Gogo Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2014 Results


Record quarterly revenue up 18 percent to $109.2 million

ITASCA, Ill., Feb. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Gogo Inc. (Nasdaq: GOGO), a leading global aero communications service provider, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014.

GogoLOGO.

Gogo reported record fourth quarter revenue of $109.2 million, up 18% year-over-year, as service revenue for the quarter increased 29% to $89.7 million. CA-NA and BA combined segment profit for Q4 2014 was a record $24.3 million, up 72% year-over-year.  Q4 2014 Adjusted EBITDA, which reflects the investment we are making to grow our CA-ROW business, was $1.2 million, up from negative $0.3 million in Q4 2013.  

Revenue for full year 2014 was a record $408.5 million, up 24% over 2013, as service revenue increased 29% to $322.7 million. CA-NA and BA combined segment profit of $89 million was also a record for the Company. Gogo's combined CA-NA and BA segment profit was up 80% year-over-year.  Adjusted EBITDA for 2014, which reflects the investment we are making to grow our CA-ROW business, was $10.8 million, up 29% from 2013.

"We are very pleased with the financial and operating performance we delivered in Q4 and full year 2014, as we continued to see strong demand for our connectivity and wireless entertainment products and services across business segments," said Gogo's President and CEO, Michael Small. "With approximately 9,000 aircraft online, representing approximately 20 percent of global aircraft, Gogo has the largest number of connected aircraft in the world. Furthermore, our record number of more than 1,000 commercial aircraft awarded but not yet installed demonstrates global airlines' growing recognition of Gogo's industry-leading technologies and operational  capabilities, which we believe position us well for continued long-term growth," added Mr. Small.

Q4 2014 Consolidated Financial Results

  • Revenue increased to $109.2 million, up 18% from $92.6 million in Q4 2013, driven by a 29% increase in service revenue to $89.7 million.  Service revenue accounted for more than 82% of the Company's revenue in the quarter. 
  • Combined segment profit of CA-NA and BA for Q4 2014 increased to $24.3 million, up 72% from $14.1 million in Q4 2013. Combined segment profit of CA-NA and BA as a percentage of those segments' combined revenue increased to 22% for Q4 2014, up from 15% for Q4 2013.
  • Adjusted EBITDA, which reflects the investment we are making to grow our CA-ROW business, was $1.2 million, up from negative $0.3 million in Q4 2013.
  • Cash CAPEX was $12.5 million, down 48% from $23.9 million in Q4 2013, as a result of increased airborne equipment proceeds received from our airline partners.
  • As of December 31, 2014, Gogo had cash and cash equivalents of $211.2 million.

Q4 2014 Business Segment Financial Results

  • Commercial Aviation - North America (CA-NA)
    • Revenue increased to $68.3 million, up 23% from $55.4 million in Q4 2013.
    • We ended the quarter with 2,098 aircraft online, up 3% from 2,032 at December 31, 2013.
    • Average monthly service revenue per aircraft online, or ARPA, increased to $10,914, up 22% from $8,970 in Q4 2013, driven by increases in connectivity, wireless entertainment services, and other service revenue.
    • Segment profit increased to $8.2 million, up $10.2 million from a segment loss of $2.0 million in Q4 2013, due to strong revenue growth and improved operating leverage. Segment profit as a percentage of segment revenue was 12% in Q4 2014.
  • Business Aviation (BA)
    • Service revenue increased to $20.3 million, up 35% from $15.0 million in Q4 2013, and for the first time exceeded equipment revenue. Service revenue growth was driven primarily by an increase in ATG systems online and higher average ATG monthly service revenue per aircraft online.
    • We ended the quarter with 2,797 ATG systems online, up 37% from 2,047 at December 31, 2013, and 5,377 satellite systems online, up 4% from 5,175 at December 31, 2013.
    • Equipment revenue of $19.4 million was down from $22.1 million in Q4 2013, primarily due to a decrease in ATG and satellite units shipped.
    • Total revenue increased to $39.7 million, up 7% from $37.1 million in Q4 2013.
    • Segment profit of $16.1 million was unchanged from Q4 2013. Segment profit as a percentage of segment revenue was 41% in Q4 2014, down from 43% in Q4 2013. Segment profit margin was impacted by changes in product mix and higher expense related to the development of our next generation technologies.
  • Commercial Aviation - Rest of World (CA-ROW)
    • Our expansion internationally and build out of our CA-ROW business continued to progress in Q4 2014. In December 2014, we signed a definitive agreement with Virgin Atlantic Airlines to provide internet connectivity using our next generation global satellite solution, 2Ku.
    • We received the final required Supplemental Type Certificate ("STC") from the FAA to complete the installation of Ku-band satellite based connectivity on Delta's international fleet.
    • Our near-global Ku-band connectivity service is operational, and is capable of providing peak speeds of up to 50 Mbps to an aircraft.
    • We added 50 aircraft to end the quarter with 85 aircraft online with Ku-band service. In 2015, we expect to bring approximately 125 additional aircraft online with Ku-band service.
    • Our 2Ku solution has now been selected for either trial or adoption by six leading airlines and is on track to be commercially deployed by the end of 2015. We expect 2Ku to provide peak speeds to the aircraft of up to 70 Mbps when commercially deployed and to reach peak speeds of up to 100 Mbps following the introduction of spot beam Ku-band satellites.
    • In Q4, CA-ROW total revenue increased to $1.3 million, up $1.2 million from Q4 2013. Segment loss increased to $23.1 million from a segment loss of $14.4 million in Q4 2013, due primarily to increased satellite transponder and teleport fees and expenses related to the development and certification of our next generation products and technologies.

Full Year 2014 Consolidated Financial Results

  • Revenue increased to $408.5 million, up 24% from $328.1 million in 2013. Service revenue increased 29% to $322.7 million and equipment revenue increased 10% to $85.7 million year-over-year.
    • CA-NA revenue increased to $250.8 million, up 26% from $199.1 million in 2013.
    • BA revenue increased to $155.6 million, up 22% from $127.5 million in 2013.
    • CA-ROW revenue increased to $2.1 million from $1.6 million in 2013.
  • Combined segment profit of CA-NA and BA for 2014 increased to $89.0 million, up 80% from $49.4 million in 2013. Combined segment profit of CA-NA and BA as a percentage of those segments' combined revenue increased to 22% for 2014, up from 15% for 2013.
  • Adjusted EBITDA, which reflects the impact of the investment we are making to grow our CA-ROW business, was $10.8 million, up $2.4 million from $8.4 million in 2013.
  • Cash CAPEX decreased to $97.9 million, down 6% from $104.3 million in 2013.

Recent Developments

  • Delta Air Lines selected Gogo to provide 2Ku service on more than 250 existing mainline domestic aircraft and on new international aircraft when they enter its fleet.  
  • American Airlines selected Gogo to provide in-flight connectivity on nearly 250 of American's regional jet aircraft.
  • United Airlines selected Gogo to provide in-flight internet and wireless entertainment service on more than 200 of United's two-cabin regional jets and agreed to trial Gogo's 2Ku solution on five of their Premium Service aircraft.
  • Alaska Airlines launched Alaska Beyond Entertainment, its branded version of our next generation Gogo Vision technology, to provide passengers the ability to stream premium movies, TV shows and free exclusive content to their own devices.
  • We received an STC from the FAA to install our Ku-band satellite technology on Boeing 777-200ER aircraft operated by Delta Air Lines, which represented the final STC required to complete the installation of Ku-band satellite based connectivity on Delta's international fleet.
  • The FCC granted regulatory approval to Gogo to operate its 2Ku solution on up to 1,000 aircraft.

Business Outlook

For the full year ending December 31, 2015, we are providing the following guidance:

  • Total revenue of $490 million to $510 million, growth of 20% - 25% from 2014
    • CA-NA revenue of $300 million to $320 million, growth of 20% - 28% from 2014
    • BA revenue of $170 million to $180 million, growth of 9% - 16% from 2014
    • CA-ROW revenue of $15 million to $20 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $15 million to $25 million, growth of 39% - 131% from 2014
  • Cash CAPEX of $100 million to $120 million

"Our strong revenue growth and profitability performance in both the CA-NA and BA segments demonstrate our ability to leverage our operating infrastructure. We expect to see similar trends in our CA-ROW segment over time as both aircraft online and ARPA continue to grow fueled by the needs of the global aviation industry to connect not just the passenger but the crew and the aircraft itself," said Gogo's Executive Vice President and CFO Norman Smagley. "We are excited about our prospects as we continue to expand our global market share of connected aircraft, grow ARPA and leverage existing operating infrastructure across business segments and geographies," added Mr. Smagley.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report certain non-GAAP financial measurements, including Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Loss, Adjusted Net Loss Per Share and Cash CAPEX in the supplemental tables below.  Management uses Adjusted EBITDA and Cash CAPEX for business planning purposes, including managing our business against internally projected results of operations and measuring our performance and liquidity. Management prepares Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted Net Loss Per Share for investors, securities analysts and other users of our financial statements for use in evaluating our performance under our current capital structure.  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 by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Loss, Adjusted Net Loss Per Share and Cash CAPEX are not recognized measurements under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP, and when analyzing our performance or liquidity, as applicable, investors should (i) evaluate each adjustment in our reconciliation to net loss attributable to common stock, and the explanatory footnotes regarding those adjustments, (ii) use Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted Net Loss Per Share in addition to, and not as an alternative to, net loss attributable to common stock as a measure of operating results, and (iii) use Cash CAPEX in addition to, and not as an alternative to, consolidated capital expenditures when evaluating our liquidity.

  • Average monthly service revenue per aircraft online ("ARPA").  We define ARPA as the aggregate service revenue for the period divided by the number of months in the period, divided by the number of aircraft online during the period (expressed as an average of the month end figures for each month in such period). 
  • Gross passenger opportunity ("GPO"). We define GPO as the estimated aggregate number of passengers who board commercial aircraft on which Gogo service has been available during the period presented. We calculate passenger estimates by taking the maximum capacity of flights with Gogo service, which is calculated by multiplying the number of flights flown by Gogo-equipped aircraft, as published by Air Radio Inc. (ARINC), by the number of seats on those aircraft, and adjusting the product by a passenger load factor for each airline, which represents the percentage of seats on aircraft that are occupied by passengers. Load factors are provided to us by our airline partners and are based on historical data.
  • Total average revenue per passenger opportunity ("ARPP"). We define ARPP as revenue from Gogo Connectivity, Gogo Vision, and other service revenue for the period, divided by GPO for the period.
  • Total average revenue per session ("ARPS"). We define ARPS as revenue from Gogo Connectivity, excluding non-session related revenue, divided by the total number of sessions during the period. A session, or a "use" of Gogo Connectivity, is defined as the use by a unique passenger of Gogo Connectivity on a flight segment. Multiple logins or purchases under the same user name during one flight segment count as only one session.
  • Connectivity take rate. We define connectivity take rate as the number of sessions during the period expressed as a percentage of GPO. Included in our connectivity take-rate calculation are sessions for which we did not receive revenue, including those provided pursuant to free promotional campaigns and, to a lesser extent, as a result of complimentary passes distributed by our customer service representatives or unforeseen technical issues. For the periods listed above, the number of sessions for which we did not receive revenue was less than 3% of the total number of sessions.

Definition of Non-GAAP Measures

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

Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA adjusted for (i) fair value derivative adjustments, (ii) preferred stock dividends, (iii) accretion of preferred stock, (iv) stock-based compensation expense, (v) amortization of deferred airborne lease incentives and (vi) write off of deferred equity financing costs. 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.

More specifically, we believe the exclusion of fair value derivative adjustments, Class A and Class B senior convertible preferred stock return and accretion of preferred stock from Adjusted EBITDA is appropriate because we do not believe such items are indicative of ongoing operating performance due to their non-recurring nature as a result of the conversion of all shares of preferred stock into shares of common stock upon consummation of our IPO in June 2013.

Additionally, we believe 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 as determined using the Black-Scholes model 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 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 the exclusion of the amortization of deferred airborne lease incentives from Adjusted EBITDA is useful as it allows an investor to view operating performance across time periods in a manner consistent with how management measures segment profit and loss (see Note 10 "Business Segments and Major Customers" for a description of segment profit (loss) in our consolidated financial statements). Management evaluates segment profit and loss in this manner, excluding the amortization of deferred airborne lease incentives, because such presentation reflects operating decisions and activities from the current period, without regard to the prior period decision or the form of connectivity agreements. See "—Key Components of Consolidated Statements of Operations—Cost of Service Revenue—Commercial Aviation North America" for a discussion of the accounting treatment of deferred airborne lease incentives.

We believe it is useful to an understanding of our operating performance to exclude write off of deferred equity financing costs from Adjusted EBITDA because of the non-recurring nature of this charge.

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 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 Net Loss represents net loss attributable to common stock before fair value derivative adjustments, Class A and Class B senior convertible preferred stock return and accretion of preferred stock. We present Adjusted Net Loss to eliminate the impact of such items because we do not consider those indicative of ongoing operating performance due to their non-recurring nature as a result of the conversion of all shares of preferred stock into shares of common stock in connection with our IPO in June 2013.

Adjusted Net Loss Per Share represents net loss attributable to common stock per share—basic and diluted, adjusted to reflect the number of shares of common stock outstanding as of December 31, 2014 under our current capital structure, after giving effect to the initial public offering and the corresponding conversion of shares of preferred stock outstanding in 2013.  We present Adjusted Net Loss Per Share to provide investors, securities analysts and other users of our financial statements with important supplemental information with which to evaluate our performance considering our current capital structure and the shares outstanding following our IPO on a consistent basis.

Cash CAPEX represents capital expenditures net of airborne equipment proceeds received from the airlines and incentives paid to us by landlords under certain facilities leases. We believe Cash CAPEX provides a more representative indication of our liquidity requirements with respect to capital expenditures, as under certain agreements with our airline partners we are reimbursed for all, or a substantial portion of the cost of our airborne equipment, thereby reducing our cash capital requirements.
