16:29 EDTFRPFairPoint backs FY15 Unlevered Free Cash Flow guidance of $115M-$125M
For fiscal 2015, FairPoint expects that it will no longer be eligible to receive its current high cost voice support of $39.3M, subject to certain transition rules. The net impact of no longer receiving this revenue while accepting $37.4M in CAF II funding as well as $7.4M in transitional support will be offset by incremental spending associated with CAF Phase II in 2015. As a result, the company is maintaining its guidance for Unlevered Free Cash Flow of $115M-$125M for the year, adjusted for Estimated Avoided Costs in the first quarter, and, despite a higher capital plan following acceptance of CAF II funding, continues to expect its annual capital expenditures to be less than $120M in 2015. Unlevered Free Cash Flow refers to Adjusted EBITDA minus capital expenditures, pension contributions and cash payments for other post-employment benefits.
