Preliminary Outlook for 2005
Given the initial investment in the professionals described above and their expected ramp-up time, FTI presently anticipates operating results for the first quarter of 2005 to be similar to the fourth quarter of 2004, absent the one-time charges and benefits. The company expects improved results for the remainder of 2005, and presently anticipates revenues for the full year to range from $460.0 to $480.0 million, and earnings per share to range from approximately $1.20 to $1.30 for 2005, prior to acquisitions. FTI expects to be able to provide a more complete outlook for 2005, including additional detail by business segment, in its year-end press release scheduled for release at the close of business Wednesday, February 16, 2005 and conference call at 11:00 a.m. Eastern time on Thursday, February 17, 2005.
