RigNet Announces Third Quarter 2016 Earnings Results

  • Quarterly revenue of $50.6 million consisting of:
    • Managed Services revenue of $47.2 million,
    • Telecoms Systems Integration (TSI) revenue of $3.4 million
  • Quarterly GAAP Net Loss attributable to common stockholders of $1.7 million, $0.09 per share

  • Quarterly Adjusted EBITDA of $8.5 million

  • Quarterly Unlevered Free Cash Flow of $6.6 million after capital expenditures of $1.9 million

HOUSTON, Nov. 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RigNet, Inc. (NASDAQ:RNET), a leading global provider of customized systems and solutions serving customers with complex data networking and operational requirements, today reported results for the quarter ended September 30, 2016.

Quarterly revenue was $50.6 million representing a decrease of $4.3 million compared to the prior quarter and a decrease of $15.7 million compared to the prior year quarter. The revenue decrease compared to the prior quarter was primarily due to a $3.0 million decrease in Managed Services revenue (which consists of our Eastern and Western Hemisphere reporting segments) coupled with a $1.3 million decrease in TSI revenue. The decrease compared to the prior year quarter resulted primarily from Managed Services revenue, which decreased $13.6 million, coupled with a $2.1 million decrease in TSI revenue. These decreases were primarily due to reduced spending by oil and gas operators on upstream drilling projects as a result of lower commodity prices.

GAAP net loss attributable to common stockholders was $1.7 million, or $0.09 per share, compared to $4.8 million, or $0.27 per share, in the prior quarter and $10.9 million, or $0.62 per share, in the prior year quarter.

Quarterly Adjusted EBITDA was $8.5 million compared to $8.6 million in the prior quarter and $14.5 million in the prior year quarter. The decrease resulted primarily from lower revenue partially offset by savings generated from cost containment actions.

Capital expenditures were $1.9 million compared to $4.7 million in the prior quarter and $6.1 million in the prior year quarter. Unlevered Free Cash Flow, defined as Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures was $6.6 million compared to $4.0 million in the prior quarter and $8.4 million in the prior year quarter.

In the quarter ended September 30, 2016, the Company recorded net restructuring charges of $0.8 million offset by $1.3 million from the change in the fair value of the TECNOR earn-out. In the quarter ended June 30, 2016, the Company recorded restructuring charges of $1.1 million, $0.4 million of impairment of intangible assets, $0.2 million of CEO search costs and ERP implementation costs of $0.6 million. In the quarter ended September 30, 2015, the Company recorded a $12.6 million charge related to impairment of goodwill and intangible assets in our North America land operations and incurred $1.3 million of restructuring charges. The restructuring charges, change in fair value of the TECNOR earn-out, and the impairment of goodwill and intangibles are added back to net loss in our non-GAAP measures below.

Steven E. Pickett, chief executive officer and president, commented, "Despite continued headwinds in the energy market, we are pleased with the progress we have made related to cost containment and capex management, which helped improve our Unlevered Free Cash Flow to $6.6 million for this quarter. We remain focused on continuing implementation of initiatives to improve operating leverage of the Company, developing a broad range of SaaS and cyber security solutions for our customers, and growing our business in new vertical markets."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains the following non-GAAP measures: Gross Profit (excluding depreciation and amortization), Adjusted EBITDA and Unlevered Free Cash Flow. Gross Profit (excluding depreciation and amortization), Adjusted EBITDA and Unlevered Free Cash Flow are financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. We refer you to the Company’s most recent 10-K filings for the year ended December 31, 2015 for a more detailed discussion of the uses and limitations of our non-GAAP financial measures.

GAAP defines gross profit as revenue less cost of revenue, and includes in costs of revenue depreciation and amortization expenses related to revenue-generating long-lived and intangible assets. We define Gross Profit (excluding depreciation and amortization) as revenue less cost of revenue (excluding depreciation and amortization). This measure differs from the GAAP definition of gross profit as we do not include the impact of depreciation and amortization expenses related to revenue-generating long-lived and intangible assets which represent non-cash expenses. We use this measure to evaluate operating margins and the effectiveness of cost management.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) plus interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization, impairment of goodwill, intangibles, property, plant and equipment, foreign exchange impact of intercompany financing activities, (gain) loss on retirement of property, plant and equipment, change in fair value of derivatives, stock-based compensation, merger/acquisition costs, executive departure costs, restructuring charges and non-recurring items. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss), operating income (loss) or any other measure of financial performance calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

We define Unlevered Free Cash Flow as Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures. Unlevered Free Cash Flow should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss), operating income (loss) or any other measure of financial performance calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.
