KVH Industries Reports First Quarter 2022 Results

MIDDLETOWN, R.I., May 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq: KVHI), reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 today. The company will hold a conference call to discuss these results at 9:00 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.

First Quarter 2022 Highlights

  • Total revenues in the first quarter of 2022 were $41.1 million, down 3% from $42.3 million in the first quarter of 2021; excluding highly variable TACNAV revenue, total revenues were up measurably.
  • TACNAV product sales decreased $4.5 million to $0.7 million in the first quarter of 2022 compared to the first quarter of 2021. Fiber optic gyro (FOG) product and OEM product sales increased $0.8 million, or 13%, in the first quarter of 2022 compared to the first quarter of 2021.
  • Our mini-VSAT Broadband airtime revenue increased $2.7 million, to $24.0 million, or 12%, in the first quarter of 2022 compared to the first quarter of 2021 despite a 1% decrease in subscribers as a result of the shutdown of our legacy network on December 31, 2021.
  • Net loss in the first quarter of 2022 was $4.7 million, or $0.25 per share, compared to a net loss of $4.0 million, or $0.22 per share, in the first quarter of 2021.
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP EPS were $1.9 million and a loss of $0.05 per share in the first quarter of 2022, compared to $1.1 million and a loss of $0.05 per share in the first quarter of 2021.

Commenting on the first quarter results, Brent Bruun, KVH’s Interim Chief Executive Officer said, “Total revenue met our expectations, with strong growth in both mobile connectivity services and inertial navigation FOG and OEM products. As expected, TACNAV sales were down compared to the very strong first quarter of 2021, resulting in the modest decline in total revenue. We successfully carried out a significant restructuring in the first quarter, including a readjustment of our operating expenses and a corresponding headcount reduction to more appropriately align our expense base with our expected revenue. While difficult, these changes are now substantially complete, and we expect to begin to see the benefits in the second quarter.

We believe that thanks to the decisive steps we have taken as part of the restructuring, together with our strong fundamentals with industry-leading products, innovative employees, and strong demand in our core strategic businesses, we have a solid foundation for sustained, profitable growth and long-term shareholder value. For 2022, assuming supply chain issues do not worsen, we continue to expect revenue growth between 2% and 5%, and adjusted EBITDA between $11.0 million and $15.0 million.”

The company operates in two segments, mobile connectivity and inertial navigation. In the first quarter of 2022, net sales for the mobile connectivity segment increased by $2.6 million compared to the first quarter of 2021. Mobile connectivity sales increased due to a $2.7 million increase in mini-VSAT Broadband airtime revenue and a $0.2 million increase in our content service sales, partially offset by a $0.3 million decrease in mobile connectivity product sales. In the first quarter of 2022, net sales for our inertial navigation segment decreased by $3.8 million, or 33%, compared to the first quarter of 2021. The decrease was driven by lower TACNAV orders.

First Quarter Financial Summary

Revenue was $41.1 million for the first quarter of 2022, a decrease of 3% compared to $42.3 million in the first quarter of 2021. Product revenues for the first quarter of 2022 were $14.4 million, a decrease of 22% compared to the prior year quarter due to a $3.7 million decrease in inertial navigation product sales and a $0.3 million decrease in mobile connectivity product sales. Inertial navigation product sales decreased primarily as a result of a $4.5 million decrease in TACNAV product sales, partially offset by a $0.8 million increase in FOG and OEM product sales. The decrease in mobile connectivity product sales was primarily due to a $0.7 million decrease in TracVision and land mobile product sales, partially offset by a $0.3 million increase in mini-VSAT Broadband products and accessories sales.

Service revenues for the first quarter of 2022 were $26.7 million, an increase of $2.9 million compared to the prior year quarter due to a $3.0 million increase in mobile connectivity service sales, partially offset by a $0.1 million decrease in inertial navigation service sales. The increase in mobile connectivity service sales was primarily due to a $2.7 million increase in our mini-VSAT Broadband service sales and a $0.2 million increase in our content service sales. Inertial navigation service sales decreased primarily due to lower contract engineering service revenue.

Our operating expenses increased $0.8 million to $20.1 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $19.3 million for the first quarter of 2021. This increase resulted primarily from a $1.2 million increase in salaries, benefits and taxes, which was driven by a one-time cost of $1.3 million related to the reduction in our workforce in March 2022 and $0.5 million of expenses related to the separation and retirement of our CEO in March 2022. Partially offsetting this increase was a $0.5 million decrease in non-recurring legal and advisory fees.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release provides non-GAAP financial information, which may include constant-currency revenue, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP diluted EPS, and non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, as a supplement to our condensed consolidated 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. Constant-currency revenue is calculated on the basis of local currency results, using foreign currency exchange rates applicable to the earlier comparative period, and management believes that presenting information on a constant-currency basis helps management and investors to isolate the impact of changes in those rates from other factors. 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. The non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release adjust for specified items that can be highly variable or difficult to predict. Management generally uses these non-GAAP financial measures to facilitate financial and operational decision-making, including evaluation of our historical operating results, comparison to competitors’ operating results, and determination of management incentive compensation. These non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of our operations that, when viewed with GAAP results and the reconciliations to corresponding GAAP financial measures, may provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business.

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

  • Non-GAAP net income (loss) and diluted EPS exclude, as applicable, amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense, employee termination and other non-recurring costs, CEO separation costs, transaction-related and other variable legal and advisory fees, foreign exchange transaction gains and losses, the tax effect of the foregoing and certain discrete tax charges, including changes in our valuation allowance and other tax adjustments.
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA represents net income (loss) before, as applicable, income taxes, interest income, net, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation expense, employee termination and other non-recurring costs, CEO separation costs, transaction-related and other variable legal and advisory fees, and foreign exchange transaction gains and losses.

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 non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effect of items that increase or decrease our reported results of operations, management strongly encourages investors to review our consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety. Reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the tables accompanying this release.
