Sprint Corporation has reported results for the fiscal year 2019 third quarter, including stability in postpaid wireless service revenue and continued growth in postpaid net additions. The company also reported a net loss of $120 million, operating income of $66 million, and adjusted EBITDA of $2.5 billion. Sprint CEO Michel Combes said "I continue to be impressed by the commitment of Sprint employees to deliver results during this period of uncertainty. As we await a decision in the state attorneys general lawsuit, I continue to believe the merger with T-Mobile is the best way to deliver the benefits of competition to American consumers."

Postpaid wireless service revenue of $4.2 billion remained stable sequentially and year-over-year as Sprint continued to focus on promoting its feature-rich Unlimited Plus and Unlimited Premium rate plans, selling additional data devices, and being more selective in its acquisition of postpaid phone customers. Postpaid net additions of 494,000 and average postpaid accounts of 11.3 million improved sequentially and year-over-year, while postpaid ARPA of $124.80 remained stable.

Total wireless service revenue of $5.2 billion was negatively impacted by the continued amortization of prepaid contract balances as a result of adopting the new revenue standard last year, while the year-ago period included Lifeline revenue related to federal and state government subsidies claimed as a result of an inadvertent coding error. Adjusting for these impacts, total wireless service revenue was stable year-over-year and sequentially.

The company continued its focus on cost optimization during the quarter by driving year-over-year gross reductions in cost of services and selling, general and administrative expenses, with most of the reductions coming from network optimization. These reductions have been offset by incremental costs associated with network coverage and capacity improvements, along with other customer experience initiatives.
