4. ACQUISITIONS:

2015 Acquisitions

During the first quarter of 2015, Quanta completed the acquisition of three companies. These acquisitions included an underground utility distribution contractor that provides services to gas and electric utilities in Canada, which is generally included in Quanta’s Oil and Gas Infrastructure Services segment, a supplier and material procurement specialist for the power and utility industry in Canada, which is generally included in Quanta’s Electric Power Infrastructure Services segment, and a company that specializes in the engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning of compression and surface facilities for the high pressure gas industry in Australia, which is generally included in Quanta’s Oil and Gas Infrastructure Services segment. The aggregate consideration paid for these acquisitions was approximately $36.9 million in cash, subject to net working capital adjustments. As these transactions were effective during the first quarter of 2015, the results have been included in Quanta’s consolidated financial statements beginning on the respective dates of acquisition. These acquisitions should enable Quanta to further enhance its electric power and oil and gas infrastructure service offerings in Canada and Australia.

2014 Acquisitions

During 2014, Quanta completed nine acquisitions, which enabled Quanta to further enhance its electric power and oil and gas infrastructure service offerings in the United States and Canada and expand its capabilities in Australia to include electric power infrastructure service offerings. These acquisitions included four electric power infrastructure services companies located in Canada; two oil and gas infrastructure services businesses located in Canada; an electric power infrastructure services company located in Australia; a U.S.-based general engineering and construction company specializing in hydrant fueling, waterfront and utility construction for the U.S. Department of Defense that is generally included in Quanta’s Oil and Gas Infrastructure Services segment; and a geotechnical and geological engineering services company based in the United States that is generally included in Quanta’s Electric Power Infrastructure Services segment. The aggregate consideration paid for these acquisitions consisted of approximately $284.3 million in cash, 686,382 shares of Quanta common stock and 3,825,971 exchangeable shares of Canadian subsidiaries of Quanta that are exchangeable on a one-for-one basis for Quanta common stock. The exchangeable shares provide holders with rights equivalent to Quanta common stockholders with respect to dividends and other economic rights. In addition, Quanta issued one share of Series G preferred stock associated with 899,858 of the exchangeable shares, which generally votes on the same matters as Quanta common stock and is entitled to a number of votes equal to the number of such exchangeable shares outstanding at that time. The exchangeable shares not associated with preferred stock do not have voting rights. The aggregate value of the securities issued related to 2014 acquisitions on the respective closing or settlement dates of the acquisitions totaled approximately $134.5 million. As these transactions were effective during 2014, the results of each acquired company have been included in Quanta’s consolidated financial statements beginning on the respective dates of acquisition.

2015 and 2014 Acquisitions

Quanta is in the process of finalizing its assessments of the fair values of the acquired assets and assumed liabilities related to businesses acquired subsequent to June 30, 2014, and further adjustments to the purchase price allocations may occur. Quanta expects to complete the purchase accounting process as soon as practicable but no later than one year from the respective acquisition dates. The aggregate purchase consideration related to the third and fourth quarter 2014 acquisitions was preliminarily allocated to acquired assets and assumed liabilities, which resulted in a preliminary allocation of approximately $106.9 million of net tangible assets, $116.1 million of goodwill and $73.9 million of other intangible assets. Additionally, the aggregate purchase consideration related to the first quarter 2015 acquisitions was preliminarily allocated to acquired assets and assumed liabilities, which resulted in a preliminary allocation of approximately $9.5 million of net tangible assets, $18.3 million of goodwill and $9.1 million of other intangible assets.

 

The following table summarizes the aggregate consideration paid or payable through March 31, 2015 for the 2015 and 2014 acquisitions and presents the allocation of these amounts to the net tangible and identifiable intangible assets based on their estimated fair values as of the respective acquisition dates. This allocation requires a significant use of estimates and is based on information that was available to management at the time these consolidated financial statements were prepared (in thousands).

The fair value of current assets acquired in 2015 included accounts receivable with a fair value of $6.2 million. The fair value of current assets acquired in 2014 included accounts receivable with a fair value of $117.0 million.

Goodwill represents the excess of the purchase price over the net amount of the fair values assigned to assets acquired and liabilities assumed. The 2015 and 2014 acquisitions strategically expanded Quanta’s Canadian, Australian and domestic electric power and oil and gas service offerings, which Quanta believes contributes to the recognition of the goodwill. In connection with the 2015 acquisitions, goodwill of $0.9 million was recorded for the business acquired that was included within Quanta’s Electric Power Division and $17.4 million was recorded for the businesses acquired that were included within Quanta’s Oil and Gas Infrastructure Division on the dates of acquisition. In connection with the 2014 acquisitions, goodwill of $71.5 million was recorded for the businesses included within Quanta’s Electric Power Division and $103.0 million was recorded for businesses included within Quanta’s Oil and Gas Infrastructure Division on the dates of acquisition. No goodwill is expected to be deductible for income tax purposes related to the businesses acquired in the first quarter of 2015, and goodwill of approximately $30.1 million is expected to be deductible for income tax purposes related to the businesses acquired in 2014.

The pro forma combined results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014 have been prepared by adjusting the historical results of Quanta to include the historical results of the 2015 acquisitions as if they occurred January 1, 2014. The pro forma combined results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2014 have also been prepared by adjusting the historical results of Quanta to include the historical results of the 2014 acquisitions as if they occurred January 1, 2013. These pro forma combined historical results were then adjusted for the following: a reduction of interest expense as a result of the repayment of outstanding indebtedness, a reduction of interest income as a result of the cash consideration paid net of cash received, an increase in amortization expense due to the incremental intangible assets recorded related to the 2015 and 2014 acquisitions, an increase or decrease in depreciation expense within cost of services related to the net impact of adjusting acquired property and equipment to the acquisition date fair value and conforming depreciable lives with Quanta’s accounting policies, an increase in the number of outstanding shares of Quanta common stock and certain reclassifications to conform the acquired companies’ presentation to Quanta’s accounting policies. The pro forma results of operations do not include any adjustments to eliminate the impact of acquisition related costs or any cost savings or other synergies that may result from the 2015 and 2014 acquisitions. As noted above, the pro forma results of operations do not purport to be indicative of the actual results that would have been achieved by the combined company for the periods presented or that may be achieved by the combined company in the future.

Revenues of approximately $7.0 million and a loss before income taxes of approximately $1.0 million, which included $0.5 million of acquisition costs, were included in Quanta’s consolidated results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2015 related to the 2015 acquisitions following their respective dates of acquisition.
