Management's Assessment

Mark Hess, ENGlobal's Chief Financial Officer, said: "I believe we are
continuing to see positive results from initiatives that have been undertaken
at ENGlobal over the last two years. Our improved performance is best
demonstrated by a significant increase in margins, consistent project
execution, as well as substantial internal growth in our continuing

Mr. Hess continued: "We maintained a substantial cash balance and had no
borrowings during the quarter. However, we are working with a regional bank to
replace our current credit facility that matures at the end of the third
quarter with a similar three year facility that will help provide the working
capital to sustain our growth. While there is still some work to be done, we
expect a new facility to be in place during September."

"We're obviously proud to report this third consecutive profitable quarter,
which represents a major turnaround in our business from recent years," said
William Coskey, P.E., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ENGlobal. "We
continue to be excited about capitalizing on ENGlobal's differentiated
expertise and proprietary technologies, whereby we provide value to our
clients. In addition, we expect to begin evaluating select external growth
opportunities – having similar characteristics and potentially providing
additional capabilities for our firm."
