MasTec Announces Strong Third Quarter 2020 Earnings Results


CORAL GABLES, Fla., Oct. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- MasTec, Inc. (NYSE: MTZ) today announced better than expected third quarter 2020 financial results and updated its guidance for the remainder of 2020.

Third quarter 2020 revenue was $1.7 billion, with third quarter cash flow from operations of $216.0 million, enabling a sequential $129 million reduction in net debt levels. Year to date 2020 revenue was $4.7 billion, with cash flow from operations at a record level of $712.5 million, a $271 million increase over cash flow from operations during the same period last year.  This strong cash flow enabled a year to date $296 million reduction in net debt levels. As of September 30, 2020, the Company had net debt, defined as total debt less cash, of $1.07 billion.

Third quarter GAAP net income and earnings per diluted share exceeded the Company's expectations at $116.9 million, or $1.59, respectively. Third quarter 2020 adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share, both non-GAAP measures, were $134.5 million and $1.83, respectively, with adjusted diluted earnings per share exceeding the Company's previously announced expectation by $0.16. Third quarter 2020 adjusted EBITDA, also a non-GAAP measure, was $265 million, also exceeding the Company's guidance expectation by approximately $11 million.

Third quarter 18-month backlog as of September 30, 2020 was $7.7 billion, a $179 million increase compared to the same quarter last year.

Adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share and adjusted EBITDA, which are all non-GAAP measures, exclude certain items which are detailed and reconciled to the most comparable GAAP-reported measures in the attached Supplemental Disclosures and Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Disclosures.

Jose Mas, MasTec's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "I want to thank the men and women of MasTec for their continued dedication and professionalism. The safety of our employees during these unprecedented times remains our primary focus, as we continually provide critical power, communications and other services to our customers."

Mr. Mas continued, "We are proud of our third quarter results as our business has shown tremendous resiliency during the pandemic. I'd like to highlight our third quarter year over year 83% adjusted EBITDA growth in our non-Oil & Gas segments and we expect continued strong revenue and earnings growth in these segments in 2021 and beyond.  As demand and regulatory issues continue to impact our Oil & Gas segment, our diversification provides strength and resiliency that sets MasTec apart."

George Pita, MasTec's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer noted, "During the quarter we continued our strong cash flow performance, with a record $712 million in year to date cash flow from operations. We also further strengthened our capital structure during the quarter with the opportunistic issuance of new, lower rate and improved terms senior unsecured notes. We ended the quarter with a strong leverage profile and record levels of liquidity at approximately $1.4 billion.  We continue to expect that annual 2020 results will mark the third consecutive year of a new record level of cash flow from operations. Our strong liquidity and balance sheet give us full flexibility to capitalize on opportunities to maximize shareholder value and to support our customers' growth initiatives."

Most of MasTec's construction services have been deemed essential under state and local pandemic mitigation orders, and all its business segments have continued to operate. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the Company's operations and the Company expects some continued negative impact. Negative effects include lost productivity from governmental permitting approval delays, reduced crew productivity due to social distancing, other mitigation measures or other factors, the health and availability of work crews or other key personnel, including subcontractors or supply chain disruptions, and/or delayed project start dates or project shutdowns or cancellations that may be mandated or requested by governmental authorities or others, all of which could result in lower revenue, higher operating costs and/or create lower levels of overhead cost absorption. 

The Company estimates 2020 annual revenue to range between $6.4 to $6.6 billion, with 2020 annual GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share expected to range between $318 to $324 million and $4.31 to $4.40, respectively. 2020 annual adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, is expected to range from $800 to $811 million, and 2020 annual adjusted diluted earnings per share, also a non-GAAP measure, is expected to range between $5.00 to $5.09. The Company's 2020 annual revenue expectation range includes the effects of COVID-19 impacts across its end markets and the impact of regulatory delays on two large Oil & Gas projects, which have started later than expected.

For the fourth quarter of 2020, the Company expects revenue between $1.7 to $1.9 billion. This revenue expectation incorporates a range of fourth quarter Oil & Gas segment revenue. While the Company has initiated project activity on two large Oil & Gas projects that started later than expected, fourth quarter project activity may vary based on the timing of additional regulatory and/or judicial approvals and winter weather conditions.

Fourth quarter 2020 GAAP net income is expected to range between $108 to $115 million with GAAP diluted earnings per share expected to range between $1.47 to $1.57. Fourth quarter 2020 adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, is expected to range between $252 to $263 million, with adjusted diluted earnings per share, a non-GAAP measure, expected to range between $1.64 to $1.73.

Senior Management will hold a conference call to discuss these results on Friday, October 30, 2020, at 9:00 a.m. Eastern time. The call-in number for the conference call is (323) 794-2094 or (800) 347-6311 and the replay number is (719) 457-0820, with a pass code of 4718477.  The replay will run 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.
