"We are pleased with our second quarter results,” said Yona Ovadia, CEO of Gilat. "We continue to make progress with our strategy across all segments, especially in In-Flight Connectivity (IFC) and broadband networks."

Mr. Ovadia continued: "Gilat's five-pillar strategy is focused on winning the markets unlocked by the global demand for broadband and the increasingly-abundant HTS capacity, based on our advanced solutions and our ongoing investment in technological innovation.

“Indeed, this quarter we are pleased to announce a significant win in broadband networks, one of our growth pillars. The recent choice of our X-Architecture for UK-based EE's (Everything Everywhere) LTE network testifies to our leadership in this area. This win adds to our momentum in cellular backhaul that began with our success with SoftBank earlier in the year. With these achievements, Gilat is solidifying its leadership in the markets of satellite backhauling for LTE cellular networks and broadband access services.

"Looking forward, we are reiterating our management objectives for full year 2016: revenues of $290 to $310 million and EBITDA of between $18 to $24 million. These objectives represent a sizeable stepping up of revenues and a target of positive operating income in the second half of 2016, based on our strong backlog in Peru and China as well as additional revenues from projects won as part of our strategy, and despite a challenging business environment in Latin America.”

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 statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company presents Gilat's EBITDA before the impact of non-cash share-based payment charges, depreciation and amortization, other income and other costs related to acquisition transactions. Non-GAAP presentations of net income, operating income, EBITDA and earnings per share are provided to enhance the understanding of the Company's historical financial performance and comparability between periods.

(2) Operating income before depreciation, amortization, non-cash stock option expenses as per ASC 718 (formerly SFAS 123(R)) 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. Reconciliation between the Company's Operating income and EBITDA is presented in the attached summary financial statements.
