NTELOS Holdings Corp. Reports First Quarter 2015 Results

-Quarterly Revenues Up 7% over Prior Year in Western Markets

-Net Adds of 8,000 More than Doubled over Prior Year in Western Markets

-Successfully Completed Spectrum Sale in Eastern Markets

WAYNESBORO, Va., May 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- NTELOS Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ:NTLS, news, filings) ("nTelos" or the "Company") announced today operating and financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2015.

"The first quarter proved pivotal for us as we posted strong retail results and accomplished a number of key strategic objectives," said Rod Dir, Chief Executive Officer. "In our Western Markets, we added subscribers at a level not seen in years as customers responded to our strong retail offerings, driving improvements in both churn and gross add results. In addition, we closed the sale of spectrum in our Eastern Markets and completed the sale of most of our remaining owned towers. While we are pleased with our execution so far, we continue to take steps to realign our cost structure, strengthen our retail offerings and expand our LTE network. Moving forward, we are confident these actions will further enhance our competitive position and financial performance."

Western Markets First Quarter 2015 Financial and Recent Highlights

  • Western Markets  revenues increased 7% to $95.3 million for the first quarter 2015, compared to $89.2 million for the first quarter 2014;
  • Western Markets Adjusted EBITDA was $27.3 million for the first quarter 2015, compared to $33.3 million for the first quarter 2014. Adjusted EBITDA during the quarter reflected the absorption of corporate overhead previously allocated to the Eastern Markets and, consistent with our amended agreement with Sprint, reduced revenues from the Strategic Network Alliance ("SNA");
  • Postpaid churn of 1.7% was the Company's lowest quarterly churn since second quarter 2013;
  • Net adds of 8,000 were the Company's highest quarterly mark since 2007;
  • Completed the spectrum sale in Eastern Markets for gross proceeds of $56.0 million; and
  • Completed the sale of 91 Company owned towers for gross proceeds of approximately $39.3 million.

Business Outlook

On December 2, 2014, the Company announced a strategic refocus of its business operations on its Western Markets (West Virginia and western Virginia), where it has experienced strong operating performance, has a favorable competitive position for its branded retail offering and benefits operationally and financially from its Strategic Network Alliance ("SNA") with Sprint. The Company is currently in the process of winding down its operations in its Eastern Markets, which it expects to complete by November 15, 2015.

For the year ending December 31, 2015, the Company expects its full year 2015 Adjusted EBITDA to be between $100.0 million and $108.0 million, unchanged from the Company's guidance provided on February 26, 2015. This Adjusted EBITDA excludes restructuring costs and results from Eastern Markets business. Full year 2015 capital expenditures are still expected to be between $95.0 and $105.0 million, with expenditures to increase progressively throughout the remainder of the year.

Conference Call

The Company will host a conference call with investors and analysts to discuss its first quarter 2015 results this morning, May 1, 2015, at 9:00 ET. To participate, please dial 1-877-407-9120 in the U.S. and Canada and 1-412-902-1009 for international, approximately 10 minutes before the scheduled start of the call. The conference call and accompanying presentation will also be accessible live on the Investor Relations section of the Company's website at http://ir.ntelos.com.

An archive of the conference call will be available online at http://ir.ntelos.com beginning approximately one hour after the call. A replay will also be available via telephone by dialing 1-877-660-6853 in the U.S. and Canada or 1-201-612-7415 internationally and entering access code 13601222 beginning approximately one hour after the call and continuing until May 8, 2015.

Non-GAAP Measures

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income attributable to NTELOS Holdings Corp. before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, accretion of asset retirement obligations, transaction related costs, restructuring and asset impairment charges, gain/loss on sale or disposal of assets and derivatives, net income attributable to noncontrolling interests, other expenses/income, equity-based compensation charges, separation charges, secondary offering costs, adjustments for impact of recognizing deferred gain associated with towers sold to Grain Management  and adjustments for impact of recognizing a portion of the billed SNA contract revenues on a straight line basis.

ARPA, or average monthly revenue per account, is computed by dividing service revenues per period by the average number of accounts during that period. Please see the footnotes in the exhibits for a complete definition of this measure.

Adjusted EBITDA is a key metric used by investors to determine if the Company is generating sufficient cash flows to continue to produce shareholder value and provide liquidity for future growth. ARPA provides management with useful information concerning the appeal of the Company's postpay rate plans and service offerings and the Company's performance in attracting and retaining high value customers.

Adjusted EBITDA and ARPA are non-GAAP financial performance measures. They should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to measures determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). Please refer to the exhibits and materials posted on the Company's website for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial performance measures to the most comparable measures reported in accordance with GAAP and for a discussion of the presentation, comparability and use of such financial performance measures.

During the 2014 second quarter, the Company terminated approximately 2,100 postpay subscribers that repeatedly exceeded their terms and conditions relating to permitted usage. Additionally, the Company changed its business rules related to reporting of long-term, non-revenue prepay subscribers.  This change resulted in approximately 8,200 prepay subscribers being excluded from our ending subscriber base.  The impact of these Company-initiated terminations and change in business rules is reflected in our ending subscriber totals as of June 30, 2014, and is not reflected in our disconnections, net additions and churn calculations for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Effective 5/1/14, SNA Revenues include the impact of recognizing the fixed fee element of SNA contract revenues on a straightline basis, which is a reduction of billed revenue, and the non-cash consideration attributable to spectrum leases.  We have recognized an equal charge for spectrum lease expense within  cost of sales and services.

Average monthly revenue per account (ARPA) is computed by dividing postpay service revenues per period by the average number of postpay accounts during that period. ARPA as defined may not be similar to ARPA measures of other companies, is not a measurement under GAAP and should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information contained in the Company's consolidated statements of operations. The Company closely monitors the effects of new rate plans and service offerings on ARPA in order to determine their effectiveness.  ARPA provides management useful information concerning the appeal of NTELOS rate plans and service offerings and the Company's performance in attracting and retaining high-value customers.

During the 2014 second quarter, the Company terminated approximately 1,400 postpay subscribers that repeatedly exceeded their terms and conditions relating to permitted usage. Additionally, the Company changed its business rules related to reporting of long-term, non-revenue prepay subscribers.  This change resulted in approximately 4,700 prepay subscribers being excluded from our ending subscriber base.  The impact of these Company-initiated terminations and change in business rules is reflected in our ending subscriber totals as of June 30, 2014, and is not reflected in our disconnections, net additions and churn calculations for the periods ended June 30, 2014.

Effective 5/1/14, SNA Revenues include the impact of recognizing the fixed fee element of SNA contract revenues on a straightline basis, which is a reduction of billed revenue, and the non-cash consideration attributable to spectrum leases.  We have recognized an equal charge for spectrum lease expense within cost of sales and services.

Average monthly revenue per account (ARPA) is computed by dividing postpay service revenues per period by the average number of postpay accounts during that period. ARPA as defined may not be similar to ARPA measures of other companies, is not a measurement under GAAP and should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information contained in the Company's consolidated statements of operations. The Company closely monitors the effects of new rate plans and service offerings on ARPA in order to determine their effectiveness.  ARPA provides management useful information concerning the appeal of NTELOS rate plans and service offerings and the Company's performance in attracting and retaining high-value customers.
