Embraer S.A. ERJ is slated to report third-quarter 2022 results on Nov 11 before market open.
In the last reported quarter, the company delivered an earnings surprise of 520%. In the trailing four quarters, the company delivered an average earnings surprise of 167.62%.
Factors to Consider
A solid order backlog and strength in the orders of executive aviation must have contributed to Embraer’s third-quarter revenues. Also, an improvement in orders from the defense line of business is expected to have contributed to Embraer’s third-quarter 2022 revenues.
Meanwhile, the improved performance expected from the service and support business unit might have aided ERJ’s overall third-quarter revenues.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for third-quarter revenues is pegged at $1.20 billion, suggesting growth of 24.8% from the year-ago quarter.
From the earnings perspective, the product and service mix pricing and the overall operational performance, including tax efficiencies, might have contributed to Embraer’s overall third-quarter earnings. Also, Embraer’s continuous efforts to deleverage its balance sheet may have weighed down the interest expense of the company, thus benefiting the bottom line in the soon-to-be-reported quarter.
Moreover, the deliveries of aircraft are projected to be more concentrated in the second half of 2022, buoyed by improved economic conditions lately. This may have aided the margins of the company, which must have contributed to its third-quarter earnings.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for third-quarter earnings is pegged at 15 cents per share, indicating an improvement of 183.3% from the prior-year reported figure.
