Consolidated Third Quarter 2021 Results

  • Revenue in the third quarter of 2021 grew 12.8% to $62.2 million, compared with the third quarter of 2020, due to growth of 14.2% in the Broadband segment.
  • Adjusted OIBDA in the third quarter of 2021 grew 31.7% to $19.3 million, compared with the third quarter of 2020, due to growth in Broadband of 15.4%. Corporate expenses declined approximately 24% from the same period a year ago due to lower compensation and bank fees.
  • Operating income in the third quarter of 2021 was $1.2 million compared with $0.5 million in the third quarter of 2020.
  • Earnings from continuing operations per diluted share was $0.13 in the third quarter of 2021 representing an increase of $0.10 per share or 333% from the third quarter of 2020.

Broadband

  • Total broadband data Revenue Generating Units ("RGUs") as of September 30, 2021, were 115,579, representing 17.0% year over year growth. Penetration for incumbent cable, Glo Fiber and Beam were 50%, 15% and 5%, respectively, compared to 46%, 13% and 0%, respectively, as of September 30, 2020. Total Glo Fiber and Beam passings grew year over year by approximately 38,500 and 24,300, respectively.
  • Broadband revenue in the third quarter of 2021 grew $7.2 million or 14.2% to $57.9 million compared with $50.7 million in the third quarter of 2020, primarily driven by a $5.3 million or 13.4% increase in Residential and Small and Medium Business ("SMB") revenue on a 17.0% increase in broadband data RGUs. Commercial fiber revenue grew $1.8 million or 24.0% due to growth in circuits, $0.7 million non-recurring amortized revenue reduction in 2020 and $0.5 million in non-recurring dark fiber sales-type leases in 2021.
  • Broadband operating expenses in the third quarter of 2021 were $48.2 million compared to $41.2 million in the third quarter of 2020, primarily driven by costs incurred to support the continued expansion of Glo Fiber and Beam, including a $2.1 million increase in depreciation, a $1.6 million increase in maintenance and installation expenses, a $0.7 million increase in non-recurring expenses relating to the wireless sale and related reduction in workforce, a $0.6 million increase in Glo Fiber and Beam advertising expenses, a $0.6 million increase in software and professional fees from enhancements to our back-office systems, $0.5 million of higher video programming costs, and $0.5 million in higher line costs from an increase in off-network circuits.
  • Broadband Adjusted OIBDA in the third quarter of 2021 grew 15.4% to $22.6 million, compared with $19.6 million for the third quarter of 2020.
  • Broadband Operating income in the third quarter of 2021 was $9.7 million, compared to $9.5 million in the third quarter of 2020.

Tower

  • Tower revenue in the third quarter of 2021 declined 1.2% to $4.4 million compared with the third quarter of 2020. Tenants increased 13.0% to 470 offset by a 14.1% reduction the average revenue per tenant. T-Mobile exercised an option in the third quarter to convert 80 assumed tower leases to a month-to-month term resulting in a change in revenue recognition accounting driving the decline in average revenue per tenant.
  • Tower Adjusted OIBDA in the third quarter of 2021 decreased 8.7% to $2.6 million, compared with $2.9 million for the third quarter of 2020, due primarily to the revenue decline and an increase in ground lease expenses.  
  • Tower operating income in the third quarter of 2021 was $2.2 million, compared to $2.4 million in the third quarter of 2020.

Other Information

  • On July 1, 2021, Shentel completed the sale of its Wireless assets and operations to T-Mobile for cash consideration of approximately $1.94 billion.
  • The Company currently expects to pay approximately $428 million in December 2021 in income taxes for the sale of the Wireless assets and operations resulting in after-tax proceeds of approximately $1.5 billion. The Company used approximately $684 million of the proceeds to fully repay all outstanding principal amounts under, and terminate, the then-existing credit agreement (the "Prior Credit Agreement") and to fully repay and terminate the interest rate swaps. Approximately $937 million of the proceeds were used to pay a special dividend of $18.75 per share on the issued and outstanding shares of the Company's common stock (the "Special Dividend") in August 2021.
  • On July 1, 2021, we entered into a new Credit Agreement (the “New Credit Agreement”) with various financial institutions party thereto. The New Credit Agreement provides for three credit facilities, in an aggregate amount equal to $400 million: (i) a $100 million five-year revolving credit facility, (ii) a $150 million five-year delayed draw amortizing term loan and (iii) a $150 million seven-year delayed draw amortizing term loan. We have not made any borrowing under the New Credit Agreement as of the date of this press release. We do not currently expect to draw upon any portion of the New Credit Agreement until the first quarter of 2022.
  • The Company currently has incurred approximately $4.7 million of severance expense during 2021, with approximately $2.1 million attributable to continuing operations and $2.6 million related to discontinued operations, all of which has been recognized. The Company has realized $3.3 million in annualized run-rate expense savings from the previously announced reduction in workforce as of September 30, 2021 and expects to realize approximately $4 million by early 2022.
  • As of September 30, 2021 our cash and cash equivalents totaled $532.5 million and the availability under our revolving line of credit and delay draw term loans were $400.0 million, for total available liquidity of $932.5 million.
  • Capital expenditures were $118.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared with $82.7 million in the comparable 2020 period. The $36.1 million increase in capital expenditures was primarily due to higher spending in the Broadband segment driven by the expansion of Glo Fiber and Beam.
  • As previously announced, the Company’s Board of Directors declared an annual cash dividend of $0.07 per share to shareholders of record as of the close of business November 8, 2021, payable on December 1, 2021.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Adjusted OIBDA

Adjusted OIBDA represents Operating income before depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation and certain other items of revenue, expense, gain or loss not reflective of our operating performance, which may or may not be recurring in nature.

Adjusted OIBDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that we use to evaluate our operating performance in comparison to our competitors. Management believes that analysts and investors use Adjusted OIBDA as a supplemental measure of operating performance to facilitate comparisons with other telecommunications companies. This measure isolates and evaluates operating performance by excluding the cost of financing (e.g., interest expense), as well as the non-cash depreciation and amortization of past capital investments, non-cash share-based compensation expense, and certain other items of revenue, expense, gain or loss not reflective of our operating performance.

Adjusted OIBDA has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating income, net income or any other measure of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP.

The following tables reconcile Adjusted OIBDA to operating income, which we consider to be the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure:

______________________________________________________
(1)   Homes and businesses are considered passed (“homes passed”) if we can connect them to our network without further extending the distribution system. Homes passed is an estimate based upon the best available information. Homes passed will vary among video, broadband data and voice services.
(2)   The Company acquired Canaan Cable on December 31, 2020 adding 1,100 homes passed, 512 data RGUs, 324 video RGUs and 164 voice RGUs.
(3)   Customer relationships represent the number of billed customers who receive at least one of our services.
(4)   Penetration is calculated by dividing the number of users by the number of homes passed or available homes, as appropriate.
(5)   Total fiber miles are measured by taking the number of fiber strands in a cable and multiplying that number by the route distance. For example, a 10 mile route with 144 fiber strands would equal 1,440 fiber miles.
