Record quarterly revenue up 23 percent to $142 million
May 6, 2016

CHICAGO, May 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Gogo Inc. (Nasdaq: GOGO), the global leader in providing broadband connectivity solutions and wireless entertainment to the aviation industry, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2016.

GogoLOGO.

First Quarter 2016 Consolidated Financial Results

  • Revenue increased to $141.7 million, up 23% from $115.5 million in Q1 2015. Service revenue increased to $118.7 million, up 24% from $95.4 million in Q1 2015.
  • Combined segment profit of CA-NA and BA increased to $34.0 million, up 29% from $26.4 million in Q1 2015.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased to $14.5 million, up 76% or $6.3 million from $8.2 million in Q1 2015.
  • Cash CAPEX of $24.2 million was down from $32.0 million in Q1 2015, primarily due to the timing of airborne equipment purchases.
  • As of March 31, 2016, we had cash and cash equivalents of $312.7 million.

"We are thrilled to announce 2Ku awards by Delta Air Lines and International Airlines Group, including British Airways, Iberia, and Aer Lingus, bringing our total 2Ku awards to over 1,000," said Gogo's President and CEO Michael Small. "We also are excited by the commercial launch of 2Ku on AeroMexico. Based on airline demand, we are accelerating 2Ku deployment and expect to exceed our 2016 target of 75 installs."

First Quarter 2016 Business Segment Financial Results

Commercial Aviation - North America (CA-NA)

  • Total revenue increased to $87.0 million, up 20% from $72.5 million in Q1 2015.
  • Aircraft online increased by 113 to reach 2,500, and approximately 230 aircraft were awarded but not yet installed as of March 31, 2016.
  • Average monthly service revenue per aircraft equivalent, or ARPA, of $11,137 was down slightly from $11,163 in Q1 2015, driven primarily by an increase in the number of regional jets online and a Gogo Vision airline launch promotion that occurred in Q1 2015. However, Q1 2016 ARPA increased an estimated 15% year-over-year excluding the impact of the Gogo Vision airline launch promotion and aircraft we have added since the beginning of 2015, which primarily includes regional jets and aircraft with new airline partners.
  • Segment profit increased to $13.8 million, up 44% from $9.6 million in Q1 2015. Segment profit as a percentage of segment revenue was 16% in Q1 2016, up from 13% in Q1 2015.

Business Aviation (BA)

  • Service revenue increased to $30.7 million, up 41% from $21.8 million in Q1 2015, driven primarily by a 23% increase in ATG systems online and a 15% increase in average monthly service revenue per ATG unit online.
  • Equipment revenue decreased to $19.4 million, down slightly from $19.7 million in Q1 2015.
  • Total segment revenue increased to $50.1 million, up 21% from $41.6 million in Q1 2015.
  • Segment profit increased to $20.2 million, up 20% from $16.8 million in Q1 2015. Segment profit as a percentage of segment revenue was 40% in Q1 2016, largely unchanged from Q1 2015.

Commercial Aviation - Rest of World (CA-ROW)

  • Total revenue increased to $4.6 million, up 227% from $1.4 million in Q1 2015 driven primarily by increases in aircraft online and higher average revenue per aircraft.
  • Gogo had 237 aircraft online flying on its global Ku satellite network as of March 31, 2016, up 35 aircraft from December 31, 2015. Gogo's awarded but not yet installed aircraft increased to over 600, including recent international aircraft awards.
  • Segment loss increased to $19.7 million, up 8% from $18.3 million in Q1 2015, primarily due to higher engineering, design and development expenses related to the roll out of our next generation 2Ku technology.

Recent Developments

  • Gogo awarded but not yet installed 2Ku aircraft increased to more than 1,000 aircraft including recent awards.
  • Delta Air Lines increased its total commitment to install 2Ku to more than 600 aircraft.
  • Gogo was selected by International Airlines Group to bring its 2Ku technology to over 130 aircraft operated by British Airways, Iberia and Aer Lingus. The first British Airways aircraft is expected to be in service in early 2017.
  • Air Canada selected Gogo's 2Ku in-flight connectivity and entertainment services for its entire wide-body international fleet, including Boeing 787 and 777 aircraft.
  • Gogo was selected by Shareco Technologies of China to provide Gogo's 2Ku in-flight connectivity and entertainment solution for installation on approximately 50 aircraft in China operated by Shareco's partners, including Hainan Airlines and Beijing Capital Airlines.
  • Gogo launched 2Ku service on five AeroMexico aircraft.
  • Gogo partnered with Airbus Corporate Jet Centre to install 2Ku technology on A350 aircraft on a retrofit basis, allowing airlines to receive new aircraft from Airbus with connectivity equipment already installed.
  • Gogo signed multi-Ghz capacity deals with SES and Intelsat for capacity on their high-throughput satellites that together with the proposed OneWeb network of satellites, will enable high performance service on polar flights.
  • Gogo announced its new satellite modem capable of delivering network speeds of up to 400 Mbps which is expected to be commercially available in 2017.
  • Gogo's Business Aviation division successfully completed the initial phase of flight testing for Gogo Biz 4G service, its next generation connectivity offering for the business aviation market, which is scheduled for first customer shipment in early 2017.

"Our strong financial and operating performance coupled with aircraft awards on three continents give us great momentum to continue to drive growth in revenue and profitability," said Gogo's Executive Vice President and CFO, Norman Smagley.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report certain non-GAAP financial measurements, including Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Loss Per Share and Cash CAPEX in the supplemental tables below.  Management uses Adjusted EBITDA and Cash CAPEX for business planning purposes, including managing our business against internally projected results of operations and measuring our performance and liquidity. Management prepares Adjusted Net Loss Per Share for investors, securities analysts and other users of our financial statements for use in evaluating our performance under our current capital structure.  These supplemental performance measures also provide another basis for comparing period-to-period results by excluding potential differences caused by non-operational and unusual or non-recurring items. These supplemental performance measurements may vary from and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Loss Per Share and Cash CAPEX are not recognized measurements under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP, and when analyzing our performance or liquidity, as applicable, investors should (i) evaluate each adjustment in our reconciliation to net loss attributable to common stock, and the explanatory footnotes regarding those adjustments, (ii) use Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Loss Per Share in addition to, and not as an alternative to, net loss attributable to common stock as a measure of operating results, and (iii) use Cash CAPEX in addition to, and not as an alternative to, consolidated capital expenditures when evaluating our liquidity.

compliance with anti-corruption laws and regulations in the jurisdictions in which we operate, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the (U.K.) Bribery Act 2010; restrictions on the ability of U.S. companies to do business in foreign countries, including, among others, restrictions imposed by the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control; difficulties in collecting accounts receivable. 

Additional information concerning these and other factors can be found under the caption "Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

  • Aircraft online. We define aircraft online as the total number of commercial aircraft on which our equipment is installed and service has been made commercially available as of the last day of each period presented.  We assign aircraft to CA-NA or CA-ROW at the time of contract signing as follows: (i) all aircraft operated by North American airlines and under contract for ATG or ATG-4 service are assigned to CA-NA, (ii) all aircraft operated by North American airlines and under a contract for satellite service are assigned to CA-NA or CA-ROW based on whether the routes flown by such aircraft under the contract are anticipated to be predominantly within or outside of North America at the time the contract is signed, and (iii) all aircraft operated by non-North American airlines and under contract are assigned to CA-ROW.
  • Aircraft equivalents. We define aircraft equivalents for a segment as the total number of commercial aircraft online (as defined above) multiplied by the percentage of flights flown within the scope of that segment, rounded to the nearest whole aircraft and expressed as an average of the month end figures for each month in such period.  This methodology takes into account the fact that during a particular period certain aircraft may fly routes outside the scope of the segment to which they are assigned for purposes of the calculation of aircraft online.
  • Average monthly service revenue per aircraft equivalent ("ARPA").  We define ARPA for a segment as the aggregate service revenue plus monthly service fees included as a reduction to cost of service revenue for that segment for the period divided by the number of months in the period, divided by the number of aircraft equivalents (as defined above) for that segment during the period. Prior to the three month period ended March 31, 2016, aircraft online were used as the denominator to calculate ARPA. Beginning with the three month period ended March 31, 2016, ARPA is calculated by using aircraft equivalents as the denominator. We believe the revised ARPA methodology more accurately reflects ARPA by segment because it better reflects the number of aircraft that actually generated the revenue while flying within the scope of each segment during a specific period. ARPA for the CA-NA segment for the three month period ended March 31, 2015, which was $11,194 when originally reported, has been revised to $11,163 to reflect the change in methodology. 
  • Gross passenger opportunity ("GPO"). We define GPO as the aggregate number of passengers who board commercial aircraft on which Gogo service has been available during the period presented. When available directly from our airline partners, we aggregate actual passenger counts across flights on Gogo-equipped aircraft.  When not available directly from our airline partners, we estimate GPO.  Estimated GPO is calculated by first estimating the number of flights occurring on each Gogo-equipped aircraft, then multiplying by the number of seats on that aircraft, and finally multiplying by a seat factor that is determined from historical information provided to us in arrears by our airline partners.  The estimated number of flights is derived from real-time flight information provided to our front-end systems by Air Radio Inc. (ARINC), direct airline feeds and supplementary third-party data sources.  These aircraft-level estimates are then aggregated with actual airline-provided passenger counts to obtain total GPO. 
  • Total average revenue per session ("ARPS"). We define ARPS as revenue from Passenger Connectivity, excluding non-session related revenue, divided by the total number of sessions during the period. A session, or a "use" of Passenger Connectivity, is defined as the use by a unique passenger of Passenger Connectivity on a flight segment. Multiple logins or purchases under the same user name during one flight segment count as only one session.
  • Connectivity take rate. We define connectivity take rate as the number of sessions during the period expressed as a percentage of GPO. Included in our connectivity take-rate calculation are sessions for which we did not receive revenue, including those provided pursuant to free promotional campaigns and, to a lesser extent, as a result of complimentary passes distributed by our customer service representatives for unforeseen technical issues. For the periods listed above, the number of sessions for which we did not receive revenue was not material.

Definition of Non-GAAP Measures

EBITDA represents net income (loss) attributable to common stock before income taxes, interest income, interest expense, depreciation expense and amortization of other intangible assets.

Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA adjusted for (i) stock-based compensation expense, (ii) amortization of deferred airborne lease incentives and (iii) adjustment to deferred financing costs. Our management believes that the use of Adjusted EBITDA eliminates items that, management believes, have less bearing on our operating performance, thereby highlighting trends in our core business which may not otherwise be apparent. It also provides an assessment of controllable expenses, which are indicators management uses to determine whether current spending decisions need to be adjusted in order to meet financial goals and achieve optimal financial performance.

We believe the exclusion of stock-based compensation expense from Adjusted EBITDA is appropriate given the significant variation in expense that can result from using the Black-Scholes model to determine the fair value of such compensation. The fair value of our stock options are determined using the Black-Scholes model and varies based on fluctuations in the assumptions used in this model, including inputs that are not necessarily directly related to the performance of our business, such as the expected volatility, the risk-free interest rate and the expected life of the options. Therefore, we believe the exclusion of this cost provides a clearer view of the operating performance of our business. Further, stock option grants made at a certain price and point in time do not necessarily reflect how our business is performing at any particular time. While we believe that investors should have information about any dilutive effect of outstanding options and the cost of that compensation, we also believe that stockholders should have the ability to consider our performance using a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes these costs and that management uses to evaluate our business.

We believe the exclusion of the amortization of deferred airborne lease incentives from Adjusted EBITDA is useful as it allows an investor to view operating performance across time periods in a manner consistent with how management measures segment profit and loss (see Note 14, "Business Segments and Major Customers" for a description of segment profit (loss) in our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements). Management evaluates segment profit and loss in this manner, excluding the amortization of deferred airborne lease incentives, because such presentation reflects operating decisions and activities from the current period, without regard to the prior period decision or the form of connectivity agreements. See "—Key Components of Consolidated Statements of Operations—Cost of Service Revenue—Commercial Aviation North America and Rest of World" in our 2015 10-K for a discussion of the accounting treatment of deferred airborne lease incentives.

We believe it is useful to an understanding of our operating performance to exclude the adjustment to deferred financing costs from Adjusted EBITDA because of the non-recurring nature of this charge.

We also present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental performance measure because we believe that this measure provides investors, securities analysts and other users of our financial statements with important supplemental information with which to evaluate our performance and to enable them to assess our performance on the same basis as management.

Adjusted Net Loss Per Share represents net loss attributable to common stock per share—basic and diluted, adjusted to reflect the number of shares of common stock outstanding as of March 31, 2016 under our current capital structure, after giving effect to the shares of our common stock effectively repurchased as part of the Forward Transactions entered into in connection with the issuance of the Convertible Notes.  We present Adjusted Net Loss Per Share to provide investors, securities analysts and other users of our financial statements with important supplemental information with which to evaluate our performance considering our current capital structure and the shares outstanding after giving effect to the Forward Transactions.

Cash CAPEX represents capital expenditures net of airborne equipment proceeds received from the airlines and incentives paid to us by landlords under certain facilities leases. We believe Cash CAPEX provides a more representative indication of our liquidity requirements with respect to capital expenditures, as under certain agreements with our airline partners we are reimbursed for all or a substantial portion of the cost of our airborne equipment, thereby reducing our cash capital requirements.
