Smiths Detection, Inc. Key Developments
Smiths Detection Announces Earnings Results for the Third Quarter and Year to Date May 2, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015
May 21 15
Smiths Detection announced earnings results for the third quarter and year to date May 2, 2015. The company delivered underlying growth in headline operating profit in both the third quarter and year to date against a weak comparator that was affected by £12 million of non-recurring charges.
Despite challenging trading conditions across many markets, which resulted in lower underlying revenue for the year to date, the company continues to make good progress in implementing business improvement and cost cutting initiatives. These are contributing to an improved outlook for headline operating profit margin in 2015 and strengthening the competitive positioning. 2015 full year revenue is expected to be below last year. Headline operating margins are likely to improve for the year against a comparator affected by one-off costs.
