Limbach 4Q Revenues Disappoint; Shares Drop
Limbach Holdings reported 4Q earnings that fared better than analysts’ expectations. However, the commercial specialty contract services provider reported lower-than-expected revenues following which its stock is down about 3.4% in Friday’s pre-market trading session.
Limbach Holdings’ (LMB) revenues declined 6.1% year-over-year to $130.4 million in 4Q and missed the Street’s expectations of $135.6 million. While the Service segment’s revenues grew 24.8% year-over-year, the Construction segment’s revenues declined 14% year-over-year.
The company reported 4Q earnings of $0.05 per share, which declined 37.5% year-over-year. Analysts were expecting a loss of $0.01 per share.
CEO Charlie Bacon said, “Although we saw some deceleration in revenue and sales in the fourth quarter due to a pause in decision-making by business owners across the non-residential construction industry, we anticipate that to be a temporary issue. We believe the drivers underlying the industry as a whole, and several of Limbach’s core end-markets specifically continue to be supportive.” (See Limbach Holdings stock analysis on TipRanks)
