"We had a great third quarter, evidenced by strong financial results and new technology and product announcements. This, combined with our recently announced partnership with Japan Airlines, further solidifies our leadership position in the global in-flight connectivity industry," said Gogo's President and CEO, Michael Small. "We believe that the unique combination of our industry leading scale, technological prowess, and track record of execution ideally positions Gogo for long-term growth in North America and internationally," added Small.

Third Quarter Operating Results

Total revenue increased to $85.4 million, up 48% for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, compared with $57.8 million for the comparable prior year period. The growth in revenue was driven by a 52% increase in service revenue, primarily as a result of a 24% increase in aircraft online and a 21% increase in ARPA in CA-NA and a 41% increase in ATG broadband aircraft online and price increases in BA.

Operating expenses increased to $96.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared with $66.5 million for the comparable prior year period. We incurred higher cost of service expenses at CA-NA and BA as our third quarter service revenue increased 52% from the comparable prior year period, as well as higher general and administrative expenses, engineering, design and development expenses, and depreciation and amortization expenses needed to support our growing business. In addition, we incurred higher expenses at CA-ROW for the quarter ending September 30, 2013, primarily due to satellite transponder and teleport fees, expenses related to development and certification of our satellite connectivity systems, and higher regulatory expenses as we continued to expand internationally.

Adjusted EBITDA increased to $2.0 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared with $0.6 million for the comparable prior year period. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was driven by a $6.0 million increase in BA segment profit and a $2.6 million decrease in CA-NA segment loss, partially offset by a $7.2 million increase in CA-ROW segment loss.

Net loss attributable to common stock decreased to $18.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared with a net loss attributable to common stock of $29.0 million for the comparable prior year period. The decrease in net loss attributable to common stock was due to a $16.0 million decrease in the preferred stock return and accretion expenses related to our convertible preferred stock and a $1.4 million increase in Adjusted EBITDA, partially offset by higher depreciation and amortization and interest expenses. Adjusted Net Loss increased to $18.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared with an Adjusted Net Loss of $13.0 million for the comparable prior year period.

Net loss attributable to common stock per share was $0.22 for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared with $4.27 for the comparable prior year period. If the number of shares outstanding after the IPO was used instead of the respective weighted averages, the Adjusted Net Loss Per Share would have been $0.22 for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared with $0.16 for the comparable prior year period.

Capital expenditures increased to $27.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared with $23.2 million for the comparable prior year period.  The increase in capital expenditures was due to increased investments in our ATG network and capitalized software and, to a lesser extent, airborne equipment for CA-ROW. Cash capital expenditures, defined as capital expenditures net of airborne equipment proceeds received from the airlines, increased to $24.5 million for the third quarter compared with $20.7 million for the comparable prior year period.

Segment Information

CA-NA revenue increased to $50.6 million, up 53% for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared with $33.1 million for the comparable prior year period. The increase was primarily due to a 52% increase in CA-NA service revenue driven by a 21% increase in the connectivity take rate as a result of growing demand for connectivity, a 15% increase in gross passenger opportunity, or GPO, as a result of a higher number of aircraft online, and an 8% increase in average revenue per session, or ARPS, as a result of product mix changes and price increases. The increase in service revenue also drove increases in ARPA and average revenue per passenger, or ARPP, as shown in the supplemental tables below. CA-NA segment loss decreased to $1.6 million, down 62% for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared with a segment loss of $4.2 million for the comparable prior year period.

BA revenue increased to $34.8 million, up 42% for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 as compared with $24.5 million for the prior year period, due to a 51% increase in service revenue and a 37% increase in equipment revenue.  The increase in service revenue was driven primarily by a 41% increase in ATG aircraft online and an increase in the average monthly service revenue per ATG and satellite aircraft online. BA service revenue also included $0.8 million of revenue related to services we provided to our Airfone customers. The increase in equipment revenue was due primarily to a 58% increase in the number of ATG units shipped as we hit a quarterly record of 260 systems shipped. BA segment profit increased to $14.6 million, up 70% for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared with $8.6 million for the comparable prior year period.

CA-ROW segment loss increased to $11.0 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared with a segment loss of $3.8 million for the comparable prior year period due to increased segment operating expenses. Our CA-ROW segment is in the start-up phase, as we initiated our international expansion efforts in 2012. We believe that the CA-ROW market presents a large growth opportunity for our business. We continued to make significant investments in the third quarter to help us capture global market share, including costs incurred to lease satellite capacity for our global satellite network, which will be available to serve Delta Air Lines, Japan Airlines and future airline partners flying international routes. We expect to start generating service revenue from Japan Airlines domestic aircraft and Delta Air Lines international aircraft in 2014.

Business Outlook

Given our strong year-to-date performance at CA-NA and BA, we expect to exceed previously issued guidance for 2013 and, therefore, are raising our full-year guidance as follows:

  • The high end of total revenue guidance is increased to $325 million, up from $315 million.
    • The high end of revenue guidance for CA-NA is increased to $198 million, up from $193 million
    • The high end of revenue guidance for BA is increased to $125 million, up from $120 million
    • CA-ROW revenue guidance is unchanged at $2 million
  • The high end of Adjusted EBITDA is increased to $10 million, up from zero as a result of the projected revenue increase and lower operating expenses as a result of certain program spending shifting to 2014
  • Cash CAPEX is expected to come in below $115 million, our low end of the guidance.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report certain non-GAAP financial measurements, including Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Loss, Adjusted Net Loss Per Share and Cash CAPEX in the supplemental tables below.  Management uses Adjusted EBITDA and Cash CAPEX for business planning purposes, including managing our business against internally projected results of operations and measuring our performance and liquidity. Management prepares Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted Net Loss Per Share for investors, securities analysts and other users of our financial statements for use in evaluating our performance under our current capital structure.  These supplemental performance measures also provide another basis for comparing period to period results by excluding potential differences caused by non-operational and unusual or non-recurring items. These supplemental performance measurements may vary from and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Loss, Adjusted Net Loss Per Share and Cash CAPEX are not recognized measurements under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP, and when analyzing our performance or liquidity, as applicable, investors should (i) evaluate each adjustment in our reconciliation of net loss attributable to common stock, and the explanatory footnotes regarding those adjustments, (ii) use Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted Net Loss Per Share in addition to, and not as an alternative to, net loss attributable to common stock as a measure of operating results, and (iii) use Cash CAPEX in addition to, and not as an alternative to, consolidated capital expenditures when evaluating our liquidity.

  • Aircraft online. We define aircraft online as the total number of commercial aircraft on which our ATG network equipment is installed and Gogo service has been made commercially available as of the last day of each period presented.
  • Average monthly service revenue per aircraft online ("ARPA").  We define ARPA as the aggregate service revenue for the period divided by the number of months in the period, divided by the number of aircraft online during the period (expressed as an average of the month end figures for each month in such period). 
  • Gross passenger opportunity ("GPO"). We define GPO as the estimated aggregate number of passengers who board commercial aircraft on which Gogo service has been made available for the period presented. We calculate passenger estimates by taking the maximum capacity of flights with Gogo service, which is calculated by multiplying the number of flights flown by Gogo-equipped aircraft, as published by Air Radio Inc. (ARINC), by the number of seats on those aircraft, and adjusting the product by a passenger load factor for each airline, which represents the percentage of seats on aircraft that are occupied by passengers. Load factors are provided to us by our airline partners and are based on historical data.
  • Total average revenue per passenger opportunity ("ARPP"). We define ARPP as revenue from Gogo Connectivity, Gogo Vision, Gogo Signature Services and other service revenue for the period, divided by GPO for the period.
  • Total average revenue per session ("ARPS"). We define ARPS as revenue from Gogo Connectivity divided by the total number of sessions during the period. A session, or a "use" of Gogo Connectivity, is defined as the use by a unique passenger of Gogo Connectivity on a flight segment. Multiple logins or purchases under the same user name during one flight segment count as only one session.
  • Connectivity take rate. We define connectivity take rate as the number of sessions during the period expressed as a percentage of GPO. Included in our connectivity take-rate calculation are sessions for which we did not receive revenue, including those provided pursuant to free promotional campaigns and, to a lesser extent, as a result of complimentary passes distributed by our customer service representatives or unforeseen technical issues. For the periods listed above, the number of sessions for which we did not receive revenue was less than 3% of the total number of sessions.

Definition of Non-GAAP Measures

EBITDA represents net income (loss) attributable to common stock before income taxes, interest income, interest expense, depreciation expense and amortization of other intangible assets.

Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA adjusted for (i) fair value derivative adjustments, (ii) preferred stock dividends, (iii) accretion of preferred stock, (iv) stock-based compensation expense, (v) amortization of deferred airborne lease incentives and (vi) write off of deferred equity financing costs. Our management believes that the use of Adjusted EBITDA eliminates items that, management believes, have less bearing on our operating performance, thereby highlighting trends in our core business which may not otherwise be apparent. It also provides an assessment of controllable expenses, which are indicators management uses to determine whether current spending decisions need to be adjusted in order to meet financial goals and achieve optimal financial performance.

More specifically, we believe the exclusion of fair value derivative adjustments, Class A and Class B senior convertible preferred stock return and accretion of preferred stock from Adjusted EBITDA is appropriate because we do not believe such items are indicative of ongoing operating performance due to their non-recurring nature as a result of the conversion of all shares of preferred stock into shares of common stock upon consummation of our IPO in June 2013.

Additionally, we believe the exclusion of stock-based compensation expense from Adjusted EBITDA is appropriate given the significant variation in expense that can result from using the Black-Scholes model to determine the fair value of such compensation. The fair value of our stock options as determined using the Black-Scholes model varies based on fluctuations in the assumptions used in this model, including inputs that are not necessarily directly related to the performance of our business, such as the expected volatility, the risk-free interest rate, the expected life of the options and future dividends to be paid by the Company. Therefore, we believe the exclusion of this cost provides a clearer view of the operating performance of our business. Further, non-cash equity grants made at a certain price and point in time do not necessarily reflect how our business is performing at any particular time. While we believe that investors should have information about any dilutive effect of outstanding options and the cost of that compensation, we also believe that stockholders should have the ability to consider our performance using a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes these costs and that management uses to evaluate our business.

We believe the exclusion of the amortization of deferred airborne lease incentives from Adjusted EBITDA is useful as it allows an investor to view operating performance across time periods in a manner consistent with how management measures segment profit and loss. Management evaluates segment profit and loss in this manner (for a description of segment profit (loss), see Note 16 "Business Segments and Major Customers" of the third quarter 10-Q as filed with the SEC), excluding the amortization of deferred airborne lease incentives, because such presentation reflects operating decisions and activities from the current period, without regard to the prior period decision or form of connectivity agreements. See "—Key Components of Consolidated Statements of Operations—Cost of Service Revenue—Commercial Aviation North America" for a discussion of the accounting treatment of deferred airborne lease incentives.

We believe it is useful to an understanding of our operating performance to exclude write off of deferred equity financing costs from Adjusted EBITDA because of the non-recurring nature of this charge.

We also present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental performance measure because we believe that this measure provides investors, securities analysts and other users of our financial statements with important supplemental information with which to evaluate our performance and to enable them to assess our performance on the same basis as management.

Adjusted Net Loss represents net loss attributable to common stock before fair value derivative adjustments, Class A and Class B senior convertible preferred stock return and accretion of preferred stock. We present Adjusted Net Loss to eliminate the impact of such items because we do not consider those indicative of ongoing operating performance due to their non-recurring nature as a result of the conversion of all shares of preferred stock into shares of common stock in connection with our IPO in June 2013.

Adjusted Net Loss Per Share represents net loss attributable to common stock per share—basic and diluted, adjusted to reflect the number of shares of common stock outstanding as of September 30, 2013 under our current capital structure, after giving effect to the initial public offering and the corresponding conversion of shares of preferred stock outstanding.  We present Adjusted Net Loss Per Share to provide investors, securities analysts and other users of our financial statements with important supplemental information with which to evaluate our performance considering our current capital structure and the shares outstanding following our IPO on a consistent basis.

Cash CAPEX represents capital expenditures net of airborne equipment proceeds received from the airlines. We believe Cash CAPEX provides a more representative indication of our liquidity requirements with respect to capital expenditures, as under certain agreements with our airline partners we are reimbursed for airborne equipment, thereby reducing our cash capital requirements.
