Powell Industries Announces Fiscal 2014 Second Quarter Results PR Newswire HOUSTON, May 6, 2014 HOUSTON, May 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Powell Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: POWL) ("Powell"), a leading supplier of custom engineered solutions for the distribution and control of electrical energy, today announced results for the fiscal 2014 second quarter ended March 31, 2014. Revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 were $162.3 million compared to revenues of $146.0 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Income from continuing operations for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was $7.0 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, compared to income from continuing operations of $6.2 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. On January 15, 2014, Powell closed the sale of Transdyn, Inc. and has recorded the results of Transdyn as discontinued operations. Income from discontinued operations in the second quarter of 2014, including the gain on sale, was $8.6 million, or $0.71 per diluted share. Net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was $15.6 million, or $1.29 per diluted share. Michael A. Lucas, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We had a solid second quarter, with improving margins as a result of our process enhancements and cost saving activities, and have a healthy ending backlog. At the request of customers, we rescheduled shipments of a few large projects, which will result in some revenues being pushed into subsequent quarters. These delivery changes are not uncommon to our project-based business, and we are working to add some short cycle work to fill available short-term capacity. Additionally, we continued to manage efficiency and utilization challenges as we ramped up capacity in our Canadian operations. In spite of this temporary issue, we are delivering on time and meeting customer commitments. "We continue to see strength in the oil and gas market, with a significant portion of our activity in North America. We remain optimistic about the key segments of pipelines, petrochemical and LNG. Inquiry activity continues at a healthy pace, as we leverage our strong position in the U.S. and Canadian markets." New orders from continuing operations in the fiscal 2014 second quarter were $163 million compared to $192 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 and compared to $118 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. The Company's backlog for continuing operations as of March 31, 2014 was $452 million compared to $455 million as of December 31, 2013 and compared to $439 million at the end of last year's second quarter. OUTLOOK The following statements are based on the current expectations of the Company for its continuing operations. These statements are forward-looking, and actual results may differ materially as further elaborated in the last paragraph below. Based on its backlog and current business conditions, Powell Industries continues to expect full year fiscal 2014 revenues from continuing operations to range between $700 million and $750 million and fiscal year 2014 earnings to range between $2.85 and $3.35 per diluted share. This earnings guidance excludes the discontinued operations of Transdyn, Inc. and the associated gain on sale.
