SYLMAR, Calif., May 05, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --

Tutor Perini Corporation (NYSE: TPC) (the "Company"), a leading civil and building construction company, today reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011.


First Quarter Results

Revenues from construction operations were $615.3 million for the first quarter of 2011, as compared to $865.1 million for the first quarter of 2010. Net income was $6.9 million for the first quarter of 2011, as compared to $20.9 million for the first quarter of 2010. Diluted earnings per common share were $0.14 for the first quarter of 2011, as compared to $0.42 for the first quarter of 2010.

The decrease in the operating results from the first quarter of 2010 primarily reflects the substantial completion of large hospitality and gaming work in the Building segment, an overall lag in the timing of the start-up of new work in backlog, and increased interest expense associated with the Company's senior unsecured notes, issued in October 2010.

At March 31, 2011, working capital was $576.4 million, a decrease of $16.5 million from $592.9 million at December 31, 2010. On May 4, 2011, the Company amended its existing credit agreement, increasing the available borrowing capacity by $55 million to $359.5 million and extending the maturity date to May 2016 for the $260 million revolving line of credit and November 2012 for the $99.6 million supplemental line of credit. The Company believes its financial position and credit arrangements are sufficient to support the Company's current backlog, anticipated new work and acquisitions for which the Company has signed letters of intent.

Backlog at $4.2 billion

The backlog of uncompleted construction work at March 31, 2011 was $4.2 billion, compared to $4.3 billion backlog reported at December 31, 2010. The March 31, 2011 backlog includes new contract awards and adjustments to contracts in process that were added during the first quarter of 2011 totaling approximately $562.3 million, which includes the addition of approximately $190 million of backlog assumed through the acquisition of Fisk Electric Company, and a $108.1 million task order contract under the U.S. Department of State for containerized housing in southern Iraq.


Guidance for the full year 2011 remains unchanged. As previously provided, revenues are estimated to be in the range of $4.2 to $4.7 billion and diluted earnings per share are estimated to be in the range of $2.20 to $2.40 per share.

Ronald Tutor, Chairman and CEO, said: "We continue to benefit from the performance of our Civil operations and have capitalized on opportunities to acquire good companies who support our vertical and geographic expansion strategy. We expect to achieve accretive earnings with all of the companies we acquire within a year of the acquisition."
