Tutor Perini Reports First Quarter 2024 Results

  • Strong operating cash flow of $98.3 million in Q1 2024, up 361% compared to $21.3 million in Q1 2023

  • Revenue of $1.05 billion in Q1 2024, up 35% compared to Q1 2023

  • Diluted earnings per share ("EPS") of $0.30 in Q1 2024 compared to diluted loss per share of $0.95 in Q1 2023

  • Backlog grew to $10.0 billion, up 26% year-over-year; anticipating continued strong backlog growth in 2024 and 2025

  • Strengthened balance sheet with debt refinancing

LOS ANGELES, April 25, 2024--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tutor Perini Corporation (the "Company") (NYSE: TPC), a leading civil, building and specialty construction company, reported results today for the first quarter of 2024. The Company generated $98.3 million of cash from operating activities in the first quarter of 2024, up 361% compared to $21.3 million for the same period of 2023. The operating cash flow for the first quarter of 2024 was the Company's second-highest result of any first quarter since the 2008 merger between Tutor-Saliba Corporation and Perini Corporation. The strong operating cash flow was driven by solid collection activities, including approximately $50 million of collections that were associated with certain recently concluded settlement negotiations or dispute resolutions. The Company continues to anticipate strong operating cash generation over the remainder of 2024 and in 2025.

Revenue was $1.05 billion, up 35% compared to $776.3 million for the first quarter of last year. The strong growth was primarily driven by increased project execution activities on two mass-transit projects in California (one in the Civil segment and one in the Building segment) and a Building segment detention facility project in New York.

Income from construction operations for the first quarter of 2024 was $48.8 million, an improvement of $130.7 million compared to loss from construction operations of $81.9 million for the same period in 2023. The substantial improvement was principally due to the absence of certain significant prior-year unfavorable adjustments, as well as contributions related to the increased project execution activities discussed above. Net income attributable to the Company for the first quarter of 2024 was $15.8 million, or $0.30 of diluted EPS, compared to net loss attributable to the Company of $49.2 million, or a $0.95 loss per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2023.

Backlog grew to $10.0 billion as of March 31, 2024, up 26% compared to $7.9 billion as of March 31, 2023. The Building and Civil segments were the primary contributors to the new award activity in the first quarter of 2024. The most significant new awards and contract adjustments in the first quarter of 2024 included a $243 million health care facility project in California; a $73 million airport hangar project in Florida; $66 million of additional funding for several other health care projects in California; $55 million for three U.S. Navy projects in Diego Garcia; and $52 million of additional funding for three mass-transit projects in California.

As previously disclosed, in February 2024 the Company paid down its Term Loan B by $91 million using available cash on hand that it had accumulated — a payment that was made more than one month earlier than required. Subsequently, in April 2024, the Company completed a successful debt refinancing, issuing $400 million of 11.875% senior notes due in 2029. The Company will use the proceeds of this transaction combined with $100 million of available cash on hand in early May 2024 to redeem all $500 million of its 6.875% senior notes due in 2025. In addition, subject to the redemption of the Company's 6.875% senior notes and the satisfaction of other customary closing conditions, the maturity of the Company's revolving credit facility will be extended to 2027.

Outlook and Guidance

The Company is focused on continuing to drive shareholder value through its disciplined approach to project bidding and execution, profitable revenue growth and continued strong cash flow. Over the near term, the Company plans to use excess cash to further reduce debt by paying down the remaining balance of the Term Loan B.

Ronald Tutor, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, remarked, "We delivered great results that were better than expected for the first quarter of 2024, including solid revenue growth and profitability in our Civil and Building segments, strong backlog growth compared to the prior year, and the second-highest operating cash flow result of any first quarter since 2008. We continue to anticipate that our backlog will grow significantly later this year and in 2025, as we pursue and expect to capture our share of various large project opportunities amid a very strong, multi-year demand environment supported by federal, state and local government funding sources, and limited competition for many of the larger projects."

Based on the Company's year-to-date results in 2024 and the current outlook for the remainder of the year, the Company is affirming its 2024 EPS guidance and still expects EPS to be in the range of $0.85 to $1.10.

________________________________

(a)

During the three months ended March 31, 2024, the Company’s income (loss) from construction operations was impacted by an unfavorable adjustment of $12.0 million ($8.8 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, after tax) due to an arbitration ruling that only provided a partial award to the Company pertaining to a completed Specialty Contractors segment electrical project in New York, as well as by a favorable adjustment of $10.2 million ($7.5 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, after tax) on a Civil segment mass-transit project in California related to a dispute resolution and associated expected cost savings.

(b)

Consists primarily of corporate general and administrative expenses.

(c)

Depreciation and amortization is included in income (loss) from construction operations.

(d)

During the three months ended March 31, 2023, the Company’s income (loss) from construction operations was unfavorably impacted by an adverse legal ruling on a completed mixed-use project in New York, which resulted in a non-cash, pre-tax charge of $83.6 million ($60.1 million, or $1.17 per diluted share, after-tax), of which $72.2 million impacted the Building segment and $11.4 million impacted the Specialty Contractors segment, as well as an unfavorable adjustment of $28.0 million ($22.2 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, after tax) for a Civil segment mass-transit project in California, resulting from the successful negotiation of significant lower margin (and lower risk) change orders which increased the project’s overall estimated profit but reduced the project’s percentage of completion and overall margin percentage as of March 31, 2023.
