Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results Compared to Second Quarter 2021

Revenues increased $27.3 million, or 6.8%, to $429.1 million for the second quarter of 2022 due primarily to $25.2 million of additional revenues from the Acquired Operations as well as an increase in higher margin residential data and business services revenues, partially offset by the contribution of Clearwave operations to Clearwave Fiber that generated $5.6 million of revenues in the prior year quarter and decreases in residential video and residential voice revenues.

Operating expenses (excluding depreciation and amortization) were $118.4 million in the second quarter of 2022 and increased $6.0 million, or 5.4%, compared to the second quarter of 2021. The increase in operating expenses was primarily attributable to $6.7 million of additional expenses related to the Acquired Operations and higher labor and other compensation-related costs, partially offset by lower programming expenses as a result of video customer losses. Operating expenses as a percentage of revenues were 27.6% and 28.0% for the second quarter of 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $90.8 million and $88.0 million for the second quarter of 2022 and 2021, respectively. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily attributable to $1.1 million of additional expenses related to the Acquired Operations and increases in labor and other compensation-related costs, bad debt expense, marketing costs and professional fees, partially offset by lower acquisition-related costs and system conversion costs. Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenues were 21.2% and 21.9% for the second quarter of 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Depreciation and amortization expense was $88.4 million for the second quarter of 2022 and increased $3.5 million, or 4.1%, compared to the second quarter of 2021. The increase in depreciation and amortization expense was primarily due to $8.6 million of additional expenses from the Acquired Operations, partially offset by lower expenses resulting from the Clearwave Fiber Contribution. Depreciation and amortization expense as a percentage of revenues was 20.6% and 21.1% for the second quarter of 2022 and 2021, respectively.

The Company recognized $8.3 million in non-cash losses associated with the dispositions of our Tallahassee, Florida system and certain other non-core assets during the second quarter of 2022.

Other income, net, was $8.1 million for the second quarter of 2022 and consisted primarily of a $6.3 million non-cash gain on fair value adjustment associated with the call and put options to acquire the remaining equity interests in Mega Broadband Investments Holdings LLC (the "MBI Net Option") and interest and investment income. Other income, net, was $12.1 million for the second quarter of 2021 and consisted primarily of a $33.4 million non-cash gain on fair value adjustment associated with the Company's existing investment in Hargray upon the acquisition of Hargray and interest and investment income, partially offset by a $21.4 million non-cash loss on fair value adjustment associated with the MBI Net Option.

Income tax provision was $22.8 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to an income tax benefit of $8.6 million for the second quarter of 2021. The Company’s effective tax rate was 23.5% and -8.7% for the second quarter of 2022 and 2021, respectively. The prior year included a $35.4 million increase in income tax benefit from the reversal of a pre-existing deferred tax liability on the Company's investment in Hargray upon the acquisition of Hargray.

Net income was $69.2 million in the second quarter of 2022 compared to $106.2 million in the prior year quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA was $227.5 million (including $39.6 million from the Acquired Operations) and $213.2 million for the second quarter of 2022 and 2021, respectively, an increase of 6.7%. Capital expenditures for the second quarter of 2022 totaled $107.3 million (including $17.8 million from the Acquired Operations) compared to $89.3 million for the second quarter of 2021. Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures for the second quarter of 2022 was $120.2 million (including $21.9 million from the Acquired Operations) compared to $123.9 million in the prior year quarter, a decrease of 3.0%.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

At June 30, 2022, the Company had $280.0 million of cash and cash equivalents on hand compared to $388.8 million at December 31, 2021.

Additional Information Available on Website

The information in this press release should be read in conjunction with the condensed consolidated financial statements and notes thereto contained in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2022, which will be posted on the "SEC Filings" section of the Cable One Investor Relations website at ir.cableone.net when it is filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). Investors and others interested in more information about Cable One should consult the Company’s website, which is regularly updated with financial and other important information about the Company.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses certain measures that are not defined by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP") to evaluate various aspects of its business. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures and capital expenditures as a percentage of Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures and should be considered in addition to, not as superior to, or as a substitute for, net income, net profit margin, net cash provided by operating activities or capital expenditures as a percentage of net income reported in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures are reconciled to net income, Adjusted EBITDA margin is reconciled to net profit margin and capital expenditures as a percentage of Adjusted EBITDA is reconciled to capital expenditures as a percentage of net income. Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures is also reconciled to net cash provided by operating activities. These reconciliations are included in the "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Measures" tables within this press release.

"Adjusted EBITDA" is defined as net income plus interest expense, income tax provision (benefit), depreciation and amortization, equity-based compensation, (gain) loss on deferred compensation, acquisition-related costs, (gain) loss on asset sales and disposals, system conversion costs, rebranding costs, (gain) loss on sales of businesses, equity method investment (income) loss, other (income) expense and other unusual items, as provided in the "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Measures" tables within this press release. As such, it eliminates the significant non-cash depreciation and amortization expense that results from the capital-intensive nature of the Company’s business as well as other non-cash or special items and is unaffected by the Company’s capital structure or investment activities. This measure is limited in that it does not reflect the periodic costs of certain capitalized tangible and intangible assets used in generating revenues and the Company’s cash cost of debt financing. These costs are evaluated through other financial measures.

"Adjusted EBITDA margin" is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by total revenues.

"Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures," when used as a liquidity measure, is calculated as net cash provided by operating activities excluding the impact of capital expenditures, interest expense, income tax provision (benefit), changes in operating assets and liabilities, change in deferred income taxes and other unusual items, as provided in the "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Measures" tables within this press release.

"Capital expenditures as a percentage of Adjusted EBITDA" is defined as capital expenditures divided by Adjusted EBITDA.

The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures and capital expenditures as a percentage of Adjusted EBITDA to assess its performance, and it also uses Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures as an indicator of its ability to fund operations and make additional investments with internally generated funds. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA generally correlates to the measure used in the leverage ratio calculations under the Company’s credit agreement and the indenture governing the Company’s non-convertible senior unsecured notes to determine compliance with the covenants contained in the credit agreement and the ability to take certain actions under the indenture governing the non-convertible senior unsecured notes. Adjusted EBITDA and capital expenditures are also significant performance measures used by the Company in its incentive compensation programs. Adjusted EBITDA does not take into account cash used for mandatory debt service requirements or other non-discretionary expenditures, and thus does not represent residual funds available for discretionary uses.

The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and capital expenditures as a percentage of Adjusted EBITDA are useful to investors in evaluating the operating performance of the Company. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures is useful to investors as it shows the Company’s performance while taking into account cash outflows for capital expenditures and is one of several indicators of the Company’s ability to service debt, make investments and/or return capital to its stockholders.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures, capital expenditures as a percentage of Adjusted EBITDA and similar measures with similar titles are common measures used by investors, analysts and peers to compare performance in the Company’s industry, although the Company’s measures of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures and capital expenditures as a percentage of Adjusted EBITDA may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Note:

All totals, percentages and year-over-year changes are calculated using exact numbers. Minor differences may exist due to rounding.

(1)

Average monthly revenue per unit ("ARPU") values represent the applicable quarterly residential service revenues (excluding installation and activation fees) divided by the corresponding average of the number of PSUs at the beginning and end of each period, divided by three, except that for any PSUs added or subtracted as a result of an acquisition or divestiture occurring during the period, the associated ARPU values represent the applicable residential service revenues (excluding installation and activation fees) divided by the pro-rated average number of PSUs during such period.

(2)

ARPU values represent quarterly business services revenues divided by the average of the number of business customer relationships at the beginning and end of each period, divided by three, except that for any business customer relationships added or subtracted as a result of an acquisition or divestiture occurring during the period, the associated ARPU values represent business services revenues divided by the pro-rated average number of business customer relationships during such period.
