LONGMONT, Colo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 3, 2011DigitalGlobe, Inc. (NYSE: DGI), a leading global provider of commercial high-resolution earth imagery products and services, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011.

First quarter 2011 revenue was $77.1 million, flat compared with the same period last year. Included in first quarter revenue is $6.4 million of amortized revenue related to NextView, the predecessor to the EnhancedView contract with the U.S. Government. Not included in first quarter revenue is $24.8 million of deferrals related to the service level agreement (SLA) portion of EnhancedView.

The company reported a first quarter 2011 net loss of $(0.7) million, or $(0.02) per diluted share, compared with net income of $1.5 million, or $0.03 earnings per diluted share, for the same period last year.

First quarter 2011 Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $55.4 million, an increase of 49% compared with first quarter 2010 Adjusted EBITDA of $37.2 million. Adjusted EBITDA includes current-quarter deferrals related to EnhancedView and, for both periods, excludes approximately $6.4 million of amortized revenue related to NextView.

Cash Flow from Operations was $60.5 million in the first quarter, up 37% compared with first quarter 2010. In the quarter, the company signed its fifth direct access program (DAP) customer and expects to bring that customer into service in early 2012.

“We are generating significant cash flow as evidenced by the strong growth in adjusted EBITDA, and are focused on improving revenue growth," said Jeff Tarr, the company’s new President and Chief Executive Officer. "Looking toward the future, we were pleased to sign our fifth direct access customer. This multi-year agreement is expected to come on line in early 2012 and to drive revenue from this important product line up to approximately $50 million annually.”
