NII Holdings Announces Second Quarter 2011 Results Company Achieves Record Level of Quarterly Operating Income Before Depreciation and Amortization

RESTON, Va., July 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Net subscriber additions of 382,000
  • Consolidated operating revenues of $1.75 billion
  • Consolidated operating income before depreciation and amortization (OIBDA) of $473 million
  • Consolidated operating income of $301 million and consolidated net income of $114 million, or $0.67 per basic share

NII Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: NIHD) today announced its consolidated financial results for the second quarter of 2011.  During the quarter, the company added 382,000 net subscribers to its network, bringing its ending subscriber base to more than 9.8 million, a 20 percent increase in the ending subscriber base compared to the subscriber base on June 30, 2010.  Financial results for the quarter included consolidated operating revenues of $1.75 billion, a 29 percent increase compared to the second quarter of 2010, and consolidated OIBDA of $473 million, a 36 percent increase compared to the same period last year.  OIBDA for the second quarter of 2011 includes almost $17 million related to the recovery of interconnection costs attributable to the first quarter of 2011 based on the retroactive application of new mobile termination rates in Mexico to January 1, 2011.  For the second quarter of 2011, the company generated consolidated operating income of $301 million and consolidated net income of $114 million, or $0.67 per basic share.

The company continues to invest in the expansion of the coverage and capacity of its networks and the development and deployment of its new third generation networks.  Consolidated second quarter 2011 capital expenditures were $304 million, with $210 million of that amount invested in Brazil and Mexico and $129 million of that amount invested in the company's third generation networks.    

"Our strong operational metrics and focus on profitable growth drove the highest level of quarterly OIBDA in our history, supported in part by the recent decision by the regulators in Mexico to reduce mobile termination rates," said Steve Dussek, NII Holdings' chief executive officer.  "Our business continues to build momentum as we prepare to launch our Push-to-Talk (PTT) service on our new W-CDMA network in Peru and deploy our 3G networks in Brazil, Mexico and Chile. We believe these new networks will continue to differentiate our services from the competition, while providing us with more products and services that meet the needs of our valuable customer base."

NII Holdings' consolidated average monthly service revenue per subscriber (ARPU) was $51 for the second quarter of 2011, up $4 when compared to the same period last year, driven primarily by improving local currency exchange rates. The company also reported churn of 1.71 percent for the second quarter, consistent with the level reported for the same period last year.  Consolidated cost per gross add (CPGA) was $305 for the second quarter of 2011, a $19 increase compared to the second quarter of 2010.  This increase resulted from a combination of stronger local currency exchange rates and additional marketing initiatives in preparation for the company's upcoming 3G launches.

The company ended the quarter with $4.4 billion in total long-term debt and $2.9 billion in consolidated cash and investments, resulting in net debt at the end of the quarter of $1.5 billion.

"Our focus on attracting and retaining the most valuable customers in the industry has enabled us to deliver strong results during the period, as we generated a 20 percent increase in our ending subscriber base, a 30 percent increase in revenues and a 36 percent increase in OIBDA over the second quarter of last year," said Gokul Hemmady, NII's executive vice president and chief financial officer.  "While our customer growth for the second quarter puts us slightly behind our mid-year goal, we have taken steps that we believe will position us to improve our sales productivity in the second half of the year. Taking into consideration those actions and our strong revenue and OIBDA growth during the first half of the year, we are increasing our 2011 guidance with respect to revenues, OIBDA and capital expenditures and maintaining our guidance with respect to net subscriber additions."

2011 Guidance

As a result of strong financial and operating results and improving currency trends across most markets during the first half of the year, NII Holdings is updating its previously announced 2011 guidance for revenues, OIBDA and capital expenditures and is maintaining its 2011 guidance for net subscriber additions. The company's revised guidance for 2011 is as follows:

  • The company's OIBDA guidance includes the impact of an estimated $75 million of non-cash equity compensation expense.  

The company's updated 2011 outlook is predicated on a number of assumptions including the assumption that foreign exchange rates and general economic conditions in its markets will remain relatively stable during the remainder of the year. In addition to the preliminary results prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP) provided throughout this press release, NII has presented consolidated OIBDA, ARPU, CPGA and net debt.

Operating Income Before Depreciation and Amortization

Consolidated operating income before depreciation and amortization, or OIBDA, represents operating income before depreciation and amortization expense.  Consolidated OIBDA is not a measurement under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, may not be similar to consolidated OIBDA measures of other companies and should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information contained in our statements of operations.  We believe that consolidated OIBDA provides useful information to investors because it is an indicator of operating performance, especially in a capital intensive industry such as ours, since it excludes items that are not directly attributable to ongoing business operations.  Our consolidated OIBDA calculations are commonly used as some of the bases for investors, analysts and credit rating agencies to evaluate and compare the periodic and future operating performance and value of companies within the wireless telecommunications industry.  Consolidated OIBDA can be reconciled to our consolidated statements of operations as follows (in millions):

*  The Company's guidance estimate for OIBDA for the year ending December 31, 2011 includes the impact of approximately $75 million of non-cash equity compensation expense. This estimate is predicated on a number of assumptions, including the assumption that foreign currency exchange rates and general economic conditions in its markets will remain relatively stable during the year. The information regarding the Company's outlook and objectives for 2011, including its guidance estimate for OIBDA for the year ended December 31, 2011, is forward looking and is based upon management's current beliefs, as well as a number of assumptions concerning future events, and as such, should be taken in the context of the risks and uncertainties identified in the "Safe Harbor" Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 included above and of the risks and uncertainties outlined in the SEC filings of NII Holdings, Inc., including the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010 and the Company's other filings with the SEC.

Average Monthly Revenue Per Handset/Unit in Service (ARPU)

Average monthly revenue per handset/unit in service, or ARPU, is an industry term that measures service revenues, which we refer to as subscriber revenues, per period from our customers divided by the weighted average number of handsets in commercial service during that period.  ARPU is not a measurement under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, may not be similar to ARPU measures of other companies and should be considered in addition, but not as a substitute for, the information contained in our statements of operations.  We believe that ARPU provides useful information concerning the appeal of our rate plans and service offerings and our performance in attracting and retaining high value customers.  Other revenue includes revenues for such services as roaming, handset maintenance, cancellation fees, analog and other.  ARPU can be calculated and reconciled to our consolidated statement of operations as follows (in millions, except ARPU):

Cost per gross add, or CPGA, is an industry term that is calculated by dividing our selling, marketing and handset and accessory subsidy costs, excluding costs unrelated to initial customer acquisition, by our new subscribers during the period, or gross adds.  CPGA is not a measurement under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, may not be similar to CPGA measures of other companies and should be considered in addition, but not as a substitute for, the information contained in our statements of operations.  We believe CPGA is a measure of the relative cost of customer acquisition.  CPGA can be calculated and reconciled to our consolidated statements of operations as follows (in millions, except CPGA):

Net Debt

Net debt represents total long-term debt less cash, cash equivalents, short-term and long-term investments. Prior to 2008, we calculated net debt as total long-term debt less cash and cash equivalents. In the second quarter of 2010, we extended the permissible investment maturity dates for cash investments, which resulted in the classification of some of our cash investments as long-term investments. As a result, we now include long-term investments with the items subtracted from long-term debt to calculate net debt. Net debt is not a measurement under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, may not be similar to net debt measures of other companies and should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information contained in our balance sheets.  We believe that net debt and net debt to consolidated operating income before depreciation and amortization provide useful information concerning our liquidity and leverage. Net debt as of June 30, 2011 can be calculated as follows (in millions):


NII Holdings, Inc.

Total long-term debt

$          3,360.7

Add: debt discounts

Less: cash and cash equivalents

Less: short-term investments
