Globecomm Retains Needham & Company to Explore Strategic Alternatives to Enhance Shareholder Value

Refines Expectations for 2013 Fiscal Year Financial Results

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Globecomm Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: GCOM), a leading communications solutions provider, today announced that it has retained Needham & Company to act as its financial advisor to review potential strategic alternatives to enhance shareholder value. There can be no assurance that this process will result in any transaction or any change in the Company's overall structure or business model.

In connection with the Company's normal quarterly review process, the Company has refined certain of its expectations regarding its financial results for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013. Its refined expectations are:

  • Consolidated revenues to be between $320 and $340 million compared to the prior expectations of between $340 and $360 million.

  • Services segment revenues to be between $200 and $210 million, unchanged from prior expectations.

  • GAAP diluted net income per common share to be between $0.66 and $0.71 compared to the prior expectations of between $0.66 and $0.76.

  • Adjusted EBITDA to be between $40 and $42 million compared to the prior expectations of between $40 and $44 million.

The Company expects to release its financial results for the fiscal 2013 second quarter and the six months ended December 31, 2012 after the market close on Wednesday, February 6, 2013.

Non-GAAP Measures

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure which represents net income before interest income, interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation, amortization expense, non-cash stock compensation expense and earn-out fair value adjustments. Globecomm believes this provides greater transparency by helping illustrate comparability between current and prior periods. Under an accounting pronouncement on business combinations, changes to the fair value of earn-out payments must be recognized in earnings. Therefore, the exclusion of the earn-out fair value adjustments in the adjusted EBITDA calculation provides better comparability.

Adjusted EBITDA does not represent cash flows as defined by GAAP. Globecomm discloses adjusted EBITDA since it is a financial measure commonly used in its industry. Because adjusted EBITDA facilitates internal comparisons of our historical financial position and operating performance on a more consistent basis, the Company also uses adjusted EBITDA in measuring performance relative to that of our competitors and in evaluating acquisition opportunities. The Company's management regularly uses supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate the Company's business and make operating decisions. Adjusted EBITDA is not meant to be considered a substitute or replacement for net income as prepared in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.
