“This quarter we delivered strong revenue and operating income growth. Our pipeline remains robust, and we are experiencing growth in our commercial business,” said Matt O'Connell, chief executive officer and president. “We have excellent revenue visibility and a solid balance sheet. We also have expanded the services our customers need to turn imagery into business solutions, and we are well positioned to expand our satellite constellation.”

Total revenues were $80.4 million for the first quarter of 2010, a 77.8 percent increase from $45.2 million for the first quarter of 2009. Net income for the first quarter of 2010 was $0.8 million, or $0.04 per fully diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.7 million, or a loss of $0.09 per share, for the first quarter of 2009.

Net income for the first quarter includes a non-cash charge of $10.5 million related to fair value accounting for the Company’s previously disclosed financing commitment with Cerberus Capital Management L.P. (“Cerberus”) entered into March 4, 2010. There was no tax benefit related to this charge. Excluding this charge, adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2010 was $11.2 million and adjusted EPS was $0.52 per fully diluted share. Additional charges or benefits may be incurred related to the commitment until such time as the commitment is terminated or settled. These charges or benefits will be based on movements in the Company’s stock price and other factors.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents net income (loss) before net interest income or expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization expenses, non-cash stock-based compensation expense and other items.  We believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors because it is an indicator of the strength and performance of our ongoing operations.  However, Adjusted EBITDA is not a recognized term under financial performance under GAAP, and our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to the calculation of similarly titled measures of other companies.

Adjusted Net Income is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents Net Income before other items, net of tax.  Adjusted EPS is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents fully diluted Earnings per Share before other items, net of tax.  We believe that Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS provide useful information to investors because they allow investors to evaluate our performance for different periods on a more comparable basis by excluding items that are not related to the ongoing operations of our business.  However, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS are not recognized terms under financial performance under GAAP, and our calculation of Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS may not be comparable to the calculation of similarly titled measures of other companies.
