Third Quarter 2019 Financial Results Compared to Third Quarter 2018

Revenues increased $16.7 million, or 6.2%, to $285.0 million for the third quarter of 2019, including a $7.0 million contribution from Clearwave Communications ("Clearwave") operations, which was acquired in January 2019. The remaining increase was driven primarily by organic residential data and business services revenue growth, partially offset by decreases in residential video and advertising sales revenues. For the third quarter of 2019 and 2018, residential data revenues comprised 47.1% and 46.3% of total revenues and business services revenues comprised 17.8% and 14.7% of total revenues, respectively.

Operating expenses (excluding depreciation and amortization) were $94.9 million in the third quarter of 2019 compared to $92.0 million in the third quarter of 2018. The increase was primarily attributable to additional expenses related to Clearwave operations, higher regulatory costs resulting from certain passthrough fees that were historically reported on a net basis and higher compensation and rent expenses, partially offset by lower programming expenses. As a percentage of revenues, operating expenses were 33.3% for the third quarter of 2019 compared to 34.3% for the year-ago quarter.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $58.9 million for the third quarter of 2019 and decreased $0.6 million, or 1.0%, compared to the third quarter of 2018. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower marketing expenses, professional fees and general and workers' compensation insurance costs, partially offset by higher rebranding expenses and acquisition-related costs as well as additional expenses related to Clearwave operations. Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenues were 20.7% and 22.2% for the third quarter of 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Depreciation and amortization expense was $48.7 million for the third quarter of 2019 and decreased $1.7 million, or 3.3%, compared to the third quarter of 2018. The decrease was due primarily to assets that became fully depreciated since the third quarter of 2018, partially offset by new assets placed in service since the third quarter of 2018 and additional depreciation and amortization related to Clearwave operations. The Company recognized $2.4 million and $3.1 million of net losses on asset disposals during the third quarter of 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Interest expense increased $0.6 million, or 4.0%, to $16.1 million, driven primarily by additional outstanding debt and interest rate swap settlements, partially offset by lower interest rates on variable rate term loans, including loans used to redeem the Company's higher rate senior unsecured notes in the second quarter of 2019.

Other income of $1.6 million and $1.5 million in the third quarter of 2019 and 2018, respectively, consisted primarily of interest and investment income.

Income tax provision was $15.8 million in the third quarter of 2019 compared to $11.0 million in the prior year quarter. The effective tax rate was 24.1% and 22.4% for the third quarter of 2019 and 2018, respectively. The increase in the effective tax rate primarily related to a decrease in income tax benefits attributable to state effective tax rate changes, partially offset by an increase in income tax benefits attributable to equity-based compensation awards.

Net income was $49.8 million in the third quarter of 2019 compared to $38.3 million in the prior year quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA was $140.0 million and $122.7 million for the third quarter of 2019 and 2018, respectively, an increase of 14.1%. Capital expenditures totaled $65.8 million and $68.3 million for the third quarter of 2019 and 2018, respectively. Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures for the third quarter of 2019 was $74.1 million compared to $54.4 million in the prior year quarter.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

At September 30, 2019, the Company had $145.8 million of cash and cash equivalents on hand compared to $264.1 million at December 31, 2018. The Company's debt balance was approximately $1.3 billion and $1.2 billion at September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively. The Company also had $343.3 million available for borrowing under its revolving credit facility as of September 30, 2019.

The Company paid $12.8 million in dividends to stockholders during the third quarter of 2019.

Additional Information

The information in this press release should be read in conjunction with the condensed consolidated financial statements and notes thereto contained in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2019 (the "Third Quarter 2019 Form 10-Q"), which will be posted on the "SEC Filings" section of the Cable ONE Investor Relations website at ir.cableone.net when it is filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). Investors and others interested in more information about Cable ONE should consult the Company's website, which is regularly updated with financial and other important information about the Company.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses certain measures that are not defined by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP") to evaluate various aspects of its business. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures and capital expenditures as a percentage of Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures and should be considered in addition to, not as superior to, or as a substitute for, net income, net profit margin, capital expenditures as a percentage of net income or net cash provided by operating activities reported in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures are reconciled to net income, Adjusted EBITDA margin is reconciled to net profit margin and capital expenditures as a percentage of Adjusted EBITDA is reconciled to capital expenditures as a percentage of net income. Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures is also reconciled to net cash provided by operating activities. These reconciliations are included in the "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Measures" tables within this press release.

"Adjusted EBITDA" is defined as net income plus interest expense, income tax provision, depreciation and amortization, equity-based compensation, severance expense, (gain) loss on deferred compensation, acquisition-related costs, (gain) loss on asset disposals, system conversion costs, rebranding costs, other (income) expense and other unusual expenses, as provided in the "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Measures" tables within this press release. As such, it eliminates the significant non-cash depreciation and amortization expense that results from the capital-intensive nature of the Company's business as well as other non-cash or special items and is unaffected by the Company's capital structure or investment activities. This measure is limited in that it does not reflect the periodic costs of certain capitalized tangible and intangible assets used in generating revenues and the Company's cash cost of debt financing. These costs are evaluated through other financial measures.

"Adjusted EBITDA margin" is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by total revenues.

"Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures," when used as a liquidity measure, is calculated as net cash provided by operating activities excluding the impact of capital expenditures, interest expense, income tax provision, changes in operating assets and liabilities, change in deferred income taxes and other unusual expenses, as provided in the "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Measures" tables within this press release.

"Capital expenditures as a percentage of Adjusted EBITDA" is defined as capital expenditures divided by Adjusted EBITDA.

The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures and capital expenditures as a percentage of Adjusted EBITDA to assess its performance, and it also uses Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures as an indicator of its ability to fund operations and make additional investments with internally-generated funds. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA generally correlates to the measure used in the leverage ratio calculations under the Company's credit facilities to determine compliance with the covenants contained in the credit agreement. Adjusted EBITDA and capital expenditures are also significant performance measures used by the Company in its annual incentive compensation program. Adjusted EBITDA does not take into account cash used for mandatory debt service requirements or other non-discretionary expenditures, and thus does not represent residual funds available for discretionary uses.

The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and capital expenditures as a percentage of Adjusted EBITDA are useful to investors in evaluating the operating performance of the Company. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures is useful to investors as it shows the Company's performance while taking into account cash outflows for capital expenditures and is one of several indicators of the Company's ability to service debt, make investments and/or return capital to its shareholders.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures, capital expenditures as a percentage of Adjusted EBITDA and similar measures with similar titles are common measures used by investors, analysts and peers to compare performance in the Company's industry, although the Company's measures of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures and capital expenditures as a percentage of Adjusted EBITDA may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

(1)

Average monthly revenue per unit ("ARPU") values represent the applicable quarterly residential service revenues (excluding installation and activation fees) divided by the corresponding average of the number of PSUs at the beginning and end of each period, divided by three.

(2)

The increases in residential voice and business services ARPU from the prior year were partially a result of certain passthrough fees that were historically reported on a net basis. Residential voice and business services ARPU for the third quarter of 2019 would have been $33.11 and $215.83, respectively, if reported on a comparable basis.

(3)

ARPU values represent quarterly business services revenues divided by the average of the number of business customer relationships at the beginning and end of each period, divided by three.
