The bottom line also missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $0.41. For 2014, Manitowoc cut its guidance for Crane segment revenue at flat to slightly down and Foodservice operating margins to a mid-teens growth, however reiterating other outlook. Manitowoc remains optimistic regarding its new products. In addition, implementation of strategic initiatives and organizational realignment will improve cost structure.
