PRIMORIS SERVICES CORPORATION

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Dollars 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., All Day Electric Company, Inc. (a 50% owned entity in 2010 and 100% owned entity in 2011), Onquest, Inc., Born Heaters Canada, ULC, Cardinal Contractors, Inc., GML Coatings, LLC, Cardinal Mechanical, L.P., Stellaris, LLC, James Construction Group LLC (“JCG”) and Rockford Corporation, collectively, are engaged in various construction and product 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 build and provide maintenance services to industrial facilities including power plants, petrochemical facilities, and other processing plants, and construct multi-level parking structures, engage in the construction of highways, bridges and other environmental construction activities. The Company is incorporated in the State of Delaware and in 2011 moved its corporate headquarters from Lake Forest, California to 2100 McKinney Avenue, Suite 1500, Dallas, Texas 75201.

 

On November 8, 2010, the Company entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Rockford Agreement”) to acquire all of the outstanding shares of privately held Rockford Corporation (“Rockford”).  Upon completion of the transaction on November 12, 2010, Rockford became a wholly owned subsidiary of Primoris.  The Rockford Agreement provided that the transaction was effective retroactive to October 1, 2010.  Based in Hillsboro (Portland), Oregon, Rockford specializes in the construction of large diameter natural gas and liquid pipelines and related facilities.

 

Unless specifically noted otherwise, as used throughout these condensed consolidated financial statements, “Primoris”, or the “Company”, “we”, “our”, “us” or “its” refers to the business, operations and financial results of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries.

 

Note 2—Basis of Presentation

 

Interim Consolidated Financial Statements The interim condensed consolidated financial statements for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2011 and 2010 have been prepared in accordance with Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). 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, 2011 (the “First Quarter 2011 Report”) should be read in concert with the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed on March 16, 2011, which contains the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2010.

 

The interim financial information for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2011 and 2010 is unaudited and has been prepared on the same basis as the audited consolidated financial statements. However, the financial statements contained in this First Quarter 2011 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, the unaudited information includes all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for the fair presentation of the interim financial information.

 

Revenue recognition The Company typically structures contracts as unit-price, time and material, fixed-price or cost reimbursable plus fee. Revenue is recognized on the cost-on-total-cost percentage-of-completion method for fixed price contracts.   In the percentage-of-completion method, estimated contract income and resulting revenue is calculated based on the total costs incurred to date as a percentage of total estimated costs. Total estimated costs, and thus contract revenues and income, can be impacted by changes in productivity, scheduling, the unit cost of labor, subcontracts, materials and equipment. 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 an estimate of total contract cost indicates a loss on a contract, the projected loss is recognized in full at the time of the estimate.

 

The caption “ Costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings ” represents the excess of contract revenues recognized under the percentage-of-completion method over billings to date. For those 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 applicable terms of construction contracts, certain retainage provisions may be withheld by customers until completion and acceptance of the project. Final payments of the majority of such amounts are expected to be receivable in the following operating cycle.

 

Customer Concentration — The Company operates in multiple industry segments encompassing the construction of commercial, industrial and public works infrastructure assets throughout primarily the United States. Typically, the top ten customers in any one calendar year, generate revenues in excess of 50% of total revenues and generally consist of a different group of customers in each year. During the three months ending March 31, 2011, revenues generated by Rockford under the Ruby contract were $126.9 million, which represented 35.3% of total revenues during the period. The Ruby contract is part of a large project for the construction of a natural gas pipeline from Wyoming to Oregon. The contract is a cost reimbursable plus a fixed fee arrangement and is expected to be substantially completed by the end of the third quarter 2011.

Note 3—Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

Fair Value Disclosures

 

In January 2010, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2010-06, “Improving Disclosures about Fair Value Measurements ” (an update to ASC Topic 820 “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures” ).   ASU 2010-06 requires additional disclosures about fair value measurements including transfers in and out of Levels 1 and 2 and a higher level of disaggregation for the different types of financial instruments. For the reconciliation of Level 3 fair value measurements, information about purchases, sales, issuances and settlements should be presented separately. This ASU is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2009 for most of the new disclosures and for periods beginning after December 15, 2010 for the new Level 3 disclosures. Comparative disclosures are not required in the first year the disclosures are required.  As of January 1, 2010, the Company adopted all the provisions of this accounting standard update, which did not result in a material impact on our financial statements.

 

Goodwill Impairment Testing

 

In December 2010, the FASB issued ASU 2010-28,  Intangibles - Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): When to Perform Step 2 of the Goodwill Impairment Test for Reporting Units with Zero or Negative Carrying Amounts (“ASU 2010-28”). ASU 2010-28 modifies Step 1 of the goodwill impairment test for reporting units with zero or negative carrying amounts. For those reporting units, an entity is required to perform Step 2 of the goodwill impairment test if it is more likely than not that a goodwill impairment exists. In determining whether it is more likely than not that a goodwill impairment exists, an entity should consider whether there are any adverse qualitative factors indicating that an impairment may exist. ASU 2010-28 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2010. The Company adopted this standard on January 1, 2011, which did not result in a material impact on our financial statements.

 

Supplementary Pro Forma Information for Business Combinations

 

In December 2010, the FASB issued ASU 2010-29, Disclosure of Supplementary Pro Forma Information for Business Combinations . The update requires that the pro forma information for business combinations to be presented as if the business combination occurred at the beginning of the prior annual reporting period when calculating both the current reporting period and the prior reporting period pro forma financial information. The update also expands the supplemental pro forma disclosures to include a description of the nature and amount of material, nonrecurring pro forma adjustments directly attributable to the business combination. The amended guidance is effective prospectively for business combinations for which the acquisition date is on or after the beginning of the first annual reporting period beginning on or after December 15, 2010. The Company adopted this update in the fourth quarter of 2010. Adoption did not have a material impact on our financial statements.

 

Note 4—Fair Value Measurements

 

ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures ”, defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in GAAP and requires certain disclosures about fair value measurements.  ASC Topic 820 addresses fair value GAAP for financial assets and financial liabilities that are re-measured and reported at fair value at each reporting period and for non-financial assets and liabilities that are re-measured and reported at fair value on a non-recurring basis.

 

In general, fair values determined by Level 1 use quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. Fair values determined by Level 2 inputs use 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, using the fair value hierarchy levels identified under ASC Topic 820, the Company’s financial assets that are required to be measured at fair value at March 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010:

Short-term investments consist primarily of Certificates of Deposit (“CDs”) purchased through the CDARS (Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service) program to provide Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation backing of the CDs and interest bearing money market accounts with various financial institutions.

 

In addition to the assets listed in the table, other financial instruments of the Company consist of accounts receivable, accounts payable and certain accrued liabilities.  These financial instruments generally approximate fair value based on the short-term nature of these instruments.  The carrying value of the Company’s long-term debt approximates fair value based on comparison with current prevailing market rates for loans of similar risks and maturities.

 

Note 5—Accounts Receivable

 

The following is a summary of the Company’s accounts receivable at the dates shown:

Note 8 — Business Combinations

 

The November 12, 2010 acquisition of Rockford was accounted for using the acquisition method of accounting. The fair value of the consideration transferred to selling shareholders was $79,623.

 

As part of the acquisition, the Company agreed to issue additional cash and common stock to the sellers, contingent upon Rockford meeting certain operating performance targets for the fourth quarter 2010 and for the periods ending December 31, 2011 and 2012.  The 2010 earnout target for the fourth quarter 2010 was achieved and in March 2011, the Company issued 494,095 shares of common stock to the sellers.  As discussed in Note 12 — “Contingent Earnout Liabilities” , the estimated fair value of the remaining contingency was $10,088 and $9,791 at March 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010, respectively.

 

There have been no changes in the preliminary estimates of the fair value of the acquired assets and liabilities during the three months ended March 31, 2011.  The Company has engaged outside experts to assist in determining the estimated fair value of certain acquired workers compensation and casualty liabilities.  Additionally, the Company is continuing its evaluation of the fair value of the construction equipment acquired.  The Company expects to complete the final determination of the estimated fair value of the acquisition prior to the end of 2011.

 

Supplemental Unaudited Pro Forma Information for the three months ended March 31, 2010

 

The following pro forma information for the three months ended March 31, 2010 presents the results of operations as if the Rockford acquisition had occurred at the beginning of 2010. The supplemental pro forma information has been adjusted to include:

 

·               the pro forma impact of amortization of intangible assets and depreciation of property, plant and equipment, based on the purchase price allocation;

 

·               the pro forma impact of interest expense on the $16,712 subordinated promissory note;

 

·               the pro forma tax effect of both the income before income taxes for Rockford and the Rockford pro forma adjustments, calculated using a tax rate of 39.8% for the three months ended March 31, 2010; and

 

·               the pro forma weighted average shares outstanding include 1,605,709 shares of common stock issued as part of the acquisition, plus the 494,095 shares of stock earned as a result of achieving the fourth quarter 2010 earnout target.

 

The pro forma results are presented for illustrative purposes only and are not necessarily indicative of or intended to represent the results that would have been achieved had the transaction been completed on January 1, 2010.  The pro forma results do not reflect any operating efficiencies and associated cost savings that the Company may have achieved with respect to the combined companies.

Note 11—Credit Arrangements

 

As of March 31, 2011, the Company has a Loan and Security Agreement (the “Agreement”) with The PrivateBank and Trust Company (the “Lender”) for a revolving line of credit in the total aggregate amount of $35,000.  The maturity dates, as amended, are as follows:

 

·       a revolving loan in the amount of $20,000 (the “Revolving Loan A”), with a maturity date of October 26, 2013; and

·       a revolving loan in the amount of $15,000 (the “Revolving Loan B”), with a maturity date of October 26, 2011.

Table of Contents

 

Under the Agreement, the Lender agreed to issue letters of credit of up to $15,000 under Revolving Loan A.  As of March 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010, total commercial letters of credit outstanding under Revolving Loan A totaled $5,098 and $3,634, respectively.  Other than the commercial letters of credit, there were no borrowings under these two lines of credit during the three months ended March 31, 2011 and for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010.  At March 31, 2011, available borrowing capacity under Revolving Loan A was $14,902 and $15,000 under Revolving Loan B.

 

Any principal amount of each of Revolving Loan A and Revolving Loan B will bear interest at either: (i) LIBOR plus an applicable margin as specified in the Agreement, or (ii) the prime rate announced by the Lender plus an applicable margin as specified in the Agreement. The principal amount of any loan bearing interest at LIBOR plus an applicable margin may not be prepaid without being subject to certain penalties. There is no prepayment penalty for any loan bearing interest at the prime rate announced by the Lender plus an applicable margin.

 

All loans made by the Lender under the Agreement are secured by our assets, including, among others, our cash, inventory, goods, equipment (excluding equipment subject to certain permitted liens) and accounts receivable. Certain of our subsidiaries have executed joint and several guaranties in favor of the Lender for all amounts under the Agreement.  The Agreement and the line of credit facilities contain various restrictive covenants, including, among others, restrictions on investments, capital expenditures, minimum tangible net worth and debt service coverage requirements.  The Company was in compliance with the bank covenants as of March 31, 2011.

 

The Company has a credit facility with a Canadian bank for purposes of issuing commercial letters of credit in Canada, for an amount of up to $10,000 in Canadian dollars. The credit facility has an annual renewal and provides for the issuance of commercial letters of credit for a term of up to five years. The facility 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, 2011 and December 31, 2010, total commercial letters of credit outstanding under this credit facility totaled $4,279 and $4,994 in Canadian dollars, respectively.  As of March 31, 2011, the available borrowing capacity under this credit facility was $5,721 in Canadian dollars.

 

At the time of the JCG acquisition on December 18, 2009, the Company assumed outstanding letters of credit of $5,600 under an amended credit agreement that expired on February 28, 2010. Upon termination of the credit agreement, the Company made a cash deposit as replacement for the letters of credit.

 

Subordinated Promissory Note — Rockford .   In connection with the acquisition of Rockford, the Company executed an unsecured promissory note (the “Rockford Note”) on November 12, 2010 in favor of the sellers of Rockford with an initial principal amount of $16,712.  The principal amount of the Rockford Note was divided into two portions.  Approximately $9,669 of the Rockford Note was designated as “Note A” and approximately $7,043 of the note was designated as “Note B.”  Note B was paid in full on March 10, 2011.

 

Note A is due and payable on October 31, 2013 and bears interest at different rates until maturity, averaging 6.67% over the life of Note A.  During the first 12 months of Note A, it bears interest at a rate equal to 5%.  For months 13 through 24, it bears interest at a rate equal to 7%. Thereafter and until maturity, Note A bears interest at a rate equal to 8%.  Payments of principal and interest are payable monthly in an amount of $269 principal plus interest over 36 months.  At March 31, 2011, a total of $8,595 was outstanding.

 

Note A may be prepaid in whole or in part at any time.  If we complete an equity financing while Note A is outstanding, we have agreed to use 15% of the net proceeds of any such equity financing in excess of $10 million to prepay a portion or all of Note A.  In addition, we have agreed to use 33% of any cash proceeds raised in connection with incurrence of any indebtedness (other than under a bank line of credit or to finance operating expenses, equipment and capital expenditures), to prepay a portion or all of Note A.

 

While any amount is outstanding under Note A, we have agreed to not take certain actions without the prior written consent of the Rockford Note holders’ representative.  We have agreed not to: (i) incur any obligations for seller financing associated with the acquisition of a business without subordinating it to the Rockford Note, (ii) make any payment on outstanding indebtedness that has been subordinated to the Rockford Note, (iii) make any distribution or declare or pay any dividends (except for regular, quarterly dividends), and (iv) consummate any transaction that would require prepayment under the Rockford Note, if we are not permitted to do so by our senior lender and/or surety companies.

 

The sellers have entered into subordination agreements with our senior lender, bonding agency and the holders of the JCG Note, pursuant to which the Rockford Note is subordinated to amounts owed to our senior lender, bonding agencies and the holders of the JCG Note.

 

Subordinated Promissory Note — JCG .   In connection with the acquisition of JCG, the Company executed an unsecured promissory note on December 18, 2009 in favor of the sellers of JCG with an initial principal amount of $53,500. The JCG Note is due and payable on December 15, 2014 and bears interest at differing rates until maturity.  For the first 9 months of the term of the note, the JCG Note bore interest at an annual rate equal to 5%.  For months 10 through 18, the JCG Note bears interest at an annual rate of 7%.  For months 19 until the maturity date, the JCG Note will bear interest at an annual rate of 8%.  Payments of principal and interest will be made on an amortizing basis over 60 months.  The JCG Note is subordinated to amounts owed to our commercial banks for lines of credit and to our bonding agencies.

 

13



Table of Contents

 

The JCG Note may be prepaid in whole or in part at any time.  If we complete an equity financing while the JCG Note is outstanding, we have agreed to use the first $10 million of the net proceeds of any such equity financing, plus 75% of the net proceeds in excess of $10 million, to prepay a portion or all of the JCG Note. In addition, we have agreed to use 33% of any cash proceeds raised in connection with incurrence of any indebtedness (other than under a bank line of credit or to finance operating expenses, equipment and capital expenditures), to prepay a portion or all of the JCG Note.  As long as more than $10,000 is outstanding, we have agreed to not take certain actions without the prior written consent of the JCG Note holders, including, among others, purchase, acquire, redeem or retire any shares of our common stock.

 

Note 12 — Contingent Earnout Liabilities

 

Rockford Earnout Consideration

 

As part of the Rockford acquisition in November 2010, the Company agreed to issue additional cash and common stock to the sellers, contingent upon Rockford meeting certain operating performance targets for certain periods.  The earnout target established for the fourth quarter 2010 was achieved in March 2011. The liability of $4,600 was recorded at fair value as of December 31, 2010. In March 2011, the Company issued 494,095 shares of common stock to the sellers and reduced the liability and increased Stockholders’ Equity.

 

The remaining contingent earnout liabilities related to the acquisition of Rockford consist of the following:

 

2011 Earnout Period

 

If Rockford’s financial performance as measured by income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”), as defined in the purchase agreement, for the fifteen month period from October 1, 2010 through December 31, 2011 is at least $34.0 million, we have agreed to pay $2.3 million in cash and issue an additional number of shares of our common stock equal to $2.3 million divided by the average closing price of our common stock, as reported on NASDAQ, for the 20 business days prior to December 31, 2011 (a total of $4.6 million). Alternatively, if Rockford’s financial performance for the fifteen month period from October 1, 2010 and through December 31, 2011 is at least $38.0 million, we have agreed to pay a cash amount of $3.45 million and issue a number of shares of our common stock equal to $3.45 million divided by the average closing price of our common stock, as reported on NASDAQ, for the 20 business days prior to December 31, 2011 (a total of $6.9 million).

 

2012 Earnout Period

 

If Rockford’s EBITDA financial performance for calendar year 2012 is at least $14.0 million, we have agreed to pay $6.9 million in cash.

 

At December 31, 2010, the estimated fair value of the contingent consideration for the potential earnout liabilities for the Rockford acquisition was $14,391, which included the liability for meeting the fourth quarter 2010 earnout target.  Excluding the fourth quarter 2010 earnout target, the liability at December 31, 2010 was $9,791.  The estimated fair value of the 2011 and 2012 earnout liabilities at March 31, 2011 was $10,088. The $297 change in the fair value was a non-cash charge to “other expense” in the consolidated statement of income for the three month period ended March 31, 2011.

 

JCG Earnout Consideration

 

As part of the JCG acquisition in December 2009, the Company agreed to issue a number of shares of common stock equal to $10.2 million if JCG’s EBITDA, as defined in the purchase agreement, was equal to or greater than $35 million for the year ending December 31, 2010. The earnout contingency was achieved and the liability of $10,200 was recorded as of December 31, 2010. In March 2011, the Company issued 1,095,602 shares of common stock to the sellers and reduced the liability and increased Stockholders’ Equity.

 

Note 13—Related Party Transactions

 

Primoris has entered into various transactions with Stockdale Investment Group, Inc. (“SIGI”).  Brian Pratt, our Chief Executive Officer, President and Chairman of the Board of Directors and our largest stockholder, also holds a majority interest in SIGI and is the chairman and a director of SIGI.  John M. Perisich, our Senior Vice President and General Counsel, is secretary of SIGI.

 

In 2010, the Company entered into a $6.0 million agreement to construct a wastewater facility for Pluris, LLC, a private company in which Brian Pratt holds the majority interest. During the three months ending March 31, 2011, the Company recognized revenues of $1,975. The construction is expected to be completed by December 31, 2011. The transaction was reviewed and approved by the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company.

 

Primoris leases properties located in Bakersfield, Pittsburg and San Dimas, California, and in Pasadena, Texas from SIGI. During the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010, the Company paid $224, and $221, respectively, in lease payments to SIGI for the use of these properties.

 

Primoris leases a property from Roger Newnham, one of our stockholders and a manager of our subsidiary Born Heaters Canada. The property is located in Calgary, Canada. During the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010, Primoris paid $69 and $62, respectively, in lease payments to Mr. Newnham for the use of this property. The term of the lease is through December 31, 2014.

 

As a result of the November 2010 acquisition of Rockford, the Company entered into a lease for property from Lemmie Rockford, one of our stockholders.  The property is located in Toledo, Washington.  During the three months ended March 31, 2011, Primoris paid $23 in lease payments to Mr. Rockford for the use of this property.  The lease expires on January 15, 2015.

Note 14—Income Taxes

 

The effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2011 was 39.03%. The rate differs from the U.S. federal statutory rate of 35% due primarily to federal and state return to provision adjustments, state income taxes and the “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.  The Company recognizes interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions, if any, as an income tax expense.

 

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 tax years 2007 through 2010 remain open to examination by the United States Internal Revenue Service.  The tax years 2006 through 2010 remain open to examination by the other major taxing jurisdictions to which the Company is subject.

 

Note 15—Dividends and Earnings Per Share

 

On November 5, 2010, the Company declared a cash dividend of $0.025 per common share, payable to stockholders of record on December 31, 2010.  The dividend, totaling $1,234 was paid on January 15, 2011.  On March 10, 2011, the Company declared a cash dividend of $0.025 per common share, payable to stockholders of record on March 31, 2011.  The dividend, totaling $1,276 was paid on April 15, 2011.

Introduction

 

Primoris is a holding company of various subsidiaries, which form one of the larger specialty contractors and infrastructure companies in the United States.  Serving diverse end-markets, Primoris provides a wide range of construction, fabrication, maintenance, replacement, water and wastewater, and engineering services to major public utilities, petrochemical companies, energy companies, municipalities, and other customers. With our acquisitions of JCG in December 2009 and Rockford in November 2010, Primoris has doubled its size and the Company’s national footprint now extends from Florida, along the Gulf Coast, through California, into the Pacific Northwest and Canada.

 

We install, replace, repair and rehabilitate natural gas, refined product, water and wastewater pipeline systems, large diameter gas and liquid pipeline facilities, heavy civil projects, earthwork and site development and also construct mechanical facilities and other structures, including power plants, petrochemical facilities, refineries, parking structures, highways, bridges and other environmental construction activities. 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.

 

On November 8, 2010, the Company entered into the Rockford Agreement to acquire privately held Rockford.  Upon completion of the acquisition on November 12, 2010, Rockford became a wholly owned subsidiary.  Based in Hillsboro (Portland), Oregon, Rockford specializes in large diameter natural gas and liquid pipeline projects and related facilities construction.  Rockford’s business adds to the Company’s major underground project bidding and performance capabilities.  Rockford also adds to our California underground capacity and provides a northwest United States location to expand the Company’s geographic presence.

 

We make our press releases, our Annual Reports on Form 10-K, our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, our Current Reports on Form 8-K and all other required filings with the SEC available free of charge through our Internet Web site, as reasonably practical after they are electronically filed with, or furnished to, the SEC. Our principal executive offices are located at 2100 McKinney Avenue, Suite 1500, Dallas, Texas 75201, and our telephone number is (214) 740-5600. Our Web site address is www.prim.com .

Range of Services

 

We provide services in three segments: the East Construction Services segment, the West Construction Services segment and the Engineering segment.

 

East and West Construction Services

 

Both the East Construction Services and the West Construction Services segments specialize 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;

 

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

 

·                    Providing construction of highways and industrial and environmental construction.

 

East Construction Services

 

The East Construction Services segment incorporates the JCG construction business, located primarily in the southeastern United States.  The segment also includes the businesses located in the Gulf Coast region of the United States that were formerly included in the Construction Services segment, including Cardinal Contractors, Inc. and Cardinal Mechanical, L.P.

 

West Construction Services

 

The West Construction Services segment includes the construction services performed in the western United States, primarily in the state of California.  Entities included in West Construction Services are ARB Inc., ARB Structures, Inc. and Stellaris, LLC.  Additionally, the results of the November 12, 2010 acquisition of Rockford, effective on November 1, 2010, are included in the West Construction Services segment.

 

E ngineering

 

The Engineering segment includes the results of Onquest, Inc. and Born Heaters Canada, ULC.  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. The group furnishes turnkey project management with 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 in the energy and oil and gas industries, as well as on municipal water and wastewater customers. Over the past several years, each segment has benefited from demand for more efficient and more environmentally friendly energy and power facilities, local highway and bridge needs and from the 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.

 

We and our customers are operating in a challenging business environment in light of the economic downturn, capital markets that have not yet fully recovered and the potentially adverse impact of potential changes in governmental units spending. We are closely monitoring our customers and the effect that changes in economic and market conditions may have on them. We have experienced reduced spending by our customers throughout 2010, which we attribute to negative economic and market conditions, and we anticipate that these negative conditions will continue to affect demand for our services in the near-term until conditions improve. However, we believe that most of our customers, some of whom are regulated utilities, remain financially stable in general and will be able to continue with their business plans in the long-term without substantial constraints.

 

Seasonality and cyclicality

 

Our results of operations can be subject to quarterly variations. Some of the variation is the result of weather, particularly rain, which can impact our ability to perform construction services. In addition, demand for new projects can be lower during the early part of the year due to clients’ internal budget cycles.  As a result, the Company usually experiences higher revenues and earnings in the third and fourth quarters of the year as compared to the first two quarters.  We are also dependent on large construction projects which tend not to be seasonal but which tend to fluctuate based on general economic conditions.  As a consequence, the financial results for any period may fluctuate from prior periods, and the Company’s financial condition and operating results may vary from quarter-to-quarter.  Results from one quarter may not be indicative of its financial condition or operating results for any other quarter or for an entire year.

 

19



Table of Contents

 

In addition to quarter to quarter fluctuations based on the weather and general economic conditions, activity in the construction  industry can be highly cyclical. Our volume of business may be adversely affected by declines or delays in new projects in various geographic regions in the United States. Project schedules, in particular in connection with larger, longer-term projects, can also create fluctuations in the services provided, which may adversely affect us in a given period. The financial condition of our customers and their access to capital, variations in the margins of projects performed during any particular period, regional, national and global economic and market conditions, timing of acquisitions, the timing and magnitude of acquisition assimilation costs, interest rate fluctuations and other factors may also materially affect our periodic results. Accordingly, our operating results for any particular year may not be indicative of the results that can be expected for any other year.

Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2011 were $359.6 million, an increase of $184.7 million or 105.5%, compared to the same period in 2010.   Rockford, which we acquired in the fourth quarter 2010, contributed $127.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011, which consisted of $126.9 million for the Ruby contract, part of a large project for the construction of a natural gas pipeline from Wyoming to Oregon.  The project is expected to be substantially completed by the end of the third quarter 2011.  Excluding the impact of Rockford, revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2011 increased by $56.9 million, or 32.5%, compared to the same period in 2010. Excluding Rockford, revenues for the two construction segments combined increased by 34.3% from the first quarter of 2010.

 

Gross profit increased by $16.2 million, or 66.0%, for the three months ended March 31, 2011 compared to the same period in 2010.  Rockford’s $11.1 million profit was a primary reason for the increase; however, excluding the impact of Rockford, the gross profit of the combined construction groups increased by $5.0 million.

 

Gross profit as a percent of revenues decreased to 11.3% for the three months ended March 31, 2011, compared to 14.0% in the same period in 2010. The margins were primarily impacted by the 8.7% gross margin percentages recognized for Rockford and lower margins on the start-up of industrial projects in the West Construction Services segment in the first quarter of  2011 compared to the same period in 2010.

%

 

Revenue for the East Construction Services segment increased by $23.8 million, or 22.9%, for the three months ended March 31, 2011 compared to the same period in 2010.  This increase was due to the combination of increased work on heavy civil projects in Louisiana and Texas, increased revenue from infrastructure and maintenance projects and the impact of the purchase of a small rock quarry in Texas.

 

Gross profit for the East Construction Services segment increased $3.4 million, or 35.6%, for the three months ended March 31, 2011, primarily as a result of the increased revenues for the heavy civil and infrastructure and maintenance projects..

 

Gross profit as a percent of revenues increased to 10.2% during the three months ended March 31, 2011 from 9.2% in the prior year quarter, reflecting increased margin percentages realized on heavy civil projects in southern Louisiana during the quarter.

 

West Construction Services Segment

 

Revenue and gross profit for the West Construction Services segment for the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010 were as follows:

Revenue for the West Construction Services segment increased by $160.2 million, or 267.5%, for the three months ended March 31, 2011 compared to the same period in 2010.  Excluding the $127.8 million revenue contribution from Rockford, primarily for the Ruby project, the increase was $32.4 million, or 54.1%.  Revenues for our California underground business increased by $15.8 million, revenues for our California industrial business increased by $10.4 million, with the parking structure business accounting for most of the remainder of the increase compared to the first quarter of 2010.

 

Gross profit for the West Construction Services increased by $12.6 million, or 102.8%, for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  The impact of Rockford on gross profit was $11.1 million.  The remaining increase of $1.5 million was the result of increased gross margins for the underground and structures work which were offset by lower industrial margins at the start of the large power plant projects.

 

Gross profit as a percent of revenues decreased to 11.3% during the three months ended March 31, 2011 from 20.4% in the same period in 2010, reflecting high margins in the first quarter of 2010 primarily as a result of the completion of several projects in the previous year and the lower margins at the start of major construction projects.

Gross profit for the Engineering segment for the three months ended March 31, 2011 increased to $2.8 million from $2.6 million for the same period in 2010, an increase of $0.2 million.  Gross margin as a percent of revenues was 24.7% compared to 24.3% for the same period in 2010.  The increase, both in revenue and margin, was due primarily to the contribution from several small service type projects in our Canadian subsidiary for the three months ended March 31, 2011.

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) increased $6.4 million, or 47.6%, for the three months ended March 31, 2011 compared to the same period in 2010. Of the increased amount, approximately $1.7 million was as a result of the acquisition of Rockford.  In 2011, we determined to account for our gains and losses on the sales of operating equipment as a cost of revenues rather than a component of SG&A since most of the equipment expenses are recorded as cost of revenues.  The impact in the first quarter of 2011 was minor, as we recorded a loss of $0.1 million for the quarter compared to a gain of $1.1 million in the first quarter of 2010,  The remaining change in SG&A expenses of $3.6 million was incurred as follows:  increase of $1.6 million in the West Construction Services segment (excluding Rockford), increase of $1.5 million in the East Construction Services segment and an increase of $.5 million in the Engineering segment. Compared to the same quarter last year, the overall increases were primarily due to an increase for employee compensation and related expenses of $1.1 million, a reduction in absorption of SG&A expenses into projects of $1.5 million and smaller increases in legal expenses, travel expenses and amortization of intangible assets

 

SG&A as a percentage of revenue decreased to 5.5% for the three months ended March 31, 2011, from 7.7% for the same period in 2010 primarily as a result of the significant increase in revenues.   Excluding the impact of Rockford, SG&A as a percentage of revenues was 7.8%.

For the three months ended March 31, 2011, income from non-consolidated joint ventures was $0.8 million, which was primarily from the St.-Bernard Levee Partners joint venture, a construction project near New Orleans, Louisiana.  Income from the St. Bernard joint venture was $1.2 million in the first quarter of 2010.  In the first quarter of 2010, we recognized loss of $0.2 million from a joint venture with an electrical construction company in Northern California.  That joint venture ended after the fourth quarter of 2010.

 

Foreign exchange gains for the three months ended March 31, 2011 and for the same period in 2010 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.

 

Other expense of $0.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010 represents the change in the estimated fair value of the contingent earnout liabilities for Rockford in 2011 and JCG in 2010.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2011, interest expense was $1.4 million, compared to $1.3 million for the same period in 2010.  The increase over the prior period was due primarily to interest payments due on the Rockford subordinated debt and the increase in the rate of the JCG subordinated debt.

Provision for income taxes

 

Our provision for income tax increased $3.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011 to $7.9 million, compared to the same period in 2010.  The tax rate applied in the three months ended March 31, 2011 was 39.03% as compared to 37.1% for the same period in 2010. The current year rate reflects the impact of the Rockford acquisition and the estimated taxes that will be paid in the third quarter of 2011.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Liquidity represents our ability to pay our liabilities when they become due, fund business operations and meet our contractual obligations.  Our primary sources of liquidity are our cash balances at the beginning of each period and our net cash flow.  In addition to cash flow from operations, we have availability under our lines of credit to potentially augment liquidity needs.  In order to maintain sufficient liquidity, we evaluate our working capital requirements on a regular basis.  We may elect to raise additional capital by issuing common stock, convertible notes, term debt or increasing our credit facility as necessary to fund our operations or to fund the acquisition of new businesses.

 

At March 31, 2011, our balance sheet included net cash and investments of $154.4 million, consisting of net cash of $131.4 million, and $23.0 million in short-term investments.  We currently have the following credit facilities:

 

·                   a $20 million credit facility that expires on October 26, 2013, under which we can issue letters of credit for up to $15 million.  At March 31, 2011, we have issued letters of credit of $5.1 million on this facility, resulting in $14.9 million in available borrowing capacity;

·                   a credit facility of $15 million, with the full borrowing amount available at March 31, 2011, which expires on October 26, 2011; 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, 2011, $4.4 million of letters of credit (Canadian dollars) were outstanding, with $5.6 million available under this credit facility for additional letters of credit.

Table of Contents

 

Cash flow provided by operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2011 increased by $31.8 million compared to the same period in 2010 due primarily to the increased operating profit of $10.1 million, increased depreciation and amortization of intangible assets of $3.1 million as a result of the Rockford acquisition, and net cash generated by changes in assets and liabilities of $24.7 million.  This was partially offset by an increase in the provision for income taxes of $3.9 million, and a decrease in non-consolidated entity distributions of $3.3 million, and a reduction of $1.3 million of gain on the sale of equipment.

 

The significant components of the $9.4 million change in assets and liabilities from the December 31, 2010 balance sheet amounts are summarized as follows:

 

·                             a $61.3 million decrease in accounts receivable. At March 31, 2011, accounts receivable represented 22.4% of total assets.  We continue to have an excellent collection history for our receivables and have certain lien rights that can provide additional security for collection;

·                             a $7.2 million decrease in accounts payable;

·                             costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings increased by $8.2 million;

·                             billings in excess of costs and estimated earnings decreased by $36.9 million;

·                             inventory, prepaid expenses and other current assets decreased by $7.3 million;

·                             other long-term liabilities decreased by $2.6 million;

·                             accrued expenses and other current liabilities decreased by $1.6 million; and

·                             a $3.1 million increase in customer retention deposits.

 

The decreases in accounts receivable and billings in excess of costs and estimated earnings are primarily related to the acquisition of Rockford. At December 31, 2010, Rockford accounts receivable were $56.2 million and at March 31, 2011, Rockford receivables were $18.8 million. At December 31, 2010, Rockford billings in excess of costs and estimated earnings were $78.7 million compared to a balance of $55.8 million at March 31, 2011.

 

Investing activities

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2011, we purchased property and equipment for $4.1 million in cash, compared to $2.6 million during the same period in 2010.  These purchases were principally for construction 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 $23.0 million and $24.0 million during the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively, in short term investments, and sold $26.0 million and $25.1 million during the same periods in 2011 and 2010.  Short term investments consist primarily of CDs purchased through the CDARS (Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service) process to provide FDIC backing of the CDs, U.S. Treasury bonds and money market accounts with various financial institutions.

 

Financing activities

 

Financing activities used $13.9 million of cash during the three months ended March 31, 2011. Significant transactions using cash flows from financing activities included:

 

·                   $3.5 million in repayment of long-term debt and capital leases during the three months ended March 31, 2011.

 

·                     $9.9 million in total payments of the subordinated notes related to both the JCG and Rockford acquisitions, which included the March 10, 2011 payment in full of the Rockford Note “B” of $6.7 million.

 

·                   Dividends of $1.2 million were paid to our stockholders during the three months ended March 31, 2011 (representing an annualized dividend rate of $0.10 per share of common stock or $0.025 per share of common stock as of the December 31, 2010 record date and paid on January 15, 2011).

 

·                   $0.8 million was recorded as equity for the issuance of 94,966 shares purchased by our employees under the Primoris Long-Term Retention Plan.

 

Capital requirements

 

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

 

Common stock

 

In March 2011, a total of 1,095,646 shares of common stock were issued to the JCG former members as a result of JCG meeting a defined performance target in 2010.  Additionally, 494,095 shares were issued to Rockford’s former stockholders in March 2011 as a result of Rockford meeting a defined performance target in 2010.  The Rockford purchase agreement provides for additional performance targets for 2011 and 2012 and may provide for the issuance of additional shares.

The Company is authorized to issue 1,000,000 shares of $0.0001 par value preferred stock.  As part of the consideration for the 2009 acquisition of JCG, the Company issued 81,852.78 shares of preferred stock to JCG’s former members.  On April 12, 2010, at a special meeting of the Company’s stockholders, the stockholders approved the conversion of the 81,852.78 shares of preferred stock into 8,185,278 shares of common stock.  There are no shares of preferred stock outstanding at March 31, 2011.

 

As of March 31, 2011, there are 450,000 Unit Purchase Options (“UPO”) outstanding.  Each UPO included the right to purchase a Unit at $8.80 per share, with each Unit consisting of one share of common stock and one warrant.  The Company’s warrants expired in the prior year, on October 2, 2010.  The UPO, which expires on October 2, 2011, allows for a cashless conversion.  With the expiration of the warrants, each UPO allows for the purchase of one share of common stock at $8.80 per share.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the financial statements and also affect the amounts of revenues and expenses reported for each period. These estimates and assumptions must be made because certain information that is used in the preparation of our financial statements cannot be calculated with a high degree of precision from data available, is dependent on future events, or is not capable of being readily calculated based on generally accepted methodologies. Often, these estimates are particularly difficult to determine and we must exercise significant judgment. Estimates may be used in our assessments of revenue recognition under percentage-of-completion accounting, the allowance for doubtful accounts, useful lives of property and equipment, fair value assumptions in analyzing goodwill and long-lived asset impairments, self-insured claims liabilities and deferred income taxes.  Actual results could differ from those that result from using the estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

Our critical accounting policies, as described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010, relate to fixed price contracts, revenue recognition, income taxes, goodwill, long-lived assets and reserve for uninsured risks.  There have been no material changes to our critical accounting policies since December 31, 2010.

 

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 time-and-equipment, time-and-materials and cost-plus contracts in the calculation of backlog.

 

Our 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.

 

As of March 31, 2011, our total backlog was $1.06 billion representing an increase of $161.5 million, or 18.0%, from $895.8 million as of December 31, 2010.  No substantial backlog was obtained due to the Rockford acquisition on November 12, 2010 because the current work in progress consists primarily of one major reimbursable cost plus margin pipeline project.  We expect that approximately 52% of the total backlog at March 31, 2011 will be recognized as revenue during 2011, with $334 million expected for the East Construction Services segment, $183 million for the West Construction Services segment and $29 million for the Engineering segment.

Backlog should not be considered a comprehensive indicator of future revenues, as a significant portion of our revenues are derived from projects that are not part of a backlog calculation.  During the three months ended March 31, 2011, approximately $161.9 million of revenue (which included $127.8 million attributable to the Rockford acquisition) was generated by projects completed under time-and-equipment, time-and-materials and cost-reimbursable-plus-fee contracts.

 

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, long-term debt and accounts payable and accrued liabilities shown in the consolidated balance sheets approximate fair value at March 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010 due to the generally short maturities of these items. At March 31, 2011, we invested primarily in short-term dollar denominated bank deposits, money market accounts and other four to six month certificates of deposits (“CDs”) through the CDARS (Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service) process to provide FDIC backing of the CDs. We expect to hold our investments to maturity.

 

At March 31, 2011, all of our long-term debt was under fixed interest rates.

 

At March 31, 2011, we had no derivative financial instrument for the purpose of hedging future currency exchange rates in Canadian dollars. We may hedge foreign currency risks in the future in those situations where we believe such transactions are prudent.

 

Item 4.  Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

As of March 31, 2011, we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our chief executive officer (“CEO”) and chief financial officer (“CFO”), of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our “disclosure controls and procedures”, as such term is defined under Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e).

 

Based on this evaluation, our CEO and CFO concluded that, at March 31, 2011, the disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the SEC, and accumulated and communicated to our management, including our CEO and CFO, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, our management recognized that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives and in reaching a reasonable level of assurance our management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures.  The Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable assurance of achieving their stated objectives.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

During the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2011, there were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Part II. Other Information

 

Item 1.  Legal Proceedings

 

From time to time, we are 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, our 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.

 

In addition to the other information set forth in this Report, you should carefully consider the factors discussed in the section entitled “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010, which to our knowledge have not materially changed. Those risks, which could materially affect our business, financial condition or future results, are not the only risks we face. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem to be immaterial also may materially adversely affect our business, financial condition and/or operating results.

 

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

 

During the fourth quarter 2010, we completed the acquisition of Rockford for which a portion of the consideration consisted of potential shares of unregistered stock contingent on meeting certain operating targets for 2010, 2011 and 2012.  In March 2011, a total of 494,095 shares were issued to the Rockford’s former stockholders as a result of Rockford meeting a defined performance target in 2010.

 

Similarly, as part of the JCG acquisition in December 2009, a portion of the consideration consisted of potential earnout shares, and in March 2011, a total of 1,095,646 shares of common stock were issued to the JCG sellers as a result of JCG meeting a defined performance target in 2010.

I, Brian Pratt, certify that:

 

1.                                        I have reviewed this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2011 of Primoris Services Corporation;

 

2.                                        Based on my knowledge, this Quarterly Report does not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact necessary to make the statements made, in light of the circumstances under which such statements were made, not misleading with respect to the period covered by this Quarterly Report;

 

3.                                        Based on my knowledge, the financial statements, and other financial information included in this Quarterly Report, fairly present in all material respects the financial condition, results of operations and cash flows of the registrant as of, and for, the periods presented in this Quarterly Report;

 

4.                                        The registrant’s other certifying officer and I are responsible for establishing and maintaining disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)) and internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f)) for the registrant and have:

 

(a)                                   Designed such disclosure controls and procedures, or caused such disclosure controls and procedures to be designed under our supervision, to ensure that material information relating to the registrant, including its consolidated subsidiaries, is made known to us by others within those entities, particularly during the period in which this Quarterly Report is being prepared;

 

(b)                                  Designed such internal control over financial reporting, or caused such internal control over financial reporting to be designed under our supervision, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles;

 

(c)                                   Evaluated the effectiveness of the registrant’s disclosure controls and procedures and presented in this Quarterly Report our conclusions about the effectiveness of the disclosure controls and procedures, as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report based on such evaluation; and

 

(d)                                  Disclosed in this Quarterly Report any change in the registrant’s internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the registrant’s most recent fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the registrant’s internal control over financial reporting; and

 

5.                                        The registrant’s other certifying officer and I have disclosed, based on our most recent evaluation of internal control over financial reporting, to the registrant’s auditors and the audit committee of the registrant’s board of directors (or persons performing the equivalent functions):

 

(a)                                   All significant deficiencies and material weaknesses in the design or operation of internal control over financial reporting which are reasonably likely to adversely affect the registrant’s ability to record, process, summarize and report financial information; and

 

(b)                                  Any fraud, whether or not material, that involves management or other employees who have a significant role in the registrant’s internal control over financial reporting.
