TAMPA — A facility in Ponca City, Okla., owned by Tampa-based Sykes Enterprises Inc. was damaged by a microburst last Friday. No injuries were reported, but the facility will be shut down for five business days.

Sykes estimates that the facility generates monthly revenues of $800,000, with 250 of the 400 total workstations within the building currently being utilized. But a five-day shutdown for one Oklahoma facility should not have a material impact on the company's financial statement, after Sykes earned $1.2 billion in revenues in 2010.

Sykes lost $10.2 million last year, caused largely by losses suffered through its operations in Argentina. The company expects to earn $50 million in 2011 profits.
