4. DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS:

On August 4, 2015, Quanta completed the sale of its fiber optic licensing operations to Crown Castle, pursuant to a stock purchase agreement entered into on April 29, 2015. The aggregate purchase price was approximately $1 billion in cash, resulting in estimated after-tax net proceeds of approximately $830 million. In the third quarter of 2015, Quanta expects to recognize an estimated net of tax gain of approximately $175 million.

As of June 30, 2015, Quanta determined that its fiber optic licensing operations met the requirements to be classified as held for sale and presented as discontinued operations. Accordingly, Quanta has presented the results of operations, financial position, cash flows and disclosures related to the fiber optic licensing operations as discontinued operations in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements. The results were previously included in the Fiber Optic Licensing and Other segment.

Also in connection with the sale, Quanta will remain liable for all income related taxes and insured claims associated with the fiber optic licensing operations arising on or before or outstanding as of August 4, 2015.
