HOUSTON, Aug. 5, 2021

HOUSTON, Aug. 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Quanta Services, Inc. (NYSE: PWR) today announced results for the three months ended June 30, 2021. Revenues in the second quarter of 2021 were $3.00 billion compared to revenues of $2.51 billion in the second quarter of 2020, and net income attributable to common stock was $117.0 million, or $0.81 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2021 compared to net income attributable to common stock of $73.9 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2020. Adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock (a non-GAAP measure) was $1.06 for the second quarter of 2021 compared to $0.74 for the second quarter of 2020.

"Quanta generated record second quarter revenues, net income, adjusted EBITDA and earnings per share, led by the solid performance and safe execution from our Electric Power Infrastructure Solutions segment. Backlog of $17.0 billion at the end of the quarter set another record, reflecting our collaborative approach with customers and the growth of programmatic spending with existing and new customers," said Duke Austin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Quanta Services.

"Our customers' multi-year programs to modernize and harden utility infrastructure, along with their efforts to achieve carbon-neutrality through increased renewable generation investment and electrification trends such as electric vehicles (EV), continue to drive demand for our services and present incremental growth opportunities. These opportunities include large, multi-year master services agreements, larger high-voltage electric transmission projects and large-scale EV infrastructure program engagements. These dynamics, coupled with active broadband and 5G network deployments and the opportunity for recovery of certain operations that have been affected by the global pandemic, give us a positive outlook for the remainder of this year and the belief that our business and opportunities for profitable growth in 2022 and beyond are gaining momentum."

Negatively impacting the results for the three months ended June 30, 2021, was a provision for credit loss of $23.6 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, with respect to outstanding receivables owed by Limetree Refining, LLC and its affiliate, which are customers within Quanta's Underground Utility and Infrastructure Solutions segment. In July 2021, Limetree Refining filed for bankruptcy protection under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, as amended, after experiencing operational and financial difficulties and shutting down operations at its refinery. The provision for credit loss represents the current estimated amount of expected loss associated with approximately $31.5 million of billed and unbilled receivables owed to Quanta by the customers.

Certain other items impacted the second quarter of 2021 results and are reflected as adjustments in the calculation of Quanta's adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock and are further described in the accompanying non-GAAP reconciliation of those non-GAAP financial measures to net income and diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock. Quanta completed two acquisitions during the first six months of 2021 and seven acquisitions during the full year 2020. Therefore, Quanta's results include the results of the acquired businesses from their respective acquisition dates. For further information on the items that impacted comparability of 2021 and 2020, see the footnotes to the Supplemental Segment Data table and the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures in the accompanying tables.

Company, commenced the operations and maintenance of Puerto Rico's electric power transmission and distribution (T&D) system under a Supplemental Terms Agreement following nearly a year of preparation to transition these responsibilities from the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) to LUMA.

RESULTS FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2021
Revenues in the six months ended June 30, 2021 were $5.70 billion compared to revenues of $5.27 billion in the six months ended June 30, 2020, and net income attributable to common stock was $206.8 million, or $1.43 per diluted share, in the six months ended June 30, 2021 compared to net income attributable to common stock of $112.6 million, or $0.78 per diluted share, in the six months ended June 30, 2020. Adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock (a non-GAAP measure) was $1.89 for the six months ended June 30, 2021 compared to $1.21 for the six months ended June 30, 2020.

FULL-YEAR 2021 OUTLOOK
The long-term outlook for Quanta's business is positive. However, weather, regulatory, permitting, project timing, execution challenges and other factors have impacted the company's historical results, and may impact Quanta's future financial results. More recently, the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted certain of Quanta's operations and various markets where Quanta operates, which has created additional uncertainty. Therefore, Quanta's financial outlook for revenues, margins and earnings reflects management's effort to align these uncertainties with the backlog the company is executing on and the opportunities expected to materialize during the remainder of 2021.

Prior to the company's conference call, management will post a summary of updated 2021 guidance expectations with additional commentary in the "News and Events" and "Financial Info" areas of the Investor Relations section of Quanta's website at http://investors.quantaservices.com.

The following forward-looking statements are based on current expectations, and actual results may differ materially. Quanta now expects revenues to be between $12.20 billion and $12.45 billion, net income attributable to common stock to be between $491 million and $543 million, diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock to be between $3.40 and $3.76 and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock (a non-GAAP measure) to be between $4.32 and $4.68 for the full year of 2021. Additionally, Quanta now expects EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) to be between $1.04 billion and $1.11 billion, adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) to be between $1.13 billion and $1.21 billion, and free cash flow (a non-GAAP measure) to be between $400 million and $600 million for the full year of 2021.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
The financial measures not prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP) that are utilized in this press release 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 in addition to, and not in lieu of, results prepared in conformity with GAAP.

Please see the accompanying tables for reconciliations of the following non-GAAP financial measures for Quanta's current and historical results and full-year 2021 expectations (as applicable): adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock (a non-GAAP measure) to diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock; adjusted net income attributable to common stock, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP measures) to net income attributable to common stock; free cash flow (a non-GAAP measure) to net cash provided by operating activities; and backlog (a non-GAAP measure) to remaining performance obligations.

(a) Equity in earnings of integral unconsolidated affiliates includes unconsolidated affiliates that are operationally integral to the operations of

Quanta and primarily consists of equity in earnings related to LUMA.

(b) Included in Electric Power Infrastructure Solutions operating income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 are $15.2 million and $31.5 million of operating losses related to Quanta's Latin American operations, which negatively impacted operating income margin for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 by 80 basis points and 90 basis points. As of December 31, 2020, Quanta had substantially completed its exit of these operations.

(c) Included in operating income for the Underground Utility and Infrastructure Solutions segment for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 were a $23.6 million provision for credit loss related to receivables from a customer that declared bankruptcy in July 2021 and its affiliate and a $2.3 million asset impairment charge related to the planned sale of certain equipment that is not utilized in Quanta's core operations. The provision for credit loss related to the receivables negatively impacted operating margins for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 by approximately 280 basis points and 160 basis points.

(d) Included in corporate and non-allocated costs for the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 are $1.6 million and $0.6 million of acquisition and integration costs.

Remaining Performance Obligations and Backlog (a non-GAAP measure)

Quanta's remaining performance obligations represent management's estimate of consolidated revenues that are expected to be realized from the remaining portion of firm orders for fixed price contracts not yet completed or for which work has not yet begun. For purposes of calculating remaining performance obligations, Quanta includes all estimated revenues attributable to consolidated joint ventures and variable interest entities, revenues from funded and unfunded portions of government contracts to the extent they are reasonably expected to occur and revenues from change orders to the extent management believes additional contract revenues will be earned and are deemed probable of collection.

While backlog is not a defined term under GAAP, it is a common measurement used in Quanta's industry. Quanta believes this non-GAAP measure enables it and its investors to more effectively forecast its future results and better identify future operating trends that may not otherwise be apparent. Quanta's remaining performance obligations, as described above, are a component of Quanta's backlog calculation, which also includes estimated orders under master service agreements (MSAs), including estimated renewals, and non-fixed price contracts expected to be completed within one year. Quanta's methodology for determining backlog may not be comparable to the methodologies used by other companies.

The following table reconciles Quanta's total remaining performance obligations to its backlog by reportable segment along with estimates of amounts expected to be realized within 12 months:

(Unaudited)

The following table presents the non-GAAP measures of adjusted net income attributable to common stock and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, which, when used in connection with net income attributable to common stock and diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock, are intended to provide useful information to investors and analysts as they evaluate Quanta's performance. Management believes that the exclusion of certain items from net income and diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock enables it and Quanta's investors to more effectively evaluate Quanta's operations period over period and better identify operating trends that may not otherwise be apparent. However, these non-GAAP measures should not be considered as alternatives to net income attributable to common stock and diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock or other measures of performance that are derived in accordance with GAAP. As to certain of the items below, (i) non-cash stock-based compensation expense may vary due to acquisition activity, changes in the estimated fair value of performance-based awards, forfeiture rates, accelerated vesting and amounts granted; (ii) amortization of intangible assets is impacted by Quanta's acquisition activity, and therefore can vary from period to period; (iii) acquisition and integration costs vary period to period depending on the level of Quanta's acquisition activity, (iv) asset impairment charges can vary from period to period depending on economic and other factors; (v) change in fair value of contingent consideration liabilities varies from period to period depending on the performance in post-acquisition periods of certain acquired businesses; and (vi) impairments of non-integral unconsolidated affiliates vary from period to period depending on various market factors outside Quanta's influence or control. Because adjusted net income attributable to common stock and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock, as defined, exclude some, but not all, items that affect net income attributable to common stock and diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock, they may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. The most comparable GAAP financial measures, net income attributable to common stock and diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock, and information reconciling the GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures, are included below.

(a) The amount for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 reflects an asset impairment charge related to the planned sale of certain equipment that is not utilized in Quanta's core operations.

(b) The amounts for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 represent impairments associated with two non-integral unconsolidated affiliates that were negatively impacted by the decline in demand for refined products during the first and second quarters of 2020. As of June 30, 2021, one of the investments had been sold, and Quanta's basis in the remaining investment was $8.1 million. These impairment losses are included in "Other income (expense), net" in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations.

(c) The income tax impact of adjustments that are subject to tax is determined using the incremental statutory tax rates of the jurisdictions to which each adjustment relates for the respective periods.

(d) Both diluted and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 include a provision for credit loss of $23.6 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, related to receivables from a customer that declared bankruptcy in July 2021 and its affiliate.

The following table presents the non-GAAP financial measures of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, which, when used in connection with net income attributable to common stock, are intended to provide useful information to investors and analysts as they evaluate Quanta's performance. EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted for certain other items as described below. Management believes that the exclusion of these items from net income attributable to common stock enables it and Quanta's investors to more effectively evaluate Quanta's operations period over period and to identify operating trends that might not be apparent when including the excluded items. However, these measures should not be considered as an alternative to net income attributable to common stock or other measures of performance that are derived in accordance with GAAP.

Reconciliation of Free Cash Flow:

The non-GAAP measure of free cash flow, when used in connection with net cash provided by operating activities, is intended to provide useful information to investors and analysts as they evaluate Quanta's ability to generate the cash required to maintain and potentially expand its business. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less net capital expenditures. Net capital expenditures is defined as capital expenditures less proceeds from the sale of property and equipment and from insurance settlements related to property and equipment. Management believes that free cash flow provides useful information to Quanta's investors because free cash flow is viewed by management as an important indicator of how much cash is provided or used by routine business operations, including the impact of net capital expenditures. Management uses this measure for capital allocation purposes as it is viewed as a measure of cash available to fund debt payments, acquire businesses, repurchase common stock, declare and pay dividends and transact other investing and financing activities. However, this measure should not be considered as an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities or other measures of performance that are derived in accordance with GAAP.
