LOS ANGELES, Aug. 6, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Eagle Entertainment Inc.

Results for Q2 2015 reached record levels, as GEE posted revenue of $102.4 million and record Adjusted EBITDA* of $12.2 million. Adjusted EBITDA* grew 88% year-over-year due to continued growth in the Company's core businesses, the successful integration of past acquisitions, leverage in the Connectivity services model, and improved bandwidth pricing. Year-over-year revenue growth was driven by increases in the number of Content customers, higher Connectivity system usage, and greater digital media revenue, partially offset by lower equipment revenue. Excluding equipment revenue, which tends to be low-margin and volatile quarter to quarter, revenue grew by 11% year-over-year.

In recent weeks, GEE completed four M&A transactions. Two of these, Western Outdoor Interactive (WOI), and certain assets of RMG Networks, further strengthen the company's core content services and digital media businesses (http://investors.geemedia.com/releasedetail.cfm?ReleaseID=920376). The two most recent, navAero and masFlight, will serve as building blocks of GEE's operations solutions capabilities (http://investors.geemedia.com/releases.cfm). 

"We are very pleased with the continued improvements in our financial performance over the past year. GEE continues to grow and we are driving margin improvements through the operating leverage inherent in our Connectivity business and the realization of promised acquisition synergies," commented Dave Davis, Chief Executive Officer of GEE. "Our Content business continues to perform very well and we have won contracts at twenty new airlines so far this year. Additionally, we added a key Connectivity, digital media and operations solutions customer to GEE with the win at flydubai. We expect to begin installs of our AIRCONNECT system on flydubai aircraft in the fourth quarter."

"One of the strengths of our team is our ability to identify, acquire and integrate companies that will expand GEE's market opportunities. With the addition of these companies, we have bolstered our highly profitable applications development and games businesses and added capabilities in sponsorship and advertising sales. Further, masflight and navAero bring us key capabilities to acquire, store, and analyze aircraft operations information that will drive efficiencies and cost savings in the aviation industry," continued Davis.

"We achieved key milestones in the second quarter, including record Content and Connectivity services revenue and Adjusted EBITDA. We also generated positive cash flow from operations and operating income for the first time since GEE's inception," said Michael Zemetra, Chief Financial Officer. "Our ability to generate positive cash flow, realize significant synergies from past acquisitions, plus our strong balance sheet provide us with a solid foundation to continue making growth-orientated investments."

  Three Months Ended June 30,
  2015 2014
     
Revenue:    
Content  $ 73.8  $ 71.5
Connectivity 28.6 26.6
Total Revenues  $ 102.4  $ 98.1
Adjusted EBITDA*  $ 12.2  $ 6.5
Net income  $ 13.0  $ 12.0

Capital expenditures for Q2 2015 totaled approximately $3.2 million. The Company had positive cash flow from operations during the quarter and finished with approximately $282.5 million in cash, $69.7 million in convertible debt, excluding $13.0 million in convertible debt classified as equity, and approximately $2.7 million in other debt. 

Segment Results

Content segment revenue grew by $2.3 million, or 3%, to $73.8 million in Q2 2015 versus $71.5 million in Q2 2014, driven by growth across our content licensing business from airlines in the Middle East, Asia and the U.S., as well as maritime, offset by a decline in our content distribution business due to a stronger title slate in Q2 2014 versus Q2 2015. Content segment contribution margin improved to 35% in Q2 2015 versus 26% in Q2 2014 largely due to a higher mix of revenue from content under fixed cost arrangements and improved pricing, successful realization of synergies from prior acquisitions and lower amortization expense from content rights we acquired through the acquisition of Advanced Inflight Alliance AG ("AIA"). 

Connectivity segment revenue grew by $2.0 million, or 8%, to $28.6 million in Q2 2015 versus $26.6 million in Q2 2014, principally due to an overall increase in Connectivity services revenue of $7.3 million, offset by a decrease in Connectivity equipment revenue of $5.3 million. Connectivity services revenue grew 42% versus Q2 2014 and Connectivity services segment contribution margin improved to 41% in Q2 2015 versus 23% in Q2 2014, representing an 18 percentage point improvement in margin year-over-year, demonstrating the leverage in our operating model. The revenue growth and contribution margin expansion were driven by an increase in the number of connected planes, growth in digital media service offerings and improved satellite bandwidth costs. Connectivity equipment revenue declined by $5.3 million, or 57% to $4.0 million in Q2 2015 versus $9.3 million in Q2 2014, due to the timing of equipment shipments versus installations.

Recent Highlights

Key accomplishments since announcing first quarter 2015 results include the following:

  • Groundbreaking Agreement with flydubai to Deploy Fully-Integrated Inflight Entertainment and Connectivity (IFE&C) System. GEE will equip flydubai's current and future fleet of Next-Generation Boeing 737-800 aircraft with GEE's broadband AIRCONNECT satellite connectivity system. The deployment on flydubai will be the industry's first to provide a bundled solution of inflight connectivity, in-seat IFE content and a provision for operations data, all from a single provider.
  • Won 12 new airline customers for Content services since we announced Q1 2015 earnings, with expected annual revenue in excess of $13 million. So far in 2015, GEE has signed 20 new airline Content services contracts with expected annual revenue of approximately $20 million.
  • Subsequent to Q2 2015, completed four M&A transactions. Together, these deals strengthen and expand the scope of GEE's current offerings. Each of these acquisitions brings an outstanding list of airline and aerospace customers to GEE, expanding the number of users of our products or services. Combined, GEE spent just over $50 million in cash on these four acquisitions. In addition, there are contingent payments of approximately $25 million through 2019 that are dependent on future performance.
    • WOI: With the acquisition of WOI, GEE has expanded its digital media development expertise and its already strong business providing apps and games to the inflight entertainment (IFE) market, while also gaining a strong team of developers based in Mumbai, India. WOI brings over 30 years of experience and deep relationships with leading airlines and aviation hardware providers to GEE, from which GEE expects to realize strong synergies.
    • Operations Solutions: The acquisitions of both masFlight and NavAero provide high growth stepping stones for GEE's entry into Operations Solutions. These acquisitions complement GEE's existing connectivity solution and customer base, while at the same time providing a new, diversified source of future revenue to GEE.
      • masFlight: masFlight is an early-stage software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that provides big data analytics and business intelligence solutions focused on aviation operations. These products provide masflight's blue-chip customer base, including major airlines and OEM's, with solutions to reduce costs and improve operational efficiencies.
      • NavAero: NavAero provides hardware systems for use in Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) tablets and computers, one of the fastest growing technologies in the airline industry. Its systems have the capability to take operations data directly from aircraft data buses. The data can subsequently be relayed in real-time through an aircraft's connectivity system for use in GEE's Operations Solutions applications, providing new opportunities for sales growth across the GEE platform.
    • Certain assets from RMG Networks: This bolsters GEE's already strong presence for inflight advertising and sponsorship, including the addition of technology, personnel and customers.
  • GEE's AIRCONNECT antenna system is now fully catalog offerable on new Boeing 737 airplanes. With inclusion in the catalog, airlines can now order new Boeing 737 airplanes with the option of including GEE's AIRCONNECT Ku antenna and system in their aircraft prior to delivery.
  • Partners with UIEvolution to offer first fully integrated end-to-end solution to the maritime market. The strategic partnership offers a fully integrated end-to-end content delivery solution to cruise ship passengers.
  • Air China and Air France/Orange trials remain on track, The Air China trial is in the process of obtaining regulatory approval and the Air France/Orange trial is slated for installation in the late fall timeframe.
  • New Global Antenna AIRCONNECT continues to meet its milestones, including passing its preliminary design review and remains on track for launch in mid-2016.
  • Reduced Warrant Overhang by over two-thirds in the last year: In August, GEE successfully repurchased approximately 3.0 million public warrants in exchange for approximately 1.0 million common shares. In less than twelve months, GEE has reduced its public and sponsor warrant overhang from 22.8 million warrants to 7.1 million warrants today.

Full Year 2015 Guidance

The Company is updating its guidance for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2015 as follows:

  • Revenue in the range of $415-435 million (unchanged)
  • Adjusted EBITDA* in the range of $45-55 million (unchanged)
  • Capitalized expenditures in the range of $18-20 million; the increase is due to a direct purchase of satellite transponders that will reduce future operating costs (previously $10-13 million)
  • GEE has an installation backlog for its Ku-band AIRCONNECT system satellite connectivity system of 200-225 units (previously 175-200 units), representing approximately 2 years of installation activity.

* About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, or GAAP, we present Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, as a measure of our performance. The presentation of Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, or superior to, net income (loss) or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP or as an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities or any other measures of our cash flow or liquidity. For more information on this non-GAAP financial measure, please see the table entitled "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measure to GAAP Measure" at the end of this release.

Adjusted EBITDA is the primary measure used by our management and board of directors to understand and evaluate our financial performance and operating trends, including period to period comparisons, to prepare and approve our annual budget and to develop short and long term operational plans. Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA is the primary measure used by the compensation committee of our board of directors to establish the funding targets for and fund the annual bonus pool for our employees and executives. We believe our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors both because it allows for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision-making and our management frequently uses it in discussions with investors, commercial bankers, securities analysts and other users of our financial statements.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders before, when applicable, net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interests, income tax expense (benefit), other (income) expense, depreciation and amortization, as further adjusted to eliminate the impact of, when applicable, stock-based compensation, acquisition and realignment costs, restructuring charges, F/X gain (loss) on intercompany loans and any gains or losses on certain asset sales or dispositions. Other income (expense), acquisition and realignment costs and restructuring charges include such items, when applicable, as (a) non-cash GAAP purchase accounting adjustments for certain deferred revenue and costs, (b) legal, accounting and other professional fees directly attributable to acquisition activity, (c) employee severance payments and third party professional fees directly attributable to acquisition or corporate realignment activities, (d) certain non-recurring expenses associated with our expansion into China that did not generate associated revenue in 2014, (e) legal settlements or reserves for legal settlements in the period that pertain to historical matters that existed at acquired companies prior to their purchase date, (f) impairment of a portion of certain receivables directly attributable to a customer undergoing economic hardships from trade sanctions imposed by the European Union and the United States on Russia, (g) changes in the fair value of our derivative financial instruments and (h) any restructuring charges in the period pursuant to our integration plan announced on September 23, 2014. Management does not consider these costs to be indicative of our core operating results.

With respect to projected full year 2015 Adjusted EBITDA, a quantitative reconciliation is not available without unreasonable efforts, and we are unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information.
