For the second quarter of 2007, net income was $21.9 million or $0.17 per diluted share, compared to net income of $17.7 million or $0.14 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2006.

Forward-looking statements

This press release (and oral statements regarding the subjects of this release, including the conference call announced herein) contains forward- looking statements intended to qualify for the "safe harbor" from liability established by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward- looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements relating to projected revenues and earnings per share and other projections of financial and operating results, capital expenditures, growth in particular markets, benefits of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, strategies and plans and whether and when transactions contemplated by the merger agreement with InfraSource will be consummated, as well as statements reflecting expectations, intentions, assumptions or beliefs about future events, and other statements that do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. Although Quanta's management believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, it can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. These statements can be affected by inaccurate assumptions and by a variety of risks and uncertainties that are difficult to predict or beyond our control, including, among others, quarterly variations in operating results; adverse changes in economic conditions and trends in relevant markets; the ability to effectively compete for market share; potential failure of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 to result in increased spending on the electrical power transmission infrastructure; the failure to satisfy the conditions to the closing of the pending merger with InfraSource as contemplated by the merger agreement, including obtaining stockholder or regulatory approvals, or the failure to otherwise consummate the pending merger; unexpected costs or unexpected liabilities that may arise from the pending merger, whether or not consummated; the potential adverse impact to the businesses of the companies as a result of uncertainty surrounding the pending merger, including the inability to retain key personnel; the potential adverse effect of any conditions imposed in connection with consummation of the merger; the ability to successfully identify, complete and integrate acquisitions, including the pending merger with InfraSource; estimates and assumptions in determining financial results; the financial distress of Quanta's casualty insurance carrier that may require payment for losses that would otherwise be insured; potential exposure to environmental liabilities; liabilities for claims that are self-insured or for claims that Quanta's casualty insurance carrier fails to pay; potential liabilities relating to occupational health and safety matters; estimates relating to the use of percentage-of-completion accounting; dependence on fixed price contracts and the potential to incur losses with respect to these contracts; beliefs and assumptions about the collectibility of receivables; the inability of customers to pay for services; rapid technological and structural changes that could reduce the demand for services; the ability to obtain performance bonds; cancellation provisions within contracts and the risk that contracts are not renewed or are replaced on less favorable terms; the ability to attract skilled labor and retention of key personnel and qualified employees; the impact of a unionized workforce on operations and the ability to complete future acquisitions; potential shortage of skilled employees; growth outpacing infrastructure; potential exposure to environmental liabilities; risks associated with operating in international markets; requirements relating to governmental regulation and changes thereto; the ability to continue to meet the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002; the cost of borrowing, availability of credit, debt covenant compliance and other factors affecting financing activities; the ability to generate internal growth; the adverse impact of goodwill impairments; the potential conversion of outstanding convertible subordinated notes; and other risks detailed in Quanta's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2006, Quanta's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2007 and any other documents of Quanta filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Should one or more of these risks materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statements. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which are current only as of this date. Quanta does not undertake and expressly disclaims any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. For a discussion of these risks, uncertainties and assumptions, investors are urged to refer to Quanta's documents filed with the SEC that are available through the company's web site at www.quantaservices.com or through the SEC's Electronic Data Gathering and Analysis Retrieval System (EDGAR) at www.sec.gov.

    (a)  As a result of applying the if-converted method for calculating
         adjusted diluted earnings per share, shares have been adjusted
         assuming conversion of Quanta's 4.5% convertible subordinated notes,
         and adjusted net income has been adjusted upward by $4.5 million for
         the six months ended June 30, 2007, for an addback of related
         interest expense, net of tax.

Note: The non-GAAP measures in this press release are provided to enable investors to evaluate performance excluding the effects of items that management believes impact the comparability of operating results between periods. The six month results for 2007 include the effect of $15.3 million in tax benefits, or $0.11 per diluted share, primarily associated with a reduction in the allowance for tax contingencies due to the settlement of a multi-year audit by the Internal Revenue Service during the first quarter of 2007.
