Financial report summary

KVH IndustriesGarminSpokOrbcommIridium CommunicationsInmarsatSOS
  • If we experience operational disruptions with respect to our gateways or operations center, we may not be able to provide service to our customers.
  • The actual orbital lives of our satellites may be shorter than we anticipate, and we may be required to reduce available capacity on our satellite network prior to the end of their orbital lives.
  • The implementation of our business plan depends on increased demand for wireless communications services via satellite (including IoT applications) and via terrestrial mobile broadband networks, both for our existing services and products and for new services and products. If demand does not increase, our revenues and profitability may not increase as we expect.
  • Rapid and significant technological changes in the satellite communications industry may impair our competitive position and require us to make significant capital expenditures, which may require additional capital that has not been arranged.
  • Our business is capital intensive. We may not be able to raise adequate capital to finance our business strategies, or we may be able to do so only on terms that significantly restrict our ability to operate our business.
  • Others may claim that our products violate their patent or intellectual property rights, which could be costly and disruptive to us.
  • Lack of availability of components from the electronics industry, required in our retail products, gateways and satellites could delay or adversely impact our operations.
  • We face special risks by doing business in international markets and developing markets, including currency and expropriation risks, which could increase our costs or reduce our revenues in these areas.
  • Our global operations expose us to trade and economic sanctions, other restrictions, liabilities and exposure to penalties imposed by the United States, the European Union and other governments and organizations.
  • The United Kingdom and European Union are important markets to our business. The uncertainty surrounding the United Kingdom's decision to leave the European Union could adversely impact our business, results of operations and financial condition.
  • We face intense competition in all of our markets, which could result in a loss of customers, lower revenues and difficulty entering new markets.
  • We have a significant amount of indebtedness, which may adversely affect our cash flow and our ability to operate our business, including our ability to incur additional indebtedness.
  • Restrictive covenants in our debt agreements may limit our operating and financial flexibility and our inability to comply with these covenants could have significant implications.
  • Our networks and those of our third-party service providers and customers may be vulnerable to unauthorized or unlawful access. Our use of personal information could give rise to costs and liabilities arising from developing data privacy laws.
  • Due to fluctuations in the insurance market, we may be unable to obtain and maintain our insurance coverages, and the insurance we obtain may not cover all risks we undertake. As a result, we may incur material uninsured or under-insured losses.
  • We operate in many tax jurisdictions, and changes in tax rates or adverse results of tax examinations could materially increase our costs.
  • We are exposed to trade credit risk in the ordinary course of our business activities.
  • Our variable rate indebtedness subjects us to interest rate risk, which could cause our debt service obligations to increase significantly.
  • A natural disaster could diminish our ability to provide communications service.
  • We have been in the past from time to time, and may be in the future, subject to litigation and investigations that could have a substantial, adverse impact on our business.
  • Wireless devices' radio frequency emissions are the subject of regulation and litigation concerning their environmental effects, which includes alleged health and safety risks. As a result, we may be subject to new regulations, demand for our services may decrease, and we could face liability based on alleged health risks.
  • Our business is subject to extensive government regulation that will impact our future success.
  • Spectrum values historically have been volatile, and may again be volatile in the future, which could cause the value of our business to fluctuate.
  • Our business plan to use our licensed MSS spectrum to provide terrestrial wireless services depends upon action by third parties, which we cannot control.
  • Other future regulatory decisions could reduce our existing spectrum allocation or impose additional spectrum sharing agreements on us, which could adversely affect our services and operations.
  • If the FCC revokes, modifies or fails to renew or amend our licenses, our ability to operate may be curtailed.
  • If our French regulator, or any other regulator, revokes, modifies or fails to renew or amend our licenses, our ability to operate may be curtailed.
  • Our common stock is traded on the NYSE American but could be delisted in the future, which may impair our ability to raise capital.
  • The market price of our common stock is volatile, and there is a limited market for our shares.
  • The future issuance of additional shares of our common stock could cause dilution of ownership interests and adversely affect our stock price.
  • We have issued and may issue shares of preferred stock or debt securities with greater rights than our common stock.
Management Discussion
  • Net cash provided by operations includes primarily cash receipts from subscribers related to the purchase of equipment and satellite voice and data services as well as cash received from the performance of engineering and other services. We use cash in operating activities primarily for personnel costs, inventory purchases and other general corporate expenditures. Net cash provided by operating activities was $22.2 million during 2020 compared to $3.0 million during 2019. This increase was due primarily to higher net income after adjusting for non-cash items due to lower interest payments and operating expenses. Partially offsetting this variance were working capital changes, which were more unfavorable in 2020 than in 2019. These unfavorable changes were due primarily to an increase in accounts receivable and a decrease in deferred revenue, which were both driven by the timing of services delivered under our subscriber and engineering service contracts relative to the timing of cash receipts. Offsetting these unfavorable items were higher inventory sales as well as fewer inventory purchases and favorable changes in prepaid and other current assets, driven in part by the final installment of $3.7 million received in January 2020 from the 2018 settlement of a business economic loss claim.
