Commentary“Within the second quarter results are several positives,” said Joseph F. Puishys, Apogee chief executive officer. “We grew revenues organically while substantially reducing architectural segment losses, and we were nearly at breakeven excluding the CEO transition costs. We also had positive cash flow from operations, and maintained our solid cash and short-term investments position. In addition, we believe the architectural segment backlog trend remains positive, as the decline from the first quarter resulted from the timing of contract signings.”
FY12 SECOND-QUARTER SEGMENT AND OPERATING RESULTS VS. PRIOR-YEAR PERIODArchitectural Products and Services
- Revenues of $149.1 million were up 17 percent, due to the addition of the Brazilian architectural glass business, which contributed 7 percentage points of the increase; growth in the window and storefront businesses; and improved architectural glass pricing.
Operating loss was $5.1 million, compared to a loss of $10.8 million.
Results improved from the prior-year period with higher
