- Another Quarter of Sequential Earnings Growth
- Restoration of US Virgin Islands Network Almost Complete

  • Revenues: $121.1 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA1: $38.9 million
  • Operating income: $30.8 million   
  • Net income attributable to ATN stockholders: $17.0 million, or $1.06 per diluted share

BEVERLY, Mass., Oct. 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ATN (Nasdaq: ATNI) today reported results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018.

Business Review and Outlook

“Our third quarter results largely followed the same favorable trends as the second quarter.  We continued to see sequential growth in profitability, reflecting positive comparisons in our international telecom operations and the receipt of additional FCC USF support,” said Michael Prior, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  “More specifically, International Telecom’s operating performance benefitted from continued margin expansion in many of our markets, and progress in re-building our U.S. Virgin Islands network, which was destroyed by the September 2017 hurricanes.  We have made significant investments well beyond the additional FCC support to re-build our networks in the USVI, and network performance levels now exceed those that prevailed before the 2017 hurricanes. At this point, our network re-build is substantially complete, though work is continuing in some of the more challenging geographical areas.  However, we believe it will be some time before our wireline service revenues in that market will reach pre-storm levels.   Our U.S. Telecom operation performed in line with our expectations, which has kept us on track to meet our segment revenue guidance of $110 million to $120 million for full year 2018.  In the third quarter we participated in the Connect America Phase II auction to bring fixed broadband and voice services to rural areas in the U.S., and were awarded $79 million in funding over the next 10 years, subject to FCC build out and coverage requirements.  The coverage areas are generally in the Southwestern United States and around our existing mobile network coverage areas.

“In addition to the underlying sequential earnings growth achieved in the third quarter, operating and net income benefitted from a gain on the completion of our previously-disclosed sale of approximately 100 wholesale cell sites in the U.S. Telecom segment. Similarly, we expect to report an additional gain in this year’s fourth quarter following the completion of our recently-announced sale of our U.S. solar portfolio if the transaction closes as and when expected. At the same time, we are continuing to invest in solar power facilities in other markets and look for other opportunities in the renewable energy sector as well.

“As mentioned last quarter, we have several initiatives under way in which we have invested some of our balance sheet capacity in early-stage small businesses to pursue growth.  We remain optimistic that with pressure on large carriers to seek better network economics and focus internal spending on areas of strategic differentiation, there will be opportunities for us to put capital to work in shared infrastructure solutions,” Mr. Prior noted.

Third Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Third quarter 2018 revenues of $121.1 million were relatively flat compared to the $122.1 million reported for the third quarter of 2017 which was also impacted by the 2017 hurricanes. The sale of our British Virgin Islands business in late 2017 and the destruction of much of our U.S. Virgin Islands wireline network from the 2017 hurricanes reduced revenue by approximately $2.6 million. Additionally, U.S. wireless revenues declined $8.0 million, as anticipated, due to previously-agreed revenue caps and other contract changes.  These reductions were mostly offset by revenue from an additional $7.2 million of USF high cost support funding from the FCC for our U.S. Virgin Islands business and increases in international wireless and broadband revenues.  Adjusted EBITDA1 for the third quarter of 2018 was $38.9 million, or 3% above the prior year period, primarily due to margin expansion and the additional USF funding received this quarter in the International Telecom segment offsetting the revenue declines in the U.S. Telecom segment.  Operating income for the third quarter was $30.8 million, including a net gain on sale of fixed assets of $13.5 million, compared to the prior year operating loss of $19.6 million, which included $36.6 million of losses from damaged assets and other hurricane related charges.  Net income attributable to ATN’s stockholders for the third quarter was $17.0 million or $1.06 per diluted share compared with the prior year period’s net loss attributable to ATN stockholders of $24.8 million or $1.53 per share.   

Revenues for the first nine months of 2018 were $343.4 million, 8% below the $373.5 million reported for the same period in 2017.  This revenue decline reflects the nine-month impact of the revenue changes highlighted in the third quarter comparison.  Correspondingly, Adjusted EBITDA1 for the first nine months of 2018 was $101.2 million, a decrease of 14% from the prior year period and operating income for the first nine months of 2018 was $50.8 million compared with the prior year period’s operating income of $14.0 million, which included $36.6 million of losses from damaged assets and other hurricane related charges.  Net income attributable to ATN stockholders for the first nine months of 2018 was $18.7 million or $1.16 per diluted share, compared with the prior year period’s net loss attributable to ATN stockholders of $12.0 million or $0.74 per share.

Third Quarter 2018 Operating Highlights

The Company has three reportable segments: (i) U.S. Telecom; (ii) International Telecom; and (iii) Renewable Energy. 

U.S. Telecom

U.S. Telecom revenues consist mainly of wireless revenues from our voice and data wholesale roaming operations and our smaller retail operations in the Southwestern United States, as well as enterprise and wholesale wireline revenues.  Total U.S. Telecom segment revenues were $31.8 million in the third quarter of 2018, a 21% decline from the $40.1 million reported in the third quarter of 2017.  U.S. wireless revenues decreased 21% to $29.8 million compared with $37.8 million in the prior year quarter due to the impact of previously agreed upon wholesale wireless contract changes and the completion of the sale of approximately 100 wholesale wireless cell sites early in the third quarter of 2018.

U.S. Telecom Adjusted EBITDA1 of $13.5 million in the third quarter of 2018 decreased 38% compared to the prior year period’s $21.7 million.  The decline was mostly due to the reduction in wireless revenues and the sale of sites noted above, along with the cost of our earlier stage business initiatives.    

International Telecom

International Telecom consists of a broad range of information and communications services including wireline and wireless data, internet, voice and video service revenues from our operations in Bermuda and the Caribbean.  International Telecom revenues were $83.9 million in the third quarter of 2018, a 9% increase from the $77.0 million reported in the third quarter of 2017 mainly due to increased wireless and broadband revenues in Guyana, the Cayman Islands and Bermuda, and supported by additional USF funding of $7.2 million by the FCC for high cost support received in the quarter. These positive developments more than offset a reduction of approximately $1.6 million in revenue from the extensive network damage in the U.S. Virgin Islands, as well as a $1.0 million revenue reduction due to the sale of our British Virgin Islands business in the third quarter of 2017. While we expect continued sequential revenue improvement in the fourth quarter (excluding the Q3 USF revenue benefit), the level of damage to the U.S. Virgin Islands economy and our customer base and the move by some to secure alternative services may mean that it will take some time before we see a full return to pre-storm levels in that market.  We have significantly invested in re-building the network and have expanded and accelerated plans to build additional resiliency and capabilities into our USVI network.

International Telecom Adjusted EBITDA1 of $28.6 million in the third quarter increased 41% from $20.3 million in the prior year period.  The increase is primarily the result of the noted additional USF revenue benefit in the U.S. Virgin Islands and in the growth in other markets against a backdrop of improving operating margins.

Renewable Energy

Renewable Energy segment revenues are generated principally by the generation and sale of energy and solar renewable energy credits from our commercial solar projects in the United States and India.  For the third quarter of 2018, revenues from our renewable energy business were $5.4 million, an increase of 8% from $5.0 million in the prior year period due mainly to higher revenue generated from newly completed solar projects in India.  The growth in India power production revenue also drove an increase in Adjusted EBITDA1 for the Renewable Energy segment to $3.1 million in the third quarter, up $0.5 million from the prior year’s quarter.

The sale of our U.S. solar portfolio currently is expected to close in the fourth quarter and we expect to record a gain on this sale.  The transaction will reduce this segment’s revenue and Adjusted EBITDA1 compared to the prior year periods beginning in the period of the sale.  In the third quarter of 2018 the U.S. solar portfolio had revenues of $4.2 million.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Highlights

Total cash at September 30, 2018 was $174.0 million.  Additionally, the Company ended the third quarter with $0.3 million in short-term investments.  Net cash provided by operating activities was $98.0 million for the first nine months of 2018, compared with $122.0 million for the prior year period.  The decrease in net cash provided by operating activities is primarily due to the revenue reductions in the U.S. Telecom wireless business and the wireline business in the U.S. Virgin Islands.  During the first nine months of 2018, the Company used net cash of $143.6 million for investing and financing activities.  This included $78.9 million of capital expenditures for network repairs and resiliency enhancements to the network following the 2017 hurricanes in the U.S. Virgin Islands, $75.4 million in other capital expenditures and $15.3 million in partner distributions. The $78.9 million of repairs and resiliency enhancements were partially offset by $34.6 million of insurance proceeds and $15.4 million of FCC USF support. We also estimate that capital expenditures in the telecom segments for the full year 2018 will be between $90.0 and $95.0 million, as we see strong customer demand for the fiber network expansions in the International Telecom segment, and have accelerated certain of the growth capital expenditures planned for 2019 into 2018.

The pending sale of the U.S. solar business resulted in the classification of the related assets and liabilities of that business as held for sale as of September 30, 2018.  As a result, $97.5 million of assets and $80.7 million of liabilities are presented as held for sale on the balance sheet as of September 30, 2018.
