 AVONDALE SUBSIDIARY AWARDED OPERATIONS & MAINTENANCE CONTRACT
 NEW ORLEANS, Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Avondale Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: AVDL) today announced that its subsidiary, Crawford Technical Services, Inc. (CTS), has been awarded a contract for operation and maintenance of public transit services for the Houston metro area.
 The contract has a total value of approximately $30 million, covering an initial three-year period with two additional one-year options.
 Albert L. Bossier Jr., chairman and chief executive officer of Avondale, said that the employees performing the skilled services will be mostly Houston residents. On-site management will report to the subsidiary's corporate staff which is based in Metairie, La. Bossier commented: "This venture, along with the recently awarded Houston METROLift contract for paratransit services valued at $10.1 million, firmly establishes us in the transit industry. Together with the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) contract, this subsidiary has successfully captured nearly $104 million of new business for Avondale."
 Joe Jarvis, president of Crawford Technical Services, said: "The contract administered by the Houston Metropolitan Transit Authority on behalf of the city of Houston is particularly critical in meeting the transportation needs of the citizens who utilize the Park and Ride Service. The contract calls for providing commuter bus service to a very large Houston community ridership and is critical in meeting today's demand for less traffic congestion of high population cities."
 Avondale Industries, Inc., headquartered in metro New Orleans, is one of the nation's leading marine fabricators. In addition to its shipbuilding operations, the company specializes in boat construction and is a major repair contractor for commercial and Navy ships. It is also involved in the modular construction of plants and components for a variety of land-based industries.
