LITTLE ROCK, Ark., May 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Windstream Corp. (Nasdaq:WIN) today reported first-quarter results highlighted by continued growth in strategic revenues.

Total business and consumer broadband revenues grew 2 percent year-over-year and now represent 71 percent of the company's total revenues.

Windstream's business sales teams continued to successfully leverage the company's national footprint, extensive fiber network and advanced suite of products and services to drive sales and increase profitability during the quarter.

"Our vision at Windstream is to be the premier enterprise communications and service provider while maintaining our stable consumer business, which will result in substantial cash flows and long-term support of our current dividend," said Jeff Gardner, president and CEO. "We are successfully repositioning the company. Over the long term, we believe our strategy and investments will allow us to grow and increase shareholder value."
