HOUSTON, Nov. 08, 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 September 30, 2018.

“RigNet continues to execute on our strategic growth plan which focuses on enabling our customers to realize the tangible business benefits of digital transformation,” said Steven Pickett, Chief Executive Officer and President. “In the third quarter of 2018, and for the second consecutive quarter, the team grew both consolidated revenue and Adjusted EBITDA. Furthermore, revenue grew across all segments during the third quarter of 2018, both sequentially and year-on-year. Our customers continue to see increasing value in our bundled Apps & IoT solutions, particularly with respect to IntelieTM, our real time machine learning and artificial intelligence platform which secured new contracts with both onshore and offshore customers during the quarter.”

Quarterly revenue was $64.8 million, an increase of $13.9 million, or 27.4%, compared to the third quarter 2017 and an increase of $4.8 million, or 7.9%, compared to the prior quarter. Compared to the third quarter 2017, revenue grew in all segments: a $6.7 million increase in Systems Integration (SI) revenue, a $4.7 million increase in Managed Services (MS) revenue, and a $2.5 million increase in Apps & IoT. The revenue increase compared to the prior quarter reflects a $3.2 million increase in MS revenue, a $0.9 million increase in Apps & IoT, and a $0.6 million increase in SI revenue.

Net loss attributable to common stockholders was $2.8 million, or $0.15 per share, compared to net loss attributable to common stockholders of $4.2 million, or $0.23 per share, in the third quarter 2017 and net loss attributable to common stockholders of $4.3 million, or $0.23 per share, in the prior quarter.

Project backlog (using percentage of completion accounting) was $41.4 million compared to $31.5 million in the third quarter 2017 and $19.6 million in the prior quarter. The increase was driven by new project wins primarily in the United States, both onshore and offshore.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure defined below, was $8.7 million in the third quarter 2018 compared to $7.8 million in the third quarter 2017 and $8.1 million in the prior quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was $24.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to $21.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

The Company recorded $0.7 million in restructuring charges in the third quarter of 2018, as well as a $0.8 million decrease in the fair value of an earn-out related to the TECNOR acquisition, bringing the fair value to zero, and $0.9 million in acquisition costs. In the previous quarter, the Company recorded $2.8 million for the change in fair value of an earn-out related to the TECNOR acquisition and $0.3 million in acquisition costs. In the quarter ended September 30, 2017, the Company recorded $0.8 million in acquisition costs and $0.8 million in restructuring charges. The acquisition costs, restructuring charges and change in fair value of the earn-out are added back to net loss in our non-GAAP measure Adjusted EBITDA.

Capital expenditures for the three and nine months ending September 30, 2018 totaled $6.5 million and $19.7 million, respectively, compared to $5.9 million and $13.9 million, respectively, for the three and nine months ending September 30, 2017. Capital expenditures for the second quarter ending June 30, 2018 totaled $6.6 million.

Site count in the third quarter 2018 increased across all categories to 1,350 from 1,175 in the third quarter 2017 and 1,297 in the prior quarter.

Forward Looking Statements

This press release includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 – that is, statements related to the future, not past, events. Opinions, expectations with respect to conditions in the oil and gas industry, and customer perceptions of value are examples of forward-looking statements in this press release. Forward-looking statements are based on the current expectations and include any statement that does not directly relate to a current or historical fact. In this context, forward-looking statements often address our expected future business and financial performance, including the expected benefits of acquiring and integrating other businesses, and often contain words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “intend,”, “will”, “expect,” “plan” or other similar words. These forward-looking statements involve certain risks and uncertainties, including those risks set forth in Item 1A – Risk Factors of the Company’s most recent 10-K filing, and ultimately may not prove to be accurate. Actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. For further discussion of risks and uncertainties, individuals should refer to RigNet’s SEC filings. RigNet undertakes no obligation and does not intend to update these forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances occurring after this press release. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this press release. All forward-looking statements are qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure

This press release contains the non-GAAP measure Adjusted EBITDA, a measure we believe is useful to investors as a supplemental measure to evaluate overall operating performance and is an integral component of financial covenant ratios in our credit agreement. Adjusted EBITDA is a financial measure that is not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. We refer you to the Company’s recent 10-K filing for the year ended December 31, 2017 for a more detailed discussion of the uses and limitations of Adjusted EBITDA.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net loss plus interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization, impairment of goodwill, intangibles, property, plant and equipment, (gain) loss on sales of property, plant and equipment, net of retirements, change in fair value of earn-outs and contingent consideration, stock-based compensation, acquisition costs, executive departure costs, restructuring charges and non-recurring items.

A reconciliation of net loss to Adjusted EBITDA is found in the table below.
