Worthington reports Q3 fiscal 2019 results


Worthington Industries, Inc. has reported net sales of $874.4m and net earnings of $25.8m, for its fiscal 2019 third quarter (Q3) ended 28th February (2019).

The current quarter was negatively impacted due to a replacement programme related to certain composite hydrogen fuel tanks, resulting in a pre-tax charge of $13m.

The current quarter included estimated inventory holding losses of $10.8m in steel processing and a pre-tax net restructuring gain of $11.2m related to the sale of certain assets in the pressure cylinder business.

“We beleive that we are through the worst of the recent cost pressures and I’m proud of the way our teams have executed,”
