  • Our distribution networks may be subject to weather-related events that may damage our networks and adversely impact our ability to deliver promised services or increase costs related to such events.
  • Our success largely depends on our ability to retain and recruit key personnel, and any failure to do so could adversely affect our ability to manage our business.

  • Our business may suffer as a result of competitive pressures.
  • We may not be able to implement our business plan successfully if our operating costs are higher than we anticipate.
  • The dynamic nature of the wireless market may limit management’s ability to correctly identify causes of volatility in key operating performance measures.
  • We may experience a high rate of affiliate subscriber turnover, in our territory, which could adversely affect our future financial performance.
  • Our business could be adversely affected by customer concerns over radio frequency emissions, findings of product liability for health/safety risks from wireless devices and transmission equipment, as well as by changes to regulations/radio frequency emission standards.
  • The performance of our Wireless reporting segment may be materially adversely affected by any interruption in, or other adverse change to, Sprint’s business, liquidity or financial condition.
  • The costs associated with our ongoing participation in Sprint’s network upgrade and expansion plans may affect our operating results, liquidity and financial position.
  • Sprint may make business decisions that are not in our best interests, which may adversely affect our business and our relationships with subscribers in our territory, increase our expenses and decrease our revenues.

  • Our dependence on Sprint for services may limit our ability to forecast operating results.
  • We are subject to risks relating to Sprint’s provision of back-office services and to changes in Sprint's products, services, plans and programs.

  • Offering voice communications service may subject us to additional regulatory burdens, causing us to incur additional costs.
Management Discussion
  • Revenue decreased approximately $5.7 million, or 3.6%, during the three months ended March 31, 2020 compared with the three months ended March 31, 2019, primarily due to a decline of $8.5 million in the Wireless segment, partially offset by growth of $2.9 million and $0.7 million in the Broadband and Tower segments, respectively. The Wireless segment recognized $4.5 million in lower travel revenue in the first quarter of 2020 compared to the first quarter of 2019 due to the ongoing dispute with Sprint over resetting of the travel fee. Refer to the discussion of the results of operations for the Wireless, Broadband and Tower segments, included within this quarterly report, for additional information.
