Todd Pacific Shipyards Corporation confirmed
today its expected participation, along with Southwest Marine, Inc., San Diego Division, on the team lead by Bath Iron Works, a subsidiary of General Dynamics (GD)
to perform Post Shakedown Availability work ("PSA") on DDG-51 Aegis Destroyers ("Destroyers"). The U.S. Navy contract for this work, which was awarded to Bath Iron Works, includes options for PSA work to be accomplished in Navy homeports of Everett, Washington and Pearl Harbor, HI. Todd Pacific's expected participation will include the performance of the PSA work on between one and three Destroyers that are expected to be homeported in Everett, Washington. The first option, if exercised by the Navy, is anticipated to require work in the first quarter of calendar 2005 and would have a value of approximately $9 million. Any work that the Company performs for Bath Iron Works will
be accomplished under a cost-plus-award-fee subcontract still to be finalized between Bath Iron Works and Todd Pacific. If the Navy stations the second and third Destroyers at Everett and exercises options for PSA work on those ships, the anticipated contract value to Todd for its expected work on all three ships will be approximately $30 million between 2005 and 2007. The PSA work primarily involves the installation of system and equipment upgrades and/or ship alterations as required.
