Second Quarter 2014 Financial Highlights

Operational Highlights

Management Commentary

"Our second quarter financial performance exceeded our expectations, despite ongoing investments in our strategic growth initiatives," said David Hagan, Chief Executive Officer of Boingo Wireless. "Once again, DAS, military and advertising were the primary growth drivers. DAS continues to gain momentum as evidenced by the signing of six new DAS agreements and our military build-out is well underway. We are scheduled to deploy more than 30 military bases this year and since preliminary service launches, adoption rates have surpassed our expectations. Advertising, which nearly doubled in terms of year-over-year revenue growth during the quarter, continues to provide a strong opportunity for us to monetize our managed and operated network."

Mr. Hagan added, "For the second half of 2014, we will remain focused on our core strategic initiatives: to acquire long-term wireless rights in large venues; to build state-of-the-art DAS, Wi-Fi, and small cell networks to address the wireless industry's capacity crunch; and to monetize those networks through our retail, wholesale and advertising offerings."

Corporate Developments

Boingo Wireless today announced that Sky Dayton is stepping down as Chairman of the Board of Directors, and that the Board has appointed the Company's current Chief Executive Officer, David Hagan, as Chairman of the Board, and Charles Boesenberg, as Lead Independent Director. A serial entrepreneur, Sky Dayton founded Boingo in 2001 and has served as Chairman of Boingo's Board of Directors since its inception.

"Boingo has never been as well off as it is today, with double-digit revenue growth and unprecedented network wins under its belt," said Mr. Boesenberg. "The Board would like to thank Sky for his many years of leadership and congratulate Dave on his well-earned appointment."

Mr. Dayton added, "Dave and I have worked hand-in-hand since 2001 to build Boingo from concept to the leading DAS and Wi-Fi provider. As I return to spending all of my time on start-ups, which are my passion, I am extremely pleased to have Dave succeed me as Chairman. Dave is widely respected and under his thoughtful leadership, Boingo is thriving and extremely well positioned to ride the small cell tsunami. No one is more qualified to deliver continued value for our shareholders for years to come."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Boingo Wireless' financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Boingo Wireless provides Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of its performance. The company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net loss attributable to common stockholders plus depreciation and amortization of property and equipment, income tax expense (benefit), amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, non-controlling interests and interest and other expense (income), net.

Boingo Wireless believes Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors in evaluating its operating performance. Boingo's management uses Adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP, and operating performance measures as part of its overall assessment of the company's performance for planning purposes, including the preparation of its annual operating budget, to evaluate the effectiveness of its business strategies and to communicate with its board of directors concerning its financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative financial measure to net loss attributable to common stockholders, which is the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, or any other measure of financial performance calculated in accordance with GAAP.
