ViaSat Announces First Quarter Results
CARLSBAD, Calif., Aug 09, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX News Network/ -- ViaSat Inc. (Nasdaq: VSAT), an innovator in satellite and other wireless networking systems and services, today announced financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2011. The fiscal first quarter results include new contract awards of $152.9 million, revenues of $192.0 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $37.6 million and non-GAAP diluted net income attributable to ViaSat common stockholders of $0.23 per share, or $0.08 per share on a diluted GAAP basis. Included in these first quarter results was a pre-tax expense of $8.5 million, or $0.12 per share, resulting from an increase in estimated costs on a government satellite communications development program.
"ViaSat generated healthy year-over-year growth in revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, orders and contract awards, and sales backlog, but results were impacted by the program expense as well as delays in contract award decisions on a number of government follow-on and competitive contracts," said Mark Dankberg, Chairman and CEO of ViaSat. "We anticipate that several potentially significant awards will be decided within the current quarter. The defense budget is clearly under increasing pressure, leading to ordering delays throughout the defense procurement market, but we believe that pressure also creates a more receptive market for ViaSat's lower cost systems. Our strong competitive positions in expected growth segments such as airborne intelligence, situational awareness, data links, and cyber security afford an opportunity to accelerate and build on the momentum from our recent Blue Force Tracking-2 contract award. The Blue Force Tracking initial contract ceiling value is our second largest ever and was awarded shortly after the end of the first quarter."

Government Systems Segment
The Government Systems segment recorded quarterly revenues of $88.8 million, a 4% decrease over the first quarter of fiscal year 2010. The decrease was primarily related to lower sales of information assurance and tactical data link products, offset by higher sales of government satellite communication systems. New contract awards in our Government Systems segment for the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 were $72.6 million.
In June 2010, as a result of certain systems integration testing, we determined that significant additional rework was required in order to complete a government satellite communication program. Following the testing and subsequent internal reviews and analyses, we recorded an additional forward loss of $8.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 for estimated additional labor and materials required to complete the program.
Commercial Networks Segment
For the Commercial Networks segment, revenues were $45.6 million for the first quarter, which was a 28% decrease from the first quarter of fiscal year 2010. The revenue decrease was primarily due to a reduction in sales of enterprise VSAT products, consumer broadband products, which was partly due to ViaSat no longer recognizing revenue for equipment sales to WildBlue following our acquisition of WildBlue in December 2009, and satellite networking technology development programs, offset by increased revenue in our antenna systems product group. New contract awards in our Commercial Networks segment for the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 were $24.5 million.
Satellite Services Segment
Our Satellite Services segment contributed revenues of $57.5 million for the first quarter, which was a $55.0 million increase compared to the first quarter of fiscal year 2010. The revenue increase was primarily related to the acquisition of WildBlue in the third quarter of fiscal year 2010, as well as growth in our mobile broadband services. New contract awards in our Satellite Services segment for the first quarter were $55.8 million.
Selected First Quarter 2011 Business Highlights

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
To supplement ViaSat's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), ViaSat uses non-GAAP net income attributable to ViaSat Inc. and Adjusted EBITDA, measures ViaSat believes are appropriate to enhance an overall understanding of ViaSat's past financial performance and prospects for the future. Non-GAAP net income attributable to ViaSat Inc. excludes the effects of amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition related expenses, and non-cash stock-based compensation expenses, net of tax. We believe the non-GAAP results provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding specific expenses that we believe are not indicative of our core operating results. In addition, since we have historically reported non-GAAP results to the investment community, we believe the inclusion of non-GAAP numbers provides consistency in our financial reporting and facilitates comparisons to the company's historical operating results. Further, these non-GAAP results are among the primary indicators that management uses as a basis for planning and forecasting in future periods. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of specific adjustments to GAAP results is provided in the "Reconciliation Between Net Income Attributable to ViaSat Inc. on a GAAP Basis and Non-GAAP Basis" table contained in this release.
Adjusted EBITDA represents net income (loss) attributable to ViaSat Inc. before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted to exclude the effects of non-cash stock-based compensation expense and acquisition-related expenses. We believe Adjusted EBITDA facilitates company-to-company operating performance comparisons by backing out potential differences caused by variations in capital structures (affecting net interest expense), taxation and the age and book depreciation of property, plant and equipment (affecting relative depreciation expense), which may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to operating performance. In addition, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in their evaluation of companies, many of which present an Adjusted EBITDA measure when reporting their results. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income as a measure of performance or to net cash flows provided by (used in) operations as a measure of liquidity. In addition, other companies may define Adjusted EBITDA differently and, as a result, our measure of Adjusted EBITDA may not be directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA of other companies. Furthermore, Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are:
- Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements, for capital expenditures or contractual commitments,
- Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs,
- Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our debt,
- Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the EBITDA calculation used for our senior notes and revolving line of credit debt covenant requirements, and
- Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our provision for income taxes, which may vary significantly from period to period.
