KVH Industries Reports Third Quarter 2020 Results

MIDDLETOWN, R.I., Oct. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq: KVHI), reported financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 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.

Third Quarter 2020 Highlights

  • Total revenues from continuing operations increased by 5% in the third quarter of 2020 to $41.1 million from $39.3 million in the third quarter of 2019.
     
  • Revenues for AgilePlans, our Connectivity as a Service program for the commercial maritime sector, were up more than 55% compared to the third quarter of 2019.
     
  • AgilePlans amounted to 78% of total commercial maritime mini-VSAT Broadband shipments, and 64% of the total mini-VSAT Broadband shipments for the quarter. AgilePlans now represent 35% of our mini-VSAT Broadband subscriber base.
     
  • Our mini-VSAT Broadband airtime revenue increased $1.8 million, to $21.7 million, or 9%, in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the third quarter of 2019, driven primarily by a 4% increase in subscribers as well as by a $0.9 million one-time amount relating to a favorable resolution of a contractual matter with a particular customer.
     
  • Fiber optic gyro (FOG) product and OEM product sales increased $1.5 million, or 24%, in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the third quarter of 2019, and TACNAV product sales increased $1.2 million in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the third quarter of 2019.
     
  • Net loss from continuing operations in the third quarter of 2020 was $0.5 million, or $0.03 per share, compared to a net loss of $3.3 million, or $0.19 per share, in the third quarter of 2019.
     
  • Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations in the third quarter of 2020 was $1.1 million, or $0.06 per share, compared to a net loss of $2.2 million, or $0.12 per share, in the third quarter of 2019.
     
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations in the third quarter of 2020 was $3.4 million, compared to a loss of $1.2 million in the third quarter of 2019.

Commenting on the quarter, Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH’s chief executive officer, said “We are very pleased with the progress we made this quarter on all fronts. Notwithstanding the on-going impact of COVID-19, our financial results reflect one of the strongest third quarter reporting periods we have seen in several years. Sales grew by 5%, as did our VSAT shipments, our gross margins expanded significantly, our operating expenses continue to be in check, and our EBITDA increased by $4.6 million. I feel confident in saying that the decisive actions we took at the beginning of the pandemic have helped us to withstand, so far, the uncertainty posed by this global economic situation. Of course, the pandemic is far from over and we continue to remain vigilant and prepared for a range of macroeconomic scenarios.

“In addition to our robust financial results, we also made solid progress in advancing our strategic initiatives. We are in the process of rolling the PIC technology across our entire line of FOG products. Our creative promotional activities for AgilePlans are driving higher year over year VSAT shipments. And, we continue to invest in and develop our KVH Watch product suite in response to the increasing demand for IoT solutions.” 

The company has classified the results of the Videotel business sold in 2019 as a discontinued operation and therefore Videotel is excluded from the segment information below.

The company operates in two segments, mobile connectivity and inertial navigation. In the third quarter of 2020, net sales for the mobile connectivity segment decreased by $0.3 million compared to the third quarter of 2019. mini-VSAT Broadband airtime revenue increased by $1.8 million. The increase was offset primarily due to a $0.9 million decrease in our content service sales, a $0.5 million decrease in TracVision product sales and a $0.2 million decrease in land mobile product sales. In the third quarter of 2020, net sales for our inertial navigation segment increased by $2.1 million, or 27%, compared to the third quarter of 2019. Inertial navigation sales increased primarily due to a $1.5 million increase in FOG and OEM product sales and a $1.2 million increase in TACNAV product sales. These increases were offset in part by a $0.6 million decrease in contracted engineering revenue.

Third Quarter Financial Summary

Revenue was $41.1 million for the third quarter of 2020, an increase of 5% compared to $39.3 million in the third quarter of 2019.

Product revenues for the third quarter of 2020 were $16.7 million, an increase of 12% compared to the prior year quarter due to a $2.7 million increase in inertial navigation product sales, partially offset by a $0.9 million decrease in mobile connectivity product sales. Inertial navigation product sales increased primarily as a result of a $1.5 million increase in FOG and OEM product sales and a $1.2 million increase in TACNAV product sales. The decrease in mobile connectivity product sales was primarily due to a $0.5 million decrease in TracVision product sales and a $0.2 million decrease in land mobile product sales. The decrease in TracVision and land mobile product sales was primarily due to a decline in leisure sales.

Service revenues were $24.5 million for both the third quarter of 2020 and the third quarter of 2019, primarily due to a $0.6 million increase in mobile connectivity service sales, offset by a $0.6 million decrease in inertial navigation service sales. Mobile connectivity service sales increased primarily due to a $1.8 million increase in our mini-VSAT Broadband service sales, which resulted in part from a 4% increase in subscribers, primarily as a result of AgilePlans, and a $0.9 million one-time amount relating to a favorable resolution of a contractual matter with a particular customer. Partially offsetting this increase was a $0.9 million decrease in our content service sales. Inertial navigation service sales decreased primarily due to lower contract engineering service revenue.

Our operating expenses decreased $2.0 million to $16.3 million for the third quarter of 2020 compared to $18.3 million for the third quarter of 2019. This decrease resulted primarily from a decrease in salaries and employee benefits, as well as lower travel and entertainment expenses.

Nine Months Ended September 30 Financial Summary

Revenue was $114.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, a decrease of 1% compared to $115.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

Product revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 were $43.7 million, an increase of 1% compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019 primarily due to an increase of $4.0 million in inertial navigation product sales, partially offset by a decrease in mobile connectivity product sales of $3.5 million. The increase in inertial navigation product sales was due to a $2.4 million increase in TACNAV product sales and a $1.6 million increase in FOG and OEM product sales. The decrease in mobile connectivity product sales was due to a $2.9 million decrease in marine mobile connectivity product sales, which was primarily driven by a decrease in TracVision product sales. In addition, there was a $0.6 million decrease in land mobile product sales. The decrease in TracVision and land mobile product sales was primarily due to a decline in leisure sales.

Service revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 were $70.9 million, a decrease of 2% compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019 primarily due to a decrease of $2.3 million in inertial navigation service sales, partially offset by an increase in mobile connectivity service sales of $1.0 million. The decrease in inertial navigation service sales was due to a decrease in our contract engineering service revenue. The increase in mobile connectivity service sales was primarily due to a $3.8 million increase in our mini-VSAT Broadband service sales, which resulted in part from a 4% increase in subscribers, primarily as a result of AgilePlans, and a $0.9 million one-time amount relating to a favorable resolution of a contractual matter with a particular customer. Partially offsetting this increase was a $1.9 million decrease in content service sales and a $0.6 million decrease in our contract engineering service revenue.

Our operating expenses decreased $3.5 million to $52.1 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $55.7 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2019. This decrease resulted primarily from a decrease in salaries and employee benefits, lower travel expenses and lower warranty expense, partially offset by an increase in bad debt expense.

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 amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense, transaction-related and other non-recurring legal fees, non-recurring inventory reserve, other non-recurring costs, 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 interest income, net, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, transaction-related and other non-recurring legal fees, non-recurring inventory reserves, other non-recurring costs 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.

For example, forward-looking statements include statements regarding our financial goals for future periods, the success of our new initiatives, our investment plans, our development goals, our anticipated revenue and earnings, and the impact of our future initiatives on revenue, competitive positioning, profitability, and product orders. Actual results could differ materially from the results projected in or implied by the forward-looking statements made in this press release. Factors that might cause these differences include, but are not limited to: the adverse impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as governmental, business and other responses thereto and the resulting economic slowdown on our revenues, results of operations and financial condition, which could be material (particularly for our media and other travel-related businesses); decreased profitability and cash flow resulting from the sale of our Videotel business; a history and expectation of continuing losses as we increase investments in various initiatives, including the photonic chip and KVH Watch technology; increased costs arising from our new AgilePlans dealer incentive program; increased advisory and other costs arising in connection with potential shareholder activism; potential liabilities arising from our sale of Videotel; the uncertain duration of the initial adverse impact on our overall revenues of our new AgilePlans and KVH Watch, under which we recognize no revenue for product sales, either at the time of shipment or over the contract term; increased costs arising from the HTS network; potential challenges or delays in the transition of customers from our legacy network to our HTS network; the impact of recent changes in revenue recognition and lease accounting standards, including potential changes in the interpretation of those standards; potential adverse events arising out of accounting errors and the correction thereof, including adverse reactions from investors, research analysts, regulators and others, including adverse changes in our projected financial performance; the uncertain impact of tax reform, and federal budget deficits, government shutdowns and Congressional deadlock; the uncertain impact of changes in trade policy, including actual and potential new or higher tariffs, and trade barriers and sanctions, as well as trade wars with other countries; unanticipated obstacles in our photonic chip and other product and service development efforts; 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 UK and Europe and on the overall global economy; our ability to successfully commercialize our new initiatives without unanticipated additional expenses or delays; 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-HTS 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, weather-related, seasonal, and other factors, particularly with respect to the TracPhone V-HTS series, including with respect to new pricing models; increased price and service competition in the mobile connectivity market; increased competition for content services; ongoing fluctuations in engineering service revenues, which can vary significantly from period to period; exposure for potential intellectual property infringement; potential additional litigation expenses; 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. These and other factors are discussed in more detail in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 31, 2020.
