NSR’s Satellite Industry Financial Analysis (SIFA) 9th Edition focuses on the analysis of standalone metrics of 17 operators and service providers, while simultaneously comparing 25 metrics on a YoY basis and on a statistical 5-year basis across two chapters, while simultaneously introducing various derived secondary indicators that throw light on the future economics of the satcom industry. Various metrics analyzed in this report as given in the table below:
These metrics are split into Operational Metrics, Debt & Solvency m=Metrics, CAPEX and Cash Generation Metrics, Competitive Advantage Ratios and Break-even Fleet Wide Pricing (zero margin profit cost) in the Individual Operator and Service Provider chapters for an in-depth understanding of each company. The following operators and service providers were assessed in the 8th Edition:
NSR builds on the newest Break-even Fleet Pricing Metric post the 8th Edition, forecasting until 2021 for both FSS and HTS fleets. Break-even Pricing indicates the floor/minimum capacity spot pricing possible for a given FSS or HTS satellite/fleet with an operator, where the profit margin becomes zero. In an era of continuous price reductions, a benchmarking among several operators is made and analysis put forth on the comparative competitiveness of each operator.
The Satcom Financial Index and Dynamics chapters present Annual and 5-year trends, represented in the figures as below in Years of Backlog to Annual Revenue ratio YoY comparison and Avg. Annual Revenues per operational satellite 5-Year trends. SIFA9, while evaluating various business trends in the Secondary indicators chapter, also provides a list of FSS and HTS fleet pricing of 15-20 operators (many not publicly reporting) in the world and comments on regional competitiveness and replenishment strategy using Break-even Pricing, Revenue/CAPEX/Leased TPE and HTS minimum pricing as benchmarks.
