Upgrading our rating to Outperform. We have raised our investment rating to Outperform based on an increasingly favorable cash flow growth profile. With the new greenfield plant construction in Washington, Missouri expected to be completed in fiscal year 2025, we expect the facility to contribute to top-line growth while capital expenditures associated with organic growth initiatives could decline in fiscal year 2026. Once its effort to deleverage the balance sheet is complete, we think AZZ could more aggressively pursue acquisitions to enable the company to expand geographically and broaden its product and service offerings.

New manufacturing facility in Washington, Missouri. AZZ Precoat Metals’ new 250,000 square foot manufacturing facility is expected to contribute to earnings beginning in fiscal year 2026. Approximately 75% of the facility’s production is already committed that we estimate could generate approximately $60 million in revenue. We expect EBITDA margins to be at the high end of the company’s stated 17% to 22% range for the precoat metals segment.
