Financial report summary

  • Business and Operations Risk Factors
  • Our results of operations could be adversely affected by the coronavirus disease 2019 ("COVID-19") pandemic.
  • Continuing worldwide political, social and economic uncertainties may adversely affect our revenue and profitability.
  • Changes in tax laws could increase our tax rate and materially affect our results of operations.
  • Demand for our services is cyclical and vulnerable to economic downturns. If economic growth slows, government fiscal conditions worsen, or client spending declines further, then our revenue, profits and financial condition may deteriorate.
  • Our international operations expose us to legal, political, and economic risks in different countries as well as currency exchange rate fluctuations that could harm our business and financial results.
  • The United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union could have an adverse effect on our business and financial results.
  • We derive a substantial amount of our revenue from U.S. federal, state and local government agencies, and any disruption in government funding or in our relationship with those agencies could adversely affect our business.
  • Our inability to win or renew U.S. government contracts during regulated procurement processes could harm our operations and significantly reduce or eliminate our profits.
  • Each year, client funding for some of our U.S. government contracts may rely on government appropriations or public-supported financing. If adequate public funding is delayed or is not available, then our profits and revenue could decline.
  • Our U.S. federal government contracts may give government agencies the right to modify, delay, curtail, renegotiate, or terminate existing contracts at their convenience at any time prior to their completion, which may result in a decline in our profits and revenue.
  • As a U.S. government contractor, we must comply with various procurement laws and regulations and are subject to regular government audits; a violation of any of these laws and regulations or the failure to pass a government audit could result in sanctions, contract termination, forfeiture of profit, harm to our reputation or loss of our status as an eligible government contractor and could reduce our profits and revenue.
  • If we extend a significant portion of our credit to clients in a specific geographic area or industry, we may experience disproportionately high levels of collection risk and nonpayment if those clients are adversely affected by factors particular to their geographic area or industry.
  • We have made and expect to continue to make acquisitions. Acquisitions could disrupt our operations and adversely impact our business and operating results. Our failure to conduct due diligence effectively, or our inability to successfully integrate acquisitions, could impede us from realizing all of the benefits of the acquisitions, which could weaken our results of operations.
  • If our goodwill or intangible assets become impaired, then our profits may be significantly reduced.
  • We could be adversely affected by violations of the FCPA and similar worldwide anti-bribery laws.
  • We could be adversely impacted if we fail to comply with domestic and international export laws.
  • If we fail to complete a project in a timely manner, miss a required performance standard, or otherwise fail to adequately perform on a project, then we may incur a loss on that project, which may reduce or eliminate our overall profitability.
  • The loss of key personnel or our inability to attract and retain qualified personnel could impair our ability to provide services to our clients and otherwise conduct our business effectively.
  • Our revenue and growth prospects may be harmed if we or our employees are unable to obtain government granted eligibility or other qualifications we and they need to perform services for our customers.
  • Our actual business and financial results could differ from the estimates and assumptions that we use to prepare our consolidated financial statements, which may significantly reduce or eliminate our profits.
  • Our profitability could suffer if we are not able to maintain adequate utilization of our workforce.
  • Our use of the percentage-of-completion method of revenue recognition could result in a reduction or reversal of previously recorded revenue and profits.
  • If we are unable to accurately estimate and control our contract costs, then we may incur losses on our contracts, which could decrease our operating margins and reduce our profits. Specifically, our fixed-price contracts could increase the unpredictability of our earnings.
  • Our failure to adequately recover on claims brought by us against clients for additional contract costs could have a negative impact on our liquidity and profitability.
  • If we are not able to successfully manage our growth strategy, our business and results of operations may be adversely affected.
  • Our backlog is subject to cancellation, unexpected adjustments and changing economic conditions, and is an uncertain indicator of future operating results.
  • Cyber security breaches of our systems and information technology could adversely impact our ability to operate.
  • If our business partners fail to perform their contractual obligations on a project, we could be exposed to legal liability, loss of reputation and profit reduction or loss on the project.
  • If our contractors and subcontractors fail to satisfy their obligations to us or other parties, or if we are unable to maintain these relationships, our revenue, profitability, and growth prospects could be adversely affected.
  • Changes in resource management, environmental, or infrastructure industry laws, regulations, and programs could directly or indirectly reduce the demand for our services, which could in turn negatively impact our revenue.
  • Changes in capital markets could adversely affect our access to capital and negatively impact our business.
  • Restrictive covenants in our credit agreement may restrict our ability to pursue certain business strategies.
  • Our industry is highly competitive, and we may be unable to compete effectively, which could result in reduced revenue, profitability and market share.
  • Legal proceedings, investigations, and disputes could result in substantial monetary penalties and damages, especially if such penalties and damages exceed or are excluded from existing insurance coverage.
  • Unavailability or cancellation of third-party insurance coverage would increase our overall risk exposure as well as disrupt the management of our business operations.
  • Our inability to obtain adequate bonding could have a material adverse effect on our future revenue and business prospects.
  • Employee, agent, or partner misconduct, or our failure to comply with anti-bribery and other laws or regulations, could harm our reputation, reduce our revenue and profits, and subject us to criminal and civil enforcement actions.
  • Our business activities may require our employees to travel to and work in countries where there are high security risks, which may result in employee death or injury, repatriation costs or other unforeseen costs.
  • Our failure to implement and comply with our safety program could adversely affect our operating results or financial condition.
  • We may be precluded from providing certain services due to conflict of interest issues.
  • If our reports and opinions are not in compliance with professional standards and other regulations, we could be subject to monetary damages and penalties.
  • We may be subject to liabilities under environmental laws and regulations.
  • Force majeure events, including natural disasters, pandemics and terrorist actions, could negatively impact the economies in which we operate or disrupt our operations, which may affect our financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows.
  • We have only a limited ability to protect our intellectual property rights, and our failure to protect our intellectual property rights could adversely affect our competitive position.
  • Assertions by third parties of infringement, misappropriation or other violations by us of their intellectual property rights could result in significant costs and substantially harm our business, financial condition and operating results.
  • Our stock price could become more volatile and stockholders’ investments could lose value.
  • Delaware law and our charter documents may impede or discourage a merger, takeover, or other business combination even if the business combination would have been in the short-term best interests of our stockholders.
Management Discussion
  • In the second quarter of fiscal 2021, revenue and revenue, net of subcontractor costs, increased $20.6 million, or 2.8%, and $15.4 million, or 2.6%, respectively, compared to the year-ago quarter. Excluding the net contributions from the aforementioned acquisitions/disposal, our revenue was comparable to the second quarter of fiscal 2020.
  • In the first half of fiscal 2021, revenue and revenue, net of subcontractor costs, decreased $11.9 million, or 0.8%, and increased $6.5 million, or 0.5%, respectively, compared to the prior-year period. Excluding the net contributions from the aforementioned acquisitions/disposal, our revenue decreased 3.8% in the first half of fiscal 2021 compared to the prior-year period. The decline was primarily due to the adverse impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly on our U.S. and international commercial revenue.
  • During the second quarter of fiscal 2020, we took actions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure the health and safety of our employees, clients, and communities. These actions included activating our Business Continuity Plan globally, which enabled 95% of our workforce to work remotely and all 450 of our global offices to remain operational supporting our programs and projects. This required incremental costs for employee relocation, expansion of our virtual private network capabilities, enhanced security, and sanitizing of our offices. In addition, we incurred severance costs to right-size select operations where projects were cancelled specifically due to COVID-19 concerns and the resulting macroeconomic conditions. These incremental costs totaled $8.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020. Although the charges were recognized in the second quarter, substantially all of these costs were paid in cash in the third quarter of fiscal 2020.
