“2015 was a successful year for Hawaiian Telcom as we diligently executed our strategic plan and built momentum in our key growth areas. Strategic investments in our fiber broadband network and next-generation services have enabled our ongoing transformation from a traditional phone company to Hawaiʻi’s technology leader,” said Scott K. Barber, Hawaiian Telcom’s president and CEO.

“Hawaiian Telcom TV continues to be the leading driver of growth in our consumer channel, pulling through Internet and driving a solid 2.5 percent growth in overall consumer revenues in 2015. Hawaiʻi’s superior entertainment experience can now reach 190,000 households on Oʻahu, majority of which are fiber-to-the-home and can receive the market-leading 1 Gbps Internet speed.

“Our business channel also achieved year-over-year growth in 2015, led by a 10 percent increase in data services revenue, which includes growth in Dedicated Internet Access, Ethernet and other IP-based services, Internet, and hosted voice. In 2015, we fiber GPON-enabled 2,900 targeted business addresses, providing them access to our ultrafast 1 Gbps fiber Internet service. GPON sales so far have exceeded our expectation and we believe this to be a significant growth opportunity for us in the coming years.

“In the wholesale channel, we now have 455 fiber-to-the-tower (FTTT) cell sites completed and another 45 sites under contract to build. Future-proofed with fiber, bandwidth to these cell sites are easily increased to provide wireless carriers more capacity, which can drive meaningful increase in revenue over time.

“In 2016, we will continue to invest in our next-generation fiber network, expanding the availability of Hawaiian Telcom TV to more households on Oʻahu, utilizing Connect America Fund II to extend and enhance broadband service to unserved homes on the neighbor islands, building fiber to more cell sites and targeting more business locations with fiber GPON services, along with upgrading our copper network and systems to enhance service offerings and improve customer service. We will continue to focus on driving deeper penetration and increasing our shares of video, broadband, data center and cloud-based services, as well as monetizing excess capacity on the SEA-US undersea cable system.

We have laid a solid foundation for growth and are confident in our team’s ability to execute our strategic plan with the ultimate goal of increasing shareholder value,” concluded Barber.

Fourth Quarter 2015 Results

Fourth quarter revenue was $99.2 million, compared to $99.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2014. Revenue growth in the quarter was mainly driven by growth in consumer video and business data services. This growth was offset by the impact of a 10.3 percent decline in consumer voice access lines and 4.3 percent decline in business voice access lines, as well as lower equipment sales from SystemMetrics. Adjusted EBITDA was $29.3 million, a decrease of $1.4 million year-over-year, primarily due to approximately $1.4 million increase in overtime and contractor costs for the repair work related to the record-breaking rain experienced in the second half of last year.

For the fourth quarter, the Company generated net loss of $0.4 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared to net income of $2.0 million, or $0.19 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2014. The decrease was primarily due to a $1.7 million non-cash pension expense related to employee retirements in the quarter, and a $1.4 million anticipated year-over-year increase in depreciation and amortization as a result of continued investments made to the Company’s broadband fiber network.

Consumer Revenue

Fourth quarter consumer revenue totaled $36.3 million, up 0.6 percent year-over-year driven by solid revenue growth from Hawaiian Telcom TV and Internet services. Consumer strategic revenue increased 14.5 percent year-over-year and now represents 48 percent of total consumer revenue, up from 42 percent in the same period a year ago, and 33 percent in the same period two years ago.

Video services revenue was $9.2 million for the quarter, up 30.3 percent from $7.1 million in the same period a year ago, driven by the addition of approximately 7,800 subscribers in 2015, ending the year with approximately 35,900 subscribers in service. Hawaiian Telcom TV average revenue per user grew 0.5 percent year-over-year. During the quarter, 7,000 additional households were fiber-enabled, increasing the total number of households enabled to 190,000 with 60 percent of those households capable of utilizing fiber-to-the-premise technology. Hawaiian Telcom TV penetration of households enabled increased to approximately 18.9 percent at the end of 2015, up from 17.6 percent at the end of 2014.

Internet services revenue also improved from the same period a year ago, led by the increase in subscribers and customers’ adoption of higher speed offerings. The Company ended 2015 with approximately 93,000 Internet subscribers. The number of customers on 21 Mbps to 1 Gbps speeds increased by more than 30 percent over the last year and more than doubled over the last two years. As of December 31, 2015, approximately 94 percent of all video subscribers had double- or triple-play bundles with Internet. Revenue increases from video and Internet continued to more than offset the year-over-year decline in consumer legacy voice services.

Business Revenue

Fourth quarter business revenue totaled $44.4 million, up 0.7 percent from fourth quarter 2014, driven by strong growth in data services, and equipment and managed services. Data services revenue, which includes Dedicated Internet Access, Ethernet and other business data services, Internet and BVoIP, increased 16.6 percent year-over-year. Business data and BVoIP lines also achieved solid performance in 2015, growing 2.5 percent and 29.9 percent, respectively, ending the year with approximately 20,100 lines and 16,700 lines, respectively.

Increasing customer demand for higher bandwidth services and integrated communications solutions drove fourth quarter business strategic revenue growth to 8.7 percent year-over-year and now represents 36 percent of total business revenue, compared to 33 percent in the same period a year ago, and 29 percent in the same period two years ago. Revenue increases from business strategic services and equipment and managed services more than offset the year-over-year decline in business legacy voice services.

Wholesale Revenue

Fourth quarter wholesale revenue was $14.1 million, compared to $14.7 million in fourth quarter 2014. The decline was due to one-time charges in the fourth quarter of 2014, as well as the effect of selected wireless carriers during the year disconnecting lower bandwidth legacy circuits on month-to-month rates and moving to more efficient fiber-based, higher bandwidth Ethernet circuits on multi-year contracts.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses, exclusive of depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock compensation, SystemMetrics earn-out and other non-recurring charges, increased 1.4 percent to $69.9 million in the fourth quarter. The increase was primarily due to higher direct cost of services related to video as well as higher overtime and contractor costs for the repair work related to the record-breaking rain experienced in the second half of last year. These increases were partially offset by lower electricity rates and usage.

Adjusted EBITDA

Excluding the $1.4 million increase in overtime and contractor costs for the rain-related repair work, Adjusted EBITDA for fourth quarter 2015 would have been consistent with the same period a year ago.

Full Year 2015 Results

Revenue was $393.4 million, up 0.7 percent compared to $390.7 million for the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA was $119.5 million, a 1.5 percent increase compared to $117.8 million in 2014.

Net income for the full year 2015 was $1.1 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared with net income for the full year 2014 of $8.1 million, or $0.72 per diluted share. The decrease was primarily due to an $8.1 million non-cash pension expense related to a large number of employee retirements during the year, and a $9.9 million anticipated year-over-year increase in depreciation and amortization as a result of significant investments made to the Company’s broadband fiber network.

For the full year 2015, capital expenditures totaled $99.0 million with 87 percent directed towards growth and expansion initiatives, compared to 2014 total capital expenditures of $96.7 million. The increase in total capital expenditures is primarily due to SEA-US payments and success-based spending to support the growth of the Company’s next-generation services, including the large government agency contract serving 250 locations that the Company was awarded in 2015.

At the end of 2015, the Company had $30.3 million in cash and cash equivalents compared to $39.9 million at the end of 2014. The use of cash is primarily related to higher levels of expansion-related and success-based capital expenditures, as well as temporary uses of working capital. Net Debt(3) was $255.7 million, resulting in a Net Leverage Ratio(4) as of December 31, 2015 of 2.1x.
