Smiths Detection, Inc. Reports Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended November 1, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the First Half and Fiscal Year 2015

Smiths Detection, Inc. reported earnings results for the first quarter ended November 1, 2014. For the quarter, the company faced challenging trading conditions across most of its markets reflecting continued constraints on government spending. These resulted in lower underlying revenue and headline operating profit in the first quarter.  The outlook for the first half is for lower underlying revenues and margins while the fiscal year 2015 margins are expected to improve against a weak comparator affected by one-off costs.
