CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- FairPoint Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq: FRP) ("FairPoint" or the "Company"), a leading communications provider, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.  As previously announced, the Company will host a conference call and simultaneous webcast to discuss its results at 8:30 a.m. (EDT) on Tuesday, August 5, 2014.

"Once again, we delivered Adjusted EBITDA and Unlevered Free Cash Flow in line with our expectations despite continued pressures on legacy revenue," said Paul H. Sunu, Chief Executive Officer.  "We see positive signs in the business including continued growth in Ethernet revenue and broadband subscribers and we expect rate increases implemented in the second quarter and the return of seasonal customers to help support second half revenue.  In addition, we believe a continued focus on expenses should help drive Adjusted EBITDA and a strong back half of the year."

Operating Highlights

The Company experienced strong revenue growth in business, advanced data services such as Ethernet, high-capacity data transport and other IP-based services along with broadband services.

In the second quarter of 2014, data and Internet services revenue grew 10.1% versus a year ago as products like FairPoint's retail Ethernet service offerings continued to attract new customers and broadband subscribers increased.  Data and Internet services revenue increased sequentially in the second quarter, which is an increase for the sixth consecutive quarter.

Ethernet services contributed approximately $20.9 million of revenue, 9.3% of total revenue, in the second quarter of 2014 as compared to $15.5 million, 6.6% of total revenue, a year ago, as retail and wholesale Ethernet circuits grew 48.3% year-over-year.  Growth in the Company's Ethernet products is expected to continue based on demand from customers like regional banks, healthcare networks and wireless carriers.

FairPoint has continued to invest in its broadband network to increase capacity, broaden its reach and offer more competitive services.  Broadband subscribers grew by nearly 1,900 subscribers quarter-over-quarter, or 0.6% as penetration reached 39.3% of the Company's voice access lines at June 30, 2014.  We continue to see strong interest in our broadband products. 

Voice access lines declined 7.1% year-over-year as compared to 7.5% a year ago.  The slower decline was driven by a reduction in the rate of loss in business and wholesale access lines.

As of June 30, 2014, FairPoint had 3,160 employees, a decrease of 2.9% versus a year ago, largely due to attrition.

Two of the Company's collective bargaining agreements that cover the majority of its represented employees in northern New England expired on August 2, 2014.  We are operating without contracts and should a work stoppage occur the Company has contingency plans in place to ensure services to our customers. We cannot predict the outcome of these negotiations at this time. Employees could engage in strikes or other concerted activities, which could materially adversely impact our business, financial condition, results of operations, liquidity and/or the market price of our outstanding securities.

Financial Highlights

Second Quarter 2014 as compared to First Quarter 2014

Revenue decreased $5.0 million during the second quarter of 2014 to $225.6 million.

  • Voice services declined $0.7 million primarily resulting from fewer lines in service;
  • Access revenue declined $1.8 million primarily due to continued loss and conversion of legacy transport circuits offset by wholesale Ethernet growth;
  • Data and Internet services increased $1.7 million reflecting strength in broadband subscriber and retail Ethernet circuit growth; and
  • Other services decreased $4.2 million primarily driven by first quarter 2014 non-recurring revenue from certain special purpose construction projects.

Adjusting for items that are added back in the computation of Adjusted EBITDA, operating expenses were $161.4 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $166.4 million in the first quarter of 2014 primarily due to a lower bonus accrual, seasonally lower utility costs and lower contracted services.

Adjusted EBITDA remained consistent at $64.2 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the first quarter of 2014 due to lower operating expenses.

Capital expenditures were $34.9 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $28.1 million in the first quarter of 2014 due to our 2014 capital plan that includes more projects in the second and third quarters and fewer in the first and fourth quarters. 

Unlevered Free Cash Flow, which measures Adjusted EBITDA minus capital expenditures, pension contributions and cash payments for other post-employment benefits ("OPEB"), was $21.4 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $28.1 million in the first quarter of 2014.  Unlevered Free Cash Flow was lower in the second quarter of 2014 primarily due to higher capital expenditures.  

Net loss was $22.7 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $32.2 million in the first quarter of 2014.  The change was due primarily to a decrease in loss from operations of $12.5 million, mainly from lower accruals for compensated absences (paid time-off) and other operating expenses partially offset by lower revenue.  In addition, income tax benefit decreased $2.5 million in the second quarter.

Cash was $31.9 million as of June 30, 2014 compared to $31.7 million as of March 31, 2014.  Total gross debt outstanding was $932.0 million as of June 30, 2014, after taking into consideration the regularly scheduled principal payment of $1.6 million on the term loan made during the second quarter of 2014, as compared to $933.6 million as of March 31, 2014.  The Company's $75.0 million revolving credit facility is undrawn, with $58.6 million available for borrowing after applying $16.4 million of outstanding letters of credit.

Second Quarter 2014 as compared to Second Quarter 2013

Revenue was $225.6 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $234.5 million a year earlier.

  • Voice services declined $6.8 million resulting from the loss of voice access lines versus a year ago combined with lower long distance usage and the impact of certain promotional discounts on residential products that have now been discontinued;
  • Access revenue declined $4.1 million due to continued loss and conversion of legacy transport circuits to next generation fiber-based services and the exit from one National Exchange Carrier Association ("NECA") pool in the third quarter of 2013 partially offset by an increase in wholesale Ethernet revenue driven by legacy conversion and lower service quality penalties;
  • Data and Internet services increased $4.0 million reflecting strength in retail Ethernet services and broadband subscriber growth; and
  • Other services decreased $2.0 million primarily driven by additional revenue from certain special purpose construction projects in the second quarter of 2013.

Adjusting for items that are added back in the computation of Adjusted EBITDA, operating expenses were $161.4 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $168.6 million a year earlier.  The decrease was primarily the result of lower employee costs due to lower headcount, lower bonus accrual, lower direct costs resulting from the NECA pool exit and lower operating taxes partially offset by higher network related expenses.

Adjusted EBITDA was $64.2 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $66.4 million a year earlier.  The decrease is due to lower revenue partially offset by operating cost savings.

Capital expenditures were $34.9 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $27.4 million a year earlier.  The increase is primarily driven by the timing of project completion in the 2014 capital plan.

Unlevered Free Cash Flow of $21.4 million in the second quarter of 2014 declined compared to $34.8 million a year earlier.  The decrease was due primarily to increased pension contributions and capital expenditures in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the second quarter of 2013.

Net loss was $22.7 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $43.1 million in the second quarter of 2013.  The change was due primarily to lower operating expenses, including depreciation expense, offset by lower revenue and lower income tax benefit. 

1 Unlevered Free Cash Flow and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures.  Additional information regarding the calculation of Unlevered Free Cash Flow and Adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation to net income (loss) are contained in the attachments to this press release.

2014 Guidance

The Company expects to generate $100 million to $110 million of Unlevered Free Cash Flow.  Unlevered Free Cash Flow refers to Adjusted EBITDA minus capital expenditures, pension contributions and cash payments for OPEB. In addition, for fiscal 2014, Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be approximately $260 million and capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $120 million.  Aggregate cash pension contributions and cash OPEB payments are expected to be approximately $35 million.

The Company's results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 are subject to the completion of such quarterly report.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures, including but not limited to Adjusted EBITDA and Unlevered Free Cash Flow, and the adjustments to the most directly comparable GAAP measures used to determine the non-GAAP measures. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides a useful measure of operational and financial performance and removes variability related to pension and OPEB expenses and that Unlevered Free Cash Flow may be useful to investors in assessing the Company's ability to generate cash and meet its debt service requirements.  The Company believes that the non-GAAP measures, which also exclude the effect of special items, may be useful to investors in understanding period-to-period operating performance and in identifying historical and prospective trends that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP financial measures.  In addition, the non-GAAP measures are useful for investors because it enables them to view performance in a manner similar to the method used by the Company's management. The maintenance covenants contained in the Company's credit facility are based on Consolidated EBITDA, which is consistent with the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA included in the attachments to this press release.

However, the non-GAAP financial measures, as used herein, are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Furthermore, Adjusted EBITDA and Unlevered Free Cash Flow have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation from, or as an alternative to, net income or loss, operating income, cash flow or other combined income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP. Because of these limitations, Adjusted EBITDA, Unlevered Free Cash Flow and related ratios should not be considered as measures of discretionary cash available to invest in business growth or reduce indebtedness. The Company compensates for these limitations by relying primarily on its GAAP results and using Adjusted EBITDA and Unlevered Free Cash Flow only supplementally.  A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA and Unlevered Free Cash Flow to net loss or income is contained in the attachments to this press release.

Certain information contained herein or discussed on our earnings conference call may constitute guidance as to projected financial results and the Company's future performance that represent management's estimates as of the date hereof. This guidance, which consists of forward-looking statements, is prepared by the Company's management and is qualified by, and subject to, certain assumptions. Guidance is not prepared with a view toward compliance with published guidelines of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and neither the Company's independent registered public accounting firm nor any other independent expert or outside party compiles or examines the guidance and, accordingly, no such person expresses any opinion or any other form of assurance with respect thereto.

The Company does not accept any responsibility for any projections or reports published by any such outside analysts or investors. Guidance is necessarily speculative in nature and it can be expected that some or all of the assumptions of the guidance furnished by us will not materialize or will vary significantly from actual results. Accordingly, the Company's guidance is only an estimate of what management believes is realizable as of the date hereof. Actual results will vary from the guidance and the variations may be material. Investors should also recognize that the reliability of any forecasted financial data diminishes the farther in the future that the data is forecast. In light of the foregoing, investors are urged to put the guidance in context and not to place undue reliance on it.

(1) For purposes of calculating Adjusted EBITDA (in accordance with the definition of Consolidated EBITDA in the Company's credit agreement), the Company adjusts net (loss) income for interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, in addition to:

a) the add-back of aggregate pension and other post-employment benefits (OPEB) expense,

b) the add-back (or subtraction) of the adjustment to the compensated absences accrual to eliminate the impact of changes in the accrual,

c) the add-back of costs related to the reorganization, including professional fees for advisors and consultants,

d) the add-back of costs and expenses, including those imposed by regulatory authorities, with respect to casualty events, acts of God or force majeure to the extent they are not reimbursed from proceeds of insurance,

e) the add-back of other non-cash items, except to the extent they will require a cash payment in a future period, and

f) the add-back (or subtraction) of other items, including facility and office closures, labor negotiation expenses, non-cash gains/losses, non-operating dividend and interest income and other extraordinary gains/losses.

(2) Access lines are presented pro forma for the divestiture of our pay phone operations in our northern New England footprint and include Hosted Voice seats.
