Comments on Segment Results "Our Energy segment experienced a 3% decline in NSR and 9% decline in segment profit year over year, driven by delays related to a significant new project award and timing associated with the receipt of change orders," Vincze continued. "In our Infrastructure segment, renewed transportation-related spending by our municipal and state clients drove a 10% increase in segment NSR on solid 20% margins. The 4% decline in segment profit was due to a significant change order awarded in the year-ago quarter. In our Environmental segment, the continued slowdown from certain oil and gas clients led to a 2% decline in NSR and a profit decline of 20% year-over-year.

"Our newest and fourth segment, Pipeline Services, has been affected by the downturn that has spread throughout the oil and gas sector," Vincze said. "Pipeline services delivered NSR of $21.6 million and a segment loss of $3.1 million. We have undertaken a series of cost reduction initiatives with total annualized savings of approximately $15 million, in order to align segment expenses with current revenues in this business. We also incurred $1.6 million of acquisition integration expenses in Q3. In addition, given the steep decline in near-term demand in the oil and gas sector, we incurred a non-cash goodwill impairment charge in the quarter associated with the Pipeline Services segment acquisition."

Business Outlook "We continue to believe in the long-term prospects for each of our segments. The underlying market fundamentals in our Energy segment remain strong, spurred by demand from our utility clients and activity on the energy efficiency and renewables fronts. Infrastructure segment backlog is healthy, driven by increased transportation spending at both the state and federal levels and a new federal transportation bill. Although we are experiencing a slowdown from our oil and gas clients in our Environmental segment, demand for services related to environmental remediation, construction, transaction support, the retirement of coal plants and the need to transport natural gas should contribute to segment revenue going forward. Despite the market constraints currently affecting our Pipeline Services segment, the long-term outlook is positive on the strength of domestic demand for energy, the need for comprehensive pipeline integrity management, an expected increase in U.S. fossil fuel exports and the transition from coal-fired power plants to natural gas."
