ATN’s CEO Brad Martin and CFO Carlos Doglioli to Update Shareholders Today at the Sidoti Spring 2024 Small Cap Virtual Investor Conference

BEVERLY, Mass., March 14, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ATN International, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATNI), a leading provider of digital infrastructure and communications services, invites investors to log on as Brad Martin and Carlos Doglioli lead a webcasted presentation and participate in a fireside chat at the Sidoti Spring 2024 Small Cap Virtual Conference today at 9:15am ET. Management will highlight the Company’s progress executing its three-year strategy to invest in growth and drive sustainable shareholder value-creation, as well as provide further details on the Company’s minimal ACP exposure. The Company also will host one-on-one meetings with investors at the conference.

Key Takeaways:

  • ATN reiterates its full-year 2024 outlook
  • ATN remains well positioned to increase subscribers, revenues and Adjusted EBITDA1 as the Company leverages the investments made through its Glass & Steel™ and First-to-Fiber growth strategies
  • The Company’s exposure to the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is not expected to impact previously provided revenue and Adjusted EBITDA guidance

ATN remains on track to deliver on its previously stated full-year 2024 guidance.

Consistent with its previously issued 2024 outlook, ATN continues to expect:

  • Revenue for full year 2024 to be in the range of $750 to $770 million, excluding construction revenue;
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 for full year 2024 to be in the range of $200 to $208 million;
  • Capital expenditures for full year 2024 to be in the range of $110 to $120 million (net of reimbursements); and
  • Net Debt Ratio2 to be in the range of 2.25x to 2.40x exiting 2024.

For the Company’s full year 2024 outlook for Adjusted EBITDA, the Company is not able to provide without unreasonable effort the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, or reconciliations to such GAAP financial measures, on a forward-looking basis. Please see “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below for a full description of items excluded from the Company’s expected Adjusted EBITDA.

ATN’s three-year strategic investment plan (FY2022 to FY2024) anchored by its Glass & Steel™ and First-to-Fiber growth strategies are driving growth across the enterprise.

  • Through year-end 2024, ATN is expected to have invested a total of nearly $450 million upgrading and expanding its network, in line with its three-year strategic investment growth plan, which is set to conclude at the end of 2024.
  • Since launching its strategy at the start of 2022, ATN has expanded its fiber network reach by nearly 30% through the end of 2023.
  • Over the same period, ATN has increased high-speed broadband subscribers by 39%, and nearly doubled homes passed by high-speed broadband.

ATN has limited exposure to the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) and has mitigation measures in place to offset any potential impacts to the Company.

  • In total, ATN has approximately 15,000 subscribers that participate in the ACP, many of which were existing subscribers.
  • ATN is actively working with customers to mitigate the impact of any potential disruptions to the ACP.
  • Discontinuation of the ACP is not expected to impact the Company’s 2024 outlook.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Definition of Terms

In addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release also contains non-GAAP financial measures. Specifically, the Company has included EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Net Debt, and Net Debt Ratio in this release and the tables included herein.

EBITDA is defined as Operating income (loss) before depreciation and amortization expense.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as Operating income (loss) before depreciation and amortization expense, transaction-related charges, restructuring expenses, one-time impairment or special charges, and the gain (loss) on disposition of assets and contingent consideration. In order to more closely align with similar calculations presented by companies in its industry, beginning in the first quarter of 2023, the Company excluded non-cash stock-based compensation in its adjustment to derive Adjusted EBITDA. Prior periods have been restated to conform to this definition change.

Net Debt is defined as total debt less cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash.

Net Debt Ratio is defined as Net Debt divided by the trailing four quarters’ ended total Adjusted EBITDA at the measurement date.

The Company believes that the inclusion of these non-GAAP financial measures helps investors gain a meaningful understanding of the Company's core operating results and enhances the usefulness of comparing such performance with prior periods. Management uses these non-GAAP measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, as the basis for measuring the Company’s core operating performance and comparing such performance to that of prior periods. The non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release are not meant to be considered superior to or a substitute for results of operations prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are set forth in the text of, and the accompanying tables to, this press release. While non-GAAP financial measures are an important tool for financial and operational decision-making and for evaluating the Company’s own operating results over different periods of time, the Company urges investors to review the reconciliation of these financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures included below, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate its business.
