Your line is open. Your line is open. And then my last question is just kind of a technical thing, but you kind of alluded to this, Troy. AECOM Q2 2020 Earnings Call Transcript businesswire. There is just a natural kind of unwind of working capital in the second half of the year based on increased activity. So it's a combination of the things that we've been talking about consistently for the last few quarters, which is improving our real estate profile, taking advantage of our design centers and our shared service centers. Welcome, everyone. We are using non-GAAP financial measures in our presentation. Strength was broad-based and included a greater than one book-to-burn ratio in both segments, led by several large multiyear wins in the Americas. These investments have enabled a relatively seamless transition to remote working, and our ever-expanding digital solutions are deepening our client engagement as well. How does that play through? Michael Feniger with Bank of America. And if we take just the low end of your ranges this year, the $100 million of free cash flow and the $700 million of EBITDA, let's say you don't grow EBITDA next year and you hold the line at $700 million. I appreciate it. And then maybe you can drill down a little bit more in your historic work you've done in New York City. This includes a goal of achieving a 20% reduction in emissions by 2025 as well as a 10% reduction in emissions across our supply chain. Okay. Contents: Prepared Remarks. Good morning and nice quarter. Echoing Mike's sentiments, we are really proud of the organization's response to the challenges presented by COVID-19. Now it's about 13% of our year-to-date NSR and about 1/3 of our backlog. And kind of what does that tell us to expect elsewhere in the world as we restart? So we've been active in doing that. You saw our backlog up double digit to $42 billion in the quarter. Please go ahead. And we're just going to be working through this and make sure that we gain more confidence about what's going on in the marketplace before we start trading off liquidity for repurchases. And then just a quick follow-up on the state and local budget situation. The construction management business, first of all, it's more diversified today than it's ever been. And that's light years ahead of anything in the market. And we just continue to proceed on the path, and we expect margins to improve over the course of the year and even beyond this year into the future. Digital tools like Autodesk and Bentley for design purposes, digital libraries, design anomaly detectors and other tools reside in the cloud, which made it much easier for our employees to work. And that is again just due to the activities of people being focused on collections with their clients. AECOM (ACM) CEO Troy Rudd on Q4 2020 Results - Earnings Call Transcript 3:18PM ET 11/16/2020 Seeking Alpha. And so we see 75% of the earnings in 2021 converting to unlevered free cash flow for use in the business. I'll jump in and take that. Importantly, as Mike noted, we are also successfully mitigating the headwind from 10 lost workdays in Mainland China, and we are seeing market conditions begin to normalize. Your next question comes from the line of Michael Feniger with Bank of America. But we have modeled it, of course, as we do a lot of modeling these days. Great. We've certainly transformed our balance sheet after the sale of the Management Services business. That will mean that you only have maybe a couple of hundred million dollars of net debt, plus you have a U.S. Virgin Islands big receivable that's getting paid, albeit slowly that's on there. Third, most of our work has continued unabated. So that's really important. But we're not concerned about the next couple of quarters here. During the same period in the prior year, the firm earned $0.79 earnings per share. Okay. We are actively negotiating with a potential buyer for our share of the San Onofre nuclear decommissioning project, which would result in a substantial milestone in our derisking strategy.

Good morning, and welcome to AECOM Fourth Quarter 2018 Earnings Conference Call. And to date, we've already been working with clients, utilizing these technologies and are now selling them to numerous federal, state and local as well as international government and private sector clients. So maybe, Randy, you could give us a little overview on what we've done on the IT side. Just trying to get comfortable on the second half ramp, and you guys had mentioned there would be some tailwinds there. With that, operator, we're now ready for questions. And half of our state and local spending in the U.S. comes from five states and California, New York, Texas the real big ones. First, following the completion of the MS sale in January, we terminated the receivable sales program associated with that business, which resulted in a $180 million impact to cash flow. It's all being done in a collaborative way. As you know in that space, it's rare that once you get started with a construction project, it's very, very rare that it stops, the reason being is we've got financing in place that requires you to finish it. AECOM (ACM) Q3 2019 Earnings Call Transcript. Okay. Yes. And then along came the pandemic, and the Board asked and I agreed to stay on and lead us through the crisis and making a rapid change during the crisis was not a good idea. I mean it's amazing how much money has been spent by Congress already for this crisis. This creates greater flexibility to manage our capital structure going forward. And our future is built upon improvement in productivity and efficiency in the business.

And liquidity is highly valued right now, as Troy mentioned earlier. We will continue to prioritize maintaining excess liquidity and reiterate our long-term net leverage target range of two to 2.5 times. Yes, yes. In addition, we expect to benefit from tax incentives and certain elements of government stimulus programs across the globe, including advanced billing for essential contractors, retention credits and payroll tax deferrals. If you went back six years ago, our commercial and residential real estate was about 80% of our business. As a result, backlog increased by 14% to a new all-time high of $42 billion, providing substantial visibility against an increasingly dynamic macroeconomic backdrop. I should note that excluding the impact of elevated levels of storm recovery work from the prior year, organic NSR in our design business increased by 2%. Edited Transcript of ACM earnings conference call or presentation 5-May-20 4:00pm GMT fool. As we said, we currently have a hiring freeze in place. As a group, sell-side analysts predict that AECOM will post 2.6 earnings per share for the current fiscal year. Good morning guys, hope you're well. I'm just curious whether there's been a reassessment on the potential for those programs, whether some of those actions can be accelerated or expanded and just to what extent a weaker macro backdrop extends the time line to achieve the financial targets you outlined. Feb 07, 2020 @ 19:40. So just curious, what is the status of your 2021 targets? AECOM had a positive return on equity of 9.13% and a negative net margin of 1.41%. So even as there might be some project deferrals or as we can ramp up to take on certain types of projects to try and support the change that is certainly coming over the next month, it gives us the confidence that even in a dynamic environment, the agility or the adaptability of our business allows us and gives us confidence to be able to work through and achieve our guidance. The company earned $3.57 billion during the quarter, compared to the consensus estimate of $3.34 billion. Look, I think I don't believe at this point in time, you can be overly conservative in terms of liquidity. Thanks, good morning guys. Yes. And then there's a number of other programs within Australia and Canada and the U.K. that will provide deferral of expenses or payment of certain things like taxes that provide a tailwind. In most cases, these services can be delivered uninterrupted while working remotely, supported by our long-running investments in technology and innovation. Thank you for taking my questions. Prepared Remarks: Operator. I'll take the first part of the question. But I certainly don't want to leave anyone with the impression that's we believe that the subsequent year will look like. Is that going to prove any competitive advantage for you guys as you move forward as the customer base I'm thinking more on the public side but maybe even private as well, accelerate and adapt to the changes that we're seeing? This allows us to operate with a high degree of certainty against a rapidly evolving landscape. Actual results may differ significantly from those projected in today's forward-looking statements due to various risks and uncertainties, including the risks described in our periodic reports filed with the SEC. Your line is open. Clearly, in this environment where people are concerned about delay in payment, we have a highly engaged group of people here that are focused on making sure that they're on top of that. This includes a more than $700 billion infrastructure investment program in the U.K., along with approximately $100 billion of stimulus funding in Australia and Hong Kong. Edited Transcript of ACM earnings conference call or presentation 5-May-20 4:00pm GMT fool. Hi. So again, as Mike pointed out a little earlier, we spend about $400 million a year on real estate. Beginning in February, we built robust mitigation plans to assess different potential virus durations and impacts, put in place a freeze on new hiring and discretionary spending and instituted a global travel freeze. These reductions, when achieved, would be equivalent to eliminating the environmental impact of burning nearly 40 million pounds of coal every year. How do you think about that versus the hope for something over the next few months? Logo of jester cap with thought bubble. In our Americas and EMEA regions, 90% of our people are working remotely. There were a few factors that I want to specifically address.

Just to pick up on that last bit of discussion about 2021, I fully recognize that most companies have pulled their 2020 guidance, let alone have anything out there for 2021. They're looking out 10, 20 years what they're going to need at JFK, for instance. Okay. And we're expecting that stimulus dollars in Hong Kong will give us even more momentum there. I will then review impacts from and our response to COVID-19. First question for me is, you guys came into this crisis with a focus on cost and returns. Obviously, 70% to 75% of the business is New York and L.A., as well as you have a big focus on sports. First and foremost, we are in a fortunate position with excess liquidity at a time when liquidity is scarce. More. That's going to be at this point, I'd say it's less than a percentage point of our entire NSR.
