SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Todd Shipyards Corporation (NYSE:TOD) announced that the U.S. Navy (“Navy”) has awarded to its wholly owned subsidiary, Todd Pacific Shipyards Corporation (“Todd Pacific” or the “Company”), a $6,521,695.00 modification to previously awarded contract N00024-08-C-4416. This contract modification represents an exercised option for the Planned Incremental Availability (“PIA”) for USS JOHN C. STENNIS (CVN74) (“Stennis”), at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard which will commence on May 17, 2010 and is expected to be completed November 17, 2010. This modification represents the authorization of additional repairs and alterations of various ship’s systems and equipment throughout the aircraft carrier Stennis, and is a portion of the work to be completed by Todd Pacific during the overhaul period. The Company anticipates that additional work on the carrier will be definitized by the Navy, resulting in total contract modifications in the range of $21-24 million.
Todd’s work in support of the PIA of the Stennis is being performed pursuant to the Company’s five-year Multi-Ship Multi-Option (“MSMO”) contract with the Navy for the overhaul and continued maintenance of the aircraft carriers stationed at Bremerton and Everett, Washington. The cost-type MSMO contract was awarded to Todd Pacific in 1999 and 2004 for five years each, and was awarded again in 2008 for an additional five years.
