Apogee Enterprises, Inc. ( APOG Quick Quote APOG - Free Report) is slated to release first-quarter fiscal 2023 results on Jun 23, before the opening bell. Which Way are the Estimates Headed?
The Zacks Consensus Estimates for Apogee’s earnings per share is pegged at 43 cents for the fiscal first quarter — suggesting year-over-year growth of 2.4%.
Let’s see how things are shaping up for this announcement. Factors at Play
Apogee’s fiscal first-quarter performance is likely to have benefited from solid order activities, robust project backlog and improved end-market demand. Strong demand from new construction activities is anticipated to have been a growth driver. The company’s continued focus on pricing actions, strategy to grow and diversify revenue streams, cost-reduction actions and procurement savings and operational efficiency might have boosted the company’s profitability and margins in the quarter under review.
The Architectural Services segment continues to gain from new projects and focus on building a strong project pipeline, which is likely to have recorded impressive backlog growth in the fiscal first quarter. The Large-Scale Optical segment is anticipated to have benefited from improved demand from the pandemic-induced declines in fiscal 2021. Framing Systems segment might have gained from solid margin expansion, courtesy of the company’s pricing and restructuring actions and the relaunch of Lean to drive plant productivity in the fiscal first quarter. Moreover, the company’s segments have the potential to increase its market share, expand into newer geographies and markets and introduce fresh products. Nevertheless, inflationary pressures, supply-chain disruptions and labor constraints might keep affecting the company’s production levels, impairing its ability to meet demand levels.
