Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • In this section, we discuss our overall results of operations and highlight special items that are not included in our segment results. In "Segment Results" we review the performance of our two reporting segments in more detail.
  • For years, we have experienced revenue declines, excluding the impact of acquisitions, primarily due to declines in voice and private line customers, switched access rates and minutes of use. More recently, we have experienced declines in revenue derived from the sale of certain of our other products and services and a reduction in government support payments, in particular the cessation of the CAF II program. To partially mitigate these revenue declines, we remain focused on efforts to, among other things:
  • •market our products and services to new customers.
