NII Holdings Announces Second Quarter 2015 Results

-- Net loss of 64,000 subscribers, resulting in an ending subscriber base of 6.3 million

-- Consolidated operating revenues of $421 million

-- Consolidated adjusted operating loss before depreciation and amortization (adjusted OIBDA loss) of $75 million

Aug 07, 2015, 16:05 ET from NII Holdings, Inc.

RESTON, Va., Aug. 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- NII Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: NIHD) today announced its consolidated financial results for the second quarter of 2015. The Company reported a net loss of 64,000 subscribers for the quarter as iDEN subscriber losses in Brazil and Argentina exceeded 3G net additions in Brazil.  The Company ended the quarter with 6.3 million total subscribers, a 2 percent increase from a year ago. For the quarter, the Company generated consolidated operating revenues of $421 million, a consolidated adjusted OIBDA loss of $75 million, and a consolidated operating loss of $179 million. Capital expenditures were $58 million for the quarter. The Company's consolidated adjusted OIBDA excludes the impact of non-cash asset impairments, restructuring charges and other unusual items.  The Company ended the quarter with $672 million in consolidated cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments.  The Company's results for the second quarter of 2015 exclude the Company's operations in Mexico that were sold to AT&T on April 30, 2015 and reflect the implementation of fresh start accounting in connection with its emergence from bankruptcy on June 26, 2015.

"We are disappointed in our performance during the second quarter including the sequential decline in our adjusted OIBDA, which fell short of our expectations due to our inability to deliver on our revenue growth goals," said Steve Shindler, NII Holdings' chief executive officer.  "Subscriber growth on our 3G network in Brazil was offset by iDEN subscriber losses in both Brazil and Argentina. Our results reflect the impact of a challenging macroeconomic environment that is affecting the entire wireless industry as well as the deterioration in foreign currency exchange rates that are expected to continue to affect our businesses in Brazil and Argentina for the remainder of 2015. Our results to date and the negative economic outlook put us well behind the goals we set for ourselves in the business plan that was developed last year in connection with our Chapter 11 restructuring process.  We are implementing contingency plans designed to help us reach our long-term goals, but our focus for the remainder of this year will be to build our 3G subscriber base in Brazil and pursue cost saving strategies to help improve our profitability."

NII Holdings' consolidated average monthly service revenue per subscriber (ARPU) was $19 for the second quarter of 2015, down from $25 in the same quarter last year, due to the year over year decline in local currency values. The Company's consolidated average monthly churn rate for the quarter increased to 3.69 percent from 3.30 percent in the second quarter last year due to an increase in iDEN subscriber churn in both Brazil and Argentina. Consolidated cost per gross addition (CPGA) was $176 for the second quarter of 2015, a $34 decrease from the year ago period, primarily due to an increase in new 3G postpaid subscribers in Brazil who use their own handsets rather than purchasing a new one from the Company.

"During the quarter we successfully emerged from bankruptcy as a more streamlined company focused on creating value through driving quality subscriber growth," said Juan Figuereo, NII Holdings' executive vice president and chief financial officer.  "We believe in the long-term opportunity in Brazil, but anticipate that our financial results will continue to be volatile in the near-term as we strive to capture that opportunity in an uncertain economic environment.  We will deal with that volatility using the same disciplined process that we used to manage our liquidity during our restructuring process, prioritizing our investments while delivering an outstanding customer experience using our high quality network in Brazil."

The Company will not provide a financial outlook and will not host financial results conference calls for the remainder of 2015 due to the challenging economic conditions, foreign currency exchange rate volatility, and the recently announced transitions in its management team. The Company currently expects to be in a position to provide additional details about its business outlook in connection with its report of fourth quarter and year-end 2015 results.  Additional details regarding the Company's results are included in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the second quarter that was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission today.  Additional operational and financial details are also available under the Investor Relations link at www.nii.com.

These measures are non-GAAP financial measures and should be considered in addition to, but not as substitutes for, the information prepared in accordance with GAAP.

NON-GAAP RECONCILIATIONS FOR THE THREE AND SIX MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2015 AND 2014 (UNAUDITED) Consolidated OIBDA and Consolidated Adjusted OIBDA

 

Consolidated operating income before depreciation and amortization, or OIBDA, represents operating income before depreciation and amortization expense. Consolidated adjusted operating income before depreciation and amortization, or adjusted OIBDA, represents consolidated operating income before depreciation expense, amortization expense, material asset impairments, severance costs associated with publicly announced restructuring plans and other material non-recurring or unusual charges. Consolidated OIBDA and consolidated adjusted OIBDA are not measurements under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, may not be similar to consolidated OIBDA and consolidated adjusted OIBDA measures of other companies and should be considered in addition to, but not as substitutes for, the information contained in our statements of operations. We believe that consolidated OIBDA and consolidated adjusted OIBDA provide useful information to investors because they are indicators of our operating performance, especially in a capital intensive industry such as ours, since they exclude items that are not directly attributable to ongoing business operations. Consolidated OIBDA and consolidated adjusted OIBDA can be reconciled to our consolidated statements of operations as follows (in millions):

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

Average monthly revenue per subscriber 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 subscriber units 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 (CPGA)

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):

Impact of Foreign Currency Fluctuations

The following table shows the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates on certain financial measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 compared to the same period in 2015 by (i) adjusting the relevant measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 to levels that would have resulted if the average foreign currency exchange rates for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 were the same as the average foreign currency exchange rates that were in effect for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015; and (ii) comparing the actual and adjusted financial measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 to the similar financial measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 to show the percentage change in those measures before and after taking those adjustments into account. The amounts reflected in the following table for operating income before depreciation and amortization on a consolidated basis and segment earnings for Nextel Brazil and Nextel Argentina, before the adjustments for changes in foreign currency exchange rates, are based on the calculations contained elsewhere in these non-GAAP reconciliations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014. The average foreign currency exchange rates for each of the relevant currencies during each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 are included in the notes to the table below. The information reflected in the following table is not a measurement under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information contained in our statements of operations. We believe that these calculations provide useful information concerning our relative performance for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 compared to the same period in 2014 by removing the impact of the significant difference in the average foreign currency exchange rates in effect for those periods.

The amounts included under the columns "2Q 2014 Adjustment" and "YTD 2014 Adjustment" reflect the amount determined by subtracting the "2Q 2014 Normalized" and "YTD 2014 Normalized" amounts calculated as described in the preceding sentence from the "2Q 2014 Actual" and "YTD 2014 Actual" amounts and reflect the impact of the year-over-year change in the average foreign currency exchange rates on each of the financial measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015. The average foreign currency exchange rates for each of the relevant currencies during the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 for purposes of these calculations were as follows:
