Flow International Postpones Filing Of Annual Report On Form 10-K

Stocks in this article: FLOW

KENT, Wash., July 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Flow International Corporation (Nasdaq:FLOW), the world's leading developer and manufacturer of industrial waterjet machines for cutting and cleaning applications, today announced that it will file a Form 12b-25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission to delay filing its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2013.

Additional time is required by management to complete the preparation of the Company's financial statements and the ensuing audit procedures, primarily related to Flow's Brazilian operations, which represents less than 10% of the Company's overall business, in particular, that subsidiary's internal controls and income tax position.

Flow expects to file its Form 10-K within the 15 day extension period and hold a conference call thereafter to discuss the Company's financial results for the fourth quarter and full 2013 fiscal year.

Flow also reaffirmed its previously announced expectations for the 2013 fiscal fourth quarter. The Company expects revenues to be approximately $58 million and operating profit to approximate breakeven. 

In addition, the Company noted that its process to evaluate strategic alternatives to enhance shareholder value, including, among other things, the potential sale of the Company or other transaction, remains ongoing. While there can be no assurance that this process will result in a transaction, Flow has entered into confidentiality agreements with a number of interested parties. The Company has not set a timetable for completion of the review process, and it does not intend to comment further regarding the review process unless and until a final decision is made or further disclosure is required by law.
