|Segment Reporting [Abstract]|
7. OPERATING SEGMENTS
During 2019, we operated and managed our business through three operating divisions ("Fabrication," "Shipyard" and "Services") and one non-operating division ("Corporate"), which represented our reportable segments. In the first quarter 2020, our Fabrication and Services Divisions were operationally combined to form an integrated new division called Fabrication & Services. The operational combination will enable us to capitalize on the best practices and execution experience of the former divisions and maximize the utilization of our resources. As a result, we currently operate and manage our business through two operating divisions ("Shipyard" and "Fabrication & Services") and one non-operating division ("Corporate"), which represent our reportable segments. Accordingly, the segment results (including the effects of eliminations) for our Fabrication and Services Divisions for 2019 were combined to conform to the presentation of our reportable segments for 2020. In addition to the division combination, in the first quarter 2020, management and project execution responsibility for our two, forty-vehicle ferry projects was transferred from our former Fabrication Division to our Shipyard Division to better align the supervision and construction of these vessels with the capabilities and expertise of our Shipyard Division. Accordingly, results for these projects for 2019 were reclassified from our former
Fabrication Division to our Shipyard Division to conform to the presentation of these projects for 2020. Our two operating divisions and Corporate Division are discussed below:
Shipyard Division – Our Shipyard Division fabricates newbuild marine vessels, including OSVs, MPSVs, research vessels, tugboats, salvage vessels, towboats, barges, drydocks, anchor handling vessels, and lift boats; provides marine repair and maintenance services, including steel repair, blasting and painting services, electrical systems repair, machinery and piping system repairs, and propeller, shaft, and rudder reconditioning; and performs conversion projects to lengthen vessels and modify vessels to permit their use for a different type of activity or enhance their capacity or functionality. These activities are performed at our facilities in Houma, Jennings and Lake Charles, Louisiana. In the first quarter 2020, we announced our intent to close the Jennings Yard upon completion of our harbor tug projects, which is forecast to occur in the fourth quarter 2020.
Fabrication & Services Division – Our Fabrication & Services (“F&S”) Division fabricates modules, skids and piping systems for onshore refining, petrochemical, LNG and industrial facilities and offshore facilities; fabricates foundations, secondary steel components and support structures for alternative energy developments and coastal mooring facilities; fabricates offshore production platforms and associated structures, including jacket foundations, piles and topsides for fixed production and utility platforms, as well as hulls and topsides for floating production and utility platforms; fabricates other complex steel structures and components; provides services on offshore platforms, including welding, interconnect piping and other services required to connect production equipment and service modules and equipment; provides on-site construction and maintenance services on inland platforms and structures and industrial facilities; and performs municipal and drainage projects, including pump stations, levee reinforcement, bulkheads and other public works. These activities are performed at our facility in Houma, Louisiana.
Corporate Division – Our Corporate Division includes costs that do not directly relate to our two operating divisions. Such costs include, but are not limited to, costs of maintaining our corporate office, executive management salaries and incentives, board of directors' fees, litigation related costs, and costs associated with overall corporate governance and being a publicly traded company. Costs incurred by our Corporate Division on behalf of our operating divisions are allocated to the operating divisions. Such costs include, but are not limited to, human resources, insurance, sales and marketing, information technology and accounting.
We generally evaluate the performance of, and allocate resources to, our divisions based upon gross profit (loss) and operating income (loss). Segment assets are comprised of all assets attributable to each division. Intersegment revenues are priced at the estimated fair value of work performed. Summarized financial information for our segments as of and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, are as follows (in thousands):
The entire disclosure for reporting segments including data and tables. Reportable segments include those that meet any of the following quantitative thresholds a) it's reported revenue, including sales to external customers and intersegment sales or transfers is 10 percent or more of the combined revenue, internal and external, of all operating segments b) the absolute amount of its reported profit or loss is 10 percent or more of the greater, in absolute amount of 1) the combined reported profit of all operating segments that did not report a loss or 2) the combined reported loss of all operating segments that did report a loss c) its assets are 10 percent or more of the combined assets of all operating segments.
