“Our margins remain positive both in terms of year over year and fourth quarter 2014 over the comparable quarter 2013 results, as a reflection of the changes we have implemented within our company as we continue to search for ways to improve our project execution,” said Kirk Meche, President and Chief Executive Offer of Gulf Island Fabrication, Inc.

Our fourth quarter 2014 results were negatively impacted by a charge of $3.6 million for an allowance related to a receivable for a large Deepwater hull that was completed in the first quarter of 2014, an impairment charge of $3.2 million related to assets held for sale and a higher effective tax rate for 2014.
