Roper Technologies’ 2Q16 revenue at a glance
Roper Technologies’ (ROP) 2Q16 revenue was $934 million, nearly 2.1% below Market consensus of $954 million. Revenue for the quarter increased 4.7% due to acquisitions when compared to 2Q15.
But 2Q16 organic revenues declined 2.4%. In 2Q16, the revenues were impacted by the oil and gas segment, whose revenues were worse than expected.
The underperformance in the macro industrial segment, particularly in machinery and oil and gas equipment sales, led to sales erosion. ROP’s management expects oil and gas headwinds to continue in the second half of 2016.
