Business Strength: The company is witnessing solid orders from the U.S. Federal, U.S. State & Local, U.S. Commercial and International client sectors.

Net sales from the segment increased 25% year over year in first-quarter fiscal 2024 (ended Dec 31, 2023).

Also, increased activity on clean energy and environmental services programs are supporting the Commercial / International Services Group segment. Revenues from the segment increased 49% year over year in the fiscal first quarter.

Acquisition Benefits: Tetra Tech remains focused on acquiring businesses to gain access to new customers, regions and product lines. The acquisition of LS Technologies (in February 2024) introduced additional capabilities and clients to its federal IT practice within its Government Services Group segment. Also, the RPS Group buyout (in January 2023) expanded TTEK’s water practice in the United Kingdom, and strengthened its foothold in renewable energy and environmental management.

The Amyx acquisition (in January 2023) expanded the use of advanced data analytics, cybersecurity, digital transformation and agile software development solutions for TTEK’s government and commercial customers. The company spent $854.3 million on acquisitions in fiscal 2023 (ended Sep 30, 2023).

Shareholder-Friendly Policies: Tetra Tech remains committed to rewarding its shareholders through dividend payouts. For instance, in the first three months of fiscal 2024, it paid out dividends of $13.9 million, up 13.9% year over year. In fiscal 2023, the company distributed dividends totaling $52.1 million. Also, it hiked the quarterly dividend rate by 13% in May 2023.

Bullish Guidance: Driven by strength across its business, management has issued a bullish revenue guidance for fiscal 2024 (ending Sep 30, 2024). Tetra Tech expects revenues in the range of $4.15-$4.30 billion, suggesting an increase of 11.2% at the mid-point from the year-ago levels.
