Charles R. Cox, CEO of Furmanite Corporation said, “While we are disappointed with our third quarter financial results, we have continued to make significant progress in strengthening our key work processes and leadership team.” Mr. Cox continued, “Although we encountered unexpected softness in our Americas markets during the third quarter, we expect stronger market conditions through year-end, as well as improved cost efficiencies resulting from the companywide implementation of work process enhancements.”

Joseph Milliron, Furmanite President and COO, added, “While the market strength in the Americas region of our Technical Services segment did not rebound in the short term as expected, the long-term outlook remains strong, and our other operating regions around the world continue to experience increased performance improvements by embracing our Orange Way strategy of working together as one single team.” Mr. Milliron continued, “Asia-Pacific was the last region globally to have our Orange Way process implemented and its year-over-year third quarter results yielded an increase in revenues of 53%, or $4.1 million, as well as increased operating income, which more than doubled compared to the prior-year quarter.”

Mr. Cox concluded, “While we expect solid fourth quarter activity, we do not anticipate achieving our previously issued 2014 revenue or earnings guidance and have adjusted these estimates to reflect our current expectations.”

Financial Position

As of September 30, 2014, the Company’s cash balance was $42.3 million. The Company’s cash balance, along with the $38.7 million of availability under its credit facility, provides the Company liquidity of $81.0 million.

Earnings Guidance

The Company is revising its previously issued 2014 revenue guidance, with annual revenues now expected to be in the range of $535 million to $550 million and 2014 estimated net income available to common shareholders to be in the range of $0.27 to $0.33 per diluted share.
