Alaska Communications Reports Third Quarter 2018 Results

ANCHORAGE, Alaska--(BUSINESS WIRE)--November 5, 2018--Alaska Communications Systems Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALSK) today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2018.

“Our results for the quarter and year to date are strong, reflecting solid execution to our plan. Our performance builds on a long-term track record of revenue growth and cost management supporting consistent Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Free Cash Flow performance. Looking forward, we see growing opportunities in Carrier & Federal, Education, and Oil & Gas, with the added tailwinds of an improving Alaska economy.

“Historically our capital allocation strategies have prioritized deleveraging, establishing the foundation for future growth. We continue to see material opportunities in the market, giving us great confidence in investing for growth. At the same time, given the strength of our balance sheet, we are committed to appropriately considering returns to our shareholders as part of our organic business plan, while we continue to emphasize strategic actions addressing scale and geographic diversification to amplify and accelerate value creation,” said Anand Vadapalli, president and CEO of Alaska Communications.
