Press Release:

Graham Corporation (NYSE: GHM) (“GHM” or the “Company”), is a global leader in the design and manufacture of mission-critical fluid, power, heat transfer, and vacuum technologies for the defense, space, energy, and process industries, today reported financial results for its third quarter ended December 31, 2023 (“third quarter fiscal 2024”).  Results include approximately two months of operations from the P3 Technologies, LLC (“P3”) acquisition, which was completed on Nov. 9.  

“Third quarter results were strong and we believe further demonstrated the continued execution of our strategy that is centered on driving quality top-line growth with margin accretive projects in order to improve our future earnings power,” commented Daniel J. Thoren, President and Chief Executive Officer.  “There were several highlights during the quarter, which included improved financial performance with expanded gross and adjusted EBITDA margins1, strong bookings which drove record backlog of nearly $400 million, and a new lower cost, more flexible credit facility.

“Equally noteworthy was the acquisition of P3, a strategic bolt-on business that is already enhancing our turbomachinery solutions and Graham’s margin profile.  Importantly, our strong cash generation during the quarter enabled us to pay off nearly all the debt utilized in acquiring P3.”

Mr. Thoren concluded, “We believe our business is in a much-improved position given the strategic and necessary actions taken over the last few years.  As we look forward, we are confident we can continue to execute our strategy and capitalize on the many opportunities in front of us.  We are also focused on further elevating GHM by driving a collaborative spirit across our brands, leveraging best practices, and progressing employee development in support of our core capabilities.”
