William Coskey

Thanks, Rick. Good morning, everyone, and thank you for joining this call. There is a lot of information to cover, including how ENGlobal has been doing in the midst of the ongoing pandemic.

First though, as you may have read in our press release this morning, ENGlobal has achieved its third consecutive quarter of profitability. Although it was a smaller profit than what was reported in the previous two quarters, it was a very good result on a comparison basis.

For our second quarter, which ended June 27, 2020, the company recorded net income of $68,000 or $0.00 per share compared to a net loss of $517,000 or a loss of $0.02 per share in the second quarter of last year. Also in the second quarter of 2020, ENGlobal grew revenue to $17.9 million, which is a 31% improvement over revenue of $13.6 million in the second quarter of 2019. This gain was mostly due to a $3.3 million or a 41% increase in revenue from our Automation segment, which as you may know, performs our higher-value modular automation and commissioning work.

What's further encouraging is that our Automation segment once again increased gross profit margin from 14% in the second quarter of last year to 16.1% for the second quarter of 2020.
