Management Commentary

Adi Sfadia, Gilat’s CEO, commented: “We are very pleased with our strong third quarter results showing continued year-over-year growth and a recovery in all our markets, in particular IFC. We are also very encouraged with the solid and continued improvement in our profitability demonstrating substantial improvement in our gross, operating and net margins with adjusted EBITDA growing by 88% year-over-year.

Strategically we are very excited with the progress of our newly launched, world leading, SkyEdge IV platform. During the third quarter, a leading service provider selected SkyEdge IV, Gilat’s high-performance, multi-orbit platform, to power maritime connectivity. We are confident that this platform will allow us to focus and gain market share in the growing multibillion-dollar market of the next era of satellite communication.

The mobility business continued to pick up, with recent IFC orders of over $12 million. We further solidified our leadership in the cellular backhaul market this quarter, with multimillion-dollar orders from both new customers and mobile operators trusting Gilat’s technology to extend their networks even further. In addition, we received multimillion-dollar orders in the Defense segment, where we see significant potential and have increased our focus, as well as in the Enterprise sector for utility and banking applications.”

Mr. Sfadia concluded, “Our pipeline continues to increase and broaden, and the release of our next generation platform and growth engine – the SkyEdge IV for VHTS & NGSO satellites – is gaining strong traction among new and existing customers. As such, we are increasingly optimistic and expect to maintain our strong momentum ahead. For 2022 as a whole, we are tracking ahead of our profitability targets, and we look forward to continuing the growth trend into 2023.”

Non-GAAP Measures

The attached summary unaudited financial statements were prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). To supplement the consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company presents non-GAAP presentations of net income, operating income, Adjusted EBITDA and earnings per share.

The adjustments to the Company’s GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of the Company’s underlying operational results, trends, and performance. Non-GAAP financial measures mainly exclude the effect of stock-based compensation, amortization of purchased intangibles, lease incentive amortization, litigation expenses, income related to trade secrets claims, restructuring and reorganization costs, merger, acquisition and related litigation expense (income), impairment of held for sale asset, other expenses, income tax effect on adjustments and one-time changes of deferred tax assets.

Adjusted EBITDA is presented to compare the Company’s performance to that of prior periods and evaluate the Company’s financial and operating results on a consistent basis from period to period. The Company also believes this measure, when viewed in combination with the Company’s financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, provides useful information to investors to evaluate ongoing operating results and trends. Adjusted EBITDA, however, should not be considered as an alternative to operating income or net income for the period and may not be indicative of the historic operating results of the Company; nor is it meant to be predictive of potential future results. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures for other companies. Reconciliation between the Company’s operating income and adjusted EBITDA is presented in the attached summary financial statements.

Non-GAAP presentations of net income, operating income, adjusted EBITDA and earnings per share should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for any of the consolidated statements of operations prepared in accordance with GAAP, or as an indication of Gilat’s operating performance or liquidity.
