Bell Aliant Inc. Reports Unaudited Earnings Results for the Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2014

Bell Aliant Inc. reported unaudited earnings results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2014. For the third quarter, the company reported net earnings of $59 million in the third quarter of 2014, down $22 million from the same quarter in 2013, driven by an increase in financial advisory, professional and consulting fees, and other costs associated with the Privatization transactions. Earnings per share and adjusted earnings per share for the third quarter of 2014 were $0.26 and $0.44 respectively, compared to $0.35 and $0.42 in the third quarter of 2013. The company's revenues increased 0.4% in third quarter of 2014 to $699 million from $696 million last year, as growth in Internet, TV, other data and wireless revenues exceeded the declines in local, long distance and other revenues. Despite higher year-over-year operating revenues, the company's Adjusted EBITDA decreased 2.2% this quarter to $317 million from $324 million in third quarter of 2013, due to higher operating costs related to growth of its FibreOP services and customer base. Negative free cash flow was $53 million against $77 million a year ago.
