Management Commentary
"During the first quarter of 2013, we experienced double-digit revenue growth, which drove our net income of $0.23 per share," said Dickerson Wright, Chairman and CEO of NV5 Holdings. "These results were achieved through new project wins, prudent expense management and our third quarter 2012 acquisition of Kaco, a 30-person engineering firm."

"Subsequent to the first quarter of 2013, we acquired an owner's representation and program management firm, Consilium Partners," continued Wright. "This strategic acquisition supplements our established infrastructure presence nationally, specifically in the Rocky Mountain region, and is expected to be immediately accretive to our earnings. We remain committed to our acquisition strategy and are enthusiastic about our growing pipeline of opportunities."

Wright concluded: "As we look towards the rest of 2013, we are encouraged by the development we are seeing in our backlog and expect continued organic revenue growth and the benefit of scale, integration and leverage in our business."

2013 Outlook
The Company expects fiscal year 2013 gross contract revenues to range between $62 million and $70 million, which would represent an increase of approximately 2% to 16% from 2012 gross contract revenues.
