CORAL GABLES, Fla., Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Q3 Revenue of $1.27 Billion-An Increase of 19%
  • Q3 Continuing Operations Adjusted EBITDA of $135 Million-An Increase of 32%
  • Q3 Continuing Operations Adjusted EBITDA of 10.6%-A 100 Basis Point Improvement
  • Q3 Continuing Operations Adjusted Diluted EPS of $0.61-An Increase of 13%
  • Q3 Cash Flow from Operations of $110 Million
  • Full-Year 2013 Earnings Guidance Reaffirmed

MasTec, Inc. (NYSE: MTZ) today announced record 2013 third quarter financial results with improved revenue, earnings and margins. Revenue for the 2013 third quarter was up 19% to $1.27 billion compared to $1.07 billion for the third quarter of 2012, with most segments showing strong, double-digit growth over last year.  The Oil and Gas segment's revenue was up 83%, Electrical Transmission was up 59% and Communications was up 11%, driven by a 38% increase in wireless projects. On a combined basis, Oil & Gas, Electrical Transmission, and Communications were up 22% organically for the quarter, without acquisitions.  Revenue for the Power Generation and Industrial segment, as expected, was down 60% for the quarter.

Third quarter 2013 continuing operations diluted earnings per share was $0.59 compared to $0.45 for the third quarter of 2012, an increase of 31%.   Third quarter continuing operations adjusted diluted earnings per share, a non-GAAP measure, was $0.61, compared to $0.54 last year, an increase of 13%.  Continuing operations adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2013, a non-GAAP measure, was $135 million, compared to $103 million for the third quarter of 2012, an increase of 32%.  Third quarter 2013 continuing operations adjusted EBITDA margin was 10.6% compared to 9.6% a year ago.   A reconciliation to GAAP measures is attached. 

Jose R. Mas, MasTec's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "MasTec had an excellent third quarter in terms of revenue, earnings, margin expansion and cash flow.  We continue to expect that 2013 will be another record year. We are excited about the opportunities that we have in the oil and gas, electrical transmission and wireless markets. We believe that we are well positioned and believe that, over the next few years, we can continue to take advantage of excellent growth opportunities in the markets we serve."

C. Robert Campbell, MasTec's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, added, "In addition to excellent third quarter earnings,  we had much improved cash flow for the quarter, have improved and expanded our bank senior credit facility and sold GlobeTec, our discontinued business unit.  Cash flow from operations for the third quarter was $110 million with a 13-day drop in accounts receivables days sales outstanding compared to last quarter. Cash flow was much improved despite the working capital required to finance an almost $300 million increase in revenue.  Earlier this week, we expanded our bank senior credit facility from a maximum available amount of $600 million to $750 million and extended the maturity until 2018—with more favorable pricing, terms and conditions. Lastly, we have sold Globetec, our struggling municipal water and sewer business, effective August 31, and recorded an additional loss in discontinued operations of $0.04 per diluted share for the quarter." 

For full year 2013, we are raising our revenue guidance to $4.25 billion and reaffirming continuing operations adjusted EBITDA guidance of $448 million and continuing operations adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance to $1.88. The continuing operations adjusted EBITDA margin is currently estimated at 10.5%. 

The 2013 guidance above excludes the previously disclosed first quarter 2013 loss on extinguishment of debt, the second quarter 2013 legacy Sintel Spanish litigation charge and non-cash stock compensation expense for all periods.  Reconciliation to GAAP measures is attached, and additional information is provided on the Company's website at www.mastec.com.

Management will hold a conference call to discuss these results on Friday, November 1, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. Eastern time.  The call-in number for the conference call is (913) 312-1458 and the replay number is (719) 457-0820, with a pass code of 6651917.  The replay will be available for 30 days.  Additionally, the call will be broadcast live over the Internet and can be accessed and replayed through the Investors section of the Company's website at www.mastec.com.
