Furmanite Corporation Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

Furmanite Corporation (NYSE: FRM) today reported results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. Revenues were $75.6 million, compared with a record $78.3 million for the third quarter of 2011. Unfavorable currency effects accounted for $1.3 million of the revenue decrease, but had minimal effect on operating income. The operating loss for the quarter, including $0.2 million of restructuring and corporate headquarters relocation costs, was $0.7 million. Net loss for the quarter was $1.3 million, or $0.03 per diluted share.

“Our earnings for this quarter were poor by any standard, but especially when compared to the excellent third quarter performance last year. While revenue results were close to expectations, this quarter’s reported earnings reflected something of a perfect storm. Many negative issues impacted our earnings, including Gulf Coast weather, project margin shortfalls, a portion of the European restructuring, restructuring related indirect costs and inefficiencies, acquisition timing and assimilation, deferred projects, bad debt provisions, and the final headquarters relocation expense,” said Charles R. Cox, Chairman and CEO of Furmanite Corporation. “Thankfully, we do not anticipate this kind of negative confluence going forward.”

Joseph Milliron, Furmanite President and COO, said, “While this has been an exciting year of transition, change and preparation for the future, we have certainly encountered far more unforeseen short-term issues than expected. In spite of these issues, we are successfully creating our new global organization and making many improvements which will prepare us to grow and execute better than ever before.” Mr. Milliron continued, “We responded immediately to the worsening European economic crisis reality which we encountered early this year, but were not quite able to fully finalize the restructuring costs during this quarter as anticipated. We now expect the remaining $1.9 million of restructuring costs to be absorbed in fourth quarter results.”
