HOUSTONNov. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Orbital Infrastructure Group, Inc. (“OIG”) [NASDAQ: OIG] today announced its updated financial guidance for full year 2022.

The Company is lowering its full year 2022 consolidated revenue guidance to a range of $350 million to $375 million from its previous range of $405 million to $450 million and is lowering its full year 2022 adjusted EBITDA to a range of $4 million to $6 million from its previous range of $38 million to $43 million.

OIG’s Vice-Chairman and CEO, Jim O’Neil, commented, “The Black Bear utility scale solar project located outside of Montgomery, Alabama continues to provide challenges as we strive to substantially complete this project by the end of this year.  Adverse weather, as well as operational and labor challenges contributed to the underperformance in the quarter. While we are disappointed with the impact this project will  have on our full year 2022 adjusted EBITDA, we remain on course for a record revenue year in 2022. We expect future utility scale solar projects will benefit from our market strategy shift to a Specialty Contractor performing primarily subcontracting services. Both our Electric and Telecom segments continue to have strong performance and we remain confident in the long-term strength of our business strategy and the markets we serve.”

The company will provide additional business updates when it releases its Q3 2022 results expected on or before November 14, 2022.

Reconciliation of non-GAAP Measure (unaudited)
This press release contains a financial measure, Adjusted EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization), that is considered a “non-GAAP” financial measure under applicable Securities and Exchange Commission rules and regulations. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered supplemental to and not a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. The Company’s definition of these non-GAAP measures may differ from similarly titled measures used by others. Adjusted EBITDA reflects net income excluding the impact of depreciation, amortization, interest expense and income taxes, excluding specified items that can be highly variable and the non-cash impact of certain accounting adjustments. The Company views this non-GAAP financial measure as a means to facilitate management’s financial and operational decision-making, including evaluation of the Company’s historical operating results and comparison to competitors’ operating results. This non-GAAP financial measure reflects an additional way of viewing aspects of the Company’s operations that, when viewed with GAAP results and the reconciliations to the corresponding GAAP financial measure may provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting the Company’s business.

The determination of the amounts that are excluded from this non-GAAP financial measure are a matter of management judgment and depend upon, among other factors, the nature of the underlying expense or income amounts. Because non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effect of items that will increase or decrease the Company’s reported results of operations, management strongly encourages investors to review the Company’s consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety.
