Operating income for the three months ended September 30, 2013 was $4.4 million compared to an operating loss of $0.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012, an increase of $5.2 million. Net income for the 2013 third quarter was $2.1 million, or $0.06 per diluted share.

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2013 Results

Revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 were $296.9 million compared with $233.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, an increase of $63.6 million, or 27.3%. Operating income for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $20.1 million, an increase of $16.8 million over the corresponding prior year period of $3.3 million. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $11.4 million, or $0.30 per diluted share.

Foreign currency effects had an unfavorable impact on revenues for both the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 of approximately $1.2 million and $1.9 million, respectively, however had minimal effect on operating income in the same periods.

Charles R. Cox, Chairman and CEO of Furmanite Corporation said, “We are pleased with the continuing improvement this quarter in our operating results and we remain on track with all key strategic and financial goals. This was also a solid quarter of progress in many other ways, with the continued maturing of our organization to truly work as one global team, further strengthening of our existing service lines and the addition of our new engineering capabilities.”

Joseph Milliron, Furmanite President and COO, added, “Just ten months into the launch of the 'Orange Way' it has been great to see the speed with which our leadership team has embraced the new structure and culture, which they were a part of creating. While the assimilation of the 'Orange Way' has been more rapid in the Americas, it is apparent that we have just scratched the surface of our potential to both deliver greater value to our customers and through that, seriously drive growth.” Mr. Milliron continued, “With increased engagement and full implementation of our 'Orange Way' into the EMEA and APAC regions underway, we look forward to the further positive impact of these operations on our results over the next six to twelve months.”

Mr. Cox concluded, “Although it has only been two months since we added the 900 strong Furmanite Technical Solutions group, we are substantially through the 'acquisition transition' and every day our team is discovering many new synergies and opportunities to better meet our customers' needs. We have certainly experienced a very positive reception for this new service offering thus far!”

Financial Position

As of September 30, 2013, the Company’s cash balance was $31.7 million. The Company’s cash balance, along with the $39.3 million of availability under its credit facility, provides the Company liquidity of $71.0 million.

Earnings Guidance

The Company is increasing its annual revenue guidance for the year to a range of $420 million to $430 million, including the impact of the recently announced purchase of certain assets of ENGlobal’s Gulf Coast operations, and although third quarter and projected full year effective income tax rates are higher than previously estimated, the Company is reiterating its previously issued 2013 earnings guidance, with net income available to common shareholders for the year expected to be in the range of $0.44 to $0.48 per diluted share. The Company expects no incremental effect of the ENGlobal asset acquisition to net income available to common shareholders for 2013 due to the integration costs associated with this transaction.

Conference Call Details

In conjunction with the earnings release, Furmanite Corporation will host a conference call with Charles R. Cox (Chairman and CEO), Joseph E. Milliron (President and COO) and Robert S. Muff (Principal Financial Officer). The call will begin at 10:00 a.m. (Eastern) / 9:00 a.m. (Central) on Friday, November 1, 2013.
