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.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality.

Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
"At our booth we are showing how to provide trust in the Internet of Things. Trust is where everything starts to become secure and trustworthy.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
