Tutor Perini Reports Third Quarter 2018 Results

Tutor Perini Corporation (NYSE: TPC), a leading civil, building and specialty construction company, today reported results for the three months ended September 30, 2018. Revenue for the third quarter of 2018 was $1.1 billion, down 6% compared to $1.2 billion for the third quarter of last year. The decrease was driven by the completion of a large technology office project in California. Revenue and income from construction operations for the third quarter of 2018 were both lower than expected due to continued delays on certain projects, including the California High-Speed Rail project, and because revenue generated from project execution activities for new projects starting up did not fully offset reduced revenue from projects that have completed or are nearing completion. As a result, income from construction operations for the third quarter of 2018 was $47.3 million, down 4% compared to $49.1 million for the same quarter of last year. Net income attributable to the Company for the third quarter of 2018 was $21.3 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, compared to $23.6 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, for the same quarter of 2017.

Backlog as of September 30, 2018 remained strong at $8.5 billion, up 14% compared to $7.5 billion as of September 30, 2017. New awards and adjustments to contracts in process totaled $948 million in the third quarter of 2018. Significant new awards included more than $262 million of additional funding for various building projects in California, a $121 million tunneling project in California, an $82 million aircraft maintenance facility and hangar project in Guam, and a $68 million industrial facility revitalization project in Mississippi. The Company still anticipates a contract award for the previously announced $800 million Minneapolis Southwest Light Rail Transit project, for which it was the low bidder earlier this year. Also, in the past week, the Company was selected to design and build a large new hospitality and gaming project and was the low bidder for the $253 million Culver Line Communications-Based Train Control project in New York. Finally, the Company expects to book approximately $100 million of new mechanical projects in New York City in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Cash flow from operations for the third quarter of 2018 was $27.6 million as a result of favorable collections.

Ronald Tutor, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, Contributions from the California High-Speed Rail project since mid-year have shifted more significantly than anticipated due to the owners continuing inability to deliver the right-of-ways and easements critical to our construction efforts. The impact of this shift, combined with the timing of contributions from certain other projects, is that a significant amount of our revenue and earnings has moved from 2018 to 2019 and 2020. These factors together with our growing, higher-margin backlog, sizeable pending awards and exploding pipeline of bidding opportunities should result in significantly greater earnings in both 2019 and 2020.
