Gogo Announces Record Results And Updates 2022 Guidance'


(MENAFN- PR Newswire)

Second Quarter Revenue of $97.8 million, up 19% Year-over-Year; Net Income from Continuing Operations of $22.0 million; and Adjusted EBITDA (1) of $41.2 million, up 12% Year-over-Year

BROOMFIELD, Colo., Aug. 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Gogo Inc. (NASDAQ: GOGO ) ('Gogo' or the 'Company'), the world's largest provider of broadband connectivity services for the business aviation market, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Q2 2022 Highlights
  • Gogo announced its plans to launch the first low earth orbit ('LEO')-based global broadband service in business aviation ('Global Broadband') using an electronically steered antenna designed with Hughes Network Systems and a LEO satellite network operated by OneWeb.
  • Record total revenue of $97.8 million increased 19% compared to Q2 2021 fueled by strong growth in both service and equipment revenue.
    • Record service revenue of $73.1 million increased 13% compared to Q2 2021 and 3% compared to Q1 2022.
    • Equipment revenue of $24.8 million increased 41% compared to Q2 2021 and 12% compared to Q1 2022.
  • Total ATG aircraft online ('AOL') reached 6,654, an increase of 10% compared to Q2 2021 and 2% compared to Q1 2022.
    • Total AVANCE units online grew to 2,893, an increase of 40% compared to Q2 2021 and 7% compared to Q1 2022. AVANCE units comprised more than 43% of total AOL as of June 30, 2022, up from 34% as of June 30, 2021.
  • Average Monthly Revenue per ATG aircraft online ('ARPU') of $3,328 increased 1% compared to Q2 2021 and was flat versus Q1 2022.
  • Net income from continuing operations increased to $22.0 million compared to a net loss from continuing operations of $66.4 million in Q2 2021, primarily due to a loss on extinguishment of debt and settlement of convertible notes of $79.6 million recorded in Q2 2021.
    • Basic earnings per share from continuing operations in Q2 2022 was $0.18. Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations was $0.17.
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $41.2 million, which includes $1.2 million of expenses related to Global Broadband, increased 12% compared to Q2 2021 and decreased 4% compared to Q1 2022.
  • Cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations of $26.4 million in Q2 2022 increased from cash used in operating activities of $15.0 million in the prior year period primarily due to the timing of interest payments.
    • Free Cash Flow(1) was $15.5 million compared with negative $24.7 million in the prior year period due to the timing of interest payments partially offset by an increase in capital expenditures primarily tied to Gogo 5G.
    • Cash and cash equivalents totaled $164.0 million as of June 30, 2022 compared to $152.8 million as of March 31, 2022.

'Customer excitement is growing as we prepare for the launch of Gogo 5G, which will provide a 5-10x bandwidth improvement for current Gogo customers,' said Oakleigh Thorne, Chairman and CEO. 'With the announcement of our Global Broadband initiative, we continue to leverage our AVANCE platform to provide an easy upgrade path for aircraft of all sizes to further boost performance and expand our addressable market.'

'The strength of the BA market combined with solid execution drove record performance in the quarter, positioning us well for continuing revenue and Free Cash Flow growth,' said Barry Rowan, Gogo's Executive Vice President and CFO. 'Based on our continuing strong performance we are raising several key elements of our guidance, including 2022 revenue; 2022 Adjusted EBITDA at the high end of our range in spite of $9 million in strategic investments and litigation expenses; and our long-term revenue growth rate, based on the contribution from our Global Broadband initiative.'

Updated 2022 Financial Guidance

The Company updates its guidance for 2022 as follows:

  • Total revenue at the high end of the previously guided range of $390 million to $400 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) at the high end of the previously guided range of $150 million to $160 million, which includes a combined $9 million of estimated litigation expenses and estimated operating expenses for Global Broadband, which were not reflected in the initial 2022 guidance range.
  • Free Cash Flow(1) of $35 million to $45 million, which includes capital expenditures of approximately $65 million of which approximately $50 million are tied to Gogo 5G (no change to prior guidance).

(1) See 'Non-GAAP Financial Measures' below.

Updated Long-Term Financial Targets

The Company updates its long-term targets as follows:

  • Revenue growth at a compound annual growth rate of approximately 17% from 2021 through 2026, with Global Broadband contributing to revenue beginning in 2025 (versus prior target of approximately 15% which excluded Global Broadband).
  • Annual Adjusted EBITDA Margin(1) approaching 50% in 2026, up from the low 40%'s in 2022 and 2023 (no change to prior target).
  • Free Cash Flow(1) of approximately $110 million in 2023, reflecting $10 million of operating expenses tied to Global Broadband, and an aggregate $5 million of additional interest expense and legal expenses tied to the SmartSky litigation that were not included in the previously announced Free Cash Flow target of $125 million. The Company reiterates its target for Free Cash Flow of over $200 million beginning in 2025.

Free Cash Flow and Adjusted EBITDA in 2022 and 2023 do not reflect the potential impact of Gogo 5G timing.

The Company's 2022 financial guidance and long-term targets include Global Broadband but do not reflect the impact of other new strategic investments or the Federal Communications Commission's Secure and Trusted Communications Networks Reimbursement Program, as the Company awaits further information regarding whether Congress will appropriate additional funds for eligible expenditures under the Program.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report certain non-GAAP financial measurements, including Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow, in the supplemental tables below, and we refer to Adjusted EBITDA Margin in our discussion of long-term baseline targets above. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin and Free Cash Flow for business planning purposes, including managing our business against internally projected results of operations and measuring our performance and liquidity. These supplemental performance measures also provide another basis for comparing period-to-period results by excluding potential differences caused by non-operational and unusual or non-recurring items. These supplemental performance measurements may vary from and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin and Free Cash Flow are not recognized measurements under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP; when analyzing our performance with Adjusted EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA Margin or liquidity with Free Cash Flow, as applicable, investors should (i) evaluate each adjustment in our reconciliation to the corresponding GAAP measure, and the explanatory footnotes regarding those adjustments, (ii) use Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin in addition to, and not as an alternative to, net income (loss) attributable to common stock as a measure of operating results, and (iii) use Free Cash Flow in addition to, and not as an alternative to, consolidated net cash provided by (used in) operating activities when evaluating our liquidity. No reconciliation of the forecasted range for Adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2022, Adjusted EBITDA Margin for fiscal 2022, 2023 and 2026 and Free Cash Flow for fiscal 2023 and 2025 is included in this release because we are unable to quantify certain amounts that would be required to be included in the corresponding GAAP measure without unreasonable efforts and we believe such reconciliation would imply a degree of precision that would be confusing or misleading to investors.

Certain disclosures in this press release and related comments by our management include forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements regarding our business outlook, industry, business strategy, plans, goals and expectations concerning our market position, international expansion, future technologies, future operations, margins, profitability, future efficiencies, capital expenditures, liquidity and capital resources and other financial and operating information.

Forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations regarding future events, results or outcomes. These expectations may or may not be realized. Although we believe the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we can give you no assurance these expectations will prove to have been correct. Some of these expectations may be based upon assumptions, data or judgments that prove to be incorrect.

Additional information concerning these and other factors can be found under the caption 'Risk Factors' in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the 'SEC') on March 3, 2022 and in our quarterly reports on Form 10-Q as filed with the SEC on May 5, 2022 and August 5, 2022.

Our forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance, and you should not place undue reliance on them.

Definition of Non-GAAP Measures

EBITDA represents net income (loss) attributable to common stock before interest expense, interest income, income taxes and depreciation and amortization expense.

Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA adjusted for (i) stock-based compensation expense included in the results of continuing operations, (ii) the results of discontinued operations, including stock-based compensation expense, (iii) loss on extinguishment of debt and settlement of convertible notes and (iv) separation costs related to the sale of CA. Our management believes that the use of Adjusted EBITDA eliminates items that management believes have less bearing on our operating performance, thereby highlighting trends in our core business which may not otherwise be apparent. It also provides an assessment of controllable expenses, which are indicators management uses to determine whether current spending decisions need to be adjusted in order to meet financial goals and achieve optimal financial performance.

We believe that the exclusion of stock-based compensation expense from Adjusted EBITDA is appropriate given the significant variation in expense that can result from using the Black-Scholes model to determine the fair value of such compensation. The fair value of our stock options is determined using the Black-Scholes model and varies based on fluctuations in the assumptions used in this model, including inputs that are not necessarily directly related to the performance of our business, such as the expected volatility, the risk-free interest rate and the expected life of the options. Therefore, we believe that the exclusion of this cost provides a clearer view of the operating performance of our business. Further, stock option grants made at a certain price and point in time do not necessarily reflect how our business is performing at any particular time. While we believe that investors should have information about any dilutive effect of outstanding options and the cost of that compensation, we also believe that stockholders should have the ability to consider our performance using a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes these costs and that management uses to evaluate our business.

We believe it is useful for an understanding of our operating performance to exclude the results of our discontinued operations from Adjusted EBITDA because they are not part of our ongoing operations.

We believe it is useful for an understanding of our operating performance to exclude the loss on extinguishment of debt and settlement of convertible notes from Adjusted EBITDA because this activity is not related to our operating performance.

We believe it is useful for an understanding of our operating performance to exclude separation costs related to the sale of CA from Adjusted EBITDA for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2021 because of the non-recurring nature of this activity.

We also present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental performance measure because we believe that this measure provides investors, securities analysts and other users of our consolidated financial statements with important supplemental information with which to evaluate our performance and to enable them to assess our performance on the same basis as management.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin represents Adjusted EBITDA divided by total revenue. We present Adjusted EBITDA Margin as a supplemental performance measure because we believe that it provides meaningful information regarding our operating efficiency.

Free Cash Flow represents net cash provided by operating activities, less purchases of property and equipment, the acquisition of intangible assets and the cash flows associated with our interest rate caps. We believe that Free Cash Flow provides meaningful information regarding our liquidity.

To conform to current year presentation, we included the cash paid for our interest rate caps in Free Cash Flow for the three- and six- month periods ended June 30, 2021. We believe it is useful for an understanding of our liquidity to include the cash flows associated with interest rate caps to facilitate a more consistent comparison of net cash paid for interest and the interest rate changes for which we are hedged.
