Raven Industries Provides Update on Filing Timeline

SIOUX FALLS, S.D., Feb. 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Raven Industries, Inc.(NASDAQ:RAVN) announced today that it has begun the process of filing its amended reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and expects to have all quarterly reports for fiscal year 2017 filed prior to the end of the month of February.

The Company filed its amended third quarter fiscal year 2016 Form 10-Q/A and amended fiscal year 2016 Form 10-K/A with the SEC today. The Company expects to file its amended first quarter fiscal year 2017 Form 10-Q/A and second and third quarter fiscal year 2017 Form 10-Q's prior to the end of February 2017. Once this process is complete, the Company expects to return to compliance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5250(c)(1).

When the Company files its third quarter Form 10-Q for fiscal year 2017, it will simultaneously issue its third quarter earnings release and announce the date of its third quarter analyst conference call.

"We look forward to releasing our third quarter financial results and providing an update to our outlook for fiscal year 2017," said Dan Rykhus, President and CEO. "Each quarter this year, including the fourth quarter, we have seen year-over-year growth rates improve sequentially for Applied Technology and Engineered Films, and each has shown relatively strong profit margins. While growth in these two divisions has accelerated relative to the prior year, this has been offset somewhat by the performance of Aerostar. Applied Technology continues to drive market share gains through new product introductions and Engineered Films is benefiting from improved demand in the Energy market, particularly in the fourth quarter. Aerostar challenges existed in the third quarter, but we are addressing the situation and reducing costs where appropriate. We appreciate the patience our shareholders have shown as we complete our restatement process and look forward to discussing in more detail our financial performance later this month," concluded Rykhus.
