GOLDFIELD ANNOUNCES STRONG THIRD QUARTER RESULTS
MELBOURNE, Florida, November 4, 2016 - The Goldfield Corporation (NYSE MKT: GV), today announced strong results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016. 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 electrical construction services for the utility industry and industrial customers, with operations primarily in the Southeast and mid-Atlantic regions of the United States and Texas.
Nine months ended September 30, 2016, compared to the same period in 2015:
Revenue grew 8.4% to $98.7 million from $91.1 million. Electrical construction revenue grew 5.4%, attributable to significant growth in non-MSA electrical construction projects.
Income from continuing operations before taxes increased to $16.6 million from $4.3 million. This increase was fueled by more than a two-fold increase in electrical construction operations income before income taxes(1) resulting mainly from higher revenues and improved operating efficiencies. Margins on electrical construction operations operating income increased to 20.9% from 8.9%.(1) Results for the nine month period in 2015 included a pre-tax operating loss of approximately $4.4 million on certain Texas projects completed in the second quarter of 2015.
Net income grew to $10.4 million ($0.41 per share) from $2.2 million ($0.09 per share).
EBITDA(1) improved to $21.6 million from $9.2 million, as a result of the same factors which drove the growth in our pre-tax operating income.

Three months ended September 30, 2016, compared to the same period in 2015:
Revenue increased 13.3% to $30.7 million from $27.1 million. Electrical construction revenue increased 10.6%, mainly attributable to the increase in non-MSA work.
Income from continuing operations before taxes increased to $3.6 million from $3.0 million. This increase was fueled by a 9.8% increase in electrical construction operations income before income taxes(1) resulting mainly from revenue growth. Margins on electrical construction operations operating income remained steady at 15.5% compared to 15.8% in the same period last year.(1) The decrease in such margin from 20.9% in the current nine month period to 15.5% in the current quarterly period largely resulted from the conclusion of certain particularly high margin projects in the first two quarters of 2016.
Net income grew to $2.3 million ($0.09 per share) from $1.7 million ($0.07 per share).
EBITDA(1) improved to $5.3 million from $4.8 million, as a result of the same factors which drove the growth in our pre-tax operating income.
Backlog
As of September 30, 2016, backlog was $170.3 million compared to $214.5 million as of the same date last year. We expect approximately $75.9 million of this backlog to be completed within 12 months. Backlog is only estimated at a particular point in time and is not determinative of total revenue in any particular period. It does not reflect future revenue from a significant number of short-term projects undertaken and completed between the estimated dates. The decline in backlog resulted primarily from completion of work under existing master service agreements (“MSA”) not yet eligible for renewal. The size and amount of future projects awarded under MSAs cannot be determined with certainty and revenue from such contracts may vary substantially from current estimates.
President and Chief Executive Officer John H. Sottile said, “Our strong results reflect the successful efforts of our team in improving operating efficiencies. We have been able to achieve continued growth while maintaining healthy profit margins. We are committed to the high level of service provided to our existing customers while, at the same time, working to expand our geographic footprint and customer base.”

___________________
(1) Represents Non-GAAP Financial Measure - The non-GAAP financial measures used in this earnings release are more fully described in the accompanying supplemental data and reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the reported GAAP measures. The non-GAAP measures in this press release and on The Goldfield Corporation’s website are provided to enable investors and analysts to evaluate the Company’s performance excluding the effects of certain items that impact the comparability of operating results between reporting periods and compare the Company’s operating results with those of its competitors. These measures should be used to supplement, and not in lieu of, results prepared in conformity with GAAP. Because not all companies use identical calculations, this presentation of electrical construction operations operating income (loss), electrical construction operations income (loss) before taxes and EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly-titled measures of other companies.
Forward-Looking Statements
This press release includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the “safe harbor” provision of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 throughout this document. You can identify these statements by forward-looking words such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “plan,” and “continue” or similar words. We have based these statements on our current expectations about future events. Although we believe that our expectations reflected in or suggested by our forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot assure you that these expectations will be achieved. Our actual results may differ materially from what we currently expect. Factors that may affect the results of our operations include, among others: the level of construction activities by public utilities; the concentration of revenue from a limited number of utility customers; the loss of one or more significant customers; the timing and duration of construction projects for which we are engaged; our ability to estimate accurately with respect to fixed price construction contracts; and heightened competition in the electrical construction field, including intensification of price competition. Other factors that may affect the results of our operations include, among others: adverse weather; natural disasters; effects of climate changes; changes in generally accepted accounting principles; ability to obtain necessary permits from regulatory agencies; our ability to maintain or increase historical revenue and profit margins; general economic conditions, both nationally and in our region; adverse legislation or regulations; availability of skilled construction labor and materials and material increases in labor and material costs; and our ability to obtain additional and/or renew financing. Other important factors which could cause our actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements in this press release are detailed in the Companys Risk Factors and Managements Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operation sections of our Annual Report on Form 10-K and Goldfields other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which are available on Goldfields website: http://www.goldfieldcorp.com. We may not update these forward-looking statements, even in the event that our situation changes in the future, except as required by law.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(Unaudited)
Electrical construction operations operating income (loss), is defined as total operating income (loss) adjusted for non-electrical construction activity within total operating income (loss) including: other operations gross margins (loss) and non-electrical construction selling, general and administrative, depreciation and amortization, and gain or loss on sale of property and equipment. Electrical construction operations operating income (loss), a non-GAAP financial measure, does not purport to be an alternative to the Company’s total operating income (loss) as a measure of operations. Because not all companies use identical calculations, this presentation of electrical construction operations operating income (loss) may not be comparable to other similarly-titled measures of other companies. We believe investors may benefit from the presentation of electrical construction operations operating income (loss) in evaluating our operating performance because it provides our investors with an additional tool to compare our operating performance on a consistent basis by removing the impact of certain items that management believes do not directly reflect our core operations and is useful in comparing our operating results with those of our competitors.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(Unaudited)
EBITDA, a non-GAAP performance measure used by management, is defined as net income (loss) plus: interest expense, provision (benefit) for income taxes and depreciation and amortization, as shown in the table below. EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, does not purport to be an alternative to net income (loss) as a measure of operating performance. Because not all companies use identical calculations, this presentation of EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly-titled measures of other companies. We use, and we believe investors benefit from the presentation of, EBITDA in evaluating our operating performance because it provides us and our investors with an additional tool to compare our operating performance on a consistent basis by removing the impact of certain items that management believes do not directly reflect our core operations. We believe that EBITDA is useful to investors and other external users of our financial statements in evaluating our operating performance because EBITDA is widely used by investors to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to items such as interest expense, taxes, and depreciation and amortization, which can vary substantially from company to company depending upon accounting methods and book value of assets, capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired.
