RigNet Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Earnings Results

HOUSTON, March 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RigNet, Inc. (Nasdaq:RNET), a leading global provider of remote communications services to the oil and gas industry, today reported results for the quarterly and full year periods ended December 31, 2013.

Record revenue of $59.7 million for the fourth quarter represents an increase of $10.4 million, or 21.2%, for the three months ended December 31, 2013, as compared to the same period of 2012, primarily due to increased sites served and increased revenue-per-site. Revenue increased by $2.9 million, or 5.0%, for the three months ended December 31, 2013, as compared to the previous quarter for the same reasons.

Record Adjusted EBITDA of $15.2 million in the fourth quarter, or 25.5% of revenue, represents an increase of $3.4 million, or 28.7%, over the same quarter last year and an increase of $0.8 million, or 5.2%, over the previous quarter. These increases are primarily due to growth in our core offshore business partially offset by costs associated with headcount additions to support our continued growth.

Net income attributable to common stockholders was $5.4 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter. This amount includes $1.3 million of acquisition costs associated with the purchase of Inmarsat's Energy Broadband business, which closed on January 31, 2014. Excluding acquisition costs, net income attributable to common stockholders was $6.7 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, an increase of $0.17 per diluted share, or 77.6%, over the same quarter last year and an increase of $0.09 per diluted share, or 30.6%, over the previous quarter.

Capital expenditures were $7.7 million in the fourth quarter compared to $5.3 million in the same quarter last year and $9.1 million in the previous quarter.

Mark B. Slaughter, chief executive officer and president, commented, "I was very pleased with our strong fourth quarter results, which included record revenue and EBITDA, reflecting continued strong growth in our core offshore rig communications business. Subsequent to year-end, we closed the Inmarsat strategic transaction on January 31 and have integration efforts well underway. We are delighted with our new long-term relationship with Inmarsat that includes our acquisition of their Enterprise Energy business unit as well as our becoming a premier distribution partner in oil and gas for their Global Express and L-band service platforms. This transaction brings us broadened services and capabilities that will better serve our customers and position the Company to enhance returns to stockholders. Looking forward, we are maintaining a positive view of the market environment as we advance our strategy of becoming a technology solutions provider across the life of the field."

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, 2013, 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.
