  • April 10, 2015 ( newswire) ENGlobal recently announced that it has been awarded a contract for the engineering and design of a hydrodesulfurization unit to be installed for a major midcontinent refiner. ENGlobal attributed the award of the contract to its ability to deliver key scheduling benefits and efficient cost management services. Work on the project began immediately, and the company expects to complete the project later this year.

    Hydrodesulfurization units are essential to reducing the environmental impact of the use of fuels in automobiles, aircraft, locomotives, ships, power plants and other forms of fuel combustion. By removing sulfur from natural gas and refined petroleum products, sulfur dioxide emissions are minimized and noble metal catalysts used to upgrade octane ratings are better preserved.

    This new contract, as well as the recent announcement of ENGlobal's five-year extension agreement with Xcel Energy, continues to demonstrate the scope and diversity of work performed by the company. This expertise, along with the company's history of providing quality engineering work, has led to ENGlobal's inclusion among the Top 500 engineering design firms of Engineering News Record for more than a decade.

    The company's reputation for excellence has led to significant financial growth in recent years. In 2014, the company recorded revenue of $107.9 million, marking an increase of 21.1 percent from the previous year. Similarly, ENGlobal achieved a net income of $6 million in 2014, outpacing 2013 by $8.3 million and positioning the company for significant growth opportunities as new energy regulations continue to appear on the horizon.

    "[We] are currently encouraged by the continued level of spending by our largely midstream and downstream clientele," stated William Coskey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ENGlobal. "Having regained our footing once again, we now expect to explore acquisition opportunities for external growth."

    With three decades of experience in the automation and engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) industries, ENGlobal maintains an established presence in the energy industry in markets all over the world. Look for the company to continue building on the financial successes of 2014 moving forward, closing in on its vision of becoming the preferred provider of innovative automation integration services and select EPCM projects to clients around the globe.

    So why down?

    No one knows the stock. No real earnings release, no conference call, no outlook from management and finally no apparent interest in shareholder value. I thought maybe there was an announcement coming from the energy alternative business but .....

    Maybe management does not know how to build value? Positive earnings, renewed 5 year contracts and a share price of $1.60 makes no sense what so ever.

    What to do with a management who does not care about share price?

    Looks good especially considering the oil market collapse. Mentions acquisitions? Guess we will have to wait for sec filing for specifics. This not a $2 stock. Hopefully someone will pick up coverage with a buy rating!

  • Downsizing done, low margin business is gone, revenues up especially automation, no debt, available credit facility, margins improved and adequate backlog. Earnings positive during a slow quarter. Patents are impressive. No marketing beyond word of mouth, that needs to be diversified to gain what appear to be excellent services. And as we know no pr other than the investor ideas group which does even show on yahoo and the stories don't say anything. Insiders own huge amounts which makes me wonder why basically a penny stock price is ok with them???

  • A company that has achieved positive earnings and can't seem to communicate with shareholders needs a manager who can. Positive earnings and patents is worth more than $1.70 per share. On the other hand a larger group could take this over especially at this price. Word of mouth marketing is not making it and with no marketing of the shares without a conference call or other real news is baffling.

    Quick read shows continued good news for 2015. What's not there (I think) is the recent talk about environmental opportunities. We have got to get a brokerage coverage or this will be dead money. Overall, 2015 should be good with a possibility of new business. The essential need for energy groups to rein in costs is eng expertise. Good luck longs

    Because of that silence, investors become suspicious that something bad is brewing. When in fact I believe something good is about to happen. Such a good report why would management not take a bow every now and then. Time will tell.

    I plan to read more thoroughly this weekend.

  • Guess if your stock price is in the cellar, buy, buy, buy! Like if you can't beat them, join them. Lol.

    Have seen everything now! Stock buy back?

    Perhaps that means the earnings report will be good? If one did not know better, it could seem the low share price was intentional in order to buy back at a low price? It might be rewarding to the patient investor? The November - December quarter is always the lowest due to holidays and leave that do not generate revenues and they still had positive earnings. May the Force be with us!

  • gjcarlson gjcarlson Apr 23, 2015 5:33 PM Flag

    I would think they would buy when the price is depressed? If eps is 10 cents or higher, they will pay more to buy back. Could be wrong but buying before earnings in two weeks will go further in number of shares.

  • gjcarlson gjcarlson Apr 24, 2015 9:36 AM Flag

    Interesting that they will fund out of cash? They are not worried about cash flow which should mean good earnings.

  • Mobile lads and payment systems. Eng consulting. Hope this message is not deleted.

  • The info of the last month seems to say that earnings are REAL good. So buy it while you can!
