Jose Mas, MasTec's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We had strong third quarter results and are pleased to increase our full year 2017 annual guidance for the third consecutive quarter. Since the end of the third quarter, we have received significant amounts of project awards across multiple segments and expect that our year end 2017 backlog will be at record levels, exceeding $6 billion, with increasing demand and backlog growth across all of our segments."

George Pita, MasTec's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, noted, "We are proud of our year-to-date performance, including strong cash flow from operations. Our capital structure and ample liquidity give us full financial flexibility to support the significant growth opportunities that exist across the multiple end markets we serve."

Based on the information available today, the Company is increasing 2017 annual guidance, and providing fourth quarter guidance. The Company currently estimates 2017 annual revenue of approximately $6.3 billion. 2017 annual GAAP net income is expected to increase 60% over 2016 to approximately $215 million with GAAP diluted earnings per share expected to be $2.59, a 61% increase over 2016. 2017 annual adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, is expected to increase 32% over 2016 to $630 million with adjusted diluted earnings per share, a non-GAAP measure, expected to be $2.80, a 47% increase over 2016.

For the fourth quarter of 2017, the Company expects revenue of approximately $1.3 billion.  Fourth quarter 2017 GAAP net income is expected to approximate $26 million with GAAP diluted earnings per share expected to approximate $0.32.
