CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FairPoint Communications, Inc. (NasdaqCM: FRP) ("FairPoint" or the "Company"), a leading communications provider, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.  As previously announced, the Company will host a conference call and simultaneous webcast to discuss its results at 8:30 a.m. (ET) on Tuesday, August 6, 2013.

"Our performance this quarter demonstrates continued success in the execution of our four-pillar strategy," said CEO Paul H. Sunu. "Our revenue trend is very encouraging and we believe we have entered into a period of revenue stabilization while generating sustainable cash flow to create long-term value for our shareholders."

Operating Highlights

FairPoint continued the positive momentum in its growth-oriented business and broadband products.  Growth in business and broadband products is a key component of FairPoint's strategy to transform its revenue composition and offset continued erosion in the Company's legacy access products like residential voice. In the second quarter, data and Internet services revenue grew 11% versus a year ago as products like FairPoint's Ethernet retail service offerings continued to attract new customers.  In fact, data and Internet services revenue increased 5% sequentially in the second quarter, marking the Company's largest sequential growth rate since this time last year.  

Ethernet services contributed approximately $14 million of revenue in the second quarter of 2013 as compared to $10 million a year ago, as retail and wholesale Ethernet circuits grew 49.2% 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.

Broadband subscribers, pro forma for divestitures, grew 4.2% year-over-year and 0.8% sequentially - an acceleration of year-over-year growth for the fourth consecutive quarter. FairPoint added more than 13,000 broadband subscribers during the last 12 months, as penetration reached 36.4% of the Company's voice access lines at June 30, 2013.

Voice access lines, pro forma for divestitures, declined 7.5% year-over-year as compared to 7.8% a year ago.  The improvement was driven largely by a slowdown in the rate of loss in business voice access lines, which declined 2.1% year-over-year as compared to 3.3% a year ago.

As of June 30, 2013, FairPoint had 3,255 employees, a decrease of 4.5% versus a year ago.  Headcount declined by 66 employees, or 2.0%, in the second quarter of 2013 due in part to a previously announced workforce reduction.  In that announcement, FairPoint disclosed its reduction of approximately 30 management personnel during the first quarter of  2013 and 90 bargained-for positions thereafter in fiscal year 2013. The management and bargained-for reductions are expected to result in annualized operating expense savings of approximately $11 million, with the full benefit realized beginning in 2014.

FairPoint plans to discontinue its participation with the National Exchange Carrier Association (NECA) in its special access rate of return pool for wholesale DSL services for certain of its rural operating companies.  This regulatory election will have the impact of lowering revenue from the pool, which will be more than offset by the expenses no longer required to be paid into the pool.  Beginning in the third quarter of 2013, the change is anticipated to decrease revenue by $1.7 million per quarter while increasing Adjusted EBITDA by over $140,000 per quarter.

Financial Highlights

Second Quarter 2013 as compared to First Quarter 2013

Revenue decreased less than $1 million during the second quarter of 2013 to $235 million.  Adjusting for the impact of the sale of the Idaho-based operations on Jan. 31, 2013, revenue was nearly equal to that in the first quarter of 2013.  Minor declines in voice services and access revenues were offset by growth in data and Internet services and other services revenues. Data and Internet services revenue increased as subscribers and retail Ethernet circuits grew. Other services revenues increased due to the completion of certain construction projects. 

Adjusting for items that are added back in the computation of Adjusted EBITDA, operating expenses were $169 million in the second quarter of 2013 as compared to $172 million in the first quarter of 2013.  The decrease was primarily the result of lower building-related expenses, cost of services and bad debt expense, partially offset by higher contracted services. 

Adjusted EBITDA was $66 million in the second quarter of 2013 as compared to $64 million in the first quarter of 2013. The reduction in adjusted operating expenses more than offset the sequential decline in revenue as described above.

Capital expenditures were $27 million in the second quarter of 2013 as compared to $30 million in the first quarter of 2013.

Unlevered Free Cash Flow, which measures Adjusted EBITDA minus capital expenditures, pension contributions and cash payments for other post-employment benefits ("OPEB"), was $35 million in the second quarter of 2013 as compared to $33 million in the first quarter of 2013.  Unlevered Free Cash Flow was higher in the second quarter of 2013 as higher Adjusted EBITDA and lower capital expenditures more than offset the pension contribution in the second quarter of 2013. Aggregate pension and OPEB payments are expected to be $20 million for the full year, which includes FairPoint's intention to make voluntary contributions to its pension plans in fiscal year 2013.

Net loss was $43 million in the second quarter of 2013 as compared to a net loss of $47 million in the first quarter of 2013.  The change was due primarily to lower total operating expenses and first quarter's loss on the debt refinancing, partially offset by a lower tax benefit and first quarter's gain from the sale of the Idaho-based operations. 

Cash was $27 million as of June 30, 2013, as compared to $17 million as of March 31, 2013.  Total debt outstanding was $938 million after taking into consideration the regularly scheduled amortization payment of $1.6 million during the second quarter of 2013, as compared to $940 million as of March 31, 2013.  The Company's $75 million revolving credit facility is undrawn, with $57 million available for borrowing after applying $18 million for outstanding letters of credit.

Second Quarter 2013 as compared to Second Quarter 2012

Revenue was $235 million in the second quarter of 2013 as compared to $243 million a year earlier.  Adjusting for the impact of the sale of the Idaho-based operations on Jan. 31, 2013, revenue declined $7 million versus a year earlier.  The change was due primarily to a decline in voice services and access revenues, which was partially offset by growth in data and Internet services revenue.  The loss of voice access lines versus a year ago led to a decrease in voice services revenue, while a decline in switched access minutes of use led to lower switched access revenue.  In addition, customers continued to migrate from legacy access products such as DS1, DS3, frame relay and private line to wholesale Ethernet-based products, which tend to have lower average revenue per unit. 

Adjusting for items that are added back in the computation of Adjusted EBITDA, operating expenses were $169 million in the second quarter of 2013 as compared to $173 million a year earlier.  The decrease was primarily the result of lower cost of services and lower bad debt expense, partially offset by lower capitalized labor. Although FairPoint had reduced its workforce, labor intensive capital projects were also lower in fiscal year 2013 resulting in a reduction of capitalized labor and a corresponding increase in operating expenses.

Adjusted EBITDA was $66 million in the second quarter of 2013 as compared to $73 million a year earlier.  The second quarter of 2012 was favorably impacted by a reversal of certain bankruptcy claims, which resulted in a $3 million increase to Adjusted EBITDA as compared to the second quarter of 2013.  The remaining variance is explained by the revenue decline discussed above, partially offset by improvement in adjusted operating expenses.

Capital expenditures were $27 million in the second quarter of 2013 as compared to $32 million a year earlier.  The decrease year-over-year was due primarily to regulatory build-out requirements in fiscal year 2012.

Unlevered Free Cash Flow of $35 million in the second quarter of 2013 was equal to the $35 million a year earlier.  The stability was due primarily to lower Adjusted EBITDA, which was offset by lower capital expenditures and smaller pension contributions in the second quarter of 2013. 

Net loss was $43 million in the second quarter of 2013 as compared to a net loss of $37 million in the second quarter of 2012.  The change was due primarily to a combination of lower revenues described above and higher interest expense, partially offset by lower depreciation expense and the absence of the significant reversal of certain bankruptcy claims that occurred in the second quarter of 2012.

2013 Guidance

FairPoint's fiscal year 2013 guidance remains unchanged.

The Company expects to generate $100 million to $110 million of Unlevered Free Cash Flow in 2013.  In addition, Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be $255 million to $265 million, capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $135 million and aggregate pension contributions and cash OPEB payments are expected to be approximately $20 million.

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 adjustments to GAAP and non-GAAP measures to exclude the effect of special items. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides a useful measure of operational and financial performance and removes variability related to pension contributions and OPEB payments 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 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.  In addition, management believes that the adjustments to GAAP and non-GAAP measures to 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.

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.

Some statements herein or discussed on our earnings conference call are known as "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.  These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements about the Company's plans, objectives, expectations and intentions and other statements contained herein that are not historical facts. When used herein, the words "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks," "estimates" and similar expressions are generally intended to identify forward-looking statements. Because these forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties, there are important factors that could cause actual results, events or developments to differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements, including the Company's plans, objectives, expectations and intentions and other factors. You should not place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements, which are based on the information currently available to us and speak only as of the date hereof. The Company does not undertake any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.  However, your attention is directed to any further disclosures made on related subjects in the Company's subsequent reports filed with the SEC.

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. Guidance is based upon a number of assumptions and estimates that, while presented with numerical specificity, are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are beyond the Company's control and are based upon specific assumptions with respect to future business decisions, some of which will change. Management generally states possible outcomes as high and low ranges which are intended to provide a sensitivity analysis as variables are changed but are not intended to represent actual results, which could fall outside of the suggested ranges. The principal reason that the Company releases this data is to provide a basis for management to discuss the Company's business outlook with analysts and investors. 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 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 or loss are contained in the attachments to this press release.

(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 restructuring, 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 and subscriber lines are presented pro forma for the divestiture of our Idaho-based operations and pay phone operations in our northern New England footprint.

(3) Wholesale access lines include Resale and UNE-P, but exclude UNE-L and special access circuits.

(4) Broadband subscribers include DSL, fiber-to-the-premise, cable modem and fixed wireless broadband, but exclude Ethernet and other high-capacity circuits.
