Die untenstehende Meldung ist eine Original-Meldung des Unternehmens. Sie ist nicht von der ECOreporter.de-Redaktion bearbeitet. Die presserechtliche Verantwortlichkeit liegt bei dem meldenden Unternehmen.

Orion Energy Systems, Inc., a leading provider of energy management systems to the commercial and industrial sectors, announced today that, on a preliminary basis, annual revenues for its fiscal year ended March 31, 2009, are currently expected to be between $71 million and $73 million and that earnings per share are expected to be between $0.01 and $0.03 per fully diluted share. Orion's preliminary results for its fiscal 2009 are unaudited and remain subject to finalization, revision and adjustment, including any revisions and adjustments that may result from the fiscal year end financial statement closing and audit processes.

``As we commented earlier this year, the global recession has presented significant headwinds in the form of declining customer capital expenditure budgets, lengthening customer sales cycles, accelerated plant closures and job losses of key contacts at our existing customers. These challenges delayed several significant national account opportunities and had meaningful impact on our fourth quarter results,'' commented Neal Verfuerth, CEO of Orion Energy Systems. ``We strongly believe that these opportunities are still alive, as indicated by several purchase orders we have already received from these delayed opportunities since the quarter ended. We remain hopeful that this trend continues and that we capture these revenues in fiscal 2010.''
