Globecomm Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: GCOM), a leading communications solutions provider, today reported financial results for the fiscal 2013 first quarter ended September 30, 2012. Globecomm is reporting its financial results on a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis as well as adjusted EBITDA and adjusted diluted net income per common share, both non-GAAP financial measures, for which the Company provides detailed reconciliations on the attached tables. The following are highlights:
Fiscal Year 2013 First Quarter Results
Revenues for the Company’s fiscal 2013 first quarter increased 14.4% to $81.2 million as compared to $71.0 million in the same period last year. Revenues from services decreased 6.1% to $47.2 million as compared to $50.2 million in the same period last year. The decrease in services revenues was primarily due to a decrease in our access services offering in the government marketplace due to the reduction of services in Iraq. Revenues from infrastructure solutions increased by 64.0% to $34.0 million as compared to $20.7 million in the same period last year. The increase in revenue was primarily driven by the achievement of revenue milestones under a major government program which contributed approximately $11.7 million in revenue and carries lower than traditional infrastructure margins.
Net income for the Company’s fiscal 2013 first quarter decreased to $2.7 million or $0.12 of diluted net income per common share as compared to net income of $9.3 million, or $0.41 of diluted net income per common share in the same period last year. Excluding an earn-out gain in the prior period, adjusted diluted net income per common share for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 was flat at $0.12 as compared to the first quarter in fiscal 2012. During the first quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company recorded a gain for the change in fair value of the ComSource earn-out as a result of decreases in ComSource’s actual results from the previously forecasted performance. In accordance with GAAP, this change in the fair value of the earn-out resulted in a $6.5 million ($0.29 per diluted share) gain to net income. Net income was negatively affected by the reduction of services revenue; however this was offset by a reduction in operating expenses based on certain cost cutting initiatives. Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2013 decreased slightly to $8.0 million as compared to $8.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2012.
Management’s Review of Results and Expectations
David Hershberg, Chairman and CEO, said: “We are proud to report that Globecomm’s robust Long Island and Maryland facilities, both of which were in the path of Hurricane Sandy, coupled with the operations team, successfully provided 100% network uptime throughout the storm for our global customer base. Globecomm will continue to work with our partner Agility Recovery Solutions to assure continued business restoral services for their customers and are on call 24 X 7 to support clients across America. Globecomm’s combined engineering know-how and world-class global network provides us with a significant competitive advantage and remains the core of the Company’s value proposition. We remain excited by the opportunities we see in each of our verticals, most notably in the media and entertainment vertical, to leverage our engineering expertise and global network to create value-added service solutions. While our strategic focus is on increasing market share in our targeted vertical markets and growing our services revenue as the government vertical uncertainty persists, the infrastructure segment remains a critical element of our vision.
“The continued strong cash flow from operations and over $70 million of cash on the balance sheet provides us the flexibility to invest in our business, including new products and personnel, and selectively pursue strategic opportunities that will maximize shareholder value despite the head-winds we face in the near term. We generated $6.7 million in cash flow from operations in the quarter and we anticipate strong cash flow in fiscal 2013 as we continue to ship inventory from the NATO TSGT program.”
Keith Hall, President and COO, added: “The team executed well in Q1 with strategic government bookings in our infrastructure segment and continued diversification of services offerings. With the backdrop of government budget uncertainty, we continue to mature our value proposition as a global communication solution provider, as is evident by our recent success of TEMPO and M2M service awards. With the evolution of the Internet and mobile communications, we remain at the forefront of network and application innovation. Cloud and hybrid satellite network opportunities are evolving based on this innovation, and we continue to develop seamless user experiences. As we look to build toward the future, we will continue to enhance this value proposition and are excited about the opportunities it will afford us.”
Management Maintains Expectations for the Fiscal Year Ending June 30, 2013
Globecomm currently expects the following financial results for the fiscal year 2013:
Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure which represents net income before interest income, interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation, amortization expense, non-cash stock compensation expense and earn-out fair value adjustments. Globecomm believes this provides greater transparency by helping illustrate comparability between current and prior periods. Under an accounting pronouncement on business combinations, changes to the fair value of earn-out payments must be recognized in earnings. Therefore, the exclusion of the earn-out fair value adjustments in the adjusted EBITDA calculation provides better comparability.
Adjusted EBITDA does not represent cash flows as defined by GAAP. Globecomm discloses adjusted EBITDA since it is a financial measure commonly used in its industry. Because adjusted EBITDA facilitates internal comparisons of our historical financial position and operating performance on a more consistent basis, the Company also uses adjusted EBITDA in measuring performance relative to that of our competitors and in evaluating acquisition opportunities. The Company’s management regularly uses supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate the Company’s business and make operating decisions. Adjusted EBITDA is not meant to be considered a substitute or replacement for net income as prepared in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Reconciliation between GAAP net income and adjusted EBITDA is provided in a table immediately following the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
Reconciliation of adjusted diluted net income per common share excludes earn-out fair value adjustments, which is not in accordance with GAAP. However, Globecomm believes this measure provides greater transparency by helping illustrate comparability between current and prior periods. Non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures, and should be read only in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company’s management regularly uses supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate the Company’s business and make operating decisions.
