13:41 EDTVZEarnings Watch: Verizon shares up marginally since Q4 results
Verizon Communications (VZ) is expected to report first quarter earnings before the market open on Tuesday, April 21, with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET. Verizon is a holding company providing communications, information and entertainment. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 95c on revenue of $32.27B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 89c-$1.00 on revenue of $31.74B-$32.97B. LAST QUARTER: Verizon reported fourth quarter adjusted EPS of 71c against estimates for 72c on revenue of $33.19B against estimates for $32.69B. For Q4 in Wireless, the company reported 2.1M net retail connections; 2.0M net retail postpaid connections, including net additions of 672,000 postpaid phones; retail postpaid churn of 1.14%; 108.2M total retail connections and 102.1M total retail postpaid connections. In Wireline, it reported 4.1% year-over-year quarterly increase in consumer revenues. Verizon reported Q4 retail postpaid ARPA, or average revenue per account, increased 1.0% over Q4 of 2013 to $158.82 per month, and 3.9% over the full year. Verizon reported Q4 FiOS consumer revenue growth of 11.1%; 6.6M FiOS Internet subscribers, with 145K net additions; 5.6M FiOS Video subscribers, with 116K net additions. For 2015, Verizon expects consolidated revenue growth of at least 4%. It sees sustained profitability with a consolidated adjusted EBITDA margin at a level consistent with full-year 2014 performance. It also expects strong free cash flow generation with consolidated capital spending of $17.5B-$18.0B. On February 5, Frontier Communications (FTR) announced a definitive agreement with Verizon under which Frontier will acquire Verizon’s wireline operations that provide services to residential, commercial and wholesale customers in California, Florida and Texas, for $10.54B in cash. On the same day, Verizon announced a $5B accelerated share-repurchase program and agreed to lease the rights to over 11,300 of its company-owned wireless towers to American Tower (AMT), which will also purchase approximately 165 Verizon towers, for a total upfront payment of approximately $5B. American Tower will have exclusive rights to lease and operate over 11,300 Verizon cell towers, a significant majority of the towers the company currently owns. In addition, Verizon will sell approximately 165 towers outright. On March 10 at the Deutsche Bank Media, Internet & Telecom Conference, CFO Fran Shammo said there was “not much change” in the competitive environment since Q4-end, Q1 volume should return to "more normal levels," and Q1 churn is likely to be elevated from year ago, but not "something that is going to be concerning." PRICE ACTION: Verizon’s shares are up marginally since the company's Q4 report. Over the past twelve months, they are up about 3.3%. In afternoon trading ahead of Tuesday's Q1 report, Verizon’s shares are up 0.5%.
