CORAL GABLES, Fla., Aug. 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- MasTec, Inc. (NYSE: MTZ) today announced higher than expected second quarter financial results and cash flow from operations as well as increased 2019 annual guidance.

  • Second quarter 2019 revenue was $1.94 billion, a 20% increase compared with $1.62 billion for the same period last year. GAAP net income was up 50% to $120.2 million, or $1.58 per diluted share, compared to $80.4 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2018.
  • Second quarter 2019 adjusted net income, a non-GAAP measure, was up 46% to $122.0 million compared with $83.5 million for the same period last year. Adjusted diluted earnings per share, a non-GAAP measure, was up 54% to $1.60 compared with $1.04 for the same period last year, exceeding the Company's previously announced second quarter 2019 expectation by $0.49.
  • Second quarter 2019 adjusted EBITDA, also a non-GAAP measure, was up 26% to $240.7 million, compared with $191.1 million for the same period last year, exceeding the Company's previously announced 2019 second quarter guidance expectation by approximately $41 million.
  • Strong second quarter 2019 cash flow from operations of $398 million, with second quarter days sales outstanding, net of BIEC ("DSO"), normalized at 77 days, enabling a $287 million net debt reduction.
  • The Company also announced 18-month backlog as of June 30, 2019 of $7.8 billion, a $51 million increase compared to the second 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, "We are proud to report record second quarter results, significantly above our guidance expectation. We continue to have strong visibility into continued growth opportunities and are pleased to increase our 2019 annual guidance to yet another record level."

Mr. Mas continued, "As we look beyond 2019, our diversified end markets continue to afford us multiple growth opportunities, and we believe investments made during 2019 to support growth will position us to maximize our future growth and financial performance."

George Pita, MasTec's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer noted, "We had record second quarter 2019 cash flow from operations and significantly reduced debt levels, resulting from ordinary course cash collection activity. Our second quarter DSOs are at a normalized level of 77 days, and we expect that our future DSOs will remain within our targeted range of mid to high 70's to low 80's. We also continue to expect record annual 2019 cash flow from operations, and our capital structure and ample liquidity afford us the ability to take advantage of various multi-year growth opportunities in our markets."
