“Furmanite is performing in line with our intentions, and we continue to meet our goals as planned. We are extremely pleased to be nearing the end of our announced restructuring efforts, with a significant portion of the remaining related costs absorbed in the third quarter. Excluding restructuring costs of $1.9 million for the quarter and $4.3 million year to date, our underlying financial results are beginning to reflect the positive impact of this action, with improvement of approximately $3.5 million and $8.7 million respectively at the net income level,” said Charles R. Cox, chairman and CEO of Furmanite Corporation. “The restructuring has improved our effectiveness, as well as our efficiency, and has helped us direct our attention more precisely on further performance improvement opportunities. Our highest priorities are customer service, culture change and responsible growth. Our entire organization is now fully focused on what we want our company to be and where we want it to go in the future.”

Joseph E. Milliron, president and chief operating officer of Furmanite Corporation, added, “We also know that Furmanite’s continuing improvement and results throughout this year are a direct reflection of our people.
