Tutor Perini Announces First Quarter Results

  • Revenue of $992.9 million, up 9% compared to $912.5 million in Q1 2012
  • Diluted EPS of $0.31, up 288% compared to adjusted diluted EPS of $0.08 in Q1 2012

SYLMAR, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Tutor Perini Corporation (NYS: TPC) (the "Company"), a leading civil and building construction company, today reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013.

First-Quarter Results

Revenues were $992.9 million for the first quarter of 2013 compared to $912.5 million for the first quarter of 2012. Income from construction operations was $36.1 million for the first quarter of 2013 compared to $17.0 million for the first quarter of 2012. Net income for the first quarter of 2013 was $14.8 million compared to a net loss of $1.2 million for the first quarter of 2012. Diluted earnings per share were $0.31 for the first quarter of 2013 compared with a diluted loss per share of $0.03 for the first quarter of 2012. Excluding $3.6 million in discrete tax adjustments and a $2.7 million pre-tax loss on the sale of certain auction rate securities, both of which were recognized in the first quarter of 2012, net income and diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2012 were $4.1 million and $0.08, respectively. Net income and diluted earnings per share excluding these adjustments are non-GAAP financial measures, which are discussed below and are reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP measures in the financial tables attached hereto.

Revenues in the first quarter were up 8.8% compared to the same quarter last year due primarily to activity in new hospitality and gaming projects in California, Arizona, and Nevada; work performed in New York in connection with damage caused by Hurricane Sandy; and increased activity in a tunnel project in Washington. The increase in net income in the first quarter was due primarily to the increased revenue described above and a reduction in general and administrative expenses.

At March 31, 2013, working capital was $827.9 million, an increase of $80.3 million from $747.6 million at December 31, 2012. The Company believes its financial position and available borrowing under existing credit arrangements are sufficient to support the Company's current backlog and anticipated new work.

The backlog of uncompleted construction work at March 31, 2013 was $5.5 billion, a decrease of $0.1 billion from $5.6 billion reported at December 31, 2012 and a decrease of $0.4 billion from $5.9 billion reported at March 31, 2012. Revenues earned during the first quarter offset the new awards and adjustments to contracts in process, which together added approximately $0.9 billion. Significant additions to backlog during the first quarter of 2013 included two educational building projects in California valued at $234 million, the construction contract for the Hudson Yards South Tower in New York, a $58 million transit signal modernization project in New York, and a $40 million federal facility in Mississippi.

Recent Successful Bids Result in a Significant New Volume of Pending Awards

In April 2013, the Company's joint venture with Zachry Construction Corporation and Parsons Corporation was identified as the "apparent best value" bidder for the initial segment of the California High-Speed Rail project, with a bid valued at approximately $985 million, and the Company was also identified as the low bidder for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency's Third Street Light Rail Program Phase 2 - Central Subway project, with a bid valued at approximately $840 million. These two major pending civil awards are expected to result in the addition of over $1.3 billion of backlog upon execution of the respective contracts. The Company's total volume of pending awards now stands at $6.5 billion, which includes these two California rail projects, up to $3.7 billion in additional large phases of the Hudson Yards project, and various educational, hospitality and gaming, government, and bridge projects. These awards are expected to enter the Company's backlog over the next several quarters.


Ronald Tutor, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "I am pleased with the Company's strong first-quarter results, which were highlighted by double-digit organic revenue growth in our Building and Specialty Contractors segments and solid profitability across all our segments. In addition, our recent successful civil bids on two major California rail projects provide us with increased confidence and growth visibility over the next several years." Tutor continued, "The Company is maintaining its fiscal 2013 guidance for revenue in the range of $4.5 billion to $5.0 billion and diluted EPS in the range of $1.65 to $1.90, and we plan to re-evaluate this guidance next quarter based upon the expected impact of new contracts executed between now and then."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented based on accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), we sometimes use non-GAAP measures of income from operations, net income, earnings per share and other measures that we believe are appropriate to enhance an overall understanding of our historical financial performance and future prospects. The Company is providing these measures to provide additional information to facilitate the comparison of past and present operations, and they are among the indicators management uses as a basis for evaluating its financial performance as well as for forecasting future periods. For these reasons, management believes these non-GAAP measures can be useful operating performance measures to be considered by investors, potential investors and others. These measures are not intended to replace the presentation of our financial results in accordance with GAAP, and they should be considered in addition to, and not in lieu of, our GAAP results. The non-GAAP financial measures that we provide may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. A table reconciling reported income/loss from construction operations, net income/loss, and diluted earnings/loss per share under GAAP to adjusted income from operations, net income and diluted earnings per share in 2012 is attached. Included in the adjustments to GAAP are the impacts of: (i) $3.6 million of discrete tax expense items related to an increase in unrecognized tax benefits and an adjustment, both associated with certain stock-based compensation items identified during the first quarter of 2012, and (ii) the $2.7 million realized loss on the sale of auction rate securities in the first quarter of 2012.
