During 2014, its customers included AT&T Inc.; CenturyLink, Inc.; Comcast Corporation; Verizon Communications, Inc.; and Time Warner Cable Inc. Seasonality The company’s operations are impacted by extended periods of adverse weather which are more likely to occur during the winter season, impacting its second and third quarters. Also, a disproportionate percentage of paid holidays fall within its second quarter, which decreases the number of available workdays. Additionally, its customer premise equipment installation activities for cable providers historically decrease around the calendar year-end holidays as their customers generally require less activity during this period. As a result of these factors, the company experiences reduced revenue and profitability in the second and/or third quarters of its year. History Dycom Industries, Inc. was founded in 1969. The company incorporated in the state of Florida in 1969.
