ANCHORAGE, Alaska--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 6, 2021--Alaska Communications Systems Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALSK) today reported financial results for the first quarter of 2021.

“We are pleased with our first quarter 2021 results, showing revenue growth year over year in business and wholesale, consumer and regulatory. Total broadband revenues increased 4.4% year over year, and growth revenues continued to outpace declining legacy revenues. Our fiber footprint and market opportunities continue to increase. In April, we completed our Oregon-based prefunded fiber project, connecting our landing station on the Oregon coast to the main Pacific Northwest fiber corridor. We are currently in the final testing phase of this project. Additionally, we continue to see success in the natural resource sector, with a significant new customer win in the mining industry in Alaska.

“With the approval from our shareholders of the merger agreement, we continue to move forward with the transaction with ATN International, Inc. We anticipate receiving the remaining regulatory approvals over the coming months and expect to close the transaction mid-year,” said Bill Bishop, president & CEO.

Laurie Butcher, Alaska Communications chief financial officer, said, “Our first quarter results are in line with our business plan, showing year over year revenue growth in all three of our business lines. Our total revenue showed growth of 4.1%, driven largely by broadband. Net income is lower year over year due in part to the transaction costs incurred in the first quarter of this year.
