Foster Wheeler AG reported a loss from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2013 of $37.2 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, compared with income from continuing operations of $18.6 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2012.
 
Highlights: 
-26% increase in Q4 2013 scope revenues in Global E&C Group versus average quarter of 2012
-Second consecutive quarter of record-level scope backlog in Global E&C Group
-59% increase in Q4 2013 scope new orders in Global Power Group versus average quarter of 2012
-Q4 2013 results from continuing operations impacted by discrete items
 
Income/loss from continuing operations in both quarterly periods was impacted by net asbestos-related provisions, as detailed in an attached table. Excluding such items from both quarterly periods, the adjusted income from continuing operations in the fourth quarter of 2013 was $2.8 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared with $41.3 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter.
 
Three additional items had an unfavorable non-cash impact on adjusted income from continuing operations in the fourth quarter of 2013: a pretax impairment charge of $22.4 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, associated with a partially owned waste-to-energy facility in the company’s Global Engineering and Construction Group; a pretax charge of $15.1 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, for a restructuring in the Global Power Group associated with an organizational realignment designed to drive further efficiencies and strengthen the Group’s focus on environmental and industrial products; and a $10.7 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, provision associated with a tax audit in a non-U.S. jurisdiction. 
 
Excluding the impact of the these three items and asbestos, income from continuing operations in the fourth quarter of 2013 was $47.3 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, compared with $44.8 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, in the average quarter of 2012.
 
For the full-year 2013, income from continuing operations was $96.9 million, or $0.96 per diluted share, compared with $149.2 million, or $1.39 per diluted share, for 2012. Excluding the asbestos provisions from both years, adjusted income from continuing operations for 2013 was $127.1 million, or $1.25 per diluted share, compared with $179.1 million, or $1.66 per diluted share, in 2012.
