Results Reflect Improved Gross Margin, Cash Flow, Backlog and Revenue Diversification
LOMBARD, IL — November 19, 2014 — Pernix Group, Inc. (OTCQB: PRXG) today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2014.
Financial Highlights — All figures are in U.S. dollars; comparisons of performance are made between Q3 2014 and Q3 2013 unless otherwise specified.
Revenue and Backlog
Liquidity and Balance Sheet
The Company generated consolidated revenue in the third quarter of 2014 of $19.2 million, as compared to $21.4 million in the comparable period of 2013. Construction segment revenue declined from $19.7 million to $17.2 million, due primarily to achieving substantial completion of a large containerized housing (CHU) project while revenue from several new projects substantially offset the decline from the CHU project. The Company generated construction-related revenue from seven projects during the three months ended September 30, 2014, as compared to five projects during the comparable period in 2013, reflecting the ongoing success of the Company’s efforts to diversify its project portfolio. Power segment revenue increased from $1.7 million to $1.9 million, due primarily to higher demand for power at our plants in Fiji, driven by a shift from hydro to diesel generation, partially offset by lower man-month fees at our operations in Vanuatu.
Gross profit increased 44% or $1.5 million to $4.8 million in the third quarter of 2014 as compared to the comparable period in 2013 fueled by lower anticipated costs related to the two international projects that were substantially complete during the third quarter of 2014. The increase in Construction margin more than offset a slight power generation margin decline resulting mainly from planned maintenance costs at both power plants in Fiji.
Pretax income attributable to Pernix shareholders was comparable at $0.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 and 2013. Consolidated net income attributable to common stockholders was $0.1 million in the third quarter of this year, or $0.02 basic and diluted earnings per share, as compared to a loss of $4.6 million in the comparable period last year, or $(0.49) per share.
The Company filed its Form 10-Q with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 14, 2014, which incorporates its unaudited financial statements and notes thereto for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2014.
