"Second quarter revenue and operating results were in line with our expectations," said Matt O'Connell, GeoEye's chief executive officer and president. "Revenues in our international business grew 8.9% as compared to the same quarter last year, while our domestic business was down slightly. Growth in our Production and other services business unit was another highlight in the quarter. And on July 23, we were pleased to announce our agreement to combine with DigitalGlobe. The combination of the two companies will create a global leader in earth imagery and geospatial analysis."

SECOND QUARTER RESULTS

Total revenues were $88.4 million for the second quarter of 2012, a $1.2 million increase from the second quarter of 2011.

When adjusted for $2.4 million of transaction and other costs associated with the process of combining with DigitalGlobe and the divestiture of MJ Harden, net income available to common stockholders for the second quarter of 2012 was $13.0 million, or $0.57 per fully diluted share.

Operating profit was $22.1 million for the second quarter of 2012, which included $2.4 million of transaction and other costs. Operating margin was 25.0 percent for the second quarter of 2012, compared to 27.1 percent in the second quarter of 2011.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents net income before depreciation and amortization expenses, net interest income or expense, provision for income taxes, non-cash stock-based compensation expense and other items including transaction related costs.  We believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors because it is an indicator of the strength and performance of our ongoing operations.  However, Adjusted EBITDA is not a recognized term under financial performance under GAAP, and our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to the calculation of similarly titled measures of other companies.
