Marshall T. Reynolds, Chairman, noted he was pleased with the performance for the quarter and the year. "We are gratified that the Company is showing these strong results. Also, we are even more excited about the prospects for 2011. Although our backlog at the end of September totaled $47.8 million, the dollar volume of projects we are bidding on for 2011 is almost double the amount of projects up for bid at this time in 2010. While our success at winning the contracts always determines the revenue we ultimately will generate, with the increased volume of work available, we are very excited about our prospects for 2011. Our backlog last year at this time was higher due to several large 2010 projects being bid earlier than normal. However, as previously stated, with the large volume of known projects being bid currently and the anticipated additional projects planned for 2011, we feel that our prospects for a profitable and successful 2011 are very strong. "
Edsel R. Burns, President of ESA, shared Mr. Reynold's thoughts. "We are very pleased that the benefits of all the hard work to position the Company for the increased demand for its services is starting to be realized. The Company continues to strive to improve our operating efficiencies and those efforts coupled with the anticipated strong demand for our services in 2011 should result in successful performance. Having gone through the difficulties of the 2009 economic meltdown and bounced back with the good performance this year, we feel the Company is well positioned to perform well into the future."
