Great Lakes Reports First Quarter 2012 Results

“Internationally, we will see significant impact to our results from the Wheatstone project in 2013 and 2014. For 2012, we have identified other international dredging projects that may be a good fit for our vessels, particularly in the Middle East, and we continue to follow the many opportunities in Brazil. We have recently made strategic moves to bolster our international sales and marketing effort as we see an abundance of international opportunities ahead, which we believe can yield better results from a more aggressive approach.

“The demolition business had a strong start to the year, showing that good project execution can begin to improve those projects that had a history of recorded loss reserves under prior management. The new management team in this business is working diligently to add opportunities leading to growth by elevating the range of professional services offered through a more capable support team. The successful partnership of our demolition and dredging businesses is key to our Company’s growth as evidenced by the recent focus on bridge demolition and salvage work required under some projects, which was formerly sub-contracted outside the Company. Additionally, our dredging and demolition business collaborating with our TerraSea joint venture on new prospects adds to the list of opportunities.”

Mr. Biemeck concluded, “Over the past few years we have deferred providing guidance until the second quarter earnings announcement. This year, we feel due to the level and strength of our backlog that we can provide guidance now for the full year. We currently forecast Adjusted EBITDA from operations to be in range of $93 - $100 million for the full year 2012. Exclusive of the gains on the sale of assets in 2011, this would result in double digit growth over 2011. This requires strong results for the remainder of the year, but our 2012 plan and current backlog, as well as the focus and dedication of our leaders throughout the organization, support our optimism for achieving these results. We believe opportunities for further growth in our financial results will appear starting in 2013. As always, we thank the Great Lakes dredging and demolition teams for their continued efforts in providing world class service and delivering strong results for our shareholders.”
