Read MoreHide Full Article

Oceaneering (OII - Free Report) reported a second-quarter 2022 adjusted profit of 7 cents per share, lagging the Zacks Consensus Estimate of a profit of 14 cents. This underperformance was largely due to weaker results in certain segments.

Moreover, the bottom line worsened compared to the year-ago quarter’s profit of 10 cents per share. This can be attributed to lower year-over-year revenues from the Integrity Management & Digital Solutions and Aerospace and Defense Technologies units and an increase in expenses.

Oceaneering’s total quarterly revenues of $524 million beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $521 million and increased approximately 5.2% from the year-ago sales of $498.2 million.
