Willbros Group, Inc. (NYSE: WG) today reported its results for the second
quarter of 2008. On revenue of $467.7 million, net income from continuing
operations for the second quarter of 2008 was $20.1 million, or $0.49 per
diluted share, as compared to a loss of $40.4 million, or $1.47 per share,
2007. Including discontinued operations, Willbros reported second quarter 2008
net income of $19.3 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, compared to a loss
$44.2 million, or $1.61 per share from second quarter 2007. Second quarter
revenue from continuing operations of $467.7 million was approximately three
times the $156.7 million reported in second quarter 2007. The increase was
attributed to high utilization of the Company’s U.S. large diameter pipeline
construction capacity, and from the addition of the Downstream services unit,
InServ, which was acquired late in 2007.
Harl, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Our second quarter 2008
results reflect the leverage our quarterly performance can achieve when we
achieve operational excellence. Our Downstream performance, greatly improved
over the first quarter, benefited from the seasonality of the refinery
maintenance business and the strong market for field services and storage tanks.
We saw strong revenue in our Upstream segment, even after the effect of the
spring break-up in Canada, and our Engineering segment continues to provide
excellent returns executing high value added assignments. Our focus on risk
management and improved processes and procedures has contributed to the
improvement in execution, as have the hard work and dedication of our employees.
We will continue to focus on our plan to grow Willbros, while managing for
best risk-adjusted returns and improvement of our execution skills. We believe
the outlook for our business remains very positive and we continue to add
backlog, including recently announced significant project work in our pipeline
construction operation in Canada.”
