“We’re pleased with our second quarter results as revenues came in as anticipated, while Adjusted EBITDA margin exceeded expectations in a challenging macro environment,” said Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our integration plan and disciplined focus on cash management led to an improved Adjusted EBITDA margin of 21% and an $11 million increase in cash flow from operations over the prior year. We’ve added several new customers and expanded long-standing relationships, while building a pipeline of opportunities. Our integration plan is nearing completion, and we’re pivoting our innovation to focus on long-term growth. With stable recurring service revenues, a solid liquidity position and a diverse base of customers, we’re confident we will come out stronger as markets begin to stabilize and momentum grows in the back half of the year.”  

Financial Results

Revenues

Total Revenues for the second quarter of 2020 were $56.7 million compared to $67.1 million in the prior year period. 

Service Revenues were $38.4 million in the second quarter of 2020 compared to $39.7 million in the same period last year. Recurring Service Revenues decreased $1.5 million to $37 million in the second quarter compared to $38.5 million in the prior year quarter primarily due to the AT&T/Maersk revenues from 2019 that did not recur this year. Excluding revenues from AT&T/Maersk, Recurring Service Revenues were 99% of prior year despite headwinds from foreign exchange, dormant assets and a weak oil and gas environment. The Company added nearly 18,000 net subscriber additions in the second quarter bringing the total billable subscriber communicators to approximately 2.22 million as of June 30, 2020.

Product Sales were $18.3 million in the second quarter of 2020 compared to $27.4 million in the prior year, as impacts from COVID-19 affected customer deployment schedules and resulted in many temporary customer facility closures.

Gross Margin (1)

GAAP Service Gross Margin, inclusive of depreciation and amortization expense, was 56.4% in the second quarter of 2020 compared to 55.3% in the prior year period. Non-GAAP Service Gross Margin, excluding depreciation and amortization expense, was 67.3% in the second quarter of 2020 compared to 66% in the prior year period. The year-over-year improvement was primarily driven by lower direct service costs achieved through the Company’s cost reduction plan.

GAAP Product Gross Margin, inclusive of depreciation and amortization expense, was 25% in the second quarter of 2020 compared to 25.8% in the prior year period. Non-GAAP Product Gross Margin, excluding depreciation and amortization expense, was 27.8% in the second quarter of 2020 compared to 28.4% in the same period last year. The year-over-year decline was primarily due to lower product revenue on approximately $2 million of fixed costs.

Operating Expenses

Operating Expenses for the second quarter of 2020 were $32.8 million compared to $34.2 million for the same period in 2019. The $1.4 million decrease was primarily driven by reductions in professional services, labor, travel and entertainment expenses, as well as lower product development costs.

Net Income (Loss) and Earnings Per Share

Net Loss Attributable to ORBCOMM Inc. Common Stockholders for the second quarter of 2020 was $6.7 million, or $0.09 per share, compared to a Net Loss of $6.4 million, or $0.08 per share in the second quarter of 2019.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA (1)

EBITDA for the second quarter of 2020 was $10.3 million compared to $12.0 million in the prior year period.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2020 was $11.9 million compared to $14.2 million in the prior year period. The year-over-year decline was primarily due to the flow-through impact from lower revenue, mainly product sales, partially offset by a greater mix of high-margin service revenues and reduced operating expenses. The Company’s Adjusted EBITDA Margin in the second quarter of 2020 was 21%, relatively flat to the prior year period.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of June 30, 2020, Cash and Cash Equivalents totaled $62.4 million, a decrease of $7.8 million in the quarter, which included a repayment of $15 million on the Company’s revolving credit facility, and a $10 million-dollar interest payment on the Company’s debt. Cash Flow from Operations totaled $12.6 million for the second quarter of 2020, an increase of $10.7 million over the prior year period primarily driven by improvements in working capital and margins. Capital Expenditures were $5.7 million in the second quarter of 2020.

Outlook (2)

As the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to be unpredictable, a high degree of uncertainty remains as to the level of business disruption across the multiple markets ORBCOMM serves. That being said, ORBCOMM believes the largest impact of the pandemic to financial results will most likely have occurred in the second quarter of 2020, and anticipates improvement in the third quarter. The Company expects Total Revenues in the third quarter will be between $59 million and $62 million and anticipates Adjusted EBITDA margin in the third quarter to be approximately 21.5%. The Company intends to provide fourth quarter guidance during the earnings conference call in late October.

(2) The Company’s outlook includes non-GAAP measures, such as Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin, which exclude charges or credits not indicative of core operations, which may include but not be limited to stock-based compensation expense, acquisition-related and integration costs, impairment loss, and other significant items that currently cannot be predicted. The exact amount of these charges or credits are not currently determinable, but may be significant. Accordingly, the Company is unable to provide equivalent reconciliations from GAAP to non-GAAP for these financial measures.

ORBCOMM publicly reports its financial information in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”). To facilitate external analysis of the Company’s operating performance, ORBCOMM also presents financial information that are considered “non-GAAP financial measures” under Regulation G and related reporting requirements promulgated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, Net Income or other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different than those presented by other companies. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Non-GAAP Service Gross Margin and Non-GAAP Product Gross Margin are not performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP and are therefore considered non-GAAP measures. Reconciliation tables are presented above.

The Company’s outlook includes non-GAAP measures, such as Adjusted EBITDA Margin, which exclude charges or credits not indicative of core operations, which may include but not be limited to stock-based compensation expense, acquisition-related and integration costs, impairment loss, and other significant items that currently cannot be predicted. The exact amount of these charges or credits are not currently determinable, but may be significant. Accordingly, the Company is unable to provide equivalent reconciliations from GAAP to non-GAAP for these financial measures.

EBITDA is defined as earnings attributable to ORBCOMM Inc. before interest income (expense), provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and loss on debt extinguishment. ORBCOMM believes EBITDA is useful to its management and investors in evaluating operating performance because it is one of the primary measures used to evaluate the economic productivity of the Company’s operations, including its ability to obtain and maintain its customers, its ability to operate its business effectively, the efficiency of its employees and the profitability associated with their performance. It also helps ORBCOMM’s management and investors to meaningfully evaluate and compare the results of the Company’s operations from period to period on a consistent basis by removing the impact of its financing transactions and the depreciation and amortization impact of capital investments from its operating results. In addition, ORBCOMM management uses EBITDA in presentations to its board of directors to enable it to have the same measurement of operating performance used by management and for planning purposes, including the preparation of the annual operating budget.

The Company also believes that Adjusted EBITDA, defined as EBITDA adjusted for stock-based compensation expense, noncontrolling interests, impairment loss, and acquisition-related and integration costs, is useful to investors to evaluate the Company’s core operating results and financial performance because it excludes items that are significant non-cash or non-recurring expenses reflected in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by Total Revenues.

Non-GAAP Service Gross Margin is defined as Non-GAAP Service gross profit divided by Service Revenue. Non-GAAP Service gross profit is defined as Service Revenue, minus costs of services (including depreciation and amortization expense) plus depreciation and amortization expense. Non-GAAP Product Gross Margin is defined as Non-GAAP Product gross profit divided by Product Sales. Non-GAAP Product gross profit is defined as Product Sales, minus cost of product (including depreciation and amortization expense) plus depreciation and amortization expense. The Company believes that Non-GAAP Service Gross Margin and Non-GAAP Product Gross Margin are useful to evaluate and compare the results of the Company’s operations from period to period on a consistent basis by removing the depreciation and amortization impact of capital investments from its operating results.
