Longleaf Partners Small-Cap Fund Comments on Level 3 Communications - Feb 22, 2017

Level 3 Communications (NYSE:LVLT) (+4%, +0.19%), a global fiber and integrated communications network company was the primary contributor to the Fund’s fourth quarter return with a 22% gain. The stock rose with the announcement of a merger with CenturyLink, Inc., equating to $66.50 per Level 3 share, a 42% premium to the closing price prior to the announcement. This deal offers numerous benefits for shareholders. The combined company will increase the capacity and reach of CenturyLink’s domestic and Level 3’s global high-bandwidth fiber networks.



Although CenturyLink has been tainted by the performance of its legacy landline business, its Qwest fiber network is a high quality asset. Projected synergies total $975 million, with $125 million in reduced capital expenditures and the remaining $850 million split in half between operating expense reductions and moving data usage onto the company’s own network. Additionally, Level 3 will get four directors on the new board. CenturyLink CEO Glen Post has announced that the new CFO will be Sunit Patel who has successfully integrated large acquisitions and managed balance sheets well in his tenure at Level 3.

Southeastern Asset Management Comments on Level 3 Communications - Oct 14, 2016

Level 3 Communications (NYSE:LVLT) (-10%; -0.6%), the global fiber and integrated communications network company, was the Fund’s primary detractor in the third quarter. In spite of disappointing flat revenue growth, our appraisal increased with the company’s reported higher free cash flow coupon. In local currencies, the company’s Enterprise business grew across regions, with a particularly strong 10% rate in Latin America. Currency translations, however, created a significant drag in the quarter, turning Latin American and Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEA) reported top line results negative. More importantly, total EBITDA in the quarter, as well as projections for the remainder of 2016, were exactly in line with expectations. The company’s growing cash position after over $260 million of free cash flow (FCF) in the quarter took net leverage to 3.5X EBITDA. We remain confident that CEO Jeff Storey and his team will continue to execute and will ultimately close the gap between the stock price and corporate value.

Southeastern Asset Management Comments on Level 3 Communications - Oct 14, 2016

An example is Level 3 Communications (NYSE:LVLT), which is among the largest positions in the Partners, Small-Cap and Global Funds. This fiber network provider reinvests its excess cash into high margin growth rather than paying a dividend, has a beta of 1.5, and only trades at an adjusted 8x earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization (EBITDA) for expected FCF growth in the teens. By contrast, AT&T and Verizon have dividend yields over 4% with betas of 0.6 or less and trade at 7x EBITDA, with growth prospects limited to mid-single digits. Likewise, FedEx, another large holding in the Partners and Global Funds, shares a duopoly with UPS in the U.S. ground business, yet trades at a 13.9x price-to-earnings ratio (P/E), while UPS is at 18.0x. FedEx has lower labor costs and more growth potential as it takes share from UPS and integrates its recent purchase of TNT. FedEx has a dividend yield of less than 1% and a 1.2 beta, while UPS has a 2.9% dividend yield and a beta of 0.7.

Longleaf Partners Comments on Level 3 Communications - Jan 22, 2016

After being a top contributor in the fourth quarter and adding 25%, Level 3 Communications (NYSE:LVLT) gained 10% for the full year. Over the course of the year, operating metrics continued to improve. During the fourth quarter, company segment Core Network Services’ (CNS) organic revenue grew 6% year-over-year. Within CNS, Enterprise revenue grew 8%. This revenue growth, combined with the synergies created by the merger with tw telecom, resulted in margin expansion. The high contribution margins, which are currently over 60%, have been one of the focal points of our Level 3 investment case and are one of the primary drivers of high growth in both EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) and FCF (free cash flow) growth. In 2016, we believe the company will generate approximately $5.00/ share of FCF before discretionary growth capital expenditures, which translates to approximately 10x FCF on current price. The company’s success-based growth capex is tied to new, high margin, revenue-producing contracts. Given management’s excellent execution, we expect leverage ratios to continue to improve from their current 4x debt/EBITDA levels into the 3x’s.

Mario Gabelli Comments on Level 3 Communications Inc. - Nov 23, 2015

Level 3 Communications Inc. (3.1%) (LVLT – $43.69 – NYSE), headquartered in Broomfield, Colorado, is a global provider of IP-based communications services to enterprise, content, government, and wholesale customers. It operates a global services platform anchored by owned fiber networks on three continents and in more than 45 countries, connected by extensive undersea facilities. LVLT’s fiber network includes over 200,000 route miles globally (including 33,000 subsea route miles and over 60,000 metro fiber route miles). LVLT closed its acquisition of tw telecom on October 31, 2014. In July 2015, Level 3 reported slightly softer than expected revenues (largely due to continued pressure from macroeconomic and political environment in Latin America) and stronger than Adjusted EBITDA. As of 2Q’15, LVLT has realized ~$115 million in annualized run-rate Adjusted EBITDA synergies from tw telecom deal. The company plans to achieve ~70% of targeted $200 million savings from this deal by the end of 1Q’16.

Longleaf Partners Comments on Level 3 Communications - Oct 28, 2015

Fiber and networking company Level 3 Communications (NYSE:LVLT) declined 17% as concerns about near term top-line growth rates outweighed improvement in margins and free cash flow (FCF) generation. During the quarter, the company reported organic revenue growth across North America and EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) in-line with expectations, while Latin America, which represents approximately 10% of consolidated revenue, had weaker growth mainly due to currency. The integration of tw telecom remains on track with synergy realizations ahead of schedule. Level 3 already has achieved approximately $115 million of annualized run-rate EBITDA synergies and the company should achieve 70% or $140 million of its annualized synergy target by the end of the first quarter of 2016. FCF growth at Level 3 is ramping up and, we believe, marching toward explosive FCF growth on a per share basis in the next few years as a result of the business’ strong incremental margins, the aforementioned tw telecom synergies, and continued debt reduction and refinancing. During the quarter, major bond rating agencies upgraded approximately $11 billion of the company’s rated debt and credit commitments, further proof of Level 3’s improving business and financial profile.
