Increased business VoIP revenue by 13 percent, driven by strong demand for hosted voice and fiber data
Expanded TV subscriber base by 11 percent, recording 21st consecutive quarter of year-over-year growth
Grew wholesale high-bandwidth services revenue by 25 percent

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

  • Revenue totaled $91.0 million, resulting in Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $25.8 million.

  • Business VoIP revenue increased 13.3 percent year-over-year, driven by 15.2 percent growth in business VoIP lines.

  • Business strategic revenue(2) increased 8.6 percent over the last two years and now represents 39 percent of total business revenue.

  • TV revenue grew 5.9 percent year-over-year, driven by 11.4 percent subscriber growth, ending the quarter with over 44,300 Hawaiian Telcom TV subscribers. Overall Next-Generation Network (NGN) penetration is approximately 25 percent, an increase from 22 percent in the same period the prior year.

  • Consumer strategic revenue(2) increased 4.6 percent over the last two years and now represents 53 percent of total consumer revenue.

  • Wholesale revenue from high-bandwidth services grew 24.8 percent year-over-year, driven by trans-Pacific fiber circuit capacity sales.

  • Fiber-enabled approximately 800 business addresses, 1,000 consumer households, and 1,100 CAF II locations in the quarter, bringing total fiber-enabled business addresses to 9,400, total NGN households on O‘ahu to 205,000, and 2,300 CAF II enabled locations on the neighbor islands.

  • Incurred a GAAP net loss of $92.7 million, or $8.00 per diluted share for the quarter, primarily due to a one-time, non-cash increase in deferred tax valuation allowance of $89.4 million. Excluding this allowance, third quarter Adjusted Net Loss(3) was $3.3 million, or $0.29 per diluted share.

  • All federal and state regulatory applications related to the Cincinnati Bell merger have been filed; regulatory review processes are well underway and the merger is expected to close as soon as all regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions are met.

“In the third quarter, we continued to transform our business and strengthen our position as Hawai‘i’s leading provider of fiber services,” said Scott K. Barber, Hawaiian Telcom’s president and CEO. “Penetration of Hawaiian Telcom TV, our IPTV product, has grown consistently every quarter for the last four years. Consumer Internet revenue and subscribers increased sequentially for the first time in eight quarters, driven by strong demand for our exclusive Fiber-to-the-Home Internet speeds. Demand for our fiber-based business services such as VoIP and Fiber-to-the-Business Internet, as well as wholesale Ethernet and trans-Pacific undersea fiber capacity also continued to grow. Our fiber assets, knowledge, and innovation has been, in large part, responsible for the transformation of our business. Together with Cincinnati Bell, we can leverage our shared knowledge and innovation to further capitalize on customers’ growing demand for high-bandwidth and next-generation services to drive sustainable growth. We believe this combination of like-minded, locally-focused companies will increase long-term value for all our stakeholders.”

Third Quarter 2017 Results

Third quarter revenue was $91.0 million, compared to $97.8 million in the third quarter of 2016. The year-over-year change was primarily due to revenue growth in consumer video, business VoIP, and high-bandwidth fiber consumer and business Internet services being more than offset by revenue declines associated with legacy voice and low-bandwidth Internet services, as well as lower levels of equipment sales. Adjusted EBITDA was $25.8 million, resulting in an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 28.3 percent.

Net loss for the third quarter was $92.7 million, or $8.00 per diluted share, primarily impacted by an $89.4 million one-time, non-cash increase in tax valuation allowance relating to our deferred income tax assets. The requirement to establish this allowance was due to the pre-tax losses incurred by the Company in 2017. This valuation allowance does not preclude the Company from using its net operating loss carryforward in the future. Excluding this allowance, third quarter Adjusted Net Loss was $3.3 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, primarily related to $2.0 million in professional fees associated with the Cincinnati Bell merger and $1.1 million in non-cash pension expense related to employee retirements in the quarter.

Business Revenue

Third quarter business revenue totaled $41.9 million, down $2.9 million year-over-year primarily due to lower levels of equipment sales and the decline in legacy voice and low-bandwidth Internet services, as well as lower average revenue per unit on certain data services because of promotional pricing. These decreases were partly offset by continued growth in high-bandwidth fiber Internet services and a 13.3 percent year-over-year increase in business VoIP revenue, driven by strong demand for Hawaiian Telcom’s hosted voice and data bundle.

In the third quarter, the number of business Internet subscribers on packages with 50 Mbps to 1 Gbps fiber speeds grew 38.3 percent year-over-year. To support this growing demand for bandwidth and increasing cloud adoption, the Company continued to deploy fiber GPON technology to further leverage its Next-Generation Network to nearly 800 additional small business addresses in the quarter, providing customers access to 1 Gbps Internet service. This brings Hawaiian Telcom’s total fiber-GPON-enabled business addresses to approximately 9,400 at the end of the third quarter.

Business strategic revenue increased 8.6 percent over the last two years and now represents 39 percent of total reported business revenue, compared to 34 percent in the same period two years ago.

Consumer Revenue

Third quarter consumer revenue totaled $33.7 million, compared to $35.7 million in the third 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 legacy voice and low-bandwidth copper Internet services. Third quarter consumer strategic revenue increased 4.6 percent over the last two years now represents 53 percent of total consumer revenue, up from 46 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 5.9 percent year-over-year to $11.1 million for the quarter and has become a $44 million and growing annualized revenue stream. Video subscribers grew 11.4 percent during the same period, ending the quarter with approximately 44,300 subscribers. 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 approximately 25 percent, an increase from 22 percent in the same period in the prior year.

During the third quarter, the Company fiber-enabled 1,000 additional consumer households on O‘ahu, including success-based bulk multi-dwelling units and greenfield single-family homes, bringing total NGN households to 205,000, or approximately two-thirds of total marketable households on O‘ahu.

Customer demand for Hawaiian Telcom Internet continued to be driven by TV attachment and higher fiber data speeds. As of September 30, 2017, approximately 95 percent of all video subscribers had double- or triple-play bundles with Internet. Customer adoption of higher fiber speed offerings continued to grow. In the third quarter, the number of Internet subscribers on packages with 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps fiber speeds grew 64.4 percent year-over-year. Internet services revenue for the third quarter decreased $0.4 million year-over-year and is consistent quarter-over-quarter.

Wholesale Revenue

Third quarter wholesale revenue totaled $12.6 million, down $0.9 million compared to third quarter 2016. Revenue from high-bandwidth, multi-year contract wholesale services including Ethernet, trans-Pacific fiber circuit capacity, and optical transport services increased 24.8 percent year-over-year and now represents 35 percent of total wholesale revenue, up from 23 percent in the same period two years ago. This revenue growth was offset by the revenue decline from certain wholesale customers disconnecting low-bandwidth, less efficient legacy circuits on month-to-month service.

Operating Expenses

Third quarter operating expenses totaled $92.1 million, down $2.0 million compared to third quarter 2016. Operating expenses, exclusive of non-cash and special items which are excluded from our Adjusted EBITDA calculation, decreased $4.0 million year-over-year to $65.3 million. The decrease was primarily due to lower salaries and wages as a result of reduced headcount, lower labor overtime, 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 $75.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, down from $78.3 million in same period in the prior year. Nearly 90 percent of total capital expenditures in the first nine months of 2017 was directed towards growth and expansion initiatives, which included payments on the trans-Pacific 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.

As of September 30, 2017, the Company had $44.7 million in cash and cash equivalents compared to $15.8 million at the end of 2016. The increase in cash was primarily due to our new term loan financing in May 2017 and the up-front payments received for fiber circuit capacity on our trans-Pacific cable that was completed in August 2017. Net Debt(4) was $267.0 million, resulting in a Net Leverage Ratio(5) as of September 30, 2017 of 2.5x. Levered Free Cash Flow(6) for the first nine months of 2017 was negative $7.0 million.

(1) Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure defined by the Company as net income (loss) plus interest expense (net of interest income and other), income taxes, depreciation and amortization, gain on sale of property, non-cash stock and other performance-based compensation, SystemMetrics earn-out, pension settlement loss, severance costs and other special items. The Company believes this non-GAAP measure is a meaningful performance measure for investors because it is used by our Board and management to evaluate performance, enhance comparability between periods and make operating decisions. Our use of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies in the telecommunications industry. A detailed reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to comparable GAAP financial measures has been included in the table distributed with this release.

Hosted and managed services include physical colocation, virtual colocation, security, cloud services, professional services, network management and network installation related services. Consumer strategic revenue, as defined by the Company, includes video services and consumer Internet services revenues.

(3) Adjusted Net Loss is defined as net loss adjusted for the one-time, non-cash item related to the deferred tax valuation allowance. The Company believes this non-GAAP measure is a meaningful performance measure for investors because the deferred tax valuation allowance does not affect our ongoing business operations.

This non-GAAP measure does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures. The Company defines Levered Free Cash Flow as Adjusted EBITDA less cash interest expense and capital expenditures. A detailed reconciliation of Levered Free Cash Flow has been included in the tables distributed with this release.

(7) Beginning in the first quarter of 2017, the Company no longer reports data center services as a separate segment and a separate revenue line item in the business channel. This is as a result of the Company’s evolving strategy to increase emphasis on bundling of strategic communications services to customers as well as maximize the efficiency benefits of an integrated operation. Data center services revenue has been reclassified to the appropriate revenue line items in the business channel. Prior period information has been revised to reflect the current presentation.
