                             QUANTA TERMINATES SECT




HOUSTON AND KANSAS CITY - MAY 20, 2002 - Quanta Services, Inc. (NYSE: PWR), a
leading provider of specialized contracting services to the electric power, gas,
telecommunications and cable television industries, and Aquila, Inc. ((NYSE:
ILA), formerly UtiliCorp United Inc.), an international energy and risk
management company and Quanta's largest stockholder, today announced that they
have reached an agreement for Aquila to terminate its proxy contest for control
of Quanta's Board of Directors. Quanta's May 23, 2002 annual meeting of
stockholders has been postponed and is expected to be held in late June 2002. As
part of the settlement, Quanta has reinstated its $75 million open market stock
repurchase program, under which approximately $60 million of capacity remains.

Under the terms of the agreement, Aquila will withdraw all pending litigation
and arbitration against Quanta. The settlement calls for a 10-person Board with
Aquila retaining its three designees, and with three Quanta designees, three
independent Directors and one Limited Vote Common Stock Director. One of the
independent Directors will be designated by Quanta, one by Aquila and the third
will be chosen by the two other independent Directors. Aquila Directors will be
represented on all Board committees except those required to consist solely of
independent Directors. The Board's compensation committee will establish and
administer stock retention guidelines for senior executive officers.

Quanta and Aquila have also agreed to a standstill whereby Aquila will not
purchase Quanta shares on the open market and will not wage another proxy fight
for control of Quanta. Aquila retains the right to commence a tender offer to
increase its ownership to a majority stake in Quanta, but consummation of any
such offer is subject to approval of a designated committee of independent
directors. If Aquila's ownership stake exceeds 50%, Aquila will have the right
to designate a majority of the directors to Quanta's Board and significant
provisions will protect minority stockholders. Also as part of the agreement,
Quanta will terminate the Stock Employee Compensation Trust (SECT) at no cost to
the Company.

Separately, Quanta announced that John R. Colson, Quanta's chief executive
officer, has been named chairman of the Board effective immediately. Colson
said, "We are very pleased to have reached this agreement with Aquila and
strongly believe that it is in the best interests of all of our stockholders,
customers and employees. We now have a clear understanding with our largest
stockholder while protecting the interests of our other public stockholders. We
believe that Quanta is well positioned to continue to generate strong results
and create value for its stockholders."

Robert K. Green, president and chief executive officer of Aquila, said, "We are
pleased to have reached this settlement with Quanta, which remains the leader in
its industry with its strong and dedicated work force. It is time to end the
dispute and redirect all of our efforts to creating value for stockholders. We
agree that this settlement is in the best interests of all Quanta stockholders,
customers and employees, and we look forward to working with Quanta's management
to further enhance long-term stockholder value. We believe Quanta has a strong
foundation for improved financial and stock performance, particularly as
economic conditions improve."

Colson concluded, "I want to thank all of Quanta's employees for their constant
support and dedication to our business through what has been a distracting
process. The past three months have reinforced just how tremendous a company
Quanta is. We look forward to continuing to provide all Quanta customers with
the same high-levels of service to which they have grown accustomed."
