RigNet Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 Earnings Results

  • Quarterly revenue of $52.8 million consisting of:
    -- Managed Services revenue of $47.2 million,
    -- Systems Integration and Automation (SI&A) revenue of $5.6 million
  • Quarterly GAAP Net Loss attributable to common stockholders of $3.8 million, $0.21 per share
  • Quarterly Adjusted EBITDA of $9.4 million
  • Quarterly Unlevered Free Cash Flow of $5.7 million after capital expenditures of $3.7 million

HOUSTON, March 06, 2017 (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 and full year ended December 31, 2016.

Quarterly revenue was $52.8 million representing an increase of $2.1 million compared to the prior quarter and an increase of $0.6 million compared to the prior year quarter. The revenue increase compared to the prior quarter was primarily due to a $2.2 million increase in SI&A revenue. The increase compared to the prior year quarter resulted primarily from SI&A revenue, which increased $10.5 million, partially offset by a $9.9 million decrease in Managed Services revenue. The increase in SI&A revenue was due to the timing of SI&A projects. Managed Services continues to be challenged by 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 $3.8 million, or $0.21 per share, compared to net loss attributable to common stockholders of $1.7 million, or $0.09 per share, in the prior quarter and net loss attributable to common stockholders of $11.0 million, or $0.63 per share, in the prior year quarter.

Quarterly Adjusted EBITDA was $9.4 million compared to $8.5 million in the prior quarter and a negative $3.2 million in the prior year quarter. The increase compared to the prior quarter and prior year quarter was due primarily to increased revenue coupled with savings from cost containment actions.

Capital expenditures were $3.7 million compared to $1.9 million in the prior quarter and $10.5 million in the prior year quarter. Unlevered Free Cash Flow, defined as Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures, was $5.7 million compared to $6.6 million in the prior quarter and a negative $13.7 million in the prior year quarter.

In the quarter ended December 31, 2016, the Company recorded $0.6 million of restructuring charges, and recorded $2.3 million of revenue and $1.5 million of cost for equipment sales to a certain customer. 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 December 31, 2015, the Company recorded total negative adjustments of $15.6 million related to the SI&A contractual dispute, a $1.7 million impairment of property, plant and equipment in our North America land operations, and incurred $1.0 million of executive departure costs. The restructuring charges, change in fair value of the TECNOR earn-out, and the impairment of property, plant and equipment, and executive departure costs 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 offshore oil and gas market, we are pleased with the progress we have made related to cost containment and capex management, which produced Unlevered Free Cash Flow of $5.7 million for the 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."
