07:05 EDTFTR, TFrontier says AT&T deal to be accretive to FCF per share in the first year
The transaction is estimated to be accretive to Frontierís adjusted free cash flow per share in the first year. The transaction is estimated to improve Frontierís dividend payout ratio by more than 5 percentage points in the first year. The all-cash transaction means Frontier shareholders will receive the benefit of increased diversification of assets and operations without any dilution in ownership. Frontier will have greater scale to leverage its network, information technology, engineering, administrative services and procurement capabilities to realize cost synergies and savings of $200 million annually once integration is complete. Frontier will implement its proven local engagement community-oriented go-to-market strategy in Connecticut led by local General Managers and a State Leader. Connecticut customers will have the same products and services that they currently enjoy, including the U-verse suite of products. Frontier expects the transaction to close in the second half of 2014. Following the close of this transaction, Frontier will operate in 28 states. Connecticutís urban, suburban and rural markets will complement Frontierís diverse mix of markets. Frontier will welcome approximately 2,700 employees to the company; the majority are represented by the Communications Workers of America. Frontier already has more than 200 employees at its headquarters based in Stamford, Connecticut. A full conversion of AT&Tís Connecticut operations onto Frontierís existing systems and networks is planned at the time of close. Frontier has successfully completed numerous complex system and network migrations. Our most recent conversion covered operations across 14 states and was completed approximately one year ahead of schedule. Frontier will acquire approximately 415,000 data, 900,000 voice, and 180,000 video residential connections of AT&T in Connecticut, as well as AT&Tís local business connections and existing carrier wholesale relationships.
