Backlog Increases 19% to Record $9.63 Billion

GAAP Diluted EPS of $0.43, Includes $0.13 of Net Charges

Adjusted EPS Grows 33% to $0.61

HOUSTON, Nov. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Quanta Services, Inc. (NYSE: PWR) today announced results for the three and nine months ended Sept. 30, 2014. Revenues in the third quarter of 2014 were $2.17 billion compared to revenues of $1.65 billion in the third quarter of 2013. Net income attributable to common stock was $94.6 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2014, versus net income attributable to common stock of $92.9 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2013.  Included in net income attributable to common stock for the third quarter of 2014 was a $52.5 million ($32.3 million net of tax) charge to provision for long-term contract receivable associated with an electric power infrastructure services project completed in 2012. The net impact of this provision on Quanta's results for the third quarter of 2014 was a reduction of $0.15 per diluted share. Additionally, included in net income attributable to common stock for the third quarters of 2014 and 2013 were $4.9 million and $6.6 million of income, respectively, or $0.02 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2014 and $0.03 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2013, from the release of income tax contingencies. Adjusted diluted earnings per share (a non-GAAP measure), adjusted for these and other items, was $0.61 for the third quarter of 2014 compared to $0.46 for the third quarter of 2013.

"We achieved record backlog of $9.6 billion in the third quarter. We continue to see opportunities for sizeable energy infrastructure projects, as reflected by Nalcor Energy's recent award to Quanta of the largest high voltage electric transmission contract in Quanta's history," said Jim O'Neil, president and chief executive officer of Quanta Services. "High levels of customer spending, coupled with our continued solid project execution, translated into greater than 30% growth in both revenues and adjusted EPS during the quarter. We anticipate that positive trends will continue, supporting our ongoing expectation for double digit growth opportunities through at least 2015."

Revenues for the first nine months of 2014 were $5.80 billion compared to revenues of $4.71 billion in the first nine months of 2013. Net income attributable to common stock was $230.1 million, or $1.05 per diluted share, in the first nine months of 2014, versus net income attributable to common stock of $235.2 million, or $1.10 per diluted share, in the first nine months of 2013. Included in net income attributable to common stock for the first nine months of 2014 is the previously mentioned charge to provision for long-term contract receivable associated with an electric power infrastructure services project completed in 2012 as well as $38.8 million ($25.8 million net of tax) of incremental selling, general and administrative expense recorded in the first quarter of 2014, as a result of an arbitration decision related to a contract dispute on a 2010 directional drilling project. The net impact of these items on Quanta's results for the first nine months of 2014 was a $0.26 reduction in diluted earnings per share. Also included in the results for the first nine months of 2014 was $4.9 million of income, or $0.02 per diluted share benefit, from the previously mentioned release of income tax contingencies. Included in the results for the first nine months of 2013 were non-cash stock-based compensation expense of approximately $4.3 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, related to the retirement of Quanta's former chairman effective May 23, 2013 and the previously mentioned benefit from the release of income tax contingencies of $6.6 million, or $0.03 per diluted share. Adjusted diluted earnings per share was $1.47 for the first nine months of 2014 compared to $1.22 for the first nine months of 2013.

Adjusted diluted earnings per share is calculated as GAAP diluted earnings per share before acquisition and integration costs, as well as non-cash items such as amortization of intangible assets and non-cash compensation expense, and certain other items that affect comparability of results between periods, such as the previously mentioned provision for long-term contract receivable and arbitration expense, all net of tax, as well as discrete tax items. See the attached table for a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to the reported GAAP measures.

Quanta completed eight acquisitions in the first nine months of 2014 and three acquisitions in the fourth quarter of 2013.  Therefore, the results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 include these acquisitions from their respective acquisition dates and are compared to the pre-acquisition historical results of Quanta for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013.

RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Selected by Nalcor Energy for Labrador Island Link HVdc Transmission Project - In August 2014, Nalcor Energy selected Valard Construction (Valard), a Quanta Services company, to install transmission infrastructure for the Labrador-Island Transmission Link project. Valard's scope of work on the project includes the installation of approximately 684 miles (1,100 kilometers) of 350-kilovolt overhead high-voltage direct current (HVdc) transmission line running from the Muskrat Falls Hydroelectric Generating Facility in central Labrador to Newfoundland's Avalon Peninsula. Project construction is underway with expected completion during the summer of 2017.
  • Selected for Chino Hills Segment of Tehachapi Renewable Transmission Project - In August 2014, Southern California Edison selected PAR Electrical Contractors, Inc. (PAR), a Quanta Services company, for the 500-kilovolt underground project for the Chino Hills segment of the Tehachapi Renewable Transmission Project. PAR's scope of work under the contract is the civil package, which includes all infrastructure installation, road borings, man holes, steel risers and right of way restoration. Quanta anticipates completing the project during the first quarter of 2016.

OUTLOOK

The overall outlook for Quanta's business is positive. However, regulatory, permitting and other challenges may impact project timing. Therefore, Quanta's financial outlook for revenues, margins and earnings reflects management's efforts to balance these uncertainties with the company's backlog of ongoing work and the opportunities expected to materialize during the fourth quarter of 2014. The following forward-looking statements are based on current expectations, and actual results may differ materially.

Quanta expects revenues for the fourth quarter of 2014 to range between $1.95 billion and $2.05 billion and diluted earnings per share to be $0.46 to $0.48.   Included in our estimate of GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2014 is a net tax benefit of approximately $0.02 per share associated with the release of certain tax contingencies due to the expiration of certain statute of limitations periods during the fourth quarter. Quanta expects adjusted diluted earnings per share (a non-GAAP measure) for the fourth quarter of 2014 to be $0.50 to $0.52. This non-GAAP measure is estimated on a basis similar to the calculations of historical adjusted diluted earnings per share presented in this press release. Amortization of intangibles and non-cash stock-based compensation expense are forecasted to be approximately $9.5 million and $7.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2014. 

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 GAAP to non-GAAP measures not included in the table attached to this press release can be found on the company's website at www.quantaservices.com in the "Investors & Media" section.

(b) Included in operating income for the Oil and Gas Infrastructure Services segment for the first nine months of 2014 is the impact of a $38.8 million expense associated with an arbitration decision related to a contract dispute on a 2010 directional drilling project for the National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago.

 

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, master service agreements and licensing 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 tables present Quanta's total backlog by reportable segment as of September 30, 2014, September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2013, 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

For the Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014 and 2013

(In thousands, except per share information)

(Unaudited)


The non-GAAP measure of adjusted diluted earnings per share is provided to enable investors to evaluate performance excluding the effects of items that management believes impact the comparability of operating results between periods. 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, factors influencing 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 acquisition activity ongoing during the period; (iv) income tax contingency releases vary period to period depending on the level of reserves for uncertain tax positions and the expiration dates under various federal and state statute of limitation periods; (v) the charge to provision for long-term contract receivable can vary from period to period depending on management's ongoing assessment of the recoverability of the underlying asset; and (vi) the expense associated with the arbitration decision is not a regularly occurring operational item.

(a) The amounts for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 reflect the elimination of the charge to provision for long-term contract receivable associated with an electric power infrastructure services project completed in 2012.

(b) The amount for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 reflects the elimination of expense recorded in the first quarter of 2014 resulting from an arbitration decision associated with a contract dispute on a 2010 directional drilling project.

(c) These amounts reflect the elimination of tax benefits primarily associated with the expiration of various federal and state tax statute of limitations periods during the third quarters of 2014 and 2013. Such benefits are subject to significant uncertainty surrounding their amount and the timing of their release.

(d) The amount for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 includes non-cash stock-based compensation expense of approximately $4.3 million related to the accelerated vesting of equity-based awards associated with the retirement of Quanta's former chairman effective May 23, 2013.
