COVID-19

Like many other companies, the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak threatens our supply chain. While we have no operations in China or in other countries significantly impacted by COVID-19, the Company and certain of its major original equipment manufacturers source certain supplies, materials and equipment from these countries.  Production disruptions related to the spreading of this virus could negatively impact our schedules thereby adversely affecting our ability to complete large fixed-price contract projects on a timely basis. If the outbreak becomes a global pandemic, it could significantly challenge the Company’s ability to conduct normal operations especially at job sites where sustained labor productivity is essential to the achievement of successful projects. We are actively attempting to manage these risks.

However, due to the uncertainty regarding the duration and extent of the COVID-19 outbreak, the severity of the operational and financial impacts on the Company will depend on how long and disperse the disruptions in a variety of areas prove to be including the capital markets, the Company’s customers and supply chains, and the Company’s labor force. The current impacts of the outbreak on the Company’s businesses are not quantifiable at this time. The Company intends to provide a further update when it files its next annual report on Form 10-K in April 2020.
