Mr. Guy Nissenson, Chairman, President and CEO of NTS commented, “2012 was a rewarding year as we saw continued progress in the build out of our fiber network and achieved steady fiber revenue growth as we successfully marketed our offerings to new customers in new communities. As our high margin FTTP revenues increase, we are achieving higher consolidated revenues and improved margins resulting in significant growth in our EBITDAS. During the year, we added 5 new communities in Texas to our fiber network, including Wichita Falls, the site of our first ‘metro build’ which specifically targets more than 1,000 business customers. We also broke ground on our network build in Louisiana and look forward to adding customers from that region during 2013.
“Our customer base is growing steadily and we added more than 600 fiber customers in just the first two months of the first quarter of 2013. This is well ahead of the 359 fiber customers we added during the entire fourth quarter of 2012 and we expect to achieve stronger sequential FTTP revenue growth in the first quarter of 2013.”
