Let’s delve into the factors that make investment in the company a smart choice at the moment.

Business Strength: Tetra Tech has been benefiting from projects related to advanced analytics, climate change, renewable energy and environmental programs. In the quarters ahead, digital water transformation, disaster response planning, infrastructure stimulus, as well as commercial and government projects across the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia are likely to drive its performance. For fiscal 2022 (ending September 2022), the company anticipates generating net revenues of $2.60-$2.80 billion, higher than $2.55 billion recorded in fiscal 2021 (ended September 2021). Exiting fiscal 2021, its backlog remained strong at $3,480.3 million.

Acquisition Benefits: The company focuses on acquisitions for strengthening and expanding its businesses. Its acquisition of Enterprise Automation (October 2021) is likely to strengthen its digital technology solutions for water sector clients.

The acquisition of Kaizen Company (May 2021) has been boosting growth opportunities for its Government Services Group. The IBRA-RMAC Automation Systems buyout (April 2021) has strengthened its digital water system business.

Shareholder-Friendly Policies: Tetra Tech remains committed to rewarding its shareholders through dividend payouts and share buybacks. In fiscal 2021, the company paid out dividends worth $40 million and bought back shares worth $60 million. In April 2021, it also hiked its quarterly dividend rate by 18%.
