On April 12, 2012, Quanta acquired Service Electric Company (Service Electric), a full service electrical contractor focused on the Southeastern United States. The aggregate consideration paid consisted of approximately $20.3 million in cash, 662,426 shares of Quanta common stock valued at approximately $12.5 million and the repayment of approximately $5.9 million in debt. As this transaction was effective April 12, 2012, the results of Service Electric will be included in Quanta’s consolidated financial statements beginning on such date. This acquisition enables Quanta to further enhance its electric power infrastructure service offerings. Service Electric’s financial results will generally be included in Quanta’s Electric Power Infrastructure Services segment.
