LOMBARD, Ill., March 29, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pernix Group, Inc. (OTCQB:PRXG) today announced its financial results for the year- ended December 31, 2015.
The Company is very excited about the BEK Building Group & dck acquisitions in 2015 as it expands the Pernix platform with an increase of valuable resources. The acquisitions have broadened our geographic footprint, end market coverage and service line offerings. With both organic growth in our Department of State business and a solidified Pac Rim operating presence we believe we are well positioned for significant organic and inorganic growth.
Across both public and private sectors we have successfully completed projects for Novartis, Purdue Pharma, Gulfstream Aerospace, Medical University of South Carolina, Texas A&M University, DOS / Freetown and FEA / Kinoya Expansion Construction projects during the year ended December 31, 2015. Upon successful completion of the Kinoya projects, the O&M Agreement between FEA and PFL was amended to include O&M services for the newly installed engines and the master O&M agreement was extended five years and now expires in 2028. In September 2015, the DOS awarded the Company a contract for $81.6 million ($68.5 million net of Value Added Tax) for the U.S. Embassy Berlin as well as several large technical market projects at BEK BG. In March 2016, the DOS awarded the Company a contract for $181.8 million ($169.2 million net of Value Added Tax) for the new U.S. Embassy Compound in Maputo, Mozambique. We are actively pursuing additional DOS projects as well as large commercial and advanced manufacturing opportunities in North America and large projects in Guam with award expectations in mid-2016.
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 “This has been a formative year for Pernix, not only did we make two major acquisitions that significantly increased our client base and expanded our global presence, but we received major awards that increased our backlog to unprecedented levels. Our focus in 2016 will be on delivery and performance excellence, we are expanding our BIM capabilities and improving process efficiencies while remaining focused on customer satisfaction.” Mr. Zayed went on to discuss Pernix’s exceptional safety record noting “In 2015 we once again achieved over 3 million man-hours and no lost time incidents.”
