Highlight of Business Operations:

In July 2011, the Company entered into a Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Revolving Credit Agreement”) with Bank of America, N.A., as an administrative agent and a lender and the other lenders party thereto, which amended and restated its unsecured revolving credit facility and increased its available borrowing capacity to $1.05 billion in order to support its working capital and acquisition needs. The Revolving Credit Agreement has an expiration date of July 20, 2016 and prior to this expiration date, principal amounts outstanding under the Revolving Credit Agreement may be repaid and reborrowed at the option of the Company without prepayment or penalty, subject to certain conditions. The Company may also, at its option, request an increase in the commitments under the facility up to a total of $1.15 billion, subject to certain conditions, including Company and lender approval. The loans under the Revolving Credit Agreement may be borrowed in dollars or in certain foreign currencies and bear interest, at the Company’s option, at either the Base Rate (as defined in the Revolving Credit Agreement) plus an applicable margin or the Eurocurrency Rate (as defined in the Revolving Credit Agreement) plus an applicable margin. The applicable margin for the Base Rate loans is a range of 0.0% to 1.50% and the applicable margin for the Eurocurrency Rate loans is a range of 1.00% to 2.50%, both based on the Company’s debt-to-earnings leverage ratio at the end of each fiscal quarter. In addition to these borrowing rates, there is a commitment fee which ranges from 0.150% to 0.375% on any unused commitment. Accrued interest is payable in arrears on a quarterly basis for Base Rate loans, and at the end of the applicable interest period (but at least every three months) for Eurocurrency Loans. At March 31, 2012 and September 30, 2011, $204.0 million and $101.4 million, respectively, were outstanding under the revolving credit facility. At March 31, 2012 and September 30, 2011, outstanding standby letters of credit totaled $38.8 million and $32.1 million, respectively, under the revolving credit facility. As of March 31, 2012, the Company had $807.2 million available under its Revolving Credit Agreement.

Our gross profit for the three months ended March 31, 2012 decreased $23.6 million, or 23.6%, to $76.2 million as compared to $99.8 million for the corresponding period last year. Gross profit provided by acquired companies was $0.9 million. Excluding gross profit provided by acquired companies, gross profit decreased $24.5 million, or 24.5%, from the three months ended March 31, 2011. For the three months ended March 31, 2012, gross profit, as a percentage of revenue, net of other direct costs, decreased to 5.9% from 7.7% in the three months ended March 31, 2011.

Our gross profit for the six months ended March 31, 2012 decreased $38.6 million, or 18.8%, to $166.5 million as compared to $205.1 million for the corresponding period last year. Gross profit provided by acquired companies was $3.0 million. Excluding gross profit provided by acquired companies, gross profit decreased $41.6 million, or 20.3%, from the six months ended March 31, 2011. For the six months ended March 31, 2012, gross profit, as a percentage of revenue, net of other direct costs, decreased to 6.6% from 8.2% in the six months ended March 31, 2011.

In September 2011, we entered into an Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Term Credit Agreement”) with Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent and a lender, and the other lenders party thereto. Pursuant to the Term Credit Agreement, we borrowed $750 million in term loans on the closing date and may borrow up to an additional $100 million in term loans upon our request subject to certain conditions, including Company and lender approval. We used approximately $600 million of the proceeds from the loans to repay indebtedness under our prior term loan facility, approximately $147 million of the proceeds to pay down indebtedness under our revolving credit facility and a portion of the proceeds to pay fees and expenses related to the Term Credit Agreement. The loans under the Term Credit Agreement bear interest, at our option, at either the Base Rate (as defined in the Term Credit Agreement) plus an applicable margin or the Eurodollar Rate (as defined in the Term Credit Agreement) plus an applicable margin. The applicable margin for the Base Rate loans is a range of 0.375% to 1.50% and the applicable margin for Eurodollar Rate loans is a range of 1.375% to 2.50%, both based on our debt-to-earnings leverage ratio at the end of each fiscal quarter. The initial interest rate of the loans borrowed on September 30, 2011 was the 3 month Eurodollar rate plus 1.75%, or a total of 2.12%. For the six months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, the average interest rate of our term loan facility was 2.1% and 2.9%, respectively. Payments of the initial principal amount outstanding under the Term Credit Agreement are required on a quarterly basis beginning on December 31, 2012, while interest payments are made on a quarterly basis beginning December 31, 2011. Any remaining principal of the loans under the Term Credit Agreement is due no later than July 20, 2016. Accrued interest is payable in arrears on a quarterly basis for Base Rate loans, and at the end of the applicable interest period (but at least every three months) for Eurodollar Rate loans. We may optionally prepay the loans at any time, without penalty.
