ENGlobal Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results

HOUSTON, Aug. 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ENGlobal (Nasdaq:ENG), a leading
provider of energy-related engineering and automation services, announced
today its financial results for the second quarter ended June 29, 2013.

Second Quarter 2013 Highlights Compared to Second Quarter 2012:

  *$0.06 loss per share, an improvement from a loss per share of $0.37
  *Revenue of $50.6 million, a decrease of 14.5%
  *Gross profit margin as a percentage of revenue of 10.9%, an increase from
  *Overall SG&A decreased from $7.9 million to $6.4 million

ENGlobal reported a net loss of approximately $1.7 million, or $(0.06) per
share, from both continuing and discontinued operations for the quarter ended
June 29, 2013. This compares to a net loss of approximately $9.8 million, or
$(0.37) per share, and a net loss from continuing operations of approximately
$8.3 million, or $(0.31) per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.
Second quarter 2013 revenues decreased to $50.6 million, 14.5% lower than the
$59.2 million for the second quarter of 2012, primarily due to lower
engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) project revenues in the
Engineering and Construction segment and the conclusion of several projects in
the fabrication division of the Automation segment in 2012.

"The impending divestiture of our Gulf Coast engineering and in-plant
operations to Furmanite will result in a major transformation of our
business," said William A. Coskey, P.E., Founder and Chief Executive Officer
of ENGlobal."The transaction is expected to close by the end of August, and
the corporate services transition is expected to be substantially complete by
the end of 2013."

Mr. Coskey continued. "In effect, this transaction serves as a directional
change for ENGlobal.We will have a fresh start and our management team will
now have the freedom to pursue strategic opportunities that we believe will
ultimately grow the Company.Through the balance of this year, we will firm up
the new goals for our Company's future – and look forward to communicating our
short- and long-term plans during that time."

The Company's gross profit margin as a percentage of revenue increased to
10.9% in the three months ended June 29, 2013 as compared to 8.8% for the
three months ended June 30, 2012. The primary reason for this increase is
reduced variable costs and improved efficiencies in the Automation segment.

The following table illustrates the composition of the Company's revenue and
profitability for the three months ended June 29, 2013 and June 30, 2012,

Overall, selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses decreased $1.5
million, or 19%, from $7.9 million in the three months ended June 30, 2012 to
$6.4 million for the three months ended June 29, 2013.As a percentage of
revenue, SG&A decreased to 12.6% for the three months ended June 29, 2013,
from 13.3% for the comparable period in 2012.

The amount outstanding under the Company's credit facility was $26.8 million
at December29, 2012, $14.7 million at June 29, 2013 and $12.5 million at
August 7, 2013.These decreases were primarily due to the release of
restricted cash related to the expiration of the Company's Ex-Im Letter of
Credit Facility and the liquidation of the working capital of its divested
business units.

On July 5, 2013, the Company entered into a definitive agreement under which
its Gulf Coast engineering and in-plant operations will be sold to Furmanite
America, Inc., a subsidiary of Furmanite Corporation (NYSE:FRM). The total
value of the transaction to ENGlobal is expected to be approximately $21.5
million, consisting primarily of cash at closing and a $3.5 million promissory
note issued with a Furmanite Corporation guarantee.ENGlobal intends to use
the net proceeds from this transaction to repay its outstanding debt and for
working capital purposes.The transaction has been approved by the boards of
directors for both companies, and is expected to close on or around August 30,
2013, subject to lender approval and the completion of customary conditions.

The Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 29,
2013 will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission later today
reflecting these results.
