SAN LEANDRO, Calif., March 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Energy Recovery, Inc. (Nasdaq:ERII), a global leader in harnessing reusable energy from industrial fluid flows and pressure cycles, announced today its unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2012.  In the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company achieved net revenue of $15.1 million, representing one of the strongest revenue quarters in the Company's history. Due to five mega-project shipments in the current period, four to the Middle East and one to North Africa, the Company attained net revenue growth of $9.0 million, or 147%, from the fourth quarter of 2011 to the fourth quarter of 2012. Comparatively, the fourth quarter of 2011 contained no revenue for mega-project shipments, with all revenue attributable instead to OEM and aftermarket sales.   Strong revenue in the current period was reflective of overall growth in the desalination market, which compared favorably to depressed market activity in 2011 caused by the persistent effects of the global economic crisis and geopolitical events in the Middle East. In this growing market, the Company realized sizeable gains in market share due to significant awards for large desalination projects around the world. Complementing the increase in mega-project activity was substantial improvement in OEM and after-market sales.
