GSE Systems Announces 2012 Fourth Quarter And Full Year Financial Results

Stocks in this article: GVP

GSE Systems, Inc. (“GSE” or “the Company”) (NYSE MKT: GVP), a global energy services solutions provider, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.

Jim Eberle, Chief Executive Officer of GSE, commented, “Although gross profit improved as a percentage of revenue in Q4 2012 and we received a $9.1 million change order from our Slovakian customer, we incurred a loss in the quarter due to numerous factors, including lower total revenues, investments in various sales and marketing initiatives and a new global ERP system, and changes in the fair value of contingent consideration related to prior year acquisitions.

“Our financial position remained strong at year-end, with cash and equivalents of $22.4 million, or $1.22 per diluted share, and no long-term debt. Net cash provided by operating activities totaled $3.7 million in 2012, up $2.2 million from 2011, and our backlog rose to $51.9 million at December 31, 2012. During 2012, we successfully diversified the industries we serve, including placing a greater emphasis on the fossil, process, and training & education industries. Nuclear project revenue comprised 59% of total revenues in 2012, down from 68% in 2011, while projects associated with the training & education industry represented 10.1% of GSE’s 2012 total revenues, up from 6.5% in 2011.”

Mr. Eberle concluded, “2013 will be a pivotal year for GSE. While domestic and international markets remain challenging, we continue to focus on a number of pathways to pursue and capture new business. We believe that the statistics associated with long-term global energy demand, new plant construction, and aging workforces are indisputable. We will continue to serve our traditional customer base with full-scope simulators, pursue projects that combine our high fidelity simulation capabilities with training content and new visualization technology to provide totally integrated training solutions for the new workforce, and expand the use of high fidelity simulation beyond training to help with plant design, control system design and verification, and control room human factors design. At the same time, we are actively engaged in the purusit of M&A opportunities in the U.S. and abroad that are both supportive of and complementary to our position as a global energy services solutions provider.”
