Flir achieves highest annual revenue in company history

Wilsonville, Or (USA)

Flir Systems, Inc. has announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2017. For the full year, revenue was $1,800.4 million, up 8% compared to $1,662.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2016. Organic revenue growth was 2% with prior year acquisitions contributing approximately 6% of revenue growth in 2017.

Commenting on the results, Jim Cannon, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are pleased with our fourth quarter results, particularly the revenue growth and double-digit adjusted earnings growth. We reached our highest quarterly adjusted operating margin since 2012, finishing a year that saw record levels of revenue and adjusted earnings per share. This was accomplished during a year of transition that included an operational realignment, changes to the management team, and portfolio rationalisation that resulted in the divestment of our Lorex security business. I am proud of our employees and how they have delivered in 2017.”

Mr. Cannon continued, “We have positive momentum as we enter 2018. We are committed to accomplishing our task of exceeding shareholders’ expectations with integrity as we fuel, feed, and focus our businesses, instill a culture of continuous business improvement through the deployment of The Flir Method, and generate cash for accretive high-return investments.”

Flir’s OEM & Emerging Markets segment had $347.2 million of revenue, an increase of 42% over the prior year, which was driven by the addition of the Integrated Imaging Solutions line of business acquired late in the fourth quarter of 2016.
