Very strong results across the board for Dycom, with spending from its top customers only further accelerating. We’re not surprised that FQ3 guidance came in slightly ahead of expectations, as many investors had viewed their initial guidance as conservative. We are encouraged to see organic growth re-accelerating in FQ4 to the mid-teens, with its acquired Goodman asset contributing $15MM of expected revenue (up from $13.4MM in FQ2). Dycom also procured new customer awards in the quarter from AT&T (T), Comcast (CMCSA), CenturyLink (CTL) and Windstream Holdings (WIN) to support further growth. Dycom also repurchased $25MM of shares during FQ2 and authorized an additional $75MM over the next 18 months, giving Dycom $150MM of incremental repurchase authorization through August 2018
