Cincinnati Bell Inc. (CBB ) today announced financial results for the full year and fourth quarter of 2014 highlighted by the successful execution of its key initiatives and achieving its full year financial guidance (excluding Wireless). For the first time since 2007, the company generated year-over-year Wireline revenue growth on continued demand for strategic fiber products. The company also succeeded in its goal of producing positive free cash flow for the year. In addition, Cincinnati Bell used proceeds from the sale of its wireless spectrum and the partial monetization of its investment in CyrusOne to reduce net debt(3) by more than $500 million during the year.



"We have made remarkable strides towards transforming Cincinnati Bell into a growing fiber based entertainment, communications and IT solutions company," said Ted Torbeck, president and chief executive officer. "Our results demonstrate this team’s ability to execute on its objectives and provide confidence to accelerate our fiber investments."

Torbeck also added, "Our efforts in 2015 will be focused on the efficient deployment of fiber with a renewed emphasis on enhancing customer experiences to capitalize on our unique market opportunity."

CONSOLIDATED RESULTS(4)

Year-to-date consolidated revenue was $1.3 billion, a 3 percent increase over the prior year as demand for strategic products and increased hardware sales more than offset declines in Wireless revenue and legacy products. Strategic revenue totaled $436 million for the year, up 21 percent compared to a year ago. Fourth quarter consolidated revenue totaled $308 million, consistent with the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA for the year was $379 million and $78 million in the fourth quarter. Operating income equaled $116 million and $7 million for the full year and fourth quarter of 2014, respectively. Adjusted EBITDA and operating income were down from a year ago primarily due to increased costs associated with preparing to shut-down wireless operations and accelerating our fiber investments. Net income for the year totaled $76 million, resulting in diluted earnings per share of $0.31.

SEGMENT RESULTS

Wireline Segment

Wireline strategic revenue totaled $311 million during 2014, up 23 percent over the prior year, as growth from these products outpaced legacy declines each quarter in 2014.

-- Wireline revenue totaled $188 million for the quarter and $741 million for the full year, up $6 million and $16 million, respectively, from the same periods in 2013. -- Fioptics revenue increased 40 percent compared to a year ago, totaling $40 million for the quarter and $142 million for the year.

-- Adjusted EBITDA totaled $74 million and $318 million, for the fourth quarter and full year of 2014, respectively.

Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to, those discussed in this release and those discussed in other documents we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). More information on potential risks and uncertainties is available in our recent filings with the SEC, including Cincinnati Bell’s Form 10-K report, Form 10-Q reports and Form 8-K reports.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains information about adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA), Adjusted EBITDA margin, net debt, net income excluding special items, and free cash flow. These are non-GAAP financial measures used by Cincinnati Bell management when evaluating results of operations and cash flow. Management believes these measures also provide users of the financial statements with additional and useful comparisons of current results of operations and cash flows with past and future periods. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as being more important than comparable GAAP measures. Detailed reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to comparable GAAP financial measures have been included in the tables distributed with this release and are available in the Investor Relations section of www.cincinnatibell.com.

(1)Adjusted EBITDA provides a useful measure of operational performance. The company defines Adjusted EBITDA as GAAP operating income plus depreciation, amortization, transaction-related compensation, restructuring charges, (gain) loss on sale or disposal of assets, transaction costs, curtailment gain, asset impairments, components of pension and other retirement plan costs (including interest costs, asset returns, and amortization of actuarial gains and losses), and other special items. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to comparable GAAP measures of profitability and may not be comparable with the measure as defined by other companies.

CyrusOne defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) as defined by U.S. GAAP before noncontrolling interests plus interest expense, income tax (benefit) expense, depreciation and amortization, non-cash compensation, transaction costs and transaction-related compensation, including acquisition pursuit costs, restructuring costs, loss on extinguishment of debt, asset impairments, (gain) loss on sale of real estate improvements, and other special items. Other companies may not calculate Adjusted EBITDA in the same manner. Accordingly, CyrusOne’s Adjusted EBITDA as presented may not be comparable to others. Detailed reconciliations of CyrusOne’s Adjusted EBITDA to the comparable GAAP financial measure are available in the Investor Relations section of www.cyrusone.com.

(2)Free cash flow provides a useful measure of operational performance, liquidity and financial health. The company defines free cash flow as cash provided by (used in) operating, financing and investing activities, adjusted for the issuance and repayment of debt, debt issuance costs, the repurchase of common stock, and the proceeds from the sale or the use of funds from the purchase of business operations, including transaction costs. Free cash flow should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss), operating income (loss), cash flow from operating activities, or the change in cash on the balance sheet and may not be comparable with free cash flow as defined by other companies. Although the company feels that there is no comparable GAAP measure for free cash flow, the attached financial information reconciles free cash flow to the net increase (decrease) in cash and cash equivalents.

(3)Net debt provides a useful measure of liquidity and financial health. The company defines net debt as the sum of the face amount of short-term and long-term debt and unamortized premium and/or discount, offset by cash and cash equivalents. Net debt should not be considered as an alternative to comparable GAAP measures of liquidity and may not be comparable with the measure as defined by other companies.

(4)Consolidated Results for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2013 includes CyrusOne’s results of operations from January 1, 2013 through January 23, 2013. On January 24, 2013, the Company successfully completed the initial public offering ("IPO") of CyrusOne and no longer consolidates its results, but accounts for CyrusOne as an equity method investment. Results referenced within the Consolidated Results section for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2013 exclude the operations of CyrusOne for the period January 1, 2013 through January 23, 2013, to effectively provide comparative results to 2014. Excluding CyrusOne results for this period is not consistent with GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to comparable GAAP measures of revenue, operating income, or profitability.

(5)Adjusted EBITDA margin provides a useful measure of operational performance. The company defines Adjusted EBITDA margin as Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue. Adjusted EBITDA margin should not be considered as an alternative to comparable GAAP measures of profitability and may not be comparable with the measure as defined by other companies.

Net income excluding special items in total and per share provides a useful measure of operating performance. Net income excluding special items should not be considered as an alternative to comparable GAAP measures of profitability and may not be comparable with net income excluding special items as defined by other companies.

* CyrusOne’s free cash flows for 2013 were comprised of cash
generated from operating activities of $4.0 million and cash used in
investing activities of $7.3 million.
 
** Results for 2013 only include CyrusOne’s results through January
23, 2013. Effective January 24, 2013, the completion date of
CyrusOne’s IPO, the company accounts for CyrusOne as an equity
method investment, and therefore does not consolidate the CyrusOne
results of operations in the total company or segment results.

 B                     Restructuring charges consist of lease abandonments, severance and

 D                     Curtailment gain resulted from elimination of future pension service

                       credits.
                        
 J                     Dilutive effect of common stock equivalents based on net income

 *                     Diluted (loss) earnings per common share have been calculated
                       independently for the results above. Therefore, the sum of the per
                       share amounts will not necessarily equal the per share results for
