Non-GAAP Measures

In an effort to provide investors with additional information regarding
our financial results, we have provided certain non-GAAP financial
information, including Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Free Cash Flow and Net
Debt. Adjusted EBITDA eliminates the effects of period to period changes
in costs that are not directly attributable to the underlying
performance of the Company's business operations and is used by
Management and the Company's Board of Directors to evaluate current
operating financial performance, analyze and evaluate strategic and
operational decisions and better evaluate comparability between periods.
Adjusted Free Cash Flow is a non-GAAP liquidity measured used by
Management and the Company's Board of Directors to assess the Company's
ability to generate cash and plan for future operating and capital
actions. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Free Cash Flow are common measures
utilized by our peers (other telecommunications companies) and we
believe they provide useful information to investors and analysts about
the Company's operating results, financial condition and cash flows. Net
Debt provides Management and the Company's Board of Directors with a
measure of the Company's current leverage position. The definition of
these non-GAAP measures is provided on Schedules 4, 6 and 9 to this
press release. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Free Cash Flow should not be
considered a substitute for Net Income, Net Cash Provided by Operating
Activities and other measures of financial performance recorded in
accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of our non-GAAP measures to our
nearest GAAP measures can be found in the tables in this release and on
our website in the investment data section. Other companies may not
calculate non-GAAP measures in the same manner as Alaska Communications.
The Company does not provide reconciliations of guidance for Adjusted
EBITDA to Net Income, and Adjusted Free Cash Flow to Net Cash from
Operating Activities, in reliance on the unreasonable efforts exception
provided under Item 10(e)(1)(i)(B) of Regulation S-K. The Company does
not forecast certain items required to develop the comparable GAAP
financial measures. These items are charges and benefits for
uncollectible accounts, certain other non-cash expenses, unusual items
typically excluded from Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Free Cash Flow, and
changes in operating assets and liabilities (generally the most
significant of these items, representing cash outflows of $6.2 million
in the six-month period of 2017).

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes certain "forward-looking statements," as
that term is defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of

uncertainties and other factors, many of which are outside the Company's
control. Such factors include, without limitation, Federal and Alaska
Universal Service Fund changes including Rural Healthcare Program
funding limitations, adverse economic conditions, the effects of
competition in our markets, our relatively small size compared with our
competitors, the Company's ability to compete, manage, integrate,
market, maintain, and attract sufficient customers for its products and
services, adverse changes in labor matters, including workforce levels,
our ability to service our debt and refinance as required, labor
negotiations, including renegotiating our collective bargaining
agreement, employee benefit costs, our ability to control other
operating costs, disruption of our supplier's provisioning of critical
products or services, the impact of natural or man-made disasters,
changes in Company's relationships with large customers, unforeseen
changes in public policies, regulatory changes, changes in technology
and standards, our internal control over financial reporting, and
changes in accounting standards or policies, which could affect reported
financial results. For further information regarding risks and
uncertainties associated with the Company's business, please refer to

Non-GAAP Measures:

The Company provides certain non-GAAP financial information,
including Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Free Cash Flow and Net Debt.
Adjusted EBITDA eliminates the effects of period to period changes
in costs that are not directly attributable to the underlying
performance of the Company's business operations and is used by
Management and the Company's Board of Directors to evaluate
current operating financial performance, analyze and evaluate
strategic and operational decisions and better evaluate
comparability between periods. Adjusted Free Cash Flow is a
non-GAAP liquidity measure used by Management to assess the
Company's ability to generate cash and plan for future operating
and capital actions. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Free Cash Flow
are common measures utilized by our peers (other
telecommunications companies) and we believe they provide useful
information to investors and analysts about the Company's
operating results, financial condition and cash flows. Net Debt
provides Management and the Board of Directors with a measure of
the Company's current leverage position.

 
The Company does not provide reconciliations of guidance for
Adjusted EBITDA to Net Income, and Adjusted Free Cash Flow to Net
Cash Provided by Operating Activities, in reliance on the
unreasonable efforts exception provided under Item 10(e)(1)(i)(B) of
Regulation S-K. The Company does not forecast certain items required
to develop the comparable GAAP financial measures. These items are
charges and benefits for uncollectible accounts, certain other
non-cash expenses, unusual items typically excluded from Adjusted
EBITDA and Adjusted Free Cash Flow, and changes in operating assets
and liabilities (generally the most significant of these items,
representing cash outflows of $6.2 million in the six-month period
ended June 30, 2017).
 
Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Free Cash Flow are not GAAP measures
and should not be considered a substitute for net income, net cash
provided by operating activities, or net cash provided or used.
Adjusted EBITDA as computed above is not consistent with the
definition of Consolidated EBITDA referenced in our 2017 Senior
Credit Agreement and 2015 Senior Credit Agreements, and other
companies may not calculate Non-GAAP measures in the same manner we
do.
 
Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before interest,
loss on extinguishment of debt, depreciation and amortization, gain
or loss on asset purchases or disposals, income taxes, stock-based
compensation, pension adjustments, net loss attributable to
noncontrolling interest and expenses under the Company's long term
cash incentive plan ("LTCI"). LTCI expenses are considered part of
an interim compensation structure, which ended in 2016, to mitigate
the dilutive impact of additional share issuances for executive
compensation.

* Quarterly Adjusted Free Cash Flow fluctuates and should not be
viewed as an indicator of annual performance. Onetime events,
seasonality of capital spend and the timing of interest payments may
result in negative Adjusted Free Cash Flow in one or more quarters.
 

Non-GAAP Measures:

Adjusted Free Cash Flow is a non-GAAP liquidity measure and is
defined as Adjusted EBITDA, less recurring operating cash
requirements which include capital expenditures, cash income taxes
refunded or paid, cash interest paid, amortization of GCI capacity
revenue, and cash receipts and payments associated with the
purchase of the North Slope fiber network and establishment of our
joint venture with QHL. Amortization of deferred revenue
associated with our interconnection agreement with GCI is excluded
from Adjusted Free Cash Flow because no cash was received by the
Company in connection with this agreement. Amortization of all
other deferred revenue, including that associated with other IRU
capacity arrangements, is included in Adjusted Free Cash Flow
because cash was received by the Company, typically at contract
inception, and is being amortized to revenue over the term of the
relevant agreement.

 
See Schedule 3 for Net cash provided by operating activities, Net
cash used by investing activities, and Net cash used by financing
activities.
 
See Schedule 5 for the reconciliation of net cash provided by
operating activities to Adjusted Free Cash Flow.
