Actuant Provides Details of Business Segment Realignment
MILWAUKEE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 4, 2018--As previously announced, Actuant Corporation (the “Company”) has realigned its financial reporting segments. The change is effective for the Company’s fourth quarter of 2018. The realignment reflects changes in the operating structure of the Company with the combination of the Company’s tools and services business and all OEM-related businesses into two operating segments: Industrial Tools & Services (“IT&S”) and Engineered Components & Systems (“EC&S”), respectively.
The IT&S segment results from the consolidation of the former Industrial segment, excluding the Precision-Hayes business, with the Hydratight and Mirage businesses from the former Energy segment. The new segment concentrates on product sales and service as well as rental capabilities. Executive Vice President Jeff Schmaling will lead the segment.
The EC&S segment is comprised of the former Engineered Solutions segment and now includes the Precision-Hayes business and the former Energy segment businesses, Cortland and Viking (which was divested in the second quarter of Fiscal 2018). The segment is focused on highly engineered components for transportation, agricultural, construction and other vertical markets and will be led by Executive Vice President, Roger Roundhouse.
In addition, the Company’s reportable product lines are being reorganized into the following structure: IT&S product lines - Product and Service & Rental; and EC&S product lines - On-Highway; Agriculture, Off-Highway and Other; Rope & Cable Solutions; Concrete Tensioning; and Off-Shore Mooring (divested in connection with the sale of the Viking business). The product line reporting change is also effective for the Company’s fourth quarter of 2018.
For comparative purposes, the Company has included as an attachment to this release certain unaudited historical financial results for both the new and prior segment and product line reporting. The updated segment presentation will be reflected in the Company’s forthcoming Annual Report on Form 10-K. The segment and product line reorganizations do not impact the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements.
