Perma-Fix Announces Financial Results For The Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2010

Stocks in this article: PESI

Operating income for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $2.6 million versus operating income of $4.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2009. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $1.6 million, or $0.03 per share, versus net income of $5.7 million or $0.10 per share, for the same period in 2009.   Net income in 2009 included an adjustment related to our deferred tax asset that had a positive impact of $2.5 million.

The Company had an EBITDA of $3.8 million from continuing operations during the quarter ended December 31, 2010, as compared to EBITDA of approximately $5.2 million for the same period of 2009. The Company defines EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is not a measure of performance calculated in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States ("GAAP"), and should not be considered in isolation of, or as a substitute for, earnings as an indicator of operating performance or cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. The Company believes the presentation of EBITDA is relevant and useful by enhancing the readers' ability to understand the Company's operating performance. The Company's management utilizes EBITDA as a means to measure performance. The Company's measurements of EBITDA may not be comparable to similar titled measures reported by other companies.  The table below reconciles EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, to net income for the three months and twelve months ended December 31, 2010 and 2009.
