Six Months Ended June 30, 2014 Results

Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2014 were $271.2 million, an increase of $73.8 million, or 37.4%, over the $197.4 million reported for the six months ended June 30, 2013. Operating income for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $10.8 millioncompared to $15.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013, a decrease of $4.9 million. Net income for the six months endedJune 30, 2014 was $5.5 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared to $9.3 million, or $0.25 per diluted share for the six months ended June 30, 2013.

Additionally, foreign currency had an insignificant, favorable impact on revenues and operating income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014; however, the Company’s effective income tax rate for those periods still remained slightly higher than the full year expected rate.

Charles R. Cox, CEO of Furmanite Corporation, said, “We are pleased to report that the Orange Way driven trends we have seen in the Americas for over a year now are positively impacting both APAC and EMEA, with revenues and operating income up significantly for the quarter! The market strength that we expected to resume in the Americas after the slow first quarter, however, did not materialize to the extent we were anticipating in our Technical Services business. As a result, we did not achieve adequate leverage on our overall costs, which led to our year-over-year decline in operating income.” Mr. Cox continued, “Thankfully, we have seen a strong start to both third quarter activity and second half turnaround planning.”

Joseph Milliron, Furmanite President and COO, added, “Although we saw good revenue growth in the Americas for our Engineering & Project Solutions segment this quarter, our Technical Services segment was down nearly 10% from the prior year in the region. While our customers continue to express a positive outlook, we saw a number of projects delayed, downsized or canceled in the second quarter. In addition to an encouraging market outlook for the balance of the year, we are also taking proactive steps to expedite the global implementation of our work process improvement initiatives in order to provide lean efficiencies and reduce our overhead burden.” Mr. Milliron continued, “We are extremely pleased to see the progress in APAC and EMEA as the Orange Way strategy of working together as one single global team takes hold and begins to bear fruit in those regions. We look forward to having all three of our regions performing well during the second half of the year.”

Mr. Cox concluded, “We fully recognize that we have a significant hill to climb at this point in the year; however, with what appears to be a strong market in the Americas, the positive trends in APAC and EMEA, combined with our work process improvements and cost management initiatives that we began in the second quarter, we continue to view our previously issued full-year earnings estimates as achievable.”

As of June 30, 2014, the Company’s cash balance was $37.8 million. The Company’s cash balance, along with the $38.7 million of availability under its credit facility, provides the Company liquidity of $76.5 million.
