The Brink's Company BCO is scheduled to report first-quarter 2021 results on Apr 28, before the bell.
The company has an impressive earnings surprise history. It surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in three of the trailing four quarters and missed the same in one, the average beat being 260.7%.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues is pegged at $983.4 million, indicating a rise of 12.7% from the year-ago reported figure. The top line is expected to have benefited from continued retail recovery from the pandemic-induced lows, organic growth and benefits of the G4S acquisition.
The consensus estimate for earnings stands at 71 cents per share, implying year-over-year growth of 97.2%. This earnings growth is likely to have been driven by benefits of cost reductions and business restructurings.
