  • Remain focused on successful execution of our five key objectives
    • Focus on and grow our base business
    • Improve margins
    • Create growth platforms through service line expansion in the utility, communications and industrial industries, and adjacent industries where craft skilled labor is critical to providing cost-certain solutions
    • Be the industry leader in safety and training by investing in craft skilled labor
    • Deploy capital in a disciplined and value-creating manner
  • Continue to have a positive multi-year outlook and believe Quanta has opportunity to generate meaningful stockholder value

Cautionary Statement About Forward-Looking Statements

Although Quanta's management believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, it can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct.

  • Quanta's inability to predict the extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic and related impacts will adversely impact its business, financial performance, results of operations, financial position, the prices of its securities and the achievement of its strategic objectives, including with respect to governmental restrictions on its ability to operate, workforce availability, regulatory and permitting delays, and future demand for energy and the resulting impact on demand for Quanta's services;
