Management's Assessment William A. Coskey, P.E., ENGlobal's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated: "ENGlobal's turnaround plan essentially began in the fourth quarter of last year. While the Company experienced a difficult 2012 and continues to face a number of challenges, we are cautiously optimistic about our operations resulting from measures that were implemented in the last six months. During this time, the Company sold two non-strategic businesses, discontinued another, and we are now focused on our core operational segments." Mark A. Hess, ENGlobal's Chief Financial Officer, added: "We are also operating more efficiently and seeing significant margin improvement from our continuing operations. The latter of which is primarily due to ENGlobal's ongoing efforts to significantly reduce overruns on its projects and to improve commercial terms on its contracts. We remain dedicated to reducing our dependence on our working capital credit facility. As a result of the implementation of the above initiatives and the sale of our Field Solutions divisions, we have reduced the level of borrowings under our working capital credit facility to $26.8 million at the end of 2012 and we are currently borrowing significantly below that level."
