Charles Fabrikant, Executive Chairman, commented on the quarter’s results as follows:

“The quarter’s disappointing results were primarily Because of the extremely difficult conditions in the inland transportation and logistics services section and a more typical level of demand for our emergency response services.

The third calendar quarter usually produces improved results in the inland sector contrast with the second quarter, but this quarter the inland river system continued to suffer from the carryover effects of extreme flooding earlier in the year.  Our inland group experienced curtailed demand for fleeting and terminal services, and the barge pool incurred higher costs.  The U.S. trade dispute with China and competition from cheaper grain in South America were additional challenges.  These challenges continue recently.  Corn export demand continues to be dismal with shipments about 60% and export sales about 45% below last year.  Export sales are also lagging.  Brazil, whose share of the soybean export market increased after the commencement of the trade dispute, continues to compete aggressively.

Witt-O’Brien’s higher activity level in the third quarter of last year reflected a multitude of early stage response and recovery task orders following the hurricanes of 2017.  Witt O’Brien’s continues to support the long-term recovery efforts of public sector clients such as the U.S. Virgin Islands as well as expand into the private sector.

Liquidity and Debt – During the current year quarter, the Company repurchased $18.2M in principal amount of its 3.0% Convertible Senior Notes for $18.1M resulting in debt extinguishment losses of $0.8M.

As of September 30, 2019, the Company’s balances of cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash, restricted cash equivalents, marketable securities and construction reserve funds totaled $88.0M.  As of September 30, 2019, the Company had exited its position in Dorian LPG Ltd.  Total outstanding debt was $317.8M, including $25.0M of outstanding borrowings under the Company’s revolving credit facilities, which has subsequently been repaid.  As of September 30, 2019, the Company had $200.0M of borrowing capacity under its credit facilities.
