Pernix Group, Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2015 Financial Results

LOMBARD, Ill., Nov. 06, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pernix Group, Inc. (OTCQB:PRXG) today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2015.

Financial Review

The Company is very excited about the impact of recent acquisitions on the overall Pernix platform in terms of increased diversification and critical mass. The acquisitions have broadened our geographic footprint, end market coverage and service line offerings. Together with organic growth in our Department of State business and a solidified Pac Rim operating presence we believe we are well positioned for significant growth.

Across both public and private sectors we have successfully completed projects for Novartis, Purdue Pharma, Texas A&M University, DOS/Niger and FEA/Kinoya during the nine months ended September 30, 2015. We are also planning to complete three additional projects in the fourth quarter of 2015 along with a number of newly acquired BEK BG projects. We are actively pursuing additional DOS projects, large commercial and advanced technical opportunities in North America, and a large program in Guam with potential award expectation in the fourth quarter of 2015.

In relation to our recent BEK BG and dck acquisitions, we retained the leadership, operational and functional teams of both acquisitions. These key resources 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 “We accomplished a lot in the third quarter. This was our first quarter in which we operated with our new acquisitions, BEK Building Group and Pernix Guam. In addition, we received major awards this quarter that increased our backlog to unprecedented levels for Pernix. We are continuing to leverage our expanded global presence and diversify our offerings, as well as adding a significant number of new clients.” Mr. Zayed went on to say, “The rest of this year and leading into 2016 will continue to be transformative for our company as we gear up for larger projects that will allow us to showcase our capacity for growth.”
