Gibraltar to Record Fourth Quarter 2022 Charge for Processing Business Write-Down
Gibraltar Industries, Inc. (“Gibraltar” and the “Company”), a leading manufacturer and provider of products and services for the renewable energy, residential, agtech and infrastructure markets, today announced it will record a fourth quarter 2022 non-cash charge estimated to be $14 million, or $0.35 per share, to write down assets associated with its processing equipment business, which was classified as held for sale as of March 31, 2022, to estimated fair market value. As a result, the Company now expects GAAP earnings per share for the year ended December 31, 2022 to be in the range of $2.50 to $2.60, down from the prior estimated range of $2.90 to $3.00. The revenue range of $1.38 billion to $1.43 billion and adjusted EPS range of $3.30 to $3.40 for the year ended December 31, 2022 are unaffected by the write-down.
Chairman and CEO Bill Bosway stated, “The depressed dynamics of the cannabis and hemp processing equipment market led us to pursue a divestiture of these assets. As we continue our efforts to sell this business, we have determined that its estimated fair market value is less than its carrying amount, and therefore will be taking a charge to adjust book value to estimated market value. We continue to focus on our core Agtech greenhouse solutions that support our growers in the produce, commercial and cannabis markets.”
Gibraltar has provided an estimate of the non-cash charge and a range of expected GAAP earnings because the closing procedures for the fiscal quarter and year ended December 31, 2022 are not yet complete.
