Earnings Highlights and Summary

For the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2017, Tutor Perini's revenues were $1.19 billion compared to $1.25 billion in Q4 2016. The Company's revenue numbers lagged analysts' estimates of $1.37 billion.

For the full fiscal year 2017, Tutor Perini's revenues were $4.76 billion compared to $4.97 billion in FY16.

For Q4 2017, Tutor Perini's income from construction operations was $59.3 million, up 14% compared to $52.1 million in Q4 2016, driven by contributions from certain higher-margin Civil projects.

Tutor Perini's net income attributable to common shareholders increased substantially to $80.9 million, or $1.60 per diluted share, in Q4 2017 compared to $30.3 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, in Q4 2016. The Company's reported quarter results included a tax benefit of $53.3 million, or $1.05 per diluted share, which primarily resulted from the remeasurement of the Company's net deferred tax liabilities due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act 2017 (TCJA), enacted in December 2017. Tutor Perini's earnings numbers beat Wall Street's estimates of $0.50 per share, even after excluding the benefit of the TCJA.

For FY17, Tutor Perini's net income attributable to common shareholders was $148.4 million, or $2.92 per diluted share, compared to $95.8 million, or $1.92 per diluted share, in FY16. The Company's earnings results for FY17 included a tax benefit of $53.3 million, or $1.05 per diluted share, from the TCJA. Additionally, the Company's net income for FY17 was also favorably impacted by a gain of $37 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, on a legal settlement that was recorded in other income earlier in FY17.

Segment Results

During Q4 2017, Tutor Perini's Civil segment recorded revenues of $492.3 million, up 9% compared to $452.3 million in Q4 2016.

Tutor Perini's Building segment generated revenues of $462.5 million, down 16% compared to $551.8 million in Q4 2016, predominantly due to a reduced activity on various building projects, particularly in California and Florida, that are completed or nearing completion. The Company's Specialty Contractors segment's revenues were $306.0 million, up 1% compared to $302.0 million in Q4 2016.

Cash Matters

During FY17, Tutor Perini generated operating cash of $163.6 million, which established a new record for annual operating cash generation. The Company's operating cash exceeded net income in FY17 for a second consecutive year. Tutor Perini is anticipating cash generation to continue to be strong in FY18, and that cash flow from operations will again exceed net income for FY18.

Backlog

Tutor Perini's backlog was $7.3 billion as of December 31, 2017, up 17% compared to $6.2 billion as of December 31, 2016.

Tutor Perini's new awards and adjustments to contracts in progress were $1.0 billion and $5.8 billion during Q4 2017 and FY17, respectively, compared to $0.8 billion and $3.7 billion for the year ago comparable periods. For FY17, the largest of new awards was the $1.4 billion Purple Line Section 2 extension of the Los Angeles subway. These new awards resulted in a solid book-to-burn ratio of 1.22 for the year.

Outlook

For FY18, the Company is establishing its earnings per diluted share forecasts to be in the range of $1.90 to $2.30. The Company's results are anticipated to be weighted towards H2 FY18, due to the seasonality of the business.
