(EDGAR Online via COMTEX) -- Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations. General The purpose of this Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations ("MD&A") is to provide a narrative analysis explaining the reasons for material changes in the Company's (i) financial condition from the most recent fiscal year-end to March 27, 2020 and (ii) results of operations during the current fiscal period(s) as compared to the corresponding period(s) of the preceding fiscal year. In order to better understand such changes, readers of this MD&A should also read: The discussion of the critical and significant accounting policies used by the Company in preparing its consolidated financial statements. The most current discussion of our critical accounting policies appears in Item 7, Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations of our 2019 Form 10-K, and the most current discussion of our significant accounting policies appears in Note 2- Significant Accounting Polices in Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements of our 2019 Form 10-K. See also Note 13- Revenue Accounting for Contracts and Adoption of ASC 606 for a discussion of our updated policies related to revenue recognition; The Company's fiscal 2019 audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our 2019 Form 10-K; and Item 7, Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations included in our 2019 Form 10-K. In addition to historical information, this MD&A and other parts of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements are statements that do not directly relate to any historical or current fact. When used herein, words such as "expects," "anticipates," "believes," "seeks," "estimates," "plans," "intends," "future," "will," "would," "could," "can," "may," and similar words are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Examples of forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements we make concerning the potential effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business, financial condition and results of operations and our expectations as to our future growth, prospects, financial outlook and business strategy for fiscal 2020 or future fiscal years. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. Although such statements are based on management's current estimates and expectations, and/or currently available competitive, financial, and economic data, forward-looking statements are inherently uncertain, and you should not place undue reliance on such statements as actual results may differ materially. We caution the reader that there are a variety of risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from what is contained, projected or implied by our forward-looking statements. Such factors include the magnitude, timing, duration and ultimate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and any resulting economic downturn on our results, prospects and opportunities. Such impact includes, but is not limited to, the possible reduction in demand for certain of our services and the delay or abandonment of ongoing or anticipated projects due to the financial condition of our clients and suppliers or to governmental budget constraints; the inability of our clients to meet their payment obligations in a timely manner or at all; potential issues and risks related to a significant portion of our employees working remotely; illness, travel restrictions and other workforce disruptions that could negatively affect our supply chain and our ability to timely and satisfactorily complete our clients' projects; difficulties associated with hiring additional employees or replacing any furloughed employees; increased volatility in the capital markets that may affect our ability to access sources of liquidity on acceptable pricing or borrowing terms or at all; and the inability of governments in certain of the countries in which we operate to effectively mitigate the financial or other impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on their economies and workforces and our operations therein. The foregoing factors and potential future developments are inherently uncertain, unpredictable and, in many cases, beyond our control. For a description of these and additional factors that may occur that could cause actual results to differ from our forward-looking statements, see those listed and discussed in Item 1A, Risk Factors included in our 2019 Form 10-K and this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. We undertake no obligation to release publicly any revisions or updates to any forward-looking statements. We encourage you to read carefully the risk factors, as well as the financial and business disclosures contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and in other documents we file from time to time with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). Impact of COVID-19 on Our Business On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization characterized the outbreak of the novel coronavirus ("COVID-19") as a global pandemic and recommended certain containment and mitigation measures. On March 13, 2020, the United States declared a national emergency concerning the outbreak, and the vast majority of states and many

Page 35

municipalities have declared public health emergencies or taken similar actions. Along with these declarations, there have been extraordinary and wide-ranging actions taken by international, federal, state and local public health and governmental authorities to contain and combat the outbreak of COVID-19 in regions across the United States and around the world. These actions include quarantines and "stay-at-home" or "shelter-in-place" orders, social distancing measures, travel restrictions, school closures and similar mandates for many individuals in order to substantially restrict daily activities and orders for many businesses to curtail or cease normal operations unless their work is critical, essential or life-sustaining. In addition, governments and central banks in the United States and other countries in which we operate have enacted fiscal and monetary stimulus measures to counteract the impacts of COVID-19.

We are a company operating in a critical infrastructure industry, as defined by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Consistent with international, federal, state and local requirements to date, we currently continue to materially operate. In addition, demand for certain of our services, including those supporting health care relief efforts relating to COVID-19, could increase as a result of COVID-19. Notwithstanding our continued critical operations, it is expected that the COVID-19 may have further adverse impacts on our continued operations. Accordingly, we are reducing spending more broadly across the Company, only proceeding with operating and capital spending that is critical. We have also ceased all non-essential hiring and reduced discretionary expenses, including certain employee benefits and compensation. Looking ahead, we have developed contingency plans to reduce costs further if the situation deteriorates. We will continue to actively monitor the situation and may take further actions that alter our business operations as may be necessary or appropriate for the health and safety of employees, contractors, customers, suppliers or others or as required by international, federal, state or local authorities.

Based on current estimates, we expect the impact of COVID-19 to primarily occur in the third fiscal quarter of 2020, which impact may continue into the fourth fiscal quarter of 2020 or beyond. Although this business disruption is expected to be temporary, significant uncertainty exists concerning the magnitude, duration and impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, including with regard to the effects on our customers and customer demand for our services. Accordingly, actual results for future fiscal periods could differ materially versus current expectations and current results and financial condition discussed herein may not be indicative of future operating results and trends.
