ENGlobal Announces 1Q 2021 Financial Results

Investor Conference Call Scheduled Today at 9:00 am Eastern

HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / May 6, 2021 / ENGlobal Corporation (NASDAQ:ENG), a leading provider of complete project solutions for renewable and traditional energy, today announced that, for the first quarter of 2021 ended March 27, it achieved net income of $46,000, or $.00 per share, on revenue of $12,449,000, compared to net income of $1,101,000, or $.04 per share, on revenue of $19,260,000 in the first quarter ended March 28, 2020.

“Our company, like most others in the energy industry, has been materially affected by the reaction to the COVID-19 epidemic,” said chief executive Mark A. Hess. “We were fortunate that we were able to work through the backlog in place last year when the pandemic started.

“Currently, though, we see strong indications that our top and bottom line performance should improve as the year progresses. First, we are investing heavily in our business development efforts and we expect these efforts to produce renewed business opportunities. Second, thanks to the widespread availability and utilization of COVID-19 vaccines, there has been significant progress made in controlling the spread of the pandemic. This, in turn, is allowing people to go back to in-person work, which will help increase the demand for our clients’ products.

“Additionally, we see signs that our market opportunities in green energy sectors such as renewable fuels and solar are continuing to improve. And, we have made further progress in adding to our list of established technology and construction partners, which, of course, makes ENGlobal a more attractive option for prospective clients. As the year progresses, therefore, we expect to have an increased ability to attract high-value contracts.”

The company’s decrease in quarterly revenue was primarily due to the decline in capital and maintenance spending by its client base as a direct result of the negative economic effects upon the energy industry caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. This trend was compounded by personal interaction restrictions that significantly hampered the company’s business development efforts. ENGlobal’s decrease in quarterly net income was primarily due to the company’s decrease in quarterly revenue, partially offset by a $1.7 million employee retention credit recorded in Q1 2021 with no comparable occurrence in Q1 2020.

“We remain highly confident,” he added, “that our strategic shift toward innovative, higher-value, modular engineered process and automation project delivery positions us quite well to achieve steadily improving quarterly results, especially as the market continues to rebound.”
