(“WOW!” or the “Company”) (NYSE: WOW), a leading, fully integrated provider of residential and commercial broadband, video and telephony services to customers in the United States, today announced financial and operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Second Quarter 2020 Highlights (1)

  • Total Subscribers of 844,500, representing 4.3% growth in subscribers compared to the prior-year period
  • Total HSD RGUs of 805,600, representing 5.5% growth in HSD RGUs compared to the prior-year period
  • Total Revenue of $282.0 million; Net Income of $2.2 million; Diluted Earnings Per Share of $0.03
  • HSD Revenue totaled $137.3 million, an increase of $6.9 million or 5.3% compared to the prior-year period
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $101.3 million
  • Free Cash Flow in the second quarter totaled $17.7 million
  • Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share was $0.12
  • Business Services Subscription Revenue grew 3.5% compared to the second quarter of 2019
  • John Rego joined as Chief Financial Officer and Shannon Campain joined as Chief Commercial Officer
  • Gunjan Bhow, Global Chief Digital Officer of Walgreens Boots Alliance, was elected to the Board of Directors
  • WOW! named “MSO of the Year” by Cablefax

"I’m proud of how the WOW! team has navigated the challenges posed by the global health pandemic and executed on our initiatives to deliver critical services to the communities that we serve. During these unprecedented times, demand for our broadband services continued to drive growth, leading to the best second quarter HSD RGU growth in five years," said Teresa Elder, chief executive officer of WOW! “We added more HSD RGUs in the first half of 2020 than we did in all of 2019. We saw 77% of our new customers connecting to our HSD Only offering, up from 57% a year ago. Furthermore 40% of these new customers subscribed to higher speed tiers of 500MB or 1 Gig. Our compelling add-on service, Whole-Home WiFi, showed higher take rates in the second quarter of 2020. As more customers choose WOW!’s broadband service, they reinforce our strategic shift, which we expect to benefit margins in future quarters as legacy video subscriptions decrease.”

"We reported Adjusted EBITDA of $101.3 million in the second quarter", said John Rego, chief financial officer of WOW! "These results were negatively affected by an estimated $7.6 million due to COVID-19 related issues, including lower advertising revenue and the FCC Keep America Connected pledge, which resulted in higher bad debt reserves and fewer late fees than expected."

Revenue

For the quarter ended June 30, 2020, Total Revenue decreased 2.7% to $282.0 million compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2019, which was driven primarily by lower advertising revenue and a shift in service offering mix as the Company continues to experience an expected reduction in Video and Telephony RGUs, partially offset by growth in residential HSD RGUs and ARPU, as well as Business Services Subscription Revenue growth.

Total Subscription Revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, was $263.9 million, down $2.5 million, or 0.9%, compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2019. Residential Subscription Revenue was $228.4 million, down $3.7 million, or 1.6%, compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2019. Business Services Subscription Revenue, totaled $35.5 million, up $1.2 million, or 3.5%, compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Other Business Services Revenue totaled $6.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, down $0.7 million compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Other Revenue totaled $11.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, down $4.5 million compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2019, primarily due to a decrease in advertising, and late fee revenue attributable to our participation in the “FCC” pledge to stop charging late fees to customers affected by the global health crisis.

Costs and Expenses

Operating Expenses (excluding Depreciation and Amortization) totaled $146.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, up $2.3 million, or 2%, compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2019 primarily due to additional bad debt reserves. Selling, General, and Administrative expenses totaled $43.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 down $4.6 million, or 10% compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2019 primarily due to lower employee costs.

Net Income and Earnings Per Share

Net Income for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, was $2.2 million, compared to Net Income of $9.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, included in this release are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements discuss our current expectations and projections relating to our financial condition, results of operations, plans, objectives, future performance and business. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and we caution you not to place undue reliance on such statements. Forward-looking statements are generally identifiable by the use of the words “may,” “will,” “should,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “believe,” “intend,” “project,” “continue,” or the negative of these words, or other similar words or terms. The forward-looking statements included in this release are made as of the date hereof. We assume no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, even if new information becomes available in the future or if experience or future changes make it clear that any projected results expressed or implied in such statements will not be realized. If we do update one or more forward-looking statements, no inference should be made that we will make additional updates with respect to those or other forward-looking statements. Actual results may differ materially from those expected because of various risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control, including the wide range of competition we face in our business; competitors that are larger and possess more resources; the economic uncertainties created by the COVID-19 pandemic and its potential effect on customer demand or ability to pay as well as potential effects on our ability to procure necessary supplies to support our network; dependence upon a business services strategy; conditions in the economy, including potentially uncertain economic conditions; our ability to secure new businesses as customers; demand for our bundled broadband communications services may be lower than we expect; our ability to respond to rapid technological change; increases in programming and retransmission costs; a decline in advertising revenues; the effects of regulatory changes in our business; our substantial level of indebtedness; certain covenants in our debt documents; programming exclusivity in favor of our competitors; inability to obtain necessary hardware, software and operational support; strain on business and resources from future acquisitions, or the inability to identify suitable acquisitions; the occurrence of natural disasters, including hurricanes, in one or more of our geographic markets and other factors that are described from time to time in our filings with the SEC. All forward‑looking statements are expressly qualified in their entirety by these cautionary statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Operating Metrics

We have included certain non-GAAP financial measures in this release, including Adjusted EBITDA, Transaction Adjusted Capital Expenditures, Transaction Adjusted Capital Expenditures excluding Expansion Capital Expenditures, Adjusted Diluted EPS, and Free Cash Flow. The presentation of these financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”).

We believe that these non-GAAP measures enhance an investor’s understanding of our financial performance. We believe that these non-GAAP measures are useful financial metrics to assess our operating performance from period to period by excluding certain items that we believe are not representative of our core business. We believe that these non-GAAP measures provide investors with useful information for assessing the comparability between periods of our ability to generate cash from operations sufficient to pay taxes, to service debt and to undertake Capital Expenditures. We use these non-GAAP measures for business planning purposes and in measuring our performance relative to that of our competitors. We believe these non-GAAP measures are measures commonly used by investors to evaluate our performance and that of our competitors.

Transaction Adjusted Capital Expenditures and Transaction Adjusted Capital Expenditures excluding Expansion Capital Expenditures give effect to the reimbursement of Chicago fiber asset build, and exclude the effects associated with Hurricane Michael and is included herein because they are key metrics used by management and our Board of Directors to assess our financial performance. The presentation of these metrics are not made in accordance with GAAP and our use of this term herein varies from the use of similar terms by other companies in our industry due to different methods of calculation and therefore are not necessarily comparable. This non-GAAP measure should not be considered as an alternative to capital expenditures or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP as measures of operating performance.

Adjusted EBITDA is included herein because it is a key metric used by management and our Board of Directors to assess our financial performance. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is an appropriate measure of operating performance because it eliminates the impact of expenses that do not relate to business performance, and that the presentation of this measure enhances an investor's understanding of our financial performance.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined by WOW! as net income (loss) before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (including impairments), impairment losses on intangibles and goodwill, management fees to related party, the write-up or write-off of any asset, loss on early extinguishment of debt, integration and restructuring expenses and all non‑cash charges and expenses (including stock compensation expense) and certain other income and expenses. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss), operating income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP as measures of operating performance, operating cash flows or liquidity.

Adjusted EBITDA has important limitations as an analytical tool. For example, Adjusted EBITDA:

  • excludes certain tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash available to us;
  • does not reflect any cash capital expenditure requirements for the assets being depreciated and amortized that may have to be replaced in the future;
  • does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; and
  • does not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt.

Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share (EPS) is included herein because it is a key metric used by management and our Board of Directors to assess our financial performance. Adjusted Diluted EPS is a non-GAAP financial measure that eliminates the effect of loss on early extinguishment of debt, gain on sale of assets, net, impairment losses on intangibles and goodwill, non-recurring professional fees, M&A integration and restructuring expense, non-cash stock compensation, and other (income) and expenses. We then add or subtract an estimated incremental income tax effect applicable to those items. We believe that this measurement is useful to investors as an additional way to analyze the underlying trends in our business consistently across the periods presented.

The presentation of Adjusted Diluted EPS is not made in accordance with GAAP and our use of the term Adjusted Diluted EPS herein varies from the use of similar terms by other companies in our industry due to different methods of calculation and is not necessarily comparable. Adjusted Diluted EPS should not be considered as an alternative to Diluted EPS or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP as measures of operating performance.

Free Cash Flow is included herein because it is a key metric used by management and our Board of Directors to assess our financial performance. We define Free Cash Flow as Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities less Capital Expenditures. We believe that Free Cash Flow is an appropriate measure of operating performance because it is meaningful to investors because it presents the cash generated or used by the business in a given period, and that the presentation of this measure enhances an investor’s understanding of our financial performance.

The presentation of Free Cash Flow is not made in accordance with GAAP and our use of the term Free Cash Flow herein varies from the use of similar terms by other companies in our industry due to different methods of calculation and is not necessarily comparable. Free Cash Flow should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP as measures of operating performance.

Refer to “Unaudited Reconciliations of GAAP Measures to Non-GAAP Measures” and the accompanying tables below for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Net Income, Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share to Diluted Earnings Per Share, and Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities to Free Cash Flow which are most directly comparable to their corresponding GAAP financial measure.

In addition, we use the following subscriber information in this release:

  • Homes Passed – We report homes passed as the number of serviceable addresses, such as single residence homes, apartments and condominium units, and businesses passed by our broadband network and listed in our database.
  • Subscribers – Because we deliver multiple services to our customers, we report Total Subscribers as the number of Subscribers who receive at least one of our HSD, Video or Telephony services, without regard to which or how many services they subscribe. We define each of the individual HSD Subscribers, Video Subscribers and Telephony Subscribers as a Revenue Generating Unit (“RGU”).

While we take appropriate steps to ensure subscriber information is presented on a consistent and accurate basis at any given balance sheet date, we periodically review our policies in light of the variability we may encounter across our different markets due to the nature and pricing of products and services and billing systems. Accordingly, we may from time to time make appropriate adjustments to our subscriber information based on such reviews.

Unaudited Transaction Adjusted Condensed Consolidated Financial and Subscriber Information

The SEC requires that pro forma financial information be presented in a registrant’s periodic filings when events occur for which disclosure would be material to investors, including significant business combinations or the disposition of a significant portion of the business. The significance of an acquired or disposed business is determined based on the “significant subsidiary” tests specified in Regulation S-X, Article 11, Rule 1-02(w). Although the Company has made certain acquisitions and divestitures, such transactions do not meet the “significant subsidiary” tests and, accordingly, the Company’s historical financial information as filed with the SEC does not contain pro forma financial information relating to those transactions.

Nevertheless, we make certain adjustments in this release to the historical financial and subscriber information of the Company as filed with the SEC (“Transaction Adjusted”) because we believe such information would be meaningful to investors by showing how such transactions might have affected the Company’s historical financial statements. The unaudited Transaction Adjusted financial and subscriber information in this release has been prepared giving effect to the divestiture of a portion of our Chicago Fiber Network in December 2017, and the impact of Hurricane Michael in October 2018, as if such transactions had been completed at the beginning of the respective periods presented. The unaudited Transaction Adjusted financial and subscriber information is for informational purposes only and does not purport to represent what our results of operations, financial or subscriber information would have been if such transactions had occurred at any date, nor does such information purport to project the results of operations for any future period.

The unaudited Transaction Adjusted condensed consolidated financial and subscriber information in this release was prepared based on our books and records for the respective periods presented for the portion of the Chicago Fiber Network that was divested, and the impact of Hurricane Michael in October 2018. Such historical unaudited financial and subscriber information has been adjusted to give a Transaction Adjusted effect to events that are directly attributable to such transactions, factually supportable and expected to have a continuing impact on the results. The unaudited Transaction Adjusted financial information herein does not reflect non-recurring charges that have been incurred in connection with the transaction including legal fees, broker fees and accounting fees.
