THE GOLDFIELD CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
Note 1 – Organization and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Overview
The Goldfield Corporation (the “Company”) was incorporated in Wyoming in 1906 and subsequently reincorporated in Delaware in 1968. The Company’s principal line of business is electrical construction. The principal market for the Company’s electrical construction operation is electric utilities throughout much of the United States.
Basis of Financial Statement Presentation
In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements include all adjustments necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position, results of operations, and changes in cash flows for the interim periods reported. These adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. All financial statements presented herein are unaudited with the exception of the consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2012, which was derived from the audited consolidated financial statements. The results of operations for the interim periods shown in this report are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the fiscal year. These statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012.
Allowance for Doubtful Accounts
The allowance for doubtful accounts is the Company’s best estimate of the amount of probable credit losses in the Company’s existing accounts receivable. The Company determines the allowance based on customer specific information and historical write-off experience. The Company reviews its allowance for doubtful accounts quarterly. Account balances are charged off against the allowance after all means of collection have been exhausted and the potential for recovery is considered remote. Any increase in the allowance account has a corresponding negative effect on the results of operations. Based on its review, as of September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, management determined it was not necessary to record an allowance for doubtful accounts due to the majority of accounts receivable being generated by electrical utility customers who the Company considers creditworthy based on timely collection history and other considerations.
Use of Estimates
Management of the Company has made a number of estimates and assumptions relating to the reporting of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities to prepare these financial statements in conformity with U. S. generally accepted accounting principles. Actual results may differ from those estimates. Management considers the most significant estimates in preparing these financial statements to be the estimated cost to complete electrical construction contracts in progress, the adequacy of the accrued remediation costs, and the realizability of deferred tax assets.
Financial Instruments - Fair Value
The Company’s financial instruments include cash and cash equivalents, accounts and notes receivable, restricted cash collateral deposited with insurance carriers, cash surrender value of life insurance policies, accounts payable, notes payable, and other current liabilities.
Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. The fair value guidance establishes a valuation hierarchy, which requires maximizing the use of observable inputs when measuring fair value.
The three levels of inputs that may be used are:
Level 1 - Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2 - Observable market based inputs or other observable inputs.
Level 3 - Significant unobservable inputs that cannot be corroborated by observable market data. These values are generally determined using valuation models incorporating management’s estimates of market participant assumptions.
Fair values of financial instruments are estimated through the use of public market prices, quotes from financial institutions, and other available information. Management considers the carrying amounts reported in the consolidated balance sheets for cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable and accrued billings, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, to approximate fair value due to the immediate or short-term maturity of these financial instruments. The fair value of notes receivable is considered by management to approximate carrying value based on their interest rates and terms, maturities, collateral, and current status of the receivables. The fair value of notes payable is considered by management to approximate carrying value

Table of Contents

due in part to the short term maturity of these borrowings. The Company’s long-term notes payable are also estimated by management to approximate carrying value since the interest rates prescribed by Branch Banking and Trust (the “Bank”) are variable market interest rates and are adjusted periodically. The Company has determined the fair value of its fixed rate long-term installment notes payable to be $5.6 million using an interest rate of 2.69% (Level 2 input), which is the Company's current interest rate on borrowings. Restricted cash is considered by management to approximate fair value due to the nature of the asset held in a secured interest bearing bank account. The carrying value of cash surrender value of life insurance is also considered by management to approximate fair value as the carrying value is based on the current settlement value under the contract, as provided by the carrier.
Restricted Cash
The Company’s restricted cash includes cash deposited in a secured interest bearing bank account, as required by the Collateral Trust Agreement in connection with the Company’s workers’ compensation insurance policies, as described in note 10.
Segment Reporting
The Company operates as a single reportable segment under ASC 280-10-50, Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information.
Reclassifications
Certain amounts previously reflected in the prior year statement of cash flows have been reclassified to conform to the Company’s 2013 presentation. Operating activities on the statement of cash flows included amounts under contract loss accruals, which are now reported within accounts payable and accrued liabilities. This reclassification had no effect on the previously reported total cash flows from operating activities.
Note 2 – Inventory
Construction inventory, which consists of specifically identified electrical construction materials, is stated at the lower of cost or market.
Real estate inventory, which consists of residential properties, is carried at the lower of cost or estimated fair value. In accordance with ASC Topic 360-10, Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-lived Assets, real estate inventory is reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable. If the carrying amount or basis is not expected to be recovered, impairment losses are recorded and the related assets are adjusted to their estimated fair value. The fair value of an asset is the amount at which that asset could be bought or sold in a current transaction between willing parties, that is, other than in a forced or liquidation sale. The Company also complies with ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurement, which defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. The Company did not record an impairment on its real estate inventory for either of the three or nine month periods ended September 30, 2013 or 2012.
Note 3 – Land and Land Development Costs
The costs of a land purchase and any development expenses up to the initial construction phase of any new residential property development project are recorded under the asset “land and land development costs.” Once construction commences, the costs of construction are recorded under the asset “residential properties under construction.” The assets “land and land development costs” and “residential properties under construction” relating to specific projects are recorded as current assets when the estimated project completion date is less than one year from the date of the consolidated financial statements, or as non-current assets when the estimated project completion date is more than one year from the date of the consolidated financial statements.
As of September 30, 2013, the Company held eight land properties purchased for future residential development. These properties were recorded at their carrying value of $1.5 million, as land within the non-current assets section of our balance sheet. This compared to eight land properties recorded at their carrying value of $1.0 million as of December 31, 2012. The Company did not record an impairment to its land carrying value for either of the three or nine month periods ended September 30, 2013 or 2012.

As of September 30, 2013, the Company had a loan agreement and a series of related ancillary agreements with Branch Banking and Trust Company ( the “Bank”) providing for a revolving line of credit loan for a maximum principal amount of $5.0 million, to be used as a “Working Capital Loan.” The obligations of the Company pursuant to the Working Capital Loan included the grant of a security interest by Southeast Power Corporation (“Southeast Power”) in all now owned and hereafter acquired and wherever located personal property as follows: (i) machinery and equipment, including all accessions thereto, all manufacturers’ warranties, parts and tools therefore; (ii) all vehicles owned by Southeast Power; and (iii) all proceeds (cash and non-cash) and products of the foregoing. Interest is payable monthly at an annual rate equal to one month LIBOR plus two and one-half percent, (2.69% and 2.75% as of September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively), which will be adjusted monthly and subject to a maximum rate of 24.00% and which is due and payable on January 16, 2014. In addition, the rate of interest added to the one month LIBOR will increase from 2.50% to 2.90% in the event that the Debt to Tangible Net Worth ratio exceeds 1.60:1.00. The Debt to Tangible Net Worth was 1.21:1.00 as of September 30, 2013. As of September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, there were no borrowings outstanding under the Working Capital Loan.
As of September 30, 2013, the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Southeast Power, and the Bank, were parties to a $6.94 million loan agreement and related ancillary agreements (the “$6.94 Million Equipment Loan”). The obligations of Southeast Power pursuant to the $6.94 Million Equipment Loan Agreement and the Promissory Note are secured by the grant of a continuing security interest in all now owned and hereafter acquired and wherever located personal property of Southeast Power as follows: (i) machinery and equipment, including all accessions thereto, all manufacturers’ warranties, parts and tools therefore; (ii) all vehicles; and (iii) all proceeds (cash and non-cash) and products of the foregoing. The $6.94 Million Equipment Loan will mature, and all amounts will be due and payable to the Bank in full on February 22, 2016. Southeast Power must make monthly payments of principal and interest to the Bank in equal monthly payments of $82,619 plus accrued interest, with one final payment of all remaining principal and accrued interest due on February 22, 2016.

The Company’s debt arrangements contain various financial and other covenants including, but not limited to: minimum tangible net worth, outside debt limitation, and maximum debt to tangible net worth ratio. Other loan covenants prohibit, among other things, incurring additional indebtedness, issuing loans to other entities in excess of a certain amount, and entering into a merger or consolidation. The loans also have cross-default provisions whereby any default under any loans of the Company (or its subsidiaries) with the Bank, will constitute a default under all of the other loans of the Company (and its subsidiaries) with the Bank.
Note 5 – Discontinued Operations
Commitments and Contingencies Related to Discontinued Operations
Through certain of our subsidiaries and predecessor companies, the Company was previously engaged in mining activities and ended all such activities in December 2002.
In June 2013, the Company received an inquiry from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (the “EPA”) with respect to a previously owned mining property, the Sierra Zinc Site located in Stevens County, Washington (the “Site”). The Company has commenced investigating the historic operations that occurred, as well as the nature and scope of environmental conditions at the Site.
The preliminary information indicates that the Company owned the Site from 1948 to 1962, and sold the Site over fifty (50) years ago. A preliminary examination of the Site by the Company and the EPA, indicates that the Site includes a stable tailings impoundment that was not previously reclaimed. A preliminary analysis was completed by the Company's environmental engineering consultants. Based on their findings, the Company anticipates that while the tailings impoundment has remained stable since operations ceased at the Site, it will likely be necessary to reclaim and cover the tailings impoundment with clean material.
Although the Company and the EPA have not yet determined the precise response action required, or the timing of such action, the Company has reasonably estimated the amounts related to the probable action in accordance with ASC Topic 450-20, Loss Contingencies, and has established a contingency provision within Discontinued Operations of $1.2 million as of September 30, 2013, for this matter. The EPA has not provided additional information or response regarding the preliminary examination it performed with the Company. Accordingly, none of the following elements have been specifically determined by the Company as of September 30, 2013: the response action required, the date or range of dates to perform such response action, or the method of compliance with such response action to be required of the Company. The remaining balance of the estimated contingency provision accrued by the Company as of September 30, 2013 was $1.1 million and represents the estimated costs of the probable response action, as provided by the Company's environmental engineering consultants, as well as the anticipated legal and professional fees related to the response action. The total actual costs to be incurred at the Site in future periods may vary from this estimate, given inherent uncertainties in evaluating environmental costs.
As of September 30, 2013, the Company incurred actual investigation and professional service costs of $71,000, most of which we anticipate will be reimbursed by the insurers. The accrual will be reviewed periodically based upon facts and circumstances available at the time, which could result, and most likely will result, in changes to this amount.
The Company believes that the costs of this response action may be covered, in whole or in part, by insurance. The Company has advised the same insurers who paid a significant portion of the costs in connection with an EPA action in 2003, involving the Anderson-Calhoun Mine, which provided the ore milled at the Site. The insurers have accepted the defense of the claims relating to the Site, subject to certain reservation of rights as to coverage. The insurers have jointly engaged new environmental defense counsel to defend the Company with respect to the Site. Currently the Company cannot determine a reasonable estimate, or even a range of an estimate, of the insurance recoveries, if any, or when such recoveries may be paid by the insurers.

The Company's effective tax rate related to discontinued operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was (37.6)%. The effective tax rate differs from the federal statutory rate of 34% primarily due to state income taxes. There were no discontinued operations for the three months ended September 30, 2013, or for either of the three or nine month periods ended September 30, 2012.
Note 6 – Commitments and Contingencies
In certain circumstances, the Company is required to provide performance bonds to secure its contractual commitments. Management is not aware of any performance bonds issued for the Company that have ever been called by a customer. As of September 30, 2013, outstanding performance bonds issued on behalf of the Company’s electrical construction subsidiary amounted to approximately $125.7 million.
Note 7 – Income Per Share of Common Stock
Basic income per common share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common stock shares outstanding during the period. Diluted income per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if common stock equivalents, such as stock options outstanding, were exercised into common stock that subsequently shared in the earnings of the Company.
As of September 30, 2013 and 2012, the Company had no common stock equivalents. The computation of the weighted average number of common stock shares outstanding excludes 2,362,418 shares of treasury stock for each of the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2013 and 2012.
Note 8 – Income Taxes
As of September 30, 2013, the Company had alternative minimum tax (“AMT”) credit carryforwards of approximately $71,000 available to reduce future federal income taxes over an indefinite period and $1.1 million of accrued remediation costs to be recognized in the future.
The carrying amounts of deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance, if based on the available evidence, it is more likely than not such assets will not be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the periods in which the deferred tax assets are expected to be recovered or settled. In the assessment for a valuation allowance, appropriate consideration is given to all positive and negative evidence related to the realization of the deferred tax assets. This assessment considers, among other matters, the nature, frequency and severity of current and cumulative losses, forecasts of future profitability, the duration of statutory carryforward periods, experience with loss carryforwards expiring unused, and tax planning alternatives. If the Company determines it will not be able to realize all or part of the deferred tax assets, a valuation allowance would be recorded to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount that is more likely than not to be realized.
Based on assumptions with respect to forecasts of future taxable income and tax planning, among others, the Company anticipates being able to generate sufficient taxable income to utilize the deferred tax assets. Therefore, the Company has not recorded a valuation allowance against deferred tax assets. The minimum amount of future taxable income required to be generated to fully realize the deferred tax assets as of September 30, 2013 is approximately $2.2 million.

The Company's expected tax rate, exclusive of discrete items, for the year ending December 31, 2013, which was calculated based on the estimated annual operating results for the year, is 39.1%. The expected tax rate differs from the federal statutory rate of 34% primarily due to state income taxes.
The effective tax rates for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 were 42.7% and 39.7%, respectively. The effective tax rate for the three months ended September 30, 2013 differs from the expected tax rate primarily due to the decrease in the estimated annual operating results for the year, resulting in an increase of permanent differences which increased the expected tax rate. The effective tax rate for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 differs from the expected tax rate due to the true up of prior year taxes.
The effective tax rates for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 were 32.4% and 26.8%, respectively. The effective tax rate for the three months ended September 30, 2012 of 32.4% differs from the 2012 expected tax rate of 26.9% due to the timing of the reversal of the deferred tax valuation allowance. The effective tax rate for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 of 26.8% differs from the 2012 expected tax rate of 26.9% due to the adjustment for year to date deferred taxes associated with the reversal of the valuation allowance for deferred tax assets.
The Company has gross unrecognized tax benefits of $11,000 and $9,000 as of September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively. The Company believes that it is reasonably possible that the liability for unrecognized tax benefits related to certain state income tax matters may be settled within the next twelve months. The federal statute of limitation has expired for tax years prior to 2008 and relevant state statutes vary. The Company is currently not under any income tax audits or examinations and does not expect the assessment of any significant additional tax in excess of amounts accrued.
The Company accrues interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as interest expense and other general and administrative expenses, respectively, and not as a component of income taxes.
Note 9 – Customer Concentration
A significant portion of the Company’s electrical construction revenue has historically been derived from three or four utility customers each year. For the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, the three largest customers accounted for 63% and 72%, respectively, of the Company's total revenue. For the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, the three largest customers accounted for 59% and 60%, respectively, of the Company’s total revenue.
Note 10 - Restricted Cash
On October 25, 2010, the Company, as grantor, Valley Forge Insurance Company (the “Beneficiary”) and Branch Banking and Trust Company (the “Trustee”) entered into a Collateral Trust Agreement (the “Agreement”) in connection with the Company’s workers’ compensation insurance policies (the “Policies”) issued by the Beneficiary beginning in 2009. The Agreement was made to grant the Beneficiary a security interest in certain of the Company’s assets and to place those assets in a Trust Account to secure the Company’s obligations to the Beneficiary under the Policies. The deposits maintained under the Agreement are recorded as restricted cash, within the non-current assets section of our balance sheet.

Forward-Looking Statements
We make “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the “safe harbor” provision of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 throughout this document. You can identify these statements by forward-looking words such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “plan,” and “continue” or similar words. We have based these statements on our current expectations about future events. Although we believe that our expectations reflected in or suggested by our forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot assure you that these expectations will be achieved. Our actual results may differ materially from what we currently expect. Factors that may affect the results of our operations include, among others: the level of construction activities by public utilities; the concentration of revenue from a limited number of utility customers; the loss of one or more significant customers; the timing and duration of construction projects for which we are engaged; our ability to estimate accurately with respect to fixed price construction contracts; and heightened competition in the electrical construction field, including intensification of price competition. Other factors that may affect the results of our operations include, among others: adverse weather; natural disasters; effects of climate changes; changes in generally accepted accounting principles; ability to obtain necessary permits from regulatory agencies; our ability to maintain or increase historical revenue and profit margins; general economic conditions, both nationally and in our region; adverse legislation or regulations; availability of skilled construction labor and materials and material increases in labor and material costs; and our ability to obtain additional and/or renew financing. Other important factors which could cause our actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements in this document include, but are not limited to, those discussed in the “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” as well as those discussed elsewhere in this report and as set forth from time to time in our other public filings and public statements. In addition to the other information included in this report and our other public filings and releases, a discussion of factors affecting our business is included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012 under “Item 1A. Risk Factors” and should be considered while evaluating our business, financial condition, results of operations, and prospects.
You should read this report in its entirety and with the understanding that our actual future results may be materially different from what we expect. We may not update these forward-looking statements, even in the event that our situation changes in the future, except as required by law. All forward-looking statements attributable to us are expressly qualified by these cautionary statements.
Overview
We are a provider of electrical construction services throughout much of the United States. For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, our total consolidated revenue was $66.4 million.
Through our subsidiary, Southeast Power Corporation (“Southeast Power”), we are engaged in the construction and maintenance of electric utility facilities for electric utilities and industrial customers, and the installation of fiber optic cable for fiber optic cable manufacturers, telecommunication companies, and electric utilities. Southeast Power performs electrical contracting services primarily in the southeastern, mid-Atlantic and western regions of the United States. Southeast Power is headquartered in Titusville, Florida, and has additional offices in Bastrop, Texas, and Spartanburg, South Carolina.
The electrical construction business is highly competitive and fragmented. We compete with other independent contractors, including larger regional and national firms that may have financial, operational, technical and marketing resources that exceed our own. We also face competition from existing and prospective customers establishing or augmenting in-house service organizations that employ personnel who perform some of the same types of service as those provided by us. In addition, a significant portion of our electrical construction revenue is derived from a small group of customers, several of which account for a substantial portion of our revenue in any given year. The relative revenue contribution by any single customer or group of customers may significantly fluctuate from period to period. For example, for the year ended December 31, 2012 and the nine months ended September 30, 2013, three of our customers accounted for approximately 62% and 59% of our consolidated revenue, respectively. The loss of, or decrease in current demand from one or more of these customers, would, if not replaced by other business, result in a decrease in revenue, margins and profits, which could be material.
On August 26, 2013, we announced that our wholly owned subsidiary, Power Corporation of America, signed a Term Sheet with respect to the purchase of C and C Power Line, Inc. (“C and C”), a privately-held electrical construction company headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida. C and C has been involved in the construction of electrical transmission lines in Florida since 1989, with annual revenue of approximately $15.0 million in 2012. C and C is a union contractor, the acquisition of which would be expected to facilitate expansion of our electrical construction platform. The contemplated purchase price for all the stock of C and C will be approximately $7.0 million. Consummation of the purchase is subject to, among other conditions, completion of due diligence and execution of a definitive purchase agreement. The purchase is expected to be consummated in the fourth quarter of 2013. There can be no assurance that the acquisition will be completed.

Table of Contents

Historically, we have reported real estate development activities as a separate reportable segment. In recent years, our real estate activities reduced to a point that they are no longer significant for reporting purposes and, accordingly, results of our ongoing real estate operations are included in the income statement under the caption “Other.” Revenue from real estate development included under the caption “Other” was $448,000 and $1.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, representing approximately 1% and 2%, respectively, of our total revenue for such periods. Our only current real estate construction activity is the construction of a limited number of single family and townhome residential projects in Brevard County, Florida.
Critical Accounting Estimates
This discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations is based upon our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On an on-going basis, we evaluate our estimates, including those related to fixed price electrical construction contracts, the adequacy of our accrued remediation costs and deferred tax assets and liabilities. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable, under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities, that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. Our management has discussed the selection and development of our critical accounting policies, estimates, and related disclosure with the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors.
Percentage of Completion
We recognize revenue from fixed price contracts on a percentage-of-completion basis, using primarily the cost-to-cost method based on the percentage of total cost incurred to date, in proportion to total estimated cost to complete the contract. Total estimated cost, and thus contract income, is impacted by several factors including, but not limited to: changes in productivity and scheduling, the cost of labor, subcontracts, materials and equipment. Additionally, external factors such as weather, site conditions and scheduling that differ from those assumed in the original bid (to the extent contract remedies are unavailable), client needs, client delays in providing approvals, the availability and skill level of workers in the geographic location of the project, a change in the availability and proximity of materials, and governmental regulation, may also affect the progress and estimated cost of a project’s completion and thus the timing of income and revenue recognition.
The accuracy of our revenue and profit recognition in a given period is almost solely dependent on the accuracy of our estimates of the cost to complete each project. Due to our experience and our detailed approach in determining our cost estimates for all of our significant projects, we believe our estimates to be highly reliable. However, our projects can be complex and in almost every case the profit margin estimates for a project will either increase or decrease, to some extent, from the amount that was originally estimated at the time of bid. Because we have a number of projects of varying levels of complexity and size in process at any given time, these changes in estimates can offset each other without materially impacting our overall profitability. If a current estimate of total costs indicates a loss on a contract, the projected loss is recognized in full when determined. Accrued contract losses as of September 30, 2013 were $584,000. The accrued contract losses as of September 30, 2013, are mainly attributable to two large transmission projects experiencing unanticipated production delays, resulting from the unsatisfactory performance of a subcontractor which had to be replaced. The accrued contract losses as of December 31, 2012 were minimal. Revenue from change orders, extra work, variations in the scope of work and claims is recognized when realization is probable.
Accrued Remediation Costs
As described in note 5 to the consolidated financial statements in this form 10-Q, we have established a contingency provision within Discontinued Operations of $1.2 million as of September 30, 2013, relating to a pending environmental matter with respect to a mining property which we sold over fifty (50) years ago. The accrual will be reviewed periodically based upon facts and circumstances available at the time, which could result, and most likely will result, in changes to this amount.
Deferred Tax Assets and Liabilities
We account for income taxes in accordance with ASC Topic 740, Income Taxes, which establishes the recognition requirements. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax effects attributable to temporary differences and carryforwards between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and the respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date.
As of September 30, 2013, our deferred tax assets were largely comprised of alternative minimum tax (“AMT”) credit carryforwards and accrued remediation costs. The current deferred tax asset decreased to $474,000 as of September 30, 2013 from $773,000 as of December 31, 2012 due to the payment of retainage payables and utilization of AMT credit carryforwards.

Table of Contents

The non-current deferred tax liability increased to $5.2 million as of September 30, 2013 from $4.0 million as of December 31, 2012 due to additional tax depreciation in excess of book depreciation.
The carrying amounts of deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance, if based on the available evidence, it is more likely than not such assets will not be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the periods in which the deferred tax assets are expected to be recovered or settled. In the assessment for a valuation allowance, appropriate consideration is given to all positive and negative evidence related to the realization of the deferred tax assets. This assessment considers, among other matters, the nature, frequency and severity of current and cumulative losses, forecasts of future profitability, the duration of statutory carryforward periods, our experience with loss carryforwards expiring unused, and tax planning alternatives. If we determine we will not be able to realize all or part of our deferred tax assets, a valuation allowance would be recorded to reduce our deferred tax assets to the amount that is more likely than not to be realized.
Based on our assumptions with respect to forecasts of future taxable income and tax planning, among others, we anticipate being able to generate sufficient taxable income to utilize our deferred tax assets. Therefore, we have not recorded a valuation allowance against deferred tax assets. The minimum amount of future taxable income required to be generated to fully realize the deferred tax assets as of September 30, 2013 is approximately $2.2 million.

Operating income equals total operating revenue less operating expenses inclusive of depreciation and selling, general and administrative expenses. Operating expenses also include any gains or losses on the sale of property and equipment. Operating income excludes interest expense, interest income, other income, and income taxes.
Revenue
Total revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, increased 18.8% to $66.4 million, compared to $55.9 million for the like period in 2012. This increase resulted from higher demand for our electrical construction services, primarily our transmission work, which represents approximately 84.4% of the total increase in electrical construction revenue. Although several large projects throughout the Carolinas, Florida and Texas, contributed to the revenue increase, the largest driver was the $50.9 million South Texas Electric Cooperative (“STEC”) project, which started in April 2012 and was completed in August 2013.
Backlog
The varying magnitude and duration of electrical construction projects may result in substantial fluctuation in our backlog from time to time. Backlog represents the uncompleted portion of services to be performed under project-specific contracts and the estimated value of future services that we expect to provide under our existing service agreements, including new contractual agreements on which work has not begun. In many instances, our customers are not contractually committed to specific volumes of services and many of our contracts may be terminated with notice, therefore, we do not consider any portion of our backlog to be firm. However, our customers become obligated once we provide the services they have requested. Our service agreements are typically multi-year agreements, and we include in our backlog the amount of services projected to be performed over the terms of the contracts based on our historical relationships with these customers. Our estimates of a customer’s requirements during a particular future period may not be accurate at any point in time.
As of September 30, 2013 electrical construction backlog was approximately $24.6 million, compared to $53.6 million, as of September 30, 2012. The decrease in backlog was largely attributable to the completion of the STEC project, which represented $35.0 million of the backlog at September 30, 2012. Significantly, non-STEC backlog at September 30, 2013 increased 31.8% to $24.5 million, from $18.6 million at September 30, 2012. Of our total backlog at September 30, 2013, we expect approximately 66.9% to be completed during 2013. Contracts already awarded since September 30, 2013, together with other anticipated contract awards, are expected to significantly augment fourth quarter revenue.
The September 30, 2013 electrical construction backlog of approximately $24.6 million included approximately $22.1 million from fixed price contracts, for which revenue is recognized using percentage-of-completion, and approximately $2.5 million from service agreement contracts, for which revenue is recognized as work is performed. The September 30, 2012 backlog of $53.6 million included approximately $48.7 million from fixed price contracts and approximately $5.0 million from service agreements.

Operating Results
Total operating income decreased by $5.2 million to $5.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, from $10.7 million in 2012. Electrical construction operations operating income decreased by $4.5 million to $8.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, from $12.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. Operating margins on electrical construction operations decreased to 12.4% for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, from 23.3% for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. Substantially all of this decrease was the result of a strategic business decision to incur significant additional subcontractor and equipment costs in order to complete the STEC project by the contracted completion date of August 30, 2013. These additional costs contributed approximately $3.7 million of the total decrease in operating income. These costs largely represented additional manpower and equipment necessary to make up for project delays due to unanticipated adverse weather conditions, experienced mainly during the second quarter of 2013. As a result of these additional efforts, the project was completed by the August 30, 2013 deadline. Also contributing to the decrease in electrical construction operating margins were operating losses of approximately $1.1 million, primarily attributable to unanticipated production delays on two other large projects, resulting from the unsatisfactory performance of a subcontractor which had to be replaced.
Costs and Expenses
Total costs and expenses, and the components thereof, increased by $15.7 million to $60.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, from $45.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012.
Electrical construction operations cost of goods sold increased by $14.5 million to $53.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, from $39.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. This increase in costs is primarily attributable to additional subcontractor and equipment costs incurred on the STEC project during the three months ended June 30, 2013, as a result of management's strategic business decision to incur increased costs to complete the project by the August 30, 2013 deadline. Also contributing to the increase in costs were additional manpower costs incurred to replace the aforementioned subcontractor on two large projects experiencing unanticipated production issues.

SG&A expenses increased 12.4% to $2.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, from $2.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. The increase in SG&A expenses was mainly attributable to increases in professional services within corporate during the nine months ended September 30, 2013, when compared to the same period in 2012. As a percentage of revenue, SG&A expenses decreased to 4.4% for 2013, from 4.7% in 2012, due primarily to the aforementioned increase in revenue during the nine months ended September 30, 2013, when compared to the same period in 2012.

Our effective tax rate for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 of 39.7% differs from the expected tax rate due to the true up of the prior year taxes. Our effective tax rate for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 of 26.8% differs from the 2012 expected tax rate of 26.9% due to the adjustment for year to date deferred taxes associated with the reversal of the valuation allowance for deferred tax assets.
Discontinued Operations
Through certain of our subsidiaries and predecessor companies, we were previously engaged in mining activities and ended all such activities in December 2002.
In June 2013, we received an inquiry from the EPA with respect to a previously owned mining property. We have commenced investigating the historic operations that occurred, as well as the nature and scope of environmental conditions at the Site. Please refer to the discussion in note 5 to the consolidated financial statements for more information regarding the Site and our discontinued operations.

Discontinued Operations
Through certain of our subsidiaries and predecessor companies, we were previously engaged in mining activities and ended all such activities in December 2002. There were no discontinued operations for either of the three month periods ended September 30, 2013 or 2012.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
Working Capital Analysis
Our primary cash needs have been for capital expenditures and working capital. Our primary sources of cash have been cash flow from operations and borrowings under our lines of credit and equipment financing. As of September 30, 2013, we had cash and cash equivalents of $9.3 million and working capital of $17.1 million, as compared to cash and cash equivalents of $7.8 million, and working capital of $18.8 million as of December 31, 2012. In addition, we had $5.0 million in an unused revolving line of credit as of September 30, 2013. This revolving line of credit is used as a Working Capital Loan, as discussed in note 4 to the consolidated financial statements. We anticipate that this cash on hand, our credit facilities and our future cash flows from operating activities will provide sufficient cash to enable us to meet our operating needs and debt requirements for the next twelve months. If the aforementioned planned acquisition of C and C is concluded, we anticipate approximately $3.5 million of additional Bank borrowings will be incurred.

Operating Activities
Cash flows from operating activities are comprised of net income, adjusted to reflect the timing of cash receipts and disbursements therefrom. Our cash flows are influenced by the level of operations, operating margins and the types of services we provide, as well as the stages of our electrical construction projects.
Cash provided by our operating activities totaled $8.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared to cash provided by operating activities of $9.1 million for 2012. The decrease in cash flows from operating activities is primarily due to the changes in our “net income,” and “accounts payable and accrued liabilities,” offset by the changes in the item “costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings on uncompleted contracts” and “billings in excess of costs and estimated earnings on uncompleted contracts,” during the current period. Net income decreased to $2.4 million from $7.7 million, mainly attributable to the aforementioned decrease in operating income due to the STEC project. The changes reflected in the item “accounts payable and accrued liabilities” changed from $4.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 to $367,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, primarily due to the status of our accounts payable during the current period. The changes reflected in the item “costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings on uncompleted contracts” changed from $(4.6) million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 to $2.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, mainly attributable to the completion of the STEC project. The changes reflected in the item “billings in excess of costs and estimated earnings on uncompleted contracts” changed from $(717,000) for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 to $701,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, mainly due to billing provisions on some of our contracts. Operating cash flows normally fluctuate relative to the status of our electrical construction projects.
Days of Sales Outstanding Analysis
We evaluate fluctuations in our accounts receivable and costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings on uncompleted contracts, for our electrical construction operations, by comparing days of sales outstanding (“DSO”). We calculate DSO as of the end of any period by utilizing the respective quarter’s electrical construction revenue to determine sales per day. We then divide accounts receivable and accrued billings, net of allowance for doubtful accounts at the end of the period, by sales per day, to calculate DSO for accounts receivable. To calculate DSO for costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings, we divide costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings on uncompleted contracts, by sales per day.
For the quarters ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, our DSO for accounts receivable were 53 and 48, respectively, and our DSO for costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings on uncompleted contracts were 21 and 27, respectively. The increase in our DSO for accounts receivable was mainly due to the retainage balance associated with the STEC project. The decrease in our DSO for costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings on uncompleted contracts was mainly due to the completion of the STEC project. As of November 12, 2013, we have received approximately 62.8% of our September 30, 2013 outstanding trade accounts receivable and have billed 61.6% of our costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings balance.
Income Taxes Paid
Income tax payments increased to $2.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, from $308,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. Taxes paid for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 included approximately $1.0 million for the 2012 tax liability and the remaining $1.1 million for the estimated 2013 income tax liability, compared to taxes paid for the same nine month period in 2012, which included $308,000 in payments for the estimated 2012 income tax liability.
Investing Activities
Cash used in investing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, was $10.0 million, compared to cash used in investing activities of $7.4 million for 2012. The increase in cash used in our investing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, when compared to 2012, is primarily due to the increase in capital expenditures during the current year period. These capital expenditures are mainly attributable to purchases of equipment, primarily trucks and heavy machinery, used by our electrical construction operations for the upgrading and replacement of equipment, as well as expansion efforts. Our capital budget for 2013 is expected to total approximately $12.6 million, the majority of which is for upgrading and

19

Table of Contents

purchases of equipment, for our electrical construction operations. We plan to fund these purchases through our cash on hand and equipment financing, consistent with past practices.
Financing Activities
Cash provided by financing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, was $3.1 million, compared to cash provided by financing activities of $3.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. Our financing activities for the current year consisted mainly of net borrowings on our equipment loans totaling $6.5 million and borrowings on our Working Capital Loan of $2.0 million, offset by repayments on our installment loan of $1.4 million, on our equipment loans totaling $1.9 million, and on our Working Capital Loan of $2.0 million. Our financing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, consisted mainly of borrowings on our Working Capital Loan of $2.1 million, and net borrowings on our equipment loans totaling $6.0 million. These borrowings were offset by repayments of $2.9 million for our Working Capital Loan, on our equipment loans totaling $934,000, and on our installment loan of $308,000.
We have paid no cash dividends on our common stock since 1933, and it is not expected that we will pay any cash dividends on our common stock in the immediate future.
Debt Covenants
Our debt arrangements contain various financial and other covenants including cross-default provisions whereby any default under any loans of the Company (or its subsidiaries) with the lender, will constitute a default under all of the other loans of the Company (and its subsidiaries) with the lender. The most significant of the covenants are a minimum tangible net worth, an outside debt limitation, and a maximum debt to tangible net worth ratio. We must maintain a tangible net worth of at least $18.0 million, no more than $500,000 in outside debt (with certain exceptions), and a maximum debt to tangible net worth ratio of no greater than 2.25:1.00. We were in compliance with all of our covenants as of September 30, 2013.
The following are computations of these most restrictive financial covenants:

Forecast
We anticipate our cash on hand and cash flows from operations and credit facilities will provide sufficient cash to enable us to meet our working capital needs, debt service requirements and planned capital expenditures, for at least the next twelve months. The amount of our planned capital expenditures will depend, to some extent, on the results of our future performance. However, our revenue, results of operations and cash flows, as well as our ability to seek additional financing, may be negatively impacted by factors including, but not limited to: a decline in demand for electrical construction services, general economic conditions, heightened competition, availability of construction materials, increased interest rates, and adverse weather conditions.

Item 4.
Controls and Procedures.
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports that we file or submit under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the SEC, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management in a timely manner. An evaluation was performed under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including John H. Sottile, our Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”), and Stephen R. Wherry, our Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”), of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)) as of September 30, 2013. Based upon that evaluation, our management, including our CEO and our CFO, concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of September 30, 2013, at the reasonable assurance level.
Changes in Internal Control
No changes in our internal control over financial reporting occurred during the third quarter of 2013 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
Limitations on the Effectiveness of Controls
A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance, not absolute assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Because of inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues, if any, within a company have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the controls. The design of any system of controls is also based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that the design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with policies and procedures may deteriorate. Because of the inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.
