“I am pleased with the results we achieved in our European Sewer and Water Rehabilitation business as all regions reported revenue growth in the quarter,” Burgess continued. “This was especially true in the U.K., a promising sign for a market that experienced challenging conditions over the last several years. While market conditions remain challenging in many parts of Europe, we continue to make positive changes to our operating structure to ensure we move forward on profitable improvements and return on capital. We continue to face headwinds in our Asia-Pacific region, primarily in our India market, as we experienced continued delays in closing out existing projects and in the award of two new projects in Delhi valued at approximately $16 million. The same can be said for Singapore where the pace of activity has slowed over the short-term, but I expect new project work to commence there over the next few months and in Malaysia where we have significant upcoming bids. Australia, on the other hand, remains a strong market as we tap into additional opportunities not only in Sydney but in other cities, including Melbourne and Brisbane.”“As we near the end of 2011, our attention quickly turns to the growth outlook for the new Aegion Corporation. This announcement formalizes for our stockholders and customers the evolution of Insituform into a larger and broader company focused on the preservation of infrastructure assets in key segments and markets around the world. The acquisitions we made this year have grown our Energy and Mining product and service offering and established our Commercial and Structural group. Both provide Aegion with true platforms for growth in attractive high return segments of the infrastructure market. I am very optimistic about the outlook for these segments, especially with what the fiber-reinforced polymer composite system innovation can bring to the reinforcement of commercial structures, opening a new, high growth, market for Aegion.”
