FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) (“FLIR” or the “Company”), a world leader in the design, manufacture, and marketing of intelligent sensing technologies, today announced its preliminary expected revenue results for the second quarter 2020.
Based on preliminary financial information, FLIR expects revenue for the second quarter 2020 to be approximately $480 million. The preliminary revenue estimate reflects increased demand for thermal cameras used in Elevated Skin Temperature or EST screening in light of COVID-19 and increased volumes for unmanned systems, partially offset by reduced demand in commercial end markets such as maritime and security products as well as delays associated with certain international orders.
The Company will provide a press release with final second quarter 2020 results before market open on August 6, 2020.
