Deep Down Reveals 1st Quarter 2009 Results
Deep Down announced its unaudited results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2009.
Revenues for the first quarter of 2009 were $7,102,589, compared to $6,279,465 for the first quarter of 2008, for a 13.1% increase. The increase in revenues included $2.6 million from the acquisition of Flotation Technologies. Net loss for the first quarter ended March 31, 2009, was $729,775 as compared to a net loss of $89,477 for the same period of 2008. The first quarter loss included a net loss from Flotation Technologies of approximately $300,000.
Ron Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer stated, "Historically, the first quarter is our weakest operating quarter; however, our operations as a whole have been naturally affected by the economic slowdown and falling oil and gas prices. We are fortunate to be in the deepwater sector of the industry, which is currently the strongest sector. We have recently announced several new contracts that are commencing this year, and are beginning work on our large riser buoyancy contract for delivery in the first quarter of 2010. We continue to expect growth in our operations for the balance of the year."
"The Company's financial condition continues to be strong," commented Eugene L. Butler, Chief Financial Officer. "With all of the Company's recent acquisitions and the significant growth we have experienced, we are now implementing a new Enterprise, Resource, and Planning (ERP) system to strengthen and improve our internal controls, consolidate our accounting systems, and streamline our service, manufacturing, and operating processes."
