CORAL GABLES, Fla., May 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- ͼ, Inc. (NYSE: MTZ) today announced 2023 first quarter financial results and updated its full year 2023 guidance range expectation.

First quarter 2023 revenue was up 32.2% to $2.58 billion, compared to $1.95 billion for the first quarter of 2022. GAAP net loss was $80.5 million, or $1.05 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $35.0 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2022. First quarter results include acquisition and integration costs of $17.1 million related to recent acquisition activity.

First quarter 2023 adjusted net loss and adjusted diluted loss per share, both non-GAAP measures, were $41.9 million and $0.54, respectively, as compared to adjusted net loss and adjusted diluted loss per share of $2.0 million and $0.03, respectively, in the first quarter of 2022. First quarter 2023 adjusted EBITDA, also a non-GAAP measure, was $102.5 million, compared to $98.7 million in the first quarter of 2022. As expected, first quarter 2023 results reflect the impact of project inefficiencies, primarily at acquired entities, and relatively low volume in our Clean Energy and Oil & Gas segments that reduced fixed cost leverage. The Company's overall performance reflects the expected significant shift in 2023 operations to non-Oil & Gas segments, as evidenced by record first quarter backlog in the non-Oil & Gas segments as of March 31, 2023.

18-month backlog as of March 31, 2023, was $13.9 billion, up 7% sequentially from the fourth quarter of 2022, and up 31% compared to last year's first quarter.

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, ͼ's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "As we begin a new year, I am excited and proud of how we have positioned ͼ to participate in some of the fastest growing areas of our economy. Our evolution over the last few years to focus on our nation's energy transition, coupled with our strength in fiber and wireless construction, uniquelypositions us in these high-demand markets."

Mr. Mas continued, "Our first quarter was in line with our prior expectations and the year is shaping up as we anticipated. I expect 2023 to be not only a great year, but one in which our diversification strategy is clearly evidenced in our financial results."

Paul DiMarco, ͼ's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, noted, "We continue to maintain a strong balance sheet and liquidity profile to support the expected growth in all of our segments. Additionally, we are committed to improve leverage metrics in 2023 through the combination of strong cash flow, improved operating performance and moderated levels of capital expenditures and strategic investments. Maintaining our Investment Grade rating is a priority. We've had good dialogue with the rating agencies on our expected leverage reduction, as evidenced by Standard and Poor's recent affirmative action."

Based on the information available today, the Company is providing second quarter and updating full year 2023 guidance. The Company currently expects full year 2023 revenue to range from $13.0 to $13.2 billion. GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share for full year 2023 are expected to range between $165 million and $200 million and $2.11 and $2.55, respectively. Full year 2023 adjusted EBITDA is expected to range between $1.10 billion and $1.15 billion, representing between 8.5% and 8.7% of revenue, and adjusted diluted earnings per share is expected to range between $4.35 and $4.85.

For the second quarter of 2023, the Company expects revenue of approximately $3.0 billion. Second quarter 2023 GAAP net income is expected to approximate $19 million, with GAAP diluted earnings per share expected to be $0.24. Second quarter 2023 adjusted EBITDA is expected to approximate $250 million or 8.3% of revenue, with adjusted diluted earnings per share expected to be $0.86.

Management will hold a conference call to discuss these results on Friday, May 5, 2023 at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time. The call-in number for the conference call is (856) 344-9221 or (888) 254-3590 with a pass code of 9075337.

Backlog is a common measurement used in our industry. Our methodology for determining backlog may not, however, be comparable to the methodologies used by others. Estimated backlog represents the amount of revenue we expect to realize over the next 18 months from future work on uncompleted construction contracts, including new contracts under which work has not begun, as well as revenue from change orders and renewal options. Our estimated backlog also includes amounts under master service and other service agreements and our proportionate share of estimated revenue from proportionately consolidated non-controlled contractual joint ventures. Estimated backlog for work under master service and other service agreements is determined based on historical trends, anticipated seasonal impacts, experience from similar projects and estimates of customer demand based on communications with our customers.
