Independent Auditor’s Report

To the Members of

TerraSea Environmental Solutions, LLC

We have audited the accompanying financial statements of TerraSea Environmental Solutions, LLC, which comprise the balance sheet as of December 31, 2014, and the related statements of operations, members’ equity (deficit), and cash flows for the year then ended, and the related notes to the financial statements.

Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements

Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America; this includes the design, implementation, and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

Auditor’s Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the TerraSea Environmental Solutions, LLC’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the TerraSea Environmental Solutions, LLC’s internal control. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.

Opinion

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of TerraSea Environmental Solutions, LLC as of December 31, 2014, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Other Matter

The accompanying balance sheet of TerraSea Environmental Solutions, LLC as of December 31, 2013, and the related statements of operations, members equity (deficit) and cash flows for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, were not audited, reviewed, or compiled by us and, accordingly, we do not express an opinion or any other form of assurance on them.

Uncertainty Regarding Going Concern

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 2 to the financial statements, the Company has suffered recurring losses from operations and has a net equity deficiency. This condition raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include adjustments, if any, that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. Our opinion is not modified with respect to that matter.

1. NATURE OF BUSINESS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Organization  — TerraSea Environmental Solutions, LLC (the “Company” or “TerraSea”) is a limited liability company (LLC) organized on July 9, 2011, under Delaware law. TerraSea is 50% owned by Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Environmental, Inc. (“Great Lakes”), a member, and 50% owned by Environmental Remediation Holdings (“ERH”), a member, and is governed by a Board of Managers under the terms of a limited liability company agreement.

TerraSea provides water and land based environmental services in the area of clean up and remediation of sediments, soil and groundwater for both marine and land based projects. The joint venture was established to capitalize on the expertise of the two equal partners for projects in the United States offering optimally engineered global solutions for environmental cleanup needs.

The members in TerraSea have commenced the winddown of operations.

Use of Estimates  — The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect certain reported amounts and disclosures. Accordingly, actual results could differ from those estimates.

Revenue and Cost Recognition on Contracts  — The Company’s contracts for dredging services are fixed-price contracts, which provide for remeasurement based on actual quantities dredged. The Company’s contracts for environmental and remediation projects are also fixed-price contracts, with others performed on a time-and-materials basis. Contract revenues are recognized under the percentage-of-completion method based on the Company’s engineering estimates of the physical percentage completed for dredging projects and based on costs incurred to date compared to total estimated costs for fixed-price environmental and remediation projects. For dredging projects, costs of contract revenues are adjusted to reflect the gross profit percentage expected to be achieved upon ultimate completion. For environmental and remediation contracts, contract revenues are adjusted to reflect the estimated gross profit percentage. Revisions in estimated gross profit percentages are recorded in the period during which the change in circumstances is experienced or becomes known. As the duration of most of the Company’s contracts is one year or less, the cumulative net impact of these revisions in estimates, individually and in the aggregate across our projects, does not significantly affect our results across reporting periods. Provisions for estimated losses on contracts in progress are made in the period in which such losses are determined. Change orders are not recognized in revenue until the recovery is probable and collectability is reasonably assured. Claims for additional compensation due to the Company are not recognized in contract revenues until such claims are settled. Billings on contracts are generally submitted after verification with the customers of physical progress and may not match the timing of revenue recognition. The difference between amounts billed and recognized as revenue is reflected in the balance sheet as either contract revenues in excess of billings or billings in excess of contract revenues. Modifications may be negotiated when a change from the original contract specification is encountered, and a change in project scope, performance methodology and/or material

disposal is necessary. Thus, the resulting modification is considered a change in the scope of the original project to which it relates. Significant expenditures incurred incidental to major contracts are deferred and recognized as contract costs based on contract performance over the duration of the related project. These expenditures are reported as prepaid expenses.

The components of costs of contract revenues include labor, equipment (including depreciation, maintenance, insurance and long-term rentals), subcontracts, fuel and project overhead. Hourly labor is generally hired on a project-by-project basis. Costs of contract revenues vary significantly depending on the type and location of work performed and assets utilized.

Income Taxes — The Company is treated as a partnership for federal and state income tax reporting purposes and is not subject to corporate income taxes on the taxable income. For income tax purposes, the Company reports income on the percentage of completion, capitalized cost method of accounting.

Classification of Current Assets and Liabilities  — The Company includes in current assets and liabilities amounts realizable and payable in the normal course of contract completion, unless completion of such contracts extends significantly beyond one year.

Cash Equivalents  — The Company considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity at purchase of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

Accounts Receivable — Net  — Accounts receivable represent amounts due or billable under the terms of contracts with customers, including amounts related to retainage. The Company anticipates collection of retainage generally within one year, and accordingly presents retainage as a current asset. The Company provides an allowance for estimated uncollectible accounts receivable when events or conditions indicate that amounts outstanding are not recoverable.

Fair Value —The carrying value of accounts receivable and other financial instruments included in current assets and current liabilities approximates fair value due to the short-term maturities of these instruments.

2. GOING CONCERN AND MANAGEMENT’S PLANS

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles, which contemplate continuation of the company as a going concern. However, as of December 31, 2014, the Company has suffered recurring losses from operations and has accumulated a net equity deficiency of $20,714. These and other factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to obtain additional funding from its members. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include adjustments, if any that might that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

3. ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE AND CONTRACTS IN PROGRESS

Accounts receivable at December 31, 2014 and 2013 are as follows:

 

     2014      2013
(Unaudited)
 

Completed contracts

   $ 697      $ —     

Contracts in process

     —           4,397  

Retainage

     1,182        710  
  

 

 

    

 

 

 

Total accounts receivable

$ 1,879   $ 5,107  
  

 

 

    

 

 

 

The components of contracts in progress at December 31, 2014 and 2013 are as follows:

 

     2014      2013
(Unaudited)
 

Contract revenues in excess of billings:

     

Costs and earnings for contracts in progress

   $ 9,500      $ 7,393   

Amounts billed

     (2,774      (7,098

Total contract revenues in excess of billings

$ 6,727   $ 295   
  

 

 

    

 

 

 

The carrying value of contract receivables and other amounts arising out of normal contract activities, including retentions, are estimated to approximate fair value.

 

4. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Commitments include the usual obligations of construction contractors for completion of contracts and those incurred in the ordinary course of business.

Equipment and facilities are rented on a short-term, as-needed basis. At December 31, 2014 and 2013, the Company has no operating lease agreements.

 

11


5. MAJOR CUSTOMERS AND CONCENTRATIONS OF RISK

The Company has two customers that represent 84.2% and 15.8%, respectively, of contract revenues in 2014. At December 31, 2014, these two customers accounted for 81.2% and 18.8%, respectively, of accounts receivable, including contract revenues in excess of billings and retainage.

All of the Company’s revenues and accounts receivable, including revenues in excess of billings and retainage at December 31, 2013 and for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, were on one project with one customer.

 

6. RELATED-PARTY TRANSACTIONS

The Company has no direct employees and pays no invoices directly, so each member incurs expenses on behalf of TerraSea and recharges the costs to the joint venture. Since inception, the Company received advances of $22,898 from Great Lakes and $529 from ERH, net of funds retained by members from project receivables collections, to fund working capital needs of TerraSea. The outstanding balance is shown as advances from members in the balance sheet.

 

7. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

The Company has recorded or disclosed, as appropriate, all events or transactions that occurred after December 31, 2014 up through March 6, 2015, the date these financial statements were available for issuance.

Independent Auditors’ Report

To the Partners of

Amboy Aggregates Joint Venture and Subsidiaries:

We have audited the accompanying consolidated financial statements of Amboy Aggregates Joint Venture and Subsidiaries (the “Companies”) which comprise the consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2014, and the related consolidated statements of income and partners’ capital and cash flows for the year then ended, and the related notes to the consolidated financial statements.

Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements

Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these consolidated financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America; this includes the design, implementation, and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of consolidated financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

Auditors’ Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free from material misstatement.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditors’ judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the consolidated financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the consolidated financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the consolidated financial statements.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.

Opinion

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of Amboy Aggregates Joint Venture and Subsidiaries as of December 31, 2014, and the results of their consolidated operations and their consolidated cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Other Matter

The consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2013 and for the years ending December 31, 2013 and 2012 were not subjected to audit, review, or compilation procedures and, accordingly, we do not express an opinion, a conclusion, nor provide any other assurance on such statements.

Amboy Aggregates Joint Venture and Subsidiaries

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

December 31, 2014, 2013 (unaudited) and 2012 (unaudited)

Note 1—Organization and business

Amboy Aggregates (“Amboy”) was established on January 1, 1989 as an equal Joint Venture between Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Partnership and Ralph Clayton and Sons Materials, L.P.

Amboy operates principally in one business segment which is to dredge, process, transport and sell fine aggregate in the New York Metropolitan area.

Note 2—Summary of significant accounting policies

Principles of consolidation

On April 27, 2010 Amboy purchased the remaining 50% interest in New York Sand & Stone, LLC (“NYS&S”) whose principal business activity is to process and sell fine aggregate and stone in the New York Metropolitan area. The liability of Amboy is limited to Amboy’s total equity in NYS&S. NYS&S shall terminate no later than July 31, 2027.

During 2006, Amboy formed a wholly-owned subsidiary, Newport, LLC (A Limited Liability Partnership). Since formation, there has been no activity at Newport, LLC. The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Amboy, NYS&S and Newport, LLC. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Amboy, NYS&S and Newport, LLC are collectively referred to as the Partnership.

On October 21, 2014, the Company sold its 100% interest in NYS&S (see Note 3).

Use of estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect certain reported amounts and disclosures. Accordingly, actual results could differ from those estimates.

Concentration risks

Financial instruments which potentially subject the Partnership to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash and accounts receivable. The Partnership maintains its cash with high credit quality financial institutions. Accounts at these institutions are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Company (“FDIC”) up to $250,000. As of December 31, 2014, the Partnership’s cash balance exceeded the current FDIC insured amount by approximately $9,843,000.

The Partnership generally extends credit to its customers, a significant portion of which are in the construction industry. During 2014, 2013 and 2012, approximately 62%, 32% (unaudited), and 29% (unaudited), respectively, of the Partnership’s net sales were derived from nonrelated major customers. During 2014 and 2013, three and four customers accounted for 66% and 64% (unaudited) of the Company’s gross accounts receivable, respectively.

Amboy Aggregates Joint Venture and Subsidiaries

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

December 31, 2014, 2013 (unaudited) and 2012 (unaudited)

 

The Partnership closely monitors the extension of credit to its customers while maintaining allowances for potential credit losses. On a periodic basis, the Partnership evaluates its accounts receivable and establishes an allowance for doubtful accounts, based on a history of past write-offs and collections and current credit conditions and does not have a policy for requiring collateral. Management does not believe that significant credit risk exists at December 31, 2014.

The Partnership’s direct labor is supplied primarily by unions, which have collective bargaining agreements. For the years ended December 31, 2014, 2013 and 2012, 58%, 77% (unaudited) and 76% (unaudited), respectively, of the Partnership’s labor force is subject to collective bargaining agreements, which expires on January 31, 2016.

Inventory

Inventory is stated at the lower of cost, determined using the first-in, first-out (FIFO) method, or market.

Property, plant and equipment

Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the respective assets.

Impairment of long-lived assets

The Company reviews long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in business circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the asset may not be fully recoverable. If facts and circumstances indicate that the Company’s long-lived assets might be impaired, the estimated future undiscounted cash flows associated with the long-lived asset would be compared to its carrying amounts to determine if a write-down to fair value is necessary. If a write-down is required, the amount is determined by estimation of the present value of net discounted cash flows. During the years ended December 31, 2014 and 2013 (unaudited), there were no facts or circumstances that would indicate that the assets may not be fully recoverable.

Permits

Costs incurred in connection with obtaining permits to dredge the Partnership’s products are amortized on the straight-line basis over the term of the related permits. As of December 31, 2014, estimated amortization expense for each of the next five years is $7,055 and $24,690 thereafter.

Revenue recognition

Sales are recognized when revenue is realized or becomes realizable and has been earned. In general, revenue is recognized when the earnings process is complete and collectability is reasonably assured which is usually upon shipment of the product. Amounts billed related to shipping and handling are included in revenue.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

December 31, 2014, 2013 (unaudited) and 2012 (unaudited)

 

Shipping and handling costs

Shipping and handling costs are included in cost of sales.

Income taxes

Income or loss of the Partnership is includible in the income tax returns of the partners in proportion to their respective interests. Accordingly, there is no provision for income taxes in the accompanying consolidated financial statements.

The Partnership has no unrecognized tax benefits at December 31, 2014. The Partnership’s Federal and state income tax returns prior to fiscal year 2011 are closed and management continually evaluates expiring statutes of limitations, audits, proposed settlements, changes in tax law and new authoritative rulings.

The Partnership recognizes interest and penalties associated with income tax matters as part of the income tax provision, if applicable, and includes accrued interest and penalties with the related tax liability in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.

Reclassification

Certain amounts in the 2013 and 2012 financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the 2014 presentation.

Subsequent events

The Partnership has evaluated subsequent events through March 27, 2015, which is the date the financial statements were available to be issued.

Note 3—Discontinued operations

In accordance with the membership interest purchase agreement dated October 21, 2014, the Company sold 100% of the interest in NYS&S. The purchase price was approximately $15,181,000, resulting in a loss on sale of discontinued operations of approximately $2,309,000 reported in the consolidated statement of income and partners’ capital for the year ended December 31, 2014.

In connection with the sale, proceeds received during 2014 amounted to approximately $11,650,000. The remaining unpaid balance of the purchase price is held in escrow, to be released to the Company upon certain events. This escrow amount is recorded as restricted cash in the consolidated balance sheet for the year ended December 31, 2014 and will be used towards the restoration of two piers located at the NYS&S site.

Note 7—Due from insurance claim

As of December 31, 2013, the Partnership had been approved by its insurance company for proceeds of $89,141 (unaudited) related to storm damages. This amount was received in January 2014, and as such, is reflected as receivables as of December 31, 2013.

Note 8—Long-term debt

The Partnership has a promissory note payable (the “Note”) with a former member of NYS&S with remaining outstanding principal of $4,587,996 as of December 31, 2014. The note, which was secured by interest in NYS&S, contained a covenant prohibiting the sale of the collateral. At December 31, 2014, the Company was in breach of the covenant as a result of the sale of NYS&S. Under the terms of the agreement, violation of the covenant entitles the holder to accelerate upon notice of the amounts due, which include, in addition to the principal and accrued interest, a yield maintenance fee. At December 31, 2014, the entire amount of the note, $4,587,996, has been included in current liabilities. In addition, the Company accrued approximately $917,900 representing accrued interest and yield maintenance fee, which is included in the current portion of long-term debt in the consolidated balance sheet for the year ended December 31, 2014.

Note 9—Retirement plans

Pension and annuity plans

Employees covered by a union agreement were included in multi-employer pension and annuity plans to which the Partnership made contributions in accordance with the contractual union agreement. The Partnership ceased contributions to the Operating Engineers Local No. 825 Pension Plan effective February 19, 2011 and any future contributions were paid to the annuity fund. As a result of withdrawing from the pension fund, the Partnership was obligated to pay $328,628, plus interest of $47,445, of which $77,687, including interest of $5,834, was paid during 2014 and $58,262, including interest of $7,245, was paid during 2013. At December 31, 2014 and 2013, other liabilities and accrued expenses included $12,079, and $76,547 and $91,162 (unaudited) and $69,318 (unaudited), respectively, related to this withdrawal obligation.

Principal payment requirements of the withdrawal obligation in each of the years subsequent to December 31, 2014 are as follows:

 

Year Ending

December 31,

   Amount  

2015

   $ 76,547   

2016

The Partnership maintains a retirement plan qualifying under Section 401(k) of the Internal Revenue Code which allows eligible employees to defer a portion of their income through contributions to the plan. Under the provisions of the plan, the Partnership makes contributions for the benefit of the employees, subject to certain limitations. The Partnership’s contributions for the years ended December 31, 2014, 2013 and 2012 were $63,029, $86,136 (unaudited) and $75,977 (unaudited), respectively.

Multi-employer pension plans

The Partnership contributes to multi-employer pension plans under collective bargaining agreements which provide retirement benefits for its various union employees. The risks of participating in multi-employer plans are different from single employer plans as assets contributed are available to provide benefits to employees of other employers and unfunded obligations from an employer that discontinues contributions are the responsibility of all remaining employers. In addition, in the event of a plan’s termination or the Partnership’s withdrawal from a plan, the Partnership may be liable for a portion of the plan’s unfunded vested benefits. The Partnership is not aware of any expected plan terminations.

The Partnership’s contributions to these plans were less than 5% of each such plan’s total contributions. Unless otherwise noted, with regards to the operating Engineers Local No. 825 Pension Plan, the most recent Pension Protection Act zone status available in 2014 and 2013 is for the plan’s year-end at June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively. With regards to the Central Pension Fund of the International Union of Operating Engineers and Participating Employers, the most recent Pension Protection Act zone status available in 2014 and 2013 is for the Plan’s year end at January 31, 2015 and January 31, 2014. The zone status is based on information that the Partnership received from the plan and is certified by the plan’s actuary. Among other factors, plans in the red zone are generally less than 65% funded, plans in the yellow zone are less than 80% funded and plans in the green zone are at least 80% funded. The “FIP/RP Status Pending/Implemented” column indicates plans for which a financial improvement plan (“FIP”) or a rehabilitation plan (“RP”) is either pending or has been implemented.

Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements

Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America; this includes the design, implementation, and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

Auditors’ Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditors’ judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.

Lower Main Street Development, LLC (the “Company”) was established on February 20, 2003 as an equal partnership between Fifty Three Dredging Company and DBD, L.L.C.

The Company is organized to acquire, own, manage, mortgage, develop, sell, and otherwise deal with the property located in the City of South Amboy, New Jersey. Additionally, the liability of the members is limited to the members’ total equity.

Note 2—Summary of significant accounting policies

Basis of presentation

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on the accrual basis of accounting in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Use of estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect certain reported amounts and disclosures. Accordingly, actual results could differ from those estimates.

Concentration risks

Financial instruments which potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash. The Company maintains its cash with high credit quality financial institutions. Accounts at these institutions are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Company (“FDIC”) up to $250,000. As of December 31, 2014, the Company’s cash balance does not exceed the current FDIC insured amount.

Revenue recognition

Rental income, which is generally earned pursuant to month-to-month leases, is recognized as earned.

Income taxes

Income or loss of the Company is includible in the income tax returns of the members in proportion to their respective interests. Accordingly, there is no provision for income taxes in the accompanying financial statements.

The Company has no unrecognized tax benefits at December 31, 2014 and 2013. The Company’s Federal and state income tax returns prior to fiscal year 2011 are closed and management continually evaluates expiring statutes of limitations, audits, proposed settlements, changes in tax law and new authoritative rulings.

The Company recognizes interest and penalties associated with income tax matters as part of the income tax provision, if applicable, and includes accrued interest and penalties with the related tax liability in the accompanying balance sheets.
