NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED) 

1.
Description of Business and Accounting Policies
Description of Business — Cincinnati Bell Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries ("Cincinnati Bell", "we", "our", "us" or the "Company") is a full-service regional provider of entertainment, data and voice communications services, a provider of managed and professional information technology services, and a reseller of information technology ("IT") and telephony equipment. In addition, enterprise customers across the United States rely on Cincinnati Bell Technology Solutions Inc. ("CBTS"), a wholly-owned subsidiary, for efficient, scalable communications systems and end-to-end IT solutions. As of March 31, 2015, we operate our business through the following segments: Entertainment and Communications (formerly known as "Wireline") and IT Services and Hardware.
The Company has receivables with one Fortune 10 Industrial customer that makes up 25% and 26% of the outstanding accounts receivable balance at March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively. This same customer represented 12% of consolidated revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014.

As of December 31, 2014, we operated three business segments: Entertainment and Communications, IT Services and Hardware and Wireless. In the second quarter of 2014, we entered into agreements to sell our wireless spectrum licenses and certain other assets related to our wireless business. The agreement to sell our wireless spectrum license closed on September 30, 2014, for cash proceeds of $194.4 million. Simultaneously, we entered into a separate agreement to use certain spectrum licenses for $8.00 until we no longer provide wireless service. Effective March 31, 2015, all wireless subscribers have been migrated off our network and we ceased providing wireless services and operations. Certain wireless tower lease obligations and other assets were transferred to the acquiring company on April 1, 2015.

On January 24, 2013, we completed the initial public offering ("IPO") of CyrusOne Inc. ("CyrusOne"), which owns and operates our former Data Center Colocation segment. CyrusOne conducts its data center business through CyrusOne LP, an operating partnership. As of March 31, 2015, we held approximately 1.9 million shares of CyrusOne's common stock and were a limited partner in CyrusOne LP, owning approximately 26.6 million of its partnership units. We effectively owned approximately 43% of CyrusOne through our ownership of its common stock and partnership units of CyrusOne LP. We account for our ownership in CyrusOne as an equity method investment. On April 7, 2015, we consummated the sale of 14.3 million operating partnership units of CyrusOne LP to CyrusOne, Inc. at a price of $29.88 per unit for proceeds of $426.0 million.

A tentative agreement was reached on January 23, 2015 with the Communications Workers of America (“CWA”) and was ratified by local members of the union on February 27, 2015. The new agreement will be in effect through May 12, 2018. Per the terms of the agreement, the remaining bargained pension plan credits will be frozen effective May 1, 2015 resulting in an actuarial remeasurement of the pension plan as of that date. The impact of the remeasurement will be recorded in second quarter of 2015.

Basis of Presentation — The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements of the Company have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and, in the opinion of management, include all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the results of operations, other comprehensive income, financial position, and cash flows for each period presented.

The adjustments referred to above are of a normal and recurring nature. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted pursuant to SEC rules and regulations for interim reporting.

The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of December 31, 2014 was derived from audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by U.S. GAAP. These Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s 2014 Annual Report on Form 10-K. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results expected for the full year or any other interim period.

Form 10-Q Part I
 
Cincinnati Bell Inc.

The closing of our wireless operations represents a strategic shift in our business. Therefore, certain wireless assets, liabilities and results of operations will be reported as discontinued operations in our financial statements. Accordingly, the Company has recast its prior period results to be comparable with the current discontinued operations presentation with the exception of the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. See Note 2 for all required disclosures.
Use of Estimates — Preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported. Actual results could differ from those estimates. In the normal course of business, the Company is subject to various regulatory and tax proceedings, lawsuits, claims, and other matters. The Company believes adequate provision has been made for all such asserted and unasserted claims in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Such matters are subject to many uncertainties and outcomes that are not predictable with assurance.
Equity Method Investments Effective January 24, 2013, the completion date of CyrusOne's IPO, our ownership in CyrusOne is accounted for as an equity method investment. From that date, we recognize our proportionate share of CyrusOne's net income or loss as non-operating income or expense in our Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations. For the quarter ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, the Company received cash dividends from CyrusOne totaling $6.0 million and $7.1 million, respectively. Dividends from CyrusOne are recognized as a reduction of our investment.
During the second quarter of 2014, we invested a total of $5.5 million in other entities, which are accounted for as equity method investments, and the carrying value has been recorded in "Other noncurrent assets" in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The Company's proportionate share of their respective net income is recorded in "Other expense, net" in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations.
Income Taxes — The Company’s income tax provision for interim periods is determined through the use of an estimated annual effective tax rate applied to year-to-date ordinary income, as well as the tax effects associated with discrete items. The Company expects its effective rate to exceed statutory rates primarily due to non-deductible expenses, including interest on securities originally issued to acquire its broadband business or securities subsequently issued to refinance those securities.
Recently Issued Accounting Standards — On January 9, 2015, the FASB issued Accounting Standard Update ("ASU") 2015-01, Income Statement-Extraordinary and Unusual Items. The updated standard will no longer allow for transactions that are unusual in nature and occur infrequently to be presented net-of-tax after income from continuing operations as an extraordinary item in the statements of operations. Under the new guidance, these transactions will be separately presented within income from continuing operations similar to current guidance for transactions that are unusual in nature or occur infrequently. The standard will be effective for us on January 1, 2016. The adoption of this pronouncement is not expected to have a material impact on our financial statements as there are no transactions presented as an extraordinary item.
In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-03, Interest - Imputation of Interest, which changes the presentation of debt issuance costs in the financial statements. The amendments in this update require companies to present such costs in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the related debt liability rather than as an asset and to record amortization of the costs as interest expense. The standard will be effective on January 1, 2016 and will be applied retrospectively for prior periods. The Company estimates approximately $10 million of debt issuance costs will be reclassified from "Other non-current assets" to "Long term debt, less current portion" on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets on the date of adoption. The adoption is not expected to impact the Statement of Operations.
In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-05, Intangibles-Goodwill and Other-Internal-Use Software, which amends ASC 350-40 to provide customers with guidance on determining whether a cloud computing arrangement contains a software license that should be accounted for as internal-use software. The standard will be effective on January 1, 2016 and can be adopted retrospectively or prospectively to arrangements entered into, or materially modified, after the effective date. The Company is currently in the process of evaluating the impact of adoption of this ASU on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
In April 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-08, Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity.  The amendments in this update increased the threshold for a disposal to qualify as a discontinued operation and require new disclosures of both discontinued operations and certain other disposals that do not meet the definition of a discontinued operation.  The standard was effective for us on January 1, 2015 and the amended guidance has been applied to the discontinuation of our wireless operations. For a full discussion of discontinued operations and required disclosures reference Note 2.

Form 10-Q Part I
 
Cincinnati Bell Inc.

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. The standard’s core principle is that a company will recognize revenue when it transfers promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. This standard also includes expanded disclosure requirements that result in an entity providing users of financial statements with comprehensive information about the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from the entity’s contracts with customers. This standard will be effective for us in the first quarter of the fiscal year ending December 31, 2017. The Company is currently in the process of evaluating the impact of adoption of this ASU on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
In August 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-15, Disclosure of Uncertainties About an Entity's Ability to Continue as a Going Concern.  The amendments provide guidance about management’s responsibility to evaluate whether there is substantial doubt about an entity’s ability to continue as a going concern and to provide related footnote disclosures. The standard will be effective for us on January 1, 2016.  The adoption of this pronouncement is not expected to have a material impact on our financial statements.

2.    Discontinued Operations
Cincinnati Bell Wireless LLC ("CBW"), our former Wireless segment, provided digital wireless voice and data communications services to customers in the Company’s licensed service territory, which included Greater Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio, and areas of northern Kentucky and southeastern Indiana. The Company’s customers were also able to place and receive wireless calls nationally and internationally due to roaming agreements the Company had with other carriers.
In the second quarter of 2014, we entered into agreements to sell our wireless spectrum licenses and certain other assets related to our wireless business, including leases to certain wireless towers and related equipment and other assets. The agreement to sell our spectrum licenses closed on September 30, 2014 for cash proceeds of $194.4 million. Prior to this date, the Company's digital wireless network utilized 50 MHz of licensed spectrum in the Cincinnati area and 40 MHz of licensed spectrum in the Dayton area, which had a carrying value of $88.2 million. Simultaneous with the close of the spectrum sale, the Company entered into a separate agreement to use certain wireless spectrum licenses for $8.00 until we no longer provided wireless service. We ceased providing wireless service effective March 31, 2015. The fair value of the lease, which is considered a Level 3 measurement based on other comparable transactions, totaled $6.4 million and was recorded as a prepaid expense and amortized over a six month period ending March 31, 2015.
As of March 31, 2015, there were no subscribers remaining on the network and we no longer required the use of the spectrum being leased. Therefore, the $112.6 million gain on the sale of the wireless spectrum licenses, which had been previously deferred, was recognized in Net income from discontinued operations (net of tax) in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three months ended March 31, 2015. On April 1, 2015, we transferred certain other assets related to our wireless business, including leases to certain wireless towers and related equipment and other assets, which will result in a gain of approximately $16 million in the second quarter of 2015. As a result, we removed the following assets and liabilities in the second quarter of 2015.

3.    Investment in CyrusOne
On January 24, 2013, we completed the IPO of CyrusOne, our former Data Center Colocation segment. As of that date, we no longer controlled CyrusOne's operations. However, we continue to have significant influence over CyrusOne and account for this investment using the equity method.
Commencing January 17, 2014, we are permitted to exchange the partnership units of CyrusOne LP into cash or shares of common stock of CyrusOne, as determined by CyrusOne, on a one-for-one basis based upon the fair value of a share of CyrusOne common stock, subject to certain limitations which restricted the volume of shares we are permitted to sell. The registration statement filed by CyrusOne on March 24, 2014 became effective on April 4, 2014 and eliminated all prior limitations restricting the volume of shares we are allowed to sell.
As of March 31, 2015, we effectively owned 43% of CyrusOne, which was held in the form of 1.9 million shares of registered common stock of CyrusOne Inc. and 26.6 million economically equivalent partnership units in its underlying operating entity, CyrusOne LP. The fair value of this investment was $886.7 million based on the quoted market price of CyrusOne's common stock, which is considered a Level 1 measurement in the fair value hierarchy. For the three months ended March 31, 2015, our equity method share of CyrusOne's net loss was $3.1 million. For the three months ended March 31, 2014, our equity method share of CyrusOne's net income was $0.5 million.
On April 7, 2015, we consummated the sale of 14.3 million operating partnership units of CyrusOne LP to CyrusOne, Inc. at a price of $29.88 per unit. The sale generated proceeds of $426.0 million and resulted in a gain of $295.2 million which will be recognized in the second quarter of 2015. After completion of the sale, we effectively own 22% of CyrusOne, which is held in the form of 1.9 million shares of registered common stock of CyrusOne Inc. and 12.3 million economically equivalent partnership units in its underlying operating entity, CyrusOne LP.
Summarized financial information for CyrusOne is as follows:

Transactions with CyrusOne
Revenues - The Company records revenue from CyrusOne under contractual service arrangements which include, among others, providing services such as fiber transport, network support, service calls, monitoring and management, storage and back-up, and IT systems support.

In the normal course of business, the Company also provides certain administrative services to CyrusOne which are billed based on agreed-upon rates. These expense recoveries from CyrusOne are credited to the expense account in which they were initially recorded.

Dividends of $6.0 million were received in the first quarter of 2015. On February 18, 2015, CyrusOne declared dividends of $0.315 per share payable on its common shares and CyrusOne LP partnership units. This dividend was paid on April 15, 2015.
In addition to the agreements noted above, the Company entered into a tax sharing agreement with CyrusOne.  Under the terms of the agreement, CyrusOne will reimburse the Company for the Texas Margin Tax liability that CyrusOne would have incurred if they filed a Texas Margin Tax return separate from the consolidated filing.  The agreement will remain in effect until the Texas Margin Tax return for the period ending December 31, 2014 is filed. As of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the receivable related to this agreement amounted to $0.5 million and $1.7 million, respectively. These balances are included in Receivable from CyrusOne.

4.    Earnings Per Common Share
Basic earnings per common share (“EPS”) is based upon the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted EPS reflects the potential dilution that would occur upon issuance of common shares for awards under stock-based compensation plans, exercise of warrants or conversion of preferred stock, but only to the extent that they are considered dilutive.
The following table shows the computation of basic and diluted EPS:

For the three months ended March 31, 2015, the Company had a net loss available to common shareholders in continuing operations and, as a result, all common stock equivalents were excluded from the computation of diluted EPS as their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive. For the three months ended March 31, 2014, awards under the Company's stock-based compensation plans for common shares of 3.9 million were excluded from the computation of diluted EPS as the inclusion would have been anti-dilutive. For all periods presented, preferred stock convertible into 4.5 million common shares was excluded as it was anti-dilutive.

There were no outstanding borrowings on the Corporate Credit Agreement's revolving credit facility, leaving $150.0 million available for borrowings as of March 31, 2015. This revolving credit facility expires in July 2017.
The Company entered into an Incremental Assumption Agreement to the Company's existing Corporate Credit Agreement on April 6, 2015. Effective with the consummation of the sale of 14.3 million CyrusOne LP operating partnership units, the aggregate available borrowings on the Corporate Credit Agreement's revolving credit facility increased to $175.0 million for the remainder of the term.
As of March 31, 2015, the Company had $26.7 million of borrowings and $6.3 million of letters of credit outstanding under the accounts receivable securitization facility (“Receivables Facility”), leaving $69.0 million of remaining availability on the total borrowing capacity of $102.0 million. The Receivables Facility will terminate June 2, 2016, unless terminated earlier pursuant to its terms. In the event the Receivables Facility is not renewed, the Company has the ability to refinance any outstanding borrowings with borrowings under the Corporate Credit Agreement. Under the terms of the Agreement, Cincinnati Bell Inc. could obtain up to $120.0 million depending on the quantity and quality of accounts receivable. Under the Receivables Facility, certain subsidiaries, or originators, sell their respective trade receivables on a continuous basis to Cincinnati Bell Funding LLC (“CBF”). Although CBF is a wholly-owned consolidated subsidiary of the Company, CBF is legally separate from the Company and each of the Company’s other subsidiaries. Upon and after the sale or contribution of the accounts receivable to CBF, such accounts receivable are legally assets of CBF and, as such, are not available to creditors of other subsidiaries or the Company.
On April 7, 2015, the Company notified its trustee of its election to redeem $300.0 million of the outstanding 8 ¾% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2018, at a redemption rate of 102.188% on May 7, 2015. As a result, a loss on extinguishment of debt of approximately $10 million will be recorded in the second quarter of 2015.

The Company made severance payments during the three months ended March 31, 2015 pursuant to its written severance plan. In the first quarter of 2015, employee separation charges were associated with discontinuing our cyber-security product offering and integrating each of our segments' business markets. Lease abandonment costs represent future minimum lease obligations, net of expected sublease income, for abandoned facilities. Lease payments on abandoned facilities will continue through 2019. Other represents project related expenses as we continue to identify opportunities to integrate the business markets within our Entertainment and Communications and IT Services & Hardware segment.

9.    Stock-Based and Other Compensation Plans
The Company grants stock options, stock appreciation rights (“SARs”), long-term incentive plan performance-based awards, and time-based restricted shares, some of which are cash-settled awards with the final payment indexed to the percentage change in the Company’s stock price from the date of grant.
For the three months ended March 31, 2015, the Company recognized stock-based compensation expense of $2.0 million, inclusive of $0.4 million of mark-to-market expense on awards indexed to the Company's stock price. For the three months ended March 31, 2014, the Company recognized stock-based compensation expense of $0.9 million, inclusive of a $0.2 million mark-to-market gain on awards indexed to the Company's stock price. As of March 31, 2015, there was $15.7 million of unrecognized compensation expense related to these awards. The remaining compensation expense for the stock options, SARs and restricted awards is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of approximately two years, and the remaining expense for long-term incentive plan performance-based awards will be recognized within approximately two years.
The Company also has deferred compensation plans for its Board of Directors and certain executives. Under these plans, participants can elect to invest their deferrals in the Company’s common stock. At March 31, 2015 and 2014, the number of common shares deferred under these plans was 0.4 million and 0.6 million, respectively. As these awards can be settled in cash, the Company records compensation costs each period based on the change in the Company’s stock price. For the three months ended March 31, 2015, the Company recognized expense of $0.1 million. For the three months ended March 31, 2014, the Company recognized nominal expense.
