ENGlobal Enters Agreement To Sell Its Field Solutions Segment

HOUSTON, Sept. 10, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ENGlobal Corporation (Nasdaq:ENG), a leading provider of energy-related project delivery solutions, announced today that a subsidiary has entered into a definitive agreement to sell substantially all of the assets of its Field Solutions segment to Steele & Company, LP based in Tyler, Texas. ENGlobal's Field Solutions segment includes its Right of Way and Inspection divisions, primarily serving pipeline and electric power operating companies. The purchase price will be approximately $15 million, consisting of approximately $10 million in cash at closing to ENGlobal and a $5 million promissory note payable to ENGlobal over four years. In addition, the definitive agreement provides for a purchase price adjustment based on the net working capital of the business as of closing.

Once the transaction is finalized, Mr. David Sinclair, Executive Vice President of the Field Solutions segment, will become President of the newly formed entity, Steele Land & Inspection. LLC. Mr. Sinclair has over 30 years of Right of Way and land management experience in both domestic and international assignments for the pipeline industry.

"The sale of the Field Solutions segment is important to ENGlobal and serves as a win-win for all parties," said William A. Coskey, P.E., ENGlobal's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Brandon Steele and his team possess a rich heritage and successful operating history in our industry. Both our valued Field Solutions clients as well as personnel in this group are going to be served by a strong, vibrant and honorable organization. Finally, for ENGlobal and our shareholders, this transaction is expected to be a positive step - both in terms of financial liquidity and for our strategic engineering and automation focus going forward."

"The acquisition of ENGlobal's Land and Inspection divisions is a solid strategic fit and allows us to undertake a variety of energy infrastructure projects across the United States," said Brandon Steele, Steele & Company's Chairman of the Board. "In addition, the continuity of the management team will enable us to continue operations with very little disruption. We are confident that the combined portfolio under the Steele name will be well positioned to capitalize on meaningful opportunities in the growing energy marketplace."
