ViaSat Announces First Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 Results

Record Quarterly New Contract Awards and Revenues

CARLSBAD, Calif., Aug. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ViaSat Inc. (NASDAQ: VSAT), an innovator in satellite and other wireless networking systems and services, announced financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013. The fiscal first quarter results include record new contract awards and revenues of $332.6 million and $241.8 million, respectively, Adjusted EBITDA of $29.6 million and a net loss attributable to ViaSat common stockholders of $0.18 per share on a non-GAAP diluted basis or $0.33 per share on a diluted GAAP basis.

"Our products and service segments each performed very well this quarter in the context of their objectives," said Mark Dankberg, chairman and CEO of ViaSat. "The government systems segment grew revenue by over 20%, Adjusted EBITDA by over 50% and set records for new orders and backlog. The commercial networks segment grew revenue by over 40%, also increased Adjusted EBITDA, and the $240 million order for the Australian NBN satellite ground system received just after quarter end, drives record backlog there, too.  In our satellite services segment, we are focused on the primary mission of adding subscribers, assessing the addressable market, and confirming the unit economics that will transition us to profitable growth in subsequent periods. We achieved about a 40% sequential increase in new terminal installations compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012 and grew average revenue per user (ARPU) by 3.5%. About 40% of new subscribers switched to the ExedeSM service from other terrestrial broadband connections. While total subscriber acquisition costs are the primary driver of our higher operating loss for the quarter, our unit economics for acquiring new subscribers and servicing existing ones are consistent with our models — positioning us for steady sequential growth in Adjusted EBITDA and earnings beginning in our fiscal second quarter."

1 ViaSat uses a 52 or 53 week fiscal year which ends on the Friday closest to March 31. ViaSat quarters for fiscal year 2013 end on June 29, 2012, September 28, 2012, December 28, 2012, and March 29, 2013.

2 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. A reconciliation of specific adjustments to GAAP results for these periods is included in the table titled "An Itemized Reconciliation Between Net Income (Loss) Attributable to ViaSat Inc. and Adjusted EBITDA" contained in this release. A description of our use of non-GAAP information is provided below under "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information."

3 Attributable to ViaSat Inc. common stockholders.

4 All non-GAAP net income (loss) numbers have been adjusted to exclude the effects of amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition related expenses, and non-cash stock-based compensation expenses, net of tax. A reconciliation of specific adjustments to GAAP results for these periods is included in the table titled "An Itemized Reconciliation Between Net Income (Loss) Attributable to ViaSat Inc. on a GAAP Basis and Non-GAAP Basis" contained in this release. A description of our use of non-GAAP information is provided below under "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information."

5 As the first quarter fiscal year 2013 financial information results in a net loss, the weighted average number of shares used to calculate basic and diluted net loss per share is the same, as diluted shares would be anti-dilutive.

6 Amounts include certain backlog adjustments due to contract changes and amendments.

Satellite Services revenues increased mainly from a higher mix of retail subscribers and the related ARPU. Adjusted EBITDA declined significantly for the quarter from the start-up of our Exede satellite Internet service, as fixed operating costs, and commissions and advertising expenses associated with subscriber growth increased more than incremental revenue for this quarter. Commercial Networks revenues and Adjusted EBITDA increased for the quarter on increased satellite terminal sales in Europe and North America supporting new Ka-band satellite services launched during fiscal year 2012. Government Systems operating results improved for the quarter as government mobile broadband products and services, command and control and tactical satellite networks revenues and associated earnings overcame reductions in information assurance product sales.

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 (loss) 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 (loss) 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. 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 expenses and acquisition related expenses. We also use Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate operating performance of our segments, to allocate resources and capital to such segments, to measure performance for incentive compensation programs and to evaluate future growth opportunities. 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 tables titled "An Itemized Reconciliation Between Net Income (Loss) Attributable to ViaSat Inc. on a GAAP Basis and Non-GAAP Basis," "An Itemized Reconciliation Between Net Income (Loss) Attributable to ViaSat Inc. and Adjusted EBITDA" and "An Itemized Reconciliation Between Segment Operating Profit (Loss) Before Corporate and Amortization of Acquired Intangible Assets and Adjusted EBITDA" contained in this release.
