Petah Tikva, Israel – August 9, 2022 – Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ: GILT, TASE: GILT), a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions and services, today reported its results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.
Second Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights
The Company reiterates its 2022 guidance issued in 2022, of revenues between $245 to $265 million, representing year-over-year growth of between 14% and 23%, GAAP operating income of between $5 to $9 million and Adjusted EBITDA of between $20 to $24 million, representing year-over-year growth of Adjusted EBITDA between 30% to 56%.
Adi Sfadia, Gilat’s CEO, commented: “We are pleased with our strong results, especially with the solid improvement in our profitability. We continue to successfully capitalize on the opportunities in our pipeline, and we see increasing growth potential in our end-markets for the coming years. Looking out to the rest of the year, we feel increasingly comfortable and remain on target to meet our goals.
This was an exceptional quarter with significant multimillion dollar orders for Gilat’s next generation platform, SkyEdge IV. We expanded the global strategic relationships with our partners, the satellite operators, SES and Intelsat, and are competing on important GEO VHTS opportunities in our pipeline with additional major satellite operators. Furthermore, our SSPA business for this new and exciting market is progressing as planned, and as such, we believe we are well positioned to seize opportunities in the multibillion market of the next era of satellite communication.
We received more than $10 million in new Cellular Backhaul orders this quarter as we continue to expand our global leadership. We are encouraged with the progress in our strategic markets of Inflight Connectivity and Maritime as well as with our growing business in Defense and Enterprise, and we see a growing set of additional opportunities.”
Mr. Sfadia concluded, “Given our ongoing strong performance, we reiterate our 2022 guidance and expect a year of solid growth in revenue and improved profitability.”

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, 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.
