MarineLink
Sunday, August 11, 2013

Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Corporation (GLDD) the largest provider of dredging services in the United States and a major provider of commercial and industrial demolition and remediation services, report financial results for the 3 and 6 months ended June 30, 2013.

Jonathan Berger, Chief Executive Officer stated, “For the three months ended June 30, 2013, Great Lakes reported Revenue of $152.9 million, a Net Loss of $25.2 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $11.0 million. Included in the Net Loss is a $21.5 million noncash charge for goodwill impairment related to the demolition segment.

“Our dredging segment won $346 million or 62% of the domestic bid market through the first six months of 2013. This win rate, driven by the award of the first phase of the PortMiami project and capturing 63% of the coastal protection market, sets the stage for a busy second half of this year and into 2014. Our Terra Contracting and Rivers & lakes teams have commenced working together on a project in the Midwest valued at approximately $30 million. We also began execution on two of the larger projects in our demolition segment backlog, with one scheduled for completion in 2013 and the other continuing into next year.

“We are making structural changes within the organization to bring more operational skills into executive leadership. We continue to focus on our NASDI subsidiary in our demolition segment. We are also upgrading our project management capabilities. We have dedicated significant resources at corporate and in the field to improve execution and internal controls and we have made strides since the beginning of the year. We are also evaluating opportunities to combine operations to reduce support costs, and focusing on improving margins through more selective bidding and better project execution.

“As noted, we recorded a noncash goodwill impairment of $21.5 million in the second quarter for our demolition segment. We are committed to validating our strategy for this business by year end.”
