CECO’s Chief Executive Officer Dennis Sadlowski commented, “The third quarter of 2017 presented continued challenges, including soft volume throughout the quarter that led to disappointing results.  Our served energy markets are experiencing notable headwinds that we expect to continue into 2018.  However, even with soft power generation and refinery markets, we picked up key wins in those segments and our team remains committed to market share penetration.”

Mr. Sadlowski added, “We also concluded our strategic plan assessment and have made several decisions together with our Board to transform the business to win market share and create value.  We are implementing a restructuring program during the fourth quarter to reduce costs by approximately $5-7 million per annum, and refocusing our portfolio including exiting non-core and low critical mass products.  We also recently modified our debt covenants to allow for flexibility to invest in a tough market cycle.  Additionally, our Board agreed to suspend the current quarterly dividend so that cash can be used towards investment for growth in people, systems and customer focused product innovation.  While we are not pleased with our results and the current state of our core end-markets, we are committed to implementing the necessary steps to transform the Company to once again realize increasing profits and generating returns for all of our stakeholders.”
