ALVIN, Texas, Oct. 1, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Team, Inc. (NYSE:TISI) today announced financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 ending August 31, 2012.

"We are off to a very good start for fiscal year 2013," said Phil Hawk, Team's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We are especially pleased with our revenue and earnings growth in the quarter given the exceptionally strong first quarter that we enjoyed last year. We are affirming our previously issued earnings guidance for the year of $1.85 to $2.00 per diluted share," said Hawk.

Acquisitions of Inspection businesses

In August 2012, Team's subsidiary, Quest Integrity Group, acquired a specialty remote digital video inspection company based in New Zealand and, earlier today, Team acquired the common stock of TCI Services, Inc., an Oklahoma based company specializing in the inspection and repair of above ground storage tanks. The combined annual revenues for both acquired businesses are approximately $24 million and the total consideration for both is expected to be approximately $25 million, subject to adjustments for working capital true-ups and the future performance of the businesses.
