Total revenue increased 2.8 percent to $233.9 million over the $227.6 million from the prior year period and profit grew 13.1 percent to $10.1 million over the $8.9 million from the previous year.
“The 14.3 percent year-over-year growth in our commercial client revenues and the increased contribution from our non-U.S. government clients enabled us to report higher first quarter revenues despite the uncertainty surrounding sequestration in the U.S. federal market and the uneven timing of certain state and local government projects, ” said Sudhakar Kesavan, ICF Chairman and CEO.
Fifty-three percent of the company’s total sales for the quarter came from commercial markets, totaling $121 million.
Backlog reached $1.5 billion at the end of the quarter and funded backlog represented $720 million of that, or 48 percent.
Kesavan also said the company saw a 2.1 percent increase in revenue from its energy, environment and infrastructure markets; followed by 5.5 percent growth in the health, social programs and consumer/financial markets.
“These markets accounted for 87 percent of first quarter 2013 revenues, ” he added.
