Flowserve To File 10-K
Flowserve Corp. said it expects to finalize its 2003 financial statements and file its Form 10-K for 2003 with the Securities and Exchange Commission in the next seven days.
The company previously announced on Feb. 3, 2004 its intention to restate its financial results for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2003 and full years 2002, 2001 and 2000.
The company also said that, due to the length of time needed to complete its 2003 financial statements, it now expects to report first quarter 2004 results in May instead of April.
C. Scott Greer, chairman, president and chief executive officer, said, "Preliminary results for the first quarter show stronger bookings and backlog in each of our three business segments compared with the year-ago period coupled with continued good cash flow. We are seeing continued strong activity in our upstream petroleum-related business and improved activity in our refinery-, chemical-, and parts-related businesses."
