Orbital Infrastructure Group Reports First Quarter 2023 Results

Must read

HOUSTON, May 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Orbital Infrastructure Group, Inc. (“OIG”)  (Nasdaq: OIG), today announced financial results for the first quarter of 2023. The Company also announced that its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2023, was filed with the SEC on May 15, 2023.

First Quarter 2023 Summary Financial Results

  • Revenue of $80.2 million compared to $70.3 million in the first quarter of 2022.
  • Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations (a non-GAAP measure) was $5.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023, compared to $3.8 million for the comparable period in 2022. The Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the three months ended March 31, 2023 was primarily attributed to income in the electric power and telecommunications segments offset by losses in the renewables segment and corporate costs. See Table in the section entitled “Reconciliation of non-GAAP Financial Measures.”
  • Net cash provided by operating activities totaled $0.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023, compared to net cash used in operating activities of $1.6 million for the comparable period in 2022.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The financial measures not prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP) that are utilized in this press release are provided to enable investors, analysts and management to evaluate Orbital Infrastructure’s performance excluding the effects of certain items that management believes impact the comparability of operating results between reporting periods. In addition, management believes these measures are useful in comparing Orbital Infrastructure’s operating results with those of its competitors. These measures should be used in addition to, and not in lieu of, financial measures prepared in conformity with GAAP. Please see the accompanying tables for reconciliations of the following non-GAAP financial measures for Orbital Infrastructure’s current and historical results (as applicable): EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations (non-GAAP financial measures) to loss from continuing operations, net of income taxes.

The Company continues to explore a range of strategic alternatives. There can be no assurance any strategic alternative will be completed, and would be dependent on a number of factors that may be beyond the Company’s control. The Company will provide updates when it determines that further disclosure is appropriate or necessary.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA from Continuing Operations

(Unaudited)


The following table presents reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations to loss from continuing operations, net of income taxes for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022. These reconciliations are intended to provide useful information to investors and analysts as they evaluate the Company’s performance. EBITDA from continuing operations is defined as loss from continuing operations before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations is defined as EBITDA from continuing operations adjusted for certain other items as described below. We believe that the exclusion of these items from loss from continuing operations enables management and investors to more effectively evaluate the Company’s operations period over period and to identify operating trends that might not be apparent when including the excluded items. However, these measures should not be considered as an alternative to loss from continuing operations, net of income taxes or other measures of performance that are derived in accordance with GAAP.

 

As to certain of the items in the table below: (i) stock-based compensation and expense (benefit) may vary from period to period due to fair value adjustments from changes in market conditions, forfeiture rates, accelerated vesting and the amount stock-based awards granted; (ii) acquisition costs vary from period to period depending on the level of the Company’s acquisition activity; (iii) gains and losses on the disposal of assets varies from period to period depending on the utilization and condition of the Company’s long-lived assets; (iv) gains and losses on extinguishment and modification of debt varies from period to period depending on changes in the Company’s financing activities; and (v) gains and losses on financials instruments varies from period to period depending on changes in the market price of the Company’s common stock and other factors; (vi) restructuring costs vary from period to period depending on changes in the Company’s restructuring activities.

 

Because EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations, as defined, exclude some, but not all, items that affect loss from continuing operations, such measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. The most comparable GAAP financial measure, loss from continuing operations, net of income taxes and information reconciling the GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures, are included below.
