Perma-Fix Announces Financial Results For The Third Quarter Of 2010

ATLANTA, Nov. 4, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Perma-Fix Environmental Services, Inc. (Nasdaq:PESI) today announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010.

Dr. Louis F. Centofanti, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We experienced a decrease in revenue for the third quarter of 2010 due to a difficult DOE budget cycle and the timing of remediation projects. DOE spending on waste treatment at our facilities continued to lag behind spending for on-site services. Nevertheless, our revenue increased 9.4% year-to-date, as our on-site revenue related to the DOE's Hanford Site increased by $2.1 million for the third quarter and $7.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 versus the same periods last year."  

"In October 2010 we announced our plans to sell the remaining Industrial Segment facilities and operations which accounted for 8% of our total revenue and 4% of total assets in 2009. We have entered into letters of intent to sell our Perma-Fix of Ft. Lauderdale, Inc. (PFFL) and Perma-Fix of Orlando, Inc. (PFO) industrial facilities, subject to due diligence by the buyer, negotiations and execution of definitive agreements and other conditions. If completed, the letter of intent pertaining to the PFFL facility states that the buyer will purchase the facility for $6 million, subject to certain adjustments, and will purchase the PFO facility for $2 million, subject to certain adjustments. This sale would enable us to focus our resources on growing the Nuclear Segment."  

"As we approach 2011, we have a variety of new initiatives under way. Foremost and most near-term is the expansion of our capabilities to handle higher activity waste such as transuranic (TRU) waste. We believe we are uniquely positioned to address this market. We are in the final stages of completing a demonstration at our Perma-Fix Northwest facility to handle this waste stream. In conjunction with our rail spur expansion at this site, we believe that this should enable us to increase this waste stream in 2011. At the same time, we remain focused on expanding our on-site initiatives and broadening the scope of our services to address different aspects of the nuclear fuel cycle."
