Jose Mas, CEO of MasTec, said the following about the deal:

We believe that the addition of IEA’s union based clean energy power generation services, coupled with MasTec and IEA’s combined non-union craft labor capacity, will provide increased scale and capacity needed to meet expected growing customer demand for renewable power generation over the next decade.

Infrastructure and Energy Alternatives and MasTec are expecting the acquisition deal to close in the fourth quarter of 2022. Holders of IEA stock will need to vote in favor of the agreement. MasTec has already acquired an agreement from 35% of IEA shareholders to vote for the acquisition.
