Adi Sfadia, Gilat’s CEO, commented: “We are pleased with our strong results, especially with the solid improvement in our profitability. We continue to successfully capitalize on the opportunities in our pipeline, and we see increasing growth potential in our end-markets for the coming years. Looking out to the rest of the year, we feel increasingly comfortable and remain on target to meet our goals.
This was an exceptional quarter with significant multimillion-dollar orders for Gilat’s next-generation platform, SkyEdge IV. We expanded the global strategic relationships with our partners, the satellite operators, SES and Intelsat, and are competing on important GEO VHTS opportunities in our pipeline with additional major satellite operators. Furthermore, our SSPA business for this new and exciting market is progressing as planned, and as such, we believe we are well positioned to seize opportunities in the multibillion market of the next era of satellite communication.
We received more than $10 million in new Cellular Backhaul orders this quarter as we continue to expand our global leadership. We are encouraged with the progress in our strategic markets of Inflight Connectivity and Maritime as well as with our growing business in Defense and Enterprise, and we see a growing set of additional opportunities.”
Mr. Sfadia concluded, “Given our ongoing strong performance, we reiterate our 2022 guidance and expect a year of solid growth in revenue and improved profitability.”
