SYLMAR, Calif., Nov 03, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --

Tutor Perini Corporation (NYSE: TPC)(the "Company"), a leading civil and building construction company, today reported results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011.

Third Quarter and Nine Month Results

Revenues from construction operations were $1.2 billion for the third quarter of 2011, as compared to revenues of $731.8 million for the third quarter of 2010. Net income was $35.5 million for the third quarter of 2011, as compared to net income of $30.9 million for the third quarter of 2010. Diluted earnings per common share were $0.74 for the third quarter of 2011, as compared to diluted earnings per common share of $0.65 for the third quarter of 2010.

Revenues from construction operations were $2.6 billion for the first nine months of 2011, as compared to revenues of $2.5 billion for the first nine months of 2010. Net income was $62.1 million for the first nine months of 2011, as compared to net income of $84.6 million for the first nine months of 2010. Diluted earnings per common share were $1.30 for the first nine months of 2011, as compared to diluted earnings per common share of $1.73 for the first nine months of 2010.

The increase in operating results from the third quarter of 2010 primarily reflects the contributions from acquisitions the Company has completed over the past 12 months, offset by the substantial completion of successful large public works projects in the Building and Civil segments.

Operating results decreased from the first nine months of 2010 due primarily to the substantial completion of large public works projects in the Building and Civil segments offset by contributions from the acquisitions the Company has recently closed.

At September 30, 2011, working capital was $682.0 million, an increase of $89.1 million from $592.9 million at December 31, 2010. The Company had $165.0 million available to borrow under the revolving credit facility. The Company believes its financial position and credit arrangements are sufficient to support the Company's current backlog and anticipated new work.

Backlog at $6.4 billion

The backlog of uncompleted construction work at September 30, 2011 was $6.4 billion, an increase of $1.4 billion from backlog reported at June 30, 2011 and an increase of $2.1 billion from $4.3 billion reported at December 31, 2010. The $1.4 billion net increase is attributable to backlog acquired through acquisitions of $1.6 billion, and new awards and adjustments to contracts in process, which added $1.0 billion, offset by revenue earned during the quarter. Additions to new work during the third quarter of 2011 include a $143 million highway interchange reconstruction project in Maryland, a $93 million office building in northern California, a $70 million educational facility in Philadelphia, and a $60 million overhead coverage protection facility in Iraq.


The Company is refining its guidance for 2011 revenues to an estimated range of $3.6 to $3.8 billion and diluted earnings per common share to an estimated range of $2.00 to $2.10 per share.

Ronald Tutor, Chairman and CEO, said: "Our overall results for the quarter reflect the benefits from recent acquisitions. As we progress with the integration of our recent acquisitions, we are actively capitalizing on new market opportunities to enhance our margins. We believe the combined company is well positioned for growth as the U.S. economy begins to recover."
