Maxar Technologies Reports Third Quarter 2021 Results

WESTMINSTER, Colo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 3, 2021 — Maxar Technologies (NYSE: MAXR) (TSX: MAXR) (“Maxar” or the “Company”), a trusted partner and innovator in Earth Intelligence and Space Infrastructure, today announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2021. All dollar amounts in this press release are expressed in U.S. dollars, unless otherwise noted.

Key points from the quarter include:

  • Net income from continuing operations of $14 million
  • Diluted net income per share of $0.19
  • Consolidated revenues of $437 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 of $113 million

This is a non-GAAP financial measure. Refer to section “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” in this earnings release.

“We continued to make progress on our strategic growth plans this quarter, with solid bookings in both Earth Intelligence and Space Infrastructure generating a book-to-bill over two times. Notable awards included the 11th renewal of the EnhancedView program, another renewal of the Global-EGD program, and an award to continue development and operations of a classified big data analytics program,” stated Dan Jablonsky, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Importantly, we also signed a contract with a fifth U.S. ally to upgrade the country’s ground infrastructure to be Legion ready and we were awarded contracts to build two new GEO satellites for Sirius XM. Finally, we advanced the Legion construction program and continue to expect the launch of the first two satellites in the March to June 2022 window.”

“We generated solid cash flow in the quarter and good year-over-year revenue and Adjusted EBITDA growth when you consider the deferred revenue included in last year’s results,” stated Biggs Porter, Chief Financial Officer. “Earth Intelligence performance was driven by growth from commercial and international defense and intelligence customers, while Space Infrastructure benefited from recent commercial awards offset by the timing of work on certain government programs. Importantly, we are raising our full-year guidance for both Adjusted EBITDA and cash flow.”

Total revenues remained relatively unchanged as they increased to $437 million, or by $1 million, for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to the same period of 2020. Revenue in our Earth Intelligence segment was inclusive of a $20 million decrease in the recognition of deferred revenue related to the EnhancedView Contract.

For the three months ended September 30, 2021, our net income from continuing operations was $14 million compared to $84 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease was primarily driven by a decrease in other income of $98 million, driven by an $85 million gain on remeasurement of the previously held equity interest in Vricon for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease was partially offset by a $21 million decrease in depreciation and amortization expense for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to the same period in 2020.

For the three months ended September 30, 2021, Adjusted EBITDA was $113 million and Adjusted EBITDA margin was 25.9%. This is compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $112 million and Adjusted EBITDA margin of 25.7% for the same period of 2020. The increase was primarily driven by higher Adjusted EBITDA from the Space Infrastructure segment and lower corporate and other expenses, partially offset by lower Adjusted EBITDA from the Earth Intelligence segment given the decrease in the recognition of deferred revenue related to the EnhancedView Contract as mentioned above.

We had total order backlog of $2.1 billion as of September 30, 2021 compared to $1.9 billion as of December 31, 2020. The increase in backlog was driven by increases in both the Earth Intelligence and Space Infrastructure segments. Our unfunded contract options totaled $0.6 billion and $0.9 billion as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively. Unfunded contracts options primarily decreased as a result of the execution of option periods associated with the EnhancedView Contract and the Global Enhanced GEOINT Delivery program, which increased total backlog.

Financial Highlights

In addition to results reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP, we use certain non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental indicators of its financial and operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures include EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. We believe these supplementary financial measures reflect our ongoing business in a manner that allows for meaningful period-to-period comparisons and analysis of trends in its business.
