RigNet Announces Second Quarter 2013 Earnings Results

HOUSTON, Aug. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RigNet, Inc. (Nasdaq:RNET), a leading global provider of remote communications services to the oil and gas industry, today reported quarterly results for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Revenue was $51.3 million for the second quarter, including $12.1 million from our Nessco operations, a recently acquired subsidiary. Organic revenue increased by $6.0 million, or 18.2%, for the three months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the same period of 2012, primarily due to increases in sites served and increased revenue-per-site resulting from bandwidth upgrades and additional value-added services provided. Revenue decreased by $1.5 million, or 2.8%, for the three months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the previous quarter primarily due to systems integration revenue declining $4.8 million related to timing of certain projects, partially offset by strong quarter-on-quarter growth in our core offshore rig communications business.

Record Adjusted EBITDA of $13.9 million in the second quarter, or 27.1% of revenue, represents an increase of 37.8% over the same quarter last year and an increase of 10.1% over the previous quarter. Adjusted EBITDA increased by $3.8 million over the prior year period primarily due to growth in our core offshore business and the Nessco acquisition, partially offset by costs associated with head count additions and additional professional fees. Adjusted EBITDA increased $1.3 million over the previous quarter, primarily due to growth in our core offshore business that was partially offset by decreased revenue from systems integration projects.

Net income attributable to common stockholders was $4.9 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, for the second quarter compared to net income attributable to common stockholders of $2.9 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, in the same quarter last year and net income attributable to common stockholders of $3.7 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, in the previous quarter.

Capital expenditures were $8.5 million in the second quarter compared to $4.8 million in the same quarter last year and $6.6 million in the previous quarter.

Mark B. Slaughter, chief executive officer and president, commented, "I was very pleased with our solid second quarter results and record EBITDA, reflecting strong growth in our core offshore rig communications business. We noted increases in sites served for offshore rigs, production platforms, international land rigs and energy maritime vessels, demonstrating strong execution across all of our core strategic growth initiatives. Compared to the first quarter, we did experience lower revenue from Nessco's systems integration business this quarter, though the contracted backlog and sales pipeline remain solid and in line with our expectations. With a favorable market outlook and our announcement last week that we will be acquiring Inmarsat's Energy Broadband business and will become a Global Xpress distribution partner, we are excited about the broadened capabilities to serve our customers and deliver returns for our shareholders."

A conference call for investors will be held at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time (10:00 a.m. Central Time) on Tuesday, August 6, 2013, to discuss RigNet's 2013 second quarter results. The call may be accessed live over the telephone by dialing +1 (877) 845-0777, or, for international callers, +1 (760) 298-5090. Interested parties may also listen to a simultaneous webcast of the conference call by logging onto RigNet's website at www.rig.net in the Investors — Webcasts andPresentations section. A replay of the conference call webcast will also be available on our website for approximately thirty days following the call.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains the following non-GAAP measures: Gross Profit (excluding depreciation and amortization) and Adjusted EBITDA. Gross Profit (excluding depreciation and amortization) and Adjusted EBITDA are financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. We refer you to the Company's most recent 10-K filing for the year ended December 31, 2012, for a more detailed discussion of the uses and limitations of our non-GAAP financial measures.

GAAP defines gross profit as revenue less cost of revenue, and includes in costs of revenue depreciation and amortization expenses related to revenue-generating long-lived and intangible assets. We define Gross Profit (excluding depreciation and amortization) as revenue less cost of revenue (excluding depreciation and amortization). This measure differs from the GAAP definition of gross profit as we do not include the impact of depreciation and amortization expenses related to revenue-generating long-lived and intangible assets which represent non-cash expenses. We use this measure to evaluate operating margins and the effectiveness of cost management.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) plus interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization, impairment of goodwill, (gain) loss on retirement of property and equipment, change in fair value of derivatives, stock-based compensation and IPO or merger/acquisition costs and related bonuses. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss), operating income (loss) or any other measure of financial performance calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.
