SOURCE NII Holdings, Inc.

-- Net loss of 52,000 subscribers, resulting in an ending subscriber base of 9.4 million subscribers

-- Consolidated operating revenues of $970 million

-- Consolidated adjusted operating loss before depreciation and amortization (adjusted OIBDA) of $84 million

RESTON, Va., May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NII Holdings, Inc. [NASDAQ: NIHD] today announced its consolidated financial results for the first quarter of 2014. The Company reported a net loss of 52,000 subscribers for the quarter, bringing its quarter-end subscriber base to 9.4 million, a 4 percent decrease from a year ago. Financial results for the first quarter include consolidated operating revenues of $970 million, a 27 percent decrease compared to the first quarter of 2013; consolidated adjusted OIBDA loss, which excludes the impact of non-cash asset impairments, restructuring charges and other unusual items, of $84 million; and a consolidated operating loss of $239 million. For the first quarter 2014, the Company generated a net loss from continuing operations of $376 million, or $2.19 per basic share. Capital expenditures were $118 million for the period.

"Our focus for 2014 is to drive better operational and financial results by stabilizing our operations in Mexico and investing in subscriber growth in Brazil," said Steve Shindler, NII Holdings' chief executive officer. "Our 3G net subscriber additions in Brazil more than doubled this quarter from the fourth quarter of 2013, but were not enough to offset the continued subscriber losses in Mexico. We continue to believe that our focus on our core markets in Brazil and Mexico and our high quality networks, combined with aggressive rate plan offers and an increasing portfolio of smartphones, position us to attract customers and improve our results over the long term."

NII Holdings' consolidated average monthly service revenue per subscriber (ARPU) was $29 for the first quarter of 2014, down from $39 in the prior year. The Company also reported consolidated average monthly churn of 3.42 percent for the period, compared to 2.42 percent in the first quarter of 2013.  Consolidated cost per gross add (CPGA) was $290 for the first quarter 2014, a $13 increase from the year ago period.

The Company ended the first quarter with $5.9 billion in total debt and $1.7 billion in consolidated cash and short-term investments, resulting in $4.2 billion of net debt.

"Although our cash use is typically higher in the first half of the year, it was particularly high in the first quarter of 2014 due in part to the required prepayment of $135 million in annual spectrum fees in Mexico that have historically been due in the second quarter of the year. We also increased handset inventories by approximately $68 million, primarily in Mexico and Brazil, as we expanded our portfolio and prepared for the launch of iconic handsets in both markets," said Juan Figuereo NII Holdings executive vice president and chief financial officer. "With revenue generation falling short of our expectations and the need to continue to invest in subscriber growth, we are increasing the intensity of our focus on balancing investments with preserving liquidity."

NON-GAAP RECONCILIATIONS
FOR THE THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2014 AND 2013 
(UNAUDITED)

Consolidated OIBDA and Consolidated Adjusted OIBDA

Consolidated operating income before depreciation and amortization, or OIBDA, represents operating income before depreciation and amortization expense. Consolidated adjusted operating income before depreciation and amortization, or adjusted OIBDA, represents consolidated operating income before depreciation expense, amortization expense, material non-cash asset impairments, severance costs associated with publicly announced restructuring plans and other material non-recurring or unusual charges. Consolidated OIBDA and consolidated adjusted OIBDA are not measurements under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, may not be similar to consolidated OIBDA and consolidated adjusted OIBDA measures of other companies and should be considered in addition to, but not as substitutes for, the information contained in our statements of operations. We believe that consolidated OIBDA and consolidated adjusted OIBDA provide useful information to investors because they are indicators of our operating performance, especially in a capital intensive industry such as ours, since they exclude items that are not directly attributable to ongoing business operations. Consolidated OIBDA and consolidated adjusted OIBDA can be reconciled to our consolidated statements of operations as follows (in millions):

Average Monthly Revenue Per Handset/Unit in Service (ARPU)

Average monthly revenue per subscriber unit in service, or ARPU, is an industry term that measures service revenues, which we refer to as subscriber revenues, per period from our customers divided by the weighted average number of subscriber units in commercial service during that period.  ARPU is not a measurement under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, may not be similar to ARPU measures of other companies and should be considered in addition, but not as a substitute for, the information contained in our statements of operations.  We believe that ARPU provides useful information concerning the appeal of our rate plans and service offerings and our performance in attracting and retaining high value customers.  Other revenue includes revenues for such services as roaming, handset maintenance, cancellation fees, analog and other.  ARPU can be calculated and reconciled to our consolidated statement of operations as follows (in millions, except ARPU):

Cost per Gross Add (CPGA)

Cost per gross add, or CPGA, is an industry term that is calculated by dividing our selling, marketing and handset and accessory subsidy costs, excluding costs unrelated to initial customer acquisition, by our new subscribers during the period, or gross adds.  CPGA is not a measurement under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, may not be similar to CPGA measures of other companies and should be considered in addition, but not as a substitute for, the information contained in our statements of operations.  We believe CPGA is a measure of the relative cost of customer acquisition.  CPGA can be calculated and reconciled to our consolidated statements of operations as follows (in millions, except CPGA):

Net Debt

Net debt represents total debt less cash, cash equivalents, short-term and long-term investments and restricted cash. Net debt is not a measurement under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, may not be similar to net debt measures of other companies and should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information contained in our balance sheets. We believe that net debt provides useful information concerning our liquidity and leverage. Net debt as of March 31, 2014 can be calculated as follows (in millions):

Impact of Foreign Currency Fluctuations

The following table shows the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates on certain financial measures for the three months ended March 31, 2014 compared to the same period in 2013 by (i) adjusting the relevant measures for three months ended March 31, 2013 to levels that would have resulted if the average foreign currency exchange rates for the three months ended March 31, 2013 were the same as the average foreign currency exchange rates that were in effect for the three months ended March 31, 2014; and (ii) comparing the actual and adjusted financial measures for the three months ended March 31, 2013 to the similar financial measures for the three months ended March 31, 2014 to show the percentage change in those measures before and after taking those adjustments into account. The amounts reflected in the following table for operating income before depreciation and amortization on a consolidated basis and segment earnings for Nextel Brazil, Nextel Mexico and Nextel Argentina, before the adjustments for changes in foreign currency exchange rates, are based on the calculations contained elsewhere in these non-GAAP reconciliations for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013. The average foreign currency exchange rates for each of the relevant currencies during each of the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013 are included in the notes to the table below. The information reflected in the following table is not a measurement under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information contained in our statements of operations. We believe that these calculations provide useful information concerning our relative performance for the three months ended March 31, 2014 compared to the same period in 2013 by removing the impact of the significant difference in the average foreign currency exchange rates in effect for the period.

The "1Q 2013 Normalized" amount reflects the impact of applying the average foreign currency exchange rates for the three months ended March 31, 2014 to the operating revenues earned in foreign currencies and to the other components of each of the actual financial measures shown above for the three months ended March 31, 2013, other than certain components of those measures consisting of U.S. dollar-based operating expenses, which were not adjusted. The amounts included under the column "1Q 2013 Adjustment" reflect the amount determined by subtracting the "1Q 2013 Normalized" amount calculated as described in the preceding sentence from the "1Q 2013 Actual" amount and reflects the impact of the year-over-year change in the average foreign currency exchange rates on each of the financial measures for the three months ended March 31, 2013. The average foreign currency exchange rates for each of the relevant currencies during the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013 for purposes of these calculations were as follows:
