Financial Review

The Company is very excited about the transformation and diversification in conjunction with our recent acquisitions. These will strengthen our Department of State (DOS) and commercial businesses including our Pac Rim region, which positions us for significant organic and inorganic growth.

We have successfully completed two projects at Texas A&M University during the first half of 2015. We are also planning to complete four additional projects in the second half 2015 along with a number of newly acquired BEK BG projects. We are actively pursuing four major DOS projects with award expectation in the second half of 2015, two of which have been delayed from first half of 2015.

In relation to our recent BEK BG and dck acquisitions, we retained the leadership, operational and functional teams of both acquisitions. They will continue to serve, grow and utilize customer and supplier relationships which will provide the Company with the capabilities to further strengthen and leverage global opportunities.

Nidal Z. Zayed, CEO & President of Pernix stated "The first half of Q2 was transformative for us, not only did we expand our Pacific operations with acquisition of certain dck assets, but we now have a strong presence in the domestic construction market with the addition of BEK BG to the Pernix team. We have diversified our offerings and expanded our capabilities across the board with a focus on operational excellence. We are excited to work with new clients, and look forward to a successful second half of the year." Mr. Zayed further stated, "The Pernix team is now over 400 employees strong and our revenue will take a quantum leap forward."
