WM Argyle Asks Broadwind to Disclose Profitability Guidance, Too
April 21, 2023 at 14:50 PM EDT
MILWAUKEE, April 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WM Argyle Fund, LLC (“WM Argyle” or the “Fund”), one of the largest investors in Broadwind, Inc. (NASDAQ: BWEN) (“Broadwind” or the “Company”), today responded to Broadwind’s pre-announcement of first quarter 2023 results and full-year revenue and adjusted EBITDA guidance.
Throughout its history, Broadwind has made a habit of producing revenue that never turns into profits. We believe Broadwind is repeating this pattern again. It announced a marginal increase in its guidance for full-year revenue and adjusted EBITDA but said nothing about net income. Revenue without profit is meaningless. If the Company is truly confident in its ability to execute and deliver value for shareholders, it should issue guidance for 2023 net income, as well.
Broadwind’s announcement reinforces our conviction that the execution risk under the current Board is simply too great. Shareholders should demand change and vote the GREEN proxy card to support WM Argyle’s director nominees.
