Results of Operations

Consolidated revenues for the second quarter of 2013 were $886.1 million, an increase of $33.5 million, or 3.9%, from the second quarter of 2012. Revenues in the Nuclear Operations segment increased by $65.6 million compared to the prior year period, primarily driven by the timing of activity in the manufacturing of nuclear components for US government programs. Second quarter 2013 revenues of the Power Generation segment decreased by $25.8 million versus the same period in 2012, largely as a result of revised percentage-of-completion estimates for a project on which we recognized contract losses during the quarter. Bookings for the 2013 second quarter totaled $766.2 million, an increase of 25.4% compared to $610.8 million booked in the prior year period.
