ENGlobal Reports Improved Results for Second Quarter 2019


Houston, Aug. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ENGlobal (NASDAQ:ENG), a leading provider of engineered modular solutions, today reported that for the second quarter ended June 29, 2019, the company had a net loss of $517,000, or $(.02) per diluted share, on revenue of $13,621,000, compared to a net loss of $992,000, or $(.04) per diluted share, on revenue of $13,872,000 for the same period in 2018.

The company’s Q2 2019 revenue grew 12% over Q1 2019, and its net loss was reduced by $457,000 over the same sequential periods. The sequential revenue improvement was primarily the result of the company’s ongoing strategic business transition from that as an engineering design services and staffing provider to a supplier of higher-value, complete modular systems.

For the first six months of 2019, the company had a net loss of $1,491,000, or $(.05) per diluted share, on revenue of $25,784,000, compared to a net loss of $2,192,000, or $(.08) per diluted share, on revenue of $27,059,000 for the first half of 2018.

A major factor in the company’s reduced net loss in the three- and six-month 2019 periods was reductions in SG&A expenses of 15 percent and 13 percent, respectively.

Chairman and CEO William A. Coskey, P.E., said, “ENGlobal’s complete modular systems not only create numerous efficiencies for our customers but also utilize all of our Company’s internal skills and resources. We are benefiting from business alliances previously formed with major process technology and construction firms, but also have a growing business development program of our own. As a result of these efforts, we are optimistic that one or more of our larger modular system proposals will be successful before the end of the year.”

The CEO added, “The key to success for ENGlobal is additional scale for our business. We expect to enjoy improved revenue growth in the second half of the year due to our growing success in performing services on larger, higher-revenue projects than in the past. Effectively, we are transitioning from our historical work on thousands of engineering-only projects per year that averaged around $50,000 in revenue each, toward working on much larger scopes of work.”

Mr. Coskey also said that the recent hiring of former Honeywell UOP executive Michael Clark, as well as several prominent in-house process engineers, designers and project managers, is expected to help the company fuel the increased revenue growth expected in the second half of this year and beyond.

Looking forward to 2020, Mr. Coskey said he believed that the current transition “has the potential to significantly increase our revenue while creating more favorable profit margins and improved earnings compared to 2019.”
