--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the RigNet's Second Quarter 2019 Earnings Conference Call. My name is Jerome, and I will be your coordinator for today. (Operator Instructions)

I will now turn over the presentation to Lee Ahlstrom, RigNet's Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Ahlstrom, please proceed.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lee M. Ahlstrom, RigNet, Inc. - Senior VP & CFO [2]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you, Jerome, and good morning, and welcome to RigNet's Second Quarter 2019 Earnings Call. A copy of our earnings press release with supporting schedules including schedules which reconcile the non-GAAP metrics we'll discuss today to GAAP metrics is posted to our website, www.rig.net, under our Investor Relations page. For those of you who would like the release in a PDF format, we've posted that as well.

Before we get started, I'd like to make you aware that we will be making forward-looking statements today. Any statements that are not historical facts, including statements related but not limited to market expectations and future plans are forward-looking statements that involve certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions. These include, but are not limited to, risks associated with the general nature of the oil and gas industry, customers and other third-party interactions, our strategy and other factors detailed in the Risk Factors section of RigNet's most recent annual report on Form 10-K and in our other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those indicated. RigNet disclaims any duty to update the information presented on this call.

And now, I'd like to turn the call over to Steve Pickett, RigNet's Chief Executive Officer and President. Steve?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you, Lee. Good morning, everyone, and thank you for joining today's call. We are glad to be back in front of you to talk about our latest performance and our results. After my opening comments, Lee will review financial highlights. Following that, as always, we'll open it up for questions.

Yesterday, RigNet reported a net loss for the second quarter of $6.2 million or $0.32 per share based on revenues of $60.3 million. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure we define in our press release and one of our key performance metrics, was $9.8 million for the second quarter. Both revenue and adjusted EBITDA were up compared to first quarter 2019 and compared to the prior year quarter. Lee will provide some color on that in his remarks.

During the quarter, we resolved the GX dispute with Inmarsat. In case you missed the news, at the end of June, we agreed to settle the matter associated with this early 2014 contract between the companies by agreeing to pay $50.75 million or the approximate value of the interim arbitration award. We paid $45 million at the end of June, $5 million at the beginning of July and the final $750,000 is due mid-next year.

We spoke about our rationale in agreeing to settle. But briefly, as preparations for the Phase 2 hearing progressed and we looked at Inmarsat's counterclaims to our own counterclaims, it was a potential scenario where the arbitration panel, which had delivered a very surprising and disappointing ruling in Phase 1, could've given us an equally bad ruling in Phase 2, driving up the cost of an award to include interest, attorneys' fees and other amounts claimed by Inmarsat. By settling for the interim award amount, we felt we were able to get value for our counterclaims by eliminating interest and attorneys' fees and capping any further downside. It was not the outcome we hoped for, but it is an outcome that lets us move on.

With that behind us, I'd like to take some time to remind you how much progress we've made in transforming the company. 3 years ago, RigNet was really just a remote Managed Communications Services company, operating in a deteriorating offshore drilling environment, where its major customers were stacking rigs at an unprecedented rate. In this difficult industry environment and with an abundance of new satellite capacity continuing to come online, we faced significant price pressure from our customers that sometimes outran the cost benefits we were able to recognize, as satellite bandwidth prices decreased.

We also had a small Systems Integration business. As you may recall, we took more than a $15 million write-down in that business in late 2015, due to core project management on 1 large project. So we had a number of priorities when I arrived, a little more than 3 years ago. They were: one, to fix the core business; two, to scale the core; and three, to expand our offerings and our addressable market through the development of over-the-top solutions. I think we have made great progress across all 3 of those areas and want to remind you of some of the highlights.

In terms of fixing the core, we focused on improving our fundamentals, our relationships with customers and our service offerings, including our issue response through our global network operations center. We have streamlined the business internally, deploying best practices across the company. 3 years ago, the company was pretty siloed in terms of its operations and internal communications. Today, we work as 1 team with a common set of overarching goals along with specific department goals, all of which are focused on delivering value to our shareholders. We invested in operational support systems that integrate our global support teams through the use of the single, common, global software platform. We've been able to take advantage of structural declines in satellite bandwidth pricing to maintain and, in some cases, expand our margins. And we've dramatically improved our proactive customer care and issue resolution protocols over the last several years to differentiate RigNet from competitors in terms of our service offerings. Constant and proactive customer care is one of our key differentiators.

Finally, we've fixed the SI, or System Integration, business by bringing in new leadership, professional sales and project management and were able to turn that business into one which is routinely meeting and exceeding both our and our customers' expectations. In the last 3 years, in that business, revenue has doubled, gross margins have doubled, backlog has doubled, all while taking less contract risk than in the past.

In terms of our second goal, we've expanded our core business. Over the past 2 years, we've done acquisitions, which have helped us build scale in the base business because, as I've said many times, networks benefit from scale. It's a key element in realizing cost savings. RigNet added network scale in the MCS, or Managed Communications Services, business through the acquisitions of DTS and Auto-Comm. And we've grown sites organically, offshore, on land, in maritime and in production. Last quarter, I mentioned that we had won 4 FPSOs with Petrobras in Brazil and that these would be turned on later this year. I'm excited to tell you that we won yet another 6 FPSOs in Brazil since our last call. These are large complicated vessels with significant bandwidth requirements. And they represent a new area of expansion for us in the energy value chain.

I'm even more pleased to announce that we've concluded an exclusive long-term, multiyear agreement to provide managed communication support Valaris, formerly, EnscoRowan. RigNet was a provider to both ENSCO and Rowan prior to their combination. But this cements our future relationship in a deal which both sides are very pleased with. We'll be providing more bandwidth to the combined fleet while protecting margins and opening the doors for additional opportunities in machine learning and cybersecurity.

We've also expanded our business in the Middle East, a significant and growing area of activity for our oil and gas customers, and built a first 4G LTE and 5G-enabled network in the Gulf of Mexico that is backed by a major U.S. telecom partner, T-Mobile.

Going back to our SI business, we've improved and grown that business, both organically and through the acquisitions of SAFCON and Auto-Comm. Starting in the first quarter of this year, we launched a government services initiative, where we're seeing a lot of interest, particularly in our cybersecurity-related products and services.

In terms of our third goal, we recognized several years ago that to thrive in the Managed Communications Services business, we needed to differentiate ourselves by moving up the stack. So we created a new segment, Apps & IoT. And while our own internal development of applications, including AVI, complete connect and our crew welfare suite have been successful, we made a number of acquisitions that have really launched us in exciting new directions. ESS added a strong IoT business. We currently provide service to over 10,000 IoT SCADA sites, largely associated with oil and gas midstream. And we continue to work on growing that business.

In May, EchoStar and RigNet announced that our companies are partnering to roll out equipment and services in Europe using S-band spectrum to increase options for customers' fixed and mobile data solutions. We think this is a really exciting opportunity.

Our 2 key acquisitions in the Apps & IoT segment have been Cyphre, our hardware-based cybersecurity product that's proven to be a platform with the development of broad cybersecurity portfolio, and Intelie, our real-time machine learning and AI solution that's rapidly gaining ground as the go-to solution for live data acquisition and analysis.

We just announced a multiyear agreement with Transocean to provide Intelie for real-time mission-critical data analysis under offshore fleet. Intelie is the fastest to implement and most efficient solution available enabling our customers to rapidly realize the benefits of their digital transformation efforts, where other solutions can take years to implement and can fail to deliver results. In the case of Transocean and other customers, we've been able to introduce Intelie, successfully complete a proof-of-value trial and execute the development work required to roll out the solution, meeting customers' expectations and deployment milestones.

As we've said in the past, Intelie has gained traction with offshore drilling contractors, global supermajors and offshore fracking -- excuse me, onshore fracking companies demonstrating velocity, versatility and value.

Cyphre has been a little slower on the uptake, but it forms a key element of our cybersecurity solutions set, which is gaining traction because of the increasing number and sophistication of cyber-attacks on our customers' networks. It has significant growth potential.

Finally, we've been able to create what we call a flywheel effect where business in 1 segment has created follow-on opportunities in other business segments. A great example is with a large system integration customer where we introduced Intelie in combination with CertifiedSafety to create a real-time workforce tracking system that's getting very positive reviews. As the projects go up, the recurring revenue for this solution will be reported in Apps & IoT. Another example is our newly introduced live IT solution, where the introduction of Intelie actually created an opportunity for us to help our customers manage the data systems that feed Intelie's real-time machine learning-based AI. Live-IT is a new IT as a service that will ensure customers rapidly realize optimal value from their digital transformation investments.

In the last 3 years, RigNet has come a long way. We used to be considered oil fields services company predominantly focused on delivering communications on offshore drilling rigs. Today, we are a global technology company, with some of the most advanced real-time AI and cybersecurity products on the planet, combined with an efficient ultra-secure network that, in combination, enables digitalization across the energy value chain, including upstream, midstream and downstream. With GX behind us, we're excited to return our focus to this ongoing successful transformation. With a strong market position in Managed Communications Services, a large owned network infrastructure in the Gulf of Mexico, a Systems Integration capability that's performing well, a rapidly growing real-time machine learning business with a long list of premier brands in energy and in other sectors and a best-in-class cybersecurity portfolio, we feel that some of the parts valuation deserves a much closer look. These businesses feed one another that is truly differentiated. We're looking across the technology sector. With that, let me turn it over to Lee.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lee M. Ahlstrom, RigNet, Inc. - Senior VP & CFO [4]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks, Steve. Recapping what Steve said earlier, consolidated quarterly revenue was $60.3 million, up 4.9% compared to $57.5 million in the prior quarter. Revenue was up by 0.5% from $60 million in the second quarter of 2018. The increase compared to the second quarter 2018 was primarily due to Apps & IoT. The increase compared to the prior quarter was due primarily to SI, and I'll touch on the segments in a moment.

GAAP net loss attributable to common stockholders in the second quarter 2019 was $6.2 million or $0.32 per share compared to a net loss of $12 million or $0.63 per share in the prior quarter and a net loss of $4.3 million or $0.23 per share in the second quarter 2018. Adjusted EBITDA was $9.8 million in the second quarter of 2019, a 16.6% increase compared to $8.4 million in the prior quarter and a 20.7% increase compared to $8.1 million in the second quarter of 2018.

Now, let's touch on the segments. Managed Communications Services revenue was $41.2 million for the quarter compared to $42.3 million in the prior quarter and $41.7 million in the prior year quarter. Gross margin in the second quarter of '19 was 39.3% versus 36.3% in the first quarter of '19 and 39.3% in the second quarter of '18. The decrease in Managed Communications Services revenue and increase in gross margin compared to the prior quarter was due to the prior quarter having higher equipment resale revenue. Also, the T-Mobile LTE build-out was substantially completed in second quarter, so there was a decrease in revenue associated with that project.

Our MCS site count for the second quarter was 1,384, up by 87 year-over-year and up by 24 sites sequentially compared to the first quarter. As we discussed on our last call, we've seen some recovery in site counts since year-end, driven by the production, maritime and other site count categories. This quarter, we gained 6 offshore rigs while several of the fleets we serve had some coal sacking that scrapping. As a result, we were down a net of 3 offshore drilling rigs in the site count. However, though the overall number of offshore rigs sites was down slightly, the monthly recurring revenue of the 6 sites we added more than offset the sites where service ended.

Apps & IoT revenue was $8 million for the quarter, up 21.7% compared to $6.6 million in the prior year quarter and flat at $8 million sequentially. The increase from the prior year quarter was largely the result of Intelie ramping up. Sequentially, revenue in the segment was, as I said, flat. That's largely because we were doing some significant development work for our customers during the second quarter, with a focus on hitting milestones which allows us to increase billings in 3Q and beyond. For example, Transocean turned up new services after the end of the quarter, and our first fracking customer turned on new services and turned up additional sites late in the second quarter. Meaning the revenue contributions from these successes will not be seen until the third quarter.

So in summary, we expect to continue to see Intelie's contribution increase throughout the remainder of the year as current customer revenue ramps and new customers are brought on.

Systems Integration revenue for the quarter was $11.1 million, up 55.3% from $7.2 million in the prior quarter, but down from $11.7 million in the prior year quarter. Gross margin for SI increased to 36% from 30.6% in the prior quarter and from 33.7% in the prior year quarter. The revenue increase compared to the prior quarter was due to the variable nature of the business with several new projects ramping up and savings being recognized on several projects nearing completion, which also benefited gross margin.

Project backlog remained strong at $37.1 million as of 06/30/19, up $17.5 million or 89.1% from second quarter 2018's total of $19.6 million, but down $5.9 million as of 03/31/19 due to work-off. Now as you can become concerned that we've seen a decrease in the backlog, remember that just like recognizing revenue on individual projects can be uneven, the pace of bidding for these opportunities also ebbs and flows as well in the EPC business, there's often a gap, which is sometimes considerable as clarifications and changes to bids are submitted between the initial bid and the final project award.

All of that to say that we are responding to a significant number of opportunities. In fact, to put the numbers around it, we received 34 opportunities to bid in the second quarter of '19. That's up from 22 in 1Q '19 and 20 in 2Q '18. Now we don't respond to every opportunity, some just aren't the right fit for what we do and we do have limited resources, but these figures should give you an idea that the SI business is healthy.

SG&A expenses totaled $17.4 million in 2Q '19 compared to $20.3 million in 1Q '19 and $17 million in 2Q '18. The decrease compared to prior quarter is primarily due to the prior quarter having elevated stock-based compensation under our 2018 short-term incentive plan. SG&A for 2Q '19 included $2.2 million of GX dispute Phase 2 legal costs compared to $2.2 million in 1Q '19 and $0.8 million of GX costs in 2Q '18. We also recorded a $1.3 million increase in the fair value of the Intelie earn-out and contingent consideration. This is actually a positive indication of how well Intelie continues to perform.

Capital expenditures were $4.6 million compared to $7.1 million in the first quarter and compared to $6.6 million in the prior year quarter. CapEx spend for the quarter included a total of $1 million for the build-out of the new Lafayette, Louisiana facility that will enable us to consolidate 3 separate legacy facilities and $0.5 million for the build-out of the LTE network with our partner, T-Mobile. We expect to complete the final few sites associated with the Gulf of Mexico LTE network, which is already carrying live traffic in the coming months. The remaining $3.1 million of CapEx was substantially composed of success-based commitments.

Finally, let's turn to the balance sheet. As of June 30, 2019, cash was $10.9 million, our outstanding debt was $111.1 million, including both current and long-term.

And with that, I'll turn it back over to Steve.

Thanks, Lee. Before we open it up for questions, I want to thank the team at RigNet for their dedication and for their determination to drive results for our customers and investors. More than 600 employees executing for our customers in over 50 countries are critical to our success. And I recognize and appreciate their professionalism and their tireless efforts.

Lee, with that, let's open the line for questions.

All right, Jerome, let's open the queue please.

Questions and Answers

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Operator [1]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Operator Instructions) Your first question comes from the line of Allen Klee with Maxim Group.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allen Robert Klee, Maxim Group LLC, Research Division - Senior VP & Senior TMT Analyst [2]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In your Managed Communications Services segment, you talked about a couple of wins, and it seems like you are adding in areas outside of offshore. Can we get a sense of adding this all together? Maybe starting off with the status of Noble in terms of how many rigs rolled off and how many are left? And then of the couple of wins that you mentioned in the segment, if we added that all together, does this imply that we could think about the segment as growing sequentially and possibly in 3Q in 4Q?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lee M. Ahlstrom, RigNet, Inc. - Senior VP & CFO [3]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allen, good question. This is Lee. Let me just answer your question with respect to Noble. We just had, I believe, 1 of the Noble rigs roll off during the quarter. We still have 3 rigs on contract, and it looks like those are expected to stay on contract with us through the end of the year. So that's a positive for us. I think, if you look at the rig sector, it continues to struggle. I think there is still some optimism from the offshore drilling contractors as you look at what we think will happen in 2020. So I would like to tell you that I think that we can see the overall market continue to grow there, as more rigs go back to work. But as you obviously know given the situation with China, the trade war, ran, all of these things create a lot of uncertainty. And I don't think we're seeing offshore operators make big bold moves in putting large sets of drilling rigs back to work. So what we're focused on is really continuing to provide excellent service to our existing customers, assist them as they pursue their own new opportunities in various basins around the world and then look for opportunities to leverage Intelie and our other offerings in a way which might allow us to increase our market share of the segment. Steve?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Steven E. Pickett, RigNet, Inc. - CEO, President & Director [4]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes, to add to that, clearly our complete set of capabilities today give us an opportunity to capture a larger wallet share. And so that's what we're continuing to focus on. It is not just offshore anymore in terms of our managed comm business. As you know, we also have a growing production-related business and the growing midstream business. And we're looking to provide solutions that aren't just solutions that deliver comms to remote areas, but instead enterprise-wide solutions that provide things like best-in-class cybersecurity protection and real-time machine learning wherever our customers might be operating.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lee M. Ahlstrom, RigNet, Inc. - Senior VP & CFO [5]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes. So I think the announcement of the Valaris contract renewal this morning here on the call is obviously a significant win for us, especially given some of the chatter that was out there in the market that's creating some fear and uncertainty around that. I think that we have an opportunity to continue to build on the foundation of that relationship and also expand it with the other opportunities that we have. But I believe that one of the reasons that they chose to renew with us was, as Steve mentioned, the proactive customer care that we do and the relationship that we build through our network operating centers over-the-top and ensuring that we are responsive to their needs and issues and keep them up and running with the best service they could possibly get. It's not just about price.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allen Robert Klee, Maxim Group LLC, Research Division - Senior VP & Senior TMT Analyst [6]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And then the Gulf of Mexico network that you -- clearly 4G and 5G that you've -- close to being finished building out. Is there a way to think about the potential revenue contribution in 2020 that this could generate?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lee M. Ahlstrom, RigNet, Inc. - Senior VP & CFO [7]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

That's a great question, Allen, and frankly, one that we actually are working ourselves internally to try and understand. Remember the dynamic. The dynamic was we spend the capital upfront, T-Mobile pays us for every site that we turn back on. Then once the network is carrying traffic and generating roaming revenue on the network, T-Mobile takes that revenue to recover its payments to us. So basically 100% of that initial roaming revenue goes back to T-Mobile. So we're kept hold in the capital expenditure department. They are then made whole and then we start on a 50-50 revenue sharing agreement. And we believe that will start some time in 2020, but I think it's very early on in terms of determining how much traffic and how much revenue that's going to generate.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Steven E. Pickett, RigNet, Inc. - CEO, President & Director [8]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And of course, it's a very unique network. It's a network that covers an area about the size of the state of Georgia over water in the Gulf of Mexico. And there aren't that many comparisons to use to determine what to expect in terms of the roaming traffic offshore. And by the way, we're really excited about having this project essentially complete -- we had a couple of more platforms yet to go, but essentially complete. It's carrying traffic and what we're really excited about is something that's very special about this network and that is the frequencies in which it operates, both 600 and 700 megahertz that penetrate these big metal offshore assets much more effectively than higher frequency solutions. So, and we're really pleased that we had the bulk of this build behind us and it certainly makes it the most contemporary network out there.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lee M. Ahlstrom, RigNet, Inc. - Senior VP & CFO [9]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And we're continuing to have conversations with them about opportunities to expand the network.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allen Robert Klee, Maxim Group LLC, Research Division - Senior VP & Senior TMT Analyst [10]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And then moving on to Apps & IoT, you spoke about that you have a couple of projects that are going to start to contribute in next quarter. Is there a way for us to think about what that can mean in terms of the magnitude of increases in revenue?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lee M. Ahlstrom, RigNet, Inc. - Senior VP & CFO [11]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, we don't give you guidance, Allen. But there is a significant contribution that we're expecting to come as we ramp up what we're doing for Transocean as well as for our fracking customers. So I'm afraid I can't really give you much more than that certainly in terms of numbers. I guess I would also tell you that we've got a number of customers that I think are in, I would call, the late stages of their proof-of-value trials where we expect to convert those to contracts as well and then begin ramping those up.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allen Robert Klee, Maxim Group LLC, Research Division - Senior VP & Senior TMT Analyst [12]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay. My last question is within Systems Integration, you talked about in prior calls that the seasonality we should think about is, I think, that growth in 2Q and then 3Q sequentially and then a decline in 4Q, is that still how you're kind of thinking about how it plays out across the year?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lee M. Ahlstrom, RigNet, Inc. - Senior VP & CFO [13]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes. I think in general that's correct. I think we've talked about in the past as being somewhat camel feet with a hump in 2Q and 3Q, but I think we may have less of a fall-off in 4Q just based on what we're seeing right now.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allen Robert Klee, Maxim Group LLC, Research Division - Senior VP & Senior TMT Analyst [14]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And does that camel shape mean that 3Q is higher than 2Q?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lee M. Ahlstrom, RigNet, Inc. - Senior VP & CFO [15]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No, I'm not going to answer that question for you.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Operator [16]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Operator Instructions) Now we have a follow-up question from Allen Klee with Maxim Group.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allen Robert Klee, Maxim Group LLC, Research Division - Senior VP & Senior TMT Analyst [17]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes I wanted to -- since I'm the only one I'll keep coming. I noticed -- it looked like a good reduction in your accounts receivable this quarter. And I know you've had a focus on improving collections. So it looks like we saw that. Any comments on the actions there and how you're thinking about this?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lee M. Ahlstrom, RigNet, Inc. - Senior VP & CFO [18]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, I hope that my AR team is listening right now to have heard you notice that mention it because they have just done Yeoman's work this quarter in working with our customers. And it's not just AR, it's been a great team effort, Steve mentioned, we're working in a way that's much less siloed today than we used to. And so sales and operations, order fulfillment team, everybody has come together to really put a focus on bringing collections in the AR number down. So very, very pleased with performance. We continue to have that as the focus area and are working through bringing more cash in the door every day. So thanks for noticing.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Steven E. Pickett, RigNet, Inc. - CEO, President & Director [19]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So maybe to add to that, we're also looking at where we can improve processes with customers in order to make this a more consistent result for the business and for our investors.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allen Robert Klee, Maxim Group LLC, Research Division - Senior VP & Senior TMT Analyst [20]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay. And then maybe my last question would be you talked about during your presentation that value of the sum of the parts of the company, I was wondering if maybe -- if we could get your expansion on that in terms of maybe how -- what investors might be missing or -- in some of the segments that you have.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Steven E. Pickett, RigNet, Inc. - CEO, President & Director [21]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I think there were a number of comps that you can look at when you kind of dissect the different areas of RigNet's business. I think, you can look at how real-time machine learning business is trading. Typically those trade as a multiple of revenue. The same is often true for cybersecurity businesses. They trade -- oftentimes trade at a multiple revenues. And our offshore owned infrastructure, we think has meaningful -- yes, really meaningful value. And on top of that, there's still a remote satellite-based managed comms business, that's performing well in a market that's generally will be moving sideways. Lee, do you want to add anything?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lee M. Ahlstrom, RigNet, Inc. - Senior VP & CFO [22]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes, Allen, when you look at it we're trading today in a difficult market at about -- look, slightly below $150 million of market cap. That's below the managed comms revenue for 2018, right? So not only are we trading less than 1x revenue for 1 segment, that's giving absolutely no credit to any of the rest of the business, particularly the Apps & IoT business, which we expect, is going to be the growth driver of the company really going forward and SI business that's just delivering great projects and great margins. So it's a little, I think, frustrating for the management team, it's a little frustrating for the Board to see the equity behavior moving as it is and because there are so many good things going on right now. And I think that's really one of the reasons why Steve chose to sort of reset the stage and help people remember what RigNet was and really what we've done with the company over the last several years, and now we've put GX behind us, we're really poised to focus on that growth.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Steven E. Pickett, RigNet, Inc. - CEO, President & Director [23]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It really builds on the momentum that we have, because as I said in the press release, we're really hitting on all cylinders as it relates to the 3 segments of our business. So we're very pleased with it. We're going into this call with very important contract extension with our largest Managed Communication Services customer, Valaris a big win in the area of real-time machine learning, with Transocean, nice growth as we talked about in Managed Communications Services out of Brazil and so, anyway, we're really pleased with how the business is performing and I think over time that will be new road.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allen Robert Klee, Maxim Group LLC, Research Division - Senior VP & Senior TMT Analyst [24]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay. You beat my numbers on revenue and EBITDA. So good quarter.

(Operator Instructions) I am showing no further questions at this time. I would now like to turn the conference back to Lee Ahlstrom.

Lee M. Ahlstrom, RigNet, Inc. - Senior VP & CFO [26]

All right. Thanks, Jerome, and thank you for joining us today on our second quarter earnings call. We'll be available here in the office if you have any follow-up questions that weren't addressed today. And we certainly invite you to join us in November when we expect to report our third quarter 2019 earnings. Have a good day.
