New Jersey-based Covanta Holding Corp. has posted a fourth quarter 2013 net income loss of 66 per cent down to $28 million compared to the same period in 2012 at $83 million.
The primary driver for the decline was lower construction revenue due to its Honolulu facility expansion in 2012, the company said in a statement.
Q4 revenue for the company dropped two per cent to $422 million from $429 million in 2012. For the year, revenue slipped one per cent to $1.63 billion from $1.64 billion in 2012.
“In 2013, we took a number of concrete steps to create long-term value, most notably signing a 20-year waste contract with New York City, acquiring the Camden (N.J. waste-to-energy) facility, extending several municipal client contracts and investing in numerous metal recovery systems,” said Anthony Orlando, Covanta president and CEO, in a statement.
For 2014, Orlando added, “We are focused on optimizing our energy-from-waste business by continuing to provide great customer service, extending contracts, executing our proactive maintenance program, increasing metal recovery and growing our sustainable waste solutions business.”
