Atlantic Tele-Network, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2011 Results

Stocks in this article: ATNI

Atlantic Tele-Network, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATNI), today reported results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2011.

“This was our first full quarter without the burden of overlapping transition expenses associated with the Alltel asset acquisition, and we are pleased to have posted a significant year-over-year increase in Adjusted EBITDA,” said Michael Prior, Chief Executive Officer. “Additionally, we saw improvement in certain of our subscriber metrics, including increased gross additions and ARPU, and reduced churn. We are encouraged by the positive customer response to the new value plans we launched during the fourth quarter, but there is still room for improvement in this business. Among the priorities for 2012, we need to increase gross customer additions and maintain or improve churn, while at the same time reducing retail operating expenses.

“Fourth quarter results also benefited from an 88% year-over-year increase in our Island Wireless segment revenues, primarily reflecting the increased strength of our Bermuda operations following the merger we completed there in the second quarter of 2011,” Mr. Prior said.

Total revenues for the fourth quarter were $182.9 million, a 6% decline from the $194.7 million reported for the fourth quarter of 2010, reflecting net subscriber attrition that the Company experienced since the Alltel acquisition as the Company transitioned distribution channels, subscriber contracts and credit policies, systems and networks.

Adjusted EBITDA 1 for the 2011 fourth quarter was $40.7 million, an increase of 30% over the $31.3 million reported in last year’s fourth quarter, and reflected improved performance in all four of ATN’s reportable segments.

Total operating income was $10.9 million, an increase of 18% from the $9.3 million reported in last year’s fourth quarter. Fourth quarter 2011 operating income was negatively impacted by a $3.1 million increase in depreciation and amortization expenses over the prior year’s fourth quarter, as well as a $2.4 million intangible asset impairment charge related to the Company’s Island Wireless segment. Fourth quarter 2010 operating income also included a net benefit of $2.1 million in acquisition-related charges due to a final settlement of estimated Alltel acquisition costs.
