BELLEVUE, Wash. - October 24, 2016 - T-Mobile US, Inc. (NASDAQ: TMUS) today reported third quarter 2016 results which again showed that superior customer metrics are driving industry-leading financial results. In the third quarter of 2016, T-Mobile added 2.0 million total net customers while delivering 13% year-over-year growth in service revenue, $366 million in Net Income, and $2.6 billion in Adjusted EBITDA.

"That’s 14 quarters in a row that T-Mobile has won share from the competition,” said John Legere, President and CEO of T-Mobile. “The Un-carrier is delivering. We took share and grew our customer base while producing both financial growth and shareholder value. Most importantly, we are delivering results for both customers and shareholders alike."

Industry-Leading Customer Growth
The Un-carrier strategy continues to be a winning formula for the Company. In the third quarter of 2016, T-Mobile added 2.0 million net customers, bringing its total customer count to more than 69 million. T-Mobile continues to take market share and attract customers from the competition with a differentiated brand and incredible network experience. This was the fourteenth consecutive quarter in which the Company has generated more than 1 million net customer additions.

T-Mobile expects to lead the industry in branded postpaid phone net additions for the 11th consecutive quarter. The Company saw continued growth in branded postpaid phone customers with net additions of 851,000 in the third quarter of 2016. The increase was primarily due to the introduction of the T-Mobile ONE plans, the launch of the iPhone 7 in the quarter and an increase in branded prepaid customer migrations to postpaid plans. Branded postpaid net customer additions were 969,000 in the third quarter of 2016.

In addition to postpaid growth, T-Mobile continues to lead the industry in growing its prepaid business, which is fueled by a thriving MetroPCS brand. Branded prepaid net customer additions in the third quarter of 2016 were 684,000, which was the second best quarterly performance in Company history. T-Mobile is the only provider to grow both postpaid and prepaid for the past 13 quarters in a row. Wholesale net customer additions were 317,000 in the third quarter of 2016.

In addition to attracting customers, T-Mobile is also keeping them longer. Branded postpaid phone churn was 1.32% in the third quarter of 2016, up 5 basis points compared to 1.27% in the second quarter of 2016 and down 14 basis points compared to 1.46% in the third quarter of 2015. Year-over-year, branded postpaid phone churn was lower as a result of the sale of marketing and distribution rights to certain existing T-Mobile co-branded customers to a current MVNO partner, as well as increased customer satisfaction and loyalty from ongoing improvements to network quality, customer service, and the overall value of the Company's offerings in the marketplace. On a pro-forma basis, had the MVNO Transaction closed on July 1, 2016, reported branded postpaid phone churn would have been 1.20% in the third quarter of 2016. Branded prepaid churn was 3.82% in the third quarter of 2016, compared to 3.91% in the second quarter of 2016 and 4.09% in the third quarter of 2015.

Translating Customer Growth into Financial Growth
In addition to strong customer growth, T-Mobile delivered outstanding financial results in the third quarter of 2016 and expects to once again lead the industry in year-over-year percentage growth in service revenue and total revenue.

Service revenues for the third quarter of 2016 grew by 13% year-over-year, primarily due to continued growth in T-Mobile’s customer base. This is expected to mark the tenth consecutive quarter that T-Mobile has led the industry in year-over-year service revenue percentage growth. T-Mobile’s total revenues for the third quarter of 2016 grew by 18% year-over-year, which is also expected to lead the industry for the thirteenth time in the past fourteen quarters.

Branded postpaid phone Average Revenue per User (ARPU) of $48.15 in the third quarter of 2016 was up 2.2% sequentially and generally stable year-over-year. Excluding the impact of Data Stash, branded postpaid phone ARPU was up 1.6% sequentially as the impact of the T-Mobile ONE rate plans and the MVNO Transaction more than offset continued strategic focus on family plan penetration and promotional activity. Excluding the impact of Data Stash, branded postpaid phone ARPU was up 1.5% year-over-year due primarily to growth in insurance plans, higher data attach rates and the MVNO Transaction, partially offset by the family plan penetration and promotional activity. Branded postpaid Average Billings per User (ABPU) was $63.38 in the third quarter of 2016. Excluding the impact of Data Stash, branded postpaid ABPU was up 0.8% sequentially and 1.5% year-over-year. Branded postpaid customers per account grew to 2.78 in the third quarter of 2016, up from 2.64 in the second quarter of 2016 and 2.48 in the third quarter of 2015. The sequential increase was primarily due to the MVNO Transaction and the year-over-year increase was primarily due to ongoing service promotions targeting families, increased penetration of mobile broadband devices and the MVNO Transaction.

Net income was $366 million, up from $225 million in the second quarter of 2016 and up from $138 million in the third quarter of 2015. Net income in the third quarter of 2016 included after-tax spectrum gains of $122 million. Earnings per share (EPS) in the third quarter of 2016 was $0.42, compared to EPS of $0.25 in the second quarter of 2016 and $0.15 in the third quarter of 2015. The after-tax impact of spectrum gains on EPS in the third quarter of 2016 was $0.15. The year-over-year increases in net income and EPS resulted primarily from higher service and equipment revenues due to growth in the customer base and the spectrum gains, partially offset by higher operating and non-operating expenses.

The increase in operating expenses resulted from a rise in cost of equipment due to an increase in devices sold and average cost per device, increased SG&A expense due to strategic investments to support growing the customer base, and higher D&A expense related to leased devices and the build-out of the LTE network. The increase in non-operating expenses was due primarily to higher income tax and interest expense. Net income as a percentage of service revenues was 5.1% in the third quarter of 2016 compared to 2.2% in the third quarter of 2015.

In the third quarter of 2016, Adjusted EBITDA increased by 38% year-over-year to $2.630 billion. Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2016 included spectrum gains of $199 million. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to higher service revenues from growth in the customer base, spectrum gains and synergies realized from the MetroPCS business combination, partially offset by higher SG&A expenses due to strategic investments to support growing the customer base. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 37% for the third quarter of 2016 compared to 30% in the prior year. Excluding the spectrum gains, Adjusted EBITDA margin was 34% for the third quarter of 2016 compared to 30% in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated as Adjusted EBITDA divided by service revenues.

The aggregate net impact from leasing and Data Stash on Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2016 was $294 million, including lease revenues of $353 million offset by the non-cash impact from Data Stash of $59 million.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $1.7 billion in the third quarter of 2016, up from $1.5 billion in the third quarter of 2015. Free cash flow was $581 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared to $411 million in the third quarter of 2015. Adjusted free cash flow was $624 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared to $487 million in the third quarter of 2015.

Fastest 4G LTE Network - Again
T-Mobile was once again the fastest 4G LTE network in the nation based on both download and upload speeds from millions of user-generated tests. This is the eleventh consecutive quarter that T-Mobile has held that title. The Company continued to enhance the coverage breadth and depth of its 4G LTE network to support customer growth in the third quarter of 2016 and beyond. These enhancements included expanding its 4G LTE network coverage to 312 million people, further deploying Wideband LTE to 231 million people, and leading the industry in technology advancements like VoLTE, Carrier Aggregation, 4x4 MIMO, and 256 QAM.

T-Mobile is also continuing to build out Extended Range LTE, which operates on the Company's low-band 700 MHz A-Block spectrum, to enhance coverage and in-building performance. Extended Range LTE currently covers more than 225 million people in 366 market areas. In the third quarter of 2016, T-Mobile closed on several previously announced transactions that increased its total low-band spectrum holdings to 260 million POPs. The Company expects to close on additional previously announced transactions in the fourth quarter of 2016, bringing its total low-band spectrum holdings to 272 million POPs upon closing.

Cash capital expenditures reflect T-Mobile’s continued investment in the expansion of its 4G LTE network. In the third quarter of 2016, cash capital expenditures were $1.2 billion, down from $1.3 billion in the second quarter of 2016 and up from $1.1 billion in the third quarter of 2015.

Raising Customer Outlook and Narrowing Adjusted EBITDA Target for 2016
T-Mobile expects to drive further customer momentum while delivering strong growth in Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow in 2016.

Branded postpaid net customer additions for the full-year 2016 are now expected to be between 3.7 and 3.9 million, an increase from the previous guidance range of 3.4 to 3.8 million.

T-Mobile is not able to forecast net income on a forward looking basis without unreasonable efforts due to the high variability and difficulty in predicting certain items that affect GAAP net income including, but not limited to, income tax expense, stock based compensation expense, interest expense and interest income.

For the full-year 2016, T-Mobile now expects Adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $10.2 to $10.4 billion, raising and narrowing the previous guidance range of $9.8 to $10.1 billion. This guidance includes the aggregate net impact from

leasing and Data Stash, now expected to be approximately $1.0 to $1.1 billion, and $0.8 billion related to spectrum gains recognized in the first nine months of 2016.

Cash capital expenditures for the full-year 2016 are expected to be in the range of $4.5 to $4.7 billion, narrowing the previous guidance range of $4.5 to $4.8 billion.

Stock-based compensation includes payroll tax impacts and may not agree to stock based compensation expense in the condensed consolidated financial statements.

Adjusted EBITDA - Earnings before interest expense, net of interest income, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense, non-cash stock-based compensation and certain expenses not reflective of T-Mobile's ongoing operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA margin represents Adjusted EBITDA divided by service revenues. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure utilized by T-Mobile's management to monitor the financial performance of its operations. T-Mobile uses Adjusted EBITDA internally as a metric to evaluate and compensate its personnel and management for their performance, and as a benchmark to evaluate T-Mobile's operating performance in comparison to its competitors. Management believes analysts and investors use Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to evaluate overall operating performance and facilitate comparisons with other wireless communications companies because it is indicative of T-Mobile's ongoing operating performance and trends by excluding the impact of interest expense from financing, non-cash depreciation and amortization from capital investments as well as non-cash stock-based compensation and certain other nonrecurring expenses. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for income from operations, net income, or any other measure of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP.

Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) - Average monthly service revenue earned from customers. Service revenues for the specified period divided by the average customers during the period, further divided by the number of months in the period.

Branded postpaid phone ARPU excludes mobile broadband customers and related revenues.

Average Billings per User (ABPU) - Average monthly branded postpaid service revenue earned from customers plus monthly EIP billings and lease revenues divided by the average branded postpaid customers during the period, further divided by the number of months in the period. T-Mobile believes branded postpaid ABPU is indicative of estimated cash collections, including device financing payments, from T-Mobile's postpaid customers each month.

CUSTOMER METRICS
Branded Postpaid Customers
Branded postpaid phone net customer additions were 851,000 in the third quarter of 2016, compared to 646,000 in the second quarter of 2016 and 843,000 in the third quarter of 2015. T-Mobile expects to again lead the industry in branded postpaid phone net customer additions for the 11th consecutive quarter.
The sequential increase was primarily due to the introduction of the T-Mobile ONE plans, the launch of the iPhone 7 in the quarter and an increase in branded prepaid customer migrations to postpaid plans.
The year-over-year increase was primarily due to an increase in branded prepaid customer migrations to postpaid plans and lower churn.
Branded postpaid mobile broadband net customer additions were 118,000 in the third quarter of 2016, compared to 244,000 in the second quarter of 2016 and 242,000 in the third quarter of 2015.
Branded postpaid net customer additions were 969,000 in the third quarter of 2016 compared to 890,000 in the second quarter of 2016 and 1,085,000 in the third quarter of 2015.
Branded postpaid phone churn was 1.32% in the third quarter of 2016, up 5 basis points from 1.27% in the second quarter of 2016 and down 14 basis points from 1.46% in the third quarter of 2015.
On September 1, 2016, T-Mobile sold its marketing and distribution rights to certain existing T-Mobile co-branded customers to a current MVNO partner for nominal consideration. The sale resulted in a re-categorization of 1.365 million branded postpaid phone customers and 326,000 branded prepaid customers to wholesale customers (the "MVNO Transaction"). The reported branded postpaid phone churn of 1.32% in the third quarter of 2016 reflects the transfer of the MVNO Transaction customers prospectively from September 1, 2016.
The sequential increase in reported branded postpaid phone churn reflects typical seasonality, partially offset by the MVNO Transaction. Year-over-year, branded postpaid phone churn was lower as a result of the MVNO Transaction as well as increased customer satisfaction and loyalty from ongoing improvements to network quality, customer service, and the overall value of the Company's offerings in the marketplace.
On a pro-forma basis, had the MVNO Transaction closed on July 1, 2016, reported branded postpaid phone churn would have been 1.20% in the third quarter of 2016.

Branded Prepaid Customers
Branded prepaid net customer additions were 684,000 in the third quarter of 2016, compared to 476,000 in the second quarter of 2016 and 595,000 in the third quarter of 2015. This marked the second best quarterly branded prepaid net customer additions performance in T-Mobile's history. The sequential and year-over-year increase was primarily driven by successful MetroPCS promotional activities and continued growth in new markets, partially offset by branded prepaid customer migrations to branded postpaid plans.
Migrations to branded postpaid plans reduced branded prepaid net customer additions in the third quarter of 2016 by approximately 250,000, up from 210,000 in the second quarter of 2016 and 185,000 in the third quarter of 2015.
Branded prepaid churn was 3.82% in the third quarter of 2016, compared to 3.91% in the second quarter of 2016 and 4.09% in the third quarter of 2015. The sequential and year-over-year decline was primarily impacted by a decrease in certain customers, which had a higher rate of branded prepaid churn, as well as strong performance of the MetroPCS brand.




 
Total Branded Customers
Total branded net customer additions were 1,653,000 in the third quarter of 2016 compared to 1,366,000 in the second quarter of 2016 and 1,680,000 in the third quarter of 2015. This was the 11th consecutive quarter in which branded net customer additions surpassed the one million milestone.

T-Mobile Coverage Map
(as of September 30, 2016)

36357689_tmus09302016coveragemapv3.jpg

 
NETWORK
Network Modernization Update
T-Mobile has built the nation’s densest, highest-capacity LTE network, with more spectrum and cell sites per customer than either Verizon or AT&T. T-Mobile is also leading the industry in technology advancements such as Voice over LTE ("VoLTE"), Carrier Aggregation, 4x4 MIMO, and 256 Quadrature Amplitude Modulation ("QAM") to continue to improve the network performance for all of its customers.
T-Mobile continues to expand its coverage breadth and currently provides 4G LTE coverage to 312 million people, up from zero 4G LTE coverage just over three years ago. T-Mobile now has effective population coverage parity with Verizon, reaching 99.7% of the consumers Verizon does with 4G LTE.
T-Mobile is also improving its coverage depth with Wideband LTE, which is available nationwide, covering 231 million people. Wideband LTE refers to markets that have bandwidth of at least 15+15 MHz dedicated to 4G LTE.
VoLTE comprised approximately 61% of total voice calls in the third quarter of 2016 compared to 16% in the third quarter of 2015. Moving voice traffic to VoLTE frees up capacity and allows for an accelerated re-farming of spectrum currently used for 2G and 3G. T-Mobile is leading the US wireless industry in terms of VoLTE migration.
Carrier aggregation is live for T-Mobile customers in 535 cities. This advanced technology delivers superior speed and performance by bonding two or three discrete spectrum channels together.
4x4 MIMO is currently available in 319 cities. This technology effectively delivers twice the speed to customers by doubling the number of data paths between the cell site and a customer's device.
256 QAM will be extended to nearly every cell site in the T-Mobile network later this month. This technology increases the number of bits delivered per transmission to enable faster speed.

(Band, in MHz)
36357689_tmus09302016_chart-32087.jpg
 
Network Speed
T-Mobile continues to have the fastest nationwide 4G LTE network in the U.S. based on both download and upload speeds from millions of user-generated tests. This is the eleventh consecutive quarter that T-Mobile has led the industry in both average download speeds and average upload speeds.
In the third quarter of 2016, T-Mobile’s average 4G LTE download speed was 22.8 Mbps compared to Verizon at 22.5 Mbps, AT&T at 21.8 Mbps, and Sprint at 15.8 Mbps.
In the third quarter of 2016, T-Mobile's average 4G LTE upload speed was 11.8 Mbps compared to Verizon at 8.1 Mbps, AT&T at 7.3 Mbps, and Sprint at 4.7 Mbps.



Spectrum
At the end of the third quarter of 2016, T-Mobile owns or has agreements to own an average of 86 MHz of spectrum across the top 25 markets in the U.S. The spectrum is comprised of an average of 12 MHz in the 700 MHz band, 30 MHz in the 1900 MHz PCS band, and 44 MHz in the AWS band.
During the third quarter of 2016, T-Mobile closed on several previously announced transactions that increased its low-band spectrum holdings to 260 million POPs, including the cities of Nashville, Salt Lake City, and Columbus. T-Mobile expects to close on additional previously announced transactions, including Chicago and Eastern Montana, in the fourth quarter of 2016, bringing its total low-band spectrum holdings to 272 million POPs upon closing.

A-Block Update
T-Mobile owns or has agreements to acquire 700 MHz A-Block spectrum covering 272 million people or approximately 84% of the U.S. population. The spectrum covers all of the top 10 market areas and 29 of the top 30 market areas in the U.S.
T-Mobile has deployed its 700 MHz A-Block spectrum in 366 market areas covering more than 225 million people under the brand name “Extended Range LTE.” Extended Range LTE travels up to twice as far as mid-band spectrum and works up to four times better in buildings. T-Mobile expects to continue to aggressively roll-out new 700 MHz sites in 2016 including Phoenix, San Diego, and Las Vegas.

During the quarter ended and subsequent to September 30, 2016, a handset Original Equipment Manufacturer (“OEM”) announced recalls on certain of its smartphone devices. As a result, T-Mobile recorded no revenue associated with the device sales to customers and impaired the devices to their
net realizable value. The OEM has agreed to reimburse T-Mobile for these costs.
Device unit volumes in the third quarter of 2016 reflect the reversal of all the recalled devices sold or leased during the period.

DEVICE FINANCING
Equipment Installment Plans (EIP)
T-Mobile provided $1.372 billion in gross EIP device financing to its customers in the third quarter of 2016, down 12.2% from $1.562 billion in the second quarter of 2016 and up 23.9% from $1.107 billion in the third quarter of 2015. The sequential decrease was primarily due to a lower average gross amount financed per device on EIP, partially offset by a higher number of device sales under the EIP program. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to a higher level of device sales under the EIP program in the third quarter of 2016.
Customers on T-Mobile plans had associated EIP billings of $1.394 billion in the third quarter of 2016, up 3.7% compared to $1.344 billion in the second quarter of 2016 and down 1.1% from $1.409 billion in the third quarter of 2015. The sequential increase was primarily due to a higher level of devices financed using EIP plans. The year-over-year decline was primarily due to the impact of the JUMP! On Demand leasing program launched at the end of the second quarter 2015.
Total EIP receivables, net of imputed discount and allowances for credit losses, was $2.508 billion at the end of the third quarter of 2016 compared to $2.662 billion at the end of the second quarter of 2016 and $4.771 billion at the end of the third quarter of 2015. The sequential decline in the total EIP receivables, net was primarily due to continued growth in EIP billings as well as a decline in the gross amount of equipment financed on EIP during the quarter. The year-over-year decline in the total EIP receivables, net was primarily due to sales of certain EIP receivables and the impact of the JUMP!

REVENUES
Service Revenues
T-Mobile is expected to once again lead the industry in year-over-year service revenue percentage growth in the third quarter of 2016. This would mark the tenth consecutive quarter that T-Mobile has led the industry in year-over-year service revenue percentage growth.
Service revenues were $7.133 billion in the third quarter of 2016, up 3.6% from $6.888 billion in the second quarter of 2016 and up 13.2% from $6.302 billion in the third quarter of 2015.
Sequentially, the increase in service revenues was primarily due to growth in the Company’s customer base from the continued success of T-Mobile’s Un-carrier initiatives and T-Mobile's prepaid brands, strong customer response to promotional activities targeting families, the introduction of the new T-Mobile ONE rate plans and a sequentially lower non-cash net revenue deferral from Data Stash, which totaled $59 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared to $88 million in the second quarter of 2016.
Year-over-year, the increase in service revenues was primarily due to growth in T-Mobile's branded customer base from the continued success of T-Mobile’s Un-carrier initiatives and T-Mobile's prepaid brands, strong customer response to promotional activities targeting families and growth in insurance revenues. These increases were partially offset by a higher non-cash net revenue deferral from Data Stash, which totaled $59 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared to $3 million in the third quarter of 2015.

Equipment Revenues
Equipment revenues were $1.948 billion in the third quarter of 2016, down 11.0% from $2.188 billion in the second quarter of 2016 and up 37.6% from $1.416 billion in the third quarter of 2015. Equipment revenues in the third quarter of 2016 were comprised of lease revenues of $353 million and non-lease revenues of $1.595 billion.
Sequentially, the decrease in equipment revenues was primarily due to promotional activity in the period. One promotion, which ran from September 9th through September 25th, 2016, allowed customers to trade-in a fully paid-off iPhone 6 or 6s to receive a new iPhone 7 for $0 per month as long as they remained a customer. Under this offer, the equipment revenue recognized in that transaction was the trade-in value of the received iPhone, which was typically lower than the equipment revenue that would be recognized under a traditional EIP sale. This decrease was partially offset by a higher level of device units sold in the quarter.
Year-over-year, the increase in equipment revenues was primarily due to an increase in lease revenues and a higher number of devices sold.

Total Revenues
T-Mobile expects to once again lead the industry in year-over-year total revenue percentage growth in the third quarter of 2016. This would mark the 13th time in the past fourteen quarters that T-Mobile has led the industry in year-over-year total revenue percentage growth.
Total revenues were $9.246 billion in the third quarter of 2016, up 0.3% from $9.222 billion in the second quarter of 2016 and up 17.8% from $7.849 billion in the third quarter of 2015.
Sequentially, the slight increase in total revenues was primarily due to an increase in service revenues in the third quarter of 2016, partially offset by a decrease in equipment revenues.
Year-over-year, the increase in total revenues was primarily due to higher service revenues from growth in the customer base and higher equipment revenues.

Cost of Services
Cost of services was $1.436 billion in the third quarter of 2016, up 0.5% from $1.429 billion in the second quarter of 2016 and up 4.2% from $1.378 billion in the third quarter of 2015. Sequentially, cost of services remained generally stable. Year-over-year, the increase in cost of services was primarily due to higher regulatory program costs, network expansion, 700 MHz A-Block build-out and higher employee related costs, partially offset by synergies realized from the decommissioning of the MetroPCS CDMA network and lower long distance and toll costs. As a percentage of service revenues, cost of service declined by 180 basis points year-over-year.

Cost of Equipment Sales
Cost of equipment sales was $2.539 billion in the third quarter of 2016, down 3.1% from $2.619 billion in the second quarter of 2016 and up 27.9% from $1.985 billion in the third quarter of 2015.
Sequentially, the decrease in cost of equipment sales was primarily due to a decrease in the average cost per device sold, partially offset by a higher level of device units sold in the quarter.
Year-over-year, the increase was primarily driven by an increase in the number of devices sold as well as a higher average cost per device sold.
 
Selling, General and Admin. (SG&A) Expense
SG&A expense were $2.898 billion in the third quarter of 2016, up 4.5% from $2.772 billion in the second quarter of 2016 and up 10.4% from $2.624 billion in the third quarter of 2015.
Sequentially, the increase in SG&A expense was primarily due to higher branded customer additions and strategic investments to support growing the customer base including higher employee-related expenses and promotional costs.

Depreciation and Amortization (D&A)
D&A was $1.568 billion in the third quarter of 2016, down 0.4% from $1.575 billion in the second quarter of 2016 and up 35.5% from $1.157 billion in the third quarter of 2015. D&A in the third quarter of 2016 was comprised of device lease-related D&A of $367 million and non-device lease-related D&A of $1.201 billion.
Sequentially, the slight decrease in D&A was primarily due to a decrease in D&A expense related to leased devices which declined to $367 million in the third quarter of 2016 from $397 million in the second quarter of 2016. D&A not related to leased devices increased primarily due to the continued build-out of T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network.
Year-over-year, the increase was primarily due to the impact of leasing under our JUMP! On Demand Program, which was launched at the end of the second quarter of 2015. D&A related to leased devices was $367 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared to $58 million in the third quarter of 2015. Under leasing, the cost of the leased device is recognized as depreciation expense over the term of the lease rather than recognized as cost of equipment sales when the device is delivered to the customer. The total number of devices under lease was higher year-over-year, resulting in higher depreciation expense. Additionally, non lease-related D&A increased primarily due to the continued build-out of the Company's 4G LTE network.

Earnings per share was $0.42 in the third quarter of 2016 compared to earnings per share of $0.25 in the second quarter of 2016 and $0.15 in the third quarter of 2015. The after-tax impact of spectrum gains on EPS in the third quarter of 2016 was $0.15.




16



















 
Sequentially, the increases in net income and earnings per share were primarily due to higher service revenues, gains on disposal of spectrum licenses, and lower cost of equipment sales. These increases were partially offset by lower equipment revenues, higher SG&A expense from strategic investments to support growing the customer base, and higher income tax expense.
Year-over-year, the increases in net income and EPS resulted primarily from higher service and equipment revenues due to growth in the customer base and the spectrum gains, partially offset by higher operating and non-operating expenses. The increase in operating expenses resulted from a rise in cost of equipment due to an increase in devices sold and average cost per device, increased SG&A expense due to strategic investments to support growing the customer base, and higher D&A expense related to leased devices and the build-out of the LTE network. The increase in non-operating expenses was due primarily to higher income tax and interest expense.
Net income as a percentage of service revenues was 5.1% in the third quarter of 2016 compared to 2.2% in the third quarter of 2015.

Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2016 included a pre-tax gain of $199 million from spectrum license transactions.
Sequentially, the increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to higher service revenues from growth in the customer base, spectrum gains and lower cost of equipment sales. These increases were partially offset by an increase in losses on equipment and higher SG&A expense due to strategic investments to support growing the customer base.
Year-over-year, the increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to higher service revenues from growth in the customer base, spectrum gains, focused cost control and synergies realized from the MetroPCS business combination. These increases were partially offset by higher SG&A expense from strategic investments to support growing the customer base.

Adjusted EBITDA margin was 37% in the third quarter of 2016 compared to 36% in the second quarter of 2016 and 30% in the third quarter of 2015. Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated as Adjusted EBITDA divided by service revenues. Excluding the spectrum gains, Adjusted EBITDA margin was 34% in the third quarter of 2016 compared to 36% in the second quarter of 2016 and 30% in the third quarter of 2015.
The aggregate net impact from leasing and Data Stash on Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2016 was $294 million. Lease revenues were $353 million and the net impact from Data Stash was $59 million in the third quarter of 2016.

GUIDANCE
T-Mobile expects to drive further customer momentum while delivering strong growth in Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow in 2016.
Branded postpaid net customer additions for the full-year 2016 are now expected to be between 3.7 and 3.9 million, an increase from the previous guidance range of 3.4 to 3.8 million.
T-Mobile is not able to forecast net income on a forward looking basis without unreasonable efforts due to the high variability and difficulty in predicting certain items that affect GAAP net income including, but not limited to, income tax expense, stock based compensation expense, interest expense and interest income.
For the full-year 2016, T-Mobile now expects Adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $10.2 to $10.4 billion, raising and narrowing the previous guidance range of $9.8 to $10.1 billion. This guidance includes the aggregate net impact from leasing and Data Stash, now expected to be approximately $1.0 to $1.1 billion, and $0.8 billion related to spectrum gains recognized in the first nine months of 2016.
Cash capital expenditures for the full-year 2016 are expected to be in the range of $4.5 to $4.7 billion, narrowing the previous guidance range of $4.5 to $4.8 billion.
