    Quanta Services Reports 2017 First Quarter Results

HOUSTON, May 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Quanta Services, Inc. (NYSE: PWR) today announced results for the three months ended March 31, 2017. Revenues in the first quarter of 2017 were $2.18 billion, compared to revenues of $1.71 billion in the first quarter of 2016, and net income attributable to common stock was $48.3 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, compared to net income attributable to common stock of $20.5 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2016. Adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock (a non-GAAP measure) was $0.39 for the first quarter of 2017 compared to $0.23 for the first quarter of 2016.  As described further below, certain items negatively impacted diluted and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock for the first quarter of 2017 by $0.03 per share.

"Our first quarter results were in line with our expectations and put us on track to achieve our full year outlook. We continue to believe we are entering a renewed multiyear up-cycle across our operations. Our end markets are strengthening and we believe there is opportunity for our backlog to achieve record levels over the coming quarters," said Duke Austin, president and chief executive officer of Quanta Services. "Quanta's differentiation in the marketplace continues to increase as we strengthen our core business and extend our solutions offerings through new service lines and geographic enhancement.  With our core management team in place, we are actively expanding our communications infrastructure services operations in the United States, which complement our existing Canadian and Latin American operations. Our expansion in the U.S. has been well received by current and potential customers, and we are close to executing several agreements with major service providers."

Negatively impacting the first quarter of 2017 were attorneys' fees and related expenses of approximately $4.2 million ($2.7 million net of tax), or $0.02 per diluted share attributable to common stock, associated with the Dycom Industries litigation described below.  Also negatively impacting the quarter was a $1.9 million charge to expense ($1.2 million net of tax), or $0.01 per diluted share attributable to common stock, associated with the planned sale of a construction barge.

RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Established Strategic Capital Partnership - In February 2017, Quanta closed on First Infrastructure Capital (FIC), a partnership between Quanta and select infrastructure investors. FIC provides $750 million of capital available to invest in infrastructure projects in markets served by Quanta, with the potential for additional capital from existing FIC partners. This partnership is part of our broader strategy of partnering with customers and providing fully integrated, differentiated infrastructure solutions by leveraging Quanta's operational excellence, strong execution capabilities and project finance expertise.
  • Expanding U.S. Communications Infrastructure Services - In March 2017, Quanta announced the resolution of litigation initiated by Dycom Industries (Dycom) related to the non-compete agreement entered into in connection with Quanta's disposition of certain communications construction operations to Dycom in December 2012. As a result, Quanta is unencumbered in its efforts to expand its communications infrastructure services in the United States.

Quanta completed five acquisitions during 2016.  Therefore, Quanta's results for the three months ended March 31, 2017 included these acquisitions and are compared to the pre-acquisition historical results for the three months ended March 31, 2016.

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 2017. The following forward-looking statements are based on current expectations, and actual results may differ materially.

Quanta is increasing its full year 2017 revenue expectation to range between $8.1 billion and $8.6 billion. Quanta continues to expect diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock to be $1.52 to $1.77 and now expects adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock (a non-GAAP measure) for the full year 2017 to be $1.82 to $2.07. See the attached table for a reconciliation of estimated adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock to estimated GAAP diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock for the full year 2017.

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

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 March 31, 2017, December 31, 2016 and March 31, 2016, 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 Attributable to Common Stock

For the Three Months Ended March 31, 2017 and 2016

(In thousands, except per share information)

(Unaudited)

 

The non-GAAP measure of adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock, when used in connection with diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock, 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 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; and (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. Because adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock, as defined, excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income attributable to common stock, adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock 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 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. See table on the following page.

The income tax impact of adjustments that are subject to tax is determined using the incremental statutory tax rate of the jurisdictions to which each adjustment relates for the respective periods.

(c)

Both diluted and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock for the first quarter of 2017 were impacted by attorneys' fees and related expenses of approximately $4.2 million ($2.7 million net of tax), or $0.02 per share, associated with the Dycom Industries litigation and a $1.9 million charge ($1.2 million net of tax), or $0.01 per share, to expense associated with the planned sale of a construction barge in order to record the asset to its estimated fair market value.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measure

Estimated Diluted Earnings Per Share Attributable to Common Stock and

Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share Attributable to Common Stock

For the Full Year 2017

(In thousands, except per share information)

 

The non-GAAP measure of adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock, when used in connection with diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock, 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 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 and (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. Because adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock, as defined, excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income attributable to common stock, adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock 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 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.
