In July 2013, Quanta acquired an electric power infrastructure services company based in Ohio with operations primarily in the Midwest and along the East Coast of the United States and a natural gas and pipeline infrastructure services company based in Australia. The aggregate consideration paid for these two acquisitions consisted of approximately $118.0 million in cash, net of unrestricted cash acquired, and 763,272 shares of Quanta common stock valued at approximately $18.7 million. As these transactions were effective in July 2013, the results will be included in Quanta’s consolidated financial statements beginning in July 2013. These acquisitions enable Quanta to further enhance its service offerings in certain regions of the United States and increase Quanta’s service capabilities in Australia.
