NII Holdings Reports 2017 Second Quarter Results

NII Holdings Reports 2017 Second Quarter Results


RESTON, Va., Aug. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- NII Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: NIHD) today announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2017. For the quarter, the Company generated consolidated operating revenues of $225 million, a consolidated operating loss of $69 million and consolidated adjusted OIBDA loss of $5 million. The Company's consolidated adjusted OIBDA excludes the impact of non-cash asset impairments, restructuring charges and other unusual items. Capital expenditures were $9 million for the quarter. The Company reported 29,000 3G net subscriber losses in the quarter and 104,000 subscriber losses on the Company's iDEN network.

"We significantly improved our operational free cash flow this quarter, which resulted from our continued focus on preserving our liquidity," said Roberto Rittes, Nextel Brazil's Chief Executive Officer. "Our revenues and adjusted OIBDA for this quarter were impacted by the continued decline in our iDEN subscriber base. In addition, during the quarter, other operators introduced more aggressive rate plans that affected our subscriber growth and churn. In response to this development, in August, we introduced new rate plans that we believe will compete well against the new offers in the market."

Nextel Brazil's average monthly service revenue per subscriber (ARPU) for the second quarter of 2017 was $19, relatively flat on a reported basis, and a 6% decrease on a constant currency basis, compared to the same quarter last year. Nextel Brazil's average monthly churn rate for the second quarter of 2017 was 3.95%, a 4 basis point decrease compared to the same quarter last year. Nextel Brazil's cost per gross addition (CPGA) was $103 for the second quarter of 2017, a $4 increase on a reported basis, and a 5% decrease on a constant currency basis, compared to the same quarter last year. Nextel Brazil's cash cost per user (CCPU) was $18 for the second quarter of 2017, a $2 increase on a reported basis, and a 2% increase on a constant currency basis, compared to the same quarter last year.

At quarter-end, the Company's sources of funding included $282 million of unrestricted cash and short-term investments, $114 million of cash held in escrow to secure indemnification obligations in connection with the sale of Nextel Mexico and $49 million in cash pledged as collateral to secure certain performance bonds in Brazil.

The Company reported net cash used in operating activities of $1 million for the second quarter, resulting in net cash used in operating activities of $46 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017. In light of these results, the Company updated its guidance for operational free cash burn for the full year 2017 from a range of $200 to $250 million to a range of $150 to $200 million.

In August, the Company announced that the lenders of Nextel Brazil's local bank loans have agreed to extend their standstill agreements with Nextel Brazil to October 31, 2017, during which time no amortization payments will be required with respect to the related loans. In addition, upon making the next semi-annual principal payment to the lender of Nextel Brazil's equipment financing facility, which is due in August, Nextel Brazil agreed to pay the lenders of its local bank loans the principal payments that were deferred under the original standstill agreement.

The Company also announced that it reached preliminary non-binding agreements with its bank lenders on the key terms for loan amendments. Among other changes, these terms provide for the deferral of principal payments until the end of 2021 and a holiday for financial covenant compliance until June 30, 2020. In exchange for these changes, Nextel Brazil would grant additional security interests to the bank lenders in the form of preferential rights to amounts held in certain of Nextel Brazil's bank accounts, among other things. These terms must be finalized in formal amendment agreements, and the final amendments remain subject to review and approval by the banks. There is no guarantee that the Company will be able to finalize these amendments on acceptable terms or at all. The Company believes that it remains on track to complete the process in time for AINMT to exercise its option to invest an additional $150 million should AINMT choose to do so.

"We are pleased with the progress we have made and the support we have received from all of our lenders to amend our local agreements, which is a key priority for us," said Dan Freiman, the Company's Chief Financial Officer. "With the closing of AINMT's first investment of $50 million, we are focused on completing these amendments and meeting all of the other conditions for AINMT's second investment of $150 million, if AINMT chooses to execute its option, which will enable us to pursue a new growth strategy for Nextel Brazil going forward."

Additional details regarding the Company's results, including a more detailed explanation on local currency operating metrics, are included in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended June 30, 2017 that was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission today. Additional operational and financial details, including a quarterly earnings presentation, are also available under the Company's Investor Relations link at www.nii.com.

The statements in this news release regarding the business and economic outlook, future performance, modifications to loan agreements, the completion of AINMT's second investment and guidance, as well as other statements that are not historical facts, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are estimates and projections reflecting management's judgment based on currently available information and involve a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those suggested by the forward-looking statements.

NON-GAAP RECONCILIATIONS 
FOR THE THREE AND SIX MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2017 AND 2016 
(UNAUDITED)

Consolidated OIBDA and Consolidated Adjusted OIBDA

Consolidated operating income before depreciation and amortization, or OIBDA, represents operating income before depreciation and amortization expense. Consolidated adjusted operating income before depreciation and amortization, or adjusted OIBDA, represents consolidated operating income before depreciation expense, amortization expense, material asset impairments, severance costs associated with publicly announced restructuring plans and other material non-recurring or unusual charges. Consolidated OIBDA and consolidated adjusted OIBDA are not measurements under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, may not be similar to consolidated OIBDA and consolidated adjusted OIBDA measures of other companies and should be considered in addition to, but not as substitutes for, the information contained in our statements of operations. We believe that consolidated OIBDA and consolidated adjusted OIBDA provide useful information to investors because they are indicators of our operating performance, especially in a capital intensive industry such as ours, since they exclude items that are not directly attributable to ongoing business operations. Consolidated OIBDA and consolidated adjusted OIBDA can be reconciled to our consolidated statements of operations as follows (in millions):

Average Monthly Revenue Per Handset/Unit in Service (ARPU)

Average monthly revenue per subscriber unit in service, or ARPU, is an industry term that measures service revenues, which we refer to as subscriber revenues, per period from our customers divided by the weighted average number of subscriber units in commercial service during that period.  ARPU is not a measurement under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, may not be similar to ARPU measures of other companies and should be considered in addition, but not as a substitute for, the information contained in our statements of operations.  We believe that ARPU provides useful information concerning the appeal of our rate plans and service offerings and our performance in attracting and retaining high value customers.  Other revenue includes revenues for such services as roaming, handset maintenance, cancellation fees, analog and other.  ARPU can be calculated as follows (in millions, except ARPU):

Cost per Gross Add (CPGA)

Cost per gross add, or CPGA, is an industry term that is calculated by dividing our selling, marketing and handset and accessory subsidy costs, excluding costs unrelated to initial customer acquisition, by our new subscribers during the period, or gross adds.  CPGA is not a measurement under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, may not be similar to CPGA measures of other companies and should be considered in addition, but not as a substitute for, the information contained in our statements of operations.  We believe CPGA is a measure of the relative cost of customer acquisition.  CPGA can be calculated as follows (in millions, except CPGA):

Cash Cost per Handset/User

Cash cost per handset/unit, or CCPU, represents the sum of cost of service, general and administrative expenses and customer retention and other costs divided by average handsets in service during the period and divided by the number of months in the period. CCPU is not a measurement under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, may not be similar to CCPU measures of other companies and should not be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information contained in our statements of operations.  We believe CCPU is a measure of the recurring costs we incur on a monthly basis to provide service to our subscribers. The CCPU calculation excludes material asset impairments, severance costs associated with publicly announced restructuring plans and other material non-recurring or unusual charges and is calculated as follows (in thousands, except CCPU):

Impact of Foreign Currency Fluctuations

The following table shows the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates on certain financial measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 compared to the same period in 2017 by (i) adjusting the relevant measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 to levels that would have resulted if the average foreign currency exchange rates for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 were the same as the average foreign currency exchange rates that were in effect for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017; and (ii) comparing the actual and adjusted financial measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 to the similar financial measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 to show the percentage change in those measures before and after taking those adjustments into account. The amounts reflected in the following table for operating income before depreciation and amortization on a consolidated basis and segment earnings for Nextel Brazil, before the adjustments for changes in foreign currency exchange rates, are based on the calculations contained elsewhere in these non-GAAP reconciliations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016. The average foreign currency exchange rates for each of the relevant currencies during each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 are included in the notes to the table below. The information reflected in the following table is not a measurement under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information contained in our statements of operations. We believe that these calculations provide useful information concerning our relative performance for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to the same period in 2016 by removing the impact of the significant difference in the average foreign currency exchange rates in effect for those periods.

(1)    The  "2Q 2016 Normalized" and "YTD 2016 Normalized" amounts reflect the impact of applying the average
         foreign currency exchange rates for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 to the operating revenues
         earned in foreign currencies and to the other components of each of the actual financial measures shown
         above for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, other than certain components of those measures
         consisting of U.S. dollar-based operating expenses, which were not adjusted. The amounts included under the
         columns "2Q 2016 Normalized" and "YTD 2016 Normalized" reflect the amount determined by adding the "2Q
         2016 Adjustment" and "YTD 2016 Adjustment" amounts calculated as described in the preceding sentence to
         the "2Q 2016 Actual" and "YTD 2016 Actual" amounts and reflect the impact of the year-over-year change in the
         average foreign currency exchange rates on each of the financial measures for the three and six months ended
         June 30, 2017. The average foreign currency exchange rates for each of the relevant currencies during the three
         and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 for purposes of these calculations were as follows:

Operational Free Cash Burn

Operational free cash burn is an industry term that represents all of the Company's cash spending, with the exception of payments related to debt principal and interest, cash returned from escrow in connection with the sale of Nextel Mexico and cash recovered from certain performance bonds relating to the Company's obligations to deploy its WCDMA spectrum in Brazil. Operational free cash burn is not derived from or based on any measurement under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States but is instead calculated through the Company's cash forecasting process. For this reason, we believe that it would require unreasonable efforts to provide a quantitative reconciliation of this term.
