PHILADELPHIA, PA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/11/14 -- Alteva, Inc. ("Alteva" or the "Company") (NYSE MKT: ALTV), a premier provider of hosted Unified-Communications-as-a-Service ("UCaaS"), today announced selected financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results Highlights

  • For the second quarter of 2014, UC revenues increased by 8% to $4.2 million from $3.9 million for the second quarter of 2013, which included the results of the Syracuse, NY operations that were sold in September 2013; excluding the Syracuse operations, UC revenues increased 27% for the second quarter of 2014 as compared to the same period in 2013;
  • Gross profit margin increased to 62% in the second quarter of 2014 from 57% for the same period in 2013;
  • Alteva recorded a $49.8 million gain on the sale of its interest in the O-P partnership;
  • For the second quarter of 2014, the Company achieved Adjusted EBITDA* of $50.2 million, an improvement from $2.1 million from the same period in 2013; Adjusted EBITDA* included $50.3 million and $3.25 million of income from the Company's O-P investment for the second quarters of 2014 and 2013, respectively;
  • The Company narrowed its operating loss for the second quarter of 2014 to $(1.4) million, as compared to $(3.0) million for the same period in 2013;
  • The Company had net income of $31.5 million, or $5.19 per share, for the second quarter of 2014, as compared to a net loss of $(9,000), or $0.00 per share, for the same period in 2013;
  • There were over 47,000 users on Alteva's hosted platform at the end of the second quarter of 2014, which represented an increase of 17% of the installed base compared to the end of the second quarter of 2013; excluding the seats associated with the divested Syracuse operations, users on Alteva's hosted platform increased 28%.

O-P Partnership

On April 30, 2014, the Company exercised the put option to sell its interest in the Orange County-Poughkeepsie Limited Partnership (the "O-P"). The gross proceeds of $50 million, which the Company received on April 30, 2014, will be used to pay taxes on the related gain, repay outstanding senior debt, fund working capital needs and support growth initiatives, including supporting Alteva's current customers and deploying solutions for new customers. After April 30, 2014, the Company will no longer have any interest in the O-P and will no longer receive any income from the O-P.

Second Quarter 2014 Results

Revenues were $7.6 million in the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 2% from $7.4 million for the same period in 2013. Revenues increased 11% year-over-year excluding the revenue from the Syracuse operations that were sold in September 2013.

UC revenues were $4.2 million in the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 8% from $3.9 million for the same period in 2013. UC revenues in the second quarter of 2014 increased 27% on a year-over-year basis excluding the revenue from the Syracuse operations, which were sold in September 2013. As a percentage of consolidated revenue, the UC segment contributed approximately 56% of revenues in the second quarter of 2014 as compared with 53% for the same period in 2013. The increase in UC revenues was attributable to the addition of new clients and the increase in services to existing clients. Approximately 91% of second quarter UC revenues were from licenses and services which are expected to be recurring in nature, with the balance of revenues derived from equipment sales that were primarily related to new customer implementations.

Telephone revenues were $3.4 million in the second quarter of 2014, as compared with $3.5 million for the same period in 2013. The Telephone segment contributed approximately 44% of revenues in the second quarter 2014 as compared with 47% for the same period of 2013. Telephone revenues were slightly lower year-over-year as a result of continued access line losses. These decreases were partially offset by an increase in access line rates earlier in the year and modest growth in broadband Internet services revenues.

Gross profit increased by 12% to $4.7 million in the second quarter of 2014 from $4.2 million for the same period in 2013. Gross profit as a percentage of revenues was 62% in the second quarter 2014, as compared with 57% for the same period in 2013. The improvement in gross profit primarily reflects the increase in revenues contributed by the UC segment, the Company's ability to leverage its existing infrastructure, and the impact of the cost reduction initiatives. The cost reduction initiatives included the sale of the Syracuse operations and the previously disclosed workforce reduction in the Telephone segment.

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses in the second quarter of 2014 were $5.3 million, as compared with $6.2 million for the same period in 2013. The $0.9 million, or 16%, decrease in SG&A expenses was primarily associated with a reduction in wages, including the impact from the restructuring of the Telephone segment in the second quarter of 2013, the sale of the Syracuse operations, severance charges in the second quarter of 2013, and other expense management initiatives implemented throughout the year.

Total other income for the second quarters of 2014 and 2013 was $50.3 million and $3.1 million, respectively. Other income included the income from the Company's equity investment in the O-P partnership in the second quarters of 2014 and 2013 of $50.3 million and $3.25 million, respectively. In 2013, the Company received guaranteed annual distributions of $13 million. In 2014, in accordance with the O-P agreement, the guaranteed distribution levels stopped and the Company received income from the equity investment only for its ownership share of 8.108% of the O-P's net income. The $50.3 million of income from the O-P partnership in the second quarter of 2014 included a $49.8 million gain on the sale of the Company's interest in the O-P partnership on April 30, 2014.

For the second quarter of 2014, the Company had income tax expense of $17.3 million, or 35% of income before income taxes, as compared to an income tax expense of $0.2 million, or 106% of income before income taxes, for the second quarter of 2013. The estimated effective tax rate for each period includes projections of tax expense on the expected change in our valuation allowance for deferred tax assets.

For the second quarter of 2014, the Company's net income was $31.5 million, as compared to a net loss of $(9,000) for the same period of 2013.

Basic and diluted net income per share was $5.19 for the second quarter of 2014, as compared with basic and diluted net loss per share of $0.00 in the same period of 2013.

Blockchain. A day doesn’t seem to go by without seeing articles and discussions about the technology. According to PwC executive Seamus Cushley, approximately $1.4B has been invested in blockchain just last year. In Gartner’s recent hype cycle for emerging technologies, blockchain is approaching the peak. It is considered by Gartner as one of the ‘Key platform-enabling technologies to track.’ While there is a lot of ‘hype vs reality’ discussions going on, there is no arguing that blockchain is b...
As Marc Andreessen says software is eating the world. Everything is rapidly moving toward being software-defined – from our phones and cars through our washing machines to the datacenter. However, there are larger challenges when implementing software defined on a larger scale - when building software defined infrastructure. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Boyan Ivanov, CEO of StorPool, provided some practical insights on what, how and why when implementing "software-defined" in the datacent...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Leading companies, from the Global Fortune 500 to the smallest companies, are adopting hybrid cloud as the path to business advantage.

The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud host...

The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
