LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Boingo Wireless (NASDAQ: WIFI), the leading distributed antenna system (DAS) and Wi-Fi provider that serves carriers, consumers, property owners and advertisers worldwide, today announced the Company's financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019.



Second Quarter 2019 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue of $68.6 million increased 15.0% compared to $59.6 million in the second quarter of 2018. Growth was driven by strength in DAS and military/multifamily.
    • DAS revenue of $27.6 million increased 26.2% compared to $21.9 million in the second quarter of 2018. DAS revenue for the quarter was comprised of $16.9 million of build-out project revenue and $10.7 million of access fee revenue. Access fee revenue grew 81.4% year-over-year. Access fee revenue for the second quarter of 2019 included $3.0 million of one-time access fees.
    • Military/multifamily revenue of $24.4 million increased 45.8% compared to $16.7 million in the second quarter of 2018.
  • Net income attributable to common stockholders was $0.2 million, or $0.00 per diluted share, compared to $2.1 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2018.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $21.9 million decreased 6.8% compared to $23.5 million in the second quarter of 2018. Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined below and is reconciled to net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders, the most comparable measure under GAAP, in the schedule entitled “Reconciliation of Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Common Stockholders to Adjusted EBITDA.”

Business Highlights

  • The Company set a quarterly record for new DAS venue deployments with the launch of ten new venue locations with Tier One carriers. As of June 30, 2019, the Company had 69 DAS venues live comprised of 35,200 DAS nodes and an additional 12,300 nodes in backlog.
  • The Company deployed wireless infrastructure to cover an additional 6,000 military beds in the second quarter of 2019, bringing the total footprint to 352,000 military beds on 64 military bases.

Management Commentary

“Our strong results and momentum continued into the second quarter with the highest quarterly revenue in our Company’s history of $68.6 million, up 15.0% year-over-year,” commented Mike Finley, Chief Executive Officer of Boingo Wireless. “We had a record-setting quarter with the launch of ten new DAS venues and impressive growth in access fee revenue, which increased 81.4% year-over-year. The new venues will drive DAS revenue immediately and set the stage for future growth when additional carriers are added to each network.”

Corporate Developments

  • The Company appointed Roy H. Chestnutt to its Board of Directors, effective July 30, 2019. Mr. Chestnutt is a highly respected telecom industry veteran with over 30 years of carrier experience having most recently served as Executive Vice President, Chief Strategy Officer for Verizon Communications. The appointment of Mr. Chestnutt was unanimously approved by the Board after an evaluation process. His appointment increases the Boingo Board to nine members.
  • The Company’s Board of Directors authorized a new stock repurchase program, under which it may repurchase up to $20 million of its outstanding shares of common stock.

Business Outlook

Boingo Wireless is initiating guidance for the third quarter ending September 30, 2019 and is reiterating guidance for the full year ending December 31, 2019, as follows:

  • Revenue is expected to be in the range of $60.0 million to $65.0 million.
  • Net loss attributable to common stockholders is expected to be in the range of $(6.0) million to $(3.0) million, or a net loss of $(0.14) to $(0.07) per diluted share.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $18.0 million to $22.0 million. Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined below and is reconciled to net loss attributable to common stockholders, the most comparable measure under GAAP, in the schedule entitled “Reconciliation of Net Loss Attributable to Common Stockholders to Adjusted EBITDA – Guidance.”

  • Revenue is expected to be in the range of $270.0 million to $280.0 million.
  • Net loss attributable to common stockholders is expected to be in the range of $(20.0) million to $(15.0) million, or a net loss of $(0.45) to $(0.34) per diluted share.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $80.0 million to $87.0 million.

Conference Call Information

Members of Boingo Wireless’ management will host a conference call to discuss its second quarter 2019 financial results beginning at 4:30 p.m. ET (1:30 p.m. PT), today, August 1, 2019. To participate in the conference call, investors from the U.S. and Canada should dial (877) 407-9716 and enter the passcode: 13691909 ten minutes prior to the scheduled start time. International callers should dial +1 (201) 493-6779 and enter the same passcode. The conference call will be broadcast live over the Internet in the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website at http://investors.boingo.com . In addition, a supplement reflecting the Company’s key business metrics will be made available in the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website. The supplement and webcast will be archived online upon completion of the conference call.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Boingo Wireless’ financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Boingo Wireless provides Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow as supplemental measures of its performance.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders plus depreciation and amortization of property and equipment, stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, income tax benefit (expense), interest and other expense, net, non-controlling interests, and excludes charges or gains that are nonrecurring, infrequent, or unusual. Boingo Wireless believes Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors in evaluating its operating performance. Boingo's management uses Adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP, and other operating performance measures as part of its overall assessment of the Company's performance for planning purposes, including the preparation of its annual operating budget, to evaluate the effectiveness of its business strategies and to communicate with its board of directors concerning its financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative financial measure to net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders, which is the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, or any other measure of financial performance calculated in accordance with GAAP.

The Company defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities, less purchases of property and equipment. Boingo Wireless believes that free cash flow provides investors with additional useful information to measure operating liquidity because it reflects the amount of cash generated by the Company's operations after the purchases of property and equipment that can be used for strategic opportunities. Free cash flow should not be considered as an alternative financial measure to net cash provided by operating activities, which is the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, or any other measure of financial performance calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Lease Changes

On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted ASC 842, Leases, using the modified retrospective transition method. Results for reporting periods beginning on January 1, 2019 are presented under ASC 842, while prior period amounts are not adjusted and continue to be reported in accordance with ASC 840, Leases. Adoption of the new standard resulted in the recording of $16.9 million of operating lease right-of-use assets and $22.3 million of operating lease liabilities as of January 1, 2019.

_______________

(1)

This metric represents the number of active DAS nodes as of the end of the period. A DAS node is a single communications endpoint, typically an antenna, which transmits or receives radio frequency signals wirelessly. This measure is an indicator of the reach of the Company’s DAS network.

(2)

This metric represents the number of DAS nodes under contract but not yet active as of the end of the period.

(3)

This metric represents the number of paying customers who are on a month-to-month subscription plan at a given period end.

(4)

This metric shows how often individuals connect to the Company’s global Wi-Fi network in a given period. The connects include wholesale and retail customers in both customer pay locations and customer free locations where Boingo is a paid service provider or receives sponsorship or promotion fees. The Company counts each connect as a single connect regardless of how many times that individual accesses the network at a given venue during their 24-hour period. This measure is an indicator of paid activity throughout Boingo’s network.
