Fuel Tech Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results

Fuel Tech, Inc. (NASDAQ: FTEK), a world leader in advanced engineering solutions for the optimization of combustion systems and emissions control in utility and industrial applications, today reported results for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012.

Recent Highlights

  • Record Air Pollution Control (APC) bookings of $47.4 million in July, including the largest contract booking in Company history of $36.6 million, bringing our total backlog from $20.1 million on June 30, 2012 up to $67.5 million and reflecting strong growth in international business
  • Slower domestic APC bookings, the result of regulatory delay with Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSPAR)
  • Continued softness in our FUEL CHEM ® markets, the result of low natural gas prices and decreased coal usage, leading to a year-over-year revenue decline and reduced diluted earnings per share of $0.03 compared to the second half of 2011
  • Increased year-over-year spending in Research & Development of $0.7 million, representing $0.02 diluted earnings per share, in support of new product development and additional offerings
