ATN International, Inc. reported first quarter 2024 results with revenues increasing by 1% to $186.8 million. Total high-speed broadband subscribers increased by 12% and broadband homes passed by high-speed data services expanded by 28%. However, delays in certain US Segment Carrier Services Projects and lower domestic business revenues impacted the first quarter net loss and Adjusted EBITDA. The company revised its full year 2024 outlook, expecting revenue in the range of $730 million to $750 million, Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $190 million to $200 million, and Capital Expenditures in the range of $100 million to $110 million. The net debt ratio is expected to be in the range of 2.25x to 2.50x exiting 2024.
ATN International, Inc. ha riportato i risultati del primo trimestre 2024 con un aumento delle entrate dell'1% arrivando a 186,8 milioni di dollari. Gli abbonati alla banda larga ad alta velocità sono aumentati del 12% e le abitazioni raggiunte dai servizi di dati ad alta velocità si sono espanse del 28%. Tuttavia, i ritardi in alcuni progetti dei servizi di trasporto del segmento statunitense e la riduzione dei ricavi delle attività domestiche hanno influito sulla perdita netta e sull'EBITDA rettificato del primo trimestre. L'azienda ha rivisto le previsioni per l'intero anno 2024, prevedendo ricavi tra 730 e 750 milioni di dollari, un EBITDA rettificato tra 190 e 200 milioni di dollari, e spese in conto capitale tra 100 e 110 milioni di dollari. Il rapporto sul debito netto è previsto tra 2,25x e 2,50x alla fine del 2024.
ATN International, Inc. reportó los resultados del primer trimestre de 2024 con ingresos incrementados en un 1% hasta los $186.8 millones. Los suscriptores de banda ancha de alta velocidad aumentaron un 12% y las viviendas alcanzadas por servicios de datos de alta velocidad se expandieron en un 28%. Sin embargo, retrasos en ciertos proyectos de Servicios de Transporte del Segmento en EE.UU. y menores ingresos de negocios domésticos impactaron la pérdida neta y el EBITDA ajustado del primer trimestre. La compañía revisó su perspectiva para todo el año 2024, esperando ingresos en el rango de $730 millones a $750 millones, EBITDA ajustado en el rango de $190 millones a $200 millones, y Gastos de Capital en el rango de $100 millones a $110 millones. Se espera que la relación de deuda neta esté en el rango de 2.25x a 2.50x al finalizar 2024.
ATN International, Inc.는 2024년 첫 분기에 매출이 1% 증가하여 1억 8,680만 달러를 기록했다고 보고했습니다. 고속 광대역 가입자 수는 12% 증가하였고, 고속 데이터 서비스에 의한 가정 접속이 28% 확장되었습니다. 그러나 미국 부문의 통신 서비스 프로젝트 지연과 국내 비즈니스 수익의 감소로 인해 첫 분기 순손실과 조정 EBITDA에 영향을 미쳤습니다. 회사는 2024년 전체 연도 전망을 수정하여 매출은 7억 3,000만 달러에서 7억 5,000만 달러 사이를, 조정 EBITDA는 1억 9,000만 달러에서 2억 달러 사이를, 그리고 자본 지출은 1억 달러에서 1억 1,000만 달러 사이를 기대하고 있습니다. 순부채 비율은 2024년 말 2.25배에서 2.50배 사이가 될 것으로 예상됩니다.

Le nombre d'abonnés à l'internet haut débit a augmenté de 12% et le nombre de foyers desservis par les services de données à haute vitesse s’est étendu de 28%. Cependant, des retards dans certains projets de services de transport de segments aux États-Unis et des revenus commerciaux domestiques plus faibles ont affecté la perte nette et l'EBITDA ajusté du premier trimestre. La société a révisé ses prévisions pour l'année complète 2024, s'attendant à des revenus dans la fourchette de 730 à 750 millions de dollars, un EBITDA ajusté de 190 à 200 millions de dollars, et des dépenses en immobilisations de 100 à 110 millions de dollars. Le ratio de la dette nette devrait être dans la fourchette de 2,25x à 2,50x à la fin de 2024.
ATN International, Inc. berichtete über die Ergebnisse des ersten Quartals 2024 mit einer Umsatzsteigerung von 1% auf 186,8 Millionen Dollar. Die Anzahl der Hochgeschwindigkeits-Breitbandabonnenten stieg um 12% und die durch Hochgeschwindigkeits-Datendienste erschlossenen Haushalte um 28%. Verzögerungen bei bestimmten Trägerdienstprojekten des US-Segments und geringere inländische Geschäftseinnahmen beeinträchtigten jedoch den Nettoverlust und das bereinigte EBITDA im ersten Quartal. Das Unternehmen revidierte seine Prognose für das gesamte Jahr 2024 mit erwarteten Umsätzen im Bereich von 730 Millionen bis 750 Millionen Dollar, einem bereinigten EBITDA von 190 Millionen bis 200 Millionen Dollar und Kapitalausgaben zwischen 100 Millionen und 110 Millionen Dollar. Das Verhältnis der Nettoverschuldung wird Ende 2024 voraussichtlich zwischen 2,25x und 2,50x liegen.
Positive
  • First quarter revenues increased by 1% to $186.8 million.
  • Total high-speed broadband subscribers grew by 12%.
  • Broadband homes passed by high-speed data services expanded by 28%.
  • First quarter net loss increased to $(6.3) million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased by 3% to $43.5 million.
  • Revenue for full year 2024 expected to be $730 million to $750 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for full year 2024 expected to be $190 million to $200 million.
  • Capital Expenditures for full year 2024 expected to be $100 million to $110 million.
  • Net Debt Ratio expected to be 2.25x to 2.50x exiting 2024.
Negative
  • Delays in certain US Segment Carrier Services Projects impacted financial results.
  • Lower domestic business revenues contributed to a net loss in the first quarter.
  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased by 3% due to higher costs of services and others.
  • Revised full year outlook due to softer than expected first quarter results.
  • Prioritizing improving operating cash flow by reducing capital expenditures.

ATN's first quarter financial results show a modest revenue increase of 1% year-over-year, reaching $186.8 million. This is a pivotal figure indicating the company's market stance and highlights the challenge they face in scaling up while managing costs effectively. However, it's important to dissect the net loss increase to $(6.3) million from the year-ago period. Investors should note the impact of higher interest and income tax expenses, alongside restructuring costs of $1.2 million. These expenses have evidently outstripped the advantages gained from reductions in depreciation, amortization and lower restructuring expenses compared to the previous year. The revised full-year outlook, with revenues expected between $730 million to $750 million and capital expenditures anticipated in the range of $100 million to $110 million, signals a strategic pivot. Management aims to streamline operations and reduce expenditures, reflecting a cautious stance that may be prudent considering the first quarter performance. The net debt ratio expectation, set between 2.25x and 2.50x, should be monitored as an indicator of leverage and financial health.

ATN's drive for expansion through their 'First-to-Fiber' and 'Glass & Steel™' strategies has resulted in subscriber growth and network reach expansion, evident from the 12% increase in high-speed broadband subscribers and a 28% rise in broadband homes passed by high-speed data services. These metrics are vital for gauging the company's future revenue potential, as subscriber growth typically translates into predictable, recurring revenue. However, the 2% decline in US Telecom revenue and a 9% decline in Adjusted EBITDA for the segment is concerning. It could reflect market saturation, competitive pressures, or operational inefficiencies. The delays in major US carrier services projects, which have impacted financial results, also denote possible challenges in project management and execution. Investors should weigh the potential of the company's international operations against its domestic challenges. ATN's strategic investment plan is entering its final year and the anticipated reduction in capital expenditures suggests a shift from growth to consolidation and operational efficiency.

Earnings Conference Call

BEVERLY, Mass., April 24, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ATN International, Inc. (“ATN” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: ATNI), a leading provider of digital infrastructure and communications services, today reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2024.

Remarks by Brad Martin, ATN Chief Executive Officer
“The ATN team continues to execute on our First-to-Fiber and Glass & Steel™ strategies to expand our fiber-rich digital infrastructure and next generation fixed wireless capabilities. While we saw growth in our operational metrics year-over-year, our first quarter financial results were below our expectations. In the International Telecom segment, we saw revenue and Adjusted EBITDA growth of 3%, respectively, reflecting the growth in our high-speed broadband subscribers. This growth was offset by a 2% decline in US Telecom revenues and a 9% decline in Adjusted EBITDA for the segment. The US Telecom results reflect delays in major carrier services projects and weaker than expected business revenues.

“We are revising our Fiscal Year 2024 guidance to reflect the softer than expected first quarter results and our current expectations for the balance of the year. While our International Telecom segment is expected to show continued year-on-year growth, the carrier services project delays from the first quarter are expected to create headwinds impacting the US Telecom segment throughout the year. To address this shortfall, our priorities are working to recover the project delivery schedule, pursuing and closing business revenue pipeline opportunities, and accelerating actions to drive the Company toward higher margin levels.

Additionally, we are reducing our capital expenditures for 2024 in line with the delays in certain projects and lowering our Adjusted EBITDA expectations as we prioritize improving operating cash flow. We believe that our investments are important to expand the longevity of our network and position us to enhance shareholder value over time.”

First Quarter 2024 Financial Results

Consolidated revenues were $186.8 million, up 1% versus $185.8 million in the year-ago quarter. This increase primarily reflects higher fixed revenues in the International segment, as well as higher construction and other revenues, which were largely offset by lower carrier services revenue in the US Telecom Segment and a decline in consumer mobile revenue.

Operating income was $4.6 million in the first quarter versus $0.6 million in the year-ago quarter. The increase was primarily due to lower restructuring expenses and a reduction in depreciation and amortization expenses year-over-year.

Net loss attributable to ATN stockholders in the first quarter of 2024 was $(6.3) million, or a loss of $(0.50) per share compared with a net loss attributable to ATN stockholders of $(5.9) million, or $(0.44) loss per share, in the year-ago quarter. The increase in the net loss attributable to ATN stockholders was the result of an increase in interest and income tax expenses, partially offset by decreases in depreciation, amortization and restructuring expenses. In all periods, the loss per share calculation includes the impact of preferred dividends that are not included in the net loss calculation.

Adjusted EBITDA1 decreased to $43.5 million in the first quarter of 2024 from $44.8 million in the year-ago quarter due to higher costs of services and other, which more than offset the increase in revenue.

Segment Operating Results (in Thousands)

The Company recorded financial results in three categories: (i) International Telecom; (ii) US Telecom; and (iii) Corporate and Other.

ATN’s Strategic Plan and Key Performance Indicators

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Definition of Terms

In addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release also contains non-GAAP financial measures. Specifically, the Company has included EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Net Debt, and Net Debt Ratio in this release and the tables included herein.

EBITDA is defined as Operating income (loss) before depreciation and amortization expense.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as Operating income (loss) before depreciation and amortization expense, transaction-related charges, restructuring expenses, one-time impairment or special charges, non-cash stock-based compensation, and the gain (loss) on disposition of assets.

Net Debt is defined as total debt less cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash.

Net Debt Ratio is defined as Net Debt divided by the sum of the trailing four quarters Adjusted EBITDA at the measurement date.

The Company believes that the inclusion of these non-GAAP financial measures helps investors gain a meaningful understanding of the Company's core operating results and enhances the usefulness of comparing such performance with prior periods. Management uses these non-GAAP measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, as the basis for measuring the Company’s core operating performance and comparing such performance to that of prior periods. The non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release are not meant to be considered superior to or a substitute for results of operations prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are set forth in the text of, and the accompanying tables to this press release. While non-GAAP financial measures are an important tool for financial and operational decision-making and for evaluating the Company’s own operating results over different periods of time, the Company urges investors to review the reconciliation of these financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures included below, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate its business.
