Satellite service provider Intelsat S.A. published its second quarter results for 2013. The company reported revenue of $653.8 million and a net loss attributable to Intelsat S.A. of $408.3 million, or $4.19 per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2013.

The net loss includes $366.8 million for pre-tax charges related to early extinguishment of debt resulting from debt paydowns resulting from the company's April 2013 initial public offering and debt refinancing activity in the second quarter. The company also reported EBITDA1 , or earnings before net interest, taxes and depreciation and amortization, of $439.2 million, and Adjusted EBITDA1 of $509.4 million, or 78% of revenue, for the three months ended June 30, 2013.

Intelsat CEO Dave McGlade said, "With the completion of our April IPO and successful debt refinancing initiatives in the first half of 2013, we're driving a positive cycle of delivering our balance sheet. Lower interest costs and reduced capital expenditures will enable increased cash flow, which in turn should allow us to further reduce debt. I'm confident Intelsat is well-positioned to create value for all of its stakeholders.

"The Intelsat team is executing against our operational priorities for 2013. New business on video neighborhood satellites and on our broadband mobility infrastructure is driving on-network revenue growth in our network services and media businesses. Declines in our government business, due to the U.S. government budget sequestration and troop drawdowns, were reflected primarily in off-network revenues. Overall, revenue and Adjusted EBITDA grew at 2% and 4%, respectively, as compared to the second quarter of 2012."

McGlade continued, "During the quarter, we furthered our commitment to our next-generation fleet design, announcing manufacturing commitments for four additional satellites to be deployed over the coming years as we replace existing satellites with the innovative, high-throughput and cost-efficient Intelsat EpicNG platform. Leading up to the launch of those satellites, we are working with strategic customers to create portfolios of services on the current fleet that satisfy today's requirements while providing a bridge to our customers' future growth needs on EpicNG . Progress on this front is demonstrated in our strong backlog of $10.4 billion, providing visibility into revenue and cash flow, and stability to our business."
