HOUSTON, Nov. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Quanta Services, Inc. (NYSE: PWR) today announced results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016. Revenues in the third quarter of 2016 were $2.04 billion and net income from continuing operations attributable to common stock was $73.1 million, or $0.47 per diluted share.  Revenues in the third quarter of 2015 were $1.94 billion and net income from continuing operations attributable to common stock was $43.2 million, or $0.23 per diluted share. Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations (a non-GAAP measure) was $0.55 for the three months ended September 30, 2016 compared to $0.30 for the three months ended September 30, 2015.

"Our third quarter results were solid, driven by sound execution in our base electric power business and the addition of numerous large pipeline projects that moved into construction during the third quarter. Importantly, our expectation for a much improved second half of the year remains intact, and we believe our financial results are beginning to demonstrate the earnings potential of the company," said Duke Austin, president and chief executive officer of Quanta Services. "Positive end market drivers are firmly in place, Quanta's differentiated solutions continue to strengthen our competitive position and we expect continued strong demand for our services as we look to 2017."

RECENT HIGHLIGHT

  • Joint Venture Selected to Construct the Atlantic Coast Pipeline - In September 2016, Spring Ridge Constructors, LLC, a joint venture that includes Price Gregory International, Inc., a Quanta Services company, was selected to construct the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, a proposed 600-mile natural gas pipeline planned to run from Harris County, W. VA to Robeson County, N.C. Pending receipt of the required regulatory approvals, construction of the project is expected to begin in late 2017 and completion is expected in the second half of 2019. This project is not yet reflected in backlog, primarily due to its ongoing permitting and approval process.

RESULTS FOR THE NINE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2016 AND 2015

Revenues in the nine months ended September 30, 2016 were $5.55 billion compared to revenues of $5.67 billion in the first nine months of 2015. Net income from continuing operations attributable to common stock was $110.2 million, or $0.70 per diluted share, in the nine months ended September 30, 2016 compared to net income from continuing operations attributable to common stock of $122.9 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, in the first nine months of 2015. Included in Quanta's operating results for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 were losses of approximately $54.8 million ($33.4 million net of tax, or $0.21 per diluted share) on a power plant construction project in Alaska that resulted from ongoing engineering and production issues. Included in Quanta's operating results for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 were losses of $45.0 million ($29.8 million net of tax, or $0.14 per diluted share) related to the same project in Alaska and an electric transmission project in Canada.

Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations (a non-GAAP measure) was $0.96 for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 compared to $0.81 for the first nine months of 2015. The adjusted diluted earnings per share measures used in this earnings release are calculated as GAAP diluted earnings per share before acquisition and integration costs, amortization of intangible assets, non-cash compensation expense, and certain other items that affect comparability of results between periods. See the attached table for a reconciliation of adjusted diluted earnings per share (a non-GAAP measure) to GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015.

Quanta completed five acquisitions during the first nine months of 2016 and one acquisition during the fourth quarter of 2015.  Therefore, Quanta's results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 included these acquisitions from the respective acquisition dates and are compared to the pre-acquisition historical results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015.

OUTLOOK

The long-term outlook for Quanta's business is positive. However, weather, regulatory, permitting, project timing, execution challenges and other factors have impacted the company's historical results, and may impact Quanta's future financial results. Therefore, Quanta's financial outlook for revenues, margins and earnings reflects management's effort to properly align these uncertainties with the backlog that the company is executing on and the opportunities that are expected to materialize during the remainder of 2016. The following forward-looking statements are based on current expectations, and actual results may differ materially.

As a result of several factors, Quanta has adjusted its full year financial expectations for 2016. First, several items that impacted results in the third quarter have also affected our full year financial expectations. These items include a $2.3 million endowment contribution to establish a business relationship and a workforce development program with a university, $3 million in incremental costs associated with the power plant project in Alaska, and a meaningfully higher tax rate for the third quarter and now a higher expected tax rate for the year. The higher tax rate is partly due to a lower proportion of income before taxes from international jurisdictions, which are generally taxed at lower statutory rates. In particular, delays on a Latin American concession project is expected to push more of the low tax income into 2017. Further, as part of filing our 2015 federal tax return, we had changes in estimates related to amounts qualifying for the domestic manufacturing tax deduction. Against our original estimates for the last six months of the year, these items added up to approximately $0.06 in the aggregate.

In addition, the anticipated timing of revenues and corresponding income contributions associated with certain projects in progress has shifted from 2016 to 2017, primarily due to permitting delays. As a result of this and the previously discussed items, Quanta expects revenues for the full year 2016 to range between $7.65 and $7.75 billion and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations to be $1.17 to $1.22. Quanta expects adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations (a non-GAAP measure) for the full year 2016 to be $1.51 to $1.56. See the attached table for a reconciliation of estimated adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations to estimated GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the full year 2016.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The non-GAAP measures in this press release and on Quanta's website are provided to enable investors, analysts and management to evaluate Quanta's performance excluding the effects of certain items that management believes impact the comparability of operating results between reporting periods. In addition, management believes these measures are useful in comparing Quanta's operating results with those of its competitors. These measures should be used in addition to, and not in lieu of, results prepared in conformity with GAAP. Reconciliations of other non-GAAP to GAAP measures not included in the tables attached to this press release can be found on the company's website at www.quantaservices.com in the "Investors & Media" section.

Backlog is not a term recognized under United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP); however, it is a common measurement used in the industry. Quanta's methodology for determining backlog may not be comparable to the methodologies used by other companies.  Quanta's backlog represents the amount of consolidated revenue that it expects to realize from future work under construction contracts, long-term maintenance contracts and master service agreements. These estimates include revenues from the remaining portion of firm orders not yet completed and on which work has not yet begun, as well as revenues from change orders, renewal options, and funded and unfunded portions of government contracts to the extent that they are reasonably expected to occur. For purposes of calculating backlog, Quanta includes 100% of estimated revenues attributable to consolidated joint ventures and variable interest entities. The following table presents Quanta's total backlog by reportable segment as of September 30, 2016, December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2015, along with an estimate of the backlog amounts expected to be realized within 12 months of each balance sheet date (in millions):

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share from Continuing Operations 

 (In thousands, except per share information)

(Unaudited)

 

The non-GAAP measure of adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations, when used in connection with diluted earnings per share, is intended to provide useful information to investors and analysts as they evaluate Quanta's performance. Management believes that the exclusion of certain items from net income from continuing operations attributable to common stock enables it to more effectively evaluate Quanta's operations period over period and better identify operating trends that may not otherwise be apparent. As to certain of the items below, (i) amortization of intangible assets is impacted by Quanta's acquisition activity, which can cause these amounts to vary from period to period; (ii) non-cash stock-based compensation expense may vary due to acquisition activity, changes in the estimated fair value of performance-based awards, forfeiture rates, accelerated vesting and amounts granted during the period; (iii) acquisition and integration costs vary period to period depending on the level of Quanta's ongoing acquisition activity; (iv) severance costs related to the departure of Quanta's former president and chief executive officer and severance and restructuring costs associated with certain operations primarily within Quanta's Oil and Gas Infrastructure segment are not regularly occurring items; and (v) the cumulative revaluation of certain deferred tax liabilities associated with an Alberta provincial income tax law change is not a regularly occurring item. Because adjusted diluted earnings per share, as defined, excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income from continuing operations attributable to common stock, adjusted diluted earnings per share as presented in this press release may or may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. The most comparable GAAP financial measure, net income from continuing operations attributable to common stock, and information reconciling the GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures are included below.  Reconciliations of other non-GAAP to GAAP measures not included in the table below can be found on the company's website at www.quantaservices.com in the "Investors & Media" section.
