Management Commentary

"The first quarter was an exciting start to the year - for both Boingo Wireless and the industry," said David Hagan, Chief Executive Officer of Boingo Wireless. "We exceeded our guidance across all categories. Our performance was led by strength in DAS, wholesale Wi-Fi and military."

Mr. Hagan continued, "DAS was very active throughout the quarter, with T-Mobile and Sprint leading venues for the first time. We signed 15 DAS carrier contracts, including five at new venues, making this our best quarter ever for carrier sales. Our military build-out also progressed with the launch or expansion of five bases and 7,000 new beds, with plans to launch more than 100,000 incremental beds in 2015. The heavy investments we're making in both DAS and military are paying off and will continue to do so for years to come."

Mr. Hagan concluded, "Subsequent to quarter end, we announced the signing of Sprint to the industry's first major carrier offload deal, which enables up to 40 million handsets to seamlessly offload traffic onto our Wi-Fi network. We expect the agreement with Sprint to be just one of many that will occur with the convergence of cellular and Wi-Fi and believe Boingo is extremely well-positioned to take advantage of these trends."

Boingo Wireless is initiating guidance for the second quarter ending June 30, 2015 and reiterating guidance for the full year ending December 31, 2015, as follows:

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, 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.
