Multiband Announces 2012 Third Quarter Results

2012 Year-to-Date Revenues of $227.7 million up 2.3% from $222.6 million in comparable period in 2011

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Multiband Corporation, (NASDAQ:MBND), a leading Home Service Provider (HSP) for DIRECTV and the nation's largest DIRECTV Master System Operator (MSO) for Multiple Dwelling Units (MDUs), today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Third Quarter Highlights

  • MDU segment revenue increases by 31.2% and 25.0% for the three and nine month periods in 2012 over the comparable periods in 2011 due to a 60.0% increase in the number of subscribers covered under its Master System Operator agreement with DIRECTV reflecting the consolidation occurring in the market. Total subscribers supported under this agreement now total 139,000
  • Q3 EBITDA grows by 71.4% to $6.0 million over $3.5 million reported for Q2. Company does not capitalize its vehicle leases. If these leases were capitalized, 2012 Adjusted EBITDA would total $10.1 million for the current quarter and $22.4 million year-to-date
  • Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the Company announced that DIRECTV had extended both the HSP and MDU contracts now expiring in 2016

James L. Mandel, CEO of Multiband, commented, "In 2012, our core HSP revenues with DIRECTV were lower than the previous year periods by $8 million and $15 million for the three and the nine months ended September 30. Although we have replaced that revenue via our diversification initiatives, the replacement revenue is not as profitable as what we experience from our HSP business. As we have shown in the past, we are able to improve our operations but it does take significant effort and time. We are confident that these new sources of revenue will produce materially better results in 2013."

Other Highlights

  • Operating income was $3.5 million for both the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012
  • Net income attributable to common stockholders was $1.6 million for the quarter ($0.07 per basic and fully diluted share)
  • Cash grew to $10.1 million from $8.7 million at the end of the second quarter, an increase of 16%

NON-GAAP Financial Measures
To comply with Regulation G promulgated pursuant to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, Multiband has attached to this news release, and will post to the company's investor relations website (www.multibandusa.com), a reconciliation of differences between GAAP and non-GAAP financial information that may be required in connection with issuing the it's quarterly financial results.

Multiband, as is common in its industry, uses Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of performance to demonstrate earnings exclusive of interest and non-cash events. Multiband manages its business based on its cash flows. Multiband, in its daily management of its business affairs and analysis of its monthly, quarterly and annual performance, makes its decisions based on cash flows, not on the amortization of assets obtained through historical activities. Multiband, in managing its current and future affairs, cannot affect the amortization of the intangible assets to any material degree, and therefore uses Adjusted EBITDA as its primary management guide.  Since an outside investor may base its evaluation of Multiband's performance based on the net income of loss and not its cash flows, there is a limitation to the Adjusted EBITDA measurement. Adjusted EBITDA is not, and should not be considered, an alternative to net income or loss, income or loss from operations, or any other measure for determining operating performance of liquidity, as determined under accounting principals generally accepted in the United States (GAAP).  The most directly comparable GAAP reference in Multiband's case is the removal of interest, depreciation, amortization, taxes and other non-cash expense.
