PRIMORIS SERVICES CORPORATION

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(In thousands, except per share amounts)
(Unaudited)

Note 1—Business Activity

         Organization and operations Primoris Services Corporation and its wholly-owned subsidiaries ARB, Inc. ("ARB"), ARB Structures, Inc., Onquest, Inc., Born Heaters Canada, ULC, Cardinal Contractors, Inc., GML Coatings, LLC, Cardinal Mechanical, L.P., Stellaris, LLC and ARB Ecuador, Ltda, collectively the "Company", are engaged in various construction and engineering activities. The Company's underground and directional drilling operations install, replace and repair natural gas, petroleum, telecommunications and water pipeline systems. The Company's industrial, civil and engineering operations construct and provide maintenance services to industrial facilities including power plants, petrochemical facilities, and other processing plants, and construct multi-level parking structures. The Company is incorporated in the State of Delaware and has its corporate headquarters in Lake Forest, California.

Note 2—Basis of Presentation

         Interim Consolidated Financial Statements The interim condensed consolidated financial statements for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2009 and 2008 have been prepared in accordance with Regulation S-X Rule 10-01 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. As such, certain disclosures, which would substantially duplicate the disclosures contained in the Company's latest audited consolidated financial statements, have been omitted. This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2009 (the "First Quarter 2009 Report") should be read in concert with the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed on March 24, 2009, which contains the Company's audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2008.

        The interim financial information for the three month-periods ended March 31, 2009 and 2008 is unaudited and has been prepared on the same basis as the audited financial statements. However, the financial statements contained in this First Quarter 2009 Report do not include all of the information and disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") for audited financial statements. In the opinion of management, such unaudited information includes all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for the fair presentation of the interim financial information.

         Revenue recognition A number of factors relating to the business of the Company affect the recognition of contract revenue. The Company typically structures contracts as unit-price, time and material, fixed-price or cost plus fixed fee. Revenue is recognized on the percentage-of-completion method for all fixed-price contracts. Under the percentage-of-completion method, estimated contract income and resulting revenue is generally accrued based on costs incurred to date as a percentage of total estimated costs. Total estimated costs, and thus contract revenue and income, are impacted by changes in productivity, scheduling, the unit cost of labor, subcontracts, materials and equipment and other unforeseen events. Additionally, external factors such as weather, client needs, client delays in providing permits and approvals, labor availability, governmental regulation and politics may affect the progress of a project's completion and thus the timing of revenue recognition. If a current estimate of total contract cost indicates a loss on a contract, the projected loss is recognized in full when determined.

        The caption " Costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings " represents the excess of contract revenues from fixed-priced contracts recognized under the percentage-of-completion method over

Note 2—Basis of Presentation (Continued)

billings to date. For those fixed-priced contracts in which billings exceed contract revenues recognized to date, such excesses are included in the caption " Billings in excess of costs and estimated earnings ".

        Revenues on cost-plus and time and materials contracts are recognized as the related work is completed.

        In accordance with the terms of the contracts, certain retainage provisions are withheld by customers until completion and acceptance of the contracts. Final payments of the majority of such amounts are expected to be receivable in the following operating cycle.

Note 3—Recent Accounting Pronouncements

        In April 2009, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued four new accounting pronouncements. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the following:

    FASB Staff Position FAS 157-4, " Determining Fair Value When the Volume and Level of Activity for the Asset or Liability Have Significantly Decreased and Identifying Transactions That Are Not Orderly " ("FSP FAS 157-4") provides guidelines for making fair value measurements more consistent with the principles presented in Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ("SFAS") No. 157. FSP FAS 157-4 provides additional authoritative guidance in determining whether a market is active or inactive, and whether a transaction is distressed, is applicable to all assets and liabilities (i.e. financial and non-financial) and will require enhanced disclosures. This pronouncement is required to be adopted during our second quarter 2009.

    FASB Staff Position FAS 115-2 and FAS 124-2, " Recognition and Presentation of Other-Than-Temporary Impairments " provides additional guidance to provide greater clarity about the credit and noncredit component of an other-than-temporary impairment event and to improve presentation and disclosure of other-than-temporary impairments in the financial statements. This pronouncement is required to be adopted during our second quarter 2009.

    FASB Staff Position FAS 107-1 and APB 28-1, " Interim Disclosures about Fair Value of Financial Instruments " amends FASB Statement No. 107, " Disclosures about Fair Value of Financial Instruments ", to require disclosures about fair value of financial instruments in interim as well as in annual financial statements. This FSP also amends Accounting Principles Board ("APB") Opinion No. 28, " Interim Financial Reporting ", to require those disclosures in all interim financial statements. This pronouncement is required to be adopted during our second quarter 2009.

    FASB Staff Position FAS 141(R)-1, " Accounting for Assets Acquired and Liabilities Assumed in a Business Combination That Arises from Contingencies " amends and clarifies FASB Statement No. 141 (revised 2007), " Business Combinations ", and provides guidelines for the initial recognition and measurement, subsequent measurement and accounting, and disclosure of assets and liabilities arising from contingencies in a business combination. This pronouncement is effective upon any acquisition we make subsequent to January 1, 2009.

Note 4—Fair Value Measurements

        On January 1, 2008, the Company adopted SFAS No. 157, " Fair Value Measures " ("SFAS No. 157"). This Statement defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in GAAP, expands disclosures about fair value measurements and applies under other accounting pronouncements that require or permit fair value measurements. SFAS No. 157 does not require any new fair value measurements. The 2008 adoption related to our financial assets and financial liabilities that are re-measured and reported at fair value at each reporting period.

        In accordance with FASB Staff Position No. FAS-157-2, on January 1, 2009, the Company adopted SFAS No. 157 for non-financial assets and liabilities, which included goodwill and other intangible assets for purposes of impairment assessments. This adoption in 2009 did not have a material impact on the financial statements of the Company.

        In general, fair values determined by Level 1 inputs utilize quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. Fair values determined by Level 2 inputs utilize data points that are observable such as quoted prices, interest rates and yield curves. Fair values determined by Level 3 inputs are "unobservable data points" for the asset or liability and include situations where there is little, if any, market activity for the asset or liability.

        The following table presents, for each of the fair value hierarchy levels required under SFAS No. 157, the Company's financial assets that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis at March 31, 2009 and December 31, 2008:

Short-term investments

  $ 15,036   $ 15,036          

        Other financial instruments of the Company consist of accounts receivable, accounts payable and certain accrued liabilities. The carrying value of the Company's notes payable approximates fair value based on comparison with current prevailing market rates for loans of similar risks and maturities. The Company's other financial instruments generally approximate fair market value based on the short-term nature of these instruments.

the completion of the contract are considered advances on account of the related partner's share as determined at the completion of the underlying contract. The deficit shown in the table above due to the excess distributions received has been included in accrued expenses on the Company's condensed consolidated balance sheet.

        The Company has a 49% interest in ARB Arendal, SRL de CV ("ARB Arendal"), and accounts for this investment under the equity method. ARB Arendal engages in construction activities in Mexico. Because of the uncertainty on the outcome of the negotiations of ARB Arendal with a major customer in Mexico, the Company determined there was an other than temporary impairment of its investment in ARB Arendal and wrote down its investment to $0 as of December 31, 2007, and has not recognized any earnings for the three months ended March 31, 2009.

        The Company purchased a 49% interest in All Day Electric ("All Day") in December 2008 for $500 and accounts for this investment under the equity method. All Day engages in electrical construction activities mainly in Northern California.

Note 9—Credit Arrangements

        On July 31, 2008, we completed a merger ("Merger") of Rhapsody Acquisition Corp. and Primoris Corporation, a privately held Nevada corporation ("Former Primoris"). Prior to the Merger, on March 2007, Former Primoris entered into a new revolving line of credit agreement payable to a bank group with an interest rate of prime or at LIBOR plus an applicable margin. The revolving line is secured by substantially all the assets of the Company. The Company can borrow up to $30,000 based on a defined

rate of interest, and all amounts borrowed under the line of credit are due March 31, 2010. There were no amounts outstanding under the line of credit at March 31, 2009 or December 31, 2008, other than letters of credit issued in the amounts of $677 and $677, respectively, which reduces the amount available on the revolving line.

        Also prior to the Merger, in January 2008, Former Primoris entered into a credit facility (as amended) for purposes of issuing commercial letters of credit in Canada, for an amount up to 10 million Canadian dollars. The credit facility with a Canadian bank is for a term of 5 years, and provides for an annual fee of 1% for any issued and outstanding commercial letters of credit. Letters of credit can be denominated in either Canadian or U.S. dollars. As of March 31, 2009 and December 31, 2008, total commercial letters of credit outstanding under this credit facility totaled $4,981 and $4,981 (in U.S. dollars), respectively.

Note 10—Related Party Transactions

        The Company has entered into various transactions with Stockdale Investment Group, Inc. ("SIGI"). The majority stockholder, Chief Executive Officer, President and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Company, Brian Pratt, also holds a majority interest in SIGI. In addition, the following two officers and/or directors of the Company also serve as officers and/or directors of SIGI (with their respective positions with SIGI reflected in parentheses): Brian Pratt (chairman and director) and John M. Perisich (secretary).

        Two officers and/or directors of the Company also served as officers and directors of SIGI in the past, including John P. Schauerman (president and director) and Scott Summers (vice president and director).

        The Company leases properties from SIGI located in Bakersfield, Pittsburg and San Dimas, California, as well as a property in Pasadena, Texas. During the three months ended March 31, 2009 and 2008, the Company paid $190 and $260, respectively, in lease payments to SIGI for the use of these properties. Prior to the Merger, the Company also leased certain construction and transportation equipment from SIGI. This equipment was purchased from SIGI on the closing date of the Merger and the leases were terminated.

        The Company leased an airplane from SIGI for business use. During the three months ended March 31, 2009 and 2008, the Company paid $60 and $60, respectively, in lease payments to SIGI for the use of the airplane. This lease commenced on May 1, 2004 and was terminated on March 31, 2009.

        The Company leases certain property from Roger Newnham, a manager at the subsidiary Born Heaters Canada. The property is located in Calgary, Canada. This lease was entered into on similar terms as negotiated with an independent third party. During the period ended March 31, 2009 and 2008, the Company paid $86 and $74, respectively, in lease payments to Mr. Newnham for the use of this property. The three-year lease for the Calgary property commenced in October 2005 and was renewed and extended until September 2009.

Note 11—Income Taxes and Pro Forma Net Income

    Income Taxes

        The effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2009 ("First Quarter 2009") was 39.0%. The rate for the First Quarter 2009 differs from the U.S. federal statutory rate of 35% due primarily to state income tax and Domestic Production Activity Deduction.

        To determine its quarterly provision for income taxes, the Company uses an estimated annual effective tax rate, which is based on expected annual income, statutory tax rates and tax planning opportunities available in the various jurisdictions to which the Company is subject. Certain significant or unusual items are separately recognized in the quarter in which they occur and can be a source of variability in the effective tax rate from quarter to quarter.

        Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences of temporary differences between the financial reporting basis and tax basis of the Company's assets and liabilities. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date.

        The Company adopted the provisions of FASB Interpretation No. 48 ("FIN 48"), " Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes—an interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109 ", on January 1, 2007. As of March 31, 2009 and December 31, 2008, there were no recorded liabilities related to unrecognized tax benefits. Management does not anticipate that there will be a material change in the balance of unrecognized tax benefits within the next 12 months.

        The Company recognizes interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions in income tax expense.

        The tax years 2004 through 2008 remain open to examination by the major taxing authorities to which the Company is subject.

        The effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2008 was 2.0%, representing primarily Canadian and California income taxes. Through July 31, 2008, the date of the Merger, Former Primoris elected to be taxed in accordance with Subchapter S of the United States Internal Revenue Code ("Code") and similar codes for certain states. While this election was in effect, the income was taxed for federal income tax purposes to the stockholders of Former Primoris. Accordingly, no provision for federal income tax was required by Former Primoris.

    Pro Forma Net Income

        Pro forma net income is shown on the condensed consolidated statements of income, and reflects an adjustment for income tax at the applicable statutory rates as if the Company had been taxed in accordance with Subchapter C of the Code since the beginning of 2008 using an effective tax rate of 39.8 percent.

Note 13—Commitments and Contingencies

         Leases The Company leases certain property and equipment under non-cancellable operating leases, which expire at various dates through 2019. The leases require the Company to pay all taxes, insurance, maintenance, and utilities with respect to such property and equipment.

        Certain of these leases are with related entities, which share similar ownership by stockholders, officers, and directors with the Company. The leases are classified as operating leases in accordance with SFAS No. 13, " Accounting for Leases ".

        Total lease expense during the three months ended March 31, 2009 and 2008 amounted to approximately $2,008 and $2,100, respectively, including amounts paid to related parties of $276 and $260, respectively.

         Letters of credit At March 31, 2009 and December 31, 2008, the Company had letters of credit outstanding of approximately $5,658 and $5,658, respectively.

         Litigation— The Company is subject to claims and legal proceedings arising out of its business. Management believes that the Company has meritorious defenses to such claims. Although management is unable to ascertain the ultimate outcome of such matters, after review and consultation with counsel and taking into consideration relevant insurance coverage and related deductibles, management believes that the outcome of these matters will not have a materially adverse effect on the consolidated financial position of the Company.

         Bonding— As of March 31, 2009 and December 31, 2008, the Company had bid and payment/performance bonds issued and outstanding totaling approximately $337,554 and $353,008, respectively.

Introduction

        Primoris Services Corporation is a holding company with various subsidiaries that, cumulatively form a diversified engineering and construction company providing a wide range of construction, fabrication, maintenance, replacement and engineering services to major public utilities, petrochemical companies, energy companies, municipalities and other customers.

        We install, replace, repair and rehabilitate natural gas, refined product, telecommunications, water and wastewater pipeline systems, and also construct mechanical facilities and other structures, including power plants, petrochemical facilities, refineries and parking structures. In addition, we provide maintenance services, including inspection, overhaul and emergency repair services, to cogeneration plants, refineries and similar mechanical facilities. Through our subsidiary Onquest, Inc., we provide engineering and design services for fired heaters and furnaces primarily used in refinery applications. Through our subsidiary Cardinal Contractors, Inc., we construct water and wastewater facilities in Florida. A substantial portion of our activities are performed in the Western United States, and more specifically in California. In addition, we have strategic presences in Florida, Texas, Latin America and Canada.

Table of Contents

        On July 31, 2008, we completed a merger ("Merger") of Rhapsody Acquisition Corp. ("Rhapsody") and Primoris Corporation, a privately held Nevada corporation ("Former Primoris"). Unless specifically noted otherwise, as used throughout this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, "Primoris", the "Company" or "we," "our," or "us" refers to the business, operations and financial results of Former Primoris prior to, and Primoris Services Corporation subsequent to, the closing of the Merger on July 31, 2008, between Rhapsody and Former Primoris as the context requires. "Rhapsody" refers to the operations or financial results of Rhapsody Acquisition Corp. prior to the closing of the Merger.

        The Merger was accounted for as a reverse acquisition. Under this method of accounting, we were treated as the "acquired" company for financial reporting purposes. This determination was primarily based on the operations and management of Former Primoris comprising the ongoing operations and management of the Company after the Merger. In accordance with guidance applicable to these circumstances, the Merger was considered to be a capital transaction in substance. Accordingly, for accounting purposes, the Merger was treated as the equivalent of Former Primoris issuing stock for our net assets, accompanied by a recapitalization. Our pre-Merger net assets are stated at historical cost, with no goodwill or other intangible assets recorded.

        We make available free of charge through our Internet Web site our press releases, our Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, Current Reports on Form 8-K and all other required filings with the SEC and amendments thereto as soon as reasonably practical after they are electronically filed with, or furnished to, the SEC. Our principal executive offices are located at 26000 Commercentre Drive, Lake Forest, California 92630, and our telephone number is (949) 598-9242. Our Web site address is www.primoriscorp.com . The information on our Web site is neither part of nor incorporated by reference into this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

        We provide services in the following two segments:

Construction Services Segment:

        The Construction Services segment specializes in a range of services that include designing, building/installing, replacing, repairing/rehabilitating and providing management services for construction related projects. Our services include:

    Providing installation of underground pipeline, cable and conduits for entities in the petroleum, petrochemical and water industries;

    Providing installation and maintenance of industrial facilities for entities in the petroleum, petrochemical and water industries; and

    Providing installation of complex commercial and industrial cast-in-place structures.

Engineering Segment:

        The Engineering group specializes in designing, supplying and installing high-performance furnaces, heaters, burner management systems, and related combustion and process technologies for clients in the oil refining, petrochemical, and power generation industries. It also furnishes turnkey project management with the technical expertise and the ability to deliver custom engineering solutions worldwide.

Material trends and uncertainties

        We generate our revenue from both large and small construction and engineering projects. The award of these contracts is dependent on a number of factors, many of which are not within our control. Business in the construction industry is cyclical. We depend in part on spending by companies

19


Table of Contents


in the energy, and oil and gas industries, as well as on municipal water and wastewater customers. Over the past several years, both our Construction Services and Engineering segments have benefited from demand for more efficient and more environmentally friendly energy and power facilities and from the past strength of the oil and gas industry. Economic factors outside of our control may affect the amount and size of contracts in any particular period.

        The current economic issues in the financial markets will likely have some impact on our future results. While we currently have adequate backlog and projects to bid, we are uncertain as to how the current global financial turmoil will impact our clients who provide our future work.

Seasonality and cyclicality

        Our operating results can be subject to seasonal and cyclical variations. Weather, particularly rain, can impact our ability to perform construction work. Our clients' budget cycles have an impact on the timing of project awards. Accordingly, our financial condition and operating results may vary from quarter-to-quarter. Absent the awarding of a large project, revenues tend to be lowest in our first fiscal quarter.

Results of operations

        Revenues, gross profit, operating income and net income for the three months ended March 31, 2009 and 2008 were as follows:

During the year 2008, we attained record levels of revenue and operating income, and have seen a decrease in both the Construction Services and Engineering segments during the First Quarter 2009. The decrease in revenues during the First Quarter 2009 compared to the same period a year ago was due primarily as a result of decreased revenues in refining sector projects and the performance of an unusually large engineering project during 2008.

20


Table of Contents

        Gross profit decreased by $1.5 million, or 9.2%, for the First Quarter 2009 compared to the same period in 2008 due primarily as a result of the reduced revenues in refining sector projects compared to the first quarter of 2008. Gross profit as a percent of revenues increased to 11.4% during the First Quarter 2009 from 9.6% in the prior year quarter. The First Quarter 2009 benefited from higher margin industrial work in the petroleum and power sectors as compared to lower margin work on industrial projects in the refining sector in the prior year quarter.

        Revenue for the Construction Services segment decreased by $36.4 million, or 24.9%, for the First Quarter 2009 compared to the same period in 2008. This revenue decrease was due primarily to reduced revenues for projects in the refining sector compared to the first quarter 2008. The revenue decrease was offset by increased revenue of $18.8 million in underground projects, including pipeline, cable and conduit projects, reflecting significant work begun at the end of 2008 and early 2009. Revenue generated by our subsidiary in Ecuador increased by $5.1 million due to two new projects in the current period.

        Construction Services segment gross profit decreased by $1.8 million, or 12.0%, for the First Quarter 2009 compared to the same period of 2008. The decrease resulted from both the decreased revenue previously discussed, as well as improved margins as a percent of revenue. The margins

improved from 10.1% for the first quarter of the prior year to 11.8% for the First Quarter 2009. Of the $1.8 million gross profit decrease, approximately $3.7 million was due to decreased revenues, which was offset by gross profit of $1.9 million due to the improved gross profit percentage. The gross profit margins increased primarily due to a shift in business mix from, lower margin industrial projects in the refining sector during the first quarter in 2008, to higher margin industrial projects in the petroleum and power sectors this quarter. Offsetting these margin improvements were decreased margins for the First Quarter 2009 as a result of the completion of several projects in the prior year quarter 2008 whereby certain approved project change orders contributed to higher margins.

Engineering Segment

        Revenue and gross profit for the Engineering segment for the three months ended March 31, 2009 and 2008 were as follows:

Revenue

  $ 18,767         $ 23,022        

Gross Profit

    1,709     9.1 %   1,417     6.2 %

        Revenue decreased by $4.3 million, or 18.5%, for the First Quarter 2009 compared to the same period in 2008. The decrease was due primarily to the impact of an unusually large project reflecting activity during the first quarter 2008. This project was in the start-up assistance phase during the First Quarter 2009 and will be nearing client acceptance later in 2009.

        Engineering segment gross profit increased by $0.3 million, or 20.6%, for the First Quarter 2009 compared to the same period in 2008. The increase was based on higher gross profit margins, despite a decrease in revenues. The gross margin of 9.1% during the First Quarter 2009 was an increase from 6.2% for the same period in the prior year. Of the $0.3 million gross profit increase, approximately $0.9 million was due to the improved gross margin percentage during the First Quarter 2009, offset by a decrease of $0.6 million due to decreased revenues. During the prior year period in 2008, the lower gross margins were primarily due to a large, lower margin project in process, which is now nearing completion and is not significantly affecting the gross margin percentage during the First Quarter 2009.

Selling, general and administrative expenses

        Selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A") decreased $0.4 million, or 4.8%, for the First Quarter 2009 compared to the same period in 2008. The decrease was due primarily to a gain on the sale of operating equipment of $1.1 million recorded in SG&A as part of our fleet upgrade program. Under this program we routinely turn over our equipment during the first part of the fiscal year. A gain on sale of $0.1 million was recorded during the same period in the prior year. Excluding the gain on sale, SG&A increased by $0.6 million, or 7.5% during the First Quarter 2009. This increase was due primarily to increased public company accounting and compliance costs and increased long-term incentive compensation costs.

        SG&A as a percentage of revenue increased to 5.9% for the First Quarter 2009, from 4.7% for the same period in 2008. Excluding the impact of the gain on sale of equipment, SG&A as a percentage of sales was 6.8% and 4.8%, respectively, for the three months ended March 31, 2009 and 2008. The increased percentage for the First Quarter 2009 was due to the increased costs discussed above as well as due to the relatively fixed nature of administrative and management expenses, which did not decrease proportionally with the decreased revenues.

Other income and expense

        Non-operating income and expense items for the three months ended March 31, 2009 and 2008 were as follows:

        For the First Quarter 2009, we recognized income of $2.4 million from the Otay Mesa Power Partners ("OMPP") joint venture, a power plant construction project near San Diego, California, which we expect to complete later in 2009. This income was offset by a loss of $0.2 million from the All Day Electric joint venture, an electrical construction project in Northern California. Income from non-consolidated joint ventures for the same period in 2008 consisted of income of $1.8 million from the OMPP joint venture.

        Foreign exchange gains for both the First Quarter 2009 and for the same period in 2008 reflect currency exchange fluctuations of the United States dollar compared to the Canadian dollar. Our contracts in Calgary, Canada are sold based on United States dollars, but a portion of the work is paid for with Canadian dollars, which can create a currency exchange difference.

        For the First Quarter 2009, interest income decreased by $0.4 million compared to the same period in 2008. This was due to declining interest rates, as well as our decision to invest excess cash balances in Treasury bills and certificates of deposit ("CDs") rather than commercial paper. This decrease was partially offset by higher average cash and short term investment balances during the First Quarter 2009 compared to the same period in 2008. The decrease in interest income was offset by a decrease of $0.2 million in interest expense for the First Quarter 2009 compared to the same period in 2008.

Provision for income taxes

        Our provision for income tax increased $3.4 million for the First Quarter 2009 to $3.6 million from the same period in 2008 as a result of a change in our tax status from that of a Subchapter S of the Internal Revenue Code ("S-Corporation") to that of a Subchapter C of the Internal Revenue Code ("C-Corporation") as part of the Merger. Thereafter, the combined entity became subject to federal and state income tax in the jurisdictions in which we do business, including California. With the change in tax status, our effective tax rate for the First Quarter 2009 was 39.0%. Prior to the Merger, as an S-Corporation, we had no provision for federal income tax and only minimal provision for state income tax.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

        Recent global market and economic conditions have been, and continue to be, disruptive and volatile, having an adverse impact on financial markets in general. The volatility has reached unprecedented levels. As a result of concern about the stability of the markets and the strength of counterparties, many lenders and institutional investors have reduced and, in some cases, ceased to provide funding to borrowers resulting in severely diminished liquidity and credit availability. At this time, the extent to which these conditions will persist is unclear. To date, the Company's cost and availability of funding has not been adversely affected by illiquid credit markets, and we do not expect it to be materially impacted in the near future.

        At March 31, 2009, our balance sheet included a net cash balance of $59.1 million, and an additional $25.2 million in short-term investments. We continue to have borrowing capacity for our foreseeable needs based on our current cash flow forecast. We currently have a $30 million credit facility which expires on March 31, 2010 and a $10 million (Canadian dollars) facility for commercial letters of credit in Canada with an expiration date of December 31, 2012. At March 31, 2009, $5.7 million was outstanding on these two facilities representing issued letters of credit.

        The changes in assets and liabilities decreased operating cash flow by $2.7 million in the First Quarter 2009. The components of this change are included in the consolidated statements of cash flow. The significant changes include:

    a $6.6 million decrease in accounts receivable;

    a $7.9 million decrease in accounts payable;

    billings in excess of costs and estimated earnings decreased by $3.5 million;

    costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings decreased by $0.3 million;

    inventory, prepaids and other current assets increased by $3.2 million; and

    restricted cash decreased by $2.9 million.

        The decrease in billings in excess of costs and estimated earnings was principally due to the timing of the billings on certain projects and the nature and type of projects.

        As of March 31, 2009, accounts receivable represented 34.5% of total assets. We have an excellent collection history stemming from many factors, including performing work for recurring customers and substantial pre-acceptance review of the financial worthiness and credit history of new customers. We bill customers on an ongoing basis as projects are being constructed. As a contractor, we have certain lien rights that can provide additional security on the accounts receivable that are generated, which may give priority to us over lenders or certain other creditors of the project. The decrease in both accounts receivable and accounts payable as of March 31, 2009, are due primarily to the timing of our billings to clients and payments to our vendors related to various construction projects, as well as the reduced revenues during the First Quarter 2009 compared to the same period in 2008.

Investing activities

        We purchased property and equipment for $4.2 million during the First Quarter 2009, and $8.5 million during the same period in 2008. These purchases were principally for our construction activities. For the First Quarter 2009 purchases, we paid $1.2 million in cash and incurred $ 3.0 million

25

in additional loan obligations, secured by the underlying equipment. We believe the ownership of equipment is generally preferable to renting equipment on a project by project basis, as ownership helps to ensure the equipment is available for our workloads when needed. In addition, ownership has historically resulted in lower overall equipment costs.

        As part of our cash management program, we invested an additional $10.1 million in short term investments during the First Quarter 2009, consisting primarily of CDs purchased through the CDARS (Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service) process to provide FDIC backing of the CDs.

Financing activities

        Financing activities required the use of $8.7 million of cash during the First Quarter 2009. Significant transactions using cash flows from financing activities included:

    Cash distributions of $4.9 million were paid to the Former Primoris stockholders during the First Quarter 2009. We provided distributions to the Former Primoris stockholders during the period that the Company was an S-Corporation, principally to allow them to pay their personal income tax liability stemming from the profits of the Company. This final distribution to Former Primoris stockholders was made in accordance with the terms of the merger agreement as part of the Merger.

    $2.5 million and $1.5 million in repayment of long-term debt during the three months ended March 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively, based on scheduled maturities of such debt.

    $0.8 million was paid as dividends to our stockholders during the First Quarter 2009 (representing a dividend of $0.025 per share).

    $0.1 million for the re-purchase of our warrants during the First Quarter 2009.

Capital Requirements

        We believe that we will be able to support our ongoing working capital needs through cash on hand, short term investments, operating cash flows and the availability under our existing credit facilities will be adequate to cover our operational and business needs for the next twelve months.

        During the First Quarter 2009, our operations provided net cash of $1.5 million compared to $13.5 million in the same period of 2008. The cash inflows for the first quarter of 2008 included a substantial cash inflow of $9.7 million relating to billings in excess of costs and estimated earnings, meaning that we received cash prior to performing the required construction or engineering work. For the First Quarter 2009, we experienced a decrease in cash as we used $3.5 million to pay in advance to complete the work to be performed. This change in cash typically will vary based on the timing of work and the related contractual billings on our projects.

Common Stock

        Prior to the Merger, Former Primoris was a non-publicly traded entity with 4,368 shares outstanding. At the time of the Merger, each Former Primoris share was converted into 5,400 shares of our common stock, for 23,587,200 shares. Additionally, as part of the Merger Agreement, two foreign managers of Former Primoris were issued 507,600 shares of common stock. All of these shares were subject to a sale restriction that expires on July 31, 2009.

        In addition, the Merger Agreement provided for a potential issuance of 2,500,025 shares of common stock to the Former Primoris stockholders for each of the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2009, if the Company achieves specific financial targets. We achieved the 2008 financial target in the third quarter of 2008 and 2,500,025 shares of common stock were issued to the Former Primoris stockholders during March 2009.

Credit agreements

        In October 2008, we borrowed $3.0 million from a bank at an interest rate of 5.5%. The terms of the signed note call for 60 consecutive monthly payments of principal and interest in the amount of $58,000 which commenced on November 3, 2008, with a maturity date of October 3, 2013. The note is secured by certain construction equipment. The note is guaranteed by our largest subsidiary, ARB, Inc.

        We terminated a lease on an older airplane and on October 17, 2008 we entered into a note agreement through our subsidiary, Stellaris, LLC, for $3.8 million with a bank to finance the purchase of a replacement airplane for business use. The note is secured by the airplane and all related parts and equipment. The terms of the note call for 59 monthly payments of principal and interest of $43,000 which began November 10, 2008, followed by one installment payment of $2.1 million in addition to any accrued and outstanding interest due. The note accrues interest at a rate of 5.6% annually. The note allows for prepayment with certain prepayment penalties if exercised in less than 36 months, and after that, the loan can be paid in full without penalty.

        In March 2007, we entered into a revolving line of credit agreement payable to Bank of America, N.A. (successor by merger to LaSalle Bank National Association) with an interest rate of prime or at LIBOR plus an applicable margin. The revolving line is secured by substantially all of our assets. Under the line of credit agreement, we can borrow up to $30.0 million, and all amounts borrowed under the line of credit are due March 31, 2010.

        In January 2008, we entered into a credit facility (as amended) for purposes of issuing commercial letters of credit in Canada, for an amount up to 10 million in Canadian dollars. The credit facility with a Canadian bank is for a term of 5 years, and provides for an annual fee of 1% for any issued and outstanding commercial letters of credit. Letters of credit can be denominated in either Canadian or U.S. dollars.

        Our subsidiaries and we enter into agreements with banks for the banks to issue letters of credit to clients or potential clients for two separate purposes as follows:

    Born Heaters Canada, one of our subsidiaries, has entered into contracts for the delivery of engineered equipment, which require letters of credit. These letters of credit may be drawn upon by the client in instances where Born Heaters Canada fails to provide the contracted services or equipment. Most of these letters of credit are for Canadian exports, 90% of that amount is guaranteed by the Economic Development Bank of Canada against "unfair" calling.

    Insurance companies may from time to time require letters of credit to cover the risk of insurance deductible programs. These letters of credit can be drawn upon by the insurance company if we fail to pay the deductible of certain insurance policies in case of a claim.

        The Bank of America line of credit agreement and the Canadian credit facility dated January 2008 contain restrictive covenants, including, among others, restrictions on investments, minimum working capital and tangible net worth requirements. We were in compliance with all restrictive covenants during and as of the First Quarter 2009. None of these covenants are considered restrictive to our business.

Related Party Transactions

        We have entered into various transactions with Stockdale Investment Group, Inc. ("SIGI"). Our majority stockholder, Chief Executive Officer, President and Chairman of the Board of Directors, Brian Pratt, also holds a majority interest in SIGI. In addition, two of our officers and/or directors also serve as officers and/or directors of SIGI (with their respective positions with SIGI reflected in parentheses): Brian Pratt (chairman and director) and John M. Perisich (secretary).

27


Table of Contents

        Two of our officers and/or directors also served as officers and directors of SIGI prior to the Merger, including John P. Schauerman (president and director) and Scott Summers (vice president and director).

        We lease properties from SIGI located in Bakersfield, Pittsburg and San Dimas, California, as well as a property in Pasadena, Texas. During the three months ended March 31, 2009 and 2008, we paid $190 and $260, respectively, in lease payments to SIGI for the use of these properties. Prior to the Merger, we also leased certain construction and transportation equipment from SIGI. This equipment was purchased from SIGI on the closing date of the Merger and the leases were terminated.

        We leased an airplane from SIGI for business use. During the three months ended March 31, 2009 and 2008, we paid $60 and $60, respectively, in lease payments to SIGI for the use of the airplane. This lease commenced on May 1, 2004, and was terminated on March 31, 2009.

        We lease a property from Roger Newnham, a manager at our subsidiary, Born Heaters Canada. The property is located in Calgary, Canada. This lease was entered into on similar terms as negotiated with an independent third party. During the period ended March 31, 2009 and 2008, we paid $86 and $74, respectively, in lease payments to Mr. Newnham for the use of this property. The three-year lease for the Calgary property commenced in October 2005 and was renewed and extended until September 2009.

Contractual Obligations

        As of March 31, 2009, we had $34.9 million of outstanding long-term debt and capital lease obligations.

Backlog

        In the industries in which we operate, backlog can be considered an indicator of potential future performance because it represents a portion of the future revenue stream. Different companies in our industry define backlog differently. We consider backlog as the anticipated revenue from the uncompleted portions of existing contracts. We calculate backlog differently for different types of contracts. For our fixed price and fixed unit price contracts, we include the full remaining portion of the contract in our calculation. Since their ultimate revenue amount is difficult to determine, we do not include unit-price, time-and-equipment, time-and-materials and cost-plus contracts in the calculation of backlog.

        Most fixed price contracts may be terminated by our customers on relatively short notice. In the event of a project cancellation, we may be reimbursed for certain costs, but typically we have no contractual right to the total revenues reflected in backlog. Projects may remain in backlog for extended periods of time.

        At March 31, 2009, our total backlog of $352.8 million decreased $34.2 million, or 8.8%, from $387.0 million as of March 31, 2008. We expect that approximately $280.0 million, or 80.0%, of the total backlog at March 31, 2009, will be recognized as revenue during the remainder of 2009.

        Backlog by operating segment at March 31, 2009 and 2008 was as follows:

        Our backlog at any point in time may not accurately represent the revenue that we expect to realize during any period. Additionally, our backlog at the end of the period may not be indicative of the revenue we expect to earn over the course of the following twelve months.

Item 3.    Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

        In the ordinary course of business, we are exposed to risks related to market conditions. These risks primarily include fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, interest rates and commodity prices. We may seek to manage these risks through the use of financial derivative instruments. These instruments may include foreign currency exchange contracts and interest rate swaps.

        We do not execute transactions or use financial derivative instruments for trading or speculative purposes. We enter into transactions with counter parties that are generally financial institutions in a matter to limit significant exposure with any one party.

        The carrying amounts for cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, notes payable and accounts payable and accrued liabilities shown in the condensed consolidated balance sheets approximate fair value at March 31, 2009 and December 31, 2008 due to the generally short maturities of these items. At March 31, 2009, we invested primarily in short-term dollar denominated bank deposits. We expect to hold our investments to maturity.

        At March 31, 2009, all of our long-term debt was under fixed interest rates.

        As of March 31, 2009, we had two derivative financial instruments for the purpose of hedging future currency exchange in Canadian dollars. The contracts enable us to purchase Canadian dollars before certain dates in 2009 at certain exchange rates. These contracts expire in April and June 2009. The related Canadian dollars purchased are one contract for $3.0 million CAD and one contract for $1.5 million CAD. The related gain or loss on these contracts is not significant at March 31, 2009. We intend to continue to hedge foreign currency risks in those situations where we believe such transactions are prudent.

Item 4T.    Controls and Procedures

(a)
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

        We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports under the Exchange Act, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including our Chief Executive Officer ("CEO") and Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer ("CFO"), as appropriate, to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, our management recognized that any system of controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, as ours are

designed to do, and our management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures.

        In connection with the preparation of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, as of March 31, 2009, an evaluation was performed under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our CEO and CFO, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and 15d -15(e) under the Exchange Act). Based on that evaluation, our CEO and CFO concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q to ensure that the information required to be disclosed by us in our reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms, and to ensure that the information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our CEO and CFO, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

        During our last fiscal quarter, there were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that would materially affect, or is reasonably likely to materially affect our internal control over financial reporting.


Part II. Other Information

Item 1.    Legal Proceedings

        We are from time to time subject to claims and legal proceedings arising out of our business. Our management believes that we have meritorious defenses to such claims. Although we are unable to ascertain the ultimate outcome of such matters, after review and consultation with counsel and taking into consideration relevant insurance coverage and related deductibles, management believes that the outcome of these matters will not have a materially adverse effect on our financial condition or results of operations.

Item 1A.    Risk Factors

        A description of the risk factors associated with our business is contained in Part I, Item 1A, " Risk Factors ," of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008. These cautionary statements are to be used as a reference in connection with any forward-looking statements. The factors, risks and uncertainties identified in these cautionary statements are in addition to those contained in any other cautionary statements, written or oral, which may be made or otherwise addressed in connection with a forward-looking statement or contained in any of our subsequent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). You should carefully consider the risk factors discussed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, as well as the other information in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, before deciding whether to invest in shares of our common stock. The occurrence of any of the risk factors discussed in our filings with the SEC could harm our business, financial condition, results of operations or growth prospects.

Item 2.    Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds

        On March 27, 2009, we announced that we entered into a Rule 10b5-1 trading plan with CJS Securities, Inc. to facilitate the repurchase of up to $1 million of our common stock purchase warrants ("Warrants"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one share of our common stock at a price of $5.00 per share and is exercisable at any time on or prior to October 2, 2010, unless earlier redeemed.
