Lamar Advertising's CEO Discusses Q2 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

We reduced the bonus accruals in the second quarter at corporate to the tune of about 800,000. So that’s 800000 less in experiences last second quarter that we don’t have, that we do have in the second quarter. So I think you’ll see that flatten out.

On a consolidated expense basis, for the third quarter we think that the expense will come in somewhere in the 2% range, which going forward was up for this year at about as what we guided to at the beginning of the year.

One other quick note you saw that we had called approximately 123 million of senior subordinated high yield notes due 2015. Several people called and I’d liked to know how that redemption was going to be structured. And as of right now we anticipate having approximately $90 million in cash on hand at the end of August when these notes are due and we will draw the remainder from our banks revolving credit facility to take those out and that will leave about $137 million of that issue still outstanding that we would like to address before the end of this year.

With that Sean?

First account of digital units and this is going to be as of yesterday, sort of call and this will include the 30 digital bulleting phases that we purchased in Phoenix during the course of the last quarter. So as of today we have 1564 digital units in the air, 852 bulletin and 712 were posters and again that includes the recent acquisition in Phoenix which by the way we feel very good about it. If you look at the performance of our digital platform, our large amount of digital platform has been our best performer, markets that we're current markets that we are currently in such as Chicago, Atlanta, and the like doing very well. It's clear that we're building something of interest in national advertisers and national digital book with us almost 20% in the second quarter. So we feel good about that.
