MYR reported revenues of $597.1 million for the full year of 2010, a decrease of $34.1 million, or 5.4 percent, compared with the full year of 2009. The majority of the decrease in revenues was the result of a decrease in revenues from a few large transmission projects (greater than $10.0 million in contract value) which was partially offset by an increase in revenues from several medium-sized transmission projects (between $3.0 million and $10.0 million in contract value). In addition, the C&I segment had an overall decrease in revenues from contracts valued at less than $10.0 million. The T&D segment reported revenues of $447.5 million in the full year of 2010, a decrease of 4.5 percent over 2009. The decrease in T&D segment revenues was the result of a decrease in revenues from both small and large transmission projects, partially offset by an increase in revenues generated from distribution projects and medium-sized transmission projects (between $3.0 million and $10.0 million in contract value). The C&I segment reported full-year 2010 revenues of $149.6 million, a decrease of 7.9 percent over 2009.
Consolidated gross profit decreased to $70.7 million, or 11.8 percent of revenues, for the full year of 2010, compared to $75.9 million, or 12.0 percent of revenues, for the full year of 2009. The slight decrease in gross profit as a percentage of revenues for the full year of 2010 compared to the same period of 2009 was mainly attributed to an overall reduction in contract margins on smaller T&D and C&I projects of approximately $8.5 million, which was mostly due to margin pressure from increased competition. This decrease in margins on smaller contracts in both segments was mostly offset by a net increase in margins on large projects in the T&D segment of approximately $7.4 million. The margin increases on large projects were due to increased productivity levels, cost efficiencies, added work and effective contract management.
