|AECOM completes withdrawal of expatriate employees from Libya; Fiscal Year 2011 guidance remains unchanged|
LOS ANGELES, Mar 01, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --
AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE: ACM), a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for government and commercial clients around the world, announced today that it has completed the safe withdrawal of its expatriate employees and their families from Libya.
"The safety and security of our staff is paramount to AECOM, and we are grateful for the safe withdrawal of our expatriate personnel," said John M. Dionisio, AECOM president and chief executive officer.
Since 2008, AECOM has been the program manager for the Libya Housing and Infrastructure Board's program to modernize the country's infrastructure. Due to the current uncertainty in Libya, the company cannot determine when or if this project will continue.
"We currently estimate that this business disruption will result in a reduction of EPS of $.08 in the second quarter of fiscal year 2011, primarily due to demobilization, shutdown, and operating impacts. However, our full-year 2011 guidance range remains unchanged at $2.25 to $2.35, due to continued strength in the remainder of our business," said Michael S. Burke, AECOM executive vice president and chief financial officer. "As a global company with operations in over 100 countries around the world, our diversified business model reduces our exposure to any one geography or single project."
