CECO Environmental Corp. (CECE), a leading global environmental, energy and fluid handling technology company, reported its financial results for the first quarter of 2016.
"Despite some ongoing macroeconomic challenges continuing into 2016, we recorded bookings of $120 million in the quarter, resulting in backlog of $228 million, both of which are all-time records for CECO. We also delivered margin expansion, strong free cash flow and significant debt pay down. I am very pleased we have now fully completed the integration of our Peerless acquisition in less than nine months since the closing of the transaction. We have not only fully achieved the promised operational and overall business synergies of $15 million more than one year ahead of schedule, but we now expect to achieve $18 million in total synergies. As a result, Peerless' adjusted EBITDA was $5 million for the first quarter of 2016 versus an operating loss in their same quarter last year," said CEO Jeff Lang. "In addition, our continued focus on organic sales, recurring revenue growth, and working capital initiatives enabled debt repayment and a reduction in our leverage ratios. Lastly, we are very pleased that our sequential bookings grew from $100 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 to $120 million in the first quarter of 2016," said Jeff Lang.
"While we anticipate some macroeconomic shifting in a few markets and regions for the remainder of the year, we are confident that the actions we took in 2015 and our diversity of end markets, geographies and revenue streams provide us with a foundation to drive profitable growth through various cycles. The direction and core of our business is fundamentally strong, and we have the right team in place to deliver earnings growth, margin expansion and sales improvement into the future," concluded Jeff Lang.
