At the 2017 Waterfront Conference on May 10, the Waterfront Alliance Previews the Region’s First-Ever Harbor Scorecard How protected are our coastal communities and our infrastructure? Are waterways meeting Clean Water Act standards? Where are opportunities for public access to the water? Turn to the Harbor Scorecard for answers and action, neighborhood by neighborhood NEW YORK, May 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- At this year’s Waterfront Conference, titled “Measuring Our Harbor: Strong, Healthy, and Open,” the Waterfront Alliance will preview the region’s first-ever Harbor Scorecard. Comprehensive and user-friendly, the Scorecard compiles research in public access, ecology, and resiliency for a neighborhood-by-neighborhood evaluation of the waterfronts of New York City and northern New Jersey. Distilling extensive research into an easy-to-use tool, the Harbor Scorecard will be previewed at the Waterfront Alliance’s annual Waterfront Conference on Wednesday, May 10, and rolled out three weeks later in time for the start of hurricane season. The Waterfront Conference takes place aboard the Hornblower Infinity, dockside at Hudson River Park, Pier 40, in the morning, and cruising New York Harbor throughout the afternoon. Featured speakers include Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez, Member of Congress; Lauren Brand, U.S. Department of Transportation, Maritime Administration; Hon. Ras J. Baraka, Mayor, City of Newark; and Alicia Glen, Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development, City of New York, along with dozens of expert panelists and workshop leaders, and hundreds of policy-makers, waterfront advocates, and professionals. Hornblower Cruises & Events is the venue sponsor. For the third year, Arcadis is the premier sponsor of the Waterfront Conference, and for the second year, the sponsor of Arcadis Waterfront Scholars, a program that invites more than 70 undergraduate and graduate students to participate in the conference and engage with professional mentors. On May 10, Arcadis Global Lead for Water Management Piet Dircke will discuss the Harbor Scorecard in a global context using the Arcadis Sustainable Cities Water Index, which assesses the water resources of 50 cities around the world. “New York City is making strides in protecting its coastline, and the Waterfront Conference is an important step in bringing together the best minds to help benchmark our harbors and waterways,” said Mr. Dircke. “Waiting until the next big storm to create safeguards against future disasters is not a sound resiliency strategy.” “As the Waterfront Alliance begins our milestone tenth year of work, we have put together the Harbor Scorecard, an essential tool to take stock of progress along our waterways,” said John Boulé, vice-chair of the Waterfront Alliance and senior vice president at Dewberry, where he is business manager for New York operations. “While we’ve got a lot to be proud of, it’s clear that we need to do better, and the Harbor Scorecard will give citizens and policy-makers alike the information they need to act.” “The Waterfront Alliance cannot solve all of New York City’s waterfront and sea level rise issues, but its Harbor Scorecard will indicate whether we are moving in the right direction, becoming more resilient while at the same time providing more and better access to the waterfront,” said Klaus Jacob of Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. “Right now, New York City is making decisions that will affect clean water investments for the next generation,” said Larry Levine, a senior attorney at Natural Resources Defense Council. “Thanks to the Clean Water Act, our harbor is cleaner than it used to be. But far too often the water is still too polluted to touch. Sewage overflows still foul our waterways after it rains, making them unsafe for eight million New Yorkers to use recreationally. The Harbor Scorecard will provide a call to action for local, state and federal officials, shining a light on where we need to invest in our infrastructure for a cleaner, healthier future.” Learn more about the Waterfront Conference and purchase tickets ($150 regular ticket; $75 government agencies and nonprofits; $50 students). Registration and breakfast is 8am to 8:45am; the boat is dockside at Pier 40, Hudson River Park until 1pm; the afternoon harbor cruise returns at 5pm.

EDMONTON, ALBERTA and NEW YORK, NEW YORK--(Marketwired - Feb. 23, 2017) - Stantec (TSX:STN)(NYSE:STN) closed fiscal year 2016 with a 49.5% increase in gross revenue when compared to the end of 2015, primarily due to contributions from five strategic acquisitions completed in the year. The Company also achieved a 9.8% increase in EBITDA and a 15.5% increase in adjusted EBITDA year over year. When comparing Q4 16 to Q4 15, gross revenue increased 74.7% mainly due to contributions from acquisitions completed in 2015 and 2016 and a 2.2% increase in organic revenue in the Infrastructure business operating unit. EBITDA increased 51.8%, and adjusted EBITDA increased 41.3% due to an increase in gross margin as a percentage of net revenue. Net income increased 16.2%; diluted earnings per share decreased 3.7%; and adjusted diluted earnings per share increased 2.9%. Annual results were primarily impacted by the acquisition of MWH Global, Inc. (MWH), the completion of a common share offering, and the renegotiation of Stantec's credit facilities. Adjusted EBITDA for 2016 was affected by a decrease in gross margin as a percentage of net revenue. In addition, administrative and marketing expenses increased due to MWH-related acquisition costs, professional fees, integration-related administration labor expenses, severance costs, and retention and merit payments to retain key employees during integration periods following acquisitions. Net income and diluted earnings per share were impacted by increases in net interest expense, amortization of intangible assets, the number of shares outstanding, and a higher effective income tax rate. The year 2016 was a history-making one for Stantec. In May, the Company completed its largest-ever acquisition--MWH. Complementing this were strategic acquisitions of four other companies: Bury Holdings, Inc.; VOA Associates, Inc.; Edwards & Zuck; and Architecture / Tkalcic Bengert. Each organization adds strength in key regions and sectors. In particular, the MWH acquisition greatly expands Stantec's global reach, adds construction to its service offerings, and strengthens the Company's work in infrastructure design, environmental services, and the water sector. As of January 1, 2017, in recognition of MWH's well-respected water infrastructure business and Stantec's long history in the sector, Stantec created a new business operating unit: Water. "Water infrastructure design has been core to Stantec since we began. With the addition of MWH, we now offer top-tier design expertise to water clients around the world," says Stantec president and CEO, Bob Gomes. "Creating a separate business operating unit for Water provides a higher level of leadership and visibility and positions us well for growth." Within Stantec's existing Consulting Services business operating units, growth in 2016 was most significant in Infrastructure, Environmental Services, and Buildings, largely due to contributions from acquisitions. Infrastructure saw a gross revenue increase of 58.8% when comparing 2016 to 2015. Gross revenue for the Environmental Services business operating unit increased 12.4% in 2016 compared to 2015. The Buildings business operating unit achieved a 6.9% increase in gross revenue. Gross revenue for Energy & Resources remained stable year over year and increased by 23.0% when comparing Q4 16 to Q4 15. The Infrastructure business operating unit grew organically by 3.7% in 2016, partly offsetting the organic revenue retraction in the Energy & Resources, Environmental Services, and Buildings business operating units. Overall, in 2016, organic gross revenue retracted by 5.6%. Construction Services earned $645.2 million in gross revenue since the MWH acquisition on May 6, 2016. On February 22, 2017, Stantec declared a cash dividend of $0.125 per share--an increase of 11.1% over last quarter--payable on April 13, 2017, to shareholders of record on March 31, 2017. On Thursday, February 23, at 2:00 PM MST (4:00 PM EST), Stantec's 2016 fourth quarter and year end conference call and slideshow presentation will be broadcast live and archived in their entirety in the Investors section of stantec.com.
