Shares were of the small-cap oil engineering firm were slipping $1.59, or 21.3%, to $5.86 in late-morning trading Tuesday.
The charge results primarily from productivity delays and cost overruns on two fixed-price projects in the company's engineering segment.

The oil engineering firm is scheduled to announce its third-quarter earnings results on or before Nov. 14.
