"This acquisition enhances our engineering, distribution and transmission capabilities, substation construction services, gas distribution capabilities and industrial service offerings and adds a unique dark fiber leasing business. With a skilled, mobile workforce of 16,000 employees, the largest equipment fleet in the industry, innovative technologies and proprietary methodologies, we are better positioned to meet the growing demands of our customers."

"Our existing board is further strengthened by the addition of three former InfraSource directors," said Colson. "We welcome David R. Helwig, Frederick W. Buckman and J. Michal Conaway, who each bring industry experience and business insight to their new positions on the Quanta board."

In connection with the merger, Quanta will issue approximately 50.2 million shares of common stock to the stockholders of InfraSource as consideration for the acquisition, which represents approximately 25 percent of the outstanding shares of Quanta common stock, on a fully diluted basis, following the merger.
