NAPLES, Fla., Aug. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FTE Networks, Inc. (NYSE American: FTNW) ("FTE" or the "Company"), a leading provider of innovative technology-oriented solutions for smart platforms, network infrastructure and intelligent buildings, today reported preliminary financial results for the second quarter ending June 30, 2018. Revenue is expected to increase to approximately $87 million, representing a nearly 75% increase from the $50.7 million posted in Q2 of 2017. The Company expects to meet its annual guidance for 2018 in terms of revenue, adjusted EBITDA and buildings on net and continues to improve on its balance sheet by reducing its debt outstanding while increasing its cash on hand.
“We are pleased with our execution on several fronts during the second quarter,” said Michael Palleschi, Chief Executive Officer of FTE. “In fact, excluding one-time costs and other non-cash expenses, the Company would be profitable on a GAAP-basis. Both our infrastructure and technology segments continue to contribute to our success in a variety of ways. The infrastructure segment provides us with a solid backlog and steady cash flow, enabling us to improve our debt structure and giving us greater operational flexibility. The technology segment, led by our CrossLayer solution, continues to nurture and expand its pipeline which gives us confidence in our building on net goals for the current year. Overall, new business wins remain strong as we build on our excellent reputation and continue to execute for our clients. We look forward to sharing more details on our second quarter earnings call.”
