MANAGEMENT COMMENTARY
Robert Lewey, President, stated, “Across all levels of IES, our operating philosophy has taken hold and is producing improved results. Our holding company approach provides capital and support for our operating segments to continue to strengthen their performance and capabilities. We believe this contributed to our double digit organic revenue growth in the quarter. Notably, our Communications segment experienced revenue growth of 41% from the same quarter last year. While the start-up costs associated with this additional revenue have negatively impacted Communications’ operating margins in the near term, we believe that investing in this type of organic expansion will lead to enhanced long-term profitability as we seek to grow with our customers and become their national service provider of choice.”
Tracy McLauchlin, Chief Financial Officer, added, “Our financial position remains healthy as demonstrated and highlighted by our continued discipline with regard to working capital, strong cash generation and the improved terms under our credit facility amendment, which we announced last week. Additionally, recent acquisitions are performing at or above expectations.”

SECOND QUARTER UNUSUAL ITEMS
Results of operations from Calumet Armature & Electric, which the Company acquired on October 30, 2015, have outperformed forecasted profitability measures used in the original valuation of the contingent consideration agreement. To reflect this increase in the fair value of the contingent consideration liability resulting from increased profitability, the Company recorded additional contingent consideration expense of $0.3 million during the three months ended March 31, 2016.
During the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company committed to a plan to sell substantially all of the operating assets of HK Engine Components, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary operating in the Infrastructure Solutions segment. In connection with the sale, the Company wrote down the assets to the expected sale price, and recognized a loss of $0.8 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2016. We completed the sale to a third party in April, 2016.

STOCK BUYBACK PLAN
The Company’s Board of Directors has authorized and previously announced a stock repurchase program for purchasing up to 1.5 million shares of our common stock from time to time. The Company had 1,056,598 shares remaining under its stock repurchase authorization at March 31, 2016. We made no repurchases during the three months ended March 31, 2016.

NET OPERATING LOSS CARRYFORWARDS (NOLs)
The Company estimates that it had available net operating loss carryforwards for U.S. federal income tax purposes of approximately $439 million at September 30, 2015. The Company's common stock is subject to a Rights Plan dated January 28, 2013 intended to assist in limiting the number of 5% or more owners, and thus reduce the risk of a possible “change of ownership” under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code. Any such “change of ownership” under these rules would limit or eliminate the ability of the Company to use its existing NOLs for federal income tax purposes. There is no guarantee, however, that the Rights Plan will achieve the objective of preserving the value or realization of the NOLs.

For further details on the Company’s financial results, please refer to the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2015 and quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2016, to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission by May 9, 2016, and any amendments thereto.
