HOUSTON, Aug. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Quanta Services, Inc. (NYSE: PWR) today announced results for the three months ended June 30, 2017. Revenues in the second quarter of 2017 were $2.20 billion, compared to revenues of $1.79 billion in the second quarter of 2016, and net income attributable to common stock was $63.8 million in the second quarter of 2017, or $0.41 per diluted share, compared to net income attributable to common stock of $16.6 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2016.

"We remain on track to achieve our full-year outlook and believe momentum is building for continued growth in 2018. Larger electric transmission and pipeline projects are moving forward, as evidenced by our recent contracts for the Wind Catcher Generation Tie Line powerline project and the Line 3 Replacement Program pipeline project. We also booked approximately $150 million of new communications work during the second quarter, the majority of which is in the United States," said Duke Austin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Quanta Services. "Further, the recent acquisition of Stronghold expands our industrial services solutions for the energy industry, enhances our recurring revenues and provides us with cross-selling opportunities. We continue to believe that our innovative solutions and ability to safely execute projects while providing cost certainty, along with positive end market fundamentals, provide the opportunity for multi-year growth."

Negatively impacting the second quarter of 2017 was a $2.4 million charge to expense ($1.7 million net of tax), or $0.01 per diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock, associated with a charitable contribution made in connection with the formation and funding of a non-profit line school.   Also impacting the quarter were acquisition and integration charges of $4.7 million ($3.0 million net of tax), or $0.02 per diluted share attributable to common stock, primarily associated with the acquisitions further discussed below. 

RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Chosen for the Wind Catcher Generation Tie Line - In July 2017, American Electric Power (AEP) chose Quanta to provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) solutions for the Wind Catcher Generation Tie Line (Wind Catcher Tie Line). The anticipated contract value for this project makes it the largest project award in Quanta's history. The Wind Catcher Tie Line consists of approximately 350 miles of a single circuit 765kV power line and two new substations located between Guymon and Tulsa, Oklahoma. Quanta will provide turnkey EPC services for the entire project and has begun early-phase project support services. Subject to AEP obtaining required state and federal regulatory approvals, Quanta expects construction to begin in the latter part of 2018, with completion expected in late 2020. Quanta has yet to determine whether the project will be included in third quarter 2017 backlog.
  • Selected for Line 3 Replacement Program in Canada - In July 2017, Quanta was selected by Enbridge Pipelines Inc. for two spreads of the Canadian section of the Line 3 Replacement Program. Quanta's scope of work includes the construction and installation of approximately 168 miles (270 kilometers) of new 36-inch diameter crude oil mainline pipe, which will begin in Hardisty, Alberta and continue into the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. Quanta's construction of the project is expected to begin in August 2017 and is anticipated to continue through 2019.
  • Booked Approximately $150 Million of Communications Work - During the second quarter of 2017, Quanta booked approximately $150 million of new work for several major North American communications companies, with the majority of the work to be performed in the United States. Quanta's scope of work on these projects includes long-haul fiber and fiber-to-the-home deployments and is expected to be performed over the next few years.
  • Acquired Stronghold - In July 2017, Quanta acquired Stronghold, Ltd. and Stronghold Specialty, Ltd. (Stronghold), a leading specialized services company that provides high pressure and critical path solutions to the downstream and midstream energy markets. The transaction consideration consisted of an upfront payment of approximately $450 million, comprised of $360 million of cash and 2.7 million shares of Quanta common stock, with a cash and stock earnout that could provide maximum additional consideration of $100 million if cumulative three-year EBITDA targets are achieved. Stronghold's financial results will be reflected in Quanta's Oil and Gas Infrastructure Services segment beginning at the date of acquisition.
  • Authorized $300 Million Stock Repurchase Program - In May 2017, Quanta's Board of Directors authorized the company to repurchase up to $300 million in shares of its outstanding common stock through June 30, 2020, through open market repurchases or privately negotiated transactions, at management's discretion. Quanta anticipates utilizing this repurchase program opportunistically from time to time as deemed appropriate, as well as to potentially offset dilution from future issuances of stock under its equity compensation programs and as consideration for future acquisitions.
  • Acquired Communications Infrastructure Services Contractor - In June 2017, Quanta acquired an established communications infrastructure services contractor that provides construction and maintenance services in the southeast and other regions of the United States.

RESULTS FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2017 AND 2016

Revenues in the first six months of 2017 were $4.38 billion, compared to revenues of $3.51 billion in the first six months of 2016, and net income attributable to common stock was $112.1 million in the first six months of 2017, or $0.72 per diluted share, compared to net income attributable to common stock of $37.1 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, in the first six months of 2016. Adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock (a non-GAAP measure) was $0.89 for the first six months of 2017 compared to $0.41 for the first six months of 2016.

In addition to the items affecting second quarter 2017 results previously discussed in this release, negatively impacting the first six months 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 litigation involving the non-compete agreement entered into in connection with Quanta's disposition of certain communications construction operations to Dycom Industries in December 2012, which was resolved during the first quarter of 2017.  Also negatively impacting the first quarter of 2017 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.

Quanta completed one acquisition during the first six months of 2017 and five acquisitions during the full year of 2016.  Therefore, Quanta's results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 included these acquisitions and are compared to the historical results for the three and six months ended June 30, 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 $8.65 billion and $9.05 billion.  Quanta expects diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock to be $1.57 to $1.75 and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock (a non-GAAP measure) for the full-year 2017 to be $1.92 to $2.10. Included in our outlook is the expectation that for the remainder of 2017, the acquired business of Stronghold is anticipated to generate approximately $240 million to $260 million of revenues and approximately $6.0 million to $7.5 million of net income attributable to common stock and to be accretive to Quanta's GAAP diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock by $0.02 to $0.03 and to non-GAAP adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock by $0.06 to $0.07. 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.

(a) Included in operating income for the Electric Power Infrastructure Services segment for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 were $30.5 million and $51.8 million of losses related to a power plant construction project in Alaska.

(b) Included in operating income for the Oil and Gas Infrastructure Services segment for the six months ended June 30, 2017 was a $1.9 million charge to expense associated with the planned sale of a construction barge. Included in operating income for the six months ended June 30, 2016 were approximately $2 million in severance and restructuring costs.

(c) Included in Corporate and Non-Allocated Costs for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 was a $2.4 million charitable contribution made in connection with the formation and funding of a non-profit line school and $4.7 million associated with acquisitions, while included in the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 were $0.8 million and $2.1 million of charges associated with acquisitions.  Also included in Corporate and Non-Allocated Costs for the six months ended June 30, 2017 was the $4.2 million associated with the litigation involving the non-compete agreement entered into in connection with Quanta's disposition of certain communications construction operations to Dycom Industries in December 2012, which was resolved in the first quarter of 2017.

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 June 30, 2017, December 31, 2016 and June 30, 2016, along with an estimate of the backlog amounts expected to be realized within 12 months of each balance sheet date (in millions):

Quanta Services, Inc. and Subsidiaries
Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measure
Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share Attributable to Common Stock
For the Three and Six Months Ended June 30, 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 Quanta's website at www.quantaservices.com in the "Investors & Media" section.
