- 1Q19 adjusted EPS of US$1.14 up 48% year-over-year and above the mid-point of guidance.

Jacobs' Chair and CEO, Steve Demetriou, commented, "We have demonstrated a track record of disciplined capital deployment by accelerating profitable growth and scale through the acquisition of CH2M, transforming our portfolio with the announced divestiture of our Energy, Chemicals, and Resources business and opportunistically buying back shares - all while on track to exceed our 3-year financial commitments made in 2016. Furthermore, we are excited about future opportunities for strong profitable growth in the company's continuing lines of business and look forward to communicating our new Jacobs strategy at the upcoming investor day."
The company continues to expect the sale of its Energy, Chemicals and Resources (ECR) business to close by June 30th.
