What impacted FMC Technologies’ margin?
- The company’s margin is impacted by lower subsea revenue due to lower inbound orders. It’s primarily due to decreased activity in FMC Technologies’ Schilling Robotics and Multi Phase Meters businesses.

- It was impacted by merger transaction and integration costs related to the pending merger with Technip.
Why did Technip’s margin improve?
- strong vessel utilization in the Subsea segment
- cost reduction – by 3Q16, Technip achieved ~90% of its cost savings objective of 1 billion euros in 2016
Will the merger benefit from Technip’s improved guidance?
