windstream holdings inc (WIN) Key Developments

Windstream Announces Nationwide Availability of its Enterprise-Class Unified Communications as a Service

Windstream announced the nationwide availability of its enterprise-class Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS). Windstream's UCaaS is a fully managed cloud-based solution, offered to enterprise and mid-sized businesses for a flat monthly rate. The UCaaS product suite is hosted in Windstream's secure data centers and leverages Windstream's high-quality Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) networking with Quality of Service (QoS) for optimized performance.

Windstream Wins $3 Million Contract

Windstream announced that it has been awarded a contract valued at $3 million by the Defense Information System Agency (DISA) to provide diverse fiber services to Fort Campbell and Dover Air Force Base. DISA's current fiber network will be expanded into Fort Campbell, home to the only Air Assault Division in the world and located between Hopkinsville, Ky., and Clarksville, Tenn., creating additional route diversity and redundancy. Dover Air Force Base, located just outside of Dover, Del., will benefit from the same expansion efforts. Augmenting the current network design will provide a faster network to both military bases. The company will install two half-10Gbps waves for fully diverse fiber paths into the facilities, tying those paths together to connect back to the company’s national fiber network. The custom-designed solution will allow the thousands of employees at both Fort Campbell and Dover AFB to consistently connect to a secure, reliable network, increasing productivity and efficiency.

Windstream Holdings Seeks Acquisitions

Bob Gunderman, Senior Vice President and Treasurer of Windstream Holdings, Inc. (NasdaqGS:WIN), said, “So we're not really encumbered, if you will, by any operational dependencies for prohibiting us from doing M&A. Really, now the sitting on the sidelines, if you want to call it that for us, it's more about being patient and looking for the right opportunities to meet our acquisition criteria. And just as a reminder, for us, what that includes is, because we are a high-dividend-paying investment story, being free cash flow accretive in the first year is very important. We are focused on maintaining and improving our leverage -- or improving our leverage, I should say -- so any transaction that we would look to do needs to minimally not hurt leverage, but we also look for ways to enhance leverage through acquisitions, and so that's an important filter. And then the other screening that we look at would be it's got to be complementary to our footprint, so if it's a fiber acquisition or a data center acquisition that we would look to do, it needs to be very complementary to our existing footprint and really have the consequence or the outcome of being a strategic enabler of our existing operations. The good news for us is that we have plenty of opportunity to grow organically. The market share that we have in many of our competitive markets is still quite low, and we feel very confident we have the ability to continue to grow our enterprise revenue and our consumer broadband revenue organically without the aid of acquisitions.”
