“Our second quarter results reflect improved margins on several projects completed during the quarter and increased activity related to offshore maintenance and repair work. Our cash position improved over the prior quarter with $6.7 million in operating cash flows generated for the current quarter and through careful control over capital expenditures. We remain debt free. Our strong emphasis on cash management during this down cycle allows us to continue to more than adequately cover dividend distributions at our current levels. While we see no significant improvements in the oil and gas sector as we move into the second half of this year, a shift in focus to marine opportunities, and continued offshore services work combined with our strong balance sheet will enable us to weather these conditions,” said Kirk Meche, President and Chief Executive Officer of Gulf Island Fabrication, Inc.

This authorization remains in effect through July 30, 2017.
