Management Discussion
  • The increase in revenues for our Engineering and Other Scientific segment was due to an increase in billable hours and an increase in billing rates. During 2019, billable hours for this segment increased by 9.3% to 1,084,000 as compared to 992,000 during 2018. This segment had strong growth in its biomedical engineering, buildings & structures, construction consulting, human factors, materials & corrosion engineering, thermal sciences, and polymer science & materials chemistry practices. We continued to see strong demand from multinational companies for our scientific expertise and advice regarding their products. Safety concerns regarding energy storage systems drove increased demand for risk assessments in the consumer products, transportation, utility and medical device industries. The increase in billable hours was also due to fiscal 2019 having one additional week of activity than fiscal 2018. Utilization decreased to 73% for 2019 as compared to 75% for 2018. The decrease in utilization was due to the completion of a large human factors’ assessment in the third quarter of 2018. Technical full-time equivalents increased 9.2% to 699 for 2019 as compared to 640 for 2018 due to our recruiting and retention efforts.
