Reports Q4 revenue $1.5B, consensus $1.46B. "We are proud of our strong fourth-quarter performance. Despite challenges posed by the COVID-19 resurgence, we continued to successfully navigate the pandemic and deliver shareholder value through our focus on customers, the continued proliferation of IRX, and our employees' unwavering commitment amid an uncertain environment," said Vicente Reynal, chief executive officer. "We delivered on our commitments in 2020. Our $150 million employee equity grant along with our strategic commitment of becoming a leader in sustainability has strengthened our employee resolve and continues to differentiate us as an employer of choice. We closed on the transformational Ingersoll Rand Industrial business transaction in March and delivered better than expected Year 1 synergy benefits. We continue to reshape our portfolio with the recent acquisition of Tuthill Vacuum and Blower Systems and the agreement to sell a majority interest in the High Pressure Solutions Segment, which will materially reduce our upstream oil and gas exposure. While we are motivated by our progress, there is more work to do to fuel long-term growth and position Ingersoll Rand, and our shareholders, for continued success."
