“Furmanite delivered a strong second quarter, and we are pleased with the results. Our performance, in a market that continues to show little improvement, demonstrates the positive impact of lowering our costs and aligning our resources with our business. It also indicates that Furmanite is gaining market share by leveraging our global reach and relationships across a broad array of industries,” said Charles R. Cox, chairman and CEO of Furmanite Corporation.
Mr. Cox continued: “We have substantially completed the initiative announced at year-end 2009 at a cost of $3.4 million, which was consistent with our expectations. We now estimate that total costs for the restructuring of the EMEA Region, announced in May, will be approximately $4.0 million – $592,000 of which was incurred in the second quarter. We had anticipated that the second quarter would absorb more of the total costs; however, more time has been required to satisfy the local regulatory processes. As a result, most of the remaining restructuring costs are expected to be taken in the third and fourth quarters of 2010. Looking ahead, we are confident that Furmanite is on the right track and that we are positioning our operations to take maximum advantage of current opportunities and future improvements in the market.”
