Management Commentary

"As the pandemic has demonstrated, wireless connectivity continues to play an increasingly critical role in our daily lives," commented Mike Finley, Chief Executive Officer, Boingo Wireless. "This need for connectivity demonstrates Boingo’s resilience as an essential business as well as the durability of our business model. Despite the challenges presented by COVID-19, we see velocity in our business continue with new wins in all key verticals including: three new DAS venues, 11 carrier contracts, a Wi-Fi offload trial with Google, four multifamily venues, and bulk-services and macro cell towers on military bases. The sequential decline in our revenue was largely related to our legacy businesses, specifically advertising and retail, which were impacted by the historic downturn in passenger travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Importantly, our team has done an excellent job managing expenses, which led to a 13.7% increase in adjusted EBITDA over the first quarter of 2020 to $21.3 million."

Mr. Finley continued, "Approximately 95% of our revenue is either contractual or recurring. We have a strong balance sheet and liquidity to operate and grow the business as our core operations continue to generate positive operating cash flow."

Business Highlights

  • The Company signed a trial agreement with Google to provide Wi-Fi offload using Passpoint technology to Google Fi devices.

  • The Company was awarded the wireless rights to design, install, operate and maintain neutral host cellular DAS and Wi-Fi 6 networks at the new Major League Soccer ("MLS") stadium currently under construction in Austin, Texas. The new stadium will be home to Austin FC and is scheduled to open in spring 2021 for the club’s inaugural MLS season.

  • The Company signed a long-term agreement with South Dakota State University ("SDSU") to provide campus-wide DAS coverage that includes the SDSU Jackrabbit’s football stadium.

  • The Company signed a long-term agreement with the Massachusetts Port Authority to design, build and operate an inner-city DAS network in Boston’s Seaport District.

  • The Company was selected by the Hawaii Tourism Authority to design, build, operate, and maintain a neutral host cellular and public safety DAS network for the Hawaii Convention Center to bring improved cellular coverage and capacity in the 5G era. This contract expands Boingo’s footprint in Hawaii, which already covers five major airports, three military bases and a multifamily community.

  • As of June 30, 2020, the Company had a total of 73 DAS venues live comprised of 40,500 DAS nodes and an additional 11,100 nodes in backlog. This compares to 69 venues live comprised of 35,200 nodes as of June 30, 2019.

Business Outlook

Management is continuing to work with its Board of Directors and advisors to assess opportunities related to a potential strategic transaction. As a result, the Company is maintaining its suspension of forward-looking financial guidance until further notice.

Conference Call Information

Members of Boingo Wireless’ management will host a conference call to discuss their second quarter 2020 financial results beginning at 4:30 p.m. ET (1:30 p.m. PT), today, August 4, 2020. To participate in the conference call, investors from the U.S. and Canada should dial (877) 407-9716 and enter the passcode: 13706957 ten minutes prior to the scheduled start time. International callers should dial +1 (201) 493-6779 and enter the same passcode. The conference call will be broadcast live over the Internet in the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website at http://investors.boingo.com. In addition, a supplement reflecting the Company’s key business metrics will be made available in the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website. The supplement and webcast will be archived online upon completion of the conference call.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Boingo Wireless’ financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Boingo Wireless provides Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow as supplemental measures of its performance.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net (loss) income attributable to common stockholders plus depreciation and amortization of property and equipment, stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, income tax expense (benefit), interest expense and amortization of debt discount, interest income and other expense, net, non-controlling interests, and excludes charges or gains that are nonrecurring, infrequent, or unusual. Boingo Wireless believes Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors in evaluating its operating performance. Boingo's management uses Adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP, and other operating performance measures as part of its overall assessment of the Company's performance for planning purposes, including the preparation of its annual operating budget, to evaluate the effectiveness of its business strategies and to communicate with its board of directors concerning its financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative financial measure to net (loss) income attributable to common stockholders, which is the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, or any other measure of financial performance calculated in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA for 2020 excludes transaction costs and litigation loss contingencies because they represent non-recurring charges and are not indicative of the underlying performance of the Company’s business operations.

The Company defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities, less purchases of property and equipment. Boingo Wireless believes that free cash flow provides investors with additional useful information to measure operating liquidity because it reflects the amount of cash generated by the Company's operations after the purchases of property and equipment that can be used for strategic opportunities. Free cash flow should not be considered as an alternative financial measure to net cash provided by operating activities, which is the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, or any other measure of financial performance calculated in accordance with GAAP.
