Dover says Q2 impacted by diminished demand, inventory reductions CEO Robert Livingston commented, "In the quarter, we continued to be impacted by diminished demand and customer inventory reductions in our North American Energy markets. We were also affected by reduced customer capital spending in retail refrigeration, oil & gas related pump markets and our industrial businesses within Engineered Systems. These factors offset the benefits of our broad-based cost containment initiatives and restructuring actions, causing our overall results to be below our prior expectations."
