Orion Group Holdings Announces Preliminary Results for the Third Quarter

Conference Call Scheduled to Discuss These Results

HOUSTON, Oct. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Orion Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ORN) (the "Company") a leading specialty construction company, today announced preliminary results for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 and scheduled a conference call to discuss these results.

During the third quarter 2018, the Company experienced unanticipated delays in commencing certain work due to customer schedules.  The Company also experienced significant production delays in its Concrete segment, primarily due to continuous rain throughout its market areas in Texas, particularly during September.  As a result, the timing of certain projects and opportunities has changed and the Company will see significant revenue shortfall in both segments, which will cause third quarter 2018 results to fall significantly below its expectations, anticipating a loss of ($0.20) – ($0.25) per share.  Please note that these third quarter 2018 results are preliminary and therefore subject to the completion of customary quarterly closing and review procedures, including potentially performing an interim Goodwill test. Final third quarter results are expected to be announced on November 1, 2018.

These delays due to customer schedules and weather patterns were outside the Company’s control. Given the quick cycle nature of its business, the Company reminds investors to focus on long-term results, rather than quarter to quarter fluctuations.

Although the anticipated results for the third quarter are disappointing, the Company remains confident in its strategic plan, its long-term market outlook and its fundamental business drivers.   During the third quarter the Company bid on approximately $871 million worth of opportunities and was successful on approximately $210 million, representing an overall win rate of 24.1%.  In addition, the Company is confident in its outlook for future bid opportunities, including over $9 billion worth of potential opportunities the Company is currently tracking.

“Despite delays during the third quarter, we remain confident with our long-term outlook due to our solid bid market and the second highest backlog in the Company’s history,” said Mark Stauffer, Orion Group Holding's President and Chief Executive Officer.  “Overall, we continue to believe the Company has a solid strategic plan and a strong outlook, with solid prospects for continued bottom line improvement in the future.  During the first half of 2018, we outperformed due to solid project execution, continued strong demand, and favorable working conditions. We continue to remain focused on managing cost and reducing underutilized assets.”

More detailed information about these events and their impact on third quarter results will be discussed during a conference call today, October 18, 2018 at 9:00 AM CDT / 10:00 AM EDT.  To listen to a live webcast of the conference call, or access the replay, visit the Calendar of Events page of the Investor Relations section of the website at www.oriongroupholdingsinc.com.  To participate in the call, please dial the Orion Group Holdings, Inc.
