We have initiated a comprehensive cost reduction program and suspended our dividend. We are injecting additional rigor and discipline into our execution and risk management processes, further strengthening the integration between our E&C and Fabrication Services operating groups, and accelerating the implementation of innovative practices and technologies. We remain committed to our integrated self-perform model, which we believe will enable us to generate attractive earnings and cash flows over time.” Price and Earnings Consensus Graph As you can see in the graph below, the stock price and future earnings estimates have declined after this recent earnings report.
