Tetra Tech: Record Third Quarter Results

Tetra Tech, Inc. today announced results for the third quarter ended June 29, 2008. The Company exceeded both its revenue and earnings guidance for the quarter.

Third Quarter Results

Revenue in the quarter was $564.3 million, up 39.7% from $404.0 million, and revenue, net of subcontractor costs, was $332.3 million, up 29.6% from $256.3 million for the same quarter last year. Income from operations for the quarter was $28.1 million, up 27.0% from $22.1 million for the same quarter last year. Net income for the quarter was $16.1 million, up 29.8% from $12.4 million for the same quarter last year. Diluted earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter was $0.27, up 28.6% from $0.21 for the same quarter last year. Backlog at the end of the quarter was a record $1.57 billion, up 29.3% from $1.22 billion at the end of the same quarter last year. Cash generated from operations improved in the third quarter to $16.8 million, up 114.4% from $7.8 million for the same quarter last year.

Compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2007, Tetra Tech’s federal government business grew 34.0%, driven by increased workload with the U.S. Agency for International Development and the U.S. Department of Defense; state and local business grew 12.6%, due largely to regulatory-driven water programs; and commercial business grew 36.0%, driven largely by wind energy projects.

Nine Month Results

Revenue for the first nine months was $1.496 billion, up 33.7% from $1.119 billion, and revenue, net of subcontractor costs, was $896.8 million, an increase of 21.6% from $737.5 million for the same period last year. Income from operations for the first nine months was $75.6 million, up 22.3% from $61.8 million for the same period last year. Net income for the first nine months was $42.7 million, up 32.4% from $32.3 million for the same period last year. Diluted EPS for the first nine months was $0.72, up 30.9% from $0.55 for the same period last year.
