Satellite Services
The Company's Satellite Services segment achieved another quarter of record revenue performance at $190.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019, with gains of 31% year-over-year and 7% sequentially. In fixed broadband services, the Company's premium service offerings continued to drive year-over-year revenue growth across both residential and enterprise markets. Mobile broadband service revenues also achieved a new high, as the Company's commercial aviation IFC business more than doubled in-service aircraft year-over-year, and by 17% sequentially. On the international front, the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019 included elevated investments in market expansion opportunities for fixed and mobile broadband services across Latin America, Europe and Asia Pacific. Revenues obtained from businesses other than U.S. fixed broadband services rose to approximately 24% of the segment's revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019. Segment Adjusted EBITDA more than doubled compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2018, and rose 17% on a sequential basis, excluding any impacts associated with the Company's ViaSat-2 insurance claims recorded in the second half of fiscal year 2019. Highlights for the quarter include:

  • Fixed broadband services
    • U.S. residential fixed broadband Average Revenue per User (ARPU) continued to grow: ARPU reached $81.99 for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019, an increase of about 5% from the prior quarter and 15% year-over-year, as consumers continued to migrate to Viasat's premium higher-speed plans. At the close of the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019, the total number of U.S. subscribers was up slightly on a sequential quarter basis to 586,000.
    • Expanded internet connectivity in Mexico: Viasat and Facebook announced a collaboration to accelerate the deployment of affordable, high-speed, high-quality internet to communities that lack reliable internet or have no connectivity at all. The collaboration will initially focus on Mexico, bringing internet connectivity to remote regions of the country, with an opportunity to expand globally.
    • Connecting Brazil: Following the close of fiscal year 2019, the Brazilian Federal Court of Accounts (TCU) provided final approval of the Viasat-Telebras contract, enabling the two companies to commercialize Telebras' satellite and enter into enterprise and commercial aviation markets, as well as provide Community Wi-Fi and residential services across Brazil. To date, Viasat and Telebras have connected more than 1.2 million students in more than 3,700 public schools as well as hundreds of additional sites, such as border patrol posts, public health units and indigenous villages through the Brazilian e-Government initiative, GESAC.
  • Mobility services
    • At the close of the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019, the number of commercial aircraft in-service flying with Viasat's IFC equipment was 1,312 aircraft – up 189 aircraft from the prior quarter, a 107% increase year-over-year. Viasat expects to install its IFC equipment on approximately 490 additional commercial aircraft under existing contracts.
    • Transatlantic service on ViaSat-2 went live: EL AL Israel Airlines and Neos, the Italian leisure airline, launched in-flight Wi-Fi service on routes flying to and from North American destinations. 
    • IFC and live television over the same Ka-band antenna: Now more than 550 aircraft in American Airlines' domestic fleet are using Viasat's satellite system to power in-flight connectivity and 12-channels of live television service.
    • In-flight streaming: As announced during the third quarter fiscal year 2019 earnings call, American Airlines and Apple announced free in-flight streaming of Apple Music, available on all Viasat-equipped American Airlines aircraft.
    • Broadening global reach: After the close of fiscal year 2019, Viasat announced it partnered with China Satcom to bring IFC service to airlines over China. This announcement followed Viasat's introduction of its second-generation hybrid Ku-/Ka-band IFC antenna system, aimed at the global commercial wide-body aircraft market.

For fiscal year 2019, Satellite Services segment revenues reached a new record as the total ViaSat-2 fixed and mobile service base began to scale. The segment operating loss for fiscal year 2019 reflected the higher depreciation, fixed operating expenses and sales and marketing costs associated with the ViaSat-2 service launch, as well as expenses related to the ramp in IFC aircraft installations. Adjusted EBITDA performance for the segment for fiscal year 2019 improved slightly compared to fiscal year 2018.

Commercial Networks
For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019, Viasat's Commercial Networks segment revenues increased 21% from the prior year, as the Company continued its rapid IFC terminal delivery activities based on strong customer demand. Segment performance also reflected revenue growth across the Company's antenna systems infrastructure businesses and other satellite networking areas. Segment operating losses and Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter remained relatively flat compared to the prior year period. Research and Development (R&D) expense for the quarter declined by $7.0 million year-over-year, and held flat on a sequential quarter basis, as the Company progressed through final module test and validation for the Company's first two ViaSat-3 class satellite payloads, and neared final migration to the capital portion of the project. Highlights for the quarter include:

  • Strong IFC terminal execution: In the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019, Viasat delivered 108 terminals. For the year, the Company delivered 704 IFC shipsets and secured nine Supplemental Type Certificates (STC) or amendments for the commercial aviation business.
  • ViaSat-3 program status: Hardware build, enhanced payload testbed capabilities and qualification testing on flight test hardware for the first two ViaSat-3 class satellites continued to progress. The third ViaSat-3 class satellite program commenced with the design configuration phase underway.

For fiscal year 2019 the Commercial Networks segment saw narrowed segment operating losses and improved Adjusted EBITDA compared to the prior fiscal year.

Government Systems
Viasat's Government Systems segment achieved another quarter of record performance, setting new highs for revenues, operating profit and Adjusted EBITDA. Fourth quarter fiscal year 2019 also marked the close of the segment's first ever $1 billion contract win year, with fiscal year 2019 segment new contract awards totaling over $1.2 billion, up 50% compared to the prior fiscal year, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 1:3:1. For the quarter, compared to the prior year period, revenues increased by 26%, to $275.3 million; operating profit increased by 48%, to $60.2 million; and Adjusted EBITDA grew by 32%, to $77.3 million. Operating results reflected strong performance across multiple business units, including additional year-over-year operating profit and Adjusted EBITDA contributions from sales of government satellite communication products, government mobile broadband solutions and network security platforms. Highlights for the quarter include:

  • Growing opportunities in the Canadian defense market: Viasat and partner MDA announced Viasat's KOR-24A Small Tactical Terminal was selected by the Canadian Department of National Defence to support the Canadian Army's Airspace Coordination Centre Modernization project.
  • Tactical data links milestone: In March 2019, Viasat reached 1,000 AN/PRC-161 Battlefield Awareness Targeting System-Dismounted (BATS-D) handheld Link 16 radios shipped. This radio provides secure, reliable access to integrated air and ground information for improved situational awareness and enhanced close air support communications.
  • Major award programs: After the close of fiscal year 2019, Viasat was awarded a five-year, sole-source Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract by the General Services Administration, with a maximum ceiling of $450 million to support rapid migration of Command, Control, Communications and Computers/Cyber (C5AD) capability best practices for U.S. Special Operations Forces and U.S. General Purpose Forces.
  • Spacecraft and Link 16 waveform expertise leads to new satellite business: After the close of fiscal year 2019, Viasat was awarded a contract by the Administrator of the Space Enterprise Consortium, under the Air Force Research Laboratory Space Vehicles XVI program to deliver and test the first-ever Link 16-capable low earth orbit (LEO) spacecraft prototype.

For fiscal year 2019, Viasat's Government Systems segment's record performance continued with revenue growth of 24% to $955.6 million, an operating profit increase of 31% to $180.0 million and an Adjusted EBITDA increase of 22% to $252.0 million, compared to the prior fiscal year.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
To supplement Viasat's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), ViaSat uses non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to Viasat Inc. and Adjusted EBITDA, measures Viasat believes are appropriate to enhance an overall understanding of Viasat's past financial performance and prospects for the future. We believe the non-GAAP results provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding specific expenses that we believe are not indicative of our core operating results. In addition, since we have historically reported non-GAAP results to the investment community, we believe the inclusion of non-GAAP numbers provides consistency in our financial reporting and facilitates comparisons to the Company's historical operating results. Further, these non-GAAP results are among the primary indicators that management uses as a basis for evaluating the operating performance of our segments, allocating resources to such segments, planning and forecasting in future periods. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of specific adjustments to GAAP results is provided in the tables below.
