-- Quarterly revenue of $60.0 million consisting of: - Managed Services revenue of $41.7 million - Applications and Internet-of-Things (Apps & IoT) revenue of $6.6 million - Systems Integration revenue of $11.7 million -- Quarterly GAAP Net Loss attributable to common stockholders of $4.3 million, $0.23 per share -- Quarterly Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) of $8.1 million

HOUSTON, Aug. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RigNet, Inc. (NASDAQ: RNET), a global technology company that provides customized communications services, applications, real-time machine learning, and cybersecurity solutions, today reported results for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Quarterly revenue was $60.0 million representing an increase of $10.8 million, or 22.1%, compared to the prior year quarter and an increase of $6.2 million, or 11.5%, compared to the prior quarter. Compared to the prior year quarter revenue grew in all segments: a $5.6 million increase in Systems Integration revenue, a $4.1 million increase in Apps & IoT and a $1.1 million increase in Managed Services revenue. The revenue increase compared to the prior quarter reflects a $5.3 million increase in Systems Integration revenue, a $1.2 million increase in Apps & IoT, partially offset by a $0.3 million decrease in Managed Services revenue. Revenue increased due to acquisitions, site count growth and our strategy of growth into the application layer and internet-of-things space.

GAAP net loss attributable to common stockholders was $4.3 million, or $0.23 per share, compared to net loss attributable to common stockholders of $4.2 million, or $0.24 per share, in the prior year quarter and net loss attributable to common stockholders of $5.6 million, or $0.31 per share, in the prior quarter.

Quarterly Adjusted EBITDA was $8.1 million compared to $6.1 million in the prior year quarter and $7.4 million in the prior quarter. The increase was due primarily to increased operating activity and revenue.

Steven Pickett, chief executive officer and president, commented, “In the second quarter of 2018, the RigNet team delivered 22.1% revenue growth compared to the prior year quarter and 170.6% growth in the Apps & IoT segment compared to the prior year quarter. The RigNet team continues to demonstrate their ability to execute against our strategic growth plan. That plan has made RigNet uniquely able to support our customers’ digital transformation with services that are always connected, always secure, and always learning.”

In the quarter ended June 30, 2018, the Company recorded $2.8 million for the change in fair value of an earn-out and $0.3 million in acquisition costs. In the quarter ended March 31, 2018, the Company recorded $0.8 million in acquisition costs and $0.2 million in executive departure costs. 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. The acquisition costs, executive departure costs and change in fair value of the earn-out are added back to net loss in our non-GAAP measure Adjusted EBITDA below. In the third quarter of 2017, after the acquisition of Energy Satellite Services (ESS), the Company reorganized its business and reportable segments into Managed Services, Apps & IoT and Systems Integration. All historical segment financial data has been recast to conform to the current presentation.

A conference call for investors will be held at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time (10:00 a.m. Central Time) on Tuesday, August 7, 2018, to discuss RigNet’s second quarter 2018 results.
