Construction consultancy firm, Hill International, has announced that its total revenue for the first quarter of 2017 was $107.6m, a decrease of 19.9% compared to the first quarter of 2016. 

Consulting fee revenue for the first quarter was $95.9m, a 17.7% decrease from last year's first quarter, a company statement said.

Lower consulting fee revenue was driven primarily by declines of 36.7% and 41.5% in Hill's Middle East and Latin America operations, respectively, partially offset by an increase of 16.9% in the US operations.

Operating loss for the first quarter was $500,000 compared to an operating profit of $2.7m in the prior year's first quarter. 

Net loss from continuing operations was reported as $1.4m, compared to net earnings from continuing operations of $2.3m during the prior year's first quarter. 

Net loss from discontinued operations for the first quarter was $5.7m, compared to a net loss from discontinued operations of $900,000, in the first quarter of 2016. 

Net loss for the first quarter was $7.1m compared to net earnings of $1.5m, in the first quarter of 2016. 

Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA) for the first quarter was $1m compared to EBITDA of $4.6m in the first quarter of 2016.

Unusual expenses totalling $1.7m, adversely impacted Hill's profitability during the first quarter of 2017, according to the company statement.
