- Adjusted OIBDA of $14 million for the second quarter, an improvement of $109 million year-over-year
-- Second consecutive quarter of positive adjusted OIBDA in Brazil

RESTON, Va., Aug. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- NII Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: NIHD) today announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2016. For the quarter, the Company generated consolidated operating revenues of $249 million, consolidated adjusted operating income before depreciation and amortization (adjusted OIBDA) of $14 million and a consolidated operating loss of $29 million. The Company's consolidated adjusted OIBDA excludes the impact of non-cash asset impairments, restructuring charges and other unusual items. Capital expenditures were $4 million for the quarter. The Company ended the quarter with $429 million in consolidated cash and short-term investments and $208 million of cash held in escrow. The Company reported net subscriber losses of 179,000 in the quarter, which were primarily driven by continued subscriber losses on the Company's iDEN network.

"We continued to make progress this quarter toward improving our operating results," said Steve Shindler, Chief Executive Officer. "Our team in Brazil has maintained a steady focus on managing our cost structure to align with our revenue stream, resulting in improved adjusted OIBDA and lower cash burn. Our subscriber results reflect both our strategy to selectively load subscribers with attractive ARPU and profitability profiles and the challenging economic and competitive environment in Brazil that continues to put pressure on our churn."

Nextel Brazil's average monthly service revenue per subscriber (ARPU) for the second quarter of 2016 increased 6% on a constant currency basis compared to the same quarter last year, but declined by $1 on a reported basis due to a 14% year-over-year decline in the average value of the Brazilian real. Nextel Brazil's average monthly churn rate for the quarter increased to 3.99 percent in the second quarter of 2016 from 3.34 percent in the same quarter last year due to increases in both 3G and iDEN churn. Nextel Brazil's cost per gross addition (CPGA) was $99 for the second quarter of 2016, a $108 decrease from the same quarter last year, primarily due to an increase in new 3G postpaid subscribers in Brazil who use their own handsets rather than purchasing a new one from the Company. Nextel Brazil's cash cost per user (CCPU) was $16 for the second quarter of 2016, a $5 decrease from the same quarter last year primarily resulting from reductions in various operating costs and a decline in local currency exchange rates.

"We continued to focus on our liquidity, which increased by $62 million during the quarter primarily from the recovery of $57 million of cash that was securing performance bonds in Brazil," said Dan Freiman, Chief Financial Officer. "We were also able to keep our cash burn low as we continued to benefit from cost reductions in our business while keeping our revenues stable."

Receipt of Bank Covenant Waivers in Brazil

The Company also announced that Nextel Brazil, its wholly-owned operating subsidiary, has secured waivers from Banco do Brazil and Caixa Econômica Federal related to certain financial covenants in its local bank loans. In accordance with the waivers, the lenders have agreed to waive Nextel Brazil's obligation to comply with a net debt to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, or EBITDA, ratio test for the June 30, 2016 measurement date. The next measurement date for the net debt to EBITDA ratio test will be December 31, 2016, at which point Nextel Brazil must maintain a net debt to EBITDA ratio of no greater than 3.5.

Roaming and RAN Sharing Agreement

In May 2016, Nextel Brazil entered into an amendment to a nationwide roaming voice and data services agreement with Telefonica Brazil S.A. to reduce the usage rates for roaming traffic. Concurrently, Nextel Brazil entered into a 10-year radio access network, or RAN, sharing agreement with Telefonica under which Telefonica will permit Nextel Brazil to use its tower and equipment infrastructure to transmit telecommunications signals on Nextel Brazil's spectrum. These agreements require Nextel Brazil to meet certain minimum annual commitments over a five-year period totaling 800 million Brazilian reais, which replaced the remaining commitments under the original roaming agreement. Nextel Brazil is required to prepay 250 million Brazilian reais shortly after the agreements become effective with receipt of regulatory approvals, which occurred in early August. The Company expects the RAN sharing agreement to provide significant financial benefits to Nextel Brazil. It will allow Nextel Brazil to cease operating a significant number of its transmitter and receiver sites in low-usage areas, which would reduce future operating expenses. In addition, Nextel Brazil will be able to forego construction of new transmitter and receiver sites and utilize the RAN sharing agreement to fulfill regulatory coverage obligations, which would reduce future operating expenses and capital expenditures.

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, 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/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.

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, 2015 compared to the same periods in 2016 by (i) adjusting the relevant measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 to levels that would have resulted if the average foreign currency exchange rates for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 were the same as the average foreign currency exchange rates that were in effect for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016; and (ii) comparing the actual and adjusted financial measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 to the similar financial measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 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, 2016 and 2015. The average foreign currency exchange rates for each of the relevant currencies during each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 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, 2016 compared to the same periods in 2015 by removing the impact of the significant difference in the average foreign currency exchange rates in effect for those periods.
