Gogo Announces First Quarter 2014 Results

                  Gogo Announces First Quarter 2014 Results  Record quarterly revenue up 35 percent to $95.7 million  PR Newswire  ITASCA, Ill., May 12, 2014  ITASCA, Ill., May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gogo Inc. (Nasdaq: GOGO), a leading aircraft communications service provider to the global aviation industry, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2014.  GogoLOGO  Gogo reported record first quarter revenue of $95.7 million, up 35% year-over-year. Adjusted EBITDA for Q1 2014 was $5.3 million, up 87% from $2.9 million in Q1 2013, driven by strong performance by our CA-NA and BA segments that was partially offset by an increased segment loss in our CA-ROW segment as we continued to invest in our international expansion. Net loss attributable to common stock for Q1 2014 was $16.9 million, or $0.20 per share, compared to net loss attributable to common stock of $32.5 million, or $4.77 per share, in Q1 2013.  "We had an excellent first quarter, during which we produced strong financial results, achieved several important technical and business milestones, and launched connectivity service on Delta's international fleet," said Gogo's President and CEO, Michael Small. "Furthermore, we unveiled 2Ku - our new and exclusive communications technology for the global aviation industry. We also announced our partnership with Air Canada for its entire North American fleet. Our technology leadership, operational expertise, and suite of communications solutions continue to set us apart both in North America and internationally," added Mr. Small.  First Quarter 2014 Consolidated Financial Results    oRevenue increased to $95.7 million, up 35% from $70.8 million in Q1 2013.     Service revenue increased 32% to $72.3 million and equipment revenue     increased 48% to $23.4 million year-over-year.   oOperating expenses increased to $105.0 million, up 30% from $81.1 million     in Q1 2013. We incurred higher operating expenses primarily due to higher     cost of service expenses at CA-NA and BA as a result of increased service     revenue, and increased cost of equipment expenses at BA as a result of     increased equipment revenue. In CA-ROW, we incurred increased operating     expenses primarily due to higher satellite transponder and teleport fees,     and expenses related to the development and certification of our satellite     connectivity systems.   oAdjusted EBITDA increased to $5.3 million from $2.9 million in Q1 2013,     driven by strong growth in CA-NA and BA segment profit, offset in part by     increased segment loss in CA-ROW due to increased investment in our     international expansion.   oCash CAPEX, defined as capital expenditures net of airborne equipment     proceeds received from the airlines, increased to $28.6 million, up 6%     from $27.1 million in Q1 2013, driven primarily by investments in our ATG     network.   oAs of March 31, 2014, Gogo had cash and cash equivalents of $219.6 million     compared to $266.3 million as of December 31, 2013.  First Quarter 2014 Business Segment Financial Results    oCommercial Aviation - North America (CA-NA)         oWe ended the quarter with 2,056 aircraft online, up 9% from 1,878 at          March 31, 2013.        oAverage monthly service revenue per aircraft online, or ARPA,          increased to $9,199, up 20% from $7,696 in Q1 2013, driven primarily          by an 11% increase in take rate, to 6.9% in Q1 2014 from 6.2% in Q1          2013.        oTotal revenue increased to $57.1 million, up 32% from $43.4 million          in Q1 2013.        oSegment profit increased to $5.8 million, up $6.2 million from a          segment loss of $0.4 million in Q1 2013, due to strong revenue growth          and the timing of airborne equipment certification and development          expenses.    oBusiness Aviation (BA)         oWe ended the quarter with 2,250 ATG systems online, up 45% from 1,555          at March 31, 2013, and 5,252 satellite systems online, up 4% from          5,062 at March 31, 2013.        oService revenue increased to $15.8 million, up 44% from $10.9 million          in Q1 2013, driven by the increase in ATG systems online and higher          average monthly service revenue per aircraft online for both ATG and          satellite service.        oEquipment revenue increased to $22.8 million, up 49% from $15.2          million in Q1 2013, driven by a 41% increase in ATG units shipped to          241 for Q1 2014, up from 171 in Q1 2013, higher average revenue per          ATG unit shipped, and strong sales of the recently introduced Gogo          Text & Talk product.        oTotal revenue increased to $38.6 million, up 47% from $26.2 million          in Q1 2013.        oSegment profit increased to $16.5 million, up 74% from $9.5 million          in Q1 2013, and segment profit as a percentage of segment revenue          increased to 43% in Q1 2014, up from 36% in Q1 2013.    oCommercial Aviation - Rest of World (CA-ROW)         oWe launched our Ku-band satellite connectivity service on Delta's          international fleet in March of 2014 and ended the quarter with five          aircraft online. We expect to end 2014 with 50 to 100 CA-ROW aircraft          online.        oSegment loss increased to $16.9 million from a segment loss of $6.2          million in Q1 2013, due primarily to increased satellite transponder          and teleport fees, and expenses associated with the development and          certification of our aircraft satellite connectivity systems.  Recent Announcements    oWe received a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) from the FAA and     certification from the Japanese Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB) to install     our Ku-band satellite technology on Boeing 777-300 aircraft. This is our     fourth STC for international aircraft – we previously received STCs for     Boeing 747-400, 777-200, and Airbus 330 aircraft.   oWe announced our revolutionary 2Ku satellite connectivity technology,     which is initially expected to bring 70 mbps to the aircraft, and to be     commercially available in mid-2015.   oAir Canada selected Gogo as the in-flight connectivity provider for its     entire North American fleet of 130 aircraft, and expects to test Gogo's     2Ku and Global Xpress satellite connectivity systems on international     flights in 2015.   oAlaska Airlines announced that it will offer Gogo Vision on its full fleet     by the end of 2014.   oBA announced the launch of our next generation Iridium satellite     communications solution.   oWe announced that Gogo and Boeing signed a technical services agreement     that will enable us to pursue line-fit installation of our ATG-4 and     satellite solutions on Boeing aircraft.  Business Outlook  For the full year ending December 31, 2014, our guidance remains unchanged:    oTotal revenue of $400 million to $422 million         oCA-NA revenue of $240 million to $250 million        oBA revenue of $157 million to $167 million        oCA-ROW revenue of $3 million to $5 million    oAdjusted EBITDA of $8 million to $18 million   oCash CAPEX of $105 million to $125 million  "We expect continued strong growth in revenue fueled by strong secular trends and passenger adoption of new services. We continue to add capacity by upgrading aircraft to ATG-4 technology and had 534 aircraft equipped with ATG-4 systems at the end of March. We expect to see significant capacity increases with the introduction of our GTO and 2Ku airborne antennas, both of which are capable of delivering industry leading speeds of 70 mbps to the aircraft initially, and up to 100 mbps when spot beam Ku satellites are launched," commented Mr. Small.

We define aircraft online as the total number of     commercial aircraft on which our ATG network equipment is installed and     Gogo service has been made commercially available as of the last day of     each period presented.   oAverage monthly service revenue per aircraft online ("ARPA"). We define     ARPA as the aggregate service revenue for the period divided by the number     of months in the period, divided by the number of aircraft online during     the period (expressed as an average of the month end figures for each     month in such period).   oGross passenger opportunity ("GPO"). We define GPO as the estimated     aggregate number of passengers who board commercial aircraft on which Gogo     service has been available during the period presented. We calculate     passenger estimates by taking the maximum capacity of flights with Gogo     service, which is calculated by multiplying the number of flights flown by     Gogo-equipped aircraft, as published by Air Radio Inc. (ARINC), by the     number of seats on those aircraft, and adjusting the product by a     passenger load factor for each airline, which represents the percentage of     seats on aircraft that are occupied by passengers. Load factors are     provided to us by our airline partners and are based on historical data.   oTotal average revenue per passenger opportunity ("ARPP"). We define ARPP     as revenue from Gogo Connectivity, Gogo Vision, Gogo Signature Services     and other service revenue for the period, divided by GPO for the period.   oTotal average revenue per session ("ARPS"). We define ARPS as revenue from     Gogo Connectivity divided by the total number of sessions during the     period. A session, or a "use" of Gogo Connectivity, is defined as the use     by a unique passenger of Gogo Connectivity on a flight segment. Multiple     logins or purchases under the same user name during one flight segment     count as only one session.   oConnectivity 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 or unforeseen     technical issues. For the periods listed above, the number of sessions for     which we did not receive revenue was less than 3% of the total number of     sessions.

We define ATG aircraft online as the total number of     business aircraft for which we provide ATG services in operation as of the     last day of each period presented.   oAverage monthly service revenue per satellite aircraft online. We define     average monthly service revenue per satellite aircraft online as the     aggregate satellite service revenue for the period divided by the number     of months in the period, divided by the number of satellite aircraft     online during the period (expressed as an average of the month end figures     for each month in such period).   oAverage monthly service revenue per ATG aircraft online. We define average     monthly service revenue per ATG aircraft online as the aggregate ATG     service revenue for the period divided by the number of months in the     period, divided by the number of ATG aircraft online during the period     (expressed as an average of the month end figures for each month in such     period).   oUnits shipped. We define units shipped as the number of satellite or ATG     network equipment units, respectively, shipped during the period.   oAverage equipment revenue per satellite unit shipped.

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) fair value derivative adjustments, (ii) preferred stock dividends, (iii) accretion of preferred stock, (iv) stock-based compensation expense, (v) amortization of deferred airborne lease incentives and (vi) write off of deferred equity 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.  More specifically, we believe the exclusion of fair value derivative adjustments, Class A and Class B senior convertible preferred stock return and accretion of preferred stock from Adjusted EBITDA is appropriate because we do not believe such items are indicative of ongoing operating performance due to their non-recurring nature as a result of the conversion of all shares of preferred stock into shares of common stock upon consummation of our IPO in June 2013.  Additionally, 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 as determined using the Black-Scholes model 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, the expected life of the options and future dividends to be paid by the Company. 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 13 "Business Segments and Major Customers" of the first quarter 10-Q as filed with the SEC for a description of segment profit (loss). 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 form of connectivity agreements. See "—Key Components of Consolidated Statements of Operations—Cost of Service Revenue—Commercial Aviation North America" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 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 write off of deferred equity 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 represents net loss attributable to common stock before fair value derivative adjustments, Class A and Class B senior convertible preferred stock return and accretion of preferred stock. We present Adjusted Net Loss to eliminate the impact of such items because we do not consider those indicative of ongoing operating performance due to their non-recurring nature as a result of the conversion of all shares of preferred stock into shares of common stock in connection with our IPO in June 2013.  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, 2014 under our current capital structure, after giving effect to the initial public offering and the corresponding conversion of shares of preferred stock outstanding. 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 following our IPO on a consistent basis.  Cash CAPEX represents capital expenditures net of airborne equipment proceeds received from the airlines. 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.
