Great Lakes Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Corporation (NASDAQ:GLDD), the largest provider of dredging services in the United States and a major provider of commercial and industrial demolition and remediation services, today reported financial results for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012.

Commentary

Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Berger said, “Our third quarter results were hampered by certain factors we will outline. We entered the fourth quarter with scheduled revenues and margin to achieve our previously stated annual goals. Since then the epic Hurricane Sandy has had a significant impact on our expected results for the fourth quarter as we will have lost a total of 25 working days over seven projects because we were forced to move our dredges and support equipment to protected waters. Our operations team and crews did a wonderful job of executing our emergency plans safely and efficiently. We were able to ride out Sandy with minimal damage to our operating equipment and have gotten the projects back up and running quickly. We currently estimate approximately $6 million of revenue and $3 million of gross margin has been pushed into next year, and we will incur $3 million of additional one time expenditures in the fourth quarter due to the storm. We have therefore modified our projected full-year adjusted EBITDA range to $85 to $90 million.

“Hurricane Sandy has significantly affected coastal communities along the East Coast. As a Company, Great Lakes’ thoughts and prayers go out to each and every one of the individuals and families impacted. The dredging industry has performed beach nourishment and shore protection in these markets for decades. We have received positive reports that the Nags Head Beach in North Carolina weathered the storm well as a result of a large beach nourishment project we completed last year. We believe Hurricanes Sandy, Debby, and Isaac should result in increasing focus and demand for supplemental Federal funding critical for coastal restoration and beach projects in the Gulf of Mexico and on the East Coast.
