NextNav Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2023 Results November 08, 2023 at 04:08 pm EST Share Signs Contract Supporting Government GPS/PNT Efforts NextNav Pinnacle-Enabled Devices Expected on Five Wireless Carriers MCLEAN, Va., Nov. 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NextNav Inc. (NASDAQ: NN) (“NextNav” or the “Company”), a leader in next generation GPS and 3D geolocation, today reported financial results for NextNav’s third quarter ended September 30, 2023. Ganesh Pattabiraman, NextNav Co-founder and CEO, stated, “As momentum builds towards addressing GPS vulnerabilities across the public and private sector, we recently signed a new contract to support the federal government’s resilient GPS/PNT efforts. The contract leverages our existing infrastructure to provide persistent PNT characterizations initially in select markets in the U.S., with the opportunity to expand across the country following initial implementation. On the spectrum front, following the receipt of the FCC’s experimental license in 2Q 2023, we have now deployed a Bay Area TerraPoiNT network transmitting 5G waveforms. We have commenced formal testing to characterize our ability to support simultaneous broadband and PNT functionalities and expect to largely complete the program by year end. Finally, as the number of devices enabled with our Pinnacle z-axis technology increases, we now have Pinnacle-enabled devices contracted across five wireless carriers. This follows our latest agreement with a new device on one of the largest MVNOs (mobile virtual network operators) in the country. These relationships illustrate our clear leadership role in E911 and position us well to drive further adoption and integration of our Pinnacle technology in the future.” Recent Operational Highlights: Deploys 5G Test Network in Palo Alto, CA: Following approval of its experimental license in the second quarter, NextNav has deployed a 5G waveform on a TerraPoiNT network in Palo Alto, California. The Company is now beginning the formal testing process to demonstrate the ability to provide resilient PNT services combined with 5G broadband data. NextNav expects to complete formal testing by year end. Signs Contract in Support of Federal Government’s Resilient GPS/PNT Efforts: The new contract leverages NextNav’s existing infrastructure to provide persistent PNT characterization in select markets in the U.S. The Company expects to expand its capabilities into additional U.S. markets upon completion of the initial phase. Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2023, Financial Highlights: Revenue: was $1.0 million in the three months ended September 30, 2023, as compared to $503,000 in the prior year period. The increase was primarily attributable to increased recurring service revenue in the current period from technology and services contracts with commercial customers. In the nine months ended September 30, 2023, revenue was $2.7 million, as compared with $3.1 million in the prior year period, driven by decreased integration revenue, partially offset by an increase in recurring service revenue, from technology and services contracts with commercial customers. Operating Loss: was $14.6 million in the three months ended September 30, 2023, as compared to an operating loss of $17.9 million in the prior year period. In the nine months ended September 30, 2023, operating loss was $43.6 million, as compared to an operating loss of $51 million in the prior year period. Net Loss: was $23.2 million in the three months ended September 30, 2023, as compared to a net loss of $18.7 million in the prior year period. In the nine months ended September 30, 2023, net loss was $55.3 million, as compared to a net loss of $27.6 million in the prior year period. Balance Sheet: as of September 30, 2023, the Company had $90.1 million in cash and cash equivalents, $7.0 million in short term investments and has $47.1 million in debt net of unamortized discount attributed to transaction costs and the issuance of warrants, with a gross value of $70 million.
