“2012 was a record year for ORBCOMM and we are starting to see the transformative effect of our strategic growth initiatives,” said Marc Eisenberg, Chief Executive Officer of ORBCOMM. “Over the past 18 months, we have made strides in not only growing our core M2M network connectivity business, but also in expanding our focus on end-to-end solutions within key vertical markets, which enable us to capture a significantly larger portion of the value chain.” He continued, “We are also making solid progress on OG2, which is ORBCOMM’s second generation satellite constellation, scheduled to begin launching later in 2013.”
“ORBCOMM’s strong fourth quarter profitability, driven by increases in revenues, underscores our focus on growth and profitability,” said Robert Costantini, Chief Financial Officer of ORBCOMM. “During the fourth quarter, Total Revenues grew 19% to $16.2 million and Adjusted EBITDA grew 51% to $4.2 million year-over-year. Adjusted EBITDA margins expanded to 26% compared to 20% during the same period last year, continuing to demonstrate strong operating leverage in the business.”
Financial Results and Highlights
For the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012, Service Revenues were $12.4 million compared to $10.8 million during the same period last year. The year-over-year increase of 14% was the result of an increase in our core and direct channel service revenues as well as AIS revenues. For the year ended December 31, 2012, Service Revenues were $49.0 million compared to $37.5 million during the same period last year, increasing 31%.
Product Sales during the fourth quarter of 2012 were $3.8 million compared to $2.9 million during the same period last year. The year-over-year increase of 34% in Product Sales was largely due to an increase in direct channel equipment sales. Product Sales for the year ended December 31, 2012 increased 76% to $15.5 million from $8.8 million during the same period last year.
Total Revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 were $16.2 million compared to $13.7 million during the same period of 2011, an increase of 19%. Total Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012 were $64.5 million compared to $46.3 million during the same period of 2011, an increase of 39%.
Costs and Expenses
Costs and Expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $13.8 million compared to $12.8 million during the same period in 2011. Costs and Expenses for the year ended December 31, 2012 were $55.4 million compared to $45.3 million during the same period in 2011. The increases for the fourth quarter and full year were mostly due to costs associated with growth in the core business and expenses related to operating the LMS acquisition that were not present in the prior year period, offset by a reduction in Acquisition-related costs and a $0.2 million net impairment gain on the next-generation prototype satellite.
Costs of Product Sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $2.2 million compared to $2.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2011, a decrease of 5% largely due to lower warranty costs. Costs of Services, Product Development, and Selling, General and Administrative Expenses were $11.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $10.3 million in the prior year fourth quarter, an increase of $1.5 million primarily related to increased business activity and the addition of operating expenses for the LMS acquisition. Acquisition-related Costs were negligible in the fourth quarter of 2012.
Income Before Income Taxes, Net Income, and Earnings Per Share
Income Before Income Taxes for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $2.5 million compared to $1.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. For the year ended December 31, 2012, Income Before Income Taxes was $10.3 million versus $0.8 million in the prior year period.
Net Income attributable to ORBCOMM Inc. Common Stockholders was $2.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012 compared to $0.7 million for the similar three-month period in 2011. For the year ended December 31, 2012, Net Income (Loss) attributable to ORBCOMM Inc. Common Stockholders was $8.7 million versus a loss of $45,000 in the prior year period.
Basic Earnings Per Share were $0.05 for the fourth quarter of 2012 versus $0.01 for the fourth quarter of 2011, and were $0.19 per share for the year ended December 31, 2012 versus a loss of ($0.00) in the prior year.
EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA
EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $3.8 million compared to $1.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, an increase of 99%. EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $14.9 million compared to $5.8 million in the prior year period, an increase of 156%.
Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $4.2 million compared to $2.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, an increase of 51%. Adjusted EBITDA margin as a percentage of Total Revenues expanded to 26% in the quarter from 20% a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $16.7 million compared to $8.0 million in the prior year, an increase of 108%.
EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company. Please see the financial tables at the end of the release for a reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA.
Balance Sheet & Cash Flow
At December 31, 2012, Cash and Cash Equivalents, Restricted Cash, and Marketable Securities were $64.9 million, decreasing from $75.8 million at September 30, 2012 mainly due to milestone payments for our next-generation satellites, partially offset by the insurance proceeds received from the loss of the next-generation prototype satellite and cash provided from operating activities. The net proceeds from the AIG term loan that was completed in early January 2013 are not reflected in the 2012 year-end cash balance.
Cash provided by operating activities was $13.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2012. For the year ended December 31, 2012, cash of $36.6 million was used for capital expenditures, including OG2 satellite expenditures, and $4.0 million was used in the purchase of LMS.
Total ORBCOMM Inc. Stockholders’ Equity was $182.7 million at December 31, 2012.
On January 7, 2013, ORBCOMM announced a debt financing in the form of a five-year term loan through a Senior Secured Note Agreement in the principal amount of $45 million with AIG Asset Management (U.S.), LLC. The five-year term loan has no required principal amortization and a fixed interest rate of 9.5%, payable quarterly, for the life of the loan. The company intends to primarily use the proceeds to grow by providing new services, product offerings, geographic distribution and potential acquisitions into key vertical markets.
On February 19, 2013, ORBCOMM relocated its corporate headquarters to Rochelle Park, NJ. The new and larger facility that will combine the corporate offices at Fort Lee, New Jersey, and the StarTrak facilities in Morris Plains, New Jersey, will have the capacity to support the company’s future growth plans.
On March 13, 2013, ORBCOMM entered into definite purchase agreements to acquire substantially all of the assets of MobileNet and GlobalTrak, as discussed above.

|Three months ended||Twelve months ended|

|Loss on disposition of other investment in Alanco||-||-||-||305|
EBITDA is defined as earnings attributable to ORBCOMM Inc. before interest income (expense), provision for income taxes and depreciation and amortization. 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 EBITDA, adjusted for Stock-based compensation expense, Loss on disposition of other investment in Alanco, and Noncontrolling interests is useful to investors to evaluate the Company’s core operating results and financial performance and its capacity to fund capital expenditures, because it excludes items that are significant non-cash expenses reflected in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not performance measures calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP. While ORBCOMM considers EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to be important measures of operating performance, they should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, Net Income (loss) or other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different than EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA measures presented by other companies. A reconciliation table is presented above.
