Quanta Services Reports 2013 Fourth Quarter And Annual Results

Record Annual Revenues, Earnings Per Share & Adjusted Earnings Per Share

HOUSTON, Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Quanta Services, Inc. (NYSE: PWR) today announced results for the three and twelve months ended Dec. 31, 2013. Revenues in the fourth quarter of 2013 were $1.82 billion compared to revenues of $1.67 billion in the fourth quarter of 2012. Net income from continuing operations attributable to common stock was $166.7 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2013, versus net income from continuing operations attributable to common stock of $102.4 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2012, which included record levels of emergency restoration service revenues. Included in net income from continuing operations attributable to common stock for the fourth quarter of 2013 was a $70.5 million after-tax gain, or approximately $0.32 per diluted share, from the sale of all of Quanta's equity ownership interest in Howard Midstream Energy Partners, LLC (Howard Energy) on Dec. 6, 2013. Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations (a non-GAAP measure) were $0.50 for the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to $0.51 for the fourth quarter of 2012.

"Quanta delivered another record year thanks to the commitment of our employees, who are the very best in the industry and the key to our long-term success," said Jim O'Neil, president and chief executive officer of Quanta Services. "Our industry remains in unprecedented times as increasing electric power regulation and the ongoing development of North American oil and gas resources continues to drive the need for energy infrastructure. Our customer relationships are expanding as capital programs become larger and more complex, requiring Quanta's growing geographic presence and comprehensive service offerings. We believe these factors, coupled with our record backlog, will provide the opportunity for double digit growth for at least the next two years."

Revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2013 were $6.52 billion compared to $5.92 billion for the year ended Dec. 31, 2012. For 2013, net income from continuing operations attributable to common stock was $401.9 million, or $1.87 per diluted share, as compared to net income from continuing operations attributable to common stock of $289.7 million, or $1.36 per diluted share, for the year ended Dec. 31, 2012.  Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations (a non-GAAP measure) were $1.71 in 2013 compared to $1.52 in 2012.

Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations is calculated as GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations before the gain on the sale of Howard Energy, the release of income tax contingencies, and acquisition and other costs affecting comparability, as well as non-cash items such as amortization of intangible assets and non-cash compensation expense, all net of tax. See the attached table for a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to the reported GAAP measures.

Quanta completed six acquisitions during 2013. Therefore, the fourth quarter and 2013 year end results include these acquisitions from the respective acquisition dates and are compared to the pre-acquisition historical results of Quanta for the three and twelve months ended Dec. 31, 2012.

Effective Dec. 31, 2013, Quanta's Natural Gas and Pipeline Infrastructure Services segment was renamed the Oil and Gas Infrastructure Services segment to better align with this segment's service offerings and end-customer markets. No changes have been made to this segment's financial results.   

RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Selected for Three Large Electric Transmission Projects in December 2013 and January 2014 - In Dec. 2013 and Jan. 2014, Quanta announced that it had been selected for three large electric transmission projects. These projects, with a combined contract value of approximately $470 million, include segment seven and portions of segment eight of the Tehachapi Renewable Transmission Project for Southern California Edison, the Christina Lake Area Development Transmission Project in Canada for AltaLink and the Muskrat Falls HVac Transmission Project in Canada for Nalcor Energy.
  • Acquired Five Companies in January 2014 - During the first quarter of 2014, Quanta has acquired five companies. Four of these companies are electric power infrastructure services companies located in Canada, and the fifth company is a general engineering and construction company specializing in hydrant fueling, waterfront and utility construction for U.S. Department of Defense military bases and civilian applications, and its results will be generally included in Quanta's Oil and Gas Infrastructure Services segment. The aggregate consideration for these acquisitions consisted of approximately $79.9 million in cash and approximately $36.6 million in Quanta common stock and shares of a Canadian subsidiary of Quanta that are exchangeable for shares of Quanta common stock.
  • Three-Year $500 Million Share Repurchase Program - In Dec. 2013, Quanta announced that its board of directors authorized the repurchase of up to $500 million of Quanta's common stock through Dec. 31, 2016. Under the stock repurchase program, the company is authorized to repurchase, from time-to-time, shares of its outstanding common stock in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions, at management's discretion based on market and business conditions, applicable legal requirements and other factors, or pursuant to an issuer repurchase plan or agreement that may be in effect.

OUTLOOK

The overall outlook for Quanta's business is positive. However, regulatory, permitting and other challenges may impact project timing. Therefore, Quanta's financial outlook for revenues, margins and earnings reflects management's efforts to properly align these uncertainties with the backlog the company is executing on and the opportunities expected to materialize during 2014. The following forward-looking statements are based on current expectations, and actual results may differ materially.

Quanta expects revenues for the first quarter of 2014 to range between $1.65 billion and $1.75 billion and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations to be $0.36 to $0.38. Quanta expects adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations (a non-GAAP measure) for the first quarter of 2014 to be $0.41 to $0.43. This non-GAAP measure is estimated on a basis similar to the calculations of historical adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations presented in this press release. Amortization of intangibles and non-cash stock-based compensation expense is forecasted to be approximately $8.2 million and $7.8 million for the first quarter of 2014.

Quanta expects revenues for the full year 2014 to range between $7.4 billion and $7.8 billion.  Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the full year 2014 are estimated to be $1.65 to $1.85.  Quanta expects adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations (a non-GAAP measure) for the full year 2014 to be $1.85 to $2.05.  Amortization of intangibles and non-cash stock-based compensation expense is forecasted to be approximately $33.1 million and $35.3 million for the full year 2014.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The non-GAAP measures in this press release and on Quanta's website are provided to enable investors, analysts and management to evaluate Quanta's performance excluding the effects of certain items that management believes impact the comparability of operating results between reporting periods. In addition, management believes these measures are useful in comparing Quanta's operating results with those of its competitors. These measures should be used as an addition to, and not in lieu of, results prepared in conformity with GAAP. Reconciliations of other GAAP to non-GAAP measures not included in the table attached to this press release can be found on the company's website at www.quantaservices.com in the "Investors & Media" section.

Backlog

Backlog is not a term recognized under United States generally accepted accounting principles; however, it is a common measurement used in the industry. Quanta's methodology for determining backlog may not be comparable to the methodologies used by other companies.  Quanta's backlog represents the amount of consolidated revenue that it expects to realize from future work under construction contracts and long-term maintenance contracts, or master service agreements. These estimates include revenues from the remaining portion of firm orders not yet completed and on which work has not yet begun, as well as revenues from change orders, renewal options, and funded and unfunded portions of government contracts to the extent that they are reasonably expected to occur. For purposes of calculating backlog, Quanta includes 100% of estimated revenues attributable to consolidated joint ventures and variable interest entities. The following tables present Quanta's total backlog by reportable segment as of December 31, 2013, September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012 along with an estimate of the backlog amounts expected to be realized within 12 months of each balance sheet date (in millions):

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

For the Three and Twelve Months Ended December 31, 2013 and 2012

(In thousands, except per share information)
(Unaudited)


The non-GAAP measure of adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations is provided to enable investors to evaluate performance excluding the effects of items that management believes impact the comparability of operating results between periods. As to certain of the items below, (i) amortization of intangible assets is impacted by Quanta's acquisition activity, which can cause these amounts to vary from period to period; (ii) non-cash stock-based compensation expense may vary due to acquisition activity, factors influencing the estimated fair value of performance-based awards, estimated forfeiture rates, accelerated vesting and amounts granted during the period; (iii) acquisition costs vary period to period depending on the level of Quanta's acquisition activity ongoing during the period; and (iv) income tax contingency releases and audit settlements vary period to period depending on the level of reserves for uncertain tax positions, the expiration of various federal and state tax statute of limitations periods, and the dates on which tax audits are completed.
