Hermiz said Shiloh had been awarded approximately $300 million in new business over the past few months and remain optimistic despite market uncertainties. “We expect our preemptive actions and restructuring initiatives will continue to mitigate market softness and contribute to our profitability,” he said in a statement.

“As we look toward the second half, we expect to deliver full year guidance and are raising the mid-point of our adjusted EBITDA range."

During the three-month period ending April 30, 2019, net income in 1Q was $1.1 million or $0.05 per share, on total revenue of $273.4 million. Analysts on average estimated a loss of around $0.03 per share on revenue of $286.8 million.

Over the same period a year prior, the company reported income of $4 million, or $0.17 per share, on revenue of $297.3 million.

Shiloh is maintaining its 2019 guidance for revenue to range from $1 billion to $1.2 billion.
