  • Net income of $103.5 million, compared to $137.1 million in 2009
  • Diluted EPS of $2.13, compared to $2.79 in 2009
  • Backlog of $4.3 billion, same as a year ago

SYLMAR, Calif., Feb 24, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Tutor Perini Corporation (NYSE: TPC), a leading civil and building construction company, today reported results for the fourth quarter, and year ended, December 31, 2010.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results

Revenues from construction operations were $688 million for the fourth quarter of 2010, as compared to $1.1 billion for the fourth quarter of 2009. Net income was $18.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2010, as compared to $32.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2009. Diluted earnings per common share were $0.40 for the fourth quarter of 2010, as compared to $0.66 for the fourth quarter of 2009.

Revenues from construction operations were $3.2 billion for the year ended December 31, 2010, as compared to $5.2 billion for the year ended December 31, 2009. Net income was $103.5 million for 2010, as compared to $137.1 million for 2009. Diluted earnings per common share were $2.13 for 2010, as compared to $2.79 for 2009.

The decrease in revenues primarily reflects the completion of large hospitality and gaming work during 2009, partially offset by an increase in the volume of civil infrastructure work. Operating profit margins increased due to higher margin public works building and civil contracts under construction.

At December 31, 2010, working capital was $592.9 million, an increase of $289.8 million from $303.1 million at December 31, 2009. In October 2010, the Company completed a private placement offering of $300 million of 7.625% senior unsecured notes due November 1, 2018. The notes were priced at 99.258% of par, resulting in a yield to maturity of 7.75%. As of December 31, 2010, the Company had $304.5 million available to borrow under its credit facilities. The Company believes its financial position and credit arrangements are sufficient to support the Company's current backlog, anticipated new work and acquisition strategy.

Backlog at $4.3 billion

The backlog of uncompleted construction work at December 31, 2010 was $4.3 billion, consistent with the $4.3 billion backlog reported at December 31, 2009. The December 31, 2010 backlog includes new contract awards and adjustments to contracts in process added during the fourth quarter of 2010 of approximately $925 million, which includes a $490 million joint venture share of a $1.1 billion contract for construction of the Seattle SR99 Bored Tunnel Project in Seattle, Washington, a $107 million joint venture share for I-95 roadway improvements in New Haven, Connecticut, a $54 million joint venture share for an airport terminal in Florida, a $36 million contract for the USC McKay Sports Complex in Los Angeles, a $34 million contract for an airport runway reconstruction in Kosrae, Micronesia, and a $23 million task order award for a U.S. Coast Guard hangar in Massachusetts.


The Company is initiating guidance for the full year 2011 with revenues estimated to be in the range of $4.2 to $4.7 billion and diluted earnings per share estimated to be in the range of $2.20 to $2.40 per share.

Ronald Tutor, Chairman and CEO, said: "Our civil operation has delivered outstanding results for us and we expect it to continue to grow in the future. We are patiently awaiting the release of projects to bid and major awards in Guam. Over the course of the coming year, we anticipate the nonresidential building markets will steadily improve. Finally, with the added capital resulting from our senior notes offering, we are pursuing growth opportunities through acquisitions available in the current market, including our recent acquisition of Fisk Electric which closed at the beginning of this year."
