Key Factors to Note
Terex’s fourth-quarter performance is likely to have benefited from robust booking and backlogs across its segments, margin expansion, strong customer demand as well as cost-reduction actions.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the Aerial Work Platforms segment’s fourth-quarter net sales is pegged at $453 million, calling for growth of 9.9% from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure. The segment is expected to have benefited from solid global demand for fleet replacement.
In the Genie business, globally, rental rates are rising, used equipment pricing remains strong and fleet utilization continues to improve on recovery in the aerials rental industry. The Utilities market is improving significantly, aided by strong demand across its end-markets of tree care, rental and investor-owned utilities. These tailwinds might contribute to the segment’s results for the December-end quarter.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the Material Processing segment’s net sales is pegged at $446 million for the October-December months, indicating an improvement of 22% from the year-earlier quarter’s tally.
Robust end-market demand across minerals processing, material handling and lifting, environmental and concrete are likely to have driven the segment’s performance in the to-be-reported quarter. A solid product pipeline, expansion into newer geographies, delivery of innovative products and continued strong execution bode well for the segment.
Higher input costs, primarily of steel, might have affected the company’s margin in the period under review.
