Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On October 18, 2017, in connection with a lender presentation to private lenders and potential lenders, Mediacom Broadband LLC provided preliminary estimates for the three months ended September 30, 2017, and such estimates are provided below. Investors are cautioned that Mediacom Broadband LLC is currently in the process of finalizing its financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2017, and these preliminary estimates are based solely upon information available to Mediacom Broadband LLC as of the date hereof. Accordingly, such preliminary financial and operating data may change, and those changes may be material. Therefore, investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these estimates.
Mediacom Broadband LLC estimates as of, and for the three months ended September 30, 2017:
|-||Revenues were between $264.5 $265.5 million|
|-||Operating income was between $59.1 $61.6 million|
|-||System cash flow (SCF) was between $103.4 $104.4 million|
|-||Ending senior secured debt under Mediacom Broadband LLCs existing bank credit facility of $972.0 million|
|-||Ending video customers of 455,000|
|-||Ending high-speed data customers of 659,000|
|-||Ending phone customers of 300,000|
SCF is not a financial measure calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in the United States. Mediacom Broadband LLC defines SCF as operating income before depreciation and amortization and management fees. Mediacom Broadband LLC believes that SCF is useful for investors because it enables them to assess our performance in a manner similar to the methods used by management, and provide measures that can be used to analyze its value and evaluate its performance compared to other companies in the cable industry. For a reconciliation of SCF to operating income for the three months ended September 30, 2017, see below (dollars in millions).
Depreciation and amortization
