Read MoreHide Full Article

Tetra Tech, Inc. (TTEK - Free Report) yesterday communicated that it secured a $36-million contract from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (“USACE”). The contract is applicable for 6 years.

Notably, the contract is the third deal awarded to the company by the USACE since the beginning of calendar 2021.

Inside the Headlines

Per the $36-million multiple-award contract, Tetra Tech’s prime responsibility will be the assessment and management of flood risks. Also, the company’s biologists, engineers and planners will have to work for the reduction of coastal erosion and the restoration of ecosystems.

To be more specific, its professionals will carry out studies for site characterization and biological surveys. Also, they will engage in the development of engineering designs.

We believe that the aforementioned contract will help Tetra Tech strengthen its existing business with the federal agency.

Order wins, especially from the U.S. federal government agencies or related institutions, are likely to benefit the company in the quarters ahead. At the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2021 (ended Dec 27, 2020), the company had a solid backlog of $3,188.1 million.

Of several contracts, Tetra Tech secured a $49-million environmental services contract from USACE in April 2021. In the same month, the company received a $12-million contract, related to energy sustainability activities, from the U.S. Agency for International Development (“USAID”).

For fiscal 2021 (ending September 2021), Tetra Tech anticipates net revenues from the U.S. federal clients to gain from enhanced analytics used in the water and environmental programs. It predicts net revenues of $2.40-$2.55 billion for the year and adjusted earnings of $3.45-$3.60 per share.
