MISSION WOODS, Kan., Sept. 6, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Layne Christensen Company  (Nasdaq:LAYN) today announced financial results for the fiscal 2013 second quarter (Q2 FY2013) and six months ended July 31, 2012, including a discussion of results of operations by division. 

Revenues for Q2 FY2013 increased $0.3 million, or 0.1%, to $289.6 million from $289.3 million for the fiscal 2012 second quarter ended July 31, 2011, as higher revenues at Layne's Inliner, Geoconstruction and Mineral Exploration Divisions were offset by revenue declines at Heavy Civil and, to a lesser extent, Water Resources. The loss from continuing operations for Q2 FY2013 was $2.9 million, or $0.15 per share, compared to income from continuing operations of $10.3 million, or $0.53 per share, in the same period last year. Income from continuing operations for Q2 FY2013 included a $7.7 million net non-cash charge related to remeasurement of a previously held equity investment to fair value in the Geoconstruction division (discussed below); excluding this charge, income from continuing operations for Q2 FY2013 was $4.8 million, or $0.25 per share. The Water Resources, Inliner, and Mineral Exploration Divisions each operated profitably during Q2 FY2013; however, their performance was offset by the above-referenced non-cash charge and $8.8 million in pre-tax losses at Heavy Civil due to margin pressures and cost overruns that continued into Q2 FY2013. The net loss for Q2 FY2013 was $24.0 million, or $1.23 per diluted share, and included a loss from discontinued operations of $21.1 million, or $1.08 per share. During Q2 FY2013 Layne reclassified its Energy Division as a discontinued operation and is currently negotiating a sale of that business. In connection with the change, Layne recorded an after tax loss on the carrying value of the Energy Division assets of $20.0 million.
