Verizon Sees Revenue and EPS Growth

NEW YORK Jan. 25, 2011 Lowell McAdam

McAdam said: "Verizon’s superior asset base gives us a solid foothold in growth markets for broadband, wireless data, video and cloud services — businesses that are gaining scale and momentum, as we saw in the second half of 2010.  Verizon has an unmatched strategic position in the growth markets of the future.  Our focus is on leveraging these superior assets to deliver superior value to customers and investors."

McAdam described a transformational change in Verizon’s revenue and growth profile.  Over the past several years, he noted, Verizon has invested in next-generation broadband technologies such as FiOS and wireless LTE; it has acquired assets such as Alltel and MCI to extend its reach in global markets and add scale; and it has divested lower-growth, non-strategic assets.  As a result, 72 percent of Verizon’s total revenues in 2010 were generated by wireless, FiOS and strategic business services, compared with 48 percent in 2006.

Revenue, Capital Investment and Earnings Expectations

Fran Shammo

With the introduction of the iPhone and LTE devices, Verizon said it sees smartphone penetration rates increasing from a current 26 percent to more than 50 percent by the end of 2011.

Shammo said Verizon Wireless margins have demonstrated years of sustained excellent performance, and improvements in wireline margins are gaining momentum.  He added that the company plans to maintain a disciplined program for capital investments and driving cost efficiencies.

$16.5 billion

Shammo said the company expects to maintain strong cash flow with continued gains in earnings per share (EPS) in 2011, including the impact on wireless margins from expected gains in market share from iPhone sales.

In addition, he said, continued strong cash flow will enable management to continue to recommend to Verizon’s Board of Directors annual dividend increases.
