PR Newswire

HOUSTON, Feb. 21, 2013

HOUSTON, Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Quanta Services, Inc. (NYSE: PWR) today
announced results for the three and 12 months ended Dec. 31, 2012. On Dec.3,
2012, Quanta sold substantially all of its domestic telecommunications
infrastructure services operations. Accordingly, Quanta has presented these
telecommunications subsidiaries for the current and prior periods as
discontinued operations in the accompanying consolidated financial statements,
supplemental data and reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures.

Revenues in the fourth quarter of 2012 were $1.67 billion compared to revenues
of $1.39 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011. Net income from continuing
operations attributable to common stock was $102.4 million, or $0.48 per
diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2012, versus $58.7 million, or $0.28
per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2011. Included in net income from
continuing operations attributable to common stock for the fourth quarter of
2012 was $2.7 million of income, or a net benefit of $0.01 per diluted share,
from the release of income tax contingencies due to the expiration of various
statutes of limitations. Included in net income from continuing operations
attributable to common stock for the fourth quarter of 2011 was a $32.6
million charge to cost of services ($20.4 million net of tax) related to a
multiemployer pension plan partial withdrawal liability. Also included in net
income attributable to common stock for the fourth quarter of 2011 was $8.4
million of income from the release of income tax contingencies. The net impact
of these two items to the fourth quarter of 2011 was a $0.06 reduction in
diluted earnings per share.

"Our record fourth quarter performance was the culmination of the best year in
our company's history. During the year, we achieved nearly 36% internal
revenue growth, expanded our margins and improved our industry leading safety
results. I want to thank our dedicated employees for such a significant
achievement," said Jim O'Neil, president and chief executive officer of Quanta
Services. "Looking forward, we expect growth to continue in the energy markets
we serve, as reflected by our record backlog at year end. Although timing of
project starts can shift from one quarter to another, our end markets are
robust. We will also continue to leverage our leadership position to enhance
our service offerings to our customers."

Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations (a non-GAAP
measure) were $0.51 for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $0.38 for the
fourth quarter of 2011. Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing
operations are before the impact of certain adjustments and therefore exclude
the effect of the release of income tax contingencies, the charge related to a
multiemployer pension plan partial withdrawal liability discussed previously
and 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.

Revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2012 were $5.92 billion compared to $4.19
billion for the year ended Dec. 31, 2011. For 2012, net income from continuing
operations attributable to common stock was $289.7 million or $1.36 per
diluted share. Included in net income attributable to common stock for 2012
was $7.9 million of income, or a net benefit of $0.04 per diluted share, from
the release of income tax contingencies in the third and fourth quarters of
2012. The results for 2012 compared to net income from continuing operations
attributable to common stock of $118.5 million, or $0.56 per diluted share,
for 2011, which includes the charge related to our multiemployer pension plan
partial withdrawal and income from the release of income tax contingencies and
settlement of certain tax audits discussed above. Adjusted diluted earnings
per share from continuing operations (a non-GAAP measure) for the full year
were $1.52 for 2012 as compared to $0.76 for 2011.

RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

  oNamed Duke Austin Chief Operating Officer - In December 2012, Quanta
    announced that Duke Austin had been named chief operating officer
    effective Jan. 1, 2013. Austin oversees Quanta's domestic and
    international operations. He most recently held the title of president,
    Electric Power and Natural Gas and Pipeline Divisions and was previously
    responsible for Quanta's power and pipeline operations since January 2011.
  oAppointed Margaret Shannon to Board of Directors - In December 2012,
    Quanta announced the appointment of Margaret Shannon to the company's
    board of directors. Shannon brings vast experience from the energy
    industry, as well as in corporate governance.
  oClosed the Sale of Telecommunications Subsidiaries to Dycom Industries -
    In December 2012, Quanta announced that it closed the sale of its
    telecommunications subsidiaries to Dycom Industries, Inc. for net proceeds
    of approximately $265 million. The subsidiaries included in the
    transaction comprised substantially all of Quanta's former domestic
    telecommunications infrastructure services operations. Quanta intends to
    use the proceeds from the transaction to support its ongoing strategic
    growth initiatives and for general corporate purposes.
  oSelected by SaskPower to Install the Island Falls to Key Lake Transmission
    Line - In January, Quanta announced that SaskPower had selected Valard
    Construction, a Quanta Services company, to install transmission
    infrastructure for the Island Falls to Key Lake Transmission Line Project.
    Under the terms of the contract, Valard will build approximately 186 miles
    (300 kilometers) of 230-kilovolt transmission line in northern
    Saskatchewan. The project scope includes foundation construction,
    installation of approximately 900 transmission towers, wire stringing and
    related project management. The project is expected to be complete in the
    spring of 2015.
  oAwarded Contracts for Two Solar Tracking Facilities Totaling 40MWac - In
    February, Quanta announced that its subsidiary, Quanta Power Generation,
    Inc., had been selected by Con Edison Development (CED) to engineer,
    procure and construct two photovoltaic (PV) facilities totaling
    approximately 40 megawatts (MWac) located in Kings and Tulare counties,
    Calif.

OUTLOOK
The overall outlook for Quanta's business is positive. However, regulatory and
permitting challenges may impact project timing. Therefore, Quanta's financial
outlook for revenues and margins reflects management's efforts to properly
align these uncertainties with the backlog the company is executing on and the
opportunities expected to materialize in 2013. In addition, the company's
outlook for 2013 reflects a reduction in emergency restoration revenues to
more normalized levels, as 2012 results reflect record emergency restoration
service revenues of over $250 million. Lastly, the company has not assumed any
uncommitted mainline pipeline construction work in its 2013 financial outlook.
The following forward-looking statements are based on current expectations,
and actual results may differ materially.

Quanta expects revenues for the first quarter of 2013 to range between $1.3
billion and $1.4 billion and diluted earnings per share from continuing
operations to be $0.28 to $0.30. Quanta expects adjusted diluted earnings per
share from continuing operations (a non-GAAP measure) for the first quarter of
2013 to be $0.31 to $0.33. This non-GAAP measure is estimated on a similar
basis as the calculations of historical adjusted diluted earnings per share
from continuing operations presented in this press release. Amortization of
intangibles and non-cash stock compensation expense are forecasted to be
approximately $5.3 million and $5.6 million for the first quarter of 2013.

Quanta expects revenues for the full year 2013 to range between $5.7 billion
and $6.2 billion. Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for
the full year 2013 are estimated to be between $1.10 and $1.40. Quanta expects
adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the full
year 2013 to range from $1.23 to $1.53. Amortization of intangibles and
non-cash stock compensation expense are forecasted to be approximately $20.2
million and $26.1 million for the full year 2013.

SUPPLEMENTAL FINANCIAL MEASURES
Certain consolidated historical financial information recast for discontinued
operations has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in a
Form 8-K and posted to Quanta's website at www.quantaservices.com in the
"Investors & Media" section. The historical financial information includes
consolidated statements of operations, earnings per share and segment data, as
well as backlog information, for specified quarterly and year-to-date periods
in 2012 and 2011 recast for discontinued operations. In addition, certain
non-GAAP financial measures and the associated reconciliations of these
measures to reported GAAP measures that are derived from Quanta's recast
historical financial information for such quarterly and year-to-date periods
in 2012 and 2011 have also been posted to Quanta's website.

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.

favorable terms; the potential that participation in joint ventures exposes us

Backlog
Backlog represents the amount of revenue that Quanta expects to realize from
work to be performed in the future on uncompleted contracts, including new
contractual arrangements on which work has not yet begun. Backlog estimates
include amounts under long-term maintenance contracts or master service
agreements (MSAs), in addition to construction contracts. Quanta estimates the
amount of work to be disclosed as backlog as the estimate of future work to be
performed by using recurring historical trends inherent in the current MSAs,
factoring in seasonal demand and projecting customer needs based upon ongoing
communications with the customer. Generally, Quanta's customers are not
contractually committed to specific volumes of services under Quanta's MSAs,
and many of the company's contracts may be terminated with notice. There can
be no assurance as to Quanta's customers' requirements or that Quanta's
estimates are accurate. In addition, many of Quanta's MSAs, as well as
contracts for fiber optic licensing, are subject to renewal options. For
purposes of calculating backlog, Quanta has included future renewal options
only to the extent that the renewals can reasonably be expected to occur.

The following table presents Quanta's total backlog by reportable segment as
of December 31, 2012, September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, along with an
estimate of the backlog amounts expected to be realized within 12 months of
each date (in millions):

Quanta Services, Inc. and Subsidiaries
Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
For the Three and Twelve Months Ended December 31, 2012 and 2011
(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 compensation expense may vary due to acquisition activity, factors
influencing the estimated fair value of performance-based awards, estimated
forfeiture rates 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) tax contingency releases vary
period to period depending on the level of reserves for uncertain tax
positions and the expiration dates of various federal and state tax statutes
of limitations.
