Management's Assessment

Mark Hess, ENGlobal's Chief Financial Officer, said: “While 2015 was a challenging year due to the severe decline in oil prices and spending cuts in the energy industry, through our service agreements and aggressive project bidding we were able to maintain profitability and a positive future outlook.  It is notable that the Company’s recent positive performance has enabled us to release the valuation allowance on our deferred tax asset that has been in place since 2012.”

Mr. Hess continued, “We maintained solid relationships with our financial partners, had a substantial cash balance throughout the year, and had no borrowings from our working capital lines during 2015.  We enter this year well positioned to seek out both internal and external opportunities to grow our business.”

William Coskey, P.E., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ENGlobal, added: “I would like to thank the outstanding men and women of ENGlobal for their hard work and dedication toward a successful 2015.  We are fortunate as a company to primarily serve midstream and downstream clientele, who have ongoing areas of project activity. Thus far this year we have gotten off to a slow start utilizing our resources; however, awards of new business have been extremely strong. We are well positioned for the challenges ahead, and remain enthusiastic about the opportunities for our Company.”
