Newport News Reports 1988 Operating Earnings

Of $175 Million

Newport News Shipbuilding &

Drydock Co., Newport News, Va., reported operating earnings of $175 million during 1988, the same as operating results in 1987.

In the fourth quarter of 1988, operating income for the shipyard was $49 million, up from $37 million in the same quarter of 1987. This increase was due to the final settle- ment of several naval overhaul and repair contracts.

At present, the shipyard has a backlog of $7.9 billion, up from $4.2 billion year-end 1987, which should ensure strong operating results well into the 1990s.
