Operating results for the quarter were negatively impacted by $3.6 million of discrete tax adjustments related to stock-based compensation and a $2.7 million loss on the sale of certain auction rate securities which, together, contributed non-recurring charges in the quarter of $0.11 per share.

Revenues from construction operations were $912.5 million for the first quarter of 2012, as compared to $615.3 million for the first quarter of 2011.

Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expected the company to report earnings of $0.42 per share on revenues of $1.10 billion for the quarter. Analysts' estimates typically exclude special items.
