ENGlobal Reports Second Quarter Charge To Earnings

HOUSTON, July 21, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ENGlobal (Nasdaq:ENG), a leading provider of energy-related project delivery solutions, today reported that its earnings for the second quarter ended June 30, 2010 will reflect an after tax charge of approximately $1.8 million resulting from reserves taken against long term claim receivable for services provided in 2008 to Bigler, LP ("Bigler"), a Texas-based chemical company. The one-time charge is calculated on a net basis, after adjustment for taxes. There will be no impact on prior or future quarters. 

The dispute involved a project to design and build improvements to the Bigler plant and terminals operations. As a result of non-payment, the Company was one of several firms to file a materialman's and mechanic's lien on the property on which the services were performed, but was an unsecured creditor. In October 2009, Bigler filed for Bankruptcy protection. 

The Chapter 11 petition listed assets of $233 million and debt of $151 million. However, in an auction held on June 16, 2010, the bankruptcy trustee sold all of the assets for an aggregate of only $58.5 million, all of which was used to pay secured creditors. ENGlobal now believes it is unlikely to recover the $2.9 million that Bigler owes. 

The Company is scheduled to announce its second quarter 2010 earnings and will hold a conference call to discuss the Company's performance on August 5, 2010.
