ViaSat says Q1 'promising start' to 'meaningful growth' in FY19

The company said in its earnings release, "Our first quarter results signal a promising start toward driving meaningful growth in fiscal year 2019, by capitalizing on the service launch of ViaSat-2 and leveraging prior year research and development (R&D) and infrastructure investments. All segments contributed to 15% year-over-year revenue growth and even stronger 29% year-over-year new contract awards growth, which together build confidence in sustained or accelerating growth for the fiscal year as a whole. Prior investments in network and business infrastructure create the opportunity for significant margin expansion as we accumulate the benefits of growing revenues in residential, IFC, government, Wi-Fi and enterprise broadband services over the course of the fiscal year." ViaSat reported residential average revenue per user in the U.S. grew sequentially and by 9% year-over-year to $72.38. New contract awards in its Government Systems unit rose 22% year-over-year, with a book-to-bill ratio of 1.6.

Google interest ups chances of in-flight Wi-Fi acquisition, says William Blair
"We have seen this movie before" is what William Blair analyst Louie DiPalma says after Bloomberg reported yesterday that Google (GOOG, GOOGL) is in advanced talks to acquire Nokia's in-flight connectivity hardware business. Google joins a long list of technology, telecom, and media providers that have exhibited a strategic interest in in-flight Wi-Fi, "although all have thus far stayed on the perimeter," DiPalma tells investors in a research note. The analyst notes that incumbents Gogo (GOGO), Panasonic (PCRFY), ViaSat (VSAT), Global Eagle Entertainment (ENT), and Inmarsat (IMASY) have invested billions toward satellite capacity and infrastructure. The industry is all about scale and potential new entrants would not have any, DiPalma contends. He believes it would take any new entrant many years to build a network from scratch, obtain regulatory approvals, and procure line-fit partnerships. The analyst thinks Google's interest in in-flight connectivity increases the probability that a tech or telecom company would buy an incumbent in the space. DiPalma has Outperform ratings on ViaSat and Gogo and a Market Perform rating on Global Eagle.

ViaSat price target lowered to $84 from $96 at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Andrew Spinola lowered his price target for ViaSat to $84 following the company's Q4 results. The quarter was "generally solid" versus cautious expectations into the print with the exception of expenses, Spinola tells investors in a research note. His major concern into the quarter was the health of Viasat-2 and he thinks the company did a good job of addressing those concerns. The satellite is taking longer to reach peak performance, but is near peak now and will be at peak by July/August, the analyst contends. He sees a number of potential catalysts to drive EBITDA growth from here and keeps an Outperform rating on ViaSat.

ViaSat shares positioned well for long-term returns, says William Blair
All of ViaSat's divisions, not just the Government segment, should start performing "like all-stars" going forward, William Blair analyst Louie DiPalma tells investors in a research note titled "Expect More 'Warriors' and Less 'Cavs' in the Second Half of the Fiscal Year." He expects ViaSat's financials to show "significant improvement" in the December quarter and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares. The stock is positioned well for long-term shareholder returns, the analyst contends.

ViaSat price target lowered to $45 from $52 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Wilton Fry lowered his price target on ViaSat to $45 and kept his Underperform Rating, saying that despite the company's recent reset of financial covenants, it is "rapidly" running out of headroom. The analyst points to the "dampened" operating leverage from Viasat's SAC costs, the Eutelsat withdrawal from ViaSat-3b, and the "likely end to its recent working capital tailwind", which may require the company to seek an equity raise.
