Intelsat S.A., a provider of satellite services, has reported revenue of $651.8 million and net income attributable to Intelsat S.A. of $87.8 million, or $0.75 per share on a diluted basis, for the three months ended September 30, 2013. The company also reported EBITDA1, or earnings before net interest, taxes and depreciation and amortization, of $493.6 million, and Adjusted EBITDA1 of $508.4 million, or 78% of revenue, for the three months ended September 30, 2013.

"Intelsat's third quarter performance was led by growth in its media and network services customer sets. We generated free cash flow from operations of $333 million, reflecting the benefits of lower interest rates as a result of our refinancing activities and the debt retirements achieved thus far in 2013, as we furthered our progress on reducing leverage and creating equity value," Intelsat CEO Dave McGlade said. "Despite the solid performance, we are managing through two trends affecting our revenue growth and our operating expense profile. These include revenue declines due to ongoing effects of the U.S. government reduced spending and budget sequestration. It also includes the impact of fiber deployments and the oversupply environment in Africa, which affects our network services business."

McGlade continued, "While these issues will continue to influence near-term results, our long-term outlook remains positive as we execute on our two-phase strategy to deliver returns to equity investors:  use near-term improving cash flows to de-lever our balance sheet, while positioning the company for organic growth upon the entry into service of our new Intelsat EpicNG satellites beginning in 2016, which support the growth plans for existing and future customers. During the quarter, we announced the first customer for Intelsat 33e, the second Intelsat EpicNG satellite, launching in 2016. This contributed to our strong backlog of $10.3 billion, which provides visibility into revenue and cash flow, and stability to our business."
