Globecomm Systems, Inc. : Globecomm Retains Needham & Company to Explore Strategic Alternatives to Enhance Shareholder Value
01/14/2013| 04:10pm US/Eastern
Refines Expectations for 2013 Fiscal Year Financial Results
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
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.
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
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.
