Furmanite Corporation (FRM) today reported results for the quarter ended March 31, 2014.
First Quarter 2014 Results
Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2014 were $124.9 million, an increase of $35.9 million, or 40.3%, over the $89.0 million reported for the three months ended March 31, 2013. Operating income for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was $2.5 million compared to $4.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, a decrease of $1.6 million. Foreign currency effects on both revenues and operating income were insignificant for the three months ended March 31, 2014. Net income for the 2014 first quarter was $1.0 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to $2.6 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, in the 2013 first quarter.
Charles R. Cox, Chairman and CEO of Furmanite Corporation said, “We are pleased that we were able to mitigate somewhat the financial impact of the ‘Polar Vortex’ and still report both a profitable quarter and our best ever first quarter revenue performance! We remain fully committed to all aspects of our long-term transformation of Furmanite, and see strong indications that our Orange Way ‘one single global team’ concept is now taking firm hold beyond the Americas region.”
Joseph Milliron, Furmanite President and COO, added, “As indicated in our March release, we experienced weather-related deferrals and disruptions in the Americas with a significant resulting impact on both revenue and labor utilization. In spite of this weather impact, the global revenues from our Technical Services segment increased by 5% over the first quarter of 2013, fueled by strong results from our EMEA region where revenues increased $6.9 million, or 34%, and operating income was up $2.6 million over the same period last year.” Mr. Milliron continued, “We are finding many synergies with our new Engineering & Project Solutions team and are focused on leveraging the whole new range of opportunities they have brought to Furmanite. We are also pleased with the year-to-date financial progress in this segment, with an 8% increase in revenue as well as a $0.7 million operating improvement, excluding integration costs, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. We remain confident of continued profitability improvements within this segment, along with growing reciprocal synergistic impacts on our Technical Services business going forward.”
Mr. Cox concluded, “The key question before us regarding 2014 is how much of the ground we lost in the first quarter can be made up in the remaining nine months! While the second quarter has started off very strong, and we see indications of this strength continuing, we have somewhat moderated our full year earnings per share guidance until we gain at least another quarter of both market visibility and more definitive financial results.”
As of March 31, 2014, the Company’s cash balance was $29.8 million. The Company’s cash balance, along with the $38.7 million of availability under its credit facility, provides the Company liquidity of $68.5 million.
The Company reiterates its previously issued 2014 revenue guidance, with annual revenues for 2014 expected to be in the range of $540 million to $560 million, however it is revising its net income available to common shareholders estimate, which in light of the events of the first quarter, is expected to be in the range of $0.45 to $0.50 per diluted share.

A reconciliation of EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP measure is presented above.
