  • Backlog of $495.3 million as of June 30, 2022, with $291.0 million expected to be recognized in the next twelve months.

Item Subsequent to the End of Second Quarter

  • Rebranded to Orbital Infrastructure Group to better reflect Company's go-forward strategy

"Our second quarter results reflect the continued strength of our infrastructure services platform, including our Electric Power and Telecommunications segments," said Jim O'Neil, Vice Chairman and CEO of Orbital Infrastructure Group. "Our backlog and end market drivers remain strong thanks to historic spending to rebuild our electric grid and expand broadband access. Overall, we remain confident in our strategy and believe the mega-trends across our segments will lead to long-term shareholder value."

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Total revenue was $93.9 million, compared to $70.3 million in the previous quarter and $11.5 million in the second quarter of 2021. The sequential and year-over-year improvement is primarily due to the acquisitions of GTS and Front Line Power last year.

Electric Power revenue for the second quarter was $41.3 million, compared to $39.7 million in the prior quarter and $4.9 million in the second quarter of 2021. The increase was primarily due to the acquisition of Front Line Power. Telecommunications revenue for the second quarter was $20.4 million, compared to $16.1 million in the prior quarter and $6.1 million in the second quarter of 2021. Renewables revenue  for the first quarter was $32.3 million, compared to $14.5 million in the prior quarter and $0.5 million in the second quarter of 2021. 

Gross profit in the second quarter was $9.8 million, compared to gross profit of $11.6 million in the prior quarter and gross loss of $2.9 million in the second quarter of 2021. Total operating expenses in the second quarter were $17.5 million, compared to $13.4 million in the prior quarter and $14.7 million in the second quarter of 2021. Loss from continuing operations before taxes in the second quarter was $29.7 million, compared to a loss of $36.4 million in the first quarter, and loss of $17.3 million in the second quarter of 2021.

Full Year 2022 Outlook

The Company is raising its full-year consolidated revenue guidance to a range of $405 million to $450 million, from a range of $375 million to $425 million, and reaffirming its full-year Adjusted EBITDA guidance of $38 to $43 million.  The revenue revision is due to improved performance with its Electric Power and Telecommunications segments, which are experiencing significant demand for its services, partially offset by the Renewables segment.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures|

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA from Continuing Operations for the Three and Six Months Ended June 30, 2022 and 2021

The following table presents reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations to loss from continuing operations, net of taxes for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021. These reconciliations are intended to provide useful information to investors and analysts as they evaluate the Company's performance. EBITDA from continuing operations is defined as loss from continuing operations before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations is defined as EBITDA from continuing operations adjusted for certain other items as described below. We believe that the exclusion of these items from loss from continuing operations enables management and investors to more effectively evaluate the Company's operations period over period and to identify operating trends that might not be apparent when including the excluded items. However, these measures should not be considered as an alternative to loss from continuing operations or other measures of performance that are derived in accordance with GAAP. As to certain of the items below, (i) stock-based compensation and expense may vary from period to period due to fair value adjustments from changes in market conditions, forfeiture rates, accelerated vesting and amounts granted; (ii) acquisition costs vary from period to period depending on the level of Orbital Infrastructure's acquisition activity; (iii) gains and losses on the disposal of assets varies from period to period depending on operational wear and tear and condition of the Company's fixed assets; (iv) gains and losses on extinguishment and modification of debt varies from period to period depending on changes in the Company's financing activities; and (v) fair value adjustments to equity-linked financial instrument liabilities varies from period to period depending on changes in the market price of Orbital Infrastructure's common stock and certain assumptions used in fair valuation calculations. Because EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations, as defined, exclude some, but not all, items that affect loss from continuing operations, such measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. The most comparable GAAP financial measure, loss from continuing operations, net of income taxes and information reconciling the GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures, are included below.

Estimated EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA from Continuing Operations for the Full Year 2022

The following table presents reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations to loss from continuing operations, net of income taxes for the full year ending December 31, 2022. These reconciliations are intended to provide useful information to investors and analysts as they evaluate the Company's expected performance. EBITDA from continuing operations is defined as loss from continuing operations before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations is defined as EBITDA from continuing operations adjusted for certain other items as described below. We believe that the exclusion of these items from loss from continuing operations enables management and investors to more effectively evaluate the Company's operations period over period and to identify operating trends that might not be apparent when including the excluded items.
