SAN DIEGO, Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Leap Wireless International, Inc. (NASDAQ: LEAP) announced today that it plans to release its fourth quarter and full year 2013 financial and operational results through the filing of its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 and does not plan to issue a separate earnings release or conduct an earnings conference call.
