– NTELOS Holdings Corp. (“the Company,” NASDAQ: NTLS), a leading regional provider of nationwide wireless voice and data communications services with operations in Virginia, West Virginia, and portions of Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Ohio, Maryland and North Carolina, today announced operating results for its fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2011.

Fourth Quarter Highlights

 

 

Sprint wholesale revenues for the fourth quarter 2011 increased almost 30% to $37.9 million compared to $29.2 million for the same period in 2010;

 

 

Subscriber churn for the fourth quarter 2011 improved to 3.4% compared to 3.5% for the same period in 2010;

 

 

Net subscriber losses for the fourth quarter 2011 were (500) compared to (1,300) for the same period in 2010; and

 

 

Data ARPU for the fourth quarter 2011 increased 28% to $17.36 from $13.56 for the same period of 2010.

“Fourth quarter results reflect positively on the continued strength of our Sprint wholesale business, combined with quantifiable improvements in our retail operations. I am extremely encouraged by the increased competitiveness of our retail distribution model, which experienced favorable growth of prepay subscribers and a significant reduction in postpaid subscriber net losses during the quarter, especially when compared to the past few quarters,” noted James A. Hyde, CEO of NTELOS Holdings Corp.

Highlights from Continued Operations

 

   

Operating revenues for the fourth quarter 2011 were $106.0 million, up 3% from the fourth quarter 2010. Operating revenues for the year 2011 were $422.6 million, up 4% compared to the year 2010. The increase in operating revenues in both periods was primarily due to an increase in Sprint wholesale revenues offsetting a decline in retail revenues.

 

   

Retail revenues, which includes subscriber and equipment revenues, were $66.3 million for the fourth quarter 2011 compared to $71.5 million for fourth quarter 2010. Retail revenues for the year 2011 were $278.1 million compared to $289.3 million for the year 2010.
