Net income for the second quarter increased to $11,264,000, or $0.81 per diluted share, as compared to $10,848,000, or $0.77 per diluted share, in the same period of 2013. For the quarter EBITDA1 was $19,669,000, as compared to $19,470,000 in the same period one year ago.

For the six months ended July 4, 2014, revenues before reimbursements increased to $145,298,000, as compared to $140,911,000 in the same period of 2013. Total revenues increased to $152,536,000 as compared to $148,165,000 in the same period one year ago.

Net income for first half of 2014 increased to $20,418,000, or $1.47 per diluted share, as compared to $18,824,000, or $1.34 per diluted share, in the same period of 2013. For the first half of 2014, EBITDA increased to $36,312,000, as compared to $34,079,000 in the same period one year ago.

“For the second quarter revenues were in line with our guidance while our EBITDA margin was better than expected,” commented Dr. Paul Johnston, President and CEO. “Our reactive project work continued at a steady pace and we experienced good demand for our proactive consulting services, particularly in the consumer electronics, medical device, and utility industries.

“The second quarter wrapped up a solid first half of 2014, putting Exponent in a position to achieve growth in revenues before reimbursements in the low single digits for the fiscal year. Considering our performance in the first half, we are improving our 2014 outlook on EBITDA margin by 75 basis points to be down by approximately 25 basis points from the 24.6% margin in 2013.

“Exponent continues to be a leading, multi-disciplinary engineering and scientific consulting firm and we are excited about the opportunities that this market position presents us well into the future,” concluded Dr. Johnston.

1 EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure defined by the Company as net income before income taxes, interest income, depreciation and amortization. EBITDAS is a non-GAAP financial measure defined by the Company as EBITDA before stock-based compensation. The Company regards EBITDA and EBITDAS as useful measures of operating performance and cash flow to complement operating income, net income and other GAAP financial performance measures. Additionally, management believes that EBITDA and EBITDAS provide meaningful comparisons of past, present and future operating results. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance, financial position or cash flow that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. These measures, however, should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute or superior to, operating income, cash flows, or other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of the measures to GAAP is set forth below.

MENLO PARK, Calif., Feb. 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exponent, Inc. (Nasdaq:EXPO) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended January 3, 2014.

For the 14-week fourth quarter of 2013, revenues before reimbursements increased 6% to $69,036,000, as compared to $65,049,000 in the13-week fourth quarter of 2012. Total revenues were $72,772,000, as compared to $72,946,000 in the same period one year ago.

Net income for the fourth quarter increased 3% to $8,722,000, or $0.63 per diluted share, as compared to $8,472,000, or $0.60 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2012. For the quarter EBITDA1 increased 2% to $15,906,000, as compared to $15,607,000 in the same period one year ago.

For the 53-week fiscal year 2013, revenues before reimbursements increased 5% to $280,043,000, as compared to $266,562,000 in the 52-week fiscal year 2012. Total revenues for 2013 were $296,168,000, as compared to $292,653,000 in 2012.

Net income for fiscal year 2013 increased 4% to $38,640,000, or $2.76 per diluted share, as compared to $37,225,000, or $2.60 per diluted share, in fiscal year 2012. For the year EBITDA1 increased 4% to $68,769,000, as compared to $66,132,000 one year ago.

For fiscal year 2013, Exponent generated $61.8 million in cash from operations, repurchased $25.0 million of common stock, and paid dividends of $7.9 million. The Company closed the year with $156.1 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments.

"We are pleased to have delivered solid financial results in 2013, with continued revenue and net income growth, and strong cash flow from operations. This performance allowed us to continue to return value to shareholders through share repurchases and the initiation of dividend payments," commented Dr. Paul Johnston, President and CEO. "For the year, we had notable performances from our polymer science, mechanical engineering, biomedical, engineering management and construction consulting practices.

"During 2013 we continued to build upon our leading position in reactive services including investigations of accidents, product recalls, and health and environmental exposures. Additionally, we expanded our market recognition in proactive services including product design consulting, regulatory consulting and risk management. We continue to see good growth opportunities in both reactive and proactive services for 2014 and beyond.

"As we look at 2014 our growth in revenues before reimbursements will be reduced because of a step-down in a few major assignments, lower defense spending, an extra week in fiscal 2013 and $1.4 million of revenues recognized upon payment in 2013 for work performed in the prior year. As a result, we expect 2014 growth in revenues before reimbursements to be in the low single digits and EBITDA1 margin to be down approximately 100 basis points from 24.6% in 2013.

"Going forward we will continue to expand our expertise and experience to address our clients' important technology, health and environmental questions. We are optimistic about our market opportunities and look forward to translating these into long-term shareholder value," concluded Dr. Johnston.

October 16, 2013

MENLO PARK, Calif., October 16, 2013 - Exponent, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXPO) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 27, 2013.

For the third quarter of 2013, revenues before reimbursements increased 5% to $70,096,000, as compared to $66,725,000 in the third quarter of 2012. Total revenues increased 3% to $75,231,000, as compared to $73,298,000 in the same period one year ago.

Net income for the third quarter increased 8% to $11,094,000, or $0.79 per diluted share, as compared to $10,225,000, or $0.72 per diluted share, reported in the third quarter of 2012. EBITDA1 increased 8% to $18,784,000, as compared to $17,383,000 in the same period one year ago.

During the third quarter, Exponent generated $17,394,000 in cash from operations, repurchased $4,093,000 of common stock, and paid a dividend of $1,970,000. The Company closed the quarter with $135,043,000 in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments.

“Revenue, utilization and profitability were better than expected in the quarter as we had solid growth from our underlying business while our major assignments did not tail-off as quickly as anticipated. During the quarter we had notable performances in our polymer sciences, mechanical engineering, biomedical, construction consulting and chemical regulation and food safety practices,” commented Dr. Paul Johnston, President and CEO.

“Considering our better-than-expected performance year to date, we now expect growth in revenues before reimbursements for the full year to be in the middle single digits. We are also improving our 2013 outlook on EBITDA margin by 100 basis points to be down by 50 to 100 basis points as compared to the previous year. This guidance reflects the offsetting effects of reduced revenues from a few major assignments and a decline in defense work, with increased revenues from growth of the remaining business and a 53rd week in 2013.

“We continue to see an increasing demand for our multi-disciplinary consulting services. We are adding talent that will ensure that we have the resources to address our clients’ most important engineering and scientific business issues now and into the future,” concluded Dr. Johnston.

July 23, 2013

MENLO PARK, Calif., July 23, 2013 - Exponent, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXPO) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 28, 2013.

For the second quarter of 2013, revenues before reimbursements increased 5% to $71,919,000, as compared to $68,318,000 in the second quarter of 2012. Total revenues were $75,505,000, as compared to $74,484,000 in the same period one year ago.

Net income for the second quarter was $10,848,000, or $0.77 per diluted share, as compared to $10,327,000, or $0.72 per diluted share, reported in the same quarter one year ago. EBITDA1 increased 6% to $19,470,000, as compared to $18,342,000 in the second quarter last year.

During the second quarter, Exponent generated $21.6 million in cash from operations, repurchased $5.4 million of common stock, and paid a dividend of $2.0 million. The Company closed the quarter with $123.1 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments.

“Revenue, utilization and EBITDA performance were better than expected during the quarter,” commented Dr. Paul Johnston, President and CEO. “During the quarter we had notable performances in our mechanical, electrical, thermal sciences, human factors, and chemical regulation and food safety practices, as well as our infrastructure group. Our revenues before reimbursements during the second quarter of 2013 included $1.75 million related to services performed for a foreign client in prior periods, which was recognized upon receipt of payment.

“We continued to see a steady flow of reactive engagements to investigate accidents, product recalls, and health and environmental exposures. Additionally we are seeing growth in our more proactive services including product design consulting, regulatory consulting and risk management.

“Considering our better-than-expected performance year to date, we now expect growth in revenues before reimbursements for the full year to be in the low single digits. We are also improving our 2013 outlook on EBITDA margin by 75 basis points to be down by 150 to 200 basis points as compared to the previous year. This guidance reflects the offsetting effects of reduced revenues from a few major assignments and a decline in defense work, with increased revenues from growth of the remaining business.

“We are optimistic about our long-term opportunities and remain focused on further translating our unique scientific and engineering capabilities into additional value,” concluded Dr. Johnston.

MENLO PARK, Calif., April 17, 2013 - Exponent, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXPO) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 29, 2013.

For the first quarter of 2013, revenues before reimbursements increased 4% to $68,992,000, as compared to $66,470,000 in the first quarter of 2012. Total revenues were $72,660,000, as compared to $71,925,000 in the same period one year ago.

Net income for the first quarter was $7,976,000, or $0.56 per diluted share, as compared to $8,201,000, or $0.57 per diluted share, reported in the same quarter one year ago. EBITDA1 was $14,609,000, as compared to $14,800,000 in the first quarter last year.

During the first quarter, Exponent repurchased $11,700,000 of its common stock, and closed the quarter with $111,000,000 in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments.

“The first quarter was better than we expected as we posted revenue growth and solid utilization,” commented Dr. Paul Johnston, President and CEO. “Following a slower January, we received some additional follow-on activities related to major assignments and continued to see a steady flow of new work. During the quarter we had notable performances in our electrical, thermal sciences, biomedical engineering, human factors, and engineering management and construction consulting practices.

“Looking forward we still expect 2013 revenues before reimbursements to be approximately flat with 2012. We are improving our 2013 outlook on EBITDA margin by 25 basis points to be down by 225 to 275 basis points as compared to the previous year. This guidance reflects the offsetting effects of reduced revenues from a few major assignments and defense work, with increased revenues from growth of the remaining business.

”We remain optimistic about our long-term ability to build upon our differentiated market position as a leading multi-disciplinary engineering and scientific consulting firm. We will continue to enhance shareholder value through stock repurchases and quarterly dividends,” concluded Dr. Johnston.

1 EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure defined by the Company as net income before income taxes, interest income, depreciation and amortization. EBITDAS is a non-GAAP financial measure defined by the Company as EBITDA before stock-based compensation. The Company regards EBITDA and EBITDAS as useful measures of operating performance and cash flow to complement operating income, net income and other GAAP financial performance measures. Additionally, management believes that EBITDA and EBITDAS provide meaningful comparisons of past, present and future operating results. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance, financial position or cash flow that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. These measures, however, should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute or superior to, operating income, cash flows, or other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of the measures to GAAP is set forth below.

MENLO PARK, Calif., January 30, 2013 - Exponent, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXPO) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 28, 2012.

For the fourth quarter of 2012, revenues before reimbursements increased 7% to $65,049,000, as compared to $60,524,000 in the fourth quarter of 2011. Total revenues increased 7% to $72,946,000, as compared to $67,916,000 in the same period one year ago.

Net income for the fourth quarter increased 10% to $8,472,000, or $0.60 per diluted share, as compared to $7,731,000, or $0.54 per diluted share, reported in the same quarter one year ago. EBITDA1 improved 10% to $15,607,000, as compared to $14,139,000 in the fourth quarter last year.

For fiscal year 2012, revenues before reimbursements increased 8% to $266,562,000, as compared to $246,667,000, in 2011. Total revenues increased 7% to $292,653,000, as compared to $272,446,000 in the prior year.

Net income for fiscal year 2012 improved 14% to $37,225,000, or $2.60 per diluted share, as compared to $32,695,000, or $2.22 per diluted share, reported in the prior year. EBITDA1 improved 12% to $66,132,000, as compared to $58,994,000, in 2011.

During 2012, Exponent generated $48.5 million in cash flow from operations, repurchased $23.4 million of its common stock, and closed the year with $134.1 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments.

“The fourth quarter concluded another good year of revenue growth and profitability for Exponent,” commented Dr. Paul Johnston, President and CEO. “During our fourth quarter, we experienced good demand for both proactive and reactive services and continued to benefit from activity related to a few major assignments – resulting in high utilization despite our seasonally slower quarter. Additionally, our defense technology development practice had strong surveillance system product sales.

“Throughout 2012, we assisted a wide range of clients in addressing significant technological, health and environmental matters by leveraging our breadth of disciplines and depth of engineering and scientific knowledge. We grew our consulting staff while achieving record utilization.

“For the year, we had notable contributions in our environmental and health segment from our environmental sciences, ecological sciences, and chemical regulation and food safety practices. In our engineering and other scientific segment we had notable performances from our mechanics and materials, electrical, thermal, and engineering management consulting practices.

“We previously communicated that over the last couple of years a few major assignments have accounted for a greater than usual percentage of revenues, and that there would be an impact on year-over-year revenue growth and profit margins when these assignments stepped down. As we enter 2013 we have experienced this anticipated step-down in these major assignments. Additionally, we are seeing the impact of constraints on defense spending and the reduction of forces in Afghanistan. As a result we expect 2013 revenues before reimbursements to be approximately flat with 2012 and EBITDA1 margin to be down 250 to 300 basis points.

“As we look forward we will continue to build upon our differentiated market position as a multidisciplinary engineering and scientific consulting firm with unparalleled technical expertise and experience. We remain optimistic about our market opportunities and look forward to translating these into long-term shareholder value,” concluded Dr. Johnston.

Net income for the quarter increased 17% to $10,225,000, or $0.72 per diluted share, as compared to $8,744,000, or $0.60 per diluted share, reported in the same quarter a year ago. EBITDA1 improved 13% to $17,383,000, as compared to $15,446,000 in the third quarter last year.

For the first nine months of 2012, total revenues increased 7% to $219,707,000, as compared to $204,530,000 in the same period of 2011. Revenues before reimbursements increased 8% to $201,513,000, as compared to $186,143,000, in the same period of last year.

Net income for the first nine months of 2012 increased 15% to $28,753,000, or $2.01 per diluted share, as compared to $24,964,000, or $1.67 per diluted share, reported in the prior year period. EBITDA1 in the first nine months of 2012 improved 13% to $50,525,000, as compared to $44,855,000, in the first nine months of 2011.

During the first nine months of 2012, Exponent repurchased $19.4 million of its common stock, and closed the period with $109.7 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments.

“We again delivered strong revenue growth and profitability in the third quarter and are pleased with our performance,” commented Dr. Paul Johnston, President and CEO. “Demand in our proactive and reactive businesses was strong, and activity levels on a few major projects remained high. As a result, we had increased utilization.

“In our environmental and health segment we had notable contributions from our environmental sciences, ecological sciences, and chemical registration and food safety practices. In our engineering and other scientific segment we had notable performances from our mechanics and materials, electrical, thermal, human factors and engineering management consulting practices. Additionally, despite some expected surveillance system product sales pushing into the fourth quarter, defense technology development also made a meaningful contribution from several projects related to detection of improvised explosive devices.

“In summary, the third quarter performance positions Exponent for a strong 2012. As a result, we are again increasing our fiscal year 2012 outlook. We now expect growth in revenue before reimbursements to be in the high single digits and full year EBITDA1 margin to increase over the prior year. Our growth expectations are particularly significant given the strong 2011 comparable. We are optimistic about our long-term opportunities and remain focused on further translating our unique scientific and engineering capabilities into additional value,” concluded Dr. Johnston.

MENLO PARK, Calif., July 18, 2012 - Exponent, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXPO) today reported financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 29, 2012.

For the second quarter of 2012, total revenues increased 14% to $74,484,000, as compared to $65,106,000 in the same period one year ago. Revenues before reimbursements increased 13% to $68,318,000, as compared to $60,573,000 in the second quarter of 2011.

Net income for the quarter increased 26% to $10,327,000, or $0.72 per diluted share, as compared to $8,217,000, or $0.55 per diluted share, reported in the same quarter a year ago. EBITDA1 improved 22% to $18,342,000, as compared to $14,987,000 in the second quarter last year.

For the first half of 2012, total revenues increased 6% to $146,409,000, as compared to $138,579,000 in the same period of last year. Revenues before reimbursements increased 8% to $134,788,000, as compared to $124,756,000, in the same period of 2011.

Net income for the first half of 2012 increased 14% to $18,528,000, or $1.29 per diluted share, as compared to $16,220,000, or $1.08 per diluted share, reported in the prior year period. EBITDA1 in the first half of 2012 improved 13% to $33,142,000, as compared to $29,409,000, in the first half of 2011.

During the second quarter of 2012, Exponent repurchased $14.4 million of its common stock, and closed the quarter with $109.0 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments.

“We are pleased with our second quarter performance having produced double-digit revenue growth and increased profitability,” commented Dr. Paul Johnston, President and CEO. “We continued to benefit from strong demand across a broad range of our services, both proactive and reactive. We experienced high utilization as we continued to benefit from new work in key areas as well as a few major projects. In our environmental and health segment we had notable contributions from our environmental sciences, ecological sciences, chemical registration and food safety, and exposure assessment practices. In our engineering and other scientific segment we had notable performances from our mechanics and materials, electrical, biomedical, vehicle, and engineering management consulting practices. In addition, our defense technology development business saw an increase in activity supporting the U.S. Army’s Rapid Equipping Force which was offset by the winding down of our current U.S. ground penetrating radar development contract.

“For the full year 2012, we are increasing our outlook for growth in revenue before reimbursements to be in the mid-single digits and expect full year EBITDA1 margin to be approximately flat over the prior year. This outlook reflects the strong utilization during the first half of the year, our expectation that a few major projects will step down in their level of activity in the next several quarters, and lower defense technology development product sales as compared to the prior year. We are pleased with our performance to date and are optimistic about our ability to weather a difficult economic environment as our project work, both in the U.S. and internationally, are in areas that we believe are less sensitive to the economic slowdown. We look forward to further translating our unique scientific and engineering capabilities into additional shareholder value over time,” concluded Dr. Johnston.

April 18, 2012

MENLO PARK, Calif., April 18, 2012 - Exponent, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXPO) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 30, 2012.

For the first quarter of 2012, revenues before reimbursements increased 4% to $66,470,000 as compared to $64,183,000 in the first quarter of 2011. Total revenues were $71,925,000, as compared to $73,473,000 in the same period one year ago.

Net income for the first quarter increased to $8,201,000, or $0.57 per diluted share, as compared to $8,003,000, or $0.53 per diluted share, reported in the same quarter one year ago. EBITDA1 improved to $14,800,000, as compared to $14,422,000 in the first quarter last year.

During the first quarter, Exponent repurchased $4.0 million of its common stock, leaving $40.4 million available under its currently authorized repurchase program. The Company closed the quarter with $103.7 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments.

“We are pleased with our performance in the first quarter, especially considering the difficult comparison to the same quarter last year when we had significant defense product sales,” commented Dr. Paul Johnston, President and CEO. “During the quarter, we experienced good demand for both reactive and proactive services. We achieved higher utilization while also adding to our consulting staff and carefully managing expenses. Notable performances in the quarter included our mechanics and materials, electrical and thermal sciences practices, as well as our health and environmental groups.

“The first quarter was a solid start to fiscal year 2012, for which we continue to expect growth in revenue before reimbursements to be in the low- to mid-single digits. This growth has been tempered by the fact that our largest projects in 2011 accounted for a greater percentage of our revenues than in a typical year. We expect these projects will be stepping down in their level of activity over the next several quarters. As a result we expect 2012 utilization to be lower by a percentage point or two as compared to last year, and the EBITDA1 margin will be down slightly. We remain optimistic about our ability to leverage our multidisciplinary approach and expertise to capitalize on new market opportunities as we expand our business,” concluded Dr. Johnston.

Today's Conference Call Information

Exponent will discuss its financial results in more detail on a conference call today, April 18, 2012, starting at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time/1:30 p.m. Pacific Time.

MENLO PARK, Calif., July 20, 2011 - Exponent, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXPO) today reported financial results for the second quarter and six months ended July 1, 2011.

For the second quarter of 2011, total revenues increased 8% to $65,106,000, as compared to $60,439,000 in the same period one year ago. Revenues before reimbursements increased 10% to $60,573,000, as compared to $55,128,000 in the second quarter of 2010.

Net income for the quarter was up 13% to $8,217,000, or $0.55 per diluted share, as compared to $7,280,000, or $0.48 per diluted share, reported in the same quarter a year ago. EBITDA1 improved 13% to $14,987,000, as compared to $13,293,000 in the second quarter last year.

During the second quarter of 2011, Exponent repurchased $16 million of its common stock, bringing the 2011 year-to-date repurchase total to $23 million. The Company closed the second quarter with $95 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments.

For the first half of 2011, total revenues increased 16% to $138,579,000, as compared to $119,845,000 in the same period of last year. Revenues before reimbursements increased 13% to $124,756,000, as compared to $110,329,000, in the same period of 2010.

Net income for the first half of 2011 improved 20% to $16,220,000, or $1.08 per diluted share, as compared to $13,519,000, or $0.90 per diluted share, reported in the prior year period. EBITDA1 in the first half of 2011 improved 18% to $29,409,000, as compared to $24,833,000, in the first half of 2010.

“We are pleased with our performance in the quarter, showing continued revenue growth and profitability,” commented Dr. Paul Johnston, President and CEO. “Our utilization remained strong as we experienced sustained demand related to a few major assignments. We had notable contributions from our mechanics and materials, electrical, thermal sciences, and human factors practices.

“Looking forward, we are mindful of the comparison against an unusually strong second half of 2010, where utilization and product sales were significantly higher than historical levels. Nevertheless given our strong performance in the first half of 2011, we are now raising our full-year expectations for EBITDA1 margin to be only slightly down and for growth in revenue before reimbursements to be in the high single digits, as compared to 2010.

“We added key talent in the quarter, expanding our breadth of disciplines and depth of knowledge in engineering and science. Our professionals continue to demonstrate the appropriate expertise and experience to answer clients’ important technology, health, and environmental questions,” concluded Dr. Johnston.

April 20, 2011

MENLO PARK, Calif., April 20, 2011 - Exponent, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXPO) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended April 1, 2011.

For the first quarter of 2011, total revenues grew 24% to $73,473,000, as compared to $59,406,000 in the same period one year ago. Revenues before reimbursements increased 16% to $64,183,000, as compared to $55,201,000 in the first quarter of 2010. Net income for the quarter was up 28% to $8,003,000, or $0.53 per diluted share, as compared to $6,239,000, or $0.42 per diluted share, reported in the same quarter a year ago. EBITDA1 improved 25% to $14,422,000, as compared to $11,540,000 in the first quarter last year.

During the first quarter of 2011, Exponent repurchased $7.1 million of its common stock, and closed the quarter with $92.3 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments.

“We are pleased to have delivered strong first quarter results,” commented Dr. Paul Johnston, President and CEO. “During the quarter we continued to see elevated levels of activity on a number of major assignments which engaged consultants across many of our practices. As a result utilization was up as compared to the same period a year ago. We had notable contributions from our defense technology development, biomechanics, biomedical engineering, and thermal science practices, as well as our environmental and health groups. Additionally, we had significant year over year growth in product sales of the Rapidly Deployed Surveillance Systems."

“For the full year 2011 we expect growth in revenue before reimbursements to be in the mid-single digits. The second half of 2011 compares to an unusually strong 2010, in which we had utilization and product sales that were higher than historical levels. As some of our major assignments move beyond the initial intense investigatory phase, we anticipate activity levels to gradually step down, but most likely continue for several quarters or years. For 2011, we expect utilization to be in the high sixties and to experience a slight decrease in the EBITDA1 margin when compared to the prior year. "

“We are pleased that the talent, which we have added and developed over the past several years, has the appropriate knowledge and experience to assist clients with the significant technology, health, and environmental challenges that they are facing today. We will continue our focus on adding the best engineers and scientists and developing the skills necessary to expand upon our unique market position,” concluded Dr. Johnston.
