NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Zayo (ZAYO) - Get Report were down in late-afternoon trading on Wednesday ahead of the company's 2016 fiscal fourth quarter results, due out after tomorrow's market close.
Analysts are projecting that earnings will decline year-over-year, while revenue will be higher compared to a year ago.
Wall Street is estimating that the Boulder, CO-based company will post earnings of 2 cents per share on revenue of $497.9 million.
In the same quarter last year, Zayo earned 3 cents per share on revenue of $361.9 million.
The company provides communications infrastructure services, including fiber and bandwidth connectivity, colocation and cloud services.
Separately, TheStreet Ratings Team has a "Hold" rating with a score of C- on the stock.
The primary factors that have impacted the rating are mixed. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth and compelling growth in net income.
But the team also finds weaknesses including generally higher debt management risk and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.
