Powell Industries, Inc. (POWL) stock plummeted 18.91 percent to $26.71 in the after-market trading. The company has concluded that its previously issued consolidated financial statements for the second and third quarters of fiscal 2011 contain certain accounting errors originating from its Canadian operations. Accordingly, such financial statements should no longer be relied upon. The company said it will restate its consolidated financial statements for the second and third quarters of fiscal 2011 through the filing of amendments to the previously filed Forms 10-Q. The accounting errors occurred at Powell Canada as a result of inaccurate recording of customer change orders, an erroneous journal entry recorded in accounts payable, incorrect close-out of costs on certain jobs and the application of an incorrect manufacturing overhead rate, which overstated earnings in the second and third quarters. These errors indicate material weaknesses in internal controls over financial reporting. The company is in the process of analyzing the control deficiencies and developing remediation plans. The cumulative effect of these issues will cause a reduction in previously reported net income for the nine months ended June 30, 2011 of about $2.7 million or $0.23 per share.

Powell Industries has taken the following steps to strengthen its financial reporting and project management for its Canadian operations: the company has hired a new Controller for Powell Canada and that individual is currently in place, members of the accounting and operations staff have received additional training, and the company has hired a full time specialist on-site in Canada to evaluate and make recommendations for improvement in the estimating, operations, and project management functions. In addition, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011, the company will record an impairment of the remaining intangible assets recorded in connection with the acquisition of Powell Canada, totaling $7.2 million or $0.61 per share. This non-cash impairment charge is the result of continued losses from Powell Canada, which have delayed and reduced the company's projections for revenues and cash flow going forward.

Powell Industries lowered its fiscal 2011 adjusted earnings guidance to range of $0.51 to $0.56 per share from previous forecast of $1.05 to $1.15 per share. The company now expects its 2011 revenue of about $560 million, compared to previous outlook range of $545 million to $570 million. Street analysts predict profit of $1.07 per share on revenue of $554.53 million for the fiscal 2011.
