Income Tax Expense

The effective tax rates were 34.7% and 33.2% for the three months and fiscal year ended June 30, 2013. The fiscal 2013 tax rate was positively impacted by the effect of retroactive tax legislation passed in the third quarter extending certain tax benefits. The fourth quarter tax rate was positively impacted by a change in the estimated benefit the Company expects to receive from a tax deduction. The Company estimates that its effective tax rate on future earnings will approximate 38%.

Backlog

Backlog at June 30, 2013 totaled $626.7 million, an increase of $129.2 million, or 26.0%, compared to the backlog at June 30, 2012 of $497.5 million and decreased by $17.6 million, or 2.7%, compared to the March 31, 2013 backlog of $644.3 million. Project awards totaled $217.9 million and $1.0 billion in the three months and fiscal year ended June 30, 2013.

Financial Position

At June 30, 2013, the Company's cash balance was $63.8 million as compared to $39.7 million at June 30, 2012. The cash balance along with availability under the senior credit facility gives the Company liquidity of $175.4 million.

Earnings Guidance

The Company expects that fiscal 2014 revenues will be between $980 million and $1.04 billion and earnings to be between $1.00 and $1.15 per fully diluted share.

Backlog

We define backlog as the total dollar amount of revenues that we expect to recognize as a result of performing work that has been awarded to us through a signed contract, notice to proceed or other type of assurance that we consider firm. The following arrangements are considered firm:

  • fixed-price awards;
     
  • minimum customer commitments on cost plus arrangements; and
     
  • certain time and material arrangements in which the estimated value is firm or can be estimated with a reasonable amount of certainty in both timing and amounts.

For long-term maintenance contracts we include only the amounts that we expect to recognize into revenue over the next 12 months. For all other arrangements, we calculate backlog as the estimated contract amount less revenues recognized as of the reporting date.
