Demand for our water, mining, and energy services resulted in strong net revenue and earnings, which enabled us to exceed guidance. Our front-end segment margins improved notably due to seasonally higher workloads and staff productivity. Looking forward over the next several quarters, we foresee stability in our government markets and strong growth in our commercial and international markets, bolstered by contributions from recent acquisitions. International clients represent our fastest-growing sector. We expect international work to become the largest revenue contributor within the next several quarters and grow to represent more than 40% of our business.”
