Inteliquent Reports Preliminary Second Quarter 2013 Results And Postpones Earnings Call

CHICAGO, Aug. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inteliquent, Inc. (Nasdaq:IQNT), a leading provider of voice services, today announced preliminary financial results for the second quarter of 2013. Inteliquent also announced that, as a result of an ongoing investigation by the Audit Committee of Inteliquent's Board of Directors, it has postponed its scheduled earnings call, which had been set for Thursday, August 8, 2013.

Preliminary Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2013 and 2013 Financial Estimates

Inteliquent generated revenue of $49.8 million in the second quarter of 2012. Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP financial measure) in the second quarter of 2013 was $16.3 million. See "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for a discussion of the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and reconciliation to net income. Inteliquent also affirmed its financial estimates for 2013 as more fully described below.

Postponed Earnings Call

As previously disclosed in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012, Inteliquent reported a $75.3 million impairment charge, and a net loss of $78.1 million, in each case for the year ended December 31, 2012.

During the second quarter of 2013, the Board of Directors of the Company determined that an internal investigation of whether such impairment charge was overstated should be undertaken by the Audit Committee with the assistance of independent outside professionals. During the same time period, the Board of Directors also determined that the Audit Committee, with the assistance of independent outside professionals, should conduct an internal investigation of the Company's financial forecasting practices during the fourth quarter of 2012 and the first quarter of 2013. As a result of the ongoing internal investigation, Inteliquent has postponed its scheduled second quarter earnings call, which had been set for Thursday, August 8, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern time.

The information contained in this press release is preliminary and may be subject to significant changes and adjustments as a result of the Audit Committee's ongoing internal investigation. Inteliquent is still conducting its internal investigation, including investigating whether a restatement of its financial statements relating to an overstatement of the impairment charge for the year ended December 31, 2012 will be required. All results reflected in this press release should be considered preliminary until Inteliquent's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013 is filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Preliminary Financial and Operating Results 

In the second quarter of 2013, Inteliquent generated voice revenue of $49.8 million, a decrease of 2% compared to $50.8 million of voice revenue in the second quarter of 2012. The decrease related primarily to a reduction in minute volumes for local transit and termination voice services, which was partially offset by an increase in volumes in our origination voice services.  Revenue from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2013 and 2012 included $2.7 million and $6.7 million, respectively, related to the global data business sold on April 30, 2013.
