Factors to Consider
Mistras Group’s third-quarter results are likely to gain from a recovery in the energy market.
An improving energy market is expected to have continued benefiting the company’s domestic and Canada businesses.
Its expanded service offerings including rope access and adjacent mechanical are expected to have supported the to-be-reported quarterly performance.
The growing International segment is likely to have benefited the company’s performance in the quarter under review.
Strength of the asset protection software named MISTRAS OneSuite, which offers an ecosystem of integrated software and data service apps, is anticipated to have been a tailwind in the third quarter.
Rising investments in digital, private space and renewable energy markets are likely to have remained a positive factor in the to-be-reported quarter.
Further, Mistras’ subsidiary Onstream previously introduced new tools for the inspection of larger diameter pipes. This might have continued supporting its performance in the quarter under review.
Yet, uncertainties related to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic might get reflected in the upcoming quarterly results.
Also, sluggishness in the aerospace industry due to the pandemic is likely to have remained a concern.
Further, higher selling, general and administrative expenses are expected to have affected its quarterly performance.
