Sterling Construction sees 2019 revenue $1.065B-$1.085B, consensus $1.06B
The company said, "Despite the delayed starts on several large heavy civil projects, we continue to expect to reach our previously articulated full year 2019 targets on an organic basis. We are revising our guidance for the full year 2019 to reflect our expectations for the incremental contribution from Plateau. We now expect our 2019 revenues to be in the range $1.065 billion to $1.085 billion and GAAP net income attributable to Sterling common stockholders of $16 million to $17 million with weighted average shares of approximately 27.3 million. Our full year GAAP net income guidance includes acquisition related costs of approximately $4 million and approximately $9 million of early debt extinguishment cost related to the refinancing of our principle borrowing facility. We expect our full year adjusted net income attributable to Sterling common stockholders to be $29 million to $30 million, excluding the aforementioned acquisition related and early debt extinguishment costs. Looking ahead to 2020, we expect substantial growth in our consolidated net income as we recognize a full year of Plateau contribution, work starts on the large heavy civil projects that were delayed in 2019, along with other projects in our combined backlog, and benefit from continued profitable growth in our residential business driven by continued expansion in Houston and ongoing market strength in Tealstone's core Dallas-Fort Worth market."
