American Electric Technologies Reports 4th Quarter And 2010 Results

The Company's cash position as of December 31, 2010 was $1.4 million and borrowings on the line of credit were $4.0 million versus $1.5 million of cash and $3.0 million of borrowings at September 30, 2010.

Outlook for Fiscal 2011

We continue to see uncertainty in our traditional markets. However, we are now seeing positive signs in some of our business segments including North America land drilling, Gulf Coast industrial services, international power generation, and International marine/offshore drilling, particularly in Brazil.

We believe short term revenues and profitability should remain relatively flat as we continue to balance the tight management of our cost structure and our push for profitability with our goal to become a market leader for the emerging utility-scale solar inverter market. We believe that our continued investments in renewable energy product and market development will begin to bear fruit in mid-year 2011. 

Detailed information on the financial results for the year and quarter ended December 31, 2010 is included in the company's Annual Report on Form 10-K which will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on or before March 31, 2011.
