Quanta Services Reports Third Quarter 2021 Results

Record Third Quarter Consolidated Revenues of $3.4 Billion

Strong Electric Power Infrastructure Solutions Segment Results, Including Operating Income Margin of 12.4%

Record Third Quarter GAAP and Adjusted Diluted EPS of $1.21 and $1.48

Remaining Performance Obligations of $4.4 Billion and Record Total Backlog of $17.0 Billion

HOUSTON, Nov. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Quanta Services, Inc. (NYSE: PWR) today announced results for the three months ended September 30,  2021. Revenues in the third quarter of 2021 were $3.35 billion compared to revenues of $3.02 billion in the third quarter of 2020, and net income attributable to common stock was $174.4 million, or $1.21 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2021 compared to net income attributable to common stock of $162.9 million, or $1.13 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2020. Adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock (a non-GAAP financial measure) was $1.48 for the third quarter of 2021 compared to $1.40 for the third quarter of 2020.

"Quanta produced another quarter of solid results, which included a number of record third quarter financial metrics, such as revenues, adjusted EBITDA, earnings per share and backlog. Our results were led by record revenue and strong margins from our Electric Power Infrastructure Solutions segment, which were produced by solid and safe execution, high utilization and record levels of emergency response activity," said Duke Austin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Quanta Services.

"We also completed the previously announced acquisition of Blattner, which is a premier utility-scale renewable energy infrastructure solutions provider in North America. We believe this transaction positions Quanta to be a leader in the energy transition and will transform our ability to collaborate with our customers on their energy transition initiatives. Altogether, we are increasingly excited and confident about the opportunity to drive multi-year revenue and earnings growth by supporting the long-term programmatic spend of our customers."

Certain items impacted the third quarter of 2021 results and are reflected as adjustments in the calculation of Quanta's adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock and are further described in the accompanying non-GAAP reconciliation of those non-GAAP financial measures to net income and diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock. Quanta completed four acquisitions during the first nine months of 2021 and seven acquisitions during the full year 2020. Therefore, Quanta's results include the results of the acquired businesses from their respective acquisition dates. For further information on the items that impacted comparability of 2021 and 2020, see the footnotes to the Supplemental Segment Data table and the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures in the accompanying tables.

RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Completed the Acquisition of Blattner - In October 2021, Quanta completed the acquisition of Blattner Holding Company (Blattner), one of the largest and leading utility-scale renewable energy infrastructure solutions providers in North America. Founded in 1907 and headquartered in Avon, Minnesota, Blattner provides front-end engineering, procurement, project management and construction services to leading renewable energy developers for wind, solar and energy storage projects.
  • Closed Senior Notes Offering and Amendment to Bank Credit Agreement - In September 2021, Quanta issued $1.50 billion aggregate principal amount of senior notes, with an aggregate weighted average interest rate of 2.12%, receiving aggregate net proceeds of approximately $1.48 billion. Additionally, in October 2021, Quanta amended its senior credit facility to, among other things, provide a new $750.0 million term loan facility that matures in October 2026, increase the aggregate revolving commitments from $2.51 billion to $2.64 billion and extend the maturity date for the revolving commitments from September 2025 to October 2026. Quanta used proceeds from the senior notes offering and the new term loan, together with revolving loans, to finance the cash portion of the consideration for the Blattner acquisition.
  • Capital Deployment - During the third quarter of 2021 and through the date of this earnings release, in addition to Blattner, Quanta acquired three businesses and made an investment in a company for aggregate consideration of approximately $110 million, subject to certain post-closing adjustments. These transactions collectively enhance Quanta's ability to deliver comprehensive infrastructure solutions to our North American utility and communications customers. Additionally, during the third quarter, Quanta repurchased 184,758 shares of its outstanding common stock in the open market for $16.8 million, and year to date Quanta has repurchased 720,564 shares of its outstanding common stock in the open market for $64.0 million. As of November 3, 2021, Quanta's current stock repurchase program authorized additional repurchases of up to $472.8 million of common stock.

RESULTS FOR THE NINE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2021
Revenues in the nine months ended September 30, 2021 were $9.06 billion compared to revenues of $8.29 billion in the nine months ended September 30, 2020, and net income attributable to common stock was $381.2 million, or $2.64 per diluted share, in the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to net income attributable to common stock of $275.5 million, or $1.90 per diluted share, in the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock (a non-GAAP financial measure) was $3.37 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to $2.61 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

FULL-YEAR 2021 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. During 2020 and 2021, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on various aspects of the economy have significantly impacted certain of Quanta's operations and various markets where Quanta operates, which has created uncertainty. Therefore, Quanta's financial outlook for revenues, margins and earnings reflects management's effort to align these uncertainties with the backlog the company is executing on and the opportunities expected to materialize during the remainder of 2021.

Prior to the company's conference call, management will post a summary of updated 2021 guidance expectations with additional commentary in the "News and Events" and "Financial Info" areas of the Investor Relations section of Quanta's website at http://investors.quantaservices.com.

The following forward-looking statements are based on current expectations, and actual results may differ materially. Including the expected results of businesses acquired by Quanta during the third quarter of 2021 and in the fourth quarter of 2021 through the date of this release, Quanta now expects revenues to be between $12.55 billion and $12.85 billion, net income attributable to common stock to be between $464 million and $493 million, diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock to be between $3.20 and $3.40 and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock (a non-GAAP financial measure) to be between $4.62 and $4.87 for the full year of 2021. Additionally, Quanta now expects EBITDA (a non-GAAP financial measure) to be between $1.09 billion and $1.14 billion, adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP financial measure) to be between $1.21 billion and $1.26 billion, and free cash flow (a non-GAAP financial measure) to be between $350 million and $500 million for the full year of 2021.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
The financial measures not prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP) that are utilized in this press release 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, financial measures prepared in conformity with GAAP.

Please see the accompanying tables for reconciliations of the following non-GAAP financial measures for Quanta's current and historical results and full-year 2021 expectations (as applicable): adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock (a non-GAAP financial measure) to diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock; adjusted net income attributable to common stock, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP financial measures) to net income attributable to common stock; free cash flow (a non-GAAP financial measure) to net cash provided by operating activities; and backlog (a non-GAAP financial measure) to remaining performance obligations.

(a) Equity in earnings of integral unconsolidated affiliates includes unconsolidated affiliates that are operationally integral to the operations of Quanta and primarily consists of equity in earnings related to Quanta's equity interest in LUMA Energy, LLC.

(b) Included in Electric Power Infrastructure Solutions operating income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 are $15.4 million and $46.9 million of operating losses related to Quanta's Latin American operations, which negatively impacted operating income margin for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 by 80 basis points in each period. As of December 31, 2020, Quanta had substantially completed its exit of these operations.

(c) Included in operating income for the Underground Utility and Infrastructure Solutions segment for the nine months ended September 30,  2021 are a $23.6 million provision for credit loss related to receivables from a customer that declared bankruptcy in July 2021 and its affiliate and a $2.3 million asset impairment charge related to certain equipment that was not utilized in Quanta's core operations and was subsequently sold. The provision for credit loss related to the receivables negatively impacted operating margin for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 by approximately 90 basis points.

(d) Included in corporate and non-allocated costs for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 are $6.2 million and $10.4 million of acquisition and integration costs.

Remaining Performance Obligations and Backlog (a non-GAAP financial measure)

Quanta's remaining performance obligations represent management's estimate of consolidated revenues that are expected to be realized from the remaining portion of firm orders for fixed price contracts not yet completed or for which work has not yet begun. For purposes of calculating remaining performance obligations, Quanta includes all estimated revenues attributable to consolidated joint ventures and variable interest entities, revenues from funded and unfunded portions of government contracts to the extent they are reasonably expected to occur and revenues from change orders to the extent management believes additional contract revenues will be earned and are deemed probable of collection.

While backlog is not a defined term under GAAP, it is a common measurement used in Quanta's industry. Quanta believes this non-GAAP financial measure enables it and its investors to more effectively forecast its future results and better identify future operating trends that may not otherwise be apparent. Quanta's remaining performance obligations, as described above, are a component of Quanta's backlog calculation, which also includes estimated orders under master service agreements (MSAs), including estimated renewals, and non-fixed price contracts expected to be completed within one year. Quanta's methodology for determining backlog may not be comparable to the methodologies used by other companies.

The following table reconciles Quanta's total remaining performance obligations to its backlog by reportable segment along with estimates of amounts expected to be realized within 12 months:

(In thousands, except per share information)
(Unaudited)

The following table presents the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures of adjusted net income attributable to common stock to net income attributable to common stock and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock to diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020. These reconciliations are 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 and diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock enables it and Quanta's investors to more effectively evaluate Quanta's operations period over period and better identify operating trends that may not otherwise be apparent. However, these non-GAAP measures should not be considered as alternatives to net income attributable to common stock and diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock or other measures of performance that are derived in accordance with GAAP. As to certain of the items below, (i) 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; (ii) amortization of intangible assets is impacted by Quanta's acquisition activity, and therefore can vary from period to period; (iii) acquisition and integration costs vary period to period depending on the level of Quanta's acquisition activity, (iv) asset impairment charges can vary from period to period depending on economic and other factors; (v) change in fair value of contingent consideration liabilities varies from period to period depending on the performance in post-acquisition periods of certain acquired businesses; (vi) impairments of non-integral unconsolidated affiliates vary from period to period depending on various market factors outside Quanta's influence or control; and (vii) write-offs of deferred financing costs vary from period to period depending on the timing and nature of debt and other financing transactions. Because adjusted net income attributable to common stock and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock, as defined, exclude some, but not all, items that affect net income attributable to common stock and diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock, they may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. The most comparable GAAP financial measures, net income attributable to common stock and diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock, and information reconciling the GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures, are included below.

(a) The amounts for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 include a provision for credit loss of $23.6 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, related to receivables from a customer that declared bankruptcy in July 2021 and its affiliate.

(b) The amount for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 reflects an asset impairment charge related to certain equipment that was not utilized in Quanta's core operations and was sold in October 2021.

(c) The amount for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 represents impairments associated with two non-integral unconsolidated affiliates that were negatively impacted by the decline in demand for refined products during the first and second quarters of 2020. As of September 30, 2021, one of the investments had been sold, and Quanta's basis in the remaining investment was $8.4 million. These impairment losses are included in "Other income (expense), net" in the accompanying condensed consolidated statement of operations.

(d) The amount for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 represents the write-off of deferred financing costs related to a  bridge financing commitment entered into, but ultimately not utilized, in connection with Quanta's acquisition of Blattner. The amount for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 primarily represents the write-off of deferred financing costs related to the voluntary prepayment of the term loans under Quanta's senior credit facility.

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

The following table presents the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA to net income attributable to common stock for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020. These reconciliations are intended to provide useful information to investors and analysts as they evaluate Quanta's performance. EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted for certain other items as described below. Management believes that the exclusion of these items from net income attributable to common stock enables it and Quanta's investors to more effectively evaluate Quanta's operations period over period and to identify operating trends that might not be apparent when including the excluded items. However, these measures should not be considered as an alternative to net income attributable to common stock or other measures of performance that are derived in accordance with GAAP. As to certain of the items below, (i) non-cash stock-based compensation expense varies from period to period due to acquisition activity, changes in the estimated fair value of performance-based awards, forfeiture rates, accelerated vesting and amounts granted; (ii) acquisition and integration costs vary from period to period depending on the level of Quanta's acquisition activity; (iii) equity in (earnings) losses of non-integral unconsolidated affiliates varies from period to period depending on the activity and financial performance of non-integral unconsolidated affiliates, including gain or loss on sales of investments accounted for using the equity method of accounting; (iv) asset impairment charges can vary from period to period depending on economic and other factors; and (v) change in fair value of contingent consideration liabilities varies from period to period depending on the performance in post-acquisition periods of certain acquired businesses. Because EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, as defined, exclude some, but not all, items that affect net income attributable to common stock, such measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Reconciliation of Free Cash Flow:

The following table presents the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measure of free (negative free) cash flow to net cash provided by operating activities for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020. These reconciliations are intended to provide useful information to investors and analysts as they evaluate Quanta's ability to generate the cash required to maintain and potentially expand its business. Free (negative free) cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less net capital expenditures. Net capital expenditures is defined as capital expenditures less proceeds from the sale of property and equipment and from insurance settlements related to property and equipment. Management believes that free (negative free) cash flow provides useful information to Quanta's investors because free (negative free) cash flow is viewed by management as an important indicator of how much cash is provided or used by routine business operations, including the impact of net capital expenditures. Management uses this measure for capital allocation purposes as it is viewed as a measure of cash available to fund debt payments, acquire businesses, repurchase common stock, declare and pay dividends and transact other investing and financing activities. However, this measure should not be considered as an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities or other measures of performance that are derived in accordance with GAAP.

Management believes that free cash flow provides useful information to Quanta's investors because free cash flow is viewed by management as an important indicator of how much cash is provided or used by routine business operations, including the impact of net capital expenditures. Management uses this measure for capital allocation purposes as it is viewed as a measure of cash available to fund debt payments, acquire businesses, repurchase common stock, declare and pay dividends and transact other investing and financing activities. However, this measure should not be considered as an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities or other measures of performance that are derived in accordance with GAAP. The most comparable GAAP financial measure, net cash provided by operating activities, and information reconciling the GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures, are included below.
