Telesat Holdings Inc. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2015

Telesat Holdings Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported revenue of CAD 242,220,000 against CAD 227,797,000 a year ago. Operating income was CAD 135,529,000 against CAD 116,841,000 a year ago.

Adjusted EBITDA was CAD 198,372,000 against CAD 181,973,000 a year ago. The decrease in revenue, which was principally from the energy and resource industries, was partially offset by an increase in revenue earned during the quarter from short-term services provided to another satellite operator. For the nine months, the company reported revenue of CAD 698,219,000 against CAD 695,396,000 a year ago. Operating income was CAD 388,621,000 against CAD 367,821,000 a year ago.

Adjusted EBITDA was CAD 569,645,000 against CAD 562,928,000 a year ago. Net cash from operating activities was CAD 320,971,000 against CAD 321,374,000 a year ago. Purchase of other property and equipment was CAD 7,040,000 against CAD 7,741,000 a year ago. Purchase of intangible assets was CAD 5,000 against CAD 75,000 a year ago. The decrease in revenue was due to a reduction in short-term services provided to other satellite operators in the first nine months of 2015 compared to the first nine months of 2014, as well as lower revenue from the energy and resource industries and certain international markets.
