Windstream logged revenues of $1.54 billion, up from $1.21 billion. The company’s operating income was $172 million, up from $96 million.

Analysts had predicted revenues of $1.55 billion and earnings of 13 cents a share for the quarter.

Windstream’s total costs and expenses for the quarter were $1.37 billion, up from $1.11 billion a year ago.

For 2012, the company reported net income of $168 million, or 28 cents a share, down from $170 million, or 32 cents a share, in 2011. Revenues for 2012 were $6.16 billion, up from $4.28 billion.

“We made significant progress on key initiatives in 2012 that will further strengthen our business going forward,” said Jeffery Gardner, president and CEO of Windstream, in a statement. “I am particularly proud of our team's accomplishments in navigating the multiyear impact of regulatory reform and evolving consumer preferences while maintaining solid operating cash flow.”

Shares of Windstream stock (NasdaqGS: WIN) were trading Tuesday midday at $9, up 7 cents from Friday’s close.
