WAYNESBORO, Va.--()--Lumos Networks Corp. (“Lumos Networks”, “Lumos” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq:LMOS), a leading fiber-based service provider in the Mid-Atlantic region, today announced its second quarter of 2016 results. Total revenue in the second quarter of 2016 was $52.4 million, an increase of nearly 3% from the prior year period. The Company generated operating income of $9.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016, up nearly 5% year-over-year. Net Income attributable to Lumos Networks Corp. was $1.2 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2016, down from $3.3 million in the prior year period. Total Adjusted EBITDA was approximately $23.8 million, up nearly 5% from the prior year period.

“Lumos Networks executed well in the quarter and we delivered one of our strongest operational quarters in my tenure as CEO,” said Timothy G. Biltz, President and CEO of Lumos Networks. “We accelerated our year-over-year data revenue growth to over 10%, led by approximately 36% growth in our FTTC business and a significant acceleration in our Enterprise growth to 14%. Our combined FTTC and Enterprise businesses, which are approximately 95% tied to Ethernet and other advanced fiber products, grew over 22% year-over-year in the second quarter.”

Mr. Biltz continued, “Given our strong operational performance in the first half of 2016 and continued expected strong demand from our Carrier and Enterprise customers, we reiterate our 2016 annual guidance for revenue of $206-$210 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $93-$96 million.”

“During the second quarter of 2016, we saw increased Enterprise demand in our recently completed Network Expansion project into the markets of Richmond and Hampton Roads/Norfolk,” Mr. Biltz said. “Based upon our recently completed extensive market analysis, we believe that these markets increase our total Enterprise addressable market by $221 million or approximately 67%. Our prior analysis indicated an increase of $135 million, or 60%. This increase is largely related to the efficient and strategic placement of our fiber routes combined with continued solid economic growth in many of our enterprise markets.”

“I am also pleased to announce that we made significant progress in our project focused on separation of our regulated, legacy assets during the second quarter,” Mr. Biltz concluded. “We continue to expect to have our full network separation analysis completed in conjunction with our third quarter of 2016 earnings call.”

Business Outlook

For the full year 2016, the Company reiterates its financial guidance for revenue of $206 to $210 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $93 to $96 million and capital expenditures of $85 to $95 million.

1   The Company had previously reported gross margin percentages that were calculated as the ratio of gross profit (total revenue less network access charges) to total revenue. Beginning in Q1 2016, the Company began reporting cost of revenue, which includes network access charges and certain other facilities rental costs and adjusted its measurement of gross margin to include these costs. Historical periods have been revised to be consistent with the current period presentation.
2 Contribution Margin, Contribution Margin Ratio, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are non-GAAP measures. See definitions on page 3 of this earnings release.
3 Fiber miles are calculated as the fiber route miles multiplied by the number of fiber strands within each cable (represents an average of 49 fibers per route as of June 30, 2016).
4 Data centers reported include both commercial and private data centers and Company-owned facilities offering commercial data center services.
5 During the first quarter of 2016, the Company revised its fiber-to-the-premise broadband connections as a result of enhanced system reporting capabilities. Historical fiber-to-the-premise broadband connections for prior quarters have been revised to reflect the updated information.
