Apogee Enterprises Inc.’s second-quarter revenue grew 2% to $325.8 million, compared to $319.5 million in the second quarter of the fiscal year 2021, led by growth in architectural services and large-scale optical.
The company reported a net loss of $0.08 per diluted share, including $20.8 million of pre-tax costs related to previously announced restructuring actions. This compares to $0.67 per diluted share in the prior-year quarter and $0.42 in the first quarter of fiscal 2022.
Adjusted earnings, which exclude the impact of the restructuring costs, were $0.53 per diluted share, compared to $0.73 in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 and $0.42 in the first quarter of fiscal 2022.
“We continued to drive progress in the second quarter, despite on-going challenges in our operating environment,” said Ty R. Silberhorn, chief executive officer. “I am proud of our team’s efforts this quarter, as we delivered sequential adjusted earnings growth compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2022, driven by strong performance in architectural services and large-scale optical. The business also continued to generate solid cash flow, which we used to strengthen our balance sheet and return cash to shareholders. We achieved these gains in the face of significant cost inflation, supply chain challenges, and construction end markets that remain well below pre-pandemic levels.”

Revenue for the large-scale optical segment, was $23.5 million, up from $16.9 million in the second quarter last year, driven by a more favorable sales mix and increased volume, as demand recovered from the impact of COVID.
