Tutor Perini Announces 2012 Results

Tutor Perini Corporation (NYSE: TPC) (the “Company”), a leading civil and building construction company, today reported results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.

Fourth-Quarter Results

Revenues from construction operations were $1.11 billion for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $1.11 billion for the fourth quarter of 2011. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $41.6 million compared to $24.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. Diluted earnings per share were $0.86 for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared with $0.50 for the fourth quarter of 2011. Excluding a $12.7 million tax benefit recognized in the fourth quarter of 2012 related to the goodwill and intangible asset impairment charge which the Company recognized in the second quarter of 2012 and a $5.0 million pre-tax ($3.0 million after-tax) charge related to an adverse jury verdict received in December 2012 by one of the Company’s recently acquired companies, net income and diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $31.9 million and $0.66, respectively. Net income and diluted earnings per share excluding the after-tax impairment charge and certain other discrete items 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.

In the fourth quarter, the Company performed approximately $60 million of emergency repair services in response to Hurricane Sandy. Tutor Perini performed the largest share of work among the general contractors hired for New York City’s Rapid Repairs Program. The goal of the program was to restore heat, power, and hot water to thousands of residential properties damaged by the hurricane, as well as perform repairs to protect residents from further damage and allow them to remain in or return to their homes. The Company’s work on the program is expected to conclude this week. In addition, Tutor Perini’s specialty electrical and mechanical services subsidiaries, Five Star Electric and WDF, restored power, plumbing, and heating to the Rockaway Water Control Plant, which was submerged after the storm, re-energized 35 New York City Department of Environmental Protection pumping stations, and provided emergency repair services to the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) at various NYCHA-managed properties by restoring electricity and/or heat to over 100 buildings.

Notwithstanding the volume of Sandy-related work, revenues from construction operations in the fourth quarter were flat compared to the same quarter last year primarily due to the substantial completion of several large public works and hospitality and gaming projects in 2011. Excluding the $12.7 million tax benefit on the impairment charge and the $3.0 million after-tax litigation charge, the increase in net income in the fourth quarter was primarily due to reduced general and administrative expenses compared to the fourth quarter last year.

Full-Year Results

Revenues from construction operations were $4.11 billion for 2012 compared to $3.72 billion for 2011, an increase of 11%. The Company recorded a net loss of $265.4 million, or $5.59 diluted loss per share for 2012 compared to net income of $86.1 million, or $1.80 diluted earnings per share for 2011. Adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share for 2012 were $70.3 million and $1.46, respectively.

Revenue from construction operations increased for 2012 primarily due to full-year contributions from the Company’s 2011 acquisitions combined with increased activity on certain healthcare facility and tunnel projects on the west coast and several highway projects on the east coast. These increases were partially offset by the substantial completions of several large public works and hospitality and gaming projects in 2011. Excluding the discrete items discussed above, the decrease in net income for 2012 was due to several factors, including the decline in volume and favorable close outs associated with the substantial project completions discussed above and an unfavorable change in the new work margin mix. This decrease was partially offset by full-year contributions from 2011 acquisitions.

At December 31, 2012, working capital was $747.6 million, an increase of $190.8 million from $556.8 million at December 31, 2011. 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 December 31, 2012 was $5.6 billion, consistent with the backlog reported at September 30, 2012 and a decrease of $0.5 billion from $6.1 billion reported at December 31, 2011. Revenues earned during the fourth quarter offset the new awards and adjustments to contracts in process, which together added approximately $1.1 billion. Significant additions to backlog during the fourth quarter of 2012 included a $235 million bridge rehabilitation project in New York, a $167 million signal modernization project in New York, a $130 million irrigation and watershed management program in Afghanistan, and a $116 million joint venture bridge and highway project in Minnesota.

Ronald Tutor, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, remarked, “In 2012, we experienced a very disappointing year for our Building business. However, our Civil, Specialty Contractors, and Management Services groups performed well, and we have moved beyond the building market trough and are working to rebuild our backlog with recent new projects. Our strategy to diversify our business and enhance our self-perform capabilities continues to produce good results.” Tutor continued, “We are proud of our role in helping New York recover from Hurricane Sandy and are well positioned to continue assisting the East Coast region to rebuild with the aid of more than $50 billion dollars of recently allocated disaster relief funds. In addition to new Sandy-related opportunities, we also remain very optimistic about our opportunities in our Civil business.”

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) the $326.4 million after-tax impairment charge, (ii) $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, (iii) the $3.0 million after-tax litigation charge recorded in the fourth quarter of 2012, and (iv) the $2.7 million realized loss on the sale of auction rate securities in the first quarter of 2012.
