Key Factors to Note

AMETEK’s first-quarter results are expected to reflect positive contributions from acquisitions.

The Magnetrol International and Crank Software buyouts are anticipated to have driven growth in AMETEK’s Electronic Instruments segment in the quarter under review. Acquisitions of Motec, Forza, Telular, Gatan, Intellipower and Spectro Scientific are expected to have benefitted the segment.

The impacts of a strong material analysis business are anticipated to get reflected in the segment’s first-quarter sales.

The Electromechanical Group segment’s sales are likely to have gained from the Pacific Design Technologies buyout in the to-be-reported quarter. Cost-mitigation strategies are anticipated to have aided the operation performance of the segment in the quarter under review.

The company’s proper execution of its core growth strategies, including operational excellence, global market expansion, investments in product development and acquisitions, is expected to have driven the third-quarter performance.

AMETEK’s focus on cash flow generation is anticipated to have aided capital deployment activities in the to-be-reported quarter.

Apart from these, the impacts of strengthening momentum across the AMETEK Growth Model are expected to get reflected in the to-be-reported quarterly results.

However, the coronavirus pandemic-led disruptions are anticipated to have been headwinds for the company’s segments.
