“In the fiscal second quarter, we achieved better than expected growth in our Agriculture segment and our Construction segment achieved its fourth consecutive quarter of increased quarter-over-quarter top and bottom line results,” said Titan Machinery chairman and CEO David Meyer. “These positives were met with lower results from our International segment, which was impacted by unfavorable conditions and a tough comparison to the prior year.”
