    NEW YORK, Nov. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HC2 Holdings, Inc. (“HC2”) (NYSE: HCHC), a diversified holding company, announced today that its operating subsidiary DBM Global Inc. (“DBM Global”) (OTC: DBMG), a family of companies providing fully integrated structural and steel construction services, has completed its previously announced acquisition of GrayWolf Industrial, a premier specialty maintenance, repair and installation services provider.

    “Through this acquisition, which is expected to be accretive to DBM Global’s annual Adjusted EBITDA by just over $20 million and to provide what we believe will be stable free cash flow, we will diversify our revenue and service offering beyond fabrication and erecting into heavy maintenance and repair in the petrochemical, pulp & paper, oil refinery and power markets,” said Rustin Roach, President and Chief Executive Officer of DBM Global. “We look forward to welcoming the GrayWolf team to the DBM Global family and to offering a more extensive value proposition to our existing customers, while also cross-selling to GrayWolf's impressive list of blue-chip customers.”

    “We believe GrayWolf’s strong culture, outstanding reputation in the industry and complementary services will allow DBM to reach more end-markets, while at the same time helping to counter the cyclicality of the commercial construction market given the long-term and recurring nature of GrayWolf’s maintenance and service contracts,” said Philip Falcone, HC2’s Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President. “Through this transaction, we are closer to our goal of making DBM a $1 billion revenue and $100 million Adjusted EBITDA industrial services company.”

    For nearly 40 years, GrayWolf has developed an outstanding reputation for on-time deliveries, commitment to safety and furnishing quality services and products. GrayWolf provides services including specialty welding, maintenance and rigging, among others, to clients across the United States and select international locations in a variety of heavy industrial and mechanical industries, ranging from power to petrochemical to pulp & paper to mining. The focus on maintenance and service is complementary to the existing DBM Global fabrication and erection capabilities.

    The purchase price for the acquisition, inclusive of $80 million of assumed debt of GrayWolf, was $135 million (subject to working capital adjustments), which was financed with $15 million of cash from DBM Global’s balance sheet and $40 million of cash from HC2’s insurance subsidiary via an investment in DBM Global’s direct parent, DBM Global Intermediate Holdco, and an $80 million term loan incurred by DBM Global used to refinance the assumed debt of GrayWolf. 

    The Company also announced that Michael Lampert, GrayWolf’s Chief Operating Officer (“COO”), has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of the new GrayWolf subsidiary of DBM Global, reporting to Rustin Roach.  Mr. Lampert is a 30+ year integrated sales, engineering, manufacturing and finance veteran and has been with GrayWolf for the last decade.  In his most recent role as COO, he was responsible for all operations across GrayWolf’s four business segments including sales and estimating, project execution, safety, quality and human resources.  Previously, Mr. Lampert served as GrayWolf’s Chief Financial Officer where he was responsible for all financial operations across the business.  Prior to joining GrayWolf in 2008, Mr. Lampert spent nearly 20 years with Integrated Energy Technologies where he served most recently as President based in Evansville, Indiana. Mr. Lampert also served as a United States Air Force officer and obtained a Master of Science and Bachelor of Arts degree from Southern Illinois University.

    Mr. Lampert commented, “On behalf of all the GrayWolf team members, we look forward to being part of the DBM Global and HC2 family and leveraging each other’s complementary services, customer bases and culture to drive synergies across the business.”

    Trump Administration OKs Seismic Surveys That Can Harm Marine Life Watch VideoThe Trump administration has given the go-ahead for a series of seismic surveys to look for oil off the Eastern Seaboard, a move that has already sparked criticism. 

    The National Marine Fisheries Service OK'd the surveys along the Atlantic coastline. Seismic tests use blasts of air to produce sound waves to look for oil reserves beneath the ocean floor.

    Environmental advocates have criticized the surveys for the effect those sounds can have on marine life. Studies have found they can be deafening to whales, dolphins, and other marine animals with acute senses of hearing. 

    They're also typically a first step toward offshore oil drilling. A number of politicians, including several Republican governors on the affected coast have opposed offshore oil drilling in recent years.

    In addition to the bipartisan political opposition to the surveys, they could also face legal challenges aimed at delaying or stopping them altogether.  Reported by Newsy 14 hours ago.

    Jones, Frankel, Dwyer and their MX-5 racer

    After risking it all to protect other people’s lives, racing helped save theirs. This is when motorsport really matters

    "There is not a doubt in my mind that racing saved my life.” As statements go it’s pretty bold, but when it comes from a US Marine who’s lost one leg above the knee and who bears all over his remaining limbs the scars of both his catastrophic injuries and more than 50 operations required to rebuild his shattered body, he can be believed. He is Liam Dwyer. 

    Today he is sharing a Mazda MX-5 Global Cup racer in the 12-hour Race of Remembrance, at a wind-torn, rain-soaked Anglesey circuit with two other military men, all sharing the unenviable distinction of being in the wrong part of Afghanistan at the wrong time and being blown up by improvised explosive devices. 

    One is a British paratrooper called Andy Jones. Andy is built like one of the larger Alps. Because he was merely near the IED and because he was frankly bloody lucky, he kept his legs. The shrapnel passed right through him, so hot it conveniently cauterised the wounds on the way, missing every major blood vessel. But he still remembers looking at his thigh and noting there was now an exhaust manifold sticking out of it. “They pack ’em with anything they can find,” he says flatly. 

    And then there’s Paul Vice, Vicey to one and all. If you heard his story, you’d make a film out of it, except someone already did. He’d already won the Military Cross when he trod on the IED. His most immediate problem was not a leg so mangled it would later be removed, but a broken neck with a 90% severed carotid artery – a British record among survivors, he proudly assures me. He lived only because a fellow Marine thoughtfully stuck his knee into the wound. But he still had a stroke, resulting in brain damage, and lost part of his sight and hearing. His heart stopped twice on the Chinook flying hospital which ran out of blood trying to save his life. Once stabilised, more than 400 lumps of metal were pulled out of his body. He’s described as the most injured man to survive Afghanistan. If you fancy losing an hour on YouTube, I’d commend The Commando who Refused to Die. 

    There was a fourth driver too. His name is Andrew Frankel and, given the company he was keeping, that’s enough about him. 

    The Race of Remembrance is an event like no other. Organised by Forces charity Mission Motorsport, it is part fundraiser, part opportunity to pursue its aim of helping injured veterans and their dependants ‘race, retrain and recover’. This year, we were racing for its Canadian/US counterpart Operation Motorsport (hence Liam), and dozens of beneficiaries from both organisations were dotted up and down the pit lane – some driving, many more working in the pits spannering cars, changing tyres and refuelling. 

    Mission Motorsport is only six years old but has provided more than 4000 training days for almost 1300 beneficiaries, leading to over 200 placements and more than 100 jobs. Run by veterans for veterans, it is an organisation fuelled by compassion, determination, love and, above all, banter. No one escapes and when it starts between Marines from either side of the Atlantic, stand clear. At the Heroes’ Dinner the night before the race, all four of us were on stage when Vicey rolled up the trousers of Liam’s rather battered remaining lower limb and said “call that a leg?” in front of the 450-strong crowd. To which Liam replied: “Great, coming from a man with a paper cut.” 

    The race itself goes into the night on Saturday, then restarts again on Sunday morning, stopping for an 11am remembrance service in the pit lane before ending that afternoon. Mission Motorsport boss Major Jim Cameron describes the whole weekend “as a remembrance service with a motor race built around it”, and he’s right. When we fell silent, 100 years to the minute after the end of World War I, well, it was just about the most moving thing I’ve done. 

    Really, we shouldn’t have been on the grid at all. Our car only arrived in the UK the day before qualifying, had to be fitted with a Sadev sequential gearbox overnight (clutch work is not easy for an above-knee amputee like Liam) and was then almost nicked off its trailer on its way to Anglesey. It had never turned a wheel in anger and therefore arrived with no set-up and on quasi-slick tyres that would doubtless work beautifully on a warm, dry track. Anglesey is rarely either in November. 

    We fiddled with roll bars, damper rates and tyre pressures through practice and qualifying and could see there was a superb race car in there somewhere, but on the wrong tyres in the wrong conditions the quicker we made it go, the more it wanted to throw us into the scenery. Our choice was fast and twitchy or slow and (relatively) stable. For a 12-hour race, the latter was the only viable option. 

    Vicey started because he’s rarely happier than when duking it out on the opening laps. These days, he races in the British GT Championship and is extremely useful at the wheel. Fairly unambiguous hand gestures every lap told us how he thought the car was handling in the appalling conditions but, just over an hour later, he handed over to me without drama. I then spent 90 minutes slithering around in the half light, dusk and finally dark, wishing we were on the right tyres. The MX-5 felt caged and, had we the means to let it loose, I expect it would have raised a lot of eyebrows. This is no street car with a roll-cage, but a properly developed racer. 

    Then Andy climbed in and had an equally uneventful time before handing over to Liam, who was halfway into his stint when the propshaft broke. We were already using our spare and as it is a unique prototype part due to its need to connect to the Sadev, that was it. We were out less than five hours into a 12-hour race. So we did what race drivers used to do in such circumstances and retired to the bar. 

    Liam was clearly pained the car had quit on his watch, so Andy and Vicey did what any caring team-mate would and ratcheted up the banter to ever higher levels. To most it would seem pretty heartless, kicking a man when he’s clearly down, but it’s nothing of the sort. It’s how these battle-hardened veterans actually support each other. It is their code, and it works. Soon Liam was once more giving as good as he got. 

    Nor were we quite done racing, after all. The next day, Mission Motorsport made sure we were all slotted into other cars; I ended up in an automatic, diesel Honda CR-V. 

    And as I was sliding around, getting in everyone’s way, it occurred to me that, although I’ve been racing for a quarter of a century, the Race of Remembrance is the only actually important race I have ever done or will ever do, and I hope I’d feel the same way if I was a Formula 1 driver. Like Liam said, racing saved his life and I know that, to one extent or another, the others feel the same way. From what I can see and for most of these veterans, the injuries you can see are as nothing compared with those you cannot. 

    Put it this way, Andy went from being a member of one of the most elite regiments on earth to living rough, his entire life packed into six bin bags. Last year, he did the Race of Remembrance, his first ever race. He is now settled with a wonderful family and a new job using his unique qualifications to help civilians cope with their mental health problems. So I’ll leave the last words to him. 

    “Without the Race of Remembrance, I probably wouldn’t be here.” An important race? A life-saver, no less.

    *The Mazda MX-5 Global Cup car*

    MX-5s have been racing since they were launched nearly 30 years ago, and as an official series since 2003. The fourth-generation race car is designed to compete all over the world, hence ‘Global’. It is a 2.0-litre MX-5 with its interior and windows removed and fitted with all the necessary safety systems including a Nascar-standard roll-cage.

    Its engine is showroom specification save a different ECU and exhaust, but the suspension and brakes are to full race spec. It felt so inherently quick that if we’d had a day’s testing and some appropriate tyres, it could have done shockingly well. Maybe next year…

    Sunlover Moore Reef pontoon off Cairns becomes ground zero for filming the event as leading coral scientists embark on most ambitious coral reseeding project ever

    QUEENSLAND, Australia (PRWEB) December 01, 2018

    Like an orchestra in rehearsal, hard and soft corals on Moore Reef off the coast of Cairns, Queensland slowly began releasing eggs and sperm on Tuesday night ahead of what marine biologists believe will be a mass synchronized coral spawning event on the Great Barrier Reef starting Thursday, November 29th.

    While Marine biologists and veteran coral chasers, Stuart Ireland from Calypso Productions, Gareth Phillips from Reef Teach and Pablo Cogollos from Sunlover Reef Cruises were based at Sunlover Moore Reef pontoon, 29 miles off the coast of Cairns to film the event for marine enthusiasts around the world, a group of leading coral scientists are set to deploy the most ambitious coral reseeding project ever undertaken.

    Led by Professor Peter Harrison, the man who first discovered coral spawning in 1982, the team will harvest millions of coral eggs and sperm from nearby reefs to grow new coral Larvae which will be released back onto damaged reefs in the Vlasoff and Arlington Reef area off Cairns.

    Best described as “IVF for the reef”, Professor Peter Harrison said, “This is the first time that the entire process of large-scale larval rearing and settlement will be undertaken directly on reefs on the Great Barrier Reef. Our team will be restoring hundreds of square meters with the goal of getting to square kilometers in the future, a scale not attempted previously.”

    Both scientific parties agree that a successful spawning will be proof that the Reef is resilient and has potential to recover from the back-to-back bleaching events of 2016 and 2017.

    Mr. Ireland said, “Good spawning is important. It shows the plumbing is working and it means the reef is alive. Coral spawning brings genetic variability, strength and resilience to the reef and is a powerful symbol of ongoing life on the Great Barrier Reef.”

    2018 marks the 22nd time that Mr. Ireland has captured the Great Barrier Reef as it erupts into a new cycle of life. This year is the seventh time he will document the event from Sunlover’s Moore Reef pontoon, which is noted for its wide variety of adjacent corals as well as the practicalities of offering a stable base to light the Reef for filming.

    “Thursday was the main event as Acropora, Montipora and other stony corals mass spawned, ejecting tiny pink and mauve balls representing either eggs or bundled egg and sperm masses as well as cloud-like white slicks known as 'smokers' representing individual male colonies. Being in that is like going through an upside-down snow storm,” Mr. Ireland said.

    Cairns-based marine biologist and educator, Gareth Phillips, will use Calypso Production’s footage as part of a Reef Teach presentation on the Great Barrier Reef.

    “I focused on the marine creatures during Tuesday night’s spawning,” Mr. Phillips said. “Seeing invertebrates such as worms and shrimps is amazing as their behavior, as well as the look of the Reef, is so different on the night of the spawning. It is an extraordinary time to be out on the Great Barrier Reef.”

    The annual coral spawning, one of nature’s greatest events, takes place every year two to six nights after the October / November full moons when there is little movement of water between low and high tides and when temperatures hover around 80-82F.

    To follow the progress of the Larval Restoration Project and the annual spawning event, follow Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (@citizensGBR). Anyone going out to the Reef to view/experience the spawning can upload their images via the Eye on the Reef App or Sightings Network.
