The Go-To Source for Waste Conversion!



Our newsletter is out!

Ah, dear readers – global change is in the wind. And that breeze is blowin' strong against this bulwark of the Waste Conversion realm, Teru Talk. As of our last newsletter issue, we are taking a much needed hiatus. You see, we have become so enthused and inspired by implementing our on-going move of the Teru Talk headquarters that we have taken on a much larger task: moving our data. Now we need to take the Time to get this all reorganized, so are calling Time Out. Oh, never fear: we're still here, monitoring the flow and maintaining the profiles – this retrofit is rather like fixing the aircraft while in mid-flight. We'll send out an occasional blitz to remind you we are still alive and well, if Under Reconstruction. But our Newsletter in particular will take a hiatus.

    published on March 14th, 2018 at 12:01 PM
    ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - March 14, 2018) - Perma-Fix Environmental Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: PESI) (the "Company") today announced results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2017.Mark Duff, Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We achieved $2.4 million of adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) for the year ended December 31, 2017 versus $575,000 for 2016. This improvement was due primarily to the 17% increase in Treatment Segment revenue, reflecting both organizational changes and growth initiatives over the past year. We expect these initiatives to positively impact our revenue through 2018. For the fourth quarter of 2017, waste receipts were up; however, our Treatment Segment revenue recognition was affected by timing and the particular mix of waste we received. Importantly, backlog is growing heading into 2018, as evidenced by a 46% increase at year end. Moreover, we achieved positive adjusted EBITDA for the quarter and anticipate continued improvement in 2018 as we focus on new revenue opportunities in the Treatment Segment and initiatives within our Services Segment begin to take hold."
