ATN Reports Second Quarter 2021 Results

Second Quarter 2021 Results Show Steady Performance

  • International Telecom Continues to Generate Revenue and Subscriber Growth
  • US Telecom Results Include Forecasted Increase in Operating Costs

Alaska Communications Acquisition Expected to Contribute Revenues of $105 million to $109 million and Adjusted EBITDA² of $27 million to $29 million from July 22nd to the end of 2021

BEVERLY, Mass., July 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ATN International, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATNI) today reported results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2021.

Business Review and Outlook

Michael Prior, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are excited about the opportunities ahead as we integrate Alaska Communications into our broader platform. The acquisition more than doubles the size of our US Telecom operations, scales our fiber network reach and provides attractive opportunities for expansion and growth. This investment is core to our strategy and history of creating value through owning and operating critical communications infrastructure in rural and remote markets.

“We see multiple opportunities to drive revenue growth by building on a strong base of contracted revenue and leveraging our expansive fiber network in Alaska and parts of the Lower 48. Our priorities include expanding anchor tenant fiber network builds and growing wholesale, enterprise and consumer connections utilizing that expanded network reach and capability. While we expect to gain modest cost savings net of integration expenses over the first year of our combination, our focus is on delivering high value revenue synergies.”

The Company expects Alaska Communications to contribute revenues of $105 million to $109 million and Adjusted EBITDA² of between $27 million and $29 million from the closing date of July 22nd to the end of 2021. This guidance does not assume any material contribution from the growth priorities outlined above, which are expected to be more additive to results in 2022 and beyond.

Mr. Prior continued, “In the second quarter, our International Telecom operations delivered revenue growth of 8%, driven by continued strong demand for broadband as well as higher mobile subscriber levels in many of our markets. EBITDA¹ margin comparisons were constrained as significant pandemic-related cost reductions in 2020 did not continue into 2021. Additionally, we incurred increased costs associated with the expansion of our managed services business, higher market-specific regulatory and license fees and one-time legal expenses. We expect this segment to benefit as travel and tourism return to pre-pandemic levels and we continue to invest in the expansion of our core network infrastructure.

“In our US Telecom segment, beyond the addition of Alaska Communications and its potential for fiber driven revenue and margin expansion, we continue to work on transitioning our legacy wholesale roaming business into a broader communications infrastructure platform by pursuing growth strategies in rural networks, which include middle mile fiber and enterprise and consumer data services, as well as in private network solutions. Given the breadth of the growth opportunities we have identified in these markets, we plan to explore strategic opportunities to attract outside financial partners who would provide additional funding to accelerate our market penetration. In particular, we believe our private networks business, which has attributes similar to software as a service and cloud platform businesses, could benefit from separate strategic funding and partnership opportunities that support accelerated growth.

“Since our founding in 1987, ATN has focused on bringing connectivity and resource solutions to historically under-served markets. We are exceedingly proud of our record of providing the latest, high quality communications infrastructure and services to communities that have long been overlooked by the larger players. We are pleased to see the growing investor interest in businesses that deliver positive social impacts to the communities they serve, and we believe the Alaska Communications acquisition reinforces our commitment to this strategy,” Mr. Prior noted.

Second Quarter 2021 Results

Second quarter 2021 consolidated revenues of $123.9 million were up 14% compared to the prior year quarter’s revenue of $109.1 million, driven by strong increases in broadband and mobility revenues in International Telecom and FirstNet construction revenues in the U.S. Telecom segment. The second quarter of 2021 had operating income of $2.9 million and Adjusted EBITDA2 of $25.2 million, which were both down compared with the prior year quarter’s operating income of $7.0 million and Adjusted EBITDA2 of $29.1 million. The decrease in operating income and Adjusted EBITDA was mainly driven by an increase in operating costs in the International Telecom segment and by higher development spending and lower margin revenues in the U.S. Telecom segment. Net income attributable to ATN’s stockholders for the second quarter was $2.0 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, compared with the prior year period’s net income attributable to ATN’s stockholders of $4.8 million, or $0.30 per diluted share.

Second Quarter 2021 Operating Highlights
The Company has three reportable segments: (i) International Telecom; (ii) US Telecom; and (iii) Corporate and all Other.

The Company completed its acquisition of Alaska Communications Systems on July 22, 2021. The acquired business will become part of the Company’s US Telecom segment beginning in the third quarter of 2021. The segment and consolidated information in the tables includes the performance of each of the Company and Alaska Communications for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021.

International Telecom 

International Telecom revenues are generated by delivery of a broad range of communications services, including data, voice and video services from the Company’s fixed and mobile network operations in Bermuda and the Caribbean as well as direct government payments as part of the FCC high-cost support program in the USVI. International Telecom revenues were $86.2 million for the quarter, an 8% increase year-on-year mainly due to increases in mobility and broadband revenues in multiple markets from increased subscribers and ARPU. Carrier services revenues also increased as tourism increased in the U.S. Virgin Islands following the expiration of pandemic-related restrictions for domestic travel. Compared to the prior year quarter, operating income remained flat at $14.6 million and Adjusted EBITDA2 decreased 1% to $28.4 million primarily due to increased operating costs compared to pandemic-related cost reductions in the prior year, higher regulatory and license fees and one-time legal expenses of $1.1 million. We have increased our equity ownership in One Communications, the Company’s Bermuda and Cayman based subsidiary, through equity repurchases and at the end of the second quarter of 2021 own approximately 78% of the outstanding equity compared to 59% at the end of prior year’s quarter. For the second quarter of 2021, ATN ownership represented 83% of the $28.4 million of Adjusted EBITDA2 for the segment.

US Telecom 

US Telecom revenues consist mainly of carrier services revenues and fixed enterprise and mobile retail revenues from the Company’s networks and operations in the western United States, as well as revenues from providing private networks for connectivity and automation to enterprise customers nationwide, and revenues from various government programs including CAF II, E-Rate, Lifeline and rural healthcare support programs. US Telecom segment revenues were $37.6 million in the quarter, an increase of 34% from the prior year period due mostly to $9.3 million of FirstNet construction revenues. Additionally, increases in rural broadband revenues were partially offset by declines in carrier services due to lower contractual roaming revenues. For the segment, the operating loss of $0.6 million and Adjusted EBITDA2 of $4.5 million compared unfavorably to the prior year’s quarter by $2.4 million and $3.0 million, respectively. This was a result of the anticipated operating expenses of approximately $3.0 million in the quarter, up $1.3 million over last year, to further fund the development of the private networks business. As anticipated, we also had increased network operating costs from the FirstNet and CARES sites that came on line in late 2020.

By the end of the second quarter of 2021, the Company had completed and activated approximately 40% of the total sites related to the network build portion of its FirstNet Agreement and expects to complete an additional 25% of the total build by the end of 2021. As revenues from the build will be largely offset by construction costs, the Company does not expect a material impact on operating income from this activity.  

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Highlights

Total cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash at June 30, 2021 totaled $96.0 million. Net cash provided by operating activities was $27.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared with $40.4 million for the prior year period. The decline in operating cash flow compared with the prior year is mostly the result of a current year decrease in operating income and an increase in the FirstNet construction customer receivable. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, the Company used net cash of $36.5 million for investing and financing activities compared to $76.7 million for the prior year period. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, the net use of cash was primarily attributable to $41.9 million in capital expenditures, which included $6.5 million of capital expenditures that are or will be reimbursed to us, $12.7 million of purchases of minority equity interests in our subsidiaries, $4.5 million in minority partner distributions and $5.4 million of dividends to Company stockholders. These uses of cash were partially offset by $18.6 million in net proceeds received from the completion of the Vibrant Energy equity sale and $17.6 million in new borrowings under the FirstNet receivables credit facility. Subsequent to the quarter, on July 22, 2021 the Company completed the acquisition of Alaska Communications and now owns approximately 52% of that company. The Company drew $73.0 million under its existing revolving credit facility to fund its portion of the merger consideration and subsequently repaid $10.0 million of that borrowing. In conjunction with the merger, Alaska Communications also entered into a new credit agreement that is non-recourse to the Company and borrowed $210.0 million under the term loan facility and $10 million under the $35.0 million revolving facility.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release also contains non-GAAP financial measures. Specifically, the Company has included EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA in this release and in the tables included herein.

EBITDA is defined as operating income (loss) before depreciation and amortization expense. The Company has defined Adjusted EBITDA as operating income (loss) before depreciation and amortization expense, transaction-related charges and the gain (loss) on disposition of assets. Alaska Communications has defined Adjusted EBITDA as operating income (loss) before depreciation and amortization expense, transaction and termination costs, the loss on disposal of assets, stock-based compensation and the net loss attributable to non-controlling interest. The Company believes that the inclusion of these non-GAAP financial measures help investors gain a meaningful understanding of the Company's core operating results and enhances the usefulness of comparing such performance with prior periods. Management uses these non-GAAP measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, as the basis for measuring the Company’s core operating performance and comparing such performance to that of prior periods. The non-GAAP financial measures included in this press 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 to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are set forth in the text of, and the accompanying tables to, this press release. While non-GAAP financial measures are an important tool for financial and operational decision-making and for evaluating the Company’s own operating results over different periods of time, the Company urges investors to review the reconciliation of these financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures included below, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate its business.

In the case of the Alaska Communications Acquisition contribution of Adjusted EBITDA guidance, we are unable to provide a formal reconciliation from operating income to Adjusted EBITDA as result of the impact of the cost of ongoing integration activities, transaction costs and the impact of purchase accounting on depreciation and amortization expenses over the period. The company will provide all actual operating income to Adjusted EBITDA reconciliations in its reporting for the third quarter of 2021.
