PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., Sept. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Dycom Industries, Inc. (NYSE: DY) announced today that its Board of Directors has approved a change in the Company's fiscal year end from July to January. Beginning with a six month transitional period ending January 27, 2018, the Company's fiscal year will end on the last Saturday of January. The Company will file a transition report on Form 10-K containing audited financial statements for the six month period from July 30, 2017 to January 27, 2018.
