GR Engineering eyes strong growth for FY22

Investors are driving up GR Engineering shares following the release of upgraded revenue guidance by the company.

In its statement, GR Engineering advised that favourable trading conditions have continued to run into the new financial year.

As a result, the company upgraded its revenue guidance for the period ending 30 June 2022. It expects its full-year revenue to come in between $540 million and $560 million, reflecting a sizeable increase.

Originally, GR Engineering had forecast FY22 revenue for the same period to be around $440 million to 460 million.

GR Engineering managing director Geoff Jones touched on the company’s improved revenue guidance, saying:

GR Engineering is forecasting significant growth on the record results achieved in FY21. The pipeline of ongoing and near-term work is growing and provides increased revenue and earnings visibility for both FY22 and FY23, enhancing GR Engineering’s ability to deliver returns to its shareholders.
