Primoris Services Corporation Announces 2012 Fourth Quarter And Full Year Financial Results

Stocks in this article: PRIM

Operating income for the 2012 fourth quarter was $28.1 million, or 5.8% of total revenues, compared to $25.3 million, or 6.8% of total revenues, for the same period last year.

Net other expense in the 2012 fourth quarter was $1.2 million, which was a $3.3 million decline from the 2011 fourth quarter. The decline was primarily due to expenses and charges associated with the WesPac investment in 2011.

The provision for income taxes for the 2012 fourth quarter was $9.0 million, for an effective tax rate of 33.3%, compared to $8.3 million, for an effective tax rate of 40.1%, in the 2011 fourth quarter. The decrease in the effective tax rate was primarily caused by the tax treatment of the Rockford settlement.

Net income attributable to Primoris for the 2012 fourth quarter was $17.0 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, compared to net income of $12.5 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, in the same period in 2011.

Fully diluted shares outstanding for the 2012 fourth quarter increased by 0.2% to 51.4 million from 51.3 million in 2011’s fourth quarter. The increase in shares was due to shares issued as part of the Sprint acquisition, for director compensation and for the company’s long-term incentive program, offset by shares repurchased under a share repurchase plan. During the 2012 fourth quarter, the Company did not purchase any shares of stock under its 2012 share repurchase program, which expired on December 31, 2012.
