"Our performance in the fourth quarter capped a strong year which exceeded our original expectations," said Steven W.

Segment operating income is revenue less cost of goods sold and operating expenses, excluding general corporate expenses, restructuring expenses, amortization of intangibles, amortization of acquisition-related inventory step-up charges and acquisition costs.  Non-GAAP segment operating income also excludes the impact of stock-based compensation expense.

Engineering and Construction (E&C)

Fourth quarter 2011 E&C revenue was $238.7 million, up 30 percent as compared to the fourth quarter of 2010.  This growth was driven by strong sales of heavy and highway solutions, double-digit growth in survey product sales and the Tekla acquisition.

Fourth quarter operating income in E&C was $36.6 million, or 15.3 percent of revenue as compared to $21.6 million, or 11.8 percent of revenue in the fourth quarter of 2010.  Non-GAAP operating income was $39.4 million, or 16.5 percent of revenue, as compared to $24.0 million, or 13.1 percent of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2010.  The improvement in operating income was due to operating leverage as a result of increased revenue.

Fiscal 2011 E&C revenue was $906.5 million, up 26 percent as compared to fiscal 2010, driven primarily by strong sales across product lines and, to a lesser extent, the Tekla acquisition.

Field Solutions

Fourth quarter 2011 Field Solutions revenue was $95.5 million, up 28 percent as compared to the fourth quarter of 2010 due to strong sales of agriculture and geographic information system (GIS) products and the acquisition of Tekla.

Fourth quarter 2011 Field Solutions operating income was $34.1 million, or 35.7 percent of revenue, as compared to $27.1 million, or 36.1 percent of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2010.  Non-GAAP operating income was $34.7 million , or 36.3 percent of revenue, as compared to $27.6 million , or 36.9 percent of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2010.  Without the impact of the Tekla acquisition, Field Solutions operating margins were up for the quarter.
