan with targets for three-year periods (which is included as Exhibit 10.1 to the Current Report on Form 8-K)).

All of these stock options were granted as non-qualified stock options pursuant to the Worthington Industries, Inc. 2010 Stock Option Plan (the "2010 Stock Option Plan") and will expire on June 27, 2023, subject to the terms of the 2010 Stock Option Plan in respect of earlier termination or forfeiture.

                                       No. of Common Shares

               George P. Stoe                 30,000

Each non-qualified stock option granted effective June 28, 2013, has an expiration date of June 27, 2023 and vests in one-third increments on each annual anniversary of the grant date, becoming fully vested and exercisable on the third anniversary of the grant date (i.e., June 28, 2016), except for the option granted to Mr. Stoe which is to fully vest on June 28, 2014. If a named executive officer's employment terminates due to death, disability or retirement, the vested and exercisable portion of the named executive officer's non-qualified stock option will remain exercisable until the earlier of the expiration date of the non-qualified stock option (June 27, 2023) or the third anniversary of the named executive officer's termination of employment, and the Compensation Committee may elect, in its sole discretion, to accelerate the vesting of any unvested portion of the non-qualified stock option. Unless the Compensation Committee otherwise determines, in the event of a change in control (as defined in the 2010 Stock Option Plan), the portion of the non-qualified stock option at that time outstanding will become fully vested and exercisable if the employment of a named executive officer is terminated by the Registrant without cause or by the named executive officer due to an adverse change in his employment terms at any time within the two years following the change in control. If a named executive officer's employment terminates other than due to the named executive officer's death, disability or retirement or following a change in control as described above, any outstanding portion of the non-qualified stock option (whether or not vested) will be forfeited.

The restricted shares will be held in escrow by the Registrant and may not be sold, gifted, transferred, pledged, assigned or otherwise alienated or hypothecated until the restrictions thereon have lapsed. Subject to continued employment of the named executive officer, the restrictions on the restricted shares will lapse and the restricted shares will become fully vested on the third anniversary of the grant date (i.e., on June 28, 2016) or in the case of Mr. Stoe, the first anniversary of the grant date (June 28, 2014).
