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.

  • 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.

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.
