KVH Industries Reports Third Quarter 2016 Results

KVH Industries, Inc., (KVHI) reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016 today. The company will hold a conference call to discuss these results at 10:30 a.m. ET today, which can be accessed at investors.kvh.com. Following the call, a replay of the webcast will be available through the company’s website.

Recent KVH Highlights

Recently released market data estimates KVH’s share of Ku-band maritime VSAT at 29% of active users, more than double that of our closest competitor.

Ramping sales and design wins from customers in the self-driving vehicle market and other autonomous platforms, including drones.

Major global maritime fleets choosing our new usage-based airtime plans to take advantage of the fastest speeds on our mini-VSAT Broadband network.

Generated cash from operations of $10 million during the third quarter and $19 million for the nine-month period.

-- Content and training showing steady growth on a constant currency basis.

For the third quarter of 2016, our revenues were $45.8 million up 3% from a year ago; our net income was $2.9 million, or $0.18 per share, while non-GAAP net income was $4.3 million, or $0.27 per share. During the same period last year, we reported revenues of $44.5 million and a net loss of $0.5 million, or $0.03 per share, and a non-GAAP net income of $1.8 million, or $0.12 per share.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was $6.7 million for the third quarter of 2016 compared to $4.2 million in the prior year quarter.

"Overall we are pleased with our results for the third quarter, with revenue coming in at the high end of our guidance range, and net income and EPS exceeding our guidance. Our TACNAV products provided KVH with a strong revenue stream during the quarter and helped to offset the negative impact on revenues of our UK operations, which were adversely affected by the weakness of the British Pound," said Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH’s Chief Executive Officer. "Given that we don’t have the anticipated TACNAV orders for Q4 in backlog yet, we are removing them from our Q4 guidance. We still expect these to be awarded and we continue to do work so that we can deliver promptly when we receive the orders."

Third Quarter Financial Summary

Revenue was $45.8 million for the third quarter of 2016, an increase of 3% compared to $44.5 million in the third quarter of 2015, notwithstanding weakness in the British Pound that negatively impacted revenue in 2016 by $1.2 million, or 3%. Third quarter product revenues of $19.0 million were 22% higher than the prior year quarter, primarily due to a 66% year-over-year increase in guidance & stabilization product revenues, partially offset by a decrease in sales of our mobile communication products of 2%. Service revenues for the third quarter of 2016 were $26.8 million, a decrease of 7% compared to the third quarter of 2015. Airtime service revenues, which include mini-VSAT Broadband airtime revenues, were up slightly year-over-year. Our mini-VSAT airtime increased slightly and Inmarsat airtime decreased 17%. Our engineering service revenues declined 75% as a result of the completion of a substantial contract in the first quarter of 2016. In the third quarter of 2015, we provided a significant level of engineering services that pertained to nonstandard products, which were subsequently delivered in the fourth quarter of 2015 and throughout 2016. Content and training revenues, which include our entertainment, e-Learning, and safety content, decreased by 11% in the third quarter of 2016 compared to the third quarter of 2015, however on a constant currency basis, the revenues increased by 3%. British Pound weakness negatively impacted content and training revenues by $1.2 million, or 14%. Our operating expenses decreased $1.3 million year over year to $18.2 million. The key driver was the reduction of incentive compensation, resulting from the lowering of our financial outlook for the remainder of the year.

Nine Months Ended September 30 Financial Summary

For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, revenue was $132.2 million, an increase of 1%, compared to $130.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. Weakness in the British Pound negatively impacted revenue in 2016 by $2.1 million, or 2%. Product revenues for the 2016 nine-month period of $54.5 million were 11% higher than the comparable period last year, which was driven primarily by a 38% increase in guidance & stabilization product revenues year-over-year, most notably TACNAV product revenues. Service revenues for the 2016 nine-month period of $77.7 million decreased 5% compared to the nine-month period last year. Airtime service revenues in the 2016 nine-month period decreased 1% year-over-year. Our mini-VSAT Broadband airtime revenue increased slightly but was offset by a decrease in Inmarsat airtime revenue of 28%. Engineering service revenue decreased 54% principally due to the previously described third quarter decrease. Content and training revenues decreased by 8%, however on a constant currency basis, the revenue increased by 2%. British Pound weakness negatively impacted content and training revenues by $2.1 million, or 9%.

The company reported a GAAP net loss of $0.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, or $0.05 per share. During the same period last year, the company recorded a GAAP net loss of $1.8 million, or $0.12 per share. The company recorded non-GAAP net income of $4.9 million, or $0.31 per share, for both the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and the nine months ended September 30, 2015. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was $11.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 compared to $11.5 million in the same period last year.

Fourth Quarter 2016 Outlook

We are revising our guidance down for 2016 to $174 million to $176 million. Previously the revenue range we predicted for the full year was $190 million to $210 million. We are estimating fourth quarter revenues to be in the range of $42 million to $44 million. Given that we do not have the anticipated TACNAV orders in backlog yet, we are removing them from our fourth quarter guidance. If these orders were to be received and shipped in the fourth quarter, they would add at least $15 million in revenue. Also, a portion of our revenues and costs are denominated in British Pound, and there have recently been significant fluctuations in currency movements relative to the U.S. dollar. Significant changes to currency exchange rates, particularly between the U.S. dollar and British Pound, may have a material impact on our earnings.

For the fourth quarter of 2016, GAAP net loss per diluted share is expected to be in the range of $(0.06) to $(0.01) and non-GAAP net income per diluted share is expected to be in the range of $0.05 to $0.10. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter is projected to be in the range of $2.4 million to $3.5 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Provided in this release is non-GAAP financial information, including non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted EPS, and non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, as a supplement to the condensed financial statements, which are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing financial results to assess operational performance and (only in the case of non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA) liquidity. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. KVH believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing performance and when planning, forecasting, and analyzing future periods. KVH believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics used in making operating decisions and because its investors and analysts use them to help assess the health of its business.

Some limitations of non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income (loss), and non-GAAP diluted EPS, include the following:

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA represents net income (loss) before interest income, interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, and acquisition-related compensation. In the periods presented, there were no charges for acquisition-related expenses (other than acquisition-related compensation) or adjustments resulting from the application of purchase accounting in connection with acquisitions and, accordingly, we have removed these adjustments from the non-GAAP calculation.

Non-GAAP net income (loss) and basic and diluted EPS exclude amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation, certain discrete tax items, and acquisition-related compensation. In the periods presented, there were no charges for acquisition-related expenses (other than acquisition-related compensation) or adjustments resulting from the application of purchase accounting in connection with acquisitions and, accordingly, we have removed these adjustments from the non-GAAP calculation.

Other companies, including companies in KVH’s industry, may calculate these non-GAAP financial measures differently or not at all, which will reduce their usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, investors should consider these non-GAAP financial measures together with other financial performance measures, including net income (loss), diluted net income (loss) per share, and KVH’s other financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. See the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliations below for further details.

For example, forward-looking statements include statements regarding our financial goals for future periods, our anticipated revenue, competitive positioning, profitability, and product orders. Actual results could differ materially from the forward-looking statements made in this press release. Factors that might cause these differences include, but are not limited to: delays in the receipt of anticipated orders for our products and services, including significant orders for TACNAV products, or the potential failure of such orders to occur at all; continued adverse impacts of currency fluctuations, particularly the British Pound; risks associated with the impact of Brexit on sales and operations in the U.K. and Europe and on the overall global economy; potential reduced sales to companies in or dependent upon the turbulent oil and gas industry; continued substantial fluctuations in military sales, including to foreign customers; the unpredictability of defense budget priorities as well as the order timing, purchasing schedules, and priorities for defense products, including possible order cancellations; the uncertain impact of potential budget cuts by government customers; the impact of extended economic weakness on the sale and use of marine vessels and recreational vehicles; the potential inability to increase or maintain our market share in the market for airtime services; the need to increase sales of the TracPhone V-IP series products and related services to maintain and improve airtime gross margins; the need for, or delays in, qualification of products to customer or regulatory standards; potential declines or changes in customer demand, due to economic, seasonal, and other factors, particularly with respect to the TracPhone V-IP series, including with respect to new pricing models; recent increases in airtime termination rates and lower unit sales in our mobile business; increased price and service competition in the mobile communications market; potential increased expenses associated with investments in new technology; exposure for potential intellectual property infringement; potential additional litigation expenses; fluctuations in interest rates; potential changes in tax and accounting requirements or assessments, including management’s assessment of the probability and effect of future events; stock price volatility; and export restrictions, delays in procuring export licenses, and other international risks.
