Quotes

"When you take our two combined skill sets and put them together, the two of us have helped create more than two-thirds of all the major league sports arenas in the country" said Michael S Burke, Aecom's president chief executive
Burke told CNBC on July 29 that the purchase was part of a "core strategy to create the premier fully-integrated infrastructure firm in the world." He added that "employees and clients were asking for it."
"We rate AECOM TECHNOLOGY CORP (ACM) a BUY. This is driven by a number of strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, reasonable valuation levels, notable return on equity and increase in stockstock price during the past year. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income."
"I’ve seen tremendous change and explosive growth in the last 5-10 years, particularly on the business side of the market" said Pick, who also serves on the SouthernSouthern California Public Radio Board of Trustees
