HONOLULU, Aug. 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hawaiian Telcom Holdco, Inc. (NASDAQ:HCOM) reported financial results for its second quarter ended June 30. The highlights are as follows:

  • Revenue totaled $91.3 million, resulting in Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $26.4 million.
  • Business VoIP revenue increased 13.4 percent year-over-year, driven by 14.2 percent growth in business VoIP lines.
  • Business strategic revenue(2) increased 14.3 percent over the last two years and now represents 40 percent of total business revenue.
  • TV revenue grew 8.1 percent year-over-year, driven by 12.0 percent subscriber growth, ending the quarter with over 43,200 Hawaiian Telcom TV subscribers. Overall Next-Generation Network (NGN) penetration is over 24 percent, an increase from 22 percent in the same period the prior year.
  • Consumer strategic revenue(2) increased 5.8 percent over the last two years and now represents 52 percent of total consumer revenue.
  • Fiber-enabled 1,600 business addresses, 1,000 consumer households, and 300 CAF II locations in the quarter, bringing total fiber-enabled business addresses to 8,600, total NGN households on O‘ahu to 204,000, and 1,200 CAF II enabled locations on the neighbor islands.
  • Incurred a net loss of $3.5 million, or $0.30 per diluted share for the quarter, primarily related to $4.8 million in costs associated with the refinancing of our credit facility in May.
  • Successfully completed end-to-end testing of the SEA-US transpacific fiber system linking Southeast Asia and the United States. Ready for Service is expected in August 2017.

“We are excited about the opportunity to combine with Cincinnati Bell and further our strategy of investing for the future,” said Scott K. Barber, Hawaiian Telcom’s president and CEO. “Over the past six years, we have significantly expanded the reach and density of our next-generation fiber network, launched innovative IP-based products and services, and as a result, strengthened our competitive position and transformed our growth profile. This merger will bring together two companies with nearly identical transformation and operating strategies as well as philosophies, cultures and customer focus. We look forward to leveraging the combined scale and expanded product offerings, sharing best practices and resources, continuing to invest in our next-generation fiber network statewide, and creating future growth opportunities. We believe this is a great combination for our shareholders, customers, employees, and our communities.

“We are also proud of this significant achievement for the landmark SEA-US project, the first transpacific submarine fiber cable system directly connecting Indonesia, the Philippines, Guam, Hawai‘i and the continental U.S. Our $25 million investment in this system has proved to be an outstanding investment with nearly $30 million of capacity sales to date and additional capacity remaining to be monetized. Our joint ownership and operation of this cable also enables us to cost-effectively meet our own future IP bandwidth needs. With this investment, we have furthered our strategy to invest in our network, providing our company, our customers and our community with significant expansion potential beyond Hawai‘i, and the unique opportunity to continue to transform our business,” concluded Barber.

Second Quarter 2017 Results

Second quarter revenue was $91.3 million, compared to $99.5 million in the second quarter of 2016. The year-over-year decrease was due to one-time revenues from a large government agency recorded in the second quarter of 2016, lower enterprise equipment sales, and revenue declines associated with legacy voice and low-bandwidth Internet services offsetting revenue increases from consumer video, business VoIP, and high-bandwidth business and consumer Internet services. Adjusted EBITDA was $26.4 million, resulting in an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 28.9 percent.

Net loss for the second quarter was $3.5 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, primarily related to $4.8 million in costs associated with the refinancing of our credit facility in the second quarter.

Business Revenue

Second quarter business revenue totaled $41.7 million, down $5.0 million from the same period a year ago, primarily due to $3.5 million in non-recurring revenues associated with a large government agency recorded in the second quarter of 2016 and lower year-over-year equipment revenue mostly related to one-time equipment sales for a large hospitality customer in the prior year period. Additionally, the year-over-year decline in legacy voice and low-bandwidth Internet services contributed to the decline in business revenue. These decreases were partly offset by a 13.4 percent year-over-year increase in business VoIP revenue driven by higher demand for Hawaiian Telcom’s hosted voice and data bundle.

To support the growing demand for data bandwidth and cloud adoption, the Company deployed fiber GPON technology to further leverage its Next-Generation Network to nearly 1,600 additional small business addresses in the quarter, providing customers access to 1 Gigabit Internet service. This brings Hawaiian Telcom’s total fiber-GPON-enabled business addresses to approximately 8,600 at the end of the second quarter.

Second quarter business strategic revenue, excluding one-time revenues related to the large government agency mentioned above, was consistent with the prior year period. Business strategic revenue now represents 40 percent of total reported business revenue, compared to 34 percent in the same period two years ago.

Consumer Revenue

Second quarter consumer revenue totaled $33.8 million, compared to $36.0 million in the second quarter of 2016. Revenue growth in the quarter from Hawaiian Telcom TV and high-bandwidth fiber Internet services was more than offset by the year-over-year revenue decline in consumer legacy voice and low-bandwidth copper Internet services. Second quarter consumer strategic revenue increased nearly 1 percent year-over-year and now represents 52 percent of total consumer revenue, up from 45 percent in the same period two years ago.

Hawaiian Telcom TV continued to be the driver of revenue growth in the consumer channel. Video services revenue grew 8.1 percent year-over-year to $10.8 million for the quarter and has become a $44 million and growing annualized revenue stream. Video subscribers grew 12.0 percent during the same period and the Company ended the second quarter with approximately 43,200 subscribers in service. When combined with approximately 6,000 additional Internet subscribers on our NGN footprint that do not have TV service, the penetration rate in our NGN footprint is over 24 percent, an increase from 22 percent in the same period in the prior year. During the second quarter, the Company fiber-enabled 1,000 additional consumer households on Oʻahu, including success-based bulk MDU units and greenfield single-family homes, bringing total NGN households to 204,000, or approximately two-thirds of total marketable households on Oʻahu.

Customer demand for Hawaiian Telcom Internet continued to be driven by TV attachment and higher data speeds. As of June 30, 2017, approximately 95 percent of all video subscribers had double- or triple-play bundles with Internet. On Oʻahu, where the focus of the Company’s NGN fiber investment has been and where Hawaiian Telcom TV service is offered, total number of Internet subscribers continues to increase year-over-year. In the second quarter, the number of Oʻahu Internet subscribers attached to TV grew 13.4 percent year-over-year and now represents 58 percent of total Oʻahu Internet subscribers, up from 43 percent in the same period two years ago. Customer adoption of higher speed offerings also continued to grow. The number of Internet subscribers on packages with 21 Mbps to 1 Gbps speeds in the second quarter grew 16.5 percent year-over-year. Internet services revenue for the second quarter decreased $0.7 million from the same period a year ago as a result of the combined effect of promotional pricing and a decline in low-bandwidth copper Internet subscribers.

Wholesale Revenue

Second quarter wholesale revenue totaled $12.6 million, a decline of $0.6 million compared to second quarter 2016. The revenue growth from wholesale high-bandwidth Ethernet services on multi-year contracts was more than offset by the revenue decline from certain wholesale customers disconnecting low-bandwidth, less efficient legacy circuits on month-to-month service, as well as reductions in rates for certain wireless carriers in exchange for extended terms.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses, exclusive of non-cash and special items which are excluded from our Adjusted EBITDA calculation, decreased $3.9 million year-over-year to $64.9 million in the second quarter. The decrease was primarily due to lower wage costs, reduced costs of plant maintenance, and decreased cost of goods as a result of lower levels of equipment sales. These decreases were partially offset by higher video content costs from increasing numbers of TV subscribers.

Capital Expenditures and Liquidity

Capital expenditures totaled $52.6 million for the first six months ended June 30, 2017, consistent with the same period in the prior year. Approximately 90 percent of total capital expenditures in the first half of 2017 was directed towards growth and expansion initiatives, which included payments on the transpacific undersea cable system, Connect America Fund build out, spending on fiber-to-the-business initiative, as well as success-based spending to support the growth of the Company’s next-generation services. Overall, the level of capital expenditures for 2017 is expected to be lower than in 2016 and in the high-$80 million range.

As of June 30, 2017, the Company had $25.9 million in cash and cash equivalents compared to $15.8 million at the end of 2016. The increase in cash is primarily related to our new term loan financing in the second quarter. Net Debt(3) was $288.0 million, resulting in a Net Leverage Ratio(4) as of June 30, 2017 of 2.6x. Levered Free Cash Flow(5) for the first half of 2017 was negative $7.3 million.
