The company reported consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015.

Consolidated EBITDA was CAD 140.4 million compared to CAD 147.6 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was CAD 36.5 million compared to CAD 58.3 million a year ago. Net income for the period was CAD 26.7 million or CAD 0.34 per share compared to CAD 41.9 million or CAD 0.54 per share a year ago. Earnings per share was down CAD 0.20, with CAD 0.12 due to the SR&ED amortization credits recorded in first quarter of 2014 and the remainder due to the restructuring costs and the decline in Allstream EBITDA. Earnings per share were impacted by a number of onetime events, both this year and last year. Free cash flow for the period was CAD 46.7 million compared to CAD 49.0 million a year ago. Capital expenditures were CAD 60.5 million compared to CAD 43.6 million a year ago. Net income and EPS were down due largely to the increase in depreciation and amortization expense resulting from one-time SR&ED ITCs recorded in first quarter of 2014, along with the decline in Allstream EBITDA, partly offset by lower income tax expense. The company provided earnings guidance for the year 2015. MTS EBITDA expects to be higher of 2014 results of CAD 466.4 million.
