Apogee Enterprises Inc.’s fiscal 2018 first-quarter revenues of $272.3 million were up 10 percent versus the prior-year period, according to the company’s latest financial release. Operating income of $24.1 million was down 8 percent before adjustments.

Apogee’s adjusted operating income of $26.8 million was up 2 percent compared to the same period a year ago, and operating margin was 8.9 percent, or 9.9 percent adjusted.

“Quarterly results were impacted by factors that were largely anticipated, including lower architectural services revenues,” said Apogee CEO Joseph F. Puishys. “We also experienced planned startup costs for the new architectural glass capabilities, which are now largely behind us. The first shipments from this new line occurred on schedule late in the quarter.”

“In the last six months we’ve made significant progress in our journey to deliver consistently solid performance regardless of economic conditions,” he added. “We’ve completed acquisitions of EFCO and Sotawall, while growing our position in the mid-size building and retrofit sectors. We also continue to introduce new products and our existing businesses have been further penetrating newer geographies.”

The company’s architectural glass segment, comprised of Viracon, saw revenues of $97.7 million, which were up 5 percent on mid-size project growth in the United States. Operating income was $9.3 million, down 2 percent. Operating margin was 9.5 percent, compared to 10.2 percent.

The architectural framing systems division, consisting of Wausau, Sotawall, EFCO, Tubelite, Alumicor and Linetec, recorded revenues of $110.5 million, which were up 36 percent, including the addition of Sotawall and 8-percent growth from the other segment businesses. Operating income grew to $12.0 million, up 17 percent, and adjusted operating income of $14.0 million was up 37 percent. Operating margin was 10.8 percent, or 12.7 percent adjusted, compared to 12.6 percent. According to Apogee, this segment’s backlog grew $10 million from the fiscal 2017 fourth quarter to $255.1 million.

The company’s architectural services segment, comprised of Harmon, saw revenues of $50.2 million, which were down 20 percent. According to Apogee, this was expected due to timing of project activity. Operating income was $0.8 million, down 75 percent. Operating margin was 1.6 percent, compared to 5.1 percent. Segment backlog grew almost $40 million from the fiscal 2017 fourth quarter to $292.9 million.
