SYLMAR, Calif.--()--Tutor Perini Corporation (NYSE: TPC) (the “Company”), a leading civil and building construction company, today reported results for the second quarter of 2014.

Second-Quarter and Six-Month Results

Revenues were $1,084.5 million and $2,039.7 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively, compared to $1,053.1 million and $2,046.0 million for the same periods last year. Income from construction operations was $65.4 million and $106.9 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively, compared to $39.5 million and $75.6 million for the same periods last year. Net income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 was $28.5 million and $44.5 million, respectively, compared to net income of $15.5 million and $30.3 million for the same periods last year. Basic and diluted earnings per share were $0.59 and $0.58 for the three months ended June 30, 2014, respectively, compared to basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.32 and $0.32 for the same periods last year. Basic and diluted earnings per share were $0.92 and $0.91 for the six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively, compared to basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.64 and $0.62 for the same periods last year.

During the three months ended June 30, 2014, revenue increased $31.4 million, or 3.0%, compared to the same period last year due primarily to increased activity on civil and building projects at Hudson Yards in New York and on certain electrical and mechanical projects on the East Coast. During the six months ended June 30, 2014, revenue decreased $6.3 million, or 0.3%, compared to the same period last year due primarily to decreased activity on hospitality and gaming projects in California, Arizona, Nevada, Louisiana, and Pennsylvania and on healthcare projects in California. This decrease was partially offset by increased activity on civil and building projects at Hudson Yards, bridge projects in the Midwest and New York, various educational projects nationwide, and courthouse projects in California and Florida. The increase in net income in the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 was due primarily to an overall increase in volume in our Civil segment and net favorable adjustments to anticipated recoveries associated with certain legal rulings issued in the second quarter of 2014, which were partially offset by Hurricane Sandy-related projects performed in 2013.

The Company used $20.3 million of cash from operating activities in the second quarter compared to cash generation of $45.9 million in the same period last year. The change in cash usage between the second quarters of 2014 and 2013 was primarily driven by the timing of payments in our Specialty Contractors and Building segments, partially offset by strong cash generation in our Civil segment. At June 30, 2014, working capital was $1,003.9 million, an increase of $216.5 million from $787.4 million at December 31, 2013. The Company believes its financial position and available borrowing under existing credit arrangements are sufficient to support the Company’s current backlog and anticipated new work.

Backlog Increased to $7.8 Billion

The backlog of uncompleted construction work at June 30, 2014 was $7.8 billion, an increase of $1.2 billion, or 17.9%, from $6.6 billion reported at June 30, 2013. The strong increase in backlog since last year has been driven by a large volume of new awards primarily in the Civil segment. In the second quarter, approximately $1.2 billion of new awards and adjustments to existing contracts were added to backlog, including several large awards recorded in the Building segment. New awards included a $255 million multi-unit residential tower project in Florida, a $120 million retail development project in California, a $113 million hospitality and gaming development project in Mississippi, and a $67 million excavation and tunnel project in British Columbia.

Tutor Perini Awarded $267 Million JFK Runway Project in the Third Quarter

On July 2, 2014, the Company was awarded a contract valued at approximately $267 million by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey for the John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport Runway 4L-22R Runway Safety Area Compliance/Runway Reconstruction project. The contract value will be included in the Company’s reported third-quarter backlog.

Outlook and Guidance

Ronald Tutor, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “I am pleased with the Company’s second-quarter results, which were highlighted by continued backlog growth as well as increased operating profit margins in our Civil and Building segments. The outlook for additional new awards remains favorable across our segments and we are increasingly confident in the likelihood of collecting substantial cash over the next few quarters due to the expected resolutions or adjudications of certain legacy project issues.”

Based on the current outlook, the Company is updating its fiscal 2014 guidance, with revenue now expected in the range of $4.5 billion to $4.7 billion and diluted EPS remaining in the range of $2.20 to $2.40.
