  • Sterling is a leading heavy civil construction company that specializes in the building and reconstruction of transportation and water infrastructure projects in Texas, Utah, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, California, Hawaii and other states in which there are construction opportunities. Its transportation infrastructure projects include highways, roads, bridges, airfields, ports and light rail. Its water infrastructure projects include water, wastewater and storm drainage systems.
  • The U.S. transportation construction market is forecasted to grow from $200.5 billion in 2015 to $208.3 billion in 2016. This increase is largely driven by the federal “Fixing Americas Surface Transportation Act” (“Fast Act”). The Fast Act is the first law enacted in over ten years that provides long-term funding for transportation, meaning states can move forward with critical projects with confidence as they will now have a Federal partner over the long term.

  • a ten percent decrease in our 2015 vehicle shipments would reduce our Adjusted Earnings Before Interest and Taxes (“Adjusted EBIT”) by approximately 29 percent for 2015, without considering actions and cost containment measures we may take in response to decreased vehicle sales.
  • In addition, our profitability in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Caribbean islands (“NAFTA”), a region which contributed a majority of our profit in 2015, is particularly dependent on demand for our pickup trucks, larger utility vehicles and minivans. A shift in demand away from these vehicles within the NAFTA region, and towards compact and mid-size passenger cars, whether in response to higher fuel prices or other factors, could adversely affect our profitability.

  • The Dutch state nationalized SNS Reaal on Feb. 1 and declared that the junior bonds wouldn't be paid back, essentially seizing them and rendering them worthless. That makes it difficult to compensate those who bought insurance-like contracts, known as credit-default swaps, on the bonds because payouts—which are the same for everyone—are determined when bondholders deliver their bonds at an auction. Without the bonds, there can be no auction, so no payout on CDS can be determined
  • In Ireland, the state didn't seize the subordinated debt of the banks. Instead, it declared the price it would pay for the debt and told bondholders they must take that price or receive nothing. That allowed for auctions at which the CDS compensation could be determined.
