Alaska Communications Systems Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2012 Results

- Full Year Revenue of $367.8 million, exceeded guidance -

- Full Year EBITDA of $121.8 million, exceeded guidance -

- Full year Free Cash Flow of $33.0 million, at high end of guidance -

- Full year Business and Wholesale Revenue increased 8.0% -

- De-levering continues with $19.5 million of repayments of long term debt for the year -

ANCHORAGE, Alaska--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Alaska Communications Systems Group, Inc. ("ACS") (NASDAQ:ALSK) today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012.

"We are pleased with our performance this year. We generated strong growth in business and wholesale revenues. Ending the year at the high end of guidance for free cash flow, with our debt balances declining for the first time in three years, is also an indication of our progress.

"Looking ahead, we expect continued top line growth in the business and wholesale segment, solid free cash flow performance and significant deleveraging with the successful closing of the Alaska Wireless Network ("AWN") transaction. Our investments in sales and service, product and network, and process improvements provide the platform for future growth. The AWN transaction is a defining transaction for Alaska Communications as it de-risks our wireless business, provides a predictable path for further deleveraging and builds shareholder value over time. These are all elements of our business plan in action, giving us confidence in our future.

"Growing demand for our core broadband product, the trust our customers have in the reliability of our products and network and the local service provided by our employees will drive our continued performance to our business plan," said Anand Vadapalli, president and CEO of Alaska Communications.

Financial Highlights:
Fourth Quarter 2012 Compared to Fourth Quarter 2011

    Revenues of $95.1 million increased by $7.6 million, or 8.7%, from $87.5 million in the prior year.
        Business and wholesale revenue increased by $3.7 million, or 14.0%. We benefited from a non-recurring equipment sale in the fourth quarter 2012 of $1.4 million.
        Consumer revenue increased by $0.3 million, or 2.8%.
        Wireless revenue increased by $4.9 million, or 16.2%.

        Cost of services and sales increased by $1.9 million, or 5.6%, which was impacted by a non-recurring equipment sale and a $0.5 increase in wireless equipment and device costs.
        Selling, general & administrative, excluding AWN transaction related costs of $1.1 million compared to $0.5 million in the prior year, increased by $2.8 million, or 12.1%, resulting primarily from increased sales and customer service costs.
