NII Holdings Reports Third Quarter 2016 Results
- Operating revenues of $261 million for the third quarter
-- 3G revenues increased 7% year-over-year in local currency
- Operating loss of $1.4 billion for the third quarter, primarily due to a $1.31 billion non-cash asset impairment charge
- Adjusted OIBDA of $16 million for the third quarter, an improvement of $40 million year-over-year
-- Third consecutive quarter of positive adjusted OIBDA in Brazil
- Quarter-end cash and short-term investments of $312 million, and $203 million of cash held in escrow
- Third quarter net subscriber losses of 136,000, almost all on the iDEN network
-- Third quarter 3G net subscriber losses of 6,000 and migrations from iDEN of 35,000, resulting in an ending base of 2.75 million 3G subscribers, a 1% increase from last quarter

RESTON, Va., Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- NII Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: NIHD) today announced its financial results for the third quarter of 2016. For the quarter, the Company generated consolidated operating revenues of $261 million, consolidated adjusted operating income before depreciation and amortization (adjusted OIBDA) of $16 million and a consolidated operating loss of $1.4 billion. The Company's consolidated adjusted OIBDA excludes the impact of non-cash asset impairments, restructuring charges and other unusual items. During the third quarter, the Company recorded a $1.31 billion non-cash impairment charge to write down its long-lived assets to fair value. Capital expenditures were $14 million for the quarter. The Company ended the quarter with $312 million in consolidated cash and short-term investments and $203 million of cash held in escrow. The Company reported net subscriber losses of 136,000 in the quarter, which were primarily driven by continued subscriber losses on the Company's iDEN network.

"Our results this quarter reflect the continuation of our strategy to focus on balancing our cost structure with our current revenue stream, which has been adversely effected by the decline in our iDEN subscriber base," said Steve Shindler, Chief Executive Officer. "We are continuing to focus on attracting 3G and 4G subscribers that generate healthy levels of ARPU, while investing in retention efforts to address the ongoing pressure on churn resulting from the weak economic conditions in Brazil."

Nextel Brazil's average monthly service revenue per subscriber (ARPU) for the third quarter of 2016 increased 16% on a reported basis, and 7% on a constant currency basis, compared to the same quarter last year. Nextel Brazil's average monthly churn rate for the quarter increased to 3.99 percent in the third quarter of 2016 from 3.54 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 $93 for the third quarter of 2016, an $11 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 $18 for the third quarter of 2016, a $1 increase from the same quarter last year.

"We again generated positive adjusted OIBDA and slightly increased our 3G subscriber base this quarter as we continued to focus on managing our costs and protecting our liquidity while maintaining our competitive position in the market," said Dan Freiman, Chief Financial Officer. "At the same time we are continuing to pursue strategic alternatives that enhance the value of the company."

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 September 30, 2016 that was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission today. In 2015, the Company sold its operations in Mexico and Argentina, and as a result, all results presented in this press release reflect these markets as discontinued operations. Additional operational and financial details, including a quarterly earnings presentation, are also available under the Company's Investor Relations link at www.nii.com.

In addition to the financial results prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP) provided throughout this press release and in the attached financial tables, NII Holdings has presented consolidated adjusted OIBDA, as well as Nextel Brazil's ARPU, CCPU, and CPGA.

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):

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