Argan, Inc. (NYSE: AGX) recently reported financial results for its second quarter ended July 31, 2019.
Our consolidated revenues for the three months ended July 31, 2019 were $63.1M which represented a decline of $73.6M from $136.7M for the three months ended July 31, 2018.
Presently, we estimate that the forecasted costs to perform the contracted work will exceed projected revenues by $30.9M. The total amount of this loss was recognized in our operating results for the six-month period ended July 31, 2019, including $3.4M reflected in our operating results for the three months ended July 31, 2019.
However, an income tax benefit of $6.4M, that was recognized for the current quarter, offset the contract loss for the quarter and resulted in net income attributable to our stockholders of $1.2M, or $0.07 earnings per diluted share, for the three months ended July 31, 2019 contrast to net income attributable to our stockholders of $17.0M, or $1.08 earnings per diluted share, for the previous year quarter.

We are also happy with record revenues at Roberts this quarter though our overall bottom line was negatively influenced by an additional $3.4M loss on our APC project in the United Kingdom.
