ENGlobal Reports Third Quarter Results

ENGlobal Reports Third Quarter Results

HOUSTON, Nov. 19, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ENGlobal (Nasdaq:ENG), a leading
provider of energy-related project delivery solutions, announced today its
financial results for its third quarter ended September 29, 2012. ENGlobal
reported a net loss of $22.3 million, or $0.83 per diluted share, for the
quarter ended September 29, 2012, compared to a net loss of $1.3 million, or
$0.05 per diluted share for the same period last year. Included in the third
quarter 2012 results were one-time, non-cash charges of approximately $17.5
million, primarily relating to goodwill impairments and a write-down of the
assets of the Field Solutions segment that was classified as held-for-sale at
quarter end, in addition to charges on completed fixed price projects.

Commenting on the results, William A. Coskey, P.E., ENGlobal's Founder,
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "To a large extent, the third
quarter is comprised of heritage financial items that have impacted our
Company and mask some recent improving financial trends in our business. For
example, we continue to see gradual improvements across several of our working
capital-related metrics.I am very pleased with current business activity in
our operations, and also the progress we have made on several fronts since
August 1^st of this year."

Mr. Coskey continued, "While we are disappointed in the quarterly results, we
believe that the measures that are being implemented should begin to have a
positive impact.During the quarter, we continued to make progress on our
strategic priorities, including collaborating with our management consultant
to improve financial performance, reorganizing our management team, pursuing
opportunities to improve margins and reduce expenses, and completing the
divestiture of our Land and Right-of-Way division of the Field Solutions
segment.One thing I can say with certainty is that our management team is
engaged and energized, and working hard to produce better results going

Third quarter revenues decreased to $57.5 million, 5% lower than the
$60.5million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2011, primarily due to a
decrease in revenue from the Gulf Coast region of the Engineering and
Construction segment.

In response to the reduced activity levels expected for the remainder of 2012,
the Company began reducing overhead and selling, general and administrative
("SG&A")staff levels beginning in June and has continued this effort
throughout the third quarter.Overall, SG&A expenses decreased $0.5million
from $6.7million in the three months ended September 30, 2011, to $6.2
million in the third quarter of 2012.As a percentage of revenue, SG&A expense
decreased to 10.7% for the three months ended September 29, 2012, from 11.0%
for the comparable prior year period.

ENGlobal continues to negotiate with its lender and work with its management
consultant to restore the Company's compliance with its credit facility.

The Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended
September29, 2012 will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission
today reflecting these results. The Company will not be hosting an earnings
conference call for the quarter ended September29, 2012.
