The Company also announced it has acquired SEFNCO Communications, Inc. in April 2017, a leading wireline / fiber deployment construction contractor with operations in several western states, predominantly servicing cable system operators.

Mr. Mas added the following, "We are excited to expand both our geographic and customer capacity in the wireline/fiber deployment market. We expect that the combination of the addition of an excellent entrepreneurial management team with strong cable customer relationships, coupled with existing MasTec operations expertise will provide a compelling platform that will benefit from growing multi-year opportunities in the wireline/fiber deployment market for cable and telecom customers."

Regarding MasTec's financial status, George Pita, MasTec's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer noted, "We had strong cash flow from operations during the first quarter, further improving our leverage metrics, balance sheet and capital structure. We continue to have full financial flexibility and resources to take advantage of the significant multi-year growth opportunities in the markets we serve."

Based on the information available today, the Company is providing second quarter guidance, and increasing full year 2017 guidance expectations. The Company currently estimates 2017 full year revenue of approximately $5.7 billion. 2017 full year GAAP net income is expected to increase 40% over 2016 to approximately $188 million with GAAP diluted earnings per share expected to be $2.25, a 40% increase over 2016. 2017 full year adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, is expected to increase 21% over 2016 to $575 million with adjusted diluted earnings per share, a non-GAAP measure, expected to be $2.45, a 29% increase over 2016.
