Jose Mas, ͼ's Chief Executive Officer, commented "Our first quarter results significantly exceeded our expectations, and I expect 2024 to begin the validation of our investment and diversification strategy over the last few years. I believe that the investments we have made in broadening our service line offerings have placed us at the forefront of the country's future infrastructure needs. The expected power demand growth will have a significant impact on our Power Delivery, Clean Energy and Infrastructure, and Oil and Gas segments; coupled with the increasing demand for data capacity and speed impacting Communications, position all of our segments for growth."

Paul DiMarco, ͼ's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, noted, "We are pleased to have exceeded our first quarter earnings guidance in each segment and reduced net debt leverage further than expected to 2.7x. We look forward to building on this momentum in subsequent quarters as we focus on executing for our clients and capitalizing on the numerous opportunities afforded by our end markets."

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.

ͼ uses EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin, as well as Adjusted Net (Loss) Income, Adjusted Diluted (Loss) Earnings Per Share and Net Debt, to evaluate our performance, both internally and as compared with its peers, because these measures exclude certain items that may not be indicative of its core operating results, as well as items that can vary widely across different industries or among companies within the same industry. ͼ believes that these adjusted measures provide a baseline for analyzing trends in its underlying business. ͼ believes that these non-U.S. GAAP financial measures provide meaningful information and help investors understand its financial results and assess its prospects for future performance. Because non-U.S. GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies' non-U.S. GAAP financial measures having the same or similar names. These financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, as substitutes for, or alternative measures of, reported net income or diluted earnings per share or total debt, and should be viewed in conjunction with the most comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures and the provided reconciliations thereto. ͼ believes these non-U.S. GAAP financial measures, when viewed together with its U.S. GAAP results and related reconciliations, provide a more complete understanding of its business. Investors are strongly encouraged to review the company's consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety and not rely on any single financial measure.

risks associated with our internal controls over financial reporting, as well as other risks detailed in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We believe these forward-looking statements are reasonable; however, you should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements, which are based on current expectations. Furthermore, forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made. If any of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or if any of our underlying assumptions are incorrect, our actual results may differ significantly from the results that we express in, or imply by, any of our forward-looking statements. These and other risks are detailed in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We do not undertake any obligation to publicly update or revise these forward-looking statements after the date of this press release to reflect future events or circumstances, except as required by applicable law. We qualify any and all of our forward-looking statements by these cautionary factors.
