Each year our team at SingerLewak works over the Summer to compile financial benchmarking for our Construction Industry client base, located primarily in Southern California. The database incorporates data from several dozen contractors. We use that information to create summary reports providing an overview of the construction financial climate in our region.
The 2010 financial information compiled for these reports includes balance sheets, income statements and backlog data as well as calculating and presenting several metrics from this information. The resulting data is of interest on many levels and for many groups of people within our industry. That being said, it is only for top level analysis and is intended to foster discussion within management teams. It is not intended to be used for any credit decisions or anything of that nature. There are many interesting data points and trends to be noted within these reports. I will not delve into an analysis of the information. Instead I will share it here and be available, as always, for any discussion, questions and/or comments you may have. We break down our data by General Contractor and Subcontractor and within each of those categories various revenue level breakpoints. We're proud to share this information and hope you find value in it…click on the links in the preceding sentence to access.
