Investor Conference. Great Lakes CEO Lasse Petterson and CFO Scott Kornblau recently hosted an investor conference. While short on financials for the disappointing 2022 full year as results are not yet in, management did provide a pathway for improved performance in 2H23 and into 2024, with a longer term goal of exceeding the $150 million of EBITDA generated in 2020.

The Table Is Set. After a disappointing level of bid activity in 2022, the table appears to be overflowing for 2023. Record funding of $8.66 billion for the Army Corp of Engineers, an additional $1.48 billion under the Disaster Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, and passage once again of the Water Resource Development Act should drive the 2023 bid cycle, including a significant number of high margin capital projects, Great Lakes’ specialty.
