Financial Results and Highlights

Revenues

For the third quarter ended September 30, 2015, Service Revenues were up 65% over the prior year period in 2014 to $25.0 million. The increase in Service Revenues in Q3 of 2015 was driven by both organic growth and the recent acquisitions.

Product Sales during the third quarter of 2015 were $21.0 million compared to $7.9 million during the same period last year, increasing $13.1 million or 165%. The quarterly year-over-year increase in Product Sales was driven by large orders for our solutions, and aided by sales from the acquired companies.

Direct Costs and Operating Expenses

Total direct costs and operating expenses for the third quarter of 2015 were $42.9 million compared to $23.1 million during the same period in 2014.

Gross Profit for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 was $21.9 million increasing $9.6 million or 78% compared to $12.3 million for the prior year quarter, due to the increase in Service Revenues and Product Sales. Operating Expenses were higher than the prior year period primarily due to expenses from the companies acquired such as acquired employees, higher Depreciation and Amortization, and higher Acquisition-Related and Integration costs related to the recent acquisitions.

Income (Loss) Before Income Taxes, Net Income (Loss), and Earnings Per Share

EBITDA is defined as earnings attributable to ORBCOMM Inc. before interest income (expense), loss on debt extinguishment, provision for income taxes and depreciation and amortization. ORBCOMM believes EBITDA is useful to its management and investors in evaluating operating performance because it is one of the primary measures used to evaluate the economic productivity of the Company's operations, including its ability to obtain and maintain its customers, its ability to operate its business effectively, the efficiency of its employees and the profitability associated with their performance. It also helps ORBCOMM's management and investors to meaningfully evaluate and compare the results of the Company's operations from period to period on a consistent basis by removing the impact of its financing transactions and the depreciation and amortization impact of capital investments from its operating results. In addition, ORBCOMM management uses EBITDA in presentations to its board of directors to enable it to have the same measurement of operating performance used by management and for planning purposes, including the preparation of the annual operating budget. The Company also believes that EBITDA, adjusted for Stock-based compensation expense, noncontrolling interests, impairment loss, non-capitalized satellite launch and in-orbit insurance, insurance recovery, and acquisition-related and integration costs is useful to investors to evaluate the Company's core operating results and financial performance and its capacity to fund capital expenditures, because it excludes items that are significant non-cash or non-recurring expenses reflected in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. Adjusted EBITDA Margin equals Adjusted EBITDA divided by Total Revenues. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are not performance measures calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP. While ORBCOMM considers EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin to be important measures of operating performance, they should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, Net Income or other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different than EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin measures presented by other companies.

Net Income (Loss) - Ex-Items attributable to ORBCOMM Inc. Common Stockholdersis defined as Net Income (Loss) attributable to ORBCOMM Inc. Common Stockholders, excluding Impairment Loss-satellite network, and Acquisition-related and integration costs. Basic EPS - Ex-Items is defined as Basic EPS excluding Impairment Loss-satellite network, and Acquisition-related and integration costs. Net Income (Loss) - Ex-Items attributable to ORBCOMM Inc. Common Stockholders and Basic EPS - Ex-Items are non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company. These non-GAAP financial measures are used as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. These non-GAAP measures are presented in this press release as management believes that they will provide investors with a means of evaluating, and an understanding of how management evaluates, the Company's performance and results on a comparable basis that is not otherwise apparent on a GAAP basis, since many non-recurring, infrequent or non-cash items that management believes are not indicative of the core performance of the business may not be excluded when preparing financial measures under GAAP. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation from, as substitutes for, or superior to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, or may be different from similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
