The Company operates through two business segments: operating disposal facilities and non-operating disposal facilities. US Ecology, Inc. is headquartered in Boise, Idaho. " (10/2/2017)
- 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We believe the company’s lighting business likely outperformed end market weighted growth, given a heavy SKU mix in retail and Industrial canopy lighting markets where we believe recent weakness has been concentrated. The Atlas integration is on track, with revenue exceeding our forecast, and we expect improving momentum in 2018 as cross channel selling gains traction. We reiterate our But rating and $13 target. F3Q17 results reflected strong performance in weak markets. LSI reported F3Q17 Rev/adj-EPS/Adj-EBITDA of $78.1m/$0.01/$2.8m vs our 81.3m/$0.03/$3.1m estimates. Gross margins were essentially inline at 23.9% [excluding $312k restructuring costs] vs our 24% estimate, and reflect the heavy weight of commodity and component cost escalation including steel aluminum, copper, and drivers. Modest revenue weakness was partially offset by tight SG&A controls, coming in $0.8m below our model. Organic growth came in at 1% excluding $6.7m from Atlas." (4/28/2017)
