GogoLOGO.

Second Quarter 2017 Consolidated Financial Results

  • Revenue increased to $172.8 million, up 17% from Q2 2016. Service revenue increased to $154.1 million, up 21% from Q2 2016, on a 9% increase in commercial aircraft online to 3,109, a 17% increase in ATG business aircraft online to 4,453, and increased customer usage across all segments.
  • Net loss increased to $44.2 million, a 10% increase from Q2 2016, and Adjusted EBITDA(1) decreased to $9.9 million, down 31% from Q2 2016. Both net loss and Adjusted EBITDA in Q2 2017 included $14.0 million in increased costs related to the launch of 2Ku service for new and existing airline partners, OEM 2Ku programs, and costs associated with the development of Gogo's next generation ATG solution.
  • Capital expenditures increased to $74.1 million from $47.6 million in Q2 2016. Cash CapEx(1) increased to $65.6 million from $39.8 million in Q2 2016 due to an increase in success-based airborne equipment purchases in advance of heavy 2Ku installations in the second half of 2017.

"We launched 2Ku service on five new airlines in the quarter and are on plan to meet our targeted increase in installations during the second half of the year," said Michael Small, Gogo's President and CEO. "While these installs require up-front investment, they will all produce positive returns in the future."

"Our planned increase in investments in the second quarter lay the foundation for future growth in revenue and profitability," said Barry Rowan, Gogo's Executive Vice President and CFO. "We expect Adjusted EBITDA to increase substantially in the second half of 2017 and into 2018, and we are on track to generate positive free cash flow in 2019."

Second Quarter 2017 Business Segment Financial Results

Commercial Aviation - North America (CA-NA)

CA-NA connectivity take rate rose more than 20% in the quarter, increasing ARPA to more than $141,000 on an annualized basis.

  • Aircraft online reached 2,791, up 195 aircraft from Q2 2016. As of June 30, 2017, CA-NA had approximately 740 aircraft awarded for installation or conversion to 2Ku, 60 of which are net new aircraft.
  • Total revenue increased to $101.0 million, up 9% from Q2 2016, primarily driven by higher aircraft online.
  • Segment profit decreased to $16.2 million, down 13% from Q2 2016, primarily due to costs associated with launching 2Ku service and the development of its next generation ATG solution. Segment profit as a percentage of segment revenue was 16% in Q2 2017, down from 20% in Q2 2016.

Commercial Aviation - Rest of World (CA-ROW)

CA-ROW revenue doubled year-over-year for the second consecutive quarter and ARPA grew 56% to more than $226,000 on an annualized basis as passenger demand continued to grow.

  • Aircraft online reached 318, up 69 aircraft from Q2 2016. CA-ROW had approximately 620 net new 2Ku awarded but not yet installed aircraft as of June 30, 2017.
  • Total revenue increased to $14.1 million, up 145% from Q2 2016, driven primarily by higher ARPA and an increase in aircraft online.
  • Segment loss increased to $31.4 million from $23.3 million in Q2 2016, as a result of launching 2Ku service on several new airline partners and advancing OEM programs.

Business Aviation (BA)

BA service revenue grew 30% with segment profit increasing 33% and segment profit margin expanding to 44%. This growth demonstrates the continued strong demand for Gogo's ATG systems and services in the large and growing market opportunity of more than 20,000 North American business and turboprop aircraft.

  • Service revenue increased to $42.2 million, up 30% from Q2 2016, driven primarily by a 17% increase in ATG systems online and a 14% increase in average monthly service revenue per ATG unit online.
  • Equipment revenue decreased to $15.6 million, down $1.1 million from Q2 2016.
  • Total segment revenue increased to $57.8 million, up 18% from Q2 2016.
  • Segment profit increased to $25.2 million, up 33% from Q2 2016. Segment profit as a percentage of segment revenue was 44% in Q2 2017, up from 39% in Q2 2016, on an increased mix of higher margin service revenue and lower engineering, design and development expenses.

Recent Developments

  • Launched 2Ku service on five airlines: Air Canada Rouge, British Airways, JTA, Virgin Atlantic, and Virgin Australia.
  • The first OEM installation of 2Ku on an Airbus A350 has been completed and is ready for delivery to Delta.
  • Next generation ATG achieved speeds of 134Mbps in the lab and remains on track for its expected deployment in 2018, and Gogo introduced a new satellite modem capable of delivering more than 16 times the throughput of the existing satellite modem.
  • BA launched its connected aircraft services platform, introduced new Smart Cabin Services (SCS) and partnered with Rockwell Collins to deliver real-time moving maps for its customers via the newly launched platform.

Business Outlook

Gogo reaffirms all 2017 and long-term guidance previously provided in the fourth quarter 2016 earnings press release. The Company expects:

  • 2017 2Ku installations of 450 to 550 aircraft, including approximately 150 in CA-ROW.
  • Total revenue at the high end of guidance range of $670 million to $695 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA at the low end of guidance range of $60 million to $75 million, as a result of investments in launching 2Ku service for new and existing airline partners, OEM programs, and development of Gogo's next generation ATG solution. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to increase substantially in the second half of 2017 and in 2018.
  • Gross capital expenditures of $290 million to $330 million and Cash CapEx of $230 million to $260 million, of which approximately 70% is related to success-based airborne equipment purchases.

(1) See Non-GAAP Financial Measures below

Conference Call

The second quarter conference call will be held on August 7th, 2017 at 8:30 a.m. ET. A live webcast of the conference call, as well as a replay, will be available online on the Investor Relations section of the company's website at http://ir.gogoair.com. Participants can also access the call by dialing (844) 464-3940 (within the United States and Canada) or (765) 507-2646 (international dialers) and entering conference ID number 54679937.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report certain non-GAAP financial measurements, including Adjusted EBITDA 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. 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 and Cash CapEx are not recognized measurements under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP, and when analyzing our performance with Adjusted EBITDA or liquidity with Cash CapEx, 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 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. No reconciliation of the forecasted range for Adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2017 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. In particular, we are not able to provide a reconciliation for the forecasted range of Adjusted EBITDA due to variability in the timing of aircraft installations and deinstallations impacting depreciation expense and amortization of deferred airborne leasing proceeds.

our use of open source software and licenses; the effects of service interruptions or delays, technology failures and equipment failures or malfunctions arising from defects or errors in our software or defects in or damage to our equipment; the limited operating history of our CA-ROW segment; contract changes and implementation issues resulting from decisions by airlines to transition from the retail model to the airline directed model; increases in our projected capital expenditures due to, among other things, unexpected costs incurred in connection with the roll-out of our technology roadmap or our international expansion; compliance with U.S. and foreign government regulations and standards, including those related to regulation of the Internet, including e-commerce or online video distribution changes, and the installation and operation of satellite equipment and our ability to obtain and maintain all necessary regulatory approvals to install and operate our equipment in the United States and foreign jurisdictions; our, or our technology suppliers', inability to effectively innovate; costs associated with defending pending or future intellectual property infringement and other litigation or claims; our ability to protect our intellectual property; breaches of the security of our information technology network, resulting in unauthorized access to our customers' credit card information or other personal information; any negative outcome or effects of future litigation; our substantial indebtedness; limitations and restrictions in the agreements governing our indebtedness and our ability to service our indebtedness; our ability to obtain additional financing on acceptable terms or at all; fluctuations in our operating results; our ability to attract and retain customers and to capitalize on revenue from our platform; the demand for and market acceptance of our products and services; changes or developments in the regulations that apply to us, our business and our industry, including changes or developments affecting the ability of passengers or airlines to use our in-flight connectivity services, including the recent U.S. and U.K. bans on the use of certain personal devices such as laptops and tablets on certain aircraft flying certain routes; a future act or threat of terrorism, cyber-security attack or other events that could result in adverse regulatory changes or developments as referenced above, or otherwise adversely affect our business and industry; our ability to attract and retain qualified employees, including key personnel; the effectiveness of our marketing and advertising and our ability to maintain and enhance our brands; our ability to manage our growth in a cost-effective manner and integrate and manage acquisitions; compliance with anti-corruption laws and regulations in the jurisdictions in which we operate, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the (U.K.) Bribery Act 2010; restrictions on the ability of U.S. companies to do business in foreign countries, including, among others, restrictions imposed by the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control; difficulties in collecting accounts receivable; our ability to successfully implement our new enterprise resource planning system and other improvements to systems and procedures needed to support our growth.

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, 2016 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 27, 2017 and in our quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 as filed with the SEC on May 4, 2017.

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

  • Aircraft online. We define aircraft online as the total number of commercial aircraft on which our equipment is installed and service has been made commercially available as of the last day of each period presented.  We assign aircraft to CA-NA or CA-ROW at the time of contract signing as follows: (i) all aircraft operated by North American airlines and under contract for ATG or ATG-4 service are assigned to CA-NA, (ii) all aircraft operated by North American airlines and under a contract for satellite service are assigned to CA-NA or CA-ROW based on whether the routes flown by such aircraft under the contract are anticipated to be predominantly within or outside of North America at the time the contract is signed, and (iii) all aircraft operated by non-North American airlines and under a contract are assigned to CA-ROW.
  • Aircraft equivalents. We define aircraft equivalents for a segment as the total number of commercial aircraft online (as defined above) multiplied by the percentage of flights flown by such aircraft within the scope of that segment, rounded to the nearest whole aircraft and expressed as an average of the month end figures for each month in the period.  This methodology takes into account the fact that during a particular period certain aircraft may fly routes outside the scope of the segment to which they are assigned for purposes of the calculation of aircraft online.
  • Average monthly service revenue per aircraft equivalent ("ARPA").  We define ARPA for a segment as the aggregate service revenue plus monthly service fees, some of which are reported as a reduction to cost of service revenue for that segment for the period divided by the number of months in the period, and further divided by the number of aircraft equivalents (as defined above) for that segment during the 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 at any time during the period presented. When actual passenger counts are available directly from our airline partners, we aggregate such 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 is 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 any available 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, (ii) amortization of deferred airborne lease incentives (iii) loss on extinguishment of debt and (iv) adjustment of deferred 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.

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 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 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 14, "Business Segments and Major Customers," for a description of segment profit (loss) in our unaudited condensed 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 2016 10-K 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 the loss on extinguishment of debt and adjustment of deferred financing costs from Adjusted EBITDA because of the non-recurring nature of these charges.

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.

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.
