EIL.v  +.015 to C$.13   formal announcement of contract to build Thirty Meter Telescope enclosure in Hawaii. Up to $70 million dollars!   This is in addition to large amusement park contracts that EIL has been signing in 2014-5.  Not sure why market doesn't like EIL better.  Earned .02eps the last two years but still no respect. 

 

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - July 2, 2015) - The Honourable James Moore, Minister of Industry for Canada, announced on June 30 that Dynamic Structures, a division of Empire Industries Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:EIL), will receive up to $70 million to build the precision-steel enclosure of the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT), the world's largest earth-based telescope.

The TMT enclosure is one of several key deliverables that Canada will be contributing to the TMT partnership as outlined in the April 6, 2015 press release when Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced Canada will provide $243.5 million over 10 years to support Canada's participation in TMT.

The enclosure design and manufacturing phase is expected to be executed between 2015 and 2018. Subsequent phases of the Canadian enclosure project, including shipping the enclosure to the project site, supervision of the enclosure's installation, and commissioning of the structure, may be added later as the as the overall project develops.

Dynamic Structures, based in Port Coquitlam, BC, designs, builds and installs complex mechanical systems and specialty structures for world-class telescopes, theme park rides and bridges. Dynamic Structures has designed an innovative calotte shape for the TMT enclosure. The design significantly reduces the size and improves the speed of the enclosure, to effectively shield the telescope and instruments from temperature variations, unbalanced wind forces, snow and ice. The enclosure will rotate and open directly over the telescope. When completed, the enclosure will be over 18 stories high and be assembled from over hundreds of thousands of parts.

"This is a tremendously exciting time for our Dynamic Structures business unit," said Guy Nelson, Chief Executive Officer of Empire Industries Ltd. "It is an honour to be selected to design and manufacture one of the most sophisticated moving structures on the planet. Dynamic Structures has been actively working on TMT since it was first conceived over ten years ago. We are proud to be selected to see it through to completion."

EIL.v  -.025 to C$.125   Empire lost C$.9million in Q1, most due to a paper loss on FX contracts totaling 1.9million.  C$ is up vs US$ in Q2 so there should be a positive addition to earnings in Q2.  Steel fabrication business is apparently tied to oil and gas drilling because sales and margins are down.  Hydrovac truck sales were also down.  But Backlog is up so hopefully amusement division will return company to profits this qtr.  

 

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwired - May 25, 2015) - Empire Industries Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:EIL) today reported its unaudited consolidated financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. The unaudited consolidated financial statements and MD&A have been filed on SEDAR and can be viewed at www.sedar.com or at www.empind.com.

Summary of the First Quarter 2015 results

  • Revenues decreased by $0.5 million, or 1.5% (to $33.2 million from $33.7 million in first quarter 2014)
  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased by $0.9 million, or 36% (to $1.5 million from $2.4 million in first quarter 2014)
  • Net Loss, after taking into consideration an unrealized loss on forward foreign exchange contracts of $1.9 million, was $0.9 million, versus net income of $1.2 million in first quarter 2014
  • The non-cash unrealized foreign exchange loss of $1.9 million in the quarter compares to a loss of $0.6 million in the comparative period relating to outstanding forward foreign currency instruments. This loss resulted from the significant decline of the Canadian dollar incurred during the period as compared to the rates negotiated in the underlying contracts.
  • Net Loss was $0.003 per share, versus net income per share of $0.005 in first quarter 2014
  • Backlog of $195 million at March 31, 2015, up from $155 million at December 31, 2014

1 Adjusted earnings (loss) before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) is not defined by IFRS. The definition of Adjusted EBITDA does not take into account the Group's share of profit of an associate investment, gains and losses on the disposal of assets, fair value changes in foreign currency forward contracts and non-cash components of stock based compensation. While not IFRS measures, Adjusted EBITDA is used by management, creditors, analysts, investors and other financial stakeholders to assess the Group's performance and management from a financial and operational perspective.

"The first quarter was negatively influenced by tighter margins on steel fabrication work and lower sales of hydrovac trucks both of which are reflective of a challenging economic environment in Alberta. The Media Based Attractions had a good quarter, and was similar to the first quarter of 2014," said Guy Nelson, CEO. " I expect our Media Based Attractions to continue to strengthen as we work through our record backlog and to offset the headwinds we expect to continue to feel in our domestic businesses operating in Alberta."

Mr. Guy Nelson reports

EMPIRE INDUSTRIES WELCOMES CANADA'S COMMITMENT TO CONSTRUCTION FUNDING FOR THE THIRTY METER TELESCOPE

Empire Industries Ltd. welcomes Canada's commitment to construction financing of $243.5-million for the 30-metre-telescope international partnership, announced yesterday evening by Prime Minister Stephen Harper at the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre in Vancouver.

The TMT will be the world's most powerful ground-based telescope, with 81 times more power than the current best telescope. The telescope was conceived and designed by Canadian astronomers and industry in a partnership between Canada, the University of California, the California Institute of Technology, Japan, China and India. TMT will examine the first stars to form in the universe, the black hole at the centre of the Milky Way, and the atmospheres and other properties of planets within the habitable zones of other stars.

"Our participation in the 30-metre-telescope project will generate new capabilities and technologies in Canada, which will help create and maintain high-quality jobs in communities across the country. It is also a real tribute to Canadian know-how that a British Columbia firm was selected to build the telescope's enclosure," stated the Prime Minister.

Today's announcement ensures that two critical telescope elements, the enclosure and the adaptive optics instrument, will be built in Canada. The Coalition for Canadian Astronomy has projected 1,050 person years plus an equal number of indirect jobs from Canada's in-kind contribution of the telescope enclosure and adaptive optics instrument. All work slated for Canada is in highly skilled sectors, and previous investments in astronomy projects have a proven track record of delivering long-term economic spinoffs. The majority of the Canadian government's financial support will be spent in Canada, including a precision steel enclosure by Dynamic Structures, based in Port Coquitlam, B.C.

"All Canadians should be immensely proud of the fact that two critical elements of the TMT have been entrusted to Canadian industry for construction. Canadian industry can compete against anyone in the world when given the opportunity, and we are extremely grateful for the financial commitment from Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Industry Minister James Moore that allows us to build what Canadian industry designed," stated Guy Nelson, president and chief executive officer of Empire Industries and co-chair (industry) of the Coalition for Canadian Astronomy.

Empire Industries, through its wholly owned division, Dynamic Structures, has parlayed its unique expertise gained from building approximately half of the world's largest optical and radio-astronomical enclosures into being a world-leading designer and builder of media-based attractions for the entertainment industry. Dynamic Structures has been actively working on TMT since its inception over 10 years ago. Dynamic Structures, working with Canadian astronomers, designed TMT's calotte enclosure. The TMT enclosure will be built in Canada, exported and installed in Hawaii. Dynamic Structures will be heavily involved in the TMT enclosure supply. The actual details of the enclosure contract have not yet been finalized. Empire Industries will be working with the government of Canada and the TMT International Observatory to finalize the contractual details of the in-kind supply of the enclosure from Canada to the TMT partnership.

About the Coalition for Canadian Astronomy

The Coalition for Canadian Astronomy was formed in 2000 and brings together all Canada's astronomy stakeholders to focus on a plan for international excellence in the field. The coalition is composed of Canadian universities, represented by the Association of Canadian Universities for Research in Astronomy, which has 20 member universities; professional astronomers, as represented by the Canadian Astronomical Society; and Canadian industry, which brings together Canadian companies involved in major astronomy projects.
