HickoryTech Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

HickoryTech Corporation (NASDAQ: HTCO) today reported third quarter revenue of $45.8 million, up 1 percent compared to the corresponding quarter in 2011. Net income for the third quarter ended Sept. 30, 2012, totaled $1.7 million, down 18 percent year over year, and earnings per share totaled 13 cents per diluted share, a 19 percent decrease from last year primarily as a result of Telecom revenue declines and added depreciation expense companywide.

Year to date, revenue totaled $136.6 million, up 10 percent over the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2011. Earnings were $5.8 million a 15 percent decrease over the comparable nine-month period last year, and earnings per share of 43 cents were down 16 percent from last year.

“We continued to achieve solid growth in our fiber and data business in the third quarter and year-to-date, providing overall top-line growth, despite declines in our Telecom business,” said John Finke, HickoryTech’s president and chief executive officer. “The addition of IdeaOne to our operations is providing the growth we expected and we are on track to complete the integration in the fourth quarter.”

Fiber and Data Segment (before inter-segment eliminations)
Third quarter Fiber and Data Segment revenue totaled $15.7 million, up 36 percent year over year, attributed to success in retail and wholesale transport and data services and the addition of IdeaOne Telecom operations, which HickoryTech acquired on March 1, 2012. Costs and expenses for the segment totaled $13.3 million, an increase of 38 percent year over year. Net income totaled $1.5 million, up 27 percent from a year ago.

  • Fiber and Data revenue, excluding IdeaOne operations, increased 8 percent year over year.
  • Fiber and Data Segment operating income totaled $2.4 million for the third quarter of 2012, a 27 percent increase year over year.
  • For the nine-month period, Fiber and Data revenue was up 31 percent compared to the nine-month period in 2011, including 10 percent organic growth and seven months of IdeaOne Telecom results.

Equipment Segment (before inter-segment eliminations)
Third quarter Equipment Segment revenue totaled $15 million, a 9 percent decrease year over year, primarily as a result of lower equipment installations. For the nine-month period, Equipment Segment revenue increased 17 percent over 2011.

  • Sales of equipment decreased 9 percent relative to the third quarter 2011, and support services revenue decreased 3 percent for the comparable period.
  • Equipment Segment operating income totaled $890,000 in the third quarter of 2012, a reduction of $360,000 or 29 percent year over year. On a nine-month year-to-date basis, Equipment Segment operating income totaled $2.1 million in 2012, a $345,000, or 14 percent reduction over the same period 2011.

Telecom Segment (before inter-segment eliminations)
Third quarter 2012 Telecom Segment revenue totaled $15.7 million, a 12 percent decrease from a year ago. Telecom results reflect continued declines in network access and local service revenue, along with decreases in bill processing revenue from the company’s SuiteSolution billing and customer management services. Costs and expenses totaled $14.4 million, down 3 percent year over year. Telecom Segment net income totaled $800,000, a 54 percent decrease compared to the third quarter 2011.

  • Broadband revenue totaled $4.9 million, down 5 percent versus the third quarter in 2011. Broadband revenue includes DSL, Internet, data and digital TV services sold in the company’s legacy Telecom service area.
  • Network access revenue totaled $4.7 million, a 15 percent decrease year over year, which reflects a higher level of decline this year due to: the expiration of interstate infrastructure support reimbursements, the cancelation of a conferencing company contract, the initial impacts of industry-wide access reform regulation and access line and minute-of-use erosion.
  • Local service revenue totaled $3.1 million, down 12 percent year over year, a decline attributed to access line losses and regulatory reform.

Capital Expenditures
Capital expenditures in the third quarter totaled $9.4 million, net of grants from the Greater Minnesota Broadband Collaborative Project, compared with $5.6 million in third quarter 2011. On a nine-month, year-to-date basis, capital expenditures were $18.9 million in 2012 compared to $14.1 million in 2011.

Depreciation, Amortization and Interest Expense
Depreciation and amortization expense increased $1.1 million or 19 percent in the third quarter. The IdeaOne acquisition added $850,000 of depreciation and the remainder is attributed to increased capital expenditure associated with expansion of the network and success-based capital expenditures associated with Fiber and Data revenue growth.

Interest expense in the third quarter of 2012 and 2011 reflect accounting for interest rate swap agreements and the changes in the fair value of the swap agreements as non-cash interest expense, conforming to the Company’s restated financial statements for earlier periods.

Interest expense in the third quarter statement of operations totaled $1.6 million. This sum accounts for interest rate swap agreements and the changes in the fair value of the agreements as a non-cash interest expense. Year over year, third quarter interest expense decreased $1.3 million, or 44 percent, as a result of the fair value change in the swap agreements, an amount that offsets the interest increase associated with the higher level of debt brought on by the IdeaOne acquisition and higher interest rate charges associated with the company’s debt refinancing in the third quarter 2011. The effective interest rate for the first nine months of 2012, without regard to the fair market value change in the swap agreements, was approximately 4.2 percent on an annualized basis in 2012 versus 4.1 percent in 2011.

Debt Position
Long-term debt and current maturities of debt, including capitalized leases, totaled $137.2 million as of Sept. 30, 2012. The 2012 debt balance represents an increase of $16.9 million from $120.2 million as of Dec. 31, 2011, as a result of the debt deployed to acquire IdeaOne Telecom. However, the level of debt is down $4.3 million from $141.5 million at the end of the previous quarter ended June 30, 2012.

“We continue to use the free cash flows of our business to achieve our strategic objectives,” Finke said. “Our ability to continue to invest, pay down our debt and increase our shareholder dividend in the third quarter can be attributed to the strong free cash flow generated by our operations.”

Dividend Increased
In the third quarter, HickoryTech declared an increased quarterly dividend of $14.5 cents per share of HickoryTech common stock to be paid in the fourth quarter, representing a 4 percent increase from the previous dividend of 14 cents. This is the company’s fourth dividend increase in the past five years. The company has declared shareholder dividends for more than 60 years.
