SYLMAR, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 6, 2012-- Tutor Perini Corporation (NYSE: TPC) (the “Company”), a leading civil and building construction company, today reported results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012.

Second Quarter and Six Month Results

The Company’s second quarter and six month results were impacted by a significant non-cash charge recorded during the period. This charge was the result of several factors that required a write-down of the Company’s goodwill and intangible assets to their fair values. Those factors included a sustained decrease in the Company’s stock price, deterioration in broader market conditions including recent stock market volatility, and a delay in the timing of projected cash flows for three of the Company’s operating segments, caused by delays in the timing of the award and start of new work. This impairment charge does not impact the Company’s overall business operations, cash balances or operating cash flows.

Revenues from construction operations were $985.3 million for the second quarter of 2012, compared to $819.9 million for the second quarter of 2011, an increase of 20%. Including the after-tax impairment charge of $355.9 million, the Company recorded a net loss of $348.4 million, or $7.35 diluted loss per share, for the second quarter of 2012, compared to net income of $19.7 million, or $0.41 diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of 2011. Excluding the impairment charge, second quarter 2012 net income and diluted earnings per share were $7.5 million and $0.16, respectively. Net income and diluted earnings per share excluding the impairment charge and certain other discrete charges are non-GAAP measures defined elsewhere in this press release and are reconciled to GAAP measures in the financial tables attached hereto.

Revenues from construction operations were $1.9 billion for the first six months of 2012, compared to $1.4 billion for the first six months of 2011, an increase of 32%. Including the after-tax impairment charge of $355.9 million, discrete tax expense adjustments of $3.6 million related to stock-based compensation, and an after-tax loss on the sale of certain auction rate securities of $1.6 million, the Company recorded a net loss of $349.6 million, or $7.38 diluted loss per share, for the first six months of 2012, compared to net income of $26.6 million, or $0.56 diluted earnings per share for the first six months of 2011. Excluding the impairment charge and other discrete items recognized during the first quarter of 2012, net income and diluted earnings per share for the first six months of 2012 were $11.6 million and $0.24, respectively.

Revenues from construction operations increased during the second quarter and first six months of 2012 primarily due to the contributions from prior year acquisitions, partially offset by the substantial completion of several successful large Building and Civil public works and hospitality and gaming projects in 2011. The decrease in net income was due to several factors including the decline in volume for the substantial completion of several successful large Building and Civil public works projects in 2011, the current under absorption of the Company’s general and administrative expenses, particularly in the Building segment as it is starting up several high quality pending award and prospect projects led by the recently announced Hudson Yards project, and an unfavorable change in the new work margin mix. This decrease was partially offset by contributions from prior year acquisitions.

At June 30, 2012, working capital was $591.6 million, an increase of $34.8 million from $556.8 million at December 31, 2011. On August 2, 2012, the Company amended its existing credit agreement to modify the financial covenants under agreement to allow for more favorable ratios for the Company. In conjunction with the amendment, the Company obtained a waiver of compliance with the covenants of the credit agreement for the period ended June 30, 2012 as the Company would otherwise have been out of compliance with certain ratios due to the impairment charge, current debt levels, and lower than expected income from operations. The Company believes its financial position and credit arrangements are sufficient to support the Company’s current backlog and anticipated new work.

Backlog at $5.9 billion

The backlog of uncompleted construction work at June 30, 2012 was $5.9 billion, consistent with backlog reported at March 31, 2012 and a decrease of $0.2 billion from $6.1 billion reported at December 31, 2011. Revenues earned during the second quarter offset the new awards and adjustments to contracts in process which added $0.9 billion. Additions to new work during the second quarter of 2012 include a $178 million courthouse in Florida, a $99 million electrical subcontract for a civil infrastructure project on the west coast, a $95 million hospitality project in Nevada, and a $94 million task order contract for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the construction of three electrical substations and transmission lines in Afghanistan.

Outlook

Ongoing economic and political conditions have negatively affected the timing of award and start of new work opportunities. In light of these delays, the Company is updating its guidance: for 2012 revenues, guidance is reduced from a range of $4.5 to $5.0 billion to an estimated range of $4.0 to $4.5 billion; for diluted earnings per share, excluding the impairment charge and other discrete items noted above, from a range of $2.10 to $2.30 per share to an estimated range of $1.50 to $1.70 per share.

Ronald Tutor, Chairman and CEO, said: “Notwithstanding these negative conditions, we have been experiencing an unprecedented and highly encouraging inflow of large new work opportunities, particularly in our Civil Group, which we expect will provide stable profit and cash flow streams for the next several years. Our backlog remains strong at $5.9 billion, and we are pleased with the strength of ongoing contributions from recent acquisitions, particularly in our Specialty Contractors segment. We look forward to capturing our share of the large-scale work bidding during the second half of 2012.”

Non-GAAP Measurements

To supplement our unaudited 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 may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. A table reconciling reported loss from construction operations, net loss, and diluted loss per share under GAAP to income from operations, net income and diluted earnings per share in 2012, excluding discrete items, is attached. Included in discrete items are the impacts of: (i) the $355.9 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, and (iii) a $1.6 million after-tax realized loss on the sale of auction rate securities in the first quarter of 2012.
