  • Adjusted EBITDA1 of $39.7 million
  • Operating income of  $22.5 million included $2.5 million of  transaction-related costs

BEVERLY, Mass., Oct. 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ATN (NASDAQ:ATNI), today reported results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2015. Unless otherwise indicated, the discussion of the Company’s results is focused on its continuing operations, and comparisons are to the same period in the prior year. 

Third Quarter 2015 Results

“Third quarter results were in line with our overall expectations, reflecting a mix of factors affecting revenues and operating profitability that are consistent with the execution of our strategy,” said Michael Prior, Chief Executive Officer. 

Third quarter 2015 revenues were $96.8 million, 8% above the $89.4 million reported for the third quarter of 2014.  U.S. wireless business revenues benefited from positive year-on-year comparisons in retail operations and from a significant increase in data traffic across the expanded wholesale network. While lower contracted wholesale rates offset most of the positive revenue impact of volume gains, the Company views this as a value-enhancing strategy to generate steady long-term cash flows and provide an attractive outsourced network model for its carrier customers.  Additionally, year-over-year comparisons benefited from the addition of the solar operations acquired in late 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA1 for the third quarter was $39.7 million, a 3% decrease over the $41.0 million reported for the 2014 third quarter.  Third quarter Adjusted EBITDA1 results in the U.S. Wireless business reflected increased operating expenses related to expanded network coverage and the multiple technologies utilized to support the growth in traffic volume. The Company also incurred higher operating expenses this quarter in its Guyana operations, where approximately one-half of the increase is related to re-branding, legal and consulting expenses.”

Operating income was $22.5 million, down 20% compared to last year’s $28.2 million due to $2.5 million of one-time transaction-related charges, the increased expenses in Guyana and the impact of the U.S. wholesale increased traffic volume and reduced rates in the third quarter of 2015.  Net income from continuing operations attributable to ATN’s stockholders was $6.6 million or $0.41 per diluted share, a decrease from the $16.2 million or $1.01 per diluted share reported in last year’s third quarter due in large part to reduced operating income and an increase in the effective tax rate in the third quarter of 2015.

Nine Month 2015 Financial Results

Nine month revenues were $272.5 million, 10% above the $247.8 million reported for the same period in 2014.  Adjusted EBITDA1 was $114.3 million, up 10% from $104.1 million in the prior year period.  Operating income was $70.4 million, up 7% compared to last year’s $66.0 million.  Net income attributable to ATN’s stockholders was $12.8 million or $0.79 per diluted share compared with $35.5 million or $2.22 per diluted share in the prior year’s period.  Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 included a $19.9 million loss related to the deconsolidation of the non-controlling interest from the sale of our holdings in Turks and Caicos.  Excluding this one-time loss on deconsolidation, net income attributable to ATN’s stockholders2 was $32.7 million, or $2.03 per diluted share.

Acquisition Updates

“In October, we announced two strategically important transactions that are aligned with our approach of building out our service offerings in geographies where we see the potential to create long term value.” said Michael Prior, Chief Executive Officer.  “With the Innovative acquisition, which we expect to complete in mid-2016 pending regulatory approval, we will significantly increase our footprint in the U.S. Virgin Islands, adding wireline video, broadband and local voice services to our existing mobile services there. Our acquisition of a controlling interest in KeyTech Bermuda pairs our 43% ownership of CellOne with their 42% ownership and adds wireline voice, broadband and video services to our existing mobile services. KeyTech recently received shareholder approval for the transaction and we are now awaiting regulatory approval.

“Once completed, we expect these acquisitions to add approximately $180 – $200 million in annualized revenues and we are targeting normalized Adjusted EBITDA1 margins of 25% – 30% on a combined basis, inclusive of our existing businesses in those markets.

“In both cases, we are investing in markets and geographies we know well, and where we will have the ability to provide customers with a single connectivity solution for mobile and fixed telecom and media services.  After accounting for the cash outlays associated with these agreements, ATN still will have significant cash resources and debt capacity to invest in organic growth projects and to deploy in additional acquisitions, and we are actively reviewing opportunities in both categories,” Mr. Prior noted. “In particular, we are seeing a pickup in opportunities in the renewable energy segment and would like to put additional capital to work there.”

Third Quarter 2015 Operating Highlights

U.S. Wireless

U.S. wireless revenues primarily consist of voice and data revenues from the Company’s wholesale roaming operations and the Company’s smaller retail operations.  Total revenues from the U.S. wireless business were $47.0 million in the third quarter of 2015, an increase of 6% from the $44.3 million reported in the third quarter of 2014.  This increase was mainly driven by an increase in U.S. retail revenues.  U.S. wholesale revenues were slightly above prior year levels in the third quarter of 2015 as a result of expanded network and traffic volume offsetting lower wholesale rates, but in this year’s fourth quarter revenues are expected to be significantly below prior year results as the full impact of recent rate reductions is felt. The projected decline in the fourth quarter is partly due to traffic volumes exceeding certain annual pricing tiers which should mean that the associated revenues rebound in the first quarter of 2016. Data revenues accounted for 66% of U.S. wireless revenues in the 2015 third quarter and 68% in the 2014 third quarter.  The Company ended the third quarter of 2015 with 799 domestic base stations in service compared to 716 at the end of last year’s third quarter.

International Wireless

International wireless revenues include retail and wholesale voice and data wireless revenues from operations in Bermuda and the Caribbean. International wireless revenues were $20.4 million, a decrease of 5% from the $21.6 million reported in the third quarter of 2014, as a result of the sale of our Turks and Caicos operations in the first quarter of 2015, and lower wholesale roaming revenues in many of our Island properties due to anticipated rate declines.  We expect retail revenues to continue to grow but wholesale revenues to decline in our international markets over time.

Wireline  

Wireline revenues are generated by the Company’s wireline operations in Guyana, integrated voice and data and wholesale transport operations in New England and New York State, and domestic and international wholesale and retail long-distance voice services.  Wireline revenues were $21.8 million, up 1% from $21.5 million in the third quarter of 2014 resulting mainly from increases in broadband revenues in Guyana.  

Renewable Energy

Renewable energy revenues are generated principally by the sale of energy and solar renewable energy credits from our 28 commercial solar projects.  For the third quarter of 2015, revenues from our renewable energy business were $5.1 million, consistent with past quarters.

Reportable Operating Segments

The Company has five reportable segments: (i) U.S. Wireless; (ii) International Integrated Telephony, which operates in Guyana; (iii) Island Wireless, which generates its revenues and has its assets located in Bermuda and the Caribbean (iv) U.S. Wireline; and (v) Renewable Energy, which provides distributed generation solar power to corporate, utility and municipal customers in the United States.  Financial data on our reportable operating segments for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 are as follows (in thousands):

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Highlights

Cash and cash equivalents at September 30, 2015 were $397.8 million.  In addition, the Company holds $5.8 million of restricted cash related to our renewable energy business.  Net cash provided by operating activities of continuing operations was $113.1 million for the first nine months of 2015, compared with net cash provided by operating activities of continuing operations of $51.0 million in the first nine months of 2014.  The increase in the current year is due to increased net income attributable to ATN’s stockholders2 excluding the loss on deconsolidation, current year changes in working capital and prior year tax payments.  Capital expenditures were $46.0 million for the first nine months of 2015, and the Company expects full year 2015 telecom capital expenditures in the range of $60.0 million to $70.0 million. Capital expenditures in the Renewable Energy segment are more difficult to project, however the Company continues to actively pursue investments in this segment.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this news release also contains non-GAAP financial measures. Specifically, ATN has presented an Adjusted EBITDA measure and a net income measure exclusive of the results of loss on the deconsolidation of subsidiaries. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income attributable to ATN stockholders before income from discontinued operations, gain on disposal of discontinued operations, interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, transaction-related charges, other income or expense, and net income attributable to non-controlling interests. Net income attributable to ATN stockholders excluding loss on deconsolidation of subsidiary and the related earnings per diluted share is defined as net income attributable to ATN stockholders less the loss and tax impact of the deconsolidation of the subsidiary.  The Company believes that the inclusion of these non-GAAP financial measures helps investors gain a meaningful understanding of the Company’s core operating results and enhances comparing such performance with prior periods. ATN’s management uses these non-GAAP measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, as the basis for measuring our core operating performance and comparing such performance to that of prior periods. The non-GAAP financial measures included in this news release are not meant to be considered superior to or a substitute for results of operations prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures used in this news release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is set forth in the text of, and the accompanying tables to, this press release.
