Cinci Bell revenue up, charges hurt profit

Following recent moves to acquire two other firms, Cincinnati Bell posted revenue for the fourth quarter of 2007 at $360 million, or about 10% higher than the same quarter of 2006. Net income for the quarter was burdened by a $38 million restructuring charge, and came in at about $700,000, or a loss of 1 cent per share. The company also announced a $150 million share buyback program. Coming quarters in 2008 should show the effect of the acquisitions of eGix and GramTel USA.
