Quoting Management: “While our fourth quarter and full year results were consistent with our revised earnings guidance issued in May 2013, we are disappointed that fiscal 2013 was only a ‘near-best’ year for Team and not a ‘new-best’ year,” said Phil Hawk, Team’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We are pleased with our overall revenue growth for the year and quarter, but our expectation for fiscal 2014 is to rebalance our resources and restore the operating leverage that is inherent in our business, while continuing our history of double digit revenue growth.”
