REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

To the Stockholders and the Board of Directors of RigNet, Inc.

Opinion on the Financial Statements:

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of RigNet, Inc. and subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2018 and 2017, the related consolidated statements of comprehensive loss, cash flows, and equity for each of the three years in the period ended December 31, 2018, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the “financial statements”). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2018 and 2017, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended December 31, 2018, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

We have also audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (PCAOB), the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2018, based on criteria established in Internal Control — Integrated Framework (2013) issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission and our report dated March 15, 2019, (May 9, 2019, as to the effects of the material weakness described in Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting (as revised)), which report expressed an adverse opinion on the Company’s internal control over financial reporting because of a material weakness.

Basis for opinion:

These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s financial statements based on our audits. We are a public accounting firm registered with the PCAOB and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

To the Stockholders and the Board of Directors of RigNet, Inc.

Opinion on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

We have audited the internal control over financial reporting of RigNet, Inc. and subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2018, based on criteria established in Internal Control — Integrated Framework (2013) issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO). In our opinion, because of the effect of the material weakness identified below on the achievement of the objectives of the control criteria, the Company has not maintained effective internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2018, based on criteria established in Internal Control — Integrated Framework (2013) issued by COSO.

We have also audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (PCAOB), the consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2018, of the Company and our report dated March 15, 2019 (May 9, 2019, as to the matter described in Note 6 to the consolidated financial statements), expressed an unqualified opinion on those financial statements.

As described in Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting (as revised), management excluded from its assessment the internal control over financial reporting at Intelie Soluções Em Informática S.A (“Intelie”) and Automation Communications Engineering Corp. and Safety Controls, Inc. (collectively known as “AutoComm/SAFCON”), which was acquired on March 23, 2018 and April 18, 2018, respectively, and whose financial statements constitute 40% and 10% of net and total assets, respectively, 7% of revenues, and 3% of net loss of the consolidated financial statement amounts of the Company as of and for the year ended December 31, 2018. Accordingly, our audit did not include the internal control over financial reporting at Intelie or AutoComm/SAFCON.

Basis for Opinion

The Company’s management is responsible for maintaining effective internal control over financial reporting and for its assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting, included in the accompanying Management’s Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting (as revised). Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s internal control over financial reporting based on our audit. We are a public accounting firm registered with the PCAOB and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether effective internal control over financial reporting was maintained in all material respects. Our audit included obtaining an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, assessing the risk that a material weakness exists, testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk, and performing such other procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

Definition and Limitations of Internal Control over Financial Reporting

A company’s internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A company’s internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

F-3


Table of Contents

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

Material Weakness

A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the company’s annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. The following material weakness has been identified and included in management’s assessment:

The Company did not properly design and operate adequate internal control over monitoring compliance with financial covenants stipulated by the Company’s Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement.

This material weakness was considered in determining the nature, timing, and extent of audit tests applied in our audit of the consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2018, of the Company, and this report does not affect our report on such financial statements.

RIGNET, INC.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Note 1—Business and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Nature of Business

RigNet, Inc. (the Company or RigNet) is a global technology company that provides customized data and communications services. Customers use our private networks to manage information flows and execute mission-critical operations primarily in remote areas where conventional telecommunications infrastructure is either unreliable or unavailable. RigNet provides our clients what is often the sole means of communications for their remote operations. On top of and vertically integrated into these networks RigNet provides services ranging from fully-managed voice, data, and video to more advanced services including: cyber security threat detection and prevention; applications to improve crew welfare, safety or workforce productivity; and a real-time AI-backed data analytics platform to enhance customer decision making and business performance.

RigNet delivers advanced software, optimized industry solutions, and communications infrastructure that allow our customers to realize the business benefits of digital transformation. With world-class, ultra-secure solutions spanning global IP connectivity, bandwidth-optimized Over-The-Top (OTT) applications, Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) big data enablement, and industry-leading machine learning analytics, RigNet supports the full evolution of digital enablement, empowering businesses to respond faster to high priority issues, mitigate the risk of operational disruption, and maximize their overall financial performance.

Basis of Presentation

The Company presents its financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (U.S. GAAP).

The GX dispute and change in fair value of earn-out/contingent consideration are now presented as separate financial statement line items, and all historical data have been recast to conform to the current year presentation.

Principles of Consolidation and Reporting

The Company’s consolidated financial statements include the accounts of RigNet, Inc. and all subsidiaries thereof. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. As of December 31, 2018, 2017 and 2016, non-controlling interest of subsidiaries represents the outside economic ownership interest of Qatar, WLL of less than 3.0%.

Use of Estimates in Preparation of Financial Statements

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods, as well as certain financial statement disclosures. The estimates that are particularly significant to the financial statements include estimates related to the Company’s use of the percentage-of-completion method, as well as the Company’s valuation of goodwill, intangibles, stock-based compensation, litigation accruals, income tax valuation allowance and uncertain tax positions. While management believes that the estimates and assumptions used in the preparation of the financial statements are appropriate, future results could differ from these estimates. Further, volatile equity and energy markets combine to increase uncertainty in such estimates and assumptions. As such, estimates and assumptions are adjusted when facts and circumstances dictate, and any changes will be reflected in the financial statements in future periods.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents consist of cash on-hand and highly-liquid investments purchased with original maturities of three months or less.

RIGNET, INC.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS – (CONTINUED)

 

Restricted Cash

As of December 31, 2018 and 2017, the Company had restricted cash of $0.1 million and $1.5 million, in current and long-term assets, respectively. The restricted cash in long-term assets is primarily used to collateralize a performance bond in the MCS segment (see Note 6 – “Long-Term Debt”).

Accounts Receivable

Trade accounts receivable are recognized as customers are billed in accordance with customer contractual agreements. The Company reports an allowance for doubtful accounts for probable credit losses existing in accounts receivable. Management determines the allowance based on a review of currently outstanding receivables and the Company’s historical write-off experience. Individual receivables and balances which have been outstanding greater than 120 days are reviewed individually. Account balances, when determined to be uncollectible, are charged against the allowance.

Property, Plant and Equipment

Property, plant and equipment consists of (i) telecommunication and computer equipment, (ii) furniture and other office equipment, (iii) leasehold improvements, (iv) building and (v) land. All property, plant and equipment, excluding land, is depreciated and stated at acquisition cost net of accumulated depreciation. Depreciation is provided using the straight-line method over the expected useful lives of the respective assets, which range from one to ten years. The Company assesses the value of property, plant and equipment for impairment when the Company determines that events and circumstances indicate that the recorded carrying value may not be recoverable. An impairment is determined by comparing estimated future net undiscounted cash flows to the carrying value at the time of the assessment. No impairment to property, plant and equipment was recorded in the years ended December 31, 2018, 2017 or 2016.

Maintenance and repair costs are charged to expense when incurred.

Intangibles

Intangibles consist of customer relationships, covenants-not-to-compete, brand name, licenses, developed technology, and backlog acquired as part of the Company’s acquisitions. Intangibles also include internal-use software. The Company’s intangibles have useful lives ranging from 5.0 to 20.0 years and are amortized on a straight-line basis. The Company assesses the value of intangibles for impairment when the Company determines that events and circumstances indicate that the recorded carrying value may not be recoverable. An impairment is determined by comparing estimated future net undiscounted cash flows to the carrying value at the time of the assessment.

No impairment to intangibles was recorded in the years ended December 31, 2018 or 2017.

In June 2016, the Company identified a triggering event for a license in Kazakhstan associated with a decline in cash flow projections, which resulted in a $0.4 million impairment of licenses in the Corporate segment, which was the full amount of the Company’s intangibles within Kazakhstan.

Goodwill

Goodwill resulted from prior acquisitions as the consideration paid for the acquired businesses exceeded the fair value of acquired identifiable net tangible and intangible assets. Goodwill is reviewed for impairment at least annually, as of July 31, with additional evaluations being performed when events or circumstances indicate that the carrying value of these assets may not be recoverable.

The goodwill impairment test is used to identify potential impairment by comparing the fair value of each reporting unit to the book value of the reporting unit, including goodwill. Fair value of the reporting unit is determined using a combination of the reporting unit’s expected present value of future cash flows and a market approach. The present value of future cash flows is estimated using our most recent forecast and our weighted average cost of capital. The market approach uses a market multiple on the reporting unit’s cash generated from operations. Significant estimates for each

reporting unit included in our impairment analysis are cash flow forecasts, our weighted average cost of capital, projected income tax rates and market multiples. Changes in these estimates could affect the estimated fair value of our reporting units and result in an impairment of goodwill in a future period. If the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its book value, goodwill of the reporting unit is considered to be impaired. If the book value of the reporting unit’s goodwill exceeds the implied fair value of that goodwill, an impairment loss is recognized in an amount equal to that excess. Any impairment in the value of goodwill is charged to earnings in the period such impairment is determined.

The Company performs its annual impairment test on July 31, with the most recent annual test being performed as of July 31, 2018. The July 31, 2018, 2017 and 2016 tests resulted in no impairment as the fair value of each reporting unit exceeded the carrying value plus goodwill of that reporting unit. Additionally, the November 30, 2017 interim test, which was conducted due to a change in segments after the Company completed the acquisition of ESS resulted in no impairment as the fair value of each reporting unit substantially exceeded the carrying value plus goodwill of that reporting unit.

MCS had $22.5 million of goodwill as of December 31, 2018, and fair value exceeded carrying value by 34.7% as of the July 31, 2018 annual impairment test. Apps & IoT had $22.8 million of goodwill as of December 31, 2018, and fair value exceeded carrying value by 48.1% as of the July 31, 2018 annual impairment test. Systems Integration had $1.4 million of goodwill as of December 31, 2018, and fair value exceeded carrying value by 126.5% as of the July 31, 2018 annual impairment test. Any future downturn in our business could adversely impact the key assumptions in our impairment test. While we believe that there appears to be no indication of current or future impairment, historical operating results may not be indicative of future operating results and events and circumstances may occur causing a triggering event in a period as short as three months.

As of December 31, 2018 and 2017, goodwill was $46.6 million and $37.1 million, respectively. In addition to the impact of acquisitions and impairments, goodwill increases or decreases in value due to the effect of foreign currency translation.

Long-Term Debt

Long-term debt is recognized in the consolidated balance sheets, net of costs incurred, in connection with obtaining debt financing. Debt financing costs are deferred and reported as a reduction to the principal amount of the debt. Such costs are amortized over the life of the debt using the effective interest rate method and included in interest expense in the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Revenue Recognition - Revenue from Contracts with Customers

Revenue is recognized to depict the transfer of promised goods or services in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services.

Revenue Recognition - MCS and Apps & IoT

MCS and Apps & IoT customers are primarily served under fixed-price contracts, either on a monthly or day rate basis or for equipment sales and consulting services. Contracts are generally in the form of Master Service Agreements, or MSAs, with specific services being provided under individual service orders. Offshore contracts generally have a term of up to three years with renewal options. Land-based contracts are generally shorter term or terminable on short notice without a penalty. Service orders are executed under the MSA for individual remote sites or groups of sites, and generally permit early termination on short notice without penalty in the event of force majeure, breach of the MSA or cold stacking of a drilling rig (when a rig is taken out of service and is expected to be idle for a protracted period of time).

Performance Obligations Satisfied Over Time— The delivery of service represents the single performance obligation under MCS and Apps & IoT contracts. Revenue for contracts is generally recognized over time as service is transferred to the customer and the Company expects to be entitled to the agreed monthly or day rate in exchange for those services.

Performance Obligations Satisfied at a Point in Time—The delivery of equipment represents the single performance obligation under equipment sale contracts. Revenue for equipment sales is generally recognized upon delivery of equipment to customers.

Revenue Recognition – Systems Integration

Revenues related to long-term, fixed-price Systems Integration contracts for customized network solutions are recognized based on the percentage of completion for the contract. At any point, RigNet has numerous contracts in progress, all of which are at various stages of completion. Accounting for revenues and profits on long-term contracts requires estimates of total estimated contract costs and estimates of progress toward completion to determine the extent of revenue and profit recognition.

Performance Obligations Satisfied Over Time — The delivery of a Systems Integration solution represents the single performance obligation under Systems Integration contracts. Progress towards completion on fixed-price contracts is measured based on the ratio of costs incurred to total estimated contract costs (the cost-to-cost method). These estimates may be revised as additional information becomes available or as specific project circumstances change.

The Company reviews all material contracts on a monthly basis and revises the estimates as appropriate for developments such as providing services, purchasing third-party materials and equipment at costs differing from those previously estimated, and incurring or expecting to incur schedule issues. Changes in estimated final contract revenues and costs can either increase or decrease the final estimated contract profit or loss. Profits are recorded in the period in which a change in estimate is recognized, based on progress achieved through the period of change. Anticipated losses on contracts are recorded in full in the period in which they become evident. Revenue recognized in excess of amounts billed is classified as a current asset under Costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings on uncompleted contracts (CIEB).

Systems Integration contracts are billed in accordance with the terms of the contract which are typically either based on milestones or specified time intervals. As of December 31, 2018 and 2017, the amount of CIEB related to Systems Integration projects was $7.1 million and $2.4 million, respectively. Under long-term contracts, amounts recorded in CIEB may not be realized or paid, respectively, within a one-year period. As of December 31, 2018 and 2017, none and $0.4 million, respectively, of amounts billed to customers in excess of revenue recognized to date are classified as a current liability, under deferred revenue. All of the billings in excess of costs as of December 31, 2017 were recognized as revenue during the year ended December 31, 2018.

Variable Consideration – Systems Integration - The Company records revenue on contracts relating to certain probable claims and unapproved change orders by including in revenue an amount less than or equal to the amount of costs incurred to date relating to these probable claims and unapproved change orders, thus recognizing no profit until such time as claims are finalized or change orders are approved. The amount of unapproved change orders and claim revenues is included in the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets as part of CIEB. No material unapproved change orders or claims revenue was included in CIEB as of December 31, 2018 and 2017. As new facts become known, an adjustment to the estimated recovery is made and reflected in the current period.

Backlog - As of December 31, 2018, we have backlog for our percentage of completion projects of $45.5 million, which will be recognized over the remaining contract term for each contract. The Company’s backlog does not extend past 2020. Percentage of completion contract terms are typically one to three years.

Stock-Based Compensation

The Company recognizes expense for stock-based compensation based on the fair value of options and restricted stock on the grant date of the awards. Fair value of options on the grant date is determined using the Black-Scholes model, which requires judgment in estimating the expected term of the option, risk-free interest rate, expected volatility of the Company’s stock and dividend yield of the option. Fair value of restricted stock, restricted stock units and performance share units on the grant date is equal to the market price of RigNet’s common stock on the date of grant. The Company’s policy is to recognize compensation expense for service-based awards on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period of the entire award. Stock-based compensation expense is based on awards ultimately expected to vest.

Taxes

Current income taxes are determined based on the tax laws and rates in effect in the jurisdictions and countries that the Company operates in and revenue is earned. Deferred income taxes reflect the tax effect of net operating losses, foreign tax credits and the tax effects of temporary differences between the carrying amount of assets and liabilities for financial statement and income tax purposes, as determined under enacted tax laws and rates. Valuation allowances are established when management determines that it is more likely than not that some portion or the entire deferred tax asset will not be realized. The financial effect of changes in tax laws or rates is accounted for in the period of enactment.

From time to time, the Company engages in transactions in which the tax consequences may be subject to uncertainty. In the normal course of business, the Company prepares and files tax returns based on interpretation of tax laws and regulations, which are subject to examination by various taxing authorities. Such examinations may result in future tax and interest assessments by these taxing authorities. The Company evaluates its tax positions and recognize only tax benefits for financial purposes that, more likely than not, will be sustained upon examination, including resolutions of any related appeals or litigation processes, based on the technical merits of the position.

The Company has elected to include income tax related interest and penalties as a component of income tax expense.

On December 22, 2017 the U.S. government enacted comprehensive tax legislation commonly referred to as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (The Tax Act), making broad and complex changes to the U.S. tax code.

The SEC staff issued SAB 118, which provides guidance on accounting for the tax effects of the Tax Act. SAB 118 provides a measurement period that should not extend beyond one year from the Tax Act enactment date for companies to complete the accounting under ASC 740. In accordance with SAB 118, a company must reflect the income tax effects of those aspects of the Tax Act for which the accounting under ASC 740 is complete. To the extent that a company’s accounting for certain income tax effects of the Tax Act is incomplete but it is able to determine a reasonable estimate, it must record a provisional estimate in the financial statements. If a company cannot determine a provisional estimate to be included in the financial statements, it should continue to apply ASC 740 on the basis of the provisions of the tax laws that were in effect immediately before the enactment of the Tax Act.

The Company has completed the accounting for the income tax effects of the Tax Act based on current regulations and available information. Any additional guidance issued by the IRS could impact our recorded amounts in future periods.

Foreign Currency Translation

The U.S. dollar serves as the currency of measurement and reporting for the Company’s consolidated financial statements. The Company has certain subsidiaries with functional currencies of Norwegian kroner, British pound sterling, or Brazilian real. The functional currency of all the Company’s other subsidiaries is the U.S. dollar.

Transactions occurring in currencies other than the functional currency of a subsidiary have been converted to the functional currency of that subsidiary at the exchange rate in effect at the transaction date with resulting gains and losses included in current earnings. Carrying values of monetary assets and liabilities in functional currencies other than U.S. dollars have been translated to U.S. dollars based on the U.S. exchange rate at the balance sheet date and the resulting foreign currency translation gain or loss is included in comprehensive income (loss) in the consolidated financial statements.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09 (ASU 2014-09), Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). The core principle of this amendment is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. In August 2015, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2015-14 (ASU 2015-14), Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Deferral of the Effective Date. In March 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-08 (ASU 2016-08), Revenue from Contracts with Customers: Principal versus Agent Considerations. The amendments are intended to improve the operability and understandability of the implementation guidance on principal versus agent considerations. In April and May of 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-10 (ASU 2016-10) and Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-12 (ASU 2016-12), Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), respectively, that provide scope amendments, performance obligations clarification and practical expedients. These ASUs allow for the use of either the full or modified retrospective transition method and are effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within that reporting period, with early adoption permitted for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within that reporting period. The Company adopted this ASU on January 1, 2018. The Company’s evaluation of this ASU included a detailed review of representative contracts from each segment and comparing historical accounting policies and practices to the new standard. The adoption of this ASU did not have any material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

In March 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-02 (ASU 2016-02), Leases. This ASU is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018. This ASU introduces a new lessee model that generally brings leases on to the balance sheet. Based on the Company’s current leases, the Company anticipates the new guidance will require right-of-use assets and liabilities on the consolidated balance sheet of between approximately $5.2 million and $6.2 million as of December 31, 2018. The Company plans on adopting using the optional transition method permitted under Accounting Standards Update No. 2018-11 (ASU 2018-11). The Company’s credit agreement excludes the impact of ASU 2016-02.

In August 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-15 (ASU 2016-15), Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments. The new ASU reduces diversity of practice in how certain cash receipts and cash payments are presented and classified in the statement of cash flows under Topic 230, Statement of Cash Flows, and other Topics, including the treatment of contingent consideration payments made after a business combination. The ASU is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017. The Company adopted this ASU on January 1, 2018. The adoption of this ASU did not have any material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

In October 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-16 (ASU 2016-16), Income Taxes: Intra-Entity Transfer of Assets Other Than Inventory. The new ASU requires an entity to recognize the income tax consequences of an intra-entity transfer of an asset other than inventory when the transfer occurs, rather than the previous requirement to defer recognition of current and deferred income taxes for an intra-entity asset transfer until the asset had been sold to an outside party. The ASU is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017. The Company adopted this ASU on January 1, 2018 using the modified retrospective method through a $0.3 million cumulative effect that directly lowered accumulated deficit. The adoption of this ASU did not have any material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

In November 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-18 (ASU 2016-18), which includes restricted cash in the cash and cash equivalents balance in the statement of cash flows. The ASU is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017. The Company adopted this ASU on January 1, 2018. The adoption of this ASU did not have any material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

In June 2018, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2018-07 (ASU 2018-07), which expands the scope of Topic 718 to include share-based payment transactions for acquiring goods and services from nonemployees. The ASU is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018. The Company is currently in the process of evaluating the impact the adoption of this ASU will have on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-13 (ASU 2018-13), which eliminates disclosures, modifies existing disclosures and adds new Fair Value disclosure requirements to Topic 820 for the range and weighted average of significant unobservable inputs used to develop Level 3 fair value measurements. The ASU is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019. The Company is currently in the process of evaluating the impact the adoption of this ASU will have on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-15 (ASU 2018-15), which provides guidance on implementation costs incurred in a cloud computing arrangement that is a service contract. The ASU is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019. The Company is currently in the process of evaluating the impact the adoption of this ASU will have on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Note 2—Business and Credit Concentrations

The Company is exposed to various business and credit risks including interest rate, foreign currency, credit and liquidity risks.

Interest Rate Risk

The Company has significant interest-bearing liabilities at variable interest rates which generally price monthly. The Company’s variable borrowing rates are tied to LIBOR resulting in interest rate risk (see Note 6— “Long-Term Debt”). The Company presently does not use financial instruments to hedge interest rate risk, but evaluates this on a regular basis and may utilize financial instruments in the future if deemed necessary.

Foreign Currency Risk

The Company has exposure to foreign currency risk, as a portion of the Company’s activities are conducted in currencies other than U.S. dollars. Currently, the Norwegian kroner, the British pound sterling and the Brazilian real are the currencies that could materially impact the Company’s financial position and results of operations. The Company presently does not hedge these risks, but evaluates financial risk on a regular basis and may utilize financial instruments in the future if deemed necessary. Foreign currency translations are reported as accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) in the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Credit Risk

Credit risk, with respect to accounts receivable, is due to the limited number of customers concentrated in the oil and gas, maritime, pipeline, engineering and construction industries. The Company mitigates the risk of financial loss from defaults through defined collection terms in each contract or service agreement and periodic evaluations of the collectability of accounts receivable. The Company provides an allowance for doubtful accounts which is adjusted when the Company becomes aware of a specific customer’s inability to meet its financial obligations or as a result of changes in the overall aging of accounts receivable.

Liquidity Risk

The Company maintains cash and cash equivalent balances with major financial institutions which, at times, exceed federally insured limits. The Company monitors the financial condition of the financial institutions and has not experienced losses associated with these accounts during 2018, 2017 or 2016. Liquidity risk is managed by continuously monitoring forecasted and actual cash flows and by matching the maturity profiles of financial assets and liabilities (see Note 6— “Long-Term Debt”).

Note 3—Business Combinations

Auto-Comm and SAFCON

On April 18, 2018, RigNet completed the separate acquisitions of Automation Communications Engineering Corp. (Auto-Comm) and Safety Controls, Inc. (SAFCON) for an aggregate purchase price of $6.7 million. Of this aggregate purchase price RigNet paid $2.2 million in cash and $4.1 million in stock in April 2018. In September 2018, the Company paid $0.3 million in cash for a working capital adjustment.

Auto-Comm provides a broad range of communications services, for both onshore and offshore remote locations, to the oil and gas industry. Auto-Comm brings over 30 years of systems integration experience in engineering and design, installation, testing, and maintenance. SAFCON offers a diverse set of safety, security, and maintenance services to the oil and gas industry. Auto-Comm and SAFCON have developed strong relationships with major energy companies that complement the relationships that RigNet has established over the years. Auto-Comm and SAFCON are based in Louisiana.

The assets and liabilities of Auto-Comm and SAFCON have been recorded at their estimated fair values at the date of acquisition. The excess of the purchase price over the estimated fair values of the underlying net tangible and identifiable intangible assets and liabilities has been recorded as goodwill. The Company’s allocation of the purchase price is preliminary as the amounts related to the identifiable intangible assets and effects of income taxes resulting from the transaction, are still being finalized.

The goodwill of $1.4 million arising from the acquisitions consists largely of growth prospects, synergies and other benefits that the Company believes will result from combining the operations of the Company and Auto-Comm and SAFCON, as well as other intangible assets that do not qualify for separate recognition, such as assembled workforce in place at the date of acquisition. The goodwill recognized is expected to be nondeductible for income tax purposes. The acquisitions of Auto-Comm and SAFCON, including goodwill, are included in the Company’s consolidated financial statements as of the acquisition date and are primarily reflected in the Systems Integration segment.

Intelie

On March 23, 2018, RigNet completed its acquisition of Intelie Soluções Em Informática S.A (Intelie), for an estimated aggregate purchase price of $18.1 million. Of this aggregate purchase price, RigNet paid R$10.6 million (BRL) (or approximately $3.2 million) in cash, $7.3 million in stock and expects to pay $7.6 million worth of RigNet stock as contingent consideration earn-out, estimated as of the date of acquisition. The initial estimate of the earn-out payable was preliminary and remains subject to change based on the achievement of certain post-closing performance targets under the acquisition agreement. The maximum earn-out is $17.0 million payable in stock. Intelie is a real-time, predictive analytics company that combines an operational understanding with a machine learning approach. Intelie facilitates innovation via Intelie Pipes, a distributed query language with a complex event processor to aggregate and normalize real-time data from a myriad of data sources. This technology enables the Intelie LIVE platform to solve data integration, data quality, data governance and monitoring problems. Intelie LIVE is an operational intelligence platform that empowers clients to make timely, data-driven decisions in mission-critical real-time operations, including drilling, and longer-term, data-intensive projects, such as well planning. Intelie Live has broad applicability across many industry verticals. Intelie is based in Brazil.

The assets and liabilities of Intelie have been recorded at their estimated fair values at the date of acquisition. The excess of the purchase price over the estimated fair values of the underlying net tangible and identifiable intangible assets and liabilities has been recorded as goodwill. The Company’s allocation of the purchase price is preliminary as the amounts related to contingent consideration, identifiable intangible assets, and the effects of income taxes resulting from the transaction, are still being finalized.

The earn-out for Intelie is measured at fair value in each reporting period, based on level 3 inputs, with any change to fair value recorded in the Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Loss. As of December 31, 2018, the fair value of the earn-out was $9.5 million, of which $3.0 million is in other current liabilities and $6.5 million is in other long-term liabilities. During the year ended December 31, 2018, RigNet recognized $1.8 million of increase in the fair value and accreted interest expense of $0.1 million on the Intelie earn-out with corresponding increases to other liabilities. The earn-out is payable in RigNet stock in portions on the first, second and third anniversary of the closing of the acquisition based on certain post-closing performance targets under the acquisition agreement.

The goodwill of $10.7 million arising from the acquisition consists largely of growth prospects, synergies and other benefits that the Company believes will result from combining the operations of the Company and Intelie, as well as other intangible assets that do not qualify for separate recognition, such as assembled workforce in place at the date of acquisition. None of the goodwill recognized is expected to be deductible for income tax purposes. The acquisition of Intelie, including goodwill, is included in the Company’s consolidated financial statements as of the acquisition date and is reflected in the Apps & IoT segment.

The Company incurred acquisition-related costs of $2.3 million in the year ended December 31, 2018, reported in general and administrative expenses. Additional costs related to these acquisitions may be incurred and recorded as expense in 2019.

Energy Satellite Services

On July 28, 2017, RigNet acquired substantially all the assets of Energy Satellite Services (ESS). ESS is a supplier of wireless communications services via satellite networks primarily to the midstream sector of the oil and gas industry for remote pipeline monitoring. The assets acquired enhance RigNet’s Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) customer portfolio, and strengthen the Company’s Apps & IoT market position. The Company paid $22.2 million in cash for the ESS assets. ESS is based in Texas.

The assets and liabilities of ESS have been recorded at their estimated fair values at the date of acquisition. The excess of the purchase price over the estimated fair values of the underlying net tangible and identifiable intangible assets and liabilities has been recorded as goodwill.

The goodwill of $8.5 million arising from the acquisition consists largely of growth prospects, synergies and other benefits that the Company believes will result from combining the operations of the Company and ESS, as well as other intangible assets that do not qualify for separate recognition, such as assembled workforce in place at the date of acquisition. The goodwill recognized is expected to be deductible for income tax purposes. The acquisition of ESS, including goodwill, is included in the Company’s consolidated financial statements as of the acquisition date and is reflected in the Apps & IoT segment.

The Company paid $5.1 million in cash for the DTS assets. DTS is based in Louisiana.

The assets and liabilities of DTS have been recorded at their estimated fair values at the date of acquisition. The excess of the purchase price over the estimated fair values of the underlying net tangible and identifiable intangible assets and liabilities has been recorded as goodwill.

The goodwill of $0.7 million arising from the acquisition consists largely of growth prospects, synergies and other benefits that the Company believes will result from combining the operations of the Company and DTS, as well as other intangible assets that do not qualify for separate recognition, such as assembled workforce in place at the date of acquisition. The goodwill recognized is expected to be deductible for income tax purposes. The acquisition of DTS, including goodwill, is included in the Company’s consolidated financial statements as of the acquisition date and is reflected in the MCS segment.

Of this aggregate purchase price, RigNet paid $4.9 million in cash in May 2017, $3.3 million in stock and expects to pay $3.8 million of contingent consideration for intellectual property, estimated as of the date of acquisition. Cyphre is a cybersecurity company that provides advanced enterprise data protection leveraging BlackTIE® hardware-based encryption featuring low latency protection for files at rest and in transit for both public and private cloud. Cyphre is based in Texas.

The contingent consideration for Cyphre is measured at fair value in each reporting period, based on level 3 inputs, with any change to fair value recorded in the Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Loss. As of December 31, 2018, the fair value of the contingent consideration was $3.7 million, of which $0.3 million is in other current liabilities and $3.4 million is in other long-term liabilities. During the year ended December 31, 2018, RigNet recognized a $0.3 million reduction in fair value and accreted interest expense of $0.1 million on the Cyphre contingent consideration with corresponding changes to other liabilities.

The assets and liabilities of Cyphre have been recorded at their estimated fair values at the date of acquisition. The excess of the purchase price over the estimated fair values of the underlying net tangible and identifiable intangible assets and liabilities has been recorded as goodwill.

The goodwill of $4.6 million arising from the acquisition consists largely of growth prospects, synergies and other benefits that the Company believes will result from combining the operations of the Company and Cyphre, as well as other intangible assets that do not qualify for separate recognition, such as assembled workforce in place at the date of acquisition. The goodwill recognized is expected to be deductible for income tax purposes. The acquisition of Cyphre, including goodwill, is included in the Company’s consolidated financial statements as of the acquisition date and is reflected in the Apps & IoT segment.

Credit Agreement

On November 6, 2017, the Company entered into its third amended and restated credit agreement with four participating financial institutions. The credit agreement provides for a $15.0 million term loan facility (Term Loan) and an $85.0 million revolving credit facility (RCF) and matures on November 6, 2020.

The RCF contains a sub-limit of up to $25.0 million for commercial and stand-by letters of credit and performance bonds issued by the parties under the Credit Agreement. The facilities under the credit agreement are secured by substantially all the assets of the Company.

Under the credit agreement, both the Term Loan and RCF bear interest at a rate of LIBOR plus a margin ranging from 1.75% to 2.75% based on a consolidated leverage ratio defined in the credit agreement. Interest is payable monthly and principal installments of $1.25 million under the Term Loan are due quarterly. The weighted average interest rate for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 were 4.8% and 3.3%, respectively, with an interest rate of 5.3% at December 31, 2018.

Term Loan

As of December 31, 2018, the Term Loan had an outstanding principal balance of $10.0 million, excluding the impact of unamortized deferred financing costs.

RCF

As of December 31, 2018, $67.2 million in draws remain outstanding under the RCF.

Covenants and Restrictions

The Company’s credit agreement contains certain covenants and restrictions, including restricting the payment of cash dividends under default and maintaining certain financial covenants such as a consolidated leverage ratio, defined in the credit agreement, of less than or equal to 2.75 to 1.00 and a consolidated fixed charge coverage ratio of not less than 1.25 to 1.00 as of December 31, 2018. If any default occurs related to these covenants that is not cured or waived, the unpaid principal and any accrued interest can be declared immediately due and payable.

In April 2019, the Company determined that in periods beginning at least as early as March 31, 2014, it had incurred and not appropriately included certain surety bonds or other similar instruments in its consolidated leverage ratio calculation as defined by the credit agreement. As a result, on May 6, 2019, the Company entered into a Consent and Waiver (Consent) to the credit agreement with the financial institutions party thereto under which the Company is permitted to exclude certain incurred surety bonds and other similar instruments from the calculation of Consolidated Funded Indebtedness (as defined in the credit agreement) for the period ended March 31, 2019. In addition, the Consent waived all specified violations for all prior periods.

The Company continues to work with the financial institutions under our credit agreement to ensure that the credit agreement does not impede the Company’s ordinary-course business operations with respect to surety bonds and other similar instruments.

Performance Bonds, Surety Bonds and Other Similar Instruments

On September 14, 2012, NesscoInvsat Limited, a subsidiary of RigNet, secured a performance bond facility. On November 6, 2017, this facility became a part of the third amended and restated credit agreement and falls under the $25.0 million sub-limit of the RCF for commercial and standby letters of credit and performance bonds issued by the parties under the Credit Agreement.

As of December 31, 2018, there were no outstanding standby letters of credit and there were $30.5 million of performance bonds outstanding of which $1.7 million is issued by the parties under the Credit Agreement.

In June 2016, the Company secured a performance bond facility with a lender in the amount of $1.5 million for its MCS segment. This facility has a maturity date of June 2021. The Company maintains restricted cash on a dollar for dollar basis to secure this facility.

Deferred Financing Costs

The Company incurred bank fees associated with the credit agreement, and certain amendments hereto, which were capitalized and reported as a reduction to long-term debt. Deferred financing costs are expensed using the effective interest method over the life of the agreement. For the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, deferred financing cost amortization of $0.2 million is included in interest expense in the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Updated Credit Agreement

On February 13, 2019, the Company entered into the first amendment to the third amended and restated credit agreement (Updated Credit Agreement) with four participating financial institutions. The Company refinanced $30.0 million of outstanding draws under the existing $85.0 million RCF with a new $30.0 million term out facility. The Updated Credit Agreement requires a $45.0 million reserve (Specified Reserve) under the RCF that will be released and made available for borrowing for payment of monetary damages from the GX dispute. The Updated Credit Agreement provides for a $15.0 million term loan facility, a $30.0 million term out facility and an $85.0 million revolving credit facility. The revolving credit facility and term out facility mature on April 6, 2021. The term loan facility matures on December 31, 2020.

Under the Updated Credit Agreement, the term loan facility, the term out facility and the revolving credit facility bear interest at a rate of LIBOR plus a margin ranging from 1.75% to 3.00% based on a consolidated leverage ratio defined in the Updated Credit Agreement. Interest is payable monthly and principal installments of $1.25 million under the term loan facility are due quarterly. Principal installments of $1.5 million are due quarterly under the term out facility beginning June 30, 2019. The revolving credit facility contains a sub-limit of up to $25.0 million for commercial and stand-by letters of credit issued by the parties under the Credit Agreement.

The Company’s Updated Credit Agreement contains certain covenants and restrictions, including restricting the payment of cash dividends under default, and maintaining certain financial covenants such as a consolidated fixed charge coverage ratio of not less than 1.25 to 1.00. Additionally, the Updated Credit Agreement requires a consolidated leverage ratio, as defined in the Updated Credit Agreement, of less than or equal to 2.75 to 1.00 as. The consolidated leverage ratio increases to 3.25 to 1.00 for four quarters starting in the quarter that RigNet makes a final irrevocable payment of all monetary damages from the GX dispute. The consolidated leverage ratio then decreases to 3.00 to 1.00 for three quarters, and then decreases to 2.75 to 1.00 for all remaining quarters. If any default occurs related to these covenants that is not cured or waived, the unpaid principal and any accrued interest can be declared immediately due and payable. The facilities under the Updated Credit Agreement are secured by substantially all the assets of the Company.

Note 7—Related Party Transactions

The Company has a reseller arrangement with Darktrace, which is an artificial intelligence company in cybersecurity that is partially owned by Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P. (KKR). KKR is a significant stockholder of the Company. Under the arrangement, the Company will sell Darktrace’s cybersecurity audit services with the Company’s cybersecurity offerings. In the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company purchased $0.1 million from Darktrace in the ordinary course of business.

Vissim AS has participated in a competitive request for quote from RigNet in the ordinary course of business. Vissim AS is 24% owned by AVANT Venture Capital AS. AVANT Venture Capital is owned by and has as its chairman of its board one of our board members. Although no amounts were spent with Vissim AS in the year ended December 31, 2018, in the future the Company may spend money with this potential vendor.

Note 8—Fair Value Measurements

The Company uses the following methods and assumptions to estimate the fair value of financial instruments:

 

   

Cash and Cash Equivalents — Reported amounts approximate fair value based on quoted market prices (Level 1).

 

   

Restricted Cash — Reported amounts approximate fair value.

 

   

Accounts Receivable — Reported amounts, net of the allowance for doubtful accounts, approximate fair value due to the short-term nature of these assets.

 

   

Accounts Payable, Including Income Taxes Payable and Accrued Expenses — Reported amounts approximate fair value due to the short-term nature of these liabilities.

 

   

Long-Term Debt — The carrying amount of the Company’s floating-rate debt approximates fair value since the interest rates paid are based on short-term maturities and recent quoted rates from financial institutions. The estimated fair value of debt was calculated based upon observable (Level 2) inputs regarding interest rates available to the Company at the end of each respective period.

Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. For items that are not actively traded, fair value reflects the price in a transaction with a market participant, including an adjustment for risk, not just the mark-to-market value. The fair value measurement standard establishes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. As presented in the table below, the hierarchy consists of three broad levels:

Level 1—Inputs are unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities and have the highest priority.

Level 2—Inputs are observable inputs other than quoted prices considered Level 1. Level 2 inputs are market-based and are directly or indirectly observable, including quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; or valuation techniques whose inputs are observable. Where observable inputs are available, directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the asset or liability, the instrument is categorized in Level 2.

 

F-25


Table of Contents

RIGNET, INC.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS – (CONTINUED)

 

Level 3—Inputs are unobservable (meaning they reflect the Company’s assumptions regarding how market participants would price the asset or liability based on the best available information) and therefore have the lowest priority.

A financial instrument’s level within the fair value hierarchy is based on the lowest level of any input that is significant to the fair value measurement. RigNet believes it uses appropriate valuation techniques, such as market-based valuation, based on the available inputs to measure the fair values of its assets and liabilities. The Company’s valuation technique maximizes the use of observable inputs and minimizes the use of unobservable inputs.

The Company had no derivatives as of December 31, 2018 or 2017.

The Company’s non-financial assets, such as goodwill, intangibles and property, plant and equipment, are measured at fair value, based on level 3 inputs, when there is an indicator of impairment and recorded at fair value only when an impairment charge is recognized.

The earn-out for Intelie is measured at fair value in each reporting period, based on level 3 inputs, with any change to fair value recorded in the Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Loss. As of December 31, 2018, the fair value of the earn-out was $9.5 million, of which $3.0 million is in other current liabilities and $6.5 million is in other long-term liabilities. During the year ended December 31, 2018, RigNet recognized $1.8 million of increase in the fair value and accreted interest expense of $0.1 million on the Intelie earn-out with corresponding increases to other liabilities. The earn-out is payable in RigNet stock in portions on the first, second and third anniversary of the closing of the acquisition based on certain post-closing performance targets under the acquisition agreement.

The contingent consideration for Cyphre is measured at fair value in each reporting period, based on level 3 inputs, with any change to fair value recorded in the Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Loss. As of December 31, 2018, the fair value of the contingent consideration was $3.7 million, of which $0.3 million is in other current liabilities and $3.4 million is in other long-term liabilities. During the year ended December 31, 2018, RigNet recognized a $0.3 million reduction in fair value and accreted interest expense of $0.1 million on the Cyphre contingent consideration with corresponding changes to other liabilities.

The earn-out for Orgtec S.A.P.I. de C.V., d.b.a. TECNOR (TECNOR), acquired in March 2016, was measured at fair value in each reporting period, based on level 3 inputs, with any change to fair value recorded in the Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Loss. The fair value of the earn-out of $8.0 million was paid in July 2018. The $2.1 million change in fair value in the year ended December 31, 2018 was primarily related to the second quarter 2018 negotiations with the sellers of TECNOR on the amount of the earn-out. There was a $0.3 million and $1.3 million reduction in fair value to the TECNOR earn-out in the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively, recorded as a reduction of other current liabilities and a decrease to expense in the Corporate segment.

Note 9—Commitments and Contingencies

Legal Proceedings

In August 2017, the Company filed litigation in Harris County District Court and arbitration against one of its former Chief Executive Officers for, among other things, breach of fiduciary duty, misappropriation of trade secrets, unfair competition and breach of contract. That former executive filed counterclaims against the Company and one of its independent directors. The parties entered into a settlement agreement resolving all claims amongst themselves in May 2018 and dismissed the litigation and arbitration proceedings. The Company incurred legal expense of approximately $0.6 million and $0.9 million in connection with this dispute for the year ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Global Xpress (GX) Dispute

Inmarsat plc (Inmarsat), a satellite telecommunications company, filed arbitration with the International Centre for Dispute Resolution tribunal (the panel) in October 2016 concerning a January 2014 take-or-pay agreement to purchase up to $65.0 million, under certain conditions, of GX capacity from Inmarsat over several years (GX dispute). Phase I of the arbitration, now concluded, concerned only whether RigNet’s take or pay obligation ever commenced under the agreement. In December 2018, the panel’s Phase I ruling found that a take-or-pay obligation under a January 2014 contract had commenced and that RigNet owed Inmarsat $50.8 million, subject to any offsets from RigNet’s counterclaims in Phase II of the arbitration. The Phase I ruling is an interim ruling, and RigNet is not required to pay any amounts to Inmarsat until the panel rules on Phase II counterclaims. The Company currently expects a Phase II ruling in the second half of 2019.

The Company has an accrued liability of $50.8 million, based on the Phase I interim award amount. While management believes it has strong counterclaims, which will be heard in Phase II and could reduce the ultimate liability, the amount of the final award is not estimable at this time. No assurance can be given as to the ultimate outcome of the GX dispute, and the ultimate outcome may differ from the accrued amount. Based on the information available at this time, the potential final loss could be based on the Phase I ruling less any offsets from RigNet’s counterclaims in Phase II of the arbitration offset by any potential counterclaims by Inmarsat, including interest and fees. As such, the range of the ultimate liability is currently not estimable.

During the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company has accrued $50.6 million of expense, net of approximately $0.2 million of prior accruals, in the Corporate segment. The Company has incurred legal expenses of $2.2 million and $1.6 million in connection with the GX dispute for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The Company may continue to incur significant legal fees, related expenses and management time in the future.

Other Litigation

The Company, in the ordinary course of business, is a claimant or a defendant in various legal proceedings, including proceedings as to which the Company has insurance coverage and those that may involve the filing of liens against the Company or its assets.

Sales Tax Audit

The Company is undergoing a routine sales tax audit from a state where the Company has operations. The audit can cover up to a four-year period. The Company is in the early stages of the audit, and does not have any estimates of further exposure, if any, for the tax years under review.

Contractual Dispute

The Company’s Systems Integration business reached a settlement in the first quarter of 2016 related to a contract dispute associated with a percentage of completion project. The dispute related to the payment for work related to certain change orders. After the settlement, the Company recognized $2.3 million of gain in the first quarter of 2016. In the fourth quarter of 2016, the Company issued additional billings for approximately $1.0 million related to work performed in prior years under the contract. After the collection of this final billing in the fourth quarter of 2016, the Company received the certificate of final acceptance from the customer acknowledging completion of the project. The total loss incurred over the life of this project amounted to $11.2 million.

The Company incurred legal expense of $0.2 million in connection with the dispute for the year ended December 31, 2016.

Regulatory Matter

In 2013, RigNet’s internal compliance program detected potential violations of U.S. sanctions by one of its foreign subsidiaries in connection with certain of its customers’ rigs that were moved into the territorial waters of countries sanctioned by the United States. The Company estimates that it received total revenue of approximately $0.1 million during the period related to the potential violations. The Company voluntarily self-reported the potential violations to the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and the U.S. Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and retained outside counsel who conducted an investigation of the matter under the supervision of the Company’s Audit Committee and submitted a report to OFAC and BIS.

The Company incurred legal expenses of $0.1 million in connection with the investigation during the year ended December 31, 2016.

In the third quarter of 2016, the Company received a letter from BIS notifying the Company that it had concluded its investigation. BIS assessed no fines or penalties on the Company in connection with the matter. The Company does not anticipate any penalties or fines will be assessed as a result of the matter. As such, the Company released the previously accrued estimated liability of $0.8 million resulting in a decrease of general and administrative expense for the year ended December 31, 2016 in the MCS segment.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS – (CONTINUED)

 

2010 Omnibus Incentive Plan

In May 2010, the Board of Directors adopted the 2010 Omnibus Incentive Plan (2010 Plan). Under the 2010 Plan, the Board of Directors or its designated committee is authorized to issue awards representing a total of four million shares of common stock to certain directors, officers and employees of the Company. Awards may be in the form of new stock incentive awards or options including (i) incentive or non-qualified stock options, (ii) stock appreciation rights, (iii) restricted stock, (iv) restricted stock units (RSUs), (v) performance stock, (vi) performance share units (PSUs), (vii) director awards, (viii) annual cash incentive awards, (ix) cash-based awards, (x) substitution awards or (xi) other stock-based awards, as approved by the Board of Directors or its designated committee. Options granted under the 2010 Plan will generally expire at the earlier of a specified period after termination of service or the date specified by the Board of Directors or its designated committee at the date of grant, but not more than ten years from such grant date.

During the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company granted 59,703 stock options with an average exercise price of $13.50 to certain officers and employees of the Company under the 2010 Plan. Options granted have a contractual term of ten years and vest over a four-year period of continued employment, with 25% of the options vesting on each of the first four anniversaries of the grant date. As of December 31, 2018, the Company has issued 1,204,813 options under the 2010 Plan, of which 193,441 options have been exercised, 691,766 options have been returned or forfeited and 319,606 options remain outstanding under the 2010 Plan.

During the year ended December 31, 2018 in addition to the options described above, the Company granted a total of 459,497 stock-based awards to certain directors, officers and employees of the Company under the 2010 Plan. Of these, the Company granted (i) 158,503 restricted stock units (RSUs) to certain officers and employees that generally vest over a four-year period of continued employment, with 25% of the RSUs vesting on each of the first four anniversaries of the grant date, (ii) 17,380 RSUs to certain officers and employees that generally vest over a two year period of continued employment, with 50% of the RSUs vesting on each of the first two anniversaries of the grant date, (iii) 48,179 RSUs to outside directors that vest in 2019, (iv) 157,442 unrestricted stock grants to certain officers and employees that vested immediately and (v) 77,993 performance share units (PSUs) to certain officers and employees that generally cliff vest on the third anniversary of the grant date and are subject to continued employment and certain performance based targets. The ultimate number of PSUs issued is based on a multiple determined by the achievement of certain performance-based targets. As of December 31, 2018, 782,506 RSUs and shares of restricted stock have vested, 667,246 RSUs and shares of restricted stock have been forfeited and 395,265 unvested RSUs and shares of restricted stock were outstanding under the 2010 Plan.

2006 Long-Term Incentive Plan

In March 2006, the Board of Directors adopted the RigNet 2006 Long-Term Incentive Plan (2006 Plan). Under the 2006 Plan, the Board of Directors is authorized to issue options to purchase RigNet common stock to certain officers and employees of the Company. In general, all options granted under the 2006 Plan have a contractual term of ten years and a four-year vesting period, with 25.0% of the options vesting on each of the first four anniversaries of the grant date. The 2006 Plan authorized the issuance of three million options, which was increased to five million in January 2010, net of any options returned or forfeited. As of December 31, 2018, the Company has granted options to purchase 981,125 shares under the 2006 Plan, of which 754,878 options have been exercised, 221,872 options have been returned or forfeited and 4,375 options remain outstanding. The Company will grant no additional options under the 2006 Plan as the Company’s Board of Directors froze the 2006 Plan.

The Company does not accrue or pay dividends with regard to any equity awards.

Stock-based compensation expense related to the Company’s stock-based compensation plans for the years ended December 31, 2018, 2017 and 2016 was $4.7 million, $3.7 million and $3.4 million, respectively, and accordingly, reduced income for each year.

There were no significant modifications to the two stock-based compensation plans during the years ended December 31, 2018, 2017 or 2016. As of December 31, 2018 and 2017, there were $3.3 million and $6.5 million, respectively, of total unrecognized compensation cost related to unvested equity awards granted and expected to vest under the 2010 Plan. This cost is expected to be recognized on a remaining weighted-average period of two years.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS – (CONTINUED)

 

All outstanding equity instruments are settled in stock. The Company currently does not have any awards accounted for as a liability. The fair value of each stock option award is estimated on the grant date using a Black-Scholes option valuation model, which uses certain assumptions as of the date of grant:

 

   

Expected Volatility—based on peer group price volatility for periods equivalent to the expected term of the options

 

   

Expected Term—expected life adjusted based on management’s best estimate for the effects of non-transferability, exercise restriction and behavioral considerations

 

   

Risk-Free Interest Rate—risk-free rate, for periods within the contractual terms of the options, is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant

 

   

Dividend Yield—expected dividends based on the Company’s historical dividend rate at the date of grant

No options were granted in 2017. The assumptions used for grants made in the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2016 were as follows:

 

     Year Ended December 31,  
     2018     2016  

Expected volatility

     48     49

Expected term (in years)

     7       7  

Risk-free interest rate

     2.8     1.6 - 1.7

Dividend yield

     —         —    

Based on these assumptions, the weighted average grant date fair value of stock options granted, per share, for the year ended December 31, 2018 and 2016 was $7.14 and $6.56, respectively.

The fair value of each RSU and PSU award on the grant date is equal to the market price of RigNet’s stock on the date of grant. The weighted average fair value of RSUs, PSUs and restricted stock granted, per share, for the years ended December 31, 2018, 2017 and 2016 was $14.22, $19.68 and $12.45 respectively.

Note 11— Earnings (loss) per Share

Basic earnings (loss) per share (EPS) are computed by dividing net loss attributable to RigNet common stockholders by the number of basic shares outstanding. Basic shares equal the total of the common shares outstanding, weighted for the average days outstanding for the period. Basic shares exclude the dilutive effect of common shares that could potentially be issued due to exercise of stock options, vesting of restricted stock, RSUs or PSUs. Diluted EPS is computed by dividing loss attributable to RigNet common stockholders by the number of diluted shares outstanding. Diluted shares equal the total of the basic shares outstanding and all potentially issuable shares, other than antidilutive shares, if any, weighted for the average days outstanding for the period. The Company uses the treasury stock method to determine the dilutive effect. In periods when a net loss is reported, all common stock equivalents are excluded from the calculation because they would have an anti-dilutive effect, meaning the loss per share would be

As of December 31, 2018, there were approximately 573,481 potentially issuable shares excluded from the Company’s calculation of diluted EPS that were excluded because the Company incurred a loss in the period and to include them would have been anti-dilutive.

As of December 31, 2017, there were approximately 625,039 potentially issuable shares excluded from the Company’s calculation of diluted EPS that were excluded because the Company incurred a loss in the period and to include them would have been anti-dilutive.

As of December 31, 2016, there were approximately 1,120,400 potentially issuable shares excluded from the Company’s calculation of diluted EPS that were excluded because the Company incurred a loss in the period and to include them would have been anti-dilutive.

The amount reported on an as filed basis can differ from the amount recorded in the deferred tax assets of the Company’s financial statements due to the utilization or creation of assets in recording uncertain tax benefits.

In assessing deferred tax assets, the Company considers whether a valuation allowance should be recorded for some or all of the deferred tax assets which may not be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the periods in which the temporary differences become deductible. Among other items, the Company considers the scheduled reversal of deferred tax liabilities, projected future taxable income and available tax planning strategies. While the Company expects to realize the remaining net deferred tax assets, changes in future taxable income or in tax laws may alter this expectation and result in future increases to the valuation allowance.

During 2018, the Company released the valuation allowance of $4.2 million in Australia. Management determined that sufficient positive evidence exists to conclude that it is more likely than not that the deferred tax assets will be realized in the future.

As of December 31, 2018, the Company intends to continue reinvesting earnings outside of the United States for the foreseeable future. This determination is based on estimates that future domestic cash generation will be sufficient to meet future domestic cash needs and on its specific plan for reinvestment of the foreign subsidiaries’ undistributed earnings, with the exception of RigNet Qatar W.L.L. The Company did recognize U.S. taxes on the one-time repatriation tax due under the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. While the Company does not expect to repatriate cash to the United States, if these amounts were distributed in the form of dividends or otherwise, the Company may be subject to additional tax liabilities with respect to items such as certain foreign exchange gains or losses, withholding taxes or state taxes It is not practicable at this time to determine the amount of unrecognized deferred tax liabilities with respect to the reinvested foreign earnings.

Corporate Tax Reform

On December 22, 2017 the U.S. government enacted comprehensive tax legislation commonly referred to as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (The Tax Act), making broad and complex changes to the U.S. tax code.

The SEC staff issued SAB 118, which provides guidance on accounting for the tax effects of the Tax Act. SAB 118 provides a measurement period that should not extend beyond one year from the Tax Act enactment date for companies to complete the accounting under ASC 740. In accordance with SAB 118, a company must reflect the income tax effects of those aspects of the Tax Act for which the accounting under ASC 740 is complete. To the extent that a company’s accounting for certain income tax effects of the Tax Act is incomplete but it is able to determine a reasonable estimate, it must record a provisional estimate in the financial statements. If a company cannot determine a provisional estimate to be included in the financial statements, it should continue to apply ASC 740 on the basis of the provisions of the tax laws that were in effect immediately before the enactment of the Tax Act.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS – (CONTINUED)

 

During 2018, the Company has completed the accounting for the income tax effects of the Tax Act based on current regulations and available information. Any additional guidance issued by the IRS could impact our recorded amounts in future periods.. The adjustments related to The Tax Act are recorded as follows:

Reduction of US Federal Corporate Tax Rate: In the fourth quarter of 2017, the Company recorded a provisional decrease of $8.2 million to deferred tax expense related to the US federal corporate tax rate reduction. The Department of Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service issued proposed regulations in 2018 which provided additional guidance on the provisions of the Transition Tax under Section 965, including the election not to apply net operating loss deductions against the Transition Tax. The Company elected to apply foreign tax credits against the Transition Tax rather than current year operating losses. Due to utilizing credits rather than current operating losses, the Company recorded an additional decrease of $1.8 million to deferred tax expense and assets in 2018; however, since the Company recognizes a full valuation on the deferred tax asset, there is no impact to the 2018 federal tax provision. The Company considers this item complete.

Deemed Repatriation Transition Tax: In the fourth quarter of 2017, the Company recorded a provisional Transition Tax obligation of $3.8 million, which was fully offset by current losses and foreign tax credits. The Department of Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service issued proposed regulations in 2018 which provided additional guidance on the provisions of the Transition Tax under Section 965, including the election not to apply net operating loss deductions against the Transition Tax. The Company elected to apply foreign tax credits against the Transition Tax rather than current year operating losses. The final Transition Tax obligation of $4.0 million is fully offset by foreign tax credits. The Company considers this item complete.

Global Intangible Low Taxed Income (GILTI): In the fourth quarter of 2017, the Company was not able to reasonably estimate the effects for GILTI. Therefore, no provisional adjustment was recorded. Under U.S. GAAP, the Company is allowed to make an accounting policy choice of either (1) treating taxes due on future U.S. inclusions in taxable income related to GILTI as a current-period expense when incurred (the period cost method) or (2) factoring such amounts into a company’s measurement of its deferred taxes (the deferred method). The Company’s selection of an accounting policy related to the new GILTI tax rules will depend, in part, on analyzing its global income to determine whether it expects to have future U.S. inclusions in taxable income related to GILTI and, if so, what the impact is expected to be. The Company has elected to treat any future U.S. inclusions in taxable income related to GILTI as a current-period expense when incurred (the period cost method). The Company prepared an estimate for 2018, which resulted in no GILTI impact. The Company considers this item complete.

Uncertain Tax Benefits

The Company evaluates its tax positions and recognizes only tax benefits that, more likely than not, will be sustained upon examination, including resolution of any related appeals or litigation processes, based on the technical merits of the position. The tax position is measured at the largest amount of benefit that has a greater than 50.0% likelihood of being realized upon settlement. At December 31, 2018, 2017 and 2016, the Company’s uncertain tax benefits totaling $16.1 million, $18.8 million and $21.8 million, respectively, are reported as other liabilities in the consolidated balance sheets. Changes in the Company’s gross unrecognized tax benefits are as follows:

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS – (CONTINUED)

 

As of December 31, 2018, the Company’s gross unrecognized tax benefits which would impact the annual effective tax rate upon recognition were $7.5 million. In addition, as of December 31, 2018, the Company has recorded related assets, net of a valuation allowance of $1.1 million. The related asset might not be recognized in the same period as the contingent tax liability and like interest and penalties does have an impact on the annual effective tax rate. The Company has elected to include income tax related interest and penalties as a component of income tax expense. As of December 31, 2018, 2017 and 2016, the Company has accrued penalties and interest of approximately $8.6 million, $9.2 million and $8.8 million, respectively. The Company has recognized ($0.6) million, $0.3 million and $1.6 million of interest and penalties in income tax expense for the years ended December 31, 2018, 2017 and 2016, respectively. To the extent interest and penalties are not assessed with respect to uncertain tax positions, accruals will be reduced and reflected as a reduction to income tax expense.

The Company believes that it is reasonably possible that a decrease of up to $3.3 million in unrecognized tax benefits, including related interest and penalties, may be necessary within the coming year due to lapse in statute of limitations.    

The Company files income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction, and various states and foreign jurisdictions. All of the Company’s federal filings are still subject to tax examinations. With few exceptions, the Company is no longer subject to the foreign income tax examinations by tax authorities for years before 2008.

The Company received an IRS notice informing us of an audit of the Company’s 2016 income tax return. It is unclear if the audit and the appeals process, if necessary, will be completed within the next twelve months. The Company is in the early stages of the audit and is unable to quantify any potential settlement or outcome of the audit at this time.

  5.

The Registrant’s other certifying officer and I have disclosed, based on our most recent evaluation of internal control over financial reporting, to the Registrant’s auditors and the audit committee of the Registrant’s Board of Directors (or persons performing the equivalent functions):
