RigNet Announces Third Quarter 2014 Earnings Results

HOUSTON, Nov. 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RigNet, Inc. (Nasdaq:RNET), a leading global technology solutions provider to the oil and gas industry, today reported quarterly results for the quarter ended September 30, 2014.

Revenue was a record $87.8 million for the third quarter, including $22.7 million from the Enterprise Energy business unit acquired from Inmarsat. Organic revenue increased by $8.3 million, or 14.6%, for the three months ended September 30, 2014, as compared to the same period of 2013, primarily due to increased revenue-per-site and increased sites served. Revenue increased by $7.2 million, or 8.9%, for the three months ended September 30, 2014, as compared to the previous quarter due to continued growth in our managed communications business and increased contributions from our Telecoms Systems Integration business segment. Organic revenue increased by $3.7 million, or 6.0%, for the three months ended September 30, 2014, as compared to the previous quarter due to increased revenue-per-site and increased offshore rig sites served.

Quarterly Adjusted EBITDA was a record $20.2 million, or 23.0% of revenue, representing an increase of $5.7 million, or 39.7%, over the same quarter last year and an increase of $1.4 million, or 7.3%, over the previous quarter. The increase resulted from organic growth in our core managed communications business and, to a lesser extent, contributions from our acquisition.  

Net income attributable to common stockholders was a record $5.9 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, for the third quarter, an increase of $0.20 per diluted share, or 144.6%, over the same quarter last year, and an increase of $0.02 per diluted share, or 4.0%, over the previous quarter.

Capital expenditures were $10.0 million in the third quarter compared to $9.1 million in the same quarter last year and $11.6 million in the previous quarter.

Mark B. Slaughter, chief executive officer and president, commented, "I was very pleased with our team's ability to deliver record results in the third quarter, which demonstrates that our long-term business model is levered toward growing bandwidth and solutions needs at the edge that helps our customers drive improvements in productivity, efficiency and safety. Looking forward, we continue to believe the increased digitization of the oilfield supports 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.
