* = Record first quarter result

HOUSTON, May 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Quanta Services, Inc. (NYSE: PWR) today announced results for the three months ended March 31, 2022. Revenues in the first quarter of 2022 were $3.97 billion compared to revenues of $2.70 billion in the first quarter of 2021, and net income attributable to common stock was $84.6 million, or $0.57 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2022 compared to net income attributable to common stock of $89.8 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2021. Adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock (a non-GAAP financial measure) was $1.37 for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $0.83 for the first quarter of 2021.

"Quanta delivered a strong first quarter to start the year, with significant revenue growth in each segment, record total backlog of $20.5 billion and solid and safe execution by our portfolio of companies, which produced record first quarter adjusted earnings per share (EPS)," said Duke Austin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Quanta Services. "As a result of our first quarter results and continued confidence in the diversity and strength that our portfolio of companies provides, we are reiterating our 2022 consolidated financial expectations.

"As discussed during our recent Investor Day, Quanta is successfully executing on our strategic initiatives to drive sustainable and resilient operational excellence, total cost solutions for our clients, consistent profitable growth and value for our stakeholders. We believe we are uniquely positioned to capitalize on the megatrends and opportunities to lead the energy transition and enable technological development, with initiatives such as electric vehicle charging infrastructure and undergrounding of electrical infrastructure gaining momentum. As a result, we believe Quanta has built a platform with opportunity to deliver a 10% organic adjusted EPS compound annual growth rate (CAGR) and a strategy with opportunity to deliver a +15% adjusted EPS CAGR through 2026."

Certain items impacted the first quarter of 2022 results and are reflected as adjustments in the calculation of Quanta's adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock (a non-GAAP measure). These items are described in the accompanying tables reconciling adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock to GAAP diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock. Quanta completed no acquisitions during the first three months of 2022 and ten acquisitions during the full year 2021 and the results of the acquired businesses are included in Quanta's consolidated results from the respective acquisition dates. For further information on the items that impacted comparability of 2022 and 2021, see the footnotes accompanying tables presenting Supplemental Segment Data and reconciliations of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock (non-GAAP measures) to their comparable GAAP financial measures.

FULL-YEAR 2022 OUTLOOK

The long-term outlook for Quanta's business is positive. However, weather, regulatory, permitting, supply chain challenges and other factors impacting project timing, execution challenges and other factors have impacted the company's historical results, and may impact Quanta's future financial results. Additionally, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on various aspects of the economy have significantly impacted certain Quanta operations and various markets where Quanta operates in 2020 and 2021, and we continue to consider future uncertainty associated with the pandemic. 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 2022.

Prior to the company's conference call, management will post a summary of updated 2022 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. For the full year ending December 31, 2022, Quanta now expects revenues to range between $16.20 billion and $16.70 billion, net income attributable to common stock to range between $515 million and $590 million, diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock to range between $3.47 and $3.97 and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock (a non-GAAP financial measure) to range between $6.00 and $6.50 for the full year ending December 31, 2022. Additionally, Quanta now expects EBITDA (a non-GAAP financial measure) to range between $1.45 billion and $1.56 billion, adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP financial measure) to range between $1.60 billion and $1.71 billion, and free cash flow (a non-GAAP financial measure) to range between $650 million and $850 million for the full year ending December 31, 2022.

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 2022 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.

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:

Attributable to Common Stock
For the Three Months Ended
March 31, 2022 and 2021 
(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 months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021. 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 attributable to common stock 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 in the table to follow, (i) non-cash stock-based compensation expense may vary 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) 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 from period to period depending on the level of Quanta's acquisition activity; (iv) 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 and the effect of present value accretion on fair value calculations; (v) gains and losses on the sales of investments vary from period to period depending on activity; and (vi) unrealized mark-to-market adjustments on Quanta's investment in a publicly traded company vary from period to period based on fluctuations in the market price of such company's common stock. 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 in the table to follow.

The following table presents reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA to net income attributable to common stock for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021. 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 may vary 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) gains and losses on the sales of investments vary from period to period depending on activity; (v) unrealized mark-to-market adjustments on Quanta's investment in a publicly traded company vary from period to period based on fluctuations in the market price of such company's common stock; and (vi) 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 and the effect of present value accretion on fair value calculations.

Reconciliation of Free (Negative Free) Cash Flow:

The following table presents a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure of free (negative free) cash flow to net cash provided by operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021. This reconciliation is 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.

This release also includes certain long-term projections of the non-GAAP financial measure of estimated adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock through the full year ending December 31, 2026. Due to the high variability and difficulty in making accurate forecasts and projections of some of the information excluded from this projected measure, together with some of the excluded information not being ascertainable or accessible, Quanta is unable to quantify certain amounts that would be required to be included in the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, net income attributable to common stock, without unreasonable effort. Consequently, no disclosure of the estimated comparable GAAP measure is included and no reconciliation of the forward-looking non-GAAP financial measure is included. For the same reasons, Quanta is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could be material to future results.
