based on Quantas closing stock price on March 16, 2007. The combination of Quanta and InfraSource

will partner with customers to meet the immediate and growing need for strategic infrastructure
Under the terms of the merger agreement, approved by both Boards of Directors, InfraSource
stockholders will receive 1.223 shares of Quanta common stock for each outstanding common share of
InfraSource they own at closing. This represents a per share value of $30.13, or a 17.4% premium
over the closing price of InfraSource common stock on March 16, 2007. Upon closing, on a fully
diluted basis, Quanta and InfraSource stockholders are expected to own approximately 75% and 25%,
respectively, of the combined company. Based on 2006 results, the combined company would have
revenues of over $3.1 billion and adjusted EBITDA of over $270 million. The transaction is
expected to be accretive to Quantas earnings per share in 2008.
The addition of InfraSources complementary businesses, strategic geographic footprint and
talented employees will enhance Quantas resources and expand our service portfolio. As a combined
company, we will be well-positioned to serve all of our customers during a period of rapid growth
and increased transmission and distribution spending, said John R. Colson, chairman and chief
executive officer of Quanta. We intend to leverage our combined workforce of more than 16,000
employees to provide expanded services to our customers in both planned and emergency situations.
Colson added, We expect the combination to result in meaningful cost and operational synergy
opportunities, including the integration of project and asset management functions, improved
resource utilization, procurement and administrative cost savings, and enhanced cross-selling and
David R. Helwig, chairman and chief executive officer of InfraSource, commented, This transaction
represents a tremendous opportunity for our customers, stockholders and employees to share in the
significant upside potential of a stronger combined business. Together, InfraSource and Quanta
will create an industry-leading company with the scale and scope necessary to meet the growing
infrastructure needs of energy and communications providers across North America.
The combined company will have the ability to provide customers expanded infrastructure service
offerings from design and engineering, to installation and maintenance, to energized services and
emergency restoration. Along with enhancing and complementing Quantas electric power transmission
and distribution capabilities, InfraSource brings strength in substation engineering and
installation, gas distribution capabilities and dark fiber leasing to the combined company. In
addition, Quantas nationwide footprint will be strengthened, providing the company a broader
platform from which to grow its services.
The combined companys additional resources and superior service portfolio also position it to take
advantage of positive industry dynamics, which include electric utility companies increased
spending and outsourcing trends. In the power industry, the need to upgrade the nations aging and
congested transmission and distribution grid and the Energy Policy Act of 2005 are expected to
continue to drive increased investment in infrastructure. Additionally, utilities continue to move
toward outsourcing as a way to reduce costs while gaining superior service and improved
flexibility. In the telecommunications industry, the convergence of voice, video and data is
creating increased demand for fiber infrastructure to support the delivery of key next-generation
The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2007 subject to stockholder and
customary regulatory approvals. Quanta and InfraSource intend to file a joint proxy
statement/prospectus with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
