HOUSTON, Aug. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Quanta Services, Inc. /zigman2/quotes/203420082/composite PWR +0.25% today announced results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020. Revenues in the second quarter of 2020 were $2.51 billion compared to revenues of $2.84 billion in the second quarter of 2019, and net income attributable to common stock was $73.9 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2020, compared to net income attributable to common stock of $27.3 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2019. Adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock (a non-GAAP measure) was $0.74 for the second quarter of 2020 compared to $0.31 for the second quarter of 2019. The financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2019, including diluted and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock, include a $79.2 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, charge associated with a terminated large telecommunications project in Peru.

"Quanta produced a solid second quarter, which exceeded our expectations, despite the unprecedented health and economic conditions that are challenging us all. We believe our results and improved outlook for the year demonstrate the resiliency of our business, the strengths of our strategies and the operational excellence of our people," said Duke Austin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Quanta Services. "We ended the quarter with a strong balance sheet and liquidity position, and our competitive position in the marketplace and ability to serve the expanding needs of our customers have never been better. We believe Quanta has a bright future ahead for generating repeatable and sustainable earnings as we continue to execute on our strategic initiatives."

"During the second quarter we announced that LUMA Energy, LLC, a joint venture 50% owned by Quanta, was selected for a 15-year agreement to operate, modernize and maintain Puerto Rico's electric transmission and distribution system. We believe this opportunity is transformative for the company and supports our ongoing strategy of providing sophisticated and valuable solutions to the utility industry. We believe LUMA's selection also demonstrates Quanta's world-class capabilities and expertise in modernizing infrastructure and enabling technologies for the benefit of consumers that Quanta brings to the joint venture."

Certain items that impacted the second quarter of 2020 results are reflected as adjustments in the calculation of Quanta's adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock and are further described in the non-GAAP reconciliation of adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock to GAAP diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock in the accompanying table. Quanta completed two acquisitions during the first six months of 2020 and seven acquisitions during the full year 2019. 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 2020 and 2019, see the footnotes to the Supplemental Segment Data table and the non-GAAP reconciliations of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock in the accompanying tables.

RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Authorized New $500 Million Stock Repurchase Program - In August 2020, Quanta's board of directors, in support of management's request, authorized the company to repurchase, from time to time through June 30, 2023, up to $500 million in shares of its outstanding common stock under a new stock repurchase program. This authorization is in addition to the approximately $87 million remaining under the company's prior authorization, for aggregate stock repurchase authorization of $587 million. As of August 5, 2020, Quanta had acquired approximately 13 million shares of its common stock under its prior authorization for an aggregate amount of $413.2 million.

  • LUMA Energy Selected for Operation & Maintenance of Puerto Rico's Electric Power Transmission & Distribution System - In June 2020, Quanta announced that LUMA Energy, LLC (LUMA), a joint venture equally owned by Quanta and Canadian Utilities Limited, an ATCO Ltd. company (ATCO), in conjunction with Innovative Emergency Management, Inc., had been selected by the Puerto Rico Public-Private Partnership Authority for a 15-year Operation and Maintenance Agreement (the O&M Agreement) with the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA). The O&M Agreement engages LUMA to operate, maintain and modernize PREPA's more than 18,000-mile electric transmission and distribution (T&D) system in Puerto Rico following a transition period. Quanta believes that, in addition to delivering a more resilient power grid, LUMA's efforts can lead to the transformation of PREPA and deliver long-term social and economic benefits to the people of Puerto Rico. LUMA will not own the T&D assets nor own or operate the power generation assets.

  • Completed Strategic Acquisition - In July 2020, Quanta completed the strategic acquisition of a leading professional engineering firm based in Chicago, IL, that provides infrastructure engineering and design services to electric utilities, gas utilities and communications services companies, as well as permitting and utility locating services. This acquisition meaningfully enhances Quanta's turnkey engineering capabilities in its core utility markets and particularly strengthens its communications engineering capabilities.

LATIN AMERICA As communicated in previous investor communications, the company is pursuing the orderly exit of its Latin American (LATAM) operations and continues to make progress, including through the potential sale of certain of these operations. Quanta's LATAM operations generated operating losses of $15.2 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2020, as compared to operating losses of $79.3 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2019, which included the $79.2 million charge associated with the terminated telecommunications project in Peru. These operations have been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic during the first six months of this year, which, in part, has led us to accelerate various contract terminations and other activities in order to expedite Quanta's cessation of operations in the region, which in turn has negatively impacted Quanta's results.

UPDATE TO QUANTA'S RESPONSE TO AND THE EFFECT OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC Quanta continues to take proactive measures to protect the health and safety of its employees through the implementation of its pandemic plan and is operating based on the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Quanta also continues to implement initiatives such as specialized training, social distancing, additional protective equipment for its employees in the field, and additional sanitizing measures for offices, vehicles and equipment. Quanta continues to restrict non-essential business travel, apply work-from-home policies where appropriate and develop other human resource-related guidance to help employees stay safe and healthy. To date, Quanta has not experienced any meaningful impact on the availability of its workforce or key personnel as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, Quanta continues to implement its business continuity plan and collaborate with customers to minimize potential service disruptions and to proactively anticipate how COVID-19 may impact the company's operations.

As discussed on Quanta's first quarter 2020 earnings call and as expected, certain portions of Quanta's operations were materially impacted in the second quarter by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The most meaningful impacts resulted from shelter-in-place restrictions in certain major metropolitan markets that were significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, which negatively impacted Quanta's gas utility infrastructure services, and from access restrictions at industrial and refining facilities and the rapid decline in global demand for refined products, which impacted demand for Quanta's industrial services at refineries. The COVID-19 pandemic has also had a significant impact on Quanta's LATAM operations, as described above, and compounded broader challenges in the energy market, which has affected demand for certain other services in Quanta's Pipeline and Industrial Infrastructure Services segment.

Quanta has a strong balance sheet and liquidity position, including significant availability under its senior revolving credit facility. At June 30, 2020, Quanta had total liquidity of $2.1 billion, including $530.7 million of cash. The company generated cash flow from operating activities of $725.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020, as well as $526.6 million for the full year 2019. Management believes Quanta's operational strengths and diversity, the countercyclical nature of Quanta's cash flow generation and the incremental measures Quanta has taken to manage costs and capital expenditures, position us well to continue to operate successfully and profitably and to opportunistically but prudently deploy capital.

The ultimate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Quanta's operational and financial performance will depend on future developments, including the duration and severity of the pandemic and actions taken by Quanta's customers and suppliers and by domestic and international governments in response to the pandemic, all of which are uncertain and cannot be predicted. As a result, Quanta continues to actively monitor the current environment for risks related to the pandemic in order to prepare and respond accordingly.

RESULTS FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2020 Revenues in the six months ended June 30, 2020 were $5.27 billion compared to revenues of $5.65 billion in the six months ended  June 30, 2019, and net income attributable to common stock was $112.6 million, or $0.78 per diluted share, in the six months ended June 30, 2020, compared to net income attributable to common stock of $147.8 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, in the six months ended June 30, 2019. Adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock (a non-GAAP measure) was $1.21 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 compared to $1.27 for the six months ended June 30, 2019. Both diluted and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock for the six months ended June 30, 2020 were impacted by operating losses associated with Quanta's  LATAM operations of $31.5 million, or $0.22 per diluted share. Both diluted and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock for the six months ended June 30, 2019 include a $79.2 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, charge associated with the terminated telecommunications project in Peru and $60.3 million ($43.9 million after-tax), or $0.30 per diluted share, of earnings related to the recognition of previously deferred earnings on an electric transmission project in Canada.

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 2020.

Prior to the company's conference call, management will post a summary of updated 2020 guidance expectations with additional commentary in the "Financial Info" area 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 expects revenues to range between $11.0 billion and $11.4 billion, net income attributable to common stock to range between $338 million and $382 million, diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock to range between $2.33 and $2.64 and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock (a non-GAAP measure) to range between $3.18 and $3.48. EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) is expected to range between $819 million and $881 million and adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) is expected to range between $903 million and $964 million. Additionally, Quanta is increasing its full year free cash flow (a non-GAAP measure) expectations to between $600 million and $800 million.

Quanta's outlook for 2020 includes the expected results of its LATAM operations. As referenced above and discussed previously, the company has completed a strategic review and has concluded it will pursue the orderly exit of these operations. The company is considering various options to that end and, absent further delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, believes a significant portion of the process could be achieved in 2020. Quanta believes this course of action will result in improved profitability and optimization of the company's operational portfolio. In 2020, Quanta's LATAM operations are expected to generate revenues of $20 million to $30 million, an operating loss of $40 million to $45 million and diluted loss per share of $0.28 to $0.31.

Please see the accompanying tables for reconciliations of estimated adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock (a non-GAAP measure) to estimated diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock for full-year 2020, estimated EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) and estimated adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) to estimated net income attributable to common stock for full-year 2020 and estimated free cash flow (a non-GAAP measure) to estimated net cash provided by operating activities for full-year 2020.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES The non-GAAP measures 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 generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP).

(a)  Latin America revenues and operating loss have been presented separately as a result of Quanta's conclusion to pursue an orderly exit of its operations in Latin America. The Latin American results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 included a $79.2 million charge associated with a terminated telecommunications project in Peru. The charge consisted of a $48.8 million decrease in revenues and a $30.4 million increase in cost of services.


(b)  Equity in earnings of integral unconsolidated affiliates includes Quanta's equity in earnings of unconsolidated affiliates that are operationally integral to the operations of Quanta and primarily consist of earnings related to LUMA, which commenced operations in June 2020.


(c)  Included in corporate and non-allocated costs for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 are $0.6 million and $2.5 million of acquisition and integration costs. Included in corporate and non-allocated costs for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 are $1.2 million and $3.7 million of acquisition and integration costs.

 

Quanta Services, Inc. and Subsidiaries Supplemental Data (In millions) (Unaudited)

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 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 (a non-GAAP measure) by reportable segment along with estimates of amounts expected to be realized within 12 months:

(a) Dominion Energy, Inc and Duke Energy Corporation announced subsequent to June 30, 2020 that they are no longer moving forward with the Atlantic Coast Pipeline project, which is an approximately 600-mile natural gas pipeline under construction in the eastern United States. A Quanta subsidiary had been contracted, as part of a joint venture, to construct a portion of the project. Although the joint venture has not received a notice of termination, based on the announcement Quanta has concluded that the revenues related to the original remaining performance obligation associated with the project are no longer probable. As a result, this project has been excluded from remaining performance obligations and backlog as of June 30, 2020.

 

Quanta Services, Inc. and Subsidiaries  Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share  Attributable to Common Stock For the Three and Six Months Ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 (In thousands, except per share information) (Unaudited)

The following table presents the non-GAAP measure of adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock for the three and  six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, which, when used in connection with diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock, is 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 attributable to common stock enables it to more effectively evaluate Quanta's operations period over period and better identify operating trends that may not otherwise be apparent. 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) 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; (v) impairments of non-integral unconsolidated affiliates vary from period to period depending on various market factors outside Quanta's influence or control; (vi) bargain purchase gains vary from period to period depending on Quanta's acquisition activity and the valuation of acquired businesses; (vii) changes in statutory tax rates are not regularly occurring items; and (viii) tax settlements and adjustments to related indemnification assets vary from period to period depending on the status and resolution of pending matters. Because adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock, as defined, excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income attributable to common stock, adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock as presented in this press release may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. The most comparable GAAP financial measure, net income attributable to common stock, and information reconciling the GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures, are included below.

(a) The amounts for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 represent impairments associated with two non-integral unconsolidated affiliates that have been negatively impacted by the decline in demand for refined products. As of June 30, 2020, Quanta's basis in the two investments was $23.0 million. These impairment losses are included in "Other income (expense), net" in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations.

(b) The amount for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 reflects a bargain purchase gain related to the acquisition of an electrical infrastructure services business.

(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) The amount for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 reflects the impact on deferred taxes of a change in a Canadian provincial statutory tax rate.

(e) The amount for the six months ended June 30, 2019 represents a $4.1 million tax benefit related to the favorable settlement of certain non-U.S. income tax obligations associated with an acquired business, partially offset by a $4.0 million ($3.2 million after-tax) reduction of a related indemnification asset. The tax benefit is included in "Income tax provision" in the accompanying condensed consolidated statement of operations, and the expense associated with the reduction in the indemnification asset is included as "Other income (expense), net" in the accompanying condensed consolidated statement of operations.

(f)  Both diluted and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock include $15.2 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and $31.5 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2020 of operating losses associated with Quanta's LATAM operations. Both diluted and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 include a $79.2 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, charge associated with a terminated telecommunications project in Peru. Additionally, both diluted and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock for the six months ended June 30, 2019 include $60.3 million ($43.9 million after-tax), or $0.30 per diluted share, of earnings related to the recognition of previously deferred earnings on an investment in an electric transmission project in Canada.

Quanta Services, Inc. and Subsidiaries Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA For the Three and Six Months Ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 (In thousands) (Unaudited)

The following table presents the non-GAAP financial measures of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, 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, amortization and equity in (earnings) losses of non-integral unconsolidated affiliates, and adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted for certain other items as described below. 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. Management believes that the exclusion of these items from net income attributable to common stock enables it 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. As to certain of the items below, (i) equity in (earnings) losses of non-integral unconsolidated affiliates can vary from period to period depending on the activity and financial performance of non-integral unconsolidated affiliates, including deferral and subsequent recognition upon completion of construction of earnings on contracts performed for entities in which Quanta has an equity interest; (ii) 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; (iii) acquisition and integration costs vary period to period depending on the level of Quanta's acquisition activity; (iv) bargain purchase gains vary from period to period depending on Quanta's acquisition activity and the valuation of acquired businesses; (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) tax settlements and adjustments to related indemnification assets vary from period to period depending on the status and resolution of pending matters.

Quanta Services, Inc. and Subsidiaries Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures Free (Negative Free) Cash Flow and Other Non-GAAP Definitions For the Three and Six Months Ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 (In thousands) (Unaudited)

Reconciliation of Free (Negative Free) Cash Flow: The non-GAAP measure of free (negative free) cash flow, when used in connection with net cash provided by (used in) 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 (negative free) cash flow is defined as net cash provided by (used in) 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 (negative free) cash flow provides useful information to Quanta's investors because free (negative 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, including required quarterly payments under our outstanding term loans, acquire businesses, repurchase common stock, declare and pay dividends and transact other investing and financing activities. The most comparable GAAP financial measure, net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, and information reconciling the GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures, are included below.

The following presents the non-GAAP measure of adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock, which, when used in connection with diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock, is 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 attributable to common stock enables it to more effectively evaluate Quanta's operations period over period and better identify operating trends that may not otherwise be apparent. 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) 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 (v) impairments of non-integral unconsolidated affiliates vary from period to period depending on various market factors outside Quanta's influence or control. Because adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock, as defined, excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income attributable to common stock, adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to common stock as presented in this press release may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Quanta Services, Inc. and Subsidiaries Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures Estimated Free Cash Flow For the Full Year 2020 (In thousands) (Unaudited)

The non-GAAP measure of estimated free (negative free) cash flow, when used in connection with estimated net cash provided by (used in) 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 (negative free) cash flow is defined as net cash provided by (used in) 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 (negative free) cash flow provides useful information to Quanta's investors because free (negative 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, including required quarterly payments under our outstanding term loans, acquire businesses, repurchase common stock, declare and pay dividends and transact other investing and financing activities. The most comparable GAAP financial measure, net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, and information reconciling the GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures, are included below.
