HUNTINGTON, W.Va., Dec. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Energy Services of America Corporation (the "Company" or "Energy Services") (OTC QB: ESOA), parent company of C.J. Hughes Construction Company and Nitro Construction Services, announced the filing of the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K.  Net income available to common shareholders was $1.7 million for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2019, which was a $516,000 decrease from $2.2 million in fiscal year 2018.  Revenues were $174.5 million for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2019, which was a $39.0 million increase from $135.5 million in fiscal year 2018.  The Company projects an adjusted EBITDA of $8.0 million, or $0.57 per share, and earnings per share of $0.12 on a weighted average of 14,064,871 common shares outstanding for fiscal year 2019.  The projected backlog at September 30, 2019 was $63.0 million

Douglas Reynolds, President, commented on the announcement.  "The past couple years have been tough in the pipeline industry in our region.  We started a twenty-mile pipeline project in northern West Virginia in June 2018 that we successfully completed in September 2019.  While that project primarily contributed to our increased revenues for fiscal year 2019, we had to navigate significant obstacles to minimize the loss and maintain a cash positive position on the project. In the end, it was the diversity of the services that we provide that allowed us to overcome those challenges."
