CES Synergies Reports Second Quarter 2015 Financial Results and Provides Business Update

Revenue Increases 9.4% to $5.1 Million; Remediation Revenue Increases 81.7% to $2.8 Million

CRYSTAL SPRINGS, FL--(Marketwired - August 13, 2015) - CES Synergies, Inc. (OTC PINK: CESX) ("CES" or the "Company"), a full service environmental, asbestos abatement and demolition company, today announced financial results for the second quarter ending June 30, 2015 and provided a general business update.

Second Quarter 2015 Highlights:

  • Revenue increased 9.4% to $5.1 million versus $4.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014;
  • Remediation segment net sales increased 81.7% to $2.8 million versus $1.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014;
  • Company files application for NASDAQ Capital Market listing

John Tostanoski, CEO of CES Synergies, commented, "Total revenue for the second quarter of 2015 increased 9.4% to $5.1 million, which included an 82% increase in Remediation segment sales. Growth in our Remediation segment was partially offset by a decline in sales in the Demolition segment due to fewer contracts put out for bid in 2015 compared to 2014. However, during the second quarter of 2015, we won 25 new demolition contracts in the state of Florida that are expected to commence in the third quarter of 2015. Two of these contracts alone are valued at a combined $1.6 million. Our total backlog of demolition contracts at the end of the second quarter was approximately $4.1 million. Given the seasonality of our business, combined with our growing backlog, we anticipate improvement in both revenue and profitability in the second half of the year and currently project $22 million in revenue and positive EBITDA by the end of the fourth quarter of 2015.

"We also continue to diversify our revenue streams and believe there are significant growth opportunities at the federal and other government levels. As an example, we recently announced that we received the first demolition and abatement task order related to the military housing privatization at an Air Force base. The initial task order is worth $742,000 and the overall potential of that contract under the Master Service Agreement is $10.0 million over the next three years. Similarly, we were awarded an additional $500,000 to provide further demolition services at the Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Florida.

"We continue to strengthen our corporate governance and have added two new independent board members that bring extensive experience in corporate finance, banking and capital markets. We have also filed an application to uplist to the NASDAQ Capital Market. We believe that uplisting to the NASDAQ will help broaden our shareholder base and raise our profile within the investment community.

"Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2015 increased 9.4% $5.1 million versus $4.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. The increase in revenue is due to increased remediation segment sales in the second quarter of 2015, partially offset by a decline in Demolition Segment sales. Gross margin in the second quarter of 2015 was $859,025 or 17% of revenue versus $1.3 million or 23% of revenue for the same period in 2014. The decline in gross margin percentage in the quarter ended June 30, 2015 was the result of higher material and labor costs in our contracts. We anticipate gross margins to increase in the coming months."
