ATN Reports First Quarter 2019 Results

April 24, 2019

First Quarter Results

-- International Telecom Operations Continued to Show Strong Growth -- U.S. Telecom Comparisons Reflected Impact of Lower Year-on-Year Wholesale Revenue and $3.5 Million Aggregate Effect of Asset Sale, Expiration of Certain Federal Subsidies, and Early Stage Business Expenses

BEVERLY, Mass., April 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ATN International, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATNI) today reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019.

Business Review and Outlook

“Overall financial results in the quarter benefited from our diversified business model,” said Michael Prior, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer. “Similar to the 2018 fourth quarter, the strong performance of our International Telecom operations partially offset the impact of lower domestic telecom revenues on our consolidated Adjusted EBITDA1 in the first quarter, a period in which year-over-year comparisons for the U.S. Telecom segment were especially difficult.

“The strong revenue growth in our International Telecom operations was broad-based, driven by data growth and share gains in certain markets and improved results from our U.S. Virgin Islands business following the 2017 hurricanes. This in turn led to improving margins and growth in Adjusted EBITDA1.

“Our U.S. Telecom business continued to manage through a difficult operating environment. Roughly 35%, or $3.5 million, of the year-on-year U.S. Telecom Adjusted EBITDA1 decline was due to the combined effect of the sale of 100 wholesale sites in mid- 2018, the end of the FCC Mobility Fund subsidies, and additional expenses related to the operations of our early stage business investments. Continued pressure on wholesale traffic volumes and rates, in what is already a typically a low seasonal traffic quarter for that business, accounted for the rest of the decline in Adjusted EBITDA1.

“Looking ahead, we expect our International Telecom businesses to continue to perform well, reflecting investments that we have made over the last several years in our networks, which have resulted in significant improvements in customer experience and the reach and breadth of our service offerings. We expect that the steady recovery of our U.S. Virgin Islands business will increase its contribution to overall operating segment results. In the second quarter, we expect our domestic wholesale revenues to improve sequentially and there are several initiatives underway to increase U.S. Telecom segment Adjusted EBITDA1 levels over the longer term. Additionally, we expect the funding of our award of the Connect America Fund ll program to begin to benefit U.S. Telecom segment’s revenues in the second half of 2019.

“Based on our current portfolio of businesses, we expect 2019 to be a year of strong cash flow generation for ATN as much of our major network investment in the International Telecom segment has been completed. We continue to closely monitor our domestic telecom capital expenditures to address reduced revenues as we work through other initiatives to grow revenue in the segment. In addition to our ongoing investments in promising earlier stage companies, we continue to evaluate opportunities within our areas of expertise that have the potential to be value-creating for ATN and its shareholders.”

First Quarter 2019 Financial Results

First quarter 2019 revenues of $103.3 million were comparable with the prior year revenues of $104.5 million. The $10.2 million or 15% increase in International Telecom revenues offset a $7.0 million or 25% decline in U.S. Telecom revenues, with approximately 70% of the decline due to lower wholesale traffic and the remaining 30% reflecting the effect of the prior year sale of wholesale wireless cell sites. Additionally, Renewable Energy segment revenues of $1.5 million were down $4.3 million from the prior year, reflecting the sale of the U.S. solar asset portfolio in late 2018. Operating income for the first quarter was $2.1 million compared with last year’s first quarter operating income of $4.2 million. Adjusted EBITDA1 for the first quarter of 2019 was $23.2 million, compared to $26.3 million in the prior year period, primarily reflecting the revenue decline in the U.S. Telecom segment and the sale of the U.S. solar portfolio. Net loss attributable to ATN’s stockholders for the first quarter was $1.6 million, or $0.10 loss per share compared with the prior year period’s loss of $5.6 million or $0.35 loss per share.

First Quarter 2019 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 wireless operations and our smaller retail operations in the Southwestern United States, as well as enterprise and wholesale wireline revenues. Lower U.S. Telecom segment revenues reflected a 25% decline in U.S. wireless revenues to $20.4 million, primarily due to the lower wholesale traffic, and the sale of approximately 100 wholesale wireless cell sites early in the third quarter of 2018. In addition to these factors, the decline in U.S. Telecom Adjusted EBITDA1 was due to the completion of our Mobility Fund I program and cessation of the related expense offsets, as well as the additional operating costs related to early stage business investments made in 2018.

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 increased 15% year-on-year mainly due to higher broadband revenues in several of our businesses including the U.S. Virgin Islands, as our operations recover from the 2017 hurricanes. While we expect continued sequential revenue improvement in 2019, exclusive of the additional non-recurring revenue from FCC support received in the second and third quarters of 2018, the level of damage to the U.S. Virgin Islands economy may impact our ability to fully return to pre-storm levels in that market. International Telecom Adjusted EBITDA1 increased 51%, primarily as a result of higher data revenues and the post-storm recovery.

Renewable Energy

Renewable Energy segment revenues are principally the result of the generation and sale of energy from our commercial solar projects in India. During the fourth quarter of 2018, ATN completed the sale of its portfolio of solar projects in the United States. As a result, first quarter 2019 revenues were $1.5 million, compared to $5.8 million in the prior year quarter, and Adjusted EBITDA1 amounted to $0.6 million, compared to $3.7 million in the first quarter of 2018. Year-on-year revenue and Adjusted EBITDA1 comparisons for this segment will be negative for the remainder of 2019 as a result of this transaction.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Highlights

Total cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2019 was $172.6 million. Additionally, the Company ended the first quarter with $5.3 million in short-term investments. Net cash provided by operating activities was $18.8 million for the first quarter of 2019, compared with $22.5 million for the prior year period. The decrease in operating cash flow compared with the prior year is mostly the result of the use of cash for working capital activity in the current year, partially offset by a $3.0 million increase in net income after tax. For the first quarter of 2019, the Company used net cash of $39.1 million for investing and financing activities. This included $17.8 million in capital expenditures, $10.0 million for the purchases of other investments and $5.0 million for the purchase of short-term investments. Management reaffirms its estimate for International Telecom capital expenditures to range from $50.0 million to $55.0 million for the full year 2019, approximately $100.0 million below 2018 levels. In the U.S. Telecom segment, we expect capital expenditures to be similar to 2018 levels, excluding new initiatives and early stage business spending.

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, ATN has Adjusted EBITDA in this release and in the tables included herein.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income attributable to ATN stockholders before (gain) loss on disposition of long-lived assets, restructuring charges, interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, transaction-related charges, other income or expense, loss on damaged assets and other hurricane charges, net of insurance recovery and net income attributable to non-controlling interests.

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 the usefulness of 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 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 used in this press release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is set forth in the text of, and the accompanying tables to, this press release. While our non-GAAP financial measures are an important tool for financial and operational decision-making and for evaluating our own operating results over different periods of time, we urge 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 our business.
