Gogo reported record fourth quarter revenue of $137.8 million, up 26% year-over-year, as service revenue for the quarter increased 29% to $115.9 million. Q4 2015 Adjusted EBITDA increased to $8.0 million, up 556% or $6.8 million year-over-year.

Revenue for the full year 2015 was a record $500.9 million, up 23% over 2014, as service revenue for the year increased 30% to $420 million. Adjusted EBITDA for 2015 increased to $36.8 million, up 240% from 2014.

"In 2015, we became a half billion dollar revenue business and installed nearly 1,900 broadband and wireless entertainment systems. We also grew the number of awarded aircraft for 2Ku, our next generation global satellite technology, to over 800," said Gogo's President and CEO, Michael Small. "Our industry leading technology, open architecture, operational excellence and products and services position Gogo extremely well in the growing global aviation in-flight connectivity industry," added Mr. Small.

Fourth Quarter 2015 Consolidated Financial Results

  • Revenue increased to $137.8 million, up 26% from $109.2 million in Q4 2014.  Service revenue increased to $115.9 million, up 29% from $89.7 million in Q4 2014.

  • Adjusted EBITDA increased to $8.0 million, up 556% or $6.8 million from $1.2 million in Q4 2014.
  • Cash CAPEX of $13.3 million was up slightly from $12.5 million in Q4 2014 but lower than expected as certain expenditures for airborne equipment to support the 2Ku installation ramp-up shifted to 2016.
  • As of December 31, 2015, we had cash and cash equivalents of $366.8 million.

Fourth Quarter 2015 Business Segment Financial Results

Commercial Aviation - North America (CA-NA)

  • Total revenue increased to $84.0 million, up 23% from $68.3 million in Q4 2014.
  • During the quarter, we installed 128 aircraft and aircraft online increased by 75 to 2,387. In addition, we had approximately 280 awarded but not yet installed aircraft as of December 31, 2015.
  • Average monthly service revenue per aircraft online, or ARPA, increased to $11,721, up 7% year-over-year, driven primarily by connectivity service price increases. ARPA increased an estimated 20% year-over-year excluding the impact of regional jets we have been installing since the end of 2014.
  • Segment profit increased to $9.2 million, up 13% from $8.2 million in Q4 2014. Segment profit as a percent of segment revenue was 11% in Q4 2015.

Business Aviation (BA)

  • Service revenue increased to $28.5 million, up 41% from $20.3 million in Q4 2014, driven primarily by a 24% increase in ATG systems online to 3,477 at December 31, 2015 compared to 2,797 at December 31, 2014.
  • Equipment revenue increased to $21.1 million, up 9% from $19.4 million in Q4 2014, driven primarily by an increase in ATG and satellite units shipped.

  • Segment profit increased to $19.4 million, up 20% from $16.1 million in Q4 2014. Segment profit as a percentage of segment revenue was 39% in Q4 2015.

Commercial Aviation - Rest of World (CA-ROW)

  • As of December 31, 2015, we had 202 aircraft flying on our global Ku satellite network. Including the recent 2Ku aircraft awards for unannounced airlines, we now have more than 450 awarded but not yet installed aircraft largely comprised of our next generation global satellite technology, 2Ku.
  • Revenue increased to $4.2 million, up 232% from $1.3 million in Q4 2014.
  • Segment loss decreased to $20.2 million, down 12% from $23.1 million in Q4 2014, due primarily to higher revenue from more aircraft online.

2Ku Progress Update

  • In October 2015, we received a Supplemental Type Certificate, or STC, from the Federal Aviation Administration to install our 2Ku satellite technology on Boeing 737-800 aircraft operated by Aeromexico.
  • As of December 31, 2015, we had 15 STC programs underway covering installation of more than 450 awarded aircraft.
  • 2Ku awarded but not yet installed or upgraded aircraft increased to more than 800 aircraft in part due to the recent aircraft awards for unannounced airlines.
  • We expect to install approximately 75 aircraft with 2Ku during 2016 as we complete required certifications. We expect to install more than 300 aircraft with 2Ku in 2017.

Full Year 2015 Consolidated Financial and Operating Results

  • We added nearly 1,100 broadband aircraft online across our business segments.
  • We added Gogo Vision, our wireless entertainment product, on nearly 500 commercial aircraft.
  • Revenue increased to $500.9 million, up 23% from $408.5 million in 2014, and service revenue increased 30% to $420 million.

  • Adjusted EBITDA increased to $36.8 million, up 240% from $10.8 million in 2014.
  • Cash CAPEX decreased to $80 million, down 18% from $97.9 million in 2014, primarily as a result of lower spending on the network and a shift in airborne expenditures to support the 2Ku installation ramp-up to 2016.

Recent Developments

  • Gogo signed a landmark multi-GHz capacity deal with SES that will provide capacity over North America, Central America and the Caribbean on SES' high throughput satellites (HTS), with such satellites expected to be launched in 2017. This is one of the largest aviation-dedicated satellite capacity deals ever and will significantly increase Gogo's network capacity.
  • Gogo introduced a text messaging pass, thus providing a low cost option for airline passengers who want to stay connected in-flight.
  • BA partnered with several leading industry players to bring the connected cockpit to business aviation through a variety of flight planning, datalink, graphical cockpit and weather information, and concierge services.
  • BA announced the introduction of a new high capacity connectivity technology, Gogo Biz 4G, which will enable passengers to stream video and audio and is expected to launch in 2017.

Business Outlook

For the full year ending December 31, 2016, we are providing the following guidance:

  • In-flight connectivity installations:
    • CA-NA  net installations of more than 200 aircraft including more than 400 ATG-4 installations and upgrades
    • CA-ROW net installations of approximately 75 aircraft in 2016 and more than 200 in 2017
    • 2Ku installations of approximately 75 in 2016 and more than 300 aircraft in 2017
  • Total revenue of $575 million to $595 million, growth of 15% – 19% from 2015
    • CA-NA revenue of $350 million to $365 million
    • BA revenue of $190 million to $205 million
    • CA-ROW revenue of $25 million to $30 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $55 million to $65 million, growth of 50% – 77% from 2015
  • Cash CAPEX of $110 million to $135 million, which includes a $15 million carryover from 2015, as a result of shift in airborne expenditures to support the 2Ku installation ramp-up in 2016.

"We look forward to continuing to deliver strong growth in revenue and profitability in 2016. We are excited about our prospects as we deploy 2Ku, our proprietary, and disruptive, global satellite connectivity technology, and accelerate the pace of ATG-4 installations," said Gogo's Executive Vice President and CFO, Norman Smagley. "We believe that we are well positioned to continue to expand our global market share and extend our lead as the largest connectivity and wireless in-flight entertainment provider in the industry," added Mr. Smagley.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report certain non-GAAP financial measurements, including Adjusted EBITDA, 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 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 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 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 plus monthly service fees included as a reduction to cost of 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 aggregate number of passengers who board commercial aircraft on which Gogo service has been available during the period presented. When available directly from our airline partners, we aggregate actual passenger counts across flights on Gogo-equipped aircraft.  When not available directly from our airline partners, we estimate GPO.  Estimated GPO is calculated by first estimating the number of flights occurring on each Gogo-equipped aircraft, then multiplying by the number of seats on that aircraft, and finally multiplying by a seat factor that is determined from historical information provided to us in arrears by our airline partners.  The estimated number of flights are derived from real-time flight information provided to our front-end systems by Air Radio Inc. (ARINC), direct airline feeds and supplementary third-party data sources.  These aircraft-level estimates are then aggregated with actual airline-provided passenger counts to obtain total GPO.
  • Total average revenue per session ("ARPS"). We define ARPS as revenue from Passenger Connectivity, excluding non-session related revenue, divided by the total number of sessions during the period. A session, or a "use" of Passenger Connectivity, is defined as the use by a unique passenger of Passenger 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 for unforeseen technical issues. For the periods listed above, the number of sessions for which we did not receive revenue was not material.

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) stock-based compensation expense and (ii) amortization of deferred airborne lease incentives. 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 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 are 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 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 and Rest of World" in our 2015 Form 10-K for a discussion of the accounting treatment of deferred airborne lease incentives.

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 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, 2015 under our current capital structure, after giving effect to the shares of our common stock effectively repurchased as part of the Forward Transactions entered into in connection with the issuance of the Convertible Notes in March 2015.  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 after giving effect to the Forward Transactions.

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.
