Gross Margin Percentage Continues its Improvement at 26%
CRYSTAL SPRINGS, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 11/14/16 -- CES Synergies, Inc. (OTC PINK: CESX) ("CES" or the "Company"), a full service environmental, asbestos abatement and demolition company, today announced financial results for the third quarter ending September 30, 2016 and provided a general business update.
John Tostanoski, CEO of CES Synergies, commented, "Gross margin percentage for the third quarter of 2016 was 26% -- an 18-percentage point increase over the quarter ended September 30, 2015 -- continuing its improvement for this fiscal year. The continued increase in margin was largely attributable to the fact that the Company had a higher percentage of Remediation and Insulation jobs, which have lower non-labor costs. As such, the Company has increased net sales in both our Remediation and Insulation segments over the same nine month period while net sales in our Demolition segment decreased. CES expects Remediation sales to remain strong for the balance of 2016, and demolition revenues to increase in the fourth quarter, because of long-term contracts with FDOT and at Eglin Air Force Base."
"As we focus on improvement of our gross margins, the Company will continue to increase its work in the Remediation and Insulation segments while targeting Demolition projects best suited to our business model. We will continue our path toward greater gross margins through cost cutting as well as identifying and bidding opportunities utilizing our improved pricing protocols, which we believe will make the Company profitable by the end of 2016."
