Gogo Announces Third Quarter 2014 Results


Record quarterly revenue up 22 percent to $104 million

ITASCA, Ill., Nov. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gogo Inc. (Nasdaq: GOGO), a leading global aero communications service provider, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2014.

GogoLOGO.

Gogo reported record third quarter revenue of $104.0 million, up 22% year-over-year.  Adjusted EBITDA for Q3 2014 was $1.2 million, down from $2.0 million in Q3 2013, reflecting continued revenue and profitability growth in the combined CA-NA and BA segments offset by increased investment in CA-ROW. Net loss attributable to common stock for Q3 2014 was $24.9 million, or $0.29 per share, compared to $18.7 million, or $0.22 per share, in Q3 2013.

"We had another strong quarter as we announced airline partnerships with Virgin Atlantic and Vietnam Airlines, signed agreements with Air Canada and AeroMexico, and in October, announced that we expanded our partnership with United Airlines to include its regional jet fleet. Furthermore, we delivered our first $100 million revenue quarter and took major steps towards monetizing everyone on the plane by launching our wireless entertainment and text messaging solutions," said Gogo's President and CEO, Michael Small. "We are also extremely pleased that our next generation 2Ku global satellite connectivity technology has already gained significant traction in the market, with long-term commitments from two airlines and plans to conduct trials on three others. With our technology leadership, scale, operational expertise, and broad suite of communication solutions, Gogo is well positioned for long-term growth," added Mr. Small.

Third Quarter 2014 Consolidated Financial Results

  • Revenue increased to $104.0 million, up 22% from $85.4 million in Q3 2013. Service revenue increased 28% to $81.6 million and equipment revenue increased 4% to $22.4 million year-over-year.
  • Combined segment profit of CA-NA and BA for Q3 2014 increased to $20.5 million, up 57% from $13.0 million in Q3 2013, driven by strong service revenue growth in both segments and improved operating leverage in CA-NA. Combined segment profit of CA-NA and BA as a percentage of those segments' combined revenue increased to 20% for Q3 2014, up from 15% for Q3 2013.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for Q3 2014 was $1.2 million, down slightly from $2.0 million for Q3 2013, as a result of increased investment in CA-ROW.
  • Cash CAPEX, see below "Definition of Non-GAAP Measures", increased to $29.8 million from $24.5 million in Q3 2013, driven by the build-out of our new BA headquarters and the purchase of our new test plane.
  • As of September 30, 2014, Gogo had cash and cash equivalents of $243.2 million.

Third Quarter 2014 Business Segment Financial Results

  • Commercial Aviation - North America (CA-NA)
    • We ended the quarter with 2,044 aircraft online, up 33 from 2,011 at September 30, 2013. Compared to June 30, 2014, the number of aircraft online at September 30, 2014 was down 14 due to de-installations of aircraft retired by some of our airline partners.
    • Average monthly service revenue per aircraft online (ARPA) increased to $10,134, up 22% from $8,338 in Q3 2013, driven by a 7% increase in take rate to 6.2% and an 8% increase in average revenue per session (ARPS) to $11.43 as a result of price increases and changes in product mix.
    • Total revenue increased to $63.3 million, up 25% from $50.6 million in Q3 2013.
    • Segment profit increased to $5.5 million, up $7.1 million from a segment loss of $1.6 million in Q3 2013, due to strong service revenue growth and improved operating leverage. Segment profit as a percentage of segment revenue was 9% in Q3 2014.

 

  • Business Aviation (BA)
    • We ended the quarter with 2,637 ATG systems online, up 43% from 1,847 at September 30, 2013, and 5,322 satellite systems online, up 4% from 5,127 at September 30, 2013.
    • Service revenue increased to $18.9 million, up 38% from $13.7 million in Q3 2013, driven by an increase in ATG and satellite systems online and higher average monthly service revenue per aircraft online for both ATG and satellite service.
    • Equipment revenue increased to $21.4 million, up $0.3 million from $21.1 million in Q3 2013, as higher satellite and Universal Cabin System equipment revenue was partially offset by lower ATG equipment revenue.
    • Total revenue increased to $40.2 million, up 16% from $34.8 million in Q3 2013.
    • Segment profit increased to $15.0 million, up 2% from $14.6 million in Q3 2013, while segment profit as a percentage of segment revenue decreased to 37% in Q3 2014, down from 42% in Q3 2013. Segment profit was impacted by a write-off of obsolete inventory related to legacy satellite systems, changes in product mix, and higher expense related to the development of our next generation technologies.

 

  • Commercial Aviation - Rest of World (CA-ROW)
    • We ended the quarter with 35 aircraft online versus 19 aircraft online at June 30, 2014, as we continued to expand our Ku-band satellite connectivity service on Delta and JAL. We expect to end 2014 near the midpoint of our previous guidance of 50 to 100 CA-ROW aircraft online.
    • Segment loss increased to $19.4 million from a segment loss of $11.0 million in Q3 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.

Recent Developments

  • Virgin Atlantic became our first European airline partner and selected 2Ku as the connectivity solution for its fleet.
  • 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 will be trialing our 2Ku solution on five of their Premium Service aircraft.
  • We launched "Delta Studio" with Delta Air Lines, a custom wireless in-flight entertainment product leveraging the Gogo Vision platform, to offer a unique in-flight entertainment experience to Delta passengers.
  • We signed a definitive agreement with AeroMexico to provide in-flight internet and wireless inflight entertainment service on at least 58 aircraft, of which at least 20 will be equipped with our 2Ku technology.
  • We signed a definitive agreement with Air Canada to provide in-flight connectivity on its entire North American fleet.
  • Vietnam Airlines selected Gogo to provide in-flight connectivity to its Boeing 787 fleet of aircraft and a majority of their Airbus A350 aircraft, a partnership that further builds our Asian franchise.
  • Gogo and T-Mobile entered into a contract to provide free in-flight texting to T-Mobile customers on commercial flights across the U.S.
  • We received STCs from the FAA to install our Ku-band satellite technology on Boeing 757-200 and 767-400 aircraft operated by Delta Air Lines, bringing our total STCs for international aircraft to nine.
  • Gogo Business Aviation, formerly known as Aircell, partnered with Dassault to provide a factory approved solution to help Falcon operators comply with emerging FANS (Future Air Navigation System) mandates.

Business Outlook

For the full year ending on December 31, 2014, overall guidance for total revenue and Adjusted EBITDA remains unchanged. We expect total revenue of $400 million to $422 million and full year Adjusted EBITDA at the low end of the range of $8 million to $18 million. We now expect Cash CAPEX of $100 million to $120 million, down $5 million from previous guidance.

"Our strong revenue growth coupled with the multiple wins across geographies, technologies, and product offerings give us great momentum heading into the fourth quarter and next year. We are building a truly global business and investing for future growth. We are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead as we execute on our mission to be the trusted aero-communications service provider to the global aviation industry," commented Mr. Small.

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.

  • Aircraft online. We define aircraft online as the total number of commercial aircraft on which our ATG network equipment is installed and Gogo service has been made commercially available as of the last day of each period presented.
  • 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, Gogo Signature Services 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 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 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" in our 2013 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 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 September 30, 2014 under our current capital structure, after giving effect to the initial public offering and the corresponding conversion of shares of preferred stock outstanding.  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.
