Guidance for capital expenditures is revised as follows: Capital expenditures of approximately $40 million, revised to between $40 million to $45 million. The company’s guidance for capital spending has increased to reflect a two year project, which commenced in the second half of 2014, to build fiber facilities on behalf of a customer. The customer is funding the project during the period of the build and in 2014 cash payments will offset this higher capital spending. Accordingly, the company’s capital spending guidance has increased but the company's free cash flow guidance is unchanged. The company anticipates that this multi-year project will be accretive to free cash flow in 2015.
