Tutor Perini sees FY18 EPS $1.90-$2.30, consensus $2.66
Tutor Perini said: "The Company anticipates continued strong demand across various end markets. Revenue growth in 2018 is expected to be driven by higher volume of work in the Civil and Building segments, while increased operating income is expected to result from consistent operating margins in the Civil and Building segments and a higher operating margin in the Specialty Contractors segment. In addition, the lower effective tax rate resulting from recent tax reform together with reduced interest expense should positively benefit the Company's 2018 results. For 2018, the Company is establishing its initial EPS guidance at a range of $1.90 to $2.30 per diluted share. The Company's results are anticipated to be weighted towards the second half of 2018 due to the seasonality of the business."
