   Thursday, August 02, 2018 5:05:00 PM ET

CORAL GABLES, Fla., Aug. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- MasTec, Inc. (NYSE: MTZ) today announced second quarter financial results and increased 2018 annual guidance.

  • Second quarter 2018 revenue was $1.62 billion, a 14% decrease compared with $1.89 billion for the same period last year, primarily due to expected timing variances in large project activity in the Oil & Gas segment. GAAP net income was $80.4 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, compared to $83.3 million or $0.99 per share in the second quarter of 2017. GAAP results exceeded the Company's previously announced diluted earnings per share expectation by $0.01.

  • Second quarter 2018 adjusted net income, a non-GAAP measure, was $83.5 million. Adjusted diluted earnings per share, a non-GAAP measure, was $1.04, exceeding the Company's previously announced second quarter 2018 expectation by $0.01.

  • Second quarter adjusted EBITDA, also a non-GAAP measure, was $191.1 million, compared with $202.3 million in the second quarter of 2017, exceeding the Company's previously announced 2018 second quarter guidance expectation by approximately $2 million.

  • The Company also announced record 18-month backlog as of June 30, 2018 of $7.7 billion, a $168 million sequential increase when compared to first quarter 2018, and a $2.5 billion increase, or 47%, compared to the second quarter of 2017.

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, "We had another strong quarter, again exceeding our earnings expectations. We delivered solid second quarter 2018 Adjusted EBITDA margin improvement over both last year's 2017 second quarter and sequentially over the 2018 first quarter, primarily by increased performance in our Oil & Gas and Communications segments."

Mr. Mas continued, "We are pleased to once again increase our 2018 annual guidance expectation.  As reflected by our record backlog levels, we have strong visibility for continued growth in 2019 and beyond."

George Pita, MasTec's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer noted, "As we have previously indicated, we expect improved third quarter 2018 cash flow from operations as we normalize working capital requirements on recently completed large Oil & Gas project activity. We also continue to expect record 2018 cash flow from operations, which will allow us to maintain a strong balance sheet with full financial flexibility to take advantage of significant multi-year growth opportunities in our markets."

Based on the information available today, the Company is providing initial third quarter guidance, and increasing full year 2018 guidance expectations. The Company currently estimates full year 2018 revenue of approximately $6.9 billion. Full year 2018 GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share are expected to approximate $285 million and $3.54, respectively. Regarding full year 2018 expectations for non-GAAP measures, adjusted EBITDA is expected to approximate $708 million or 10.3% of revenue and adjusted diluted earnings per share is expected to be $3.67, a 26% increase over 2017.

For the third quarter of 2018, based on updated project schedules for large Oil & Gas project activity, the Company expects revenue of approximately $2.0 billion.  Third quarter 2018 GAAP net income is expected to approximate $98 million with GAAP diluted earnings per share expected to approximate $1.23. Third quarter 2018 adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, is expected to approximate $220 million with adjusted diluted earnings per share, a non-GAAP measure, expected to approximate $1.26
