Reconciliations of net income to EBITDA and EBITDA, as adjusted, are provided in Tables 4 and 5, respectively, in the accompanying financial tables.

Net income before the non-cash impact of amortization of intangible assets for the quarter ended December 31, 2008 was $7.8 million, or $0.09 per share, compared to net loss before the non-cash impact of amortization of intangible assets for the quarter ended December 31, 2007 of $0.3 million, or $0.01 per share. A reconciliation of net income to net income before the non-cash impact of amortization of intangible assets is provided in Table 4 in the accompanying financial tables.

"I am proud of our performance given the current uncertain economic environment. EnergySolutions continues to operate profitably and generate positive cash flow. We have well-established relationships with well-capitalized private and public customers across the United States and in the United Kingdom. In the fourth quarter, our consortium took control of the $7 billion tank operations project at Hanford to clean up contaminated waste water, and we were awarded a $19 million contract for soil remediation at the Asarco site in Texas. In the United Kingdom, our Magnox contract was extended for an additional two years based on our good performance and our outstanding safety record," said Steve Creamer, the Company's Chief Executive Officer.

"We continue to make progress in our business development efforts. For example, in the fourth quarter, we began work on the removal of eight retired steam generators at a nuclear station in North Carolina. EnergySolutions is performing the engineering, processing, packaging, transport and disposal of the large components at our Clive, Utah disposal facility. This project demonstrates that funding solutions for large component removal exist in this economy. Overall, our portfolio of current and potential projects remains diversified and strong, our capital structure remains sound, and we continue to pay down debt with our free cash flow."

Business Segments - Fourth Quarter 2008

The results of the Company's four business segments are presented in Table 6 in the accompanying financial tables.

Federal Services revenues for the fourth quarter of 2008 were $69.8 million compared to revenues of $40.1 million for the same period in 2007. Segment income from operations for the fourth quarter of 2008 was $6.1 million compared to $6.4 million in the same quarter of 2007. Operating margin was 8.8% for the fourth quarter of 2008 compared to 15.9% for the fourth quarter of 2007. During the fourth quarter of 2007 and the first quarter of 2008, the Company, at the request of its customer, the Department of Energy, assumed voting control over two joint ventures. As a result, the consolidation of these joint ventures increased revenues $28.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2008 compared to the fourth quarter of 2007 at a significantly lower operating margin than our historical operating margin. This increase in revenues was partially offset by decreased revenues of $9.8 million from work performed at the Savannah River and Hanford sites. Lower operating margins were the result of increased revenues from the lower-margin joint venture projects and decreased revenues from the higher-margin work performed at the Savannah River and Hanford sites.

Commercial Services revenues for the fourth quarter of 2008 were $31.2 million compared to $39.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2007. The decline in revenues was primarily the result of a decrease in revenues from utility services and engineering and technology projects because of the completion of several large contracts that had been active in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007. This was offset in part by increased revenues from soil remediation work performed at the Asarco site near Houston, Texas. Income from operations for the fourth quarter of 2008 was $5.3 million compared to $8.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2007. The operating margin for the fourth quarter of 2008 was 16.9% compared to 21.8% for the fourth quarter of 2007.

Logistics, Processing and Disposal revenues for the fourth quarter of 2008 were $63.5 million compared to $75.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2007. The decline in revenues was primarily due to lower volumes of waste disposed at the Company's facility in Clive, Utah. Income from operations for the fourth quarter of 2008 was $22.0 million compared to $35.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2007. The operating margin for the fourth quarter of 2008 was 34.6% compared to 46.3% in the same quarter of 2007. The decline in operating margin was primarily due to lower revenues at the Company's Clive facility in combination with our fixed costs at the facility.

International revenues for the fourth quarter of 2008 were $245.6 million compared to $272.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2007. On a local currency basis, revenues for the fourth quarter of 2008 increased 17.6% over the fourth quarter of 2007 mostly due to increased revenues on our Magnox contracts. However, international revenues were negatively impacted approximately 23% by foreign currency fluctuations. Segment income from operations for the fourth quarter of 2008 was $9.4 million compared to an operating loss of $0.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2007. The operating margin for the fourth quarter of 2008 was 3.8%, compared to negative 0.1% for the same quarter of 2007. The increased operating margin was primarily due to greater efficiency fees recognized in the quarter and lower selling, general and administrative expenses. The Company has been working with its customer in the UK to improve the monitoring of progress under its contracts and agree upon achieved milestones throughout the year. As this monitoring improves, the recognition of efficiency fees is expected to be more evenly spread throughout the year and less concentrated in the Company's first and second fiscal quarters.

Full Year 2008 Results

Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2008 were $1.8 billion compared to $1.1 billion for the year ended December 31, 2007. Gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2008 was $247.2 million compared to $196.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2007. Income from operations for the year ended December 31, 2008 was $117.8 million compared to $74.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2007.

Net income for the year ended December 31, 2008 was $45.2 million, or $0.51 per share, compared to net loss of $8.9 million, or $0.79 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2007. Non-GAAP net income for the year ended December 31, 2008 was $55.0 million, or $0.62 per share. A reconciliation of net income to non-GAAP net income is provided in Table 5 in the accompanying financial tables.

EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2008 was $159.8 million, compared to $121.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2007. A reconciliation of net income to EBITDA is provided in Table 4 in the accompanying financial tables. EBITDA, as adjusted for the management compensation expense paid at the direction of and reimbursed by ENV and the expenses related to the secondary offering, was $171.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2008. A reconciliation of EBITDA, as adjusted, is provided in Table 5 in the accompanying financial tables.

Net income before the non-cash impact of amortization of intangible assets for the year ended December 31, 2008 was $64.4 million, or $0.73 per share, compared to $6.5 million, or $0.56 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2007. A reconciliation of net income to net income before the impact of amortization of intangible assets is provided in Table 4 in the accompanying financial tables. Non-GAAP net income before the non-cash impact of amortization of intangible assets was $74.2 million, or $0.84 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2008. A reconciliation of net income to non-GAAP net income before the impact of amortization of intangible assets is provided in Table 5 in the accompanying financial tables.

Outlook for 2009

"The economic climate remains difficult, but we are fortunate to have great people and assets that are needed by our major utility and government customers. We still have a strong portfolio of industry-wide relationships that continue to generate new contracts and bidding opportunities, and we continue to execute well. We have reduced core operating expenses and continue to pay down debt. Environmental cleanup funding for federal projects is growing, as evidenced by the $6 billion in approved stimulus funds for the DOE. This could be very positive for EnergySolutions. Our International segment has opportunities at Sellafield and the UK National Labratory. Our commercial utility customers are working diligently with us to try to find funding solutions for license stewardship and large component projects which have been delayed due to the decline in the financial markets," Mr. Creamer said.

The Company estimates net income for 2009 in the range of $0.50 to $0.60 per share, based on 88.3 million fully diluted shares outstanding. Net income before the non-cash impact of the amortization of intangibles is estimated to be in the range of $0.70 to $0.80 per share. Amortization expense of intangible assets is expected to be $28 million, or $18 million net of related income tax expense. EBITDA is estimated to be in the range of $165-$180 million, assuming no special charges in all cases.

The Company defines EBITDA as earnings before interest expense including interest rate swap loss, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. The Company uses EBITDA to facilitate a comparison of its operating performance on a consistent basis from period to period that, when viewed with its GAAP results and the above reconciliation, management believes provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting its business than GAAP measures alone. EBITDA assists management in comparing its operating performance on a consistent basis because it removes the impact of its capital structure (primarily interest charges), asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) and items outside the control of its management team (taxes) from its results of operations. EBITDA should not be considered as a substitute for net income or income from operations, as determined in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA is not defined by GAAP, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analyzing the Company's results as reported under GAAP.

The Company defines net income before the impact of amortization of intangible assets as net income plus amortization expense of intangible assets, net of the related income tax expense of these items. Net income before the impact of amortization of intangible assets and net income before the impact of amortization of intangible assets per share are not computed in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures may be useful to investors seeking to compare the operating performance on a consistent basis from period to period that, when viewed with its GAAP results and the above reconciliation, management believes provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting the Company's business than GAAP measures alone. Net income before the impact of amortization of intangible assets and net income before the impact of amortization of intangible assets per share should not be considered as a substitute for net income or net income per share, as determined in accordance with GAAP. Net income before the impact of amortization of intangible assets and net income before the impact of amortization of intangible assets per share are not defined by GAAP, and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analyzing the Company's results as reported under GAAP.
