Global Power Reports on Delay in Schedule for Financial Reporting

Required to segregate Product Solutions into two reporting segments

IRVING, Texas, Feb. 24, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Power Equipment Group Inc. (OTC:GLPW) (“Global Power” or the “Company”) reported today that, after consultation with its auditors, it has determined that its Mechanical Solutions and Electrical Solutions segments do not meet the required criteria to be aggregated into the Product Solutions reportable segment. 

The Company will be reporting the following three segments: 

  • Services focuses on providing nuclear maintenance, construction and specialty services to the nuclear utility industry and also provides maintenance, modification and construction services to the industrial market, pulp and paper, and fossil fuel utility businesses. 
  • Mechanical Solutions designs, engineers and manufactures a comprehensive portfolio of equipment for utility-scale natural gas turbines.  Its focus is on filter houses, inlet and exhaust systems, diverter dampers, selective catalytic reduction systems (commonly referred to as “SCR”), auxiliary control skids and enclosures, expansion joints, air filtration elements, retrofit and upgrade solutions.
  • Electrical Solutions focuses on custom engineering and manufacturing of integrated control house systems, engine generator packages and enclosures, industrial tanks and custom-engineered equipment skids for the energy, oil and gas, digital data storage and electrical industries.

As a result of the change in its reporting structure and final revisions to the document, Global Power will not be able to report its 2015 financial results and audited restated 2013 and 2014 financials in February 2017, as previously planned.  The Company believes it will be able to make the necessary changes and file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for 2015 (the “2015 10-K”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission within the next few weeks.  Changes related to the reporting of three segments will need to be carried throughout the 2015 10-K including the annual financial statements and related information for 2015, 2014 and 2013 in addition to the quarterly and year-to-date financial statements and related information for the first three quarters of 2015 and 2014. 

Global Power plans to provide sufficient notice regarding the scheduling of a teleconference for investors and analysts prior to the filing of the 2015 10K and financial results news release. 

The Company also no longer expects to report its 2016 financial results and become current with its financial reporting obligations by the end of March 2017 because of the further delay in the preparation of the 2015 10-K.  Global Power expects to provide an update regarding its expected timing for the reporting of its financial results for 2016 when it reports 2015 financial results.

In addition, more information may arise during the course of the Company’s previously-announced ongoing accounting review of its previously issued financial statements that would require the Company to make additional adjustments or revisions or to restate further such financial statements.  The time required to complete the financial statements and accounting review may cause our results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements.  Other important factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements are discussed in our filings with the SEC, including the section of our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 9, 2015 titled “Risk Factors.”  Except as may be required by applicable law, we undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, and we caution you not to rely upon them unduly.
