Management Commentary

"2012 was a transition year for Boingo as we positioned our business to capitalize on the massive growth in mobile data and the evolving wireless ecosystem," said David Hagan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Boingo Wireless. "Our full year performance benefited from growing and investing in our managed and operated and affiliated footprints, adding a crowd-sourced capability to grow our network even faster, investing in our software and technology platform in anticipation of cellular offload and increasing ad sales through the Cloud Nine Media acquisition. Subsequent to quarter end, we were pleased to announce that we have entered into a merger agreement to acquire Endeka Group, Inc. ("Endeka"), the sole provider of commercial Wi-Fi services to United States military bases and federal law enforcement training facilities. Growth in our managed and operated footprint within new verticals and segments is expected to contribute to the longer-term stability of our retail platform."

Mr. Hagan continued, "As we look ahead, we are excited for 2013, which should be a transformational year as we lay the groundwork for growth opportunities in our wholesale and advertising businesses. Over the course of the last decade, we have built a unique Wi-Fi and DAS business and look forward to deploying our platform to monetize the vast opportunities ahead of us."

  • The announcement of a merger agreement to acquire Endeka, the sole provider of commercial Wi-Fi, VoIP and IPTV services to six United States military bases in the West to federal law enforcement training facilities.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Boingo Wireless' financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Boingo Wireless provides Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of its performance. The company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders plus depreciation and amortization of property and equipment, accretion of convertible preferred stock, income taxes, amortization of intangible assets, stock‑based compensation expense, non-controlling interests and interest expense (income), net.

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 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 income, 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.

Preliminary Nature of Reported Results

The fourth quarter and full year 2012 financial results reported in this press release are preliminary and unaudited. The company expects to announce final results in March 2013 when it files its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012. Final results could differ from the preliminary results reported in this press release. The company assumes no obligation and does not intend to update these preliminary results prior to filing its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012. The company and its external auditors are also in the process of evaluating the effectiveness of the company's internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2012.
