Adel Al-Saleh, CEO of SES, commented: “It’s an exciting time to be joining SES and an honour to lead this established, world-class operator on the next phase of the journey. The 2023 results demonstrate the strong fundamentals of our business and attraction of our multi-orbit offering to a customer base of world-leading organisations, governments, and institutions.

We delivered on all the financial objectives for 2023 including exceeding revenue expectations, secured €1.5 billion of new business and renewals across Networks and Video, and launched the first 6 O3b mPOWER satellites which will bring high-performance connectivity services to committed and prospective customers from early Q2 2024.

With the hard work of C-band clearing in the U.S. behind us and cash proceeds received, we have strengthened our industry-leading investment grade balance sheet and unlocked important financial flexibility which creates the opportunity to expand our capabilities, enhance commercial offering, drive free cash flow, and deliver returns to our shareholders.

While the competitive landscape in which we operate is evolving rapidly, SES is well positioned to succeed and grow as we continue to deliver differentiated and compelling solutions to our customers, underpinned by next-level execution and rigorous financial discipline.”

“At constant FX” refers to comparative figures restated at the current period FX, to neutralise currency variations. 1) “Like for like” assumes full contribution from the acquisition of DRS Global Enterprise Solutions from 1 January 2022, instead of actual acquisition date of 1 August 2022. 2) Prior year comparative restated to correspond to current year definition

Networks revenue of €1,062 million increased 6.1% year-on-year driven by growth in Mobility (+11.5%), notably from expansion of services to cruise lines, and Government (+6.1%) which delivered higher revenue from both U.S. Government and Global Government customers. Fixed Data revenue (+0.8% year-on-year) included periodic revenue of €7 million in Q1 2023, compared with €4 million in Q4 2022.

Video revenue of €967 million represented a reduction of 4.4%, compared with 2022. Excluding €10 million of periodic revenue recognised in Q1 2022, Video was 3.5% lower year-on-year comprising lower revenue in mature European and North American markets, stability in international revenue, and continued expansion of the Sports & Events business.

Adjusted EBITDA of €1,025 million represented an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 50% (2022: 54% on a like for like basis). Q4 2023 Adjusted EBITDA included an expense which was unplanned in the 2023 financial outlook.

Adjusted EBITDA excludes significant special items of €2,657 million (2022: €137 million), comprising net U.S. C-band income of €2,697 million (2022: net income of €154 million) less other significant special items of €40 million (2022: €17 million expense) primarily related to restructuring expenses.

Higher tax expense and lower net foreign exchange (FX) gains contributed to Adjusted Net Profit of €215 million. Excluding tax and FX, profitability was stable year-on-year with lower depreciation and net interest expense (including interest capitalised) offsetting lower Adjusted EBITDA compared with 2022.

Adjusted Net Profit excludes the significant special items highlighted above, non-cash impairment charges of €3,676 million, and related net tax of €101 million associated with all significant special items (including U.S. C-band). A non-cash impairment of €1,553 million of intangible assets was triggered by the recognition of the income from the Phase II U.S. C-band Accelerated Relocation Payment (ARP) and reported in Q3 2023. An additional non-cash impairment of €2,123 million has been recorded during Q4 2023 primarily impacting intangible assets and the initial O3b mPOWER satellites from the impact of lower life and capacity (as noted in the Q3 2023 results).

Adjusted Free Cash Flow (FCF) (see page 6) was a net inflow of €431 million (2022: €181 million net outflow) including lower year-on-year investing activities and interest paid (net of interest received), compared with 2022.

Adjusted Net Debt (including 100% of €550 million and 50% of €625 million of hybrid bonds as debt) on 31 December 2023 was €1,565 million and represented an Adjusted Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratio of 1.5 times, compared with 3.5 times on 31 December 2022, including U.S. C-band ARP received in October 2023. Additionally, the total amount of remaining U.S. C-band clearing cost reimbursements expected to be received in future is now approximately $450 million.

In January 2024, the €550 million hybrid bond was called and repaid from existing cash resources. Additionally, upcoming debt maturities of around €450 million are expected to be repaid using existing cash resources, further reducing gross debt, and delivering annual cash savings of more than €40 million (including the coupon on the €550 million hybrid bond).

Contract backlog on 31 December 2023 was €4.3 billion (€5.2 billion gross backlog including backlog with contractual break clauses). This included over $850 million of fully protected contract backlog ($1 billion gross backlog) for SES-17 and O3b mPOWER combined.

The Board of Directors is proposing a Full Year 2023 dividend of €0.50 per A-share (€0.20 per B-share), consistent with the stable to progressive dividend policy, to be paid on 18 April 2024 subject to shareholders’ approval at the Annual General Meeting on 4 April 2024.

For the Full Year 2024 dividend, SES intends to move to a semi-annual distribution with an interim dividend of €0.25 per A-share (€0.10 per B-share) to be paid in October 2024 and final dividend, subject to shareholder approval, of at least €0.25 per A-share (€0.10 per B-share) to be paid in April 2025.

The share buyback programme of up to €150 million was started in November 2023 and is being executed under the authorisation given by the Annual General Meeting of shareholders held on 6 April 2023. At 31 December 2023, 4 million A-shares had been purchased at an average price of approximately €5.50 per A-share. Under the authorisation, SES can purchase up to 20 million A-shares and up to 10 million B-shares in equal proportion to maintain the ratio of two A-shares to one B-share, as required by the Articles of Association. The aggregate value of the programme shall not exceed €150 million, and the shares acquired are intended to be cancelled, reducing the total number of voting and economic shares in issue.

For Full Year 2024, group revenue and Adjusted EBITDA (assuming an FX rate of €1=$1.09, nominal satellite health, and nominal launch schedule) are expected to be in the range of €1,940-2,000 million and €950-1,000 million respectively, with growth in Networks revenue expected to mostly offset lower year-on-year Video revenue.

Capital expenditure (net cash absorbed by investing activities excluding acquisitions, financial investments, U.S. C-band repurposing, and assuming an FX rate of €1=$1.09) is expected to be in the range of €500-550 million in 2024 with an average annual capital expenditure of approximately €350 million for the period 2025-2028.

ALTERNATIVE PERFORMANCE MEASURES

SES regularly uses Alternative Performance Measures (‘APM’) to present the performance of the group and believes that these APMs are relevant to enhance understanding of the financial performance and financial position. These measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies and are not measurements under IFRS or any other body of generally accepted accounting principles, and thus should not be considered substitutes for the information contained in the group’s financial statements.

Alternative Performance Measure

Definition

Reported EBITDA and EBITDA margin

EBITDA is profit for the period before depreciation, amortisation, net financing cost, and income tax. EBITDA margin is EBITDA divided by revenue.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin
