What’s in Store for ABM Industries (ABM) in Q3 Earnings?

ABM Industries Inc. ABM is scheduled to report third-quarter fiscal 2020 results on Sep 8, after market close.

Let’s check out how things have shaped up for the announcement.

Q3 Expectations

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the company’s third-quarter fiscal 2020 revenues is pegged at $1.44 billion, indicating a 12.6% year-over-year decline. The expected downside can be attributed to coronavirus-related disruptions, facility closures, and service-scope changes, mainly within the Aviation, Technical Solutions and Education segments.  These, however, might have been partially offset by huge demand for COVID-19-related Work Orders (tags) in the Business & Industry, Technology & Manufacturing and Education segments.

The consensus mark for earnings stands at 43 cents per share, suggesting a significant 28.3% decline year on year.
