Fiscal Year 2018 Financial Performance Review

Revenue, operating cash flow and free cash flow increased in fiscal year 2018. However, profitability decreased primarily due to execution challenges on a handful of projects in the Construction Services segment and a timing related impact from a planned AECOM Capital transaction that did not close as expected prior to year end, which resulted in stock price underperformance.

Importantly, we had many successes in fiscal year 2018 that built a foundation for continued growth, including record wins and backlog, which support our expectations for double-digit adjusted EBITDA growth in fiscal year 2019. Winning work and increasing the value of our backlog of future work, including a favorable mix shift to higher-margin segments, are critical elements towards achieving our five-year financial targets and stockholder value creation.

Delivered record revenue of $20.2 billion, an increase of 11%


Wins increased 23% to a record $28.4 billion


Backlog at the end of fiscal year 2018 reached a new high of $54 billion


GAAP EPS declined from $2.13 in FY'17 to $0.84 in FY'18 and adjusted EPS* decreased by 9%
