10/23/2015

PITTSBURGH, PA, OCT. 23, 2015 - Horsehead Holding Corp. (the "Company") (Nasdaq: ZINC) announced today that it has established an at-the-market ("ATM") equity program under which the Company may offer and sell, from time to time, shares of its common stock having an aggregate value of up to $50 million through Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Incorporated, as sales agent. 

The ATM equity program does not constitute an immediate sale of shares of the Company's common stock and the Company is not required to sell any shares of its common stock at any time. The ATM equity program permits the Company to sell shares of its common stock in such number, at such times and at such prices as the Company shall determine. Under the ATM equity program, sales of shares of the Company's common stock, if any, may be made through Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Incorporated by any method deemed to be an "at-the-market offering" as defined in Rule 415 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act").

The Company expects to use the net proceeds from sales of its common stock under the ATM equity program, if any, for general corporate purposes, which may include liquidity for operational contingencies, capital expenditures and working capital.

The securities described above are being offered pursuant to a registration statement previously filed and declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on October 3, 2013. The offering is being made only by means of a prospectus supplement and accompanying base prospectus. Copies of the prospectus supplement and accompanying base prospectus relating to the offering may be obtained from Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Incorporated, Attention: Prospectus Department, One South Street, 15th Floor, Baltimore, MD 21202, or by calling (855) 300-7136. An electronic copy of the prospectus supplement and accompanying base prospectus relating to the offering is available on the website of the SEC at www.sec.gov.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
