Flowserve Corporation FLS recently secured a contract from Texas-based TMGcore, Inc. to supply industrial process pumps. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed by the parties involved.
Flowserve’s share price increased 1.9% yesterday, eventually closing the session at $29.6.
Inside the Headlines
Per the deal, Flowserve, in collaboration with AGI Industries, will be responsible for delivering 5,000 units of industrial process pumps to TMGcore. FLS’s pumps will be used in TMGcore’s proprietary and scientifically-built immersion cooling units for circulating dielectric fluids. This will allow temperature reduction of the servers within single-phase immersion-cooled machines.
This partnership fits well with Flowserve’s business development strategy. The deal is also a testimony to FLS's commitment toward driving decarbonization in the society.
Zacks Rank, Price Performance and Earnings Estimate Trend
Flowserve, with a $3.9-billion market capitalization, currently carries a Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell). FLS stands to benefit from higher bookings, a strong backlog level and its realignment program in the quarters ahead. However, FLS has been experiencing supply-chain challenges, logistics problems and labor issues for a while. High debt levels can be detrimental as well.
