Sykesville, MD – August 15, 2014 – GSE Systems, Inc. (“GSE” or “the Company”) (NYSE MKT: GVP), a global energy services solutions provider, today announced financial results for the second quarter (“Q2”) ended June 30, 2014.
Jim Eberle, Chief Executive Officer of GSE, said, “Our Q2 results reflect the ongoing challenges of our nuclear and fossil end markets. Although economic and regulatory uncertainties, especially with respect to coal-fired power plants, have caused lingering delays in capital expenditure programs, we booked approximately $15.9 million of new orders during the first six months of 2014. This business development activity is reflected in our backlog at June 30, 2014, which rose by $1.3 million from March 31, 2014. We estimate that potential orders totaling $18.3 million are being delayed by our clients as they continue to address a dynamic industry landscape.”
