In addition, the Company announced that its board of directors has authorized up to $100 million in repurchases of the Company's shares. The Company reported:

  • Fourth quarter 2015 revenue was $1.03 billion, a 16.6% decrease compared with $1.23 billion for the prior year fourth quarter. 18-month backlog as of December 31, 2015 represented a record level, at $5.7 billion, a 31% increase compared to $4.3 billion as of December 31, 2014 and a 24% increase compared to $4.6 billion as of September 30, 2015.
  • Fourth quarter 2015 adjusted net income from continuing operations, a non-GAAP measure, was $16.8 million compared to $32.4 million in the same period in 2014.  Fourth quarter 2015 continuing operations adjusted diluted earnings per share, a non-GAAP measure, was $0.21, compared to $0.38 in the same period in 2014. 
  • Fourth quarter 2015 continuing operations adjusted EBITDA, also a non-GAAP measure, was $82 million compared to $110 million in the same period in 2014.
  • Fourth quarter 2015 GAAP net loss from continuing operations was $76.9 million or $0.96 per diluted share, compared to net income from continuing operations of $26.6 million, or $0.32 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2014. Fourth quarter GAAP 2015 results include non-cash goodwill and intangible asset impairment of $0.95 per diluted share related to the Company's western Canadian Oil and Gas operations and also include approximately $0.15 per diluted share of incremental non-operating and non-core charges over prior year results.

The Company also reported:

  • For the year ended December 31, 2015, revenue was $4.2 billion, an 8.7% decrease compared with $4.6 billion for the prior year.
  • For the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company reported record levels of cash flow from operating activities at $367 million, a 14% increase compared to $323 million for the prior year. 
  • For the year ended December 31, 2015, adjusted net income from continuing operations, a non-GAAP measure, was approximately $51.4 million compared to $135.0 million for the prior year. Full year 2015 continuing operations adjusted diluted earnings per share, a non-GAAP measure, was $0.64 compared to $1.57 last year.
  • Full year 2015 continuing operations adjusted EBITDA, also a non-GAAP measure, was $308 million compared to $425 million last year.
  • Full year 2015 GAAP net loss from continuing operations was $79.7 million or $0.98 per diluted share for the year ended 2015 compared to net income from continuing operations of $122.0 million or $1.42 per diluted share for the year ended 2014. 2015 year end GAAP results include non-cash goodwill and intangible asset impairment of $0.94 per diluted share related to the Company's western Canadian Oil and Gas operations also include approximately $0.52 per diluted share of incremental non-operating and non-core charges over prior year results.

Adjusted net income from continuing operations, continuing operations adjusted diluted earnings per share and continuing operations adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP measures, exclude, as applicable, Audit Committee investigation related costs, WesTower acquisition integration costs, a project loss related to a non-controlled Canadian joint venture, a settlement charge from a court mandated mediation related to a 2013 project dispute, the non-recurring impact on deferred tax liabilities resulting from an income tax law change in Alberta, Canada, unrealized fair market value losses on interest rate swaps of an equity investee, non-cash goodwill and intangible asset impairment and non-cash stock-based compensation expense. Reconciliations of these and other non-GAAP measures to GAAP-reported measures are attached.

Additionally, MasTec's Board of Directors has authorized the repurchase of up to $100 million of shares of MasTec common stock. The authorization does not obligate MasTec to repurchase any particular amount of common stock during any period and the program may be modified or suspended at any time at the Company's discretion. Stock repurchases may be made from time to time and the actual amount repurchased will depend on a variety of factors including market conditions, regulatory and legal requirements, cash flow and liquidity needs and other factors. The stock repurchases may be made in both open market and privately negotiated transactions, and may include the use of derivative contracts, structured share repurchase agreements and Rule 10b5-1 trading plans. Repurchases would be funded from cash on hand and availability under the Company's revolving credit facility.

Jose Mas, MasTec's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "2015 was a difficult year. However, we enter 2016 with a growing number of opportunities across our segments and record backlog. Today we have announced a stock repurchase authorization. While we will be mindful of our overall debt levels and business conditions before we initiate any purchases, this authorization provides us the ability to be opportunistic if business and market conditions warrant share repurchases in the long-term interest of our shareholders."

George Pita, MasTec's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer noted, "We generated record cash flow from operating activities during a difficult 2015 period, with significant improvements in our working capital metrics. We enter 2016 with approximately $500 million in liquidity, and the expectation of significantly improved 2016 financial performance, which we believe will provide us with ample financial resources to take advantage of potential opportunities."

The Company is providing both first quarter and full year 2016 guidance. These views are based on information available today, and are subject to the timing uncertainties associated with the start-up of expected projects in the Company's backlog. The Company currently estimates 2016 revenue of approximately $4.6 to $4.8 billion. 2016 continuing operations adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, is estimated at $415 to $430 million, with continuing operations adjusted diluted earnings per share, a non-GAAP measure at $1.35 to $1.45.

For the first quarter of 2016, the Company expects revenue of approximately $950 million.  First quarter 2016 continuing operations adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, is estimated at approximately 5% to 6% of revenue, with continuing operations adjusted diluted earnings per share, a non-GAAP measure, estimated between a loss of $0.03 to a breakeven level.   First quarter 2016 guidance reflects expected seasonality and timing of project startups, in which first quarter results are typically the lowest quarter of the year. 

Management will hold a conference call to discuss these results on Friday, February 26, 2015 at 9:00 a.m. Eastern time.  The call-in number for the conference call is (719) 325-2425 and the replay number is (719) 457-0820, with a pass code of 2478235.  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.
