Exhibit 99.1


GOLDFIELD ANNOUNCES 2014 RESULTS
MELBOURNE, Florida, March 30, 2015 - The Goldfield Corporation (NYSE MKT: GV) today announced its results for the year ended December 31, 2014. The Goldfield Corporation headquartered in Florida, through its subsidiaries, Power Corporation of America, Southeast Power Corporation and C and C Power Line, Inc. is a leading provider of construction services to electric utilities, with operations primarily in the southeastern and mid-Atlantic regions of the United States including Texas.
Year Ended December 31, 2014
Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2014, increased 10.3% to $98.4 million from $89.2 million in the prior year. This increase was attributable to additional revenue from our acquisition of C and C Power Line, Inc. in January 2014 and growth in our construction under master service agreements (“MSAs”).
Income from continuing operations before taxes for the year ended December 31, 2014, decreased 90.0% to $778,000 from $7.8 million in 2013. This decrease largely resulted from losses aggregating $5.0 million recognized in the fourth quarter on projects for two different utility companies in Texas. These losses were attributable to a combination of factors, including start-up delays in material procurement and adverse weather conditions which adversely affected the allocation of labor and equipment resources. We have made management changes in our Texas operations designed to improve project management.
Our projects are accounted for using the percentage of completion method. In calculating the periodic gains and/or losses on a project, we utilize the most recent information and operating results available. A provision is made in the period for the full amount of an expected loss through project completion. The aforementioned Texas projects are scheduled to be completed by May 2015. In providing for the full amount of expected losses through completion on the Texas projects, we utilized information available through late March 2015.
Operating margins on electrical construction operations were 4.9% in 2014, compared to 13.2% in 2013. Most of this decrease was attributable to the losses on the Texas projects discussed above.
As a result of the foregoing, the net loss for the year ended December 31, 2014, was $(319,000), or $(0.01) loss per share, compared to net income of $3.8 million, or $0.15 per share in the prior year.

Three months ended December 31, 2014
Revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2014, increased 24.7% to $28.4 million from $22.8 million in the prior year.
Income (loss) from continuing operations before taxes for the three months ended December 31, 2014, decreased $5.0 million to a loss of $(2.4) million from income of $2.6 million in the same period in 2013. This decrease was primarily due to the losses incurred in the fourth quarter of 2014 on the Texas projects discussed above.
Net loss for the three months ended December 31, 2014 was $(1.6) million, or $(0.06) loss per share, compared to net income of $1.4 million, or $0.06 per share in the prior year.
Backlog
As previously announced, the Company has been focusing on developing and growing electrical construction services under multi-year MSAs, which provide opportunities for more consistent work load and improved operating efficiencies. This effort scored significant success in 2014. Total backlog as of December 31, 2014 almost quadrupled to $275.0 million compared to $74.5 million as of December 31, 2013. The $275.0 million represents total revenue estimated over the life of the MSAs, as well as estimated revenue from fixed-price contracts, of which about $85.3 million (31.0%) are estimated to be realized within twelve months.
Our backlog represents the uncompleted portion of services to be performed under existing project-specific fixed-price and maintenance contracts and the estimated value of future services that we expect to provide under our existing MSAs. The existing MSAs have initial terms ranging from one year to four years, and some provide for additional renewals at the option of the customer. Our total MSA calculation assumes exercise of the renewal options. Revenue from the assumed exercise of renewal options represents $114.0 million (47.4%) of our total estimated MSA backlog as of December 31, 2014.
The estimated amount of backlog for work under the MSAs is calculated by using recurring historical trends in current MSAs and projected customer needs based upon ongoing communications with the customer. The size and amount of projects we may be awarded under MSAs cannot be determined with certainty and actual future revenue from such contracts may vary substantially from our current estimates.
John H. Sottile, President and Chief Executive Officer of Goldfield said, “The business and prospects of our electrical construction operations remain strong, notwithstanding the problems experienced in the fourth quarter on Texas projects. The revenue growth and dramatic backlog increase in 2014 portend well for the future.” “Our current personnel and resources should permit us to capitalize on our opportunities,” Mr. Sottile added.
