Revenue

On a reported basis, for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, Total Revenue
was $291.3 million, an increase of 2.0% on a sequential basis compared
to the quarter ended March 31, 2018, driven primarily by HSD RGU net
additions and increases in Video ARPU.

Total subscription revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, was
$269.8 million. Residential Subscription Revenue was $237.2 million, and
Business Services Subscription totaled $32.6 million for the quarter
ended June 30, 2018. Business Services Subscription Revenue, including
the impact of Acquisitions and Dispositions, increased $4.4 million, or
15.6%, compared with the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Other business services revenue totaled $6.8 million for the quarter
ended June 30, 2018, down $3.8 million compared to the quarter ended
June 30, 2017, primarily due to decreased revenue generated by network
construction activities associated with the Chicago network sale to
Verizon.

Other revenue totaled $14.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018,
down $12.2 million compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2017,
primarily due to the reclassification of franchise fees to residential
video subscription revenue.

attributable to a reduction in interest expense and lower income tax
expense. Adjusted Diluted Earnings per share for the quarter ended June

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the
meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and
Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. All
statements, other than statements of historical facts, included in this
release are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements
discuss our current expectations and projections relating to our
financial condition, results of operations, plans, objectives, future
performance and business. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees
of future performance and we caution you not to place undue reliance on
such statements. Forward-looking statements are generally identifiable
by the use of the words "may," "will," "should," "expect," "anticipate,"
"estimate," "believe," "intend," "project," "continue," or the negative
of these words, or other similar words or terms. The forward-looking
statements included in this release are made as of the date hereof. We
assume no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement,
even if new information becomes available in the future or if experience
or future changes make it clear that any projected results expressed or
implied in such statements will not be realized. If we do update one or
more forward-looking statements, no inference should be made that we
will make additional updates with respect to those or other
forward-looking statements. Actual results may differ materially from
those expected because of various risks and uncertainties, many of which
are beyond our control, including the wide range of competition we face
in our business; competitors that are larger and possess more resources;
dependence upon a business services strategy; conditions in the economy,
including potentially uncertain economic conditions; our ability to
secure new businesses as customers; demand for our bundled broadband
communications services may be lower than we expect; our ability to
respond to rapid technological change; increases in programming and
retransmission costs; a decline in advertising revenues; the effects of
regulatory changes in our business; our substantial level of
indebtedness; certain covenants in our debt documents; programming
exclusivity in favor of our competitors; inability to obtain necessary
hardware, software and operational support; strain on business and
resources from future acquisitions, or the inability to identify
suitable acquisitions; and other factors that are described from time to
time in our filings with the SEC. All forward-looking statements are
expressly qualified in their entirety by these cautionary statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Operating
Metrics

We have included certain non-GAAP financial measures in this release,
including Revenue Including Acquisitions and Dispositions, Residential
Subscription Revenue Including Acquisitions and Dispositions, Business
Services Subscription Revenue Including Acquisitions and Dispositions,
Adjusted EBITDA, Transaction Adjusted EBITDA, Transaction Adjusted
Capital Expenditures, and Adjusted Diluted EPS. The presentation of
these financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation
or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information
prepared and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting
principles in the United States of America ("GAAP").

We believe that these non-GAAP measures enhance an investor's
understanding of our financial performance. We believe that these
non-GAAP measures are useful financial metrics to assess our operating
performance from period to period by excluding certain items that we
believe are not representative of our core business. We believe that
these non-GAAP measures provide investors with useful information for
assessing the comparability between periods of our ability to generate
cash from operations sufficient to pay taxes, to service debt and to
undertake capital expenditures. We use these non-GAAP measures for
business planning purposes and in measuring our performance relative to
that of our competitors. We believe these non-GAAP measures are measures
commonly used by investors to evaluate our performance and that of our
competitors.

Revenue Including Acquisitions and Dispositions, Residential
Subscription Revenue Including Acquisitions and Dispositions, Business
Services Subscription Revenue Including Acquisitions and Dispositions,
and Transaction Adjusted Capital Expenditures give effect to certain
acquisitions and divestitures made by WOW! and are included herein
because they are key metrics used by management and our Board of
Directors to assess our financial performance. We believe that these
non-GAAP measures are appropriate measures of operating performance
because they are meaningful to investors by showing how certain
acquisitions and divestitures might have affected our historical
financial statements. The presentation of these measures is not made in
accordance with GAAP and our use of these terms herein varies from the
use of similar terms by other companies in our industry due to different
methods of calculation and therefore are not necessarily comparable.
These non-GAAP measures should not be considered as an alternative to
revenue, capital expenditures or any other performance measures derived
in accordance with GAAP as measures of operating performance.

Adjusted EBITDA is included herein because it is a key metric used by
management and our Board of Directors to assess our financial
performance. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is an appropriate measure
of operating performance because it eliminates the impact of expenses
that do not relate to business performance, and that the presentation of
this measure enhances an investor's understanding of our financial
performance. Transaction Adjusted EBITDA makes certain additional
adjustments to the historical financial information that WOW! believes
is meaningful to investors by showing how certain acquisitions and
divestitures might have affected WOW!'s historical financial statements.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined by WOW! as net income (loss) before net
interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (including
impairments), impairment losses on intangibles and goodwill, management
fees to related party, the write-up or write-off of any asset, loss on
early extinguishment of debt, integration and restructuring expenses and
all non-cash charges and expenses (including equity based compensation
expense) and certain other income and expenses. Transaction Adjusted
EBITDA represents Adjusted EBITDA after giving effect to the impact of
acquisitions and dispositions that were completed during the relevant
periods as if they occurred at the beginning of the period presented.
The presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and Transaction Adjusted EBITDA is
not made in accordance with GAAP and our use of the terms Adjusted
EBITDA and Transaction Adjusted EBITDA may vary from others in our
industry. Adjusted EBITDA and Transaction Adjusted EBITDA should not be
considered as an alternative to net income (loss), operating income or
any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP as
measures of operating performance, operating cash flows or liquidity.

Adjusted EBITDA and Transaction Adjusted EBITDA have important
limitations as analytical tools. For example, Adjusted EBITDA and
Transaction Adjusted EBITDA:

  • exclude certain tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash
    available to us;
  • do not reflect any cash capital expenditure requirements for the
    assets being depreciated and amortized that may have to be replaced in
    the future;
  • do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working
    capital needs; and
  • do not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash
    requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on
    our debt.

Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share (EPS) is included herein because it
is a key metric used by management and our Board of Directors to assess
our financial performance. Adjusted Diluted EPS is a non-GAAP financial
measure that eliminates the effect of management fees to related party,
loss on early extinguishment of debt, gain (loss) on sale of assets,
impairment losses on intangibles and goodwill, non-recurring
professional fees, M&A integration and restructuring expense, non-cash
stock compensation, and other (income) and expenses. We then add or
subtract an estimated incremental income tax effect applicable to those
items. We believe that this measurement is useful to investors as an
additional way to analyze the underlying trends in our business
consistently across the periods presented.

The presentation of Adjusted Diluted EPS is not made in accordance with
GAAP and our use of the term Adjusted Diluted EPS herein varies from the
use of similar terms by other companies in our industry due to different
methods of calculation and is not necessarily comparable. Adjusted
Diluted EPS should not be considered as an alternative to Diluted EPS or
any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP as
measures of operating performance.

See "Unaudited Reconciliations of GAAP Measures to Non-GAAP Measures"
and the accompanying tables below for a reconciliation of Adjusted
EBITDA to our net income (loss), which is the most directly comparable
GAAP financial measure and a reconciliation of Adjusted EPS to Diluted
Earnings Per Share, which is the most directly comparable GAAP financial
measure.

In addition, we use the following subscriber information in this release:

  • Homes Passed – We report homes passed as
    the number of serviceable addresses, such as single residence homes,
    apartments and condominium units, and businesses passed by our
    broadband network and listed in our database.
  • Subscribers – Because we deliver multiple
    services to our customers, we report Total Subscribers as the number
    of subscribers who receive at least one of our HSD, Video or Telephony
    services, without regard to which or how many services they subscribe.
    We define each of the individual HSD subscribers, Video subscribers
    and Telephony subscribers as a revenue generating unit ("RGU").

While we take appropriate steps to ensure subscriber information is
presented on a consistent and accurate basis at any given balance sheet
date, we periodically review our policies in light of the variability we
may encounter across our different markets due to the nature and pricing
of products and services and billing systems. Accordingly, we may from
time to time make appropriate adjustments to our subscriber information
based on such reviews.

Unaudited Transaction Adjusted Condensed
Consolidated Financial and Subscriber Information

The SEC requires that pro forma financial information be presented in a
registrant's periodic filings when events occur for which disclosure
would be material to investors, including significant business
combinations or the disposition of a significant portion of the
business. The significance of an acquired or disposed business is
determined based on the "significant subsidiary" tests specified in
Regulation S-X, Article 11, Rule 1-02(w). Although the Company has made
certain acquisitions and divestitures, such transactions do not meet the
"significant subsidiary" tests and, accordingly, the Company's
historical financial information as filed with the SEC does not contain
pro forma financial information relating to those transactions.

Nevertheless, we make certain adjustments in this release to the
historical financial and subscriber information of the Company as filed
with the SEC ("Transaction Adjusted") because we believe such
information would be meaningful to investors by showing how such
transactions might have affected the Company's historical financial
statements. The unaudited Transaction Adjusted financial and subscriber
information in this release has been prepared giving effect to the
divestiture of a portion of our Chicago Fiber Network in December 2017,
and our divestiture of the Lawrence, Kansas, system in 2017, as if such
transactions had been completed at the beginning of the respective
periods presented. The unaudited Transaction Adjusted financial and
subscriber information is for informational purposes only and does not
purport to represent what our results of operations, financial or
subscriber information would have been if such transactions had occurred
at any date, nor does such information purport to project the results of
operations for any future period.

The unaudited Transaction Adjusted condensed consolidated financial and
subscriber information in this release was prepared based on our books
and records for the respective periods presented for the Lawrence,
Kansas system and the portion of the Chicago Fiber Network that was
divested. Such historical unaudited financial and subscriber information
has been adjusted to give a Transaction Adjusted effect to events that
are directly attributable to such transactions, factually supportable
and expected to have a continuing impact on the results. The unaudited
Transaction Adjusted financial information herein does not reflect
non-recurring charges that have been incurred in connection with the
transaction including legal fees, broker fees and accounting fees.

The following table provides an unaudited reconciliation of our
residential subscription revenue to residential subscription revenue
including Acquisitions and Dispositions, business services subscription
revenue to business services subscription revenue including Acquisitions
and Dispositions, Total Revenue to Total Revenue including Acquisitions
and Dispositions, Adjusted EBITDA to Transaction Adjusted EBITDA and
Capital Expenditures to Transaction Adjusted Capital Expenditures for
