Great Lakes Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results

“With the passage of the transportation bill and the Administration’s announcement regarding East Coast ports, we were very excited to announce our new Articulated Tug Barge (“ATB”) Hopper dredge. As noted in our press release last week, this vessel is a game changer, bringing the ATB technology together with hopper dredging. This new vessel, with greater hopper capacity than any vessel in the U.S. market today, will be used on all types of our dredging work: capital, beach nourishment and maintenance. The time is right for the investment and this new vessel highlights Great Lakes’ continued leadership in innovation in the dredging industry.”

President and Chief Financial Officer Bruce Biemeck said, “As expected, bidding has already picked up in the second half of the year. We see some key projects on the horizon in the domestic market, specifically the deepening project in Miami that we currently expect to be released in the fourth quarter and Gulf Coast restoration projects to be let for bidding in the second half of the year. Our increased working capital investment in pipe will position Great Lakes to lead the bidding on these important projects to restore coastal areas. Finally, the Corps is expected to let to bid several projects in the second half of 2012 related to flood repair on the Mississippi River and its tributaries that rivers & lakes expects to pursue. All of these bidding opportunities in the second half of 2012 are expected to generate another year of record contracts awarded in the domestic dredging bid market.

“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 many opportunities in Brazil. We continue to focus on 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.
