LOWELL, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/05/12 -- TRC Companies, Inc. (NYSE: TRR), a recognized leader in engineering, consulting and construction management services to the energy, environmental and infrastructure markets, today announced financial results for the fiscal three months ended September 28, 2012.
Three Months Ended ---------------------------- September 28, September 30, (In millions, except per share data) 2012 2011 ------------- ------------- Net service revenue(1) $ 75.2 $ 73.5 Arena Towers litigation reversal (2) $ - $ (11.2) Operating income $ 4.6 $ 15.5 Federal and state income tax (provision) benefit (3) $ (0.2) $ 3.3 Net income applicable to TRC Companies, Inc. $ 4.3 $ 18.7 Diluted earnings per common share $ 0.15 $ 0.66 Diluted weighted-average common shares outstanding 29.4 28.4 (1) The Company believes net service revenue best reflects the value of services provided to its customers and is the most meaningful indicator of TRC's revenue performance. (2) On October 5, 2011 a post-trial motion was granted to disregard a substantial portion of the verdict in this matter resulting in an $11.2 million reduction of the litigation accrual in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 the Company had recorded litigation expense of $17.3 million related to the verdict. (3) The Company received approval of a federal tax settlement resulting in a one-time benefit in the first quarter of fiscal 2012.
Comments on the Results
"We reported incremental growth and steady profitability in the first quarter of fiscal 2013," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Chris Vincze. "Net Service Revenue (NSR) was up 2%, and we achieved operating income of $4.6 million, up 7% excluding last year's litigation reversal."
"Our Energy segment continues to be our top performer with NSR up 25% and profit up 42%. Demand remains strong for electric transmission and distribution engineering services as our utility customers increase investments to modernize or replace outdated infrastructure and enhance energy efficiency performance. Our Energy segment is also benefiting from greater geographic reach as recent office startups are now rapidly expanding our ability to service clients in those areas."
"Our Environmental and Infrastructure segments both experienced a sluggish quarter. NSR was down 6% for both segments, while profit decreased 22% and 20%, respectively. Importantly, however, each segment continued to be profitable at the operating level. Our results are consistent with the overall state of the economy as many clients have delayed or postponed capital programs until there is more clarity surrounding federal policy and the direction of the economy in the new year. The long-term prospects for the infrastructure market are supported by Congress' recent passing of the MAP-21 Federal Transportation Bill, which will provide states with a stable funding source through 2014."
"TRC's long-term opportunities remain promising with favorable underlying industry trends. We are seeing material capital spending in the energy and power markets where TRC has become a leader in providing integrated professional services. Proposal activity in these areas is strong, although funding commitments for some of these projects continues to be affected by economic and policy factors. In the interim, TRC is focused on enhancing our integrated service offerings -- such as RE Power, Shale Gas and Ports and Pipelines -- where we expect the activity levels to strengthen first. In addition, we are continuing to identify potential acquisition targets to support our geographic and service expansion strategy."

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
