Highlight of Business Operations:

Our customer base is highly concentrated, with our top five customers accounting for approximately 58.5%, 59.6% and 62.0% of our total revenues in fiscal 2013, 2012, and 2011, respectively. During fiscal 2013, approximately 15.5% of our total revenues was derived from AT&T, 14.6% from CenturyLink, 10.9% from Comcast, 9.6% from Verizon, and 7.9% from Windstream. We believe that a substantial portion of our total revenues and operating income will continue to be derived from a concentrated group of customers.

Revenues from specialty construction services provided to telecommunications companies, excluding amounts attributed to businesses acquired in fiscal 2013, increased 8.9%, or $90.2 million, to $1,104.8 million during fiscal 2013 compared to $1,014.6 million during fiscal 2012. During fiscal 2013 and fiscal 2012, the Company earned revenues from storm restoration services of $16.7 million and $6.0 million, respectively. During fiscal 2013, revenues increased approximately $77.7 million for a significant customer, including revenues for services performed for its wireless network under contracts entered into during fiscal 2012. Revenues increased $26.7 million for three leading cable multiple system operators for maintenance and construction services, including services to provision fiber to small and medium businesses as well as network upgrades. Revenues increased $9.4 million for another cable multiple system operator enhancing its fiberoptic network. Additionally, revenues increased $8.0 million for a telephone customer which is expanding and enhancing its broadband services related to rural access lines it acquired and for broadband stimulus initiatives. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in revenue of $12.2 million for a telephone customer from decreases in services provided under existing contracts and broadband stimulus initiatives. Additionally, we experienced a decrease in revenue of $10.4 million for a significant telephone customer as a result of reduced spending in fiscal 2013 as compared to fiscal 2012. Other telecommunications customers had net decreases in revenue of $19.7 million in fiscal 2013 as compared to fiscal 2012.

General and Administrative Expenses. General and administrative expenses increased to $145.8 million during fiscal 2013 as compared to $104.0 million for fiscal 2012. General and administrative expenses as a percentage of contract revenues were 9.1% and 8.7% for fiscal 2013 and fiscal 2012, respectively. The increase in total general and administrative expenses for fiscal 2013 resulted primarily from the general and administrative costs of the businesses acquired in fiscal 2013 and approximately $6.8 million and $3.4 million of pre-tax acquisition and integration costs, respectively, during fiscal 2013. Additionally, stock-based compensation increased to $9.9 million during fiscal 2013 from $7.0 million during fiscal 2012. Other increases in general and administrative expenses were increased payroll expenses as a result of growth, increased incentive pay expenses from improved operations, and higher professional fees for legal and accounting services.

Revenues from specialty construction services provided to telecommunications companies increased 19.3%, or $164.1 million, to $1,014.6 million during fiscal 2012 compared to $850.5 million during fiscal 2011. Businesses acquired during the second quarter of fiscal 2011 generated $20.7 million of this increase. Revenue increased $50.5 million for a significant telephone customer for services provided under existing contracts, including fiber to the cell site activity, and for services provided under new contracts which expanded our geographic service area. For another significant telecommunications customer revenue increased $41.4 million for services provided under new contracts entered into during fiscal 2011 which expanded our geographic service area. Additionally, we had incremental revenue of $36.6 million for a telephone customer from services provided under existing contracts and rural broadband initiatives. For two leading cable multiple system operators, we experienced a $13.0 million increase in revenue for installation, maintenance, and construction services, which included services to provision fiber to cellular sites. Other telecommunications customers had net increases in revenue of $58.0 million for fiscal 2012, including services provided under new contracts for rural broadband initiatives, expanding both our customer base and geographic service areas. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in revenue of $50.6 million for a significant telephone customer compared to fiscal 2011 as a result of reduced spending by the customer in fiscal 2012 and a $5.6 million decline in services provided to another leading cable multiple system operator.

During fiscal 2012, net cash provided by operating activities was $65.1 million. Non-cash items during fiscal 2012 were primarily depreciation and amortization, gain on sale of assets, stock-based compensation, and deferred income taxes. Changes in working capital (excluding cash) and changes in other long term assets and liabilities used $37.9 million of operating cash flow during fiscal 2012. The primary working capital uses during fiscal 2012 were increases in accounts receivable of $3.4 million and increases in net costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings of $35.7 million. The increases in accounts receivable and costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings are a result of growth in operations during fiscal 2012 and changes to the customer mix compared to fiscal 2011. Other working capital changes that used operating cash flow during fiscal 2012 were increases in other current and other non-current assets combined of $6.3 million, primarily for higher levels of inventory, and decreases in accrued liabilities and accrued insurance claims of $1.2 million. Working capital sources of cash flow during fiscal 2012 were income taxes receivable of $5.7 million used during the period and increases in accounts payable of $3.0 million as a result of timing of higher operating levels and timing of payments.
