Enventis Corporation (NASDAQ: ENVE) today reported total revenue of $49.7 million for the second quarter ending June 30, 2014, an increase of 5 percent year over year. Revenue was driven by strong fiber and data and equipment segment results, which were up 5 percent and 15 percent respectively. EBITDA, per the company’s credit agreement, totaled $12.6 million in the second quarter, up 3 percent year over year. Net income totaled $1.9 million for the second quarter, a decrease of 18 percent year over year, and was impacted by $911,000 of pre-tax costs related to the proposed merger agreement with Consolidated Communications Holdings, Inc. Excluding these unique costs, net income would have been $542,000 higher and would have been up $132,000 or 6 percent year over year.
“We are very pleased with the strong second quarter results we produced and the positive momentum we have moving into the second half of the year,” said John Finke, president and chief executive officer at Enventis. We’re excited about the potential of our recently launched Cloud Services and the value and benefit this suite of services offer our business customers. Overall, we remain focused on our strategic initiatives and driving revenue growth and profitability across all lines of business.”
Fiber and Data Segment (before inter-segment eliminations)
- Fiber and Data revenue totaled $17.8 million, up 5 percent year over year. This growth is driven by a 6 percent boost in retail revenue and a 4 percent increase in wholesale or carrier services revenue.
- Costs and expenses for this segment totaled $15.5 million, up 5 percent from the prior year.
- Operating income totaled $2.4 million, up 6 percent year over year.
- Net income totaled $1.4 million, an increase of 6 percent year over year.
Equipment Segment (before inter-segment eliminations)
- Second quarter Equipment Segment revenue totaled $17.4 million, a 15 percent increase year over year.
- Equipment sales revenue was $14.1 million, an increase of 9 percent compared to a year ago. Equipment revenue tends to fluctuate quarter to quarter based on sales and installation schedules.
- Support Services revenue in the Equipment Segment was $3.4 million, a 52 percent increase from the second quarter 2013.
- Operating income totaled $1.7 million, an 84 percent increase year over year.
- Net income totaled $1 million, up 84 percent over the second quarter 2013.
Telecom Segment (before inter-segment eliminations)
- Second quarter Telecom Segment revenue totaled $14.4 million, down 2 percent from a year ago. Telecom results were affected by legacy service declines primarily in network access and local service revenue. Broadband service revenue grew 4 percent, offsetting part of the Telecom revenue decline. Competitive price compression is impacting the growth rates of broadband services.
- Digital TV subscribers were up 7 percent and DSL subscribers increased 3 percent and year over year.
- Costs and expenses totaled $12.5 million, down 1 percent year over year.
- Operating and Net income were both down 5 percent compared to a year ago.
Total Capex, Depreciation and Amortization
Total capital expenditures in the second quarter were $6.8 million, compared with $6.5 million in the second quarter 2013. Depreciation and amortization expense increased $258,000 or 4 percent in the second quarter. The increase is primarily attributed to increased capital expenditures associated with fiber network expansion and success-based capital expenditures supporting Fiber and Data revenue growth.
Long-term debt and current maturities, including capitalized leases, totaled $134.4 million as of June 30, 2014. The second quarter 2014 debt balance represents a decrease of $800,000 from the beginning of the year, a reduction of $1.6 million year over year, and a reduction of $7.5 million since the company’s acquisition of Fargo, No. Dakota-based, IdeaOne Telecom in March 2012. Net debt, which measures financial balance sheet strength and subtracts cash on hand from the debt balance, was $126.9 million as of June 30, 2014.
