Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) of $17.0 million
CHICAGO, Oct. 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inteliquent, Inc. (Nasdaq:IQNT), a leading provider of voice services, today announced its financial results for the third quarter.
"We are very pleased with our strong third quarter results," said Ed Evans, Chief Executive Officer of Inteliquent. "After the sale of our global data business earlier this year, our strategy of focusing on our voice business is showing positive results. We continue to see good momentum in our sales pipeline and a generally constructive pricing environment."
Third Quarter Results
Inteliquent generated voice revenues of $50.1 million in the third quarter of 2013, a decrease of 4.0% compared to $52.2 million of voice revenues in the third quarter of 2012. The decrease related primarily to a reduction in minute volumes for termination and international voice services, which was partially offset by an increase in minute volumes for origination voice services.
Minutes of use decreased 8.2% to 30.4 billion minutes in the third quarter of 2013, compared to 33.1 billion minutes in the third quarter of 2012. Average price per minute for the three months ended September 30, 2013 was $0.00165, an increase of 4.4%, compared to $0.00158 for the same time period last year.
As seen in the following chart of selected financial and operational metrics, sequentially, third quarter 2013 voice revenues and minutes of use both increased from the previous quarter while average price per minute decreased slightly.
