Ecology And Environment, Inc., Second Quarter Earnings Up Substantially Vs. Last Year

LANCASTER, N.Y., March 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ecology and Environment, Inc., (E & E) (Nasdaq:EEI) reported net income of $1.9 million or $.45 per share for the second quarter of fiscal year 2013, an increase of $1.4 million or 280% from the net income of $0.5 million or $.12 per share reported in the second quarter of the prior year. Net income also improved for the first six months of fiscal year 2013 from $1.7 million to $2.2 million.

Consolidated revenues for the second quarter of fiscal year 2013 were $36.2 million, a decrease of $4.0 million or 10% from the $40.2 million reported in the second quarter of fiscal year 2012. However, revenue less subcontract costs, a key metric for the Company, were $30.7 million for the current quarter, relatively unchanged compared to the second quarter of fiscal year 2012 and up slightly on a sequential basis for the last two quarters where they were $29.8 million in the first quarter of 2013 and $29.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.

"We are starting to see an improvement in operations and in earnings over the past few quarters," said E & E president and CEO Kevin Neumaier. "By their nature these are somewhat lumpy from quarter to quarter. With a stabilizing and slow improvement in revenue less subcontracts and some cost reductions, earnings are improving. Over the longer term we are seeing a number of signs of improvement in our markets."
