D & E Communications, Inc. (DECC) – An Opportunity for Investment

D & E Communications, Inc. (DECC), located in Ephrata, Pennsylvania is a provider of various communication services. The company offers high-speed data, internet access, local and long distance telephone service, IT services, network monitoring, security solutions, and video services.

In August 2007, the company announced that it would carry the Big Ten Network, a new national network launched that month dedicated exclusively to Big Ten Conference television programming. Dave Moore, vice president of marketing, believes the network will be an instant hit with Penn State fans in the area.

“We’re really very pleased that our customers will be able to get the Big Ten Network from the beginning,” said Moore. “State College is obviously Big Ten country, and I expect the Big Ten Network to become a popular destination very, very quickly.”

For the third quarter of 2007, the company reported improvements in operating and net incomes compared to the same quarter in 2006. However, operating revenues showed a slight decrease due to a decline in directory revenue, the result of the renegotiation of a contract with the directory publisher.

“I am pleased with the progress that we are making in growing our broadband connections, the number of subscribers in our CLEC markets and in the improving financial performance of our Systems Integration segment,” said James W. Morozzi, President and CEO of D&E Communications.
