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") provides diversified telecommunications and technology services. The Company generates a large portion of its revenue by serving customers in the Greater Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio areas. An economic downturn or natural disaster occurring in this, or a portion of this, limited operating territory could have a disproportionate effect on our business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows compared to similar companies of a national scope and similar companies operating in different geographic areas.
As of June 30, 2016, we operate our business through the following segments: Entertainment and Communications and IT Services and Hardware.
The company has 3,400 employees as of June 30, 2016, and approximately 30% of its employees are covered by a collective bargaining agreement with Communications Workers of America (“CWA”) that will be in effect through May 12, 2018.
The Company has receivables with one large customer, General Electric Company ("GE"), that makes up 22% of the outstanding accounts receivable balance at June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015. GE represented 12% and 11% of consolidated revenue for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively, compared to 11% and 12% during the same periods in 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, 2015 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 2015 Annual Report on Form 10-K. Operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 are not necessarily indicative of the results expected for the full year or any other interim period.
The closing of our wireless operations in March 2015 represented a strategic shift in our business. Therefore, certain wireless assets, liabilities and results of operations are reported as discontinued operations in our financial statements. See Note 9 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.
Restructuring Liability — As of June 30, 2016, restructuring liabilities have been established for employee separations, lease abandonments and other charges. As of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, $0.2 million and $0.9 million, respectively, of the restructuring liabilities were included in “Other current liabilities,” in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. As of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, $0.2 million was included in “Other noncurrent liabilities” in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
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.

Recently Issued Accounting Standards — In March 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2016-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation, which simplifies various aspects related to how share-based payments are accounted for and presented in the financial statements. The new standard is effective for public business entities for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016. The Company is currently in the process of evaluating the impact of adoption of this ASU on the Company’s consolidated financial statements and plans to adopt the standard effective January 1, 2017.
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases, which represents a wholesale change to lease accounting. The standard introduces a lessee model that brings most leases on the balance sheet as well as aligning certain underlying principles of the new lessor model with those in Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 606. The new standard is effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and lessees and lessors are required to use a modified retrospective transition method for existing leases. The Company is currently in the process of evaluating the impact of adoption of this ASU on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
The FASB issued ASU 2016-01, Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities, in January 2016, which amends the guidance in U.S. GAAP on the classification and measurement of financial instruments. The amended guidance requires entities to carry all investments in equity securities at fair value through net income unless the entity has elected the practicability exception to fair value measurement. This standard will be effective for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2018 and will require a cumulative-effect adjustment to beginning retained earnings on this 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 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-03, Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs, which changes the presentation of debt issuance costs in the financial statements.  Specifically, this amendment requires that costs associated with the issuance of debt be presented on the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the related debt liability. The Company retrospectively adopted the amended standard effective January 1, 2016. The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet for the period ending December 31, 2015 has been restated to reflect this change in accounting principle. Note issuance costs of $8.0 million were reclassed from “Other noncurrent assets” to “Long-term debt, less current portion.” Note 3 has been updated to reflect the adjustment. On the effective date of ASU 2015-03, the Company made a one-time policy election to record costs incurred in connection with obtaining revolving credit agreements as an asset and to amortize these costs ratably over the term of the agreement. This accounting treatment is consistent with how deferred financing costs were accounted for prior to adoption of ASU 2015-03.
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. In August 2015, ASU 2015-14 was issued deferring the effective date of ASU 2014-09 to annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017 with an optional early application date for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016. The Company has elected to adopt the standard in the first quarter of the fiscal year ending December 31, 2018. In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-08, an update to ASU 2014-09, clarifying the implementation guidance on principal versus agent considerations. The Company is in the process of evaluating the impact of the standard for the IT Services and Hardware segment that is a reseller of Telecom and IT hardware. Under the current guidance, these equipment revenues are generally recorded on a gross basis. The Company is continuing to evaluate the impact of adoption of ASU 2014-09, as well as all subsequent amendments to this standard, on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
No other new accounting pronouncement issued or effective during the year had, or is expected to have, a material impact on the consolidated financial statements.

2.    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 the issuance of common shares for awards under stock-based compensation plans, the exercise of warrants or the 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 and six months ended June 30, 2016, awards under the Company's stock-based compensation plans for common shares of 2.2 million and 2.6 million, respectively, were excluded from the computation of diluted EPS as the inclusion would have been anti-dilutive. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, awards under the Company's stock-based compensation plans for common shares of 3.4 million and 3.7 million, respectively, were excluded from the computation of diluted EPS as the inclusion would have been anti-dilutive. For all periods presented, with the exception of the three months ended June 30, 2015, preferred stock convertible into 4.5 million common shares was excluded as it was anti-dilutive.

In the second quarter of 2016, the Company amended its Corporate Credit Agreement originally dated as of November 20, 2012. This amendment reduces the aggregate revolving commitments available under the revolving credit facility to $150.0 million, modifies certain financial covenants and related definitions governing leverage ratios and capital expenditures, and extends the maturity date of the revolving credit facility to January 2020. As a result of the amendment, the Company recorded a $1.7 million loss on extinguishment of debt in the second quarter of 2016. There were no outstanding borrowings on the Corporate Credit Agreement's revolving credit facility, leaving $150.0 million available for borrowings as of June 30, 2016.

As of June 30, 2016, the Company had $33.0 million of borrowings and $6.3 million of letters of credit outstanding under the accounts receivable securitization facility ("Receivables Facility"), leaving $79.6 million remaining availability on the total borrowing capacity of $118.9 million. In the second quarter of 2016, the Company executed an amendment of its Receivables Facility, which replaced, amended and added certain provisions and definitions to increase the credit availability, renew the facility, which is subject to renewal every 364 days, until May 26, 2017, and extend the facility's termination date to May 27, 2019. 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 Receivables Facility, the Company could obtain up to $120.0 million depending on the quantity and quality of accounts receivable. Under this agreement, 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 the Company's other subsidiaries or the Company.

During the first quarter of 2016, the Company redeemed $29.8 million of its outstanding 6.30% unsecured senior notes due 2028 (the "Cincinnati Bell Telephone Notes") at an average redemption price of 91.130% which resulted in a gain on extinguishment of debt of $2.4 million.

During the second quarter of 2016, the Company repaid $81.4 million of its outstanding 8 3/8 % Senior Notes due 2020 at an average redemption price of 104.184% which resulted in a loss on extinguishment of debt of $3.7 million. Additionally, the Company redeemed $5.0 million of its Cincinnati Bell Telephone Notes at a redemption price of 94.875% which resulted in a gain on extinguishment of debt of $0.2 million in the second quarter of 2016.

5.    Pension and Postretirement Plans
The Company sponsors three noncontributory defined benefit plans and a postretirement health and life insurance plan. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, approximately 10% of the costs were capitalized as a component of property, plant and equipment related to construction of our copper and fiber networks. During the second quarter of 2015, the bargained pension plan was amended to eliminate all future pension credits and transition benefits. As a result, we recognized a curtailment loss of $0.3 million in the three months ended June 30, 2015 and remeasured the associated pension obligation. This remeasurement resulted in a decrease of our pension liability of $1.7 million.
For the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, pension and postretirement benefit costs were as follows:

Amortizations of prior service cost (benefit) and actuarial loss represent reclassifications from accumulated other comprehensive income.
Based on current assumptions, management believes that the Company will not make any contributions to the qualified pension plan in 2016. Contributions to non-qualified pension plans in 2016 are expected to be approximately $2 million. Management expects to make cash payments of approximately $10 million related to its postretirement health plans in 2016.
For the six months ended June 30, 2016, contributions to the non-qualified pension plans were $1.2 million and contributions to the postretirement plan were $4.1 million.

6.    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 and six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company recognized stock-based compensation expense of $3.5 million and $5.4 million, respectively, inclusive of $1.1 million and $1.4 million of mark-to-market expense on awards indexed to the Company's stock price. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company recognized stock-based compensation expense of $1.3 million and $3.3 million, respectively, which reflected $0.5 million and $0.9 million of mark-to-market expense on awards indexed to the Company's stock price. As of June 30, 2016, there was $12.3 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 one year.
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. In the fourth quarter of 2015, the executive deferred compensation plan was terminated. All amounts due under the executive deferred compensation plan will be distributed to plan participants during 2016. At both June 30, 2016 and 2015, the number of common shares deferred under these plans was 0.3 million. 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 and six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company recognized expense related to these awards of $0.2 million and $0.3 million, respectively. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company recognized expense related to these awards of $0.1 million and $0.2 million, respectively.

The components of net periodic pension and postretirement benefit costs are reported within "Cost of services," "Cost of products sold," and "Selling, general and administrative" expenses on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.
Share Repurchases
In 2010, the Board of Directors approved a plan for the repurchase of the Company's outstanding common stock in an amount up to $150.0 million. During the second quarter of 2016, the Company repurchased and retired approximately 1.2 million shares of its common stock for $4.6 million. In prior years, the Company repurchased and retired a total of 7.4 million shares at a total cost of $20.8 million. As of June 30, 2016, the Company has the authority to repurchase its common stock with a value of up to $124.6 million under the plan approved by its Board of Directors, subject to satisfaction of the requirements under its bond indentures and Corporate Credit Agreement.
Reverse Stock Split
On August 2, 2016, our shareholders authorized the Board of Directors to effect, in its discretion, a reverse stock split of the outstanding and treasury Common Shares at a reverse stock split 1-for-5 ratio. The Board of Directors determined that October 5, 2016 would be the effective date for the reverse stock split.

8.    Investment in CyrusOne
On January 24, 2013, we completed the initial public offering ("IPO") of CyrusOne Inc. ("CyrusOne"), which owns and operates our former Data Center Colocation business. CyrusOne conducts its data center business through CyrusOne LP, an operating partnership. Effective with the IPO, our 69% ownership was held in the form of 1.9 million shares of unregistered common stock of CyrusOne Inc. and 42.6 million economically equivalent partnership units in its underlying operating entity, CyrusOne LP. Therefore, effective January 24, 2013, we no longer included the accounts of CyrusOne in our consolidated financial statements and accounted for our ownership as an equity method investment as we no longer controlled the operations but maintained significant influence. From the date of the IPO, we recognized our proportionate share of CyrusOne's net income or loss as non-operating income or expense in our statement of operations through December 31, 2015. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, our equity method share of CyrusOne's net loss was $1.3 million and $4.4 million, respectively.
Effective December 31, 2015, we exchanged our remaining 6.3 million operating partnership units in CyrusOne LP for an equal number of newly issued shares of common stock of CyrusOne Inc. As a result, we owned 6.9 million shares of CyrusOne's common shares and no longer have significant influence over the entity. Therefore, as of December 31, 2015, our ownership in CyrusOne is accounted for as a cost method investment, and we no longer record our pro-rata share of CyrusOne's financial results in our statement of operations. For the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, the Company received cash dividends from CyrusOne totaling $4.9 million and $15.0 million, respectively. Dividends from CyrusOne were recognized as a reduction of our investment.
In the second quarter of 2016, we sold 3.1 million shares of CyrusOne Inc. common stock for net proceeds totaling $142.5 million that resulted in a gain of $118.6 million. In the second quarter of 2015, we sold 14.3 million operating partnership units for net proceeds of $426.0 million that resulted in a gain of $295.2 million. As of June 30, 2016, we held 3.8 million shares of CyrusOne's common shares valued at $209.4 million.
Subsequent to the end of the second quarter of 2016, we sold 0.3 million shares of CyrusOne Inc. common stock for net proceeds totaling approximately $19 million that resulted in a gain of approximately $17 million.
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.
Operating Expenses - We lease data center and office space from CyrusOne at certain locations in the Cincinnati area under operating leases and are also billed for other services provided by CyrusOne under contractual service arrangements. In the normal course of business, the Company also provides certain administrative services to CyrusOne which are billed based on agreed-upon rates.

9.    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 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 resulted in a gain of $15.9 million in the second quarter of 2015.

Wireless financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 were nominal. Wireless financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 reported as Income from discontinued operations, net of tax on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations are as follows:

11.    Supplemental Guarantor Information
Cincinnati Bell Telephone Notes
As of June 30, 2016, Cincinnati Bell Telephone Company LLC (“CBT”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cincinnati Bell Inc. (the “Parent Company”), had $93.9 million in notes outstanding that are guaranteed by the Parent Company and no other subsidiaries of the Parent Company. The guarantee is full and unconditional. The Parent Company’s subsidiaries generate substantially all of its income and cash flow and generally distribute or advance the funds necessary to meet the Parent Company’s debt service obligations. During the first six months of 2016 and 2015, certain entities issued dividends to the Parent Company which impacted equity and intercompany accounts on the balance sheets of certain non-guarantor entities.

The following information sets forth the Condensed Consolidating Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income (Loss) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, Condensed Consolidating Balance Sheets as of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, and Condensed Consolidating Statements of Cash Flows for the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 of (1) the Parent Company, as the guarantor, (2) CBT, as the issuer, and (3) the non-guarantor subsidiaries on a combined basis.
