ZAYO GROUP HOLDINGS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

(in millions, except share and per share data)

 

 

(1) BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

Business

Zayo Group Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation, was formed on November 13, 2007, and is the parent company of a number of subsidiaries engaged in bandwidth infrastructure provision and services. Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. and its subsidiaries are collectively referred to as “Zayo Group Holdings” or the “Company.” The Company’s primary operating subsidiary is Zayo Group, LLC (“ZGL”). Headquartered in Boulder, Colorado, the Company operates bandwidth infrastructure assets, including fiber networks and datacenters, in the United States and Europe to offer:

Physical infrastructure, including dark fiber, mobile infrastructure and colocation services.

Lit services, including wavelengths, Ethernet, IP, and SONET services.

Other services, provided by Zayo Professional Services and Zayo France.

On October 22, 2014, the Company completed an initial public offering for shares of its common stock, which were listed on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) under the ticker symbol “ZAYO”. Prior to its initial public offering, Zayo Group Holdings was wholly owned by Communications Infrastructure Investments, LLC ("CII").  See Note 14 - Subsequent Events.

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include all the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes are unaudited and have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) for interim financial reporting and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) for quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, and do not include all of the note disclosures required by GAAP for complete financial statements. These condensed consolidated financial statements should, therefore, be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended June 30, 2014 included in the Company’s final prospectus filed with the SEC on October 17, 2014. In the opinion of management, all adjustments considered necessary for fair presentation of financial position, results of operations and cash flows of the Company have been included herein. The results of operations for the three month periods ended September 30, 2014 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for any future interim period or the full year.

Unless otherwise noted, dollar amounts and disclosures throughout the notes to the condensed consolidated financial statements relate to the Company’s continuing operations and are presented in millions of dollars.

The Company’s fiscal year ends June 30 each year, and we refer to the fiscal year ended June 30, 2014 as “Fiscal 2014” and the fiscal year ending June 30, 2015 as “Fiscal 2015.”

Significant Accounting Policies

There have been no changes to the Company’s significant accounting policies described in its final prospectus filed with the SEC on October 17, 2014.

Discontinued Operations

On June 13, 2014, the Company completed a spin-off of Onvoy, LLC and its subsidiaries (“OVS”) to CII. The spin-off is reported as an equity distribution at carryover basis equal to the net assets and liabilities of OVS on the spin-off date, as the transaction was between entities under common control. See Note 3—Spin-off of Business.

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

(in millions, except share and per share data)

 

Use of Estimates

The preparation of the Company’s consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expense during the reporting period. Significant estimates are used when establishing allowances for doubtful accounts and accruals for disputed line cost billings, determining useful lives for depreciation and amortization and accruals for exit activities associated with real estate leases, assessing the need for impairment charges (including those related to intangible assets and goodwill), determining the fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed in business combinations, accounting for income taxes and related valuation allowances against deferred tax assets and estimating the common unit fair values used to compute the stock-based compensation liability. Management evaluates these estimates and judgments on an ongoing basis and makes estimates based on historical experience, current conditions, and various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. The results of these estimates form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities as well as identifying and assessing the accounting treatment with respect to commitments and contingencies. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

On May 28, 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Accounting Standard Update (“ASU”) 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which requires an entity to recognize the amount of revenue to which it expects to be entitled for the transfer of promised goods or services to customers. The ASU will replace most existing revenue recognition guidance in GAAP when it becomes effective. The new standard is effective for the Company on or after July 1, 2017. Early application is not permitted. The standard permits the use of either the retrospective or cumulative effect transition method. The Company is evaluating the effect that ASU 2014-09 will have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures. The Company has not yet selected a transition method nor has it determined the effect of the standard on its ongoing financial reporting.

 

 

(2) ACQUISITIONS

As of September 30, 2014 and since its formation, the Company has consummated 32 transactions accounted for as business combinations. The consummation of the acquisitions was executed as part of the Company’s business strategy of expanding through acquisitions. The acquisitions of these businesses have allowed the Company to increase the scale at which it operates, which in turn affords the Company the ability to increase its operating leverage, extend its network reach, and broaden its customer base.

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the operations of the acquired entities from their respective acquisition dates.

Acquisition Method Accounting Estimates

The Company initially recognizes the assets and liabilities acquired from the aforementioned acquisitions based on its preliminary estimates of their acquisition date fair values. As additional information becomes known concerning the acquired assets and assumed liabilities, management may make adjustments to the opening balance sheet of the acquired company up to the end of the measurement period, which is no longer than a one year period following the acquisition date. The determination of the fair values of the acquired assets and liabilities assumed (and the related determination of estimated lives of depreciable tangible and identifiable intangible assets) requires significant judgment. As of September 30, 2014, the Company has not completed its fair value analysis and calculations in sufficient detail necessary to arrive at the final estimates of the fair value of certain working capital and non-working capital acquired assets and assumed liabilities, including the allocations to property, plant and equipment, goodwill and intangible assets, deferred revenue and resulting deferred taxes related to its acquisitions of CoreXchange, Geo, AtlantaNAP and Neo. All information presented with respect to certain working capital and non-working capital acquired assets and liabilities assumed as it relates to these acquisitions is preliminary and subject to revision pending the final fair value analysis. During the three months ended September 30, 2014, the Company finalized its fair value analysis and resulting purchase accounting for the Access and Fiberlink acquisitions consummated in Fiscal 2014.

The goodwill arising from the Company’s acquisitions results from synergies, anticipated incremental sales to the acquired company customer base, and economies-of-scale expected from the acquisitions. The Company has allocated the goodwill to the reporting units (in existence on the respective acquisition dates) that were expected to benefit from the acquired goodwill. The allocation was determined based on the excess of the estimated fair value of the reporting unit over the estimated fair value of the individual assets acquired and liabilities assumed that were assigned to the reporting units. Note 4 - Goodwill, discloses the preliminary and/or final allocation of the Company’s acquired goodwill to each of its reporting units.

In each of the Company’s Fiscal 2014 and Fiscal 2015 acquisitions, the Company acquired certain customer relationships. These relationships represent a valuable intangible asset, as the Company anticipates continued business from the acquired customer bases. The Company’s estimate of the fair value of the acquired customer relationships is based on a multi-period excess earnings valuation technique that utilizes Level 3 inputs. The fair value of the acquired customer relationships for each acquisition was determined as follows: Fiscal 2015 acquisitions - AtlantaNAP, $30.4; and Neo, $13.4; Fiscal 2014 acquisitions - Access, $18.0; Fiberlink, $19.3; CoreXchange, $10.1; and Geo, $61.2. The Company has not yet finalized the valuation of acquired customer relationships for CoreXchange, Geo, AtlantaNAP and Neo. For Fiscal 2015, the Company estimated the useful life of the acquired customer relationships to be approximately 11 years for AtlantaNAP and 15 years for Neo. For Fiscal 2014, the Company estimated the useful life of the acquired customer relationships to be approximately 20 years for Access, 12 years for Corelink and Geo, 11 years for CoreXchange, and 18 years for Fiberlink.

The previous owners of Geo had entered into various agreements, including IRU agreements with other telecommunication service providers to lease fiber and other bandwidth infrastructure in exchange for upfront cash payments. The Company accounted for acquired deferred revenue at its acquisition date fair value, which was determined utilizing the market approach. The market approach incorporated the actual up-front payments received by Geo under contracts entered within 18 months of the acquisition, as those were recent market transactions between parties unrelated to the Company. A fair value of $44.3 was assigned to the acquired deferred revenue balance of Geo. The acquired deferred revenue is being recognized over a weighted average remaining contract term of 9.7 years for Geo.

 

Purchase Accounting Estimates Associated with Deferred Taxes

Based on the Company’s fair value assessment related to deferred tax assets acquired in the Geo acquisition, a value of $38.0 was assigned to the acquired net deferred tax liabilities.

The tax effect of temporary differences that give rise to significant portions of the net deferred tax liabilities are as follows:

During the quarter ended September 30, 2014, the Company finalized its acquisition accounting for Access and Fiberlink and its previously reported allocation of the purchase consideration associated with these acquisitions as a result of changes to the original fair value estimates of certain items acquired. These changes are the result of additional information obtained since the filing of the Company's final prospectus on October 17, 2014 that related to facts and circumstances that existed at the respective acquisition dates. Related to the Access acquisition, property, plant and equipment increased by $3.1, customer relationship intangible assets increased by $2.0, and deferred tax liabilities increased by $2.0 related to the Company's final valuation of non-working capital acquired assets and the related deferred tax impacts. Related to the Fiberlink acquisition, property, plant and equipment increased by $9.9, customer relationship intangible assets increased by $2.1, and deferred tax assets increased by $0.7 related to the Company's final valuation of non-working capital acquired assets and the related deferred tax impacts. The Company has recast the previously reported consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2014 in connection with the finalization of acquisition accounting for these acquisitions. The Company did not recast the previously reported consolidated statement of operations for the year ended June 30, 2014 due to the immaterial effect of the related adjustments.

Transaction Costs

Transaction costs include expenses associated with professional services (i.e., legal, accounting, regulatory, etc.) rendered in connection with signed and/or closed acquisitions or disposals (including spin-offs), travel expense, severance expense incurred on the date of acquisition or disposal, and other direct expenses incurred that are associated with such acquisitions or disposals. The Company incurred transaction costs of $3.4 and $0.6 during the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively. Transaction costs have been included in selling, general and administrative expenses in the condensed consolidated statements of operations and in cash flows from operating activities in the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows during these periods.

Pro-forma Financial Information

The pro forma results presented below include the effects of the Company’s Fiscal 2014 acquisitions of Corelink, Access, Fiberlink, CoreXchange, and Geo and Fiscal 2015 acquisitions of the AtlantaNAP and Neo as if the acquisitions occurred on July 1, 2013. The pro forma loss for the quarters ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 includes the additional depreciation and amortization resulting from the adjustments to the value of property and equipment and intangible assets resulting from purchase accounting and adjustment to amortized revenue during Fiscal 2014 and 2015 as a result of the acquisition date valuation of assumed deferred revenue. The pro forma results also include interest expense associated with debt used to fund the acquisitions. The pro forma results do not include any anticipated synergies or other expected benefits of the acquisitions. The unaudited pro forma financial information below (in millions) is not necessarily indicative of either future results of operations or results that might have been achieved had the acquisitions been consummated as of July 1, 2013.

SPIN-OFF OF BUSINESS

On June 13, 2014, the Company completed a spin-off of OVS, a company that provides voice and managed services. Prior to the spin-off, on March 7, 2014, OVS converted from a corporation to an LLC. At that time, certain tax attributes were retained by the Company in connection with the conversion, primarily deferred tax assets associated with net operating loss carryforwards totaling $13.7. On the spin-off date, the remaining net assets of OVS were distributed to CII.

The spin-off is reported as an equity distribution at carryover basis equal to the net assets and liabilities of OVS on the spin-off date, as the transaction was between entities under common control.

During the three months ended September 30, 2014, goodwill decreased by $6.7 due to foreign currency movements impacting goodwill allocated to the U.K. and France operations. In addition, the Company recorded purchase accounting adjustments to acquisitions closed during the past twelve months, which resulted in a net decrease to goodwill of $1.1 during the first quarter of Fiscal 2015. The Company did not recast the previously reported consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2014 and statement of operations for the year ended June 30, 2014 due to the immaterial effect of these adjustments.

In addition, the Company has recast goodwill reported in the consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2014 in connection with the Company’s final valuation of property, plant and equipment and intangible assets and associated deferred taxes impact for the Access and Fiberlink acquisitions, which resulted in a net decrease to goodwill of $15.8 (see Note 2 - Acquisitions).

Previously reported provisional allocations of goodwill to the Waves and Dark Fiber reporting units have been adjusted as of June 30, 2014 in relation to the Geo acquisition, with a corresponding increase in goodwill allocated to the Waves SPG of $27.5 and an offsetting decrease in goodwill allocated to the Dark Fiber reporting unit.
