Johnny Conrad, president and CEO stated, "Our results reflect a continued difficult operating environment and we expect 2016 to be another challenging year.
"Although our bid activity has been good and we see many opportunities, we have also seen many new construction customers continue to delay projects. The repair segment has shown signs of strengthening; however, there continues to be little visibility due to the short-term nature of this work.
"Management continues to focus on effectively executing our backlog, adding new contracts, improving efficiencies, controlling costs and completing the next stage of development at our Deepwater South yard, so that we can continue to perform profitably during the current environment and be well-positioned for improved profitability as our markets improve in the future."
