Revenue for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2007 was approximately $738.0 million. On September 30, 2007, the Company’s total contract backlog was approximately $5.0 billion.

The calculation and reconciliation to the most comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP is included in the table below.

The Company’s financial statements for its fiscal year ended September 30, 2007 are not yet completed. The foregoing estimates and approximations constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, and are based on the Company’s preliminary internal estimates of performance for its fiscal year ended September 30, 2007. These estimates and approximations may be subject to adjustments in connection with the Company’s routine period-end, quarter-end and year-end closing procedures. In addition, the Company’s year-end financial statements for fiscal year 2007 have not yet been reviewed by its independent public accountants. The Company’s actual results for the fiscal year 2007 and for future periods may differ materially from its current estimates and approximations. Accordingly, investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on the foregoing estimates and approximations.
In the Company’s September 30, 2007 valuation of its common stock, new enterprise values that resulted from the market multiple and comparable transaction models were slightly down from the March 31, 2007 valuation. The more significant difference resulted from the discounted cash flow model due to the lower than expected revenue for fiscal year ended September 30, 2007. The Company’s budgeted revenue for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2007 was approximately $766 million, compared to actual revenue of approximately $738 million. As a result, the projections of the valuation firm for the Company were lower for each subsequent fiscal year. When the discounted cash flow model was run against these lower projections, it had a downward effect on the enterprise value and in turn, the equity value of the Company.
