RigNet Announces Second Quarter 2017 Earnings Results

 HOUSTON, Aug. 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RigNet, Inc. (NASDAQ:RNET), a leading global provider of customized systems and solutions serving customers with complex data networking and operational requirements, today reported results for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Quarterly revenue was $49.2 million representing an increase of $1.1 million compared to the prior quarter and a decrease of $5.7 million compared to the prior year quarter. The revenue increase compared to the prior quarter reflects a $2.1 million increase in SI&A revenue partially offset by a $1.0 million decrease in Managed Service revenue. The decrease compared to the prior year quarter reflects a $7.2 million decrease in Managed Services revenue partially offset by a $1.4 million increase in SI&A revenue. Revenue continues to be impacted by previously announced reductions in offshore drilling.

GAAP net loss attributable to common stockholders was $4.2 million, or $0.24 per share, compared to net loss attributable to common stockholders of $2.0 million, or $0.11 per share, in the prior quarter and net loss attributable to common stockholders of $4.8 million, or $0.27 per share, in the prior year quarter.

Quarterly Adjusted EBITDA was $6.1 million compared to $7.2 million in the prior quarter and $8.6 million in the prior year quarter. The decrease compared to the prior quarter was due primarily to ongoing operating expenses. The decrease compared to the prior year quarter was due primarily to decreased revenue partially offset by a reduction in ongoing operating expenses.

Capital expenditures were $4.9 million compared to $3.2 million in the prior quarter and $4.7 million in the prior year quarter.  Unlevered Free Cash Flow, defined as Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures, was $1.1 million compared to $4.1 million in the prior quarter and $4.0 million in the prior year quarter.

In the quarter ended June 30, 2017, the Company recorded $1.9 million in acquisition costs, and a gain of $0.8 million for the change in fair value of an earn-out. In the quarter ended June 30, 2016, the Company recorded restructuring charges of $1.1 million, $0.4 million of impairment of intangible assets, $0.2 million of CEO search costs and ERP implementation costs of $0.6 million. The restructuring charges and acquisition costs are added back to net loss in our non-GAAP measures below.

Steven E. Pickett, chief executive officer and president, commented, "Our recent acquisition of Cyphre, in conjunction with our acquisitions of substantially all of the assets of DTS and ESS, have helped advance our stated strategies to build and grow our over-the-top portfolio and to diversify our revenue stream.  These acquisitions also demonstrate our commitment to expand the RigNet value proposition to our customers while increasing RigNet's addressable market. Furthermore, during the second quarter, our team expanded RigNet's core market position by increasing the number of sites we serve by 5% quarter over quarter while delivering $1.1m in Unlevered Free Cash Flow."
