Perma-Fix Announces New $15 Million Contract Award

ATLANTA, GA / ACCESSWIRE / December 23, 2019 / Perma-Fix Environmental Services, Inc. (NASDAQ:PESI) (the "Company") today announced it has been awarded a new contract, as part of a Joint Venture ("JV"), in its Services Segment valued at approximately $15 million over the next 18 months with opportunities for expansion to nearly $20 million in total revenue.

Mark Duff, Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We have recently been awarded a new project supporting the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory through the Department of Energy ("DOE") to include remediation, construction and waste management services. The award was made to a Joint Venture partnership between Perma-Fix and ERRG, which have been working together on similar projects for several years. This award further increases our funded backlog and bolsters our Services Segment revenues beginning in the first quarter of 2020. The Perma-Fix/ERRG JV was able to leverage our recent experience conducting complex remediation and demolition in radiological environments with potential for additional expansion as the project evolves. This win builds on our momentum established over the last two quarters to position Perma-Fix for continued growth in our Services Segment."
