Cash flow from operating activities, excluding the U.S. nuclear projects, totaled an excess of $800 million, representing a solid cash flow quarter for the remainder of business. Adjusted EBITDA totaled $337 million or 10% of revenues for the fourth quarter compared to $279 million or 9.3% of revenues in the comparable 2013 period.

The company provided earnings guidance for the year 2015. The company marginally updated 2015 revenue guidance to $14.4 billion to $15.2 billion an indicative increase of 14% over 2014 revenue base based on the midpoint of guidance. This revenue growth reflects the continued activity and ramp-up of several large U.S. projects in backlog and the increase on year-over-year opening backlog. The company expects full year 2015 income tax expense to be in the 32% to 34% range. The effective rate increase reflects a greater portion of income being generated in higher tax jurisdictions, specifically the United States.
