    LOMBARD, Ill., April 1, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pernix Group, Inc. (OTCQB:PRXG) announced its financial results today for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013.

    Pernix Group reported the second highest revenue in its history, with consolidated revenue from continuing operations of $73.8 million in 2013, as compared to $120.0 million in 2012.

The decrease in construction-related revenues was partially offset by a $0.7 million increase in power generating revenue, which reflects higher usage of diesel power at the Company's power plants in Fiji, as opposed to hydro-electric power, due to climatic conditions and maintenance of hydro facilities in Fiji.
