Gilat Announces Third Quarter 2014 Results

PETAH TIKVA, Israel, Nov. 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. (Nasdaq:GILT) (TASE:GILT), a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions and services, today reported its results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2014.

Key Financial Highlights:

  • Revenues for the third quarter increased to $57.1 million compared to $51.8 million in the third quarter of 2013
  • Non-GAAP operating income was $3.6 million, compared to an operating loss of $0.3 million in the comparable quarter of 2013
  • GAAP operating income was $1.5 million as compared to an operating loss of $2.4 million in the same period last year
  • EBITDA for the third quarter was $6.4 million compared to $3.9 million in the second quarter of 2014 and to $2.3 million in the comparable period in 2013.
  • 2014 management objectives update: higher EBIDTA margins of about 10% expected for the year, despite slightly lower expected revenues of about $235 million.

Revenues for the third quarter of 2014 were $57.1 million, compared to $54.1 million in the second quarter of 2014 and to $51.8 million in the third quarter of 2013. The difference is mostly attributed to the increase in revenues in our Services division and Defense and Mobility division. The MINTIC project in Colombia, which started to bring in revenues in the second and third quarters, is expected to generate increased revenues in the fourth quarter. We expect to also generate increased revenues from the IAL project in Peru, which began generating revenues in the third quarter.

On a non-GAAP basis, operating income was $3.6 million in the third quarter as compared to operating income of $1.5 million in the second quarter of 2014 and an operating loss of $0.3 million in the comparable quarter of 2013. On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the quarter was $3.0 million or an income of $0.07 per diluted share compared to $0.6 million or $0.01 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2014 and to a net loss of $1.0 million or $0.02 per diluted share in the comparable period in 2013.

GAAP operating income for the third quarter was $1.5 million as compared to an operating loss of $0.5 million in the second quarter of 2014 and $2.4 million in the comparable period in 2013. GAAP net income from continuing operations for the quarter was $0.9 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to a net loss from continuing operations of $1.4 million, or a loss of $0.03 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2014 and a net loss from continuing operations of $3.0 million, or a loss of $0.07 per diluted share, in the comparable period in 2013.

EBITDA for the third quarter was $6.4 million compared to $3.9 million in the second quarter of 2014 and to $2.3 million in the comparable period in 2013.

Erez Antebi, Chief Executive Officer of Gilat, stated, "Our improved results in the third quarter come from both of our Services division and Defense and Mobility division, as well as from the cost-reduction measures we undertook last year. Our Defense and Mobility business continued to grow. We believe we hold a significant competitive advantage in the On-The-Pause and On-The-Move markets when it comes to small-sized, light-weight, low-power terminals."

Antebi added: "As to our 2014 management objectives, we believe that Gilat will reach higher profitability than what was mentioned previously with EBIDTA margins of about 10% for the year, although revenues are expected to be slightly lower, at a level of approximately $235 million."

Notes:

(1) The attached summary financial statements were prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). The attached summary financial statements are unaudited. To supplement the consolidated financial information and statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company presents its EBITDA before the impact of non-cash stock based compensation, depreciation and amortization, other income and other costs related to acquisition transactions. Non-GAAP presentations of net income, EBITDA and earnings per share are provided to enhance the understanding of the Company's historical financial performance and comparability between periods.

We regularly use supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand manage and evaluate our business and make operating decisions. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide consistent and comparable measures to help investors understand our current and future operating cash flow performance. These non-GAAP financial measures may differ materially from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.

(2) Operating income before depreciation, amortization, non-cash stock based compensation as per ASC 718 and other costs related to acquisition transactions ('EBITDA') is presented because it is a measure commonly used and is presented solely in order to improve the understanding of the Company's operating results and to provide further perspective on these results. EBITDA, however, should not be considered as an alternative to operating income or net income for the period as an indicator of the operating performance of the Company.

Similarly, EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures for other companies. EBITDA may not be indicative of the historic operating results of the Company; nor is it meant to be predictive of potential future results. . A reconciliation of specific adjustments to GAAP results is provided in the tables below.
