For the fourth quarter of 2012, net income was $9.8 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, compared to $5.9 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, for the same period of 2011. Fourth-quarter 2012 EBITDA was $22.3 million, or 9.0 percent of revenues, compared to $14.8 million, or 6.3 percent of revenues, in the fourth quarter of 2011. The increase in EBITDA as a percentage of revenues was mainly due to the higher gross margin, which was offset in part by higher selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenues, as discussed above.

Full-Year Results

MYR reported revenues of $999.0 million for the full year of 2012, an increase of $218.6 million, or 28.0 percent, compared with the full year of 2011. The T&D segment reported revenues of $828.7 million in the full year of 2012, an increase of 33.2 percent over the 2011 period. The growth in revenues was primarily the result of an increase in revenues from transmission projects of all sizes, which were partially offset by a decrease in distribution revenues. The C&I segment reported full-year 2012 revenues of $170.2 million, an increase of 7.5 percent from 2011, due to an increase in revenue on small and medium-sized projects, partially offset by an overall decrease in revenues from a few large projects.

Consolidated gross profit increased 38.7 percent to $118.7 million for the full year of 2012 from $85.6 million for the full year of 2011. Gross margin grew to 11.9 percent for the full year of 2012 from 11.0 percent for the full year of 2011. The increase in gross margin was mainly attributable to an overall increase in contract margins on small and medium-sized projects in both segments and to improved utilization of fleet assets.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $63.6 million for the full year of 2012 from $56.8 million for the full year of 2011. The increase was primarily due to an increase in employee compensation related to the increased number of support personnel, normal salary increases, increased profit sharing and bonus expense and an increase in employee-related benefit costs. As a percentage of revenues, these expenses decreased to 6.4 percent for the full year of 2012 from 7.3 percent for the full year of 2011.
