May 19, 2014 - Crystal Springs, FL

CRYSTAL SPRINGS, FL--(Marketwired - May 19, 2014) - CES Synergies, Inc. (OTCQB: CESX) announced results for the quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2014 were $3.8 million, a 12% increase as compared to revenues of $3.4 million in the comparable 2013 period. During the first quarter of 2014, remediation contributed $0.9 million to consolidated revenue and demolition contributed $2.8 million. Gross margin was 17% in the first quarter compared to 26% in the first quarter of 2013. The Company reported an operating loss of $0.5 million as compared to operating income of $0.1 million in the first quarter of last year. CES recorded a net loss for the first quarter of 2014 of $0.6 million or a loss of $0.01 per basic and diluted share. 

Clyde A. Biston, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of CES Synergies commented, "We were pleased to achieve increased revenues in the quarter, primarily related to new contract activity. Gross margin performance was impacted in the quarter by increased use of subcontractors and higher job site and other indirect costs, but for the balance of 2014 we expect our gross margins to improve. During the quarter, we made strategic investments in the business to drive our long term growth, including adding high quality business development executives and enhancing our equipment, technology and facilities. These enhancements have significantly improved our positioning to see a broader scope of opportunities." 

Mr. Biston continued, "We are seeing a pick-up in construction activity and our pipeline is robust. Examples of contracts secured during the first quarter include a contract with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) for demolition services as well as a demolition and remediation project with the Hillsborough County Court Annex in Tampa. Our goal is to build upon our positioning as an established leader in the region while making select acquisitions to grow geographically."
